Big Games On
Ann Arbor, Mich., Nov. 1. After he
had spent the greater part of the week
training a man especially to play full
back against Syracuse, Coach Yost to
day was forced to send the Wolver-;
ines Into the game minus the sen ices
of a player he had hoped would bolster
up Michigan's weakest spot so far
this season: Player "Squire" Torbet
was injured in Thursday's scrimmage.
Torbet's absence and the resulting
shifts in the lineup served to dampen
houea of victory among Michigan's
followers. Somewhat offsetting the!
latest mishap was the appearance for
the first time this year of Craig, whose
great playing was a source of strength
on the 1912 team.
MadUon, Wis., Nov. 1. Eighteen

New Haven, Conn., Nov. 1. Mrs.
Jessie Wakefield of Bristol, mother of
three little children, was found guilty
of murder in the first degree for her
part in the killing of her huvband,
William, last June.
Mrs. Wakefield is not the first wom
an to be convicted of first degree mur
der in Connecticut, but no woman has
been hanged since 1786.
Evidence in the trial showed that
Mrs. Wakefield and her paramour.
James Ptew, conspired to get rid of
Wakefield. While Mrs. Wakefield
took her children out for a walk Plew
partly drugged her husband, took him
out for a waik for several miles and
then shot bim to death.
A knife was driven in the body and
a rope placed around the neck to give
the appearance of suicide. Mrs.
Wakefield then reported to the police
that her husband was missing and
that she feared he had ended bis life.
An investigation resulted in the ar
rest of the couple and both confessed.
It is probable that Mrs. Wakefield and
Plew will be sentenced together.
