there were about bso loyal Mich-
igan students who were not intimi-
dated by the damp weather on Sat-
urday. The special train consisted
of fourteen coaches well filled. One
of these coaches was reserved for the
"co-eds,'' and there were about
fifty of them who demonstrated their
patriotism by braving the storm.
Among the ladies and "co-eds"
were Mrs. Brown, Mrs. Dr. Tyler,
Mrs. Nightingale, of Chicago, Misses
Mills, Randolph, Dean, Dunster,
Bement, Study, and the Misses
Duffy, and the Misses Douglass.
Michigan was taken into Cornell's
camp to the tune of 58 to 12. The
grounds were favorable to rapid and
large scoring, the runner having a
decided advantage. The main
cause of Michigan's defeat was the
very ine blocking of Cornell's rush-
ers. Their line, when the backs
would turn the ends, was almost iso-
pregnable. Cornell foundit was
seless to buck Michigan' s centre,
aid abaudoned the attempt after a
fwi trials. When Michigan was
able to break through Cornell's line
of blockers, the runner had gained
the necessary five yards or more.
Cornell played a superb team game,
lining up, snapping-back, passing
and running like clock-work, and
they came down on Michigan's rush-
ers something like a whirlwind. The
game served as a valuable experience
to Michigan, as it revealed our weak
points, and gave us an object les-
son in eastern foot-ball. The finest
individual work for Cornell was
done by Osgood, whose end riu-
sing was always productive of large
gains. Johanson, the left tackle
and captain, also did effective work
in carrying the ball over the line.
Michigan's eleven hasgood reason
to congratulate itself upon scoring
twelve points. The touch-downs
were won on their merits, the first
by a brilliant individdal run, and the
second by superb rush line work.
