About This .,.

FRED OLDS, stocky East Lansing
junior with the 'features of a
Greek Adonis, should be a starter at
guard on next fall's Varsity eleven
. . . Injuries have handicapped Olds
for the past two seasons . . Sopho-
more Archie Kodros is seeing a lot
of action at the guard post opposite
Olds in spring practice drills ... Leo
Beebe, sophomore catcher, may be
used at first base this spring if Capt.
Kimmy Williams is strong enough to
perform behind the plate regularly
. All this if Danny Smick and Bill
Lane, present custodians of the in-
itial sack for the Varsity,. fail to
hit . .. Lane is the smoothest fielder
among the first-base candidates, but
has been notoriously weak at the
plate up to this season ... Coach Ray
Fisher sent his outfielders out to
shag flies yesterday . . . Matt Pat-
anelli, who will probably hold down
one of the berths in the outer gar-
den, is called by Fisher the most im-
proved player on the squad this year

Shelton folded over the ropes in al
sitting position and fell -through just
as the referee counted him out.
The bout went 50 seconds includ-
ing the count. Seigel slapped Shelton1
to the floor just 40 seconds after the
gong and had him dazed in 30. Seigel
outweighed his Flint opponent by 20
pounds, Seigel tipping 210 pounds
and Shelton 190.

Machine Takes Beating
The blocking machine which is a
padded framework attached to a
sled takes quite a beating. It is
hit With varying hardness on an aver-
age of three times a minute for morer
than a half hour every day. Some,
of the huskier linemen succeed in
almost knocking the machine over,;
so powerful is the drive that they
put into their blocking.
Although the squad is put through
a long strimmage every day, drills=
in fundamentals still occupy much of '
the time spent on the gridiron.
Coaches Harry Kipke and 'Hunk'
Anderson spend a substantial part,
of every afternoon instructing their
charges in the technique of proper

Beef Must Budge
As usual with Michigan teams
there is a lot of weight on the team
this year especially among the line-
men. But both 'Kip' and 'Hunk' re-
alize that all of this "beef" must
be made to move quickly. Large
groups of lumbering, heavily padded
players trotting around the field at-
test to the fact that Michigan must
have speed on the gridiron as well
as weight.
It is in the scrimmages that the
hard work shows results. The team
displays a lot of fight and determina-
tion. Enough plays have been issued
to date so that the attack, is quite
varied. Line-bucks, off-tackle slants,
end runs, spinners and even laterals
are included in the pre-season reper-
tory of the gridders.
Anyone aspiring to be a member
of the Varsity next fall will have to
show plenty of stuff because competi-
tion is very stiff this year down Ferry
Field way.
