Wolverines Had Best of Luck.
It has been stated earlier in this ac-
count that Mvichigan did not honestly
deserve to win and taking all fact,
into consideration it is safe to reiterate
it. Taking all the breaks of the game
Michigan had the better of the ever
present luck and'this aided not a little.
But at the same time there is no deiy-
ing the fact that as a whole Michigan
outplayed the Coyotes. They gained
more ground than the westerners, they
made first down oftener, and they kept
the Coyotes continually on the defens-
ive. On straight statistics Michigan
had far the better of the argument and
on this ground deserved its victory.
The defense of the Wolverines with the
exception of stopping forward pass
plays, wassuperior to Dakota's and
made that team exhaust its repertoire
of plays. As a matter of straight tech-
nical football, Michigan earned its vic-
tory, but as a matter of the game,
lMfichigan was very lucky.
Thomson and Craig Star.
To pick any individual stars is a
hard matter as the two teams were
rather evenly matched and the efforts
of the men were perhaps decreased a
little to the spectator. But there are
two of the Wolverines who stand forth
prominently as the stars of the Michi-
gan tearn. Captain Thomson played
the best game of football he has shown
this year and his individual work!
stands forth on account of his line
bucking and his punting. He easily
outpunted Ferguson and his kicks
drove the Coyotes far back into their
territory time and again. "Bottles"
was the only back who could gain
through the line and he hit it with
terrific force. His three plunges when
he. went over for the touchdown were
really spectacular as he had to plunge
straight into the mass with only his
own motive power. "Jimmy" Craig
s the other Wolverine who starred and
his open field running from fake kick
formations and his defensive work
were features of the game. His runs
were practically without inter-
ference and it was only his
speed and dodging ability that
enabled him to make the gains
he did. Carpell and Torbet played
well at ends and Boyle proved to be
a good half if he could get the neces-
sary interference. The line played
good ball but was up against a stone
wall and made its efforts look puny.
rhe fumbling of the Michigan backs
was present again and caused much
listress and it is evident that Michigan
nust learn to hang on to the ball.
Sheeks, Imlay, and Ferguson, the
backfield on the Coyotes were the in-
dividual stars of the western team
and played grand football. Sheeks'
open field running and end running
was a brilliant display and with a
weaker team than Michigan he would
.ave won the game single handed.

First Year Men Come Back and Defeat
The Aggie Yearlings
TEAMS WERE EVENLY MATCHED-.
(Detroit Free Press Service.)
LANSING, MICI1., Nov. 2.-Coming
back in great style against a team that
proved to pe the hardest tackled so far,
the Michigan freshmen gained their
first victory today, and, 6 and 0 are the
mystical numerals that spell defeat for
the yearlings of the Michigan Aggies.
The two freshmen squads were as
evenly matched as a pair of light-
weights weighing in for a bout and
the Ann Arbor youngsters after vain-
ly seeking for a way to decide the
contest finally picked a long and
lengthy sprint and elected Meade for
the race. On a fake punt formation in
the third quarter, the first year half-
back started on the 50 yard line and
ran, squirmed and stiff-armed his
way to the goal of the embryonic farm-
James, the Michigan tackle, showed
the Lansing players and devotees some

BACK FOR GAME
Several hundred "old grads" went
back to their homes last night with
the satisfaction of having seen a Mich-
igan team once again put to the test
and again emerging victorious. As usu-
al,the Michigan Union held open house,
and the capacity of the cafe of that or-
ganization was taxed to the utmost.

The report was dispatched from the
university wireless station, which has
proven itself to be more than an ex-
periment, having recently received
messages from different points on the
Atlantic coast and from ships on the
gulf of Mexico. The report of the
game was sent directly to Annapolis,
no relays being employed for the whole
800 miles. If the dispatch was satis-
factorily received reports of a similar
nature will be sent in the future.

This afternoon's program at the Un-

novel that that organization has yet
offered to its members. "Bob" Bazley,
'11E, well known on the campus for
his work in the various~ operas and
minstrel shows, will entertain with
several vocal selections. Albert Lacie,

"OUTLOOK" PRINTS STORY ON
DUCK HUNTING BY HAINES, '09.
The last issue of The Outlook con-
tained a number of stories and illus-
trated essays. Among these was a
hunting story called "The Doctrine of
the Lean Bag," by Donal Hamilton
Haines, '09. An entertaining account
of the fascination of duck hunting
aside from mere killing is cleverly
told. The author deplores the lust
of the game hog, but believes a hunter
should kill a few birds while he is
enjoying the other phases of the sport.
