Hawkeye Attack Is Aimed
At Flankmen; Crisler

In, their warm-up session against
Drake last Saturday the University
of Iowa football eleven gained virtu-
ally all its rushing yardage on wide
sweeps around the enemy's flanks.
Enough of these sorties were success-
fully executed by Bill Green, Jim
Youel and other fleet Hawkeye backs
to win them the ball game, 25-8.
Of course that was Drake. And
this Saturday Iowa is playing Mich-
igan, not Drake.
But the point is that Dr. Eddie
Anderson's ensemble of swifties up
there at Iowa City do seem to rely
on the one style of attack that may
cause the Wolverines no little em-
barrassment. Between the tackles
on the Michigan line no one could ask
for anything more, and the backfield
is admittedly shaping up as some-
thing wonderful to behold. But when
the dust and cobwebs can be blown
off the Statue of Liberty play, and the
Spartans make it click twice for a
total gain of 35 yards, there is just
and immediate cause for concern a
propos of our end stuation.
Which matter the coaches will
without any doubt attend to before
2 p.m. Saturday.° Yesterday however,
business was to some extent shelved
for the day, because Coach Crisler
wanted to give his warriors a chance
to recuperate from their gridiron bat-
tle with the lads from Lansing. After
giving thesquad a few new plays he
sent the first eleven to the showers
and 'scrimmaged the second team
against the Red Shirts for 45 minutes.
Sopho nore Paul White, who made
a sensational collegiate grid debut
Saturday, was conspicuously dressed
in a sweat suit instead of his uniform.
Paul, who was the only serious cas-
ualty of the game, has a shoulder n-
jury which has been diagnosed as -a
strain n the shoulder muscle and a
possible bone separation and which
will keep him from active duty for
a feN days at least.
Pavey Nelson, who was literally
K. A'd in the game by a crack on the
button, in one of the pile-ups, was
completely recovered ,yesterday and

the first eleven.

program at Ferry Field until they go
into their actual track conditioning
wheit they move inside with the ad-
vent of cold weather.
Coach Doherty divides the entire
squad into two teams, this year the
teams being composed of sophomores
and juniors opposing the seniors in
the second group. The idea is that
these two teams compete against each
other from now until the end of the
month, at which time the losing team
must stand host to the victors at a
steak fry to be held on the Island.
The members of each team take
part in five events, four of which are
compulsory for every entrant and the
fifth being the individual's own track
specialty. Each man has the privi-
lege of taking as many tries as he
wants at chinning, push-ups, a 12
lb. shot put, and a standing broad-
jump, as well as at his own event
and only his best effort is recorded
for the final team scoring.
Competition Keen
The scoring is compiled by the
Pentathlon scoring chart, which gives
1000 points for 42 push-ups, 1000
points for a 54 ft. shot put, etc., with
either an ascending or descending
scale. Last year's competition was
so keen that out of a total of 68,000
points, there was not more than 400
points separating the winners and

stamped him as a fine center last year. His centering and strong line-
backing helped Michigan trounce the Spartans.

fashion. Captain Westfall caused the
Spartans plenty of trouble with his
battering tactics through the 'center,
and in the third period he pounded-
his way from the State 49 to the 23
yard line to set up the second touch-
down which he scored a moment
later on a spinner over right guard.
Scored Twice
Much hope for the future was gen-
erated by the play of sophomores'
Kuzma, hard-running lad from Gary,
and White, a well-built speedster
from River Rouge. Inserted into
the ;tailback slot when Nelson was
injured, Kid Kuzma turned' in a
capable job of power running, kicked
with fair accuracy, booting three out
of bounds within the 15-yard line,
and completed four of seven passes,
although two were intercepted.
In the second quarter Kuzma
plunged over the goal on a tandem
power " play over right guard for
Michigan's first score, and in the
third period he marked up the Wol-
verines' final six points on a similar
play over left guard.
White played hard and tough foot-
ball while he was in the game. He
ran reverses well, blocked sharply,
and turned in a more than adequate
defensive game. In the third quar-

The Michigan State contest was
the first time Freshman Coach Wal-
lie Weber has seen a Wolverine var-
sity eleven perform in ,threeYears
due to his scouting assignments.
Wolverine fans were impressed
with the way Michigan's offense
snapped into action despite State's
quick touchdown, which in former
years, might have seriously jolted
team morale. The Wolverine attack,
dulled by some sloppy blocking in
the first half, sharpened up consid-
erably in the last two periods, al-
though it was bogged frequently by
Quarterback George Ceithaml's
philosophy is fairly simple: "You
can't win 'em all," Cy declared, "un-
less you win the first."
