Cause for Action Is Not Known-
Yost Leaves for Philadelphia-
Paulty Seat Sale Today,
At least one of Coach Yost's plans
was given a staggering blow when Lehr,
the Escanaba lad who has been playing
sub left half, quit the squad and turned
in his suit. It had been the intention
of the coach to make use of two con-
plete sets of backs in the clash with thee
Quakers, and it appeared to be almost
a certainty that Lehr would win his
"M" in that game. The exact cause for
his quitting the team is not known as
the practice was secret, but it is hinted
that his action came after an exchange
of words with the coach. What effect
the loss of Lehr will have on the plans
for the meeting with Penn is of course
unknown, but at any rate dissension in
the ranks of the eleven on the eve of
the season's last and most important
game can hardly be considered reasont
for much jollification.
For the first time since the return
from Nashville the varsity was given
a real scrimmage with the scrubs. Evens
at that, most of the regulars were kept
out of tlse clash. Schulz was not out
for practice at all, as he has classes on
Thursday afternoon; and Embs, Reins-
child, Rumney, Hammond and Captain
Magoffin were kept ot Ithe sidelines
watching the remainder of the varsity
aided by the understudies execute the
plays which are expected to kill Penn's
Although the entire time is beitg
given to the perfection of thle offense,
Coach Yost decided to test the defensive
power of the team yesterday afternoon,
and accordingly the scrubs were given
the'-ball on the varsity's one-yard line.
M nine attempts to gain the scrubs found
thenmselves hearer their own goal thans
at the beginnitg, but on the tenth at-
tempt the scrub quarterback succeeded
in drawitg it the varsity end and cir-
eltg the bunch for a touchdown. How-
ever, if Penn averages a gain of but onee
yardto ten plays, here will be little faults
found with the Michigan defense.
Signal practice was fast and snappy.
The loafing which has been characteris-
tic of the varsity's play was missing, and
the new plays were run off with speed
and precision. Miller and Whitmire
were given an opportunity to shine at
halfback in the scrimmage, buts sthe
signal practice Allerdice and Douglas
divided right half, while Captaiss Ma-
goffin was it his old place at left half.
Loell was at fullback throughout th e
practice. Two days have elapsed since
a change bas bee made is the Casey-
mbs combnation, and it begins to look
as if the team will go ito the Penn
game without any further changes.
Cutting short the practice, Coach
Yost hurried to the Michigan Central
station yesterday afternoon and took a
fast train for Philadelphia. He will
watch the Quakers this afternoon in
their final workout in preparation fo
he Penn State game, and tomorrow
will be a guest at the game itself. While
he does not expect that the State team
will give Penn an exceptionally hard
game, the coach is satisfied that Penn
will he forced to show enough of her
hand to give him plenty of material to
work upon next week.
Pennsylvania looks good to wits from
Penn State tomorrow by about 16 to o
The prediction is not made from a re-
view of comparative scores, because the
"dope" gives the game to Penn State

without a struggle by a score of from
48 to 60 to o. Of course the reasoning
is absur but it is given for what it is
Penn State won from Cornell, 8 to 6
Cornell beat Princeton, 6 to 5.

w - -

Princetots beat the Indians. 16l to o.
The Carlisle Indians won from Penn,
26 to 6.
But as has been tersely remarked on
several occasions since reformed foot-
ball became fashionable, trying to dope
out results on comparative scores will
soon land a man in the "batty" ward.
Here's hoping Penn wins by a fairly
comfortable score !
The seat sale for the Penn game con-
tinued all day yesterday without muchs
decrease in interest, although before
night there were two or three times
when the ticket sellers were given a
breathing spell for the first time since
Tuesday morning. By night, however,
more than 17,000 seats had been sold,
and about 5,ooo remain to be passed out.
Mail orders are still coming in rapidly,
and Director Baird predicted last night
that the entire lot of seats would be
sold out before the day of the gamee
Today's sale will be for the exclusive
benefit of the ladies of the university
and faculty. There are still several
hundred of the reduced price tickets left
and these will be placed at the disposal
of the faculty members and ladies today.
There is a general misunderstanding to
the effect that one person can today se-
ctre seats for a party of friends, in
order that the party can secure seats
together. However, as this would be
unfair to the next persons in the line.
the association will permit each person
to purchase but one 5o cent seat, and
that upon identification.

ray Wendell will have charge of the

Hte also urged the advisability of util-

such meetings for other purposes than
the generation of football enthusiasm.
