cry of the Mlohlgnn football player.
Since the Benson started Coach Yost

reports of the Quaker cloven. Last
year Michigan held Pennsylvania to a

even better "Hurry Up" Yost is tench
ing his men nil kinds of tricks In order
that the lied ntid Uluc collegians may
be conquered when they battle on
Michigan's gridiron on Nov. 18.
Yost docs not bury the fact thnt ho
has ono of the best teams in years.
He already has gene on record as
saying that ho expects this year's
team to make an great a record as his
great 1004 eleven did. The Wolverenes
look upon the Qunker gnmo ns the
hardest of the season and the best ono
from which to judge Michigan's real
gridiron strength. There Is no method
of obtaining the Wolverenes' strength
since Yost's squad docs not play with
I the conference teams. Both Chicago
and Michigan pluy Cornell , and these
games will go a long wny toward
showing how strong the Mnlzo and
IIIuo team Is compared to other west
ern elevens.
The personnel of Michigan's present
eleven Is much the snmo ns lust year's.
Not only Is Yost lucky to have prac
tically an Intact team , but ho has been
fortunate In locating suitable substi
tutes for emergencies.
