Who Will Prove Regular Pilot Still
Problem; Six Quarterbacks
Exhibiting a brand of football vastly,
superior to that displayed last
Wednesday, Coach Yost's warriors
soundly trounced Mount Union yes-
terday afternoon. The final figures
were 36 to 0.
The mere score is really an insig-
nificant and minor detail in many re-
spects, for it wasn't simply an accu-
mulation of points that pleased the'
coach and Michigan followers, as
much as it was the gratifying im-
provement in every department. The
line mnwas opening much bigger holes
than it provided for the boys carry-
ing the ball last Wednesday, and all
of the backs plunged.through repeat-
edly for big gains. "Rummy" Roehm
handled the team in a decidedly cred-
itable manner during the time that
he was in, while Sharpe performed
well during the few minutes allotted
to him during the last half.
"Jack" Benton kept himself in the
limelight continually, and Maulbetsch
acted just'like the "Maullie" of yore,
which is - equivalent to writing vol-
umes. "Pat" Smith proved more or
less conclusively that he isn't a much
over-rated athlete, and "Pat's" rating
is rather high just at present.
Benton drew the center of the stage,
right off the reel. "Jack" kicked off,
and then hurried down the field and
nailed the man with the ball. When
"Rummy" Roehm picked a forward
pass out of the atmosphere a moment
later it was Michigan's ball. Benton
dropped back and neatly booted a goal
from placement from the 38-yard line,
and Michigan chalked up three points.
Michigan scored a touchdown short-
ly afterwards, when Bentor, and Maul-
Detsch collaborated and produced a
couple of beautiful dodging runs.
"Jack" intercepted a pass and rax
15 yards to the 37-yard line. "Maul-
lie" dodged, squirmed, twisted and
fought his way down to the one-yard
line in one of the prettiest runs of the
day. The team lined up, the "Dutch-
man" caught his breath, and then
ploughed over. Benton goaled.
Realizing that they were far out-
weighed, Mount Union resorted to the
aerial attack early in the game, and
it literally rained forward passes
when they had the ball. At one time
during the struggle they completed
three in a row, but a five-yard pen-
alty placed them one yard behind the
point from which they started.
SPRINGFIELD HOLDS MONSTER
MASS MEETING TO ROUSE
Complete reports from all commit-
tees engaged in the Michigan Union's
nation-wide campaign for $1,000,000
will be received on Friday, when the
30-day canvass will be half over, and
those in charge of the work are con-
fident that by that time close to $500,-
000 will have been subscribed. An-
other report will be asked for on Oc-
tober 20, and daily reports will be
sent in during the closing week of the
campaign, when, the final effort will
be made to raise the huge sum.
While many committees have not
been heard from since the last figures
were given out, the most recent avail-'
able totals place the Union contribu-
tions at°$250,000, exclusive of student
subscriptions. Counting the money
received from students, the grand to-'
tal amounts to $350,000.
Sprg'field held a monster mass'
meeting last night, with representa-
tive alumni from central Illinois pres-
ent to keep the enthusiasm of all for-
mer Michigan men in that section of
the state stirred up, and with a large'
committee hard at work, the district
is sure to be heard from before the;
end of the month.
The local committees all over the
country are racking their brains to
devise new means to keep the Union
workers going at top speed, for, with
but four weeks in which to raise the
immense sum, those in charge of the'
campaign realize that it will take the1
united efforts of every one of the
3,000 men engaged in the work to
make the clubhouse a reality.
The Detroit committee has already
raised $102,000 of its $250,000 allot-
ment, and the workers in the state
metropolis are confident that they will
be able to turn in the remainder of'
the quarter of a million dollars by
October 30. The Detroit committee
has organized the work by classes,
with 16 committees appointed to work
among the alumni classes graduating
from 1890 to 1915.

FOSTER WINS HIS OWN GAME
BRINGING IN DECISIVE
The star individual performer for
the visitors was Quarterback Geltz,
who was everywhere at once. The
Mount Union offensive was built
around this player, and justifiably so.
Gletz proved an adept at receiving
passes and no less proficient in throw-
ing the same.
Perhaps as spectacular bit of play
as was staged during the afternoon
was provided by Maulbetsch. Along
in the second half "Maullie" ran 61
yards for a r'ouchdown, and it seemed
as though about every man on the
Mount Union team had to be dodged
or bowled over by the German bullet
before he attained the final stripe.
Just to show that it wasn't an acci-
dent, he duplicated later in the game,
but was called back, since one 'of his
mates transgressed the rules and

"Largest as well as the oldest stu-

This, according to the committee un-

'16L, will be the motto given to the 125
men who will gather at a banquet at
Newberry hall at 5:30 o'clock Tues-
day evening, at which time this year's
"Y" membership campaign for 2,000
members will be started.
All committees have been picked
and the necessary plans gone over
and determined upon. N. E. Pinney,
'16, has been secured to act as execu-
tive chairman of the campaign, while
William Klinestacker, '16D, will serve
as executive secretary. A ' special
committee under the direction of Wil-

cial canvass of the fraternity men.
Last year's plan of campaign will

Philadelphia, Pa., Oct. 9.-Carri-
gan's Red Sox made the count one and
one by nosing out a ninth-inning vic-t
tory over the Phillies in the second
game of the series for the baseballe
championship of the world. Foster
twirled the entire route for the bean-
eaters, letting the Quakers down witht
only three hits, and capped the day'st
work by hitting the single which re-t
sulted in scoring the winning run.
Hooper started things for his teamf
by drawing a walk in the. opening in-
ning. Speaker singled, sending Hoop-
er to third. Burns pegged to second,
where Niehoff caught Speaker in a
comatose condition and put the ball
on him. In the meantime Hooper had
started toward home, and would have
been an easy out, but Burns muffed
Niehoff's peg, allowing Hooper to
Maver, for the Phillies, had the Red
Sox swinging on his stuff in the next
two. stanzas, striking out five of Car-
rigan's men. Later Boston began to
hit Mayer more freely, but the Phil-
lies' pitcher ,kept out of the danger
zone right up to the ninth inning.
In the fifth Phifadelphia evened the
count by pushing Cravath across the
plate for their only score. "Gavvy"'
led off with a two-bagger, and checked
in when Luderus repeated wjth a dou-
ble past Speaker in center field.
Whitted, Niehoff and Burns went out
in rapid succession, leaving Luderus
to his fate on third.

of His Country
Washington, Oct. 9.-The United*
States and the Latin-American repub-
lics today officially sanctioned the
recognition of Carranza as provision-
al president of Mexico. A meetirgg
was held here today, but the general
opinion previous to the announcement
was that the recognition of Carranza
would not come until a later time.
.The reason assigned for the de-
cision made by the representatives
was that Carranza is the only man
in Mexico who possesses the essen-
tials necessary for recognition as
president. It was thought that he is
the only man in the country who
could restore and maintain peace.
Although the matter has not been
thoroughly discussed, Secretary of:
State Lansing said that the recogni-
tion of Carranza probably would mean
the institution of all possible discour-
agement to his opponents. The lay-.
ing of an embargo on arms to Mexico
is considered the most important aid,
that can be given to the Carranza
It is more than likely that Amer-
ican bankers will be called upon in,.
the near future to supply funds for
putting Mexico on a firm financial
basis. This duty naturally falls to
the lot of the United States, as she
is one of the countries vitally inter-
ested in the settlement of affairs in
Mexico, and also because of the fact
that none of the European powers are
in any condition to lend money for
