Let's take a look at the respective
merits of the nine other contenders
over whom Michigan will attempt to
prevail in the coming Big Ten race..
Of course, there may now be hidden
strenigths and weaknesses'on the vari-
ous teams which will be brought to
the surface after the season begins,
but here is how 'the other nine-tenths'
look now.

In Excellent Shape


Defense Of Big



MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - Another
strong Bierman aggregation with a
fine running and passing attack which
may be slowed down a bit by the ab-
sence, so far, of a smart field general.
The rest of the backfield is tops,
headed by Harold Van Every, triple
threater, and two of the hardest
charging fullbacks in the country-
Larry Buhler and Marty Christian-
sen. The center of the line is strong
with Francis Twedell and Horace Bell
ready to open up gaping holes in the
dpposition's line. 'Bierman will miss
King at end but has . habit of re-
placing lost veterans with budding
stars. The reserves have not come
along as fast as Berman would like,
but after the season gets under way,
the whole quad will be rolling long
at a fast clip. Condition? Excel ent.
So far,' no serious injuries. (Darn it'!)
It looks like the Galloping Gophers
are again the team tp beat.

COLUMBUS, Ohio-Ohio State's
Buckeyes are plenty hot! More razzle-
dazzle this year with a speedier out-
fit. The Bucks lost some good line-
men at all butt the tackle slot, but
last year's reserves and a host of
ambitious sophomores will plug up the
holes with plenty to spare. In the
backfield, there's Mike Kabealo,
Johnny Rabb and some real ball-tot-
irig Sophomores headed by 200 pound
Don Scott, who, experts say, will give
rival teams plenty to think about..
Ohio will be right up there at the

Gymnasts Start
Practice Oct. 3
Team Loses But One Man
From 1937 Squad
The Michigan gymnas;ic exhibition
team begins its practice sessions Mon-1
day, Oct. 3 in preparation for anothert
active year.
All members of last year's team are
returning with the exception of Capt.
Robert Mansfield who graduataed last
June. Added to last season's team of
Joseph Cole, Ray Nogar, William
Parsons, Ted Sweeny; and Ted Eun-
son will be a very promising group
from the freshman sqtuad.
Douglas Lyttle, Richard Holzaepfel,,
George Andrews, George Sanzi, Rus-
sell Steere, Rudolph Van Dyke, John
Merewether, Paul Townsend, Almon
Copley, and Bob Johnson are sophs
who .should push the veterans for
positionsu n thesteam.en
There is no Varsity competition in
gymnastics at the University of
Michigan and the exhibition team is
organized for the purpose of stimulat-
ing and maintaining interest in this
type of activity both on the campus
and throughout the state.,
Last year the team gave more
than 20 performances in various cities
and schools throughout the state of
Michigan and this year performances
are already scheduled in Toledo, Hazel
Park and Lansing.
There has been an increased inter-
est in gymnastics during the past few
years and the quantity and quality
of material is greatly improved over
previous years. All new students who
are interested in this type of work are
requested to see Mr. E. R. Townsley at
Waterman Gymnasium for further
particulars. Announcements regarding
the frosh gym team will be made at a
later date.
and an equally powerful backfield
paced by Howie Weiss, a powerful line
shatterer. The Badgers will improve
as the season progresses, especially on
defense. So rival teams had better
sharpen up their attacks aplenty if
they expect to get by Wisconsin.

CHAMPAIGN, Ill.-The Illini are
much heavier in the line with plenty,
of returning veterans. Weak at ends,
but promising sophomores may work
in nicely. George Rettinger, a triple
threater, ineligible last season, and
fleet Tony Mazeika will lead the Illini,
charge: A dark horse if there ever
was one, Zuppke's squad has its eye'
glued tightly on a first division berth.

LAFAYETTE, Ind.-A young, fast
team drilled to precision. The Boiler-
makers will rely on their running at-
tack since they still lack a passer to
fill Cecil Isbell's shoes. Speedy Lou

When Michigan's Wolverines of
1938 embark for New Haven and en-v
ter the sacred confines of the his-
toric Ivy League it will be for the'
purpose of wiping a 55 year old blotc
off the record. The last time a Michi-#
gan team met Yale was back in 1883l
and the result was a 64 to0 win fore
the Bulldog.I
For Yale to triumph by such a score
in those days was nothing unusual.
On the contrary, it was cause for
celebration when anyone managed
to score on their national cham-
pionship elevens and the lads from
Ann Arbor had just taken up the 3
comparatively new sport.
But now things are different.
Michigan's football history also in-
cludes the records of many jugger-
naut elevens; Wolverine alumni are
scateedover the East, and to them
a victory over the Elis this fall would
be a sweeter morsel even than a Big
Ten title.
Four painted footballs in Yost Field
House speak well for the Wolverines
other Ivy League contacts. They
represent two decisions each over
Harvard and Princeton although in
three of the four battles the margin
of victory was one touchdown or less.
When Michigan nosed out Harvard
All freshmen interested in track
should report to me at Ferry Field
any afternoon-this week.
,Ken Doherty, Coach

in 1929 and 1930 two All-Americans
were pitted against each other in the
persons of Harry Newman and Barry
Wood, pride of the East. In the first
contest, failure to convert after both
touchdowns cost the Big Reds a tie as
Michigan used "old 83" to score twice
and win 14-12. Barry Wood's short
passes in the final minutes had the
fans in a frenzy but the Harvard
drive fell short.
The following year the Wolverines
repeated 6 to 3. Wood's end-zone
pass Popped out of the receivers arms
just as the game ended to save Michi-
I gan from defeat.
Harvard took one game from their
western rivals back in 1914 by a 7-0
score when they managed to stop a
60 yard drife by the hard-plunging
Johnny Maulbetsch, Michigan's great
All-American fullback of that year,
just inches short of the goal line.
A later home-and-home series
with Princeton brought Kipke two
victories in 1931 and '32, 21 to 0 and
14 to 7. Although the first game was
a one-sided affair, it took all the
fight the Varsity could muster to take
the decision in '32 as Fritz Crisler's
Tigers out-rushed their opponents
only to lose as Michigan took ad-
vantage of the breaks.
Unhappily for Eastern prestige,
Yale lost their all-star backfield last
June including the one and only Clint
Frank who was named on practically
every All-American selection. They
are now rated as the underdog
against the rising power of the Wol-
At any rate, the whole country will
Ee watching the game with interest.
Michigan has been waiting 55 years
to get even for that 1883 massacre
and Yost wants a Yale football in
i the Field House trophy case.

Tubbs' system has had a year of trials
and tribulations. This year should see
a marked improvement in execution
now that the players have become
accustomed to the new type of play.
Sophomores will play a big part in a
line which will average over 210

and passer, will endeavor to lead the
Hawkeyes up the ladder, but it ap-
pears they can't go very far.

CHICAGO, Ill.-It looks like the
cellar again for the poor Maroon of
Chicago, with the same cry of 'No
reserves' coming from Clark Shaugh-
nessy. The line is definitely the prob-
lem. First-rate performers are sorely
needed. A veteran backfield led by
Captain Lew Hamity will strive for
an upset like Michigan's 13 to 12 vic-
tory last year threatened to be up un-
til the last five minutes of the game.

Ken Wilcox, playing for Castleton'
High, caught a punt about six yards
back of goal. He raced 105 yards
down field and collapsed half a yard
from the opponents goal line.

EVANSTON, II.-Behind one of
thg" strongest lines in the country,
Lynn Waldorf is trying to replace last
year's aces, Don Heap and Fred Van-
zo. It's an Herculean task, for there
is no one who quite measures up to
Heap's or Vanzo's ability. Nick Con-
teas, Vanzo's understudy at quarter-
back last year, is still unable to en-
gage in heavy contact work due to a
shoulder injury,' but will be quite
sound by the time he and his mates
come to Ann Arbor.' Jack Ryan and
Bernie Jefferson, Negro stalwart, both
dangerous halfbacks, will attempt to
pane Northwestern to the champion-
ship. But there are always Minnesota
and Ohio State. Always!


BLOOMINGTON, Ind.-A well-bal-
aiIced squad with 'no real standouts-
they're all good. T his is Bo 1McMillin's
year to strike for the top. He has his
best squad in years, one well versed
in deception and plenty speedy, es-
pecially in the backfield. Pass defense
is bothering the boys, but the Hoos-
iers' own passes are already clicking,
which is a danger sign for the rest
of the Big Ten.a
