That the Wolverine leader has an excellent oC the Michigan lean: is attested by the fact that he gives fix of his own men positions on the team, while only two other elevens are represented. Minnesota getting four places and Illinois one. Chicago. Wisconsin, Marquette Northwestern and Nebraska are not considered worthy of representation on the showing that any one of their individuals made this season. have eliminated Notre Dame from consideration altogether, though that team has some fine piayers." said Yost. -My reasons for no doing arn that the Longman team has so nionv men who are ineligible under college rules as accepted by the leading teams, that it Is not nroperjv to be classed with the others who observe stricter regulations. Are Sot Eligible. "To mv certain Stnowledge, no-Jan, Miller, Dimmick and Philbrook would be ineligible to compete at Any of the conference colleges or at the 1'iiiversity Michigan, and there may be others. One of the men I have mentioned has played nine years of college football. "Aside from questions of eligibility, the Notre Dame men are a great lot. Dolati is easily the best guard have seen this season, and I doubt it he has a superior, or even an equal in the country. Vaughn, Miller and Dimmick also would be worthv of places on the All-Western. Dolan, Dimmick and Vaughn certainly would have to bp selected. "It mav seem strange that have picked so mauv Michigan men, but i think that I have good reasons for mv choices. If I had the privilege of selecting from among all the teams in the west, there isn't one of the six Wolverines whom I would be willliiR- to trade.

MARATHON RACE ATTRACTS STARS Hart, Secord and Wilcox Should Have Great Battle in Tonight's VETERAN'S HE ADW0EK AND PLUCK WILI BE FACTOR Younger Pair Will Have to Travel Fast to Take the Champion's Measure. All is in readiness for the 15-mile marathon race lo be held in the Belle. Isle roller rink tonight. Sheriff Gaston will tire the gun that sends the runners away on their long, grind. Many exoect to see a new Michigan record established. Secord, earlier in the week, was picked as an easy winner, with odds at that time freely offered that' he would easily beat Hart's record. Many figured the champion "all in" after his refeal by TVilcoK during last summer, in a 10-mile race, but he put one over on the wise ones last Thursday evening In a five-milo race, when he handed Wilcox a good beating. While the time, was not fast, being 110 minutes. Hart showed good judgment in timing Ills race, and finished in good shape. Without' doubl. this will be a race between ITart, Wilcox and Secord. Hart being a veteran at tho game, and while his speed has lessened during the past season, lie outclassed either of his rivals In head work and ability Ui judge other "hen in the race. Both Secord and the Canadian should show greater endurance and probably more speed than the gritty little Irish runner. So it Is simply a question of youth, strength and endurance against pluck, knowledge of Ihe game and Hart's determination to make his last race a. winning one. Hart's record for 15 miles is 1 hour, 30 minutes and 4 seconds.

Sporting Writers AH At Sea on Identity of Touchdown Maker Ono of the strongest boosts for (he project to number football players that has come this season was a result of the game between Michigan and Minnesota last Saturday. Not a newspaper in the country had the names ot the men scoring Michigan's right, due to tho impossibility of telling who carried the ball on many of tho plays, particularly plunges through the line. It was Capt. AllerdiceirWho car- lirst score, but even Coach Yost did IN BL i not Know It until the next mornint H(, WRS by The Kree Prea: nnrnxsnnnripnt immediately aftci correspondent immediately after the game who had made the scores and replied that Magidsohn had carried the ball across the line both times. Several Michigan players said the same The following morning Yost and Trainer Fltzpatrick had an argument regarding tho first ot the touchdowns and they were unable to settle the question until AHerdice himself was asked about it. Magidsohn made the second, as was reported at tho time, though some of the papers gave Cant. Al-lerdice credit for this one and gave Magldsohn's name as the author of No 1. Others said that the Michigan captain scored both. If Coach Yost, who in as close to the play as anyone could get without actually taking pan -in a game, can't tell which of his own men carries the ball, it is asking a good deal of the sporting writers, some 500 feet away, to get things straight. "With the men numbered a good part of the difficulty would be obviated. TYRDS COBB A VISITOR HERE From Cleveland After Being Fined $100 for the Assault Charge. Cleveland. November 22.

An incident which happened during service on the substitute squad at Whitmore lako shows Magid-sohn's conscientious nature. He was working nt left halfback, the position at which he made his wonderful record this season. Coach Yost seldom cast his eye in the direction of the second 'string bunch. He was too much occupied with his first eleven. This fact led to considerable fooling and loafing, especially on the part of tho quarterback directing the substitute squad, who was diminishing the speed of the practice as much as possible by intentional fumbling. "You either run the squad right or quit." said Magidsohn, stepping up to the ofTender. "I want to learn these signals and formations and get some good out of the work." he continued.

This is the same spirit he has shown all season the spirit of determination to fit himseir for a high-class halfback job. The men who worked with him respected him for tbis snlrlt. Magidsohn at last found what he sought speed and endurance, which two qualities enabled him to jump Into the lime- him a chance as a reeufar. These qualities were what er.aoieq mm to gain more ground against Pennsylvania than the rest of the Michigan team combined; and to dash th-ousrh the Gopher eleven time after "time for Ions runs without tiring.
