Punter Needed
As State Preps
For Wayne Tilt

Stiff Scrimmages On Tap
To Find A New Kicker;
Injury Benches Kinek
EAST LANSING, Sept. 18.-(P)-
Michigan State College's football
Spartans resumed a three-a-day
practice schedule today, with the re-
turn of seasonable weather, and
Coach Charley Bachman renewed the
hunt for a punter.
Scrimmages, scheduled for later in
the week, will determine who will take
over the kicking department, All-
American halfback Johnny Pingell's
old assignment.
Jerry Drake remains thestand-
out candidate for the punting bur-
den. Eddie Pearce, Wyman Davis,
Duane Crosthwaite, Stan McRae and
others also have been receiving at-
Veterans of last year's squad will
make their bids this week for places
of the starting lineup against Wayne
University Sept. 30. Sophomore com-
petition for many of the berths is
keen, with one of the sturdiest crowds
of second-year men in years out for
the Varsity team.-
Pre-season drills languished dur-
ing unseasonably warm weather last
Week. Bachman resorted to night
practice sessions in an effort to round
his team out on schedule.
The injury jinx caught up with
Bachman's charges in today's scrim-
maging, the stiffest of the season. The
casualty was Mike Kinek, senior end
noted for his blocking ability. Train-
ers said the extent of Kinek's injury,
which affected a knee, was not known
but predicted he would be out of the
game several weeks.
Past or Clis
He'll Win T itle
BRIGHTON, Sept. 18.-(P)-Forty
miles out of Detroit, in a lively lake-
bound setting, Bob Pastor is putting1
the finishing touches to the biggest
gamble since they put dots on little
ivory cubes and called them dice.
For two years he has been gamb-
ling for his return match with Joe
Louis, which comes off Wednesday
night in Detroit's Briggs Stadium
with the heavyweight championship
of the world at stake. For two years
he has loudly proclaimed that in his
first "bicycle battle" against the
Brown Bomber, the 10-round de-
cision against him wasn't any one-
sided verdict.
He has had 25 fights since that
time, each one a gamble,.for in each
case he tangled with a good, tough
opponent right in that opponent's
home town. He dropped only one
verdict, a close one to Gus Doraizio
in Philadelphia.
And now, Bob has come down to
the last week, still tossing the dice.
He hasn't boxed a lick since last
Thursday, an .almost unheard of
thing in a heavyweight's preparation.
He weighed about 187 at that time
and decided to gamble the possible
loss of his sharpness against main-
taining that weight. He is confident
the risk paid dividends.
He has been in training eight long
weeks, here and at Saratoga Springs,
N.Y.,,and he boxed 150 rounds with
sparring partners.
"The work was worth it, though,"

Elmer Gedeon
Plays Outfield
For Senator
Former Wolverine Stars
In Field, Is. Fanned
At The Plate
A diving catch which drew super-
latives from the attendant sports
writers marked the debut of Michi-
gan's six-letter man Elmer Gedeon
into major. league baseball.
Gedeon made his initial appear-
ance in the seventh inning in right
field for the Washington Senators
yesterday in their game with the De-
troit Tigers.
The Wolverine three-sport man got
his big chance when Gehringer hit a
line drive which was marked for: ex-
tra bases. Elmer, a two-time Big Ten
outdoor hurdle-champ, sprinted to-
ward the foul line, and throwing him-
self at, the ball, speared it and slid
five feet across the grass on his shoul-
ders to make the catch.
Three called strikes marred the ex-
Wolverine star's only time at bat.
Gedeon won two letters in track,
baseball and football. He signed with
the Senators this spring after grad-
uating from Michigan. The Wash-
ington club failed to file his contract
with the league officials before the
June deadline, and the Wolverine
star was declared a free agent by
Judge Landis.
He again signed with the Wash-
ington club and was sent to Orlando
in the Florida league where he bat-
[ted close to .300 clip, which earned
him his recall to the majors.
Cards Split With Giants
ST. LOUIS, Sept. 18.-()-After
absorbing a 7-2 shellacking in the
opening game, the Cardinals bounced
back off the floor in the nightcap
to rout the New York Giants, 15-5,
with a, 22-hit; attack, and remain
three and a half games behind the
pace-setting Cincinnati Reds.
