Famous writer who is "covering"
Harvard-Michigan football game for
the Evening Ledger.
; By RING W. LARDNEB
!I ST. THOMAS, Canada, Oct. 2D. "Tho
greatest football team ever developed In
the West ' Is on ltn way to Cambridge.
"The greatest football team over dc-
doped In tho West" Is what this year's
Michigan bunch was called In a Itoston
paper which was circulating nromid Ann
Arbor before Yost and his younff men
left there yesterday.
That tho Boston writer was perfectly
accurate In so styllns the Wolverines Is
tho firm conviction of everybody except
the entire population of the United States
and Canada. This piece In tho paper,
which later on stated that Michigan was
"outclassed" by Syracuse last Satur
day, that Harvard should beat Michigan
by at least two touchdowns without
showing anything but old stylo footfall,
and that Maulbetsch was a heavy half
back, had ono good effect. It made Yost
laugh and kept him In good humor alt
day when otherwise he might have been
a disagreeable traveling companion.
Whether tho Michigan team Is the
wests greatest or, not. It is, as pre
viously hinted, on Its way to Cambridge
or rather to Auburndale, where It will
be housed until Saturday afternoon. Tho
departure from Ann Arbor was attended
by the usual send-off ceremonies, the
Undent body doing all In Its power to
simulate confidence In tho team's ability
to lick Harvard, a confidence which docs
not exist. Tho football players probably
were cheered by tho display of enthusi
asm, but at the same tlmo knew per
fectly well that the rooters wcro trying
to hide their real feeling, which Is one
Since the Syracuse game almost every
Michigan man, except the members of
the team, has given up. If tho students
knew how the athletes themselves felt
they might bo ablo to shake off pome
of their gloom, for the footballlsts really
think they havo an even chanco to down
the Crimson, provided, of course, that
the regulars lust through the greater
part of the game.
The varsity squad, listed yesterday,
plus Mr. Millard, was on the train (int
Issued out of Ann Arbor at 2:42 o'clock,
to the accompaniment of Michigan
cheers. The bunch was In chargo of
Yost, the assistant coach, Hugh White;
Farrell. the trainer; Muehlhead, the as
sistant trainer; Jack Leonard, tho man
ager, and Dean M. T. Cooloy.
Director Bartelmo nnd tho scrub will
follow tomorrow on the students' upeclnl.
Tomorrow's tialn will consist of ono car

The train reaches Aubnrndnlo tomor

By EDWARD K. BUSHNELL
"Tho best team that Cornell has had in
years" was the characterization of one
Pennsylvania man to the Quaker coach
ing staff after he had seen tho Ithacans
run through the Carlisle Indians by tho
scoro of 21-0 and again swamp Brown
2S-7. This means that Doctor Sharpo's
cloven has aroused deep respect In tho
Pennsylvania camp In spite of tho In
glorious opening, when two games wero
lost on successive Saturdays.
Tho opinion Is getting more and moro
general that Cornell Is going to bo a
ntlghty dangerous foo on Thankslving
Hay. There Isn't tho slightest doubt about
.tho strength of tho Ithacans right now.
They aro playing the running, rushing
game, varied with fomard pasies, and
they haven't begun to reach their top
There Is ono danger Cornell runs, and
that is that tho schedule of remaining
games Is not a strong one. There Is
only ono strong opponent before Penn
sylvania. That Is Michigan, whose team
is met at Ithaca on November II. Thero
aro two ,ensy jameH before Michigan Is
met. On Saturday Cornell's opponent la
Holy Cross, and- the week following
Franklin and Marshall goes to Ithaou.
Neither team should furnish much op
position for Cornell. In spite of tho fact
that Frankllng and Marshall beat Penn
sylvania. Mention hns heen made in theso columns
liefore that Cornell's 1IU f-che.lulo wna not
proiwrly eriiilunled. Willi the exception of the
Michigan and Cornell camH nt the end of
the season tho first three tiueka rontalne.l the
hardest euni?s In other words Cornell htiM
not l,een pormlttfd to prow grnilunlly stronger
with ench smcesslve game. t may he that
tho easy games which Cornell is now pin) Ins
may hrlng the team' up to tho Michigan nn.1
Pennsylvania games In tho very test nf
ph steal condlilon. ltut hard games, provided
they don't result In Injuries, aro the heat
kind of prnctlee. One thing is certain and
that Is that Pennsylvania won't ho over
conlMent of heatln? Cornell this ear.
This Pennsylvania eleven comlnuev to he
an enigma to its roaches In that It doesn't
show consistent offensive strength Fron.
tackle to taekle the team nverages 2un pounds
or more. The ends are light, hut the tmik
fleld has nn average amount of weight and
speed. And yet In five games the team has
soured enautly fit points, or an average of
less than 0 points per game, it Is douhtful
If such a record could he found of another
I'nnlvanla team In the last '.'0 ears. In
tho old dljs Quaker teams used to score this
many points In ono of tho preliminary games
it Is evident that tho team hasn't found It
self et. hut the followers nf the lied and Illue
are hoping the team gels Into Its stride pretty
soon. In the practices the team seems to put
lots of tight Into the play, hut ther has boen
something lacking in every game to Hate.
Home of the coaches think the difficulty la
thai the eleven contains so many green men.
As a matter of fact thero are In the present
line-up only two men who wero regulars last
year. They are Captain Journeay at centra
and Harris at tackle. It takes lots of time
to round out a team of this tj-pe and possibly
the Quaker rooters will he rewarded by om
sterling football In November.
It Is fo lie hoped that Pennsylvania can
start the regular backfleld. Including Vree
land, against Swarthmore. It is not that
Kuarthmore Is eipected ta be so strong, but
the team certainly needs the sort of con
fidence that conies from having scor4 touch
downs, and It would be a good thing for the
team's sulrii against Michigan to play Its
hardest In this game. Possibly Kwarthmor
will see that I'ennlvunla does that.
