In spite of her defeat at the hands
of Northwestern last Saturday, Michi-
gan still holds the lead in the West-
ern Conference standing, having won
three games and lost but one.-
Several sport writers have placed
the Maize and Blue team second in
the standing, with Minnesota at the
lead,; but this is not so, since the
Gophers have played but one Con-
forence game and tied that. In this
case they have a percentage of zero
as tie games are not figured in com-
puting the percentage of a team, and
are therefore at the bottom of the
Should Michigan win the remaining
games on her schedule, she will be
undisputed champion of the Big Ten
with five games won and but one lost,
giving the Yostmen a percentage of
.834 for the season. If Iowa also wins
the remaining games on her schedule'
she will stand second, having won
four games and lost one, or a per-
centage of .800.
Coach Yost gave the Varsity squad
a light workout yesterday afternoon
on Ferry field. Since the field was
in a soggy condition punting,' passing
and blocking featured the practice.
Fred Fuller got off some fine place
kicks from the 30 and 35 yard lines
and it looks as though Coach Yost will
attempt this method of scoring against
Ohio State Saturday. Fuller's kicks
were high and cleared the goal with
yards to spare.
All the men on the squad were in
good shape after the Northwestern
game and are all in condition for the
battle with the Buckeyes Saturday.-
The ends and backs were making
some pretty catches of passes in prac-
tice yesterday, spearing them at full
speed and pulling them down from the
air with one hand.
4pfter completing their practice out- '
doors, part of the squad was ordered
in the field house by the coaches and
had asnappy signal practiceuindoors.
The remainder of the squ.:n
through formations outdoors.

TIEI: FOR GRID TITLE1
Though beaten by Albion last Sat-
urday Alma College can tie for the
M. I. A. A. football championship by
defeating Michigan State Normal col
lege, the pacemaker, Saturday.
Alma has a slight advantage in
Saturday's game in that it will be
played at Alma.
Should Alma win Saturday and win
its final game of the season with
Hillsdale, it can go into, a triple tie
with the Normals and Albion provid-
ing the latter also win their remain-
ing games. Ypsi closes the season
with Kalamazoo college and must win
