To Stress Pass Offense For Northwestern Game

To Ends In Practice
When the Wildcats of Northwestern
growl the week before a contest it is
a k own fact that they are out for
mor than favorable results in the
coming weekend game. What could be
done by Waldorf's boys when they
are really playing, was shown by their
win over Minnesota.
Although only a faint cry can be
heard at present, Coach Crisler and
his Wolverine football squad are well
aware that back of Dyche Stadium,
where "Pappy" Waldrf is working
his boys, there is undoubtedly more
pep and drive in the Wildcat squad
now than there was the week before
the Gopher game.
Out Of Race
As far as getting a piece of the Con-
ference Title this year the Wildcats
are out-however when it comes to
deciding who will be up in the pay
off position at the end of the season
the Northwestern squad knows that
they have something to say. It is
known that the Wildcats will use all
the tricks they can think of in order
to keep the Wolverines from sharing
in the championship.-
IKnowing that a victory over both
the Wildcats and Buckeyes is a mighty
tough assignment for any team, es-
pecially when they are on consecutive
weekends Coach Crisler lost no time
in working the squad on an offense!
that will be similaruto Northwestern's.
Several Throwing Passes
Yesterday the air attack received
the most attention. Saving the line
plays for the coming workouts Coach
Crisler had Harmon, Strong, Kromer,
Purucker, and Trosko throwing the
passes. On the receiving end Valek,'
Nicholson, Smick and Frutig were
* trying to grasp a semi-slippery ball.
The final minutes of practice saw
the Wolverines line up in the manner
which they will probably assume at
the start of the game on Saturday.
Harmon, Kromer, Phillips, and. Eva-
shevski will take over the backfield.
Kodros At Center
Archie Kodros was holding down]
the center position, while Nicholson,
and Smick had the ends pretty well,
under control. Seigel and Captain
Janke were doing the tackle duties
and Heikkinen and Brennan filled
the guard posts.
This Saturday's game will be thef
final Conference game for a good
many Wildcats, but there will be three
players who will put out an extra
effort in an attempt to win recogni-
tion in the form of a place on an
All-Conference team.
Veterans To Play
"Big Jeff" Jefferson, Northwest-.
ern's colored star-who comes from
Grand Rapids-would like very much
to make a run against the Wolverines
as he did against Wisconsin. Receiv-..
ing the ball on the kickoff Jefferson
ran 95 yards for a touchdown.
Bob Voights, who for the last three
years has played regular tackle, will
do all he can to make an impression
on the Wolverine fans in i ahanner
similar to that Don Seigel left at
Northwestern last year. Also in the
line will be John Haman whose play
so far this year has caused many
experts to place him on a par with
Michigan's Chuck Barnard.
Northwestern has defeated Minne-
sota. Any team that 'can hand the
strong Gopher team a loss is going to
be a hard outfit to beat. Wisconsin's
victory over the Wildcats cannot be

considered in making any predic-
tions-+-that defeat was caused by a
general letdown of the whole team.
This Saturday there will be no such
relapse by the Wildcat squad.

I To Lead

Northwestern Against


Haney, Browns' New Manager,
Declares He Will Rebuild Team

Cleo Diehl, captain of the Northwestern Wildcats, will attempt to lead
his team to victory this coming Saturday over Coach Fritz Crisler's
Michigan Wolverines. Diehl plays end, and will bear plenty of watching
on pass plays. Although the Wildcats are out of the championship fight
in the Big Ten, Diehl would like nothing better than to bring home to
Evanston a win over the Maize and Blue.

Wrestlers Begin
Daily Workouts Aft
Yost Field House
Michigan's Big Ten Wrestling
champions of the past year have be-
gun to work out daily at Yost Field
House. in order to be in the pink
of condition to defend their laurels
when regular competition gets into
full swing late in November.
Assistant Coach Robertson has
some twenty-five men working out
every afternoon, and he will remain
in charge until Coach Keene is re-
lieved of his football duties in mid-
Among the grapplers out at this
early stage of the season are the
veteran lettermen Captain Harold
Nichols, Don Nichols, Big Ten light-
heavyweight champ, Dick Tash, Jim
Mericka, and Tim Hurd. John Spei-
cher, who copped the conference 118
pound crown last year, will be great-
ly missed, since as yet there have
been no entries for this class.
Coming up from last year's fresh-
man squad and showing potential
varsity ability is a local Ann Arbor
lad, John Paup, a 145 pounder. Other
likely looking prospects working out
at present are Andy Sawyer another
Inn Arbor product in the 135 pound
class, and Ralph Turner in the 155
pound division.

Chi Phis Win
Playoff Game
Pi Laams Outplay Chi Psi
In CloseBattle, 4-2
Chi Phi advanced in the standing
for third place playoffs in the inter-
fraternity speedball league yesterday
by routing Delta Tau Delta 11-6 with
a last quarter scoring splurge. The
game evenly matched for three I
periods found Chi Phi out in front by
a one point margin as the fourth
quarter began.
Pi Lambda Phi also survived the
axe in the third place playoffs by out-
playing and beating Chi Psi 4-2. Get-
ting away to an early lead the Pi I
Lams were overtaken though they
were threatened in the final quarter
The two points tallied by Bert Lefko-
wich and strong defense of goalie
Lorry Greenblatt proved to be the
margin of victory.
