SENIOR LITS CHAMPIONS.
Defeat the Senior Las 12 to 0 in
a Houh Contest.
The senior lits defeated the senior
laws on Saturday by the decisive
score of 12 to 0, thus winning the
class championship for 1898-99. The
game was played on a slippery, mud.
dy field, making fast playing and
end runs almost an impossibility.
But in spite of the unfavorable con-
dition of the field Richardson, lit,
made several very pretty end runs.
The game was extremely rough
throughout, and several players were
injured. Dr. Rabethge said, "It
was one of the roughest games I ever
The fact that the field was so slip-
pery probably contributed largely to
the injuries, because the players
could not get a good foothold.
Egan, Goodbread, Anderson and
Allen, of the laws, and Jones and
Beath, of the lits, were injured.
Jones and Beath had their shoulders
wrenched, but are not seriously hurt.
Allen had his knee injured.
The feature of the game was line
bucking by the fast lit backs and
the good work of their line, enabling
them to make repeated gains of from
five to tet yards. The laws were
unable to stop the swift rushes of
Richardson played a star gase,
making several long runs. The laws
were out of condition and their work
was at times very ragged.
The laws had the kick-off, the lits
securing the ball on their 25-yard
line. They started line bucking for
a steady gain of-30 yards when they
lost the ball on downs. The laws
were unahle to gain and punted to
the lit 4yard line. Fro this point
the lits carried the ball clear across
the gridiron by steady line-bucking
from three to 10 yards at a time, for
a touchdown after 15 minutes play
and kicked goal. The laws kicked
off again and the lits had carried the
leather to the laws 40-yard line when
time was called.
The lits kicked off the second half
to the laws' 30-yard line. Laws
punted back 35 yards. The lits then
plowed through the line to the laws'
20-yard line. On the 20-yard line
Cooper and Tryon opened up a big
hole through tackle letting Richard-
son through for a beautiful 20 yard
run for a touchdown. Goal was
kicked making the score 12 to 0.
Time was called with the ball in the
center of the field in the lits' posses-

WALTER CAMP ROASTED.
The Eastern Critics Opinion of
Western Football Censured.
Walter Canp, writing for the Chi-s
cago Times-Herald of a recent date,t
said: "In the season's football one1
team stands out prominently above
the rest and that team is Harvard.
Undefeated, but more than unde-
feated. The team whose advance has
been steady, whose play in all de-1
partments has been uniformly good,£
a team relying on no one style of1
play, but able to shift their game as,
circumstances indicated, and finally, a
team with no discovered or discernible
wsskness." He then proceeded to1
criticise the work of Princeton,
Pennsylvania, Yale, and Cornell
while he passed over the work of the
Western teams with few words evi-
detly considering them unworthy toj
be compared with the teams of the
No sooner had the article of Mr.1
Camp appeared than the football men
of the West, especially the coaches
and trainers of the various college
teams took up the cudgel and gave
expression to some vigorous opinions.
Camp's statement is regarded as
covering only a section, and he is
considered mistaken in trying to pass
judgment on or even mentioning any
other part of the country besides the
Prof. A. A. Stagg: "The Western
game as played this year was as fast
as the Eastern and had more variety.
I am satisfied that either Michigan
or Chicago would have played Har-
vard to a standstill."
Keene Fitzpatrick says: e'Chiti
cago or Michigan could give any of
the Eastern teams all they wanted to
handle in acontest."
Ferbert says: "I think tiat the
material in the West is better than
in the East. Oberlin this year held
Cornell 0 to 0, and Oberlin is a
second rater in the West."
Coach Banard of Northwestern
says: "I think that the West has
football material which Mr. Camp
did not give due credit to, that will
compare favorably with Eastern ag-
gregations. Ihave played against
Houghton Harvard's fullback, to
whom Mr. Camp awards the honor,
but I have never seen hisi equal it

F. H. Clausen, prsidest of the
Western Inter-collegiate Association
thinks that Mr. Camp like many
other easternerspays little attention to
the West and then shows his ignor-
ance in trying to pass judgment upon
them. On the whole it is thought
by experts in the West that Mr.
Camp, not having see ta single
Western game, knows little of te
merits of those teams and his opinion
concerning them is therefore of small

rector of the Lick Observatory, and
who is a graduate of this University
and at one time Assistant Professor
of Astronomy here is in Paris at

Editor U. of M Daily.
I would like to trouble you for
space to air the views of myself and
a "few' other students who are get-
ting decidedly tired of tin-pan col-
lections. In the first place I want to
state that I am a member of the
Athletic Association, and also have
contributed whenever called upon to
do so this fall, but I am one of a
large number who are asking them-
selves whether it costs more to sup-
port tin-pan collections or pay fees
and be a student at the University.
By actual count the hat has been
placed under my nose five times this
fall for support of the University
Band-that is to take the band to
Chicago, and the most tantalizing
part of the whole thing is that the
tin pan is shoved under my nose at a
football game at the most inoppor-
tune time, when some exciting play
is on. For Heaven's sake, when we
pay our money freely and patronize
every game and take in every excur-
sion, allow us to rest in peace and
enjoy what we have come to see.
The Athletic Association will per.
sist in begging and begging to scrape
together $50 or $100 to pay for some-
thing which is a legitimate expense,
such as taking a band to Chicago,
while they will pay without question,
I understand, a bill of "$1,000 for
shoes' which one of its managers is
said to have tned in last year. This
is rotten iatte extreme if so, and I
for one demand that a change be
made in this constant begging policy.
We are all willing to give our share,
but we are ntt all willing to be hum-
bugged by the whining cry of "in
the hole." We are not in the hole
sow and I for one amelooking to see
whtere swe will be next fall when
school opens. I see by your paper
that nosepwesare toIshaveya e'collec-
tion" to get some souvenirs for the
players in the Chicago game. What
next? 1Iocppiose I sill be sesigated
a e 'knocker" but I ame oe of a large
number tien, for tte "tinpan" col-
lections will not be tolerated, if the
students have good sense. Had the
batd sot gone to Cicago te man-
agemeettco ei have ired a bans as
last year and paid more for three
hours work at the game than the
whole trip cost for the student band.
Give us an annual fall collection,
then in the name of good sense give
us a rest. DEAD BROKE.
Steckle Elected Captain.
Allen Chubb Steckle, '01 M., was
unaninously elected football captain
for next year, at a meeting of the
players held Saturday afternoon.
Caley declined to be a candidate as
lie does not expect to return next
year. Steckle is from Freeport, Mich.
Last year he played on his class team
being ineligible to the 'Varsity. Be-
fore coming here he captained the
Olivette team during one of its most
successful seasons. This season he
has played a great game at tackle,
especially distinguishing himself in
the Chicago game.}
