Hard work is the portion of the Var-
pity from now on..
With the M. A. C. gae looming so
closetand the test with Ohio State fol-
lowing only a dace to the rear there
will be no more easy days for the
candidates for an "M" this season. Yost
is after the men hard and not a sin-
gle individual escapes without re-
ceiving plenty of attention.
No Idle Moments
While it is not likely that there will
be scrimmage every day or even very
often, yet no one on the squad will
have any chance to grow soft if the
way the coaches keep hammering is
~any indication. Cliff Sparks rattles
his signals out so fast that it keeps
the line and the backs all jumping to
get down in time to charge with the
snapping of the ball. The coaches at
East Lansing and Columbus, Ohio,
won't have to keep their ears to the
ground to hear what's going on in
Ann Arbor right now. They ought to
be able to hear the Wolverine battle
yell every time the team goes down
the field. Coach Fielding H. Yost
makes himself heard also.
Peach Beturns
There is considerable difference in
the lineup as it stood in yesterdays
practice and the way they started
'against Case. Peach and Duke Dunne
haie traded Jobs and whereas Wafse
formery defended the right flank he
operated yesterday on the left, with
Dunne on the off side. Captain Goetz
was in at his regular berth$ left tac-
kle, and Fortune stayed at left guard.
Johnson occupied the teutral position
with Czyaz at his immediate right,
while %lenn, Dunn ,was working out
at the other tackle. The backfield
showed Vick at full, while Cruse, who
played that position against the scien-
tists, Ms been shifted to r'ight half.
Weston was in) his old place and
Sparks piloted the team through sig-
nal drill.
Expect More Changes
The coach stated that there might
be moreq changes and shifts froi ti ne
to tie and that the above is by no
xpeans a permanent line-up. with re-
spect t6 the approaching game with
the Farmers next Saturday. He is
out for the collective Conference scalp
from now on and intim'ated that shke-
up followed by shake-up could be x-
pected until the best possible team
can be found. Every man on the
squad is on his toes as Yost is look-
ing for the best that he has out and
it is up to the men themselves to
?ak@ a place. Everybody is wearing
his fightig fce eow.
O an approximate basis the line'
goes something like this: Peach will
tip the scales at about 180, Goetz about
185, Fortu1e will come close to 18,

In the bakfield Sparks shows about
160 pounds, Weston 150, Cruse 165, and
Vick .in the heavy-weight class at
180. The offensive apparatus of the
Yost machine then averages a shade

the most speed and Sparks and Bill
Cruse have sufficiently demonstrated
their travelling ability in action to
make comment unnecessary.

hand to see their favorites take a lick-'
ing. One thousand seats have been
reserved in the South stand for their
especial benefit.
However it would be a mistake to
say that the Aggies will not fight and
what is more make the Michigan team
fight back. The Kalamazoo eleven
made very little materiMl impression
n the Aggie line, which reads like
a colonel's staff with its five captains;
and had to resort to the overhead
route to land a victory. The Michigan
backs will have ample opportunity to
show how they can hit when they go
breaking into that outer defense.
C stchesl Calls 1
Class Foomvctballa

With their fine showing against the
Varsity Saturday, to spur them on to
further efforts Coach Mather's year-
lings began another week's practice
yesterday. Most of the men were out
in togs, but it was noticeable that the
squad was not as large as usual.
The main feature of the afternoon's
practice was a scrimmage between the
two freshman teams. This contest
resulted in a 14 to 0 victory for the
first freshman squad. Searle, An-.
drews, Banks and Pipp did the best
work for the winners. Andrews took
the ball for 30 yards on the very first
play of the scrimmage, and. after a
few short gains Searle tossed a long
heave to Pipp, the lanky flanker, who
strolled over the final chalk mark for
the first score.
Backfield Shifted
Coach Mather shifted the backfield
around a good deal, so that Banks, the
sturdy half, did not get into the
game until it was half finished. When
he was put in, however, he made
things lively. He made end runs and
line plunges or received forward
passes with equal ease.
The other touchdown came toward
the end of the scrimmage when Searle
went over with the pigskin after a
long march up the field in which all
the backs added their share of con-
sistent gains.
Several of the regulars were out in
uniform but did not get into the scrim-
mage.' Paper, the speedy fullback,
and Van Orden, the big lineman, were
two of these unfortunates.
Two more promising men came out
for the first time yesterday. Klepser,
a fast half, was tried out in the sig-
nal practice. He hails from Omaha
and has played on the Creighton col-
lege team. A local boy named Stipe
also put in his first appearance at
yesterday's workout.
Dummy Loses Weight
Coach Mather sent his men through
a long signal drill during the fore
part of the afternoon. Two teams
raced up and down the field for al-
most an hour under the direction of
their bawling quarters. ' Following
this there was practice at tackling and
blocking the dummy. The latter has
not yet been rigged with a weight so
that a hapless fresh had to be detail-
ed to pull up his lifeless form after
