Introduced Only This Fall, the
Sport Has Aroused Much
Interest on Campus.
Thlis fall just passed has been mark-
ed by the entrance of a new branch
of athletic conttention into the cam-
pus arena. Its sponsors, the athletic
association, in their search for a
game to interest a greater number of
Michigan students in some form of
exercise, were guided in a selection
by the growth of popularity that is
boosting association football to the
fore among the eastern universities.
Expecting only a very moderate
amcunt of enthusiasm to be developed
over its playing, and that it would
not for a few years occupy a promi-
nent place on the list of the univer-
sity's athletics, its rise has been truly
meteoric. from a new and untried
game to one in which a representative
tean wrested a victory from a near-
by college in the presence of 1,001 in-
terested student ohlookers.
II response to a call issued by
Coach Prentis G. Douglas early in the
fall, 25-men interested in soccer as-
sembled in the trophy room of Water-
man gymnasin to consider plans
for the instroduction of that sport in
the university. Three practices a
week were decided upon, and the
coach announced that a field would
be p:reparel for them on South Ferry
Field. After developing a fair amount
of talent in the squad, partly from men
who had Played before, but mainly
from green material, soccer footballs
was formally presented to 'the stu-
dent body in an exhibition game, be-
tween the halves of the Fresh-Adrian
ontest. . It served to stimulate some

ing practice was considerably increas-
ed. From then on the enthusiasm of
the players gradually waned as the
winter advanced, until practice was
finally abandoned, as was thought, for
the year.
But when a communication was re-
ceived frpm Ypsilanti Normal college,
asking for the opportunity to pit a
team from that institution against a
?Michigan eleven, the deal was closed;
aud on a scanty week's notice, Coach
Douglas built up an organization that
joyfully celebrated the first inter-cpl-
legiae soccer game by a victory. On
this occasion, students, in their desire
to witness the novel contest, thronged
the sidelines to the number df 1,000.
There is now some talk that the
university will enter a team next
spring in a league to be composed of
the state colleges. Whether this ac-
tually occurs or not, it is a safe wager
that the athletic association will give
the subject of soccer much' careful
consideration and that its playing in
the spring will be on a larger scale.
Some inter-collegiate games are to
be arranged, and it is understood that
the Detroit amateur teams are anxious
to meet with the university soccer-
ites. A rumor has even arisen in
some myste.rious way that soccer is,
to be flayed in the gym this winter;
but when such a liklihood was broach-
ed to Coach Douglas he stamped it as
highly improbable. Soccer cannot"
usurp the place of the winter sports,
but must bide its time until spring,
even though its seasonal demise be
mourned by a goodly-number of stu-
