The old grade w»o remember the
famous battles between Hurry-Up
Yost’s loot ball machines and Alonzo
Ftagg’e Maroons or Couch Williams
Gophers in the good old days wher.
half the nation watched the battles
for the weatern championship, long
for their return, and most of them
have always been iu favor of Michi
gan's return to the fold.
The aiudentn in college at the time,
however, fired with resentment at the
alleged dictatorial methods of the con
ference stood out for Independence
It has been a line Ideal that the cam
pus hat cherished ail these years, hut
at present there are Indications that
the student body cares more’for retl
football games than ideals, which
makes it seem possible that there are
possibilities for Michigan's return to

Arft'Uterd.iH Plenty bf reason Jqra
desire among the students for a re
turn to the good old times. Michigan,
done In the w«ist, a solitary giant go
'iig forth each autumn to do battle
with the insolent lords of the east,
was a pkfture which the students once
liked to look uiion. The fact that the
giant came limping home each year
with both eyes closed. a few ribs brok
fM and an ear tinned, made no differ
mce for a time. The campus still i
dung l«v jts idea).
Then came s day a hen patience had
ta reward. Davy Allerdlce and his
band of bruiser* walloped the east to
» fare-you-well, winding up the s« ason
by administering a black eye to Minne
sota, and there was joy on the cam
pus. Next year the vindication was
repeated, but did the insolent lords of
he east open their grins and bul the |
\esfern giant become a membei of
heir exclusive set? Not so you could
lotlce It «
In spite of Michigan’s victories over j
•astern teams even s stranger lu Ann
vrbor would have known that some- j
rhlng was wrong. In the conference
lays a victory over Minnesota or Chi
cago carried with it a very definite sig
nificance. The victor became cham
pion of somethin* tangible to oast and 1
west alike- Michigan conquered both i
Pennsylvania and Minnesota one se*-!
son, hut it didn’t mean anything to |
anybody except a Michigan student j
Minnesota wai still the conference;
champion, and Michigan could claim
nothing but a victory over the cham
pion. lu the conference days Micntgan j
was either champion of the west or
*,he wasn’t champion of the west.
On thk other hand. Michigan gtrlnel
no prestige by defeating eastern
teams, even in years when the eai.i
ern teams were entitled to soma con
sideration by the east's Big Four, and
this year when the eastern teams
which Michigan met were the laughing
stock of the east. Michigan’s position
was suddenly brought home to stu

Coming over from Chicago, the

know that Coach Campbell s lighter
men would have to depend upon the
free style of fighting to win the
Tbahksfivlng contest. Last year, the
V. of D. eppped from Loyola on its
home grounds. This year they came
over here to be squelched.
Had the Loyola bunch been awake
at all, they matt have known that
Capt. Kelly and his men expected to
use forward passes to beat them.
Had they been wise at all. they would
have been watching for a fusillade or

erous distance runners are on
their way liome today without
having competed in the annual
Youkors Marathon event. The

of the weather, but many of
the athletea insisted on running
anyhow because many of them
had traveled long distances to
take part In the run. Many of
them were from Canada and the
middle west.
graduate body at Michigan could en
thuse. Defeat meant football oblivion.
Michigan had nothing to gain by vic
tories and defeat spelled ruin.
What happened football history.
Syracuse, the plaything of Princeton,
rwept Michigan off her feet; Pennsyl
vania;- defeated weekly by the fourth
raters of the east, rallied like a real
team and overcome such a lead as
Mlchlgn had never had overcome be
fore; poor, old Cornell, tl« doormat
of the eastern football teams, scored
cn Michigan, aud but for u bit of in
dividual work by Quarterback Huebei
in the closing moments of the game,
would have held Michigan to a victory
by but one touchdown.
These things provide a reason for
the old conference rumor, which is b*
log passed from mouth on every street
corner In Ann Arbor, and which is
being discussed by thousands of alum
ui in every part of the country.
Why-shouldn’t Michigan return to
the conference? At present she dif
fers on but one cr two points from the
rules of the conference teams. She
still maintains her schedule accord
ing to conference Ideas as to number
of games to be played and her eligibil
ity rules are the same.
The training table bueaboo is the
only thing which stands between
Michigan and the conference. Other
reasons may be advanced, but after
they ftfe all diagnosed carefully, the
training table la the only real stum
bling block In Michigan's path. With
thn matter disposed of there would
be no trouble In getting rid of the
other objections, and It is felt nere
that the conference and Michigan
ought to get together and settle their
differences quickly.

NEW YORK, Ndv. 29.—The maiu
topic of conversation in baseball
circles here today was the reported
break between Garry Herrmann, presi
dent of Ibe Cincinnati Baseball club
and Charles W. Murphy, of Chicago,
which. It was believed here today, will
cause real trouble for the Chicagoan
when the National league meetß here
next month.
Herrmann, who took Murphy's part
at the recent meeting when Horace
Fogel was oxpelled, claims that Mur
phy double-crossed him and It la like
ly that If President Lynch presents
charges against Murphy on Dec. 11),
they will have the enthusiastic sup
port of the Cincinnati manager.
The break came after Murphy, ac
cording to the close friends of Herr
mann, had agreed on a trade where
by Joe Tinker was to go to Cincin
nati in exchange for Mike Mitchell
and Phelan of the Reds and Ked Cor
ridon of the Detroit Americana. This
deal was arranged Wednesday night It
was said, and Murphy and Herrmann
were to have met yesterday to sign
the papers. Instead Murphy did not
show up and when the Cincinnati mag
nate got hold of him Jlf telephone
Murphy said that he had changed fils
When Tinker heard of. thin'lt waa
reported today he sought out Murphy
and accused him to his face of break
ing an agreement and told him flaHy
that, rather than play with Chicago
next season, he quit profes
sional baseball for all time.
Baseball men here believe that Mur
phy plana to force Herrmann to ac

for the Clncinnutis despite the fact
that the "Peerlets Leader'* L unalter

in spite of the broad demand for mon

most cases were fractionally Higher

said, “and 1 do not believe 1 struck a
foul blow. | think that's a poor way
to win a championship, anyway "
Ritchie merely grinned today whaa
told that Wolgast was protesting.
“That's a flue way to be, ’ he r»
marked. “Everybody knows that Ad
fouled me twice and that Griffith
couldn’t do anything but disqualify
him. Although he was fouling me. I
,v. as not by any means weak and I
could easily have finished him *n an
other round. I just, simply had Ad's
number and I still have his number.'*
The general impression among flgbt
fans here today seemed to be tha;
Wolgast preferred to lose on a foul
rather than have a knockout scored
against him.
From the tenth round to the end.
the California boy began to wado into
Wolgast and demolish him. H« had
him in distress in the fourteenth and
in the fifteenth all but scored a knock
out. »
in the sixteenth Ritchie went afte
his man with both hands, landing pun

clearly g*>: ;> and staggered heavily
about the ring.
With a minute of the sixteenth round

bout, thinks Wolgast delivered a de

“Ad delivered two foul blows/' hs
said in a statement today. "It looked
to me like he tried to lose on a foul,
knowing a knockout was imminent
For eight rounds he seemed to have
the better of the milling, but Ritchie
came back and fought the champion
iff his feet. 1 warned Wolgast when
he struck the first blow, but he delib

blows were intentional.”

he would try to have the match be
