"Over there" they call those big
lumbering machines that plough
along without respect to condi-
tions, "tanks." It is said that
these instruments of warfare care
for no man, nor do they stop for
a measley regiment or a whole
division.
After watching Wieman stride
along the white marks on Ferry
feld apparently not noticing the
M. A. C. players that clung to his
legs, the Michigan Varsity de-
cided that between the machines
of warfare and the Wolverine full-
back there was something in cum-
mon.
They call Wieman "Tank" now.

gob Fitzsimmons
. Dies at Chicago
Chicago, Oct. 23.-Robert Fitzsim-
ons, former heavyweight champion
igilist of the world, died late yes-
rday morning following a five days'
[ness of lobar pneumonia. The dis-
se was contracted last Tuesday,
tille Fitzsimmons was playing at a
cal vaudeville theater.
His illness was at first diagnosed as
tomaine poisoning, but was later dis-
vered to be double, or lobal, pneu-
onia. Physicians stated today that
tzsimmons' remarkable vitality and
'im determination were the two fac-
rs that sustained his life long after
ey had themselves given up hope of
s recovery.
Since Fitzsimmons' retirement from
e ring after losing the championship
James J. Jeffries, he has been a
ember of a vaudeville company, op-
ating on one of the Chicago circuits.
tzsimmons is survived by his wife
d one son, Robert Fitzsimmons, Jr.

The report of assistant-Coach Doug-
lass on the Nebraska football team
makes it evident that the Wolverines
will have to play at top form to hold
the Cornhuskers even, while a whole
lot of new strength will have to be
uncovered if Michigan.is to win Sat-
urday.
The western eleven is reputed to be
composed of human giants, the small-
est on the squad weighing a measley
170 pounds. Several of the type of
"Babe" White of Syracuse, are said
to be in the lineup, while the whole
bunch are scrappers from start to
finish. This team used only straight
formations against Notre Dame Satur-
day but according to Douglass demon-
strated a world of power in them.
Yost is going to rebuild for .the
Nebraska game. Not satisfied with the
showing of his ends, the Michigan
mentor is planning on shifting Boyd
to end, Culver to tackle, and filling
the gap with Fortune at guard. Hanish
is slated to go back to right half,
which position he held down yester-
day afternoon in signal practice.
Sparks, who appeared in a uniform
yesterday spent a long period punting,
afterward running the team at quar-
terback. He said he would be in
shape for Nebraska. Yost is planning
on using Weston for the pilot job,
for he does not think that the veteran
quarter will be in shape. Sparks
limped quite a bit in the workout and
favored one leg while kicking.
In case Sparks is unable to play
Weston will get the call for quarter,
but if Cliff returns to the lineup, the
Soo pigmy may get in at right half.
Weston has shown great ground gain-
ing ability the past few games, and
it is hard to leave him on the side-
lines.
The team that Yost is planning on
putting in against Nebraska will not
suffer from lack of weight. From
end to end, the line will average
around 190 pounds, while the back-
field, with Hanish and Sparks play-
ing, will average 175 pounds to the
man. This will give Michigan better
than an 180-pound team, the average
of the Nebraska eleven..

RBRASKA HOPEFUL OF
CONQUERING MICHIGAN

Old dame luck played the leading
role in the freshmen's defeat at the
hands of Heidelberg Saturday when
the yearlings were beaten by the score
of 14 to 12.
Thy inability of Usher and Fletcher
to place the ball between the goal
posts after touchdowns was responsi-
ble for the fact that the final count-
in didn't result in a tie.
To Usher also is due a penalty of
half the distance to the freshmen's
goal from Heidelberg's 20-yard line,
when the fullback became slightly
angry at one of his opponents and
used his kicking foot for the purpose
of revenge during the third quarter.
The Toledo boy was ruled off of the
field.
After this little incident Urchell did
the passing and his work with the
spiral discovered for Coach Mitchell
a tosser of no mean ability. The final
touchdown was the result of three,
passes all true to the mark and thrown
by the quarterback.

Urchell was easily the star of the
game along with Boville. The Detroit
Central man made his end unpassable
and proved himself one of the year-
ling's best bests. Culver and Fletcher
also played well.
This week's program is to be one
of hard work in preparation for the
M. A. C. freshmen, it being one of the
hardest of the All-fresh's schedule and
the game in which a victory is most
desired.

Lincoln, Neb., Oct. 22.-Dr. Stewart,
head football mentor at Nebraska, has
declined to venture a prediction as
to the outcome of the Nebraska-Michi-
gan game, but some of the less con-
servative of Cornhusker followers fig-
ure that their huskies have a fifty-
fifty chance for victory.
Douglass, Michigan's assistant
coach, scouted the Nebraska-Notre
Dame game last Saturday and also re-
fuses to predict the winner but stated
that the Wolverines are looking for-
ward to the stiffest opposition on their
schedule when they clash with the
Huskers next Saturday.
Stewart's warriors emerged from
their victory over Notre Dame with
only one man on the hospital list and
his bruises were serious enough to
keep him from practice today. It is
rumored in the Nebraska camp that
Michigan will present their best line-
up against the Huskers, as several of
their stars who have been on the bench
will be in fighting shape Saturday.
Nebraska's showing against the
Wolverines will be closely watchedby
western football critics as it will de-
termine whether the Cornhuskers are
of Conference calibre this fall. Many
of the Nebraska adherents believe
that they rightfully belong in the Big
Ten and the futile efforts of the past
still rankle in their breasts.
The spirit of the game has inspired
the Lincoln Commercial club members
to start an excursion and thus far a
party of 200 rooters and the university
band will make the trip to Ann Ar-
bor to cheer their varsity to victory.
