STREMN OUS SIGNAL PRACTIcE,
WHILE SECON D-STRING ,TEAM
ONE TOUCHDOWN SCORED
Coach Will T ry to Eliminate Fumbles
Which Showed In Saturday's
Came With M. A C.
Michigan's football team practiced
in sections yesterday' afternoon. The
workout which Coach Yost gave the
arsity was unique in that while the
men who have become known as the
regulars of the Varsity squad were
sent through a stiff signal drill, the
second string men of the squad were
senM into a hard scrimmage with the
scrubs. Yost divided his attention be-
tween the two interests.
Yesterday's practice was announced
as secret, but a number of football
supporters gathered at Ferry field be-
fore the gates were closed and were
permitted to watch the battle between
the Varsity substitutes and the re-
serves. The second-string men of the
Varsity used regular Varsity plays
and attempted to rush the reserves.
The scrubs, however, put up a game
fight and and the scoring was limited
to one touchdown.
Whlie the Varsity substitutes were
battling the reserves, the Varisty reg-
ulars had thier woifk cut out for them
in a signal drill instigated to correct
the glaring faults of the M. A. (-
game; Yost evidently doesn't desire
the, butter-fingere" tactics of the "Ag-
gie" game repeated in ,the 0. S. U.
contest Saturdiay, and if constant work
at the plays will develop a perfection
in handling the leather, the team will
From the way in which the first
team lined up last evening, it is ap-
parent that Yost is planning to have
a wealth of halfback material on hand
during the remainder of the season.
Boyle, the man who was expected to
play a sensational game at quarter-
back, was placed at right half during
the entire signal drill, and the wise
ones are predicting that he will have
a chance at a half back's job in the
0, S. U. game. Huebel has been show-
ing up exceptionally well at quarter
and with Bushnell to fall back on the
predictions that Boyle will be devel-
oped into a halfback on account of
his ability as a broken field runner,
do not sc ,n entirely 'far-fetched.
Yost apparently realizes that under
Coach Richards, of 0. S. U., the Buck-a
eye players are preparing to give
Michigan the battle of their lives. The
Michigan game is the big contest t
O. S. U., and inasmuch as the gax#
will probably be the last in which the
two teams will hook up, on account of
0. S. U.'s having joined the conference,
the game is being touted as one which
w ill be well worth seeing.
"Jack the Peeper" has been main-
taining a reign of terror among

for the last few nights. The nocturnal
prowler was detected last night peer-

America's social organization, Booker
T. Washington addressed a large au-
dience in University hall yesterday
The speaker said he thought that in
the heart of every honest American
citizen, colored or white, there is an
appreciation of what square chance
really is, that he has appreciated it,
and that fair play given to the negro
is what will contribute to lifting him
from the mire where he was left after
"The colored race is a youthful one,"
said Dr.' 'Washington. "As a young
race, it is apt to make mistakes, and
these istakes have prejudiced the
white citizens against it, but at the
present time, methods of education
which are being given to the colored
man in the south, are teaching him
the real dignity and beauty of work,
manual as well as mental,
"In Tuskegee where my own. school
is located, we have 1600 students,
learning the various branches of high-
er education. There the real needs
of the colored man are administered
to. He is taught farming; not agri-
culture, and the girl is taught sewing,
cooking, and substantial housework,
not domestic science. Nothing is
taught that will inspire him to hold
any so-called dignified views on work,
rather be is taught that work means
"Conditions in the south have never
been conducive to the easy education
of the negro. He has been neglected,
but we have fought for him, and the
influences of a number of the colored
institutions in the Southland are being

Michigan spirit and the desire for
good fellowship of the right sort tri-
umphed last night, when one of the
Union campaign workers presented
the slip that put the membership at the
2,000 mark. It was a great victory
for the Union and its work, and the
clubhouse was filled with congratu-
lations when the officials knew that
the thing they had worked for this
fall had been accomplished and their
fondest hopes realized.
The fact that the mark has been
reached will not keep the membership
campaign from continiOing, however.
Hardly had the cry of "2,000" been
echoed before the slogan was changed
to 2,100. It stands there now, a goal
for the men to work for and it is ex-
pected they will meet it.

SEVERAL COUNTS CLOSE
Spelling of Candidate's Name Creates
IDispute Among Seniors In
Voting at the student council elec-
tions yesterday afternoon was very
light, due to the lecture of Booker T.
Washington. For the same reason the
junior lits postponed their election un-
til this afternoon at 4:00 o'clock. The
homeops were unable to hold their
meeting, as the councilman in charge
failed to appear. All the other classes
held their elections in spite of the
small numbers that turned out.
Complications arose at the senior
law election because two voters mis-
spelled the name of their candidate.
Technically, the votes could have been
thrown out, but the sentiment of the
class, on rising vote, was so over-
whelmingly in favor of counting the
ballots, since the intention of the Vot-
ers was clear, that the election was
carried out. Had these two votes
been thrown out, it would have chang-
ed the result, as the official count
stood: Louis F. Schroeder, 35; Harold
F. Pelham, 34.
At the election of the senior tits
a very close race developed.'The vote

sulted as follows: H. Wilson, 15; R.
Spinning, 14; M. Griswold, 13; CTrIb-
le, 12. D. Rheinhart defeated G. Kerr
19 to 12 in a ballot to decide 4a tie
for the opponent of R. Bassett to fill
the unexpired term of "Freddie"
'Gould. On the ballot to fill this place
Rheinhart also won, receiving 19 votes
against 15 for Bassett
The senior engineer election devel-
oped the most exciting race. At this
meeting the names were posted on
the board and the tally clerk .made
the count in view of the class. The
result was in doubt until the very last
ballot was counted, which gave Brown
the margin of one over Otto. Until the
last three ballots were recorded it was
any-one's race. The final result was:
R. Drudy, 31; G. F. Brown, 28; J. Otto,
27; A. Kuhn, 26.
The junior engineers election result-
ed as follows: W. G. Patterson, 34;
L. J. Kelliher, 28; A. Eckhert, 15; S.
