Varsity Gets New Plays For Saturday's Wildcat Game

, U " ., b Ia; ~ .

Bad Ankle May

From Starting
Varsity Is Given Intensive
Drills On New Running
And PassingPlays
Running through a light drill with
intensive work on new passing and
running plays, the Varsity football
players yesterday began a week of
concentrated effort towards perfect-
ing an attack that may accomplish
what the Wisconsin Badgers narrowly
missed doing last Saturday, upsetting
the nation's leaders, the Northwest-
ern Wildcats, when they invade Ann
Arbor Saturday.
Most disquieting factor in the Wol-
verine camp was the announcement
by team physicians that Captain Matt
Patanelli may not be able to start
against the Purple. A badly sprained
ankle, that kept him out of the great-
er part of the game against the Quak-
ers, confined him to the sidelines to-
day while Art Valpey and Elmer Ged-
eon alternated at his flanking posi-
Ritch' On Sidelines
Equally serious was the charlie
horse suffered by Stark Ritchie in
the Pennsylvania game. He, too, was
kept on the sidelines while Wallie
Hook received the attention of the
coaches, as it appeared that he would
assume the wingback's duties for the
greater part of the Wildcat game.
Bob Cooper, number one man at
the injury jinxed position, ran
through a short workout, but took
no part in the signal drills. His arm
is still weak, and it appears that his
only chance of seeing action again
will be in the final game of the sea-
son against Ohio State.
Two more changes in the lineup
appeared imminent as the regulars
ran through their practice while the
reserves were scrimmaging on the
Ferry Field gridiron. George Mar-
zonie, fully recovered from a badly
bruised leg that has bothered him fo
the past two weeks, is again the regu-
lar at right guard, and Forrest Jor-
dan has displaced Earle Luby and
Jim Lincoln at right tackle.
Kipke Grooming Line
Dutch VandeWater and Jack
Brennan will undoubtedly see action
against the Wildcats, as will Fred
Ziem, who started at right guard
against the Quakers. But Coacl-
Harry Kipke is grooming that side o
the line as a result of Coach Wallie
Weber's warning that the left side o
the Purple line is the strongest
Yesterday's scrimmage for the re-
serves was the only rough worl
planned for the squad this week by
Coach Kipke, outside of the usua:

scouted Northwestern in its last thre

Yearling Court
Candidates Cut
To 40_Players
Team Enters Second Week
Of Drills; Squad Is Not
As Large As Last Year
Forty out of 50 aspirants reporting
at the initial call remain on the
freshman basketball squad following
the first cut announced by Coach Ray
Fisher after more than a week's prac-
Many of the players look promising
in all phases of the game, but it is
hard to tell at this stage just how
the different candidates stack up.
Although the number of men turn-
ing out was a great deal less than the
80 that came out last year, Coach
Fisher feels that comparative ability
is about equal. He expects to form
at least one good team from the
freshmen he has on hand.
Cuts in the roster will continue to
be made at frequent intervals until
Varsity practice starts. At that time
Fisher hopes to have between 10 and
15 freshmen scrimmaging the Var-
sity. For the next two weeks until'

two, three, four, six, 11 and 12-yard
markers and another was downed by
Hauze. The only one that Stark
Ritchie got a chance to run back was
the one that Murray kicked from his
one-yard line at the beginning of
the second half. Stark returned this
boot 14 yards to give Michigan a
grand total of 14 yards return of
punts or an average of 1.75 yards per
Lew Elv.erson, on the other hand,
nullified a great deal of the effective-
ness of some very good kicking by Ced
Sweet by returning his punts 122
yards or an average of 13.5 yards a
punt. Ced turned in a 35-yard av-
erage for himself which was very
stellar booting when you consider the
fact that three-fourths of his kicks
were from the end 'zone.
Just before the game, a Philadel-
phia newspaper came out with a
story on the lack of good punting at
Penn and the fact that Michigan
teams had always been noted for
excellence in this department. We're
still pretty well satisfied with our
punting as handled by Ced Sweet but
with the possible exception of Coach
Harry Kipke's punting against Ohio

A.G.K. Brown Charges-
HE 1936 Olympic Games and their
attendant controversies have been
forgotten for another couple of years
at least, but in view of the criticisms
and comments that took up thou-
sands of inches in American newspa-
pers last summer it is still interesting
to hear what other countries thought
of the big Nazi show.
Coach Matt Mann of the Var-
sity swimming team brought back
from his recent trip to England a
clipping quoting from an article
by A.G.K. Brown, the great quar-
ter-miler who was second behind
America's Archie Williams at Ber-
No comment on the words of the
crack British runner is necessary, I
think; his words speak for them-
selves. The clipping from one of the
large English dailies follows:
"Mr. A.G.K. Brown, the Cambridge
Athletic President, who was second in
the 400 meters at the Olympic Games,
in a very out-spoken article in the
'Granta,' a university journal, says:
' One thing ought to be said
without reserve: that the Berlin
crowd was probably the most un-
pleasant one before which ath-
letes have had the misfortune
to compete. When the head of a
state sets the example by ap-
plauding only competitors from
his own nations, the people may
find it difficult to be well man-
"'To keep runners waiting on their
marks while you sing not only your
national anthem, but your party song
as well, in honor of the quick-firing
pistol champion, may be put down as
over-enthusiasm. But on the after-
noon when Jack Lovejack breaks the
world's record for the 1,500 meters,'
to reserve your largest roar of ap-
plause for an unfortunate Swede, who
happens to conclude the javelin
throwing competition with a moderate
effort, because it'means your com-
patriot has won, and to hoot and
whistle American competitors in the
pole vault because you want their
colored Japanese rivals to win-all
this deserves stronger language.

idea that we were going to watch

Concerning Jesse Owens
IT SEEMS that I was wrong above
t! hen I said that the last Olympics
had for the most part been forgotten
in this country. The editors of The
Saturday Evening Post remember the
games well enough to devote a rela-
tively goodly-sized portion of last
week's issue of their magazine to an
article by Larry Snyder, Ohio State
University's track coach, entitled
"My Boy Jesse." I just now had my
attention called to the piece and I
read it immediately.
I have heard many comments
pro and con on Larry Snyder
in general since first I began to
see the light on Michigan and
Big Ten athletics. And now I do
not know what to think of this
very interesting article by the
Buckeye coach.
Is it a case of 'sour grapes?' Is it
egotism? Is it unwarranted self-
importance? Or is it true sincerity of
feeling mixed with a great deal of
pent-up emotion finding an outlet for
the first time? I wish I knew the
Larry minces no phrases as he
tells the story of the past Olym-
piad as the Games affected Jesse
Owens, Ohio State's winner of
four first-place medals at Berlin.
Ile tells many things I have
wanted to know since early Aug-
ust. He gives his readers a deeper
insight into the makeup of the
great Owens. He takes another
series of deep cuts into the work-
ings of the much-attacked A.A.U.
And he does assume a good deal
of credit for the success of the
"Ebony Antelope."
What sort of a man Larry Snyder
is, I still don't know. (And I wish I
did). But his article is one every
sports fan should read.
