Injured Players Return To Practice Session

Sweet's Fine Punting Is
Feature Of Long Drill;
Hook May Start
With all the injured players on the
varsity squad once again reporting
for active duty, Coach Harry Kipke
planned to send his charges through
an extended defensive drill today in
the final intensive practice before
Saturday's game with the Northwest-
ern Wildcats.
Captain Matt Patanelli left the
University Hospital to report in uni-
form for yesterday session, but will
postpone any running drills until Fri-
day. Team physicians said that he
will be in shape to play in the final
home game of the season and his last
in the Michigan stadium.
Cooper On Varsity.
Bob Cooper, number one tailback
until he was injured in scrimmage
immediately before the Columbia
game, took a regular workout with
the rest of the first team, alternat-
ing at that position with Wally Hook,
who at the present time holds the
Kipke nod for the starting call. Tak-
ing part in the punting and kick re-
ceiving drills, Cooper showed little
trace of the injury that has kept him
out of the last two games.
The third reporting member was
Stark Ritchie, who took over Coop-
er's starting position in the last two
games. His charlie horse bothered
him not at all as he went through
the same drills as Cooper on the sec-
ond team.
Outstanding feature of the entire
afternoon's practice was the perfect-
ly placed punts of the fullback Ced
Sweet. He was booting them 60 and
65 yards under pressure and gave
promise of extending the Wildcat
Steve Toth in their much promised
punting drill Saturday.
Hook Faces Battle
Hook stands a hard battle to re-
tain the Kipke choice if Cooper keeps
on in the way that he was playing
yesterday. The former Detroit Cool-
ey High star didn't fumble one punt
in the kicking drills.
"If he plays like that the rest of
the week, I'll be tempted to start him
at his old position," Coach Kipke said.
In the battle for starting positions
on the right side of the line, George
Marzonie at guard and Jim Lincoln
at tackle had the first call yesterday.
Bill Hewitt Is
Named On Pro
All-Star Team
NEW YORK, Nov. 11.-P)-First
returns from the National Profes-
sional Football League front, where
the players finally are coming up with
that good old college try, indicate the
all-star team for 1936 will line up
with nine veterans and two freshmen.
The writers' consensus figures the
lineup as follows:
Ends, Bill Hewitt, Chicago Bears,
and Milc Gantenbein, Green Bay;
tackles, Joe Stydahar, Bears, and
Glen "Turk" Edwards, Boston;
guards, Lon Evans, Green Bay, and
George "Bullet" Rado, Pittsburgh;
center, Mel Hein, New York; quar-
terback, Dutch Clark, Detroit; half-
backs, Alphonse "Tuffy" Leemans,
New York, and Cliff Battles, Boston;
fullback, Bronko Nagurski, Bears.
We still like college football with
its alumni, bands and cheer leaders,
but nothing on the collegiate grid-

irons could be assembled to approach
that lineup. It rates as the perfect
team with stars that have not been
dimmed in any kind of going, in eith-
er 'college or pro football. It repre-
sents the best of the small college
and big university fields, splotched
with color and geared with tremen-
dous power. As a quartet, the backs
have gained 1,828 yards in 419 tries,
an average of 4.3 yards a whack.
Bill Hewitt came from Michi-
gan. All he could get was honorable
mention on the All-American in 1931.
But in the pro game he's rated as the
greatest end ever in action. He's so
fast he's called "Offside Hewitt." He
knows all the tricks and how to use

Known as the "Galloping Dons" these two backs are rated highly on
the Northwestern fooiball team.. They are Dln Heap, triple threat half-
back and Don Geyer, fullback. Geyer is at present leading the Big Ten
secrcrs with 25 points and the other Don is only seven points behind.



ures Tell The Story Of Promisingisindk
Greatness Of Freshman Track Squad Coach Harry Kipke, who eats
drzinks and sleeps football these days.



Professor Kenneth J. Doherty,
head of the freshman track depart-
ment of the University of Michigan,
is a very happy man indeed as he
views the present crop of freshmen
enrolled under him for first semester
track and field training.
Professor Doherty, better known as
Ken, while not passing out any rash
predictions was glad to hand out a
few figures on the past performances
of his yearlings, and if those figures
don't lie he doesn't have to make
any predictions, rash or otherwise.
Those figures tell the story. The
tale, briefly, is that if Old Man Ineli-
gibility doesn't take a swat at the
cinder class of 1940 they should turn
out to be the greatest freshman track
crew that ever sank a spike into
Ferry Field.
Weak Only In Sprints
The above - mentioned figures,
which forecast fat years on the
cinder paths for the Wolverines, show
a squad which is equalled in bal-
ance by only one freshman team in
the track history of Michigan, the
squad of 1937, generally conceded to
be the outstanding group of track-
sters to enter Michigan at one time.
Coach Doherty can count his new
crop weak in only one field, the
sprints, and even in that depart-
ment prospects of improvement are
far from black.
First, let all who doubt look over
the group of high jumpers who have
moved in at the Field House. Num-.
ber one man of that stellar group is
Wesley Allen of Glenville High
School at Cleveland, O. This crack
Negro high jumper considers it a very
poor afternoon when he can't clear
6 feet 3 inches and he has been
known to top 6 feet 5%/2 inches when
the heat was on. Allen, needless to
add, is Ohio State champion. Aug-
menting Allen will be Carl Culver,
John Kutsche, and Frank Feely all
jumpers who have crossed the bar at
6 feet or better.
Versatile Hurdler
Another Ohio, State champion who
migrated to Ann Arbor this year is
Stanley Kelly of Lakewoodhwho has
topped the 120 yard high hurdles in
15.4. Besides being a hurdler of no
mean ability Kelly resembles Cap-
tain Bob Osgood in that he also has
a talent for the quarter mile, turn-
ing the distance in close to 51 sec-
onds. Close on the heels of Kelly, if
not ahead of him, will be Sherman
Olmstead and, again, John Kutsche.
Tphese three yearlings comprise the
most promising group of freshman
hurdlers who ever brought their tal-
ents to Michigan, according to Do-
To continue in the championship
theme of the story the figures tell,
we would like to call attention to
Ralph Schwarzekopf of Saginaw who
is on the books with a 4:25.4 mile.
Schwarzekopf may be classed as the
top freshman miler in many a year.
He is a runner who is good in spite
of himself for the manner in which
he chooses to run is a sight to behold
as he gallops from one end of the
line of runners to the other, appear-
ing to end up in front by mere chance.
