Board Takes Early Action
To Remove Speculation
On Kipke'sStatus
Harry G. Kipke will continue as
Michigan's head football coach, the
Board in Control of Physical Educa-
tion announced late yesterday.
Definitely spiking all rumors to the
contrary, Prof. Ralph W. Aigler,
chairman of the Board, said that
Kipke's contract has been renewed
for one year, the period for which
all University coaches are hired.
However, one change will be made
in the personnel of the coaching staff
in that a new man will be hired to
fill the position of head line coach.
As is the practice in making additions
to the staff, this man will be selected
by Coach Kipke with the approval of
Director of Athletics Fielding H.
Action Taken Early
Franklin C. Cappon, line coach for
the past two seasons, will become as-
sistant line coach, but will continue
in his capacity as assistant athletic
director and head basketball coach.
Kipke stated yesterday that at pres-
ent he has no idea of who will be
selected to fill the position. He will
immediately start seeking a capable
man for the job
It has not been the policy of the
Board to take actidn or make an-
nouncements as to staff personnel for
the succeeding year until spring, but
desiring to set at rest the speculation
that has been current for several
weeks in regard to the Michigan
coaches the Board decided to act yes-
Junior Squad Planned
Upon the recommendation of
Coach Kipke, with the approval of
Director Yost, the Varsity staff of
coaches will be as follows: Line Coach

Coach-Franklin C, Cappon; End
Coach-Bennie Oosterbaan; Back-
field Coach-Walter Weber.
It was also announced that a
Junior Varsity squad will be organ-
ized with Coach Ray Courtright in
charge and Coach Clifford Keen as
assistant. It is hoped that a limited
schedule of games for this squad may
be airanged. The last time such a
squad was formed was in 1931, and
that, season it played seven games
with such teams as Western State
Teachers College and "B" teams of
other Big Ten schools.
Training Staff Approved
Kipke has approved the training
staff, which is headed by Ray Rob-
erts, and it will be continued in its
present form. The freshman foot-
ball squad will be in charge of Coach
Ray Fisher with Coach William Borg-
mann and others working as assist-
