Men Go Through Stiff Workout
in Preparing for This Season's
That Michigan has the hardest task
in winning the western championship
this year that has been faced since the
advent of "Hrry Up" Yost and his
methods is evidenced by the fact that
the coach, although not sending out
any wolf stories, is putting the men
through the hardest kind of training
stunts. Several reasons are assignable
for this state of affairs. Michigan loses
the great and only "Willie" Heston, who
cannot be replaced, and "Babe" Carter.
Coupled with this is the fact that Chi-
cago and Wisconsin both promise to
put much stronger teams in the field
than in previous years. Chicago has an
exceptionally large squad of good vet-
erans to start with, and Wisconsin, with
Phil King back in harness, seems to be
formidable. This does not include the
games with Illinois, Nebraska, Ohio
State, Vanderbilt, Drake and several
others of the smaller colleges who may
be counted on to put up a strong ar-
gument. Taken altogether, Michigan.
has the hardest schedule this year which
any college team has been called upon to
face, at least, in recent years.
In spite of the strength of the'oppon-
ents and the difficult schedule, the pros-
pects of the Maize and Blue are far
from discouraging. With eleven "I"
men back in school as well as a large
number of last year's reserves and other
good men, Coach Yost may easily be
counted upon to put eleven men on
Marshall field November 30 who will
fight every inch for Michigan, and, we
hope, to win.
Captain Norcross looks faster than
ever and is handling punts with accur-
acy. Next comes Frank Longman, the
plunging fullback who made the All-
Western last year and who is thought
by many to be the best fullback on
offensive the west has recently produced
Tom Hammond at half, Schultz at cen-
ter, Schulte at guard, Graham and Cur-
tis tackles, Clark and Harry Hammond
ends, and Stuart and Weeks, ends and
halves, are the other "M" men back.
Besides these veterans, there are Car-
rels, who is out for end or half, and
who from present indications ought to
make good; Rheinchild, the husky Cal-
ifornian, who will probably be played
at tackle, Graham going to guard; Pat-
rick, tackle and end, who showed up
well in the minor games last year; Love,
the tackle from Missouri, who looked
good toward the latter part of last sea-
son; Magoffin, the fast little half;
Pierce, the fullback; Workman, half and
end; Miller, guard; Rumney, a fast end
and half; Becker, last year's sub-quar-
ter, and Ackerman, tackle, who reported
yesterday for the first time. Barlow,
the quarterback of last year's J law
team, and who burned up the class team
league last year, is trying to make the
varsity, with his speed, bids fair to make
an excellent showing. Wetmore, an old
Knox man, is out for a halfback posi-
tion and although light is very fast.
Embs, Carey, Newton and Clement of
last year's All-Fresh team, are also out,
but not much of a line can be drawn on
them as yet.
Yesterday about thirty-five men re-
ported for practice and three squads
were run through signal practice. The
varsity lined up with Schultz at center,
Love and Graham guards, Rheinschild,
Curtis and Patrick tackles, Garrels and
Stuart ends, Norcross and Barlow
quarter, Clark and Embs halves, Long-
The coach announced last night that
the team will be given their first scrim-
mage practice tonight at about four
MAGOFFIN BACK IN SCHOOL.
With the arrival of Paul Magoffin
yesterday, the list of last year's football
men who were expected back was com-
pdted, Ackerman having returned short-
ly before. Magoffin was a spectator at
the practice yesterday and will be out
for work today.
It is thought that Tom and Harry
Hammond will also report for work to-
day. Schulte will probably not be out
for practice this week, as he is suffer-
ing from a strained back, received while
playing the assocaition game at Whit-
more Lake Saturday.
The vacancy created by the resigna-
tion of Dr. Stuart, instructor in Greek
and Latin, has been filled by the ap-
pointment of Mr. Charles B. Newcomer,
Ph. D., of the University of Berlin. Dr.
Newcomer is a teacher of experience in
university work and will have charge of
the elementary Greek. He will be glad
to meet any students who may desire
to confer with him every day this week
at 12 o'clock, in room 5, Tappan hall.
University Christian Associations Are
Busy-Carl H. Smith the New
The University Young Men's Chris-
tian association headquarters in McMil-
lan hall and the Young Women's Chris-
tian association in Newberry hall have
been the scenes of some busy times dur-
ing the past week or so. Each place
was made the headquarters for incom-
ing students and everything was done
to aid these in getting rooms and board.
At McMillan hall the lists of boarding
hooses and rooms are compiled duriog
the summer and classified according to
prices and location. This makes it pos-
sible to get some idea of rooms and
houses without the necessity of the us-
ual house to house canvass.
The Y. M. C. A. employment bureau
has been kept extremely busy. More
men than usual have requested work,
with the result that this early there are
already about three applications for
each position open. Last year between
two hundred and f fty and three hun-
dred men were aided in securing em-
The associations' hand-book came out
some time ago and seems to be in great
demand as a reference and memoran-
dum book. The book is somewhat lar-
ger it size than heretofore and contais
several new features, such as a list of
the more popular Michigan songs, dir-

INTO ANN ARBOR
FACULTY FROWNS ON CLARION.
The faculty apparently is unfavorably
inclined toward the new Ann Arbor
publication known as the Michigan Clar-
ion. A student soliciting subscriptions
for this periodical in University hall
Saturday found written on his pad this
notice: "If this is an annual publica-
tion it is prohibited by the faculty."
lowever, H. H. Andrews, 'o,, who is
publishing the paper, says that it will
appear, the faculty notwithstanding.
The Clarion will appear at intervals
of a month throughout the year but it
is not a student publication and is pre-
sumably outside faculty influence. Mr.
Andrews states that the purpose of the
Clarion is to throw a humorous side-
light oo university news, after the man-
ner of the Union County Clarion which
furnished considerable amusement dur-
ilg the county fair last year.
"It is not intended as a knock on uni-
versity affairs," le said yesterday, "but
will merely be a burlesque sheet of cam-
pus news. It will be published in news-
paper style and will be illustrated by
cuts and cartoons."
Victor E. Tuttle, better known as
"Willie" Tuttle, a familiar figure on
State street among a generation of
Michigan students, fell dead of heart
disease September to.
U. of M. Begins Its Sixty-Eighth
Year Today-All Types Repre-
sented in Throng That Invaded
the City Yesterday.
"Here again," laughs the old man.
"At last," sighs the freshman.
Both remarks, caught as the charac-
ters were descending from a Michigan
Central train yesterday, mean one and
the same thing-pleasure at being in
Ann Arbor. Another year and the
freshman of today will be saying, "Here
again," and another crowd of freshmen
will be saying, "At last," with the eyes
of last year's freshmen fixed commis-
eratingly upon them.
So the world runs on. To the fresh-
man of today this beginning seems as
novel as a new world, but to the solid
German who has seen countless such, it
is as old as the depot itself. He likes
to see it come with its increase of trade;
but it has its drawbacks, for doesn't
Mein Herr have to tax his loggy brain
with an entirely new set of faces and
But they're here now, freshman and
senior, young and old, grind and good
fellow. It takes all kinds of men to
make a world, according to the proverb;
but it takes all kinds and conditions of
men and women to make a great, demo-
cratic university like Michigan. To the
watcher who cast his eye along the mot-
ley throng that filed up State street
from the depot yesterday, the procession
furnished no end of fun, as well as no
end of food for reflection.
All the types were there within a
dozen feet of each other. There was
the man who was here to work; you
could tell it from the stop-me-if-you-
dare look in his eye. He will not take
himself so seriously after another three
months, thanks be to the system of
tree-climbing so popular in Ann Arbor.
Right behind him is the chap whose
coming has pinched the family purse;
a glance at his clothes will tell you that
he did not take a berth in the sleeper.
There is the old man, pipe in mouth,
suit case in hand, and with that distinc-
tive air of proprietary interest in the
institution. It's queer how easy it is
to spot a new man. Not because of
his clothes-many of the old men are
proud of their poverty-stricken appear-
ance. An old man who is really alive
to his university standing always car-
ries himself as if just a little square
of the campus sod was his for life. Not
thoe whole of it, nor, on the other hand,
none of it, for these extremes denote
the consciousness of the freshman. The
freshman is either the high and mighty
ruler of the whole campus, or else he
walks as if ihe ought to apologize for
being on sacred ground. Neither of
these denote the old man. He is self-
conscious, proud of his standing, shar-
tg the possessionofIis own campus
with others of his ilk. It will be some
months before he will yield any of his
birthright to the invaders.
The men give way to a bunch of girls,
Of their looks no mere newspaper man
can be an unbiased judge. Suffice it to
say, however, that all were passing fair,
some more so than others. A freshman
in charge of her rushers, for were there
not pledge ribbons on her shirt waist?
Bven so. And as they passed from
view, two more girls appeared in the
unbroken line. Just as pretty, with good
breeding evident in every feature, but
