Ferry Field, Nov. 3.-Displaying an attack that at times completely
pewildered the Purple, Michigan today downed Northwestern for its third
consecutive Conference victory of the season.
Although the Wolverines managed to win the game Thistlethwaite's men
kept up a great fight from the starting whistle. "Moon" Baker and Captain
-Weincke kept hammering' at the Michigan line and made Michigan do its best
throughout the game.
Michigan displayed a powerful attack, the most effective feature of which
Was variety. Passes, hard drives at the forward wall, and brilliant attempts
around end were used in winning the game.
More than 33,000 people had crowded into the stands by the time the
Michigan team came on the field, a record crowd for a Michigan-Northwestern
g;ridiron'contest. A cold wind swept the field throughout the game and made
the playing field hard and fast.
Captain Herb Steger was kept out of the Michigan lineup today, Herrn-

Columbus, Nov. 8.-Running a diffi
cult course and against a strong wind,
Michigan's harriers lost by a scant
margin to Ohio State in the triangu-
lar cross country meet this morning
at Columbus. Illinois was consider-
ably behind the Wolverines and the
Buckeyes in taking third place. The
complete score was Ohio, 29; Michi-
gan, 35; Illinois, 56.
Wikoff of Ohio captured first place
in the five mile run with the time of
25 minutes and 53 seconds, heading
the rest of the field with a large lead.
Callahan of Michigan lost a shoe at
the half mile mark and ran out the re-
maining four and a half miles to
place fourth in a field of 100 runners.
Callahan, Hornberger, and Briggs
of Michigan finished close together,
taking fourth, fifth and sixth places
am g them. Baker- of Michigan
placed ninth, while Reinke finished in
eleventh place.
After the meet, the visiting teams
were guests at a dinner given by
Ohio State, and also were guests at
the Ohio State-Iidiana fodtball game.
Plans are being made by the under-
class department of the Union to or-
ganize a freshman band to play at the
fall and the spring games this year.
A member of the Varsity band has
been secured to direct the rehearsals,
the first of which will be held at 7:15
o'clock next Tuesday in room 308 of
the Union.
The Varsity band has agreed to fur-
nish music for the band. All mem-
bers of the freshman class who can
play any Land instrument are urged
to report at the meeting Tuesday
with their instruments. As the fresh-
man.band has heretofore been unsuc-
cessful it is hoped that early practice
and organization will make the band
better this year.
