F rosh Teams
To Scrimmage
This Afternoon
This afternoon, armed with but'
!seven plays and very little experience,
some 86 freshman football warriors
will attempt to show reason why they
should be given serious consideration
for future varsity competition.
Coach Ray Fisher plans to start
two teams including many of the men
about whom he has either observed
or heard encouraging things. One
squad which has been running North-
w;estern plays against the Varsity will
pse those formations while the re-
fnainder of the squad will use the
plays they have been given during
the last two days.
They have practiced these forma-
tions but two days and will no doubt
pe a bit ragged but, according to
wisher, the main thing is to find out
who can run, block, and tackle and so
The scrimmage will probably get
under way about 4:30 p.m. since many
of the boys will be unable to make it
any earlier because of a freshman
hygiene lecture.
Yesterday the squad spent its time
practicing the four r'unning plays and
three pass plays in ar attempt to
smooth out the roughness which is
still in evidence.

EAST LANSING, Oct. 7.-(A)-
Thirty-seven Michigan State College
football players were enroute to New
York today to meet Chick Meehan's
Manhattan College Jaspers in a gameI
that is expected to prove whether
State has a really "great" team or
whether its opposition this year has
only made it appear outstanding.
The squad, the largest traveling
group Coach Charley Bachman has
ever named for a football trip, left
aboard special cars shortly after 5
p.m. Thursday. The trip will get:
them to New York at noon and the
squad will leave immediately for
Garden City, LI., where headquar-i
ters will be established until game
time Saturday.
The Spartans went through a light
rill before they departed. It was
established that Allen Diebold, first!
string quarterback, would be unable
to play in the Manhattan game, for
the injured shoulder suffered by the
burly boy from Jackson has kept him
out of uniform for the past two days.
He is on the New York trip, however.
State left their camp feeling that
the game with Manhattan would be
one of the sternest tests of the year.

chatter throughout the workout.
Emphasis yesterday, as in most of
the other workouts during the past
week, was on pass defense. Coaches
Kipke and Anderson spent the major
portion of the time drilling the teams
on breaking up the opponents aerial
attacks before they got started and
keeping the receivers covered.
Lineup Undecided
Stark Ritchie and Fred Trosko
looked especially good on the throw-
ing end of the attach, and Kipke was
undecided as to which one of the
two would be in the starting lineup.
When the Wolverines were not
under the direction of Kipke and An-
derson they rehearsed plays and de-
fense against the Northwestern at-
tack under assistant line coach
Franklin Cappon.
Kipke was not yet fully decided as
to who would be in the lineup at the
kickoff tomorrow but indicated that a
tentative starting squad would prob-
ably include Stanton, Farmer, Renda,
and either Ritchie or Trosko in the
backfield, Rinaldi or Kodros at the
pivot post, Brennan and Heikkenen
