Varsity Linemen Smother Chicago Plays

PRESS PASSES
By BUD BENJAMIN
PRIVATE SIGHTS of a public sightseer:
Collegiana a la Crisler in green gabardine trousers, grey coat, and
black and white saddle shoes surprised this chronicler no end yesterday in
the athletic office . . . Fritz, Wally Weber, Prof. Ralph Aigler, Matt Mann,,
and Campbell Dickson were present with football the topic of conversation
"No cheap touchdowns against State," remarked Crisler. "Fourth
quarter with their first team back after a rest and we marched 76 yards- for
a score" . . Crisler may start his sophomores this week instead of the
veteran bacfield . . . They've had their baptism now while last week they
were a little unsteady . . . While enthused students call slide rules, calcula-
tors, and addographs into use to figure out how many touchdowns we'll
score tomorrow, Crisler flares up at the least mention of a rout . . . If you
don't believe it ask the local Detroit Times correspondent . . . Dan Smick,
who practically won last year's Maroon game single handed, is among
the leading objectors to this business about a rout ... "They always point
for one game," said Danny, "and this one's .it. They'll be tough, but they
can't lick our bunch. Too many reserves" . . . Smick's great ambition is
to score a touchdown before he's through . . . "That would even beat my
homer with the bases loaded at Wisconsin last spring," exclaims Dan.

TALLY WEBER is scouting Illinois
again, and it's the eighth season
that the vociferous freshmen coach
has done so . . . "They know me so
well down there," reports Wally, "that
when I enter, the gate keeper in the
press box gives me a 'hi'ya Weber, so
you survived the storm for another
year, eh!'" . . . Don't sell the Illini
short, says Mr. W. . . . Plenty of
poundage this year, and Zup has ap-
parently canned the flea circus and
flying trapeze . . . In two games,
they've amassed over 600 yards from,
scrimmage, and their Ohio U. defeat
may be accounted to six fumbles, five
of which the Bobcats recovered .
Weber looks for the Illini to give Indi-
ana a real scrap tomorrow and pos-
sibly winding up on the long end of
the score . . I'll owe him a cigar if
they do . . Chicago Tribune's Wilr
frid Smith expects Michigan to. win
three and lose two this year . . .

Minnesota and Northwestern, he fig-
ures, will tie for the honors with four
games won and one lost . . . Campbell
Dickson has a big job tomorrow when
he scouts the Yale-Penn game . . .
Both teams are on the Wolverine
schedule but Dickson, naturally, will
be giving special attention to the Elis,
whom we meet in two weeks . . . Ed
Andronik, varsity hurler last spring,
is back in town and says business is
lousy with college grads settling for
gas station attendants jobs . . . Prof.
Aigler is enthused about an Ohio foot-
ball uroduct who is a triple threater
with a vengeance . . . He can pass
with either right or left arm besides
run and kick, and his father is a
Michigan alum . . . Besides that he s
a buddy of Aigler's nephew who plays
on the same high school team . . . If
you think the Minnesota game is a
hopeless case you ought to talk to'
some of the varsity men!

In Expectation Of Tricky
Maroon Offensive
For the first time since the State
game gave the Wolverines an idea
of how good- they might be, the var-
sity, at practice yesterday, showed
some of the latent potentialities that
the Spartan game displayed.
When the reserves ran through Chi-
cago plays the potent varsity line
smothered them before they started.
mOn punt receiving, the backfield and
even some of the linemen were afford-
ing the receiver excellent protection
and their blocking was vicious.
Rehearse Plays
Only once were the ends sucked in
on a favorite Maroon play, an end
run from punt formation. This is the
same play that Sollie Sherman used
with such effectiveness last year when
two of these fake kicks led to later
touchdowns. The varsity will be
watching for this play on Saturday.
The rest of the scrimmage was spent
in rehearsing both old and new plays
which will probably be used tomorrow.
Here the confident air of the varsity
was still evident. Assignments were
frequently missed, ball carrier missed
their holes, but when assignments
were carried out the plays were things
of beauty. If Crisler has taught his
men nothing else he has taught them
how to block.
Line-up Uncertain
Selecting Saturday's starting line-
up is like stopping a barber from
talking. The backfield is indefinite,
the line, hampered by minor injuries,
is doubtful. One thing is as certain as
anything can be-many players are
likely to see action on Saturday. Such
backs as Renda, Strong, Christy, Kitti,
Levine and Mehaffey who didn't play
last Saturday are pretty sure of see-
tng some action this week.
Captain Fred Janke will probably
not start at tackle. His leg injury,
while practieally gone, will keep him
from seeing much service. Bil Smith's
injured knee is definitely healed al-
though he did not work out yesterday.
Elmer Gedeon and Joe Savilla, both
of whom were out of the State game
'ecause of injuries, are sure of seeing
action while Savilla is a possible start-
er at tackle.
GOLFERS ATTENTION

Golf Tourney begins this week-send.

JOHN TOWNSEND, incomparable cage captain last season, is a law stu-
dent here and will assist Bennie Oosterbaan in basketball . . . Besides
these two big jobs, Jake will play pro ball on Sundays for the Hammond
(Ind.) Americans . . . His teammates will be Johnny Wooden, Bob Kess-
ler, and Jewell Young-all of Purdue-and Louie Boudreau of Illinois.
Which is about the best talent the Conference has produced in a decade.-.
"We should be pretty fair," retorts the silent John . . If my lone lady read-
er is interested she might spread the following info around . . . Two deserv-
ing athletes, Harold Nichols and Phil Balyeat, are selling Michigan scarfs
for the fairer sex, and they're really beauties . . . Nichols is the captain of
the wrestling team while Balyeat is a great sophomore track prospect . . .
The,duo are a couple of real guys and deserve a break . . . Golf-pro Tommy
Armour's son, John, is enrolled as a freshman here but prefers baseball 4
. . . The "One Man Gang" Evashevski didn't get a serious mark against
State but his feet took a terrific beating . . . Reminds me of blocking back
Ernie Pinckert of Southern California who hated to run with the ball because'
of tender dogs . . . Bennie Oosterbaan is scouting Minnesota again ..
The way the Gophers are switching their men about makes one wonder hov-
tough they really are . . . Washington was an over-rated club as their
Idaho tie of last Satidee shows . . . Vic Heyliger's off for Detroit this week-
end where he'll train with the Detroit Red Wings . . . HEY CUBS, WAKE
UP.. . THERE IS MUCH AT STAKE!

Dean Downcast At Defeat
CHICAGO, Oct. 6- P)-"I throwed
myself out."
With these four words Dizzy Dean
told thestory of his gallant ditching
in the chill of Wrigley field today
with the Yankees lambasting him for
two home runs, after he had them
in check with his marvelous cunning
until the eighth inning.
Dean appeared to be crushed over
the disaster.
