"Maulie," Smith and Raymond
Make Up Back Field; Yost
Wearing Smile
According to Old King Dope the
Wolverine line should average just
about 190 pounds, and according to
the way it is holding, pounds sterl-
ing. Taking the men who have
been playing consistently on the
Varsity squad all during the fall
season and averaging their weight
according to good slide rule eti-
quette, the result was 190.
The squad looks like a real batt-
ling phalanx this fall. The line is
holding like a quarry and with
Captain Maulbetsch, Smith and
Raymond to carry the pigskin as
they have been doing we almost
x feel sorry for Cornell, et al.

Michigan Grad Ranks Among First
Ten Players; Working With
George Sisler, '15, former Mich-
igan pitcher and captain, has been
the most talked-of youngster to
break into the big league in the
last five years. Sisler went to the
St. Louis Browns immediately af-
ter he graduted from the univer-
sity, and has been the king pin in
the Browns' attek from the first day
he joined the club.
This year Sisler has ranked
among the first ten players in the
league, his batting, has runnitnc
and fielding being all of a very
high order. The former Wolverine
star has been used regularly on firat
base, but his two appearances in
the box this season hve been im-
pressive. Less than a month ago
he outpitclied Walter Johnson in a
brilliant hurling duel, allowing but
three hits and scoring a shutout.
