Yost, Little, Steger. And
Cavanaugh Speak
Last honors were paid to the 1924
Varsity football squad as a unit last
night at the banquet held in their
honor in the main assembly hall of
the Union. Seated at a large table in
the shape of an "M" members of the
squad met for the last time as a body.
Thomas Cavanaugh, '27L, president
of the Union made the address of wel-
come to the team and to the more than
500 students gathered -at the banquet
on behalf of the Union which is to
take over the annual football banquet
and hold it after the season closes
each year. Robert Wilson, '25, chair-
man of the committee in charge of the
banquet then introduced Shirley W.
Smith, secretary of the University,
who was toastmaster of the evening.
Coach Yost was , the next speaker
and he said, "the Conference is the
greatest college athletic association in
America." Speaking of the things that
go to make a good football team he
named three main things, the plant,
the staff of coaches and the personnel
of the team. "These are the things
which determine how far we can go
through," he said.
Lauds Team
Coach George Little spoke next on
"the team that came back," telling
the story of Michigan's early season
defeat and her strong comeback and
bid for the conference championship.
Professor Ralph W. Aigler of the Law
school was the next speaker. The
text of his speech was justification
of present day athletics in regard to
the danger of its becoming commer
cialized. He said the sportsmanship
it teaches the public is Justification
enough for the huge crowds which
the game dtraws.
Captain Herbert Steger then gave
his appreciation to the members of
the team for the support they had
given him throughout the season and
the loyalty they showed in defeat. He
then introduced Robert J. Brown, '26,
who was chosen captain of the 1925
team at a meeting of members of the
team this noon.
