Mauilbef'sch, Renton and Smith Make
Up Rest of Backfield Quartet in
Mid-week Tilt
"Roehm and Catlett will work at
quarter for Michigan when the squad
meets Marietta tomorrow afternoon,"
announced Coach Yost last night.
"Rummy" Roehm's performance at
this post in the Mount Union game
pleased the Wolverine coach, and the
former halfback will direct the team
in tomorrow's contest during the first
portion of the game. "Buzz" Catlett
will also be given a whirl at managing
the Varsity from the quarterback po-
sition, despite the fact that Yost sent
him in at half last Saturday.
Quarterback is a comparatively new
position for both of these men, but
the coach feels confident that they will
fall into the swing of the thing quick-
ly. Catlett has played quarter before,
directing the freshman team during
his first year at Michigan. Roehm
used excellent judgment last Satur-
day against Mount Union, and he kept
the team going at top speed, which
pleased Coach Yost as much as any
single feature of his performance.
Both Roehm and Catlett can carry the
ball exceptionally well, having a big
advantage over the other men who are
working at the pilot position in this
particular respect.
With "Pat" Smith and Maulbetsch
ready to assume the bulk of the line
plunging, Catlett's end runs would
form a pretty combination for a pack-
field. "Jack" Benton is a valuable
man at either of these two callings,
possessing the speed for skirting the
ends and the weight for tearing
through the line. Roehm proved one
of the most dependable ground gain-
ers that Yost had in the backfield
while he was playing last season, and
with either of these men running the
team, Michigan will have four backs
of exceptional ability.
Coach Douglass led his charges onto
the big field yesterday afternoon for
a scrimmage with the second team.
The first year squad started out in
great shape, playing their bigger op-
ponents to a standstill for a consid-
erable length of time, although the
older men eventually sored a couple
of touchdowns. Both of them were
registered by "Dutch" Eberwein, who

Examination of freshmen, prepara-
tory to the arrangement of physical
training courses for the first year men,
has been going forward rapidly for
the past few days, and already a large
per cent of the entering class has been
passed upon by Director May, of Wa-
terman gymnasium.
It is the wish of Dr. May that all
those who have not as yet presented
themselves for examination do so as
soon as possible in order that a sched-
ule of classes may be completed in
the near future. He also wishes to
urge all men interested in cross coun-
try running and soccer to report to
him soon. Credit will be given for
these branches of work this year.
Plan for Meeting With M. A. C. In
Addition to Usual Local
Squad Races
Cross country enthusiasts are re-
quested to attend the annual meeting
of the Cross Country club at 7:15
o'clock tonight at Waterman gymna-
sium. Talks will be given by Director
Bartelme, of the Athletic Association,
Coach Farrell, of the track team, In-
tramural Director Rowe and Captain
Carroll, of the cross country squad.
The cross country squad has been
working out daily over the two boule-
vards, and present indications point
toward a well trained team to care
for the coming meets.
The novice race has been set for
October 16, and any man who ha
never entered in a cross country race
under the auspices of the university,
is eligible to run. The distance will
be about three miles and the winner
will receive the C. C. C.
It is probable that an open scratch
race will be held on October 23 over
a longer distance.
The other races of the year will fol-
low these and will include the annual
handicap race over a distance of six
miles,the Michigan State champion-
ship race at Detroit on Thanksgiving
day and possibly a race at Lansing
with M. A. C. The M. A. C. race has
not been definitely settled, but it is
expected that the final arrangements
will be made within a few days.
All freshmen desiring to try out for
the cross country squad may do so
by being examined, and by reporting
at the gym at 4:15 o'clock any after-
noon. They will receive gym credit
during the cross country season.'
After meals drop in and get a
nickel or a dime's worth of candy.

Rifle Club to Make Plans Tomorrow
Plans for the coming year will be
made by the University Rifle club at
its rrt meeting at 7:15 o'clock to-
morro ,v night in room 348, engineer-
ing building. A report of the club's
membership campaign and detailed
reports from the various officers will
be presented. At the beginning of
last year the club was rated in class
"C," but because of the good showing
it made toward the end of the season
it was raised to class "B."
"Little ideas are usually expressed
in big words." Taxi-Stark-2255:

ering will be open to all men inter-
ested in shooting, whether members
of the club or not.
President Wood of the rifle club
said yesterday: "If the club tides over
the present year, it will be an estab-
lished organization and its future will
be assured. Increased membership is
needed to make the club a success."
A membership campaign has been
organized, and a report by the mem-
bership committee will be submitted
at tomorrow's meeting. This report,
with the plans for the present year,
will constitute the greater part of the
Michigan's rifle team started at the
bottom of the ladder last year, shoot-
ing in the class "C" competition in
the National Rifne association. The
showing of the team in this division
gained for it a place with the class
"B" teams, and the competition will
be of a higher order this year.
Ask Intercollege Tryouts to Report
Intercollege Committee tryouts are
requested to report to "bash" Thomas
at the Intramural office at the earliest
possible opportunity. Thomas may be
found at the office from 1:00 to 3:00

All men who are interested in track
work are requested to report to Cap-
tain Harold Smith at Ferry Field this
afternoon, weather permitting. Can-
didates will be given a few pointers

outdoor workout before the weather
gets too cold. The men will use the
intramural club-house during the fall

Foster Will Probably Twirl For Red

Mayer For Phils
Boston, Mass., Oct. 11.-(Special.)-
When Duffy Lewis sent a Texas
leaguer over Bancroft's head in the
ninth inning of today's game in the
world series, he not only won the
game for Boston, but according to all
dope on the championship, he also
won the title for the American League
For that single of Lewis' scored
Harry Hooper with the second run
for Boston, and as the Phillies could
only gain one tally for Alexander, the
man who was considered as Moran's
sole hope in the big games, had to
accept defeat. The opposing pitcher
was Leonard, and he allowed but
three hits during the whole nine in-
nings. The score of- the third game
was 2 to 1.
Duffy Lewis was just about the
whole works for Boston. He grabbed
three hits in four times at bat, and
these three were just one-half of all
that Grover Cleveland allowed. Only
one of the hits figured in the scoring,
but Duffy kept the whole Philadel-
phia team in hot water during most
of the game.
The bats of Moran's men seemed
to have holes in them when it came to
hitting Leonard. They were as help-
less as children with the curves of
"Dutch" breaking right, and they
broke right in all but the third in-
ning. In this inning the side would
have been retired without a run in
all probability had not Hoblitzel made
an error.
The game was not a runaway by
any means, but was a battle all
through, as the score indicates. Alex-
ander the Great lived up to his name
and with his pitching would have won
nine games out of ten. In five of the
nine innings Carrigan's men went out
in order. Some of the experts in the
stands .said that it was by far the
toughest game that Alec had ever lost.
Everything is as clean as a whistle
and I am at your service until late at
night. Bloomfield's, 709 North Uni-
versity. oct12

Phil Raymond was out yesterday in
a suit for the first time in two weeks.
Peach, playing at right end for the
freshmen, seems to be "all that the
name implies."
Inasmuch as Michigan plays Penn-
sylvania in Philadelphia this year, it
is earnestly hoped that the Boston
Americans will fully accustom the
good people of Quakertown to seeing
their products defeated.
Michigan's half-backs may have
their jobs cinched and all that sort of
stuff, but at the same time, the per-
formance- of "Dutch" Eberwein yes-
terday afternoon isn't going to cause
many of them to sleep much more
After watching Eberwein run 40
yards for a touchdown with practi-

cally no interference to assist him,
Coach Yost is led to wonder just how
far this boy could travel if he should
happen to have 10 good Varsity foot-
ballers out there1blocking for him.
Wisconsin continues to be excited
over the fact that their football team
ran up almost 50 points more against
Lawrence than did Michigan, so ex-
cited in fact, that there are probably
some at the conference college who
actually believe they could whip Mich-
Hannish, the fullback on the fresh-
man squad, showed to splendid ad-
vantage with his punting yesterday
afternoon in the scrimmage against
the second team. The lad seems to
show real promise and may develop
into a Varsity toe artist by the time
he's eligible for the Yost machine.
