Referee-Maulbetsch. Time of ganie
-2 o'clock. Admission free.
The medics and junior lits hook up
on Ferry field this afternoon to settle]
the championship of the Michigan cam-
pus for 1916-17, with Maulbetsch on
the refereeing end of the fray. Ath-
letic books are required for admission.
According to their coaches and train-
ers, both teams are in excellent shape,
with the medics the better off because
their laboratory periods keep them
from breaking training as much as the
lits are able to do. The quarters are
scheduled for 15 minutes apiece, with
frequent resting periods sprinkled
throughout at the request of the short-
winded players.
On previous form the medics seem
to have a shade the better team, but
the recent acquisition of Eberwein has
raised the lit's stock greatly, for no
greater line plunger than this man,
except Maulbetsch, is to be found on
the campus. The medics will depen\I
for the most part upon Hamill, wh
has been doing the best work for them.
The juniors have had the most ex-
perience, their three tie games with
the senior lits forcing them to play
seven times, while the medics have
participated in but three games. The
weight seems to be about equal, though
the junior average is brought up by
Hollenbeck and Pence, giant guards,
while the medics are possessing big
men in nearly all positions.
The medics are confident of vic-
tory, but the lits are also predicting
success. They feel that they will
force the medics to play real football
to winhand believe they will score at
least once.
He 's to Arise for
the Occasisn Now
Maulie May be Tackling 'em From on
High Before Long, if He Does
Wt Lose His Aero Crae
For the first time in his short but
eventful career, Johnny Maulbetsch
has been carried off his feet by an
honor. In fact, the Wolverine grid
leader is quite up in the air about it.
And its a very plane sort of an af-

fair, after all.
It happened this way. A few weeks
ago, Johnny took an aeroplane ride
with Don McGee, the Saginaw avia-
tor. It was his first venture in ozone-
sailing and he became infatuated with
the sport. He resolved that the next
opportunity to fly that presented it-
self would find him literally "Johnny
on the spot."
A day or so ago it was announced
that the campus naval division was to
organize an aero corps. When the
time for the meeting to secure recrits
for that corps came around, Johnn y
was there, waiting for the doors to
open. He signed up for the division
and showed such marked enthusiasm
and interest in the work that the au-
thorities decided to make him chief
petty officer of the corps. He will as-
sume his new duties immediately and
it may be that some future (late will
find Maulie and his Curtiss at his old
stunt of tearing gaping holes in the
enemy's line.

Farrell was rather noncommital on the

and the chances are that the team will

The Michigan Daily takes great
pleasure in presenting its readers
with the first All-American team of
the year, beating Walter Camp, E. C.
Patterson, Wallie Eckersall, and other
well known guessers to it by two
weeks. The team as selected by The
Daily is one of rare power and
versatility of attack. It is hoped by
its sponsors that a post-season game
may be arranged with the championsI
.of the Women's league. This is, how-
ever, merely a matter of conjecture as
Taking the team player by player,
we find a flanker of great promise in
Buttermilk Charley Fairbanks, the
H oosier ghost. Charley's chief value
lies in a peculiarity in his physical
makeup. If Charley stands with his
dorsal fin flush to the line of scrim-
mage, he is absolutely invisible to the
opposition. The great value of such
an end in a forward pass play may be
readily imagined by the discerning
Harry Thaw, at right tackle, should
prove a tower of strength in the line.
It has been found next to impossible
to keep this rather erratic young star
boxed up in any manner whatsoever,
and this quality in him will particu-
larly fit him for a tackle.
We have never seen Henry Ford
play football, but we have never heard
of any project going through that
Henry was not mixed up in somewhere,
so we place him at right guard in or-
der to preserve the proprieties.
Railroad Jack, dilettant and wan-
derer, is placed at center where his
card-catalogue system would enable

him to diagnose plays with a swiftness
and sureness denied to most pivot men.
He should prove indispensable as a
loose defensive center.
Billy Sunday occupies the position
of left guard for. one particular rea-
son. Billy, at the snap-back, will
launch one of his tirades at the op-
posing backfield and the man running
with the ball, raising horrified hands
to his ears, will drop the leather,
whereat the alert Billy will pounce
upon it. This play is considered one
of the greatest feats of modern de-
fensive football
Left tackle is occupied by a man,
who for want of a better name, we
shall call Mr. X. This man is the
unfortunate individual who directs the
campaign of the Republican party in
the state of Georgia. A man who will
tackle a job like that will tackle al-
most anything and such a trifle as a
200-pound back should not disturb him
in the least.
Emma Goldman, she of the anarch-
istic tendencies, is stationed at left
end. Her slogan is "down with every-
thing," and it may be inferred from
this that she would be down with the
ball on every punt.
At quarterback we have a man whose
wide experience at the helmsman's
position should make him the unani-
mous choice of the critics. It is also
hoped that the silver-tongued one's
screeching of the signals will serve
to spell-bind the opposing linemen.
The man occupying the right half-
back position was reconxmended to us
by a certain citizen of Oyster Bay
whom we questioned as to who, in his
opinion, was the greatest half back in
Charley Hughes, at left halfback,
gets his job on the assumption that he
can dodge tacklers as well as he. can
dodge issues. If this is true, he ought
to be a wonder.
Dr. Tom Lovell, Ann Arbor's post-
laureate, is placed at fullback entirely
through his ability as a punter. The
writer has never seen the doctor punt
but if his kicks are like his poetry,
they will certainly be over the heads
of everyone on the field.

show a whole lot more than she un-
covered against Princeton to down the
spirited Blue eleven.
Pittsburg Has Great Team.
Pittsburg ranks with Brown in the
matter of a clean slate. The Panwhers
have gone through their schedule with
impressive strength, except for the
Navy game, which they won by the
close score of 20 to 19. Warner saw
the vulnerability of his defense in that
contest, and has not failed in the mean-
time to strengthen his eleven in this
respect. There has never been a ques-
tion as to the Pittsburg eleven's strong
attack. It has been effective against
all classes of opponents.
When the season is over, the foot-
fall situation is going to be more com-
plicated this year than ever before.
Picking a champion eleven is going to
be one of those tasks for the accom-
plishment of which the jury retires to

system and its star players, Oliphant
and Vidal.
Dartmouth has shown the telling re-
sults of its hard schedule by being held
to a tie by West Virginia. /Few elevens
would care to tackle the schedule
which the Green had this season, and.
the tax on the players has been costly.
The clash between Yale and Harvard
freshmen showed that both the Blue
and the Crimson will have a wealth of
valuable talent available next season.
Harvard won, although Yale had the
strongest squad of youngsters in years.

Williams College is also doped to

Today's meet will be the ninth an-
nual intercollegiate cross country
race. Johnny Overton of Yale won
the eighth meet and the big question
for the Yale fans is whether he can do
it again. He will have the advantage
of being on his own preserves today
and doubtless knows the course from
start to finish, including the loose brick
at the second railroad crossing, only
he will probably not stop to look and
* The men running in the meet have
a tough assignment to get out when
they attempt to solve the chart and
the description which the kind hearted
Yale hosts have had printed for them.
Nothing is left to the imagination in
this little circular except how to in-
terpret the directions. The descrip-
tion of the second mile is quite clear.
It reads: "Turning left 25 degrees
angle, up hill, average grade about 0.8
per cent, on grass, 320 yards; then
turn sharply to left for about 70 yards,
then to right for about 30 yards, aver-
age grade about 7 per cent, stony dirt
road then up hill, etc., etc."
The print advises the men to have
dressing gowns for protection, but it
is rumored that they will not run in
them anyway. Policemen have been
secured for watching the cross roads
in order that the men may not run
aver any of the numerous machines
_xpected to be on hand for the Yale-
Harvard game.

Ann Arbor



1 916d Season Sees
Number of Upsets
Surprisingly Strong Showing of Brown
Proves One of Features of an
Unusual Year
Princeton's .surprising collapse
against Yale and Harvard's shocking,
downfall before Brown furnish topics
for the final week of the football sea-
son. After an uncertain preliminary
season, the Elis have taken a wonder-
ful brace, just as they did before the
Princeton game last season, and
showed unanticipated power. The Ti-
gers, unquestionably better versed in
football knowledge, in better physical
condition, and with the advantage of
playing before a home crowd, fell
down badly.
The luster which might have been
Harvard's this season has faded in
the face of the crushing defeat by
Brown. While Harvard's objective
games are Princeton and today's
against Yale, the Crimson did not ex-
pect any such setback as the Brown
catastrophe. The Crimson substitutes
were intrusted with the task againstl
Brown after the Harvard coaches had
practically admitted that the second-
string men this year were on a par

with the Varsity players. In fact, the
substitutes have played just as impor-
tant a part in all of Harvard's games
this season as the first string men.
Brown Commands Admiration.
As a result of its defeats of Yale and
Harvard, Brown commands more ad-
miration from football fans in general
than any other team in the east. Both
victories have been so decisive that the
Providence eleven must receive credit
for having reached the greatest height
in, its gridiron history. It is the first
time the eleven has ever beaten Har-
vard, and Ed Robinson's mighty eleven
will doubtless go through the season
without a single defeat. Brown has
one more game to, play. Today the
Providence aggregation is to meet the
powerful Colgate eleven which beat
Syracuse decisively on Saturday. There
seems little doubt that Brown will beat
Colgate, although the Hamilton team
will try its hardest to pluck the laurels
which victory would bring.
The results of last Saturday's con-
tests have put a far different aspect
on the betting for the Harvard-Yale
game. It isn't likely now that either
will offer odds, and the enthusiastic
Cambridge supporters who placed their
wagers at odds before the Harvard de-
feat,, are not so entnusiastic as they
were a week ago. Harvard has got to
