Michigan Meets Orange Hill-Climbers
Saturday Morning in Initial
Run of Season
Saturday is to be a regular Syra-
cuse day. Preceding the gridiron clash
with Syracuse, the Michigan cross
country runners will entertain the
Orange speedsters of the same class,
the party taking the form of a gentle
Jog over a four-mile course, starting



to Hamer 6-1,6-2
Hamer defeated Paul Steketee 6-1,
6-2, in the finish of the fourth round

With the scrubs doing their best to
employ Syracuse formations and plays,
the Varsity scored 25 points against'
them yesterday afternoon and kept its
own goal line free.
The Syracuse plays didn't seem to
bother the Varsity particularly, al-
though their execution may be attend-
ed withtconsiderable more success
when that ponderous Orange line is
defending the Syracuse backfield. At
the same time, the Varsity's showing
was decidedly encouraging and next
Saturday's game should be a close one
whichever way it goes.
Martens, Peach and Loucks were
playing at the two extremities for the
Varsity, and Weimhann and Whalen
were caring for the tackles, while
Gracey, Dunn and Goodsall were play-
ing guard during the course of the
scrimmage. Skinner was in at center
and the backfield was composed of
Sparks, Zeiger, Brazell, Raymond,
Bathrick, Smith and Hanish.

McGinnis Aggregation Held to Score-
less Tie in First Half of
Practice Game
McGinnis stacked his yearling crew
up against the Ann Arbor high grid-
ders yesterday afternoon with a re-
sult of four touchdowns for the 1920
In the first part of the combat the
freshmen were held at bay by the
high boys, their efforts netting them
nothing in the way of counts. After
that period of 0-0 they "launched an
an offensive," as the war correspond-
ents put it, and ended only after they
had assaulted the enemy's trench four
times successfully.
The freshmen didn't open up on
their more youthful adversaries to any
great extent, being content to pay
something fashioned after the old'fime
football. Blackmore was in at Freid-
meyer's guard yesterday, and showed
up well enough so that he may get
the call for the position against M.
A. C.'s youngsters in this week's en-
gagement. Two of the regular back-
field were missing from the fray, which
may account for the smallness of the
The coach wasn't overly satisied
with the score of yesterday, or with1
the method of football displayed by
his cohorts, and promises more of the
rough action for this afternoon. It is
expected that scrimmage will be held
with either the Varsity or the re-:

Sparks started but he was taken
from the lineup when he injured his
ankle. Sparks intercepted a forward
pass and raced 25 yards to the scrub's
15-yard line. On the first playthe
quarterback tried an end run and was
hurt. Although he was forced to dro;
out there is but little question that he
will be in the lineup against Syracuse
next Saturday.
Zeiger replaced him and Zeig play-
ed an excellent game. Once he car-
ried the kickoff back 45 yards, three
times he broke away for 20 yard runs
and on another occasion he advanced
the ball 15 yards before he was ap-
The first touchdown was secured by
Martens. The Varsity was on the 30-
yard line and Zeiger threw a pass to
'Martens which the end captured five
yards from the line. He ran the rest
of the distance and the first string
men rang up their first score of the
afternoon. Thesecond touchdown was
the result of a straight march down
the field, with everyone carrying the
ball for an advance. It was an un-
hindered drive and the scrubs could-
n't check it.
Hanish chalked up the third touch-
down of the afternoon on a trick play
and the final marker of the day's work
was the result of a forward pass.
Peach caught a long throw and ran 15
yards to the line.
Forward passes figured rather prom-
inently in the scoring of the Varsity
and if the Syracuse line proves as
strong as is expected, it would seem as
though Michigan may rely consider-
ably upon this method of attack. The
Varsity has handled the passing game
in much better style than last year's
team everbdidand the ends have shown
real ability in hanging onto the ball
once that it reached them. Last year
Pat Smith threw accurately but he did-
n't succeed in locating anyone who
could cling to the ball after he'd shot
it squarely into their hands.
Word from Syracuse says that
Schlachter, the strongest lineman that
the easterners possess, has been in-
jured and his absence should weaken
the team considerably. The Syracuse
coaches are driving their team at top
speed as they are bending every ef-
fort to beat Michigan. Last year the
easterners defeated the Wolverines on
Ferry field for the first time and' they
believe the hoodoo is broken. Up to3
last fall, Michigan used to win regular-
ly on her own field with the Orangef
aggregation taking every game thatf
was staged in the Syracuse stadium.
Considerable time will be spent on
the line and Coach Pontius will beI
busy all week teaching his charges
how to oppose the heavy and powerfult
wall that Syracuse is expected to
throw into the field. Michigan will be
outweighed, but the Pittsburg line
was outweighed by the Orange lastr
Saturday and yet they outplayed theirr
bigger opponents. Pitt had an All-
American center as a pivot aroundr
which to work, and this MichiganI

at the Ferry field clubhouse and fin-
ishing at the same building.
The New Yorkers are rated in the
dreadnought class and although no
names have as yet been secured in
connection with the personnel of the
team, they will probably have a strong
squad in Ann Arbor to contest hill
climbing honors with the Wolverines.
Last year the Orange cross country
team finished ahead of the Michigan
team in the eastern intercollegiates at
Cambridge and are likely to entertain
much confidence with regard to the
outcome of the coming meet. There
will be a battle just the same ho mat-
ter which way the run results.
A limit of ten men on each team
has been set by the authorities, but
it is not expected that the Syracuse
coach will bring down more than
seven entries. Michigan will prob-
ably enter the limit. The first five
men on each team will count in the
final score. The men coming in will
count as follows: First man in counts
one point, the second man finishing
will count two, and so on. The team
gathering the lowest number of points
will be declared winning.
As a little preliminary dope, the fol-
lowing are the men who finished in
the eastern intercollegiates last year:
Syracuse-Newkirk, 15th; White, 19th;
Cooper, 40th; George, 43rd, and Finch,
46th. Michigan-Carroll, 11th; Ku-
ivenen, 42nd; Fox, 62nd; Donnelly,
63rd, and Walters, 70th. Michigan has
lost three out of the five men finishing.
Fox and Donnelly are no longer in the
University, and Walters has finished
his allotted term of years of competi-
tion for the Maize and Blue. Carroll
and Kuivenen are Varsity track cap-
tain and captain of the cross country
squad, respectively.
The schedule for tale season has not
yet been announced, but the following
are probable dates on which the team
will compete: M. A. C. may come to
Ann Arbor on the 18th of November;
the team will probable go to New
[aven on the Saturday before Thanks-
giving day to run in the eastern inter-
collegiates again and incidentally will
have the opportunity to see the Yale-
Harvard game in the Yale bowl then;
and it is possible that the Wolverines
may be entered in the Detroit Y. M.
C. A. race at Belle Isle on Thanksgiv-
ng day.
The race Saturday morning will
start at 10 o'clock sharp from the
Ferry field clubhouse.

for the Comstock tennis trophy. The
match was fast throughout and thougl
he was defeated by a big score, Steke-
tee played good tennis all the way.
This is Hamer's first year on the Mich-
igan campus although he is a junior,
having attended the University of
South Carolina where he played var-
sity tennis. If he can keep up the
brand of tennis he showed yesterday
he is almost certain of landing a birth
on next year's All Fresh.
The next two matches to be played
are the semi finals. Those who have
successfully reached the semi finals
are Codd, who will play Bartz, and
Hamer, who will meet Egbert. These
matches are sure to benthe best play-
ed thus far as each contestant has
met and defeated the best the campus
can produce. The match between Eg-
bert and Hamer ought to develop the
fastest brand of tennis seen around
these parts in some time. Both have
played "big league" tennis, both rely
on speed and their ability to drive the
ball within a few inches of the net.
It is not at all certain that the semi
finals will be finished today due to
the poor condition of the courts, but is
is the plan of those in charge to have
at least one of the matches played off
by evening.

Quite a jumper
This Jo Loomis
They tell a good one about Jo Loom
is, who holds the record for the 100
yard dash in the senior A. A. U.
Jo was down east last month takini
part in the yearly games held by the
amateur athletic association. He had
finished part of his work for the day
when the high jump was called. Jo
was late getting out on the field, and
when he finally got there he found
the cross beam perched nicely on the
six foot mark.
Now after an event is started, the
A. A. U. doesn't start it all over again
Accordingly Jo found himself confront-
ed with the task of starting his work
in the high jump at the more or less
dizzy and difficult height of six feet
straight up from terra firma. He had
just three tries to make this height
without any limbering up process,
rather an easy task, we don't think.
The long and short of the matter is
that Jo cleared the bar his first effort.
The other entrants followed Jo and
each failed in his three tries.
Jo, Loomis thus won the event with
but one leap in the face of some of
America's best competition, the first
time a high jump was ever won with
but a single try.

Chris Schlachter, All-American Line-
maan, Injured in Scrimmage;
Rafter Improves

Syracuse, N. Y., Oct. 24.-Chris
Schlachter, Hollenbeck's All-Ameri-
can guard, who was injured in Mon-
day night's practice, will not be able
to get into the Michigan game under
any circumstances. Schlachter broke
his collar bone in a hard scrimmage
night before last, and will be out for
two weeks.
Just who Hollenbeck will send in at
the open guard is a question, for
while the Syracuse coach has plenty
of good s'bstitutes, he has no one who
can play the game Schlachter is capa-
ble of.
The Orange backfield has been get-
ting personal attention from Hollen-
beck for some time, and the weak
showing made by his ground gainers
against Pittsburg has caused Hollen-
beck to redouble his efforts to whip a
formidable set of backs into shape for
the Michigan game. Rafter in particu-
lar, has come in for a big share of
the coach's remarks, and the little
fullback has a hard row to hoe this
Rafter, who weighs less than 150
pounds, is expected to bear the brunt
of the Orange attack against the Wol-
verines, and his many errors in thel
Pittsburg game are being eliminated
by main force this week. Williams,
Matt and E. Brown, and Planck were
all given a lot of attention in tonight's
workout, as the loss of Wright and
Schwartzer has cut down Hollenbeck's
list of available backs to an alarming
extent. The Syracuse line is expect-
ed to hold its own against the Yost
forwards despite the loss of Schlacht-
er, but it is feared that the Orange
backs will not be equal to the test
when they face the Wolverines on Sat-

Syracuse Has "Come-Back" Mass Meet
Syracuse, N. Y., Oct. 24.-Four
thousand Syracuse students attended
the "come-back" mass meeting in
front of the auditorium yesterday. De-
spite the 30 to 0 beating handed the
Orange by the Pittsburg eleven on
Saturday, great enthusiasm marked the
meeting, and every speaker declared
that this defeat was the one thing
needed by Syracuse to bring out the
latent strength of the eleven.
