We note that a chap named Down-
em plays tackle on a small college
eleven in Texas. We cannot but won-
der if he does.
Those of us who read the Chicago
Tribune on Saturday morning are
busy delving into the depths of our
memory, and giving it up as a bad job.
The cause of it all is a picture of
"Issy" Isabel of Ohio State which ap-
peared with a statement that in the
game with Michigan he punted the
oval a distace of 82 yards against
the wind. We are forced to grant that
Isabel outkicked Steketee on that
occasion, but there must have been
some 45,000 persons sound asleep at
the moment of the Ohioan's remarka-
ble .kick - for it is doubtful if any
can recall it.
Needless to say, Williams has not
seen the Michigan team in action, yet
he might well hearken to the words
of the Daily Illini, which infers that
Michigan has twice as good a team as
"Doc" Williams, Minnesota coach,
remarked after the gridiron battle
with Wisconsin, in which the Goph-_
ers were given the worst beating in
20 years, that the Badgers had the
best team he could recall in all his
long .career. He further states that
"it is no disgrace for any teamtto lose
to the mighty machine which Coach
John Richards has developed."
The class of '99 played the high
school a football game to establish the
interclass championship. This hap-
pened In 1892.
Circumstances Surrounding Famous
Contest of 1905 Strangley
GAME PROMISES TO SHOW
COMPETITION IN BACKFIELDSI
Sixteen years ago today Coach Field-
ing H. Yost and the Michigan football
team were on their return trip from
Urbana after a victory over Illinois
university. Coach Fielding H. Yost
wore a worried look. He was wor-
ried over the outcome of a football
game to be played Nov. 19 with the
powerful Wisconsin team. Wisconsin
had vanquished the Gophers, Michigan
had won from Illinois, the two teams
were to clash in the greatest game
Western football had everwitnessed.
The game was scheduled at Ann Ar-
bor. One week before the contest
Coach Yost said, "When you come to>
think that Wisconsin. has in Remb,
Bush, Bertke, Donovan, Findley and
Vanderboom six men playing their
fourth year and that every one is a
star in his position a man ought to
consider what Michigan is up against."
Today, after 16 years, Coach Yost
Johnnie Garrells and Bush, ends on
the Michigan and Wisconsin teams
kept up a kicking duel throughout the
game in which their was little advant-
age either way.
After 16 years of absence from Mich-
igan's football schedule Wisconsin has
returned. Yost again -instructs the
Maize and Blue while Richards is
coach of the Cardinal.
Has Michigan a future world's
champion swimmer within her walls?
That is the question one feels im-
pelled to ask after a mere cursory
glance at the splendid aquatic record
of Jack L. Gow, '25, of Duluth, Minn.
Gow is a pupil of Coach Hiatt Mann
of the Detroit Athletic club, who has
developed many a star swimmer.
Coach Mann, at the time of his dis-
covery of Gow, was aquatic tutor at
the Duluth Boat club.
The freshman star began swimming
the crawl stroke in 1917. In :
was a member of the Duluth t
high school relay team which m
national title at Chicago. Sir
first workouts he developed wi
prising rapidity until, last spr
broke the national interscl
record for the 40 yard free
event, going the distance in 19
onds. During the summer h
part in the C. A. A. U. 50 and 1C
events, finishing third in bol

This is so good you 'will be happy when you buy your tickets
and Michigan are in almost the same
position. Michigan is fresh from its
wfn over Illinois and Wisconsin jubil-
ant over its triumph over the Gophers.
The setting of the game alone is dif-
ferent. Instead of Ann Arbor, Madi-
son will be the scene of the first grid-
iron meeting of the Wolverines and
the Badgers since 1905. As in 1905
Wisconsinhas, in Elliott,AWilliams,
Sundt, Gould, Bunge and Brumm, six
veterans every one of them a star in
his position and "a man ought to con-
sider what Michigan is up against."
In 1905 Coach Yost has Garrells and
H. Hammond on ends, "Germany"
Schultz on center, Norcross, Weeks,
Tom Hammond and Longman in the
backfield. Today Yost has Kirk and
Goebel on the flanks, "Ernie" Vick
on center, Cappdn, Roby, Kipke, Stek-
etee and Uteritz for his backfield. Re-
gardless of the outcome of the game
next Saturday at Madison' two bril-
liant backfields will vie for honors as
they did on Ferry field, Nov. 19, 1905.
Though Wisconsin did not score
against Yost's men in their last meet-
ing there were instances during the
contest when no Michigan man would
have wagered against the Badgers
crossing the goal line. Twice Findley,
hero of the Wisconsin backfield, got
loose and was on his way when the
last possible chance to bring him
down was availed of. Melzner, Badger
quarterback, just missed his try for a
drop kick from the 45 yard line while
his dashes after catching punts were
electrifying. Michigan scored in the
opening half when Tom Hammond
tried for a goal from the 40 yard line
and the kick fell short. Wisconsin
fumbled, and Shorty Longman recov-
ered for a touchdown. Again in the
second half Longman, playing full-
back, crossed the Badger line after
drives by Curtis and Longmanhad
carried the oval to striking distance.
