Their Attempt to Cast Discredit Up-
on Our Teem.
That the newspapers of the west are
not to be depended upon to stand loyal-
ly by the representatives of their sec-
tion of the country has been effectively
demonstrated by the events of the past
few days. The Chicago papers in gen-
eral and. the Times-Herald in particu-
lar seemed to do all they could to cast
discredit upon the achievements of
Michigan's team last Saturday. , It was
to these papers we looked for at least
a square deal and favorable comment
upon the game that our team put up.
But in this we were disappointed and it
has been the pleasure of the eastern
press and especially the papers.-of
Philadelphia to place credit where
credit was due and to tell of just how
great Michigan's game was. The com-
ments from them are all in praise of
the work of the Wolverines and it
seems to be the concensus of opinion
that Michigan had the better team and
deserved to twite.
The interviews given helow by vari-
ous members of the team and the
coaches throw a new light on the play-
ing of some of the men, especially Cun-
ningham and France who seemed to be
singled out by the Chicago press either
for censure or a severe letting alone.
"There is nothing to say that the pa-
pers havn't published. We deserved to
win and nothing but the hardest kind
of luck kept us from it. The goals we
missed were comparatively easy. The
game has served to show us the points
wherein the team is weak and give us
time to strengthen them. Wait for an-
other year. But I wouldn't care if we
didn't play east again for ten years. It
is too hard work for too little glory."
"There is not much to say. The metn
are all in good shape, there being no
injuries during the game, and were all
out to practice this afternoon. It was
an awfully hard trip and the men were
tired out; they were really in need of
rest. Cunningham outplayed Overfield
at every point. He was down on kicks
with the ends and did magniicent work
tackling. They didn't gain much
through him, most of their plunges be-
ing made into the left side of the line."
"I have played in lots of games with.
Cunningham but Saturday he played
the best of all these times. In my
opinion he far outplayed Overfield
though the latter gave him a hard
fight. Especially, in the first half, hisĀ°
work was wonderful and far ahead of

his opponent's, and in the second half Neo Homoeopathic Hospital.
he more than held his own. I think Courtesy of the Detroit Free Press.

we outplayed Pennsy and this seemed
to be the opinion of the players, specta-
tors and officials. Both sides fumbled
but ours were more lastly than theirs.
Penn had the luck from the start, wi.-
ning the toss, and it seemed that they
got the best of the decisions from the
officials, not but that they meant to do
the right thing but he showed lack of
judgment on two or three occasions.
But I never played with two better
men as officials. The crowd, too, treat-
ed us schite. The tuen all pulled to-
gether, especially the veterans, and the
team work w-as fine. McDonald played
a fine game and of course you know
McLean did. The interference took
him past the line and then 'he went in
for the most part alone for his long
runs. France played a great game,
though the papers hav hardly men-
tioned him. Ile played Hare to a
standstill, keeping him out of nearly
every play. Neil Snow and Street also
did fine work. Any little thing would
have changed the whole affair. Once
the measurement on the fourth down
showed that Penn had gained a single
inch over their necessary five yards.
On several other occasions it was near-
ly as, close."
"We should have won for we certain-
ly outplayed them, and it is a great
disappointment to all of us that we did
not. The Chicago papers seem inclined
to roast the boys but it is certainly un-
deserved and you have only to look at
the Philadelphia papers to get the true
account. Cunningham was the whopl:
thing at the middle of the line and far
outplayed Overfield. France, too, put
up a great game. Two bad fumbles
lost the game for us, both being made
inside their twenty-yard line. Penn
scarcely made their five yards in three
downs but the measurement always
showed from one to six inches over thie
desired distance.
"At the end of the first half the team
was worn out, so tired were they from
the effects of the trip, and when Penn
made their last touchdown with but 55
seconds left to play Michigan was sim-
ply done up. The long journey was the
cause of it all. The boys put up a
plucky fight. I don't think Pennsylva-
nia can play as good a game of foot
ball a the westerners. Time and again
we ran them down the field as ,it they
were prep. school players. Our inter-
ference was beautiful and it alone as
responsible for the gains I was enabled
to make. Fumbles and off side playi
lost the game for us. Cunningham?
He was a team in himself and out-
played Overfield two to one."

The wails of the new Homeopathic
Hospital now being erected will be field
stone to the top of the first story and
gray pressed brick above. The roof is
to be of red tile. The building will
have a frontage of 175 feet and the
north wing will extend back 130 feet.
In front the building wil be three
stories high besides the basement, and
the north wing, containing the main
operating room, will be five stories
The plans provide for six wards. They
are a men's medical, a men's surgical,
a women's medical, a women's surgical,
an obstetrical, anjd a children's ward.
Besides these there will be operation
rooms for major cases and for diseases
of the eye, several private rooms, and
recovery rooms. The anaesthetical
rooms have been arranged for and a
lecture room for general medical, clin-
ical, and demonstration courses. A
large sun room will be connected with
each of the wards.
The larger operating room, which will
be at the further end of the north wing,
is to be finished in marble and the fin-
ishing of the operating room for dis-
eases of the eye will be white tile. The
architects are Messrs. Samuel McC.
Stanton and Henry P. Kirby of New
York city.
The 'hospital has been planned for a
normal capacity of one hundred pa-
tients, although it can be made to ac-
commodate 140.
The contract price for the erection of
the building is $4t.670. This does not
include heating, lighting and ventilat-
ing fixtures, nor the hospital equipment.
The site for the hospital was a gift to
the University from the city of Ann
Arbor, which purchased it at a cost o"
$17,000. The large two-story brick
dwelling house already built will be
used as a nurses' home.
