of their- battle !with Lou Little's
Columbia Lions.
Although the Wolverines left early
last night, they took advantage of a
fine afternoon and brushed up on
their signals, punting and passing in
a light two-hour drill. Even though
they are rated pre-game favorites,
they made certain that they would
be prepared for dnything that lighter
Columbia has to offer.j
Several injuries were reported by
members of the Michigan team, but
none of them are' so serious that a
little tape and precaution could not
relieve any tension that might grow
in the minds of the Maize and Blue
fans. If any of them are important
enough to cite, it might be that
Tippy Lockard's knee, injured in
practice last week, is still causing the
2oaches and Lockard a bit of worry.
All in all, if the two teams are given
at least an even break in the weather,
3aker Field will be the scene of a
fine game tomorrow.

(Special To The Daily)
NEW YORK, N. Y. Nov. 13.-Virtually on the eve of Michigan's important
clash with Columbia's Lions at Baker Field Saturday, gridiron experts
here are stressing one big angle-the Wolverines' amazing intersectional
Amazing is hardly the word; unparalleled would be more apt. For
Michigan has met 21 intersectional opponents during the past 15 sea-
sons, dropping only one contest and tying another. Meeting some of
the nation's finest grid talent, the Wolverines have racked up victory
on end, including two wins' over Columbia in 1935 and 1936. Only Penn-
sylvania in 1936 has beaten the Maize and Blue since its 6-6 deadlock
with Navy back in 1928.
AND when intersectional records are discussed it is only natural that some
grid graybeards bring up the fact that Michigan participated in the
first intercollegiate football game in the Midwest.
It was back in 1879 when Fielding H. Yost, still looking forward to his
tenth birthday, was just a lad in short trousers. Racine College of Racine,
Wis., had challenged any college in the country to a game and Michigan
finally accepted. The game was played in the spring in order to give the
Ann Arbor team sufficient time to learn the game.
DESPITE a somewhat confused newspaper account by some anony-
mous person who obviously was a Racine rooter, the score went down
in history as a 1-0 victory for the Michigan squad after a tough battle.
May 30th was the day of the long-awaited meeting and a small crowd
of "ardent admirers of each club" attended. And although the writer's team
lost, "still the game gave such interest and satisfaction that the defeat can
be overlooked in a certain way."
After a short hitch-"owing to the fact that one boundary line was
not yet made, the calling of the game was delayed until 4"-everything was
set and play started after Michigan won the toss.
FOR A LONG TIME things were pretty even.. Then Michigan got a
slight edge. As the Racine observer put it: "Scrimimage after
scrimmage took place, but a few feet seemed to be gained each time by
Ann Arbor as the wind favored them."
Pond, evidently a halfback, set up Michigan's scoring play whenihe "got
hold of the ball, and like a steam engine, and with a velocity of 40 miles an
hour, the Goliath rushed through the crowd until Ormsby, with his athletic
skill, brought him to the ground."
THERE FOLLOWED: some kind of an argument and again the writer
who covered the game was a little hazy. "There was a little dispute
here," he wrote, "during which time Pond and DePuy of Ann Arbor,
and Greene, Martin and Johnston of Racine, hugged one another on
the highest row of seats behind the north goal (for there is a tier of
seats at that end of the park)."
Which is indeed a strange fashion to settle an argument. But it was
finally concluded and play resumed. Only two minutes of play remained
when Michigan scored the winning point.
THE WRITER swallowed his disappointment and went on to say:
"There was every kind of goodi feeling displayed, and at the end our
team cheered the Ann Arbors, who returned the compliment to us.
Ra-Ra-Ra-Racine went up as our omnibus drove off, and everything
seemed to go off pleasantly and well."
"In conclusion," the article ended, "the umpires, Mr. Pettet of Ann
Arbor, and Mr. Rice of Racine, were very satisfactory; while we must say
commendation should be given to Mr. Van Dyke for the just and fair deci-
sions he made in every case as referee."
