Idea of Scrulb Team Gines Yearlings
Better Opportunity to Play
in Games

One of the most popular indoor
pastimes is that of picking All-Ameri-
can teams. It doesn't much matter
what the sport may be it has its
mythical lineups.
With the baseball season over, at-
tentioi naturally turns to this first,
'and I. E. Sanborn of the Chicago Trib-
une is one or the early birds in the
market with his selections. It is in-
teresting to note what Sanborn has to
say concerning George Harold Sisler,
the former University of Michigan
baseball star.

The second score was the result of

yg center for the yearlings, passed

hemselves on their own 5-yard line

artens kicked goal.
Chapman Big Noise for Yearlings
For the freshmen, Chapman was the
g noise and his work yesterday
eems to stamp him as the best line
rospect on the 1920 team. He had
.ore fight than any of his team-
ates and he was in the thick of it
1 afternoon.
Bull Dunne spent considerable time
op kicking and he sent several over

Contrary to thepractice of former
years, there will be no cut in the All-
Fresh football squad this fall.
Instead the small army that reports
to Coach Ralph McGinnis every aft-
ernoon will be divided into two parts,
one to be under the direct supervision
of the former Iowa star and one to be
in charge, of the two new assistant
coaches, "Red" Johnson and Harry
Calvin, both former backs on the
Varsity squad.
This second string bunch will hold
frequent scrimmages with the regu-
lar McGinnis cast and will also par-
take of bi-weekly workouts with the
Ann Arbor high school aggregation. A
schedule of three or four games may
also be arranged for the yearlings,
their opponents to be drawn from the
ranks of neighboring high school?
teams and college second string
elevens. The lads received their first
taste of blood Saturday morning when1

Hanish Ready if Smith Can't Play
Pat Smith and Sharpe were out in
:itizen's clothes. Smith will not be
able to don a suit for a couple of
lays and there seems to be no chance
t all of Sharpe's getting into Satur-

Professor Aigler Responsible.
The new idea originated with Pro-
fessor Ralph Aigler, chairman of the
athletic board in control. The aim is
to give every freshman who turns out
for football the, benefit of expert
coaching and good competition. It
has been the case in former years that
many good prospects have been lost to
the team because of the too-early
pruning of the squad. The yearling
horde is too large for one coach to
handle, an early cut is therefore nec-
essary, and the unfortunate young man
who has failed to deliver in whirlwind
style from* the start finds himself de-
prived of a chance to develop his grid-
iron proclivities. It is for this man
that the new system has been installed.

Speaking of Sisler.
Sanborn selected Hal Chase who
lead the National league in batting,
for first base, and gives George the
position of utility man; In -speaking
of first basemen he says:
"Considered wholly on his perform-
ances onthe field, Hal Chase has the
call on all the first, basemen, unless
possibly Sisler can displace him in
popular estimation. If we were mak-
ing up a team to win a pennant we
would select the Brown youngster on,
account of his temperament, which
tends more to harmony in the club
than does Chase's, but there is no
questioning Hal's ability as a guardian
of the first corner. McInnis of the
Athletics is a great player, too, but
Chase has it on him because he can
throw to second with his left hand, if
necessary, better than Stuffy."
In referring to the question of util-
ity men, Sanborn offers the following:
"Sisler and Herzog are the greatest
utility players of recent years. Sisler
has shown that he can play anywhere,
including slab work. Outfield 'or in-
field look alike to him. Herzog is
valuable anywhere on the infield, and
both of them can hit.
"When Sisler has had another year
or two of experience .$e will be
counted the greatest player of his day,
without doubt. For his tremendous
value as a utility man alone he was
not placed on first base instead cj
George Plays Five Positions.
It is interesting to note that during
the past season Sisler played five dif-
ferent positions for the St. Louis
Browns. First base was his regular
assignment, but George filled in at
center field and right field on emerg-
ency calls. He twirled three gampes
and numbered among these is a 1 to 0
victory over Walter Johnson, the
greatest pitcher baseball has ever
Sisler played all of the above posi-
tions at Michigan, but Fielder Jones

for a few games and the critics mar-

New York, Oct. 17.-Officials of the
A. A. U. expressed great gratification
today over the outcome of the athletic
contest in Sweden, where an American
team of five men has upheld Ameri-
can honors in fine style after a hard
trip across the Atlantic.
Denied permission to land at Kirk-
wall, England, for brief practice, the
American quintet composed of Fred S.
Murray, Ted Meredith, Robert Simp-
son, Andy Ward, and Joe Loomis, gave
a good account of themselves.
Murray and Simpson, the wonderful
hurdlers of the party, had no trouble
at all in winning these events. In the
110 meters Simpson clipped 2-5 sec-
onds off the Olympic record, made by
Fred Kelly of California in the last
Olympic games. Murray's best per-
formance was over the 220-meter dis-
Ted Meredith's performance was the
only disappointment, but to best the
former champion American quarter-
miler, Sweden's best, Bolin, was forced
to equal a world's record in the 1.00P-
meters event.
Meredith did not finish first in any
of his races. He was beaten in the
high jump, and Murray was forced
to take second place in the shot put,f
but the relay races on both days ofj
the big meet went to the American'
team of Simpson, Murray, Loomis, and
Ward. The latter two also did not-t
able work in the dashes and Simpsoni
helped out in these events by taking
a second in the 100-meters.

Yost went atter the ball, but the
big man dropped clumsily upon the
leather and it rolled away from him.
Pontius then tried to reenforce the
efforts of Fielding H., but he didn't
do a bit better than his chief, and
in trying to pick up the ball he made
an awful mess of the whole business.
Douglass finally stopped the course
of the pigskin by catching it awk-
wardly between his legs, and the on-
lookers breathed easier.
The coaches then got theirs! John-
nie Maulbetsch bawled out the grid'-

At last the call for class football
has been issued. Those in charge of
intramural activities have finally suc-
ceeded in drawing up a schedule. The
difficulty encountered lay in the fact
that very few of the classes have
elected football managers. Neverthe-
less all this has been properly cared
for by Intercollege Manager James
The schedule calls for the first
games to be played next Monday. Va-
rious class managers should place
their teams in the field at once. If
this is done no team will be forced
to default because of lack of practice.
All those desiring to try out for the
various class teams should report to
