not an easy one for ,as he says,
like Goetz and Wieman don't

mgth last year lay in her "in-
defense," as it was described
by one of the other coaches. It was
chiefly due to the line that this de-
fense was able to operate and hold
its opponents to 21 points in seven
games. Goetz was one of the strong-
est cogs in the machine, but this year

On paper the aggregation which will
report to the Michigan mentors looks
to be strong in all departments, but
championships are not won on paper.
The further fact remains that Mich-

The scene is laid in Christiania. All
through the book parliament is quar-

bloods are threatening to revolt or to
leave the country. The reader never
quite finds out what the trouble is. He
finally suspects that it amounts to
nothing and that Hamsun is show-
ing how petty his characters can be.
In fact, I believe the merit of the'
story consists in revealing the trivial
squabbles, jealousies, and downright
dishonestness so often characteristic;
of writers, artists, and actors.
What is particularly enlightening is
the presentation of the treatment of
the business men by their "intellectu-
als." The merchants are called "huck-
sters," they are summoned to pay the
dinner checks, to loan money, to pro-

COACH FIELDING H. YOST, ]MICH-
IGAN'S FAMOUS FOOTBALL MEN-
In reviewing "Shallow Soil," by Knut
Hamsun, I am inclined to let my crit-
icism which appeared in last Sunday's
Detroit Free Press stand. After send-
ing it in, I read "Pan" by the same
author, in the introduction of which
book was an estimate of "Shallow
Soil," by Edwin Bjorkman, a famous
Scandinavian critic. I was astonish-
ed that one so fair and young as my-
self should hit so close to the mark,;
especially in view of antagonistic pro-
fessional remarks concerning this
column and -its writer.
I make my apologies to the Detroit
Free Press for copying the article, and
to the readers of "Critique" for be,
ing too lazy to write a new review.

Poorer Than "Ifuuger"
"Shallow Soil," (a Knopf publica-
tion) by Knut Hamsun, is simply an-
other proof that no first aate writer is
without periodical fallibilities of a
bad sort. It is not nearly so good as
"Hunger," Hamsun's first book, and
it falls far below "Growth of the Soil."
The last mentioned is a work so ex-
cellent that it perhaps sets too high
a standard for' me to review "Shal-j
low Soil" in a strictly unbiased fash-

CAPTAIN "DUKE" DUNNE, WHO
WILL LEAD THE VARSITY SQUAD
are flooded with promising men, while
Wisconsin, Iowa, and Illinois already
have the nuclei for strong squads.
. Two Guards Back
Capt. R. Jerome Dunne leads the
Wolverine machine this year. Dunne
was a guard last fall and in all prob-
ability will be used at the same posi-
tion this year. Hugh Wilson, is an-
other Varsity gaurd who will be back.
Wilson has had three years of ex-
perience and has taken on weight dur-
ing the past year. Weight has always
been a handicap to Wilson, but with
a few additional pounds he will be
able to hold his own against the best.
Ernie Vick, former all-Conference
center, will be back to claim his old
job, as also will Cappon and Goebel
for the end positions. In the back-
field Ted Bank, Eddie Usher, Frank
Steketee are the veterans who will
report for early practice.
Among the new men out for the
guard positions is Swan, a guard who
played with the freshman eleven last
season, Swan is a big fellow and may
give the Varsity guards a race for
their jobs. Tackle will be the position
bothering the coach most,but he has
a. number of prospects among the'
sophomores: Lipscher, Kreinheider.
Van Orden, Muirhead, Neisch, Don
Wieman, and Smith, any of whom may
be used at tackle. In addition to the
men named there are other players
who should give a good account of
themselves when the season opens.
From this list Coach Yost should be
able to pick at least three capable
-tackles to fill the gap in his line.
Ends Taken. Care Of
On the ends Michigan will be well
supplied with Cappon and Goebel, who
performed creditably last season. Cap-
