Player's Ability to Block Punts and
Capture Fumbles Wins Him
NEXT YEAR'S GRID FANS
TO WITNESS STAR LINEUP
Angus Goetz, '19, left tackle of
Yost's war-time 1918 football eleven,
was elected captain Sunday morning,
of next year's varsity grid team, when
the letter men assembled at a local
studio to have the official picture
Goetz's ability to block punts and
capture fumbled balls won him the
captaincy of the Michigan football
team for 1919.
Of the 18 votes cast, 12 of the play-
ers voted for Goetz, three for Cohn,
and three for Fortune,
Goetz Earns Two "M's"

The new captain elect fell on
fumbled balls, two of which, were the
result of his Docking punts in the
Ohio State, Chicago, and Michigan
Aggie games, and each time he scored
a touchdown on them. His touch-
down in the Buckeye contest helped
to pave the way for the undefeated
record of the Wolverines this year.
Goetz was chosen by Walter Ecker-
sall in his all-Conference eleven, and
received many praises, from Coach
Fielding H. Yost.
Captain to Enter lAw School
The new Maize and Blue captain
will be a graduate from the literary
college this summer, and since he has
won his new position it is likely that
he will enter the Law school next fall.
When the 1919 grid season opens,
football fans will see a strong Wol-
verine team, for a number of the old
pigskin stars will be back in the line-
up, and will be under the leadership
of Goetz, who has more than once
demonstrated his ability to think in a

the near future similar to the one tak-

three years more.
The first scrimmage of the year for
the University of Kansas basketball
team took place last Thursday when
the team met for a short session.
Guy Sundt was' chosen captain of

With only 12 men out for basket-
ball, of whom two were on the varsity
squad last year, the prospects of the

The basketball game scheduled be-

Company G won the naval unit
championship last night by defeating
Co. D by a score of 29-23.
SThe game started at 7:45 o'clock
in the city Y. M. C. A. gymnasium. The
game was marked by poor team work
on the part of both organizations.
The basket throwing was bad, and did
not come up to the regular style pre-
viously shown by the two quintets.
Heffe and Kiftler scored most of the
points for Co. D, while the stars of

ALPENA TURNS CLOCKS AHEAD;
HAS SAME TIME AS DETROIT
Alepena Dec. 17. - The city of Al-
pena this morning set its clocks and
watches one hour ahead to eastern
standard time, and now is, w-th De-
troit, numbered among the fe Mich-
igan towns that adhere to the old day-
light saving plan put into effect by
order of congress last spring for the
entire country during the summer
Alpena's . workers will now go to
their labor an hour ahead of the rest
of the state, excepting those of De-
troit and the few other towns that
have taken similar action, and they
will conclude their work an hour ear-
lier in the evening, giving them more

PEACE NEGOTIATIONS COURSE
ELECTED BY LARGE NUMBER
Prof. Robert T. Crane's new course
in peace negotiactions held its first
meeting at 3 o'clock yesterday after-
noon. The professor stated that the
general plan of work would be to
study what the basis of peace nego-
tiations have been in settling former
wars and to discuss what the
basis of the forthcoming negotiations
Approximately 100 men and only
six women have elected the course
and because of the large number, the
class will meet hereafter in room 101.
TWO VASITY VETRAN
APPEAR FOR PRCTIE
FIRST GAME TO TAKE PLACE AT
DETROIT WITH RAYL'S
"Prospects for this year's Varsity
basketball are certainly brightening,";
said Coach Mitchell last night.
One look at the squad justifies the
statement. The attendance last night
was unusually good and a scrappy
tussle between the Varsity squad and
the freshmen was the main attrac-
tion on the program.
Up to this time the S. A. T. C. de-
mobilization and innoculation has in-
terrupted practice, and has knocked
out all plans to such an extent that
many wondered if real work would
ever start. But fans have the coach's
word that the big season has finally
commenced in earnest, and that Michi-
gan can look forward to a team that
will wipe out to some extent last
Richener and Cress Are New Men
Perhaps one of the reas'ons for the
coach's statement is the admission of
two knew men to the squad. Philip
Richener, last year's running guard,
and Elmer Cress have arrived in Ann
Arbor and have signed up for prac-
tice. Richener was an "M" man last
season. Hewlitt and Richener will
be the only veterans on the quintet
Richener started the season last
fall as forward, but was later chang-
ed to guard, where he displayed a
great deal of brilliancy.
Cress Sub on 1918 Team
Cress was a substitute last year and
played in only one Varsity game, but
his experience has a great value. He
has possibilties, both as a guard and
center. Critics believe that this man
will give Cohn a run for the position
of center. This is Cohn's first year
out for the basketball team, and so
far he has had no serious competi-
tor, but Cress' appearance will proba-
bly change matters a trifle.
Coach Mitchell says that he hopes
that Waterman gymnasium will be in
shape soon so that if the squad is
called back the latter part of the
Christmas holiday season work can be
tFreshnmen to Practice in January
No freshmen practice will be held
with the present gymnasium facili-
ties, as the large number of freshmen,
who are at present trying out for the
squad, cannot be handled with ease
in the Ann Arbor High school gym-
The Maize and Blue quintet will
have a hard schedule beside the one
planned with the Conference teams.
The Rayl state champions will clash
with the Wolverines at Detroit on
Jan. 6, and the University of Detroit
and Kazoo Normal will play Michigan
on Jan. 18 and 19.
BELGIUM MORE UNITED AFTER
Bruges, Dec. 16. - The one time
German governor of Belgium, Von
Bissing, rendered Belgium a sign-
al service by endeavoring to exploit
his plan of splitting the country into
two parts by his scheme of Flemish
autonomy. Judged from present in-
dications it has united Belgium as
never before in its history. Before the
war here was a well defined Flemish
movement but when Von Bissing at-
tempted to exploit it the Flemish de-
murred, for they feared the German
The number of disciples converted
to the policy by Von Bissing is small.
Adventurers, discontented office seek-
ers and for the most part youths, they
are no longer in position to champion
the designs of Von Bissing for they
have taken refuge in Germany or Hol-
land where it is likely they will spend
years of exile.
