From the
By John Thomas
Yost's 28-Year-Old
Record, Broken
LAST FALL a 28-year-old record
was broken by West Liberty
Teachers that had rested on Coach
Yost's shoulders for more than a
quarter of a century. This college in
West Virginia defeated Cedarville
college in Ohio, 137 to 0. Yost's high-
est score was 135 to 0.
The University of West Virginia
came to Ann Arbor on a hot Septem-
ber day in 1904 to try conclusions
with the Men of Yost on the foot-
ball field. It was in mid-week and
very hot as West Virginia kicked off
to Willie Heston, who with Shorty
Longman andt Torn Hammond in
front of him, streamed down the
field for the first touchdown. The
visitors did the same thing again
and Heston duplicated his jaunt of
a minute before. So, after three min-
utes, West Virginia decided that it
was not the thing to do to kick off.
But that did not make any differ-
ence, for Heston made two more
scores in about as many minutes.
Willie began to pant. The blister-
ing hot day started to take its toll
on the immortal ball-carrier. Long-
man's bad knee had conveniently
gone back on him as soon as he had
made certain that his services would
not be needed. Hammond developed
a bruised shoulder-very painful, to
be sure. Various alleged injuries in-
capacitated Shulte, Norcross, and
Curtiss. One by one they had limped
happily to the side lines, and the
game was still young when Heston,
alone of the regulars, remained to
Even if Heston succeeded in avoid-
ing 'the ball on the kickoff, it was
only temporary rellef, for the quar-
terback invariably called his signal
on the first line-up. Single-handed
he ran the score up to 60 and 0. But
he was disgusted. Raucous cheers
fiom his former well-wishers now
setting comfortably on the bench,
told him that he was being made a
goat. So on the next scrimmage in
midfield, Heston lay at its bsottom
when4 it unpiled, eyes closed, limp,
and inert. Now Heston was never
known to be taken out of a game, and
Keene Fitzpatrick was suspicious as
he trotted out on the field with the
water boy. He took but one look and
then said to the timers, "It's all
right, Billy will °get in ther"" So
Billy did.
Two or three touchdowns later
Heston was again found on the bot-
tom of a pileup. Again the tvainer
diagnosed his case as plain ennui
and ordered him on. After another
two or three touchdowns, Heston was
again on the ground. This time he
yelled to Yost, "Honest, Coach, I'm
all in. I can't move. I'm paralyzed.
Please take me out."
Yost was doubled over with laugh-
ter and said that he could come
out-only first he must make one
more touchdown. On the first play
he took the ball and tore down the
field, straightarming, sidestepping,
dodging, and mixing his bull-
strength with his snake qualities.
finally scored. The crowd was in on
the secret by this time and cheered
,as he barely slowed to plan the ball

Spring vacation, while a relief to
the average students, will provide
difficulties for the baseball team, ac-
cording to Coach Ray Fisher. The
team plans to begin outdoor drills
the week before spring vacation
starts, which will necessitate bringing
the squad along much faster than
last year's, in order to offset the lay-
off week.
The problem will be especially dif-
ficult since there will be no chance
to practice fielding until the team
goes outside, and with two positions
in the infield open, the defensive
value of the players must be dis-
covered as soon as possible.
In yesterday's batting practice
Rus Oliver, sophomore football and
basketball star, hit the ball hard re-

cation. Michigan State Normal is to

and the team will play a single game
at Hillsdale.

Grimes, is in the city hospital with
an attack of influenza
behind the goal posts, and continued
on a wild dash out the east gate
around the back way to the dress-
ing room. He was afraid to look back
in fear that the coach would find
something wrong with his technique
and would make him do it over
again. The final score was 135 to 0
and a new high scoring record was
But now the record is broken. It
was the University of West Virginia
who helped in the first instance and
it was West Liberty Teachers of West
Virginia who broke it in the second.

Track Squad Prospects Are
Promising For 1931 Sen
Michigan's loss of the Big Tend
Conference track title by only 41
points naturally raises the question,
"What are the prospects for next
year?" Contributions that the fresh-
man squad will make towards the
Varsity next year appear to be only
in the departments that proved
strongest this year. With the excep-
tion of the pole vault and possibly
the two-mile run, the weak points of
the team this year will undoubtedly
remain the weak ones next year.
The loss of. Captain "Chuck" De-
Baker in the 440 and Hawley Eggles-
ton in the hurdles will create a hole
in the Varsity that will be hard to
fill. Ellerby and Starr are the only
frosh that looked good this year, cov-
ering the 440 course in less than :54.
Of course Pantlind will remain to
win points in the hurdles, but the
help Hunt can give him next year
is very doubtful.
Probably the greatest loss to the
team will be in the 880 by Ned Tur-
ner's exit. He will probably be suc-
ceeded by Gorman or Goodman.
However, neither yearling has even
approached the old Conference rec-
ord of 1:55 which Turner broke in
this year's contest. The mile and " y
two-mile events will lose both Bill
Hill and Doc Howell, but Gorman
and Randall ran under 4:34.4 for the Capt. Johnny Schmiclerz

Ghesterfields Taste Better
SiMOKERS notice a certain "touch" in
Chesterfields that comes from having
just enough Turkish tobacco in them . . . a
spicy, aromatic flavor that's much the same
to a cigarette as seasoning is to food.
For only by blending and cross-blending
the right amounts of mild Domestic tobaccos
with the right amount of Turkish can we
get the flavor and aroma that Chesterfield
smokers enjoy.

Next time, ask for "{The Cigarette
Satisfies". .. you'll get Chesterfields,
Milder, Better Taste.
