POWER IN CLOSING
Season Ends with Thrilling Game
Which Every Man on Team
Shows His Ability
VICTORY GIVES SQUAD EVEN y
BREAK ON CONFERENCE GAKES?
Michigan closed its 1920 footballt
season last Saturday by defeating1
Minnesota at Minneapolis in one of!
the most thrilling and hard fought
battles that a Wolverine team, has putl
up in the last two years, and in soz
doing won an even break for Confer-
Although it. is true that the Goph-1
ers made more first downs than theI
Wolverines, nine to six in fact, Michi-l
gan gained practically as much1
ground by straight football, for two'
runs by Banks and Perrin for .20 and?
50 yards, respectively, netted a big
yardage. In passing the Gophers were
far superior, Michigan being unable
to make good one heave.
How desperately the Wolverines
battlbd is shown by the great stands
they made on the 3 yard line and on
the 12 yard line. When defeat seem-
ed imminent at these times, the Michi-
gan line held like stone, and the
Gophers were stopped. The Wolver-
ines put up a great fight, and in spite
of many handicaps emerged victori-
Breaks Not All for Michigan
Contrary to current reports, Mich-1
igan did not get the majority of the?
breaks. A fumbled punt, recovered'
like lightning by Steketee, was our3
Playing on a foreign field against?
a team desperately striving to win
its last homecoming game, and sup-#
ported by a mere handful of loyal'
alumni, Michigan went on to the field
at a disadvantage. By last Saturday,
after a week of rest, the Gophers were
in the best shape of the year and pre-
sented a team harder to beat than any
that Michigan has met this year.
Cappon played the first half with'
the flu, and was taken out in the
second half. This shifted Cohn to
end,aand it necessitated playing Ush-
er at defensive fullback, for. Nelson
who was so great at backing up the1
line injured his hip early in the
second quarter. These two injuries
played havoc with the Michigan de-'
fense, and made possible many of the
Gopher gains through the line.
The muddy field was another handi-
cap, for the Gophers had worked out
there during the paste week. In addi-
tion the Wolverines had undergone a
hard day's journey the day before the
Crucial Decisions Favor Gophers
Two decisions by the field judge al-
most cost Michigan a victory. Lying.
prostrate, Eddie Usher snared a Goph-
er pass and then rolled over. It was
ruled an incompleted pass, when in
reality Usher had made a sensational
Again Brown attempted a pass to
Oss, who was on the eight yard line,
and Steketee jumped up to block the
pass, interfering in no way. The
judge ruled interference, despite the
fact that the ball flew five feet over
the head of both men, and this put
the Gophers near a touchlown. They
rushed it to the one yard line, where
a two yard penalty set them back, and1
on the next play, Dunne and Wieman
stopped Oss on a delayed play through
the line. Steketee then kicked a net
65 yards, taking the ball out of dan-
In the last five minutes, Minnesota
opened u with long frantic passes,
none of which were dangerous. The
Michigan backs completely blocked'
these efforts, and it was obvious thatm'
the Gophers had done their bit some1
time before. At this period of the1
game, the Michigan defense was per-
fect, and no better work could have'
been asked for than in the last five
Steketee's Kicking Phenomenal
Wonderful kicking by Steketee, the1
best he-had done this year, saved the
game for Michigan. Booting from be-
hind his goal line, he sent the sphere'
to the Minnesota 35 yard line, for a
net kick Of 65 yards. Whenever
Michigan was in danger, he booted his

ISSUE FIRST CALL FOR
PRACTICE BEGINS FOR VARSITY.
AND FIRST YEAR MEN THIS
Candidates for the varsity and
freshman swimming teams have been
called for by Coach Drulard. The first
practice will be held this afternoon
in the city Y. M. C. A. pool, the fresh-
men working out between 3 and 4
o'clock and the varsity taking the
pool from 4 till 5 o'clock. As this is
the first official practice of the season
every man who has signed up previ-
ously or who expects to try out for
either team is expected to be on
Cards to Be Issued
Those trying out will be required to
pay the usual 25 cent fee for swim-
ming candidates, but as soon as men
show that they are worthy to be con-
sidered as good material, they will be
issued cards which will allow them
the free use of the pool.:it is prob-
able that 20 cards will be givenrout
to freshmen and30 to varsity men.
The cards must be countersigned by
their holders, who will have to du-
plicate their signature on the charge
book each time they go in the pool in
order to avoid a repetition of last
year's difficulties over admission. .
,inasmuch as entries are to be made
in the city meet at the Detroit Ath-
letic club on. Dec. 4, it is necessary
that the men get into the best possi-
ble shape in the short time remain-
ing. Special consideraLion will be
given to new men who are eligible for
varsity honors in selecting Michigan's
representatives at the D. A. C.
Schedule Being Arranged
During January and February
meets are planned with M. A. C., the
Grand Rapids Y. M C A., Detroit Ju-
nior college, and the University of To-
ronto. There is also a possibility of
a dual meet with Oberlin, although
the latter institution has not been
heard from as yet.
WILL PICK LOWER STTE
TEAM FORTITLE GA9ME
STATE FOOTBALL HONORS TO BE
DECIDED ON FERRY FIELD
State scholastic football honors will
be decided on Ferry field next Satur-
day provided that the committee in
charge of the arrangements can come
to a final decision on the team that is
to represent the lower state schools.
Northwestern High of Detroit and
Muskegon Central are the. two insti-
tutions that lay claims to the high-
est honors in below-the-straits foot-
ball at present. Each team has come
through the season with a formidable
record, the Detroit school wound up
its regular schedule last Saturday by
defeating Detroit Northern before the
largest crowd that has ever witnessed
a prep school clash in Michigan.
Muskegon Claims Also Strong
Muskegon rooters point to their
team's record as tufficient proof that
it is the state's premier aggregation.
In every game this year the up-state
boys have displayed a world of power
and they have turned in a record of
victories impressive enough to sub-
stantiate the .claims they make.
Menominee, in the upper peninsu-
la, has come through the season with
a 1,000 per cent average. She has
met the cream of the northern elevens
and vanquished them in a manner that
leaves no question as to who will bear
the upper peninsula standard.
Opinion of Coaches Asked
Every effort is being made by the
committee which is :sponsoring the
event to determine whether Muskegon
or Northwestern is most entitled to
play here this week. Telegrams were
sent out yesterday to the most prom-
inent of the state high school football
mentors, inquiring which school has
in their estimation made the record
mosthworthy of an opportunity to play
for'the state championship,

by Ames, although Furnas of Purdue,
won the individual honors of the meet

time for a five mile course. Chute
