LINEUP WILL BE SAME WHICH

Visitors Arrived Yesterday Morning
and Worked Out on
"Dan" McGugin's fighting Commo-
dores are the attraction on Ferry field
today, the tilt with Vanderbilt opening
the series of inter-sectional clashes
which adorn the Michigan schedule
this season. Just what kind of a game
it will be was hinted by Head Coach
Yost last night, when he ordered the
first secret practice of the season for
the Varsity. Yost was aided in giv-
ing the Wolverines the final touches
by "King" Cole, the new Reserve coach,
who arrived today; "Germany" Schulz,
the assistant coach, being absent in the
east. The guard positions have been
shuffled for the tilt today, but other-
wise the lineup will be the same which
faced Mount Union on Wednesday.
The choice to start at right guard
is uncertain, but it will probably be
McHale, the veteran, who is about
ready for'work. "Mac" has been held
back this season as a result of his op-
eration, but showed plenty of "pep"
in scrimmage two days ago. If McHale
is not picked, Watson will get the po-
sition held by Whalen against Mount.
Quail will be back at left guard,
which he has held until Wednesday,
when Watson was used on account of
Quail's bruised ankle. Staatz will
again start at left end, and Roehm at
right half, as the veteran Galt will
still be kept in reserve. The coaches
are unwilling to take any chances with
the star's bad knee.
Vanderbilt's squad arrived Friday
morning, and was driven about the
city and vicinity early in the day. In
the afternoon the visitors worked out
on the Varsity gridiron, and are in ex-
Vanderbilt has won its only game
this season by a good score, although
Henderson-Brown, which is a small
school scored a touchdown on the
Commodores. McGugan has 12 letter'
men for his team this season, and
practically all the battle front except
the tackles played against the Wolver-
ines last fall, when Michigan won at
Nashville 33 to 2.
The All-Fresh game will be played
as a curtain raiser to the Varsity con-
test, the eyearlings getting into action

COACH ANNOUNCES HIS LINEUP
Freshman Coach Douglas gave his
All-Fresh squad a hard signal drill
last night in preparation for
today's , game w i t h Ypsilanti,
winding up the day's work
with a new form of conditioning exer-
cise that made a great hit with the
With all of his men in good shape
except Dunn, the yearling coach prom-
ises the visitors a good game. While
the plucky little quarterback was not
out in a suit last night, on account of
a bad leg which he hurt in the scrim-
nmage with the scrubs on Thursday,
he will be on hand for the first game
of the freshman season.
Though nothing definite is known of
the strength of the Normalites, the
first year men should be able to run up
a fairly good score on the visitors. The
work of the youngsters will be closely
watched this afternoon, for the All-
Fresh team has come to be considered
a stepping stone to the varsity.
The All-Fresh game will be called
promptly at 1:30 o'clock. The time
of quarters will be twelve minutes in
order that the preliminary game may
not interfere with the Vanderbilt game
scheduled for 2:30 o'clock. The fresh-
men will line up as follows: le, Rob-
bins; It, Ingham; lg, Pobanz; c, Howe;
rg, Ewert; rt, Willard; re, Romans;

Officers of Clinical Society .Chosen
The election of officers of the clin-

members of the hospital staff were

which may lead to independence of the
student council. Nominations for class
officers were* scheduled for 11:00
o'clock, but the class was impatient
and met before the stated hour. Thus
when the councilman in charge of the
meeting arrived, he found that the
class had already made the nomina-
J. B. Marks, acting president of the
class, said last night that his class-
mates felt that they ought to have
representation on the student council.
Informal representatives protested to
the officers of the council last year.
None of these protestations met with
fruitful results, and now the attitude
of the class is that it need not cater
to the student council, if the student
council gives it no attention.
Marks said that sentiment was strong
in the class for a student governing
board distinct and independent of the
student council. He maintained that
there was much 'discussion of such a
project by students in the medical de-
partment According to him, a form-
al petition will be made to the student
council this year, and if satisfactory
results are not forthcoming, steps will
be taken to provide for an independent
