Gopher Game
Leaves Squad
Coaches Point Out Errors
In Team's Play Through
Use Of Movies
The Varsity gridders, kept inside
by heavy rain and a soggy turf, went
through a light workout yesterday
afternoon in Yost Field House.
With but few exceptions, every
member of the squad who saw action
Saturday was nursing bruises of one
kind or another. Trainer Ray Rob-
erts had his hands full administering
first aid to the battered players.
The squad got its first look at
Iowa plays yesterday as Coach
Franklin Cappon directed the third
string eleven through the Hawkeye
offensive set-up. Only about half of
the first string squad was available
for action, however, and the drill
was merely an instructive one.
Avoid Contact Work
There was no hard coptact work
during the session because of the
battered condition of the players. Of
the first stringers, Archie Kodros,
Don Siegel, Doug Farmer, Tex Stan-
ton and Elmer Gedeon spent little
time in the working lineups. Danny
Smick and Wally Hook were so
shaken up that they did not report
in uniform although they watched
from the sidelines.
Aside from the running of the
Iowa plays, the practice session was
made up of light pass offense and de-
fense drills and the execution of
running plays which featured no hard
blocking or tackling.
Olds Still Out
Fred Olds, who has been confined
to the hospital most of the time
since the State game with an in-
jured knee watched practice from the
sidelines but was not in uniform.
His knee has recovered sufficiently to
allow him to return to the lineup
but an abcess below the spine which
he suffered from being on his back
so long is proving bothersome to him.
He is expected to return to the line-
up in his guard position soon, how-
In an evening session last night
the squad was shown the moving
pictures of the Minnesota game and
the individual faults of the players
were pointed out by the coaches.
Squad Shows "Pepper"
Outside of the night session, how-
ever, the stunning defeat at the
hands of Minnesota was relegated to
the background as the squad con-
centrated on the Hawkeye game.
The optimistic note of the after-
.oon's workout was the amount of
"pepper" which was shown by every-
one on the squad. Despite the bruised
condition of the players the pep was
of the variety that.has not been seen
this year even before the State game.
Stiffer workouts will be the order
for the remainder of the week, even
in the event of more bad weather.
All of the injuries from Saturday
were of the bruise variety and the en-
tire squad should be ready to go in
,the sessions remaining before the
Iowa game Saturday.

Gloomy Monday...
DIARY OF AN eavesdropper: Hat
over eyes-in keeping with the
pervasive gloom-we sneaked into the
Athletic Administration building with
a query or two tickling the cerebrum.
But rain, lending its mournful tattoo
to the customarily Blue Monday
among the coaches, and the general
lugubriousness discouraged rash im-
pertinences. Upstairs, movies of the
Minnesota-Michigan fi z z 1 e (for
Mich) unreeled, adding nothing to the
general happiness. Downstairs, Ath-
letic Director Fielding H. Yost com-
plained of the negligence of Satur-
day's weather report, which failed to
record "the cyclone and hurricane"
that hit town. Conjured up in the
old gent's tiring eyes were misty pic-
tures of past Gopher-Wolverine
games, when Michigan had weapons
with which to combat its foes and
when no Michigan man left the game
ashamed to admit his alma mater was
part of the afternoon's activity.
It's hard to offer even a second
guess on Saturday's scheduled
"battle" when case-hardened De-
troit writers condone everyone for
Michigan's lambasting. One
writes that Michigan might have
kept the score down had it re-
fused to gamble. Another sug-
gests the Wolverines might have
gone into a shell after theiri
Revise Rulings
In Independent
I - M Program
A committee of the managers of
the seven competing teams in the]
all-year competition in the Indepen-
dent Intramural League met at the
Intramural Building recently and
made additions to the rules under
which they will play.
The teams were placed in two'
leagues for the football schedule
which will start on Thursday of this
week. In League I are Rumsey House,
Hiawatha, Forestry Club, and Allen
House. In League II are the Wol-
verines, Fletcher Hall, and Whirl-
winds. It is hoped that another
team will sign up- for the all-year
competition, which is being sponsored
by the Independent Men's Organiza-
tion in conjunction with the Intra-
mural Department, so that there will
be two leagues of four teams each.
Of the rule additions, the most im-
portant were that all game ties would
be decided by an extra five minute
period and that all ties in league
standings would be played off at the
beginning of the following week.
It was hoped that the winners of
the Independent league would play
the victors in the fraternity play in
each sport. The prospect of a cam-
pus "world series" was termed a
"natural ."

touchdown and spared them-
selves a top-heavy defeat. Per-
haps in our callowness we fail to
see this; to gamble one must of-
fer reasonable stakes, to go into
a shell one must offer a reason-
ably stubborn defense. We saw
neither, but then we're not exjerts
and proably place too much
stock in what our eyes see. The
metropolitan analyst said the
"U. of M. gambled, placed hopes
in attack"; we can't resist the ob-
vious retort, What attack?" ...
Minesota caught more of MICHI-
GAN passes than Michigan did, and
each set off a touchdown fuse. Michi-
gan's line opened like the Red Sea
and Moses (reincarnated in Chris-,
tianson, Buhler, Uram, Gmitro, Van
Every, etc.) paraded through. That's
as much as we know ...
Ray Is Hereabouts ...
IN THE OCT. 3 issue of the New
York Times, John Kieran, erudite
sports columnist, recalls the old New
York Highlanders, fore-runners of
the present-day Yankees. In his
recollections he extracts some of the
color of Kid Elberfeld (" . . . no boy
dared lay a hand on him."), Roxy
Roach ("He stopped a lot with his
chest.") Hal Chase (" . . . all steel
springs") and others. One of them
was Ray Fisher, "the Vermont school-
I master. He was a pitcher. Not bad,
either. What everbecame of Ray?"
Kieran was quick to learn what be-
came of Ray.
Into his office a deluge of let-
ters poured-from all over the
East, advising of Fisher's where-
abouts. Kieran immediately sent
Ray a letter in which he mar-
velled at the friends he had
throughout the country. Had
Kieran been up-on his collegiate
baseball he'd have known about
Ray. Or he might have asked
Pete Appleton or Wallie Roettger,
or any Conference diamond
coach. They are acutely aware
of Ray's whereabouts.
MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 18.- (P) -
Coach Bernie Bierman led off with
a chalk talk today the 36 players who
trounced Michigan 39 to 6 Saturday.
The Gopher head coach said, however,
the. squad would return to serious
practice tomorrow, even though the
Notre Dame game is two weeks away.
Minnesota has an open date next
The squad also viewed moving pic-
tures of last Saturday's game.
Indications were Harold Van Every
would get the regular left half assign-
ment to replace Andy Uram, lost for
the season with a broken left wrist
suffered in the Wolverine contest.
IOWA CITY, Oct. 18.-(P)-With
most of the regulars excused from
practice, the University of Iowa fresh-
man football team plastered a 12 to
7 defeat on the Varsity reserves in a
scrimmage game todpy.
COLUMBUS, Oct. 18.-(IP)-Ohio
State University gridmen turned
mudders today as they practiced for
their clash with Northwestern here
Saturday. Rested from their long
California trip, regulars and reserves
snapped through pass drills and
dummy scrimmages in a heavy rain.
CHAMPAIGN, Oct. 18.-G'P)-With
an open date Saturday, Illinois first
and second Varsity squads were ex-
cused from work today as the third

and fourth elevens ploughed through
mud in a short drill.
CHICAGO, Oct. 18.--(P) -The
University of Chicago football team,
which has an open date Saturday, was
excused from practice today. Coach
Clark Shaughnessy said he was satis-
fied with the performance of the
Maroons against Princeton and that
the team would be stronger against
Ohio State Oct. 30.
