F Athletic Offiee Makes No Confirmation
of Rumored Football
Rumors from various camps have
it that they have games scheduled with
Michigan for the football season of
S 1917. As yet there is no confirmation
from Ann Arbor authorities as to any
game, and in fact it would appear that
there are no games yet scheduled
from this end.
Case Scientific school, according to
Cleveland papers, seems to have a
game arranged with the Wolverine
headquarters. M. A. C. also claims
games with Michigan and Notre Dame
respectively. When questioned anent
these rumors, Athletic Director Bart-
elme refused to deny or confirm any-
thing, stating that he was in no posi-
tion to declare definitely as to any
part of the schedule. Both of these
games are probable, however, judging
from past seasons. Both institutions
have been competing with Michigan fox
several years and it is more than likely
that they will again be seen on a Wol-
verine schedule. Case is an early sea-
son game, while M. A. C. generally
comes about the middle of the season.
The schedule is not likely to be out
before the holidays, and it is merest
speculation as to when it will appear.
Announcement will have to wait for
action by the board in control. Whether
the baseball and track schedules will
be announced before the holidays is
also problematical. In case the board
meets during the next three days, the
two charts may be made public, but
it is extremely doubtful as to whether
such 'a meetin will occur.
Pins and Aim Bands to Be Formally
Awarded at Banquet
At the women's athletic banquet and
cotillion to be held at Barbour gym
Feb. 24, the trophies for high athletic
honors will be formally awarded, al-
though they were actually given out
this week, and three girls are wear-
lng the "M" pin and three others the
arm band at present. The first is
awarded to the winner of 60 athletic
honors and the second to. the winner
of 30. The pin is of arts and crafts sil-
ver with a block "M," and beside those
who have won the emblem this fall,
Janet McFarland, '17, Harriet Walker,
'17, and Paulene Cohen, '18, there
are only four others in the entire Uni-
versity. This season's winners of the
arm band are Lucille Duff, '19, Marion
Galton, '18, and Marjorie Votey, '17.
Athletic honors are given for parti-
cipation in all the regular sports, five
to members of regular teams and
three to substitutes. They are also
given for hikes and elective gym work.
The goal of the honor point winner is
the "M" sweater, and at present the
only one in the University is owned
by Elsa Drittler, '15. Almost equally
desired is the many-chevroned arm
band, signifying a number of years of
service on one of the regular teams.
A large number of these have been, or
will be, won this year, but since 100
points are required to win the sweater
there is little prospect of even one be-
ing given this year.

for results.

the gridiron season shows that players
from seven colleges and universities of
this section are outstanding favorities
for positions on the all-eastern
mythical eleven. The University of3
Pittsburg, whiph many authorities and
writers name as the leading team of
the east, places two men, while Col-
ate, Yale and Princeton also are al-
lotted a like number. Pennsylvania,
Brown and Army each has one man
The consensus is compiled from first
teams, and where more than one com-
bination is selected the players in the
iecond and third elevens are not con-
Adered. In almost every case one or
wo players stand out with an over-
vhelming majority of votes for their
┬░espective positions, and the team thus
armed from these players is a repre-
,eutative one which, if it could be as-
,embled under a prominent coach for a
'ew weeks of combination drilling,
would be a most formidable gridiron
Herron and Moseley as Ends.
Beginning with the ends, the com-
*ilation shows that of the 11 players
named Herron of Pittsburg and
Moseley of Yale are the leading candi-'
'ates. Comerford, Yale; Miller, Penn-
,ylvania; Weeks, Brown, and Harte of
Harvard all secure favorable mention.
For tackles, West of Colgate and Mc-
Lean of Princeton lead, with Gates,
Yale; Wheeler, Harvard; Little, Penn-
sylvania, and Horning, Colgate, next
in line. Black of Yale is the outstand-
.ng favorite for guard, with Hogg,
Princeton, his running mate. The
other votes for these positions are
scattered between Dadmun, Harvard;
Fox, Yale; Henning, Pennsylvania, and
Seis, Pittsburg. Peck of Pittsburg and
Anderson of Colgate are almost unani-
mous choices for center and quarter-{
back, respectively. McEwan, Army, is
the only other center to secure more
than one or two votes, and Shiverick,
Cornell, occupies the position of run-i
ner-up for quarterback.

Purdue, and Pollard, the negro star at
Brown, gather between them virtually
all the votes for the halfback positions,
although Casey, Harvard; Gilroy,
Georgetown, and Hastings, Pittsburg,
are named by a few all-team selectors.
Berry, the all-round athlete of the
University of Pennsylvania is appar-
ently adjudged to be in a class by
himself as fullback, as he is men-
tioned by fully nine out of every ten
writers who have set themselves the
task of naming such teams.
Of this combination five of the 11
players figured in the season's scoring
for their various teams and the total
result of their efforts in this direction
aggregates 261 points. Of this total
Oliphant of the Army scored 112; Pol-
lard, Brown, 72; Berry, Pennsylvania,
35; Anderson, 30, and Herron, Pitts-
burg, 12.
The complete selection and lineup
of this consensus of all-eastern teams
is as follows:

Success of Several Eastern Mentors
During Past Season Brings
Them in Limelight
New York, Dec. 16.-The grand
flourish with which football in the east
caine to a close elevated coaching to
the highest point it ever has reached.
The boys who declare that a leader3
;ets too much credit for what he does,
either in baseball, football, or other
sports, will have to hold their peace
with such mighty records as those
turned in by Laurie Bankart, Tad
Tones, and Dr. Henry R. Williams, not
to mention the steady plugging that
has characterized Percy Haughton's
work ever since he became the Har-
vard mentor.
Jones and Bankart, the latter the
Colgate teacher of football, are given
full credit for the admirable perform-
ances of their teams. Clinton R.
Black, captain of the Yale team, de-
clared after the close of the season
that a better coach never stepped onto
a gridiron than Tad Jones. And Col-
gate students are paying just the same
homage to Bankart. Minnesota stu-
:lents always have felt sure Dr. Wil-
liams was the last word in coaching,
and his showing against Wisconsin;
certainly vindicates the thoroughness
of his work. More than one critic In
the west will declare it is mighty un-
fortunate that Minnesota didn't get
off to the start that marked the work
of others.
Bankart Does Well.
Bankart has been a Colgate coach
for a long time, and has sent many
good teams into action. His victory
over Brown, however, after that team
had thrashed both Harvard and Yale,
brought him out as a real teacher.
Colgate has lost only three games in
three years, two to Yale and one to
Bankart is a teacher of team foot-
ball. He develops no stars like Brick-
ley, Mahan, or some of the other grid-
iron wizards, but he always has 11
men who play together.
Jones is a former Yale star in base-
ball and football. He has been coach-

ing smaller elevens for some time, but
it was only this year that he was called
from Exeter and given the job of show-
ing Eli men how to down the Haughton
