(By Harry B. Grundy)
New Sweaters for Grid Team
Big Ten teams will appear on the
gridiron this fall with sweaters which
will not confuse the spectators or the
members of the respective teams in
their play, particularly in the pass.
Hitherto many of the teams have worn
sweaters which were almost identical
in color, and confusion has often re-
sulted. Michigan wears bluf; Wis-
consin wears cardinal; Minnesota ap-
pears in green; Ohio State combines
its colors in stripes of scarlet and
gray; Illinois has up to the present
time worn a blue which is almost the
same as that donned by the Michigan
eleven; Northwestern is attired in

bright purple sweaters; while Stagg's
Chicago team wears its traditional
- maroon.
Similar Colors Confuse
An example of the confusion which
ty and often takes place was noticed in the
Illinois-Michigan game on Ferry field
I last fall, when both teams appeared
on the field with the same colored jer-
seys. Frequently, during the course
ormer of the game, the players were momen-
tarily at a loss to know their own
teammates because of the similarity
of color of the jerseys. Another con-
For- dition in this game was the fact that
both elevens were playing in new foot-
ball togs.
Some method should be provided to
aid in avoiding this confusion, but
none of the universities care to change
= because it would not represent their
- traditional colors. ┬▒uppke, of Illinois,
S _has made a step in solving the prob-
lem by changing the color of the In-
dians' jerseys from the traditional blue
ter and to orange. Since the Illini colors are
nchos, = orange and blue, this was easily ac-
Sacks, complished. In the future Illinois will
not be bothered by confusion, and it
was inevitable that either Michigan or
Child- = Illinois must change to avoid this

much of his ground gaining by
straight line bucking.
Scored Against Chicao
In the Chicago game, Usher scored i
both touchdowns against a team whichi
the previous week Crangle of Illinois
had been unable to score on. Against1
Ohio State, Usher again delivered
when Michigan reached the two-yardi
line, a feat which few players accom-
plished. In running interferencet
Eddie had no peer on the team, and
it was partly due to his work that the
wonderful interference was formed
which allowed Jack Dunn to score
after he had intercepted a passi on
the Michigan 30-yard line in the game
with Illinois.
Judging from appearances, Eddiez
will be as valuable this year as last
and will be one of the important -cogs
which is expected to make Yost's ma-
chine move.
Recent reports from Urbana refute
the earlier statement that Charles
!'Chuck" Carney, All-American end,
will be kept off of the gridiron this
-season because of an injured knee, the
result of a blow received in the Ohio-
Illinois game last fall. Carney has
experienced great trouble with his
knee and was able to play basketball
last year only with a' strong brace
over the injured limb.
A recent operation performed in
Chicago, according to his physician,
has remedied all of the stiffness in the
knee, and Carney will be as dangerous
as ever on the ends. He is captain of
the Illinois court five for next year
and his presence in football and base-
ball will insure the Western Confer-
ence that another man of great ability
will again perform in its college cir-

Others Should Change
There still remain a number of
teams wearing a variety. of red, and
their problem is unsolved, although
Ohio has to a certain extent elimi-
nated the difficulty by its combination
of scarlet and gray. It will now be
up to Chicago and Wisconsin to de-
cide upon the difference between car-
din;l and maroon on a football field
and to effect a change. For the other
teamns there should be no confusion
in' the future.
Usher Back
Eddie Usher, star Varsity halfback
for the two past years, is spending a
few days in Ann Arbor prior to his
return for the training grind Sept 15.
Usher looks to be in the prime of con-
dition, and says that he is going out
to tear up the opposing lines this year.
Eddie has always been a good combi-
nation of an open field runner and line
Last year Usher probably showed to
best advantage, and from all appear-
ances he will be out this. fall to play
havoc with his opponents. As an open
field runner Usher"┬░ has made many
gains for the Wolverines, but his gains
through the line contributed more to
Michigan scores. In the early part of
the year he was apt in breaking
through the line, and shaking off tack-
lers by his ability to whirl and dodge
when tackled. Later, however, he did

Fall Foot Wear

Autumn i

New Fall foot wear for women is stylish
and yet serviceable. An attractive pump or
oxford on a dainty foot gives a tinge of fash-
ion to a suit or gown, that might otherwise
seem commonplace. In the higher grades of'
fashionable foot wear for women we are show-
ing a very extensive collection from
which you may select your new Fall footwear.
We have the e cclusive agency for Dorothy

Play in the campus tennis tourna-
ment is nearing an end. Two matches
are still unplayed in the fourth round.
Olmacher vs. Block, and Zook vs.
Naranty have not yet played off their
fourth round matches. Jerome play-
ing at his best form easily overcame
Cooper in straight sets 6-1, 6-2. Jer-
ome's placements and service were
at their best. Rorich also had an easy
time in winning his way into the semi-
finals. Fourth round matches must be
played' off immediately so that the
semi-finals and finals can be closed up
this week.
From all indications Rorich, Zook,
and Jerome stand out as the three best
players on the court. It is likely that
these men will be players in the semi-
finals. The tournament has brought
out some spirited play and has uncov-
ered some likely Varsity material for
next year in addition to bringing out
the net artists from other universities
who are attending the Summer ses-
sion. j
In the doubles, the final match be-
