Blues Whip Favored Reds, 7-6,
In Freshman Intra-Squad Game

Miller Tallies Touchdown
And Boots Extra Point
For Victorious Eleven
Coming from behind in the dying
minutes of the fourth quarter, a
fighting Blue team pushed over a
touchdown and successfully convert-
ed to whip their favored rivals, the
Red shirts, 7-6, in the annual fresh-
man intra-squad, game yesterday at
Ferry Field.
The two evenly matched elevens
battled back and forth throughout
the entire game following the Reds'
touchdown made early in the game.
Bernard Van Wagnen, rotund guard,
crashed through to block Art Greig's
punt early in the second quarter
and the alert Rudy Smeica fell on
the bouncing ball orer the goal line
to put the Reds in front. Rudy Sen-
gel's attempted placekick was blocked.
by a horde ,of Blue linemen.
Hall Recovers Red Fumble
It wasn't until late in the closing
period that the Blues got their oreak.
Clarence Hall, end, pounced on a
Red fumble and then the scrappy
blueshirts started moving. Fred
Dawley, hard running halfback from
Detroit, sparked the drive with a first
down on the Red 22. Elmer Madar
gained 5 yards around left end, and
on the next play Dawley tore around
the opposite flank behind some superb
blocking to the Red two yard line.
Earl Miller took the pass from cen-
ter and plunged over guard for the
tying touchdown. With victory or
merely a tie depending on the con-
version, quarterback Harold Lock-
hart sent Miller back to attempt the
placekick. The hard hitting fullback
cooly booted the ball squarely be-
tween, the uprights to put the under-
dog Blue team in front with five
minutes of play left.
Wise Stars For Losers
Following the kickoff, Cliff Wise,
outstanding back of the game, was
forced to punt after two of his bullet
passes fell incomplete. The Blue
squad, deep in their own territory,
tried two line plays and were thwart-
ed by a fast charging Red line. Lock-
hart's punt was almost .blocked, but
he got it away in time to pull his
team out of a hole.
Then the Reds started a counter-
attack, reminiscent of Ohio State's
dying gesture in last Saturday's

game. Wise, on the first play, sped
around end for a first down on the
Blue 35 yard line. After Bill Windle's
buck at center, Wise dropped back
and whipped a perfect strike to Rudy
Smejca on the 17. Two line plays
gained nothing, and when Otto Cha-
dy, alert end, intercepted Paul So-
bonya's short toss, the doom of the
Red team was sealed.
Punters Stage Duel
The first quarter turned out to be
a punting duel between Wise and
Greig with Madar of the Blue team;
turning in some fine running. Bill
Windle, Red fullback, stole the spot-
light in the second quarter with re-
peated long gains from spinners
through the center of the line.
The play of the tacoies yesterday
was the outstanding feature of the
battle of lines. Big Rudy Sengel and
Pete Gritis were making it plenty
tough for the Blue backs, and Jerry
St. Clair and Bill Steele invaded the
Red backfield enough to make friends
with the Red-men..
Glenn Ireland, playing guard for
the winners and Chady at end, were
the stars on defense all afternoon.
Louis Woytek, backing up the line,
and Bob Kresja, calling signals for
the Blues, also stood out.

Bobby Riggs
To Play Here
In Exhibition
Leading Net Star Will Face
Detroiter On I-M Court;
No ChargeTo Public
Bobby Riggs, star Davis Cup play-
er for the past two years and present
holder of both the Wimbledon and
American Nationals singles crowns,
will appear on the Intramural Build-
ing indoors tonight at 8 p.m. in an
exhibition match arranged by Leroy
Weir, Michigan's Varsity tennis
coach. Admission will be free.
Faces Detroit Pro
Riggs will face Tobey Hansen, a
professional well-known in Detroit
circles, in the feature match of the
evening. If time permits, there will
be a doubles exhibition with two of
Michigan's Varsity participating.
Capt. Sam Durst will team with Riggs
while Jim Tobin, the Wolvernies'
number one player, will pair up with
Hansen is little known nationally,
but among tennis players he is highly
rated. During the summer, he is the
professional at the Homestead Coun-
try Club in Hot Springs, Va., while
in the winter he acts as pro at the
exclusive Tennis House at Grosse
Point, Mich.
Little Difficulty
Famous for his in-and-out per-
formances, Riggs himself probably
isn't quite sure what kind of tennis
he will play tonight. If he's "on,"
Bobby should have little difficulty
with Hansen.
A salesman when not pre-occu-
pied with tournament play, Riggs is
at present visiting friends in De-
troit, and when contacted by Coach
Weir, graciously accepted the invi-
tation to come to Ann Arbor and
give Michigan students an oppor-
tunity to-see tennis at its best.
Temporary bleachers have been
erected surrounding one of the in-
door courts at the I-M,

Harmon Wins
Berth On A-P
Big Ten Squad
CHICAGO, Nov. 27. -()- Nile
Clark Kinnick, Jr., superb triple- I
threat back and spark of the Iowa I
eleven, was the Western Confer-
ence's outstanding individual player
of the season and you have the Big
Ten coaches' word for it.
Of the five players making thet
All-Star team a year ago who were'
still in competition, only two re-
peated on the first team. ErwinE
Prasse, Iowa end, was picked for'
an end spot and Tommy Harmon,
Michigan ace, for the halfback oppo-
site Kinnick.
F o r e s t Evashevski, Michigan's
blocking back who was hampered by
injuries, dropped to the second team,
and John Murray, Wisconsin center,
and Lou Brock, Purdue back, the
other two all-stars of 1938, were
given honorable mention.
In the backfield with Kinnick and'
Harmon the coaches placed Don
Scott, Ohio State's big quarterback,
and George Paskvan, Wisconsin's
pile-driving fullback.
Esco Sarkkinen, versatile Ohio
State end, won the other flank post.
The tackle spots went to Win Ped-
ersen, Minnesota stalwart, and JimI
Reeder of Illinois. The coaches
named Hal Method of Northwestern
and Vic Marino of Ohio State at
John Haman of Northwestern, sec-
ond team center a year ago, was
promoted to the first team for his
consistently brilliant work.
The second team is composed of
Dave Rankin, Purdue, and John Mar-
iucci, Minnesota, ends; Mike Enich,
Iowa, and Nick Cutlich, Northwes-
tern, tackles; Mel Brewer, Illinois
and James Logan, Indiana, guards;
Steve Andrako, Ohio State, center;
Evashevski, quarterback; Jim Lang-
hurst, Ohio State, fullback, and Har-
old Van Every, Minnesota, Jim
Strausbaugh, Ohio State, and George
Franck, Minnesota, halfbacks. This
trio tied for the two second team
halfback spots.
Michigan players receiving hon-
orable mention on the AP Big Ten
squad were: end Ed Frutig, tackle Joe
Savilla, guard Ralph Fritz, Captain'
and center Archie Kodros, and full-
back Bob Westfall.

Bowman Calls
Code Success.


Suffers Worst Season
In Last 16 Years

PITTSBURGH, Nov. 27. -(WP)-
Pitt's football team came through its
first year under the so-called "Ama-
teur Code" with its worst record in
16 years and a loss at the gate but
Chancellor John G. Bowman today
termed the season a success. II
The slim, scholarly school head,
father of the Code and center of the
athletic controversy at Pitt that cul-
minated in Jock Sutherland's resig-
nation as coach last winter, ac-
claimed the team spirit and predicted
Pitt would make "a good record be-
fore long."
"The big thing was that the boys
themselves had a good time this
year," he said. "There was a lot
more freedom in play evident on the
field. They were playing football
more for the fun of the game--that's
what college football is supposed to
