Football Men to Meet Tice a Week
Until Spring to Keep in
Fit Condition

All-American Team of 1915
Strong in Any Style Game



Coach Fielding H. Yost yesterday
decided upon the squad of men which
is to receive the benefit of the winter
workouts in Waterman gymnasium.
The indoor training starts next week,
and efforts are now being made by
the athletic authorities to distribute
the men in such groups as can best
meet together. Notices were sent out
yesterday to each man on the list, re-
questing that he send his schedule of
classes back to the Athletic associa-
tion with the least possible delay, in
order that the footballers may be put
in their respective squads. The squads
will meet twice a week until spring
practice, and will receive instruction
in various lines of gymnasium work,
which is calculated to keep the ath-
letes physically fit throughout the off
Michigan will probably have an ex-
tremely hard schedule ahead of her
next fall, and it is especially desirable
that every man who has any football
ability whatever keeps himself physi-,
cally fit, and at the same time does
his school work so that he will be
scholastically eligible to compete for
Michigan next fall.
The men who were picked for the
gymnasium squad have been chosen
both from the best of the inter-class
gridders and those mn of this year's
All-Freshman team who show the most
promise -of developing into Varsity
material. The "M" men on this year's
squad will assist in the instruction of
the younger men.
Coach Yost yesterday predicted that
if the men named would do their ut-
most to keep in the best possible con-
dition physically, and at the same
time hold their scholastic records
above the dead-line, that Michigan
would turn out an eleven next fall
which would rival those of the palm-
iest days of her athletic career.
The men chosen for the indoor gym-
nasium work are as follows: J. Maul-
betsch, M. F. Dunne, J. L. Whalen, H.
M. Zeiger, C. C. Smith, P. T. Raymond,
Harry Calvin, Hoyne Howe, J. H.
Sharpe, W. Neimann, F. L. Rehor, Al-
Ian Boyd, R. F. Weske, H. W. Ewert,
W. L. Peach, Joe Robins, E. E. Wei-
man, O. G. Williams, B. L. Snyder, C.
M. Sparks, G. H. Bevens, J. H. Hanish,
F. B. Nash, C. A. Towsley, C. P. Beath,
F. A. Willard, W. R. Johnson, E. A.
Biber, A. W. MacLachlan, N. S. Thomp-
son, A. E. Loucks, R. Glenn Dunn,

Schultz,' E. H. Meibeyer, John W. Ed-
wards, 0. J. Watts, Frank R. Goetz,

that he is under contract to coach

release Sharpe from his contract.

Picking a high-class All-American
team does not seem a difficult task
this year. For each position one man
stands out conspicuously-a man who
has done brilliant work all season.
In my selection I am choosing only
men who play where the three-year
rule is followed. It does not seem to
me to be fair to include men who
have had a chance to play in their
freshman year.
My team would be made up as fol-
Center-Cool, of Cornell. He is a
wonderfully heady player, exception-
ally fine on defensive work and in
diagnosing plays. He has just finish-
ed his third year, stands about six
feet and weighs 165.
Left Guard-Schlachter, of Syra-
cuse. Height, six feet; weight, about
240. Very fast and aggresive on of-
fenc and defense. Many of Wilkin-
son's gains this seasan were due to
Schlachter's opening up the opposing
Right Guard-Spears, of Dartmouth.
Height, five feet eleven; weight 220.
Good all-round player, fast on offense
and defense, tackling all over the
Left Tackle-Buck, of Wisconsin.
Height, "six feet two; weight about
200. He was captain this season, t
playing his third year. He is a re- Y
markable player, perhaps one of the
best tacklers ever developed in the H
Right Tackle-Gilman, of Harvard. i
Height, six feet one inch;tweight, I
130. He played on the 1913 team, but i-
was ineligible last year on accouut
of scholarship, so this was his see- It
ond season on the team. He kept up r
Appointed to Committee for Pirifica-
tion of English Language
Professor T. C. Trueblood, of the
oratorical department, returned from
Chicago recently, where he was sig- t
nally honored by being appointed a ir
member of a committee for the puri- t
fication of spoken English, at the con- ic
vention of the National Council of a
Teachers of English., d
Professor Trueblood's part in the ti
program consisted of the reading of t
a paper devoted to "A Discussion of -
Expression for Teachers of English."
He recommended a liberal education
for anyone intending to teach this
course, which would include sciences-,
languages and philosophy, in addi-
tion to the fundamental courses such
as rhetoric, English, and the history
of English literature.
The committe to -which Professor
Trueblood was appointed a member,
has for its object the standardization
of the pronunciation of English. They
hope to accomplish this in part
thrbugh the phonograph, for which
records giving examples of the best
spoken English will be made and dis-
tributed throughout the country.

sideration on the subject of national
preparedness for war.
