Wolverine Grid Team Meets Harvard At Cambridge



don wirtehafter's

;-. j


ITil The Last White Line Is Crossed . .
BOSTON, MASS., Oct. 11.-Two if by land and one if by sea.
That was the signal here tonight as all of Boston awaited the attack
of a mighty enemy from the Middle :West.- Poor Harvard! Their home-
town followers give them little chance against our Wolverines. People here
are talking about seeing the great Harmon, the vicious Evashevski and the
dynamic Westfall. Most of the 30,000 or more who will crowd into the Har-
vard Stadium tomorrow are coming to see the sights . . . the eleven wonders
of the grjd world. At least that's the way they talk around here.
We heard one ominous remark though that made us think back.
One fellow was telling us about Harlow's ability to inspire a team.
"That guy always has a fighting bunch," he warned. "You never can
tell what they might do."
. Oh, how that reminded us of a visit we paid to Champaign, Ill, last
year. Michigan was the heavy favorites at that time too. They gave us that
same admonition, You know what happened.
While still in that fearful mood, we thought of some other unhtppy
things. Michigan journeyed East two years ago to meet a lowly Yale
squad. The Wolverines were far superior, the experts said. They all
agreed that a three or four touchdown margin was a conservative esti-
mate of what the Wolverines could do to the sons of Eli.
Well, we won . . . sure . . . after a pretty severe afternoon. The mar-
gin .. . three points.
Last year came another Eastern tour. This time a lowly Penn squad
was the opposition. No trouble at all for the Wolverines, the experts pre-
dicted. At least three touchdowns better.
And that was another tough afternoon. The Wolverines won
sure. The margin . . . two points.
But we cast aside all those evil thoughts tonight, boys and girls, and
look for the good side. Take the back injury to Harvarc's prize soph-
omore, Don MeNicol, for example. That indeed is a familiar situation.
Go back two weeks when we were on the West Coast. California was
building a great team around a new sensation, a passing star, a power-
ful runner . . Jim Jurkovich. *Before Michigan arrived, Gentleman Jim
had departed for the hospital.
Just last week in Ann Arbor we heard reports of a hewcomer that was
leading Harvard on to greater things. Name . . Don McNicol. He was a
sophomore sensation. Highly publicized as a freshman after he had scored
three touchdowns .in one of the frosh encounters, Don was heralded this
year as one of the most promising of the Eastern backs. He passed well, ran
hard and was intelligent, as every Hawvawd man should be.
Three days before Michigan arrived here, Darling Don departed from
the Crimson squad with an injured back.;
Now to tie the whole thing up. After Jurk-the-witch was lost to Cal,
Michigan romped, 41-0 . . . After Mc-the-Nick is lost to Harvard, Michigan'
Looking back over the Crimson's flimsy 13-0 victory over Amherst,
figuring that Harmoni will have to look his best against the influential
and critical Eastern journalists, and taking everything else into con-
sideration, we feel that Michigan ought to have things its own way in
the Harvard Stadium tomorrow afternoon.
Playing like they know how to play, the Wolverines should win by at
least three or four touchdowns.'
Paul Chandler, the scratchy city editor who scratches out a scratchy
Scratch Pad day in and out, challenged me to a game predicting tourney
before I left Ann Arbor. We each made 20 selections and here they are.

spinner that the Crimson may at-
tempt. Crisler has worked out a new
defense that his squad will use to-
morrow, a five-man line with the
ends dropping behind for line-back-
ing duties.
With McNichol out, Capt. Joe Gar-
della has chosen to remain out of
the starting line-up. He will act as
a replacement for halfback Charley
In Gardella's absence, 155-pound
Bill Brown will start at fullback.
Spreyer Back At Half
A pair of high school teammates
from New Haven, Conn. will start
for the Crimson at the halfback
posts. Both veterans, Fran Lee will
handle the right side, while Charley
Spreyer, who had been moved down
earlier in the year as a replacement
for McNichol, has been returned to
the left half starting berth.
Harlow, has his charge of blocking
dynamite.tat quarterback in George
Heiden, the 177-pound Milwaukee
lad. Against Amherst last weekend,
the experts here tell us, rugged Hei-
denl practically made every block
right during the afternoon.
In Brown, Lee, Spreyer and Hei-
den, Harlow has a veteran backfield
quartet averaging under 175 pounds.
Michigan, on the other hand, with
Tom Harmon, Capt. Forest Evashev-
ski, Bob Westfall and Davey Nelson
tip the scales at just over 185 pounds
per man.
Miller Wins Berth
Lanky Loren MacKinney, at end,
250-pound Vern: Miller at tackle and
powerful Chub Peabody at the guard
spot combine for Harvard's veteran
and strong left side of the line. De-
spite his bulk,CMiller knows howto
play football. Certainly not the most
graceful man in the Crimson picture,
Harlow kept the husky Milwaukee
lad on the bench when the Amherst
game got under way last week. Pete
Elser held the starting berth. But
when injected into the lineup, Miller
proved that the 10 pounds he took off
this summer enabled him to move
better. Harvard began moving with
the man mountain in the line.
Everyone here is expecting big
things from Peabody this season,
while MacKinney has shown remark-
able improvement, enough in fact
to warrant his mention with the
great ends that Harvard has had in
the past.
The right side of the Harlow line,
however, is green. Joe Koufman, a
lanky 180-pounder, will go in at end.
Starting Monday, October 13,
the Sports Building will be open
Mondays through Fridays until
10:00 p.m.

The Eyes Of The East Are Upon Him

Last June approximately two thou-
sand young men and women stood in
Ferry Field, the scene of their gradu-
ation from the University of Michi-
gan, peered into the future, and
wondered what it held in store for
them. Among these graduates, who
were crystal gazing, were the youths
who had just finished their careers
as Michigan athletic greats. What
are they doing now?
Foremost among these sport-world
stars stood short, barrel-chested
Archie Kodros, captain and fre-
quently mentioned All-American cen-
ter of the Wolverine eleven. Today
Archie is carrying on in the finest
Michigan tradition, for Captain Ko-
dros is now known as Coach Kodros,
and what would be more fitting than
having him begin his coaching duties
at his alma mater? Accordingly
Archie can be seen as assistant to
Clarence Munn, line tutor of the
powerful Wolverines. While thus
working Kodros is also continuing
his studies in the Business Adminis-
tration School.
Jordan Coaches Football
Forrest "Butch" Jordan has also
entered the coaching field. Jordan,
you will remember,, was a consistent
Junior Sports Staff
Picks The Winners.
Of Today's Games
Reviving an old Daily custom, the
six members of the junior sports
staff have decided to try their fine
Italian hands at picking the winners
in this afternoon's major gridiron
contests. Here are the results of
their cogitations. When less than
six choices are shown for any game,
it means that some intrepid soul has
picked a tie.
Michigan (6) over Harvard (0).
Michigan State (4) over Purdue (2)
Dartmouth (4) over Columbia (2).
Wake Forest (5) over Clemson (1).
Tulane (5) over Fordham (1).
Notre Dame (3) over Ga. Tech (2).
Holy Cross (4) over Carnegie Tech
Southern Cal (4) over Illinois (2).
Nebraska (4) over Indiana (2).
Iowa (5) over Wisconsin (1).
L.S.U. (6) over Rice (0).
Mississippi (6) over Georgia (0).
Princeton (6) over Navy (0).
Missouri (5) over Kansas State (1).
Syracuse (5) over N.Y.U. (1).
Texas Christian (4) over North

Boston College (6) over George-
town (0).

performer on the grid squad as well
as being captain of the wrestling
team. Today "Butch" is serving as
football coach at Wakefield High
School in Wakefield, Ill.
Hercules Renda, last 'year's back
on the grid squad, is also pur-
suing his work in Business Admin-
istration and serving as assistant to
Earl Martineau, Wolverine backfield
coach. Others who have decided to
continue their education in grad
school are Horace Tinker, understudy
for Kodros, who is studying law,
Dave Strong, reserve halfback, who
is working for his masters de-
gree in physical education as
is Charlie Pink, captain of the base-
ball team and star guard on the bas-
ketball quintet, and Dye Hogan, star
Wolverine half-miler and president
of the "M" Club, who is racing to-
ward his bar exams.
Rae Studying Medicine
Jim Rae, center and captain of the
Michigan basketball aggregation, can
daily be seen trudging to and fro
from his classes in the School of
Ralph Schwarzkopf, generally
acclaimed to be one of the best two
milers in the country and conqueror
of Taisto Maki, has returned to make
up credits which he lost due to his
long illness last spring.
Big Roland Savilla is coaching at
Charleston, W.Va., Fred Olds is a re-
search engineer for Proctor and
Gamble,soapmanufacturers, John
Nicholson, sensational end, is em-
ployed as division manager by the
Bell Telephone Co., and Fred Trosko,
hero of last year's sensational Ohio
State football game, has taken up
his duties as coach, of the Hudson
High School football team in Hud-
Harland Danner, Big Ten wrest-
ling champ, has probably traveled
more than any of the others. He is
employed as a teacher in Puerto Rico.
That's what they're doing now and
it seems that the future dealt very
nicely with those graduating Michi-
gan athletes.

Jimmy Easterbrook, 153-pound

tively, was expected to spark Illi-

One of the features of the most
intensive program of instruction in
the Intramural Department's his-
history to be started next week will
be the classes in badminton to be
conducted by Pick* Levy. The meet-
ings, to be held every Tuesday and
Thursday from 3:15 to 5:15 in the
auxiliary gyrm, will have the benefit

of pointers from one of the best
players ever to hit the campus.
Levy comes from a family which
has gained wide renown in the East,
where the game has a large follow-
ing, by capturing a lion's share of
the titles in its section. The Dela-
ware state crown has been in the
family for a number of years.
