Blocking. Tackling, and Falling on the
Ball Receive Attention in
Long Workout
Orange Coaches Have Trouble in Find .
ing Substitute for Big
In preparing for the coming game
with Syracuse, Coach Yost returned
to the very fundamentals of football
yesterday afternoon.
The coach dragged the squad over
to one of the side gridirons and spent
the bigger part of the afternoon in
supervising blocking, tackling, fall-
ing on the ball and things of this

All- Fresh Again
Defeat Reserves
Another one of those All-Fresh-Re-
serves scrimmages was pulled off on
south Ferry field yesterday afternoon,
and once more the freshmen came off
the gridiron with the long end of the
score to their credit.
But not until a moment before time
was called for the day did the fresh-
men shove across the necessary win-
ning touchdown. The final count was
12 to 9.
In the early part of the play the
verdants shoved Bill Hitchcock across
the Reserves' line, but the older men
were also doing things, and scored
once themselves, adding a pretty drop
kick for good measure.
At the fourth kick off the contest
waxed wearm. Weadock was injected
into the -fray, and the freshmen soon
'started on a march toward the north
goal, tearing acrossibig chunks of ter-
ritory as they proceeded. When the
ball reached the Reserves' $3-yard line,

Landers, Eby, and Hough Prep Cinder-
path Wonders Brighten
Quakers' Prospects
Philadelphia, Pa., Oct. 25.-Sherman
Landers, who entered the University of
Pennsylvania with a brilliant prepar-
atory record in the middle west be-
hind him, is the most promising track
man in the freshman class, this fall.
Landers' work in recent cinder tryouts
attracted the attention of both coaches
and spectators, and the lad from Il-
linois looks like a find for the Quaker
cinder squad.
Landers recently ran the 100-yards
in ten and one-fifth seconds, and the
220 in 22 2-5 seconds, both times
starting from scratch in handicap
races. His performance is remarkable
for this time of year, as the cool
weather has made track work inter-
mittant throughout the fall.
Eby, another freshman, ran a half
mile in 2:01 4-5, taking his event with-
out being pushed. Eby is being touted
as "Ted" Meredith's successor at Penn-
sylvania, and. his work has attracted
as much attention as that of Landers.
Hough, the third freshman find to be
uncovered in the fall tryouts, jumped

Pennsy Team Leaves Today for Tussle
With Husky Panther
Philadelphia, Pa., Oct. 25.-"Bob"
Folwell's "comeback" Pennsylviana
eleven is working four hours a day
in preparation for what may prove
to be the hardest battle of the year
on Saturday in Pittsburg. Pitt's vic-
tory over Syracuse last week showed
that Warner has a powerful eleven,
his backfield being probably stronger
than that of any other team in the_
country this fall. The Quakers are
not confident of winning, but they will
leave Philadelphia tomorrow night de-
termined to put up the fight of their
Coach Folwell, while reticent as to
the outcome of the Pittsburg game,
believes that his team will put up a
much stronger fight than Syracuse
showed last week. Folwell says that
he has solved the one big weakness
of the Quaker team, and that all he
needs is time to develope a really
formidable eleven. Even if, Pitt does
win Saturday's game, Pennsylvania
will have plenty of time to get into
trim to battle Michigan and Cornell

Meets Normalities on Ferry Field in
First Game of Season
November 4
Soccer again is about to rise on the
athletic horizon. It will have its of-
ficial dawn when the Ypsi Normalities
come over one week from Saturday, to
engage the 1916 Wolverine soccer bat-
talion on Ferry field. Last year the
boys from Ypsi had the honor of tak-
ing the first beating of the season from
the first Varsity soccer team the Uni-
versity had had for years and out of
respect for their long-suffering, they
are to be rewarded by being permitted
to duplicate their performance of last
Two games have been scheduled
with the Ypsilanti team, one here and
the other there. Last year both of the
games between the two teams were
won by the Michigan Varsity and al-
though the visitors will be out for
revenge, the reception committee
which will endeavor to entertain them
next Saturday is determined to make
things interesting and confidence
reigns on both sides of the fence. The
score in the first game last season
was 1-0 and the second result which
followed the contest at Ypsilanti was
a little more favorable to the Wolver-
ine squad.
The visitors will undoubtedly have
a rather strong team and no doubt will
have been devoting long periods to
laying plans for the downfall of the
Maize and Blue squad. Just how
strong Michigan will be this year is as
yet a matter for conjecture only. j
The team has not been organized
thus far and no captain has been elect-
ed. No practice has been held and it
will hence take some tall hustling toF
whip the team into shape before the
initial contest._
Last year the team was most cosmo-
politan in its personal. Students in
the University from China, Turkey,
Armenia, Ca ada, Greece and Hawaii
were numbd among the members of
the Varsity squad. Some of the form-
er stars were the 1915 Captain Tri-
politis, Domboorajian, Hung, Feizy and
Bates. It is impossible to say how
many of these men will back again
this year.
Last season was closed with a clean
record. Michigan won every game
with ease. If the team this year is as
strong as it was last, there is no rea-
son why there should be any defeats
chalked against the University at the
end of the present season.
It is the purpose of the Athletic as-
sociation to put soccer at Michigan on
a basis where that sport can compare
favorably with the same at any east-
ern institution. Soccer is a big sport
in the east and in Canada, and there
is no reason why Michigan should not
be as strong in this branch of athletics
as in any other.
In order to make the team a success

and to help boom the sport it becomes
necessary for every man who has play-
ed soccer to get out and try to land
a birth on the Varsity. Any men who
played on last year's team are es-
pecially urged to come out. Freshmen
are eligible for this sport and the first
year class should furnish a host of re-
The first practice will be held on
Ferry field this afternoon and every
afternoon thereafter at 3:30 o'clock.
Lockers may be secured at the intra-
mural club house.
One S mi- Final
This Afternoon
Due to the bad weather neither
match in the semi-finals of the ten-
nis tournament was played off yester-
day. If the weather permits, Hamer
and Egbert will try to play off their
match this afternoon, leaving ,the
other match of the semi-finals between
Codd and Bartz to be staged some-
time tomorrow. If this arrangement
is carried out the semi-finals will be
finished by Friday night and the finals
can be played Saturday morning. In
this way a large gallery will be able
to witness this important event.
.No matter who succeeds in compet-
ing for the cup, there is bound to be
some exceedingly fast tennis played.
Of the four remaining, contestants,
Codd, Bartz, Hamer, and Egbert, each
is able to show a brand of tennis that
will compare very favorably with that
put up by Ralph Oster, winner of last
year's tournament.

Cambridge, Mass., Oct. 25. -Har-
vard's varsity and scrub football
teams have been placed under a novel
quarantine as a result of the infantile
paralysis epidemic this fall. Edwin
Ginn, a member of the scrub team, re-
cently came down with a mild attack
of the disease, and was sent to the
isolated ward of the infirmary. Neith-
er the first nor second teams are al-
lowed to leave the university grounds,
although they have not been forbidden
to mingle with the other students on
the campus. No restrictions have been
placed on the other students.
The Harvard eleven will play out
its schedule this fall, as the health
authorities do not anticipate any furth-
er cases, believing that Ginn was ex-
posed while absent from Cambridge
some weeks ago. His roommate has
been sent home under quarantine for
two weeks.
