BA,1TTLE SAYS YOST
Big I-ed Team Will Be Primed For the

VARSITY PRACTICES IN SNOW
AND WIND THAT SWEEPS FIELD
Michigan Mentor Not Looking For
Easy Time With Opponents
Left On Schedule
A strong, cold wind and a hurri-
cane of snow failed to keep Yost's
gridde s from several long hours of
practice yesterday afternoon on Fer-
ry field.
The Michigan mentor, who return-
ed to Ann Arbor for the workout,
sent the men through punting and
passing practice and signal drill.
Sparks and Wieman spent a long time
booting the ball and practiced get-
ting off kicks in the face of the wind.
The Varsity scrubs were sent in
against the freshman eleven and
Coach Yost spent a long time look-
ing over the work of both teams.
There are several men on the scrubs
who might be brought back to the
first team, while some of the year-
lings have been under Yost's eye for
a long time.
Yesterday afternoon Coach Yost de-
clared that the showing of the Michi-
gan eleven in the Nebraska game was
as surprising as it was pleasing to
him. He found little to criticise about
the playing and said that it was truly
marvelous.
But the Michigan coach was strong
in his statement that the showing of
Saturday did not mean a loaf the rest
of the season. Yost said that in the
last few years he has seen but three
games like the Nebraska contest. One
came in 1910 against Minnesota, one
in 1913 against Cornell, and the last
in 1914 against Penn. In all of these
games the Wolverines fought like
men possessed of some new kind of
fighting blood and their play was sur-
prising in its fierceness and quality.
Still following these games the
teams did not do as well as everyone
expected they would. In 1914, after
walloping Penn, the Wolverines let
Cornell push them from the field, and
according to Yost, they seemed to
like being shoved about. Yost is
hopeful for a big season and believes
there is power and fight in the team,
but realizes that he will have to keep
working to prevent the men slipping
back into a rut.
Cornell will not be such a mean op-
ponent despite the dope which gives
htem a poor team. The Michigan
coaching staff is of the opinion that
the Big Red men will come to Ferry
Field November 10 all primed for a
hard contest and they will be ready
to fight to the last ditch before con-
ceding any victory to Michigan. Penn
is still the hardest game on the Mich-
igan schedule, but Cornell will not
prove to be easy.
Yost has been promising scrim-
magetfor several days and yesterday
afternoon said that his Varsity might
get in a little rough work today. If
It does, it will be the first time this
season that the regulars have scrim-
maged. Yost having been kept from
this sort of practice by injuries and
mid-week games.

KAULMIZOO COLLEGE IS
GETTING__PESSIMISTIC
FEAR FOR WORST IN GAME WITH
MICHIGAN SATURDAY AT
FERRY FIELD
Kalamazoo, Mich., Oct. 30.- Pess-
imism .pervades through the Kalam-
azoo college camp since the accounts
of Michigan's victory over the Ne-
braskan gridders upset all dope on
the strength of the Wolverine eleven.
The Kazoo gridders are practicing
daily not with any hopes of winning
from the Michigan squad but in an at-
tempt to keep the score lower than
their worthy rivals, the Normals, had
piled against them by the Yostians,
two weeks ago.
The Kazoo gridders met defeat at the
hands of the Camp Custer eleven but
the cantonment team is of exceptional
strength having several ex-university
players including Miller, and Deprato,
The Kazoo coach is drilling his men
in the forward pass phase of the game
and is patching up the weak points
in the line.
The regulars are all in good con-
dition and unless the jinx hits some
of the Kazoo warriors in scrimmages
this week the college team will pres-
ent its most formidable lineup on
Ferry field next Saturday.

Diekema of the scrubs hurt his
ankle in the fray and will be kept
out of the game for several weeks.
Little is known of the Michigan Mil-
itary academy eleven, which the fresh-
men play next Saturday. There is
usually a strong team in this school
and to make sure of a victory, Mitchell
will keep his men working hard for
the remainder of the week.
PFick Men To Run,
In Lansing Meet
Steve Farrell Selects Men After Race
Over Michigan Course Yes-
terday
Eight "hill-and-dalers" braved the
snow and cold weather yesterday to
compete for Varsity honors. Sedgwick.
Meehan, Fuess, Maynard, Stoll, and
Buell were the first six men to romp
home after taking the long jaunt
through the country, and will repre-
sent the University of Michigan at the
state meet at East Lansing next Sat-
urday morning. Batty and Wheeler
came in a little too late to qualify.
The team as chosen today will prob-
ably not be the team that will repre-
sent the Wolverines in the conference
meet at Evanston on Nov. 24. Steve
Farrell expects to make several chang-
es befort that time. Red Donnelley did
not compete in yesterday's race be-
case he was not in condition. Red
is coming around though and the
coach expects to have the old Varsity
man in shape to run in the confer-
ence meet.
Besides Donnelley, Steve 'Farrell
has some new material on the squad
that is showing a fine brand of cross
country endurance. Langley, Rolls,
Walker, Phelps, and Boyd are all con-
tenders for berth on the team.
Germans are experimenting with a
tank armed with 3-inch cannon and
machine guns.
The United States government pre-
dicts that war expenses for the fiscal
year 1918-19 will aggregate $20,000,-

Alan W. Boyd
Alan W. Boyd, hailing from the
Hoosier state, is now one of Yost's
Wolverine converts and the most ver-
satile lineman on the team. "Number
3," as he is known to the rooter in the
stands, has born the brunt of Coach
Yost's general shakeups playing guard,
tackle and in the Nebraska game was
shifted to end to strengthen the de-
fense attack, and the forward pass
formations. After the Nebraska game
the sport critics commented favorably
on the attack of Yost's alleged weak
flankers.
Boyd received his early education in
Shortridge high school tdianapo-
lis and gained prominence for his abil-
ity in track and basketball but it was
at Michigan that he recived his first
lessons in football. He has been on
Yost's squad for three seasons and has
made one "R," one "M," and will get
his "M" this year and is in line for
the All-western football team. In
class football he played onl the '18 lit
team which won the interclass cham-
pionship in 19.5, and in '16 and '17,
won their num rals.
That Alan W. Boyd is somewhat of
a student besides being a football man
is shown in Coach Yost's remark "that
Boyd had made more honor points
in his first year than the entire foot-
ball team put together." Boyd is en-
rolled in the Law school.

Playing in the bitter cold on South
Ferry field, the freshman fottball team
went down to defeat before the Var-
sity reserves last night, 12 to 0.
The two counters came in the first
15 minutes of play, when Mitchell was
giving some of the yearlings who did
not have much of a chance in the game
Saturday, an opportunity to show their
wares. After several of the regulars
were sent into the lineup, the defense
tightened considerably, and the scrubs
were held scoreless for the rest of
the battle.
