"Maulie" Out Again in Uniform
Possibility That Weske May Start With
Yostmen A gainst Crippled
Michigan's 1915 Vasity football
team will appear on Ferry Field in
their official capacity for the las time
this season today.
Coach Yost intends to send the
scrubs and the All-Fresh against the
Varsity substitutes, with the two first
mentioned teams using Pennsylvania
The team escaped rather lightly
yesterday, staging a signal drill be-
hind closed gates. The squad spent
the bigger share of the aftenoon per-
fecting the plays they are going to use
against Pennsylvania. Michigan ought
to get away with something against
Pennsylvania, too. The Quakers won't
have one of those bothersome and an-
noying lines that persists in rushing
right through and staging a rough
house before the play even gets under
way, as Cornell did last Saturday.
Pennsylvania has been having a lot
of little difficulties all her own thi
season, and the tricks that Yost has
handed the Varsity will probably work
much better than they have thus far.
Coach Yost had Weske in at guard last
night, with Sharpe running at half.
Weske may start the game next Satur-
day, although there is no immediate
danger that Sharpe will receive the call
over Maulbetsch.
"Maullie" was out last night in a
suit, although he did not run through
signals with the team. His hand re-
ceived another bump last Saturday,
and he spent the afternoon drop kick-
ing. "Johnny" will be all right Satur-
day, and if this atmosphere in the
eastern section of America affects him
as it did last year when Michigan trot-
ted into the Harvard stadium, the
Pennsylvania football team is hereby
extended the deepest sympathy by the
Michigan student body.
Then too, there's "Pat" Smith, and
Pennsylvania never seen him in action.
"Buzz" Catlett is well known by the
Penn team, for he dodged and twisted
through them so fast last season that
some of the-tacklers became dizzy and
had to be removed from the game.
The scrubs and All-Fresh have both
been coached to use what Pennsylva-
nia plays the Michigan coaches know
about, and they will use these exclu-
sively against the second Varsity to-
day. The scrimmage will not be a
fierce affair, as the coach does not
want any of his men injured before
the farewell clash of the year.
Why advertise this final appearance
of the team on Ferry field? They
won't let us in.
That old Michigan fighting spirit has
its last chance to assert itself when
the team leaves for the east tonight.

When it comes right down to real
excitement, the fact that there will be
no championship at stake Saturday,
not even the cellaraone, will not pre-
vent it being a game of football well
worth seeing.
There are lots of men who would
like to go to Penn, so they say. The
man who really wants to is that one
who has been setting pins in a bowl-
ing alley at five cents a game for the
past month. At that, he can just about
make the trip, if he is careful how he
spends his money.

Tribune, comments, "Well! Well!"'

vate management, and that it was not
a money-making proposition, being
simply a fete given for the enjoyment
of the thousands of visitors to Pasa-
dena each winter, it was the opinion
of the Senate that the game could
hardly be construed as other than a
contest for exhibition purposes.
Dozens of letters and telegrams have
been received at the athletic offices
within the past few weeks asking that
favorable action be taken on the mat-
ter. It was stated that nothing could
be of greater aid in advancing the
cause of the new Michigan Union
throughout the west than to show the
alumni in that portion of the country
a Michigan football team in action.
There are perhaps objections other
than those mentioned in the action of
the Senate Council which influenced
them in making their decision. While
American football is new in the west,
havng been adopted by the University
of California only this year, neverthe-
less, judging from the showing made
by the strong Oregon team, an unwel-
come surprise might be in store for
this year's Varsity, as their work to
date can hardly be considered that of
a representative Michigan team.
There would also have been difficulty
in keeping the team in proper condi-
tion until New Year's to put up a for-
midable football appearance. Coach
Yost favored the proposition as an ex-
cellent trip for the Varsity, but had
little to say regarding the advisability
of such a game from the standpoint
of intercollegiate competition.
Interest in the game would have
been increased owing to the fact that
an old Michigan man is coach of the
new style American football in the
University of California, in the person
of Dr. Andrew W. Smith, the "Andy"
Smith who performed at guard in 1909
under Yost, and in the following year
played a stellar game at center.
Campaigning for new rifle club
members has been progressing steadily
during the past week, though the 500
mark is yet far from being in sight.
Any student interested should com-
municate with Intramural Director F.
A. Rowe immediately, and if unable
to see him personally, should telephone
his name and address, and notices will
be mailed. Practice has been post-
poned on the indoor range until the
end of the week, for the metal back-
stops now used are not sufficien to
stop the bullets. Members may use
the outdoor range, however, on- any
day except Sunday, this day being re-
served for the exclusive use of the lo-
cal militia company.-

Fresh Dents Beat Second--Year Doc-
tors by 7-to-6 Score; Lit Teams
Mix it Up Tomorrow
One game was played yesterday in
the inter-class football race for cam-
pus tbampionship, the fresh dents
beating the soph medics by the narrow
margin of one point, with a final score
of 7-6. Other teams were out on south
Ferryafield yesterday practicing for
the games to be played this week.
Both teams in the game between the
dents and medics appeared to be off
form, and as a result the game was
slow and rather lacking in pep. Al-
though the lead in the official score
was only one point in faior of the
dents, which ordinarily shows very lit-
tle, still they had the shade over their
opponents throughout the game. Sim-
mons, half on the dents, showed up
to advantage on defense and did all
the kicking for his squad, getting pff
some long punts that caused the ama-
teur physicians no little trouble. Each
team scored on passes, with the dif-
ference that the medics failed to kick
goal. Neither side was able to make
any considerable gain on line plunges,
Forward passing and drop kicking
formed the main part of the practice
of the soph lits yesterday in prepara-
tion for the big game tomorrow with
the senior lits for the championship
of their department. The seniors have
a heavy line and a husky, as well as
fact, backfield, while the second-year
men rely upon their accurate use of
the forward pass and a set of clever
trick plays to baffle their opponents.
This'gamewill be the most important
on the schedule this week, as it will
not only in all probability decide the
numeral winners in this division, but
will also place in the last lap one of
the most likely of the championship
contenders. Taylor, the giant guard,
reported for practice yesterday, and
was given a chance to show up in
punting, which he did by booting the
ball for an average of about forty-five
A schedule was made out by the In-
tramural Office yesterday for games to
be played in the second round. It is
hoped that the schedule will be played
off without any postponements or al-
terations so that the championship can
be decided as soon as possible. The
schedule is given below:
Tomorrow: Senior lits vs. soph lits;
junior lits vs. fresh lits. Friday, No-
vember 12: Fresh engineers vs. junior
engineers. Saturday, November 13:
Senior laws vs. senior lits; junior laws
vs. winner of junior lit-soph lit game.
Monday, November 15: Senior engi-
neers vs. fresh dents; junior engineers
vs. medics.
The remainder of the schedule will
be published as soon as the results of
these games are determined.
Paris, Nov. 9.-"Every branch of the
munitions service has been extended
to a formidable extent," said Minister
of Munitions Thomas, in an interview
granted a Paris newspaper.
"With one or two exceptions the de-
mands of the commander-in-chief for
all kinds of shells now are more than
covered. The estimates of Gen. Joffre
who is especially anxious about shells
for the 155-millimeter guns, have been
exactly met, while his estimates for

the 105 and 120-millimeter guns have
been exceeded. The number of shells
demanded for the 75's varies daily,
but on the whole they are being virtu-
ally covered."
"One would be greatly surprised,"1
M. Thomas said, "if the product today
were compared with that of Septem-
ber, 1914. The same is true in regard
to the output of rifles, machine guns
and explosives.
"But, however intense the recent
efforts," the minister of munitions
added, "they are as nothing to what

of the regular first -team was playing,
with only one of them seeing active
service during any part of the hostili-
ties, Nash alone getting a workout in
the last few moments.
Schultz was the bright star of the;
afternoon's entertainment, making one1
touchdown and taking a big part inI
making the other two. The other six
point scores of the day were made by{
Bixler and Johnson. "Bix" dove
through the line for his total, while
Johnson received a forward pass and
planted the ball on the ground after
a short sprint. Reekie was the only
member of the freshman outfit who?
could do anything against the reserves,
the Detroit boy being a tower of
strength both in carrying the bell and1

Williams was out in a suit and hob-
bled around through the signal prac-;
tice, but it is still rather doubtful
whether he will be able to play againstE
Detroit. The other cripples are round-
ing into form again. Hanish has near-
ly recovered from his "charley horse.'"

Six men stand out as the most prob-
able candidates for the team to rep-
resent Michigan at the eastern classic
at Franklin, Mass. These men are the
six who have been finishing at the
front, in the contests so far held this
season, and their number agrees with
the number of men who will be taken
Captain Carroll is the most prominent
of these men to figure in the dope, and
pressing on his heels are his five team-
mates, Kuivinen, Vance, Matteson,
Walters and Trelfa. Kuivinen is a
runner who took care of some of the
distance runs in a few of the Varsity
meets last spring, and his best line of
work is in the open field and road.
All the collegiate entries have not
been received so far, but almost every
institution in the east and in the mid-
dle-west is to have a team of runners
at the Eastern Intercollegiate meet.
The dope on the western teams is more
or less questionable. Several of them
are considered as dark horses, but are
not granted any higher ranking than
