Bill Renner, Sophomores Key


Wolverines' Grid



Michigan Teams
At Extremes In
Grid, Cage Teams Are Last
But Five Big Ten Crowns
Are Collected
Thinclads Win Twice
Golf, Swimming Teams At
Top In Conference And
National Competition
Like the little girl in the nursery
rhyme, Michigan's athletic teams for
the past year were for the most part
either very good or very bad. Be-
ginning with the most disastrous
football season in history and carry-
ing over into a basketball season dur-
ing which but two Conference games
were won, Michigan teams took two
sports, fifth in one and sixth in two.
The record: football, last in Big
Ten; basketball, last in Big Ten;
swimming, won Big Ten and na-
tional titles; hockey, won Confer-
ence crown; wrestling, finished sixth
in Conference meet; track, won in-
door and outdoor Big Ten titles;
baseball, finished fifth in BigTen;
golf, won national and Big Ten titles;
and tennis, finished sixth in Confer-
ence meet.'
After Bill Renner, nucleus of the
1934 grid team, was laid out with a
broken ankle a week before the open-
ing game, all plans of Coach Harry
Kipke to uncover the semblance of
an offense were unsuccessful with the
result that the team earned just one
victory, a grim win over asweak
Georgia Tech team, 9-2. Successive
games were lost to Michigan State,
Chicgo, Illinois, Minensota, Ohio
State and Northwestern.
The basketball team, after sweep-
Ing through six or seven pre-Confer-
ence season games, collected but two
wins in ConferenCe- coznpe itO1M .,
Hockey Tiam Wins First
The hockey team won the first Con-
ference crown in the most heroic per-
formance of the year, defeatingMin-
nesota in the second of the crucial
two-game series here with only six
men available for play. It was Mich-
igan's first title in five years. John
Sherf, sharp-shooting forward, has
been signed for professional play with
the Detroit Olympics.
The swimming team, Coach Matt
Mann's "greatest team assemble un-
der one roof," won the first of the two
national titles, its sixth in nine years.
Previously it had won its eighth Con-
ference crown in nine seasons.
Individual national titles were won
by captain-elect Frank Fehsenfeld, in
both diving events, Jack Kasely with
a new record in the breast stroke,
And Taylor Drysdale in the back-
In the indoor Big Ten track meet
Coach Hoyt's team, composed pri-
marily of sophomores, proved his
thesis that "training will bring out
talent" when they won with a record
total. In the outdoor meet, held here
May 24 and 25, the same team gave
Coach Hoyt his first complete sweep
in conference competition.
The fifth Conference title and sec
and national crown were won by the
golf team. With John Fischer, Walk-
er Cup player, blazing the way to a
new individual record, the team cut
more than 50 strokes from the team
record as three Michigan men fin-
ished in that order in the Big Ten
meet at Chicago.
Malloy Comes To Front
In the national meet at Washing-
ton, Woody Malloy emerged from the
shadow of the brilliant play of Fisch-
er and Chuck Kosis to tie for low

medal honors with his teammate,
Kocsis. The team, with Fischer and
Dana Seeley completing the quartet,
took the title for the second straight
Hard hit by injuries and ineligi-
bilities, the wrestling team under
Coach Cliff Keen earned sixth place
at the Conference meet after break-
ing even in dual competition.
The baseball team proved "disap-
pointing" in the words of Coach Ray
Fisher as it went to fifth in the
Conference with a better than .500
average. On the spring road trip
the team won two out of six games
and in Big Ten games worl six and
lost five.
After one of the most successful
dual meet seasons in history in which
ten meets were won, two tied and
nA lost the team finished sixth in

His Passing A Key To 1935 Grid Successes

Summer Sports Program Is
Ended With Golf Tournament,

The finals in the all-campus golf
tournament yesterday completed one'
of the most successful intramural
sports programs that any summer
session has enjoyed. In that match
Ed. Galloway defeated Gilbert Fisher,
one up. The contest was featured by
tight playing all the way.
Participation was so large as to
warrant having an added flight. Wil-
bur Worley defeated W. Shannon 6
to 5 to win the championship of this
flight, which is composed of the los-
ers of the first round.
Probably the most popular of the
sports was playground baseball. More
than 100 students, comprising six full
teams, took part. There have never
been more than four teams partici-
pating in previous summer sessions.
This summer the Giants won top hon-

With the exception of Minnesota

Portman, Frank Froschauer, Bart
Cummings, Chuck Bennis, Andy Dahl,
Bill Walker and John Fischer are
gone - but Zuppke has a hound basis
for a successful team in the 11 re-
turning lettermen.
There will be a veteran line with
Capt. Chuck Galbreath and Arvo
Antilla, tackles, and Ed Gryboski,
guard, all seniors, and El Sayre, cen-
ter, who made good as a sophomore
last year. Cliff Kuhn, who won his
letter as a substitute guard in 1933,
will be another experienced candi-
Ken Nelson, Gene Dykstra, and
Francis Cantwell, ends, earned letters
as sophomores last season. Cantwell's
rise was sudden and late as he did
not have a minute of competition
until he played throughout the final
game against Chicago
The lanky figure of Les Lindberg,
triple-threat halfback, who was the
choice of his teammates as the team's
most valuable player, bulks large as
he makes ready for his final season.
He kicks far and places his punts,
passes dexterously, and is a dan-
gerous runner in the open. Wib
Henry, who will probably succeed
Beynon at quarterback, is a 180-
pound six-footer, who won letters in
football, basketball, and baseball as
a sophomore the last school year.
Because of his understudy role to
Beynon last season he had scant op-
portunity to play but occupied a half-
back position throughout the Chicago
game and showed promise as a power-

ors with a record of 7 wins and 1 loss.
The Braves and the Pirates tied fort
second place, both teams winning
four games and losing three. Voor-
hies of the Giants and Bekken of theI
Pirates, a veteran from last summer,
were outstanding as pitchers. E. Es-
pelie captained the winners.
Regulation hardball also proved
peular. This is the first summert
that it has been included in the sportsf
program. Three games were played,
one withtheBl 39)39 )39taoin)39)3
one with the Blazing Arrow club
to a 5-5 tie, and a two game seriesl
with the Lewis-Frisinger outfit which
ended in a split decision. The Uni-
versity team won the first, 7 to 3, and
lost the second, 1 to 6. Lockhart, a
former Alabama semi-pro very ably
assumed the pitching duties.
Tennis, always a favorite, again
had a large field of contestants. M.
Lane defeated H. Beddow for the,
singles title, while Shoberg and Sven-t
son seized the doubles title by beat-
ing Schnap and Tompkins. The
tennis players as well as the golfersj
wvere seeded as much as possible to
make the play more interesting.
In the handball finals J. Rattneri
defeated John Speicher. Speicher1
is a Varsity wrestling prospect in the1
118-pound division. A codeball tour-
nament was held this year. The
game is a novelty variation of hand-
ball, the feet being used instead of
the hands. C. Tompkins was the
winner in this event.
Horseshoes, a very popular spring
game, also drew its quota of con-
testants. E. Espelie won the singles
from Pat Gannan and teamed with
A. Smith to win the doubles title.

50 Gridders Will
Report For First
Pract ice Sept. 10
A Varsity football squad of about 50
men will be invited to return for
the beginning of fall practice, Sept.
10, according to Coach Harry Kipke.
Kipke at present is on his vacation
but will return to Ann Arbor about
Sept. 3.
The squad will practice twice daily
until the opening of school, Sept.
Among the 50 whom Kipke at pres-
ent plans will report are 13 who
are taking Sammer Session work to
make up scholastic difficulties. In-
-ligible at the end of the second
somester last year, they were all given
a chance to regain their status with
summer school work.
Heading those taking summer work
are two lettermen, Cedric Sweet and
Joe Ellis. Four others who hold the
key to the makeup of the center
of the Michigan line are included,
Harry Wright, leading candidate for
center, George Marzonie, outstanding
freshman guard, and Frank Dutkow-
ski and Harry Lutomski, fullbacks
who may see, a shift to guard duty.
Others in summer school are Norm
Nickerson, Art Valpey, John Rieck,
and Art Leadbetter.
Seven men, including Harold Sears,
a letterman at guard, have already

Two intersectional games and a
meeting with the two pre-season Con-
ference favorites will feature Michi-

Eight successive games have been
scheduled for the Wolverine gridders
in their efforts to regain the prestige
lost in a disastrous 1934 season, be-
ginning with a meeting, Oct. 5, with
Michigan State. Under Coach
Charlie Bachman for the second
season, the Spartans last year regis-
tered their first win in two decades
over Michigan, 16-0.
Indiana University will come to
An Arbor, Oct. 12, for the first meet-
ing between the two teams since the
mild-mannered Bo McMillin was es-
tablished as head of the Hoosier grid
machine. The Hoosiers, with Mc-
Millin's system now well-established,
have been picked by Coach Harry
Kipke as the dark-horse team of the
The first trip of the season will
take the Michigan squad to Wiscon-
sin, Oct. 19.
The following Saturday, the Wol-
verines will meet Columbia at New
York City in the first of the two inter-
sectional games. Led by Al Barabas,
who upset a Stanford team in the
1934 New Year's Day Rose Bowl game,
Coach Lou Little's Lions are looked
upon as one of the potentially strong
teams in the east.
Wieman Picks Quackers
Picked by Tad Wieman, former
head coach here and now line coach
at Princeton as one of the outstand-
ing teams in prospect for 1935, Penn-

Quakers a dangerous fie for the 1935
Michigan's three arch-rivals in
Western Conference football compe-
tition will be met on successive Sat-
urdays beginning Nov. 9 when the
Illini will be met at Champaign, and
followed by home contests with Min-
nesota and Ohio State.
Illinois again wil be an outstand-
ing threat while the Gophers and the
Buckeyes are the paper favorites for
the Big Ten title.
Individual tickets for the home
games vary from $1.10 with tax to
$3.30 with tax. Seats for the Michi-
gan State game will be $1.10 for re-
served end seats, $2.20 for reserved
seats and $2.70 for box seats.
For the Pennsylvania, Minnesota
and Ohio games reserved end seats
will be sold at $1.65, reserved seats
at $2.75 and box seats at $3.30.
Games Are Broadcast
All box seats are between the goal
lines, and all home games begin at
2 p.m., eastern standard time. Broad-
casting rights to all home games
have been sold to a Detroit auto-
mobile company and Detroit sta-
tions will furnish the outlet. Na-
tional broadcasts of the intersection-
al games and important Conference
engagements may be arranged.
Season football otickets for all
home games may be purchased for
$10.00, tax included, according to
Harry Tillotson, ticket sales man-
ager. Applications for season and
individual game tickets will be avail-
able soon, he said. Purchasers of
season tickets will be allotted the
same seats for all games. No season
tickets will be sold after Oct. 5.
Railroad companies, as in past
years, have agreed to grant reduced

rates from An Arbor and Detroit to
all out-of-town games while special
trains will be run from Detroit to
Ann Arbor for all home games.
Even Coaches Have
Summer Diversions
Just like other humans, coaches
have their favorite summer diver-
sions, and most take to them during
the summer months. Some, how-
ever, are forced to delay on abbre-
viate their vacations by academic
work which casts them in the role of

iehioan Men
Promment In
All-Star Game
Regeezi And Ford Play For
Collegians; Bill Hewitt
Is Bear Star
For the second year, Michigan
men will be prominent in the an-
nual football game between a team
of college all-stars and the Chicago
Bears, to be played Aug. 29 in Sol-
diers' Field, Chicago. Although they
undoubtedly will not figure as bril-
liantly as did Bill Hewitt for the
Bears and Chuck Bernard and Herm
Everhardus for the all-stars last year,
Hewitt again and John Regeczi and
Jerry Ford for the collegians will
keep Michigan well represented in
the classic.
Regeczi and Ford were selected on
the squad of 44 which entered train-
ing for the game Aug. 10, at North-
western University. Although not
on the first two teams selected by a
nation-wide poll of fans, both were
chosen to bring the squad to practice
Both may be given a chance to
break into the game. Ford, who
ranked fourth in the nation's ballot-
ing, is especially well liked by Charlie
Bachman, coach at Michigan State
and a member of the all-star coach-
ing staff. Ford was also singled out
by Dick Hanley, unattached, as the
logical pivotman on a team which
would employ power and strength
Last year, in the first of the game,
which resulted in a 0-0 tie, the trio
of former .Michigan men proved to
be the outstanding group of indi-
viduals on the field. Hewitt's play
at end for the Bears, defensively and
offensively, made him the star of the
professional team while Everhardus'
kicking and running, with his pass-
ing, and Bernard's brilliant line work
featured the play of the all-stars.
The coaching staff of the all-stars,
also selected by a nation-wide poll, is
headed by Frank Thomas of Notre
Dame, and includes Bachman, Slip
Madigan of St. Marys' (California)
and Dr. Clarence W. Spears, Wiscon-
It is expected that the all-stars will
employ the Notre Dame shift and
system in their play, as all of the
coaches except Spears are graduates
of that school.
Michigan will be represented on
the field at the all-star game not
only by the gridders, but by three
cheerleaders who will help direct the
vocal energies of the more than 80,-
000 expected to see the game. The
three are Head Cheerleader Bobby
Burns, Van Dunakin, and Sam Poz-
John Townsend Will
Be Nucleus Of 1935
Basketball Quintet
The most outstanding interscho-
lastic basketbal player in the Middle
West in 1933-34, John Townsend of
Indianapolis will be the nucleus of
the Michigan Varsity cage team this
Generally considered the greatest
cage prospect ever to enroll here,
about Townsend will be built a team
,"hich it is hoped will rise above the
low levels of recent seasons. Per-
fectly built, tall and husky, Town-
send has all the attributes of a great
pivotman, according to Coach Frank-
lin Cappon, and his ballhandling is
superior to anything ever seen here.

Not only is Townsend the most out-
standing basketball prospect, how-
ever, but he ranks with the best track
prospects in the sophomore class.
Concentrating in the shot put, he last
year boosted his record in that event
from about 40 feet indoors to 46
feet, 11 inches, five inches further
than any other Michigan man since
Coach Charles Hoyt has been here
has recorded.

Michigan's "Old Man"

Fielding H. Yost, director of ath-
letics, is Michigan's "Grand Old
Man." Coming to Michigan as foot-
ball coach in 1901, his successes from
that year until 1927 when he retired
to take complete charge of Michigan
athletics, director of which he had
been since 1921, form the body of
football lore which has become the
Michigan tradition. "Point-a-min-
ute" teams, Willie Heston, Germany
Schultz, the first Rose Bowl game, all
are inseparable from the name of
Yost and will be so as long as Mich-
igan men talk about Michigan foot-
Great as were his football successes,
however, an equally durable monu-
ment to his name will be the ath-
letic plant which was born and has
grown under his care. For it is great-
est of collegiate athletic plants in the
world; an unequalled golf course,
a stadium which ranks with the
country's finest, the best fitted intra-
mural sports building in the country,
and a Field House bearing his name
are all the result of "The Old Man's"
executive genius, use of which has
been made possible by football records
carrying on with the traditions which
he himself had built.

With Veteran Fullback,
Cedric Sweet
With the opening of football prac-
tice a little more than three weeks
away, the situation finds one close
parallel with the situation of a year
ago and at the same time one great
The parallel exists in the person
of Bill Renner, who at this time in
1934 carried all the hopes for Mich-
igan grid successes, but the dissim-
ilarity exists in the fact that the
coaching staff is looking to the best
crop of sophomores since the -class
which brought Chuck Bernard, Whi-
tey Wistert, Ted Petoskey, Herm
Everhardus and Stan Fay to bolster
the record which sagged to its low-
nst level in history last fall.
Captain Renner again is the key
man to the Michigan offense. With
:assing ability which ranks with the
two Michigan quarterbacks who have
become latter-day immortals of the
sport, Bennie Friedman and Harry
Newman, Renner is potentially the
greatest offensive threat on the squad,
mnd one to be feared by the entire
Because of the threat which he car-
,ies with him, Renner will be used
principally in an emergency role,
'tarting few if any games but being
;hot into the game when the team
eaches a scoring position, according
.o the present plans of Coach Kipke.

Kipke's pl1ans are laid upon experi-
rces of the last two seasons.
In 1933 Renner demonstrated his
,apacity to fulfill the role of the
mergency offensive threat when his
)resence cowed an Ohio State team
o thoroughly that its defense was
2ompletely demoralized. Entering
.he game as he did just as the Mich-
,gan team reached scoring territory,
he Buckeye defense spread for mass
)rotection and it was a simple matter
o score on running and fake-pass
)lays. Renner's absence last year
left the team without a capable
,asser, which was the key to the
disastrous season.
Beginning with the Michigan State
;ame, the need of a single scoring
hreat became apparent and in the
:hicago game a capable passer could
rave won the game by scoring in the
irst period when a succession of op-
ortunities were offered. Against
Minnesota, after the Gophers had
Jeen played to a standstill in the
irst.half, a passer might have saved
he game before the entire defense
;rumbled, disheartened by the nu-
nerous failures to score.
Renner, counted on to play the im-
>ortant role on the 1934 team, was
aid out by a broken ankle in a pre
-eason scrimmage and efforts to find
z suitable replacement were unsuc-
This year, however, to supplement
jr to furnish a background for the
fforts of Renner, Coach Kipke has
a wealth of backfield material com-
mining all the elements of brawn
and speed, and he has intimated that
he Michigan system of "punt, pass
nd prayer" may see alteration by
,he inclusion of spinners, laterals and
unning plays.
Sweet Leads Fullbacks
Leading the backfield candidates
wvill be Cedric Sweet, a fullback whose
play last year was one of the bright
spots of the dark record. His defen-
sive play, along with punging abil-
ities, make him the nucleus of the
regular backfield, and he may also
be called upon to do the kicking.
Along with Sweet, two sophomore
backs will make outstanding bids for
starting positions, Stark Ritchie of
