Football Boss at Rutgers Introduces
New System of Scoring Which
Yost Now Improves
Coach Yost believes that he has per-
fected the "multiple kick."
The "multiple kick" is the very lat-
est thing in football circles. It is the
first new method of kicking field goals
that has been devised since 1895. Up
to this time, th drop kick was the
only known method of scoring by a
boot from the field. That year the
goal from placement was introduced,
and now we have the "multiple kick."
The "multiple kick" consists in hav-
ing two half backs lying on the turf
holding the ball between them and
elevated from the ground while a third
man does the kicking.
The kick has been used by Rutgers
this season with varying success. The
Rutgers aggregation has been using
the quarterback as a means of carry-
ing the ball from the center to the two
men lying on the ground. Coach Yost
has introduced the direct pass from
the center, thus giving Pim one man
to act as a defense for the three who
are busy engineering the kick.
The Michigan Varsity was using the
"multiple kick" last night in practice.
Bull Dunne and Raymond were doing
the kicking. The coach stated that
he would practice on this newest
wrinkle for the rest of the week and
that if any of his men displayed suf-
ficient ability, he would instruct the
team to use this play against Cornell
next Saturday.
The big advantage of the "multiple
kick" is the distance from which it
can be tried. One of the Rutgers play-
ers booted a goal from the 60-yard
line and kicks of 45 and 50 yards are
not only possible but feasible. Lack
of accuracy seems to be the biggest
drawback at present and whether this
comes from lack of practice or some
unknown cause is yet to be discov-
The credit for discovering the play
goes to George Foster Sanford, a
former Yale player. Sanford noted
that the rule relative to field goals,
"A goal from the field is made by
kicking the ball from the field of play
over the cross bar of opponent's goal
in any way except by a punt or kick-I
Sanford has been using the "multi-
ple kick" with his Rutgers team, and
the play has attracted considerable at-
tention. The Rutgers team tried the
new play last Saturday on two oc-
casions but it failed both times.
Coach Yost announced last night
that Sharpe would start the Cornell
game at right half if he is in condi-
tion. This means that Zeiger will not
be in the lineup if Sparks is in shape.
This announcement comes as a sur-
prise to many, for Zeiger has been
showing just about the best brand of
football of any man on the Michigan
aggregation for the past two weeks.
It is hard to see how they can keep
him out of the Cornell game.
The team escaped with signal prac-

tice last night, although considerable
time was spent in kicking and pass-
ing. The training table has been in-
creased to 25 and will carry this num-
ber throughout the rest of the season.

Alumni Association Prepares "Get-
Together" for Support of Mafe
and Blue at Cornell
Preparations for a Michigan banquet
and a general get-together in Ithaca
the night before the Michigan-Cornell
game have been made by the Michigan
Alumni association in Ithaca.
Michigan rooters in that section of
the country who are expecting to see
the game the following day have been
invited and it is the desire of the asso-
ciation to extend a cordial welcome to
all Michigan students who are in
Ithaca that night.
The banquet will be held at the
University club in Ithaca and has been
set for 6:15 o'clock, Friday night.
Tickets are 50 cents and can be ob-
tained by addressing Donald K. Tress-
ler, Morse hall, Ithaca, New York.
Finalsfor Women 's
PT o
Tennis Reached
Finals in the women's tennis tourn-
ament are to be played off this week
in four exciting matches, the first of
which occurs this afternoon on the
Newberry courts when Margaret At-
kinson, '19, sophomore champion,
meets Lucy Huffman, '20, who won the
freshman title yesterday by defeating
Katherine Loveland, '19, 6-4, 4-6, 6-2,
was one of the closest of the whole
tournament so far and the contest this
afternoon ought to equal it.
Louise Irish, '18, won the junior
championship yesterday by defeating
Elizabeth Patchin, '18, 6-2, 6-1, and
Lavinia MacBride, '17, lost to Mildred
Crissey, '17, 3-6, 7-5, 7-5. These upper-
class champions will play each other
Wednesday afternoon and the last
match of the tournament will occur
sometime this week. Margaretta
Douglas, '17, college champion last
spring, will defend her title against
the winner.
Ex-Track Captain Smith Tries Flying
Harold L. Smith, captain of the
Michigan Varsity track team in 1914-
1915 and 1915-1916, was in Ann Ar-
bor for the week-end and attended the
Michigan-Washington football game.
Hal went up with Aviator Don McGee
for a couple of flights and he declared
that if Michigan ever had an aero-
plane team he was going to re-enter
college and work until he' was
"dropped" or made it.

Punting may play a big share in the
final outcome of the Michigan-Cornell
game next Saturday and the showing
made by the Michigan booters last Sat-
urday was highly encouraging. Bothi
Dunne and Raymond were kicking far
better than they have at any time
previously this year.
Sparks was attnemiing to this duty
before he was injured av e i :nces
are that he will do the most of the
punting at Cornell, but Dunne's long
kicks last Saturday may mean that
the pilot will have to share this work
with Bull.
In Shiverick. Cornell has one of
the finest punters in the country and
there is but little doubt that he will
outdistance the Michigan kickers. To
offset this advantage, Michigan will
have Sparks returning with Shiver-
ick's boots and the little quarterback
hasn't found any ends yet this year
that have been able to stop him. Cor-
nell's extremity men, Zander, Eckley,
and Ryerson, compose a much more
formidable trio than Sparks has been
up against yet, but the Michigan con-

tingent is confident that he can offset
whatever advantage Cornell may have
in the length of Shiverick's punts by
his returns.
Michigan's ends have been covering
kicks in excellent style all season, and
if they continue their good work next
Saturday it may mean that the Wol-
verines will have a slight advantage in
a department that would seemingly be-
long to Cornell. If Shiverick plays
defensive quarter for the Big Red
team, the edds will have a bigger prob-
lem ahead of them than has confronted
them yet this season, for Shiverick is
a notable star at open field running.
Whatever the outcome of the battle,
the punting duel which should in-
volve Sparks, Dunne, Peach, Shiverick,
and Eckley as the principle factors,
promises to be one of unusual inter-
If Yost should shift Sparks to half
to let Zeiger run the team, it is prob-
able that Sparks would still continue
to play defensive quarter, although
Zeiger has been showing excellent
form in open field running.

Yesterday's game between the senior
and fresh lits resulted in a 0 to 0 af-
fair. Both teams showed remarkable
defensive strength but were sadly
lacking in what it takes to carry the
ball over. After the first quarter
neither team was able to make a first
down. Adams again was the main
factor in the seniors' play, repeatedly
going through the freshman line and
tackling the runner before he could get
under way.
