Michigan has had since the critical
season following the withdrawal of the
Wolverines from the Western Confer-
ence. The Pennsy game this fall will
mark the dedication of the south leg
of the $285,000 concrete stadium which
is planned for Ferry field. Never in
previous years have so many promis-
ing "prep" school stars of gridiron,
diamond and cinders entered the Maize
and Blue institution. In baseball,
Michigan retains her intercollegiate
championship nine almost intact.
Track prospects are also good. But
in football, the real milestone of Wol-
verine athletic history stands.
Harvard's stadium will be the scene
of the first representative intersection-
al gridiron struggle on October 31. For
years the sporting public as well as
college men, have clamored for.a real
test of supremacy between the east
and west. Yielding to this pressure,
Michigan's board in control of athlet-
ics last fall accepted the invitation of
the Harvard management to journey
to Cambridge for a g'ame this fall.
Opinions as to the wisdom of sched-
uling the game have been conflict-
ing. Head Coach Fielding H. Yost was
keenly disappointed to have such an
all-important battle arranged when he
lost an All-American halfback and
practically his entire line. Craig, Pat-
erson, Pontius, Musser, Allmendinger,
Torbet and Traphagen are lost to the
Wolverine wizard; and filling their
shoes will not be the easiest task in
the world. On the other hand, Percy
Haughton los'es but one real veteran.

ability to build a substantial forward
wall out of comparatively inexperienc-
ed material.
There are some favorable features
pointing towards success, however.
Michigan began preliminary practice
a week earlier than usual this fall,
and mid-week games have been re-
stored to the schedule. Nine games
will be played this fall for the first
time since 1905, in an effort to develop
this year's team earlier in the sea-
son. These two departures from re-
cent custom are another break from
conference rulings which Michigan
has so long observed, despite her with-
drawal. The Wolverine athletic au-
thorities, on announcing the new poli-
cy in a statement "cheerfully admit-
ted" that all hope of return was now
Several critics have set forth claims
that the coming battle would be re-
garded as a preliminary one by Har-
vard. The ridiculous nature of this
contention is shown by the date, which
is the latest one upon which either
school could play. It comes just be-
fore the annual battles with Pennsyl-
vania and Cornell, for Michigan; and
precedes the Princeton game on the
Harvard schedule.
While predictions as to the chances
for Michigan success could not be re-
liably ventured at this early date, the
showing of the Michigan line in the
opening game with De Pauw Univer-
sity Wednesday will be a good gauge
of Wolverine prospects.

divided into 12 sections, each with a

six of these sections will be ready

ready for the Pennsylvania contest*
crowds on November 7.
The workmen are at present plac-
ing the wooden planks that will be
laid on the concrete to form a more
comfortable seating surface. This is
the only part of the construction of
this stand yet uncompleted, but it is
slow and tedious work so that it is
not figured to throw open the entire
stand until late in the season.
All exits and entrances to the 'new
stand will be from underneath
through flights of steps leading to the
front of the seats. Enough of these
flights are provided so that conges-
tion will be avoided to a great extent
in filling the stands, and will allow
of their being rapidly emptied.
At the big games each year the
usual arrangements will be made for
box seats constructed over the run-
ning track on both sides of the field.
The new stand will not be used as
the Michigan cheering section, but
will be used to accommodate the visi-
tors and other spectators.
Although this one stand of concrete
surrounded still by others of wooden
construction, constitutes less than a
third part of the final horseshoe with
seats for 45,000 spectators, it will aid
materially in taking care of the num-
bers that will be sure to flock here

Supervised Coacing of Football
One of Innovations to Be


Director Rowe promises intramural
athletes in 1914-1915 an even better
year than any that have gone before,.
not only in the number of activities
in which they may take part, but also
in the quality of the sports.
Soccer's increasing popularity has
won for it a place as one of the ma-
jor intramural activities. The sched-
ule which was too short last year to
bring out the best in the men, has been
enlarged, and will include two games
with the Battle Creek Institute of
Physical Culture, and one tilt with
Ypsilanti. Besides these three games,
tentative dates have been arranged
with two teams from Canadian col-
Class, football, which last year was
responsible for developing some prom-
ising varsity material for the team
that will meet Harvard, is also to be
raised to a higher plane by the intro-
duction, of skilled coaching. With
competent men watching over the
class football enthusiasts, and devel-
oping those that appear most promis-


Two other regulars leave, but their
successors both played more than two"
thirds of the Yale and Princeton gam-
es last fall, and Yost considers that
he is, going against ten veterans.
Brickley, Mahon, Hardwick and Lo-
gan, the crimson backfield, is intact.
In addition, the rush line is practically
retained entire. Yost has four regu-
lar's from last fall's team, although.
there are nine "M" men eligible. Hugh-
itt at quarter, Galt at right half, Lyons
at right end, and Captain Raynsford
on the line are the only real veterans
on the Wolverine squad. Maulbetsch
and Splawn, the two sensational re-
cruits from the All-Fresh, make a cap-
able backfield, with Catlett and Bush-
nell, two "M" men, to fall back on.
The Wolverine line, however, is prov-
ing a hard problem; and Michigan's
ing, it will be no surprise if the next
year's varsity finds itself indebted to
the intramural department.
With the return of the runners to
Ann Arbor, Director Rowe expects to
do a little instruction in his own line
of sport. The cross country men will
be out .on the high-ways training hard
for the possession of one of the cups.
Class relay men will begin training for
the big races that come between the
halves of the Pennsylvania-Michigan
game. From these two lines .of en-
deavor it is expected that material
will be developed to bolster up Michi-
gan's track team in 1915..

Engineering Team Takes First Honors
In Inter-Class Baseball
While the summer session athletics
have not been developed to any great
extent at Michigan, those that cared
for baseball and tennis had ample op-
portunity during the past summer to
participate in their favorite pastimes.
The Michigan Union conducted a
series of tennis tournaments with
Russell V. Allman, grad., and W. B.
Palmer, '15, in charge.
It has been customary for the past
three summers to organize a summer
session interdepartmental baseball
league, and the past summer was no
An 18 game schedule was played
with a total of 66 men participating.
The team representing the engineer-
ing department caried off the premier
honors, with the literary team ranking
At the conclusion of the series, the
management picked a team from the
league players, which defeated the
Ann Arbor Independent team.
The personnel of the "All Star"
team was as follows; Achi, c; Wheat
and Galbraith, p; Sisler, lb; Keiser,
2b; Huebel, ss; Hughitt, 3b; Donnelly,
lf; Stewart, cf; Eaton, rf; and Knowl-
son and Thomas, utility.

Prospects for another successful
All-Fresh football team appear to be
unusually bright this year, with the
stars of three state college teams al-
ready on hand. Coach Prentiss Doug-
lass will again have the squad in
charge, and with the material should
be able to develop another strong elev-
"Ike" Field, captain and quarter on
the Albion college eleven is out for
field general. Field weighs 165 pounds
and is a star in three branches of ath-
letics. Brunson, of St. Johns, with
two years' experience on the Olivet
college team, is out for -one of the
halves. The - Schultz brothers, Michi-
gan intercollegiate stars from Alma,
are also out for the backfield. Both
of these men made reputations at the
upstate college last year, where they
starred in track as well as on the grid-
Candidates with big high school rep-
utations behind them are as plentiful
as ever this fall. C. Smith, of Bay
City Eastern, was one of the first men
to report for work, and his 180 pounds
make him appear a likely candidate
for the fullback position, .although
Willard, a 200 pounder from Topeka,
Kansas, is also out for the place. The
Huss twins, Willard and, Ward, from
Three Rivers, weighing 185 and 190
pounds respectively, are among the
line candidates.
Jack Dunn and Otto Eberwein, both
backfield men, are the two most likely
local candidates. Ed Shadford, quar-
ter and captain of Ann Arbor high's
squad last year tore the muscles of
his shoulder in a practice scrimmage
with the high school team last week,
and as a result he will be lost to the
Among the candidates who have
been working out since last week are:
Pence, Blissfield, 200 pounds; P. T.
Raymond, Arthur Hill, Saginaw, 165
pounds; H. A. Knowlson, Holbrook
school, Ossining, N. Y., 140 pounds;
William T. Crandall, Bellville, 150
pounds; William W. Scott, Washing-
ton, D. C., Central high, 172 pounds;
Walter Laurenz, Duluth Central, 158
pounds; Leon Friedman, Circleville, 0.;
N. J. Brazall, Tacoma, Wash., 152
pounds; and A. D. Brown, D. U. S.,
198 pounds.
