Distinction to Be Made Between Men
Who Have Kept on First Squad
and Scrubs
Cross Country Team to Get Insignia
for its Good Showing in
the East
Men who remain on the Varsity
squad but who do not receive the cov-
eted "M," will in the future be given
some special insignia, if plans of the
Board of Directors of the Athletic as-
sociation do not go amiss.
In the past, men who have kept on
the first squad throughout the whole
season, but who were not fortunate
enough to get into one of the big
games, have been content to receive
the same form of insignia as that giv-
en to the Reserves, that is the "R." It
has long been felt that a' distinctive
design should be adopted to disting-
uish the Varsity squad men from the
/ zrubs, anid in case the Board in Con-
trol of Atlletics acts favorably on the
recomen Lation passed by the lower
board, this diffculty wil not be felt
in the ftire.
It is sugestld that all members of
tlw Variti squads in the three ma-
jor sports football, baseball and.
track, who6 do not receive their "M's"
and who ure recommended by the
heard whih at present awards the
Varsity letters, shall reeiv a secon-
dary insigmia in the fort of a stand-
ardized tyN of "AMA."
this "AIA" is to be formed of in-
tci woven letters, and there will be
no chance of mistaking it for the pres-
ent "M" a there was with the use of
the old "AMA" which was given out
for track. The insignia will be on the
same scale as the Varsity letter; the
football de ign will be six inches high,
the baseball five inches, and the track
insignia, icur inches high.
It was also brought utn at the board
meeting t ialt Michigau's cross-country
team could not be distinguished at
the Easterr Inter-Collegates from the
"CC(" whiK'h is the present insignia
for that sport. A committee was ap-
poiot'd to investigate thi matter, and
it is possible that either an "AMA" or
"CMC" will be adoped for cross-coun-

Four Teams Strong in
1915 Football Season
By Fielding H. Yost



(Copyright 1915 by the Central Press
The 1915 football season developed
some great stars land several bril-
liant teams, but at the same timr it
got off with a bad start, and- early re-
sults disappointed many lovers of the
No doubt the general public con-
cluded, after some of the most con-
spicuous university teams had been
beaten by small colleges early in the
fall, that the season would turn out
more or less of a fizzle. Schedules
were so arranged that there was no
definite elimination of contenders.'
Therefore, the results from week to'
week seemed more or less inconclu-

turn the tables if another game were
played. Harvard had her usual high-
class, finished team, winning her two
big games from Princeton and Yale.
In the middle west three teams
were undefeated: Illinois, Minnesota
and Nebraska. Illinois had two tie
games, playing Minnesota 6 to 6 and
O. S. U. 3 to 3. Nebraska won the
championship of the Missouri valley
and did not lose a game.
Minnesota's showing entitles her to
the leadership of the Western Con-
ference Chicago lost to Minnesota
and Illinois. Wisconsin's luck was
poor. Because of the loss of Full-
back Galvin through ineligibility on
account of professionalism, and of

same class the teams that play men
three years and those that work their
men for tour seasons. The former
would be under a handicap in such
comparison, of course. This is not
taken into account by the general
public, which pays hed only to the
scores, and which knows or cares
little about the handicap referred to.
In the east, three teams were veryt
strong : Cornell, Harvard and Syra-
cuse. The latter had fewer pointsC
scored against it than had any other
team. These points included threeI
by Princeton and seven by Michigan.
Syracuse defeated Colgate 39 to 0,j
and Colgate beat Yale 16 to 0. Cor-
nell won all the games on its schedule
and was the only team to beat Har-
vard in the last three years.
Although Cornell defeated Harvard,j
it is my opinion that the teams werel
about evenly matched. Harvard might
battery men. In a argumentative yet
snappy game, the J-engineers were
defeated by the all-architect team by
the narrow margin of one run. The
count at the end of three innings readl
4-3, in favor of the architects.
It is probable that a schedule will,
be made out in the near future andf
it is possible that it may begin 'nextt
week. If it begins as indications seem
to point, the first games are likely to
be played next Tuesday. All of the
teams should be prepared to play
whenever the schedule is announced.
Managers of class -teams are re-
quested to report to Intramural Coach
Armstrong at Waterman gym as soon
as they get to the gymnasium, in or-
der to arrange for practice' periods
for that night.
Will Reorgranize Football at Yale
New Haven, Conn., Dec. 2.-At a
special meeting of the Yale Athletic
association the following committee
to take charge of the re-organization
of football at Yale was named: Vance
C. McCormick, captain of the 1892
eleven; Samuel B. Thorne, captain of
the 1896 team, and John R. Kilpatrick,
leader of the 1911 squad. After mak-
ing. an investigation of the football
system now in vogue, the committee
will make recommendations to the as-
sociation for ratification.

all other teams played.
Among the teams in the east and
middle west playing under the four-
year rule, fine records were made by
Pitt, W. and J., Colgate, and the
Michigan Aggies.
In my opinion, teams using men
four years should play only with
teams following the same rule. The
additional year makes a great deal
of difference in the possibilities for
a team. The case of Notre Dame
helps make my point.
Until two years ago; Notre Dame
under the fourth-year rule was a dan-
gerous adversary and defeated some
very strong teams, including Yale and
the Army. Last season Notre Dame
adopted the three-year rule, barring
first year men, and since then she
has not been heard from so promi-
nently. It surely makes a difference.
Lieut. C. R. Daly Leaves West Point
Lieut. Charles R. Daly, who for the
last three years has coached the Army,
has terminated his stay at West Point
as athletic coach. Lieutenant Daly
sails from San Francisco the day af-
ter tomorrow to join his regiment at
Schofield, Honolulu.

No Formal Call Has Been

team continue to show up for prac-

days. "Buzz"' Catlett made his debut
into the society of those who have
been out in suits,, and it looks to the
casual observer as if the halfback's
speed had not been harmed by the
strenuous performances of the past
gridiron season. Others who have en-
deavored to shake some of the dust
from their suits so far include such
former stars as Corbin, Max Robinson
and Griest. This last mentioned boy
was not in college last year, but up-
