Ped1agogues, Presenting Strong De..
fense, Prevent Invaders
from Scoring
Inability to boot the ball effectively
on numerous occasions when within
scoring distance, caused Coach McCall
and his soccer proteges to come out
of their struggle at Ypsilanti yester-
day afternoon in a scoreless tie.
Michigan's team bombarded the ped-
agogues' territory in the greater part
of the contest, and not only its fail-
ure to squeeze in a tallying kick at
an opportune moment, but the fact
that the teachers surrounded their
goal incessantly, was responsible for
the result. The Normalites were on
the defense from start to finish and
the superior playing of McCall's men
p,roved unavailing when they pressed
toward the uprights.
'McCall, playing one of the forward
positions, easily featured the contest
with his work at tricking the oppos-
ing men. His clever side-stepping
stood out prominently throughout the
tussle. On several occasions McCall
threatened the enemies' goal and once
the ball bounded off the post which,
on account of the unregulated dis-
tance between the uprights, prevented
at least one score.
Dombooragien, t right halfback,
ran McCall a close second for honors
of the day, He also displayed consid-
erable knowledge of the soccer game,
outguessing his opponent several
times and'.dribbling the ball for long
distances without trouble. Fowler
did some excellent kicking and:
through his long drives Michigan was
able to keep the ball on Ypsi's grounda
most of the time.1
Gee, the Normal's center, sliowed up
to best advantage for his team, play-
ing hard and fast throughout the en-1

On the other 'hand, Yost will send
into the fray an eleven which will be
minus the majority of its veterans,
most of whom will see the game from
the sidelines. At ends will be seen
Benton and Whalen, both new men to
the positions and concededly weak in
the fact of the tried opposition which.
they will be forced to face. Zieger,
who seems destined to start at quar-
terback, will be another decidedly
weak spot in the Wolverine machine.
The injured Reimann will probably
start in his old place at left tackle,'
shoving Watson into Rehor's guard.
The big lineman will probably be giv-
en a chance, however, before the game'
Is over. Dunne and Staatz are both
in poor physical condition, and Train-
er Farrell reported tonight that he
doubted that they would be able to
get into the fray, even though they
were sorely needed.
Yost tonight announced that he was
still intending to start Johnny Lyons
at right halfback. Lyons is one of the
few men on the Michigan machine
who played agains the Methodists last
year, Captain James Raynsford, Mc-
Hale, Cochran and Benton being the
others. When the Men of Yost won
their 43 to 7 victory over Syracuse
on Ferry field in 1913, Benton played
a fullback for a part of the game. This
year he will be seen at an end, and it
will be his second appearance at that
post. He participated in only a part
of the Aggie clash last Saturday at
a flank, and is still too new to 'the
post to make a good showing.
The following is the lineup which;

open meeting at 7:45 o'clock tomor-

Mr. Osborne is candidate for re-elec-
tion on the Republican ticket for gov-
ernor, having served his first guber-
natorial term in 1910-12. He was re-
gent of the university for many years
and resigned his position on the board
upon election ,to the governorship in
1910. After completing his. term as
state executive, Mr. Osborne took an
extensive trip around the world. He
made a special study of South Ameri-
ca and Africa and is known as an au-
thority upon subjects which deal with
those continents.
In addition to his address of the
evening, Mr. Osborne will speak at the
Y. M. C. A. meeting at 0:00 o'clock
tomorrow evening at the Majestic the-
ater, concerning his trip around the
world. This speech will precede the
regular Sunday evening address to be
delivered by Dr. Norman E. Richard-
son of Boston. Mr. Osborne will also
speak before the Christian Endeavor
Society of the Presbyterian church at
6:30 o'clock.
Mr. Osborne is widely known as a
virile speaker and it is believed that
his talks will prove popular with the
students and other alike. During his
stay in Ann Arbor, Mr. Osborne will
be the guest of Regent Junius E. Beal,
of he university.
Forty candidates for the cross-coun-
try team ran against time yesterday
for the first time this season, their
course consisting of the rough roads
to Ypsilanti, a distance approximating
seven miles. The time of the faster
squad was 41 minutes.
Two groups, one led by Captain
Trelfa and the other by Floyd L.
Young, set out from Waterman gym-
nasium yesterday afternoon at 4:15
o'clock. A five minute handicap was
given the slower contingent and the
two squads arrived at their destina-
tion at the same time. Of the 40 start-
ers 32 completed the jaunt, five mem-
bers of the slower gang dropping out
before half the distance was covered.

Gives Finishing Polish to Strategy
in Final Practice 3efore
Wolverine Tussle
(Special to The Michigan Daily)
SYRACUSE, N. Y., Oct. 23.-Light
practice in preparation for the Mich-
igan game was Coach O'Neil's pro-
gram for the 'Orangemen this after-
noon. After a hard scrimmage with
the freshmen yesterday, he decided to
give his heroes a rest in view of the
Wolverine struggle, which Syracuse
men and their coach look ,upon as an
easy battle for the Orange.
In spite of the fact that Seymore
will be out of the game, Coach O'Neil
does not seem worried as he has a
strong third year man in Johnson who
will take the veteran's place at quar-
terback. The practice this afternoon
was in the form of a polishing off of
rough edges. Johnson, new at the job
as a regular, although it is his third
year on the squad, was given the last
touches in the trick plays which have
been devised for the confusion of the
Ann Arbor men.
After the afternoon workout, the
squad went through an evening's work
at play in the class room, working on
the plays and receiving last pointers
from O'Neil. A signal quiz completed
the wrk and the final preparations.

when he was thrown from the rear
platform of an interurban car at Yp-
McKenzie was a member of the
cross country team which ran from
Ann Arbor to Ypsilanti yesterday af-

just this side of the interurban station.
He was thrown on his back and head
and was unconscious when picked up.
After being revived, he was brought
to Ann Arbor on a Michigan Central
train and was taken to the University
hospital. It was reported by the hos-

Crawford and Mack Slated to Play Off
Final Round of Tournament
on Ferry Field Courts
This Morning
Codd's Advantage in Service Offset
by Sureness of Opponent's
Ground Strokes
Play in the semi-final round of the
all-comers tennis tournament for the
championship of the University of
Michigan, and for the Comstock tro-
phy, was completed yesterday after-
noon when, C. Crawford and C. N.
Mack qualified for the finals by de-
feating J. S. Switzer and J. W.,Codd,
Crawford and Mack will meet in
the final round on the Ferry field ten-
nis courts this morning at 10:00
o'clock. Athletic books will admit to
the match which is to be played on
the courts in front of the tennis grand-
stand. Chairman I. Reindel, '15E, of
the tennis committee has not made
the appointment of officials as yet, but
it is assured that some member of the
faculty interested in tennis will take
the referee's stand.
Switzer started his first set with
Crawford with a slashing attack which
proved ineffective because of lack of
accuracy, and he lost to the latter in
a 6-0 set, in which Crawford did
nothing but play a purely defensive
game. The second set was almost a
duplicate of the first except for a few
flashes of real form which Switzer
showed. The leading point came in
the seventh game, when with the score
4-2 and Switzer serving, the game1
went to deuce 12 times. Crawford
broke through and won that and the
next, which gave him the set at 6-2.
Mack's steadiness gave him the de-
cision over Codd in two 6-2 sets.
Codd started the first set with a back
court driving game but was outplayed
at this style of game by Mack, whose
ground strokes and placing stood him
in good stead. Mack's game through=-
out the match was purely defensive
while Codd played a game of attack.
In the second set he chose the net as
the point from which to direct his at-
tack and in this his usual strong
point, he proved to be distinctly off
form. Codd's service which gave him
about 15 aces, was his strength while
the winning power of Mack lay in his
ability to outlast his opponent in a

ing the great backfield quartet intact.
Dunn, H. Schultz, Raymond and Smith,
