The last shrill blast of the whistle
has sounded, and the game is now
history. The great throng of specta-
tors, some happy and rejoicing, oth-
ers sad and dejected, is slowly wend-
ing its way from Ferry field. The
warriors are doffing their war paiit,
for the great battle which they have
been anticipating for many weeks, is
over, and one side has conquered.
But there is more than the score,
more than the final result as reckon-
ed in points, to be considered. That
-team is really victorious which can
still hold its head high and conscience
clear and, even though defeated on
the gridiron, can say that it played
fairly and squarely from the first
kickoff to the final down. Scdres,
While denoting superior playing, do
not necessarily imply that the .victor
was more deserving of the conquest
than the team that lost. In the end,
it is really that one big thiig which
characterized the fighting of the
American soldiers in France that
counts-that clean,, fight-hard-to-the-
last-minute spirit-called morale.
Michigan Is. proud of the fact that
she equips her athletic .teams with
the best that money can buy, and that
her field'and gymnasium facilities for
holding contests compare very fav-
orably with the other western uni-
versities. Btu one important factor
in Michigan's athletic program is still
a' prospect - recognition of swim-
ming as a varsity sport. At the pres-
ent time our University is one of the
few large educational institutions i
the west which is not represented by
a varsity swimming team, while in
the east practically every college sup-
ports swimming as one of its minor
or major sports.
Neglected as this phase of our ath-
letic life has been, there Is, how-
ever, no reason why we cannot make
restitution for our delay now. Last
year an informal swimming team en-
gaged in competition with other col-
leges in the state, but only in an un-
official capacity. The only available
place for the members of this team
to practice was the Y. M. C. A. pool,
but with the Union pool expected soon

to develop into a reality, this objec-
tion must be withdrawn.
It is obviousthat in order to keep
abreast with the spirit of the times,
Michigan should follow in the foot-
steps of her sister universities in the
east and west, and proceed with the
recognition of swimming as a varsity
The Michigan spirit that pervaded
the stands today need not be re-
stricted to one game, nor even to one
season. We have three major, and
several minor and informal sports
waiting their turn for our support.
What's become of the old-fashion-
ed football player who wore a nose-
guard and after a big play threw his
headgear off the field into the water-
bucket on the sidelines.
"What a kind hearted man," ex-
claimed the fair one as the referee
announced time up for halves, "he
knew those boys needed a rest."

who reminds us of just two people-

Presents Patched Lineup

(By L.-B. Grey, The Daily Maroon)
This year the Maroons are invading
the Wolverine stronghold for the
first' time since the memorable game
of 1904, when Willie Heston, Tom
Hammond and Germany Schulz were
wearikig the Maize and Blue and Hugo
Bezdek and Walter Eckersall were in
the Maroon lineup. Chicago was giv-
en then only an outside chance - ofr
winning. Michigan won 22 to 12, aft-
er a bitter contest.
. The situation today is not dissim-
ilar. Chicago is in no wise as well
fortified with stars as it was in the
old days, but the same brand of fight
is there under the old colors. How-
ever badly shot the team may be
- when it trots onto Ferry field, there
is no doubt but that it will prove a
stubborn opponent.
First Prospects Good.
'Starting the season with 13 letter
men, including Cole, Elton, Crisler
and Hinkle, Coach Stagg seemed well
'n the way to clinch Conference grid
honors. How near he came to ac-
compilishing this is evident from the
7 to 6 game with Ohio State and the
3 to 0 battle with Illinois, when all
of these mainstays were either out of
the game entirely or were crippled

so early in the fray as to eliminate
them as factors in the play.
Elton was barred on the eve of theC
Ohio game by the new interpretation'
of the Conference ruling on eligibility
of S. A. T. C. players. Cole suffered
a dislocated shoulder early in the
Ohio game, throwing him out for the
remainder of the season, while Cris-
ler was laid out later in the same
battle, and probably will not appear
in the Maroon lineup again until the
Wisconsin game next week, if then.
Hinkle, by his few minutes of play
against Illinois, aggravated the in-
jury which kept him from the Buck-
e, e contest, and is only a distant pos-
s iality.
Substitutes Feature
At best, the Maroons will present
a patched lineup. The forward wall,
with Reber at center, Hartong and
Redmon at guards, and Capt. Jackson
and McGuire at tackles, is intact with
the exception of Redmon, who was
laid out last Saturday. Lewis and
Barker, however, are capable men for
Redmon's berth.
One of the ends will be cared for
by Strohmeier, star of last year's
freshman squad. If in shape, Hinkle
or Halladay will cover the other wing,
but at present Halladay's name stands
near Hinkle's on the invalid list.

Clark is an Alternative
The personnel of the backfield al-
lows for almost infinite . conjecture.
'Tatge will be at uqarterback. Han-
isch, a fullback, who was out of the
Ohio game because of injuries, prob-
ably will play one halfback. Rouse
and Neff were both hard hit by the
lilini, but one of them is likely to fill
the other halfback position. Hutch-
inson, who performed in stellar fash-
ion against Michigan last year, but
who was out of the Illinois game, is
another possibility. Palmer is the
likely choice for fullback,
Maroon Goal Hard to Cross
Chicago defeated the jinxed Michi-
gan eleven last year 13 to 0. Judging
from scores this season, Maropns and
Wolverines are about on a par. The
Maroons have the distinction of hav-
ing been scored upon less than any
other team in the Big Ten, and of al-
lowing only one touchdown to cross
their goal-line. It is an enviable rec-
ord they will seek to maintain, even
with the odds so much against them.
Rat h Tub Termed Luxury in Holland
The Hague, Nov. 12.-Bath tubs and
bathroom fixtures appear on the list
of "luxuries" which would be subject
to a 10 per cent luxury tax in Hol-
land if a revenue bill now before the
Dutch parliament were passed.

brawn and not so much brains as it
is today, until the present time, the
eyes of the sporting world ire focus-
ed upon that gridiron where the Ma-
roon clad warriors battle with the
wearers of the blue jerseys. Just
once a year that game takes place,
and just once a year the sporting
,world is allowed to see the greatest-
rivals for football honors in the west,
battle with each other.
Today another of those "Harvard-
Yale games of the west" was played.
It had little effect upon the general
standing of the two teams, yet it was
watched by a crowd that thought just
as those men on the field thought -
that there was something important
at stake.
Each Win Eight
It is Michigan's ambition to beat
Chicago each year, and it is Chicago's
ambition to win from Michigan an-
Records show that to date, the two
tashave each wxon an eual nu"-
ber of games. Sixteen have been
played. Eight have been victories for
Michigan and eight have seen the
Maroons on the long end of the score.
The game today, however, changed
that, as you already know.
Football relations between the two
schools were opened way back in
1891, with the Maroons capturing first
honors by a shutout. For four years
they held the edge on the Wolverines,
and then it came Michigan's turn to
win. That was in '95 when the Maize
and Blue ; triumphed by a 12 to 0
So it see-sawed until 1905, when
Michigan, unable to find competition
in the west to match the peerless
teams that Coach Fielding H. Yost
was building in Ann Arbor, withdrew
from the almost new Western Confer-
ence and sought conquests in other
But that final year in the confer-
ence saw the honors hotly contested
by the Maroons-and the Maroons
won. They made their last game with
Michigan until 13 years later, a most
glorious victory.
Chicago Won in 1905 '
It was by but a small count in that
year of 1905 that the Maroons wonj
the game, but they won it, making
Michigan anxious to get an opportu-
nity to come back at them. The score
of that historic battle was 2 to 0. A
safety scored by Walter Eckersal,,
then playing quarterback for Chica-
go, and today one of the foremost
football critics of the country, spelled
defeat for Michigan.
Thirteen years later Yost was to
"et revenge.
In 1918, after an absence of one
year nore than a dozen, from Big Ten;
races, the Michigan team was put
bacl into the running,~and Yost was
given his first opportunity to try to
reverse the defeat of 1905. The Mich-
igan wartime football team got that
revenge and won the edge over the
Chicago team by a 13 to 0 score, but
Chicago evened it up again the year


has been out of the game because
of injuries.
(By Wallace F. Elliott)
Fighting daily over their long
course, faces drawu and fists clench-
ed, Michigan's cross country men, the
hardest worked and least honored of
all Wolverine athletes, are doing their
bit to put, the name of their school
before the'athletic world. The Var-
sity and freshman together number
nearly 80, all of them men who turn
out regardless of weather conditions
and other detriments to outdoor activ-
ity, and the result of their labors
means honor to the University.
Purdue Wins
True, the results of the meets held
thus far this year by the Varsity are
anything but encouraging. The Pur-
due harriers overwhelmed Michigan's
men in the opening encounter and
last week in the state meet at Lans-
ing, M. A. C. won a hard earned vic-
Credit, however, must not be given
exclusively to the victors, for the loser
is sometimes deserving of much more
than his opponent. Michigan's four
best cross country men are, for var-
ious reasons, unable to compete this
year, and the turnout for the sport is
far from the size expected by Coach
Farrell. Therefore, to those who have
come out for cross country all the
more credit is due. They have made
possible a team which has fought all
season against odds and whose success
is greater than the scores of past
meets would indicate.
Six Man Team
The Varsity cross country team is
captained by. R. C. Brannaf, '21, and
the remaining five men are Houfstat-
er, Freeborn, Whittemore, Standish,
and Penberthy.
On Saturday, Nov. 6, an All-fresh-
man run was held to determine the
final make-up of the freshman squad.
In this the first six men were chosen
and those six who first crossed the fin-
ish line were Davis, Leland, Arndt
Hattendorf, Bowen, and Yakes.
It is from the cross country squad
that Michigan's distance men of the
future are picked. Therefore give hon-
or where honor is due. The Maize
and Blue cross country men deserve
the support and encouragement of the
entire student body, for by their work
they have shown their loyalty to Mich-
No Bolshevism for School -Children
Geneva, Switzerland, Nov. 12.-The
school children of the little Savoy
town of Bourg went on a strike today
because the head-mistress of the mu -
nicipal school, who recently is said
to have become a bolshevist, delivered
a lecture praising Nikolai Lenine, the
Russian premier.
