SECOND VA0iTY MEN
SCORE ONE TOUCHDOWN
AC1NSTSCRUB TEAM
Clyde Bastian Only One to Cross Line
in Scrinmmage, While Varsity Goes
Through Signal Practice
ZEIGER HANDLES FIRST SQUAD
IN A 'SENCE OF "U'Ri ROEIM
STRICT SECRET PRACTICE MAIN-
TAINED BY NUMBER OF
"POLICE" AIDS
With the Varsity proper over an ad-
jacent lot running through signal prac-
tice, Coach Yost sent his substitutes
against the scrubs yesterday afternoon,
and they emerged victorious by the
other narrow margin of a lone touch-
down.
Clyde Bastian registered this, after
the Varsity seconds had ploughed the
length of the field. Bastian proved a
veritable battering ram, and he was
ably assisted by several of his running
mates, Calvin and Sharpe proving par-
ticularly effective. The second team
took possession of the ball on their
own five-yard line and marched the
length of the field, never relinquishing
possession of the ball once.
While all of this was transpiring o
the big gridiron, the real Varsity was
running through a long signal prac-
tice over on an adjoining field, : ud
the few ho n ed and favored witnesses
unite in declaring that the same spirt
that was in evidence on Monday was
on hand again. "Rummy" Roehm
wasn't out, and Zeiger was handling
the team. Coach Yost had his regular
lineup operating, and Reimann was
numbered among those present, which
in itself is a particularly gratifying bit
of news. He was out Monday, but was
not running with the team.
Coach Yost is taking no chances,
and the war zone is carefully policed
by the several trusty dogs of war who
otherwise figure as football assistants,
managers, helpers, advisers and general
aides-de-camp. These gentlemen were
under positive instructions to elimi-
nate absolutely everyone who did not
possess the countersign. The coach,
the team and the university have unit-
ed to down the Big Red squad next
Saturday, and no precautions are go-
ing to be overlooked.
Following the signal drill yesterday,
the coach hustled his men over under
the electric lights when it became too
dark, and work was resumed there.
Cornell will meet a very different
Michigan team than the one that faced
Syracuse last Saturday, and the east-
erners may run up against the neatest
little surprise package that they've
encountered this year.
Howe was working at center for the
second team in the scrimmage with
the scrubs; Norton and Pobanz were
at the guards; Rehor and Warner at
tackle; Ingham and Hildner at end;
Wickham, Calvin, Eberwein, Sharpe
and Bastian in the backfield. Weske
also got into the contest.

MANY REPORT FOR SOCCER TEAM;
STRONG AGGRECATION ASSURED
Suits to Arrive This Week; New
men will Oppose
Veterans
Coach Fwler, .of the Varsity soc-
cer team, is optimistic concerning the
outlook for a successful season. Near-
ly 20 men reported for practice yes-
terday on south Ferry field and more
are expected to don their fighting
clothes this week. According to the
coach there is some excellent ma-
terial out working and with several
experienced men back Michigan
should have a strong aggregation to
represent her in this sport.
As soon as the suits which were or-
dered from Chicago come in, regular
practice games will be played. Suits
were ordered last week butwere not
of the right kind and had to be sent
back to Chicago and new ones pro-
cured. These are expected to be given
out this week. With the uniforms in,
Coach Fowler will put the new men
to playing against the veterans in or-
der to give them the best possible
chance to learn the game.
Last year petitions were put before
the Board in Control of Athletics to
award some insignia in place of class
numerals, either in the form of a
small letter or special numeral. The
petitions were rejected on the grounds
that the sport was not important
enough to warrant the awarding of
anything more important than class
numerals, that no big games were
played, and that the game was not
sufficiently well established. The ar-
guments in favor of the proposal were
that the team was a university repre-
sentation, and that by giving letters
or special insignia there would be a
greater incentive for soccer materia
to come out and so establish the sport
on a firm foundation. It is possible
that something of the sort may be
done this year.
Two games have already been
scheduled with Ypsilanti Normal to
be played at Ann Arbor Saturday at
10:00 o'clock on Ferry field, and at
Ypsilanti on November 20. Ypsi has
had 35 men out for soccer regularly
and is expecting to furnish some keen
competition for the Michigan team.
Manager Daily, of the Ohio Wes-
leyan soccer team, has written trying
to get a game with this university to
be played about the 19th or 20th of
this month. No games have been
scheduled as yet with the Buckeye in-
stitution but action will probably be
taken shortly. The proposal was for
a two-game series, the contests to be
held alternately at each school. It is
not known how the proposal will be
met, as the Ohio team demands ex-
penses for the trip to Ann Arbor, and
as no money is taken in for soccer
here, this part of the deal of neces-
sity hangs fire. A proposition was
made to Ypsilanti by which they were
to play one game with Ohio Wesleyan
on one day and Michigan play on the
next, both teams bearing the expenses
of the visitors. In case Ypsilanti ac-
cepts the proposal, the games will
probably be arranged.

CORNELL TEAM ILL
MAE IMPORTNT USE
OF FORWARD PASSES
Varsity Squad Practices All Fall in
Preparation for Michigan and
Pennsy Games
NUMBER OF PASSES UNCOVERFD
IN LAST GAME WITH VIRGIMA
SHOWS MARKED IMPROVEMENT
ALSO AGAINST OPPONENTS'
PASSES
Ithaca, N. Y., Nov. 2.-For the past
two years, when Cornell has played
Michigan and Penn, the Red eleven
has been scored on by their opponents'
use of the orward pass, against which1
the Ithacans .eemed to have developed
no effective defense, while at the same
time their strategy and tactics called1
for the simplest sort of football, and
never did they make the aerial a acx
an important feature of their play.
This fall, however, the conditions
are reversed. The team is no: being
pointed for the Michigan game next
Saturday and for the. Penn game on
Thanksgiving day, and an important
feature of its attack is sure to be the
forward pass. For some weeks thes
Varsity has been working out a num-
ber of passes, but they were not un-
covered until Saturday's game with
Virginia Polytechnic Institute.
The team only recently has m-.,-
tered the passes, but if Saturday's
game is any indication, they will play1
an important part in the Cornell pro-
gram for the balance of the season.
Barrett used three passes in succes-
sion to score one touchdown against
Virginia, the team making 70 yards.
Not long afterward he used two to gain,
50 yards. The passes were well exe-
cuted, Barrett making a feint as if to
start a run from kick formation, or
else directing a play toward tackle.
The fleet ends, Eckley and Shelton,
would shoot out and away, and when
Barrett tossed they grabbed it about
25 yards down and on the dead run.
Collins, Shiverick and Schlachter also
lave been trained with the pass, so
that an opposing team will have diffi-
culty in determining just who is go-
ing to carry the ball.
Equally important to Cornell's suc-
cess is the marked improvement
shown this year against opposing
teams' passes. The Cornell method is
to drive the ends in as fast as possible
in order to worry the passer; but
even if he does get away a good toss,
a very alert secondary defense is usu-
ally right on top of the ball. Virginia
worked a couple of tosses over the
scrimmage line for seven or eight-yard
gains, but they did not succeed in get-
ting away with a single pass for any
distance. Shiverick, Barrett and Muel-
ler are keen on intercepting, and

ALL-FRESH HAVE ONLY
SHR SINLPRACTICE
Raynsford ties Tream Cornell's Plrays,
Secured at Cambridge, to Use
Against Varsity
Assistant Coach Raynsford, of the
All-Fresh, gave the squad a light
workout yesterday afternoon in the
absence of Douglass, the regular men-
tor. Signal practice was the only
means that the men had to keep them
busy, the squad leaving the gridiron
before darkness set in.
Raynsford gave the men some of the
Cornell plays which "Germany"
Schultz dug up on his scouting expe-
dition to Cambridge, where he watch-
ed Captain Barrett's team vanquish
the Crimson. These plays may be
turned loose upon the Varsity this
afternoon in an effort to acquaint the
Yostmen with the style of play which
their week-end opponents are expected
to exhibit.
The freshmen came through the
Heidelburg tilt in good shape, consid-
ering the roughness of the play. Eg-
gert, the halfback, whose ankle was
twisted in the melee, has not yet
made his presence, but will be out
before the end of the week. The other
cripples are fast getting 'back into
condition, and the team will be out in
full force long before the Detroit,
game. Williams, who bore the brunt
of most of the Ohigans attack, is still
bobbling around but his injuries will
not keep him out ofplay. The only
other member of the injured list,
Bevins, watched this afternoon's prac-
tice, but will don his moleskins again
for duty against the Varsity this af- I
ternoon.

FOLLOWING THE YOST-MEN

y

Anderson, the Cornell guard, comes
to Ann Arbor with a smile a mile'
broad. Last year he wasn't playing
well at all until he struck Michigan,
but he made up for lost time and has
been traveling at the same clip ever
since. It will become the painful
duty of "Wee Willie" Cochran to re-
move the aforementioned smile, and
"Willie" is the boy for the job.
There are only three men on the
entire Cornell squad .of 28 players
who weigh over 200 pounds. These
men just slip over the double century
figures, too. The heaviest of the lot
weighs 205 and the other two are tied
for second honors with 203. - The
Michigan will outweigh the Itha-
can forwtrd>, but the visitors will
have a slight edge in weight in the
backfield.
Cool, the Cornell center, weighs
only 160 nounds, but many of those

unfortunate gentlemen who have been
compelled to play against him assert
that this is just 160 pounds too much.
Tickets for the Cornell game are
going fast, and the authorities believe
that the crowd will outnumber that
which saw the M. A. C. game; 20,200,
were on hand to see the Aggies.
"Pat" Smith is hereby stricken
from our calling list. After our beau-
tiful tribute to his unchallenged looks
in this column yesterday, he actually
refused to speak to us on the campus,
and even after we'd cheerfully hailed
him as "beauty."
Michigan students whose cheering
section ticket places them in the block
"M," are urgently requested to report
at the athletic association to procure
their flag. Nothing looks quite so
poorly as a ragged "M," and nothing
quite so pleasing and inspiring as a
neat, trim letter.
