Irish-Navy, O.S.U.-Minnesota
Tilts Hold Saturday's Spotlight

Tune up the instruments and pre-
pare the stage for football is about to
turn up the curtain on the third act'
of this year's outstanding production,
"The Parade of Upsets."
So far during the present series the
action has been collosal. Not even
Shakespeare has given us drama like
this during the first two scenes. Just
imagine, in two weeks of action we
have already witnessed such main
characters as Minnesota, and North-,
western massacred on the field of
Two Games Stand Out
This week the headliners include
Notre Dame, Navy, Minnesota and
Ohio State. The Irish will battle the
Midshipmen before a capacity crowd
of 80,000 at Cleveland's huge muni-

eipal Stadium, while the Gophers
take on the Buckeyes in one of the key
matches in this year's Big Ten cam-
Notre Dame, one of the nation's
strongest outfits and victor in three
straight encounters by the margin of
a field goal, will be favored to sink
the Navy Saturday, but the Gopher-
Buckeye fray is anybody's ball game.
Ohio is undefeated up to date, while
Minnesota has been beaten and tied
by Nebraska and Purdue respectively
after swamping Arizona.
Wildcats Face Wisconsin
Northwestern's disappointing Wild-
cats will perform this week against
Wisconsin after "getting the gong"
in their last two appearances as co-
stars wtih Oklahoma and Ohio State.
Other Western Conference games
find Illinois facing Indiana .and
Michigan playing the part of Goliath
against Chicago's hapless Maroons.
One of the main battles in the East
this week finds Pittsburgh, the As-
sociated Press writers' choice for
number one team in the nation, fight-
ing out an old city rivalry with Du-
Harvard Vs. Penn
Harvard, with a 61-0 victory over
Chicago under its belt, faces the same
Penn charges that went down against
Yale last week, while the Eli Bulldogs
tackle the Army.

The ever-dangerous M i c h i g a n
weakness against passes bobbed up
again yesterday afternoon when re-

Luther relentlessly riddled the Var-
sity secondary with a variety of well-
thrown tosses as the Wolverines en-
gaged in theirthird practice session
preparatory to the Chicago game
Blocking was also below par, as was
Tom Harmon's passing in a 45-minute

Weber Fears Illinois--
"We'd better watch out for the Dutchman two weeks from Saturday,"
came forth oracularly from Walter Weber.
Watch out for Zuppke? Nonsense. What for? lie hasn't got a
thing at Illinois but' an instinct for murals. It'll be another push- '
over for the Wolverines.
"Don't kid yourselves about the Dutchman's. club. They've got some
stuff," replied Weber. "That 26-0 beating they absorbed from South n
California carne as much from the heat as it did from the Trojans. It
was only 6-0 at the half and that touchdown came when some. of the
second stringers were in. By the time the second half came around, there
were a bunch of dead Indians on the field. Was it hot? Was it hot? Why,
it was atrocious!- 95 degrees and those kids from the mid-West were ex-
hausted. And Zuppke didn't even know aioout it. They're just kids and
they wanted to show what they had even though they were out on their
feet. Finally, the referee had to tell the Dutchman to take 'em out.
"That's the team that Southern Cal beat.. Why their last touch-
down was a gift. Ambrose Schindler just ran up the field and the
Ilni were just too tired to try to tackle him.
"Then too, Illinois was playing without its regular center. Bill Lenich
was hurt while horsing around when the team stopped off at Tucson,
Arizona and they had to start their second string snapper, Ralph Hath-
away. When he moved out they used Pete Kovachic. And their ace full-
back, Cliff Peterson went through the meat-grinder in the first five minutes
and will be out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.
"They've got a sweet kicker in Ralph Ehni and Captain Mel Brewer
is a sweet guard.".

Fletcher Hall
Chi Phi And Psi U Victors
In SpeedballLeague
In the single game played in the
Dormil~iry 'Touch Football League
yesterday Fletcher Fall took its sea-
son's opener from Wenley, 6-0, after
a tough battle.
Chuck Esler blocked a kick which
paved the way for Fletcher's winning
touchdown. Bob Vibbert's passing
and Walt Fish's fine all around play
'for the winners featured this tilt. The
scheduled Winchell-Chicago contest
went to Winchell on a forfeit.
Three games marked the day's play!
in the Interfraternity Speedball
League, with Chi Phi, Kappa Sigma,
and Psi Upsilon coming out on top.
the Chi Phi's shellacked Alpha Kap-
pa Lambda, 10-2, for their second
straight victory. Bill Schust paced
his team to this 'win as he did in
their win over Sigma Alpha Epsilon
last week. Bob Morse gave him good
support. Frank Tyler led the Kappa
Sigs to a 14-10 triumph over Alpha
Tau Omega in a gime which saw Tom
Courtney and Bill Black doing good
work for the losers.
In the remaining tilt in this league
Psi Upsilon downed Phi Kappa Tau,
10-4. The performances of Chuck
Evans and Paul Keller for Psi Upsi-
lcn and Dick Weatherstone for the
losers highlighted this game.

The five man teams of the Resi-
dence Halls started their bowling
tournament last night. The points
earned will be added to the All-
Sports Trophy score.
To add to the interest of the
freshmen, Stanley Waltz, gen-
eral manager of the Union,
has donated a trophy for the
winning house. The contest will
close at the end of nine weeks,
with the teams playing one night
a week.
The Campus Bowling League rolled
into full swing Tuesday night, with
each team already having played six
games. The Kingpins are leading the
pack with six wins and no losses.
Dick Wells of the Lawyers held
the remarkable high single score
of 239. His team however is
caught in a triple tie for fourth.


Wayne Coach Finds.
Long Lost Fullback
DETROIT, Oct. 18.-(AP)-A four-
day search for a "missing" 200-pound
fullback was ended today when
George Schnelker reported for Wayne
University football practice.
Coach Joe Gembis hadn't seen
Schnelker since last Friday so he
started a citywide search for him.
One place he apparently overlooked,
was Schnelker's back yard.
For when Schnelker reported today
he explained that he had been stay-
ing home to rest his injured arm for
the University of Cincinnati game
here Saturday.
Hawkeyes Scrimmage

Regulars Click On Offense
However, when the regulars took
over the ball in a scrimmage against
the reserves, there was no stopping
them. Freddie Trosko, in particular,
was quick to take advantage of the
holes through center, which was the
only place that blocking was effec-
tive, speeding through with terrific
speed and twisting his way for over
20 yards on several occasions.
Harmon handled the ball only a
few times, but clicked twice, once on,

ter and the other time circling left

by Trosko and going 70 yards for a
On defense, the first-string line
savagely hurled back the reserves'
running plays, except on one occa-
sion when Strong broke out over cen-
ter and twisted and turned for 30
yards until big Joe Savilla thundered
up behind him and crashed him to
the turf.
Strong's Passes Click

Well if Illinois got every tough break then the Trojans can't be so hot.
"They're plenty good. They've got a million backs. In fact, they've
got backs in profusion and their opponents in confusion. Schindler is
best with Granny Lansdell, Doyle Nave, Bill Banti, Bob Peoples all ready
to go."
"Are they better than Michigan?
"They're real good."
But are they better than Michigan?
"Yes indeed, they're real good."
Well, then tell us about your trip to the Coast. Was it a good one?
A Thrill-Packed Excursion . .
"It was the most interesting trip I ever took," was the answer. "I got
on the train at 6 p.m. Thursday and I went to bed. I awoke Ftiday
(as is my wont) and read and then Friday night I retired early. I
arrived in Los Angeles Saturday morning at eight. I left the Coast Sun-
day morning, did the same as I had going out there and returned to
Ann Arbor Tuesday night. Very interesting trip."
Was it really hot in California?
"Was it hot?"
That's what we asked you, we informed him.
"Was it hot," he said ignoring us. "I got off the air-conditioned
train and opened my lungs to get some of that good California air and
a furnace blast hit me in the face. I asked a cab driver if it was always
this hot and the fancy little joker told me they were in the middle of
a cold wave."
CORNERSTONES: Varsity end Ed Frutig is working his way through
school selling a nationally advertised brand of shirts, socks, stockings and
underwear . . . Phil Balyeat, 440-yard man, sells suits and coats .
Grantland Rice and John Kieran of the New York Times will be here for the
Yale game . . . "Hurling Hal" Hursh, Indiana's forward passing ace, had
completed 25 out of 44 passes against Nebraska and Iowa for a net of 370
yards . . . He has also averaged 39.5 yards in punting . . . Zuppke, when
asked if Southern Cal's backfield compared to men like Tom Harmon, ,e-
plied, "Harmon? They've got half a dozen Harmons" . Zuppke may
think he's seeing half a dozen Harmons when Michigan meets Illinois.

Strong's passes in particular hit
their targets from the outset. He'
passed to Walt Kitti down the right;
side for 15 yards, then to Larry Wick-
ter in the same place for 12, and
finally hit pay dirt when Wickter
took his bullet toss over center,'
headed for the sidelines and streaked;
30 yards down the field for a score.
The former Illinois star later com-
pleted three more passes for a total
of 45 yards.
Crisler drilled his regulars on sev-
eral new plays which will probably
be put to use when Yale invades the
Stadium a week from Saturday.
Reuben Kelto was used extensively
in tackle Bill Smith's slot, while Fred
Olds also worked out with the regu-
lars at guard relieving Ralph Fritz.
The Wolverine coach indicated that
he may start his first-string line-up
Saturday, with frequent replacements
in order if the boys click from the
start. He will take along Ed Frutig
and Paul Kromer, regular end and
halfback respectively, who were in
sweat suits again, if they are ready.
Defense against Chicago passes will
be stressed today, with a light signal
drill scheduled for Friday.

MADISON-()-Bob Willding and'
Claude York stood out in the back-
field Wednesday as the University of
Wisconsin completed its last heavy
workout before next Saturday's game
against Northwestern. Willding tossed
three touchdown passes, kicked two
goals and performed effectively from
the left half post as a ball carrier.
