Battered Wolverine Machine Girds For Buckeye Tilt

Another Shipment of I


Injuries Will
Keep Smithers
Out Of Action
Knee Injury Keeps Smick
Out Of Uniform; First
String Takes Rest
A badly batte d squad of Wol-
verine gridders, till jubilant over
the great fight that they put up
against Northwestern, ran through a
light drill yesterday in preparation
for Saturday'srgame with Ohio State.
The chief worry confronting Coach
Kipke and his confident band of
players today is the condition of
Johnny Smithers and Danny Smick.
Smithers is in the hospital with a
leg injury, and according to the team
physician, Dr. George Hammond, it
is doubtful whether Johnny will be
able to play against Coach Francis
Schmidt's Scarlet Scourge Saturday.
It was while performing his duties
as right halfback in the Northwes-
tern game that Johnny suffered his
injury. To Smithers falls the block-
ing and passing duties and the giant
Purple forwards, balked in their ef-
forts to open up big holes in Mich-
igan's line on the offense, swarmed
all over Johnny every time that he
dropped back to pass.
Ed Phillips and Bob Campbell are
being groomed for the right halfback
position in the event that Smithers
is unable to play. Stark Ritchie as-
sured himself of the left halfback job
through his brilliant running in last
week's game and Bob Cooper will be
ready to step into Starks shoes
whenever Coach Kipke says the word.
The rest of the Varsity backfield is
the, same as that which started
against Coach Lynn Waldorf's grid-
ders, wtih Bill Barclay calling the
signals andhCed Sweet backing up
the line in the fullback position.
Danny Smick can also attest to
the toughness of the Northwestern
gridders, since his body is a mass of
bruises and he is unable .to practice
because of an injury similar to
Smithers.' Danny is expected to be
able to start in his right end post
against Ohio State however.
Coach Harry Kipke gave his regul-
ars a rest as he taught some new
plays to his second string eleven.
The second team had John Jordan
at center, Ralph Heikkinen and
"Dutch" VandeWater in the guard
posts, "Abe" Lincoln and Mel Kram-
er as tackles, Art-Valpey and Elmer
Gedeon at ends and Ed Phillips,
Wally Hook, Louis Levine and Ed.
Stanton in the backfield.
While the first and second string
elevens were running through signal
drill, Coach Cappon took the third
and fourth strings under his tutelage
and gave them a long offensive
scrimmage against the freshman.
Doug Farmer, Alex Loiko, Ken Frost
and Norm Purucker started in the
backfield and seemed to click with
Purucker getting off for several long
Cross Country Title
To Spartan Harriers
NEW YORK, Nov. 16.-()-Mich-

(Daily Sports Editor)
Three days before the Illinois game
a great Michigan gridder of the early
twenties who has been following the
Wolverines closely over a period of
years told me that Joe Rinaldi was
the weakest defensive center to play
for the Varsity in the last 25 years
-that is, up to the Columbia game
when Joe blossomed out.
Joe did blossom out in the Co-
lumbia game, but he arrived to stay
last Saturday. And I think my ear-
lier confidant will agree. The play
of the Elkhart junior against North-
western was in my mind enough evi-
dence that he is on the way toward
becoming another great center of the
line that began with "Germany"
Schultz and hasincluded Jack Blott,
"Doc" Morrison and Chuck Bernard
among others.
Rinaldi. needs polish, naturally, but
with one more year of play remain-
ing, I honestly think that he will go
a long way toward disproving the
skeptics who have been saying that
great Michigan centers have become
a thing of the past since Blott left
his assistant's job here to go to Wes-
Sports writers have been mention-
ing the fact that Don Heap, North-
westerns great ball carrier, threat-
ened to get loose several times but
failed to get by the secondary. You
can give Rinaldi a great deal of the
credit for stopping Heap with his
play behind the line.. But, too, don't
forget Cedric Sweet. He also had
much to do with this business of
keepig the Wildcat back beforesthey
broke into dangerous territory.
And when you are considering Rin-
aldi, remember the punts he has
downed this season-two of them on
the opponent's one-yard line. That
is quite some feat for a center.
Joe makes mistakes, of course, but
I think he has the makings. Watch
him next Saturday at Columbus.

Fred DeLano posted his prognosti-
cating average for the week yester-
day. His selections for last Saturday
resulted in 25 winners and seven los-
ers for an average of .781. His most
recent efforts boost his percentage
for the year by .008. Fred now has a
total of 100 winners and 32 losers
for .758.

Phys Eds Try For First Grid
Win Over Frosh Since 1930


Puck Pushers Are Waiting As
Coliseum Is Being Rejuvenated

Down at 725 South Division they're
pretty busy this week, ripping boards
off the windows, painting, and
squirting water around. Vic Heyliger
has exchanged the lost look in his
eyes for a vicious gleam as he pushes
his bicycle to Ypsi and back harder
than ever. Eddie Lowrey has bustled
over from Walkerville to take charge.
Herm's geeting his freezing engines
warmed up and Nate's painting the
ammonia tanks.
a Coliseum Getting Ready
All of which means that the Col-
iseum is getting ready for the hockey
The skating rink will open for
public use Saturday night, but a
squad of eleven men will go on the
ice in the afternoon for the first
practice of the season.
With the exception of Larry David,
last year's team will return intact.
Johnny Fabello at left wing, Heyliger
at center, and Gib James at right
wing will face Chatham, of the On-
tario Hockey Association, in the op-
ener Nov. 28, backed up by Bert
Smith and Bob Simpson. Bert
started off the season with Larry
David last year, and paired with Bob
when David injured his shoulder, but
when Bert became ineligible the sec-
ond semester, Bob Simpson took over
for him, which gives Lowrey two ex-
perienced defense men this year.
In the nets Bud Shalek, last year's
goalie, is back again, but according
to Lowrey, he'll have to improve con-
siderably to keep his job, what with
those Chase twins from Grosse
Pointe, Ed and Bill, back in school
after a year's absence. Lowrey isn't
sure which one, Ed or Bill, is the
goalie, but two years ago, when All-
American Johnny Jewell went to the
hospital with acute appendicitis, it
was Bill who went into the cage and
finished out the season with several

very creditable performances.
A first string squad of 11 or 12
men, depending on whether Dick
Berryman, starting wing two years
ago, made up an incomplete yester-
day, will start practice Saturday.
In addition to Fabello, Heyliger,
James, Smith, Simpson, Shalek, Bill
Chase and Berryman, there is a
second line composed of George
Cooke, Walkerville flash who starred
as a freshman forward last year,
Jack Merrill, Michigan's only re-
serve of the second semester last
year, and Ted Ling, sophomore from
St. Johnsbury, Vt. Bill Wood, soph-
omore goalie, completes the list.
After the opener with Chatham,
Lowrey has three other games lined
up before Christmas vacation. Brant-
ford, another O.H.A. team, will come
here Dec. 5, and either Kitchener,
Port Colborne, or University of Wes-
tern Ontario will play in the Coli-
seum Dec. 8.
McMaster Renews Battle
McMaster University will renew its
battle with the Wolverine pucksters
Dec. 12, which will conclude the
schedule for 1936. In 1937,-which
isn't so far off, there will be the
usual four games with Minnesota,
led by All-American goalie Bud Wil-
kinson, and with Michigan Tech of
Houghton, captained by "Moon'
Mullins. The University of Torontc
will, come here at a date not yet de-
termined, and Michigan will play a
return engagement with the Uni-
versity of Western Ontario in Can-
"All in all," Eddie Lowrey says
"Iit's a good schedule, and since
we're sure of a good goalie this year
it looks like a fine team." That's put-
ting' it mildly, Eddie. We predici
the return of the Big Ten title and
of the mythical state championshi;
to the ice-house gang at 725 South
Division Street.

The annual football battle between
the Freshmen and Physical Educa-
tion elevens to be played Thursday,
Nov. 19, at Ferry Field will find the
Phys Eds attempting to garner their
first victory since 1930 over the regu-
lar yearling squad.
This five year streak of the regu-
lar Frosh was marred last year when
the two teams fought to a scoreless
ti@ in the cold. Alex Loiko and Norm-
an Purucker starred for the Phys Eds
in the cold. Alex Loiko and Norman
Purucker starred for the Phys Eds
while Lou Levine was the shining
light of the opposing yearling squad.
Dan Smick, John Brennan, Tex
Stanton, Fred Janke, John Jordan,
and Elmer Gideon, all of whom have
seen considerable Varsity service this
year, played on one of the two teams
last year. A score of others are on
this year's reserve squad.
Fold In Last Period
In 1934 the Physical Education
team folded up in the last quarter
yielding three touchdowns in quick
succession to give the Frosh a 25-7
victory. Johnny Smithers, Art Val-
pey, and Art Leadbeater, all Varsity
men this year, were outstanding in
this game. Leadbeater has since
dropped off the squad.
The regular yearlings won in 1933,
7-0, when Joe Ellis tossed a pass to
Matt Patanelli, captain of the 1936
eleven, who lateralled to Amrine for
the only score of the game. Future
Varsity material playing in that
game consisted of Frank Bissell, Bud
Hanshue, Ferris Jennings, Chet Sta-
bovitz and Stan Schumann.
The Freshmen were victorious by
the same score in 1932. Dave Hunn
returning a punt 35 yards for the
only score of the fray. Howard
Triplehorn, MikeSavage, ChelsowTo-
magno, and George Dudness stood
out in this battle.
Margin A Blocked Punt
A blocked punt which rolled out of
the end zone for a two point safety
provided the yearlings with another
win in 1931. Bill Borgman, now or
the coaching staff, Gerald Ford, whc
starred at center in his Varsity days
and Willis Ward, the brilliant Negrc
end, shone in this game.

In the last Phys Ed victory in 1930,
Stan Fay, captain of the undefeated
1933 eleven, passed to Ted Petoskey
for the winning score. Two other
future Varsity captains played in
this game, Tom Austin, captain in
1934, and Bill Renner, last year's
leader. Other future stars who com-
peted were Herm Everhardus and
Chuck Bernard, a future All-Ameri-
This contest provides the two
freshmen squads with their only taste
of competition since inter-freshmen
football was banned some 16 years
ago by Big Ten officials, and the
game Thursday appears to be a nip
and tuck battle throughout with
neither team holding any great ad-
vantage over the other.
