Louis Cilbert, perhaps the most
widely known halfback in the Middle
West after his absence from the Wol-
verine lineup against Illinois, ie-
turned to the team yesterday after-
noon and went through a long work-
out, devoting his attention mainly to
punting. He is in the best of shape
and ready to step onto the field
against Chicago now.
With Harry Kipke as his kicking
partner Gilbert punted from midfield

Although early season predictions


out of bounds off or iiside of the 10
yard line time after time. Most of the
place kicking was taken care of by
Palmeroli and Fuller,
Baer Rack in Shape.
"Dynamite Joe" Gembis reported
for practice in sweat clothes hut was
not allowed to do any strenuous work.
It is as yet uncertain whether he will
be in shape for Saturday but he will
make the trip. Aside from Gembis
the entire squad i in excellent condi-
tion. The batter d but sturdy vet-
eran, Ray Baer, is in shape and plan-
ning to do big things against Chicago
to assert his rights to consideration
for mythical honorg.
Since it will be the final out of town
game of the season Coach Tad Wie-
man announced yesterday that the en-
tire squad of 38 men will make the
trip to the Midway. Of this number
16 Wolverines are making their last
out of town journey. Those included
on this list are Hoffman, Domhoff,
Gilbert, Babcock, Miller, Puckelwartz,
Baer, Gabel, Harrigan,, Grinnell,
Palmeroli, Heston, Fuller, Sullo,
Nicholson, and Captain Oosterbaan.
Maroons Have Varied Offense.
For the first time in years the Wol-
verines will not leave -Ann Arbor
Thursday night for an out of town
football game. Departing from their
usual custom they will not depart un-
til 5 o'clock tomorrow afternoon
when the Michigan Central Twilight
Limited will pick up the squad. By
this plan it is thought that the men
will get better and be less nerv-
ous. Upon arrival in Chicago at 10
o'clock tomorrow night, the Wolver-
ines will go directly to their quarters
at the South Shore country club'
getting their first practice on Stagg
field immediately before the game.
Defense was stressed again yester-
day afternoon 'with Coach Court-
wright a'nd his Physical Eds playing
the role of Maroons. And it appears
as if the Wolverines might well afford
to prepare for the Maroon attack. For
the first time in some years Amos
Alonzo Stagg has put a team on the
field with a really varied offensive.
The Maroon plays are tricky and in-
clude not a few passes.
Mendenhall, is reputed to be one of
the most dangerous halfbacks in the
West, beip a general triple threat.
He can pass and kick as well as'
plunge like so many of Stagg's backs.
M\fcDonough, quarter, Anderson, half,
and Burgess, full, round out the back-
The line will be dominated by Capt.
Keli Rouse, star center. In Rouse,
Al Bovard will tackle his second
tough assignment in two Saturdays,
having faced Bob Reitsch, captain of
the Illini a week ago.
Following yesterday's d n m m y
scrimmage, the Wolverines will shift
to the offensive today. Passes are
ant to play a big part in the Michigan
attack, with Puckelwartz and Gilbert
available, and much time is to be spent
on this phase of the game.1

It will be recalled that at the Michi-

this song time and again during the

across the field and sang it in front

the national anthem of the University
