Race to Start from Ferryi Field at
10 O'Clock; Fast Time is

Everything is set for the cross coun-
try race with the Detroit "Y" this
morning. The run will start from
Ferry field at 10 o'clock, and all men
who have been training with either the
fast or slow squads havc been request-
ed to appear in the suits and run
in the race.
It has not been ascertained how
many men will come with the Detroit
team, but it is expected that they will
furnish keen competition for the Var-
sity. Former races have proved the
stamina of the "Y" men.
Contrary to early predictions, only
12 names have been entered in the
Eastern Intercollegiate cross country
race. Eligibility has kept the number
of possible entries down to the dozen

are: Captain Carroll, Dennee, Donnel-

SHAR1P SHOOTER GIES
SKILLFUL EXHIBITION
Lieutenant Parker Illustrates Use of
Jlife, Shot-un and Pump-
Lieutenant Parker, representing the
Peters Cartridge company, gave an
exhibition of shooting on south Ferry
field yesterday afternoon, lie showed
a large array of feats and constantly
brought applause from the crowd for
his accuracy.
One of the most spectacular tricks
which Mr. Parker did was with the
pump-gun. He placed two bottles on
a block of wood, one bottle on top of
the other, and then at a distance of
about 10 feet broke the lower bottle,
and before the upper bottle fell to the
block, smashed it also. The pumping
was done so rapidly that most of the
audience failed to see the movement.
Another trick with the pump-gun was
the breaking of three eggs, thrown
,simultaneously into the air.
In order to exhibit the high power
bullet, he split a tomato can. He used
a 30-30 bullet and on the contact of
the metal with the liquid, an immense
pressure of equal intensity is brought
to bear on the can and it bursts im-
mediately. Coach Yost drew plaudits
from the crowd by accomplishing the
same feat with a stationary can at a
distance of about 15 feet.

Ithaca Lad Gains
Fame Over Night
Nineteen-Year-Old Cornell Halfback
Kicks Himself Into Prom-
Inence In One Game
Ithaca, N. Y., Oct. 29.-To enter his
first big football game unheralded and
unsung, and to wake up the next morn-
ing to find himself famous, is the
somewhat unusual experience of Fritz
Shiverick, right half-back of the Cor-
nell-Varsity eleven, who at the age of
19 has kicked himself into football
prominence and won praise from the
leading critics of the country. By his
wonderful work in the Harvard sta-
dium, where he outclassed the great
Mahan, getting off twisters against a
strong wind with such accuracy and
force that they travelled sixty, seventy
and even eighty yards, Shiverick won
a place for himself among the football

kickers of all time. It is doubtful if
the great Barrett could have gotten
the distance that Shiverick got or if
he could have placed his punts with
better judgment.
They tell this story of Barrett and
Shiverick. When the football practice
began this fall Head Coach Sharpe had
to find a new halfback and a new full-
back to fill vacancies caused by the
graduation of Collyer, Philippi and
Shuler. - He looked about among his
men and thought he would give Shiv-
erick a tryout. After a week's work
Barrett, who had been watching Shiv-
erick closely, said: "There's a boy
who has everything. He will come
through fine. He will fill the bill in
great shape, and'he will make a name
for himself if he gets the opportunity."
Barrett was the unconscious agent
of creating this opportunity, for it is
probable that had Barret not been in-
jured and had remained in the Har-
vard game, he himself would have done
most of the punting and Shiverick
would have had but little chance.

;yracie Eleven Comes to Ann Arbor
This 3loruing Confidetnt of
C Winning
M liE f IFTS IN THE BACKFIELD
Syracuse, N. Y., Oct. 29.-Full of
confidence as they were speeded on
their way by practically the entire
student body, 24 members of the Syra-
cuse Varsity started at 10 o'clock this
morning for Ann Arbor, where the Or-
ange team meets Michigan tomorrow.
Before the departure of the men,
Coach O'Neil announced that Wilkin-
-on would probably be shifted to full
in place of O'Connell, and that Slater
would take Wilkinson's place at half.
Travis will probably get into the game
at one of the end positions, but it has
not been decided whether he will start.
Burns will probably be the man to go
out, as DuMoe is regarded as the bet-
ter of the two.
'The team will stop off in Detroit
over night anid will go out to Ann
Arbor on an early train. The coach
is expecting a hard battle, although he
fully expects to win. The men are so
confident that they feel that after Sat-
urday's game the Orange will have re-
venge for all the beatings Michigan
has given it in the past.
There is sufficient ground for the
confidence of the men, as the team has
thus far gone through one of the most
successful seasons since O'Neil took
charge. Princeton has been the only
team to defeat the Orange, and that
game was taken by a field gc'al. The
Tigers found it next to impossible to
win by straight football and had they
not had Tibbott, whose kicking has
been phenomenal, the game would
have been a scoreless tie.

And the stage is all set for the first
act of "The Come-Back."
Practically no money will change
hands on the result of today's game
with Syracuse.
It can't, you know. All of the spare
Michigan dollars are now in circula-
tion in Lansing.
The number of women at yester-
day's rally on Ferry field was ex-
tremely noticeable.
And incidentally we might add that
the vast majority of them didn't seem
to be lonesome or "all alone," either.
"Ring" Lardner, the well-known hli-
morist and sport writer, picks Mich-
igan to win by a 7-to-3 score.
All of which sounds encouraging
until one reflects back to a week mo,
when "Ring" picked Michigan for a
20 to-7 victory over the Aggies.

How a freshman ever dared to play
tennis on Ferry field all of yesterday
afternoon, only to walk calmly up
State street away from Ferry field
at 5:00 o'clock, promises to remain
one of the unsolved mysteries of the
year.
Reimann was out for a short time
yesterday, although he will not be in
today's game. The star tackle will
be saved until next week to insure his
presence in the Cornell struggle. "Pat"
Smith is staying out for the same rea-
sons.
Captain Rose of the Syracuse team
is billed to start the game at half-
back. However, there is a chance that
he may be shifted to the line, making
room for "Chief" Newberry in the
backfield. The "chief" is reputed to
be a sure enough Indian.
