Seven Conference Grid Squads
Make 1939 Debuts Tomorrow

Podunk college, Washaw Teachers,
and the like have had their day.
So far this year they have been in
the headlines as far as collegiate grid-
iron battles are concerned, but start-
ing this weekend most of the nation's
top flight teams roll into action, and
little P.C. and W.T. will once again
settle at the bottom of the tremen-
dous "Saturday's Results" column.
No less than seven of the Western
Conference squads start playing for
keeps this week with the strong Pur-
due eleven, starring in the major roll
by taking on powerful Notre Dame.

Meyer Will Not Play
Football This Season
Jack Meyer, Varsity quarterback
of the Michigan football team, who
had been counted on to alternate'
with Forest Evashevski in the signal-
calling spot, will definitely not play;
during the 1939 season, lie announcedl
last night.
Meyer has been suffering from a
knee injury which he sustained dur-
ing summer vacation, but it was
hoped that he would be in condition
to take his place in the lineup by

Walter Kitti, a junior whom Coach
Fritz Crisler shifted from half to
quarterback this week, may spell the,
difference between a 60-minute fast
moving backfield or a first half fire-
brand and a last half sputter. .
Since it has been learned that last
season's alternate at the signal post,
Jack Meyer, will be lost for the season
because of the failure of his knee,,to
heal, the hunt has been on for a
blocker to replace him. According to
Crisler, "Kitti is coming at quarter-
back and he is a good blocker and1
Those are the two prime requisites'
of a Michigan pilot, and they are the
factors that made Forest Evashevski,
the number one man at this spot, the
Big 'Ten's leading quarterback as a
sophomore last season. If Kitti can
come along fast enough to furnish the
"One Man Gang" relief, Evie will be
able to continue his hard play
throughout four quarters and not
burn himself out in the early stages.
The development of Walt into a
capable replacement for Evashevski
will round out the reserve backfield
problem, since Herc Renda, 'Dave

Fred Trosko willy capably spell Tom

boots to permit the ends to get down
the field to nailthe receiver.
Kromer, Harmon, and Strong
looked good throwing passes in prac-
tice, butreserve end Ed Czak was the
only receiver who hung onto them
consistently. While the squad looked
fairly well on pass offense, it turned
in a poor'job defensively for the
second straight day.

up his crutches yesterday and worked

out in order to stay in condition was
