Varsity Sent Through Scrimmage Yes-
terday for First Time Since
Season Started
The Michigan-Chicaga post-season
football game seems almost sure to be
played following the favorable expres-
sions of opinion by Coach Yost of the
Michigan football team and prominent
Chicago alumni.
Coach Yost declared yesterday aft-
ernoon that although he would in no
way be responsible for the scheduling
of the contest, he would like to have
an opportunity to play Stagg's war-
riors some time this season. The
opinion from Chicago is heartily in
favor of the tilt, and the final arrange-
ments now await the decision of the
faculty of the Windy City institution.
The members of the Wolverine foot-
ball team greeted the news of the pro-
posed Chicago game eagerly and de-
clared to a man that they would con-
sider. the time well spent in pre-
paring for such a game. Although this
contest would be the eleventh on the
Michigan schedule for the year, there
is not a man on the Michigan squad
who would not be willing to under-
go anything for a chance to play Chi-
Board Awaits Invitation
As soon as an invitation is extended
Michigan by the Chicago faculty to
play this game, the Michigan board in
control of athletics will meet to pass
upon the contest. "'From the expres-
lions already made, the matter seems
sure of passage if ever it reaches the

Kalamazoo, Mich., Nov. 1.-With a
cold north wind sweeping over the
field Coach Young sent'- his squad
through a rapid drill of signals, punts,
and a light scrimmage. The Coach tried
out several of the substitutes whom
he expects to send into the game
against the Wolverines Saturday, and
was pleased with their aggressive
fighting spirit.
Coach Young refuses to predict the
showing which his squad will make
in Saturday's game but has voiced the
hopes that the score will be a small
one. With two of his veterahs called
into the national army last Saturday,
he is endeavoring to fill their places
with the strongest men on the reserve
squad. At present he is thinking of
shifting one of the veteran linemen to
the end position left vacant by Brack-
ett but after today's scrimmage he an-
nounced that Tapley will be at the
flanking position and Mishica at tackle.
Strome, the all M. I. A. A. fullback,
is in perfect condition and the pow-
erful line plunger will be troublesome
for the Wolverine linemen. Fausch
at right tackle and Read at center
will be the mainstays of the Kazoo
team and the playing of these veterans
should help to keep the score low.
The Kalamazoo rooters will come t3

Coach Steve Farrell and his pro-
teges will leave for East Lansing
this afternoon and will arrive there
in the evening. The men will rest up
during the night in order to be in
good trim. The meet will start at
10:30 o'clock and will probably be
over by noon. Michigan's hill-and-
dalers will watch the M. A. C.-Kalam-
azoo Normal game in the afternoon
and will return to Ann Arbor in the
A large number of institutions will
compete in this meet. Last year 40
teams were entered. Among those to
compete in this year's contest are, M.
A. C., Albion, Kalamazoo, and Olivet.
Michigan has encountered very lit-
tle difficulty in winning this event in
the last two years and at the present
moment has two legs on the cup which
is being offered to the competitors by
the Michigan Aggies. If the Wolverines
succeed in romping home in first plac,
this year the trophy will come to Ann
Arbor to stay.
Eddie Carroll, captain of the Varsity
track team last year led the entire field
to the tape in the 1916 fete. If the
men show up' well in this event, Coach-
Farrell will have reason to believe
that he will enter a winning team in
the conference meet at Evanston on
Nov. 24.

The game, from all appearairces,
would be played in Chicago. The pur-
pose of the contest is to raise money
for war charities and more people
could be crowded into a field in Chi-
cago and more money thus raised?
than could be in Ann Arbor.
Scrimmage Held Yesterday
Yesterday afternoon Yost gave his
first squad the first scrimmage held
since the season started. A team made
up of reserve men on the first squad
met the scrub eleven in a short game
and managed to come away with, a
6 to 6 tie. Beath, playing center for
the Varsity and Emery, pivot man for
the scrubs, scored the touchdowns,
each man recovering a fumble and rac-
ing for a counter.
Yost was not at all pleased with the
showing of his men and said after the
scrimmage that there would have to
be an improvement or else Cornell
would walk all over the Michigan
team. The members of the squad are
determined to fight to the last agains
the Ithaca eleven and said they were
merely taking things easy now to rest
up for this contest.
Yost lined the Varsity up as follows:
Bonar, I.e.; Morrison, 1.t.; Culver, l.g.;
Beath, c.; Fortune, r.g.; Weske, r.t.;
Cartwright, r.e.; Wellford, q.; Cruse,
l.h.; Genebach, r.h.; Garrett, f.b.
Yost Expects Hard Games Ahead
Yost said yesterday that he did not
look for an easy time from Cornell
and Northwestern, considered from the
dope the two easiest teams Michigan
has yet to face after Kalamazoo col-
lege Saturday. These teams from Ith-
aca and Evanston are aiming at the
Wolverine tilt and the team will have
to plug ahead as it did against Ne-
braska in order to satisfy the Mich-
igan mentor.
Kalamazoo college comes Saturday
afternoon, and though this aggregation
has made a fair showing for the sea-
son, it is not expected to prove a
stumbling block to the Wolverines.
Isadore Stark, '20, Goes to Hospital
Isadore Stark, '20, was sent to the
University hospital yesterday where he
will be treated for tonsilitis.

Clifford Spark,
The women think he is cute but the
men think Cliff is the best quarterback
that has donned the Michigan football
suit for many a year.
Rumors were circulating about the
campus two years go to watch this
man Sparks, quarterback for the All-
fresh. When the yearlings played their
first game on Ferry field that year
Cliff certainly did come up to the ex-
pectations of the Michigan rooters.
His field running and generalship sur-
passed that of the Varsity quarters
and his playing brought press notice.3
from every sporting page in the West.
Last year Sparks was the mainstay
of the team and the opposing teams
had built their defense in an endeav-
or to stop the speedy quarter, but
Cliff by his dodging and speed many
a time made first down. Judging frorni
his remarkable playing last year
many sport critics considered him in
line for a position on the All-American
this year.
Cliff comes from the Prison city,
played football on the high school for
four years, and gained the reputa-
tion of being the best player that
Jackson has turned out. He- dallied
in other sports but his name is link-
ed always with football.
Cliff has won his freshman numerals
and one "M" and has prospects of
making two more "M's" at least. An
injury has put the quarter on the hos-
pital list but when the east invades
Ferry field Sparks is on the receiving
committee and extends his heartiest
welcome to them.
May Reduce Size of Ball Clubs
Cleveland, O., Nov. 1.- As a war-
time measure, the American league
probably will cut its player limit to
20 or 21 men next season, according to
James C. Dunn, president of the Cleve-
land club. The question will be settled
at the annual meeting of the league
to be held in Chicago the latter part
of this month.
Dunn believes that all of the clubs
are carrying too many pitchers and
that each team can reduce its roster
without imparing its strength. Six
pitchers are sufficient for any major
league club, he believes, providing
the six are willing to work and keep
in condition.
"With a schedule calling for 140
games," Dunn said, "it will be im-
possible to get along with fewer men.
I think, we all carry too many play-
ers. It is my belief that a club does
its best work when a manager works
four pitchers in rotation and keeps two
in reserve."
