Winning Production in Conipetitlon
to Be Submitted to Audience
of N. X. Play"right,
For the first time in the history of
Michigan dramatics a play written and
produced by Michigan students may
be read before an audience of N w
York playwrights and managers.
Whether this is done or not will de-
pend upon the outcome of the cornpe-
tition for a production to be given by
the Comedy club this winter.
A prize has been offered by the mnn-
agement of the Comedy club for a pkv
to be given as their annual play. Eiit
plays, two from alumni, are fnow in
the hands of the selection committ-e,
and one or two more are expected
fore the competition closes next Fri-
day evening. These plays which haye i
already been received show gutr
,promise, and Prof., Strauss expr
himself as highly pleased with tiIem.
If a play is submitted that is capa-
ble of being produced by the club, the
author will receive $100 in gold. If
the club is unable to use the play a
prize of $25 will be given, but from


past defeats yesterday when it fought
its way to a 12 to 7 victory over Mich-
Bitter as is the pill to Michigan, the
fast and powerful Macklin machine
literally outclassed the Wolverines in
the annual intra-state battle on Ferry
field. Only for one fleeting second did
the goddess of victory hover over the
Maize and Blue standard before her
lot was finally cast with the warriors
from the up state institution.
In the last moments of play, when
watches were counting the unconsum-
ed time by seconds, Michigan opened a
line of attack that nearly won the
game. But fortune favored the visiting
eleven and what might have turned
the occasion into a lucky but welcome
victory for Michigan, served only to
emphasize the bitterness of defeat.
With the ball on the 35 yard line,
after Bastian had saved Michigan the
ignominy of a blank scoreboard, the
Wolverines negotiated a forward pass
that placed the leather on the Agricul-
turists' 35 yard line. A futile attempt
to pierce the M. A. C. line, and Michi-
gan again used the pass. The ball
soared high and Lyons raced to get it.
For a brief second the oval rested on.
his finger tips scarcely two yards from
the goal line, and then he was borne
down by the Green and White players
and the only chance to snatch a victory
was lost.
That the warriors from M. A. C.
were formidable was apparent from
the very start of the contest. The
Farmers took the ball on the kick-off,-.
and then by a powerful line of attack
that showed the machine at its well-
oiled best, started a straight march for
the Michigan goal.
Julian, the crack Aggie fullback,
found holes awaiting him in the line.
The Michigan flankmen found them-
selves boxed on the end attacks, and
largely due to the individual prowess
of the visiting fullback, the Farmers
advanced the ball well into the Wol-
verine territory. -f
Michigan braced successfully for al
time, and even forced a touchback over
the M. A. C. goal. With the ball in play
on the 20 yard line, Bentley's kick
soared to oneside and the ball went
to M. A. C. on the 20 yard chalk mark.
Once more Michigan stopped the at-
tack, and Bentley punted out of dan-
ger. Then two perfectly executed for-
ward passes, Gauthier to Henning, and,
Gauthier to Blacklock put the pig-
skin on the 2 yard mark. It was Jul-
ian who cArried the ball across on a
terrific plunge. Blake Miller, how-
ever, failed to add the point for a goal.l
Then in the second quarter, Michi-
gan pulled herself together and battled
more on even terms with the visitors.
All during the period, the ball shuttled
from team to team, with each eleven
kicking when necessary. Once during
this period Michigan tried a series of>
passes, but the plays were every one;
broken up by the alert men of Macklin.
When the quarter ended neither team1

Oudiiumidered 3 ti 2 Second Year Men
. oncentraie Forces and Win in
22 Minutes.
Defeating the freshmen by a score
of S to 0, in one of the krettiest and
cleanest fought fall scraps in years,
the sophomores easily established their
supremacy over the first year men at
Ferry field yesterday morning. For
the second time in the history of the
contests, the sophomores made.a clean
swep of the whole fracas, the class
of 1914 being the only other one to
si,h precedents and whitewash their
emerald painted opponents.'
Although outnumbered by the fresh-
men 3 to 2, by concentrating their forc-
es on the center pole, the sophs were
able to make better use of their num-
bers and after a little more than 10,
minutes of lively fighting, C. B. Gild-
meister, '1E, was boosted up over the
the heads of the freshmen, and in less
than",0 seconds, he had secured the
"M" bann'er. It took two more minutes
to get the first end pole flag, and 8
minutes for the last flag. The whole
contest lasted less than 22 minutes.
H. P. Luther and E. J. Dillman, '1GE,
were he other successful pole climb-
The cane spree was won by the soph-
omoes by a score of 14 to 12. Fourt
pairs of contestants struggled ten
minutes without a decision.{
No serious injuries were reported.t
Aside from'a few petty skirmishes on
the way to Memorial hall, no hazing
was in evidence. Student councilmen
were on hand, and effectually put the
iemm on raps as soon as they be-

Whole Backfield Stars in a Rompaway
Which Rolls Up Score
of 79-0.
While the Michigan Varsity fought a
grueling battle on Ferry field, the All-
Fresh eleven had a merry frolic in
Hillsdale. -.A time limit seemed to be
the only drawback for the embryo Var-
sity players, for nothing but the final
whistle stopped them and at the end
of the game the scorers who had not
broken their knife blades notching
sticks, announced the score to be 79 to
o in favor of the Michigan youngsters.
In the first quarter of the romp-
away, Coach Douglas sent his strong-
est eleven against the Baptists and 23
points were scored, three touchdowns,
two goals and a drop kick by Splawn
from the 25 yard line. In the second
quarter the yearlings rested up a lit-
tle and only scored seven points. In
the third quarter Douglas gave, his
subs a chance to play and 13 points
were added. With the original lineup
back in the game for the final period,
the game degenerated into a footrace
and the count was brought up to 79.
The work of the Michigan backs fea-
tured the game. Maulbetsch plunged at
will, and Calvin and Ziger tore off sub-
stantial gains. Splawn added his quo-
ta of yards, but his kicking didn't fea-
ture the game. He didn't need to kick.
Coach Douglas made so many chang-
es that the scorers gave up an attempt'
to keep track of them. The lineups1
that started the contest follow:--
All-Fresh Hillsdale
Craven ..........,. L.E. ...... Bower
Finkbeiner........ L.T. .....Roberts
Rehor ............. L.G. .....L.Loukes

Chester H. Lang and Percy Crane, as-
sistant baseball managers; Emmet F.
Connely and Beresford Palmer, as-

campaigning was distinctly absent
throughout the contest.
Polling was heaviest early in the
morning, more than two thirds of the
vote being cast before 10:00 o'clock.
Only 542 votes were cast for baseball
manager, 320 of which went to Em-
mons. Crowe receiVeA4b tes out of
559 cast for track manager. Crane and
Lang received 331 and 271 ballots re-
spectively for assistant baseball man-
ager -out of a total of 1,003 votes. Of
974 votes for assistant track managers
Connely got 278, Palmer 246.
This light vote was due to the polls
closing at noon because of the foot-
ball game.

the standard of the work already stO-
mitted it seems very probable that the
larger prize will be won.
The management of the club has
been in communication with Mr. David
Belasco all summer, as an outcome of
which he has promised to get the prize
production before an audience of some
of the nation's most noted critics. An
excerpt from a letter of Mr. eico
speaking for the New York managers
says, "We shall be very glad to read
the play for which you offer the prize."
It is also unofficially stated that if the
critics are satisfied the play will be
numbered among the regular Belasco
