Although the Farmers once held
Michigan to a nothing to nothing score
In on of "the lean years," the Lan-
sing teams never until last year scored
a touchdown against Michigan; and in
the seven games the two colleges have
played, Michigan has scored 282 to 13
points for the agriculturists.
Today, however, may prove an ex-
ceptional one in the history of rela-
tions between the two schools. With
three backs, Benton, Galt and Mead,
still on the injured list, and several
others in none too good condition,
Yost has a knottty problem in select-
ing his backfield.
Despite the rain yesterday afternooh
the coach drove his squad through a
signal practice on the slippery baseball
diamond lasting until long after dark.
At the conclusion of the grinding drill
he announced that "Brute" Pontius,
the veteran tackle, would start at
fullback, with Catlett and Bentley at
halves, and Raynsford in right tackle.
Michigan supporters will observe
the performance of Pontius at his new
position with the greatest interest, as
the result of Yost's latest shift. will
not only be sifinificant in today's game,
but may prove the critical factor in
the development of this year's ma-
Should a Michigan back be injured,
the result might be disastrous to Mich-
igan. If Hughitt is hurt the choice of
general will be a difficult one, as Galt,
who has been the substitute all season,
is hardly in condition to play, no mat-
ter how sorely he were needed.
If Bentley has to be taken out, Pon-
tius will have to be shifted to the line,
and Quinn sent in at full, as Bentley
is the only punter of the backs who
Quinn might possibly be sent in at
half, but this is scarcely probable,
Benton is absolutely unable to play,
but Mead might play. He has been
used at both full and half.
Bastian will probably be seen at half
before the tilt is over. The youngster
has proven a whirlwind at the plung-
ing game in the scrimmage this week,
but his tackling and blocking are not
all that they might be.
The game will start at 2:30 o'clock,
and a trainload of M.A.C. rooters is
expected to be on hand to urge on their
team to victory.
Owing to the large attendance which
is expected, tickets will be put on sale
at the athletic office from 8:00 to 2:00
The teams will line up as follows:

held at the gymnasiums, Tuesday
night, November 18. Last year about
2,000 crowded into the gyms and this
year's management, with Edward H.
Saier, '15L, as general chairman, be-
lieves that there will be no difficulty
in drawing a crowd of similar propor-

Activities Will Begin at 9:30 O'clock
This Morning on South
Damp weather did not succeed in
dampening the ardor and enthusiasm
of about 700 sophomores who crowded
into the west physics lecture room
last night. The exhuberant spirit evi-
denced at first, settled into a deter-
mined attitude to get out this morning,
and humble the first year men.
E. C. Headman was selected to lead
the sophomore forces, with L. B. Hyde,
J. E. Chenot, C. H. Ross, M. M. Day to
assist him. P. C. Wagner was elected
Carrel B. Haff stirred up "pep"
among the second year men, and Ed-
ward Saier, acting as chairman, inject-
ed a few words of advice into the sec-
ond year men. The president of the
student council explained the things
which are barred while Arthur Kohler
explained the rules in general.
The rush is scheduled to begin at

Tom Lovell, famed among students
and citizens as Ann Arbor's "cobbler-
preacher-poet," has just returned from
Windsor, Canada, where, he spent a
rather unsuccessful summer. He in-
tends to make this city his permanent
home, declaring that he felt "like a fish
out of Water in the absence of the
boys," and he expresses delight over
his return to the intellectual atmos-
phere "that is precious to my heart."

an university, opened the Oratorical

es from Macbeth, Mark Twain's hum-
orous story of a newspaper interview,
