Varsity SquadScrimmages Against Minnesota Form


Reserve Team
Runs Through
Gopher Plays
Crisler Keeps Evashevski
From All Contact Work;
Kolesar Replaces Sukup
Coach Fritz Crisler's Wolverines
scrimmaged against Minnesota for-
mations for two long hours yesterday
in preparation for their duel with the
Golden Gophers at Minneapolis Sat-
The Suicide Squad second string-
ers were loaded with Minnesota plays
and formations, and Crisler gave his
Varsity a look-see at the variety of
stuff Bernie Bierman will undoubted-
ly throw at them.
Frank Day, speedy Detroit soph-
omore, played the role of the villain,
George Franck. Last season Franck,
178-pound Gopher halfback, got
away against Michigan for runs of
59 and 31 yards, and today's session
was held for the simple reason that
Coach Crisler doesn't want a dupli-
cation of last fall's debacle.
Emphasizing their own ground at-
tack, the Wolverines also devoted
some time to polishing the offense
which has rolled over five foes for
1,346 yards.
Capt. Forest Evashevski stayed out
of all contact work and sophomore
Bob Kolesar replaced guard Milo
Sukup, who is hospitalized becausel
of recurrent headaches.
Crisler indicated that Davie Nel-
son would start at the wingback slot
Saturday. He also said that he will
name his traveling squad tomorrow
after Sukup's fate is definitely de-
termined. The team will leave after
practice on Thursday and will work
out at St. Paul on Friday. The 100-
piece Wolverine band will leave on

Greenberg Wins Award; Managerial Race Intensifies

These Gopher


Menace Wolverines' Title hopes

Bob Feller Is Second To Hank;




Indian Pilot Job Is Wide Open'


CHICAGO, Nov. 5.-1P)-Big Hen-
ry Greenberg, Detroit outfielder and
home run specialist, is the American
League's "most valuable player" for
the second time in six years.
After seven years at first base for
the Tigers, Greenberg moved to the
outfield "for the good of the team"
and experienced one of his brightest
seasons, leading the league in home
runs and runs batted in. He received
the award first in 1935.
A 24-man committee, represent-
ing the Baseball Writers Association
of America, gave the 29-year old
Greenberg 292 points in the annual
poll for the award.
Bob Feller, Cleveland's young pit-
cher, trailed the Tiger star with 222
Greenberg, who knocked 41 homers
and drove in 150 runs, received 16
first place votes out of a possible 24.
seven for second place and one for
sixth. Feller was given six first-
place votes for his brilliant record
of 27 victories, and Detroit's Buck
Newsom and Cleveland's Lou Bou-
dreau split the other two.
Joe DiMaggio, New York star who
led the circuit in batting for the
second straight season, fell to third
place in the voting after winning the
award in 1939. DiMaggio received 151
points, followed by Newsom with 120'
and Boudreau with 119. Jimmy
Foxx, Boston first baseman and cat-
cher and three time winner of the
"most valuable" designation, drew 110
Schoolboy Rowe, of Detroit, rated
seventh with 62 points, followed by
his teammate, Rudy York, 61; Rip
Radcliff, St. Louis; and Luke App-
ling, Chicago, 54.

CLEVELAND. Nov. 5. -(R' The
Cleveland Indians' managerial derby,
picking up more entries at every
turn, headed into the home stretch
today as President Alva Bradley de-
clared he would name a 1941 pilot
next Tuesday.
"I am working on the matter now
and expect to have it virtually cleared
up by the weekend," Bradley said.
The club president added that
Mickey Cochrane, former Detroit man
ager and reported one of the lead-
ing candidates, was "not being con-
sidered." Cochrane was the second
possibility eliminated within a day,
Manager Bucky Harris having signed
a new contract with Washington.
The moves left only two men in
the field with whom Bradley has ad-
mitted conferring-former manager
Roger Peckinpaugh and Coach Luke
Peckinpaugh, a Clevelander who is
connected with the American League
in a promotional capacity, piloted the
Indians five full seasons starting in
1928. He was discharged and re-
placed by Walter Johnson in the
middle of his sixth year.
Sewell, erstwhile Cleveland catcher
who lives in nearby Akron, has had
no managerial experience.
Rogers Hornsby was being men-
tioned frequently. Even Babe Ruth
was on mythical lists compiled by
writers and fans.

Chicago House
Defeats Adams
To Gain Finals
Chicago House came from behind
to take the feature game on the In-
tramural card yesterday, beating Ad-
ams -House, 8-6. Carl McNicholas
scored the winning marker to put his
team into the finals of the first-place
playoffs in Residence Hall League
1 with Lloyd House.
Williams House lost a tough game
to Allen-Rumsey after outplaying
their opponents most of the way when
John Webb scored in the closing min-
tues to give his mates a 6-0 victory.
The win sent Allen-Rumsey into the
second-place finals in League 2 with
Michigan House.
In the first round of the Inter-
fraternity second-place playoffs Chi
Psi defeated Alpha Tau Omega, 7-1,
with Roger Kelley topping the scorers
with three points, and Chi Phi took
a 10-1 decision over Phi Beta Delta.
Zeta Beta Tau moved into the second
round of the third-place playoffs,
licking Lambda Chi Alpha 6-4.
Two of the three spots in the In-
dependent touch football division's
first-place playoffs were decided over
the weekend. Robert Owen House
downed the Wolverines, 6-0, to take
the "A" League crown, and the C.
and C. Packers trounced the Newman
Club, 8-0, to top the "C" League,

One of the outstanding backfield performers in the nation, Minnesota's George Franck will cause Mich-'
igan plenty of trouble at Minneapolis Saturday. Franck's amazing speed and superlative shiftiness make him
a constant touchdown threat from any part of the gr idiron.
Complementing Franck even as Westfall does Ha rmon, rugged Bill Daley is a hard-charging sophomore
fullback who picks up plenty of yardage on his line s mashes.
Co-Captain Bill Johnson, senior flankman, is one o f the big reasons for the success of the fine forward wall
the Gophers have developed this year.

bert Orin Crisler. Fritz coached at
Minnesota for two years, 1930 and
1931. During that period his teams
met Michigan twice and lost on both
occasions, 7-6 and 6-0. Up till now
he has been at Michigan for two
years. Twice his squads -faced Min-
nesota and were defeated both times,
7-6 and 20-7.
Let us take up the case of back-
field coach Martineau next. "Marty"
was an all-American at the Gopher
bailiwick. Three times he played
against the Wolverines and three
times he was on the losing side. In
1921, Michigan won 38-0. In 1922
the score was 16-7 and in Marti-
neau's final year Minnesota was
bumped off by a 10-0 score.
Then Martineau came to Michi-
gan in 1938 and was on the los-
ing side again for the past two
Munn is last, and no better. He
played for Minnesota between 1929
and 1931 and Michigan won all three
of those battles, 7-6, 7-0 and 6-0.
When he turned to the Michigan
cause in 1938 as line coach, Munn
naturally suffered the same fate as
the other two coaches in question.-
Well, now I ask you frankly, is
that the type of coaching staff you
care to have representing the Wol-
verines in Minneapolis Saturday.
Get behind this move to hide away
the trio. Let the rest of the Michi-
gan mentors go along. They're harm-
less indeed. Let Fielding Yost make
the trip. The last five Michigan
teams he coached outpointed the
Gophers, 126 to 13.
But as far as Crisler, Martineau
and Munn are concerned, be it ever
so humble, there's no place like
