SIX WOLVERINES CHOSEN,
ORANGE TEAM GETS FOUR.
Proved Foremost Individual
Because of Ability to Follow
Of the three games played on the
Ferry field gridiron during the past
season, the Wolverines have conquer-
ed all, among whom were the M. A.
C. and Syracuse elevens, reputed to
be the strongest in their sections of
the country. The other contest, with
Case, was the usual walk away for
the Maize and Blue.
Yet in facing these three teams,
Coach Yost's 1918 products have met
some powerful and brainy football
material. But the strength of the
Michigan team proved the greater.
In the course of the opposition, a
number of especially brilliant men
haveg made themselvesrprominent on
°the gridiron. Considering all of the
teams that have played on the Ferry
field gridiron this fall, a powerful
teamn could be picked from them.
Michigan, by sheer superiority,
takes the lead in the number of men
on an All-Ferry-field team, with six
men. Syracuse must be accredited
with four, and M. A. C. with one. Case
did not come up to the standard set,
and could gain no place on the elev-
en, yet she exhibited some powerful
By virtue of his thorough football
knowledge, and ability to keep in
touch with the ball, no matter where
it went, Goetz earned the right tac-
kle position on the all star eleven.
Steketee's wonderful toe gave him the
full back position, while his ability
as an aggressive player cinches the
place for him.
Vick's certainty in passing the ball
and ability to open holes, together
with his defensive playing, makes
.him the ideal center, while Dunne,
because of his accuracy, must be giv-
en the left end. Cohn is unquestion-
ably entitled to a position in the
:#Hbackfield, for the hall in his hands
means a gain every time. Fortune,
a powerful line man, is the logical
player for left tackle. This finishes
Michigan's contribution to the eleven.
Syracuse Gets Four
Syracuse comes next, with its most
brilliant player, Erwig, who must be
given the left half position on the
star eleven. Ackley, the kicking quar-
terback of the Orange team, because
of his all around ability, together
with his brains, makes an ideal mani
at the pilot position. Dooley and
Alexander, both of Syracuse, and
playing, guards, held their positions
like stogie walls, against the attacks
of the Maize and Blue, when they
played on Ferry field, and are there-
fore entitled to the positions next to
To fill the other end position, it is
hard to find a man better than
Schwei of the farmer eleven. He was
the only player who scored against
the Maize and Blue, during the en-
tire 1918 season. Grabbing a forward
pass for the third time in succes-
sion, he managed to cross the Maize
and Blue goal line.
Other Good Players
Other powerful players have pre-
sented themselves on the Wolverine
gridiron, and are deserving of men-
tion, yet lack of space prohibits it.
Case, although unable to secure a
single berth on the all star eleven,
must be given credit for having pre-
sented one of the most powerful elev-
ens in years.
Show Managers Freed of Flu Charges
Terre Haute, Ind.-The cases of the
15 theater managers, of this city, who
'were arrested on Nov. 28, on a charge
of endangering the public health be-
cause they refused to comply with a
closing order issued by the city board
of health, were dismissed, at a hear-
ing in city court, on the motion of
the prosecuting attorney.
This step was taken after Judge
Shafer had sustained an objection,
raised by attorneys for the exhibit-
ora, to the introduction as evidence
of the order issued by the board of

FAVORED BY DR. MAY
Compulsory physical training for
all students of the University is ad-
vocated by Dr. May, trainer of Coach
Yost's war-time eleven, and director
of physical training. In speaking of
the prospects of the idea being work-
ed out here, the physical director said
that it should be made compulsory
for upperclassmen as well as fresh-
Should training be instituted, class-
es cannot be started for some time
because it will first be necessary to
get the gymnasium intshape. It would
also have to meet with the approval
of University authorities first.
"Upperclassmen would be allowed
to choose theyform of athletics in which
they wished to get their training," is
the doctor's plan, "which would be a
great advantage over the present plan.
This would bring the people who are
now spectators, into the actual work."
Training camps, in the physical
director's opinion, should be made
separate from the University, if they
are to be along military lines, that
they will not interefere with the stud-
ies. He does not believe that the R.
O. T. C. would be practical for this
BRI6KT, SAYS MITCHELL
CENTER POSITION PROV-
STRONG MAN ON
Basketball prospects are beginning
to look brighter, according to Coach
Elmer Mitchell of the Varsity team,
yesterday. Following a practice scrim-
mage with the high school five at the
high school gymnasium yesterday, the
coach was more pleased with his men
than at any time this year.
That the team is beginning to take
shape is apparent, for the precision
with which the men are now working
speaks well of their own ability as
that of their coach.
Cohn Shows Up Well
Cohn, the brilliant football star,
filling the center position on the Var-
sity quintet, has developed wonder-
fully during the past few days, and
promises to be as important a star
in the five mantgame as he has been
in the grid contest.
During the workout held in the high
school gymnasium yesterday, team-
work featured the practice. Prac-
tically every man on the first quintet,
is working as thoughttheyhaveuplay-
ed together for years.
As it now stands, the first team is
composed of Hewlitt and Karpus, for-
wards; Cohn, center; and Bornstein
and Weiss, guards.
More practice will be held during
the coming week, and it is hoped by
the coach that more material will ap-
pear for workouts. Despite the fact
that the men are now coming along
in fine shape, there is still room for
Only 11 Men on Squad
A squad of eleven men, according to
Coach Mitchell, is entirely too small
from which to pick a Varsity quintet,
yet he is of the opinion that more
men will appear as the result of hav-
ing been discharged from the ser-
The freshman basketball stars, who
are ineligible for the Varsity team, are
anxious to get at work on their class
quintet, and it is very probable, says
the coach, that it will be formed im-
mediately after vacation. There is an
abundance of first year material.
FOOTBALL CLAIMS THIRTEEN
LIVES DURING 1918 SEASON
Chicago, Dec. 14. - Thirteen lives
were claimed by the gridiron sport
during the 1918 season according to
figures compiled by the Associated
Press and announced today. The ma-
jority of the victims, according to the
report, were in no way connected with
Two men from the state of Michi-
gan were named in the list. They
were: Gordon Scott, 17, Grand Rap-
ids, and Michael Janowsky, '24, Owos-
so. Scott played with a high school
team, and Janowsky was killed in a
P. R. Children Offer Name for Ship
(By Associated Press)
San Juan, P. R.-One hundred and
fifty thousand school children want
the United States to name a battle-

forth this fact has been sent to Pres-
ident Wilson and Congress.
Ensign Beach Visits in Ann Arbor
Ensign Robert S. Beach, '19, U. S.
N. A. R. F'., is spending the week-end
in Ann Arbor. Ensign Beach left the
University last April to enlist in the
navy. He 'intends to come back to
college next semester.
Gobs to Battle.
For Unit Honors
To decide upon the basketball cham-a
pionship of the naval unit of the
University, Companies D and G, will
clash at the Ann Arbor Y. M. C. A.
tomorrow night at 7:30 o'clock.
With the Company G team boast-
ing of Ensel as their center and cap-
tain, their claims for the honor look
strong. Ensel was formerly with the
Atlanta Tech High School, and' was
an all state man in Georgia.
The Company D team overlooks this
fact, however, because they hold that
they have a right to the champion-
ship because their C. P. O., Chief
Hesse, a former Lansing star, is head-
ing their bunch.
It is prophesied that the contest
will be quite a battle for a keen riv-
alry as to their claims to the honor
has sprung up between the two teams.
The football captain for the
season of 1919 will be elected
at 10 o'clock this morning,
when the "M men will

The official picture will be
