BULLETIN
It was rumored last night that
James H. Lincoln, '38, Varsity
tackle from Harbor Beach.,
Mich., has dropped off the squad
due to the press of school work
and outside activities, which in-
clude a job as a part-time dairy
inspector. Contacted last night,
Lincoln denied the rumor, al-
though he admitted being unable
to practice regularly because of
these extra duties. He also stated
that should he quit, it would be
because of these reasons.
Passing and pass defense along
with hard blocking and tackling fea-
tured yesterday afternoon's practice
session for Coach Harry Kipke's Wol-
verine gridders.
Monday's light workout, due largely
to the absence of several members of
the squad because of injuries, was for-
gotten as strenuous scrimmages were
held in the Yost Field House. Shortly
after the cessation of the rain the
squads moved outdoors.
Barclay Sees Actin
Blocking and tackling and work-
outs in more fundamental parts of
the game will be taken up later in the
week, said Coach Kipke.
The aerial phase of the game, re-
sponsible directly or indirectly forall
of Michigan defeats this year, again
came in for concentrated attention.
With Freddie Trosko doing most of
the throwing and Nicholson Gedeon
and Valpey receiving, several pass
plays were ttied.
On defense Bill Barclay replaced
Hercules Renda for awhile in the
backfield as an aid to breaking up a
pass attack.
Smick, Hook Report
Danny Smick and Wally Hook who
were absent from Monday's practice
due to injuries sustained against
Minnesota appeared yesterday in uni-
form. However, they took no part in
any of the drills but merely spent the
afternoon exercising lightly and
watching the Varsity plays from the
sidelines.
Coach Franklin Cappon continued
demonstrating Iowa plays to the Var-
sity by means of a freshman team.
Against Wisconsin last week Iowa
opened up with a pass attack in the
latter part of the game that almost
proved effective and with this in mind
the major part of the frosh plays were
aerial attempts. The slight changes
made in the Varsity defense aided
somewhat in stopping the frosh passes
but several went through to comple-
tion. The running plays that were
tried did not function as well.
Jack Brennan, Varsity guard, was
sent to the University Hospital for an
x-ray, but it revealed nothing but a
slight nerve injury of the neck.

ASIDE LINES,

Falstaff ian Farce . .
TN AN OFFICE football pool two
weeks ago, which totalled a meag-
er $1.90, your ASIDELINER finished
last among a group of nondescripts,
including several stragglers on the
editorial staff. The resultant con-
tumely heaped upon us, especially
by a certain Falstaffian roue calling
himself, "The Thin Man," would
have damaged the pride of a less re-
putable prognosticator than us. In a
defense of considerable logic and
bravado, we told the gloating gamb-
lers we were merely building them up
for a bigger stake. So this week they
approached us, gleefully rubbing their
hands, their eyes aglow with a mer-
cenary glint, and solicited two-bits
for the new pool. Once a chump,
they thought always a chump. And
we look the part.
With a six dollar pot, the boys gath-
ered around the teletype machine
Saturday night awaiting the returns.
At the half way mark, half of 'em
had sneaked out of the building,
ashamed to face us after earlier ac-
cusations. When the -final returns
were in, we collected our six bucks,
with only two wrong in 25 games, five
of which were ties. Now comes the
aftermath-the Thin Man crawling
in with his sour grapes.
My dear Dr. L. (Ed. note: He'
probably anticipated a touch):
Last week, it pleased me to send
you a brief comment on your
atrociously bad taste in coming in
last in a small contest of wits (Ed.
note: abominable self-praise!)
involving the selection of the win-
ners of 25 of Saturday's football
games. Now that you have won a
similar contest held this past
Saturday, may I anticipate your
crude, cumbersome efforts at self-
praise by noting one or two of the1
facts-the real dope-about last
week's pool. You must admit, Pro-
fessor L., (Ed. note: Yes, he's
angling for a touch, all right)
that your score of 18 correct was
lower than the winning score for
the previous week-in fact ,it was
lower than first, second and third
places the previous week.
Furthermore I have affidavits

from several good souls and true
(Ed. note: Oh, a bribery suspect,
too) testifying as to your "eenie,
meenie" etc., etc., system of
choosing winners (It reminds me
of the system the King of Eng-
land uses to pick sheriffs for the
coming year-merely closing his
eyes and pricking a piece of paper
with a pin. Iknow it wasn't crick-
et to put this in but it's all I
could remember from Pol. Sc. 51
-a lovely course. That plug
should get you a grade). (Ed.
note: That touch again).
Finally, and I think this most
of all tells the truth of your hab-
its-you were the last one to en-
ter the pool. Before you ap-
peared, some 25 hearties had
made their selections and you
know, Lance-Corporal L. (Umm,
Humm, still expecting the touch),
that you merely took the con-
sensus of the wisdom of your bet-
ters-checked it by the "eenie,
meenie" system referred to above,
and went to town. That's hardly
playing the game, Chancellor L.
(Ed. note: Ho, ho! the touch
again), I will carry my case to the
Ann Arbor police force. But, then,
on second thought, they might
consume the whole 12 quarts.
I'll let it wait 'til we match
choices again come next Satur-
day. -Falstaff.
(late The Thin Man).

the season Saturday against Detroit
Tech, as the feature of the latter's

Coach Cliff Keen is hoping for
some help from the Varsity to bol-
ster his small squad. He is especially
in need of a passer to replace Dave
Gates, the Jay-Vees' captain and
spark-plug who is an uncertain
starter Saturday due to a knee in-
jury. At present, Tom Courtney and
Dom Kingery are being groomed to
fill his halfback post.

Football scouting is probably the
only legalized form of espionage in
existence today. Unlike war-which
has many of the characteristics of the
22-man Saturday strife-the scout-
ing is above-board and void of sec-
recy.
Thus the scout in football enjoys
an enviable position. He is not a fu-
gitive from the enemy; he is not dis-
honorably employed; and he is even
assisted by those of the opposition.k
He's Not A Sneak
Despite popular opinions on the
matter, the football scout today is not
a tree climber, a- sneak, or the uni-
dentified man in the long black beard.
He sits in the press boxes on Sat-
urday, has full information about the
enemy, munches the opposition's food
(gratis),and gets as complete a pic-
tire of the game as could possibly be
desired.
Why do teams scout their opposi-
tion? Wouldn't a hit and miss contest
be more interesting? Experience has
proven that scouting. adds to the in-
terest of the spectator. The contest
not only becomes a definitely planned
one, but eliminates the dishonesty and
suspicion of former days.

Iowa Drills On Offensive
Tactics For Michigan Tilt
IOWA CITY, Oct. 19.-( P)---Coach
Irl Tubbs drilled his Iowa football
team on offensive tactics today as he
prepared the Hawkeyes for the an-
nual Dad's Day game against Michi-
gan here Saturday.
The coach scrimmaged his first two
elevens and alternated the two teams
at carrying the ball.{
Ball handling also came in for drill,
with Tubbs attempting to discover
what is causing the Hawkeye backs;
to lose the ball so frequently.

All Taken
from

Coach Franklin C. Cappon, who is do-
ing regular scouting again for Mich-
igan after a seven year lapse, insists
that the opposite is the case.
Forgets About Ball
"You don't really enjoy a football
game that you are scouting," Cappon
said. You are completely detached
from the specator in your observation.
You don't watch the ball or the ball
carrier, and you must be completely
oblivious to the opposing team, which
you are not scouting."
The coaching staff at Michigan pre-
fers to scout a team for at least three
games, believing that this is necessary
to obtain adequate information. Dur-
ing the first contest, the scout watches
the team as a unit, sizing up their
style of offense, their defensive ten-
dencies, and most important and
difficult of all their intangible
strength.
,Watches Personnel
The next game he devotes his time
to personnel. Copious notes are taken
as to each member's style of play.
Does the tackle charge fast or does he
float? Is the end a sucker for a re-
verse? Who does the passing, and
who is the favorite receiver? Are they
set passes to spot, or running passes
thrown to optional receivers? All of
these factors, and innumerable oth-
ers, must be included in the scout's
report.
By the time the third game rolls
around, the scout is aware of most
of the opposition's plays and forma-
tions and simply looks for any varia-
tions.
It's No Fun
Scouting for the Wolverines this
year, besides Cappon, are Coaches
Weber, Oosterbaan, Keen, and Court-
right. Hunk Anderson assisted
Courtright and Keen in scouting
Michigan State's opener with Wayne;
Cappon has scouted Northwestern
and Iowa and will .begin watching
Pennsylvania this week; Weber has
been working on Illinois; Oosterbaan
scouted Minnesota and will start on
Ohio State this week-end, and Court-
right is scouting Chicago.
Fun-not very much! The scout
rarely, if ever, sees his home team in
action, and often finds three hard
weeks of work wasted when the Sat-
urday score becomes history. His job
is really a tough one-equiring in-
telligence, exacting effort, keen an-
alysis, and a thorough knowledge of
one of the biggest and most com-
picated businesses in America-foot-
ball.
