Has Only Four Real Veterans But a
Large Amount of Freshman
and Reserve Material
Looks Promising
Men to Arrive in Ann Arbor Sept, 7
for Consultation; Practice
Begins on Sept. 8
With only four real veterans avail-
able, Coach Fielding H. Yost has is-
sued his invitation to 40 prospects to
attend the opening gridiron rehearsal
Tuesday, September 8, at 10:00 o'clock
in the morning. He will commence at
this time to mould into shape the team,
which is to face the hardest schedule'
Michigan has ever had.
Scholastic Troubles Bar Some
Eight or nine of the number invited
are restricted by scholastic difficulties.
Although the services of some may be
lost in this manner, there are always
several who show up for practice
without a formal invitation. The ath-
letic association stands ready to refund
the expenses of training season to any
who make good on the squad. In past
years there have usually been one or
two of the unsummoned youngsters
who have proved invaluable contribu-
tions to the team.
Rule books have been mailed to all
of the candidates, and they are asked
to arrive in Ann Arbor Monday, Sept.:
7, to have a consultation with the coach.

The summer session baseball league
has finished its most successful season
since its organization three years ago.
The league has provided summer re-
creation for 66 men, and has proved.
that it deserves a place among recog-
nized summer events.
In previous years it has been im-
possible to keep enough interest to
complete the schedule, but this sum-
er' the schedule has been finished
with two weeks to spare, and with
but four forfeitures. The "pennant"
goes to the strong engineer team,:
which under the guidance of "Tommy"
Hughitt, won seven out of their nine
games. The lifs, however, were but a.
game behind, finishing with six won'
and three lost. The laws are handi-
capped during suunmer session by the
fact that they have two semesters, the
mid-term examinations interfering
with any other interests. They finish-
ed with three games to their credit,
while six went to their debit aide. Two
scraps were all that .the medics were
able to win, while seven black marks.
were placed against them.
The management .states that it is
still in 'bad shape financially, and de-
sires that all slayers contribute. any
