"Graduate Manager Baird re-
ceived a telegramn yesterday from
James R. Wag;ner, president of the
Pasadena Tournament of Roses,
stating that all arrangements had
breen made for the trip to Cali-
fornia.'
"The expenses, amounting to
about $4,000, for the trip are guar-
anteed. T11hi Pasadena Tourna-
ment of Rose s Association at first
kick~ed on paying expensesS for
more than three days on the coast,
bu~t Michigan hung out for six
Sdays, and a telegram was received
z yesterday acquiescing in all de-
mandrs,
"The party will consist of the
thirteen "NI" men, including
S [bstitautes Sou~eth wosrth and
f For'rest, Coach tlYost, Director
Baird, Mlanager Crafts and
')Trainer Fitzpatrick."

Sjust reporting the developments in
the preparations for our team to
go to California to play in the
Rose Bowl-the first Rose Bowl
game on Jainuar y 1, 1902.
The original sponsors of this
now-famous tournament were a
wee bit reluctant to carry their
idea to extremes. After all! $4,-
800 to pay the expenses of thir-
teen ("The expenses of the extra

hree men, amounting to $750, will
e paid by the Athletic Associa-
ion.") for six days on the coast
and transportation there and
)ack. An unheard of figure.
It seems that times have
changed. 'Today it will cast~ at
least $1,000 per man to go to
Pasadena for the New Year's
Day spectacle. And no one seems
to be complaining except the
people who can't get tickets.
Is there an explanation for this
timorousness on the part of the
West Coast philanthropists? It
might be explained in an edito-
rial that appeared in the Stanford
paper shortly before the game.
"Michigan has not met any
first-class teams, and Northwest-
ern is the only university with
which she has contested that
claims to be even second-class."
The editor may have had
some basis for his statement,
but even then the teams would
have to have been extremely
poor, and Michigan would have
to have had something to pile
up 501 points and hold their op'-
ponents scoreless.I
Fielding 1f. Yost's aggregation
dispelled any cause for doubt,
however, by taking matters into
!their own hands on New Year's
Day and proving that they had
earned and deserved their posi-
tion of greatness.I

that a brain concussion had devel-

Dr. A. W. Coxon said last night,
however, that X -rays revealed

released from Health Service to-

This is the only home game of
the Christmas holidays. It offers
an opportunity and some consola-
tion for those unable to go to the
Rose Bowl. It's now possible to
see the Trojans battle Michigan,
but on the basketball floor, not on
the gridiron.
After taking a week out for
Christmas celebration, the team
will play a couple of games with
Iowa State at Ames, December 29
and 30.
Rounding out their hectic holi-

This game should find the Wol-

Pete Elliott and Irv Wisniewski
will fly back from Pasadena and
be r'eady to exchange their cleats
for a pair of rubber-soled shoes.
This will give them a game and a

of the few r'emaining undefeated
Western Conference teams. Indi-

tender for the championship,

hot Kansas State quintet Monday
