Jumbled Lineups (and Raii Combine to
)lake Practice Mostly Drab
And Ragged
By Herbert F. Vedder.
Occasionally bright spots insisted on
breaking through an otherwise dull,
ragged second scrimmage of the Var-
sity football squad yesterday after-
noon. The raggedness and drabness
was no more than expected, but the
bright spots were more than could be
asked. Coaches and weather worked
perfectly together to make the prac-
tice a hopeless jumble between mired
lineups and the intermittent rain. It
seemed to be the individuals that the
coaches are seeking to uncover rather
than any regular team play. That
will come later.
In the first half of the scrimmage,
during which some 35 men showed
their wares, fumbles and intercepted
passes were almost.the only features.
A duel of ends was another part of
the program with Lavergn6 T,-lor
and Herman Nyland playing opposite
each other. Taylor showed to especial
advantage as a kicker for the Blue.
Ilesloan Slightly Inured.I1
The Bljues lined up with Taylor
and Heston at ends but Heston was
slightly injured and Roderick re-
placed him. Grinnell and Meese at
tackles, Robbins and Kerr at guards
and Schoenfeld completed the line,
while Domhoff took the quarterback
position, with Rich at fullback and
Geistert and Babcock at the halves
rounding out the team. Rich's passing
to Geistert and Domhoff almost the
only ofensive weapon the Blues dis-
On the Red team, Boden and ' yland
took care of the ends while Williams
and Pommerening were at tackles,
Barker and Poe at guards and Cragin
at; center. In the backfield, McBride
played quarterbock, Harrigan and
Schwarze at the halves and Gembis at
fullback. The entire line 'of: thisa
teaTm seemedto baffle the Blue front.
4 A new Red team later was brought
out to face the Blues, consisting of
Carter, Roderick, Poorman, Nicker-
son, Weber, Sullo, Crego, Whittle,t
Cook, Sims, and Fuller.

Competition in many sports will get
under way next month when the ath-
letic program sponsored by the in-
tramural department will open the
fall activities. After the successful
season experienced last year it is ex-
pected that even a greater number of
participants will enter the inter-fra-
ternity contests for 1927-28.
Speedball is the first event listed
on the autumn sports card. Play will
commence October 4 on south Ferry
field. In addition to the fraternity
league, class speedball teams will be
formed. Other sports scheduled are
cross-country, wrestling, dual swim-
ming, and water polo.
Several tournaments are slated for
this fall. The all-campus tennis tour-
ney will take place on the Ferry field
courts during October while the all-
campus handball competition will be
held in Waterman gymnasium.
Points will again be awarded for
participation in trials for Sigma Delta
Psi, national honorary athletic fra-
ternity. These trials will continue all
through the year.

\4 With the rehearsal of fundamentals
and other preliminary preparationsi
completed, Coach Edwin J. Mather is-
sued headgears and shoulder pads to
his 117 freshmen gridders yesterday
and ordered immediate workouts of a
more strenuous nature. Blocking and,
tackling, followed by a brief scrim-
mage between picked elevens, consti-
tuted the major part of yesterday'st
drill on south Ferry field following
Coach Mather's announcement.
Though it is too early to determine
the status of any of the candidates,
there have been several men who have
George (Tex) Rckard been outstanding performers in the

host to 150,000 fight fans in Soldiers' declared, are for the most part bigger

Cobb Leaves Macks
On Friendly Terms
( Special to the Daily)
PHILADELPHIA, Pa., Sept. 22.-
"I have enjoyed my year with thb
Athletics, a-1I Cojiie Mack has asked
me to return next season,' declared
Ty Cobb yesterday before departing
for a hunting trip in Wyoming.
This statement by the "Georgia
peach' sets to rest rumors that Cobb,
is ready to quit baseball, although his
action in leaving the team before the
close of the season is almost unpre-
cedented in the major leagues.

Candidates for the varsity cross
country team will hold their first
trial run of the present season at
10:50 o'clock tomorrow morning, ac-
cording to an announcement made
yesterday by, Stephen J. Farrell, Wol-
venen cross country coach.
Tomorrow's event will in no sense
be considered a time trial, the pur-
pose of the run being merely for the
candidates to obtain the benefit of
jpracticing together and judging their
pace. The distance covered will be
two miles.
Although the cross country squad
numbered only 20 men at the first of
the week, it has gradually increased
to 30, but even this is considerably
below the number of men desired by
the veteran Michigan mentor.
TORONTO-Walter Hlagen may pur-,
chase the Rochester baseball team of
the Lnternational league.
