Football Squad Will Leave Coney
Island Training Ground To
morrow Night.
By O'Loughlln.
Monday marks the start of the making of a
football team for the university. The squad haa
been at Coney Island since Sept. 1, on a condi
tioning sojourn, but the coaches have done little
TV ith the men save to prepare them for the scrim
mage woik on Northrop field
The Tsquad, coaches and rubbers will descend
on the city tomorrow night and will make their
first appearance on Northrop field the following
afternoon. At-that time there will doubtless be
numerous additions to the material for the
coaches to handle, as man) of the aspirants and
eome of the old men have not left their work to
take part In the Coney Island proceedings
Manager Reed and his assistants have been
busy preparing the big field for the coming of
the team Fence building Is well under wai and
the gridiron will be protected from the rush of
the crowds by a stout wire fence Much care
has been expended upon the surface of the field
of play, and since the close of the early spring
games the field has been put in splendid condi
Pranks in Camp.
From all reports Mr. Zeglin, king of Coney
Island, has been having his troubles with the
equad One night lecently two of the prospec
tive gladiators started a midnight investigation
Of the boat used in ferrying passengers from the
mainland to the island, They found that the
boiler still carted a steam pressuie of about
forty pounds. Casting about for material where
with to start a disturbance, they found a strong
cord and a heavy wrench. The whistle, the
cord and the wrench were soon doing fine team
work, and after letting the engine wake the
echoes with several wild shrieks the wrench
was dropped and Its weight pulled open the
whittle until it was working in splendid shape
and waking up the countryside for miles around.
Into the Woods.
This accomplished, the conspirators beat a hot
foot march thru the woods and crawled into bed

the disturbance He s=oon put an end to the
whistling and is stiU looking-for the offenders
Now the members of the squad show up for
breakfast and all remark knowingly to the land
lord "Nice quiet night, Mr Zeglin As
everyone makes the same remark and all look
equally .innocent the king of the isle Is still in
the dark as to the disturbers He will know

wardJust who added to his cares the year
Makeup of Team.
The makeup of the team is just as much in
doubt at present as It was before the squad
assembled. Not before the latter part of next
week will the followers of the game be able to
have a line on all the availables If the come
backs live up to promises and are able to
devote their time to the game this fall. Min
nesota will have the nucleus of a strong team.
A few failures, however, would put Minnesota
prospects in the questionable column.
Yost's Players, from the Present
Outlook, Will Average
201 Pounds.
There is much joy among University of Michi-
^-n-gan alumni Coach Yost gives the pleasing in
formation that James, the old quarter, has- re-
moved his conditions and will join the squad in
a day or two ready to work for the team James
lias been out of athletics for a year on account
of deficiencies in his studies, and is now eligible
for the first time
It is also learned that Lawrence, who played
"fnlback two years ago, has also removed his
conditions and may join the team again this
fall He now_weighs 230 pounds and is very
speedy His return is not assuied, however,
while that of James is, and this fact alone is
|1 enough for one day of jollification at Michigan
Michigan alumni are just as confident thai
Michigan will win over Chicago this year as they
have been for the past four jears. Odds of two
to one were offered by a Michigan man yester
aj^ day afternoon, and one bet at even money was
f^'-made on the game
The Michigan team is picked as follows and
jyilll average 201 pounds. At ends are Garrells
"and Stuart, at tackles, Curtis and Ackerman,
at guards, Graham and Schulte, at center.
Schultz at quarter, Norcross at halves, Clark

Rose was considered invincible, as he had de

Coe worked patiently for four years to ac

a way that leaves no room for doubt He beat
Rose at shotputting, breaking the latter's world's
record and making a mirk of 9 feet 6 inches

There will 'be fine football on the high-school
gridirons this fall This much can be seen
from the caliber of the men who aie grilling
off supeifluous flesh under the ordeis of the
coaches, tho the season is but one week along.
All fotr schools have regular coaches, and in
every squad there is evident a determination to
win and a willingness to do hard work which
promises well for, the championship contest to
While immediate interest centers about the
Minnesota Central game of next week, the ulti
mate question in. the mind of every follower
of the scholastic game is "Will North Side be
able to hold the championship'/1"
Every team
is training with the idea of wresting the title
from the Fremont avenue school, while the Bur
gan and Marks are trying to build up a heavy
and fast machine which will be able to win
first honors a^gain.
North Side Showing.
Football is full of surprises, and the only
safe time to make prophecies is after the last
game has been played As things stand at
present, Norjh Side would seem to have slight
ly the best of it in weight and numbers. More
over, the whole school is enthusiastic over the
victory of last fall and will support its team
to the finish.
In weight East high seems to class with
North, and has the same number of first-team
men back in the game Centralis lighter, but
has seven first-team men out as against six for
the other two. South Side is the unknown
quantity in the equation There are no veter
ans with any established reputation in the
orange and black bunch, and time alone will tell
what Coach Goltbloom can do with the material
at hand In weight it matches well with that
which is working under Coach Morse.
That North Side is regarded as the one team
which Is certain to last to the finals was clearly
manifected at the meeting of the managers
Thursday. All three of her competitors wished
to make the North Side game the last in their
schedules, and it was over the unwillingness
Of the, Northtown managers to play an in-town
game after Nov. 10 that the negotiations came
to a deadlock.
How the Fremont avenue men rank, their op
ponents was evident from the schedule which
Manager Gaylord attempted to make. It was:
South, Oct. 80 Central, Oct 27 a practice
game, Nov. 3, and Bast, Nov. 10 East Side
was the only school to accept the date offered.
Schedules Unsettled.
The schedules are still very much in the air
It is settled that South and Central are to
meet Nov. 10 and provisionally agreed that East
and South play Nov 3 Central will play the
university Sept. 23, and is planning'an alumni
game for Sept 29 Shattuck, Pillsbury, Ham
line, Macalester, Duluth and the St. Paul high
schools are the teams which will fill the early
dates, but while the managers are writing many
letters, nothing definite has been settled. All
games will be played on Friday afternoon.
At the present time the Central team is fur
ther along than any of the others. The situa
tion which confronts Coach Morse is a difficult
one He must have a team in the field next
Saturday which can play together by signal.
To do this he must use old nien and will be
unable to develop his raw material. This means
that after the university game he will have to
begin at the beginning, try out the new men
and practlcallj make a new team.
Under the hurry-up work of the last ten
days the red and blue players have made re
markable progiess. Instead of first develop
ing the strength and form of the Individual
player, then teaching team work by signal and
finally putting on the polish, Morse has been
forced to combine all three to develop a hot
house product.
Placing the Men.
Captain Diekenson, fullback, Farnham, center
Schroeder,, left guard,, Saton, left end, Green,
quarterback, Cochran, subtackle and Tobin, sub
back, form the nucleus about which the provis
ional team will be built. This gives a veteran
line, from the left thru center and three old
men in the backfleld Bresky, from North Side,
is a promising candidate for right end, and the
empty places at half, guard and tackle can
easily be filled from the host of good material
at hand Captain Dickenson is well pleased
with the outlook and in common with Coach
Morse is confident that the varsity players wiU
not duplicate their last year's score of 75 to 0
Sig Harris and a few more old time Central
stars are expected to come around next week and
drill in a few of the finer points of the game.
At North high things are moving at a more
leisurely pace. Coach Burgan is working his
candidates slowly thru the earlier stages and
will not bring them to the really hot sands be
fore the end of next week His policy is to
build up the wind and reduce the weight of the
squad by a steady grind at the elements of the

Special to The Journal.
Ames, Iowa, Sept. 16.Prospects for a win
ning football team at Ames this year are not as
flattening as would be desired by the manage
ment, yet with a bunch of nearly a hundred on
the gridiron each evening ther seems to be a
goodly amount of material to draw from. Ames
has lost a number of veterans from her ranks by
the graduation of nearly half those that made up
the team last year.
By the freshman exclusion rule which has been
adopted by the conference Ames loses some good
material, as one of the largest freshman classes
in the history of the school has enrolled this
fall. By the barring of R. E. Jensen, last
year's star quarterback, from participating in
athletics for one year by the Iowa state games
committee held in Des Moines recently, on the
grounds of professionalism, Ames loses a strong
Bupport There are several candidates for this
position now, but it has not been fully decided
as to who will get the place.
Hubbard, who has heen a Student at the col
lege since last winter, and at one time a member
of the Morningside college, seems to be the most
likely candidate At present about 100 candi
dates appear each evening and Coach Ristine
has been putting them thru some preliminary
practice such as running signals and tackling the
dummy. It seems unlikely that the team wiU
average more than 160 pounds this year, which
is the lightest for* some time, but this defect
may be counterbalanced by speed. It is known
that several teams will be blessed with heavy
weights this year which may lessen the chances
of Ames but everyone is enthusiastic, and with
the excellent physical training under the super
vision of Jack Watson good results can be ex
pected. Among the candidates from lasl year's
first and second teams that are back are Hen
niger and Mabie, tackles, Sioux Jones, Mills,
Pinkerton, Carr, Frank Mack, Hadley Smith,
Biller, McElhenny, Stauffer and Hubbard.

Special to The Journal.
Lincoln, Neb Sept 16 Nebraska university's
football prospects, which at first occasioned some
elation within the ranks of the cornhusker root
ers, have encountered fiosty weather. This con
clusion is based upon recent information received
from the South Bend training camp, which is
about to break up, preparatory to the removal
of piactice operations to the university campus
When Booth first reached the camp he felt en
couraged by the presence of two dozen or more
husky-looking athletes bidding for places
on the varsity lineup." The enthusiasm and will
ingness to practice give him hope that Nebras
ka's chances were as good as ever for a formid
able team, but only a day or two was needed to
convince him that the situation did not furnish
any grounds for congratulation.
Summed up, Booth is woefully short of veter
ansplayers who know most of the ins and
outs of football. Ex Captain Westover, Booth's
assistant, has returned to Lincoln ahead of the
squad and described the situation in the fol
"There is no Justification for the confidence
displayed by most of the Nebraska rooters. My
candid judgment is that Booth is going to have
a hard fight to develop even a creditable team.
Things may have looked good at first, but they
are different now Booth needs more of the vet
who were in the game a year ago and who
(Id be eligible If they returned. If he fails
'get them I fear that the cornhuskers are in
for a 1 vely beating when they go up against
such aggregations as Michigan, Minnesota and
"The bunch at South Bend is made up of can
didates whose willingness is the most they have
to commend them. But they lack in football
knowledge of the k^nd that does not come from
coaching half so much as fro actual experi
ence in games. As a matter of fact, Captain
Borg at center and Johnson at end are the only
veterans thta Booth has in camp. Some of the
Nebraska boosters, I notice, have been assert
ing that Wilson, Weller, Cotton and Denslow
are veterans, but there they are mistaken. They
are promising enough, but they all have quite a
bit to learn before they can expect to claim
rank with players who have preceded them in
their different positions on Nebraska's teams,
and until they can come up to the old standards
It is folly to call them veterans. Of course,
Booth is hoping for the best, but hoping, you
know, is qtute distant from fulfilment
During the past week of the preliminary train
ing there have been two desertions from the
South Bend camp, Roycroft and Weisman having
packed their grips and departed.
Urbana, HI., Sept. 16.Young, the star colored
tackle of Illinois, reported for practice, tipping

about 180 Young's arrival brings the number
of regulars on hand np to four, while Wheeler,
sub quarter, joined the sqnad.
The appearance of Pinckney, the halfback from
Pontiac, brought cheer, as he is eligible and
looks good to the coaches. Macomb, Wham and
Applegate of the second team last year were
out. Macomb is a big man, who may fill one
of the gaps in the line.
The report that Halfback Dyer would return
caused more rejoicing on the campus. Whltte

make good in thei studies by the faculty.

It is said that Weinberger has declared he
will quit football and confine his attention to
baseball, but his presence this year is needed
by the team. Davis and Johnson are also want
ed by McCornack to round out an eleven to
appioach in quality that of last year. The pair
worked well together last fall, snapping the
ball, and it is impossible to find substitutes for

a year ago, has reported, but a second injury

Milwaukee, Wis.,Sept. 16.Local fans are
looking a little scared, for the way Minneapolis
went after Milwaukee yesterday make* it look
as tho the former team is getting rather close
to second place. Until the arrival of the redsox
here the brewers did not fear them a bit, but
since their two successive victories over the local
team the race for second place In the American
association -njll be looked upon with some inter
est. Yesterday's game went to Minneapolis by
a score of 8 to 4.
For five innings the winner of the game was
still in doubt, but in the sixth Minneapolis
cinched it. Jones started the sixth and reached
the base safely. Sullivan was up next, and he
connected with one of Dougherty's jood ones and
lifted It over the fence. Cantillon had a aad
look in his eye. The millers, after Jones and
Sullivan completed the circuit were still unsatis
fled with the two runs, but Dougherty was their
meat, and they landed on him as often as they
could and made a total of five runs in that in
Thomas tended the counter for the visitors and
he served In old-time for. Excellent support
was backing him, Freeman making the only er
ror for the team. Sullivan and Coulter carried
off the honors for the day in the batting line
Sullivan, besides his home run, made two sin
gles out of five times np. Coulter managed to
get four jingles out of five times.
Minneapolis' chances for going Into second
place look good, and if Milwaukee does not take
a brace it will aU be over but the shouting
If the millers take the following two games
and make a clean sweep at Kansas City, Mil
waukee, with the ball they are playing, will
be out of the running. The score:
