Two Thousand Michigan Rooters Cheer
Wildly as Football Train Leaves
Ann Arbor For
Yost Picks Squad of 20 Men Following'
Fial Signal Drill in
Field House.
Two thousand Michigan rooters sent
their ringing cheers after their foot-
ball team last night when the Wolver-
ine squad steamed out of the Ann Ar-
bor depot, bound for Nashville, Ten-
nessee, in the first foreign invasion of
the year. Tonight at 8:38 o'clock the
.en will pieoff their ars ready for
the tilt with Vanderbilt on Saturday.
It was an exhibition of that old-time
Michigan fighting spirit, the demon-
stration given by those two thousand
students at the depot last night. It fol-
lowed close on the gigantic mass meet-
ing of Tuesday evening where the
Michigan spirit was given its first
chance to come forth from its summer
sleep. To the uninitiated it would
have been hard to believe that just
five days before the -Wolverines had
gone down to defeat before a football
Twenty men composed the squad
which followed Coach Yost'and Cap-
tain Paterson aboard the train with
the tremendous cheers of their fellows
echoing behind them. Each man in
that squad came in for his share of the
cheering. The coach, the captain, the
team, and every individual player
were made the object of 'the enthusi-
asm which the rooters gave to their
men to store up for use on the Com-
modore gridiron on Saturday.
The twenty men whom Yost selected
yesterday afternoon were Captain Pat-
erson, Torbet, Pontius, Hughitt, All-
mendinger, Musser, Galt, Quinn, Bas-
tian, Bentley, Mead, Traphagen,Rayns-
ford, Lichtner, James, Lyons, Tessin,
McHale, Cochran, and Watson. To
preside over this squad Head Coach
Fielding Yost, Trainer Steve Farrell,
Manager Morris Milligan and Assistant
Athletic Director George Moe were
numbered in the Michigan party.
The team will reach Toledo at 9:15
o'clock tonight, leaving there on a
Pullman train at 12:50 o'clock for Cin-
cinnati. The train is due to arrive in
the Ohio iver city early tomorrow
morning and there the men will have
a fouir hour lay over before boarding
again at 11:15 o'clock for Nashville.
The Michigan train will reach the
university city at 8:38 this evening
and the Vanderbilt officials and stu-
dents have arranged for a gala recep-
tion. The return trip is scheduled to
start at 8:39 o'clock Saturday night
with the time of arrival in Ann Arbor
not yet settlted.
The practice stunts handed out by
Yost yesterday afternoon for his Var-
sity consisted of a short practice drill
in the second story of the field house.
The coach refused to take his men out
of doors into the cold, drizzling rain,
preferring to forego the benefits of an
open-air drill for the safer seclusion
of the club house.
Players and coach were confident

Edward James McNamara, a Pater-
son, N. J., policeman, is in the school
of music as the result of the interest
in him of Mme. Schumann-Heink. A
son of Mme. Schumann-Heink heard
the copper sing at Paterson, N. J., and
when he told his mother she went to
hear him. The result is that the officer
is in school in Ann Arbor and if he
deveplops as Mine. Schuman-Heink ex-
pects, he will go abroad later to secure
a foreign education. He has a baritone

scouting this week-end. While the
Wolverines are battling Vanderbilt,
"Germany" Schulz will be watching
the Pennsy team in action; "King"

the battles with her eastern rivals.
At a meeting of the senior engineers
yesterday afternoon T. G. Abrams was
elected vice-president, F. Vande Laare,
secretary, and W.H. Schornburg treas-
urer. The election was held in each
case to decide a tie which resulted at
the regular election.
The first get-together smoker of the
year for freshmen and their senior ad-
visors, held at the Union last evening,
was a complete success. Over 250 men
were present, among whom were sev-
eral faculty members, interested in
the newly organized advisory system.
"As a mixer," said Chairman Hoch
of the committee in charge, "the meet-
ing was successful beyond all expec
A short program featured the even-
ing's entertainment. Dean Effinger,
the first speaker, emphasized the fact
that the advice given by the seniors
would all be of a friendly nature, and
in a spirit of co-operation. Both Pro-
fessors Tilley and Davis, who are in
charge of the new advisory system,
spoke of the ideals held by the sup-
porters of the movement. The other
speakers were J. Bond, '14, and Chas.
Webber, '14.
A feature of the program was a mus-
ical number by three freshmen, Con-
nely, Buckley, and Lawrence Puchta.
Waldo Fellows, '14, delighted the audi-
ence with several songs, and Ralph
Conger and Bruce Miles represented
the mandolin club. The program was
brought to a close with the singing
of several Michigan songs.
Soph and Fresh Lits Fail to Propuce
Complete Teams and Forfeit
to Upperclasses.
Both interclass football games sched-
uled for yesterday afternoon were for-
feited. The soph lits failed to have
a complete team on the field and Direc-
tor Rowe declared the game forfeted
to the seniors. The freshmen of the
same department were not in evidence
and the juniors were given a 1 to 0 vic-
This afternoon the senior laws play
the soph medics while the junior laws
meet the fresh laws. Both games will
be called at 4:05 o'clock.

President-Emeritus James B. Angell
came down stairs yesterday morning I
for the first time since his illness. Dr.
Angell's recovery has been slow but
for one of his age it has been remark-
able in the opinion of physicians.
Band Officials Conduct First Tryouts,
Earl V. Moore, '12, and Ike Fisher
constituted the tryout committee
which heard Varsity band candidates
in McMillan hall last night. No se-S
lections will be made until several

given a chance.
