tern has men who can execute all the
niceties of offense with finesse and
dispatch. They prefer running to
passing and no objections will be
forthcoming from the Wolverines,
who revealed several inadequacies in
their aerial defense against Michi-
gan State.
Michigan may find solace in the
fact that Northwestern's line is re-
ported to be the Achilles heel in its
grid machine. Bob Voigts, burly
tackle, and Erwin Wegner, the cen-
ter who played here last year, form
the nucleus of the Wildcat forward
wall. Of course, Fred Vanzo. a de-
fensive bulwark will be behind the
line, and that may nullify a lot of
Absence of Fred Olds at guard is
expected to work a hardship in the
Wolverine line, although Jack Bren-
nan, a letterman, has filled the breach
satisfactorily this week. Dan Smick
may get the call at left end in lieu of
Art Valpey whose groin injury and
shock from State battering may keep
him from playing.
Trosko To Start
Kipke pursued his policy of wait-
ing until game time before designat-
ing his tailback. Although Fred
Trosko will probably get the call, both
he and Stark Ritchie showed fire in
this afternoon's workout.
Michigan partisans were anxious to
see Hercules Renda, midget star of
last week's tussle whose colorful ex-
ploits preceded him here. Herc
commands attention and will repre-
sent the so-called "Michigan spirit"
as long as he remains erect. New
offensive formations have further
utilized his running abiity.
Stanton At Full
From apparent indications, Fred
Janke, a great tackle recently turned
fullback, will again be inactive ue to
a knee bruise and a painful boil on
his arm. Tex Stanton will start at
full, with Doug Farmer, who shrewd-
ly capitalized every opportunity last
Saturday, back at quarter.
Although Archie Kodros is slated to
start tomorrow he and Capt. Joe
Rinaldi alternated at the pivot post in
the brisk drill. Don Siegel and Joe
Savilla are certain starters at tackle,
with Ralph Heikknen a cinch at right
Freshman Drill
Reveals Wealth
Of Strong Backs
Yearling Backfield Fours
Click As Red Teams Take
Blues In Scrimmage
The first freshman football scrim-
mage of the year which was held yes-
terday afternoon at Ferry Field re-
vealed one important fact-there will
be a lot of first class sophomore
backs on next year's varsity squad.
With their backfields clicking in
exceptional style considering the
little practice they have had to-

gether, the two red-shirted teams
rode over the three blue teams which
opposed them one after the other.
The first backfield to show power
was composed of Dick Bennett at
quarter, Harry Kohl and Chuck Jones
at the halves, and Charles Ross at
fullback. With Jones, an All-State
man from Kentucky, doing the brunt
of the work both running and pass-
ing, the first red squad won their
brief scrimmage 6 to 0, scoring on a
20-yard pass from Jones to Bennett.
The next red team immediately
took charge of the situation with a
powerhouse backfield made up of
Meyer at quarter, Tom Harmon, All-
Stater from Indiana at right half,
Paul Kromer, All-State Ohio man at
left half and his former teammate,
Arch Mahaffey at fullback.
With Harmon and Kromer ripping
off long gains, their squad scored
three touchdowns in short order. Both
are fast and shifty and should make
strong bids for regular positions next
year. Dave Strong, Illinois transfer,
also showed his wares at quarter-
back for this red team later. Strong,
incidentally, was doing some fine
punting in practice before the scrim-
mage began.
For the blues, Les Persky's passing
was a standout.

"Light Conditioning" is very simple. It means providing the right
amount and the right kind of lighting for SEEING, COMFORT and
BEAUTY .. . wherever eyes are used in work or play. Light Con-
ditioning is scientific-there is no guesswork about it. But it is also
flexible: If you wish, you may Light Condition a single table, a chair,
a room. Or you may Light Condition your entire house.
The first step is to call in a Lighting Adviser-one of our Home Light-
ing Advisers will be glad to help you-to measure your present light-
ing and to advise you as to the types of lamps needed. "Light Condi-
tioning" is not expensive: Yery often, it is just a matter of rearrang-
ing reflector lamps and lighting fixtures.
Light Conditioning brings new beauty to your home ... color and
warmth to your furnishings ... soft, diffused light to your rooms. But
it also helps to provide restful, easy seeing, and helps to guard against
eyestrain and fatigue caused by poor lighting conditions.
Why not Light Condition your home NOW? You can start with a
single room if you like. But the important thing is to make a start.
Telephone our Home Lighting Division for a survey of your home
lighting. There is no charge for this service, and no obligation.
