forty hard-working young men lead-

They are the men who will fight for
the Maize and Blue this year.
For two weeks the hard grind of
early-season practice has been going
on. The work has been, lone minus
the large rooting crowds which will
mark and practice from now on. It
has been the hard grinding drill, min-
us the pleasures of the old Whitmore

which had been mailed out to promis-

Coach Fielding H. Yost. From that
day on the players have been coming
Large Coaching Staff.
Greeting the early arrivals with
Coach Yost was the biggest staff of
preliminary-season coaches which
has ever taken charge of a Wolver-
ine squad. Big "Germany" Schulz,
Michigan's captain in 1908, All-Amer-
ican center habitually and the man
selected by Yost for his all-time Mich-
igan eleven headed the list. Michi-
gan took "Germany" away from Wis-
consin where the big fellow built up a
line in 1912 which won the champion-
ship of the Conference. But he is
back at his Alma Mater now, and
many say it is to stay.
With Schulz were Freshman Coach
Prentiss Douglas, star Michigan half
several years ago, and Intramural
Athletic Director Floyd Rowe, one of
Michigan's best track athletes. And,
of course, "Steve" Farrell was on
hand to extend the glad hand of wel-

With six "M" men working tooth

of course a fixture. "Squib" Torbett

MONSTER OPEN HOUSE WILL
BE HELD ON FRIDAY NIGHT.
Regular Saturday Night Dances Wi
Be Held Again
Men with the little yellow buttons
numbered 1,670 at a late hour last
night. The growth In Union member-
ship this year is unprecedented and
there are already many more mem-
bers than the total roll of 1911.
The remarkable growth of the or-
ganization is partly explained by the
senior advisory system under which
first year-men are induced to become
Union members.The membership com-
mittee under the chairmanship of H.
Beach Carpenter, '14, has been suc-
cessful in its preliminary campaign
and expects to book hundreds more
during the organized effort of the
next few weeks. Particularly effective
work was done by the committeemen
who met trains and extended the wel-
come of the Union to new men.
"Open house" will be held at'the
Union Friday night, beginning at 7:30
o'clock. Every student is inyited. "In-
formality is the keynote of the func-
tion," said Selden Dickenson, '13-' ,Sb,
president of the Union, yesterday.
Prominent campus figures will serve
on the reception comimttee. There
will be orchestral music throughout
the evening and refreshments and
smokes will be furnished. Patrick
Koontz, 14, is general chairman.
The employment bureau and room-
ing agency under Charles Webber,
'14, has filled about 50 positions and
has a waiting list of 110. The agency
has cooperated with the Y. M. C. A.
and by this method more effective
service has been obtained.
At the "mixer" Sunday afternoon
more than 200 were present. Waldo
Fellows, '14, and Willis A. Diekema,
'14, did several stunts and the new
Miichigan Union song books were used
or the first time. Meetings of this
nature will be made a permanent fea-
ure both on Sunday afternoons and
>ther times available. By the use of
the new collection of melodies the
rnanagement expects to revive consid-
arable interest in Michigan refrains.
The regular Saturday night dances
will be held as last year, begnnng
ext Saturday. Tickets at 50 cents
,ach will go on sale at the Union desk

SHOWS SLISHT ,IMPROVEMENTI
For that first week Yost and his
assistants went easy with the bunch
of candidates. They were all some-
what soft, and Yost determined that
this year would not be a repetition of
others when early-season injuries
played havoc with high Michigan
hopes. Practice in those old familiar
squads of four, a center and a trio of
backs, furnished the principal vehicle
whereby Yost put his men in shape.
Toward the end of the week the really
"hard stuff" of falling on the ball and
tackling was started. The "war cor-
respondents" who had been at Ann
Arbor since the first week, were there
in large numbers that day, for the
scrimmage told what Yost had been
keeping religiously to himself all the
time, the make-up of his first squad.
That squad has been changed some-
what since a week ago, and it will
probably be changed some more be-
.ore the Case game Saturday.
The showing made in those scrim-
nages has brought a feeling of quiet
satisfaction to thos6 who have watch-
A special committee under the di-
rection of Fletcher has been organized
to deal with the problem, Plans for
effectually putting the quietus on haz-
ing will be discussed tonight at the
first student council meeting of the
year, when edicts. regulating all inter-
class struggles in regard to hazing,
will be drawn up. Although other
matters will be discussed at the meet-
ing, the hazing problem will receive
the most attention, as it is determined
to let no one plead the excuse of ig-
norance after being caught.
The Council meeting will be called
to order tonight at 7:00 o'clock, in the
north wing of University hall.
Gargoyle Drawing Copied by Judge.
"A Dog's Life" is the title of a
drawing by Alan Honey, '15E, in the
issue of Judge published Sept. 13. The
illustration was taken from a last
year's copy of the Gargoyle. Honey,
who was prominent in campus illus-
trating and art editor of the Gargoyle,
will not return to school this fall.

regular and -his breathing easier. His
condition has not yet warranted send-
ing for his son, Dean J. B. Angell, of
the University of Chicago. An attack
of heart failure Saturday noon, fol-
lowed by the development of pneu-
monia early yesterday morning is the
shock that has stirred the campus.
Dr. Angell was welcoming students
Saturday morning and at this time
subscribed for The Michigan Daily for
the ensuing year; at 2:00 o'clock he
was critically ill. Crowds flocked to
his home all day yesterday anxious
to learn his exact condition.
Mrs. Andrew McLaughlin of Chica-
go, daughter of Dr. Angell, arrived
Saturday and is continually with her
father. Judge Alexis Angell, of De-

Coach Fielding H. Yost, Trainer
Stephen Farrell and Intramural Coach
Rowe will speak tonight in the Y. M.,
C. A. tent north of the association
house on State street. They will dis-
cuss the athletic situation and the
outlook for a winning team this fall.
Since opening up, September 15, the
university Y. M. C. A. has been a busy
place. From morning till night crowds
have pressed around the tables devot-
ed to the various aids which the asso-
ciation furnishes. It was found nec-
essary to put up a large tent on the
lot north of the temporary quarters
a week ago. As in years past.,the in-
formation and the employmennt bu-
reaus have been featured.
President Paul Blanshard, '14, of the
association stated that, while accurate
figures are not yet available, the mem-
bership is now larger than that of any
year previous at the same time. A
special committee has been appointed

"He is wonderfully game and his
long life of proper living is now
standing him in stead. The crisis has
not yet been reached, and we can but
hope for the best," said Dr. James F.
Breakey late last evening.
Dr. James . Angell, president emer-
itus, spent a quiet night yesterday,,
this week, and Blanshard hopes to
make this year's membership record
a banner one.
Last night President Dickinson of
the Union, President Hulbert of the
Student Council, and Managing Editor
Toulme of The Michigan Daily talked
to the freshmen on the respective or-
ganizations they represent.
