Coolidge Ready ToNV

WASHINGTON, Nov. 11.-President
Coolidge is ready to talk business

"Tomorrow," Coach Wieman said,
"approximately 85,000 people will as-

"Watch for 47"
N'Captain Iennie Oosterbaan, of
Muskegon, plays left end. He is the
big fellow with number 47 on his,
back. This is Bennie's last year. He
has played on two championship foot-1
ball teams at the University of Mich-i
igan, two championship basketball
teams and one championship baseball
team. Also, he has twice been select-
ed as All-American end. Don't forget
to look for number 47. He is, per-
haps, the greatest all around athlete
in any college, or university today.,
"The right tackle, Norman Gabel, of
Detroit, has a number of distinctions.

Activities Of Operatives In

"Herman Nyland will probably play
right end. He comes from Grand Ha-
ven, Michigan, and is, I believe, the
only boy from that town to have won
a Michigan "M" in football.
"Jim Miller who played his first
game at quarterback against Chicago
last Saturday will again be at the
signal-calling post. He is a great boy,
and a fine leader. He has never fallen
down on anything we have asked him
to do on the football field. He did!
an almost perfect job of running the
team against Chicago last Saturday
and I have great confidence in him
for tomorrow. Jim is a Law student
and comes from Adrian.
Pommerening At Tackle. ,
Next to Bennie will be Otto Pem-
merening at left tackle. Otto is anj
Ann Arbor boy and is playing his first
varsity football this season. He isj
known by his teammates as theI
"Sphinx" because of his unbroken si-
lence. But, as long as Otto keeps busy
with his feet and hands we are not
much concerned about his tongue.
At the halfback positions you will
see Louis Gilbert, of Kalamazoo and
Joe Gembis, .of Vicksburg, Michigan.
You all know Gilbert. He will kick,
pass, run, and receive passes. He does
all these things well. His number is
16 and he will be worth watching
"Joe Gembis has been incapacitated
most of the seasonbbut he is now
ready to play and will start the game
at right half.
"George Rich will play fullback
again. He made a reputation as a line
bucker against Chicago last Saturday
which he will try to uphold tomorrow.
George is another law student and!
his home is in Cleveland.
Whole Squad Young.
"Although most of these boys are up-
perclassmen they are relatively young
in years. The oldest man in this line-3
up, Otto Pommerening, tackle, is 23.'
The younest is Joe Gembis, halfback,
who is 19. The average age of the
eleven men starting the game is 20
10-11ths years. Six of the eleven are
seniors, four are juniors, and one isS
a sophomore. I have never known a
finer lot of boys than those in this
group," Coach Wieman declared. "We
have had an exceptionally good time
together. We have had our fun and
we also have had our serious times.

Attributes High Motives To Exiled
Prince' Desire For Return
To Country
(By Associated Press)
BUCHAREST, Rumania, Nov. 11.-
Speaking with eloquence which held
audience and judges spellbound for
two hours, M. Manoilescu, former und-
ersecretary of finance, who is on trial
charged with complicity in a Carolist
plot, today revealed that former
Crown Prince Carol did not seek the
throne he had renounced, but only
membership on the regency.
"The prince is too loyal and decent
to think of dethroning his own son,"
Manoilescu declared in highly emo-
tional tones. With a courage that as-
tounded even his own lawyers, he lash-
ed at the present government as a
disaster to Rumania..
Manoilescue startled the court room
by stating that Carol was firmly con-
vinced there is a growing movement
for a republic.
"Every day's events strengthens the
I prince's convictions," Manoilescu as-
serted. "Hence his desire to return is
merely an expression of his anxiety to
strengthen the regency and thereby
fortify his own family dynasty."
Manoilescue insisted that it was im-
possible to attribute to himself any in-
tentions other than those entertained
by Carol and therefore there never
was any question in his mind of
changing either the king or the consti-
tution as charged against him.
Must Follow Rules
in Cheering Section
All students who are to sit in the
cheering section this afternoon are
asked by officials of the Student Coun-
cil to comply with the regulations of
the section willingly. Attention is
called to the fact that students who
present themselves at the section
without their uniforms will not be per-
mitted to sit in the section.
Students in this section are asked to
arrive promptly at game time or a
few minutes before and to obey the
cheerleaders in all of their requests.
Cooperation is asked if it becomes
necessary for the leaders to rearrange
some of the seats to emphasize the
outline of the black 'M' which the

Varsity Band, singing, Kipke, Rich,
And Donaldson Comprise The
Pep Program
"Michigan is not going to lose the
Navy game tomorrow, we'll smash
the Navy," asserted Charles T. Rich,
prominent Cleveland attorney and
father of George B. Rich, '30L, plung-
ing fullback of the Varsity team, who
was the principal speaker at the pep
meeting held last night in Hill audi-
torium. Claiming thiit the cheering
of the Michigan stands should be much
louder and more enthusiastic, Rich
said, "When you're in those stannds to-
morrow, cheer hard, the harder you
cheer, the harder your team will play,
and the harder they play, the better
they'll push the Navy back to the sea."s
Asbeck Is Chairman
At the beginning of the pep-meeting,
after music by the Varsityband, Fred
Asbeck, '29, chairman of the meeting,
introduced Earl V. Moore,of the
j School of Music, who led the crowd in
singing several Michigan songs, in-
cluding "Varsity" and "The Victors,"
urging also that the students respond
at the game and sing the songs.
Coach Harry Kipke paid a tribute to
the st"dent body for the way in whichl
the defeat of the Wolverines by Illi-
nois was received two weeks ago. "It
is easy," said Coach Kipke, "To back
a winning team. Anyone will do that.
Michigan has always had great teams.
But there are times when victory does(
not result for her teams; breaks occurI
often which turn the tide of the game.
Donaldson Speaks
Speaking for the faculty, Prof.
Bruce Donaldson, of the fine arts de-
partment, declared that "College spirit;
is what makes intercollegiate football
clean, and it is up to you who are stu-
dents of a great institution to keep it
clean by the right spirit. We at Mich-
igan have a great reputation for clean,

reputation, and let it be known always
that Michigan football teams are fair,
that they play a thoroughly clean
