SYRACUSE, N. Y., Oct. 26.-An aer-
oplane rising gracefully from the
ground, only to fall a mangled heap*of
machinery; a rocket starting on its
flight in a golden shower of sparks,
only to plunge downward in .the dark-
ness-such was the Michigan team at
Syracuse yesterday. Starting in a:
rush of strength and versatility that
could not be brooked, plowing through
the Orange line, skirting the ends,&and
outguessing, the easterners, the Wol-
verines scored once, threatened again,
and then found themselves fighting a
vain and desperate battle against then
bitter darkness of defeat. The ma-
chine that had sent the hopes of Mich-
igan rooters soaring those first few
minutes, met its match and failed, and
the hopes of the enthusiasts came tum-
bling down like the burnt-out rocket:
After the first period Syracuse awoke,
-not the old Syracuse team, but a
brand new one, full of fight, working
as a unit. Tired of the losing end,
and scenting the victory in the moist-
ure-laden air it came back. But it did
not turn as one "man, nor as the indi-
vidual work of every man, but with
machine-like precision it blocked,
tackled, plunged, and above all follow-
ed the ball, until the hitherto invin-
cible Michigan team crumpled and
three times was its sacred goal line
crossed. It was no fluke victory; it
was not two unmatched teams; it was
the consistent,. unflagging fight of a
united team against onie taken by sur-

the third Orange-shirted player had
flashed across the line. And so it end-
ed as the Wolverines dragged them-'
selves from the field, 18 to 7.
Defeat Comes as Surprise.
Michigan had been touted to win
without the slightest trouble. Dope-
sters and followers of the sport through
out the country conceded the game to
the Wolverines, and did not give it
another thought. It might have been
this foregone conclusion atmosphere
that played its part; that aided in the
costly amazement when Michigan
found the humble easterners-to be Tar-
tars. It is always the unexpected de-
feat that hurts the most; it is always
the highly-praised aeroplane that
whirls only to the ground, and the
costly rocket that only fizzles. Mich-
igan has had its flight; has had its
tumble. The day of experiment is
over and from now on it will be a ma-
chine built to weather the easiest and
the hardest, and built to win.
The game was played in the drench-
ing rain that made the Stadium field a
duck pond, that soaked the bleachers
where the faithful rooters held forth,
and dampened the spirits of the teams,
-that is until Syracuse started. The
knee-deep mud interfered with the us-
ual star work of Craig and prevented
the little half from pulling off his
wonderful runs. It aided perhaps the
smashing line-bucks of Thomson, but
it aided Syracuse more. It aided Syra-
cuse because men working together in
the mud can do more than eleven men
working separately. The rain stopped
a far larger attendance and the major
number of seats in the big athletic
theater were empty.
-Castle, the little right half of the
'Orange team, was the particularly
bright star of the gloomy day. It was
he who made all of the Syracuse plays,
and it was his end runs that enabled
the easterners to claim the honors of
the day. Time and time again he skirt-
ed the ends and made spectacular open
field runs, once being pulled down
from behind by the fleet Jimmie Craig.;
And it was Castle, who in the last mo-
ments of the game, picked up Huebel's
fumble and made it certain by dashing
over 55 white lines. But it was the
unified work of the Syracuse team
that made Castle's work possible, and
the credit must be given to the whole

Result of Straw Ballot..
Total vote cast .........1084
Roosevelt .............487
* * * * * * * * * *




With almost 400 ballots cast in the
straw ballot contest yesterday, the
Bull Moose leader passed Wilson in
the race and now leads the New Jer-
sey governor by 36 votes. Taft made
a material gain, and is now 66 votes
ahead of Debs, while Chafin, with six
votes, is holding the last position.
The feature of the heavy vote was
the strength showed by the Progres-
sives in the lit and engineering de-
partments. Roosevelt now leads in
five departments,-the lit, engineering,
medic, pharmic, and the graduate
school and the faculty, while Wilson
is ahead in the law, dent and homeop
departments. Of the 41 states, one ter-
ritory and six nations that are repre-
sented in the vote, up to the present
date, the Democrat leader has carried
27, Roosevelt .leads in 13, while Taft
is in the lead in but one state.
Owing to the unusual interest that
has -been taken in the contest, it has
been decided to continue it until Wed-
nesday. Thus the last ballot will ap-
pear in the issue on that morning, in-
stead of this morning as was original-
ly intended, and the final count will
appear in the paper on Thursday
morning, instead of Tuesday.
In order to make the vote represen-
tative of the sentiment of the entire
student body, every one who has not
voted is urged to do so before the' con-
test is ended. But few votes have
been cast by women, and they are es-
pecially urged to exercise their right
and vote.

Come-Back is Predicted.
Michigan has been defeated, badly
beaten by a team that has been trim-
med by three prominent eastern col-
leges by overwhelming scores. Per-
haps its standing has been lowered in
the East. But Michigan has been' de-
feated before and has never failed
to come back. Last year it fell.before
Cornell and then wiped out Pennsyl-
vania. Three years it was taken by
surprise and trimmed by Notre Dame,
and yet that same year defeated both
Minnesota and Pennsylvania, ranking
itself among the leaders of the coun-
try. There is still a chance to .retrieve
the lost laurels, for the three big gam-
es are yet to come and, two of them
with stronger teams than Syracuse.
Because Michigan was defeated it
does not follow that Michigan has
quit, for it will come back in a man-
ner that will leave no doubt as to its
ability and merits.
The game started as the other three
big games at Syracuse this year have
started, the visitors going up the field
with a rush and landing a touchdown
in three minutes. Again they started
and carried the ball to the Orange four
yard line, when something happened.
Syracuse came to and held, and made
confident by that trick 'it started -for
more. Michigan was taken by sur-
prise and seemed dazed for the mo-
ment until the easterners had tallied.
They tallied again and then Michigan
woke up and stopped the rush, at the
same time seeking to win. But it was
too great a task,-Syracuse had tasted
of victory and would not let go. Then;
in the last few minutes a fumble--the+
one bit of luck in the game,-and

Thomson and Craig Star.
For Michigan Capt. Thomson and
Craig were the big men. It was the
leader's line-bucking that was respon-
sible for most of Michigan's gains, and
it was his toe that drove the Orange
back from the desired goal line again.
and again. Craig did not shine on of-
fense, for the wet and slippery field.
prevented the little sprinter from get-
ting in his deadly work, but on de-
fense he was a tower of strength and
more than once he caught men after
they were clear.
It must be frankly admitted that the
Michigan ends were not up to form
to say the least. It was there that
Syracuse made its gain, and while not
all of its attempts were successful,
enough of them were, and were so'suc-
cessful that the Orange won. Runs
