defense assignment thus calls for a
guard who is not anxious to wade in
and get himself cross-blocked, and
Fred Olds and Ralph Heikkinen ap-
peared to be the leading candidates
at the end of Spring Practice.
Archie Kodros, freshman guard
who also got the call often in the
off-season drills, will face a battery
of five experienced guards from last
year's squad, George Marzonie, Ernie
Pederson, Jack Brennan, Fred Ziem,
and "Dutch" Vandewater. Marzonie
and Brennan are in summer school,
but are not very far below the eli-
gibility standard, and should not
have much trouble.
CENTER: There's no doubt about
Captain Joe "Fighting Face" Rinaldi
here, but replacements will give trou-
ble with John Jordan on the lst of
scholastically hopeless cases for 1937.
Kiodros can play either guard or cen-
ter, and two more freshmen, Tom
Hutton and Horace Tinker are also
under consideration. Pederson is an-
other guard who can play center, and
Vandewater was groomed for the job
for a while last year.
Quarterbacks Plentiful
QUARTERBACK: Last year's trio,
Bill Barclay, Doug Farmer, and Lou7
Levine, will be back intact, and rate,
in about that order. While the posi-
tion was not always played satis-
factorily last year, experience should'
do a lot, and improvement . showed;
during Spring practice.
WINGBACK: The loss of John;
Smithers, which apparently is not yet
absolutely definite, leaves Kipke with
a lot of grief to handle here. Bob Coo-
per may be shifted up from the tail-
back post, and Ed Phillips and Bob
Piotrowski are two more candidates if
they regain eligibility, but none of;
them can replace Johnny as a blocker.
Norm Nickerson comes closest to him,
but will have to show more speed to,
be transferred from his fullback post.
Bob Campbell may alternate between
tailback and wingback, and two
freshmen, Milo Sukup, ineligible, andc
Hercules Renda, the unbelievable
atom, are also under consideration.-
Sweet Hard To Replace
FULLBACK: Ced Sweet at present
appears to be one graduate who can'tt
be fully replaced. His two under-
studies of last year, Tex Stanton and
Bob Curren, will fight it out with
Nickerson and two freshmen, JohnI
Kinsey and Ed Christy.
TAILBACK: Crossing off the tail-I
backs who appear to be.headed for
other positions, there remain Fredc
Trosko, the Chicago Alumni Trophyc
winner, Wally Hook, Stark Ritchie,t
and Norm Purucker should he regain1
eligibility. The three veterans all had,
off and on careers last year, and so
are hard to rate. Trosko is the big
question mark in Kipke's mind, for1
the head coach is counting on thet
Flint sophomore, should he come upi
to expectations, to do a big share of
the kicking, passing, and signal call-
ing when hie isn't busy, running for he
is a hard worker and takes well to
coaching, having the additional rec-
ommendation of being in no scholas-l
tic danger.t
Trosko Heads Punters,
SPECIALTIES: Kipke rates Tros-
ko as the best of the punters at the
present moment, but also wants Nick-I
erson, Ritchie, Campbell, Puruckerc
and Kinsey to go through kickingc
drills. Trosko appears again on the
list of passers along with the otherc
three tailbacks, Campbell, and Coo-I

per. Signals may become the job of
any of the three quarterbacks, Tros-
ko, Ritchie, or Purucker. The place-
kicking assignment will be deter-
mined by drills in which Paul Niel-1
son, Ann Arbor end, is likely to come
out ahead.
A season in which the Wolverines
missed a possible victory over North-
western, the toughest team in the
conference, by the margin of a nar-
rowly missed field goal early in the
fourth quarter, cannot be written off
as a total failure even if Columbia
was the only team to fall before the+
Didn't Click Last Year
Michigan had the raw material
but it didn't seem to click together
except for brief moments, and for
the most part the material was raw
in every sense of the word. This
year almost the same material,
coached to a more vicious blocking
and tackling by Hunk Anderson,
welded into a smoother organization
by constant coaching and more team
play, seasoned by a year's competi-
tion and extensive drills, may unite
to form the team which will really hit
the comeback trail its three predeces-
sors have failed to find.
Minnesota, Ohio State, Northwest-
ern, and Michigan State are as tough
as ever. Pennsylvania loses the back-
field it raised on the eight-year plan,
but will be re-enforced by what last
year was one of the strongest year-

greatest athletes, Dye was the hub of

backfield aces, but Williams is now

--- is another Nagurski, better than
either Kostka or Joesting. Which is

Thus you have the Wolverines'
Conference opponents for next fall.
And from this viewpoint, they don't
appear overly tough, excepting again,
Minnesota. If a "comeback" for Mich-

Men's Clothes Of Value And Distinction At


University Boasts One Of The Finest
~Athletics For All' Programs In U. S.

-~--~ "a.

. and now

. . .

This University is one of the few
large educational institutions in this
country which cannot be accused of
over-emphasizing intercollegiate ath-
letics at the expense of intramural
sports and which can undoubtedly
boast one of the finest "athletics for
all" programs in the United States.
According to Elmer D. Mitchell, di-
rector of Intramural athletics here,
more than 300,000 students use the
facilities of the huge new Intramural
Sports Building, erected in 1928,
during the course of a school year,
and on the average of 1,000 to 15,000
use the building every day.
Mitchell said that 7,500 men stu-
dents in the University enrolled in
some form of competitive intramural
sport during the last school year,
which is approximately 70 per cent
of the student body, while 5,000 more
were registered in more informal
types of contests.
-32 Sports Offered
A total of 32 sports are offered
the students and the entire intra-
mural program at Michigan is wholly
supported, with the exception of the
instructors' salaries, by proceeds col-
lected from intercollegiate football
games. The salaries of teachers are
paid from the University budget.
According to Mitchell, a good share
of the net profit from football, the
only paying sport, goes for the main-
tenance of indoor and outdoor ath-
letic programs.
The erection of Yost Field House in
1924, dedicated to the real "Grand
Old Man" of Michigan Athletit's,
Fielding H. Yost gave great impetus
to the intramural sports program by
removing all varsity practices and
games from Waterman gymnasium,
which building was at that time the
focal point for all indoor intramural
An even greater boon to the "ath-
letics for all" program was the erec-
tion of the huge Intramural Sports
Caters To All Tastes
Housing almost every conceivable
type of facility for the advancement
of the intramural sports, the erection
of this building, of course greatly fa-
cilitated the program in a number
of sports which heretofore had been
partially neglected on the sports -pro-
gram because of inadequate facilities.
Chief among the new additions
were swimming, basketball, boxing,
wrestling, handball, squash, indoor
baseball volleyball, indoor golf, water
polo badminton, and tennis.
Beside the large number of in-
door athletic facilities of the Intra-
mural Department, there are a great
many outdoor sports available, some
of which are organized under the de-
partment and others which are of the
more informal nature.
The University of Michigan boasts
the finest 18-hole golf course of any
college or university in the country.
It is a testing layout, affording the
expert keen competition, yet- at the
same time it is fair enough to allow
a good score if said "dub" is fairly
hot. The course is situated south of
town, about a mile from the campus
proper, in an exceedingly hilly terri-
tory, and it is said that one of the
finest thrills to be offered on the
course is the view of the entire cam-
pus among the huge oaks and maples
in the valley below the eighteenth
42 Tennis Courts
Beside the excellent golfing facili-
ties the University boasts 30 tennis
courts at Ferry Field for the men
students and 12 more at Palmer Field,
reserved for the use of women stu-
dents. Those at Ferry Fieldare prin-
cipally clay, although there are a
j few cement courts, while those at
Palmer Field are one-third concrete.

Field is used in the fall for field
Despite the vast number of proj-
ects in athletics carried out by both
the women's and men's divisions of
intramural athletics close attention
is paid by both departments to the

4 Big Ten Crowns

legiate meets, again leading the way,
the Wolverines again bid fair to re-
peat and gain their 10th Conference
crown in 12 years and their fifth con-
secutive national title.
Wily Matt Mann's biggest problem
will be to find a successor to Co-
Captain Jack Kasley, world record
holder in the breast stroke event, and
a backstroker to take Fred Cody's
place. A duo of freshman divers bid
fair to continue the performances' of
All-American Ben Grady, who took
the National highboard title, and Ed
Hutchins is a good replacement for
Co-Captain Frank Barnard in the
distance swim.
Coach Charlie Hoyt's track team
lived up to its reputation by taking
its fourth consecutive indoor title at
Chicago the same night that the
swimmers were performing their ex-
ploits. And with that team perform-
ing at its best in the spring, the Wol-
verines took Pittsburgh, with the
famed Johnny Woodruff, and Cali-
fornia's Bears in its stride before it
handed Michigan its fourth Confer-
ence title in the outdoor meet.
Star performers were not lacking in
the thinclad aggregation, but it was
team balance that enabled them to
come to the fore as the nation's best.
The colored sophomore, Big Bill Wat-
son, proved the team's most valuable
man when he dominated the outdoor
meet by taking first place points in
the shot put, discus throw and the
broad jump, but he was ably second-
ed by "Singin' Sam" Stoller, who not
only took the Big Ten century event
but also the National Intercollegiate
race over that distance, and Capt.

requiring extended physical exertion,
to undergo a physical examination,
and every competitor in cross-coun-
try, boxing, wrestling and long-dis-
tance running is given a prescribed
course of training so that he will be
in proper condition before entering
these events.
A recent innovation in the depart-
ment's policy is to give individual
instruction in sports where there is
sufficient demand. The regular in-
tramural activity supervisors are as-
sisted in this phase of the program,
by the varsity coaches and student
teachers. Instructions are now given
in archery, codeball, badminton, box-
ing, fencing, golf, handball, squash
and Sigma Delta Psi, swimming, ten-
nis, and wrestling.
Besides the directly supervised ac-
tivities mentioned before each season,
there are a great many snorts and im-
promptu games which are directly or
indirectly stimulated by the formally
organized intramural program. The
better teams in the various sports
usually hold many practices and un-
scheduled games in addition to their
regular schedule of contests.
The tournaments, organized by the
Intramural Department, include only
a portion of those playing tennis, bas-
ketball, playground ball, baseball,
handball and horseshoes, as well as
those engaged in bowling, wrestling,
boxing, ice hockey and swimming.
Bob Osgood, who set the world's rec-
ord for the 120-yard high hurdle
event at 14 seconds flat over a sodden
track and in a driving rain.
Both Stoller and. Osgood will be
lost to the coming year's stiuad as
well as Captain-Elect Steve Mason,
Big Ten low hurdles champion whose
untimely death was a recent blow:
Major losses are Stan Birleson, in-
door 440 champion, Clayt Brelsford,
Howdy Davidson and Dave Hun, last
year's national A.A.U. pole-vault
Sophomore talent, headed by
Ralph Schwartzkopf, however, will
again add to that balance that has
characterized Wolverine track teams
since Charlie Hoyt took over the
reins. Schwartzkopf will bring points
in the mile and two-mile, events in
which Michigan has garnered few
laurels in recent years, while others
will bolster the team in every event
but the dashes and the high jump.
