A grade school youngster, "bolting"

veral humorously inclined boiler-

aveled at least 10.8 miles over the

City Official Makes First Error in
Athletic Prophecies.
One Isaac Reynolds, assistant to the
clerk of the city of Ann Arbor, is stilly
an unquestioned authority in down-
town quarters in the art of prophecy-
ing athletic scores. This still holds in
spite of the fact that sundry other
members of the city staff thought they
had him cornered on the outcome of
the Penn game last Saturday.
It seems that way back last summer,
Mr. Reynolds started reading sporting
extras while in Dreamland long be-
fore the sporting editor knew that any
certain game was to be played. And it
came to pass that what Mr. Reynolds
dreamed turned out to be true. Phila-
delphia won the world's championship
by annexing the sixth game. And tb e
game ended with the very score that
he prophet said it would. He said that
Michigan would win from Vanderbilt,
{ to 8, that Syracuse would tie the Wo-
verines, 6 to 6, and that Cornell would
take Michigan into camp, 6 to 0.
But what Mr. Reynolds predictedj
about the Penn game was to the effect
that Michigan would carry away the
'.ong end of a 11 to 6 score. And the
prophet gets around that neatly.
"Simply the fault of the sand-man,"
he says. "Got the blamed 9 up-side
down. I'm not to blame for that."

Nebraska game. The Omaha alumni
have arranged to take a band of about
twenty pieces to the game to stir up
all possible enthusiasm for the occas-
ion. After considerable difficulty the
music was secured and was forwarded
last night.
"Michigan is wonderfully popular
throughout the west," said Mr. Frank
A. Harrison, editor of the "Lincoln
Capitol," who was here last week end
in the interests of the LaFollette pres-
idential boom," and the people will
flock to the biggest game in the his-
tory of Lincoln next Saturday from
miles around. We all consider it an
honor for Michigan to consent to meet
us, and we will tender her Varsity one
of the greatest receptions ever given
any university team. Over three thous-
and new grandstand seats are being
erected merely for this game."

His dictum is perpetual youth; in

maintains, is the happiness that is to

Herr Herzog is especially known in
Germany as a newspaper man. It has
been in this field of work that he has
attained a great deal of success. Dur-
ing latter years he has been the editor
of the Hamburg Neuste Nachrichten,
the most popular daily of that city.
Finally he has retired to literary life,
and has during recent years contrib-
uted many novels to the literature ofI
Germany which have won him a popu-
larity not confined to Europe alone.
His works are to be found in the al-
coves of the university library.

"Back to Michigan" is the slogan
that the Minnesota students have
adopted and it has become a byword3
in that college. It was pointed out by
various speakers that the conference
could not exist without Minnesota and
that it was doing more for the finan-
cial benefit of the conference than any
other team. Every speaker advocating{
