By BIND W. GARDNER ANN ARBOR, Mich., Oct. 23. Tho Evening Ledger correspondent hail to pay for his own breakfast yesterday because he got up too late for training table. To switch back to the first per ."on. I landed at athletic headquarters about 9 o'clock and found l'ost, the as sistant coaches, Schultz and Cole, and tho freshman coach, Douglass, amusing themselves with a now game of Indoor football, In which tho spinning of a wheel plays a prominent part. The gams held tho interest of Tost, Douglass and Cole for only a. little while, and they went about their several duties, but Mr. SchulU and Mr. Lardner played a full game of four periods. Mr. Schultz whs Michigan and Mr. Lardner Har vard. Harvard scored a touchdown and field goal before Michigan got started, but tho Wolverines braced, and at half time the count was 15 to II In the Crimson's favor. In tho second half Michigan rolled up IS points In short order and held Harvard scoreless until the last minute of play, when a 40-yard forward pass gave Haughton's men one more touch down. The goal was missed and tho final score was 50 to 21 In favor of Michigan. Mr. Schultz was In good humor the rest of the day, even when he was In structing the willing but inexperienced Wolverine linesmen at Fern' Field In tho afternoon. The varsity squad reported to the coaches at 2:50 o'clock, and the main feature of the afternoon's program was signal practice. There was no real scrimmage, but two squads of forwards wero sent against each other for drill in blocking and opening holes. Benton, at left end, rehearsed kicking goals from touchdowns, which Is pretty good evidence that Michigan Intends to make touchdowns next Saturday, for no time Is being wasted on tho Pennsyl vania and Cornell games these days. LECTURE ON SIGNALS. Larry Splawn and Tommy Hughitt punted for a spell, and Splawn tried his point-kicking toe, with good results. It was dark when a halt was called, but the coaches had an Indoor class In sig nals at night, and the boys also were re quired to listen to a lecture from Yost. They were Anally dismissed, with orders to bo at tho Michigan Central Station at 2 42 o'clock this afternoon, when the tart will be mado for Auburndale, near Cambridge. From the time the train leaves Ann Arbor until It arrives at Auburndale there will be no practice for the Wolverines, owing to tho Pullman Company's failure to build cars anywhere near tho size of football fields. But there may be more lectures and a rulo quiz or two from Mr. Yost, who finds it an easy matter to make Ms voice heard abov the well-known i olsa and confusion of a Journey on the fateam cars. The team expects to reach Auburndale about noon on Thursday, and In the aft ernoon will engage In 6ignal practice on the nearest convenient field. It is barely possible that Yost, In order to accustom his bunch to the ferocity of Harvard, will send the Michigan first Btrlng men Into a scrimmage against tho animals at Norumbega Park. Haughton will turn over the Stadium to tho visitors on Friday afternoon, so it can bo seen at a glance that he Is a better sport than Connie Mack, or. perhaps, ha is profiting by the experiences of Connlo subsequent to his refusal to let the Braves frolic at Shlbe Park. LIST OF TEAM. Following is the list of varsity candi dates who will leave for the East this afternoon. Captain Haynesford. Watson, McIIale. "ochran, Itelmann, Benton, Staatz. Dunne, James, Itehor. Qulal, Norton, Flnkbelner and Whnten. and backs Hughitt, Bushnell, Zetger, Hubel. Splawn Maulbetsch, Lyons, Bastlan, P.oehm and I'atlett. Mr. Whalen Is to be taken along as a ! ward for past services and not because there Is any chance of his helping the ause. His ankle was badly twisted In the fatal Syracuse encounter Maurice Dunne, son of the Governor of Illinois, Is first substitute l.-f t end and will get Into the Harvard game If Ben ton wears out or shows signs of slip ping. Staatz, who will start at right end, Is another of the innumerable Michigan men who have been hurt, but his leg has yielded to strenuous treat ment, and he gets round the field now aa If nothing had been the matter. Greenness seems to be the only fault of Michigan s regular tackles, Cochran and Relmann. They are both husky kids and apparently willing to take all that's coming to them. They will get plenty If the Harvard tackles are any thing like they have been In recent years. Young Cochran has a complexion that an actress might envy and It Is the earnest prayer of all Michigan that the big Harvard brutes don't spoil It for him Hupghltt was In all the practice yester day, and his arm seemed less stiff than it has been. The rest he will be forced to g'vo It on the train may be just what It needs. The Michigan boys are not frightened by reports that Harvard's mastery of the Canadian passing game will give It a big advantage. The fact that Michi gan will pass through Canada on the way East should more than offset this. LANDMARK THREATENED Harvard has lost Its elms and now another landmark Is threatened. The manager of the football team has fal len Into belief In newfangled Ideas of sanitation and has decreed that the old tin bucket of Pooch Donovan, trainer of the eleven, shall be abol ished, The bucket was an Institution all-embraclna In Its functions. Players In the midst of battle were sponged from the water of the bucket and with a fin democracy drank from It as well. The. men rejoiced to see the bucket coming from the sidelines, even as Kipling' Tommies rejoiced at the ad vent of Cunga Din. But now the bucket has been demolished. This season when time out Is called Dono van Will advance to the gridiron bear ing a tray, and on the tray will be In dividual dunking glasses. , i i i i . .. , . --ii i i i i .... .... . , t 'I '"" .

BUSHNELL If what the Fennslvanla cloven Is able to do to the freshmen Is a fair meas ure of Its power, then yesterday's Bcrlm roago indicates a decided Improvement In form. It Is true that tho first year men scored two goals from field, but each was an easy chance and made pos sible by varsity fumbles. Not until the freshmen led with a score of 6 to 0 did tho varsity get up enough fight to quickly score two touchdowns. For the greater part of the practice the varsity showed the better attack and toward the end of the work the upper classmen seemed able to make all their plays go even the forward pass. Tho conches were almost besldo themselves at the manner In which the usually reliable Tucker and Murdock fumbled. But thero was some reason for one of Tucker's costly fumbles. That was the really remarkable kicking of Quarterback "Bert" Bell of tho fresh men team. Bell mixed u lis kicks in such splendid fashion t. ho drew forth words of commendation from Head Coach Brooke himself. Tho happy feature of the Quakers' work when once they found themselves was the drive to the whole attack, the rushing of Tucker, the manner In which Hopkins nnd Gotwals handled forward passes and the running of Murdock. who filled In at quarterback in place of Mer rill. The Improvement In Murdock's work was especially pleasing to tho coaches, because they have several times nearly had nervous prostration thinking what might happen if Merrell were hurt. Relieved of the necessity of holding Murdock In reserve for an end, tho coaches have put him into tho quar terback position, where he will be an understudy to Merrell. Murdock handled tho ball loosely some of tho time, but he got over this toward the end of prac tice and also exhibited commendable skill in returning kicks. Both of these rut the varsity In position to score touch downs. The Pennsylvania eoachfi are up acalnst a harder problem rlRht now than many per siiia realize This la because there are to few capable aubsthu'ea. The conthes therefore nre praying that ttwy may set through the Bvvarth. more game without Injuries and that they may enter ihe Mlihigan contest with an ab solutely sound team which will give them a chance to start In the nam' way against Dart mouth a welc later There are no nrst-olass ends to replace either t'rquhart or Hopkins, while In the backtield there are no men of all around streneth to replace the four now conslilere.1 the first strlns Avery, for Instance, la a coo.1 offensive back, but he Is wek on de fense, whtls R' uafeller strong on the a fenii la weak on th offense.

Secretary Joseph Kalbfus, of tho State Game Commission, has In this third arti cle to the Evenino LnDaEn endeavored to bring homo facta concerning the game question In this State. "Wo are being forced Into a position," writes Secretary Kalbfus, "where we must fight If wo hope to retain privi leges along sane game lines. Wo are protecting game in this State not to look at and take pictures of, but to kill. The sportsmen of this State today are not paupers, begging the State to make ap propriations for their use to the Injury of hospitals or schools or any other thing. After next June their money collected through the resident hunter's license will be used 'to pay the freight,' not only for tho protection of game, through the taking of which they, the sportsmen, de rive pleasure and benefit, but they will also pay for the protection of song and Insectivorous birds, the value of whose Ufa work nffects all the people. "It Is not the province of the Game Commission to say where game can best be killed. It Is our duty to protect game that It may Increase to the benefit of thoso able to secure It. AH I can, there fore, cay at this time Is, our deer aro Increasing and aro becoming quite plen tiful In many of the counties of the State. "I believe we have more black bear In Pennsylvania than can be found In any other State In this Union. "Ruffed grouse have hatched well and appear to be plentiful In the sections where extensive forests are located. "Quail are quite plentiful In some sec tions of the .State, those sections that were comparatively free from snow and Ice last winter. In nome sections theso birds have almost disappeared. "Rabbits seem to abound everywhere, and It Is now up to sportsmen to not only obey the law themselves, but to see to It that others obey t. Game of the State belongs to hunters aa never bo fore, nnd pvpry man who pays his dollar should take a dollar's worth of Increased Interest In seeing to It that his game Is not killed contrary to the provisions of law. Every man who pays his dollar should also help to correct existing er rors In the game laws of the Common wealth. "The Game Commissioners of this State are working for the State entirely with out pay, not even the money they ex pend as expenses being returned to them. It Beems to me they are doing their work well, considering what they have to do with. They can rto much better If those Interested will help In this great work, and I beg of those disposed to knock to throw away your hammer and help carry straw, for It Is Just as hard today to make good hrlcks without straw aa It was In the olden time We beg of you to help us to help you."

The prospect for a winning basketball team representing the freshmen class of the University of Pennsylvania appears bright at this time, according to Jack Kfougli, who will coach the first-year men. He expects to form a five around Art Jefford, tho all-scholastic choice for forward, from the Northeast Manual Training School, and Lou Martin, who played forward for the Southern High School and was picked as the running mate with Jefford. Stack, Grant and welsh, the latter captain, are from the Ufan Academy five, of Franklin, Mass.; Junes, from Cleveland High School, of 'leveland. O.; Deerlng. who played on Penn Charter; Bfrt Bell, who led the Haverford School five, and Dewhurst, formerly or Brown I'teparatory School, have notified Coach Keough.

At least It Is to be hoped that the scandal end of the proposition will be en tirely omitted. Franklin Field will have lt'e acatlng capacity Incrcasod to 30,000 nnd etlll tha demand for tickets will probably be so great that not half the peoplo who want t see the game will be able to get Inside the enclosure. This proves conclusively that Phil adelphia needs a new stadium where such con tests can bs held and the people accommo dated. Hank Gowdy waa given a great reception by the citizens ot Columbus, Ohio, yesterday. Ar might have been expected Josh Devore was present to assist and he assisted In tho cere monies. Some day something Is going to hap P n In tha barehall world without either De vore or Ira Thomas getting In on It. Dut that will bo many yeara from now, probably about 1007. Gowdy, by the way, has turned down a nedernl Ien gun offer according to organized baseball reports. It Is said that he and his 1 1 m us battery mate, Dick Iludolph, were offered a big sum, but refused to even talk over tho matter with the Fedoral agent. Walter Johnson differs from the riravea' heroes. Ho Sa open to any kind of a proposi tion which will benefit him, This Is the at titude of nearly every ball plaver In the land nnd Is one for which many of them have been censured.

S. Mitchell, world's weight thrower, luui the following comment to make about the radical proposed amendments to the Amateur Athletic Union constitution: "A serlH of very radical amendments have been proposed to the Amateur Athletic Union i Mliui.m and they will come up for legis lation at tho next annual convention here, the hetond .Monday In November. Tho gist of these changes la that Army and Navy athletes be allowed to compete without registration; that women swlmmera and other female com petitors he permitted to compete and register, and that professionals be allowed to show In team exhibitions with amateurs. Should th new amendments pass the Amateur Athletlu Union will become little iiiKi than nn nn.iex to professional sport. "In the new amendment to article S of the constitution It Is proposed that an amateur be eligible to compete against a professional In baseball, football and basketball. What will the Y. M C.

'One vital point In connection with tha froposed changes Is that a college man is at Iherty tn represent hl college as his resi dence. Thin means that a man can come from anywhere and represent a college in New York, and the same rule applies to any part of the United Htatea An athlete has the option of representing his college or a club in the ter ritory of the college."
