case Line
Michigan's Varsity Reserves and the
All-Fresh scrimmaged 40 minutes last
night to a scoreless tie, neither side
shoving over a touchdown.
The closest that the yearlings came
to scoring was when Friedmeyer tried
a drop kick from the 25-yard line, but
the kick went wide. The Reserves
pushed up to the 10-yard line on one
occasion, but the first year footballers
rallied and held at this point. The
scrimmage took place on south Ferry
field. and the Varsity used the regu-
lar field.
Coach Yost let his regulars off with
a comparatively light workout andidis-
missed them early so that he could
watch the scrimmage between the re-
serves and the fresh. The coach stated
last night that Michigan was badly in

it may mean the difference between a
tie game and a victory.
The Reserves that scrimmaged
against the fresh last night were:
Hildner, McCallam, Boyd, Skinner,
Goodsall, Whalen, Loucks, Zeiger,
Hanish and Brazell.

Finds New Star
Philadelphia, Pa., Oct. 23.-The
showing of Howard Berry in Satur-
day's game between Pennsylvania and
Penn State was perhaps the most en-
couraging feature of Pennsylvania's
play. Berry has been back from the
Mexican border less than 10 days.
. Berry is one of the finest all-around
athletes in America, but his work on
the gridiron last year was not up to
his performances in other lines. This
year, however, he has been displaying
a decided reversal of form in the few
days that he has been out for the
team and the coaches are much
pleased with his work.
In last Saturday's game Berry
kicked two difficult field goals and
ran 40 'yards for a touchdown after
catching a forward pass. He was in-
jured and carried from the field to-
ward the close of the game, but exam-
inations yesterday disclosed the fact
that he was not seriously hurt.
Quigley, who took Berry's place,
kicked a goal from placement from
the 47-yard line just before the con-
test was over.
It would not be surprising to see

Darkness Fails to Halt Strenuous
Workout;.Many Changes
in Lineup
McGinnis is stealing a lot of Yost's
copyrighted stuff these days. So re-
cently as last evening, the freshman
tutor kept the tungstens shining on
Ferry field until nearly 6:30. We have
a sneaking hunch that the freshmen
are going to haul away more of that
victory stuff from a certain crowd over
in Lansing if hard work and long
hours mean anything.
Early in the day-until about 5:30
p. m.,- o'f course-McGinnis had the
freshmen engaged in scrimmaging the
Varsity scrubs. Nothing in the way of
scores resulted in this. The tussle
was more or less of a draw at the end
of three rounds, with neither side ac-
complishing anything in the way of
much ground gaining. The freshman
coach shifted his men so fast that some
of the scrubs had brief attacks of dizzi-
ness at times in locating the man to-
ward which they were supposed to di-
rect most of their attention.
Late in the tilt, when darkness was
rapidly overtaking the warriors, Mc-
Ginnis called upon Friedmeyer for a
score from drop kick. The husky
guard nearly lost his way, but finally
located the posts, but twice he was
unable to shoot the leather where it
would do the most good. Doug and
Mac finally quit, at which time Harry
Zeiger was thoroughly engaged in the
endeavor to rush the ball from his
own 20-yard line over the yearling
goal. But he didn't beat the watch
by a wide margin of about 55 yards.
After that McGinnis escorted his
men over to the place made sacred
by the ghost ball, where the fun be-
gan all over again.

Over 20,ooo See
Saturday 's Game
That the Michigan-Aggies fray of
Saturday attracted more interest than
it ever did previously is shown by the
attendance of students of both schools,
and the horde of alumni which wit-
nessed the game. Official figures as
given out by the athletic association
show there were 20,872 paid admis-
sions. This is exclusive of passes of
all sorts which are always attendant
on any large contest.
This crowd is probably the third
largest which has ever witnessed a
Michigan team in action. In 1913 ap-
proximately 25,000 squirmed through
the gates to witness Captain Pater-
son's team defeat Pennsy 13 to 0. In
1910, 23,000 saw, the Wolverines bat-
tle the Gophers for the championship
of the west. Last year saw an esti-
mated crowd of 22,000 persons for the
24 to 0 kicking the Yostmen suffered
at the hands of Blake Miller's bunch.
But many competent to judge think
the attendance Saturday was larger
than a year ago. Four thousand two
hundred pasteboards were disposed of
in Lansing alone last week, showing
just how much the Farmers wanted to
see the contest.
Defeats Wilson in Hard Match, 6-4,
6-4; E. Steketee Loses to Barts
In what was perhaps the fastest and
most hotly contested match of the
tournament, Johnny Codd succeeded in
defeating Wilson 6-4, 6-4. Until yes-
terday's match, Wilson was not con-
ceded a chance nor was he looked
upon as championship material. Never-
theless the form he exhibited was
nothing short of dazzling, and Codd
was forced to the limit. At present it
looks as if the latter stands an excel-
lent chance of landingcin the finals.
Due to the muddy condition of the
courts only two matches were played,"
the other being furnished by Bartz andI
E. Steketee, and resulting in a victory!
for the former, 6-2, 6-2. This was
really a better match than the scores
indicate, Steketee succeeding in deuc-
ing nearly every game.
At present the cement court is the
only one that can be used. Due to
this the only match scheduled for today
is between P. Steketee and Hamer,
which will end the fourth round.

Class Football Managers to Report at
Athletic Offices
Interclass football will hold open
house on south Ferry field this week.
Intercollege Manager Chenot an-
nounced last night that skirmishing
would begin in the athletic offices im-
mediately while actual hostilities will
be staved off pending the declaration
of war per schedule the latter part of
the week.
In order to arrange for the schedule
and for the necessary details for the
bloodletting, every class manager must
report to the intercollege manager at
the athletic offices sometime today.
Managers may drop in any time dur-
ing the day and each will receive
eligibility blanks which they are to
f:l out so that they may be presented
to the official at the first game. The

playing on a class team must be ac-

Douglass thinks that if the Michi-
gan line improves as it should dur-
ing the week, the Wolverines will
have an even chance against their op-
ponents on Saturday. Pittsburg de-
feated Syracuse without' much diffi-
culty, but it seems to be the concensus
of opinion that the Orangemen were
caught off their guard. In Rafter,
Syracuse has a 145-pound full back
whose open field work has bothered
every team that the Syracuse eleven
has faced. Rafter has also been gain-
ing through the line when the big
Orange forward wall has been work-
ing in good shape.
The coach announced that there
would be secret practice all week. If
Michigan finds that her line is un-
equal to the task of caring for the
eastern forwards, it would not be sur-
prising to see the Maize and Blue cut
loose with an open game consisting of
passes plus Mr. Sparks. Sparks is an
open game in himself and with the
shifty Michigan pilot going back to

gregation will have considerable to
