fray at Cambridge. The practice
session was called early and a two
hour workout was spent before the
departure at 4:45 o'clock.
Sharpening their claws a n d
stretching muscles the Wolverines
showed that they were ready for
one of the greatest battles of the
year. Never before this season has
the team spirit and pep reached
the heights that it soared to yes-
terday. To a man the Michigan
gridders appeared to be in better
condition than before any other
game.
Work Crimson Plays.
Running through the defense of
the Crimson plays was the first or-
der of the drill in which three com-
plete teams took place. Contrary
to the usual proceedings the Var-
sity took the part of the Harvard
team for a short time and the run-
ning oi the Crimson formations
was with th2 intent to thoroughly
familiarize them with the Harvard
attack.
Signal practice followed with a
speed and precision that has not
been in evidence so far this sea-
son and it is only the most persist-
an pesimist that would attribute
the added pep to the cold snap.
Line men charged out with a surge
and uison that tokened well of
the last week of practice.
To Drill at Harvard.
Backfield timming was at its
best and the ball carrying showed
a coordination with the interfer-
cnce that gave great promise. Pass-
es long, short, and lateral worked j
with a machine like percision.
With out a doubt the Wolves are
in the top of their form and the
entire squad is rested and strength-
ened for an Eastern invasion. A,
short workout in Harvard Bowl to-
day will shake out all of the train
cramps and leave the Wolverines
stored with power.

Resumption of the annual
Army - Navy football classic
seemed a bit nearer probability
today when officials at Annapolis
announced that the Middies
were more than willing to en-
gage in a post-season game for
charity to be played at Chicago
with a probable gate of about
$1,000,000.
This announcementrhas re-
ceived no response from West
Point as yet, but it places the
soldiers in an embarrassing
position if the challenge is re-
fused.

Jayvee Mentor Confident That
Cvb's Defense Will Hold
Opponents in Check.
LINEUP TO BE ALTERED
When the Wolverine junior vars-
ity faces General Motors Tech to-
morrow on Ferry Field it is prac-
tically certain that Courtright's
charges will offer an offensive
vastly superior to anything they
have yet shown this year. Yester-
day's workout was devoted almost
entirely to polishing the attack,
especially the overhead game, and
the Michigan Cubs showed them-
selves adept with the pass which
spells ill fortune for the visiting
team.
The fact that the strength of the
Technicians is more or less un-
known makes the jayvee's problem
difficult however. The General
Motors team defeated Ferris Insti-
tute, 13-0, but sufficient data can-
not be compiled to allow Court-
right to plan any definite style of
defense. The Wolverine defense
however ha, been tested Uy Con-
ference opponents and not found
wanting, and it is highly improb-
able that this week's opponents
can do a great deal of gaining
where Big Ten teams failed.
Whether the 'B' gridders can gain
on their own account is another
matter.
Courtright is contemplating sev-
eral changes in the starting lineup
of the junior varsity, but just what
men will be replaced has not been
definitely decided as yet. The
return of Frisk to the fold however
will mean the displacement of one
of the men that have been holding
down the tackle post, while the
veteran lineman was laid up.
The General Motors squad is ex-
pected to reach Ann Arbor tomor-
row morning, and may indulge in
a light signal drill upon their ar-
rival. The jayvees on the other
hand will content themselves with
a light workout today as the last
one before game time.

By SHELDON C. FULLERTON.
Michigan's undefeated football
eleven, one of the pace-setters in
the Western Conference race for
1930, will arrive in Cambridge to-
day to battle a downtrodden, but
fighting, Crimson team tomorrow
afternoon in the Harvard Stadium.
Rated, at the beginning of the sea-
son, with only an outside chance
to take the Harvard eleven into
camp when the two teams met, the
tables have turned now, and the
Wolverines will enter the game
favorites to win.
With memories of Barry
Wood, Ben Ticknor, and other
famous Harvard luminaries re-

gan's chances this season were

stood out above the others. The
men on both sides were lacking in
experience.
With only two more weeks of the
grid season remaining the first
year men are looking forward to
their only real encounter of the
year, the games with the Physical
Education eleven. The dates for
these contests have not been de-S
i cided upon as yet, but they will
probably be during the last week
of practice, just before the Chicago
game.
