In Ills 19th Year as a Major Leaguer
Ile Wou Twenty-Seien Ganes
Lost Eight
Last winter Johnson was through,
his journey at an end-so many of
the experts ruled. He went to the
Pacilic Coast and attempted to buy a
baseball club of his own, but failed,
and he returned to the only major
league baseball team he has known-
the Senators. Then it was that the
writers of sport saw the end which
has not come, for Johnson, veteran of
19 baseball seasons, again has been
a great factor in determining the
league title.
"They had me all through," lie said
1 at Philadelphia after winning one of
the Labor day games recently, which,
meant much to Washington hopes,
"but there seems to be something
left." He is 38 years old.
Johnson faced the New York Giants
thrice in the World's series of 1924
and twice they battered him down,
but at the end, throwing his arm with
every pitch, the "Big Swede" gain-
ed full steam and hurtled through
four innings of that last great 12-in-
ning struggle in the National capital.
to a remarkable victory.
Two hundred pounds of brawn well
distributd throughout his six feet
have given Johnson a power of mound
delivery that few menhave equalled
and surely there is none to deny his
claim to a brilliant record of sus-
tained achievement. Last season, his
19th with Washington, he won 27
games and lost 8, winning 13 in suc-
cession. On Aug. 25 he held the St.
Louis Drowns hitless for seven in-
nings, when the contest ended.
In 18 seasons he had 3,216 strike-
outs and 109 shutout victories. Chris-
ty Mathewson stands second in the
matter of scoreless games, with 83
over a period of 17 years and Grover
Alexander has 77. Denton T. (Old Cy)
Young had only 73 shutouts in his 21
years on the mound, and Babe Adams
of Pittsburgh in a long career has
been able to register no more than 45.
Johnson entered professional base-
ball with Tacoma of the Northwestern
league in 1906 and in the same year
appeared with the Weiser, Idaho,
semi-pro club. He started with Weis-
er again the following year but soon
found himself with Washington, never
again to shift allegiance. He is ex-
pected to pitch the first contest
against the Pirates at Forbes.ield,
Pittsburgh, Oct. 7.
Reserved seat tickets for the In-
diana-Michigan football game to be
played on Ferry field Saturday will
be placed on sale at the athletic of-
flees in the administration building
Tuesday morning.

That complexities of schedule mak-
ing burdened football coaches in thec
early clays of tHie gridirqn sport justt
as it does today can l1 eVid('ncedl by
a short analysis of the ]\Iichigan
schedules listed in old football rec-
The authorities ventured only one
game in 1878, the date o. Mi0higan's
first organized eleven, but upon win-
ning that contest from Racine, by a
7-2 score, they promptly and ifearless-
ly scheduled two games for the fol-
lowing year.
I HIlowever tii team (lid not fare quite
so well in its secend year, tying Tor-.
onto, 0-0, and winning from Racine
by forfeit. In 18) Racie was drop-
ped from the schedule because of hera
failure to show iu1) the year before and
the Varsity easily disposed of TorontoI
13-0. r I
This gave Michigan an enviable rec-
ord, three victories, one tie, and no. de-a
feats in three years of eompetition.,
The schedule for 1331 was composed
of three teams, notably Ilarvard, Yale,f
and Princeton. Michigan dropped the
first contest, 4-0 to] l arvard after af
desperate battle, bowed to Yale, 11-0,
*nd threatened Princeton but had to
be content with a 13-4 defeat. TheE
Michigan record now read, three vic-
tories, one tie, three defeats.
1883 they again lost to Yale and
Jarvard, but exerted their wrath upon
the Stevens institution, defeating
e.thcm, 5-1. The 46-0 walloping which
IYale gave us that yeair nearly wrote
the final chapter in MichigUui football,
I at least for intersectional gaines, and
the following year contented our-
.selves with (ef eati g Albion 18-0, and
the Chicago university chili, 18-10.

From then on football was on an
established basis and the number 'of
teams on the Wolverine schedule
jumped from one in 1878 to 12 in
1892. Needless to say these were not
all college teams. Michigan's chief
opponents during the early period
were Albion, the D. A. C., the Michigan
Athletic association, the Grand Rapids'
A. C., Cleveland A. A., Michigan Mil-
itary academy, Ferris institute, Lake
Forest, the Windsor Boat club, and
the Western Reserve.
A few games were carded with out-
side teams such as the Carlyle Indi-
ans, Adelbert, Oberlin, and Notre
Dame during their period, while many
of the members of what is now the
I ig Ten began their maiden efforts
upon the field of glory. Tight games
were not unheard of but high scores
held the center of interest. The high-
est score recorded by a Michigan team
was in 1904, when the defeated West
Virginia 130-0, while in 1901 they de-
feated Buffalo 128-0.
In 1901 Coach Yost took charge of'
I the team and things began to bright'-
en. In that year Michigan piled cep
560 points to their opponents none,
j and the following year, 546 counters
to 12 for the opposition, with 565
points in 1903 as the high water mark
of this period. These were the days
of the Yost "point-a-minute" teams.
Walter Eckersall, one of the coun-
try's greatest sports writer, was a
I star athleteat the University ofaChi-
cago in his undergraduate days. He
competed in track and football, and
was fast enough on the cinder track
to make the 1906 Olymin~c team.-


In Groffe, captain-elect for this sea-
son, Zartman, Chew, Kurtz, and Sulli-l
van, veterans, Coach May has a
strong nucleus about which to build
this year's aggregation. These men
showed well in the Michigan State'
meet, held at Detroit last year, where
they had to contend against many ex-
cellent tumblers. Included in the
competition were such men as the ex-
champion of Germany, and a few
other foreigners.
As yet it is too early to decide
how the team will be divided. Zart-
man and Hansen, a freshman, appear
to be best on the mats, the former;
also being adept on the bars.
In all probability Capt. Groffe and
Hil, another freshman, will handle
the work on the parallel bars, while
Sullivan and Anderson will work on
the horizontal bars. The exercises
on the side horse will be left to Kurtz,
who performed well on the job last
The main work has consisted of

drill in gymnastics. There is still
time for new men to start at the be-
ginning and keep with the team. The
objective of the squad is the State
meet to be held in Detroit.
The new stadium of the University
of Pittsburgh which was dedicated
last Saturday, has a seating capacity
of 70,000 and is rated among the finest
in the country.
Charles Bachman, former Notre
Dame athlete, is now director of ath-
letics at the Kansas agricultural col-
11 AVANA, Oct. 3.- Jose Cuxart y
Falgones, a native of Spain, under ar-
rest on the charge of plotting the as-
sassination of President Machado, has
been ordered deported.

Candidates for interfraternity and
all-campus cross-country must sign
up for training tomorrow at Water-,
man gymnasium to be entered in the
races. There will be a man in Train-
er Ted Sullivan's room to take the
names of candidates and arrange for
training schedules between 3 and 5
"All candidates will be rigidly held
to the training schedule," said Ted
Sullivan, who will have charge of
conditioning the men. "We will keep
careful record of the time spent in
training by each man, and anyone
who fails to run in practice at least
three times a week will be barred
from competition."
Owing to the small number of root-
ers accompanying the Hoosier team,
there are still plenty of seats avail-
There are a few box seats for the
Ohio State and Navy games on sale,
while stand seats can still be pur-
chased for the Minnesota game.
