CAMP OVERLOOKS GOPHERS ON
By Mark Shields
Walter Camp saw the University
of Minnesota play the day football
predictions went by the board, and
Illinois downed the Gophers. Coach
Williams' pupils pjayed comparative
ly poor football in that contest, their
worst exhibition of the year. There
fore, Camp did not place Hauser, star
tackle, or Wyman, the best fullback
in the west and the star of all for
ward passers, on any one of the
Chick Harley of Ohio State gets
a place at full on the 'first team and
Baston is end on the same combina
tion. Bachman ofNotre Dame gets
a guard position on the second team,
draws a backfield job on the third
;team. The northwest is honored by
the selection of Beckett of Oregon
and Seagraves of Washington, both
linemen, for the thuxl team.
Following is Camp's first team:
End, Baston, Minnesota; tackle,
West, Colgate; guard, Black, Yale;
center, Peck, Pittsburgh; guard,
Dadmun, Harvard; tackle, Horning,
Colgate; end, Moseley, Yale; quarter,
Anderson, Colgate; halfback, Oli
phant, West Point; halfback, Pollard,
Brown; fullback, Harley, Ohio State.
Bart Macomber of Illinois and
Shorty Long of Minnesota, 'star
quarters of the west, were not gopd
enough for Camp's mythical elevens.
Listing Pittsburgh with the east,
only three players from the west
were - considered good 'enough vto
stand with Camp's first 22.
If Camp had seen Minnesota play
against Wisconsin and Chicago the
line-up of his first two teams might
bar materially different .It is just
'another evidence of the -futility of
trying to rate gridiron athletes on
their work in a single game of the
season. Walter has been more care
ful fills' year and has placed no
coaches on his team.
