Blue Eleven Holds Yellow After
Fay Places Pigskin in
Striking Distance.
Yesterday afternoon the Varsity
football candidates opened the last
veek of spring practice with a cou-
ple of periods of scrimmage. The
two lineups of the Yellows and the
Blues were pitted against each
other, the coaches shifting the men
continually to keep new players in
the lineups and get a line on the
progress of every man out for prac-
Blue's Hold at Goal.
No scoring was done by either
team, although the Yellows had at
least two splendid chances to take
the pigskin across the end zone for
a tally. The first time, during the
early period, the Blues were pushed
back to their goal line on a long
criss-cross run of Fay's, and the
set-up was first and ten for the
Yellows, with goal to go. Then the
Blue line aided by a timely fumble
of the Yellow backs, stiffened and
held for no gain in a manner rem-
iniscent of similar trying times in
the fall football season.
The end of the first period was
lengthened five extra minutes at
the command of Coach Kipke to let
the Blues, who were in possession
of the ball and apparently headed
for a touchdown, have as much
time as needed to get the oval over
the goal. Again a fumble spoiled
their chance and the period was
finally stopped.
Yellows Threaten.,
The finish of the last periodI
found the situation reversed with1
the Yellow team within the ,Blue
ten-yard line, first and ten. The
first play ruined the effort made
by Petoskey's reception of a long
pass that put them there, for the
result was another fumble that in
turn resulted in the coach calling
the play at that juncture.
The freshmen players were doing
the stellar work this session, with
Fay of the Yellows looking far the
best. Time and again he made sub-
stantial gains through the line and
