Passing In




n Again, Out Again.

JUST WHEN Head Coach Harry
Kipke seemed to have determined
a likely backfield foursome, compli-
cations set in. They developed after
last Saturday's scrimmage, during
which a few of the veteran backs sil-
ently, though overtly, expressed their
refusal to be forgotten.
Going into that Stadium workout,
the Varsity quartet consisted of Fred
Janke at fullback, Hercules Renda
at the wingback, Norm Purucker at
tailback, and Bob Campbell, at the
non-signal calling quarterback post.
Something about their combined tal-
ents evidently failed to satisfy Kipke's
backfield recipe this season, for on
Monday only Purucker remained of
the original four and he was sta-
tioned ,t a spot somewhat new to
him ,the wingback position.
Doug Farmer, who rated the
No. 1 quarterback job before he
suffered a mental lapse due to a
reported blow on the skull, was
associating again with the first
string, with Wally hook at tail-
back, and Tex Stanton, junior
letterman, at full. Hook had
been convalescent with an infect.
ed foot, but was sufficietly im-
proved on Saturday to glean
praise in the public prints for his
running game.
Fred Janke is still in the experi-
mental stage, with latent potentiali-
ties no one will deny. But he lacks
experience and finesse at the full-
back post, and with a stadium full of
curious eyes he might react unfavor-
ably. Fred has been the cynosure
of all eyes before, including theen-
emy 's-but at tackle, where he proved
a veritable powerhouse until clipped
by a zealous Gopher last season.
Stanton understudied Cedric Sweet
several times last year and gained in-
valuable assurance as a result. What
he lacks in grid capabilities is not for
us to say, but he shouldn't be afflict-
ed with the jitters before a large
crowd. Not that Janke would. He
isn't that kind of fellow, and when
the game got under way he'd prob-
ably forget there was a soul in the
stands. But the presence of an-

W7E HAVE a soft spot ior the un-
sung hero. And though he isn't!
yet a hero, and from a strict hunch,
will probably never be one, Derwoodl
Laskey, Milan sophomore, typifiesf
something for us. Last week, the fel-
low participated in practically everyl
scrimmage, alternating at wingbackI
one day, tailback the next. He took
a merciless beating, returned each
time for more and never once did
he whine about it. Several times he
arose staggering back to his slot,
straining for breath. He made some
sizeable gains.
Saturday he distinguished himself
defensively, according to our infor-
mer, cracking some of the bigger boys
for an old-fashioned row. They can't
deal him too much work, they can't
dampen his spirit and they'll have
a tough time curbing him. He, gentle
reader, is one of the redeeming fea-
tures of the organized mayhem on
Ferry Field. And several of the mal-
contents might profit by the example.
Tod Rockwell, a newspaperman
(and maybe he can be excused on!
that ground), Harry Wismer, a
broadcaster, and plenty of others in-
sist upon reporting that if Michigan
State beats Michigan this Saturday,
it will be the first time the feat has
been accomplished four years run-
ning.hPardon our accuracy, fellows,
but have a look at the Michigan-
Cornell record half century ago:
1889 - Michigan 0 Cornell 56
1890 - Michigan 5 Cornell 20
1891 - Michigan 12 Cornell 58

defense session against a series of
Spartan line plays. Especially out-
standing was the work of Bill Smith
at tackle. His showing was little
more than mediocre in last Satur-
day's scrimmage, but his work yester-
day showed a vast improvement.
Later in the afternoon found the
squads drilling in full groups of
eleven, some working against the
State system, others running through
signals. The way practice has been
run and the great number of players
being shown special attention by the
coaches indicates that there will be
very frequent substitutions in the
game Saturday.
At present it appears that the
starting lineup will find Tex Stanton
at full, Norm Purucker at wingback,
Wally Hook at tailback and Doug
Farmer at quarterback in the back-
field with John Nicholson and Art
Valpey at ends, Don Siegel and Bill
Smith at tackles. Fred Olds and
either "Butch" Jordan or Ralph
Heikkinen at guards and Capt. Joe
Rinaldi at center.


Stark Ritchie, veteran backfield star, is being groomed for the
throwing end of Michigan's aerial attack against State Saturday, to
judge from yesterday's intensive passing drill through which Coach
Harry Kipke sent his charges. Ritchie, who is fast becoming a power-
ful triple-threater, will, if needed, also be called upon to share the
burden of running and passing against the Spartans.
