been designated as starters. The lat-
ter will probably start if a groin in-
jury, which he has favored all week,
doesn't hamper him.
State Line Is Outweighed
Michigan's line outweighs their ad-
versar.y's by almost eight pounds to a
man. But Spartan speed offsets that
advantage. Bachman will present a
front of Gaines, the end-around ne-
mesis last year ,and Nelson, a dis-
tinct threat as pass receiver, at the
Harry Speelman, the line's inspira-
tional man, and Howard Swartz are
tackle starters. Darwin Dudley, a
sprinter-which makes his worth as
a guard inthe Notre Dame system
which Bachman espouses doubly
worthy and possibly Tom Gortat, a
noted blocker, will occupy the guard
berths. An injury may relegate Gor-
tat to an observer's role, in which
case Walter Lueck will likely start.
Norbert Miknavitch will occupy the
pivot post.
Backfield Not Certain
Only Doug Farmer, senior, and Tex
Stanton, junior letterman, are cer-
tain starters in the Michigan back-
field. Farmer will direct team play
at the quarterback post and also bear
considerable brunt of the blocking.
Stanton will start at fullback, but is
r certain to be replaced early by Fred
Janke,nconverted tackle who is a bear
on defense and may find himself as
a line bucker.
Kipke refused to designate his
starting tailback and wingback, but
reduced the choice between Norm
Purucker and Hercules Renda, the
midget sophomore, at the blocking
position, and Stark Ritchie and Fred
Trosko in the responsible running
and passing, and probable kicking,
Wally Hook, who appeared a likely
started earlier in the week, will also
see plenty of action.
Is Chief Threat
State's chief threat is Johnny Pin-
gel, a first-rate triple-threat. Pingel
is a dangerous runner, a sharp passer
even when on the run, and a great
kicker. This man, Michigan has
marked, and if he's throttled State
may show the results. But Usif Ha-
ney, fullback, can carry the freight,
John Coolidge carries the State
blocking load, abetted by signal-
caller Charley Halbert or Allen Die-
bold, the latter a better blocker, but
impeded by injury.
Gene Ciolek, a sub for Pingel, is
also a man to be watched. He is only
a shade below the Spartan ace, and
can execute the offensive with equal
Antiipates Pass Attack
Kipke anticipates a passing rush,
for he's drilled his charges against
State passing formations all week.
The Wolverine mentor definitely be-
lieves the Anderson-coached line will
withstand any battering.
At any event, the Wolverines will
strive to rehabilitate themselves at
Michigan State's expense. No one
doubts that this game holds the ke
to success or failure for Michigan
this season. "If we settle down early
we're liable to do it," is Kipke's
last minute comment. Bachman i

NOW COMES the time for your
hitherto cautious ASIDELINER
to cast his charts, scout sheets, time
tables, paper data, etc,, etc., into
the spinning globe, light up a meer-
schaum and then stick his ungainly
neck out for the scoffers' delight.
We've consulted the oracles and comeI
up with some startling tips on today's1

During the autumn we'll keep a
record of our predictions and see howi
much money we'd win-if we had the
blind gumption to expose a few bucks
to the hungry bet-mongers. So get
pencil and paper, chums, and hop
aboard. If you don't cop a week's
rent, then sue us .. .
Michigan-Michigan State, in the
Stadium-Expert and critic alike are
in perfect concord on this one. And
opinion to the. contrary notwith-
standing, your ASIDELINER is no
chump. He strings along. The win-
er ofthis one will-but definitely-
begin with an "M."
Northwestern-Iowa State, at Ev-
anston-We could be facetious here,
but that .would never do. Anyhow,
the Hawkeye crew will experience a
Heap of trouple.
Illinois-Depaul, at Champaign -
Bob Zuppke relishes as his favorite
dish a raw hamburger, over which he
spreads two raw eggs, broken per-

that he lays a'slab of raw onion. In
such a cannabalistic setting, Depaul

holes all week-in which to bury 11
Cornhuskers .. .
Iowa-Bradley Tech, at Iowa City
-We resent misinformation. Iowa
WILL win a game this year ...
Chicago-Vanderbilt, at Nashville,
Tenn.-Although they never did de-
termine what the governor of North
Carolina said to the governor of
South Carolina, they never could re-
fute the fact that men below the
M-D line are gentlemen, and cour-
teous to a fault Howsomever, and
notwithstanding, even southern chiv-
alry won't aid the erudite Maroons . .
Eeny Meeny ...
Purdue-Ohio State, at Columbus-
A rattlesnake would make a peculiar
pet; hyenas don't actually laugh,
they suffer from psychological mal-
adjustments; chewing gum on the
shoe sole is a provocative annoyance
. . . (who's avoiding the subject???)
Ohio State by a razzle .. -
Notre Dame-Drake, at South Bend
-Football's thin man, Elmer Lay-
den, has shed copious tears over his
Irish. That should be the tipoff. Not

since the Relays at home will the
Drake eleven have seen such run-

Pittsburgh-West Virginia, at Mor-
gantown-Two teams composed of
coal miners meet, only one team's
personnel came from a poorer, fi-
nancially, lot than the other; "hence
they're hungrier. So it's Pitt by
many dollars (Who's being subtle??)
Army-Clemson, at West Point-I
Army believes in dress rehearsal with
full use of artillery. Clemson, chums,
is the target .. .
Southern California-Washington,
at Los Angeles-Movie stars have a
fashion parade. Cui Bono? South-,

Fordham-Franklin and Marshall,
at New York-This is hardly fair,
sneaking two teams in on the Rams.
But when it's over, Franco and his
gang will have taken the F&M citadel
(Naw, studes, this is another Franco,,
a tackle!!!)
Wisconsin-Marquette, at Madison
-The Hilltoppers have lost Buivid
and the two burp boys, the Guepe
bros. So I have a mill on the
Badgers . . .
Louisiana State-Texas, at Baton
Rouge-Texans swear by the Bible,

Archie Kodros, sensational soph-
omore center, will replace Capt. Joe
Rinaldi in the starting lineup this
afternoon. His outstanding defen-
sive work won him the position.
Westfall Paces
Ann Arbor Hicoh
To 18-0_Victory
Paced by their captain and star
fullback, Bob Westfall, Ann Arbor
High's fast-moving football squad
defeated a highly touted Grosse
Pointe eleven last night at Wines
Field by an 18 to 0 score.
Westfall scored touchdowns in the
second and fourth quarters and
proved a bulwark on the defense as
the stout Pioneer line held Grosse
Pointe without a first down until
the last five minutes of the game
when the Pointers took to the air
to make their only long drive which
proved futile.
The first Ann Arbor score resulted
after Sam Neustadt, right end, re-
covered a fumbled punt reception by
the Grosse Pointe safety man on the
Pointer 36-yard line. Westfall raced
around his own left end and down
the sidelines 25 yards to a touchdown.
In the early minutes of the fourth
period, Westfall's pass to Kalb was
good for 23 yards after which Bob
hit left tackle for 10 yards and the
second touchdown.
The final score came later in the
last quarter when Bob Plichta in-
tercepted a Pointer pass and raced
25 yards to the five yard line, from
which point a line buck produced the
last six points.
CHICAGO, Oct. 1.-(P)-There will
be no $100,000 income from radio
broadcasts of the World Series this
year for the first time since 1933.

ence's ten big teams except Indiana'
and Iowa steps onto the gridironi
this afternoon either to open its 1937c
season or to play its second game.
Minnesota travels to Lincoln, Ne-
braska to play the keyed-up and dan-
gerous, University of Nebraska. Min-
nesota, confident of coming through
on the top side of the score will nev-
ertheless find the going tough.
The Cornhuskers are not a team
with which to dilly dally, especially
on their home grounds and it may
take another Merriwell run, duplicat-
ing Andy Uram's gallop of 70 yards
last year, for the Gophers to retain
their record of only one defeat in the
last three years.
Predict Buckeye Win
Next to the Minnesota-Nebraska
tiff and outside the state of Michigan,
Purdue and Ohio State draw the
limelight to Columbus. This game
is the only inter-conference game
With Coach Francis Schmidt back
at the helm, the Buckeyes are expect-
ed to open up their big bag of tricks
for the Boilermakers' inspection.
Whether Purdue can overcome the
glitter stuff will depend on whether
or not its great tri-threat back, Cecil
Isbell, can offset the State stuff by
his superb passing. His tosses last
week threw Butler for a 37-7 loss in
the last quarter.
Experts Select Wisconsin
Wisconsin, selected by experts as
the teami to watch, expects to defeat
Marquette at Madison after trounc-
ing S. Dakota State last week. The
Badgers are undoubtedly much
stronger and speedier than a year
Chicago, with the remembrance of
last year's 37-0 wallop received at the
hands of Vanderbilt meets the Com-
I modores today at the southern
grounds. Vanderbilt's triumph over
strong Kentucky a week ago bodes
ill for Clark Shaughnessy's Maroons.
Northwestern opens its season
against Iowa State at Evanstonthis
afternoon and the Big Ten cham-
pions may rest assured.
Coach Bob Zuppke's Illini again
face DePaul and will once more at-
tempt to win.
All members of the freshman
swim squad are asked by Coach
Matt Mann to report to the pool
in the I-M building Monday after-
