He was out of the Wisconsin game 10 minutes. Kipke mentioned that all the hoys on the squad except Bob Cooper had been out during the afternoon and that Cooper was expected out soon If not tomorrow then possibly Wednesday. Cooper, together with Bud Hanshue. Fred Ziem, Bob Amrlne and Krcd Olds, make up the contingent that ha3 been out because of knee injuries. Ziem and Hanshue were out In sweat suits, Olds had his uniform on and Amrlne was wear-ins street clothes. Hanshue, the regular tackle, forced out In the Indiana game, mav be hack for the Illinois game a week from Saturday, Kipke said today. Kipke was obviously glad to niake the announcement as the injured Viergever and Hanshue are his only veteran tackles. He has been Retting along entirely with sophomores during the time they have been out. Scrubs Battle Frosh The scrub team, including a few boys who played against Columbia Saturday, scrimmaged against Wal-ly Weber's freshmen today and for a while piled through them without trouble. Working without substitutions while Weber was giving his yearling players a blow frequently, the scrubs bogged down later, however, and finally lost their momentum completely. Bob Campbell, the stubby sophomore halfback from Ionia, was the ball toting star of the reserves. Campbell worked well behind blocking and when there were no block-In? ahead of him, made his own boles. He was rarely stopped short of from three to five yards. On one touchdown ho was the starting man on a triple lateral that ended up with Doug Farmer across the goal l'ne. The lateral passing, incidentally, was about the best it has been in practice this year. Kipke said today he would run m first team hard Tuesday.

(Hurry-up) Yost, of Michigan, who crashed upon a startled football world in 1901 under the Maize and Blue banner with Willie Heston, Gregory, Sweeley, Nell Snow, Redden, Hernstein, Boss Weekes and others PugVaughan to Lead Lions Will Start at Quarter in Boston Game By Tod Rockwell Charles (Pug) Vaughan, last year a flaming back for the University of Tennessee, Monday was named to start at the important quarterback position for the Detroit Lions when the team meets the Redskins from Boston. The game will be played at the University of Detroit Stadium Wednesday night, at 8:15 p. m. That. was the big news around the Lion camp. The old master quarterback. Earl (Dutch) Clark, will view the start of the ball game from the bench some-thing he has done infrequently. But the Ten-nesee youth has so conducted himself of late that Coach Potsy Clark named him willy-nilly as the pilot for the Boston game. Pug came to the Lions this fall with plenty 8 of m e c h anical ability. He first Dutch Clark convinced his coach that he was professional caliber by the way he handled punts. He is a certain punt handler. He has plenty of Bpeed and could tote a football with great deftness, given an opening in any old line. He Has Ability Pug has maneuver ability. That is the knack of slashing through a hole in a line as quickly as it opens. Holes in professional football ranks do not stay open long. The door almost invariably is closed by a staunch secondary once torn asunder. ' And then Pug proved that he was hard to bring down once in the clear. He was rated as the best passer of the new bunch to come up from the college ranks of last fall. He could spear passes and quickly absorbed the blocking technique of the Clark System which isn't the same as Pug learned at old Tennessee. The pro blocking is done, for the most part, at much greater speed, Just one thing held the cotton-topped youth from becoming a regular alternate at the outset He faltered with his signal calling. The Lion formations were new to him. So were the players. The Lions were so accustomed to the piloting of Clark that he had become as much a part of a contest as a headgear. Under such circumstances the regulars didn't click with Pug. In the meantime the old master was taking an awful beating. Dutch has been the heaviest calibered gun in the Lion attack. And as such he has been pounded mighty hard by the toughest teams Jn the league. Dutch Absorbs Punishment It isn't easy for even a youth to keep going at top speed after having become a target. Dutch has absorbed more punishment this season than any other Lion back. To halt Clark meant to knock out 50 per cent of the Lion offense. Coach Potsy brought the youthful Vaughan along slowly. Oldtlme Lions became accustomed to the pilot's way. Now they have decided to go to town with him. They have tremendous confidence in his ability to handle punts. He'll tote the ball with the best in the league and he'll do his share of the blocking. Now he is a sharp shooting passer. This has become apparent to all Lions by means of practice drills designed by the coach to give the entire squad confidence in Vaughan. Pug has sold himself now as a signal caller. So he'll start It will take a Please Turn to Page 16 Column 8 The Second N' OTHING changes more rap idly than the fortunes of a football coach. When they fit their material Into a winning team they ride the heights. When the material does not come up to expectations and the team loses a majority of its games or worse yet. Its big major game there is no time lost in starting the anvil chor- " From time to time I have pointed out examples of coaches who had been looked upon as "miracle men" bv the students and alumni suddenly being eased out of their positions and looked upon as men who no longer had the "touch to produce winning combinations. rr!i Parade who ran up something like 600 points in 600 minutes of play. Yost, now athletic director at Michigan, has- followed football closer than anyone I know since he played tackle for West Virginia and Lafayette 40 years ago. "Just what Is the main difference between the football of 194)0-1905 and the football of today?" I asked Yost "In the first place," the Michigan director said, "football 30 years ago was far rougher than it is today. It was a part of football to be trough to use hands and knees and elbows any way you could to batter up or batter down the opposition to rough and knock down the kicker to do about everything except slug with the closed fist, and even that wasn't always penalized. "Football In those days was a man-to-man fight on .the field. Al most anything went. Today the rules have changed most of this. There are penalties for clipping for piling on for roughing the kicker for striking with the palm of the hand for anything that looks like intentional roughness. That's one big difference." The Same Old Game (jT i rHAT about all the innova-VV tions the spinners and the reverses?" I asked. "What innovations?" Yost asked in return. "We had spinners and reverses and double reverses in 1901. We had laterals. We had split bucks. We had everything the game has today except the forward pass. "There isn't anything new in football. Don't let anybody tell you that. There are 50 good football players today to one in 1901 50 good teams and 50 good coaches to one dating back that far. But the outstanding stars of today are no better than the stars of 30 or 35 years ago. "Ill tell you what I mean I've never seen a running back better than Heston a 190-pnunder who could beat Archie Hahn at 50 yard I've never seen a surer or fiercer tackier than Nell Know, 200 pounds of speed and power. "And take the kickers you can move from California to Massachusetts, and from Minnesota to Tulane and you can't even touch that old-time bunch O'Dea of Wisconsin Herschberger of Chicago Sweeley and Garrels of Michigan- George Brooke of Pennsylvania Eckersall of Chicago Butterworth of Yale I could name you a dozen. "O'Dea on a drop-kick hit the cross bar at Yale 64 yards away how many are trying 64-yard drop- kicks today? "Brooke of Pennsylvania was one of the greatest kickers I ever saw He could kick into a bucket at 55 yards. "In those days there were only a few outstanding teams three or four in the East three or four in the Mid-West none in the South none on the West Coast. We left a snowstorm In Michigan in 1901, went to California, played 11 men at 90 degrees and beat Stanford 49 to 0." How Good Were They? I TALKED with Yost about Heston and the old Michigan group How good were they? "I'll give you just one angle on Heston," Yost said. "He weighed 190 pounds. Playing against Chicago on a field covered with ice and an inch of snow, he reached the open and jumped clean over Walter Eckersall, who dived for his knees. Figure that one out "In that same period Buffalo beat a strong Yale team 5 to 0. We beat the same Buffalo team 105 to 0. That was the year I let Buffalo use all the substitutions they wanted to use. I found one Buffalo hack sitting on our bench. 'Get over with your own team,' I told him. 'Nothing doing,' he said.

After deliberating only eight minutes, an Anne Arundel County Circuit Court jury today acquitted Charles Brown, alias Woodtrap, forty-six-year-old Negro groom, of a charge resulting from an attempt to drug a race horse at the Laurel race track Oct. 17. Army Gridder Is Dead HONOLULU, Oct. 28 (A. P.) Millard Hunter, star end for the 13th Artillery football team of the United States Army, died yesterday from a brain hemorrhage received in a football game Saturday. Guess But today I can't help thinking of the laugh Ossie Solem must be enjoying out at Iowa City where the Hawkeyes are stampeding tiieir way to the front rank in the Western Conference. One can't help but feel that Solem is thoroughly enjoying the sudden change that has come in the tides and affairs of the Iowa eleven. And more particularly the chance that agnin nas caused me toiiowers of the once down trodden Hawk-eyes to shout his name along the football front. hesn than a year rso Solem was considered a victim of an enraged alumni that demanded a winner at all costs. The word had gor.e the rounds that Solera might kae been a good Starts Gerald Walker Leads League Pinch Hitters Batted AQ2 in Clutch; Tigers Made Best Mark as Team NEW YORK, Oct. 28 Although not rated 'a regular due to his erratic base running, Gerald Walker swung a potent bat in the pinches for the World Champion Detroit Tigers to show the way to the pinch hitters in the American League during the past season. Walker made 13 trips to the plate as a pinch-hitter, according to the official averages released today, and on six occasions he came through with a safe blow for a pinch-hit average of .462. Although the Detroit outfielder chalked up the highest average, he was forced to yield to Ralph Wine-garner. Cleveland hurler, and Ed mund (King) Miller, Boston vet eran who started the season as a coach, when it came to the most telling blows. Winegarner Won 6 Games Winegarner hit only .320 as a inch-hitter but won six games by elting out six singles, a double and a home run. Miller won five games for the Red Sox while answering 45 calls. He drove in nine runs with 13 hits. The Boston veteran had an able assistant in Wes Ferrell, who when not pitching won four games with pincn hits. Altogether, the Red Sox won 12 games by hits in the "clutches," five of which went to the credit of Robert Moses Grove. In addition to Winegarner. Ferrell was the only pitcher to hit a home run in the pinches. Tigers Go to Town Leon Goslin. Lvn Rowe. Charley Gehringer, Mickey Cochrane and Walker each won a game for Detroit while acting as substitute batsmen. Goslin had been benched for weak hitting. Detroit was play ing st. ixmis on May 31. The score was 3 to 3 in the ninth. The bases were tilled with Clifton ready to bat. Cochrane sent in Goslin and he doubled, sending three Tigers across tne plate. Detroit pinch hitters were the only ones to compile a batting aver age Detter than .300 with a mark of .323. New York was second with .261, followed by Boston. St. Louis, Philadelphia. Washington. Cleveland ana Chicago. St Louis employed the most pinch batsmen, while St. Louts and Boston were tied with the most hits 29. St. Louis made the most two-base hits and Boston drew the most passes and drove in the most runs with pinch hits. Only two pinch homers were hit this year as compared with nine in ism, unly 88 runs were driven in as against 113 in '34. AMERICAN LEAGUE (rinch Illttrri at hut 10 tlmM or more Pluyer. Club.

Addition of 10.000 seats at a cost of $500,000 will increase the total regular seating capacity of the park to approximately 40,000.

The center field uncovered bleachers also will be double decked and will extend from the flag pole in center field along Trumbull to the By W. coach at somp other school, but that ne didn't fit into the Iowa picture. These critics pointed to the records. They phouted to the skies that Solem had three years in which to establish a system and had failed. Yes, sir, he was ticketed to travel the same road that Eurt Inpwerson, another good coach, was forced to travel when Iowa failed to gain high ranking in thA P.iff Ten race. As Ute as lat spring I 'poke to a Western Conference coach who had ju.-t been deposed and during the conversion asked him where he intended to lisht and continue his football teaching.

P.) The conquering Spartans of Michigan State, back in their winning stride after their sole costly stumble, girded today for a Jack-the-Giant-Killer stand against Temple at Philadelphia Saturday. There was no rest for Head Coach Charley Bachman's Spartans today as he prepared them for a game In which they will give away from 30 to 35 pounds to the man against an undefeated foe. He cancelled the usual Monday lay-off for men who saw most of the work in the, previous Saturday's game and sent them booming through a hard workout that emphasized forward passes. The Spartans tried out their new backfield huddle system Saturday, when they beat Washington University, of St Louis, 47 to 13. and liked it so well they will use it exclusively against Temple. The backs go into their own huddle to receive the quarterback's signals, then the team lines up and the play is called again by the quarterback for the benefit of the line. The system is employed because the cheers of the crowd and the playing of the band Please Turn to Page 16 Column 3 new right field stands. The lower deck of this stand will be sold as pavilion scats and the upper deck, uncovered, will constitute the bleachers. No change is planned in the left field pavilion. The distance from home plate to the new bleachers in right field will be 327 feet, 40 feet shorter than the 367 feet to the present right fence.

Walter 1 It used to be Irish against Irish when football teams from Catholic schools met It's Polish against Polish now and that realization has come to Capt Ed Michaels, Villa-nova College guard, right in time to prevent him from repeating a serious error when the Main Liners tangle with University of Detroit for the second time at Villanova next Saturday. "Pomoz mi dostac tego chlopaka (Help me get this man)," growled Capt. Michaels to his right tackle Saturday afternoon. Big Jordan Oliver nodded his head and looked across the line of scrimmage at a chubby little U. of D. guard. "O tak, O tak (Oh yeah!)," murmured Francis Kondraski to himself as he eyed the two big linemen who were quietly agreeing in Polish on the manner In which they wouia carry mm out or the following play. , Stopper Is Stopped The Villanova center snapped the ball, the two big Villanova linemen charged Kondraski. The husky little Titan charged himself, met the driving bare-headed Michaels with a two-handed Jolt that sent him sprawling off balance, then sidestepped Oliver and took one stride "behind the Villanova line. There he made a head-on tackle of Halfback Andy Stopper, who went down for a two-yard loss. Capt. Edward Michaels, of Villanova, couldn't understand how this reserve guard, who had replaced the veteran Sig Andrusking, could do that sort of thing against him. "What's your name, boy?" he asked Kondraski. The Titan shook his head and said nothing. Capt Michaels still didn't understand. He and Right Tackle Olivar conferred seriously Jn Polish. They kept conferring In Polish all afternoon as Kondraski, apparently anticipating every one of their moves, crossed them at every turn. Did His Jaw Drop But Michaels did understand It when the game was over and he was congratulating his Titan foe on his part in Detroit's 19 to 15 triumph. "Now what's your name, boy?" asked Michaels, slapping the little guard's shoulder. There was no secret about it. Other coaches also eyed the Iowa job snd made no pretense at hiding the conditions at Iowa City and the fact that Oss;e Solem was "on the way out." But as I pointed out nothing changes more rapidly than the fortunes of a football coach. It is only six months since the rardg were stacked against Solem. But look at him now. He's tUa -... tuZ Wuwic ?-tC of Iowa. Why? Just hecaue he found the combination for which he had been hunting af the Hawkeye institution and the team is on its way to make a battle of it for the Western Conference championship. The first that Solem and Iowa eleven was on l'f way cimo several weeks when GamesiFml Entries ' i t "Kondraski," replied the sophomore from Muskegon. Michaels' jaw dropped a foot. Realization came to his eyes. "You're Polish, too," he said accusingly. "How did you guess it?" taunted the grinning Kondraski. That was Mistake No. 1 for Michaels, one that Detroit probably will not be able to capitalize on this week. It would not have been an error at all had not Kondraski, one of the Titan linemen of Polish descent, been fnt in to play directly opposite the big Main Liner. Johnny Wleczorek, the U. of D. fullback, is of Polish blood but he plays too far back to have overheard Michaels. The Villanova cantaln hurled a few Polish gibes at Wleczorek during the game but Johnny paid no attention. Victim of 'Sucker Flay' Mistake No. 2 by Michaels was the most serious.

"1 can pitch major league baseball for at least two or three years longer," Marberry said in a statement to the Ltibbock Avalanche, "and I think I shall have the opportunity to try It next season. My arm is in great shape, the best in three years." Marberry said he was negotiating with three American League clubs but did not name them. Marberry, who pitched last for Detroit, end Mrs. Marberry are visiting here. "Umpiring is okay," he said, "but I'm too crazy about playing the game and I miss the association with ball players. I can umpire If I can't play, but I'd rather play." Laugh at Critics the Hawkeyes encountered the famed Colgate squad and marched from the field triumphant 12 to 6. Beating Colgate was no eav task.

A. U. The wheels were set in motion yesterday afternoon for the mammoth event that annually develops the leading amateur boxers in the country. The big tournament will reach its peak on the night of Feb. 19 in the ring at Olympla when the champions are picked to go to the Tournament of Champions In Chicago, the Inter-City meet and th International Golden Gloves championships next Spring In Chicago. Entries for this year's tournament will open on Dec. 2. No date has yet been set for the closing of entries or the start of the preliminary rounds. These details will be announced later. But the word that the amateurs have been waiting for is the fact that Golden Gloves time I here again and that entries will open In a few weeks. To Aid Children As was the case a year ago, all proceeds of the big tournament will be turned over to The Free Press Fresh Air Fund to provide vacations at Sylvan Lake for the under-privileged children of the City. Last year sufficient funds were obtained to construct several new cottages in order that a greater number of children could be cared for during the hottest months of the summer. The tournament this season will offer many opportunities for the young boxers as most of last year's champions have turned to the professional ranks. Included in this group are Al Nettlow, featherweight titlcholdcr; Dave Clark, middleweight champion: Clinton Bridges, light heavyweight crown holder, and Lorenzo Pack, heavyweight titleholder. It was this group of champions that conquered the Italians in the International championships and made of the Free Press team, the strongest in the country. Field Is Wide Open The other champions who will hn eligible for this year's meet are Patsy Urso, the Tournament of Champion flyweight king; Edgar waung Dantamweight, Eddie Futch, lightweight and Al Strong, welter weight champion. oome of these have grown into higher classes, so that the field is open for championships in most every division. According to Charles H. Eren- nan, secretary of the Michigan A. A. U., the entry this year should reach a new peak. Since lata in the summer the boxers have been looking forward to the Golden Gloves and the advent of the Industrial association will lend added interest to the tournament But the long wait is nearing Its end. And the A. A. U., which is sponsoring the event this year, will have its machinery ready so that the flood of entries can start flowing on Dec. 2.

As a result he lost the only fall of his hour and a half match with Walter Roxy, of Detroit Twice Rubl dropped Roxy with his kicks but when the Hungarian let fire a third time Roxy ducked. With no Roxy there to check his progress through the air, Rubi crashed to the mat so hard he was stunned. The rest was easy for the Detroiter, who pounced on his hapless opponent and pinned him. Trying for the next fall, Rubi almost evened it when he had Roxy In a bad way through flying scissors, but the bell ending the match saved the Detroiter.
