Pontius Finds Michigan
Football Men Indifferent
Reports to Work With
Forwards; Only 14
Turn Out
ANN ARBOR. Mich , May 9
"Brute’* Pontius is Indignant, The
former Mchlgan star, now assistant
to Coach Yost if the Mlchtgan foot
ball team, made a special trip ♦o
Ann Arbor yesterday to help get
the men tn line for a big and suc
cessful season next tall —and only
14 men responded to his call for
Pontiu* had expected enough
men to scrimmage with the latter
part of the week, and when so few
appeared for work, he vigorously
voiced his opinion of a school that
would respond so poorly in the face
of such necessity, when Yale. Har
vard and the ether college# which
turned out championship teams had
60 or 70 men m hand for workout#
through*" j? the spring.
Yost left layt week, and Pontius
came tor the purpose of improving
the poorest Hue which ever repre
reated Michigan, the forward wall
of last fall. That there was amph*
room for improvement and a great
need for add nal coaching, was
edmitted by Yost before he left,
when h< rec.uci.ted hi# former star
to return foe 1 few days to help
with the ’ come-hack” of the Wolv
erines In the gridiron sport.
None of the former first team
*nen came out for practice. Nie
mann and Dunne were playing var
sity baseball, and so were not ex
pected but Capt. Maulbetsch and
**Pat* Hmfth were looked for, and
so were Rehor. Weske and the other
tube of the 1915 eleven. fnle4*
more men make an appearance to
day. Pontius may give up the idea
of accomplishing anything rnts
spring, and will leave Ann Arbor
at once. The 14 men out were put
through a long passing and block
