Contest In 1907

Representing 11 different schools,
66 harriers will be at the mark this!
morning at Ferry field for the start
of the annual Conference cross'coun-
try race, to determine the team and
individual champions.
The men will set out promptly at
11 o'clock from the old intramural
clubhouse on Ferry field. The finish
line will be strung up at the end of
the ITniversity golf course on South
State street. The regular Varsityl
course is now in fairly good shape and
the predicted upsets should not bel
very prevalent.
The Wolverines will be represented
by a captainless team in this classic,l
due td the fact that Callahan will notj
be able to compete. Coach Farrell
has announced his team to be com-
posed, of Hornberger, Briggs, Reinke,
Baker, Jung and either Iskenderian or
Trh9its, pending ° the condition of the
course. The time for the race will
l1ot be fast as a result of the soggy
condition, the winner being expectedl
to finish in about 27 minutes.
There will be six men entered from
each school, with many of the coaches
postponing their final choices till an
observance of the weather conditions
is'made prior to the firing of the start-
ing gui. The oflicial Conference com-
mittee will be in charge of the race,
arriving this morning. Due to the
withdrawal of both the Chicago and
Purdue hill and dale men, the com-
mittee will be composed of eight men.

Quarter Century
Of Service Ends
For Yost Toda
When Michigan leaves the field
here this afternoon, Fielding H. Yost
will have completed 25 years as coach
of Michigan football teams.
In his 25 years as football coach
Coach Yost has achieved one of the
'most marvelous records in the annals
of the sport, his teams losing but15
per cent of their games during that
stretch of years. Coach Yost also pos-
sesses -the enviable record of having
- -
Fielding H. Yost1
produced more all-American football
players than any other coach in the
land, his total being 13.
Yost achieved instant fame as a
coach -when his teams went the sea-
sons of 1901, 1902, 1903, and 1904 be-
fore encountering a setback, which
came in the final game of the 1905
season, Chicago defating the Wolver-
ines 2-0, after the Yostmen had won
12 straight games that season.

Stagg field. The Maroons will be han-
dicapped by the loss of five men who{
were declared ineligible at the mid-
quarter examinations.
Indiana Memorial stadium will be
dedicated with the annual clash be-
tween Indiana and Purdue. Either
team can make a successful season
out of a season of defeats by winning
this traditional game.
At South Bend, Notre Dame will en-
gage Northwestern, who since their
victory over Michigan have been re-
garded as a powerful team. A win
for the Irish would give them a claim
to the mythical western title. The
"Wildcats" will be at full strength,
with the phenomenal "Moon" Baker
in the backfield.
The University of Iowa will travell
to the Pacific coast to engage the
University of Southernt.California in
a grid game. Injuries to the Trojan
stars have clouded the hopes of the
coast team for a victory over the
cently with the soccer team that is
leading the Eastern Intercollegiate
league. The team already has beaten
Harvard and Yale.

Thus far little attention has been
given to the good men on the tryout
roster, but the coach is devoting his
efforts to weeding out the poor play-
The first cut of the season will
come Monday when 20 cagers will be
eliminated from the group. Follow-
ing this there will be a regular small
weekly cut from now until Christmas
As yet the coach has not yet de-
cided on keeping any definite number
throughout the season. However, the
size of the squad will vary from 15
to 25 depending upon the calibre and
class of the material.
It is expected that a few good men
will put intheir appearance within
the next week. This group includes
those who have been busied with
freshman football and other yearling
athletics. -
The team is to continue working
out regularly at Waterman gymnas-
ium the first four nights of each
week. It is probable that the main
court at Yost field house will be used
starting just before Christmas time.
Coach Fisher has as his assistants
Jack Blott, and Harry Kipke.

familiar with the layout. Michigan's
squad concluded their practice Thurs-
day in the form of a short and easy
workout in the environs of the field
house. After the race the competing
harriers will be the guests of the Blue
Key club at a luncheon to be given
at the Michigan Union. Following this

Marquette, Michigan State college and!
Notre Dame. Michigan State has al-
ready been defeated this season in a
dual meet with Coach Farrell's ag-
gregation. Marquette's team is known
to be weak, although they boast the
likely individual champion in Schimik,
who ran second to Phelps of Iowa
last year. Notre Dame has not
achieved any noteworthy victories in
harrier meets this season.
The Wisconsin team, composed of
Chapman, Elleson, Kubley, Reeves,
Zola and McKee, should find little
trouble in duplicating last year's win
in today's run. They -have an excep-
tionally powerful team and have not
been defeated in a dual meet this fall.
Among their victims were the Michi-
gan and Iowa squads, two of the most
formidable in the Conference.
Ohio, Michigan, Iowa and Minnesota,
stand next in the ratings, with Minne-
sota a shade behind the first three,
who are conceded to be almost of
equally strong calibre. Ohio defeated!
Michigan in the triangular meet, but
it is anticipated that the Wolverines
have overcome this advantage. Iowa
lost to Wisconsin, but has a strong
team, and Minnesota is not far be-
hind the Hawkeyes in strength.
Hornberger and Briggs are two men
who 'have a good chance of copping
the individual honors. Hornberger,
especially has turned in some fine
performances this fall. Captain White

injury he suffered in the Iowa meet,;
