arsity Offensive Attack Stalls In Scrimmage With Frei


Kinsey, Ritchie

Punting Drills
Freshmen Stop Regular's
Passes Using Quaker
Preparation for next Saturday's
football game with the University of
Pennsylvania entered its second
stanza yesterday with the Michigan
team looking the poorest it has looked
in practice for quite some time.
Dummy scrimmage was the essence
of yesterday's workouts with a fresh-I
man team using Pennsylvania's de-
fenses showing at times considerably
more spark and life than the Varsity
and breaking through on numerous
occasions to smother the Varsity's at-
tempted aerials and stopping running
plays in their tracks.
The changes made by Coach Kipke
in Monday afternoon's backfield were
not adhered to as much yesterday.
Continual shifting of backs and line-
men gave practically every man on
the squad a chance to take part in
the drills.
Punting also came in for some at-
tention when John Kinsey, the soph-
omore who was moved up from the1
Jayvee team last week to fill in
at fullback was given individual
pointers after practice. Along with
Kinsey in the punting drill was Stark
Ritchie who is also being groomed as
a punter for the Penn game.
The freshman team that was used
as defense against the Varsity of-
fensive drillcame through the first
string line and blocked a great many
passes. The freshmen used the Penn-
sylvania defensive formations effec-

University of Pennsylvania in the

Field Saturday.
Coach Harvey Herman said the
senior wingman, who has accounted
for three of Penn's eight touchdowns
this'season, would be able to start. He
saw brief service in last week's game
with Penn State.

One Act Mystery: Scene I -.--I
In an attempt to allay certain rumors'about subsidization here at Mich-
igan, the Board in Control of Athletics certainly pulled the prize faux pas
of the local season yesterday.
It seems that the righteous Board heard, strictly on the Q.T., you under-
stand, that certain zealous Michigan alumni had created a slush fund for1
maintenance of a few rugged gridders who show promise of returning thek
Wolverines to the football crest in the next few years. And to prove it's
cognizant of insidious charges floating about, it issued a public statement
to the effect.I
Prof. Ralph W. Aigler, chairman of the athletic board, adds this lucid l
comment: "The statement speaks for itself."
In that case, the statement adds a measure of credence to the
allegations. Why make the rumors a matter of national knowledge
by stating reverently that you're going to investigate them? Alumni
and others aware of Michigan's recent grid fiascos will immediately
draw just one conclusion: "Michigan's going out to get them now!"
If the board wanted to get at the core of the situation it might have
thoroughly investigated the so-called rumors before acknowledging
their existence. Now, all sorts of conjurations will be directed at
Michigan, and the resultant stench is likely to be very unsavory.
Although the board took great care not to reveal the nature of the
rumors, except to say they involved certain freshmen on campus last year
who flunked out anyhow and certain other freshmen here now, it's a matter
of common gossip among those presumably on the inside that finances
were supplied through a local manufacturing concern. This establishment
was merely the medium through which the alumni reached their boys.
What happened, according to the rumors is that the manufacturer kept
paying out, and when the alumni failed to reimburse him completely, he
became incensed and let the cat out of the bag. From a reliable source,
however, we've learned that the boys supposedly involved earned every cent
they drew-by honest sweat. Besides, they had board jobs which took no
small amount of their time.
Inasmuch as those fellows were dropped from the University because of
scholastic shortcomings, the board might well have left the statement in its
Here's the Conference rule which was allegedly violated:
"No scholarship, loans or remissions of tuition shall be awarded on
the basis of athletic skill, and no financial aid shall be given to
students or individuals by organizations, alumni or other, with the
purpose of subsidizing them as athletes or of promoting the athletic
success of a particular university."
The athletic board is either extremely gullible or possesses a woeful
lack of insight into alumni nature (we were inclined to say human
nature) to think that the above rule has remained inviolable at Mich-
igan. In fact, we defy any Big Ten school, Chicago not excluded, to
claim, with honest conviction, strict adherence to that rdle.. Alumni
supported Michigan greats of the past and will probably support
Michigan greats of the future-as long as football remains the big
business that it is today.
If the athletic board intended tb drag a red herring across some obscure
trail, to appease certain factions, it shouldn't have invited the whole nation
in on it.
