Michigan Team
est of the

iverne Line-up Not Yet Decided
Upon by Goach Yost, Last
With seven of last year's letter men
cast into the fracas, the Case foot-
it eleven is expected in the city to-
rrow morning. Despite war time
iditions, the engineering school
dders are said to be much stronger
in in previous years, yet Michigan
horities are confident that the
ize and Blue will come out on top
in time Immemorial.
ks customary the Case team is the
t for the Wolverines to combat,
s season. For a number of years
e has furnished the initial oppo-
on for Michigan, yet no,t once has
been able to get the long end of
Signal JPractlce
oach Yost had his gridders on the
d yesterday drilling theni in signal

ti and promises a gret deal of
npetition for first string places.
Vith military restrictiohs interfer-
somewhat in the running of the
ctice, Doe May is finding it hard
ting the' men on the f#eld soon
ugh. The navy men have estab-
led a record for speed' in getting
o the gridiron, while, the army
a have to hustle to get thiere by the
r thirty limit.
'ost is somewhat anxions regard-
the outcome of the conference, he
I yesterday, and stated fu ther that
ection of first team men could not
made until the matter was settled.
Case Said Strong
t is expected, however, that the
e game will demonstrate the ma-
al for the varsity. Local authori-
are positive that the team will b
the field despite the fact that thete
some rumors prevalent to the ef-;
;,that the order permitting the
ie may be countermanded.
tanager Van Horn of the Case
ch announced that McCune, letter
n of predpus years and captain of
team, will engineer them through
game at quarter with either Hoop-
>r Roblee, both letter men, to work
center with him.
ther letter men who will be
ught by Case are Vanderhoof at
it half; Rogers at left half; Stev-
:n at left takle and Houriet at left
All -are considered the best ma-
al afforded by the school and with
help given it by new men, it is
ed that they will make the game
Interest Shown
he initial contest of the Wolverines
,ttracting much attention over the
ntry because of the military train-
and the way Yost is handling the
position in his usual hurry-up
quipment for the men which is

ed by shpments of pads and
hes rece.4ived yesterday.

Amateur collegiate athletes, those of
Michigan, have shown themselves
strangely stupid, despite their boast-
ed education, in comparison with un-
lettered professionals of baseball.
None of Michigan's champions of re-
cent years have had the perspicacity
to attach themselves to essential ship-
yard jobs, as have so many stars of
the professional diamond. Instead,
they have enlisted in the armed forces
of the United States, many in aviation,
some in the army, some in the navy, in
fact, they were so obstruse as to put
themselves in positions where they
might get hurt, at the same time us-
ing their athletic skill to best advant-
age. Most of them possessed technical
training that really qualified them to
fill essential safety first jobs, but they
took that training to active branches
of the armed forces, instead of modest-
ly hiding themselves in machine shops
or shipyards 3,000 miles away from a
hostile shot.
Some of Michigan's thoughtless sons
are: Tad Weiman, captain in absentia
of this year's Varsity football, who is
at Camp Dick, Dallas, Texas, and who
expects to be transferred to Ellington
field for a special course in explosives,
and Cliff Sparks, who is at Fort
Worth, Texas, being tutored in the
gentle art of piloting. Pat Smith will
arrive in Dallas within a few days
from ground school at Austin. Beak
Weston,' All-American quarter, and
Rye, a half on last year's team are
both flying at Fantoul, Illinois. Smal-
ley Morrison, catcher of last year's
champion Conference baseball team
is at present stationed at Cape May,
N. J. He expects to be in town with-
in a few days and may be out for foot-
ball practice. Butch Froemke, when
last heard from, was In ensitns'
school at Municipal Pier. Harry Tut-
hill, trainer of the Michigan gridders
and the Detroit Tigers is a first "loot"
and athletic director at Selfrige field.
Steve Farrell, known as the world's
greatest track coach, is holding down
a similar position at Ellington field,





Looks Good

Plen from Yost's
' t a ft in Servie
With two valuable men missing
from tne staff of Michigan athletic
coaches and trainers, the basket ball
coacuh of the last year and the former
director of Freshman gym work have
become important parts of Yost's staff
of footballmen builders.
Dr. May, formerly in charge of the
Freshmen gym work, is now caring
for the health of Michigan's gridders,
while Basketball Coach Mitchell is
assisting Yost on the field.
May takes the place of Trainer Tut-
hill and Mitchell replaces Assistant
Coach Watson. Both of the absent
men are now in the service.
Combining their wartandngridiron
training, members of the navy and
army branches of the S. A. T. C. at
the University, who have been retain-
ed on the football squad by Coach
Yost, will eat at the regular armay
mess halsl it was announced yester-
Under special arrangements, the
athletes subject to the military train-
ing will receive training table diet at
the regular mess halls. Arrange-

To Cast Slacker Net Soont
Washington, Oct. 3. - Within a few
days the government will start its
second campaign against slackers in
about a dozen cities on the eastern
and western coasts. Efforts will be
made to round up all slackers, while
stress will be laid on the gathering in
of men who failed to register Septem-
ber 12. All of the latter will have
abundant time to register if they have
so far neglected to do so.

YOU KNOW by reputation the warmth and service
