Big Squad Out on Ferry Field Yester-
day-Much Hard Work Yet to be
Done-Scrimmage Today,
The first regular practice of the
University of Michigan football team
went off with a briskness and earnest,
ness that augurs well for a succossfal'
season and on the whole it was a
well pleascd number of students that
trooped home from Ferry F 'td after
Coach Yost's dismissal of th' squad.
Contrary to expectations the ater-
noon's work included a short scrim
rage in which the first team played
wholly on the offensive and proved
able to carry the ball down the field
despite the best efforts of the second

the Qampus.
Today will markr the opening of the
sixty-seventh year of the University,
and it is the general opinion that this
year wiltlbring more students to Ann
Arbor than have ever been here in
the past. It is too early yet to have
any statistics, but those in position to
rknow say that the Freshman class is
much larger this year than last. At
the railroads the baggage is more
ientiful than it has ever been at this
season, and that which came in last
week was greater than ever before on
the week precediag the opening of col
rye Iloge.
The mort notable increase in at-
tendance seems to be in the Engineer-
n Department, and the accommoda-
ions of the old building will be much
too limited to care for the students.
'foThe new building Wi probably be
ready or occupancy some time dur-
ng this year. This will be the finest
builing on the campus, and will have
{; ranle rom ftor work. There are few
changes im this department.
Probably the next in increase will
be the Literary Department, which is
registering an unusually large Fresh-
man class. T'he course in Forestry
has drawn some students from other
colleges, where this curse has been
unsuccessful. The six-year lit-law
course also seems to be more popu-
tar than ever before. A course in the
