After a week of inactivity, due to
AGGRESSIVENESS, FEATURE the fact that they had no game sched-

With only a couple of the regulars
in the lineup, the Varsity nosed out
the scrubs yesterday afternoon, scor-
ing two touchdowns as against one
for the reserves.
The scrubs hung up their lone tally
when Johnson threw a pass to Loucks,
which that worthy gathered in on the
10-yard line and scampered across for
a touchdown. This occurred during
the closing portions of the scrimmage,
at which time the reserves were given
the ball continuously, to test the Var-
sity defense. The scrubs were on
their 30-yard line at the time, and
"Red" hurled the ball 20 yards to.
Loucks, who evaded a tackler and
chalked up the only tally accredited
to his team.
Perhaps the most spectacular and
sensational bit of play that enlivened
the afternoon was provided by Rehor.
He recovered a fumble and sprinted
(the term is used advisedly) 50 yards
before he was overhauled and nailed.
The big 255-pound linesman took pos-
session of the pigskin on his own 35-
yard line and tore all the way down
to within ten yards of the goal be-
fore his flight was checked. The speed
that he displayed was a surprise to
everyone, and he might have scored a
touchdown but for the fact that he
persisted in looking around to see how
close his pursuers were drawing. Even
"Hal" Smith, "Obie" O'Brien and " Al"
Robinson are forbidden to do this, but
"Fat" is unacquainted with the finer
points in the sprinting game and he
turned to look behind.
It was a splendid performance and
recalled the days of "Bubbles" Pat-
terson, who gathered in a Case for-
ward pass one afternoon and ploughed
50 yards dead ahead for a touchdown
and the fulfillment of a life-long am-
Niemann was playing center, with
Norton at tackle. Captain Cochran
was at guard for a time, but left early.
The Varsity scored the two touch-
downs, marching straight down the
field for both.j
The interference was better than'
that exhibited last Saturday, and the
first string men were breaking
through the line more frequently than
they did against M. A. C. Their play
was considerably more aggressive
than it was against the Michigan Ag-
gies, in addition.
Princeton Gives Team Work Attention
Princeton, N. J., Oct. 26.-Plans for
the week were definitely put into effect
by the coaches today. Emphasis was
placed on the work of the team to-,
gether in concentrated teamwork. The {
individual playing is good but there
is still room for much improvement
in the team's unison play. A secret
scrimmage between the first and sec-
ond Varsity men on University field
was the order of the day. The scrubs
took the offensive most of the time,
and although the work of the regulars
on offense is regarded as good, today's
workout showed that the defense is
still inadequate..

tiled last Saturday, the yearling squad
is hard at work in preparation for the
contest with Heidelburg university
on Saturday. Following Monday's
scrimmage, Douglass was contest
with having his charges engage in sig-
nal practice, mixing in some exercise
in blocking and tackling the mumi-
abused dummy. "Doug" also thought
that the south football field needed
some leveling, so he brought forth his
choicest and heaviest linemen and let
them get a little charging practice
against the machine, while he had his
backs rest on top of the apparatus, in
order that the field might be packed
down in case he wished to use the
gridiron in future mauling for his
husky pets.
The coach promises some changes
in the personnel of his warriors for
the week-end struggle with the Buck-
eyes. In the line, Bevins has been
shifted from center to guard to make
room for Nash, a Saginaw recruit.
Nash is a little fellow, but has fallen
into the habit of being in the way
of altogether too many plays to be
sitting on the sidelines, so Douglass
has moved him to the first team. The
yearling tutor also thinks he has
solved the problem of the backfield,
which has been giving him some
trouble heretofore. Sparks, the Jack-
son boy, has fully convinced everyone
that he can take care of the pivot po-
sition acceptably, and will probably
start in that position against the Tif-
finites. Eggert, the early-season
quarterback, has been shifted to half,
while Hanish will make his All-Fresh
debut at the other halfback position.
Big Snider will occupy the space be-
tween the two.
Most of the injured players are
again donning their togs daily. Both
"Russ" Cornelius and McLaughlin
were out again and pronounced them-
selves ready for action. This leaves
only Sparks and Mead still unfit, but
Sparks will be there when the whistle
blows. Mead, one of the best bets
for an end position, will probably be
out of it for the rest of the season.
His hip was fractured some days ago,
and the physicians have so far given
him little reason to make him believe
that he can get into a contest this
This afternoon the Varsity will mix
things up with the fresh in what will
probably be the last scrimmage for
the yearlings this week.
Coach Hinkey Shakes Up Men of Eli
New Haven, Conn., Oct. 26.-Coach
Frank Hinkey made a number of
changes today in preparation for the
Colgate game Saturday. The men of
weight were shifted to the bench and
the hopes of many promising men
were shattered. There was a brief
signal drill in which attention was put
upon individual instruction. The
coaches will continue the policy of
light drills all during the week.
Lunches delivered.
Call 1107.

In accordance with the resolution
passed by the Board of Control of
athletics at their last meeting, definite
plans have now been laid for number-
ing the members of the Varsity foot-
ball squad.
It has been decided to use a white
numeral, six inches in height, which
will be sewed on the back of the blue
jerseys now being used by the team.
This combination should afford a
ready means for the identification of
all the players and should be a boon
to spectators and press correspondents
The numbers run from 2 to 32, with
number 13 missing. It is the general
idea that even the most fearless spirits
on the Varsity didn't care to flirt with
old Dame Misfortune by picking out
her favorite ill-luck omen.
Beginning with Saturday's - contest
with Syracuse, the men will bear the
following numbers:
C. C. Smith ......... ... . 2
J. Maulbetsch............... . 3
C. E. Benton...........,. 4
J. B. Catlett................ . . 5
L. S. Roehm.. .. ..........6
M. F. Dunne...... ...... 7
K. S. Staatz .................., 8
P. T. Raymond ............ . .. 9
W. D. Cochran .............10

weighs 240, his loss would pull down
the average considerably.
White, who plays opposite Schlach-
ter, is the real mammoth of the team.
He would balance a weight of 273
pounds, and it is easy to see that some
of the Wolverine forwards, who are
reputed to be weak this year, will
have their hands full trying to stop
this man.
Johnson and Cobb, the regular
tackles, give their weights as 189 and
205, respectively. McDonough, the
center, is the light-weight of the
bunch, as he claims only 173 pounds.
Fresh bits Scrimmage '19 Engineers;
Announce Schedule for This
South Ferry field was a scene of
activity yesterday afternoon, so many
teams working out that it was almost
impossible to identify all of them.
Scrimmage was held between the
fresh lits and the fresh engineers with
the purpose of eliminating some of
the material and to get a line on the
men before the teams are picked. Al-
though there seemed to be quite a
few frosh who evidently never had a
ball in hand before, it was a good
scrap from first to last. Owing to the
large crew on the field it was a hard
matter to pick out all of the stars, but
the intramural coaches were able to
size up several of the men who showed
to advantage. The material appears
light on the field, but there is no lack
of pep. Honors went to the fresh en-
gineers, who scored a touchdown.
Practice yesterday included the
J-tits, the senior lits, the senior laws,
the all-dent aggregation and the
J-laws. One other team kept their
identity a secret. In view of the
games scheduled for Thursday and
Saturday, the various teams are grow-
ing wary of scouts and practice is be-
coming of a secret nature.
Managers of the teams are pointing

their practice towards their first
games. It is rumored in the senior
lit camp that the fresh lits are going
to give them a little workout Thurs-
day. All is quiet elsewhere.
A new schedule has been mapped
out by the Intramural office. It has
been decided that teams will play
their first games within their respec-
tive departments and branch -over
later. Officials for the games will
be chosen by the various teals so
that each team will have an official
to watch the other team and make
things balance. It is thought that
there will be less trouble over de-
cisions than if the class athletic of-
fice appointed the referees and um-
pires for the games.
Games scheduled for Thursday and
Saturay are given below:,
Thursday, 3:30 o'clock, south Ferry
Junior laws vs. senior laws.
Soph lits vs. junior lits.
Senior engineers vs. junior engi-
Saturday, 10:00 o'clock, south Ferry
Soph medics vs. junior medics.
Fresh lits vs. senior lits.
Fresh engineers vs. soph engineers.
Fresh laws and other two fresh
teams reported will not play until
next week.
Many New Candidates Make Prospects
Bright for Strong Team This
Coach Fowler is pleased with the
soccer material already out and is ex-
pecting several more stars to show'
up for practice this week. The team
in prospect at present is somewhat
cosmopolitan in character. Three
Canadians are showing up to advan-
tage in practice and two natives of
China are also out doing excellent
work. A large number of soccer can-
didates is out every day and increases

steadily. Cohen, center on last year's
Varsity team, is back and in good
Suits have been ordered for the
team and are expected to arrive this
week. The possession of suits is ex-
pected to boost things and enable the
coach to pick a team in the near fu-
Games have been secured with Yp-
silanti and Battle Creek. A definite
schedule will probably be mapped out
this week. Practice will be held to-
day at 3:45 o'clock on Ferry field.

'Ghost Ball" Used by Coach in Efforts
to Build Up a Stronger
Syracuse, N. Y.., Oct. 26.-(Special.)
-Coach O'Neil did not let his men get
a chance for a breathing spell today-
He put the first and second elevens
through a hard practice, indicating
that he expects a stiff game with the
Wolverines at Ann Arbor next Sat-
Darkness had settled over the field
before the final word was said by the
Orange teacher. Before the end of the
week it is expected that the coach
will resort to the use of the "ghost
"Buck" is under the impression
that the offensive in the Brown game
was not as strong as it should have
been, and lie is going to make valiant
efforts this week to remedy the defect.
With this end in view he has been
giving new plays and formations to
the 'Varsity and the men have been
spending a lot of time mastering
Schlachter, the big guard, is injured
more seriously than was first suspect-
ed. An X-ray photograph taken after
yesterday's practice, in which the
Dutchman violated the advice of the
doctor by ent ering, showed that a
bone over his right eye is broken.
Internal injuries are suspected in ad-
dition. If he enters the game with
Michigan he will have to be given
special attention, for he has been
troubled with bleeding at the mouth.
The Ortngde line will suffer consid-
erably in weight and aggressiveness
if Schlachte r is unable to play. From
tackle tr tckle, Syracuse is able to
boast an average weight of 216
pounds. Inasmuch as the giant guard

Coach Yost and Captain Cochran
left the field early yesterday afternoon
for a fleeting visit out of the city.
Harvard was certain Mahan could
kick a field goal against Cornell, but
he didn't. Not even Eddie can drop
them over from the 65 and 70-yard
lines, and this was about as close as
Harvard ever got to Cornell's goal
It's too bad this orator Murphy
never played football. He could just
about persuade any 11 men in the
country to turn around and carry the
ball toward their own goal line three
minutes ater the game started.
Poor old Cornell!- Last Saturday
Barrett was injured and forced to re-
tire. Shiverick, the substitute, did all
the kicking, and all he did was to out-

punt Eddie Mahan, with a stiff gale
dead against him. Poor old Cornell!
When a Cornell substitute out-kicks
one of the acknowledged toe artists
of the country, handicapped by a
strong wind, and the team generally
plays rings around Harvard with the
captain and individual star missing,
one is forced to conclude that foot-
ball isn't on the decline at Ithaca,
N. Y.
One of the Syracuse guards weighs
248 pounds and the other tips the
beam at the modest figure of 273. If
both of these two boys chance to fall
on poor little "Maullie" next Saturday
afternoon at the same time, "John-
ny's" football career is pretty apt to
terminate right there, and rather
abruptly, too.

You will find it a pleasure to buy shoes here
up to the minute and we fit you very carefully.
