two lines, one approaching each out-
side pole. Coming upon the fresh-
men they then can join forces and
attack any pole they desire first or
attempt them all at a time, according

to their plan of attack.
The sophomores will be given two
15 minute periods in which to cap-
ture the three flags. A ten minute
rest will be given between the two
periods. Captured flags must immedi-
ately be turned over to the referee.

_Muirhead Will Play Last Game This
Afternoon; Minnesota in Best
Can a team composed of five regular
members and six men who have been
substitutes for most of the season sue-
cessfully keep clean its record of
straight victories against an opponent
which is in the pink of condition and.
without a defeat chalked up against It?
This question will be answered this
afternoon when the Wolverines, crip-
pled by the loss of many of their most
valued players, face Minnesota, the
team from the North which has yet to
taste defeat in any of its games this
A Champfonship Struggle
The game today means much to both
teams. Michigan, having never lost a
game since the Ohio State contest of
1921, is anxious to complete another
season as champions of the Confer-
ence. The Gophers after having weak
teams for several years now have an
aggregation which ranks high in the
Big Ten and if Minnesota is to keep
this high rating she must come
through the game on the top end of
the score. With both teams still un-
defeated one of them is sure to be out
of consideration for this season's title,
after today,
Coach Yost's men who started out
their schedule with what were the
makings of as powerful a team as any
in West have been weakened greatly
in the last month from injuiens, in-
jures which have taken six of the
regular team from competition and
forced them to watch their teammates
from the sidelines.
Yostmen Crippled
The Gophers were rather Slow in
hitting their Best stride and this coup-
led with injuriesearly in the season
forced them to accept a tie score with
the Badgers in their opening game of
the year. The Gophers, however, are
now playing wonderful football and
last week handed} Iowa, whm. the;
Wolverines defeated 9-, a terrible
lacing to the tune of 20-., Minnesota
scored three times against a defense
which the Wolverines were able to
solve upon only a single occasion.
Michigan goes into this game more
sadly crippled than any Wolverine
team in recent years. ' The Yostmen
eleven today will be but a remnant.
of what the eleven was five or six
weeks ago. In-the backfield Captain
Kipke and Steger are the only remain-
ing members of the earlier aggrega-
tion while on the line are Stan Muir-
head at tackle, Ed Slaughter at guard
and "Loue" Curran at right end.
Muirhead to Play
The rest of the team will be compos-
ed of men who comparatively until the
last few days have been second string
men but upon whom falls the task of
keeping the Varsity in the small list of
undefeated college elevens. On the line
will be Roy Neisch playing left end in'
place of Marion, who has been com-
pelled to remain on the sidelines be-
cause of an injured arm. Nesch is a
letter man of last year and has been
in most of the games for a short period
at least during the last two years. At
left tackle and left guard is the great-
est strength of the Michigan forward
wall. The former position will be
superbly handled by the Veteran Stan

Muirhead. Stan, who has taken time
out in only one Conference game dur-
ing his three years onthe squad, is
hack in his old time form after injuries
had handicapped him for several games
and can be counted upon to play the
game of his career this afteronon. This
will be Muirhead's last game and he
wants to have the honor of playing on
a team which has defeated Minnesota
