Yost Seeks to Overcome Bockin
Faults Displayed in Aggie
With Staatz, Dunne and Smith back
in the lineup, Coach Yost returned'to
the fundamentals and rudiments of
football yesterday afternoon, devot-
ing the early portion of the practice
to blocking and tackling.
It was here that the Michigan team
appeared particularly weak in Satur-
day's struggle with the boys from M.
A. C., and the coach is endeavoring
to correct this weakness, if possible,
before the Syracuse tussle. Follow-
ing this, the "Hurry-Up" gentleman
sent two squads away in signal prac-
tice, concluding with a drill under
the lights. Staatz and Dunne were
at the two ends, with "Pat" Smith at.
fullback during a portion of the time.
Clyde Bastian also worked at this po-
sition, sharing it with the big sopho-
more. Staatz still limps a trifle, but
insists that he can stand it, and the
probabilities are that he will be hold-
ing down his former position when the
team takes the field against Syracuse
"Jack" Benton spent the biggest
share of his time punting, "Morrie"
Dunne running at end. The chances
are that Benton will start on the line
instead of in the backfield next Sat-
urday. Catlett was working at half
last night along with Maulbetsch,
"Rummy" Roehm directing the team
from his accustomed position at
Lewis Reimann limped onto the
field during the afternoon, although
he will not put on a suit this week.
The big tackle was walking with a
cane, and will be out of it at least
until the .- Ie with Syracuse is a
matter of history. The loss is Rei-1
mann is a serious one, for the tackle
is one of the most aggressive players}
on the entire squad and one of the
surest men on defense.
The coach used both Norton and
Niemann at center on the first team
yesterday afternoon, and the indica-
tions are that Niemann may get intos
the game next Saturday at the pivot
Rush Gives Princeton Alen Light Work
Princeton, N. J., Oct. 25.-Coach
Rush gave his men a good rest today
following the strenuous game witht
Dartmouth Saturday. The work will
probably be light all during the week,
although Princeton is taking not
chances with the Harvard game. The
practice was secret and was held on
the old University field, with specialt
emphasis put on signals and tackling.t

Plan to Send Six Aien to Big Race
at Franklin Field on No
veimber 20
Tryouts for the team to represent
Michigan at the Eatern Intercolle-
giate cross country race to be held
at Franklin Park, Massachusetts, on
November 20, are scheduled for today
and tomorrow. The entries for the
race must be in the hands of the of-
ficials by Saturday night, and it is
necessary to obtain a list of possible
men by the middle of the week.
The plan as proposed is as follows:
The men who desire to try out will
report at the gym for the fast squad
on either night and the team will run
at a little faster pace than usual.
Then about 15 or 20 men will be cho-
sen from the showing on these two
tryouts and their names will be en-
tered. The record of these men will
decide who will finally be chosen for
the teaw. About six men will take
tho trip.
The race is the eighth annual run
under the auspices of the Intercolle-
giate Athletic association and will be
entered by all the major colleges and
universities of the country. The course
is called the Franklin Field run.
It is a little early to determine the
stamina of the candidates as yet, and
it has not been definitely decided to
send a team, but if the men show
enough class they will take the trip.
Because of the necessity of sending in
the entry list it is important that
every man who has any ability in this
line enter the tryouts.

Home Matches
With the final round of play in the
All-Comers' Championship Tennis
tournament, organized tennis at Mich-
igan was brought to a close for the
fall on Saturday, and it will not be'
until the squad is picked in the spring,
and begins work on the cement court,
that the tennis men will be seen in
official action again.
Unofficially the men will continue
to play until the snow has to be shov-
eled off the composition court, and as
soon as it can be shoveled off in the
spring the play will begin again. In
order that too many men may not use;
the cement court in the spring a Var-
sity squad is picked, and these men
are alone allowed to work out during
the early part of the year.
The making of the schedule is now
under way, and an effort will be made
to have more of an at-home program
than has ever been secured in the
past. Last year the Wolverines played
matches every Saturday from the
time that they were able to take the
courts, and plans this year will keep
them even busier, with some mid-~
week matches.

Coach O'Neil Plans Strenuous Week
Despite Wolverine
Bear Stories
Syracuse, N. Y., Oct. 25.-(Special.)
Returning victorious over the Brown
eleven by a score of 7-0, Coach O'Neil,
of the Syracuse Varsity, immediately
started planning for the Michigan
game at Ann Arbor next Saturday.
In spite of the direful reports from
the Michigan town following the de-
feat of Michigan by the Aggies, the
coach is not counting on an easy
game next week-end. Michigan has
always fought its hardest against the
Orange, and the men are not in the
best of shape following the terrific
struggle with Brown. Hard practice
will mark the whole week, with the
hope that some of the faults which
have crept up this far will be eradi-
Schlacter, who was kicked in the
eye in the Brown game, did not appear<
for practice today. His place was
filled by Trigg, who played creditablyI
in the position. It is rumored that
Trigg will hold down a regular job3
on the line in the Michigan game.
Another substitution that may ma-t
terialize during the week is that ofl
Burns for Travis at end. The menu
appear of equal ability and it will notf
be decided for some time who willi
get the call in the Michigan game.e
Speed and weight are possessed byt
both, so there is little to choose. E
The coaches, Horr in particular, wills
spend some time this week in trainingt
the men in kicking. Captain Roset
and Cobb, the left tackle, are goodI
place-kickers and an attempt will bee
made to find a drop-kicker. One no-t
ticeable fact in the team this yearf
is that almost all the men on thes
squad are creditable punters.
The Varsity this yar looks to be as
strong and powerful* an aggregationc
as Syracuse has ever been able to1
boast. The backfield especially isa
considered to be a world-beater and
the line retains much of the beefi
which characterized it last season.-
Captain Rose, Wilkinson, Meehan,p
Raf er and Newberry are the regulars,
whom Coach O'Neil can call upon toe
assume the posts behind the line.-
Slater and O'Connell are the men whoe
go as the first substitutes.f
The regular line is composed ofs
Johnson and Cobb, tackles; Schlactera
and White guards; McDonough, cen-
ter. The ends are Travis, Burns andI
A mammoth demonstration is al-p
ready being planned for the team
when it starts for Ann Arbor. A start
was made with a mass meeting be-
fore the squad went to Providence, at
which plans for the Michigan send-off
were outlined. The committee in
charge hopes that the team will leave
Syracuse on Thursday with louder and
longer cheers ringing in their ears
than were ever heard by another team
representing the Orange.
Philadelphia, Pa., Oct. 25.-The Var-
sity reported for practice today at
Franklin field in good physical con-
dition. With the exception of Roth,
who entered the game with a sprained
ankle, and whose injury was aggra-
vated, no one sustained any injuries.
The halfback was also the recipient

of a nasty cut over the left eye.j.
A signal drill took the place of
scrimmage today for the regulars.
Penn is inclined to regard the defeat
of Saturday as a victory. The claims
are based on the fact that the eleven
held what is considered here as the
best team in the country, 'Pittsburg,
to an almost tie score. This is taken
to outweigh the poor showing of the
early season.
