Many Candidates Among First Squad
Who Can Fill All But Few
Nine men ended their careers as
regulars on the 'Varsity team when
the last whistle parted the two teams
on Ferry Field today. The time to
start doping out the status for Mich-
igan's 1917 'Varsity is at hand.
To fill the shoes left vacant by
Gracey and Rehor we have Boyd, who
ran the two a close race for a place
all season. From the freshmen come
two scrappy guards, Blackmore and
Fortune, who will give any candidate a
fight for the position.
For the breach left by Niemann the
verdants can exhibit two comers in
Culver and Lambert. The latter at
times this fall exhibited great prom-
In "Morrie" Dunne Michigan loses
one of the best all-around husky men
she has boasted of in years. His
shoes are apt to be rather large for
anyone to fill successfully next sea-
son, but in Hammels and Elmer Cress
the freshmen are bringing up two
fankers who have bright futures
ahead of them.
For his job and the other halves
there are any number of candidates,
the field comprising Sharpe, Ray-
mond, Hanish, Eggert, Brazell and
Bathrick of this year's squad; to-
gether with West, Froemke, Ginne-
bach, Perrin, Barber and Hitchcock
of the yearlings.

With Four All-Americans Again

And now we come to the farewells.
Nine huskies who played today will
fail to report for Yost's 1917 football
squad, every one of the nine a valu-
able man. The men who will not be
seen again in a Michigan uniform are
Captain Maulbetsch, Niemann, Zeiger,
Dunne, Rehor, Gracey, Martens, Wha-
len and Skinner.
First of the veterans comes Captain
John Maulbetsch, alias the German
Bullet. For four years he has been
a prominent person in Michigan foot-
ball circles, one of the years, his first
in the University, playing on the All-
Fresh eleven. The next year his
ability as a halfback was recognized
by Coach Fielding H. Yost and he was
awarded the berth which he has re-
tained for three successive seasons.
In his first season as a 'Varsity play-
er, Maulie was conceded to be the
best backfield man in the country and
landed a berth on Walter Camp's
mythical All-American eleven. Last
year the line was not of a caliber to
allow him to get off his spectacular
plunges and his playing was almost
entirely defensive, and though of a
character that made him the idol of
Michigan football fans, that work
alone was not sufficient to win him a
second place on an All-American
This year he has been captain of
the Wolverines, and has ably filled
the shoes of the best captains that
Michigan has ever boasted. His work
this year has been of high character,
his performance against Cornell last
Saturday paralleling that of the me-
morable Harvard-Michigan game of
two yearsago, when he gained more
ground than the whole Crimson team.
Next on our list is Wallie Nie-
mann, 'Varsity center. Wallie played
on the same team in his freshman
year thatboasted Captain Maulbetsch;
Dunne, Rehor, Zeiger, and a host of
other stars. Wallie received his first
recognition as a 'Varsity player on
the strength of his performance
against the Syracuse phalanx last
season. His playing is not spectacu-
lar, but he is one of the best fighters
on the team. The end of a scrim-
mage usually found Niemann at the
bottom of the pile. There are those
who consider him the most valuable
man of the 1916 team, and certain it
is that such judgment is not without
a good foundation.
Hal Zeiger needs no introduction
to football fans. His stellar work
during the season has not gone un-
recognized by Michigan. Until the
present season he watced the team!
from the $ebch, but when his oppor-
tunity came he was ready. To hm
goes most of the credit for the victory
over Syracuse and 14is generalship
against Washigton and Cornell was
above aeproach. lie not only guidd
the team as ably as any quarterbackI
could, but he contributed long gains
by the route around end and through
the line, and several times crossed ai
enemy goal line.

The gentleman who has been oc-
cupying the position at left end to
the dismay of opponents will leave a
hole when he departs that will
require the combined efforts of
all the coaching staff to fill. "Morrie"
Dunne is another product of the 1913
All-Fresh team and he fought his
way to a berth on the 'Varsity with
a spirit that made him one of the
most prized and valuable men on the
team. His work this year in cover-
ing punts and in handling passes on
numerous occasions set the stands
wild. His ability to receive passes
more than once contributed directly
to Michigan scores and several times
he carried the ball on over the line
for a touchdown. Michigan's speedy
left end was feared by every opponent
of the Maize and Blue. His leaving
will be a cause for Thanksgiving at
Syracuse, Cornell, M. A. C., et al.
Fritz Rehor has played at tackle
for three years and every year has
reacted to his credit. He was a mem-
ber of the team that went down to
Cambridge and gave them such a
scare. In every game in which he
played, and he was rarely ever out,
Fritz layed 'em low. His ability to
stop a play was a great asset to the
team, and he could always be counted
upon to open up a hole for the backs
to charge through. Too much credit
cannot be given him for the battles
he has fought.
Jimmy Whalen is another scrapper
who will be lost to the squad. While
he has had competition of the keen-
est sort and did not play in all the
games, yet when he did play he made
himself felt, never loafing and fight-
ing all the way. He never gave up
and whenever he was sent in some-
thing happened.
Gracey saw his first service under
a Michigan coach this year. He came
from Mt. Pleasant Normal where he
played two years. Thence he trans-
formed his allegiance to the Wolve.
ine stronghold and has proved him-
self to be a football of the 42 centi-
meter variety. His work in the Cor-
nell game will be remembered long
by those who saw the great battle.
Martens saw 'Varsity blood flow for
the first time this season. He gradu-
ated from the fullback's position on
the senior literary class team last
year to a berth on t6 'Varsity. The
speedy end aided in many a tight
place by his sure tackling and hang-
ing on to passes.
Clarence Skinner closes his Mich-
igan football career this afternoon. If
Niemanu is injured, Skinner will re-
place him at center and there is a
strong chance that he will be put into
the lineup at the end of the game in
all events if Michigan is leading. Skin-
ner played on the All-Fresh squad of
1917. He has been on the Varsity
squad for two seasons, work prevent-
ing hhm from coming out one year.
Michigan will be the loser when
these men go,

While it is still several weeks be-
fore Walter Camp will get out his
pencil and pad to start writing his
final selections for the most widely
disputed All-American eleven, the
games already played have brought
to light a host of promising candi-
dates for this mythical team which
never plays together, and which
never even gathered under one roof
until last year.
"Bob" Peck is as certain of retain-
ing his place on. the All-American as
anything can be certain in football.
The Pitt captain is the life of War-
ner's line, and much of the credit that
is given the Pittsburg backs belongs
rightly to the great center.
Our own "Wallie" Niemann is a
fine center, but his lack of weight is
a severe handicap. Niemann is the
most aggressive man on the Michigan
line, however, andhe makes up for
his light weight by fighting every
moment he is in the game.
At guard, Schlachter, of Syracuse,
is the only All-American veteran to
return, and he may have trouble in
retaining his position. Black, of
Yale; Dodman of Harvard, and Hogg,
of Princeton, are three fine linemen
who must be considered, while Rehor
of Michigan, Henning of Pennsylva-
nia, and White of Syracuse, are
guards whoncannot be considered out
of the running.
At endsBaston, of Minnesota, is
having his troubles. Herron, of
Pittsburg, is a man who may break
into the select circle this fall. Her-
ron made the second eleven last sea-
son, and has shown every bit as
strong this year. Other fine ends are
Coolidge of Harvard, Eckley of Cor-
nell, Urquehart of Penn, Comerford
of Yale.
Shiverick, of Cornell, appears to
have the edge on the quarterback
talent, with Smith, of Yale; Morrow,
of Harvard, and Sparks, of Michigan,
all showing good form in their games,
up to mid-season. Shiverick's won-
derful kicking gives him the placo,
however, unless one of the others
shows great improvements in the
final games of the season.
