Carroll Second to Cross Tape; Don-
nelly and Kuiniven Follow


Although Addington of Aion, broke
all records for the a3y mile cross
country race on Belle Isle yesterday
crossing the tape int19 minutes, 1
second, Michigan for the second time
by better all-around team work, won
first place and the 20-inch silver cup
offered by the Detroit "Y." Michigan
placed three men immediately after
Addington crossed the tape, and since
these same men will be eligible for
work next year, permanent possession
of the cup seems most probable.
After the final count, Michigan was
found to have but nine points against
her, whereas Abion, taking second
place, had 16 points to the bad. Other
entrants placed in the following or-
der: Detroit Y. M. C. A., third; M. A.
C., fourth; Northwestern High School
of Detroit, fifth; Finnish Athletic
club of Detroit, sixth.
,Though out-starred in one instance
by Addington, Michigan succeeded in
placing the next three men in the
following order: Carroll, Donnelly and
Kuiniven. These men were followed
in the individual placing list by Isabel
of Northwestern, Harbin of Albion,
Secord of the "Y," Fox of Michigan,
Mathews of Albion, and Trelfa of
Among the 13 medals awarded yes-
terday, five of them went to Michigan
runners, including Carroll, Donnelly,
Kuniven, Fox, and Trelfa.
Named as Most Valuable All'Round
Player; Wallie Niemann
Second Highest
In addition to being chosen the lead-
er of next year's eleven, "Johnny"
Maulbetsch has been doubly honored
by being named the most valuable
player on the 1915 Varsity. The Hes-
ton-Schulz trophy has just been
awarded to "Maullie" by vote of Head
Coach Yost, first assistant coach
"Germany" Schulz, and trainer Far-
"Wallie" Niemann received the sec-
ond highest number of points in the
election for most valuable man, close-
ly followed by "Pat" Smith. The en-
tire vote resulted as follows: Maul-
betsch, 15; Niemann, 10; Smith, 8;
Cochran, 5; Catlett, 3; Roehm, 3;
Dunne 1. First choice is given five
points, and the vote would show that
Maulbetsch received a unanimous bal-
lot for this position.
The cup, which is annually award-
ed by "Si" Huston, '03D, and Roscoe
B. Huston, '02-'04L, was won last year
by "Tommy" Hughitt, while James
Craig was the recipient of the honor
in 1913. It is named the Heston-
Schulz trophy in honor of the two
Michigan players who made Walter
Camp's All-Time All-American eleven.
The trophy is not intended for the
most brilliant individual players, nor
for the biggest ground gainer, as the
would give no lineman a possibility1
of winning the cup. The purpose is
to 4onor the man who has been of
the most service to the team, not onlyI
on the field of battle, but in faithful-
ness in practice and by example to
the other members of the team. It is:
significant that the award this year1
went to the man who by his last;
year's selection for the All-American
may also be considered the most bril-a
liant performer on this year's Var-

Butler, one of Macklin's men, showed
to go:d advantage.
At the tackle position is made the
only shift of positions required. Gil-
lies of Cornell, and Smith of 11A.
C., both are slated as left tackle. In
order to get them both on, as they
deserve, we have placed the Ithacan
at the right tackle post. Gillis was
the strength of the Red line, and not.-
ing need be said of Gideon's work.
Cobb, of Syracuse, and Blacklock, of
M. A. C., are placed on the second
The Syracuse guards, White and
Schlachter, are unquestionably the
pick of that crop this season. "abe"
White's friends will be greatly dis-
appointed if he fails to catch Walter
Camp's eye, and Schlachter would
surely make an eye-full for the Yale
authority. They are simon-pre
champions. Anderson, of Cornell, is

Picking an All-American eleven
from the teams which opposed Mich-
igan during the past year, becomes
rather intricate when one considers
the strength of the opponents who
bested the Maize and Blue. Cornell
and Syracuse had teams which rank-
ed among the best which have ever
represented these institutions. M. A.
C. had her customary scrappy bunch
and stars were numerous therein.
To sort the wheat from the chaff
is by no means easily accomplished
and the final result may, of course
meet with disagreements. Of the
team selected, Cornell takes six places
on the first squad and two on the
second; Syracuse has three men on
the first team and the same number
on the second; M. A. C. received the
remaining two positions on the first
eleven and in addition captures four
places on the second; Penn is given
room for two men on the second team.
About the quarterback job, there
can be no hesitancy. "Charlie" Bar-
rett, of Cornell, is the best man in
that place in the country, and no one
denies him the honor. One would not
be able to pick an All-American with-
out finding place for the Cornell cap-
tain. We also give him the leader-
ship of the mythical eleven. Meehan,
of Syracuse, playing his first year of
collegiate football, ran Barrett a close
second and will bear watching in the
football world, if anyone does.
Collins, o'f Cornell, is given the call
over Blake Miller, of M. A. C., for the
left halfback job. He showed at Fer-
ry Field that had he no companion
like Barrett to dim his light he would
be right up among them. Miller did
not show as well in the backfield as
he did on the end of the line. But it
takes a Collins to beat him out.
Jerry DePrato is so firmly anchor-
ed to our fullback job that it would
take a Brickley, two Mahans and a
car-load of dynamite to get him out.
As football players go, Jerry is a
mile and a half ahead of the rest. He
beat Yost and his warriors-with just
a little aid from the rest-to a stand-
still. Williams, of Pennsylvania, was
the best man the Quakers showed
against Michigan.. He gets the next
"Red" Wilkinson, of Syracuse, was
the star in that wonderful bunch of
backs that the Orange team brought
to Ann Arbor. He ripped the line
to shreds, went round the ends, and
kicked with equal ability. We place
him in the same class with Barrett
and DePrato. Shiverick did all that
was required of him in the Michigan
game, and his reputation both before
and after entitles him to his place.
Shelton and Eckley, both of Cor-
nell are placed at the ends of the
line. They were the best we saw all
year, although Burns, of Syracuse,
might give Eckley a run for the job
on the right side. Blake Miller would
have made a good end, but he played
in the backfield in the Michigan game..

a wonder too, but is not as good as
the men coached by "Buck" O^Nei!.
Hlenning, of Penn, was a good pl ayer
who did not stand out as he should
have from a mediocre team.
When it comes to the center of the
line, Cool, of Cornell, walks away whii
the prize with ease, just as his cap-
tain did in his position. Few in the
country are better than this man,
say the critics who have seen the eth-
ers. Frimodig, of M. A. C., we pick
as the next man in line.
Of the minor teams which pae
Michigan at the opening of the season,
there were several players who stood
head and shoulders above their mates,
but who were not, as good as the men
on the big teams. Of these we have
chosen for particular mention Ban-
nerman, of Case, a halfback; Sutton.
the captain of the Marietta team, play-
ing an end; Geltz, the scrappy little
quarter from Mt. Union; and Elliott,
the only man on the Lawrence team,
who could gain against Michigan.
Given Fielding Harris Yos to
coach the first team picked and we
will wager five of the silveriest dol-
lars the mint ever put out, against a
typewriter ribbon, that there isn't a1
team in the country that could beat it.3

14ie s AdlopVon of I ihuay Work
Wll hill Chances for Ob-
tabling New Gym .
It is the opinion of Dr. George A.
May, director of the Waterman gym-
uanum, that the introduction of mili-
tar training into the university will
kill all eha ns for obtaining a new
gyninasium for some time to come.
"If the idea of having military work
in this anversity goes through," said
Dr. '?ay, "where are they going to
hold the drills? It will mean that
ihere will have to be an armory built
to accommunodate the men. Space must
bo foundul iewhere to mount gun
racks, ; ..d t.re must be some place
where the men can drill indoors on bad
days. Of (-ourse every one expects
hat the g1nasium will be turned into
a fu'ly equipped armory but that is
an inrooibility In the first place the
g; mnasiuin classes are to go on as be-
fcre and if they try to hold their drills'
in there something will conflict. Then
if they put gun racks in the gym-
nasium the wall apparatus would be
covered up andl that would never do.
So the logical outcome would be that
the university vould want an armory
built, and if they got that do you think
the state would vote very soon to build
a modern gymnasium? Decidedely NO.
"Of course I am concerned about
this only from my point of view, that

a set of plans for a new gymnasium
and I hate to see our chances of get-
t ,g it fall through. Also I don't like
to think of losing such a fine building

a'e rooms for boxing, wrestling, and

laws and senior lits will decide which
team receives the second aet of num-
erals given out by the Athletic asso-
ciation. These teams have met be-

one of the toughest battles of the
entire season.
The other game determines the dis-
position of the fourth set of numerals.
The soph lits are the first team in the
second division and this is their only
chance to win their class numerals
this year, and as a consequence a
hard fought contest is slated to re-
sult. The senior engineers have to
win in order to get their insignia and
they can be expected to do their share
toward making the game interesting
and close.

The following appeared in the New
York World and is an interesting com-
ment upon the steadfast refusal of
Yale and Harvard to number their
"It was feared for some time that
Harvard and Yale would number their
players when they met on the gridiron
this year, but this catastrophe appears
to have been averted. The harm that
any such innovation would cause
would be incalculable.
"It would enable the vulgar masses
to tell just which scion of an ancient
family had fumbled the ball, and thus
bring home the disgrace more nearly
to his relatives and friends. It would
reveal the name of the warrior making
a tackle or a touchdown and so lay
too great emphasis on individual play.
As it is now, any man on the team has
an equal chance for the credit.
"It would give undue assistance to
the officials by clearly identifying any
gentleman who was holding or at-
tempting to kick or bite another gen-
tleman of the opposing side. Lastly,
it would commercialize the game. Here
is the great danger. So far the sport
has been kept free from any base taint
of coin.
"The contest has not been freely ad-
vertised for over two months, and the
management does not expect to take
in over a beggarly $100,000 at the gate.
The professional coaching system at
Cambridge cannot have cost over $40,-

are under that. The Blue hasn't been

the comfort of the graduates, the un-

dergraduates and the general public,
let us have no commercialism. Perish
the thought!"
Baseball players are wont to attri-
bute nearly all games to the result of
a single play. Every .contest almost
is the result of the "break" in the
game. Of late this has been attributed
to football.
Coach Yost of the Michigan team
can pick out just about one play in
every game this season that Michi-
gan has lost, and lay the entire blame
for the defeat upon that one particu-
lar happening. In the M. A. C. game
the "break" occurred early in the
struggle. A punt was recovered by
the visitors which resulted in a score
and this apparently demoralized the
Wolverines. In another game, a
Michigan man fumbled a forward pass
and a moment later after the Maize
and Blue had intercepted a visitor's
throw, the backfield fumbled again.
Yost holds these plays responsible for
the defeat on this occasion.
Picking any single event as the
cause of defeat at the hands of Cor-
nell would be a rare bit of humor, but
in any game which is comparatively
close, Yost believes that the outcome
often results directly from a single
