Chicago, April 17.-Dispite the pro-

TO

PLAY FOOTBALL
DESPITE WAR CRISIS

May Include Military Drill in Daily
Workout of the
Squad
Coach Fielding H. Yost arrived in
Ann Arbor yesterday afternoon, held

a short consultation with Athletic Di-
rector l3artelme at the athletic office,
talked to a group of football candi-
dates who were hastily gathered at
Ferry field, and announced that spring
football practice would be continued
despite the present war crisis.
Every football candidate for the
1917 Varsity is desired and expected
to report on Ferry field this afternoon.
Assistant Director Edmunds will be
at the Ferry field clubhouse at 3
o'clock sharp, to hand out suits and
equipment to the men who have not
already secured outfits, and stiff prac-
tice will immediately be instituted by
the "Hurry Up" man himself.
"Prepare for Something"
"We are going to prepare for some-
thing," said Yost yesterday afternoon,
"and it will be either football or war."
The coach is keenly enthusiastic over
the present war situation, believing
Tlat every mother's son should be pre-
pared to take a hand for Uncle Sam.
Nothing is, however, more essential
than perfect physical trim, and those
who start work under the veteran
coach in a football suit this afternoon
are assured that tlU physical element
will be well taken care of.
Coach Yost probably will be here a
week or 10 days, and within a short
time Assistant Coach Douglass and
Line Coach Pontius are also expected
to be on the job. Whether or not mili-
tary drill will be included in the daily
workout of the football squad will not
be decided until the plans of Major
Castle are announced with reference
to the athletes.
Denies Cancelling Schedules
Athletic Director Bartelme yester-
day denied the report which has ap-
peared in Chicago papers to the effect
that Michigan's tootball schedule had
been cancelled. The recent ruling by
the board of regents affected only
baseball, track and tennis. The only
action in regard to football taken by
the athletic authorities was the send-
ing out of letters to all institutions
which the Wolverines are scheduled
to meet next fall, stating that unless
the war continued up until about the
middle of September, the football
schedules would be played as ar-
ranged.
The decision to go ahead with spring
football will therefore serve a double
purpose. If the present war is ter-
minated in time to permit the playing
off of the football schedule, Michigan
will have her gridders in condition to
step into the traces next fall; if the
war should continue, the men who now
report at Ferry field will have the
benefit of phys'ical training which will
prove invaluable to them when they
are called to arms.
What kind of work will be handed
out to the football men was not stated
by the coach, but Yost is irery anx-
ious to have every man report today.
The "Hurry Up" man has come a long
rvay to conduct the spring training;
its necessity is obvious; the. time is
short; and the benefits which will be
gained are up to the men themselves.

Dunne Will Go
To Military Camp
When Morrie Dunne left the Univer-
sity at the beginning of the late vaca-
tion in order to enter a special train-
ing camp at Culver Military academy,
Coach Lundgren lost his main back-
stop. Morrie's shoes. will be hard to
fill in spite of the fact that there are
able men to step into the vacancy.
He practically had his position of
last year cinched, due to his improved
hitting ability and experience behind
the bat.
Football Men Go
Into NavalMilitia

Captain Smith, Raymond, Hildner,

and

Michigan's future football schedules
need no longer be a source of worry
to those who fill the Maize and Blue
athletic cards.
Be Wolverinedom within the confer-
ence or without, in the East or in the
West, let either M A. C., Kalamazoo,
or the University of Detroit, drop the
Yostmen from their schedule, and the
last-mentioned gentlemen can be ac-
commodated with a contest by the rep-
resentative aggregation of the seventh
and eighth divisions of the Michigan
Naval militia which will make the reg-
ular Michigan cast travel to corral.
Among the young men included in
the roster of the divisions may be
found the names of Pat Smith, Phil
Raymond, Eggie Hildner, and Al
Loucks, Varsity fullback and halfback,
and reserve end and halfback respect-
ively, all of them men who have ap-
peared in Yost lineups in regular
games. These four athletes, assisted
by a score or. more of class stars,
would form the nucleus of a pigskin
squad that would be able to give bat-
tle to the best of them.
ALL-FRESH BASEBALL TEAM
STILL IS HELD FOR PRACTICE
Lack of Outside Competition May Pre-
vent Award of Nu-
merals

Campus fans will yet have an op-
portunity to see the Varsity baseball
team in action on Ferry field.
If the latest plans of Coach Lund-
gren materialize there will be a game
on the regular diamond every Satur-
day, if the weather permits. The
Varsity coach is hoping to organize a
team of ineligibles to play the Varsity
in a sort of three cornered league com-
posed of the Varsity, the Guerilla in-
eligibles, and the All-fresh.
Coach Maltby expects to have the
yearlings in sufficiently good shape to
start mixing things with the Varsity
in short order. As yet nothing can be
statedrabout the strength of the 1920
team but they are expected to un-
cover enough baseball to keep things
interesting for the Varsity. The in-
eligibles can easily be recruited to a
point where they will be able to give
the Varsity representatives a hard rub.
With men like Dale Maltby at first,
Tom Adams at short or atthird, Rus-
zika in the box and Johns in the out-
field, enough others could be gathered
to make up a strong aggregation.
The coach can furnish any team
with a battery. With Morrie Dunne
out of the ranks, the coach loses his
first string catcher, but Mattson, Mor-
rison and Haidler still afford chances
for a capable backstop. Any one of
these men can be shoved over to an
opposing team, while pitchers are
abundant. Men who were formerly out
for the Varsity will probably be called
on in making up the miniature league.
It is hoped that such a series of
games would in some measure replace
the schedule made void by the action
of the Regents and the Executive com-
mittee of the board in control of ath,
letics.
Lundgren a/inounces that there will
be regular practice every day on Fer-
ty field. The team will be put through
a hard workout regularly. Several
men have been working over vacation
and about a dozen reported yesterday
for practice.

DRILLS;
IN MIS-

Another call to arms has been is-
sued by All-fresh Coach Dale Maltby
for this afternoon. Rain, war, can-
cellation of outside games, and Mr. Et
Cetera have all conspired to put the
damper on the young baseball players,
but the coach is still hoping for the
best and saying nothing about what
the worst will be.
It is still a question whether the
boys will be ' given their numeral
awards, owing to the lack of outside
competition, but the coach is emphatic
in his appeal for the usual turnout at;
3 o'clock tomorrow.
Five Universities Drop Athletics
Philadelphia, April 17.-Official re-
ports that five universities have drop-
ped competitive athletics for the time
being have been received by the Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania's athletic man-
ager. The five: Yale, Harvard, Prince-
ton; Cornell, and Michigan. Dartmouth
reports that it has also dropped con-
tests, but the report is unofficial as
yet.

The Maize and Blue's galaxy of track
and field athletes have taken a lengthy
vacation from the realms of the sweat-
er, running pants, and spiked shoes.
It seems that the decision relative
to athletics rendered just before the
spring' recess has had a chilling and
depressing effect upon the proteges
of Farrell. But few of them have been
found in their accustomed places of
late.
The track coach is still somewhat up
in the air as to just what will consti-
tute the remainder of the season's ac-
tivities. Provided the action of last
month is reconsidered by the Regents
next week, it is likely that the dual
meet with Notre Dame will be put on,
and that Michigan will send a squad
to the intercollegiates at Philadelphia.
Captain Carroll took a flier at drill
during recess, but is expected to don a
running costume this week.
Farrell lost one of Michigan's most
promising 880-yard men for the season
when Schuster enlisted in the Missouri
national guard last week.
