Apiece Selection Satisfactory
f'tTho following is. the Uno-up for an
all-class team which has boon picked
fay Coach Poster and "Tow" Cotton.
The selection was; made wholly upon
the appearance of the men In the
fcames played and. no man's possibili
ties were taken into conslderatldn.
.Both Foster and Cotton were present
at fcll the games pjayod in tho capacity

a 'selection is to some extent a matter
of opinion only, it is not fair to say
positively that these .men arotho best

Right Half Howard .'Senior
Quarterback BelL Sophpmpre:
Fullback Beltzer Freshman
The Freshman team heads tho list
with five men; tho Seniors are next
With four, and the Juniors and Sopho
mores follow with one man apiece.
An unusually strong back field Is
one feature of the" toam as selected.
Boll, the little Sophomore quarterback,
is quiet and heady, running his team
in a consistent manner and always
keeping a cool head. Arnold, the
Freshman halfback and one" of their
favorites, showod by his work in both
games that ho know tho game from
the ground up. With Beltzer, the
Freshman fullback to buck tho line
and Howard, the Senior fullback, to
boot the ball when it was in danger, It
Js evident that a strong combination
would be effected.
Ferris, .the two hundred and forty
pound center, is alone in his class,
and will make good 'Varsity material
nex season, and with Jenkins on ono
side and Frazier on tho' other it would
:tako d pretty hard buck to jar the
center of the line.
, Hart, tho Freshman, who Is placed
at left tackle, has showed up" promts--Ingly
during the past -season In his
brilliant work with the scrubs, and will
"stand a good show for 'Varsity Honors
next fall. , "Chick" McLaughlin, the
other tackle, has played on his class
team for three years, and his work is
too well, known to need further com
ment. " With Butler and Bentloy at the ends
it "would -be hard to. pick a -more
speedy, surer set of runners and
tackles. They play a brilliant game,
making 'good, gains consistently and
bringing down their men without fail.

ber of tho Prom committee 'betwoon

pocted that tho safe of tickets this
