he'll start Jim Smith at halfback in-
stead of Purvis.
Illinois Captai Will Play
Illinois has been heartened by the
return of Capt. Mel Brewer, 202
pounds of potential all-conference
guard. Brewer, called home sudden-
ly Wednesday by the death of his
step-mother in Carbondale, will be
back in the line-up today.
Much of the Illini hope lies in
Michigan's being troubled by the
defensive Muddle the home team will
use and. the',fact that they often go
into a five, six or seven man line
after Michigan comes out of its
huddle. When they shift into a five
nian line, Brewer moves back into
the defensive position in front of the
offensive center.
As an interesting sidelight on the
Grange-Harmon feud one of today's
officials will. be James Masker who
worked the 1924 rout when the Ghost

CHAMPAIGN, Ill.---Even a raucous
and gay Homecoming in this most
collegiate of college towns can't stop
the ineluctable onslaught of time and
the Corner's Saturday morning foot-
ball predictions. Even in Champaign
a tossed coin still falls either heads
or tails. As long as Newton's discov-
ery holds we'll be able to foretell the
winners. So out with the nickel,
a flick of the thumb and we find:

now he'll be celebrating an Illini vic-
tory. Once again for Michigan it'll
be Tom Harmon running and pass-
ing up and down the field. Twenty-
one points for the Hoosier Hammer,
27 for the. Wolverines and a big
round zero for the hosts. It may not
Abe fun for Illinois but at least it'll
be educational.
Minnesota-Northwestern: After en-
joying the newspaper championship
for four weeks but finally making
the astounding discovery that the
only clippings allowed on the field
-are the kind penalized 15 yards by1
the officials, the Wildcats are abouta
ready to snap out of it. Their dream
backfield and durable line should
begin to click. Minnesota.
Purdue-Iowa.: After Iowa beat S.
Dakota, 41-0, in its first game of the
year, scout Campbell Dickson an-
nounced that the Hawkeyes would win
two Big Ten games in their first
year under Dr. Eddie Anderson.
They've already whipped Indiana and
Wisconsin but they won't start mak-
ing a liar out of Dickson on this
one. Purdue.

The ultimate owner of one of the,
most famous trophies on campus-
the Union cafeteria workers' coffee
mug--will be decided next Sunday
morning when the two rival touch
football teams of the Union workers
will meet to do battle.
The cherished coffee mug is now
in the hands of the dining room
waiters, who took it after their victory
over Captain Kesel's "celler rats."
This victory has evened the series
and Sunday's game will determine
the eventual owner of the trophy.

called him that for the first time last
Friday. It'll serve them right when
Ohio State beats them. They ought
to recognize a good thing when they
see it. Well, maybe they'll recognize
Buckeye merit today.
Notre Dame-Army: War is hell,
Sherman once remarked, sotto voce,
to his conscience and it's the soldiers
who get the free passage on the ferry
across the River Styx. The United
States Military Academy will get their
ticket this afternoon when the Irish
hand it to them.
Tennessee-Louisiana State: In this
year of topsy-turviness the experts
have been taking it on the chin. Well,
for that matter so have we. But
ever since every newshawk has been
calling Tennessee the best profes-
sional team in the country we've felt
that right is might. "Simon-pure"
L.S.U. gets the nod but only because
we're sleepy.
Southern California-Oregon State:
The two undefeated teams on the
Coast hook up in a battle of titans.
But the Trojans have too many backs
and too much power in the line. This
will be the Northerners first licking
of the year.
Rice-Fordham: Eshmont, Blumen-
stock, Principe, Fortunato. Singing
their praises heavily, not legatto. Rice
may have Ernie Lain and Ollie Cord-
ill, but we have our roommate's bed-
time prayer. No buts from the Ram,
it'll win.
In the rest of the top games we'll
take Villanova over Detroit, Syra-
cuse over Michigan State, Cornell
over Columbia, Dartmouth over Yale,
Penn over Navy, Duquesne over Mar-
quette, Alabama over Kentucky, Duke
over Georgia Tech, U.C.L.A. over
California, Princeton over Harvard
and moon over Miami.
Spartans Seeking
FirstMajor Win
SYRACUSE, Nov. 3.-(P)-Michi-
gan State and Syracuse, teams which
have found the going very, very rough
this fall, clash in an intersectional
football battle in Archbold Stadium
tomorrow afternoon.
The Spartans arrived in Syracuse
this morning and held a short work-
out. A cold, clear day has been fore-
cast and Syracuse officials expect a
crowd of approximately 17,000 to be
on hand for the kickoff at 2 p.m.
(EST).
It is the sixth meeting between the
schools and there have been no indi-
cations that the contract that ex-
pires tomorrow will be renewed. State
has won three and lost two so far
against the Orange.
had scored its touchdown, Coach Cris-
ler sent into the game almost an en-
tire reserve team.
Howie (Two Plays) Kaye, star Eli
place kicker, booted a long kick-off
which Norm took and returned deep
into the territory of the Blues. The
game 'ended before the reserves had
time to score or Norm might have ex-
perienced the thrill of scoring his
first college touchdown against Yale,
still the greatest name in football
history.
Today the Wolverines are in Cham-
paign to meet a supposedly weak Il-
linois squad. Call undoubtedly will
be on the sidelines when the game
starts but if Michigan piles up a lead
and Crisler gets a chance to use his
second team, watch Big Norm Call.
He's a real ball-carrier!

Big Bill Smith, senior tackle, may
be called upon to do the varsity's
punting against the Illini at Cham-
paign this afternoon, with Paul
Kromer out of the lineup. Smith
is the team's longest kicker, but
usually remains in the line unless
a long boot is really needed.
Doctors Amputate
Leg Of Princeton
Star, Don Herring
PRINCETON, N. J., Nov. 3.--(A)-
The athletic career of Donald G.
(Hooker) Herring, six - foot - five
Princeton University football player'
and discus ace, ended today with am-
putation of his left leg above the
kneecap as.the. result of an injury
received in last Saturday's game
against Brown University. h h
Told of the surgery- three hours
before" it began, the 21-year-old
junior had a "perfectly grand atti-
tude." said Dr. Robert W. Johnson,'
Jr., of Johns Hopkins University,
Baltimore. The surgeon said Herr-
ing's condition was "as satisfactory
as could be expected."
'Thegeneral reaction of the stu-
dent body, over which 'a cloud of
gloom had hijng all day, was one of
relief that the operation had been
successful. The football squad, told
at lunch of the amputation, remained
tight-lipped and wentabout its pre-
parations for tomorrow's game
against Harvard.
Wildcats To Face
Minnesota Today
MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 3.-(RP)-

By GENE GRIBBROCK
Five independent touch football
teams and nine fraternity speedball
entries will start their annual dog-
fight for the crowns in both. sports
next week. Interest has been added
to the football competition this year
by the addition of the interdormitory
leagues, and nine four-team leagues,
the largest turnout in the sport's his-
tory here at Michigan, will send
their best into the interfraternity
speedball playoffs.
Those who know .predict a final in
the grid playoffs between Fletcher
Hall and the Hillbilly A.C. Fletcher
Hall, with such boys as Chuck Esler,
brilliant defensive star, Bob Vibbert,
who leads their aerial attack, Walt
Fish, and Arnold Larsen, have built
up one of the most powerful teams'
ever to compete here. The Hillbillies,
runners-up last year -to the Has-
Beens, are just as strong this season.
The starring role for the hamburger
boys has been taken by Harold Nich-
ols,
Lloyd Dorm In Finals
Lloyd House is the only represen-
tative of the new dormitories to reach
the first-place finals, but its entry is
figured as an important threat to
the favorites, Lilburn Ochs and Joe
McCreary have been the standouts
during the regular schedule and with
the help of Frank McCabe, Edwin
Lorig, and Dick Kim erer, among
others, they'll take a lot of beating
before they're counted out. They
meet the Hillbilly A.C. Tuesday in
their opener.
The Hiawatha Club-Robert Owen
tilt Monday will see the remaining
two finalists starting of f the battle
for the football crown. Although
rated as underdogsrright now, these
teams were good enough to win their
league titles, and- can't be disregard-
ed. The winners of 'this contest will
have a chance to show just howgood
they really are when they neet Flet-
cher Hall in the semi-finals.
Speedball Title A- Toss-up
A real free-for-all battle will take
place before anybody tucks away the
speedball crown. The large turnout
this year has produced exceptionally
strong teams. Sigma Chi, last year's
winners, came up with another strong
entry,, and at this stage they look
to be the standouts in the upper
bracket. Al Kelso, kicking sensa-
tion, and Jack Cooper are two of the
boys that make Sigma Chi favorites
to repeat.
The chief threats to Sigma Chi's
supremacy seem to be two teams
from the lower bracket, ,Phi Beta
1.

Delta and Phi Kappa Psi. Phi Beta
Delta is depending on Martin Rud-
man, Bob Lewin, and Art Weiss to
lead them toy, the title, while Phi
Kappa Psi's hopes will rest chiefly
on Dick Bennett, who has been their
big gun throughout the season. I
Chi .Phi Threatens
Sigma Chi's worries are not limited
to their two co-favorites, however.
Bill Schust and his Chi Phi mates
may kill their hopes early if they
lick them in the playoff opener on
Monday. Phi Kappa Psi meets a
tough one Monday, also, in Phi Sigma
Delta. The Phi Sigs have a big
threat in Mel Moss. The other tilt
Monday will find the third favorites,
Phi Beta Delta, facing the Psi U's,
led by Chuck Evans, and Paul, Keller.
Phi Delta Theta, who will meet
the winner of the Sigma Chi-Chi Phi
tilt, and Kappa Nu take two of the
remaining three spots in the tourna-
ment. Acacia and Sigma Phi Epsi-
lon will battle for the ninth place
Tuesday afternoon.
Turkish Soccer Team
Routs Chinese, 6 To 0t
The Turkish soccer team of the
International routed a Chinese soc-
cer team,: 6-F, in a Intramural con-
test yesterday. Captain Yalter was
the spearhead of the Turkish attack,
while Ying Chang was outstanding
for the Chinese.
Another International Center soc-
cer game will take ]place 4 p.m. Nov.
8, when the International ,team will
meet the Chinese squad.

Norm Call Stars In Relief Role;
Young Back Is Potential Great

I

By ART HILL
As the crowd was leaving the
Michigan Stadium after watching
Fritz Crisler's fast-travelling Wolver-
ines completely outclass Yale 27-7, a
dejected Eli rooter was heard to com-
plain, "What right have these guys
got to be playing Ivy League teams?
Not only is that first string back-
field terrific but they are plenty deep
in replacements. That kid, Call
would be a star if he weren't out-
shone by Harmon~ and Kromer."
By casually dropping this remark,
the disappointed Bulldog partisan ex-
pressed what has been in the minds of
many Ann Arbor observers for a long
time.
Call, whose first name is Norman.
U U

is a personable, good-looking sopho-
more halfback who
. who stands about
6 ft. 1 in. in height.
He has seen service
in every game this
year but naturally
. has been forced to
spend more time
. on the bench than
She has on the play-
ing field, due to the
presence on the
squad of Harmon,
Call Kromer et al.
Shifted To Halfback
Norm's home is in Norwalk, Ohio
which he insists is a great little town
even if most of the people there are
Ohio State fans. In high school, he;
played quarterback but inasmuch as
Coach Fritz Crisler believes in having
a blocking back in the signal-calling
position, he has been shifted to the
halfback spot on the Michigan squad.
Call did a lot of passing for his high
school squad but this particular talent
hasn't been given much attention at
Michigan due to the preponderance of
passers already listed on the Wolver-
me squad.
Norm is a versatile lad, proof of this
lying in the fact that, in addition to
football, he also played basketball
and tennis in high school not to men-
tion being a mainstay on the track
team.

Northwestern University's Wildcats,
professing to have their claws clipped
somewhat by loss of a star tacle,
rolled into town today for a Big Ten
encounter with Minnesota's Golden
Gophers Saturday.
Coach Lynn Waldorf said Alfi Bau-
man, star sophomore tackle, was left
at home because of an infection. He
added that he was expecting his team
to play the same sort of inspired ball
it always does against. Minnesota.
Gray To Coach Pitt
PITTSBURGH, Nov. 3.--(P)-Ben
Grady, former all-American diver
and swimming star' at the University
of Michigan, will coach Pitt's swim-
ming team this coming season, the
department of athletics announced
today.
