Phillips Takes
Injured Back's
Post Saturday

Blocking Prowess
Sophomore Nod;
Ritchie Pass Well


With Johnny Smithers pronounced
definitely out of Saturday's game,
yesterday's practice session devoted
its attention to the selection of a
capable substitute for the star right
halfback. Bob Campbell worked out
with the first team backfield in place
of Smithers and spent most of the
afternoon throwing laterals and for-
ward passes. Campbell does not
throw his passes with the finesse
that Johnny has shown and had sev-
eral of them intercepted.
Despite the fact that Campbell
was with the first team today, Coach
Harry Kipke intimated that he in-
tended to start Ed Phillips against
Ohio State and had him working out'
with the second team backs. Phillips
is reputed to be the best of the block-
ing backs after Smithers and since
Stark Ritchie, Wally Hook and Alex
Loiko are all ready to step into John-
ny's passing duties, Ed seems the log-
ical choice for the right halfback-
the blocking back position.
Learn New Plays
While the Varsity with till Bar-
clay, Ced Sweet, Bob Cooper and
Campbell ran through passing drill,
the second stringers learned some
new plays, particular interest being
attached to the running and passing
of Ritchie and Hook.
Stark and Wally were both getting
off long, accurate spirals and every-
body on the second team was catch-
ing them. Elmer Gedeon and Art
Valpey at the flanks looked espe-
cially good on the receiving end of
the passes. Gedeon can cover ground
faster than any other man on the
squad and was forced to slow down
and wait for the passes many times.
Paquette Moves Up
Don Paquette, who has moved up
in the tackle rankings to a second
string position, and Ed Greenwald in
the tackle positions, George Mar-.
zonie and "Dutch" VandeWater at
guards, John Jordan as the center,
and Ritchie, Louis Levine, Ed Stan-
ton and Phillips made up the second
team. Doug Farmer and Wally Hook
alternated with Levine and Ritchie.
Bob Campbell and Ced Sweet
closed the session with someN very
good punting-a good many of the
kicks going between 50 and 60 yards.
Ritchie and Chuck Gray were on the
receiving end of the punts.

'Color' Of Last Year's Quintet
Increased Gate Receipts Here

Since 1933, or thereabouts, there
has been a feeling around the Mich-
igan campus that Michigan basket-
ball existed principally because the
school was expected to have a bas-
ketball team and for practically no
other reason.
There was no one reason for this
attitude although the major cause
was undoubtedly the very poor ma-
terial that made up the Varsity in
1933, '34 and '35. The absence of
color also was responsible for the
drop in enthusiasm. Everything
overshadowed basketball including
library dates.
There isn't much use in elaborat-
ing on the situation. Suffice it to
say that while the sport was gaining
such an amazing popularity through-
out the country it was dropping off to
an afterthought around Ann Arbor.
Had Color
With the 1935-36 season the situ-
ation changed. The material changed
for the better. Every man on the
Varsity possessed real basketball skill
and plenty of color to boot. John
"Jake" Townsend, Earl "Camel"
Townsend "Long" John Gee, little
George Rudness, and Chelso Tamag-
no, the human iceberg, gave the
Michigan five plenty of color and
even a nickname, "the Goliaths."
Cappy Cappon's aoility as a coach
was given a chance and proved itself;
with every game interest grew; every
game was truly worth seeing and
gradually crowds grew until 9,500
fans crowded into Yost Field House
on March 6 to see the Purdue fracas.
Needless to say they got their mon-
ey's worth.
But really that enthusiasm is still
in its youth. No matter how the
victory and loss columns shapes up

at the end of the coming season
Michigan really will have a basket-
ball team this year. The boys know
basketball, Johnny Gee is out of the
woods; the passing is going to be
something to write home about; the
boys know how to bring the ball
down the floor; they can stall, they
can really play basketball.
Gee Looks Good
Right now Gee looks better than
at any time in his college career.
That of course was to be expected for
he has been learning and improv-
ing all the time. After each prac-
tice it seems more certain that he
will repeat Ed Garner's feat of 1933,

the fact that he had never played
