Back, At Work Again


Iowa Star Lost
For Remainder
Of Grid Season

Length Of Back's Absence
From Lineup Uncertain;
Kuhn, Wistert Practice
John Nicholson left the hospital
yesterday afternoon, and will report
at Ferry Field today. If Nick's feel-
ings and playing are up to par, the
possibility is strong that when the
whistle blows starting the Iowa game
on Saturday, the big junior will be
at his usual end position.
T"ogether with Nicholson's possible
return came the doctor's report that
Paul Kromer, brilliant junior tail-
back, is still in the hospital, his in-
jury is still uncertain, and the length
of his stay continues to be in doubt,
though he will positively not play
against the Hawkeyes.
Reserves Scrinmage Frosh
Although he kept his first-string-
ers from any heavy scrimmaging,
Coach Fritz Crisler sent his reserves
through a strenuous offensive ses-
sion against the freshman team, and
the spirit and drive of the varsity
men left the yearlings a badly bat-
tered crew. e
"While the reserves were scrimmag-
ing, the varsity lined up against an-
other frosh team, and Bill Smith"
Freddie Trosko, and Tom Harmon
practiced their kicking. Trosko'&
eligibility is still undetermined, and.
the veteran back will not know whe-
ther he can play until after he takes
an examination on Thurstay.
Kuhn, Wistert Return
Dennis Kuhn and Al Witert scrim-
maged with the reserves today and
both will be ready to go on Saturday,k
.Horace Tinker was also in uniform,t
but will not be ready to go before
next week. Forest Evashevski ran
around in a sweat shirt as he gave his
bruised bo4 another day of rest.
before gettmn back into action.
"Iowa's big! You have to followC
through!" yelled Line Coach Munnk
as he sent his men through an ex-
tensive session of charging, with par-'
ticular emphasis on rushing passers
in preparation for the Hawkeye aerial
game which has the triple-threat
Nile Kinniclk as its spearhead. Mean-
While, the backfield men practiced
defense against Iowa passes, with
Trosko, Dave Strong and the in-
jured Bill Luther taking turns at
playing Kinnick.
Iowa Uncertain Quantity'
Crisler left no doubt as to the seri-
ousness with which he is taking the
game as he drove his squad through
an hour of drill on both new and old
plays. "Iowa is in the same position
we were last year," said Crisler, "and
with the combination of spirit and
a new coach, nobody can be sure what
they'll do."
After today's extensive offensive
drill, tomorrow will bring defensive
practice against Iowa offense as seen
' by Wally .Weber's 'freshmen. The
program for- the rest of the week
calls for a combination offense-de-
fense drill on Thursday and tapering
off on Friday.

BEFORE bringing down a final curtain on'the baseball season we'd like,
to stick out our necks and nominate: MOST VALUABLE PLAYERS:
Bucky Walters of the Reds . . . because he'll be chosen. Bob Feller of thV
Indians , .the Yanks would be champions without either DiMaggio or
Dickey, the Red Sox got along with Lou Finney in Jimmy Foxx's first base
spot, but where oh where would Cleveland's Redskins be minus the 24
victories contributed by Rapid Robert.
ROOKIE OF THE YEAR: Ted Williams of the Red Sox. . . and watch
those New Yorkers howl. Yes, Williams over Charley Keller with Barney
McCoskey third and the outfielders as a group head and shoulders above
the rest. LUCKIEST PLAYER OF THE SEASON: No, not Bill Werber
who was waived out by the American League by the lowly Athletics and be-
came a very important part in the Reds' pennant drive, nor Oral Hilde-
brand, traded to the Yankees by the Browns, but Frank Scalzi, the young
man who was declared a free agent by Commissioner Landis at the exact
time the New York Giants' infield was demolished by injuries and sus-
pensions. Frank will be back in the minors next season, some ten thousand
dollars ahead for his brief and unimpressive sojourn with the Terrymen.
YEAR'S BIGGEST BUST: Johnny Van der Meer . . . and we don't even
expect an argument.
BASEBALL'S BIGGEST BARGAIN: Steve Sundra of the YankeV
four years ago Sturdy Steve came to New York as sort of a thro*-in
in the Pearson-Allen trade. Perhaps he took a long time in brewing 'but
today he would probably command more on the open market than either
of the others. MOST IMPROVED PLAYER: Roy Weatherly of the In-
dians . . . with the ugly glare of the Minors staring him in the face, he
suddenly came to life and when the finaltallies were in, found himself
leading the Tribe outfielders in batting. BEST MANAGERIAL JOB: Leo
Durocher of the Dodgers . . . and we won't go into details. MOST OVER-
RATED PLAYERS: Frank Crosetti of the Yanks and Harry Craft of the
Reds .., take a gander at the averages. MOST UNDER-RATED PLAYER:
Max West of the Bees . . . watch him next year.

of the season Tuesday, Coach Francis1
Schmidt sending them onto the slip-1
pery turf between showers and drill-
ing them indoors during the rain.

IOWA CITY, Ia., Oct. 10.-(04)-,
Henry Luebcke's Big Ten football
career, dogged three seasons with
hard luck, was - ended permanently
here today when the 260-pound Uni-
versity of Iowa guard underwent a
hernia operation.
Luebcke appeared in fine shape at!
yesterday's practice, but was stricken
during the night.-,
The loss of Luebcke, a senior regu-
lar from Chicago, was a severe blow
to the football hopes of the rejuven-

season. Ac
the other ti

ated Iowa Hawkeyes.
Thrilling victories over Southj
Dakota two weeks ago and Indiana
last Saturady had Iowa fans envi-
sioning a new deal in football.
But yesterday Charles Tollefson,
regular left guard and Luebcke's run-
ning-mate, showed up with a sprained
arch that will keep him out of next
aturday's encounter with Michigan.
Last year he showed up out of
shape and minor injuries kept him
on the bench during most of the sea-
son. His play in the first two games
this year had assured him of a first-
string berth throughout the season.
At the Hawkeye practice tonight
Coach Anderson moved Kenneth Pet-
tit, 195-pound junior, and John Ma-
her, 190-pound sophomore, in from
the ends and begain teaching them{
the guard assignments in an effort
to find a replacement for Luebcke's
spot. .

to be ready for the Ohio State game House, 8-0,
Saturday. Bill De Correvont, who
looked good last week despite the
team's sad showing against Okla-
homa, was running .behind the first TAILC
string line.

Trudging in behind his-weary foot-
ball players the other night, Coachx
Wally Weber took time out to dis-
cuss the freshmen prospects who have
but a scant two weeks of practice
under their belts.
Two full teams which have been.
learning -Iowa plays have been split
from the main squad so Weber has
had no contact with these boys. "Con-
sequently," he pointed out, "I won't
inow how good any of the boys are
until we can compare a horse with
a horse."
Squads Joined Next Week
The entire squad will be reunited
after the Iowa game when the fresh-
men will no longer be needed to
;how the Varsity opposing plays and
for-mations. However, Weber did ven-
ture to discuss a few of the yearlings
he has been working with lately
Pointing to a stocky, besmeared lad
pulling off his equipment, Wally re-'
marked, "He may be a guard." The
boy referred to is Bernard Van Wag-
ener, 195 pound, five foot seven inch
candidate from Jackson. Van Wag-
ener is a transfer student in the En-
gineering school, and played next to
Fred Janke in high school.
Asked what he thought of Wallace
Keating, big, red-headed center, Web-
er admitted he was one of the better
centers out for practice. Others who
are battling for recognition at the
pivot position are Luis Woytek, Bud
Shwayder, and, Berpiie Hendle.
Wise Good Punter
The boy who looks like a potential
college punter is Cliff Wise, the Kiski
graduate. Coach Weber pointed out
ghat Wise hadn't seen much running
ar passing action as yet, but he has
proved his kicking ability during
"There's a. fellow named Bill Windle
who might be a fullback if he had
more speed," volunteered Wally. "And
we have a good guard working with
the Phys Eds in the morning, this,
Lynn Houston." With this the squat
freshman pilot jogged up the steps,
;o get dressed and left us to watch
further developments of his men, the

NAMES not to forget: Reuben
Kelto and Joe Rogers. You'll
be hearing plenty about these two
juniors who came from nowhere
to play integral roles in the State
rout. A 195 pounder, whose sole
claim to fame as a sophomore was
the fact that he came from Ralph
Heikkinen's home town, Kelto was
hidden in the tackle maze last fall
which included Janke, Siegel,
Smith, and'- Savilla above others.
He was shifted over to center in
time to travel the circuit as a non-
playing third stringer, came back
this fall to be tried at guard, and
finally was returned to his first
love, tackle. Now try and get him
out of there!
Big, blond, quiet Joe Rogers made
his Michigan debut as a Junior
Varsity end on the last of the Kip-
ke teams two years ago. - He did
little to distinguish himself and
there were few tears shed when he
decided to spend the next year at
home. But Joe's back in the fold
nowAand he couldn't have picked a
more opportune time to return.
With Nicholson a doubtful starter
Saturday, big Joe may earn a regu-
lar job in his second Varsity game.

ler's able second string center,
will have some explaining to .do on
this one. It happened at the Michi-
gan State bradeast from the
Union steps Friday night, and Tin-
ker, out of action due to a disloca-
ted elbow was the only gridder hon-
ored with a spot on the program.
Tink graciously answered the ques-
tions directed at him, then stepped
aside to allow one of the two femi-
nine participants on the program
to speak her bit. One of the ques-
tions directed at the lass, as is al- .
ways the case when woman in-
trudes on a football program was
"Who do you think is the most
handsome man on the football
"Oh," replied the young lady,
who will remain unidentified, "I
can't mention any names because
he's standing too near me." And
since the rest of the team were at
the time several miles away at
Barton Hills, Tink who besides
ranking directly behind Archie Ko-
dros as a pivot man, also follows
the captain as the squad's arch
misogynist, may be still blushing.

CORNERSTONES: Remember all that rejoicing in Ann Arbor when it
was announced that Iowa would replace Northwestern on the 1939
schedule. After last week's games what do you think? . . . That "unidenti-
fied youngster" whose picture appeared in Sunday's Detroit News as Gov-
ernor Dickinson's football informer was Bill Luther, injured Varsity half-
back .. . In Ray Murphy, Iowa fullback, the Wolverines will face the
only bespectacled player in big time football . . . Murphy wears a special
mask to protect his glasses . . . The Kiski influence is beginning to work
both ways niow . . . Golf Coach Ray Courtright sent his quarterbacking,
wrestling, golfing son Bill to the Pennsylvania institution for a year of
seasoning before enrolling here . . . Harry Caswell, Ann Arbor. High
football and baseball star accompanied Bill there and rumors have it
that among their teammates will be three ex-scholastic stars from Detroit
Latest Kiski alumni to put in an appearance here are Cliff Wise, a1
triple threat halfback, and George Hildebrandt, a tackle . . . That frown
on baseball Coach Ray Fisher's face, may be traced to the failure of Ray's
two prize freshman prospects of last year, pitcher Steve Vukas, and out-
fielder Jim Reed, to return to school . ..-

IOWA CITY, Oct. 10.-(P)-"Triple
threat" doesn't go far enough for en-
thusiastic Iowa football fans in de-
scribing the exploits of Nile Kinnick,
Hawkeye senior halfback whose play
is leading the Tallcorn State Univer-
sity out of the gridiron wilderness.
(Iowa invades Ann Arbor to play
Michigan next Saturday). -
They want a team that also will
take in those seven straight drop-
kicks the stocky senior sent through
the uprights for extra points in
Iowa's triumphs over South Dakota
aand Indiana.
He came down to earth a bit on
this extra point business in the
Hoosier game, missing the last three
tries. His seven-straight performance
is a modern Iowa football record,
however, in part because the Hawk-
eyes haven't been in the habit lately
of making the touchdowns that must
precede the extra-point trials.
As a dropkicker, the Iowa fire-
brand is just a cub. He took up the
booting specialty as a serious propo-
sition last spring under the direction
of backfield coach Frank Carideo,'
who is still as good a kicker as he was
in his playing days at Notre Dame.
Kinnick averaged 8.5 yards from
sciimmage in the two games this
tyear, he tossed five touchdown passes
and his punts have soared high and
far. Capt. Erwin Prasse, an end,
caught three of his aerials for scores
in the Indiana game.
Nile is the team's leading scorer
with 31 points and his gains, 223
yards in 27 trials, come within 25
yards of equalling the achievements
of the other 12 Iowa backs combined.
All freshmen interested in box-
in a report to the boxing room in
