And Aaulie Will
Do His Part Too
Maulle was hanging out the rear end
of the rear coach. He was gazing
far ahead, as though he were seeing
a vision. Cornell was written on his
face and blood was in his eye. He
leaned far out and the moment grew
still more tense. It reached the climax.
With a boldness worthy of the cause
we approached. We asked him. This
is what he said: "The boys are full
of fight andconfidence. We're going
to bring home the bacon."


Stutesman of Indiana are also capable
center men.
Three men contend hotly for the
position of premier fullback. They
are Wyman of Minnesota, McCreight of
Washington and Jefferson, and Driggs
of Princeton.
A host of star halfback material
greets the observer's eye. There are

Michigan will send 51 fighting, con-
fident gridders into Ithaca tomorrow
morning, the higgest squad that has
ver been sent out of the University to
meet a football rival. Of this squad
u5 men left last night at 9:43 o'clock
over the Michigan Central bound for
Ceneva, N. Y. Twenty-six more will
leave this evening at 7 o'clock on the
special train bearing the Michigan
rooters, which will go straight through
to Ithaca.
Coach Fielding H. Yost stated last
night that Raymond would be Captain
Maulbctech's running mate at right
half against the Bid Red team and that
Gracey would start at. left guard.
Whether Sparks or Zeiger will start
at quarter is still a mattr for con-
jecture, but the probabilities are that
the .former will call the first play.
However, the chances are that Zeiger
sill get into the big battle before the
whistle ends the game. The team
which will start is expected to be:
Dunne, .e.; Weiman, L.t.; Gracey, l.g.;
Niemann, c.; Rehor, r.g.; Weske, r.t.;
Peach, r.e.; Sparks, or Zeiger, q.;
Captain Maulbetsch, I.h.; Raymond,
r.h.; Smith, I.
Sharpe will not appear against Cor-
nell. Owipg to an injury received
Wednesday night, the speedy half has
been eliminated from the lineup and
will watch the game from the side
lines. Although he will not play in
tomorrow's game, he is expected to be
ready for the Pennsylvania battle a
week from tomorrow.
The team held light practice yester-
day. No scrimmage was staged at all.
Captain Maulbetsch employed his time
in polishing up his toe technique. The
Wolverine leader was drop-kicking
with amazing precision, the ball sailing
squarely between the posts with a
regularity which augurs well for any
such attempts in the coming game. It
is a problem for the Ithacans to solve
as to whether Michigan will try any
field goals, but in case any are called
for the indications point to either
Maulie's doing the work or the job
falling to Bull Dunne. Bull can get
more distance than the captain, but
it is a question whether he has the
accuracy of the Bullet.
Smith seems the logical man to pass
the bal, although both Zeizer and
Peach have reputations along this line.
Peach can throw the spheroid farther
than any other man on the team, but
he has thus far never had a chance
to exhibit his wares in a Varsity game.
It Is possible, although far from prob-
able, that he may be called upon to
smash a hole In the Cornell forward
wall tomorrow.
The confidence of the team anent
this affair at Ithaca is reflected by the
Campus. Michigan rooters have a feel-
ing that their team will carry off the
honors tomorrow. The confidence of
the Wolverines finds its counterbal-
ance in that of the Cornell backers.
The Big Red warriors are resting easy
in their expectations to beat Michigan,
holding that the earlier season games
were not really a test of the nettle of
Dr. Sharpe's team. The showing
against Carnegie Tech seems to have
revived the ambitions of the Cornel-
Hans, although there is another version
of that game current.
Whatever part the respective confi-
dence of the two teams may play in
the contest, it is almost sure to re-
solve itself into a punting duel be-
tween Shiverick on the one side, with
Dunne and Raymond on the other.
Yost has several backfield men in
reserve, who in case they get into the
game, should give a good account of
themselves. Hanish has been improv-
ing all season and is showing ability
in hitting the line. Brazell has been
causing several gentlemen consider-
able worry with his open field run-

ning as well as his plunging, while
Eggert has demonstrated that he can
carry the ball for consistent gains.
Beside those who will open the con-
test, the following left last night:
Zeiger, Martens, Loucks, Goodsell,
Whalen, Dunn, Boyd, Willard, Skin-
ner, Hanish, Brazell, Eggert, Sharpe,
and Bathrick.

In the west there is a rumbling
And a Purple wraith ascends;
The while a Buckeye war-whoop
The quivering ozone rends.
Through the night the word comes
And leaps from lip to lip:
"Northwestern plays Ohio
For the Conference championship."
Then weeps the shade of Hesten,
Eke that of Eckersall,
And Capron, Page, and Vanderboom
Are bowed in sadness all,
For the Gopher hordes are beaten
And the Cardinal banners sag
And Northwestern plays Ohio
For the Western Conference flag.
The eternal hills are leveled,
The cities turned to sand,
Surprise and consternation
Reign through all the land
All the earth is in upheavel
And the very heavens tip
For Northwestern plays Ohio
For the Conference championship.

UIIU uisialu;e 111 preccy last Llme

Battling on a wet, heavy field, the
senior engineers, playing off the tie
of last week, defeated the junior en-
gineers 6 to 0 yesterday afternoon. At
a time when it was still anybody's
game, Rye, in running back a wild
drop kick, was downed on his own
goal line and an argument ensued
about the two points which the seniors
claimed and the juniors denied them.
No score was awarded on this play so
the seniors made argument on the
subject useless by sending Kohr over
for a touchdown in the next half fea-
tured by moonlight.
For the senior bridge builders Tay-
lor and Kohr kept the ball advancing
steadily. Rye and Good of the junior
organization in general neutralized the
gains of the seniors and Russel proved
extremely clever on the defense. Both
classes made attempts at open play
and each team was successful in a
pair of passes.
The lineup:
Seniors-Baker, I.e.; Blecki, l.t.;
Bedford, l.g.; Winch, c.; Crandall, r.g.;
Hyde, r.t.; Smith, r.e.; Dondero, q.;
Kohr, l.h.; Walterhouse, r.h.; Taylor,

Owing to the fact that the contest
was not arranged until the eleventh
hour, Manager Anderson of the fresh
fits wishes to announce that his team
will encounter the sophs of the same
college this afternoon at 3 o'clock on
south Ferry field. All members of the
team are asked to be out promptly at
that hour.
