Manders, the highly touted Min-
nesota fullback, was stopped coldl
by the Michigan forwards yesterday
afternoon. Manders was. the play-
er who toreathe Northwestern line
to threads two weeks ago, gaining
ground every time he carried the
ball. It looks as though the Michi-
gan linetis more than a match for
the Northwestern forwards.
Minnesota's captain, Munn, show-
ed plenty of speed in the first quar-
ter. The first time he came out of
the line to carry the ball, he start-
ed for tackle with more speed than
ycu will find in a lot of backfield
men. But the Michigan forwards
stopped him without gain.
Somers, Minnesota quarter-
back, is about the shiftiest run-
ner seen on the Michigan grid-
iron this year. Time after time,
the Michigan tacklers would be
left lying on the ground as
Somers would almost stop dead,
causing the would-be tackler to
miss him completely. Incident-
ly, Somers was the only Gopher
who could gain much through
the Michigan team.
The Minnesota band has one of
the best baton wielders in the
country. Before the game, he
brought the crowd to cheers by the
manner in which he threw his ba-
ton over the goal posts. But his
crowning achievement was between
the halves when he whirled two,
batons with startling skill.
Michigan's band, as usual,
pulled something original in'
new formations. Between the
halves, they marched down the
field in the form of a brown
jug with, a question mark. They
also made a perfect "YOST"
before leaving the field.
The "Little Brown Jug," or at :
least its substituted reposed on the
Wolverine side of the field yester-
day. By winning the game, Michi-
gan can keep the jug at least an-
other year. It is very doubtful if
the present' jug is the one stolen
from the Michigan bench in 1902,
but by winning yesterday's game,
they have another year yet to find

down in the first quarter was
a pretty piece of powerful run-
ning. He broke through the
tackles without any interfr-
ence left to block out the se,-
endary. There were three M'in-
ne!ota backs cutting over to
stop him. The big fullback ct-
raem the first, had a powerful
straight-arm ready for the sec-
ond who came at si H a little too
high for his own god. The
safety man hit Hewitt from the
side, but Bill spun out of hi~s

line for the only touchdown of
Peteskey missed his first try for
point after touchdown yesterday.
His kick looked like it was going
over, but it hit the top of the sup-
porting standards and bounded
back into the playing field.
With about four minfutes left
to play, Minnesota opened up
a desperate paissing attack. A
long pass intended for Swartz
was touched by Fay, deflecting
it towards Captain Hudson,
who snatched the pigskin with
one hand and started off for
the Gopher goal line, being
forced out of bounds on the
Minnesota 34-yd. line.
Just before the game ended, Wil-
liamson intercepted another Goph-
er pass and ran to the seven yard
line before he was thrown out of
liound.s. The game ended before
Michigan could try a play.
The first quarter 50-yard touch-
down run by Hewitt was clocked by
the sport staff's stop watch in 8 2-3
seconds. Jack Heston's 27-yard
dash down the side lines in the first
quarter was timed at 3 2-3 seconds.

Report to Philbin
for Boxing Teams
More than 160 boxers have sign-
ed up for the class teams under
the tuteledge of Let Philbin. Light-
weights and welterweights seem to
have the edge in numbers and abil-
ity over tht other divisions.
However Coach Philbin is anx-
ious to have more flyweights and
heavyweights report for training
and more middleweights could be
used also. Each team will have one
man to represent it in the semi-
finals. The selection of the team
makeup will be determined in
training periods by Coach Philbin.
The fighters are now going
through a regular series of prepar-
ation bouts so that they will be ac-
customed to working under fire.
This training has gradually passed
the fundamental stage but not in
all cases as Philbin is taking the
men along the path of fighters just
as fast as they can advance.

for Dec. 3 so that the fighters can

view he has revamped the team:
during the last two seasons and
only one man of the 1928 sextet
continues to hold down a berth.
The single exception is Billy;
Burch, veteran center and one of
the best in the game. The other.
forwarts are Normie Himes, spare,
center, Ted Patterson, formerly of
the Canadiens, Hap Emms, who
used to play wing for the Montreal
Maroons, Rabbit McVeigh, diminu-

youngsters picked up direct from
the minors, Ab Hughes and George

Shields, the latter a, defense man-.
The defense is composed of vet
erans, comprising Red Dutton, Bill
Brydge, Shields and Ayres, the lat-
ter the only youngster of the-group.
In goal is the reliable Ray Worters.
The team looks promising and if it
can develop the spark Gerard's
squads have always lacked, it should
make a determined bid for a play-

Taking cognizance of the general
howl of disapproval which greeted
the larger and lighter golf ball, the
United States Golf Association yes-
terday voted to adopt a ball 1.62
ounces in weight and 1.68 inches
The ball in use last year weighed
1.55 ounces, but was the same size
as the new ball which will become
official January 1, 1932. The weight
adopted for the new ball is the
same as that of the ball in use be-
fore any change was made. The
net result of all of the changes is
a ball six-hundredths of an inch
Will This Be Remedy?
It is hoped by officials of the
United States Association that the
new ball will be officially adopted
by the Royal and Ancient, rulers of
British golf. They had refused to
consider the ball used in the Unit-
ed States last year.
The discrepancy in the size and
weight of the- ball used in the Unit-
ed States and Great .Britain proved
to be a serious handicap to inter-
national play. When the Britishers
played in this country they were
forced to use the official American
ball. The so-called "balloon ball"
was not in any way fitted for use in
the British Isles, since the high
winds prevailing there had the ball
continually at their mercy.
The decision to change the di-
mensions of the ball came as a re-
sult of the widespread dissatisfac-
tion evidenced by the average play-
ers in polls conducted by newspap-
ers in various localities. Statistics
gleaned from major open tourna-
ments during the last year reveal
that the "balloon" did not serious-
ly handicap the experts in their
attack on par. The latest move is
a distinct concession to the average
sale of these tickets in the Met-
ropolitan area. An office in the
General Motors building has also
been added to the list of Detroit
