Steketee came back at them with
better work. Line plunging was of no
avail to the easterners. Reputed to be
marvels at holding their own on a
wet ground, the Orange was outdone
by Michigan.
Syracuse failed flatly when they at-
tempted to make gains through the
line, for with men like Adams, Wil-
son, and Vick to stop them, th6y
couldn't get far. Barsha for the vis-
itors tried time and again to make a
rush through center count, but the
boy from Toledo, Scott, was there al-
ways, and held him. At least three
times the easterners were held for
downs, unable to get through Michi-
gan's line.
Not satisfied with just kicking his
way to victory, Steketee satisfied the
demands of the stands that a touch-
down be made, and in the fourth quar-
ter, he interrupted a forward pass and
raced across the last white line,
bringing the count to 15.
Every man on the Michigan squad
acquitted himself in first class shape,
all meeting with praise from the Mich-
igan coach. Karpus gained a great
deal of favorable comment with his
fighting spirit, while the work of
Goetz and Cruse kept the stands in a
constant uproar. Goetz showed him-
'self a wonderful man to get down
under a kick, for he brought many
a gain to the Maize and Blue in this
New Man Strong
Young, the latest of recruits on the
Wolverine squad, sprung a surprise
when he picked the ball away from
the Orange eleven when they tried
a triple pass, running 45 yards with
it.. Fortune also made a remarkable
showing. Despite the fact that he had
iad but two days' training before the
gane, the heavy guard not only kept
the Michigan territory from being
invaded, but tore many a hole through
the Orange line.
Coach Yost, with his characteristic
football insight, was primarily re-
sponsible for the victory. Before the
game the Michigan coach had order-
ed his men to play safe on kicks, and
heeding his instruction they won
three free chances at goal, two of
which Steketee made count. j
Despite the downpour, the crowd re-
mained in the stands, watching the
two elevens batter their way up and
down the field. With White and
"Brute" Lamport leading the noise
making, the Wolverines did not lack
a moment's backing. From the very
start to the end, of the fray the root-
ers for the Maize and Blue were with
their men.
Syracuse attempted a number of
fake plays, yet few of them proved
of any value to them. Their triple
pass, which looked as though it were
only a forward pass, failed to gain
ground against Michigan, while their
fake kicks also proved useles's.
Michigan First
. e game was another bit of evi-
degep hearing testimony to the fact
that weptr fotall is strpger than
that of the east despite th traditional
favoritism for the tegAmsnear the
Appalachian mountains. With the
entre country watching the contest,
Coach Yost showed them that Michi-
gan, as usual, would come out on
top. The result of the game gives
Michigan practically the highest
stnding obtainable in the football

world today.
Details of the game follow:
Steketee started the contest with
the kickoff, giving it to Barsha of
Syracuse who was downed on the 26-
yard line. Dunne tackled Erwig who
made two yards followed by a three
Yard gain by Ackley. Barsha failed
to gaiic and the ball went to Michigan
ou downa, on the 35-yard line. With
gains throug toe line by Cohn, Per-
rin and Steketee, through holes open-
ed by Young and Adams, the ball was
carried to the 26th white mark where
Steketee attempted a place kick but
failed. The ball went to Syracuse on
their 20-yard line. Ackley started the
play for the visitors with a fumble,
recovered by Perrin who ran it across
the goal line. The touchdown was not
allowed and the ball was given to the
visitors. Attempted fake plays by
Ackley, Erwig, and Kernan of the
visnitnr hrught them no results and

Despite the fact that Steketee has
been in but three big football games,
he came away from Ferry field yester-
day the star of one of the best con-
tests ever seen on Michigan's field of
battle. His toe won the day for the
Maize and Blue.

Maize and Blue on downs. The Mich-
igan backs again carried the ball to
the Syracuse 12-yard line. A fumble
on the part of the home squad gave
the ball to the visitors. Their back
immediately attempted to storm the
Michigan line, but the freshman cent-
er was too much for them and they
were forced to punt. Cohn returned
the punt to the 35-yard line and car-
ried it every time until Michigan lost
on downs. The Orange team kicked

Knode returning it to the 45-yard line.

er by Barsha failed when Vick got

igan 36-yard line where he was tackl-
