Nothing Definite Regarding Lineup
for Saturday Given Out
by Coach
Captain Maulbetsch engaged in drop-
kicking and place kicking yesterday,
and the Michigan leader showed con-
siderable accuracy in booting between
the goal: posts. Johnny tried several
from the 45-yard line with good re-
suits. Bull Dunne was dropping 'em
from the 50-yard line in a fashion to
cause any Cornell scouts some anxiety
should any have been around.
Bull and Phil Raymond shared
honors in the punting. Raymond was
covering about 65 yards most of the
time and Dunne's boots were travel-
ing equally as far. A little discount
must be allowed for the wind, but both
of Michigan's punters were getting
them off in fine style and even had
there been no wind for a distance that
would give one Mr. Shiverick food for
thought. Some kicks from placement
were made and several attempts from
the 45-yard line met with success.
The squad indulged in light scrim-
mage during the afternoon. Part of
the time was devoted to running down
under punts.
Coach Yost would not give out the
names of the men who will go to
Ithaca Saturday, and any list given
out can only be speculative. Whether
Zeiger or Sparks will start the game
against the Big Red team is the big
question both for Cornell and Michi-
gan rooters. Either way the Ithacans
will have to prepare for a Michigan
pilot who can both dodge in an open
field or hit the line.
Just how the backfield will .line up
is another problem for the dopesters.
Captain Maulbetsch is assured of a
berth and it is. only reasonable to say
that Pat Smith can be expected to oc-
cupy the fullback's position. Who will
be Maulie's running mate at right half
seems to be a toss-up. Raymond and
Brazell have been playing a strong
game in that place. with the odds per-
haps a litle in Phil's favor. Eggert
did some good running in the Wash-
ington game and looks like a strong
substitute for a backfield job.
The team will leave for Geneva, N.
Y., over the Michigan Central at 9:43
o'clock tonight. They will arrive at
Geneva tomorrow morning and will
limber up on the Hobart College field
as a last oiling before the big battle.
The invasion of Ithaca will take place
from Geneva Saturday morning.

Bright Prospects
ForRifle Club
The Rifle club is again before the
public gaze. The prospects for this
year are very bright. Last night at a
meeting of the club about 50 men sign-
ed up for membership in the organiza-
tion after Major C. E. Wilson, Line
Coach Miller Pontius, and Mr. Rowe
had finished short talks to the men.
Last year the team won ,the cham-
pionship of all non-Military schools.
This year the team will contest in
Class A. The team has lost some of
its best men through graduation so
that there is a great need for new ma-
Michigan was greatly handicappedi
last year because there was no avail-

Schoepfle hopes to have an indoor
range in the Waterman gymnasium.
This will be open to members of the
club at all times. Rifles will be furn-
ished by the organization and ammuni-

Cornell Scribe Says Team Has Latent
Strength Not Shown
as Yet

By G. P. Hefferman
(Football Editor Cornell Sun.)
Ithaca, N. Y., Nov. 8.-The Cornell
football team has won four of the five
games played to date. Scores: Cor-
nell 26, Gettysburg 0; Cornell 42, Wil-
liams 0; Cornell 19, Bucknell 0; AIar %
vard 23, Cornell 0; Cornell 15, Carnegie
Tech 7.
The team is powerful but has as
yet failed to show of just what it is
capable. The opening three games did
not furnish a real test for Cornell and
the team entered the Harvard game
untried and in no shape for the con-
test. It was a favorite because of the
reputation of the 1915 eleven, from
which there are six veterans in this
year's lineup, namely Mueller, Shiver-.
ick, Eckley, Gillies, Miller, and Ander -
son. Cornell played miserable be.11
against Harvard, fumbling often and
tackling fearfully. These defects in
the team were shown for two W eeks
before the Harvard game during which
time the scrubs played the Varynity off
its feet in scrimmages. Irn the last
week a slight change for the better has
been evident. In Carnegie Tech last
Saturday the team met a worthy op-
ponent that gave it a battle needed
Being two weeks behind 1915, the
late start undoubtedly has had a lot
to do with the backwardness of the
team. Cornell did not report until
Sept. 28 and played its first game on
Oct. 9.
Mueller is a defensive back and a
fair line plunger. Hoffman and Bene-
dict have shown flashes of form, the
former being the best ground gainer
for Cornell in the Harvard game.
Benedict did good work against Car-
negie last Saturday. Shiverick is well
known. Eckley has been out for end
for only, two weeks and is not yet
up to his form of a year ago. Zander,
the other end, played on the scrubs
last season. The line is fully as strong
as that of 1915, with the exception of
Carry at center who has a lot to do
to fill the shoes of Cool. However, he
has been doing fine work in the last
two games. Gillies and Miller on the
left side played against Michigan last
season as did Anderson at right guard.
Jewett, at right tackle, is 6-5 and
weighs 200.He has been on the in-
jured list for two weeks, but will
probably be in shape to start against
Michigan. Speed, who worked at quar-
terback in Shiverick's absence from
the Carnegie Tech game, is a clever
player and as good a ground gainer
as any man on the team. It is not
unlikely that Dr. Sharpe will use him
at quarter against Michigan and place
Shiverick in Benedict's place at left

and freshm~an cross country teams. A

Coach Farrell is much pleased. with
the improvement shown by the team
snce the meet with the Syracuse far-
riers. Although the Orangemen sored
& decisive victory in that clash, yet
the fact that Michigan lost is abso-
lutely no discredit to the team. Coach
Tom Keene of the Syracuse squad
stated on the day of the race that he
had brought the strongest Orange
cross country team to Ann Arbor that
day that he had trained for that uni-
vrsity. This statement is borne out
by the fact that Syracuse drubbed both
the Yale and Princeton runners last
Saturday. Considering that both. these
latter named institutions have always
possessed strong track teams in every
branch of thgt sport, it ce rtainly
would appear that to defeat Syacuse
would require a team stronger than
the great majority of aggregations in
the east and middle west. The Michi-
gan coach stated that although the
Wolverines would probably not de-
velop into anything startling, yet be-
fore the season is over his proteges
will be heard from.
Immediately after the Varsity run is
held those members of the yearling
class who are ambitious along cross
country lines will have an opportunity
to show their wares in a four and a
half mile battle.rThe race starts at
11 o'clock.
This race will be in the nature of
a tryout for the team wich will go
to Lansing"along with the Vars itySat-
urday,,the 18th. The first six men will
make the .trip and as tdiere are sev-
eral rather promising boys waiting for
a chance, the tryout shoutld be no loaf-
er's contest.
The freshmen will run with the
arsity teams in the meet at tlie state
capital, and if they should gt the
lowest score will be accounted win-
ners, but their score otherwise will
not be counted except in relatiort to
the other first year teams runnAng.

Elections Have
Great Charms
Cornell game seats are going rather,
slowly, only about 80 of the 4$0 seats
reserved having been applied for at
the athletic office. The only reason
that can be assigned to this state of
affairs is that the financial status of
many members of the Michigan student
body is rather unsettled, due to cer-
tain events Hof the past few days. The
wise one is he who is spending his
spare cash in entrenching himself be-
hind various and sundry meal tickets
against the lean days that may follow.
As soontas the election returns are
in and the boys decide whether crack-
ers and milk or Joe's steaks will com-
prise their diet for the next few weeks,
the applications for seats will un-
doubtedly take .a jump.

Best Team Heidelberg Ever
Comes for Season's Finale
With Yearlings


Without attempting to cast any
stormy clouds over the lily-white
hopes of Coach McGinnis' youthful pig-
skin-toters, it must be admitted by
the most optimistic that the yearlings
are in for a large and juicy afternoon's
labor when they take on the Heidel-
berg collegians Saturday afternoon.
The Ohioans claim the most powerful
gridiron machine in the history of the
school. Its line is heavy, its back-
field fast, and in Captain Connie
Clarke boasts one of the best half
backs in the Buckeye state. Outside
of these few details, Heidelberg has a
poor football team.
The Tiffin outfit has taken part in
six gridiron tussles to date, winning
five of them nd losing the sixth to
Hiram,. which school is exceptionally
strong this year. The Hiramites were
also the only eleven to cross the
Heidelberg goal line. Following is the
Heidelberg record:
Heidelberg, 21; Wittenberg, 0.
Heidelberg, 33; Oberlin, 0.
Heidelberg, 6; Akron, 0.
Heidelberg, 21; Western Reserve, 0.
Hiram, 6; Heidelberg, 0.
Heidelberg, 14; Findlay, 0.

Had I

The initial contest of the women's
field hockey season staged on Palmer
lcld lyesterday afternoon resulted in a
-) victory for the sophomores. A
fairly large crowd witnessed the game,
a.though the turnout was not as en-
couraging as had been anticipated.
For the first contest of the season
the game was remarkably well played
and Assistant Physical Director Mar-
ian Wood expressed satisfaction over
the showing. Mary More scored the
goals for the second year team and
otherwise proved the star of the game.
The sale of wieners proved highly
disappointing. The girls attending the

justice to the outlay and in conse-
quence there were no profits for the
management. It is rumored that pop-
corn will be substituted at the next

department of the game, the fresh laws
yesterday defeated the senior legal
lights 12 to 0 in the only interclass
football game of the day. The margin
of the freshmen was much larger than
the score indicates, the near grads
failing to make first down once during
the 20 minutes of play. The Novices
were never held- for downs.
Northway, the diminutive right half
of the younger laws, furnished the
feature of the game by taking the ball
in midfield and running through the
entire senior team for a tochdown.
