Last Week of
Summer Drills
Gets Under Way
Intra-Squad Game
Saturday; Fall Practice
To Start August 30
The fourth of the six scrimmages
allowed during the summer session
took place yesterday with the Reds
and Blues playing in° real football
weather for what looked like blood
during a full hour's practice.
With the opener with Camp Grant
but a month off the squads were
playing with plenty of pepper. Elroy
Hirsch, former Wisconsin star, big
Bill Daley from Minnesota, and
Michigan's Bob Wiese, stellar sopho-
more performer from last year, pro-
vided some of the best play of the
Wink, Bauman To Return
Injuries that have handicapped
some of the men seem to be healing
satisfactorily, and the coaches expect
the players to be in good condition
soon. Jack Wink, former University of
Wisconsin signal-caller, was around
today, but as yet had on his Marine
uniform instead of the jersey. Clem
Bauman, who won the Chicago
Alumni award last year, could not
take part in practice either, but, like
Wink, is expected to return soon.
Battles for line positions are con-
tinuing. Line Coach Clarence Munn
stated that the men are fighting it
out on a nearly even keel. Both Merv
Fregulman, center in Michigan's line
of "seven oak posts" last year, and
Fred Negus, all-conference center
from Minnesota, look particularly
Intra-Squad Game Saturday
Fall practice starts on Aug. 30th,
and following Thursday's scrimmage
session and Saturday's intra-squad
game the men will be given a week
of rest.
As yet Coach "Fritz" Crisler has
not been able to fill the hole in this
year's schedule left/ when Michigan
State; cancelled' its game with the
Wolverines. The vacancy, however,
will probably be filled by the end
of this week.

Daily Sports Editor

Favorite Berlin Date

THAT GRAND OLD MAN OF MICHIGAN, Fielding H. Yost came up to
The Daily offices Monday and asked to see The Daily files for Nov. 26,
Now when anybody asks to see papers that old it is bound to arouse
curiosity, so we went over and asked "Hurry-Up" if there was anything
special that he was looking for, and if we could help him.
He starts to explain, "Well there was a story about a football game
played on that day in one of the national magazines recently . .
Here we are two jumps ahead of him for we have seen this story by
Clark Shaughnessy about the 1910 Michigan-Minnesota grid battle in
this m6nth's Esquire as we happened to sean through the magazine last
week. Yost was the Michigan coach then.
"And," Yost continues, "I just wanted to check on my memory." With
this, he starts rummaging through his coat pocket and finally pulls out a
short piece of paper with some names on it.
"These were the men on the Michigan team then, as I remember it,"
he says, pointing to the list, "and I wanted to check with your files to
see how close I was."
However the files were locked at the time and nobody in the building
had a key, so we copied this list down and promised to check on it for him.
It read something like this:
Cornwell at center, Bogle and Benbrook at guards, Conklin and
Edmunds at the tackles, Wells and Borleske at the ends, MacMillan at
quarterback, Magdisohn and Pattengill at the halves, and Lawton at
"NOW LET'S SEE if I can remember who the subs were," he ponders,"
there was Quinn, no, Quinn was a regular. I guess he alternated with
Bogle at guard that game. And there
was Cole, a tackle, and Greene, a
back. And finally there was Thom-
ba"Thomas was our regular half-
back, you' know. He was ineligible
t for the game, though; I can't re-
member exactly why. There was
'' .. something wrong with his entrance
credits, and they weren't accep-
table to the Big Ten. Of course,
we weren't in the Big Ten then but
. Minnesota was, and the Confer-
ence wouldn't let them play if
Thomson did. He became our cap-
tain for the next two years,
"They hadn't been scored on that
year," he says starting to grin just a
little bit, "and they were hailed as
the champs of the Midwest. O'
f course we weren't too bad. We had
just played a scoreless tie with Penn-
sylvania, the powerhouse of the
FIELDING H. YOST About this time we put in with,
"Didn't they score once, but have
the touchdown called back." Then we quickly resumed our silence as

from 1 P.M.


ti;. , -






he answers.
"Sure, but what good is that. The ball was dead when it hit the ref-
eree." And warming up, "Why I could pick up the ball in. between plays and
run for a touchdown but it wouldn't count."
"You know how we scored?" he queries. "This boy Wells pulled
out of the line and passed to Borleske on Minnesota's three-yard line.
Then MacMillan called the identical play with Wells carrying the ball
twice in a row, and Wells made just about the same yardage each time,
scoring on the second try."
By this time it appears that the person who has the key to the files will
not be in for some time so Yost remembers something else he has to do so he
starts to leave. Just before going, however, he says something that seems
to stick in our minds.
"You know Lawton is the only one from that team who is dead,"
he says, "all the rest are still alive and very prominent citizens." And
he proceeds to state the home town of each.1
WELL, HE LEAVES, and five minutes later the person with the key to the
files comes in. So we haul out the issues of 1910, and see for ourselves.
There it is in black and white, the Michigan lineup exactly as Yost has
remembered it after 33 years. And since he had coached some 20 odd teams,
we consider the remembering of this one no small feat.
Also in the cover of the game it tells all about the passing and run-
ning of Wells, and describes the scoring of the Wolverines' touchdown
just as Yost had a few minutes earlier. Besides this, it tells in glowing
terms of the fine play of Michigan's captain, All-American Al Benbrook.
We go to class that day and think a lot about this man "Hurry-Up."
Then later when we return to The Daily we get a call from the Grand Old
Man, and feel very flattered.1
"Did you hear about Benbrook?" he asks in a quiet voice.
We answer in the negative, so he goes on.I
"I just got a long distance call from Thomson," he says, "and he t
told me that Benbrook died today. The news that he died was a dis- N
tinct shock to me. He was a potent factor in Michigan football history. r
He was captain and All-American guard in 1910, and a loyal alumnus of

If we are to carry out the ideals
we have formulated for a political,

graduating students who are to re-

The place liberal education will

From the Four Freedoms we have

DETROIT, Aug. 17.-(AP)-The De-
troit Tigers stamped out'a ninth in-
ning rally today to defeat, the Phila-
delphia Athletics, 4 to 3, for a sweep
of the three game series, and the-

Fortunately for Trout, the Tigers

cluded home runs by Ned Harris and
rookie Dick Wakefield. Trout and

in a run.

Robert Hayden
Discusses U.S.
Negro ction
"The roaring twenties stimulated
the nationalist outbreak and in-
creased, literary expression among
Negroes," Robert Hayden said in the
sixth lecture of, the- inter-racial series
Monday in the Amphitheatre of the
Rackham Building.
To support his point he quoted and
interpreted the wrks of the out-
standing:Negro fiction writers of the
period:. Zora Neale Hurston, Arna
Bontemps, and Richard Wright.
"Richard Wright in his most fam-
ous book "Native Son" has dealt with
the psychoses.arising from race prej-
udices and the narrow ghetto world
ini which the. Negroes have been
forced to live," Hayden declared. He
concluded his lecture by saying that
i "Bigger Tom" the leading char-
acter can only be explained in terms
of the psychological content of the
