Gedeon Shows
'Old Fox' That
Ray Was Right

It looks very much as though it would be easier for a camel to go
through the eye of a needle than it is for Coach Fritz Crisler to find
adequate replacements for his thin line- And with Michigan as the people's
choice to win the. Big Ten championship, to sa' nothing of the national
title, considerable pressure is piling up on the coaching staff's head.
But through the past two weeks, little has been developed to wend
off the advent of gray hair.
Michigan started its pre-season practices with three lettermen guards,
Ralph Fritz, Milo Sukup and Fred Olds. As this is written, Michigan still
has three guards. Michigan started practice with two letterme tackles,
Bill Smith and Joe Savilla, plus one potentially good reserve, sophomore
George Ostroot. As this is written, Michigan still has its two tackles and
Ostroot has been painfully slow in developing.
And if you want to get nasty, you might mention the quarterback
spot. Once you've managed to get Forest Evashevski out of your mouth,
you've said it all. Not that Evie doesn't cover more ground on defense
and offense than his name does syllables but a big time schedule de-
mands big time shock troops. If Evashevski were hurt, and his block-
ing gone, almost as much of Tom Harmon's and Paul Kromer's natur l
running ability would be wasted as H. G. Wells could include in one book.
In the worst is yet to come column we might have Smith, Fritz and
Evie injured at one and the same time. Gray hairs here we come!!

By GENE GRIBBROEK
Ray Fisher is sporting a big grin
these days. One of his boys is doing
all right, and that always warms
Ray's heart.
The boy, of course, is Elmer Ged-
eon. Elmer learned a lot of baseball
from Coach Fisher, and now he's
cashing in on it. He is now working
for Clark (Old Fox) Griffithe's Wash-
ington Senators. f
Four years ago, when Gedeon first
came to Ann Arbor, hie was "one of
the greenest boys" ever to come out
for the team here at Michigan, ac-
cording to Fisher. Tried first in the
outfield, he was finally placed on
first base. Here he learned fast, and
under the tutelage of the Wolverine
mentor he became a standout both
at the plate and in the field.
There was a fly in Coach Fisher's
ointment, however. In high school,
Elmer had been a track star, and at
Michigan he developed into one of
the best hurdlers in the country. Un-
able to decide whether to concentrate
on the diamond or the cinders, he
stuck to both, running in the hurdle
events whenever possible for Coach
Charlie Hoyt's last two' Conference
ChampIonship track squads, and then
dashing over to the diamond to cover
a lot of "first base for Mr. Fisher.
But when it came to a showdown,
baseball held the edge, and last June,
after graduation, he said goodbye to
the track for good. The heavy-hit-
ting first-sacker signed a contracts
(Continued on Page 15)

Paul Kromer, 160-pound Wol-
verine halfback who accounted for
both Michigan scores in the 14-0
drubbing of Michigan State last
year, will attempt to dent the S par-
tan goal-line once again this year
when Coach Charlie Bachman's
team invades the Stadium Oct. 7.
New Cleat Styled
By Buck Trainer
In an effort to lessen football in-
juries of the wrenched knee and
sprained ankle type, Tucker P. Smith,
Ohio State athletic trainer, has de-
veloped a new style of oblong shoe
cleat which is detachable and self-
locking and is made of composition
instead of being built up of layers of
leather.
"The old style leather oblong cleat,
because it was not detachable was not
very practical, althoug it has always
been the best shaped cleat,'\ Smith
states. The.- new cleat gives better
support in pivoting and, twisting and
should reduce sprained ankles and
trick knees, according to "Tuck."

Complete Wolverine Football Roster

Some people think that football is here when fall is in the air, or
when leaves begin to turn. But to us, football has attained another
year when John R. Tunis declares that college football is professional,,
To some this announcement comes as something less than a bombshell
But the Tunis-fish (in the Aetober issue of the American Mercury)
this year apears to be a little more than the usual sea food. He assigns
the universities to four numerical groups and in "Group One" or ama-
teur group is Chicago. Michigan is assigned to Group, Three, along
with Northwestern, Ohio State, Purdue and Wisconsin of the Big Ten
and Norte Dame, Carnegie Tech, Dartmouth, Detroit, Holy Cross,
Fordha-m, Michigan State, Pittsburgh, Santa Clara, St. Mary's, South-
ern California and others-
We quote from Mr. Tunis' description of Group Three. "Then we
reach the colleges where many squad-members are assisted in one way or
another. Few of those named below actually operate athletic farms, but
if a boy is good football material and not up to the entrance exams, a year
is usually managed for him at some preparatory school like Dean Academy,
Black Foxe, or Kiski." (Kiski is a prep school not a breakfast food.)
Could that crack about Kiski have referred to Michigan? Didn't
Ralph Fritz, Paul Kromer, Jack Meyer, Howie Mehaffey, Harris Roberts
and Bob Ingalls get their preparatory training at that institution?
CORNERSTONES: Preseason plaudits have been coming Michigan's
way in rapid fashion. Tom Harmon was placed on Francis Wallace's firs
team all-American in the Statevepost while Archie Kodros was named
third-string center . . . Football annual says about the Big Ten-"It's
Michigan all the way . . Bill Combs, runner-up at 155 pounds in the
Big Ten meet, may not be back in school . . . Financial reasons, he says
. . . Doc Brogan, sophomore reserve on the basketball team, has trans-
ferred to Michigan State . . His brother, Herb, will remain here
Lynn Riess, senior golfer. may not come back to school . . . When Denny
Kuhn dislocated his elbow in practice, Ed Frutig, his roommate, helped him
to the dressing room . . . Both are from River Rouge . . . When Frutig re-
turned to the scrimmage, End Coach Campbell Dickson kept him out of
the line-up for 15 minutes . . . On the first play, Frutig crashed into the
other defensive end, Harlin "Whitey" Fraumann, azid was knocked un-
conscious and out of practice for two days . . . Dickson said, "I kept himn
out purposely so that the effect of Kuhn's injury would wear off but T
guess Ed was still a little dazed even after 15 minutes" . . While Frutig
was out cold, a small group gathered around himas he lay on his back,.
He woke up, looked around and said, "What the hell are you looking at?
Have you all got tickets?"
