flinois' Varsity Stops Michigan
Plays In Tag Scrimmage Drill

CHAMPAIGN -(A)- Illinois first
stringers, back to heavy football
workouts after two days of light ex-
ercises, stopped freshmen using
Michigan plays in an hour long tag
scrimmage Wednesday.
Capt. Mel Brewer, a guard, left
for Carbondale, Ill., after receiving
wordl that his stepmother had died.
Coaches said he would return for
Saturday's game here, but expressed
doubt that he would see much action.
COLUMBUS. -(A')-- Ohio State's
Buckeye gridders turned in a prac-
tice performance Wednesday that
might have been entitled, "You don't
need a defense if your offense is
strong enough." And Coach Francis
Schmidt's boys spent the afternoon
reeling off scoring plays that left ob-
servers expecting a "shoot the works"
game against Indiana here Satur-
IOWA CITY-(P)-The University
of Iowa football team got its fiirst
workout against Purdue plays Wed-
nesday as Coach Eddie Anderson sent
his first and second teams against
resrve's using combinations the
Eoilermakers are expected to try in
the game at Lafayette Saturday.
CHICAGO -(- Chicago's Ma-
roons drilled long on pass defense

Wednesday after a report from scout
Ewald Nyquist that the University
of Virginia would present one of the
best passing teams Chicago has met
this season.
EVANSTON. -(P- Ollie (Red)
Hahnenstein, Northwestern's ace left
halfback, donned full uniform Wed-
nesday and coaches indicated he
would see considerable service at
Minnesota. Saturday. Hahnenstein
has been sidelined with an injury
since the Wisconsin game. The Wild-
cats worked on defense against Go-
pher running plays.
MADISON.-()-The University of
Wisconsin's second team showed dis-
appointing form in a scrimmage
Wednesday with the freshman foot-
ball team. The gridders lacked class
in handling the ball and missed
assignments frequently.
MINNEAPOLIS -(')-- Switching
from defense to offense, Coach Ber-
nie Bierman concentrated Wednes-
day on tuning up Minnesota's at-
tack for Saturday's game with North=
western here. John Bartlet contin-
ued in the quarterback role in the
practice sessions, and the rest of the
positions were unchanged.
BLOOMINGTON. - (I)- Indiana
University's freshman and reserves
used Ohio State plays against the
varsity football team Wednesday
with too much success to suit Coach
Bo McMillin. The Hoosiers will prac-
'tice Friday morning in the Ohio State
stadium for Saturday's game with
the Buckeyes.
LAFAYETTE.--(P)--Purdue's foot-
ball squad held its last contact prat-
tice of the week Wednesday, Coach
Mal Elward announced. He couldn't
afford to take chances on more in-
juries before Saturday's .homecoming
game with Iowa. Jack Krause and
Bill Combs worked at the right end

"I believe he really found himself
last Saturday," says Clarence Munn,
Coach Fritz Crisler's genial, heavy
set developer of outstanding linemen.
"And from here on in, that boy
ought to do great things at his guard
Munn was talking about that stocky
little .Kiski product from New Ken-
sington, Pa., Ralph
"Tugboat" Fritz,
whose sharp, telling
blocks in the Yale
game helped to rip
open the Eli for-
'xward wall for the

non- to knife
through for gain
after gain.
Ralph Fritz After three games.
in which he himself admits that he
failed to show the calibre of play of
which he is capable, the "Tugboat"
came through Saturday 'with. the

most improved exhibition which any
member of the Michigan squad has
made over previous encounters. "It
was about time, too," says Ralph; who
is now eagerly looking forward to
the coming games, especially that "re-
venge" tussle with Minnesota.
Sharp Improvement In Blocking
In the opinion of Line Coach Munn,
Fritz showed particular improvement
in his blocking, both at 'the line
of scrimmage and downfield Per-
haps this was due to the fact that
"Tugboat" takes a greater delight in
blocking than in tackling, contrary
to the attitude of the average line-
man. "Most linemen would rather
tackle than throw a block, probably
because tackling is easier and more
natural," says Munn.
'But not Fritz.n"I get far more
pleasure from executing a good block
than from making half a dozen
tackles," he says. "It's a harder job,
true, but when you rock a tackler
off his feet, you know you've done
something which has called for plenty
of practice. And it's worth it to
me." .
Helped In Stopping Wildcats
The greatest work turned in by the
Michigan line last year, that of hurl-
ing back the Northwestern onslaugh%
seven times within the six-yard line
and four times after the Wildcats
had reached the two-yard marker,
found Fritz at the bottom of every
pile-up. Ralph had replaced' Bren-
nan a few minutes earlier and his
quick charge was instrumental in
stopping Lynn Waldorf's ball carriers
almost before they had started.
