VARSITY DOWNS SCRUS
Weimann and Boyd Both Back on
Lineup; Niemann Given Rest
SCORE EXHIBITS 25-0
"Mrnlie" and Sparks Go For Big
Gains and Touchdowns; Peach
With "Tad" Weimann and Boyd back
in the lineup in yesterday's scrim-
mage, the Michigan Varsity displayed
just about the best brand of football
that they have shown this year. The
regulars conquered the seconds 25 to 0.
The team as a whole exhibited more
aggressiveness, more "fight" and more
real life than has been shown in either
of the scheduled games or in any of
the practice jousts of the season thus
Captain John F. Maulbetsch re-
sembled the demon "German bullet"
of yore and the rooters smiled. He
ploughed over, through and around the
-scrubs in much the same fashion that
he did against a well-known Crimson
eleven in the Harvard stadium on a
memorable Saturday of two years back.
The line opened better holes, and
held in better fashion. Sparks played
the same dashing game that he did
against Case. Thememory of that
60-yard run against Case seemed to
linger and he raced around the ends
for long gains repeatedly.
Sparks scored the first touchdown
after a long forward pass had carried
Ythe ball up to the '6-yard line. The
second touchdown was contributed by
Peach. The Varsity had their oppon-
ents with their backs to the wall and
they punted. "Tad" Weimann plunged
through and blocked the kiclk, and
Peach picked it up and scrammbled
over the line.
A third touchdown was narrowly
averted when the Varsity fumbled on
the 5-yard line, Loucks recovering. The
scrubs punted immediately and Sparks
raced all the way back to the 20-yard
line. "Maulie" was the man that did
the business, tearing all the way to
the 2-yard line almost at once, and
Hanish went over for the touchdown.
The last counter of the day came
just before Coach Yost called a halt.
"Maulie" sprinted all the way from
the middle of- the field to the 15-yard
line and Sparks lugged the leathe
down to within a few feet of the goal.
After two unsuccessful attempts' to
carry it over, the ball was passed to
the captain and six more points were
Willard was playing center last
night, but the chances are that "Wal-
lie" Niemann will get into the game
on the morrow. "Wallie's" face was
somewhat mussed up in the Case
game and the coach gave him a day
off to help let his features heal. If
Sharpe is in condition it would not be
surprising to see him start at right
half. Sparks will be at quarter and
Maulbetsch and Smith are certain to
complete the backfield.
In yesterday's scrimmage, Hanish
and Brazell filled out the backfield
with the captain and Sparks, while
McCallam was used in "Jimmy" Wha-
len's place at tackle. Whalen will un-
doubtedly be back in the lineup when
Michigan faces Carroll.
FALL TENNIS TOURNEY BEGINS
Red Sox Again
Win in Big Battle
(By H. C. Hamilton, United Press
Braves Field, Boston, Oct. 9.-Bos-
ton's Red Sox took the second game
of the world's series from the Brook-
lyn Dodgers here this afternoon, in
the longest and one of the most sen-
sational struggles of the historic title
tilt. For fourteen innings the teams
battled tooth and nail. In the stands
more than 41,000 men and women
alternately sat breathless expecting to
see the winning run brought over any
Brooklyn's only run was scored by
Hy Myers on a terrific four-base smash
in the first inning. For Boston another
long distance smash counted for their
first run when Scott cracked a triple
to left in the third inning. Cutshaw
then made a costly boot and Scott
scored on Ruth's infield out.
It was growing dusk when the is-
sue was finally settled after two hours
and 39 minutes of bitter fighting. Hob-
litzel started the fourteenth inning
rally when he was given a base on
halls, his fourth of the afternoon.
Lewis sacrified him to second and
Carrigan then sent in Gainer to pinch
hit for Gardner, while the fleet footed
McNally went in to run for Hoblitzel.
The count was 1 and 1 on Gainer as
the crowd sat breathless awaiting for
the turn. Slherrod Smith, who had
pitched peerless ball throughout the
afternoon, sent one of his fast ones
cutting through the gloom for the
plate. Gainer was set for it. He swung.
There was a crash and the ball sped
over Olson's head. McNally rounded
third and scored before the ball could
be returned to the plate. The Dodgers
lived up to the reputation they made
in Saturday's stirring ninth inning.
They fought as few teams have the
courage to fight. They were never
licked until the final run trickled over
the plate. The game set a record for
a world's series contest. The longest
previous game was in 1912 when the
Red Sox and the Giants battled for 11

brought back to the backfield, a move
that is calculated to strengthen the

for the guard positions while Hamils
at right end is looking particularly
good. Cress and Knox are giving a
