Michigan Aggies Have Strongest Team
in Years According to Authente
Big Crowd Expected to Watch Annual
Engagement Between Two
Michigan Teams
"It is going to be some game!"
That is what Coach Yost thinks
about the coming Michigan Agricul-
tural college clash with his pro-
After having given the varsity
bunch a gruelling in signal work yes
terday, the "Hurry Up" coach came
off the field with a smile. The first
string men had gone through the day
with the finest kind of precision, yet
the clash with the farmer bunch from
the up-state college is expected to
give the team a wonderful test.
Farmers Strong
Despite "propaganda" to the effect
that the Agges were a light, yet a
fast bunch, and that the Michigan
bunch would have a cinch in meet-
ing the M. A. C. team, authentic re-
ports from the farmer college give
them credit for having one of the
most powerful teams in years.
In the face of reports that the
bunch was very light, reports have
been verified that give the Aggies
credit for having a heavy and offen-
sive line, while a veteran line man,
who was transferred to full back be-
cause of his good showing this year,
is said to be one of their mainstays.
His weight is reported at 190 pounds,
while his motive power is said to be
just six times that, for his height is
exactly that number of feet.
Coach Yost is preparing to meet
the onslaught of the Aggies with a
team that is one of the finest in the
country, acknowledged so by critics.
Despite the absence of Usher and
Cress from the varsity line-up, the
coach has a sufficient amount of ma-
terial to give the M. A. C. crowd some
resistance that will make them sit up
and take notice.
Although but one team has been
met by the Wolverines thus far this
season, the resistance that Coach
Mitchell's squad of reserves has been
giving the first string men is in it-
self sufficient to give the varsity
bunch the right kind of practice.
Line Strengthened
The Michigan line has been greatly
strengthened in the past few days, it
having been the only weak spot on
the team. Constant drilling against
the scrubs has had the desired effect
upon the guards and tackles, and the
line is now almost impregnable.
With the overflow of back material,
Coach Yost has been sending some
of the prospects for the rear line into
the tackle and guard positions with
marked results. Probably Earnie
Vick has made the best success as the
result of a transfer, since he is now
filling the guard position.
Perrin, who received a severe cut
on the head last Friday as the result
of a smash through the reserves line,
is back in condition, yet the patch on
the cut Is still there. He will prob-
ably be able to play in the M. A. C.
Coach Yost is especially desirous of
student support for this game, which
he considers one of-the most impor-
tant of the year. It is attracting at
tention over the entire state, as the re-

sult of the strength of the Aggies be-
ing made known.
"Flu" Won't Stop Game
Despite the prevalence of influenza
at the school, and reports that it has
been placed under quarantine, special
arrangements for the trip to be made
by the football team have been suc-
cessfully arranged.
It is prophesied that one of the
largest crowds in the history of Mich-
igan-Aggie contests will watch the
game. Despite the prevalence of "flu,"
this is not expected to deter from
the attendance because of the bleach-
ers being absolutely in the open air!
No Aviation School to be Started Here,
Authorities officially deny the ru-
mor that there will be an aviation
school immediately started here. Al-
though three aviation officers visited
the city, they mentioned nothing
about looking for grounds and prepar-
ing for a school. Even though the
University might be considered by
military authorities, the present war
situation does not encourage the

Newberry Chapel
Now Gymnasiu


Let's go Michigan! The enemy will invade the territory Saturday
afternoon. The battle promises to be one of terrific heat. The strength
of the opposing army is such that the utmost effort on the part of
the defenders alone, will drive them back.
Michigan, the M. A. C. football team comes to Ann Arbor Saturday
afternoon. The Aggies are strong, yet our warriors and their general
promise a contest full of pep. Michigan, Coach Yost says it is go-
to be "some game" and Coach Yost knows.
Let's go Michigan, 7,000 strong, let's drive the Aggies back. Let's
show Coach Yost that we are with him, that we are with the team,
that we are backing the boys who are defending the honor of our
school.. Let's fill those stands till they won't hold any more people,
and let's help the Yostmen take the game.
Michigan, let's go!


Game Now Certain

Alas, the traditions and six inch
coats of dust of the old chapel in
Newberry hall are destroyed for that
sacred room on the second floor is
no longer a chapel but a desecrated
shrine, no longer a place for silent
meditation, but a place for wild ex-
citement. tI has become a boxing
ring. Newberry hall will henceforth
be known as the army and navy rec-
reation headquarters for the men in
the southern part of town. It is not
to replace Lane hall, but merely to'
serve in conjunction with it.
Counters are being installed in the
hallway for canteen work. Telephones
have been installed for the conven-
ience of the men. Rooms on the
first floor have been fitted out for
reading and writing. Various kinds
of athletic sports may be enjoyed in
the large room on the second floor.
The auditorium there will be used for
entertainments for the men. The two
large rooms in front, on the second
floor, will be suitably furnished so that
soldiers may entertain their friends
there. None of the partitions are be-
ing removed in the overhauling proc-
Newberry hall is ready to take
care of, at least, a part of the 800
new draftees of Section B of the S.
A. T. C. who are arriving today from
all parts of the state.

No Room in Gymnasium Because Sold-
iers Are Barracked There; Prob-
lem to Be Taken Up
Despite the fact that the entire
Waterman gymnasium has been taken
over by the military authorities, there
is still a chance that freshmen and
others not in the S. A. T. C. may take
gym work.
Dr. George A. May, former physical
director, at present trainer for Coach
Yost's football men, said that an at-
tempt will probably be made to enable,
the formation of gym classes, but up
to the present there has not been
room in the gymnasium for lockers
or any insruction.
It is probable that athletic teams
from different companies in the S. A.
T. C. will be formed, and as it is
essential to find accommodations for
any army teams first the time when
gym classes can start actual work

seems a long way off. Those
the S. A. T. C. can only wait
their part by enabling the milit
thorities to continue with their

IuqJU-U I NUulhI. WW
Doctor May, Trainer, to Take Specialj
Care of Track Men This
Experienced Men to B e Cared for
First, Inexperienced to Come
Distance and middle distance run
ners- are to be given their initial
workout at Ferry field this afternoon
according to an announcement made
by Doctor May, who is in charge of{
the track work. All candidates are
expected to report promptly at 4:30
o'clock, when they will be given lock-
Doctor May emphasized the need of
ample protection for the runners, be-
cause of the cold, and changeable
Wear Woolen Underwear!
"No man will be allowed to get in-
to'the workout unless he is provided
with woolen underwear and a sweat-
er," the doctor said. "We don't want
any rheumatism among the boys."
He announced that extreme care
would be taken, that the runners may
be kept in the pink of condition.
Every man musth furnish his own
running clothes for the practice pe-
riod. The regular track uniform will
do. A number of men reported for a
workout yesterday but because of the
lack of proper suits, there was no
A number of new candidates also
turned up, reporting for long dis-
tance work in most cases.
The trainer is of the opinion that
with men like Sedgwick, Butler and
Buell, all last year men who have
reported for the workout, a remark-
able two mile relay team can be work-
ed up.
Sedgwick, captain of the track
squad, already holds a record for the
five mile cross country race, while
Buell is one of Michigan's famed sons,
having been on the team that repre-
sented Michigan at Chicago. His rec-
ord there was a good one.
Butler, the other man of the three,
has established a record of 50 2-5
seconds for the 440 yard dash, and Is
therefore considered a valuable man.
Larson, another veteran of track
work, is also back in the game. His
specialty is the half mile.
With this array of material, be-
sides that which is afforded by the
new men in the school, Doctor May
is of the opinion that a remarkable
track team can be produced. With
this in mind, the fall track work is
being carried on.
Men Asked to Report
Besides new candidates who are
asked to report tomorrow, the fol-
lowing men are asked to be on the
field, at 4:30 o'clock sharp.
Robert A. Brown, Donald C. Dou-
glass, Robert P. Everett, Virgil Houf
stater, H. D. Shaw, Lawrence Jerome,
Douglass I. Dye, Frank G. Merz, Louis
H. Schimmel and E. A. Earhart.
Schimmel is also a last year's man,
and with a record behind him, he
promises some interesting work.
These men are on the prefered list
for the middle and long distance runs,
having had experience that warrants
their being placed on the bunch at
once. Those who have had no ex-
perience will be taken care of later.
More men are Wanted.

"Michigan will play M. A. C. next
Saturday afternoon on Ferry field,"
stated Athletic Director Philip G.
Bartelme last night. "The coach sent
me word that they would be on hand
for the game."
For a time it was thought by foot-
ball enthusiasts that the Lansing
Farmers would probably not play the
Wolverines on account of the threat-
ening influenza epidemic.
The game will start at 3 o'clock
Saturday afternoon. For the first
time in the history of Michigan foot-
ball with that college, there will be no
reserved seats for the contest.


School of Danci

Coach Mitchell's call for men
brought out several newcomers for
the reserve football squad yesterday.
There were more than enough for two
elevens, so the coacher of the second
string men divided them into two
teams for a little scrimmage.
According to Coach Mitchell, the
two bunches showed up very well,
and he expects to form an all star
team from them that will give the
varisty squad some real opposition
when they will meet in practice games.
It is probable that they will be sent
against the varsity bunch today, un-
less Coach Yost is busy teaching his
proteges the art of new plays.
