Pro fersor Quiz. ..

HOW MUCH football do you know?
Think it over, and you'll probably
ecme to the conclusion that your
gridiron knowledge is pretty scant.
You watch the game with a critical
eye; gasp as the tailback shoots
through for a 25 yard gain; cieer as
the fullback boots one 65 yards into
the coffin corner; occasionally yell
"nice block, xus," which immediately
places you in the light of an expert
whether you saw it or not; and above
all you exercise your ancient prerog-
ative as a fan-you boo the ref.
Yes, you boo the one guy who isn't
to blame, and who probably knows
more technical football than any per-
son on the field. When you stop to
think of how many rules a ref must
have at his beck and call, and then
compare same to your own gridiron
info, it may dampen-your antagonistic
ardor. Then, too, the ref merely exe-
cutes the penalties that the other
officials call. Why not try a "kill
de field judge" next time.
Football rules are a highly
complex business, and yet any
man who plays the game must
know them practically cold. Paul
Kromer's instinctive action last
Saturday when Valek's attempted
conversion was blocked is a good
example. Kromer is graced with
unusually fast reflexes-the label
of a true athlete--and yet a, good
share of his action is accountable
to a well grounded knowledge of
the rule book.
Up to Crisler's regime here, the
coaches regularly gave written foot-
ball rule quizzes. I don't know wheth-
eroFritz has continuedthe custom or
not, although I believe he prefers a
rapid fire oral quiz on the field. Last
spring, I happened across one of
these old written quizzes, stuck it in
the office drawer, and forgot about
it. Today it popped up again, and
I've decided to pass on a sample 10
questions to you. If you like the idea,
let me know, and it'll be made a
weekly feature.
H ERE ARE some of the questions
every player had to answer:
(1).Kicker of team A punting from
behind his own goal line kicks ball into
teammate who is on his own 2 yard
line. Ball recovered by team A back
of goal line. Decision? Suppose ball
js recovered by B?
(2) While one of team A is ad-
vancing with the ball a team B
player deliberately snatches ball
from his arms and runs for a
touchdown. Procedure?
(3) Team A kicks off. Team B punts
ball back and a member of team B
who was behind ball when kicked,
recovers ball on 50 yard line and runs
for a touchdown. Procedure?
(4) Team'A unts ball hits an

(9) On a punt from scrimmage by
A, B catches ball and makes a for-
ward which is intercepted by A, who
runs for a touchdown. Decision?
(10) On kick-off, A team drop-
kicks and B signals for a fair
catch, but A player jumps for ball
and recovers it. Decision?
C IOW to the answers. And don't for-

Freshmen Gridders Gird Loins
For Coming Varsity Onslaught

By DON WIRTCHAFTER
Coach Wally Weber's freshmen
football prospects prepared them-
, elves yesterday to be made into Var-
sity cannon-fodder next week.
After the next sabbath passes, their
fate (imagine with only two weeks of
practice behind them) is to run off
Minnesota's pet plays against Coach
Crisler's ravaging, blood-hungry Wol-
verines.
Scared? Oh No!
Are the bqys scared? Well, not ex-
actly. There are only about 75 of them,
making one of the smallest yearling
squads to report for duty in many a
year, but many of them have already
had a lot of football placed under their
belts, either in high school or else
prep schools and other colleges.
One Bob Westfall, for example, is
a local boy who has already made good
as a grid star at Ann Arbor High.
With the aid of his 170 pounds of
dynamite built on a five foot, seven
inch frame, he gained honorable men-
tion last year on the all-state squad.
Fleet, shifty, and hard-driving, his
specialty is heaving accurate passes
while traveling at top speed.
Another Wistert

be counted on. Last year they sent upi
Jack Meyer, Paul Kromer and 'Jeep'
Mahaffey.
Well they have done the trick again.
This time in the form of Harris Rob-
erts, six feet of quarterback, and Bob1
Ingalls, 195 pounds of center. Both
boys made great records last year at
the Pennsylvania prep school, where
football players are really football
players.
There are many more on the fresh-
men squad whose past performances
are worthy ofanote. They will get a
chance to really exhibit their stuff
when Coach Weber pits them against
chose big, bad Varsity men next
week.

Chicago pass plays and in general
gave the varsity backs a tough time.
Biggest laugh of the day came
when Bennie Oosterbaan, All-Ameri-
can end for three years, dropped an
easy pass. Crisler, however, refused
to admit that pass defense was strong
enough in spite of the varsity's ability
to stop the former greats. He ex-
plained it by laughing, "the coaches
have all put on weight."

both touchdowns Saturday, and Cap-

EAST LANSING, Oct. 5-(R)-The
Michigan State College football coach-
ing staff still is more concerned with
finding a charging line than it is in
preparing for Saturday's game here
with Illinois Wesleyan University.
Coach Charley Bachman has shak-
en the squads up so violently that no
linesman would be surprised to find
himself in the backfield, or vice versa.

Big Bill Smith, Varsity tackle, has
a brother on the squad who is just as
big as he is and plays at the same
position. Both are sons of Andy Smith
