Lyons was on the connecting end of
the basketball'plays, and although he
missed one of them, the other two
resulted in touchdowns. Lyons went
over for one of the scores, and carried
the other pass to the five yard line.
Tries First Pass.
Hughitt launched the first pass,
while Benton tossed the others, one of
which was for 25 yards, with Lyons
adding fifteen more before he was
caught. The stands applauded the
open work, as the Varsity has rarely
used the forward pass successfully
this fall.
It was practically an entirely new
line-up of youngsters which Coach
Douglas marshalled forth to open the
tussle., While yesterday's eleven did
not prove to be as strong as the Tues-
day aggregation, many of the young-
t sters showed considerable ability, and
the Varsity was held to two scores.
A forward pass, Hughitt to Lyons,
netted the first counter; and another
should have been made, but Lyons
dropped Benton's toss. After that the
freshmen settled down till well along
in the second quarter, when the Var-
sity again got under. way.
Catlett in Run,
Catlett reeled off twenty-five yards,
and Hughitt dodged through the line
for ten more. Gault then wriggled
across the last six for a score, but
with Captain Paterson out of the line-
up the Varsity failed to get the after
points regularly.
The scrubs were brought on for the
entertainment in the second half, and
for a while held the Varsity at bay.
Bentley opened the half with a forty
yard return of Davidson's kick-off, and
the Varsity then steadily carried the
ball down the field.
Under the shadow of their goal the
scrubs rallied, however, and took the
ball away from the Varsity down on
their four yard line.
Varsity Works Hard.
Davidson punted out safely, but the
Varsity soon worked the ball back
down to the goal line. As before the
scrubs held, and for three downs the
Varsity failed to gain the last few

some, their doom is preparing at the

tests with the University of South Da-

ratus made in the local laboratories
will be used.
The tests will commence in about
three weeks when the machinery under
construction at present will be ready
for use. Similar tests were success-
fully carried on during sunimer school,

gymnasium and sign for their physi-

Over a score of class football squads
were taking light workouts on South
Ferry field yesterday afternoon, begin-
ning to get in shape for the interclass
schedule which starts on October 20.
The schedule will be drawn up in a
few days and published in time for
the teams to prepare before their open-
ing games. Director Rowe will have
full charge of the games, and it is his
plan to have each team given instruc-
tions in the fine points of the game by
the members of his coaching class.
Each team will be assigned to one of
ths men enrolled in the coaching class.
In former years the men getting out
for the class teams had practically no
conditioning, and as a result the hard
work in the games has weakened them
instead of building them up. It is the
plan of Director Rowe to remedy this

Ferry FieldS
Carl Graven, left end on the All
r Fresh, is now in the University Hos
pital suffering from the effects of a
blow received in the game with the
"Varsity yesterday afternoon and whic
has left him with a partial loss o
memory. Graven is a '17 lit and his
home is in Jefferson, Iowa.
IDr. Frederick Waldron attended thc
young man last night and reported
that he expects a complete recovery
in the course of a few days.
It is not known when Graven re-
ceived the injury which resulted in his
apparent loss of memory. He contin-
ued the game, dressed at the field
house and started for home with no
one having guessed his condition.
A friend saw him wandering aim-
lessly on the streets and took him to
his rooms at 206 South Thayer street.
There Graven picked up letters which
he had received several days ago and
read them, avowing that he had never
seen them before. Friends became
alarmed and informed athletic officials,
who sent Dr. Waldron to attend him.
The physician ordered him taken to
the hospital.

nails. He was rushed to the hospital
where doctors attended him.

except freshmen classes will take
place tomorrow, instead of on Satur-
day, as decided by the student coun-
cil in error Tuesday. Freshmen class
nominations are scheduled for a week
from Friday.

As the number of tryouts for cheer-
leaders was disappointingly small at
the Case game last Saturday, the sp-,
dent council committee which is in
charge of the inauguration of the com-
petitive systetm, is leaving no stone
unturned in its effort to get more men
out. Every 'senior is eligible, and all
who have had any experience in lead-
ing cheers, or who have any thoghts
at all of coming out, are urged to meet
at the office of the athletic association

white trousers and sweaters.

on Next Monday.

team reports excellent progress with
his squad of distance runners. Yes-
terday afternoon seventy men covered
the two and one half mile jog.
The division into three squads will
take place on Monday. About a dozen
will constitute the fast squad with
considerably more in the intermediate
and slow divisions.
The sophomore class has contribu-
ted the greatest number of speed mer-
chants to the cross country aggrega-
tion, a trio of members from this de-
partment displaying surprising speed
and staying power. The first meet will
in all probability be held the first
Saturday in Novmber, although this
has not been definitely decided. It
will be a local novice affair of about
four miles.
Professor Marchis, of the depart-
ment of aviation of the University of
Paris, on Wednesday afternoon deliv-

Michigan Union house to house can-
vass for members, 189 new names
were added to the membership rolls,
making a total of 2484. This compar-
es more than favorably with the rec-
ord of 2430 at the end of last year, and
exceeds the membership at this time
in 1912 by 721.
Many of the comimtteemen had not
handed in their reports at a late hour
last night. These results, combined
with the gains in tonight's canvass,
are expected to give the membership
a most decided boost.
Results in Detail
The results handed in by the sub-
chairmen last night are as follows:
D. R. Ballentine, 36; Edward Haislip,
32; Edwin Wilson, 27; John I. Lippin-
cott, 22; Kenneth Baxter, 20; Harold
Schradzki,'° 16. Paul Thomson, '15;
Howard Seward, 11; Lester Rosen-
baum, 10.
The committeemen who 'were espe-
cially successful in last night's cam-
paign are as follows:' C. T. Bushnell,

Karl Mohr, 8; James B. Angell, Jr., 7;
E. Wells, 7; H. Little, 6; A. M. Benley,

number of the committeemen brought
three or four men into the Union.
Conger's Men Active.
Ralph Conger, who has charge of
the fraternity part of the canvass, an-
nounced last night that 27 of his 48
committeemen have reported. In each
of the fraternities reported, either all
or a majority of the men have become
Union members. Professional frater-
nities have been especially slow, re-
ports showing that only a minority in
many chapters have signed up for the
yellow buttons.
