"You know we are liable to wake up

- Since the sentiment at Cornell is
similar to that here and both teams
feel that their chance for victory lies
in their fighting spirit, the game will
be one of the hardest fought of the 1917
season. Michigan's power is admitte
u."but Cornell has been improving rapid-
jly and the changes Sharpe is making
will ,throwa beefy team against the
' Wolverines.
Backs Expected to Star
Yost is expecting great things of
his backfield. Weston and Sparks
ought to be as great an offensive duo
as ever fought for the Maize and Blue,
x 'according to the Michigan mentor, and
with Wieman to buck the line and
Hanish to smash off tackle in the man-
ner that has made these men excellent
players this season, Yost has a power-
ful attack.
Weston and Sparks will take care
of the open work of the team. Both of
these men are fast, clever runners,
and dangerous in a broken field. The'
will be on the receiving end of the
1 : punts' and any sort of a start will en-
able them to get away for a long run.
Cornell's tackles must be swift and
sure if the Red men are to stop the

Ithaca, N. Y., Nov. 7.-Coach Sharpe
sent his gridders through a long scrim-
mage against the scrubs today in an
endeavor to bolster up the Cornell line
of attack against the Wolverines pow-
erful backfield. The Varsity scored
against the scrubs, but the showing is
not up to the standard of the pre-
vious teams that have played the Yost
aggregation. Evidently the Cornell
coaches were not satisfied with the
playing of the meen, as they promiseda
the squad similar practice for today.
The Cornell mentor tonight would
not venture a prediction as to the out-
come of Saturday's clash, except thAt
he would only expect the Red anc
White team to hold the Wolverines to
a small score. It is also a doubtful
proposition among the rooters if the
present Varsity can crush the Wolver-
ine hopes, as the team is far inferior
to the teams that have been beaten by
Michigan and it lacks the fighting
spirit. Still, luck may play an import-
ant part in the coming struggle and1
a duplicate of last fall's victory be1
handed to the Wolverines.
A weak line is the biggest problem
that confronts the Red and White
coaches as shown in yesterday's scrim-
mage when Minier and Carry of the]
second team repeatedly plowedx
through the tackles and guards for
large gains. Ackerkneckt, Wipperman,
Schmidt and Herriman were given a
strenuous drill in the line, but failedt
to stop the scrubs, especially on the
outside tackle play, which Coach

Sharpe has always used since he came
to Cornell. Colvin at left end is a
star and will take care of his flank
position in good style, but Eisenbrandt
at the other flank is too small and
light, so the coaches contemplate shift-
ing Harris from guard to the end job
and putting Swanson in at guard.
This change may xe~aken the line, but'
Swanson's weight, 95 pounds, will off-
set his inexperinc'c.
Van Horn is still c:, e hospital list.
but he will taok tho i rip to Ann Arbor
and may be used in extreme emerg-
ency. Cross, the new star discovered
in the Tech game, did equally as well
in today's scrimmage, breaking
through for two runs totaling 35 yards.
Pendleton, Nethercott and Hoffman ap-
peared in good condition and tore off
some good gains.
Colvin grabbed two forward passes
out of five attempts over the line. Th.,
scrubs confined their attack to straight
line plunging.
Tennis T ourney
Finals Saturday
The finals in the tennis tournament
will be played Saturday on the Ferry
field tennis courts, weather permitting.
Little interest has been shown' in
the double matches, and if they are to
be played on the same day the men
will have to get together soon.
But one match was played yesterday
in the singles, Bartz defeating Angell
in straight sets 7-5, 6-1. This brings
Bartz to the third round and he will
meet the winner of the Hummer-Bump-
us match. Should Bartz win this
match he will be slated against Hamer
in the semi-finals, while Steketee will
meet Egbert.

dll/ Fortune

Billy Fortune is one of the four soph-
omores that have made good on Yost's
squad this year.
He earned his right to a berth on
the regulars against a strong field of
competition by his fighting spirit. The
husky guard, though lacking the ex-
perience of his teammates, is consist-
ent hard blocker.
Bill tips the scale close to the two
century mark but on account of his
stocky build looks small and is the
big little man on Yosts aggregation.
Bill received his first schooling on
the Springfield high school football
team which defeated the strong team,
of the northern Illinois. He played
center and guard on the team and last
year in the early season was made a
regular guard on the All-fresh team,
On the yearling eleven Bill earned the
favorable comment of the Varsity
coaches and his appearance on the
field this year bolstered up the pro-
spects of a strong Michigan line.
The guard position is one of hard
knocks and little glory, but to the
rooters "number 7" has been down thf;
field among the first ones on the punts.
In the blocking game and charging
the husky guard has shown consider-
able power and played a stellar game
against the much touted Detroiters
who were unable to pierce the Wol-
verine line on their off-center plays.
Fortune has two more seasons with
the Varsity and ought to develop into a
lineman of Aqua Allmendinger type.
In Saturdlay 's game he is slated to
play against Swanson who replaces
Harris the regular guard and from
press reports Swanson is the huskiest
man on the Red and White eleven.
The Northwestern eleven has had
only one home game thus far, the an-
nual practice tilt with Lake Forrest-
but student interest in the fortunes of
the team is as intense as usual and
when the purple finally appears on its
own field the attendance is expected
to be up to the standard.
