UCM E-BACK" AIM
OF GRIDIRON COACH
(Continued from Page One)
Frank Steketee, All-American full-
back in 1918 is first choice for full-
back. Stek is in fine shape this fall
and should have another great year.
He is showing the old form in booting!
the pigskin which proved such a great
help to his team two years ago. Pa-
per, of last year's freshman aggrega-
tion, appears to have second call on
the fullback job, although Yost may
shift Cohn to ths position if neces-
sary.
Goetz and Wieman Tackles
Captain Goetz is holding down his
old position at left tackle ar.d he has
as his running mate no other than
Tad Wieman, captain-elect in 1918,
star fullback in 1917 and tackle in
1916. These two men form the back-
bone of the line and should be a hard
pair to beat. Both men are sure
blockers and deadly tacklers, while in.
past years they have been particu-
larly free from injuries. Gilmore and
Avery appear to be the best under-
studies for these two sterling linemen.
Ernie Vick has just returned to school
and yesterday was the first day he
has been in uniform. It is expected,
however, that the big lad will be in
shape soon, ready to hold down the
center of the line again. Johns, for-
merly of M. A. C., is making a strong
bid for Ernie's old position, while the
work of Kullman, Planck, and Petro
is being watched with interest.
The guards are not yet settled al-
though DukeDunne and Gob Wilson
appear to have first call. Yost de-
cided to shift Duke to guard about a
week ago and has kept him working
there ever since. Wilson is a trifle
light for the position but he has
enough fight to make up for this de-
ficiency. Wachter and Van Orden,
both members of last year's yearling
team, are also showing up well at
guard.
Goebel Vertain End Choice
Goebel, star end of the freshman
eleven last season, is practically cer-
tain of one ofthe endjobs, butto
date no one seems to have cinched
the other flank. Those who saw the
scrimmages between the Varsity and
the freshmen last fall will remember
the sureness of Goebel's tackling and
blocking as well as his almost phe-
nomenal ability at catching forward
passes. Richards, the man who did
such good work as fullback on the
dent team last fall, is trying out for
an end job. Rowland is another man
who may develop into a first-class
end, while Cappon, Wedthoff, and
Karpus will all .bear watching.
With but four days of practice left
before the season's opener with Case,
Yost will have to work fast in order
to have a team whipped into shape.
The competition for many of the po-
sitions has been keen with the result
that the coach has had to try all sorts
of combinations. Although a better
team will undoubtedly be turned out
in the end because of this, there is no
doubt that it retards the acquisition
of team work early in the season.
SOCCER NOTICEf
All students wishing to try
out for the informal Varsity soc-
cer team must report at 4
o'clock Wednesday on the south
end of Ferry field.

FRESH FOOTBALL NOTICE
Coach Mather, freshman foot-
ball coach, has issued a call for
all first year gridiron men. Can-
didates for the freshman squad
can enroll with Coach Mather
at the Varsity club house on
Ferry Field. Practices will be
gin immediately. Full equipment
will be furnished to all can-
didates.
COACHING FORCE
BIGGER THIS FALL
Eight competent coaches and suffici-
ent equipment to care for all football
candidates insure the University
against a repetition of last year's de-
bacle, when incapable assistants and
lack of supplies were ascribed as, rea-
sons for Michigan's disastrous grid-
iron season.
Assisting Coach Yost are seven
mentors with reputations as good
ooaches. Prentis Douglass, who did so
much for the 1917 Wolevrine team, is
back as assistant to Yost. From
Brown comes Archie Hahn, '04, who
will act as trainer and assistant track
coach. Not only does this former
sprinter know the Eastern style of
play to perfection, but one summer at
Illinois, Zuppke unfolded his style of
attack, which should aid in solving the
Illinois plays.
To mould a forward wall which will
prove impregnable, Yost has for as-
sistants Bob Watson, Joe Maddock and
Edmonds, the last two being volun-
teers. Sturzenegger h.as been engaged
to train the flankers. For the reserves
Froemke is at present acting as coach,
but Derril Pratt, recently chosen base-
ball mentor, will soon succeed him.
Coach Mather will drill the freshman
team in plays of the opponents, which
the Varsity will attempt to solve.
Shoes, jerseys, pants, and other
equipment have come in by the doz-
ens, and it is expected that there will
be more than enough on hand to care
for all who turn out for football. In
this way the Athletic association ex-
pects to build up a permanent stock
room, ordering just enough each year
to replenish the worn out articles of
the previous year.
Added to the old equipment, which
was sufficient to care for 100 men,
there is enough to care for 350. One
hundred and fifty pairs of shoes, 350
pants, thirty dozen jerseys, ten dozen
head gears, six dozen shoulder pads,
and two gross of belts are among the
other things that the Athletic asso-
ciation has secured.
USHERS WANTED F0.1ILLINOIS
AND CHICAGO GAES
The Athletic Association will pay a
fee of $1.00 for each game to Ulniver-
sity Students, providing they are able
to report at Ferry Field at 4:00 p m.
Friday, the day previous to the game
and at 12:00 Noon on the day of the
game.
Applicants for ushering appoint-
ments call immediately at the Athlet-
ic offices, Ann Arbor Press Building,

name, class and address on reverse

PRATT TO BE NEW

Football Team Into
Shape
LOSS OF CARL LUNDIIGREN TO
ILLINOIS DEEPLY REGRETTED
With the announcement that Der-
rill Pratt, famous second baseman of
the New York Yankees, is to become
the next Varsity baseball coach, there
is again a bright side to the outlook
of future diamond teams. The resig-
nation of Carl Lundgren, who left to
coach Illinois, cast a dark cloud over
the baseball situation and chances for
a repetition of former successes look-
ed decidedly dark. Now that the Yan-
kee star is to assume the responsi-
bilities of mentor, this cloud has been
lifted.
Five Years in Big Leagues
Coach Pratt is a graduate of the
University of Alabama where his foot-
ball ability attracted more attention
than his ball tossing. After leaving
college, he made baseball his major
sport and soon had i berth in the
big leagues. His five years of experi-
ence in the major cirfUfts began with
the St. Louis Americans from which
club he went to the Yankees. Pratt
is 33 years old and has the fire of a
good coach. He will arrive in Ann
Arbor this week to aid Coach Yost
and his assistants in the grooming of
the football squad.
The loss of Carl Lundgren is re-
gretted by everyone. Loyalty to his
alma mater was the - reason for his
departure as it is understood that he

Stores.-Adv.

is to receive less pecuniary reward at
Urbana than he did here. Lundgren
came to Michigan in 191.4 and in the
years he was in charge made a most
enviable record for the University
and himself. rhree times under his
leadership the conference champion-
ship has been Michigan's and last year
by virtue of her victories over Cali-
fornia, the Wolverines are the logical
claimants to the national intercolle-
giate title. In Lundgren's first year
as coach, Michigan was also acclaim-
ed national champion. It was this
team that George Sisler, the great
American League slugger, captained.
Rivalry Increased
The departure of Lundgren to Illi-
nois will only serve to stimulate the
great rivalry existing between the
Wolverines , and the Indians. The
Michigan-Illinois ball games of com-
ing seasons will be fought with keen-
er interest than before. The ability
of Michigan's new coach will be
matched with that of her former
mentor.
