One person in this world decided
some time ago that Michigan would
lose a number of football stars from
her 1917 team. Germans call him
"1-is Majesty, The Kaiser," Americans
are wont to refer to him as the per-
son who started all this affair in
Pat Smith was to have been the lea-
der of the team last fall. Pat is at
Great Lakes with the naval militia.
He enlisted in the spring. With him
went Raymond, halfback and punter
extraordinary; Loucks, a safe bet for
one of the end jobs; and Hildner, a
handy man in many positions.
Peach at Present in the Navy
Besides these four men, all of whom
were counted upon heavily as regu-
lars, Yost lost Peach, star end of
Captain Maulbetsch's team, and rank-
ed as one of the best flankers in
the highest circles. Peach is in the
navy at present and stationed at
Port Royal, S. C.
Naturally the loss of these men
left several positions wide open. Wie-
man stepped into his captain's place,
and is filling the bill in great shape.
To take Raymond's place at half,
Yost has a host of material. Cohn,
Ryes, Froemke and Hanish have been
playing the positions during most of
the games, and look like the best
bets for the rest of the season.
Yost Has Hard Time to Find Ends
To plug the ends left vacant by
Peach and Loucks, the coach has been
using material of all sorts. The Cress
brothers started the year, but s-
gave way to Cartwright, Hendershot,
Goetz, Hanish and Cruse. Neither
flank position is anywhere near set-
tled as yet.
One of the surprises to date is the
ability shown by both Genebach and
Weston as pivots. Both are small, but
fast and slippery. Both, have a world
of the old ginger. Their coming
through has solved a big problem Yost
has had to conted with ever since
Sparks was hurt last year.
New ork Coach Joins Colors

the fortunes of the New York Univer-
9ty football eleven since the begin-
ning of the season, has been called to
