STILL THEY ARE COMING
MORE NEW MEN WERE OUT AT
'Varsity Went Right Through Re-
serves at First, but Latter Braced
Up-Mention of Some of the Good
The football practice is showing
steady improvement' every day, al-
though there is of course room for a
good deal more. - Particular attention
has been paid to the work of the backs
this week, and they are gradually com-
ing together according to the notions
of Captain Henninger and Coach Mc-
The 'Varsity lined up as follows in
yesterday's practice: Center, Carr;
guards, Henninger and Raikes;
tackles, Yont and Villa; ends, Hutchin-
son and Tryon; quarter-back, Holmes;
half-backs, Richards, Gates and Hol-
lister; full-back, LeRoy and Blooming-
Myers again appeared as center on
the Reserves. There were two new
men in the Reserves' line also who at-
tracted considerable attention They
are brothers by the name of Johnson
and have entered the literary depart-
nent from Iowa. They both stand
about six feet and two inches in height
and weigh about 200 pounds. One is
trying for guard and the other for
tackle, which positions they played
last year at Geneva College, Pennsyl-
Perhaps the most prominent feature
of yesterday's practice was Hollister's
long end runs, which the crowd ap-
plauded heartily. He started off with
one of them and thus enabled the
'Varsity to make its first touchdown
in less than a minute. The other two
touchdowns came harder.
Holmes is showing good improve-
mentat passing the ball back and is
getting into the 'interference better.
Villa and Yont are both running well
with the ball.
On the Reserves Palmer's good tack-'
hng was a feature McKenzie also did
some good punting when the line was
broketi up. Greenleaf played a hard
game at end.
Myers and the Johnson brothers
were added to the list at the training
Schedule For Reserves.
A regular schedule is being trade
out for the Reserves, just as for the
'varsity. Two games have already
been secured, one with the Normal
School eleven Saturday, October 12,
and the other with the Michigan Mil-
itary Academy eleven at Pontiac or
Orchard Lake. These have been defi-
nitely secured, and Manager Baird is
arranging for others.
An Observer of the Practice Writes
of the Men.
The football team of the Univer-
sity of Chicago has been in training
ever since August 25. Candidates for
the team are given daily practice on
Marshall Field from 4 to G.
The ragged points in the team have
been carefully watched by the coach-
ers during the practice games with.

when they lined up against the star
aggregation from the Chicago Athletic
Club last Saturday the only noticeable
weak spot was full back, which Carr

Phil. Allen, the famous Williams
player, is taking post graduate work
and will play center. He is said to
be the superior of any man in the
West with the exception of Stevenson
of the C. A. C. "Old War Horse'
Allen will captain the team and play
right guard, which position he has
filled for several years.
There are seveal promising candi-
dates for left guard, but this far Ruhil-
koetter seems to have the best of it.
Flint will play left tackle and Wil-

At the beginning of the season con-
siderable anxiety was felt about the
possibility of securing a quarter-back,
but Henry Clarke, the famous pitcher
and all-around ball player, has shown
up so well in practice that he is re-
garded as a fixture. He passes the
ball quickly and is a heady player.

Butterworth has had charge of the

STRONG SCHOOL TEAM
Is the Michigan Military Acadermy
The 'Varsity eleven will again begin
the season with tloe Michigan Military
Academy team tomorrow. In the first
game last year the Orchard Lake boys,
through several flukes, held the 'Var-
sity to a tie, 12-12, and were defeated
two weeks later by a score of 40-4. It
is not expected that the season will
start out in any such way Os it did last
year, however as the mienore in vast-
ly different shape now from that at
the start last year.
The Michigan iilitary Academy his
been putting out strong teams for sev-
eral years. They are coached by Yale
men on the faculty of the academy.
Last year they won the scholastic
championship= of the West by defeat-
ing Shattuck's Institute of 'Minnesotfa
at Chicago. This year a Western In-
terscholastic Football Association is
planned, composed of the Michigan
