Reserves Unable To Gain
Using Penn Plays; First
Team Weak On Offense
Pennsylvania and Frank Reagan
invaded Ferry Field yesterday in the
form of the Reds and Bill Luther and
found the forward wall of the Wol-
verine first team inpenetrable.
The Reserves, under the tutelage of
Assistant Coach Ray Courtright who
scouted Penn, used Quaker plays and
were unable to gain from tackle to
tackle. Once in the afternoon they
circled John Nicholson's end but on
other attempted end runs, both Nich-
olson and Ed Frutig piled up the in-
terference and occasionally made the
Kodros in Uniform
When the varsity took the offen-
sive, however, they also took on a re-
versal of form. Except for an occa-
sional off-tackle smash by Norm
Purucker, the only ground play that
picked up any yardage was the often-
used delayed buck through the center
with both Paul Kromer and "Jeep",
Mehaffey gaining from five to ten'
yards a try.
According to Fritz Crisler, "there
is only one chance in ten that Archie
Kodros will start at center this Sat-
urday." He scouted the idea that
Tinker's weight (173 pounds) would
be any handicap to him. "It isn't
how heavy they are that matters,"
he continued; "it's how hard they hit
Archie was in uniform but didn't
participate at all.
Fritz Gets Attention
Joe Savilla, varsity tackle who has
been out of the line-up since Minne-
sota with an injured foot, was at
practice but in street clothes and
riding a bicycle.
Vince Valek, with an injured leg,
and Ralph Heikkinen with a bruised
ankle, both were in uniform but
stayed away on contact work.
Another lineman who received
plenty of attention was Ralph Fritz,
the sophomore guard, who Coach
Crisler plans to give as much experi-
ence as possible. Fritz is showing
great progress and with both first
string guards graduating this year
Crisler wants to give their successors
all the experience he can.
Another encouraging feature of
yesterday's drill was the knack
Strong, Purucker, Kromer, and Har-
mon had for receiving punts and run-
ning them back for sizeable gains.
Strong and Purucker turned in sev-
eral touchdowns while in the role of
j safety man.
Fred Buesser has lost his dog. It is
a whiskey brown and white springer
spaniel puppy, six months old, an-
swering to "Winky." He lost it near
the law quad and would appreciate
its return. Contact him at Phi Delta

HAT'S THE GIST of Canning's
story and I wish he could tell it
to you as he did to me. It would
really convince you.
Canning and Co. have done a lot
for Michigan this year. It was under
their direction that the great recep-
tions before and after the; Minnesota
game last month were held at the
station - receptions which Crisler
