TEAM'S CHOICE CENTERS AROUND
SPARKS, BOYD, AND
When it comes to selecting a cap-
tain for next year's Varsity football
team, one of three men will probably
be the choice of the 18 "M" men who

able not alone of representing Mich-
igan on the lined field but of leading
the Wolverine team in battle.
At different times this past season,
in the absence of Captain-elect Smith,
Wieman and Boyd have acted as lead-
ers of the Yostmen. They have called
the flip of the coin at the start of
the game and they have aided in di-
recting the team's attack during the
Sparks Handicapped by Injuries
Sparks, had it not been for his
injuries, would have undoubtedly beep
given the privilege of leading the Maize
and Blue eleven into battle in some
of the games the past fall. He, with
Wieman and Boyd, is ranked as one of
the veterans and stars of the Wolver-

made. Wieman, Boyd, and Sparks are
eligible and are ready - to lead the
Varsity next fall.
The spirit and form shown by these
men in the past two seasons is such
that Michigan's welfare can rest safe-
ly in the hands of any one of the trio.
No matter who is finally selected as
captain, there is no doubt but that he
can prove to be as capable a leader
as Michigan ever had.
Wieman All-around Star
Wieman played one year at tackle
and cavorted the past season at full-
back. In both positions he has shown
real ability and according to the Mich-
igan coaches he could be classed as a
real star in any position he played
provided he is given sufficient time
to learn the duties of the job. Wieman
came to Michigan ignorant of foot-
ball played according to American
style, but he has learned rapidly, and
Walter Eckersall, football star him-
self, declared that Tank is a . star of
the highest water.
Boyd a Hard Fighter
Boyd was a guard last fall and play-

himself willing and eager to play any
position and has been a star wherever
he has been placed. He has fought

boasts, has been handicapped during
his two years on the Varsity by in-
juries. When he has been able to
play he has proved himself a wonder-
ful man with the ball, running hard
and easily and ranking among the best
in every department of the game.

MEN THROUGH SCRIMAGE
Eartz and Ruzieka Show Up Best in
Workout in Waterman Gym-
Coach Mitchell picked two Varsity
teams and pitted thern against in-
eligibles and freshmen last night. The
playing of the Varsity men left much
to be desired, the passing being par-
ticularly ragged. The lack of scoring,
however, can be largely attributed to
the fact that they were trying out a
new defensive system which the coach
just gave them.
On one team Rychener and Enery
handled the forwards, Bartz played
center, and Ruzicka and Bornstein per-
formed at guard. Of these boys Bartz
and Ruzicka did perhaps the best work.
The other Varsity team consisted of
Brown and Later at forwards, Mc-
Clintock at center, and Cress and Lowe
guards. Brown looked the best of

Navy Selection Board Names Withheld
Washington, D. C., Dec. 1.-Names
of the officers composing the national
selection board for the navy have been
withheld to protect them from the
kindly suggestions of friends of eligi-
ble officers. This board is composed
by law of nine rear admirals, who will
decide next week numerous new pro-
motions in the staff corps of the navy
under the new merit system. Due to
the expansion for war, these vacancies
are quite extensive, and it is a matter
of interest as to whether the seniority
or selection rule is to apply. The
selection law deals only with line com-
missions in the higher grades.
Government to Help Secure Stock Feed
The'fact that many farmers are sell-
ing their stock because of inability to
secure feed was recently called to the
attention of Rev. Caroline Bartlett
Crane, state chairman of the Womens'
defense committee, who immediately
referred the matter to the food admin-
istration. In reply to the inquiry Mr.
George Prescott, food administrator at
Lansing, says, "Hang onto your stock
a little longer and the food administra-
tion will do something to relieve the
situation concerning the difficulty of
