This looks good. , Sentiment for some time has been iln favor of the return of Michigan. • However, there have been very influ ential men who have opposed this jprofcltlon and their views printed In ithe papers have tended to keep that ’sentiment uncrystalised.A j i Lately there has been such a strong demand for western games, that stu dents and those alumni who wanted western games have been bold enou*n to assert that the conference was a k ,means to western games (which they ( wanted) and not the object of the • western games. ’ “Western games, conference or no jconferencs,” is the demand. Since iMlchigan can’t get these games with out the conference, take the confer ence. i Although the conference meeting tadjourned, Saturday, without any dell jnlte action in the matter, and the meeting of the editors of five of the h ,big university dailies seemed without •avail, the lack of action has had its •good result in stirring the alumni of Jill the Institutions, those of Michigan .as well as those of the conference (schools.

Op posed to this pair were Walter Sterling, driver, and Clarence Jackson, mallet-man. team that could do no better than tie with Central on its home grounds. Thus it is apparent that these live teams', Oak Park, Detrott. Toledo, Grand. Rapids and Muskegon, are very well matched, and flukes might give any one of them a right to the title. It is to be hoped, for the satisfac tion of those who like to see titles definitely decided, that Grand Rapids will accept Oak Park’s challenge. However, it is very doubtful that they will, sot a team that has considered Us season over and lias broken train ing, isn’t very likely to take any chances bry trying to come back. Anew hero was made Saturday in the Array-Navy game at Philadelphia, which the Navy won, 6-0. That new hero was Brown and ho came fronTxt peculiar place for a hero. He came from a guard position and won his title by offensive play. Such a thing is rare. Brown twice booted the ball over the bar by means of kicks from place ment. Both the Army and Navy had battled valiantly for three-quarter* of the game and neither showed a very distinct advantage. It was apparent that the offenslxe strength of the Navy was not great enough to carry the ball over the Army goal line. It was even more ap parent that only a fluke could let the Army score a touchdown. Then it was that Mr. Brown was called upon to aviatp Into scoring ter ritory snd he proved an excellent aviator, scoring two goals from place ment in the waning fourth period. This assures J4*. Brown of a posi tion on the big All-American team tc |be picked by Walter Camp. Last year he was considered. This year he will be chosen, they say. Harry Tuthill. Tiger and Army trainer, returned to Detroit immedi ately after the game Saturday. , More plays gre made against the ieft side of a- defensive football team’s line than against the right side, and longer gains are made around the left en<T than the right end, the de fensive players on both sides of the line being equal. Walter Camp, the Yale head coach and adviser, is credited with the dis covery that players on the left slue are never so effective as those on the right side. Yale specialized attacking the left side and other teams followed the same style and with,as much suc cess as the Ells, but only Yale knew the why and wherefore. Most men are right-handed s and wh«m they play on the right side W the line they use their right shoulders A right-handed player on-the left side of the line is playing out of his natural position.

DECISION HAS LITTLE EFFECT ON lLj\ STOCK Shareholders Believe They Will Ultimately Benefit by Re organization. « •lo rlakt. l»|2, by The New Y.rk s Rrralsa Post (out pa ay.) NEW YORK. Dec. 2.—Until the news of the supreme court's decision in the Union Pacific suit was an nounced, the stock market ruled gen erally firm, with unimportant price changes.' . On the announcement that the court held the combination to be in restraint of trade, the market be came for a time thoroughly unsettled, with a two-point in the price of Union Pacific* ana Southern Pa cific stocks. The rest of the list re acted about one point. There was a quick recovery, however, both the stocks immediately affected going to new high records for the day. This imparted strength to the whole list, which became active on the advance. Later the market reacted fractionally, but it was evident that the decision had not forced any large number of holders to part with their shares. One reason for this may have been the feeling that the Union Pacific share holders would benefit ultimately from a readjustment of the company’s as sets, and that there was nothing in the court’s decree to alarm the mar ket. The markets abroad were de finitely stronger, and the raovemenl\of prices at London. Paris and Berlin showed (pat recent developments in the Balkan situation had reassured sentiment in Europe.

NIGHT EDITION JIM JEFFRIES IS DISGUSTED WITH FIGHTS Loss of Clean Hitters is the Basis for His Feel : iijh DOESN’T LIKE CLINCHERS OR ROUGH WORK ARTISTS Says Counter Blows Won and Kept Championship for Him LOS ANGELES, Dec. 2.—Jaa. X Jeffries, once world’s heavyweight champion, is disgusted wUh the flibt K<uue. He says so hlmdWT JeTs dts gust is based on the loss of clean hit ters and the predominance in the ring of the clinchers and rough work art ists. There is too much holding, clinch ing and other rough work In the ring today," declared Jeff in a recent in terview. “I was not lighting long before I caipe to the conclusion that it wne of as much importance to me to thor oughly understand the rules as it was to know how to hit a blow properly. "I studied them closely and the knowledge I gained was an important factor in helping me win my fights. " Howr you may ask. In the first place in all my contests, I was never warned, cautioned or censured by any referee. There never was any occa sion for it. I knew the rules and obey ed them at ail times. “Why s boxer should hold I never have been able to understand and when I see one doing so, I cannot help but believe that he is afraid of get ting hit. How in the name of heav ens can you hurt any one lh the tins by holding hie hands or arms? You have to hit him to do that. "The man who leads first always leaves himself open to counters more or less * '“Supposing both men adopt the same method of boxing?” you may ask v "That same thing has happened to me many times, and In that case 1 never hesitated to carry the going to the other man, and it was always un der these circumstances that I got cm up the worst. "I won the championship by a counter blow. I also defended my title on four other occasions by a counter. "I beat Bob Pitssimmons with a counter when he was coming to me, and won the championahlp. I later defended It against him and beat him a second time with a left-hand swing ing counter to his body. "I beat Gus Ruhlln and Jim Corbett each with the same counter and de feated Jim Corbett the first time with a left-hand swinging counter to the chin and put him out with one punch. "How often do you see a boxer counter these days? Few can tell what a counter really Is. It Is usually rushing lif with head down and slam bang away without the least effort to block, duck, -os -Jump away from a blow They swtng from all positions uin] all angles and It la getting to be quite a common thing to see a boxer stand with his right foot forward. "H Is a wild rush and Immediately a clinch and then a lot of alam bang on each other’s backs with the open hands. The alapper Is fast coming to his own. When nowadays do vou see a boxer hit and drop bU man for the lull count In one punch? These things were a common occurrence years ago and unless a I oxer could do thlu when he has a good square crack at bis itHn, he was not considered a good hitter. "In my early fights ! was constantly hurting mrhands i.nd thumbs. I used swings prim !j ally f n those days and did not turn nty hr.nds properly wheu hitting. When I learned to hold them correctly I never received an injury to them, bat still stuck to the foolish idea of bandaging my hands. "I came to the '-ouclusion that this was a bad practice us I figured that I never wore them while training anj there should he no good reason for doing so during a contest, so dtscard t ed them and never had the least troub le after. "Good foot work la seldom seen these days. Many seem to think that the more a boxer dances and jigs [ around the ring the cleverer he Is oa I his feet. "Did yon ever watcb Jim Corbett. Abe Attetl or Joe Gans? Any of thee* three great boxers could make you miss a blow by moving their feet an Inch or two. "Feinting Is also a joke. Jim Cor bett was the peer of all men at th?« art. and it surely le an art In Itself "Corbett could, by feinting, make most any man hit any kind of s blow 1 he wanted him to strike, and knowing tbi*. It was an easy matter to counter. “Referees are also somewhat to blame tor the backward move fn the toting game. While many thoroughly t nderstsnd the rules, they are power less to a certain extent when It copies ’to enforcing them. Bu* If went more determined and hesitated leer it taut disqualifying boxers for break ing the rules, they would soon hrln; It tack to the real thing, the sMUEIy art of self-defense." -t2 .
