Hard Work in Preparation For Wis-
consin Game Begins-Scrubs Score
On "Varsity-Badger Plays Are
Mystifying-James Is Injured.
Qoach Yost began his active prep-
aration for the Wisconsin game at
yesterday's secret practice, and the
result was the fiercest scrimmage
seen on Ferry Field this year. The
nien showed the effects of their hardt
work when they trooped into the gym-
nasium, as several of the 'Varsity
players sustained severe bruises in
the mix-up. No let up in the stiff
practice is in sight, as Coach Yost has
declared that nightly scrimmages will
be in order until the Wisconsin game
As soon as the men came on the
field they were lined up for the kick-
off, with the scrubs in possession of
the ball. Boerman, who is showing up
well in the kicking game, went to full-
back position on the regulars. On the
scrub's kick-off the ball was passed
to Boerman for a return. This meth-
of procedure was repeated time after
time, and the new man invariably
made good.
The teams then lined up for the
scrimmage, and the scrubs were given
possession of the ball on the 'Varsity's
15-yard line. The Wisconsin forma-
tions, used by the scrubs, worked ad
nirably against the regular defense,
and six touchdowns were scored in
forty minutes of play. The 'Varsity
forwards had trouble in solving the
Badger plays, and on very few occa-
sions were more than three downs
necesary to cover five yards. The
teams linedt up for the scrimmage as
'Varsity. Scrubs.

James sustained a sprained wrist in
the O. S. U. contest, and while the
injury is not severe, it will probably
keep the quarterback out of this
week's scrimmages, and may cause
his absence from the Wisconsin game.
Captain Redden is suffering with a
stiff neck and remained on the side
lines during the scrimmage. Curtis.
the only regular missing from the
line-tip, was attending classes.
That the Wisconsin game will be
a battle royal daily becomes more
evident. The usual "bear" stories
which come from Madison, telling of
accidents to star players, and poor
physical condition of the squad, may
be taken at a discount. Barring Bain.
Wisconsin will put her strongest
eleven in the field on Saturday, and
the star punter of the Badgers may
improve sufficiently to play at least
a part of the game.
More likely reports are to the effect
that Wisconsin has given up hopes
of circling the Michigan ends, and
will depend upon her plunging back
field for gains. The Badger squad
will include nine back-field players,
eight of whom will surely be given
the opportunity to show their mettle
against the Wolverines.

Arrives Thursday and Will Give a Se-
vies of Lectures to History
Prof. Andrew C. McLaughlin will be
back in Ann Arbor next Thursday, to
begin a series of lectures on the. sub
ject of "Early American Constitution-
al History." This course of lectures
will be delivered before the class in
constitutional history, ttt all visitors
who are interested in the subject are

The coming game between Wiscon-
sin and Michigan promises to be quite
a society event. Among the promi-
nent people who will see ti ,game
are, Presidents Northrop and Angell
who will occupy seats together; Pres
ident Ashley, of the Ann Arbor road
with a party of t wenty-five; Senator
Murfn and Charles P. Downey, who
have each engaged two boxes; Larr y
E. Grosh, of Toledo, the famous half
bak, and City At t orney Thos. Carney
of Ann Arbor, each tne box. The D
U. S., Toledo High School, and Michi
gan Military Academy teams, with
large numbers of their followers, will
also attend the game, andt a delega-
tion of one hundred from Lansing
have engaged seats. Althoughit a great
number of seats have been sold there
are still large numbers of good seats
inside the. thirtyive yard line left.
It is desired that every freshman be
presentt At the meeting to be held to
day in room C, University Hall, imme-
diiately after the dismissal of the II
oclock classes at noon. Important
business is to be brought i before the
meeting, which will occupy but a
short time.
New ork University has taken a
rigid stand in favor of pure amateur
ism in sport in dismissing Robert P
Wilson, heat coach of the football
team, and Assistant Coach Brown.
The two were dropped withoutnotice
as a result of an investigation intoi
the playing of Louis Cohn, an alleged
law student.
Cohn was induced by the coaches
to join the team oin account of his
known footbail ability. He paid his
matriculation fee but did not pay his
advance tuition as required by the
rules, nor did he attend classes. Af-
ter one week's playing on the team,
in which he participated in a game
against Wesleyan College, Cohn's in-
eligibility was discovered and the dis
missal of the coaches followed.
In preparation for the game with
Wisconsin Saturday a singing meeting.
will be held today at 5 p. in. in Uni
versity Hall. It is evident from the
failure of the songs last Saturday that
practice is needed on them. Wiscon-
sin is noted for its good stging, and
as many Wisconsin rooters are ex-
peted at the game, we must not let
our reputation suffer from poor sing-
ing. If permission can be obtained
from President Angell, a big mass
meeting will be held Friday night at
7 p. m. It is planned to have mem-
hers of the team present, Coach Yost
and the band.

Final Game in the Interclass Series
Will Be Played Saturday.
By defeating the '06 Medics the '06
Engineers are entitled to meet the '04
Laws for the class championship.
Only one half, of 15 minutes duration,
was played in the game yesterday,
and the final score was 24 to 0. The
Medics offered but slight opposition
to the plunges of the Engineers'
heavy backs. The Engineers played
a fast bucking game, with occasional
end runs. Their team works well to-
gether, showing the effects of much
practice. This is the first time the
Engineers have been in the finals for
the class championship in football,
and the department will probably turn
out in full force Saturday to help the
team win by rooting. 'The Engineer
and Law teams are evenly matched
and the game will be a hard fought
one, to say the least. The final game
each year is generally the time for
great departmental spirit to be shown.
especially when the Laws play. It is
to be hoped that the many accustomed
"stunts" will not be omitted this year,
such as the banners, costumes and
noise-producing implements.

Arbor to attend the game.. While here
they will be the guests of the senior
engineerimg class. A meeting of the
class was held Monday, and the fol-
owing committee appointed to go to
Detroit to meet the visitors: D'Ooge
leller and Hogan.
If possible the Wisconsin engineers
will stay here Saturday evening, and
attend a banquet at Pennycook's as

out-of-town engineers will arrive in
the city Saturday morning. They will
be shown about the Campus and al-
lowed to inspect the new engineering
building. In the afternoon they will
attend the game in a body, and if
possible, will be on hand for the ban-
quet in the evening.
Horace V. Butterworth, athletic di-
rector at the Northwestern Univer-
sity, has sent in his resignation to
the University Regents. As a reason
for resigning, he says the system of
management at the University is not
in sympathy with his ideas, and the
students do notu seem to take to him
very well.
A plan is under foot for the arrange-
ment of a four-cornered Sawn tennis
tournament between teams of Har-
vard, Yale, Columbia and Princeton
to take during the early part of next
vard, Yale, Columbia and Princeton to
take place duringtheearly part of next
spring. The contest is not intended
to interfere in any way with the regu-
lar intercollegiate championship tour-
nament which takes place in the fall.
As planned, the contest is to run off
in this manner. Dual matches are to
take place between Harvard and Yale,
and between Columbia and Princeton.
The winner of both matches will then
meet in a final for the championship
of the four colleges.
There will be a meeting of the Daily
Editorial Board at 12:45 today in the
Campus office. It is necessary that
all members of the board be present.
