Gridders Receive Setback As Cooper And Jordan
Star Halfback Will Stand
No Risk Of Permanent
Damage To Knee
Michigan's already frazzled foot-
ball hopes were dealt a double set-
back yesterday when Bob Cooper, ace
halfback, announced his withdrawal
from bigtime football, and it appeared
imminent that Forrest "Butch" Jor-
dan, outstanding guard aspirant and
Varsity heavyweight wrestler, would
withdraw from school.
Cooper's potentially brilliant play
has been consistently stymied by a
persistent injury jinx which has
dogged him since his sophomore year.
His action yesterday was precipitated
by the latest of his major grid in-
juries, a wrenched knee which he re-
ceived 'in scrimmage two weeks ago
and which has kept him out of
Chicago Trophy Winner
Financial difficulties were said last
night to be the motivating factor be-
hind Jordan's reported decision to
depart from the Wolverine ranks. In-
juries, however, have played a major
part in his collegiate athletic career,
water on the knee depriving him of
a letter in wrestling last season.
Cooper played only one year of'
high school football at Cooley High
in Detroit during which he gained a
reputation as a hard-hitting triple
threat back and was named on the
All-City and All-State teams. Living
up to his advance reputation, Cooper
was awarded the Chicago Alumni
Trophy after the 1935 spring practice
sIn jury Jinx' Marks Career
The "Injury Jinx" marked Cooper
for its own early in his sophomore
year when a wrenched knee ended his
usefulness as a back after two weeks
of practice. Undeterred, Cooper re-
turned his junior year and showed
so well that he was considered the
mainspring of the Kipke grid ma-
chine, falling victim to a fractured
collar bone in midseason after a
showing which was not up to ex-
pectations due to lack of seasoning.
Felled in practice by another in-
jured knee this season, Cooper de-
cided to turn in his suit only after
doctors informed him that another
crack on either of his knees might
render him a permanent cripple.

AN ASSISTANT manager shouted
on Ferry Field yesterday and sev-
eral gridders almost collapsed from
shock. The staccato of punts sound-
ed like a bombshell barrage, and once
when two reporters whispered dark
things about a third, the latter-,
standing 50 yards down the field-
flushed pale pink. The Wolverines
were burying a memory, and the
death-like stillness was deafening.
- Cappy Cappon's scout report of
Northwestern won't provide much
of a stimulus, for the Wildcats
stacked up like fierce, felonious
felines, with a backfield calculat-
ed to recall Michigan State's
pummeling herd of Pingel,
Haney, Pearce, Ciolek, et al.
Cappon, incidently, started out last
Friday to give Iowa a careful scrutiny,
but when he reached Chicago he
learned the Hawkeyes weren't play-
ing Bradley Tech until Oct. 9. That
required hasty alterations, and a con-
sultation with Wally Weber, who was
slated to scout Northwestern, en-
sued. Wally finally entrained for
Champaign, where Illinois almost got
whipped by DePaul, and Cappy chart-
ed the sad news for Michigan next
Michigan has the makings of a
good team, but they won't be able
to find out how good until after
Minnesota, Oct. 16.
Bob Zuppke attributes football
stardom to three things, a good run-
ner, a weak opposing defense and a
poet in the press box. We can prob-
ably find a poet.
One of life's darker mysteries is
that the only people admitted to
secret practice are newspaper-
men, informers of the entire na-
Another puzzler is that Bill Barclay
and Bob Campbell, two of the most
effective checks against passes during
last week, were getting bench burns,
especially after Michigan gained a
fourth quarter lead. Also, Fred Janke,
a great tackler, squirmed on the
wooden seat while his mates put on
an atrocious display of ozone grab-
bing in the first half of the Spartan
Dan Smick, whom Francis
Powers, a real expert, labelled
potential All-American stuff last
year, also watched most of the
State fray from a reserved seat
on the west side. When he did get
in, he must have forgotten which
side he was on, because he did
some exceptional slashing on de-
While Subs Scri
Michigan's crack halfback and
perennial victim of the injury jinx
who announced his retirement from
the grid wars yesterday.
The 1937 freshman track season is
well under way with 37 aspiring fresh-
men trying to show the coaches that
they are the best squad that has come
out for many seasons.
All of these men are working out in
preparation for the time trials and
relay meets that are to be held Oct.
8, 15 and 22. These meets will give
them their first chance to show their
ability to enter college competition.
According to Coach Ken Doherty,
although the squad is very well bal-
anced, it is outstanding in the sprints,
hurdles and quarter-mile. Most of the
boys that are out along with the fine
records that they set in high school
are big and rangy which makes them
good material to work on.
Many of the weight men are still
out for football, but they have said
that they will report later.
Appendicitis Is No
Trouble To Bryant
Baker Bryant, veteran free-style
swimmer and member of last year's
Big Ten record shattering 400 yard
relay team, was recovering in good
shape last night at University hos-
pital from an emergency appendec-
tomy which he underwent Sunday.
"It was no trouble at all," said the
hefty tankster in a telephone conver-
sation from his bed last night.

Michigan's gridders went back to
routine and an extensive workout
yesterday in an endeavour to tack to-
gether the loose ends Michigan State
left after last Saturday's contest.
In a two-hour scrimmage Coaches i
Harry Kipke and Hunk Anderson
sent a second team up and down
Ferry Field against the freshmen.
While the squad showed need for a
good deal of improvement in several
departments which were woefully
weak Saturday, it also showed a good
deal more fight during the scrimmage
than has heretofore been witnessed.
Practically the entire backfield which
saw action looked good as they made
sizeable gains through a fairly strong
yearling line during most of the prac-
Stress Pass Defense
Included in this team were Bill
Barclay, Fred Janke, Norm Purucker,
and Norm Nickerson in the backfield,
Nicholson, Valek at the flanks, Luby
and Kuhn, at the tackles, Vandewa-
ter and Pederson, guards, and Tinker
at the pivot post.
At the same time the Varsity team
composed of Farmer, Ritchie, Renda,
and Stanton in the backfield, Gedeon
and Floersch at ends, Siegel and Sa-
villa, tackles, Heikkenan and Bren-
nan, guards, and Rinaldi at center,
practiced on another field. Emphasis
in this session was primarily on plays
aimed at Northwestern's weak points.
Additional work was given in pass-
ing and pass defense although the
need for still more work in the de-
partment was apparent.
Preceding the long scrimmage ses-
sion punters spent a considerable per-
iod trying to add length to their kicks
while the linemen went through a
short blocking drill.
The condition of Fred Olds, junior
guard who was injured in the game
Saturday was uncertain. It was re-
ported that he pulled a lateral liga-
ment in his knee, and the probability
of his playing in the Northwestern
game this week-end is uncertain.
Fred Janke also was put on the in-
jured list following today's practice
with a injury reported to be water on
New Junior Varsity
To Meet State Oct. 9
The newly organized junior varsity
football team will inaugurate its sea-
son Saturday against the Michigan
State reserves at East Lansing.
Coaches Cliff Keen and Ray Court-
right, have been working with a squad
of about 25 during the past week,
and believe they have molded an ag-
gregation capable of holding its own
with teams of its class.
The jay-vees offense will be cen-
tered around Dave Gates, 174 pound
sophomore, who will hold down the
tail-back position. Originally a guard
candidate, Gates was moved to the
backfield to take advantage of his
speed. He has also proven himself
to be a capable passer and punter.
