At Least 14 Letter ken Expected to
Don Togs Again Next
Of the twenty-one men who have
been awarded their Varsity M's, 14
have at least one more year of com-
petition and will form the nucleus
for next year's Varsity eleven. Six
of this number are Sophomores.
Captain-elect Herb Steger, "Red"
Miller, Vick, Rockwell, Grube, and
Herrnstein are the back field men
who will battle for positions on the
1924 eleven. All of these men have
had considerable experience this past
season and a star set of backs should
be molded from them. Steger is the
only one with two years of Varsity
competitl6ir but the others, especially
Miller, Vick and Rockwell, have been
used a great deal all season.
Backfield Promising .
With Miller at fullback, Steger and
Vick at the halves, and Rockwell at
quarter, lichigan will have a versa-
tile backfield. Rockwell is an ex-
ceptional punter and a speedy run--I
ner, Vick is an accurate passer and
'a fast man for the end-running game.
Miller can back up a line and is also
a consistent plunger while Steger can
'run, hit tne line, pass and kick.
Herrnstein is a good halfbatok but
light, while Grube can fit in at any
one of the backfield positions.
Bob Brown, who broke into the
limelight after Blott's injury ,t Mad-
ison, is a capable center who should
develop considerably in his next two
years of competition. Slaughter and
Steele will play their third year as
guards and should make the center 01
the line impr'egnabte. Havkins, who
played regularly after Steele's injury,.
is only a sophomore and has shown
signs of becoming a star linesman.
Whife will also be back for a line po-
Tackles Remain
Babcock and Kunow are the tackles
who will return next year. Both play-
ing their first year this season, these
lads gave much promise for the fu-
ture. Babcock became Varsity tackle
after VanDervoort's injury kept himl
on the side lines, starting the Wiscon-t
sin and Minnesota contests. He play-t
ed a fine defensive game in both bat-,
tles, and also proved to be a regular
'ball hound." He recovered two tumt
tles and a blocked kick in the finalc
gane with the Gophers and also re-1
covered a fumble in the Wisconsinl
gam'e. Kunow was &ut most of thec
season with a bad arm, but did well
in the games he played during the lat-
er part of the season.f
"lutch" Marion is the only Varsity
end who will playnet year. The oth-
er end will be taken care 'of by eithert
Palrier, Witherspoon or ape of the f
Freshmen. Palmer, Witherspoon and it
Ferenz are ends who received their

Coach BarkerI

As a reward for their efforts on the
footba field this season, numeral
sweaters have been awarded to 87 men
on- the Reserve and Freshman foot-
ball squads.
The men so honored have shown
ability in the fall sport, have been
regular in their attendance for daily
,practice, and have proved to the
coaches that they have been earnest
in their efforts to win places on the
respective teams. It is only when a
man measures up to all of these stan-
dards that he is allowed the right
to wear his class numerals. To those
who were not so fortunate as to win
this honor it can be said that not to
receive the coveted emblem is far
from being an indication of failure.
Many men who have not won numer-
als have gone out and by consistent
efforts have become Varsity men.
Coaches Satisfied
In commenting on their respective
squads both Coach Fisher of the Re-
serves and Coach Mather, the Fresh-
man mentor, expressed their satisfac-
tion in their outfits. This year Fisher
.had an average of more than 30 men
out for daily practice and the team
that was finally picked to represent
the Reserves on the gridiron this
year was one of the best that Fisher
has ever coached during the time that
he has been in charge of the Reserve
On Mather's crew this year was a
galaxy of stars such as has seldom
been seen on a Freshman team. The
backfield was composed of some of
the best prep men in the state and the
line, the heaviest tat has ever played
for Mather's teams, was a fit for-
ward wall for the ground gainers.
