Squad To Drill
This Afternoon
At Philadelphia'

mediocre squad awaits, the boys
seemed as enthusiastic about a trip
as an agraphobic octogenarian. With
subtle charges and dire whisperings
floating about them, the boys can't
make head or tails of "things" around
Ann Arbor.
Stark Ritchie was hopeful of getting
a "bonus" with his pay check this
week, although Norm Purucker would
settle for just the "bonus." Elmer
Gedeon complained of being a few
dollars shy in his pay envelope, and
Lou Levine wanted to know where all
this dough was coming from and how
one could get his fingers on some of it.
In short, the subsidization talk
amused them.
But Pennsylvania lies ahead, with a
fair foward wall, with a makeshift
backfield, including a couple of pro-
moted Jay-Vees. Harvey Harmon,
Quaker coach, lost an all-star back-
field and hasn't been the same since.
Michigan will throw a promoted Jay-
Vec back at them in John Kinsey, who
is a good punter but who gets his
chance because Tex Stanton's block-
ing leaves much to be desired. Ritchie
and Purucker temporarily eclipse
Trosko and Barclay, whereas Wally
Hook seems to be dropped from the
scene altogether. Doug Farmer re-
mains the No. 1 quarterback choice,
although Levine has suddenly been
"found." No radical alterations have
been made in the line.
The coaches have troubles, other
thanthose affecting the immediate
squad. The boys are curiously per-
plexed. And so we ride away so the
city of brotherly love . . .
Random Ramblings . ..
The periodic drawer-and-pocket-
cleanup-department is about due for
some recognition. Briefs of interest,
collected at random, follow:

Wally Weber who has picked the
winners (and without pecuniary gain)
all season. He called his shot in the

Farmer As Mates
Thirty-four Michigan football play-
ers, bolstered by three straight Con-I
ference wins and a season's average of
.500, headed for Philadelphia, Pa., yes-
terday for their third and final inter-
sectional tussle with Pennsylvania's
mediocre Quakers.
The squad left Ann Arbor at 6:41
p.m. and will arrive in Philadelphial
this morning. They will be quar-
tered at Greenville Farms in subur-I
ban Overbrook, and will drill this af-
ternoon at Franklin Field, scene of
tomorrow's game.
Roland Savilla, husky sophomore
tackle, who has been shelved by in-I
juries was a last minute choice to
make the trip but is a doubtful par-
ticipant tomorrow. Fred Olds, also'
on the injury list since the Michigan>
State game, was another surprise

Final Drill Is Longl
Yesterday's drill was a long one, f
darkness finally calling a halt to pro-
;ceedings after almost three hours of
work. Offense and defense both re-
ceived attention, with Coach Cappy
Cappon directing the Jay Vees who
used Pennsylvania plays against the
first and second team. All three Var-
sity teams ran through plays and
I passing was given special attention.

Kromer Tells Board
Rumor Is 'roundless'
Late last night no further de-
velopments had been reported in
the Athletic Board's investigation
of the subsidizing of certain fresh-
man football players.
It was revealed that Paul Kro-
mer, star halfback from Kiski
Prep, had been interviewed by the
board and had vehemently denied
the rumors declaring them to be
Kromer stated that the reason
he had come to Michigan was be-
cause he had wanted to attend

three teammates who also attend-
ed Kiski were not called before the
board. They previously stated they
had decided to attendtthe U. of M.
because they all wanted to go to
the same school.
