Sullivan has recommended a list of
men who have shown up especially
well in practice bouts, and many of
these will undoubtedly become mem-
bers of the club. There will be a
meeting of the members of the or-
ganization next week to determine the
men who will be admitted. Four men
on the last year's team have signified
their intentions of discontinuing box-
ing for the remainder of their stay in
the University and several more will
be unable to participate in boxing this
semester. However, the remaining
members of the club have already
started training for the tournament
which is to be held latein February.
Owing to the crowded condition of
the boxing room it has been decided
to hold the practice bouts in the
wrestling room and provide a room for
the wrestlers on the first floor. The
room that has been used as the boxing
room will be open to boxers who do
not wish instruction from Coach Sul-
livan. The change will be made im-
mediately upon completion of the
new wrestling quarters.

WASHINGTON RADJEFFERSON FAVORED1
INA16TTLE SATURDAY WITH DETROIT'

Neither Eleven Has Been
But Easterners Have
Stronger Teams

Defeated
Met

LAUR AND SONNENBERC ARE
STAR PLAYERS FOR U. OF D.
Two unbeaten elevens, one from the
East and the other from the middle
West, will meet in one of the biggest
local post-season games of the year at
Navin field on Saturday, when Wash-
ington and Jefferson's claimants for
the Eastern title meet the strong Un-
iversity of Detroit aggregatibn.
Deroit in Final Drill
Coach Duffy, of the U. of D., sent
his men through their final stiff prep-
aration for the event yesterday after-
noon and was well pleased with the
prospects of putting up a winning fight

when he sends the wearers of the Red
against the Washingtonians.
Should Detroit succeed in downing
the Easterners the last doubt as to the
power of her eleven will be removed.
It is extremely difficult to make any
predictions relative to the outcome. It
is possible to draw conclusions from
comparative scores only in one in-
stance, and from this one case itf
would seem that the two teams are
evenly matched.
Odds Favor W. and J.
Detroit, therefore, is at a disadvant-
age. Throughout its season to date
Coach Duffy's men have met but one
school which has given them a hard
battle, and that institution was Tulane,
which has been defeated by other elev-
ens from the South. It will, as a re-
sult, be a hard proposition for the De-

troiters' to face an aggregation which
will give them any sort of real com-
petition. The Presidents have defeat-
ed some of the best teams in the East,
including in their long string of vic-
tories a memorable 7 to 0 triumph
over the flashy University of Pitts-
burg team. Dope, therefore, favors
Coach Neale and his cohorts from
Washington and Jefferson.
The big city collegians will rely
largely upon the kicking abilities of
"Gus" Sonnenberg to keep the ball out
of their territory. The "Big Bertha"
of the Detroiters has been hoisting
the ovalrdowntthe field steadily for a
distance ofs60 or more yards, and one
healthy push from his toe is expected
to send the pigskin far out of danger
should the Presidents keep the play
hovering around the Detroit goal
posts.
Lauer and Sonnenberg Versatile
Exponents of the "triple threat,"
kick, run, or pass, have been much in
demand in all big games this year, and
Detroit is fortunate in having two re-
liable men who may put this power
into splendid, execution, Sonnenberg
and "Dutch" Lauer. The latter is one
of the most versatile men on the entire
Catholic eleven, an accurate passer, a
fair kicker, and a wonder on slip-
ping through opposing defense for long
gains. The team, as a whole, is in
the best of physical condition, and is
+ready to put up the gamest sort of a
fight against the. powerful Easterners.
In many quarters it is a foregone
conclusion that Washington and Jef-1
ferson should win easily. There will,
in all probability, be nothing easy.
about it. True, dope favors the Presi-
dents, but dote, at its best, is unre-
liable, and with the fighting power for
which Detroit is famous she may be
able to overcome the admitted super-
iority of the Easterners, and prove, in-
stead, that the wearers of the Red and
White make up the better aggregation.
It is doubtful, in any case, if the game9
is definitely decided before the blow-
ing of the final whistle.

iits of Sport

Iowa received an informal invitation
to be the opponent of California in
the New Year's day games. Iowa is
the first choice in the West for the
contest but whether the game will be
played, depends upon the decision of
the Western Conference officials.
Yale's eleven will be captained next
season by Ralph Jordan, of Bangor,
Me., regular fullback on this year's
eleven.
Coach John R. Richards, director of
football at the University of Wiscon-
sin, will again coach the Badger team
next year. Reports that he was going
to resign are utterly unfounded.
Centre college will struggle with a
Western team on the football field at
San Diego, Calif. late in December.
Their opponent will likely be Leland
Stanford university, University of
Southern California, or Washington
State.
Milton Romney, star quarterback of
the University of Chicago fotball team,
was elected captain of 1922 eleven to-
day.
Winter football practice got under
way at the University of Pennsylvania
yesterday. One hunderd and twenty-
five men reported for the first practice
but rain caused a postponement. The
innovation is the result of Pennlyl-
vania's season of gridiron defeats.
The ranking committee of the United
States lawn tennis committee held its
formal session yesterday to deliberate
over the choice of the 10 highest
ranking lawn tennis players for 1921.
The Ann Arbor railroad ran a spec-
ial train between their station and
the athletic grounds for a ten cent fare
during the baseball season of 1892.
