To Face Yale Bulldog
By BUD BENJAMIN
EDITOR'S NOTE: I arranged an exchange column with George Chittenden, sports
editor of the Yale News, today, and here's what he has to say about the Bulldog and
their football fortunes.
Speaking Of Eli .,..
By GEORGE 1H. CHITTENDEN
THE 1938 EDITION of the Yale football team brings a new problem to th
Blue coaches. For the past four years or so men like Larry Kelley and
Clint Frank have graced the .Yale gridiron with their All-American tactic
and propensities toward winning games single handed. This year Head
Coach Ducky Pond has no such paragons around whom to build his team.
His line material is stronger than last year's, but the backfield material i
limited, and there are no outstanding stars.
The first part of the schedule was disastrous. The team was prematurely
routed out of its training quarters at Gales Ferry by the hurricane that
Sswept New England. Having lost a few days of precious practice after
making a late start anyway, the Blue went in against Columbia totally un-
prepared for what was in store for them. Columbia's Sid Luckman ran and
passed circles around the green Elis, to build up a score of 27-14 against
them. The Yale end and tackles were consistently being pushed out of the
plays, and the backs could not shake loose. Yale's scores came on a blocked
kick which Bill Jchn picked up and carried over. Bud Humphrey passed tt
fast Al Wilson for the other. Al covered some fifty yards for the score.
Against Penn the following Saturday Yale was still comparatively
impotent. The Quakers took it at a walk for a 21-0 victory. Yale had but
ene real chance to score and muffed that. Peiins Frank Reagan was the
outstanding star of the game, szoring one and paving the way for the
other. Yale was improved slightly, but still could not put together an
Against Navy last Saturday, the first half had all the earmarks of
another futile day for Yale. Navy did everything better, with the exception
of Johnny Miller's great kicking for Yale. But the Bulldogs came back
after the half with a new spark and one of the fanciest passing attacks seen
in the Bowl for many years. Bud Humphrey proved to be the unisputed
hero of the day when his passing to Buck Dyess and Johnny Miller brought
the ball to within scoring distance again and again. His short pass to Bill
Snavely gave Yale their first score, but when the etra point effort..failed'
the score was still 7-6 against them. Another field length drive left Humphrey
seven yards out and right in front of the goal posts. With Al Wilson holding
the ball he kicked for the three points that were enough to win the ball
game. A mere summary of the scoring is hardly enough to picture the
indomnitable spirit that carried the Elis above repeated disheartening
breaks and won the game for them.
The spirit that Yale finally got halfway through their tird game
is essentially the same thing that has won many a game for them in
the past when they seemed to be the underdog in every way. It also makes
them nobody's pushover for the rest of the season. Michigan comes to
New Haven with more weight and power and consequently the favored
team. But there will be fireworks before that afternoon is over.
The Yale lineup as it faced Navy last week, and as it will probably be
against Michigan, had nine Seniors, one Junior and one Soph'omore. Bill
Starbuck and Cape Burnam, tackle and guard respectively, were the two
lower classmen. Buck Dyes and Bill Moody are the Senior ends. Neither is'
particularly tall, but they make up for that with their pass-catching abilities.
Big Bill John, 220-pounder, pairs up with Starbuck at tackle. He has not
made many mistakes during his three year career with the Blue. Charlie
Miller is the veteran left guard. The fact that he has played a good part
of every game for the past three years is evidence of his steady ability.
Captain Bill Platt plays either tackle or center, and both capably. He will
probably start at center this week as he did against Navy.
The backfield features four more Seniors. Bud Humphrey, as
quarterback and passer, comes as near being a star as any one on the
team. His signal calling has been
beyond reproach, and according
to the ends, who should know
what they are talking about, he

State To Abandon
Its 'T' Formation I
EAST LANSING, Oct. 1.-(Pm)-
Coach Charley Bachman today con-
firmed the suspicions of observers
that the Michigan State Colege foot-1
ball team has abandoned, at least
temporarily, the Notre Dame back-
Insted of lining up in the usual "T"
formation and then skipping to af
"Z" lineup in the backfield, the play-
ers will now take up the latter position
immediately and put the ball in play.
"It worked against West Virginia,"
Bachman said, "and I can't see any
reason why it won't do for the rest
of the season."
Bachman indicated the original
purpose , of the shift: to keep the
opponent guessing where the weight
of the attack was to be thrown and
the rhythm obtained in the lock-step
skip no longer was necessary.
Preparing rapidly to meet Syra-
cuse's mighty array here Saturday,
the coaching staff found its greatest
problem that of plugging the hole
left by Gene Ciolek's injury. In recent
drills, Art Harris, of Walled Lake,
and Casey Klewicki of Hamtramck,
have been getting the most attention.

All of these boys will get their big
chance next week when they will show
their wares before eastern observers
