more during the first quarter, but
Benton missed his second attempt at
goal, and the count stood 12 to 0.
Micligan marched straight down the'
field, using nothing but old-style foot-1
ball, apparently easily brushing aside'
all resistance. -Maulbetsch scored the
second touchdown, although the other
backs performed nobly in advancing
the ball to within scoring distance.
Michigan scored once in the second
quarter, due for the mast part to a
spectacular 25-yard run by "Jack"
Benton which put the ball on the
three-yard line. Benton skirted left
end neatly and should have scored a
touchdown easily but for Calvin', fail-
ure to block the sole remaining tack-
ler between "Jack" and the line. Cal-
vin was running ahead of Benton, but
instead of putting the remaining vis-
itor out of the way, he sprinted furi-.
ously past, leaving Benton to his fate.
Morrie Dunne goaled, placing the
Michigan total at 19.
Lawrence rallied during the re-
mainder of the period and played
their bigger opponents almost even.
Elliot, the left half on the Lawrence'
team, proved to be the individual star
for his playmates, both on defense
and offense. Elliot was practically
the only back who could penetrate
the Michigan line consistently, and
incidentally he was a powerful de-
fensive man, smearing many of Mich-
igan's passes and tackling efficiently.
The Dlrst half ended with Michigan
leading, 19 to 0.
Coach Yost's squad scored shortly
after the second half opened,'Smith
and Hildner gaining repeatedly. Maul-
betsch scored 'the touchdown. Hild-
ner, Roehm and Zeiger carried the
ball effectively during the second half,

portion of the struggle, returning a

Zeiger started at quarter back, with
Calvin going in for a while. Johnson
also had a whirl at directing the vary-
ing fortunes of the Wolverines, but
Zeiger was in the lineup when the
game ended. Coach Yost was not par-
ticularly gratified with the snap that
any of the quarters displayed. Zei-
ger carried the ball exceptionally
well, breaking through for several
long gains.
Commenting upon the difference in
size of the Michigan score and that
of Wisconsin, Coach Yost stated that
Wisconsin played 60 minutes as
against 40 minutes yesterday. Then,
too, Yost, allowed the Lawrence coach
to make as many substitutions and in
whatever manner he chose, which did
not occur in, the Wisconsin-Lawrence
game. Also, the youth performing at
center on the Wisconsin team is a
Lawrence product and thoroughly ac-
quainted with the signals. The ad-
vantage here is obvious. Finally, the
Lawrence team fumbled five punts
which resulted in five Wisconsin
touchdowns, which obliging feat they
failed to duplicate. yesterday.
Considered from all points of view,
the Michigan team put up a fair game
yesterday, for the first contest of the
season. The coach stated that he was
satisfied, and if Yost is pleased, things
must be going smoothly.

By Hal Fitzgerald

"They're letting him go in becauseI
his name's Lawrence,"-whispered oneI
of the co-eds as Roehm made his ap-
Hal Smith emphatically denies that
he's been practicing leading cheers inr
front of a mirror for three months.t
However . -
The newspaper boys are all pulling1
for "Pat" Smith. It's a lot easier to
write "Smith" sixty or seventy times
in a single story than it is this "Maul-
betsch" proposition.
At that, it sounded strange and pe-
culiar to see Hal out there vigorously
conducting a long, loud cheer for;
"Smith." That must take consider-
able courage the first time, at that.
Playing football in the darkness
may have its distinct advantages, but
one of them isn't deciding from the
dizzy heights of the press stand who
scores the touchdowns.
As has been customary in recent
football games staged upon Ferry
Field, the star of the game has been
the left half. The only difference be-
tween this occasion and many others
is that instead of being Maulbetsch
this time, it was the visitors' left half.
After attempting to purchase a few
text books at this time of the year
from any of the State street stores,
one is more or less firmly convinced
that all the pushing and shoving in
Ann Arbor isn't confined exclusively
to Ferry Field.
Coach Yost offers his sincerest apol-
ogy to the freshman in the north stand
who became so bored with the game
that he began to study. The coach

states that hereafter he shall bend
his best efforts to see that there is
sufficient entertainment for all-even
the freshmen.
The atendance was estimated at
about 5,000. Just about the most con-
clusive and final bit of evidence that
one can submit to uphold this conten-
tion, is the statement of a well-known
gentleman connected with another
student publication. He thought there
were 10,000. Therefore we know
there were 5,000.
After "Pat" Smith, almost unaided,
had luggedl the ball the sum total of
about 99 yards, it was handed to
"Johnny" Maulbetsch, who shot over
the line for a touchdown, whereupon
the discerning students arose en
masse and cheered madly for Mr.
Maulbetsch. Never mind, Pat, you
know who the coach was cheering for.
"The Michigan team looked every
bit as good as Wisconsin," stated
Coach Catlin of the Lawrence squad.
"We gave Wisconsin five touchdowns
by dropping punts, and their center
had formerly played on our team and
so knew our signals. I was very
grateful to Coach Yost for his cour-
tesy in letting me re-arrange my men

Captain Crawford Victor Over Large
Field in North Dakota'
Michigan's tennis team for 1915-16
looms up as a strong contender for in-
tersectional honors this season.' Dur-
ing the summer members of last1
year's team have been doing consider-
able work which shows up strongly
and seems to point to a successful
showing in the -coming spring.
Captain Crawford entered the North
Dakota state tournament, and won
handily from a large field of entries.
Throughout the play Crawford showed,
wonderful form, and from all indica-
tions the captain has bettered his
game of last year considerably.
"Jack" Switzer, also a member of
last year's racket-wielding squad,
spent the. summer in Texas, where he
won the south Texas specials from a
field of experts.
Mack did some good work in the
Michigan state championship in De-
troit. His best performance was a
three-set match against former State
Champion Doughty. He has been de-
veloping a new serve, and with this
perfected he is expected to be one of
the strongest points In our new team.
Ira Reindel, captain of the last
Michigan tennis team, played well in
the Michigan state tournament and
won the Detroit city championship.
There are many promising prospects
among last year's freshmen team and
also among some older men who have
never taken part in the game at Mich-
igan. First among this number seems
to be John Codd, of Detroit. He
showed well in both the city and state
dhampionship in Detroit, and if he
can persuade the faculty to let him
r play next semester, he will also be a
1 man to count on. "Howdy" Sher-
wood,. star member of the All-Fresh
- of last year, will make a strong bid
for one of the four positions on the

Ithaca, N. Y., Oct. 6.--The absence
of Jamison and Bailey, regular
tackles, from the line-up today re-
sulted in an even scrap between the
Varsity and second teams. Coach
Sharpe's scrubs had the Varsity on
the run during stages of the scrim-
mage, and gave fully as much as they
took. Wells, who took Jamison's
tackle post, looked fairly good at the
job, and the rooters believe that he
will wear the "C" at the end of the
season. Tellis replaced Bailey. Van-
der, a 155 pounder, worked at right
end. His weight is against him, but
he is fast and plays a strongly offen-
sive game which should win him a
place in the line-up.

Cambridge, Mass., Oct. 6.-B. N.
Wright's injury in today's stiff prac-
tice will keep him out of the game
for some time. Doctor Nichols pro-
4ounced his knee as in bad condition,
and recommended several weeks' rest
after the crutches are abandoned next
week. Wright was a member of last
year's All-Fresh eleven and was con-
ceded a place on the Varsity backfield
this year. The Varsity was scored on
three times by the scrubs. Hart and
Lyman made touchdowns, while Rob-
ertson kicked goal neatly from the
35 yard line. Enright and Mahan
made the only two Varsity scores.
Princeton, N. J., Oct. 6.-The Tiger
Varsity scored only twice on the
freshmen in today's long scrimmage:
The defensive work of the 1919 eleven
was phenomenal, the line twice hold-
ing the Varsity from touchdowns af-
ter the ball had been carried almost
to the goal line. George played the
best offensive game for the yearlings,
breaking away four times for sub-
stantial gains, and gaining consist-
ently on shorter runs. The first Var-
sity score was made by Lamberton,
who carried the ball across the line
on an end run. Vahill made the sec-
ond and last score by receiving a for-
Sward pass behind the goal line.
