RED BEING FRESHMANI
Walter Camp's choice of Frank
eketee for his mythical All-Amerii-
n first team was most unusual. To
ek a freshman for the full back
sition on an eleven made up of the
w best players in the country has
en done but seldom in the history
the game ,and particularly in the
st decade when the majority of cob
ges and universities have not been
rmitting first year men to play on
eir teams. The honor that has been
ven Michigan's 18-year-old kicking
ck is a great one both to Steketee
mnself, and to the University.
It is likely that he was chosen be-
use of his performance against Sy-
cuse. Walter Camp, throughout the
ars he has picked an All-American
am, has been partial to the eastern
ayers and this year in this regard
s beenno exception. Because Stek-
e scored all of the points against
a strong invaders from the east, and
o because he is one of the best
ckers in the country at the present
ae, he was given the preference
er more experienced, and older
Camp Always Critical
The Yale critic's official team has
ways come in for more or less crit-
sm each year upon its appearance
Colliers magazine, because of his
ry apparent favoritism to the east.
en in the years that the western
hools have been the victors in the
ersectional games and have proven
emselves the equal of the . coast
yers, Camp has not changed his]
rhis year has been such a year.
.e west has performed well in all
a games played against elevens
an along the Atlantic seaboard,
th service and university. Although
re were few clashes between the
ipools of the two sections both the
eat Lakes and the Municipal Pier
tms played several games with east-
i elevens and won them all. Pitts-
rg, admittedly the best aggrega-
n of gridiron players east of Ohio,
re defeated by the Cleveland Naval
serve team ,who before had been
'eated by the Municipal Pier eleven
o 0. The Municipal Pier early in
season defeated Illinois only 7 to
which proved according to dope, of
irse, a poorbmethod, that Illinois
)ld have 'been able to beat the
st in the east. As Michigan has
rer recognized the superiority of the
inois, and because they defeated
racuse, supposedly the second best
,in in their section, 15 to 0, dope
ems to point to a victory for the
)lverines also in case of a battle
h the team from Pennsylvania.
Goetz Best of Yostmen
:amp's choice of but one man from
s section of the country certainly
nes in for some just criticism.
ose who have followed the Michi-
i team during the past season are
animous in their opinion that Cap-
a-elect Goetz was the best. individ-
played on the Wolverine eleven,
was given a position of tackle on
third team while Usher, the big
racuse tackle, was placed in this
qtion on the first eleven. Usher
eared poorly as compared with
etz in the game played between
two teams here.
)eples of Illinois was picked at
ter on the second team and is
ne from the west in this choice.
the third team Goetz and Eck-
g of Minnesota at half back were
only ones who were honored.
don of California was picked from
far west as guard on the third
m and sevral men from the south
e picked on the second and third
ms. One from Georgia Tech was
lored by being placed on the first
m. The rest were chosen from the
tern schools that put teams in the

TO START MONDAY
-With Waterman gymnasium now
completely renloated and painted up,
"Doc" May is issuing another call for
both Varsity and freshman track mate-
rial. "Doc" May will do the coaching
work himself until Steve Farrell re-
turns, u sng the same system that has
been in vogue, in former years. The
Varsity and freshman track candi-
dates are asked to report next Monday
afternoon at 4 o'clock qnd the new'
men are asked to have a slip of paper
giving their names and the event
which they wish to, try out for.
Due to the late start that is being
made on the Varsity team this year,
the organization of the class teams
will be delayed until the Varsity is
well 'under way, according to "Doc"
May. Whether or )not there will be a
University rifle club will depend on
hlow 'tke other athletic activities get
started and has not been definitely de-
cided as yet.
BASKETBALL IS TO
HAVE NO MANAGER
The Varsity basketball team will go
through the 1919 season without the
services of a student manager. No
one was selected last spring becuse
of the.. inexperience , of those who
tried out. The court game has had
only the one season attMichigan, and
has not had time to build up a corps
of student managers, as the other
sports have. It was therefore decided
by the athletic authorities this fall
that no one in school had experience
enough for the positions. The work
will be handled by the coaching staff
and the force at the athletic office.
. Later in the season it is probable
that a call will be sent out for try-
outs for the positions of assistant
manager Announcement of this will
be made later.

OFFICER QUINTET WILL
FIRST GAME IN
AS KETBALL TEAM MEETS
CUSTER JIVE TOMORROW
.Michigan basketball team will open
its season at home tomorrow night in
Waterman gymnasium when they meet
the fast Camp Custer officers' team.
It is the official beginning of the Wol-
verines second basketball season.
The present winter bids fair to hold
a more successful year for Coach
Mitchell's men than the last one, in
which they didn't win a Conference
game. The trip of last. week 'keyed
them up for the opening clashes and
served as good practice to round the
quintet into shape. On Saturday, aft-
er the game tomorrow with the offic-
ers, St. Mary's college will appear at
Waterman gymnasium. The first Con-
ference game, is with- Chicago in Chi-
cago on Jan. 24. The first Big Ten
game at home is Ohio 'State, Feb. 21.

sociation at the time he entered the
military service of the United States,

though by reason of absence he has
been dropped from his class into a
lower class or has been transfered

Call Off Indoor Meets
It is further proposed that resi-
dents, as members of the S. A. T. C.
and thereafter, without interruption
as regular students, shall be' regard-
ed as complying with the require-
ments of the association. Another
proposed change would eliminate the'
requirement for a full calendar year's
residence of those who have won
places in inter-collegiate or open com-
petition as a condition precedent for
the 1919 championships.'
Other proposed amendments call for
