LOS ANGELES, Nov. 15- Sports
1 writers of Southern California have
started the annual forecast on op-
ponents in the Tournament of Roses
football game at Pasadena New Years
day.
One writer announced that Wash-
ington and Jefferson would represent
the East with Pittsburgh University as
an alternate. Another made Pitts-
burgh first choice.

juries.
It is probable that the freshmen
will resort to an aerial game when
touchdowns are needed against the
reserves. This mode of attack was
found very successful against 11he
physical eds. Two passes, Holmes to
Wheeler, were good for gains of 40
and 35 yards respectively.
Wheeler showed himself the most
versatile back on the freshman team
in the physical ed game. His running
and pass receiving were worthy of
comment. Holmes also displayed abil-
ity in kicking and in hurling passes.

Fear Varied Attack of Gophers
Minnesota has this year in addition
to its famous and often disputed shift
a number of other intricate plays
against which the Wolverines must
guard against in Saturday's game;
hence the emphasis on defense rather
than offense in the drills this week.
The roles played by Joesting, Alm-
quist, and Nydahl in the various for-
mations were rehearsed by the yearl-
ing backfield men with an intent to
familiarize the Michigan linemen with
the formations of Dr. Spears' eleven.
Capt. Joesting, who is expected to
carry the brunt of th attack against
Michigan, gained an average slightly
over 5 yards in the 10 times that he
carried the ball against the Drake
forward wall last Saturday.
Pharmer, Minnesota's unique left-
footed punter, was also given some
attention 'by the Maize and Blue
coaches yesterday. Parker, one of
Wieman's linemen who kicks with the
left foot, impersonated Pharmer in
yesterday's drill, kicking alternately
to Gilbert, Miller, and Hoffman, to
accustom the trio of Michigan backs
to Pharmer's punts.
Another drill in Minnesota's offense
is scheduled for the Varsity this aft-
ernoon, with the yearling gridders
again rehearsing the yaried Minneso-
ta formations. Gilbert, Miller, and
hoffman are also slated for drill in
returning the punts off Parker's left
foot.

NEW YORK, Nov. 15-The Yankee
stadium will come a bit closer next
year to seating the hundreds of thous-
ands who applied this fall for tick-
ets to the Army-Notre Dame and
Army-Navy football classics.
. The business office of the Ameri-
can League club announced today
that stands adding 15,000 to the seat-
ing capacity of the park would be
ready for the fall rush of 1928. The
new tiers, to be added to the left
field side of the present stands, will
bring the seating capacity to 85,000,
largest in the East with the exception
of the Sesqui-centennial stadium at
Philadelphia.
