SJust 24 hours before Cornell ap-
pears on Ferry field to do battle with
Michigan, the Wolverines are confident
of success.
The fighting spirit which prevailed
in the Nebraska tilt two weeks ago
a'nd which made the indifferent Michi-
gan team look like the best in the
country, is again in evidence and the
Michigan players who take the field
Saturday will be fighting from start
to finish.
Coach Yost declared yesterday aft-
ernoon that his. men were "going over
the top after the Red men," and As-
sistant-coach Douglass followed Yost's
statement with a "and we're going to
bring back some scalps." This spirit
prevails in the Wolverine camp.
The sentiment among the members
of the Varsity is that there will be
considerable revenge gained Saturday
for the defeats administered the Mich-
1gan team in the past few years. In,
1916 Cornell snatched a victory from
the Wolve ines when Maulbetsch's, ag-
gregation was leading by a big margin
and . this defeat along with another
which came when Michigan was un-
doubtedly superior, will be avenged,
according to the Wolverines.
Expect 25,000 Crowd
The demand for tickets for the
Cornell game has far exceeded the ex-
pectations of the Athletic association
-offlcials and it now appears that out-
side of a few tickets returned from
Cornell and those held for gate sale,
there will be no pasteboards avail-
able within a few hours. The at-
tendance is going to be close to 25,000
according to all the information ob-
tainable.
Trainer Harry Tutbtll announced
last night that all of the 11 men Yost
wants to use at the start of the game
against Cornell will be on hand ,In
shape to play. Cohn is the only man
not in condition and he will Ike ready
for Penn. The rest of the players,
aside from a few bruises, are in good
form.
Yost will use the same lineup that

These three men are the best in Cornell's backfield, Nethercott playing qluarter, Hoffman and Van Horn, halves.
Van Horn has been on the hospital list for the past few days and although he will not start the game, he will
get in at some stage, according to Coach Sharpe. Hoffman Is the man upon whom the lied offense hinges, his
line smashes and Nethercott's end runs forming the basis of the Cornell attack,

This team weighs 177 pounds to the
man; the backfield coming in for close
to 168 pounds to the man and the line
from.end to end weighing 183 pounds
on the average. Cornell will start a
heavy team also and there will be no
material advantage either way.

BRYAN HAS NARROW ESCAPE
FROM ENRAGED WILD BULL
Chandler, Ariz Nov. 8.-William J.
Bryan, former secretary of state, was
recently saved from a wild bull by the
presence of a mosquito tree on the des-
ert near here.
Mr. Bryan and R. A. Hayward, sup-
erintendent of the Pima Indian reser-
vation, who were duck hunting when
they were chased by the animal, suc-
ceded in reaching the mosquito tree.
Other mepmbers of the hunting party
shot and killed the enraged creature.
Mr. Bryan was unhurt but lopt most

CORNELL SENDS 21 MEN
FOR MICHIGAN CONTEST
TEAM NOT LOOKING FOR A VIC-
TORY, BUT HOPE FOR
LOW SCORE
Ithaca, N. Y., Nov. 8.-Coach Al
Sharpe will start with a squad of 21
Cornell gridders for Ann Arbor Friday
afternoon. Hoffman, Pendleton, Cross,
Nethercott, Carry, Colvin, Ackernicht,
Straus, Reuther, Harriman, Swanson,
Harris, Schmitt, Eisenbrandt, Miner,
Huntington, Thomas, S. Trowbridge,
A. B. Trowbridge, Spiegelberg, and
Petrie are the men who will make
the trip.
Van Horn, the Red's- star halfback,
is still on the hospital list, but will
probably accompany the team and
if necessary will get into play to-
ward the end of the game. Cross, the
man who starred in the Carnegie-
Tech game last Saturday, will hold
down Van Horn's position.
The Cornell warriors do not expect
to carry off the bacon, but are confi-
dent of holding the Wolverines to a
low count. The Reds' line so far this
season has been the weakest part of
the team and Dr. Sharpe is doing his
best to strengthen it by the addition
oft beefy men.
The loss of Van Horn in the back-
field will materially weaken the Ith-
arans' attack, but if Cross plays the
way he did against the Pittsburg ag-
gregatign he will fit well .into the
shoes of the sturdy little halfback.
Coach Sharpe has been giving his
men nothing but light workout all
week in an effort to keep the casual-
ties as low as possible.
Camp Custer Men To Attend Game
Under command of General Dick-
man the 85th team division from Camp
Custer will arrive in Ann Arbor Satur-
day on a special train to see the Mich-
igan-Cornell game, as .guests of the
Athletic Association. They will be ac-
companied by five French officers and
five English officers, all of whom have
seen first line fighting in France.
Dispense With Women's League Circus
On account of the war relief work
which claims the extra time of Michi-
gan women, the annual circus of the
Women's league will be dispensed
with for this year.

COACH FAILS TO LOCATE

Lack of Dependable Furnishes Anoth-.
er Problem for the Yearlings'
Mentor
All efforts have been given up by
the freshman coach to find a plung-
ing back. After trying every man
on his squad at the full back position
Mitchell intends to leave the present
backfield intact, Urschell, Usher, Reed,
and Bailey.
Much time has been spent by the.
freshmen in developing a goal kicker
and a man to kick off, since Fletcher
the regular booter has been disabled.
Peocock shows the most promise in
starting the ball from the 40-yard line
and Usher, Urschell, and MacNilchol
are still fighting it out for the right
to add the extra point after each
touchdown the team scores against
the Notre Dame yearlings.
Last night was spent in a rehash of
the fundamentals of the game. Kick-
