Craig, Ponlius, Paterson and Hughitt
Will Figure in Selection
of Mythical
Tost May Pick All-Western; Also Said
He Will Confer With Camp
li His Choice.
With the 1913 football season offi-
cially closed, followers of the Michi-
gan Varsity eleven are beginning to
figure All-American and All-Western
chances for the members of the team.
The Maize and Blue eleven of 1913
was probably the best Wolverine team
in a great many years. In the opinion
of Coach Fielding H. Yost, admitted
by all who follow the game to be one
of the foremost football authorities in
the United States, this season's Varsi-
ty was a great team. And surely a
great team must be composed, to a
certain extent, of great individual
Craig, Pontius, Paterson and Hugh-
itt are the individual players for whom
great things are expected in the way
of national recognition. The fore-
most critics who pick All-American
and All-Western teams are Walter
Camp, dean of the eastern authorities,
and Walter Eckersall, one of the best
critics of the west. It is also possible
that Fielding H. Yost himself will pick
an All-Western team. -And Michigan
supporters believe that all three crit-
ics will be obliged to consider the
four Michigan men named.
CraIg, probably the best halfback
who has played for Michigan since the
days of "Willie" Heston, is the man
expected to land on the All-American
first team if any. Craig's late return
to the game this season will no doubt
hurt his chances to a slight extent,
but it is believed he will be recognized
on his showing in the Syracuse, Cor-
nell, and Penn games, together with
his record in seasons past. Possibly
Craig will not make Camp's first team,
but friends of the brilliant halfback do
not see how he can fail to make the
second eleven.
Pontius, tackle on the Michigan
eleven, outplayed Propst, All-American
tackle, in the Syracuse game, in a
manner plainly discernable to the
least experienced followers of the
gridiron sport. On this showing, as
well as his consistent record at tackle
all season, friends of the big tackle
base their hopes. Pontius, like the
others is sure of a place on the All-
Western, according to general belief,
and also has an excellent chance of
winning a place on -Camp's eleven.
Captain Paterson was prevented
from making All-American first or sec-
ond honors last season by the fact
that he was out of the entire Syracuse
game and parts of the 0. S. U. and
Penn games, according to the belief of
his friends. This year Paterson's
sturdy record should stand him in
good stead. Whereas Paterson is not
a brilliant or spectacular player, he
is consistent, and if he does not land
on Camp's team, he is sure to land
on Eckersall's All-Western, say his
Hughitt, in the opinion of Yost, the
best quarterback Michigan has ever
had, and in the opinion of many Wol-
verine followers the best field general

in the west, is bound to receive rec-
ognition for his year of excellent 3er-
vice. Hughitt's supporters do not be-
lieve he has All-American caliber, due,
possibly to his slight weight, but it is
believed he cannot be overlooked when
western players are considered.
It is realized at Michigan that Wal-
ter Camp has been- exceedingly reluc-
tant in the past in picking western
men for the All-American. But this
season it is not thought possible
Camp can, in justice, overlook the en-
tire quartet of Wolverine stars. Coach
Fielding H. Yost, it is said, will confer
with Camp before the eastern critic
makes his selections.
When it comes to the All-Western,

eleven Coach Yost has been asked to
pick, it seems probable that all four
of the men considered will make the
team. This conclusion is not advanc-
ed because Yost is the Michigan coach,
but because Yost is in a position to
know their worth.
Last season Craig, Pontius and Pat-
erson were picked as half, end and
guard, respectively on Axelson's All-
Western in the Chicago Record Her-
ald. This season it is not believed
Eckersall can overlook them.

Plans for a Breakfast Dance
Been Completed by the'
Social Continittee.


A decided innovation in the nature
of class functions will be sprung at the
Michigan Union Saturday, December
13, by the junior literary class. The
affair is to be called "Ein Fruhstuck-
Tanz" or as the natives will say "A
Breakfast Dance."
Breakfast-dances have become ex-
tremely popular at most of the east-
ern universities, but it has been left
to the jolly juniors to foist a party of
this description upon the unsuspecting
The social committee has already
completed arrangements and it is
planned to start the doings at the early
hour of 8:00 o'clock. Breakfasting
will be the center of interest for the
first hour and .after its hunger has
been appeased, the party will adjourn
to the dance hall and there give way
to terpsichorean tendencies.
Patrick Koontz, '14 appointed a rep-
resentative student committee yester-
day to draft resolutions regarding the
closing of class and society dances, at
midnight, which will be offered to the
non-athletic committee, at its next
meeting. The student committee will
meet at the Union this afternoon at
5:00 o'clock.
Robert Sturtevant, '14, is chairman
of the newly appointed committee. He
represents the literary department
and Michigamua. J. Herbert Wilkins,
'14, represents Druids and Sphinx;
Morris R. Lohman, '15M, represents
the medical department and Griffins;
Alfred 0. Williams, '14E, represents
the engineering department, Vulcans
and Triangles; Frank Murphy, '14L,
represents the law department and
Dixie Club Meets Tonight at Union.
Dixie club will hold a meeting at the
Union tonight at 7:30 o'clock. The
Virginians and West Virginians will
render a program. Dr. J. R. Coryell,
of Baltimore, will deliver an address.
All freshmen from the south are cor-
dially invited to attend.
Woman Submits Melody taut Mimes
Will Not Establish Precedent
That no university women will be
permitted to submit music for Union
operas, was the edict of the Mimes,
which met at the Union last night.
One selection for the 1914 opera, has
been submitted -by a feminine aspir-
ant, and it will be barred from compe-
tition on the grounds that the Union
and the Mimes are strictly organiza-
tions for university men. Although it
was considered that women are able
to do creditable musical work, the
Mimes does not wish to establish a
precedent by accepting the selection
recently submitted.
The resignation of Paul Dougherty,
'14L, as president was accepted. His
successor will be chosen at the next
meeting, on December 24. The so-
ciety will also poll for treasurer on
account of the absence of Edward
Moseman, who was elected last year.
The opera book will be published by
Friday and at the next meeting it will
be read. Ray Melton, '13, the author,
will be present.
A Mimes committee is working on
a skit to be presented at the Union
dinner, December 3. Competition for
opera music, with the exception of
the overture and the finale, will be
open until December 15.

their active preparation for the meet
in New York city, this Saturday, by
taking a fast two miles. A rest has
been ordained by Trainer Farrell for
the next two afternoons.
In preparation for this eastern trial.
the Michigan men have been making
their daily runs well over the six
miles that will measure the Van Court-
land Park' course. These long runs
were the order up to last Tuesday,
when they began to cut down the dis-
tance, and speed up their rate a few
notches. Yesterday's spin around the
boulevard was the shortest that the
distance men have been allowed this
year, since the first week of practice,
but in point of speed maintained from
start to finish, it set a new record.
The Wolverines are not confident
of their chances to finish with the
leaders, but are straining every effort
to be in shape to do their best work
on Saturday, and may upset their own
dope. They will leave on the trip into
the East, today, probably on the 9:30
Michigan Central train.
The second number on the program
of the Oratorical association, will be
a lecture by Jacob August Riis in Uni-
versity hall, Friday evening at 8:00
o'clock. As an author, lecturer, and
philanthropist, Mr. Riis has made him-
self well known to the American peo-
ple. Some of his best work was done
in conjunction with ex-president
Roosevelt, when the latter was police
commissioner in New York City.
"Every student in the university
ought to hear Mr Riis," said Prof. T.C.
Trueblood of the oratory department.
"This is one of the best lectures on
the program." His subject is "My
Neighbor." Regular course tickets or
50 cents will admit.
At the meeting of the board of di-
rectors of the Union, yesterday noon,
the design for the official life member-
ship button was chosen. This button,
which will go to life mernbers whose
subscriptions are fully paid, is an em-
blem of the same size as the present
Union button, with the letter "M" in
blue enamel, on a depressed, solid
gold background. The word, Union,
will be shown in raised gold letters.
Prof. John R. Allen of the engineer-
ing faculty, was elected to serve on
the board of directors, this year, dur-
ing the absence of Prof. Henry C. Ad-
ams, who is working for the Chinese
Michiganensian Copy Must be in Today
Michiganensian copy from fraterni-
ties, sororities, and house clubs must
be handed in today, in order to appear
in the 1914 year book. Robert Sturte-
vent, '14, managing editor has stated
that after this date, no material will
be accepted from these organizations.
General reading matter such as lists
of class officers, and histories may be
handed in later.
Senior Lits Hold Dinner at Union
The first senior lit dinner was held
last night at the Union. Prof. R. M.
VWenley, who talked on "What a Sen-
ior Ought to Know," was the principal
speaker. President Waldo Fellows, as
toastmaster, called on ex-presidents
Harold Schradzki, Guy Woolfolk, and
H. B. Carpenter for short addresses.
Music was furnished by Ralph Conger
and Bruce Miles.
Foresters Hear Talk By A A. Griffin
Seventy-five members of the Forest-
ry club met last night and heard the

talk on "Volume and Yield Tables" by
A. A. Griffin, a grad-uate of the Univer-
sity of Kansas, who is now taking
work in the forestry department here.

nently to the fore, with prospects par-
ticularly good for a brilliant team.
Captain "Tiny" Kohler is a sure
point winner in the east, and a man
well suited to his position as leader of
the squad. His past performances for
the Maize and Blue speak for them-
selves. Kohler was the individual
star in the junior championships held
in Chicago last July, and high point
winner in the Central A. A. U. cham-
pionships the previous month.
The names of Bond and Seward need
no introduction to the campus, as it
will be remembered that both were
point winners at Cambridge last year,]
in probably the fastest inter-collegiate
that has ever been staged. In addi-
tion, Craig is expected to be back in
form for the hurdles.
Jansen will have to battle alone in
the 440 unless some unknown quanti-
ty shows up, as C. B. Smith and Gore
of last year's freshmen team are not
in college. Jansen was a point win-t
ner in the big eastern intercollegiate.
Brown and Lamey will be back for
the half.
Capt. H. L. Smith of last year's star
freshmen aggregation, who captured
second and third at Chicago in the
Central A. A. U. championships in the
100 and 220 respectively, is ready for
Varsity competition, and will no doubt
rival Bond and Seward. Of the other
newer men Fox of the cross country
squad will be out for the mile; Cat-
lett for the hurdles, and Ufer and Mur-
phy for the half mile.

In an effort to raise the faculty1
membership of the Union, an organiz-
ed campaign will be conducted next
week. Of the 500 faculty members,
the Union aims to attain an enrollment'
of 490. There are now 110 faculty
members of the Union, and there are
65 faculty men who enrolled last year,,
who have not signed up on the 1913-'14
books. A preliminary meeting was
held last night, and the 20 members of
the committee will meet for final.in-
structions at 4:30'o'clock Sunday, un-
der the chairmanship of H. Beach
Carpenter, '14.
At a meeting of the Oratorical Board
yesterday arrangements for the an-
nual play were made. Professor R. D.
T. Hollister was appointed director
and as such will have complete charge
of selecting the cast and staging the
play. The play selected this year,
"She Stoops to Conquer," will be given
in University Hall on March 13. All
interested are urged to report to Pro-
fessor Hollister Friday at 4:00 o'clock
in room 404 N. W.
Oratorical association ticket sellers
are asked to report to the treasurer,
Friday, November 21, between 4:00
and 5:00 o'clock at the box office in
University hall.
Louise Markley Writes Junior Play.
Louise F. Markley, '15, is the writer
of the manuscript, ,which was yester-
day chosen by the women's junior play
committee, as the play to be staged
this year. According to custom, the
name of the accepted manuscript is
always withheld, until a week before
the play is given.
Canadians to Organize Dominion Club-
The Dominion club will be organiz-
ed at the Union next Monday night
at 7:30 o'clock for the benefit of all
students whose home or birthplace is
in Canada. The club's pur-

pose is to boost Michigan in Cana-
da, and keep alive the home feeling of
its members. There are 25 Canadian
residents registered in the university,
and a number of others who were born
in Canada.

Senior Engineers and Junior Mredis
Play For Champinsip
on Saturday.
By defeating the senior lits 13 to 0
yesterday afternoon the soph medics
won a place in the list of four teams
that will receive numerals in the in-
terclass football series.
From the first the sophs had a shade
the better of their elders and by
pounding the line for consistent gains,
crossed the line twice. The seniors
were at no time in close proximity to
the goal posts, and so had to be con-
tent with a 0, registered to their side
of the ledger.
The four teams that will receive
their figures are: the senior laws, sen-
ior engineers, junior medics, and the
soph medics. , The championship of
the campus rests between the senior
engineers and the junior medics. The
final decision will be reached Saturday
afternoon when the teams meet to
play off the tie, which was the result
of their attempted verdict last Satur-
As an added attraction on Ferry
field Saturday there will be an exhibi-
tion'soccer game. The flichigan soc-
cer men have been working hard all
season and have developed a team that
shows great promise. The teamwork
among the aspirants is especially no-
ticeable and the game Saturday will
give the campus a chance to see the
newest Michigan sport demonstrated.
Tickets for the big popular Thanks-
giving concert, to be given next Tues-
day, by the combined Glee and Man-
dolin clubs, will be put on sale Mon-
day and Tuesday at the Hill audito-
rium box-office, between 3:00 and 4:00
o'clock in the afternoon. Thirty-five
hundred seats will be sold at 25 cents,
and 1,500 at 50 cents.
Earl V. Moore, of the University
school of music, will present several
numbers on theColumbian organ, one
of which will be featured by the ca-
thedral chimes, which were installed
in the echo organ last spring. Other
novelties, and several comedy stunts,
which will be used on the long Pacific
coast trip next spring vacation, will
also have a part on the program.
William W. Welsh, '12, former pres-
ident of the Corda-Fratres Cosmopoli-
tan club, will deliver his first exten-
sion lecture tonight, at the Adcraft
Advertising club banquet, in Detroit,
on the "Possibilities of the Extension
of American Trades Through Foreign
Students in America" Welsh will give
another lecture before the Grand
Rapids Congregational ch-: ch on "The
Cosmopolitan Movement," November
C. P. Wang, '14, will speak at Ypsi-
lanti on November 25, on "Why For-
eign Students Idealize America." Re-
quests have also been received from
Lansing, Bay City and Detroit calling
for these student lecturers.
