The arrival of Big Bill Embs on the
scene of action yesterday varied the
' monotony which has characterized te

and members of te sqtad. Embs has
been expectedl by Coach Yost, hbut so
many reports ad gote ott as to whether
(r not he intended re-entering college
that his returns sas te subject of co-
siderable doubt. Casey has also srittens
that e will reach town withins a day
or two, and by the time the teant goes
op against the Aggies at Lansing, Sat-
urday, it is expected tat Yost will be
able tn present practically the entire
strength of the team that sill face
Penusy and Syracuse in the important
games of tie season.
Coach Yost is still stndecided as to
where he will tse Eambs this fall, bttt
the chances are that te big Escanaban
will be given a chance at end. le

The team that faces Michigan Aggies
ext Saturday will look very different

Tihe annsal fall tennis tosrament
entry list has been posted at Ferry field
anss insications point to a large and

freshmsans players have been seen ott the

at the ominal rate of twety-five cesi

ansd fifty crss per teasm in doubles.
Entries sill be accepted up till Wednes-
say evesisg by Joist H. Price and Paul
A. Leisdy.
At a smeting of last year's team,
Price sas elected captain for the 9g
team. As two of he four men on lass
years teamssand several of the squad
are back, te varity sould be stronger
than ever. Iis o be hoped that a large
entry list is secured, becasse the inter-
est its tennis can be o better furthered
tan by a good fall tournament. The
fall tossrtamntstwill affors great pra-
tice for ihese nsswho eter, and as there
is strosng probability of a good eastern
