Old Injuries'
at Club-

So as to allow his men to recuper-.
ate after their victory of Saturday,
Coach Mitchell let them off with only
a 'short signal drill yesterday. The
rain and injuries kept a large numi-
ber of the squad away from Fer-
ry field.
The coach is entirely satisfied with
the work of his proteges in the game
with the M. A. C. All-fresh. A close
struggle had been anticipated and the
21 to 0 victory proved that the ver-
dants arestrong, this year, in every'
department of the game.
The backfield and the line played
in accord, against the Farmers, and
even though the field was virtually a
sea of mud the backs did some pretty
open field running and off tackle buck-
ing. The forwards held well with tie
exception of three times when thi
Lansing backs got away for short
gains. They also did well in opening
up holes when Mitchell's men had the

The Aggle game was taken as the
turning point of the season by the,
freshman coach, who believes that
now, since his men have put away
the game with the Farmers they will
have little trouble with the +rest of
the teams on their schedule.
Overheard at the
Cornhusker Game
"Let me see the program, O, we're
playing Nebraska today. What's Ne-
braska like, anyway?"
"Ah, Nebraska-Cornhuskers! They
grow corn there, dear."
"Do you like corn?"
"I just love it."
"Nebraska must be u wonderful
"I'm so glad you don't play foot-
ball, Bertie; I'd just worry myself
to death if I saw you out there on the
field, being mauled."
"I knew you'd worry; that's the on-
ly reason I didn't go out for it."
"Oh, there's a man in uniform;
I'm so thankful you're not in service,
Bertie. I'd go wild if I thought you were
in one of those horrid uncomfortable
camps, sleeping with a lot of other

people in one of those little cat tents,
or is it dog tents?'
"Yes, I knew thinking of it would
be hard on you; that was one of the
Big Reasons why I didn't enlist."
"Don't the yell-master look cold,
Berte? I'm grateful you're not one.
I'd always be afraid of your catching
pneumonia and dying."
"Of course, I considered that. I see
your side of it. I had the position
hocked, but it's a dangerous one, and
-are you cold, dear?"
"No, that is, not very."
"I'll just put this blanket right up
around your little ears."
Some people got up and went home
in disgust and turned-up collars. Af-
ter a while the game was finished and
the rest of the sordid crowd moved
down. They stayed on, alone in the
big stand.
That was what they had been wait-
ing for.
They are probably still there.
I hope they drown and go to-
So they lived on.

That Pennsylvania's eleven will
rnish opposition to the Wolverines
strong as Nebraska did was the
atement of Assistant-Coach Douglass
ho witnessed the Penn-Pittsburgh
ay Saturday.'
Penn has a light line and a heavy
ckfield," said the assistant coach
sterday afternoon. "The team i
mposed of green men for the most
rt but veterans like Berry, Light,
d Wray give balance to the aggega-
n. The' players are comers and by
e time to play them in November
ey will be at the top of their game.
"The Penn players always fight par-
11larly hard against Michigan and
they are able to put up any more
a battle against us than they did
ainst Pitt, we will have some fight
our hands. Their forwards scrap-
d from start to finish, and the offen-
built around Berry, showed signs
possessing real strength.
Mwhigau Has Edge
'Still I feel that we hold the edge
er them in form showntsofar this
afr. I did not see our team in the
braska game,but judging from what
lave seen and from the form shown
the men in the workouts, I should
ige that we hold the balance of
wer. Still it will be no easy game,
d we will have to play at our best
order to keep our slate clean."
[n the absence of Coach Yost who
ts out of town, Douglass took charg3
thes Varsity yesterday afternoon.
le men were given only a light work-
t as they have had only one day in
Oich to rest up from their strenuous
tying in the Cornhusker tilt. None
the men injured Saturday showed
y signs of wear although Rye did
t appear for practice.
ohn, whose injuries had practical-
healed, suffered a set-back when he
,pped and fell as he was coming
v'u from the lecture room in the
bhouse. Cohn aggravated some old
funds and may be on the ;hospital
for a couple of days more be-
use of his spill.
Sparks Coming Fast
Sparks and Wieman took turns at
cting during the workout and both
>wed improvement in their form.

his regular form against Cornell
it Pennsylvania. He showed his
I skill in forward passing yesterday
ring practice.
Yost is expected back some time to.
r and the squad will probably be
t through some strenuous scrim-
ge work this week. Yost has only
3 Kalamazoo College game on top
the week-end, and it is not ex-
Ated that this game will furnish any
.1 opposition. Douglass lctured the
yers yesterday on the Penn plays'
L formations.

Tank Wieman
Walter Eckersall, the West's biggest
sport critic, in Monday's Chicago Tri-
bune gave Tank Wieman the following
writeup after he had witnessed the
big boy's performance against the
Cornhuskers last Saturday.
As has been the case in most big
games so far this season, there was
one player who stood out, and it was
mainly through his offensive and de-
fensive playing that Michigan was the'
victor. In Tad Tank Wieman, full
back, Yost has as good a back as there
is in the west. There is nothing in
football that Wieman cannot do and
do well.
. Saturday he scored fourteen of Mich
igan's points. He made one touch-
down, two goals from the field, and
kicked two goals after touchdowns. He
can run the ends or hit the line for
gains, does the punting, and is 'a
strong defensive man. Tad Wieman
weighs 185 'pounds. He certainly is
the backbone of the team.
Women Athletes Brave Perils of Rainy
Weather for Outdoor Pass.
Anticipation seems to be the only
active sport for women these days,
unless aquatic activities be mentioned,
such as the hike to Dixboro last Sat-
urday morning. Owing to the scarc-
ity of gum boats, in war times, only
a limited number made the trip, but
from all reports, the affair made quite
a splash in the annals of the Women's
athletic association.
On Saturday morning also, a few
fair hockey enthusiasts quietly slipped
over to the field for a little secret
practice-and continued to slip. The
consensus of opinion seems to be that
these muddy feats tend to try the dis-
positions, rather than the athletic
prowess .of the participants.
But then, it is only a case of "Wait
till the sun shines, Nellie," and once
more can be heard the click of hockey
sticks, and the wail of that tennis
champ from Jumpoff Junction, who
has just discovered that she is not the
only .one in captivity.
A skull painted on a "Bad Turn"
sign, acts as a warning to reckless
autoists and careless pedestrians to
slow up on one of the streets near the
campus df Indiana university.
