If Rose Were a
IGrenade Thrower

The Cornhuskers shift, which ac-
cording to Assistant-Coach Douglass
the western elevenuses almost exclu-
lively, throws the weight of the attack~
at the ends and tackles. These pos-
itions Yost has been attempting tc
strengthen the past few days, and i
was to plug up the hole at right end
that Boyd was moved out from tackle.
The experience of the Wolverine
line is located wholly at the tackles
andends. Weske and Boyd, two of
three "M" men who will start Satur-
day, are members of the quartet which
will be called upon to bear the big-
gest part of the burden. Goodsell,
though only a reserve man last season,
- is strong enough now to hold his own
at one of the tackles, and Goetz, a
new-comer into Varsity ranks, needs
but experience to be a star.
The center of the line will be pro-
tected by Culver and bortune, both
190-pounders. These men are pro-
ducts of the yearling aggregation of
1916 and have been improving right
along. They are getting the necessary
training and have the physical require-
ments for good line-men ad once
they start playing at top form, they
will, be a hard pair to beat.
Lamhprt, center, will also have a
large share of the burden on his
shoulders. This boy, though light,
weighing but 160 pounds, is a de-
fensive player of the type of "Wally"
Niemann, who was one of the best
Michigan ever turned out.' Lambert
,has had several years experience with
the shift Nebraska uses and is psed
to its intracacies.
All yesterday afternoon, Yost work-
ed his Varsity against the scrubs, who
were using the Nebraska plays. Every
man on the Wolverine eleven received
j0dividual attention and instruction
and toward the end of the afternoon,
the line was smashing the plays in
great shape.
T1ere is some question as to the
ability of either Sparks or Cohn play-
ing Saturday. Sparks has been in a
uniform %very afternoon this week
and seems to be getting back into his
usual shape, but Yost does not want
to take a chance on his star unless
it is absolutely necessary; and so
Cliff may grace the sidelines again
when Nebraska appears.
Cohn was out on the field yeste-
day afternoon in street clothes, and
though he has discarded the cane he
- had been carrying all week, he declar-
ed that he did not know whether he
would be in shape to play or not.
Cohn's weight and ability will be miss-
ed Saturday although Froemke, who
will play left half in Cohn's absence,
is a good player, a hard tackler, and
a clever man in a broken field.
Cambridge, Mass., Oct. 24.- There
will be no Varsity baseball next
spring unless the war is over in the
meantime, the chairman of theAthlet-
lo association announced tonight.
Freshman baseball will be continued
as usual. In place of class baseball
there will be games between battalions
of the Harvard Regiment.



A. C. C.C. to Run
Team Try Outs


Lincoln, Neb., Oct. 24.-With victor-
ies over two of the "Big Ten" teams,
the Nebraskans are preparing "to go
over the top" on Ferry field next Sat-
urday, when they clash with Yost's
The Huskers point with pride to
their seasons successes thus far dur-
ing which they have piled up 154
points and have , blanked the opposi-
tion in every event. With a 4 to 0
defeat marked up against the Iowa
Hawkeyes and a -0 victory over Notre
Dame, the Cornhuskers figure that
another victory over Michigan will
have established their right to West-
ern Conference consideration.
In the dope-book the Wolverines
have the odds from the standpoint of
prestige, but the Nebraskans it is
thought have encountered stiffer op-
position and also their scores are
larger than those of the Wolverines.
The Yost aggregation has been scored
on by two minor colleges of the state
which suggests that the Wolverine
squad is not up to the standard of the
Nebraskan adherents are not both-.
ered much by the small score that
their Varsity made in the Notre Dame
tilt last Saturday because Coach Stew-
art did not open up any of his plays,
being content to use only one trick
play for four forward passes which
netted large gains. They are content
with the Huskers record of 11 first
downs to only one by the Indiana
Catholics, who were confident of vic-
tory as they had held Wisconsin the
Saturday preceding to a scoreless tie.
Coach Stewart did not use his ace
cards halfbacks Curley, McMahon, and
Sam Kellogg in this battle who are two
of the speediest backfield runners on
the Nebraska squad.
In Schellenberg the Huskers have
just as good a ground-gainer as was

Annual State Meet to Be Held Novem-

Rave Fear of M. A. C.
Saturday morning at 10:30 Steve
Farrell desires all candidates for the
cross country team to report at Ferry
field to try out for the team going to
Lansing. The first six men across the
line will be choosen, and these will
represent the University at the State
meet to be held at the Capital, Nov-
ember 3.
For the past two years the Wol-
verine runners have stepped away
with the state title and this year's
meet is only needed to bring back the
cup for good. Last year Eddie Carrol
was the first to cross the finish line.
With M. A. C. on their own course
they are Farrell's men's only rivals.

Little is known about the yearlings
from the Aggie school. The Lansing
papers speak not at all concerning
them and those who hail from there
report slight knowledge of the team.
From somewheres comes the report
that they are the strongest in years.
It has also leaked out that the Farmer

After "Pep" Meeting
Music by "tike" Fisher's Best Musicians

Ralph Rose, winner of the weight

one, time captain of the University of
Michigan track team, is here mention-
ed by Paoli, champion grenade throw-


Dancing 9 to i

Tickets at Busy Bee at and Doer


What exploits Ralph Rose would
have accomplished today, in the
trenches, with the grenade, which to
me, even, seems so light, in his hands!
Surely, if he had lived, if a devastat-
ing sickness had not struck him at
San Francisco, in the prime of his
force, the year before the war, we
should have seen him in the foremost
ranks of the American combatants,
ranged under'the Star Spangled Ban-
The banner of the Stars and Stripes
which he had so often led to victory
in the games of the stadium to which
the whole universe sent its champions,
he would have wanted to lead to vic-
tory in this war in which America has
ranged 'Herself on our side.
Beneath his helmet,swith all his
equipment, formidable, dominating us
all, what would Ralph Rose have done
in the trenches, if he had been a gren-
ade thrower? My very best and most
successful throws barely exceed sixty-
five metres. He would have beaten
me, I am positive, by at least fifteen
Imagine the Hun trench eighty me-
tres away, calm in the absolute cer-
tainty of being out of range of any
projectile thrown by the men, and then
think of him there! And do not say
that throwing the grenade is just as
much like throwing the javelot as it
is like throwing the weight, and that
the last movement is that of throwing
the disc.
Ralph Rose used to twhrow the disc.
He had the strength, the knowledge.
And what I have learned, he with his
muscles and his letting-go, would have
done like a demi-god, like a hero un-
ique in athletics.
Ohj If only Ralph Rose could have
been in our trenches as a grenade
thrower! PAOLI.

Washington, Oct. 24. - President
Wilson's special labor investigating
commission reported today a settle-
ment of the strike of more than 5,000
copper miners in the Globe-Miami dis-
trict in Arizona on a basis which
promises to set a precedent for com-
posing labor disputes elsewhere.
By providing for resumption of work
the commission paved the way for
arbitrating other Arizona copper mine
strikes which had caused loss of many
millions of pounds of war metal in
the last four months.
