Tilt Shapes Up As Prospective Aerial Battle

(This is the first in a series of arti-
cles designed to give the reader any
insight into the finer points of foot-
ball and how to watch the game. The
first article deals with the line on
offense. )
Most of the success of any team
depends on the strength of its line.
On defense the line furnishes a brunt
of the attack. On direct line plays
these seven men will be found open-
ing up a hole to allow the ball carrier
and his interference to pass through.
Watch how the running guard pulls
out to precede the interference in
order to block out one of the line-
backers. See the men work together
while carrying out their blocking as-
signments and then go on to aid the
ball carrier with down field blocking.
Watch the center pull out and crack
down an unsuspecting tackle. Watch
the ends dash into the open field and
try to out-maneuver the opposing
backs so that they can receive a pass.
Follow the end as he pulls around
to receive the ball on the deceptive
end-around play.
Find the ends and tackles on a
punt as they race to down the re-
ceiver while the guards and center
protect the punter at the center of
the line.
Yes, take your eyes off the ball and
see who really makes most of the
Kappa Sigma Triumphs
Over Chi Phi Team, 11-10
In the feature of the two-game fra-
ternityspeedball card at Ferry Field
yesterday Kappa Sigma nosed out
Chi Phi, 11-10. Kappa Sigma had to
stave off a late Chi Phi bid to win.
Fred Tyler was the pacemaker for
the winners with five points, while
Bob Antle counted four points for
the losers.
The other contest saw Phi Delta
Theta take the decision in a low score
game, 1-0, over Sigma Alpha Mu.
The only score of the tilt came
in the second period, when Jack Mey-
er made good on a penalty kick.

Midwestern football followers are
looking forward with interest to the
prospect of an aerial battle at the
Michigan Stadium next Saturday.
And a very likely possibility it is too.
Press advances on the game have
been toying with the prospect of one
of the great ball-carrying duels of,
the year but*there is a very definite
possibility that both teams may have
to take to the air in an attempt to
While it is true that Michigan and
Pennsylvania boast two of the finest
running backs in the country in Tom
Harmon and Francis Reagan, it is
also true that these lads are not
averse to heaving the apple now and
then. Another fact that is perhaps
less well known to the fans is that
this game will bring together two
of the most powerful lines in the
country. Should these two strong
forward walls play each other to a
standstill, the double aerial attack
will become more than a possibility.
Crisler vetoed the idea of scrim-
mages emphatically during yester-
day's . practice session. "We can't
afford the possibility of injuries."
"They were sharp for the Illinois
game," he said, "but we'll just have
to take a chance that their blocking
and tackling will be right for Penn
without a real scrimmage.''
The only disheartening feature of
the day's workout was a slight shoul-
der bruise suffered by Reuben Kelto,
Varsity right tackle, due to a faulty
pad. This is not expectedsto hinder
him in Saturday's contest. Harry
Anderson, reserve guard, also added
his name to the injured list, coming
down with a bad ankle injury.

Aiming.For Quakers

don wirtehafter's

One of Michigan's sophomore stars, who promises to develop into a
football great is Harold "Tippy" Lockard, from Canton, Ohio. A hard
plunging back and a bulwark on defense, he was recently shifted to the
right halfback position, where he should fit well into Coach Crisler's
weak side plays. Lockard's ability to play either fullback or halfback
greatly adds to the Michigan backfield reserve strength.

Phi Gamma Delta and Delta Kappa

night, with the Phi Gams looking es-

season's fight for the title won last
year by Sigma Nu.
The Phi Gams won both their
games, beating Alpha Delta Phi, 15-7,
15-17, 15-9, and shutting out Sigma
Phi, 15-7, 15-13. The Dekes also took
both games, winning over Sigma Phi,
15-8, 15-10, and defeating the Alpha
Delts 15-5, and 15-9.

A Wolverine student, Sam Russell

"On Guard! Advance! Lunge! Re-1
tire!" Those are the words used by
Ray Chambers and Johnny Dreher
as they put their fencing class
through their exercises at the Sports
Building three times a week.
This hard working group of 30
men, some from the Scimitar Club
and some just fencing enthusiasts,
work out two hours each meeting to
improve their fencing knowledge and
to acquaint themselves better with
the different types of weapons used
in this sport.
It is the firm belief of both Cham-
bers and Dreher, the former having
three years experience and the lat-
ter two years, that fencing can best
be improved by practice, and to put
this to test one hour each meeting
is devoted to reviewing old material
and acquiring new and the last hour
is spent in practicing.
The squad works out with three
different weapons, starting with the
foil. The beginners work out for
the first semester with this weapon
only and gradually work up to the
others. Ladder tournaments and
meets are held for both the experi-
enced andinexperienced men, while
the Scimitar Club members usually
hold an annual match among them-
selves. Usually the group sponsors

Gridiron Scouts Are Responsible
For Much Of Wolverines'Success

B the Fihest Makers
50 to
j3Ipt Jrtt

The success of Michigan's maraud-
ing football forces this year has been
laid to various people: Tom Har-
mon, Bob Westfall, Capt. Evashevski,
and Fritz Crisler. Now, all these
men have had their fingers in the
victory pie, that is true, but let us
now pay homage to those forgotten
men of the gridiron world, who make
no headlines, who receive no glory-
the football scouts.
These boys spend their big game
Saturdays in our opponents' stadi-
ums. With a pair of high powered
field glasses glued to their optics and
a feverishly working pencil in hand
they proceed to diagram such things
as our future opponents' defensive
and offensive formations and the
weaknesses and strong points of each.
They also make a minute study of
our enemies' personnel, taking note

of ages, weights, heights, home towns,
and, of course, abilities. On the
train en route to Ann Arbor they as-

of reconnaisance men in the country.
Wally Weber, "the eternal Fresh-
man," has scouted Illinois for nigh
these eleven years. His reporting of
the ever changing plans of Bob Zupp-
ke is a tough job well-handled.
Bennie Oosterbaan, possessing one
of the best football heads of them
all, has been "smelling out" both
Minnesota and Ohio State for almost
a decade.
Ernie McCoy made his debut in the
scouting racket with a capable job
on Harvard. The Crimson's loop-
ing line tactics were easily solved by
Michigan's line as it followed Ernie's
instructions. Result: victory for the
Maize and Blue.
At the present time wrestling coach
Cliff Keen is letting the squad in on
Pennsylvania's stuff, having scouted
the Quakers in their lop-sided vic-
tories over Yale and Princeton. Cliff
brings news that Penn has ten of the
starting regulars back from last year,
and that Francis Xavier Reagan is
still the hip-swiveling, bullet-pass-
ing phenom that gave the Wolver-
inesmay an anxious moment last
Hereafter, football fans, when
handing out victory bouquets, please
do not forget the unsung heroes, the
football scouts.
