Coach Stewart Criticizes Lack of Pro-
per Spirit Displayed by Sup-
A letter received from Coach Stew-
art, of the Nebraska team, pays a great
compliment to the Michigan eleven and
to Coach Fielding H. Yost.
Part of the letter follows: "You
may quote me as saying that Michigan1
University has a team which she
should be proud of. Unless the boys,
become over-confident, I can see noth-
ing but victory ahead. You have a
remarkable coach who has turned out
some wonderful teams. In fact it is
really a miracle that Coach Yost,
should succeed so well in developing
such a team and priming them com-
pletely for Nebraska." /
In another part of the letter, Dr.;
Stewart criticises the spirit of "the1
student body, alumni and down-town]
business men" who, according to state-a
ment made to him, are not backing4
"Michigan students and supporters,"
Stewart says, "would really consider9
themselves fortunate if they had an in-1
side knowledge concerning the narrowl
escape from defeat which Michigan
had last Saturday, due to alleged ex-
perts criticising their coach, and there-
by creating lack of confidence in the
minds of the players."t

Coach Mitchell has issued his first
call for Varsity basketball material
so early in the season because he
wants to get a line on some of the men
before the rush which will inevitably
come with the ena of the football sea.

it now stands calls for two contests be-
Dore the Christmas vacation.
Mitchell expects to divide the squad
into three sections so that he can de-
vote his time to individual coaching
of some of the prospects. These squads
will meet at different hours at night so
that it behooves everyone interested
to come out tonight and get an assign

make any cuts in the squad before the
end of the month in order to give
every man a fair chance to show his

Farrell Offers No
Alibi for Team
Harriers Preparing For Harpham
Trophy Contest on
Nov. 17
"No excuses are to be made for our
defeat. The best. team won," was the
way Steve Farrell dismissed the sub-
ject of the Michigan State cross coun-
try meet held at Lansing, Saturday.
When M. A. C. took first place, in
the hill-and-dale run last Saturday
morning they got their first hold on
one leg of the cup which the Agricul-
tural college put up three years ago,
for the first school that won the state
meet three times. So far Michigan has
two wins to her credit for this cup and
the Farmers but this one. With a
victory next year the cup will come to
Ann Arbor to remain permanently.

get them in shape for their Conference

opponents. He will put the boys

has not underestimated the strength
of the Wolverine team, and this early
in the week does not expect victory,
but hopes for at least a tie game.

Second String Men Drop Scrimmage
Tussle to Varsity $e-
Two weeks will elapse before the
freshmen play their next and last game
of the season, with the Notre. Dame
yearlings. As a result Coach Mitch-
ell's men are taking things easy. Few
members of the first team put in an
appearance for practice last night and
those that did were left off early.
The second team men scrimmaged
the Varsity reserves for an hour, to al-.
low the freshmen coach to try his
subs out at different positions, and
the first year men went down to defeat
by a matter of two touchdowns.
Fletcher, acting captain of the yearl-
ings, who broke his collar-bone in
Saturday's runaway with the Michigan
Military Academy, will be out of the
game for the remainder of the fall. It
is possible that he might be in shape
for the scrap with the South Bend
team, but no chances are going to be
taken with him., The yearling looks
like next year's Varsity stuff and he
isn't to be hurt permanently.
Other than he and Boville who sus-
tained a strained ligament none of the
team suffered any ill effects from the
struggle against the cadets. The right
end will be in shape again in a few

practice some hard workouts are in

sent season.

Weske is one of Yost's veteran line-
man and around this man the Wolver-
ine coach has built a veritable stone-
wall. Dick, is now a seasoned Wol-
verine and has born the brunt of
all the center rushes that the oppon-
tents have hurled at him for three
years. He has often penetrated
through the opposing linemen on the
defensive and tackled the safety as
he returned a punt. The linemen to
the average rooter does not figure in
the praise and hero worship but it is
through their steady and unyielding
playing that the backfield men make
gains through the opponents' line.
Dick played four years on his high
school football team which in his jun-'
ior year won the championship of3
eastern Conneticut. In his senior year
they were defeated for the champion-
ship of the state and eastern New
The first year at Michigan Dick con-E
fined his efforts to class football and
the fresh engineers were given their
numerals that year. The followingf
year Weske came out for Yost's elev-
en and earned his "M" against a
strong field of competition. Last year
and this, Weske has been the main-
stay of the right side of the line and
the husky boy is playing a stellar
game at the right tackle position. No.
31 can be seen at the bottom of the
pile in every play and judging from
the big tackle's performance Satur-
day he will receive a chance in carry-
ing the ball nearer to the Michigan
goal line in the coming struggles.
This is Weske's third year on the
Varsity and rooters will miss him next
year as his vacancy will be a difficult
position to fill.
War has caused a slight falling off
in attendance at football games at
Ohio State university, but it has not
diminished in the slightest the spirit
of the rooters.
The attendance at the first two
games was about the same as at the
first two games last year, but the
spectators at the second two games
were fewer-and this in addition to
the fact that Ohio State has a cham-
pionship team this year and did not
have one last year. The falling off
in attendance, however, has not been
