Yost Point-A-Minute Football Squad'
Left Southern Opponents Confused;


e hate Coach Plans
Squa I Organization'
The men's varsity debating team
for the coming season will be organ-
ized at a meeting to be held at 4
p.m. Monday in Room 4203 Angell

Among the most famed creations of
40 years work by Fielding H. Yost,
who will be honored Saturday, Oct.
19, by a testimonial banquet honor-
ing his colorful career, were the
point-a-minute football teams that
remain a unique feature in sports
From 1901 to 1905 the five teams
coached by Yost played 54 games
without a loss, including 29 succes-
sive victories, and scored 2,821 points
to their opponents' 42. These fig-
ures illustrate the origin of the
phrase "point-a-minute," but some
of Michigan's opponents back in the
early part of the century had a dif-
ferent impression of the teams.
Michigan 130, W. Va. 0
After a game between West Vir-
ginia and Michigan in 1904 a news-
paper bore the headline, "One Hun-
dred and Thirty Points Against a
Goose Egg-Some of the Players
Claim to Have Seen Michigan in
Action, Others Skeptical-Remnants
Return Home."
The account recorded the impres-

sion of the West Virginia gridsmen
as follows: "It is declared that every
player on Yost's team weighs eight
tons and has an average speed of
96 miles per hour. They are said
to breathe forth smoke and flames
and to be of superhuman strengthl
and cunning.
'M' Men 100 Feet Tall
"One player says he was plucked
up in the air and thrown over the
head of a creature which was at least
100 feet high and ,had eight pairs of
arms. The monster had a huge
mouth adorned with teeth nine feet
long but did not seem to be hungry
and allowed his helpless quarry to
fall without devouring him.
"Once or twice the West Virginians
succeeded in getting across the center
of the field as Yost's machine rolled
over the goal line but generally they
failed to fall back that far before
the climax came. At noon today a
telegram was received from Kuropat-
kin congratulating the team on its
success in luring the.Michigan team
over the goal line."
One player stated, "They had a

ton of meat and bone and the thing
moved with an average velocity of

Two Signals At Once
"The signals were given for the
