Crisler Displeased*...
FdRITZ wCISLER wore a grim Mon-
day look at yesterday's practice.
It presaged a very rough week for
your varsity football team with plenty
of raw noses and a thorough grind-
stone rub.
There is little elation among the
Michigan coaching clique today over
Saturday's Yale victory. Crisler and
Co. prefer decisive triumphs, and1
the Eli win was anything but that.
Crisler is not a little irked over the
Wolverine performance at New Ha-
ven, and he made no bones about it
"There was nothing swell about
that victory," he commented
sharply as a bunch of the Field
House gang tendered their con-
gratulations. "We looked pretty
bad at times."
He had a minute to spare, and I had
a couple of hours. It seemed a likely
time to pose some questions.
1. How about our leaky pass de-
"First," he replied, "you must
give\Hiumphreys a world of credit.
He's a great passer, and he was
especially good Saturday."

Amid Flying Footballs And Mud
Intra-Union Feud Flares Anew

Sian Kelley Hurdles Rival:
Players And Puddles For
Last Minute Scores
Flash!BThe Union Cafeteria boys,
football rivals, the Union Waiters,
eight strong, in a driving rain and a
sea of mud.
This was the second meeting of the
two "star-studded" clubs this sea-
son, the Waiters having routed the
Caf Boys, 38-6, the Sunday before.
It took plenty of courage for these
14 hardy men to get themselves up at
eight o'clock of a Sunday morning
with the rain beating down in all its
fury. As to the missing members of
each team-well, you know, it was the
"morning after the night before."
Both clubs are eager to renew rela-
tions next Sunday, each claiming,
"If it hadn't been for the mud, we'd
have slaughtered 'em!"
Nichols Swims To Score
As to the game itself, it looked as
though the waiters' superior manpow-
er would decide the battle, for they
waded into an early 12 to 0 lead. Ned1

faded back andtthrew a long pass,
1 mud and all, to Don Nichols, of
wrestling fame, who swam 50 yards
to a score to send the Waiters into
a 6 to 0 lead.
A few minutes later, after the Wait-
ers had brought the ball deep into the
Cafs' territory, Bill Coombs, another
wrestler, shot a pass to Harold Nich-
ols, Don's brother in the grunt-and-
groan sport, who caught the ball in
the end zone for the waiters' second
Not To Be Denied
But the Caf boys were not to be de-
nied. With their backs to the wall,
rain beating in their faces, and a
slippery turf beneath their feet, they
fought to tie the scorer
Bill Watson versatile track star,
heaved a long pass to Star Kelley,
who does plenty of hurdling for
Charlie Hoyt, and Kelley galloped to f
a touchdown, showering mud in the
faces of his desperate pursuers.
Then, when it appeared that the
Waiters had the game in the pockets
of their pure white jackets, the fleet
Kelley intercepted a Waiters' pass
deep in his own territory,. dodged
several opponents and a hosts of pud-)
dles, and raced almost the entire
length of the field to give his mates
a well-earned tie.
The lineup for the Cafeteria boys
was Sid Wiener, Larry Tutak, "Al Pet-
erson, Bill Watson, Stan Kelley and1
Herb Pendall. The Union waiters
who managed to make the nine
o'clock call were Don Nichols, Paul

Defense, Sets
Team Passing'
Luther's Aerials Hit Mark
As Wolverines Sharpen
Offense For Illinois
Pass defense-Michigan's glaring
weakness, increasingly apparent with
each contest, was not the practice
menu for yesterday.
'In fact, Coach Fritz Crisler did not
spend a single minute of the after-
noon working to correct what every-
body but- said Mr- Crisler claims to
be wrong with the 1938 edition of
Wolverine gridders.
Luther Hits Mark
In fact, Mr. Crisler did just the'
opposite. He sent his charges through
an extended offensive passing drill
with Tom Harmon, Dave Strong, Fred
Trosko and Bill Luther on the thrdw-
ing end. Of the group, Luther, the
sophomore back hailing from Toledo,
was by far the most accurate heaver.
Time and again, his bullet passes hit
their mark, a la Newman, Baugh and
Surprise number two of the work-
out was a punting exhibition by one
never thought of as a kicker. Vince
Valek, the junior end who has shown
up so well this year that against Yale
he played the full sixty minutes, was
the booter.
No Serious Injuries
With the reserve line attempting to
break through the second string var-
sity and block the kicks, Valek shot
long looping spirals some 50 and 60
yards down the field. During the half
hour or so which he practiced, the
Holly, Mich., lad had but one or two
under that distance. A slight tail
wind was an advantage but even so
the exhibition was a pleasant sight to
the coaches.
Coach Crisler watched a signal drill
by his first and second elevens, with
no change in the lineup that started
against the inspired Eli last Satur-
day and then sent them in.
The squad came out of the Yale
contest without a serious injury re-
sulting.*The usual cuts and bruises
were evident but everyone except Joe
Savilla, the burly tackle, is in good
shape. Savilla put in an appearance,
but his right foot was in a cast neces-
sitating travel by bicycle.
Galento To Meet Thomas
Promoter Herman Taylor announced
tonight he had signed "'Two-Ton"
Tony Galento, of Orange, N. J., lead-
ing contender for the heavyweight
title, to a 12-round bout with Harry
Thomas, of Chicago,'here on Nov. 14.

Compile .714 Mark
The Junior Staff made a stirring
comeback after last week's rather
miserable showing and compiled the
magnificent average of .714 in pick-
ing Saturday's winners. .
The grand old man of the East,
Mel Fineberg, paced this week's selec-
tors with his .750 average, picking 21
of the 28 games up for consideration.
Herb Lev and Tom Phares were dead-
locked for second, each one gdme away
from Expert Fineberg.
The Princeton-Navy and Baylor-
Texas A. & M. ties caused even the
most careful calculations to go astray
and there were several other upsets
which even Eddie Dooley and John
Kieran failed to foresee, all 'of which
served to hold the general average

3. They seemed to lose their cocki-
ness in the/ second half. Is that a
permanent loss?
"I should believe so. It took 13
points to wake them up. We are
forgetting Minnesota, and every-
thing else that has passed. We
are thinking of Illinois this week
-no one else"
4. Did the intensity with which Yale
scouted Michigan hurt? (Six scouts
at Minnesota, four at Chicago andone
at Michigan State).
"No. We knew dust as much
about their plays as they did
about our's. The trick is in know-
ing what's coming next."
5. What about Saturday? Did you
ever hear of an Illinois team that was
a soft touch?.
"I never did. I don't think there
has ever been one. The team we
meet Saturday definitely is not."
6. Any special commendations for
Saturday performances?
"Heikkinen and Janke. Both
played great games."
