Game 12th In Series
Coach Waldorf has a small army
of capable backs at his command,
and it is almost impossible to name
a starting quartet before game time.
Don Heap, Don Geyer and Bernie
Jefferson, colored Grand Rapids
sophomore, are the running stars of
the group, and it is possible that
Waldorf may start all three-with
Fred Vanzo, furious blocker, at quar-
Steve Toth, punter de-luxe and one
of the heroes of the Minnesota game,
will be in at fullback before the game
is very old if he does not start, and
blocking Ollie Adelman can be de-
pended upon to shine when he enters
the fray.
Today's game is the 12th between
the two teams, with Michigan having
been victorious seven times. The
Wolverines close' their 1936 season at
Columbus next Saturday, meeting

Wolverine tacklers will have their

backfield today. The 158-pound
halfback, known as "The boy with
the swivel hips and the perpetual
motion legs," hails from Milwaukee.
Jackson High

By 13-6 Score;
Ann Arbor High School's football
team closed its season at Withington
Stadium in Jackson last night, drop-
ping the game 13-6 after leading 6-0
at half time against Jackson High
Jackson held the edge of a scoreless
battle until midway in the second
period when a wave of Ann Arbor
players recovered a Jackson fumble
on the home team's 11-yard line,
where Bob Westfall's kick had gone
out of bounds. Westfall reached the
six-yard line through center, and on
the next play Louis Kalb went over
around left end.
Kalb led the way to the tying
score in the third quarter when he
fumbled Moelaart's high punt, Sum-
ner recovering for Jackson on the
Ann Arbor 32. Two plays later Moel-
aart's partially blocked pass was
snared by Captain Growthers, Jack-
son center, who scampered across the
goal with the whole line giving him

(Daily Sports Editor)
Keep' em Crossed.. ..
"KEEP your fingers crossed" was
Coach Harry Kipke's parting re-
mark as I walked out of his office
yesterday afternoon.) And I'm do-
ing it.) Kip is not being so rash as
to predict a win for his young team
over the most prominent contender
for the national, championship, but
he does say that the Wolverines are
a good enough bunch of players to
turn the trick if they get the jump
on their powerful opponents. And
those things have been known to hap-
pen, you know. Football is like that.
It would be one of the biggest upsets
of the season, granted, but it is far
from being an impossibility.
* * * ,
HAL TOTTEN, National Broadcast-
ing Company announcer who will
send today's game over the air waves
to thousands of listeners, was in Kip's
office yesterday getting some dope
on what to expect when the Wolver-
ines are on the offense. And he did
seem well impressed.
A short, stocky figure who once was-
a second-basemen for Northwestern,
Totten had little to say about the
Wildcats. He sang the praisesof
Fred Vanzo and end John Kovatch
and said that Michigan was getting a
big break with the inability of Leon
Fuller, regular center for Coach
Lynn Waldorf's team, to play today
because of injuries.
"Fuller and Capt. Steve Reid at
guard pile up the other team's plays,"
Totten grinned, "and Vanzo comes
along and knocks them over."

De-Emphasis Again ...
ANOTHER prominent E a s t e r n
sports writer has added his bit
on the Michigan football situation.
Tommy Holmes of the Brooklyn
Eagle had quite anarticle on his
page the other day under the head-
line: "Michigan Grid Team Is Vic-
tim of De-Emphasis." Mr. Holmes
bases his remark on anstatement the
veracity of which I can not verify at
the present-that 21 captains of
Michigan high school teams applied
for admission at the University and
only two of them were accepted.
Anyhow, it makes good reading.
(One of those football de-empha-
sizing campaigns out at Ann Arbor
makes men of Michigan despair of
Wolverine teams for a long, long
("It may be for years and it may
be forever," a Michigan grad who is
a member of the school football
alumni association told me not long
ago, under existing conditions.
("This year, we had 21 captains of
Michigan high school teams enroll as
freshmen at the university," he said.
("That doesn't sound so bad."
("It wouldn't have been," he an-
swered mournfully, "but the entrance
board rejected 19 of them."
(That indicates Michigan has en-
tered the phase of football de-em-
phasis that makes the profs lean
over backward to suspect that a
broadshouldered young man has more
brawn than brains. That makes the
famed victory march of the Wolver-
ines seem somewhat ironic with its
closing line of "Hail, hail to Michi-
gan, the champions of the West."
Maybe the word "champion" even-
tually will be altered to doormats).
And he goes on to tell of the fall of
the Wolverines during the past three

Football Material.. .
WHILE we are on the subject of
Michigan's entrance require-
ments, it might be well to take no-
tice of some facts Mill Marsh of the
Ann Arbor Daily News brought to
light yesterday. Mill says:
"Michigan alumni can't under-
stand why Michigan doesn't have
more abundant football material ...
Here is one reason . . . Last year
Coach Harry Kipke lined up 13 boys
considered to be the best in Detroit
. Only two of them were able to
satisfy the entrance requirements at
Michigan . . . He lined up 10 of the
best boys from Flint ... But only one
got into school here and this boy had

One reason why Northwestern
has been able to go as far as it has
this season is because of its ability
to keep opponents from: gaining
through the line, and one reason
why opponents have been stopped
on line plunges is husky Park
Wray, who is playing his third year
on the Purple team as a tackle.

When the final whistle shrills the
end of the Wildcat-Wolverine fracas
this Saturday, six Michigan men
will have donned the moleskins for
their final collegiate effort on Sta-
dium turf. Three regulars and three
reserves constitute the senior corps
that bids local fans adieu in this Ann
Arbor finale.
Chief among them, of course, is
Capt. Matt Patanelli, who has been
both beacon and bulwark in three
years of mediocre Michigan football.
Pat has treated the Stadium clientele
to a brilliant brand of end play. He
has been All-American timber
throughout his career, and only the
failure of his team to win has kept
him from recognition he justly de-
This season, despite the burden of
a leg injury, he has virtually forced

this season. Eastern writers cited
him for his performance in the Penn
Has Weak Ankle
Pat goes into the Northwestern
game with an ankle still weak from
strain, but you can bet cold cash
on it-he'll bow out before the home
folks playing aggressive, teeth-rat-
tling football. That's the only kind
the big boy knows how to play. In-
cidentally, Capt. Pat will likely own
eight sweaters bedecked with a
maize monogram before he leaves
Michigan. Besides three football let-

and 12 from Toledo, none were per-

That gives some idea of why so many
good football players in this state are

And some more. Bill Reed, my pre-
decessor and at present doubling at
Law School and the Detroit Free
Press sports beat, was just in the of-
fice and added that Wilfred Smith
of the Chicago Tribune is in town to
interview the University Registrar on
this entrance requirements business.
People are wondering.

ters, he already has two in basketball
and one in baseball. He'll probably
add one apiece in both latter sports.
Cedric Sweet, fullback mainstay,
and Jesse Garber, dependable left
guard, complete the regular trio that
sings a swan song Saturday. Sweet
exemplifies what results grit and
determination will produce. Lacking
speed and being inept in other phases
of the game, Cedric increased his
speed by sprinting during summer
months, and taught himself to be
quite a proficient booter.
Garber Comes Through
Garber is another of last year's
stalwarts who was scheduled for side-
line duty this fall.. But before the
season was a week old, the sturdy
Jesse was in the first front line.
The three reserves are Chester
Stabovitz, end, Frank Bissell and
Ernie Pederson guards. Stabby was
used in the Wisconsin game last year
at a halfback post, and acquitted
himself creditably in the brief per-
formance, but his main forte is play-
ing end. He has seen service this
season as a flanker, proving himself
adept at receiving passes.
Bissell, who has earned two letters
as a Varsity guard, was incapacitated
early in the season with a broken
jawbone. But the determined little
fellow wouldn't quit, going through
daily practices without asking any
quarters. On the strength of his ef-
forts in practice this week, he may
see action for the first time this sea-
son against the Wildcats today.
Pederson, also a letter-winner last
year, has kept the family name prom-
inent in Michigan football. His fath-
er was a former Wolverine guard.
