Too great credit cannot be given
to Oberlin for the very clean and
gentlemanly manner in which they
played the game, and in this respect
uve think we are entitled to say that
Michigan met them half way. The
game proves beyond question that
Michigan's team is not a slugging
one, and that the blame for com-
mencing the unfair tactics in the
Albion and Olivet games- attaches
entirely to Michigan's opponents.
"Slugging" is not foot-ball, as
played by experienced college men,
and the sooner the lesser Michigan
colleges learn this tact, the sooner
they will gain the respect of college
men generally.{

the ball and pushed it over the line.
The play was greeted by tumultuous
cheering. "What's the matter with
Sherman?" sounded all over the
field just as it did later in the game
for Pearson. Time, 3 minutes. No
goal. i--6 in Michigan's favor. A
minute later the first half closed.
In the second half Oberlin failed
to score and Michigan added TS
points, three touchdowns being made
by Pearson in 12, 13 and 5 minutes
respectively. Dygert kicked three
goals from these touch-downs. The
work of Pearson in this half was the
finest foot-ball seen in Ann Arbor
for many years. The last touch-
down was made ten seconds before
time was called.
