BULL BOOTS 'M OVER
BAR FROM 40 YARD LINE
Sharpe Will Not Start in Saturday's
Game; Three Men Dropped
From Table
Football practice yesterday after-
noon was featured by the excellent
drop kicking of one Bull Dunne. The
Varsity left end was busy on the 40-
yard line and he was dropping them
over with considerable regularity.
With Sparks out of the game, Dunne
has been doing all of the punting and
he may develop into the regular Varsity
kicker on both the punting end and
trials for field goals. Michigan will
not have to resort to the field goal
method as a means of scoring next
Saturday against Washington, but
three points may look pretty big when
the Wolverines stack up against the
Big Red team from Ithaca.
A year ago before the Cornell game
Dunne spent a week in working on
drop-kicking, but three days before
the game, the coach announced that
he wouldn't use this method of scoring
at all. Bull has been practicing of
late, however, and this year this
method of scoring against Cornell may
prove more valuable that it would have
last season.
Michigan was fairly certain that
the easterners were due for a few
touchdowns a year ago, but this
same idea has been discarded since
the .1916 season began, and a low
score should take the honors next
week.
Coach Yost announced last night
that Sharpe would not play in the
Washington game, as the coaches are
going to take no chances on having
him out of the Cornell game. Ray-
mond will appear at right half and
Zeiger will run the team from quarter-
back. There has been some specula-
tion among the followers of the team
as to the chances of Sparks going in
at right half with Zeiger playing
quarter in the Cornell and Pennsyl-
vania games. Zeiger's showing against
Syracuse last Saturday was such that
it would almost appear as though he
were needed in the backfield. Zeig

Hold Try-outs for
Fresh-Soph Relay
Very few men of either the fresh-
man or sophomore classes were work-
ing out on Ferry field yesterday for
the class relay to be held Saturday.
Trials will be held today and tomor-
row from 3 to 5 o'clock against time.
There is still opportunity to make
either team as the men making the
fastest time will be chosen regard-
less of the number of times they have
worked out.
Eight men will be selected from
each class, each man running 220
yards.
can play half himself and Yost could
do a whole lot worse than casting
Zeig for the position of Maulie's run-
ning mate.
It was Yost's intention to hold
scrimmage last night, but Zeiger did-
n't report until late and the Varsity
boss was without a quarterback.
Captain Maulbetsch, Raymond, Hanish,
and Rehor were absent and the hurry-
up-man found himself short of back-
field material, so yesterday's skirmish
was postponed until today. The All-
Fresh were due to oppose the Varsity
and they will probably figure as the
opposition against the regulars this
afternoon.
The squad was busy handling long
passes with Peach and Smith doing
the throwing. Although Peach plays
end, it isn't entirely without the realm
of possibilities to see him doing some
of the passing against Michigan's fut-
ure opponents. Michigan defeated
Cornell four years ago with an end
doing the passing. Squib Torbett was
the man in question and twice he
dropped back for long throws to Pon-
tius, and both resulted in touchdowns,
Brute traveling 35 yards on both oc-
casions after catching the ball.
Three men were dropped from the
training table last night, and one of
them has been forced to give up foot-
ball for the present year. Joe Rob-
ins, twirler on last year's Varsity has
been suffering from a bad foot and
he has decided to pass up football
upon the doctor's advice.

Once more the freshmen scrimmaged
the Varsity reserves, and once more
the freshmen came off the turf with
the long end of the count. Yester-
day's exhibition resulted with the
verdants dragging off a 6-0 verdict
at the end of two 15-minute periods.
Halfback Perrin was responsible for
the only touchdown of the afternoon,
the frosh halfback ploughing over the
line after the McGinnis crew had taken
the ball quite a distance up the grid-
iron after a big skirmish.
Weston seriously scared the year-
lings just before the end of the first
period when he squirmed through most
of the Wolverine youngsters for a total
of 60 yards. After he was brought
down a short breathing spell was suf-
ficient to put added punch in the for-
wards and the reserves never threat-
ened again. The reserves uncorked a
variety of fake plays which the year-
lings generally stopped without trou-
ble. Chapman at tackle starred for

past two years, and captain of the
1916 diamond team, has entered a new
field of sports.
Last Saturday George went hunt-
ing down on the Labadie ranch, situ-,
ated in Arkansas. Dogs were along,
for useful purposes as well as to sup-
ply companionship, principally to
scent big game.
Some time after the hunt began, the

dogs grew anxious. They followed the
trail of some specimen of the animal
kingdom with commendable patience.
Lab meantime was exhibiting for the
plains of the oil state some of that
speed in which he used to convert in-
field taps into hits by half a stride.
He had to, as those hounds set some
pace.
After a chase of several hours the
animal was finally treed, and soon
after was in the possession of the erst-
while ash swinger.
The long and the short of this tale
is that George captured what is said
to be the last of the species of bobcat
in that vicinity. The animal was
skinned, and its hide has been shipped
to Kansas City to be mounted. Soon
it will adorn a place in George's law
office in Tawhuski, Okla.

Princeton Football Fans Pessimistic
Princeton, Oct. 31.-With the Har-
vard and Yale games looming mighty
large just over the horizon, Princeton
football fans see little hope for Speedy
Rush's Tigers. In spite of the fact
that the Tigers have won every game
this year and have done it without an
opposing team scoring a touchdown, it
is a well recognized fact in Princeton
that the Tigers must see a lot of im-
provement before they can hope to
down their two principal rivals. Rush
is working hard to develop a defense
that will carry a heavy punch and' is
busy trying to plug up holes in his
line.
