Courtright Drives Men for Game
Scheduled With Mt. Pleasant
This Saturday

With the first game of the pre3-
ent season scheduled with Mount
Pleasant this Saturday, the new
Wolverine "B" team went through
its second workout yesterday under
the critical eyes of Coaches Court-
right and Keen. About twenty-
seven players reported to take part
in the practice session, but Coach
Courtright expects more men to be
out by the end of the week.
A stiff schedule of six games con-
fronts the Junior Varsity this year
with such teams as Illinois, Wis-
consin, Ohio State, Ypsilanti Nor-
mal, Mt. Pleasant Normal, . and-
Western State Normal of Kalama-
zoo slated to furnish the opposition
for the next six Saturdays. The
game this week will bring one of
the best squads on this schedule,
and with the collegians playing on
their own field Coach Courtright
I may expect strong opposition for
his trial contest.
Lineups In Doubt
Although the exact personnel of
the "B" team is as yet in doubt,
there are several men who played
with this team last year who will
