tackle Jim Piccinini, will be on the

Prep For Irish Aerials
EVANSTON-()-Expressing sat-
isfaction over the excellent physical
condition of his squad, Coach Lynn
Waldorf put his Northwestern foot-
ball players through a long drill on
pass defense Thursday in prepara-
tion for Saturday's game with Notre
Dame at South Bend.

Injury - Riddled Gridmen
Impress Mentors With
Unusual Drive And Pep

All sophomores interested in
trying out for basketball man-
ager should report to Yost Field
House at 3:30 p.m. today. Seven
tryouts have already come out
and six more will be accepted.
-Larry Rinek, Basketball Mgr.





It's an ill wind that's blowing to-
wards the "City of Brotherly Love,'
if yesterday's final touch to the
Wolverine's practicesession is a real
indication of the mood the football
team is in.
For Coach Fritz Crisler added that
psychological touch as a climax to
this week's drills, when he sent his
gridders crashing hard into the tack-
ling dummies with the cry of, "Hit
those Quakers!" And hit them they
did, hard and viciously.
Savilla uimps Dummy
So much pepper did the Michi-
gan football team put into this
closing work-out, that tackle Roland
Savilla tore the dummy loose from
its support with his last tackle of
the afternoon.
Whether this burst of spirit is only
a flicker or the real thing only,
Saturday's contest with Pennsyl-,
vania will tell. Coach Crisler seemed
fairly well pleased with the mental
attitude of the team, and so it may.
be that they have come back.
Injuries Still A Worry
However, Crisler was somewhat
worried about the physical condition
of the Wolverines. Tackle Bill
Smith is not fully recovered from
his leg injury nor is end John Nich-
olson. Also, somewhat hampered
will be fullback Bob Westfall, who
injured his arm, and Rueben Kelto,
reserve tackle, who suffered a slight
face injury.
Still in doubt was the starting
quarterback. Forest Evashevski has
worked out the last two days in con-
tact drills, but Crisler doubts that
he will be fully effective by game
time Saturday. In the event he is
not Bob Ingalls,. who turned in an;
iron-man performance against the
Gophers after being shifted only five
days previous to the game from cen-
ter, will take over.
It's Up To Evie
However, Evie's performances have
been fairly good in practice, and,
indicate that the big quarterback is,
really the one who is going to say
whether he thinks he can play his
best game or not.
Immediately after practice the
team entrained for Philadelphia, and
will hold its final workout on their
opponents' grounds this afternoon.

Pace Is Signed To Defend
Title By Promoter Kearns
DETROIT, Nov. 16.-(P)-Promoter
Jack Kearns announced tonight he
had signed Georgie Pace of Cleveland,
who recently succeeded Sixto Esco-
bar of Puerto Rico as bantamweight
champion, to defend his title against
any of three contenders.
The three, Kearns said, are Lou
Salica of New York, K.O. Morgan of
Detroit, and Tony Olivera of the
West Coast. The bout, Kearns said,
will be staged on or before Jan. 12
in the city which will "Give us the
best offer."

Michigan will travel eastward in
the second football game of the sea-
son next fall, when they invade the
ivy-covered campus of Fair Harvard,
one week after their annual battle
with Michigan State's Spartans. The
Wolverines will not tangle with the
Crimson in 1941 but the following
year, Harvard will travel to Ann Ar-
bor to return the compliment.
Northwestern's Wildcats replace
Iowa on the Wolverines' 1940 sched-
ule. The game will be played in the
Michigan Stadium. Other home
games are with Michigan State, Illi-

Harmon's Hopes Depend
On Last Two Games
NEW YORK, Nov. 16.-()-Tom
garmon's last two games for MiPhi-
gan this season, against Pennsylva-
nia at Philadelphia Saturday and
against Ohio State the following
week, will give the Michigan half-
back a chance to get back in the
running for the Heisman Memorial
Trophy. The trophy is awarded each
December by New York's Downtown
Athletic Club to the oustanding foot-
ball player of the year.
The first 100 ballots that came in
showed four men leading in the race.
They are Harmon, Iowa's Nile Vn-
nck, Paul Christman of Missouri,
and George Cafego, Tennessee's l-
around star.
Kinnick will lead the rejuvenated
Hawkeyes against Minegsota Satur-
day and Christman will be out there

A Winter Preview . .
The absence of Fritz Crisler and
his comeback-bent warriors leaves a
one day lull in the local sports scene
which we'll attempt to break with a
hasty preview of some of the scenes
which will command the headlines

has packed the moleskins in moth-
balls and all that remains of the
grid season is the picking of the
multitudinous all-this and that
His squad weeded down to
workable size, Coach Bennie
Oosterbaan will lead his cagers
out 'on the Field House floor
for the first time this afternoon.
Led by a rejuvenated Jim Rae,
slightly overweight but no longer
troubled with the sacroiliac
ailment which cut down his
effectiveness last season, the
Varsity will rely on a revised
fast break offense to jump
back among the Conference elite
after a dismal seventh place
showing last year.
It will be a veteran team which
takes the floor in the opener against
Michigan State Dec. 9 according to
all indications. From a very medi-
ocre freshman team, only six foot
five inch Bob Fitzgerald appears to
be of any immediate value, and he's
very green, but an unheralded re-
serve named Bill Cartmill, seems to
have found himself after a very
ordinary sophomore year, and should
add scoring punch. A host of grid-
ders will transfer their talents to
the hardwood after the Ohio State
game, but only Tom Harmon and
perhaps Milo Sukup look like first
team timber.
Over at the Coliseum Coach
Eddie Lowrey got his first look
at the 1939 edition of his hockey
team last night, and was immedi-
ately impressed with a giant New
England sophomore, Paul Gold-
smith by name, who is out for
the center position. "He's got
what it takes" says the usually
pessimistic Eddie, who intimated
that he intended to shift scrappy
Awt Stegen from defense to
wing to team with Goldsmith

ing for a third man for his front

to see for themselves next Fri-
day. Matt makes no secret of
the fact that he'll miss Tom

tance and sprint stars of the
past three years, but he still has

Twenty men swung into action last

BotheredBy Injury,


Lloyd Defeats
Fletcher Hall
For Grid Title
Long Dash By Ted Lorg
And Gorsline's Passing
Feature In 6-0 Victory
A 40 yard touchdown jaunt by
Ted Lorig yesterday gave Lloyd House
a 6 to 0 victory over Fletcher Hall
and the championship of the inter-
dormitory touch football league.
Long Run For Score
Lorig's run came early in the sec-
ond half. After Bob Vibbert, Flet-
cher halfback, had punted out of
bounds deep in Lloyd House terri-
tory, Sam Gorsline completed twe
passes which took the ball to the
Fletcher 40. Lorig then broke off
his own, left tackle and outran the
Fletcher secondary for a touchdown.
The first half of the game was
scoreless although Lloyd House drove
to their opponents 1 foot line early
in the game. Fletcher Hall kicked
off and after three plays failed to
gain, Lloyd kicked. Vibbert fumbled
the kick and Dick Kimerer, Lloyd
House center, recovered on the Flet-
cher 20. Gorsline then passed to
Lorg on the seven yard line. Lloyd
drove to the 1 foot line but on
fourth down a pass was knocked
down in the end zone.
Staves Off Threat
After Lorig had scored Fletcher
took the kick-off and, with Walt
Fish and Vibbert carrying the ball,
made two first downs to bring the
ball to mid-field. Then Vibbert
threw a pass to Gordon Andrews,
Fletcher quarterback, on the Lloyd
22. The drive bogged down here
and after Lloyd House took the ball
on downs Gorsline punted out of.
danger. Vibbert completed a pass
to Joe Proctor but his next toss
was intercepted by Lorig. The game
ended two plays later.
Gorsline and Lorig led the Lloyd
offense, while Ted Albrecht, guard,
Fred Spaulding, and Joe Lazerwitz,
ends, starred in the line. Don Jones,
Fletcher Hall center, played a fine
game backing up the line, while Vib-
bert, Fish, and Proctor led their,
