Yearlings Meet IniAnual Grid Battle Today..

Ilflllllm ifll~ lllllfllllllfllillll iiftlll

Phys Eds Hope
To Stop Frosh
Freshmen Line Superior;
Opponents Have More
Power In Backfield
With one squad having a definite
advantage in line strength and the
other boasting of a superior backfield,
the Physical Education 'and Fresh-
man elevens will battle it out today
in their annual meeting at Ferry
Field. The time of game is 4 p.m.
The Phys. Es will depend n their
powerful backfield to give them their
first victory since 1930 over their fel-
low yearlingssquad. The Frosh, on
the other hand, expect a strong for-
ward wall to stop their opponents
and thus give them both an offensive
and defensive advantage.
Both squads went through lights
signal drills yesterday in preparation
for the game, which will culminate
their gridiron activities this fall. In
the long run neither team has much
of an advantage over the other, and
coaches were unanimous in forecast-
ing a close battle.
The backfield which the Phys. Eds.
hope will give them the necessary
margin of victory consists of Charles
Prochaska at quarter, Fred Trosko
and Milo Sukup halfbacks, and Don
Page at full. All of these men are
good runners and are proficient in
other departments of the game as
Trosko at halfback will handle the
passing and punting duties for the
Phys Ed squad while he is in the
game besides doing a good share of
the running. Prochaska and Sukup
can both run well, but their main
job tomorrow will be blocking. Page
will do the line plunging and take
over the kicking duties when Trosko
is out of the game.
The Freshmen are depending on
little Hercules Renda's broken field
running ability. This diminutive back
is the most dangerous in the open
field, and should he break loose, the
Phys Eds will find him a hard man
to stop. Don Hendrix, a quarter, is a
fine blocker and passer, and Harry
Mulholland, at full, is an excellent
punter. August Fabyan, who rounds
out the yearling backfield, will be at
the blocking post.
The Phys Eds will wear yellow jer-
seys in the game.

The Physical Education freshmen
and the regular frosh squad meet in
their annual battle today, and tra-
dition says that it will be any man's
ball game. Every season the two
squads clash, and while the Phys Eds
haven't won since Ted Petoskey and
the boys played in 1930, a seething
battle has resulted each year.
Wally Weber is coaching both
squads this year (the Phys Eds
in the morning and the regular
freshmen squad in the after-
noon), and while it wouldn't be
diplomatic for him to predict the
outcome, he will tell you that
"the regular freshmen have the
best line and the Phys Eds the
best backfield."
In fact Wally is so worked up over
his quartet of Physical Ed backs that
he says Michigan could start these
four against Ohio State Saturday
and the youngsters would turn in as
good a showing as Coach Kipke's
Varsity ball carriers.
Each squad has its own set of sig-
nals and plays, of course. The reg-
ular freshmen outnumber the Physi-
cal Eds tremendously usually, but the
latter have most of the outstanding
. Bay City fans probably will
be watching today's game with
more than a passing interest.
The northern city hasn't been
represented on the Varsity since
Bill Hewitt and Louie Westover
cavorted in the Stadium, but
three of the yearlings in action
today claim it as their home,
and their progress is bound to be
followed carefully.
On the regular frosh starting elev-
en from Bay City will be Tom Hutton
at center and Harry Mulholland at
fullback, while the Physical Eds will
have Ernie Zielinski from the same
town at left end.
Glancing Ahead
j UST glancing at the 1937 schedule'
J for Michigan's football team I
see that the Wolverines are due for
three tough Saturdays in a row right
at the beginning of the year. Mich-
igan State opens the season on Oct.
2, and is followed on successive week-
ends by Northwestern and Minne-
sota. Ouch!
Iowa and Chicago are new op-
ponents on next year's schedule,
replacing Columbia and Indiana.
The Chicago game will be played
in Ann Arbor.
There is only one change in 1938
over the 1937 schedule, Yale replac-
ing Iowa. In the course of the 1938
season the Varsity will be forced to
meet Minnesota one week and Yale
the next-both away from home.
Yale comes here in 1939.

ing the Varsity's new plays and a
defense for Ohio State's razzle-dazzle
offense. Smick, in uniform for the
first time this week, also contented
himself with watching the forma-
Personal Undecided
Coach Kipke said that he had not
decided as yet on the personnel of
the squad that he will take to Co-
lumbus. The gridders will entrain
at 8:15 p.m. tonight for Springfield,
O., and expect to remain in Spring-
field until Saturday morning, when;
they will go on to Columbus.
Yesterday's drill laid special stressf
on a passing offense with Stark Rit-
chie, Wally Hook, Alex Loiko and Bob
Campbell doing the throwing. The
Varsity lined up with Joe Rinaldi
at center, George Marzonie and Jesse
Garber at the guard posts, "Abe" Lin-
coln and Don Paquette in at tackles,
Art Valpey and Elmer Gedeon as the
ends, and Ritchie, Bill Barclay, Ced
Sweet and Ed Phillips in the back-
Don Paquette, who along with Lin-
coln, has made a rapid rise from
fourth string to first string tackle,
will probably relinquish the starting
left tackle post to Siegel, but is al-
most certain to fee service against
Ohio State. The second backfield
consisted of Louis Levine, Ed Stan-
ton, Bob Campbell and Alex Loiko.
Emery A Powerhouse
A fourth string team that had
Coach Harvey Emery and a fresh-l
man football manager in the line ran
some Ohio plays against the Varsity.
Emery was a powerhouse in the line
and on one occasion effectively kept
Art Valpey out of the play by sitting
on his leg.
Louis Levine and Valpey engaged
in a 50-yard dash for the benefit of
Trainer Ray Roberts after practice
and Levine won by a step and a half
although Starter Bill Reed claims
that Louis beat the gun. Campbell
and Sweet closed the session with
some very fine punting to Stark Rit-
chie and Wally Hook.

Starting a week from next Satur-
day and running through until the
thirteenth of March, there will be
fourteen games here in the Univer-
Aity Coliseum. The other side of the
picture shows the Wolverines playingl
five games away from their own
chilled emporium.j
The curtain raiser here on Nov. 28
brings the Chatham A.C., perennial
Michigan rivals, and a club that
packs a lot of wallop. In recent years
Chatham .has run more to weight
than speed in the matter of players,
and they make a very interesting eve-
ning for Coach Eddie Lowery's rela-
tively lighter but faster squad.
Another highlight of the schedule
is the tentatively arranged date of
March 5, the game here with the
University of Toronto sextet. This
game has been 'on tap' for several
years, and while negotiations have
not been definitely concluded as yet,
it is understood that the above con-
clusion is but a matter of formality.
A newcomer to the Michigan sched-
ule, the Blue and White, coached
by the veteran 'Ace' Bailey, will bring
a very capable outfit.
Still another feature in connection
with the schedule that is worthy
of note is that Michigan draws the
first meeting with Minnesota here.

Is Nearing Reality
NEW YORK,, Nov. 18.-(A)-An
Atlantic City no-decision fight be-
tween J. Braddock and Joe Louis
seemed a step nearer reality tonight.
The New York State Athletic
Commission, which had been expect-
ed to oppose the fight, indicated it
would adopt a neutral stand at its
meeting today.
The commission intimated that if
Braddock will sign articles to fight
Max Schmeling next June and post a
$5,000 binder, what he does outside
of New York is his own affair.
