injuring his men on the eve of the big

Ithaca, N. Y., Nov. 5.-With a full
squad ready to be drilled at top speed,
Coach Sharpe ran the team through a
long session of signals, punts, forward
pass formations, and scrimmage to-
day. All the regulars and scrubs were
out in suits and several of the cripples
who were unable to play in last Sat-
urday's game were'placed in the regu-
lar line up and went through the hard
drill session without showing signs of
fatigue or lameness. Coach Sharpe
spent part of the afternoon's practice
in showing the line their weaknesses
on the offensive as was plainly seen
in the Carnegie Tech. game.
Special attention was given to Cross
by the coach, as this man in Satur-
day's battle was the brilliant star of
the game. When Van Horn, the reg-
ular left half, was injured, but not
seriously, in the second period of the
Tech. game, Cross was sent in to re-
place him. Cross covered 125 yards
of ground in ten scrimmages and was
only thrown for a loss twice, which
was due to the poor playing of the line
which let the Tech. players break
through and grab him before he was

Soldiers Will Come
A special train from Camp Custer
will bring a number of soldiers to the
game, while Major General Dickman,
who will come escorted by his staff,
will be the guest of honor of the ath-
letic association. A capacity crowd
is expected to be on hand when the
whistle blows.
Big things are expected of Michi-
gan's backfield in this game. The
Weston, Wieman combination has been
strengthened, by the addition of
Sparks, while Hanish, the fourth mem-
btr of the attacking. quartette, is a
marvel op defense and in blocking.
The whole backfield is one of the best
that Yost has had to work with in
years, and with Genebach, Froemke,
Cohn, Cruse, Rye, and Garrett in re-
serve, Yost has a strong list of avail-
able substitutes.
Cohn Choice For End
Yose is still undecided as to the
man to play left end. Goetz, who has
been holding down this position, slow-
ed up the last game and Cohn may get
in at this position. Cohn is the more
experienced player of the two, Goetz
having played end for the first time at
the start of the season. Boyd is pret-
ty sure to start at right end.
The members of the second squad
have caught the tenseness of the situ-
ation and are putting a iew spirit into
their play. They realize that they
must fight as they did aganst the
Cornhuskers in order to win the game
with Cornell, and every men on the
team is ready to up put his share of
the battle.

Forty-five men reported to Coach
Mitchell last night in a meeting held,
in Waterman gymnasium for candi-
datts for the varsity basket ball squad.
The coach is encouraged over the
number that turned out and thinks the
first team will give a good account of
At least twelve men will report from
the football squad as soon as the sea-
son is over, these including Hanish,
Weiman, Sparks, Cohn, and Froemke.
"The Aaterial," says Mitchell, "looks
good, and will have to be good to make
a showing against the stiff competi-
tion that they will meet."
Men who have had much experience
and who should make a hard fight
for a place on the squad are: Rowley,
Bartz, Weathers, Edison, Hewlett,
McClintock, Borinstein and Rennel.
The coach told the boys that during
the season there should be no danc-
ing and no smoking, as both tend to
use up the energy and shorten the
wind. "Basket ball," says the Coach,
"ranks second to football in the West,
and now that Michigan is to have a
conference schedule there is but one
thing to do and that is to have a team
that will fight, and this is possible on-
ly by having men train as the foot
ball men do."
The first practice will be held to-
night at 8 o'clock, which will last on-
ly half an hour. Half hour practices
will continue until after Christmas,
when they will be made longer.
All men who wish to try out for as-
sistant basket ball manager will meet

the winners of these two matches will
fight to see who meets Hamer, while
Steketee takes on Egbert for the semi-

of the score in his match with Angell
and will probably beat the winner of
