Vest Pocket Guard. .
' OME TIME next month the annual meeting of the all-American picking
staffs will be held in New York. They say it's a spirited gathering,
strangely reminiscent of Diamond Jim Brady's famed parties and a Barbara
Hutton tea. Gathered are a groun of newspaper experts, unemployed
coaches, assorted stooges, and similar characters. The room is filled with
smoke, and the conversation flows glibly and thick. The tinkle of ice, and
the musical swish of soda is typical. All faces are wracked in thought.
Suddenly a dumpy little guy, who incidentally has never been west of
Albany because of an innate fear of Indians, is going to pop up:
"Boys, we need a right guard. Who shall it be?"
Immediately the crew will begin rifling huge stacks of paper on which
various reports, recommendations, and data is written. The following con-
versation is likely to ensue:
"How about Ketchum from Arkansas?"
"Nope, we've got a tackle from Rice and that should hold the
"Well, they say Gedunk of California is pretty hot."
"Can't use him. We've got Potts from U.C.L.A. at center."
"Why not Osmalkowxyz of Fordham?"
"Sorry, I insist that we keep Porolyszki of Columbia at end."
Silence will reign. Fertile brains seek new fields. Suddenly someone is
certain to offer- ,
"Perhaps Heikkinen of Michigan is the boy."
That's when I'd like to be present. For, in this book, if ever a player
deserved national recognition it is the brilliant Ralph Heikkinen, 180 pounds
of inspired dynamite in a great Michgan line.
This corner has no quarrel to pick with the all-American teams. By and
large they have proven to be competent groups. But there is one irrevocable
fact of salient importance in these national selections. They are composed of
men made by the newspapers. Yes, the coaches have their say and even the
players have been consulted, but it's an old adage that the first job in making
an all-American is to get his name before the public until they are fairly
numb from hearing and reading about him.
Take Larry Kelley of Yale, for example. A fine end, Kefley, but
the degree to which the press increased his repute and exaggerated his
prowess is inestimable. There are thousands of examples to prove the
point. k
RALPH HEIKKINEN plays a position of minor newspaper importance. That
is unfortunate. Hewill score no touchdowns (directly), catch no passes,
and boot no field goals. Most of his work is of a highly technical and subtle
nature which escapes the eyes of most of the average fans and not a few of
the newspaper men. Yet, Heikkinen is a
superb performer.
He came out of a small town in
northern Michigan, Hike did, a sandy
haired, extremely reserved Finnish boy
with an irrepressible urge to play football.
He had lived in Ramsay, Michigan, but his
high school football had been played at
Bessmer in the Michigan-Wisconsin
league. Only five foot nine inches, guard
was the only nosition for a man of his
stature, and a guard he was.
He's an unusual man, this Heikkinen.
Put him next to your surprisingly inac-
curate conception of the average' football
player, and you'll find a remarkable con-
trast. He's extremely intelligent, dabbling
. in such fields as creative writing, the
drama, and poetry with considerable vim
and no little skill during his spare mo-
ments. He is completely unassuming, un-
" usually quiet, and above all a real gentle-
RALPH HEIKKINEN man. He has a rare sense of humor, and,
should the occasion arise, a biting tongue. The story has it that Gerry Ford,
former Michigan center and present Yale scout, tried to feed Hike a line
at Minneapolis last week on how great Michigan's team was and how im-

Crisler Adds
Five To Squad
For Yale Trip
Wolverines Are Confident
As The Embark; Jordan:
And Renda join' Team
A confident pack of 36 Wolverines
left last night for the East where
they will meet the )'ale Buidogs
Saturday in the first meeting be-
tween grid squads of the two institu-
tions since 1883.
Five names were added yesterday
by Coach Crisler to the list of those
making the trip. Butch Jordan,
tackle, Hercules Renda, halfback,
Dennis Kuhn, tackle, Ernie Zielinski,
end, and Bill Luther, halfback, were
those who took off on the Wolverine
special as a result of the last minute
Jordan Makes Trip
Jordan, whose charley horse was
expected to keep him out of the line-
up Saturday, will be fit to play ac-
cording to Tainer Ray Roberts. As
a result Joe Savilla, tackle, and Der-
wood Lasky, halfback, who has a'
bad shoulder, are the only two Wol-
verines who will be left at home be-
cause of injuries.
Coach Crisler put )his men through
one of the longest workouts of the
year yesterday and Ferry Field rang
withcries of "Yale Saturday," "Nice
Goin', Jank," and "That's'pulling
'em in, Vince" until dusk cut the
practice short at 6 o'clock.
Plenty Of Kicking
A great deal of emphasis was placed
on kicking during the first portion of
the session as Crisler sought to remedy
the point after touchdown situation
which led to such dire results in last
week's heartbreaking loss.
Freddie Trosko, best of last year's
place kickers, and Vince Valek, who
has been most successful in that de-
partment this year, spent nearly an
hour kicking from the three yard
line as well as from further out.
More Passing
Pass defense and offense were also
stressed as they have been all week
and an eytended signal drill wound
up the workout.
Reports coming out of New Haven
tend to place Yale in the position of a
decided underdog but it is quite prob-
able that the Eli passing attack, which
subdued the Midshipmen last week in
a great last quarter surge, will give
the Wolverines plenty of trouble
Humphrey Leads
Paced by Bud Humphrey, a sensa-
tional pitcher last week, Yale's best
bet is its speedy backfield. Al Wilson,
rated by Coach Crisler as a great back,
Bill Snavely, and Johnny Miller,
will round the backfield which Coach
Ducky Pond of the Elis is expected to
The game, which marks the return
of a Crisler coached eleven to the Yale
Bowl, is expected to draw in excess
of 35,000 persons. Crisler's last trip
into the lair of the Bulldogs resulted
in a 26-Q loss for his Princeton team.

Another Yale Man


Al Wilson, senior backfield man
of the Eli squad, will be one of the
many Yale men that Coach Crisler
and the Wolverine team will have
to watch very closely Saturday af-
ternoon. In the game against Navy
Al received a pass, then' ran 50
yards to score a touchdown.
Pond Revises
Yale's Lineup
Lane Changed As Elis Drill
Against Michigan Plays
NEW HAVEN, Conn., Oct. 20.-OP)-
Head Coach Ducky Pond announced
today that he planned to put another
revised edition of the Yale football
team on the field Saturday to start
against Michigan.
Little Felix Caracciolo, fiery five-
foot, five inch guard, has replaced
Cape Burnam at left guard; Bill Platt
will be back at center with Cy Taylor
taking over the injured Bill, Star-
buck's left tackle position.
The rest of the line will remain the
same. Buck Dyess goes in at left
end, Charlie Miller at right guard,
Bill John at right tackle and Bill
Moody at right end.
The backfield, unchanged, has Bud
Humphrey calling signals, Al Wilson
and Johnny Miller halfbacks and
Bill Snavely fullback.
The Elis went into the Bowl today
for another practice session gainst
Michigan plays. Bill Renner, Jay-
vee coach and former Michigan great,
was heaving the passes fo- the Grays
but without Wednesday's luck.
The first string Bulldogs kept their
helmts off and refrained from con-
tact during the afternoon. At dusk,
the squad moved to Anthony Thomp-
son field and worked on their own
offensive plays for an hour under

,possibly inferior the Bulldog' eleven
would be. Heikkinen, in his typically
pungent manner, nipped Ford's eulo-
gies in the bud with some poignant
remarks on who was trying to kid
who and how.
Heikkinen's background has a
Horatio Alger tinge. He won his
numerals as a freshmah, but he
rated as just one of many guards
and his future, to put it mildly,
was a blank. As a sophomore he
saw infrequent action at left
guard, the claim being that he
couldn't move fast enough to fill
the running guard position on the
right side.
* * *
THEN CAME his junior year and
the brazen but admittedly gifted
Hunk Anderson. Back to right guard
went Heikkinen, and no one ever
accused the stock aton of being any-
thing but a gem at moving out of
that line to fulfill his blocking chores.
He played between 50 and 60 minutes
in every game last year-as he has
done this season-and not once was
a timeout called on his account or a
substitution made for him due to in-
jury. He was on his feet-active, ex-
plosive, dynamic-all the time. He won
all-Conference honors last season,
and was selected by his teammates
as the most valuable man on the
I could go on and on telling you
about Hike, and I hope you'll do
a little talking about him on your
own. If enough people take up the
cry, it's going to reach the ears of
those New York moguls. They
must hear about it, for he deserves
the honor beyond a doubt.
Tomorrow Hike plays before his
most discriminating audience - the
Eastern writers. It's reported that
Grantland Rice will be in the stands.
