After putting his men through their
.st intensive workout before the
am's invasion of the East Coach
'itz Criser yesterday named a squad
31 men who will make the trip to
ew Haven. Several more names
ill be added to the list before the
am leaves tonight.

Those who will make the trip as
listed yesterday are: ends-Vince
Valek, John Nicholson, Danny Smick,
Ed -Czak, Ed Frutig, and Elmer Ged-
eon tackles-Fred Janke, Bob Hook,
Don Siegel, and Bill Smith; guards-
Raph Heikkinen, Jack Brennan
Ralph Fritz, Milo Sukup, and Fred
Olds; centers-Archie Kodros, Horace
Tinker and Reuben Kelto.
Jordan Is u:
The backs named are Paul Kromer,
Norm Purucker, Dave Strong, Freddie
Trosko, Forest Evashevski, Jack Mey-
er, Lou Levine, Ed Phillips, Howard
Mehaffey, Tom Harmon, Ed Christy,
Wally Hook and Walt Kitti.
Injury again took its toll yesterday
as Butch Jordan, second-string tackle
since Joe Savilla was declared out of
Saturday's game, came up with a
charley-horse.
As a result of Jordan's injury which
will keep him out of the lineup
against Yale the Wolverines are left
with only three tackles who have
had previous Varsity experience. Bob
Hook, a sophomore, is the fourth
tackle making the trip but he has, as
yet, seen no service with the Varsity.
Pass Defense Again
Ralph Heikkinen ,the Wolverine
'Watch-Charm" guard and potential
All-American, took only a light work-
out yesterday, favoring a slightly
strained ligament in his leg but he is
3xpected to be in shape to start Sat-
trday.
Pass-defense and a long dummy
scrimmage occupied the team as they
went through a snappy workout.1
)ave Strong and Bill Luther, botht
excellent passers, flipped the ball for
nearly an hour as the other Varsty
>acks brushed up on defense.a
Humphrey Is Threat
It is expected that Yale's chief of-1
fensive threat will be its aerial at-
ack. Gil Humphrey, who was All-
America Clint Frank's understudy for
wo years, has come into his own and
his heaves last week, combined with
a 27 yard field goal from his toe,
gave the Bulldogs a sensational last
period win over the Navy.
The game will be the first meeting
>f the two institutions in over 50
rears. Back in 1882 when the teams
first met Yale was victorious 11-0.
rhe next year the Ivy Leaguers rode
'oughshod over Michigan to the tune
f 46-0. From that time to this the
Bulldog and Wolverine have not
lashed.
Yale Stresses Defense
NEW HAVEN, Conn., Oct. 19.-(')-
)ucky Pond gave his Yale outfit the
eaviest workout of the season today
n preparation for Michigan. Much
f the practice was given over to de-
ersive work, and the Elis ran into
ifficulty breaking up Michigan pass
ormations.

By HERB LEV
In this day of streamlined football,
continually more stress is being laid
upon speed. In recent years many a
coach has drafted a star sprinter
from his school's track team and
developed him into a quite capable
halfback.
This fall in Paul Kromer, Lorain,
Ohio sophomore, Fritz Crisler has
a halfback who earned quite a name
for himself as a dashman in his prep
school days, but Kromer differs from
the other cinder aces who've suc-
ceeded on the gridiron.
To Paul football always came first,
and he relishes heavy contact work.
Unlike Chicago's Jack Davenport,
Marty Glickman ofaSyracuse and
otherysub-10 secondigridders, who
usually attempt to pick up yardage
around the ends, Kromer, besides be-
ing a great broken field runner, is
a more than capable plunger. To
date, he's the leading Varsity scorer
with 25 points in three games, and

his first two touchdowns came as the
result of direct line bucks.
To find out about Pauil's past foot-
ball feats, all one has to is mention
the word Lorain to either Jack Meyer
or Ed Czak, present teammates of
Kromer on the Wolverine varsity.
They'll shamefully relate how for
three years Kromer, single-handed,
led his team to victory over their
Elyria eleven, to take the county
championship. Jack and Ed heartily
agree that it's a relief to see Kromer
in the same unform they're wearing.
Kiski prep near Pittsburgh was
Paul's next stop upon completion of
high school. Meyer, his high school
rival, went along with him and in
1936 they led their team-mates
through an undefeated season.'The
next fall saw this pair, along with
two more Kiski luminaries, Ralph
Fritz and Howard Mehaffey, matricu-
late at Michigan.
In his freshman year, despite his
yeoman work on the yearling eleven,
Paul got little chance to grab the

spotlight. One of his team-mates was
a lad named Tom Harmon, generally
considered the outstanding high
school player in the country the previ-
ous season, who was planted more
firmly in the public eye, due to greater
publicity during the course of the
season.
Spring came along with the new
coaching staff and one of Crisler's
first announcements was to the effect
that the best eleven men would play
football for Michigan in the fall. It
wasn't long before Harmon was
moved to right hafback, and Kromer
stationed on the left side.
Unusually cool and collected for a
19 year old youth, unusually powerful
for a 160 pounder, great things are
expected from Kromer before he com-
petes his Michigan career. In the
three games played thus far, he's
proven himself a capable alternate
for the veteran Norm Purucker, for
besides being the fastest man on the
squad, he ranks near the top as a
punter and passer.

might for a brief sixty minutes, while
the white-shirted reserves, simulating
Michigan State one week, Minnesota
the next and then Yale, take a two-£
hour beating from the Varsity almost
daily. With few time-outs, and no
substitutes at all, these week-day
heroes are always ready to stem the
Varsity's onslaughts with a seemingly
infinite supply of fighting strength.
It is upon them that Coach Crisler
looses his bag of tricks to be tested
and tried before facing each Satur-
day's foe. Oosterbaan's charges also
reverse the procedure, and try the
foes' plays on the Varsity. In either
case their treatment is the same and

.NEW YORK, Oct. 19.-(AP) -Ed
Danowski, former Fordham star now
Going his forward passing for the New
York Giants, is headed for a new
National Football League record for
completion of aerials.
Big Ed has completed 45 out of 76
tosses for 523 yards and an average
of 59 per cent. By continuing his
present pace, Danowski can establish
two new individual records for the
season. He is two passes a game
ahead of the 1937 schedule of Wash-
ington's Sammy Baugh, who com-
pleted 81 aerials last year for a new
league mark. Such a pace also would
shade by a few yards Baugh's 11-
game mark of 1127 yards gained on
completions.
Although Whizzer White of Pitts-
burgh and Max Krause of Washing-
ton were idle last Sunday they re-
tained first and second place, respec-
tively, ii ground gaining with 216
and 207 yards. Don Hutson of Green
Bay took undisputed possession of
first place in scoring with 31 points.
