H A K.MORIKS of the experiences of HR ;,ist years when Ann Arbor I VI i,as been turned loose upon rne I" ivtroit theaters made nearly even- "theater man" in Detroit anx-Sous'yest.-rUay. Rumors lloaated about that the students were solus to such and sue), a H..usc to -break up the show.- ami quietly and unostentatiously the managements prepared for anv possible unpleasantness. Be It said to th- credit of the V.. of M. students, however, in no caso were these precautions needed. When the curtain rose at. the Empire theater, the crowd was small and scattering, and the exuberance ol those L". of M. students who had wandered ill was manifest only in vociferous cheering on the slightes; provocation. The performers, thinking that their efforts were appreciated, looked pleas' :, but as the main body of the troop:' ., which the students were but the Vi ..:t:ard. began to arrive, every one reaped that "sumelhlng was doing." Soon the parquet and balcony were crowded with wearers of the yellow and blue, out for fun and mischief. "Phelum Bumps." one of a party of Americans supposed to be traveling in' Japan, was introduced, and was immediately christened -Cyrano." As the performance grew In Interest the spectators became more animated, arid the personal appearance of various members of the company came in tor audible comments. There were invitations tb "come down," and one ambitious devotee of Uaechus waved a beer mug alluringly unuer the eyes of the players. Culled Actor Mr. Wu. About that time a box party of eight or ten seekers after knowledge Trora the Ann Arbor fount became much In ovidence. A "heathen Chinee" walked upon the staurt and was accorded a vociferous welcome. "Wu, Wu! Minister Wu! Speech! Speech!" yelled the box party, and at the signal nearly every one in the house took up the yell: "Wu! Wu! Speech! Speech!" "Wu" looked for a moment as though he wore going to run back to China, but braced up sufficiently to go on. with his part. From that time, the performers had a hard lot. The students developed an encoring rhanta; -accompanying their applause with cat calls and yells; If a thins pleased them or displeased them, it made no difference the applause went right on and became a continuous performance, while the actors, to all appearances, carried on a pantomime. Once or twice a faint hearted one nave nip and fled the stag.', but there was always someone else to lake the plai.-' Paring an unwonted lull a "rooter' in the box party discovered an acquaintance in the body of the house, who was preparing to enjoy a quiet smoke. "Joe," ho shouted, waving his rane sadlv. "Joe," In a tone of deep despair, and heartfelt reproof, "Why, O wli. do you smoke cigarettes!" On Staiee After Hats. After that no one heard anything of the show. A hat whirle'd up on the .stage and a student crawled after It and for a moment mingled with the company. Cannon balls from the battle scene which rolled into the par-uuct. were used to pepper the unfortunate hero of the battle, hut the company worked on in grim desperation, cutting out a part here and there and winding up about !t:4n "They raised rough house, and we cm thi play." remarked an employe of the theater tersely, and seemed relieved thut things hail passed off without fatalities.

Spread throuchout lifferent portions of the house were perhaps fifteen to eii;hteen officers, but the audience was a quiet one. probably as much out of respect to James ON'elll's flue acting as anything else.

TROTTING. Breeder Have All Testimony In. Lexington. Ky., November '2 The investigating committee appointed by Kentucky breeders and trainers at a mass meeting last Monday completed its labors to-day and will report its findings at another meeting Monday noon. Trainer Dan O'Brien, the last witness examined, told the committee he was responsible for the moving of the three-eighths pole at the Kentucky association track, by which the distance to the wire was for one day shortened 41 feet 3 inches. O'Brien was seen after the committee adjourned and udmlts that he had assumed the responsibility, but declined to discuss the case. He was trainer of, ani. with Messrs. Jack and Phil Chinn, held an option on the Wagner Marguerite-Jane colt which, on trial over the short three-eighths, showed what was considered the remarkable speed of 361i seconds. C. F. Hill, who had come here from New York as representative of Clarence Mackay to see the. colt work, returned with an option said to be J8.000 Mackay wanted h fast youngster and this one had been recommended. The option held by O'Brien and the Messrs. Chlnn, secured from the owners of the colt, was $2,500 The Messrs. Chlnn testified that on the day following the colt's trial they learned that the distance was short and that the elder Chinn had wtred Mr. Mackay. so informing him. Answering telegrams were shown to the committee. Dr. Bryan, a ' veterinary, was the only other witness examined. What the recommendations of the committee will be to the breeders will not be known until the meeting Monday. Creena at Des Moines. Dee Moines, la., November 2. Cres-ceue, holder of the world's trotting Teoord. arrived here to-day. and on Tuesday or Wednesday, according to the weather, will attempt to reduce his record (3:09 1-4) on the kite-shaped track.

In fact it was so had that the braves did not have a suspicion that it was even a poor Imitation. But the students were satisfied. The ahorlslnes tossed the ball around for fifteen minutes, and then they got down to business. Minister Wu Saw the Cnuie. Minister Wu and his secretary arrived shortly after the game began, and were greeted with much applause as they made their way to a box with Gen. and Mrs. Alger.

Once the Indians held the Michigan 'ads for downs and a groan went up. An incorrigible yell-master sprang to his feet, and they began to yell: "Raw! Raw! Raw!" "I think that's Just horrid to taunt ifitiiu. nmu n iiv.j '.'- lots f'AFrench -twit no football. "What THIS DETROIT- FREE PRESS: Pokc 1 Part 1. If they did play badly for a minute, those boys needn't have called the attention of the general public to It! A co-ed looked at her compassionately, but said nothing. The team did not seem to lake it to heart either, for the next minute Snow made a twenty-yard run and the fanatic section had another spasm. There were only hand clappings for the good work of the Indians, though one westerner high up in the grandstand could not resist the temptation to let out an Apache yell now and then. "Yip. yip. yip! Ki. yi! ki. yi!" It was the genuine article and the Indians down on the field heard it. Am Inuse for the Indians. One of the braves had a curious way of giving warning of an offside play. Bverytime he saw a U. of M. man off-side he let out a: bird note. Instantly every Indtan stood still and more than once the referee was forced to give ten yards to the Indians because of their quickness in obeying the signal The plucky stand of the Carlisle braves In the last half won them many friends. Many "traitors" openly expressed the hope the Indians would score. Time after time as the red men worked their trick play those in the stand burst into applause. There was little or no singing after the game started. The Indians were so fast and tackled so surely that even with the advantage of a couple of touchdowns the students did not feel at all sure, so the work of Prof. Stanley and the 2.000 students who had practiced all Friday afternoon in University hall, went for little. After all was over there was no Carrying of heroes off the field. The crowd decided they must hear from Minister Wu and they gathered about the box where he had witnessed the game with Gen. and Mrs. Alger and his party and howled for a speech. Minister Wu's "Impressions." A Free Press representative had reached the side of Minister Wu at the close of the game and was asking him for his impressions. "Interesting, very interesting! Are all games like these? Are the other football contests in the country Just the same as this to-day? WTere the men badly hurt?" Just then the enthusiastic crowd approached the grand stand and began to yell "speech" "speech!" "Wu! Wu! We want Wu! Who else will do but Wu! Wu! Wu! Rah! Rah! Rah! -o-o-o! Who's all right W-o-o!" Meanwhile the distinguished diplomat was quickly turning his head from General Alger, who stood at his right, to the crowd of yelling student humanity in front. "They want a speech." said the general. "A speech? From me? I never saw a game before. Do they always ask for speeches? Why do they yell so? "Vou must say something," said Mr. Alger. "All right." and bowing low to the sea o' beaming faces on the field in front of him. Minister Wu spoke as follows: Minister Wu's Connrntnlntlons. "I am very glad to be here to-day to witness your football game. This is the first time I ever saw a gridiron game, as you call it, although I have now been In your country several years. Not only am I delighted to see this feature of American college life, but you have my congratulations that the victory rests where it Joes. "Go on with your victories! Victories in football victories In your other life that is soon to come. If vou win now why should you not win later? Again. I congratulate you., and thank you for the spectacle I have witnessed, the like of which I have never seen before." As Mr. W'u turned to sit down, hft saw The Free Press representative, who had taken every word he had spoken. "A h! These newspaper men! They are everywhere! We can say nothing they do not ffet!" Mr. Wu's speech was received with vociferous applause, and the cry was then taken up for Gen. Alrer. He responded briefly as follows: "I have considerable sympathy for the Indians who have struggled so honorably, but T knew you wanted to win. so I brought along the Chinese minister as a mascot." 'Yells of "What's the matter with Wu?") "I Tell you. nothing's the matter with Wu. He has enjoyed the game as I know I have. I sincerely congratulate you." Seeretnry ChniirH Comment. Mun Yew Chung, secretary" interpreter of the Chinese legation, who accompanied Minister Wu to Ann Arbor, and who saw the game with Mr. Wu's party, is an old Yale man. having entered with the class of 18S3. When'asked his opinion of the game, he said to a Free Press representative: "This is the first game I have seen in years. There are no games In Washington, and I have en.ioyed this one very much. I miss the flying wedge formations, but the kicking features more than make up for it and to my mind render the spectacle more Interesting. 1 expected a larger score and thought Michigan should have done more in the second half, but I am glad the result was as favorable as it is." MICHIGAN NOT IN IT WITH HARVARD, SAYS WARNER Coach "Pop" Warner, of the Carlisle team, wa.s a bear so far as the Michigan football stock was concerned. "We are very well satisfied with the game," said he. "Michigan tried to equal the score Harvard made against us and did not succeed although our eleven was made up largely of substitutes. If we had had as strong a team as lined up against Cornell two weeks ago we should have played Michigan to a standstill. How does Michigan compare with Harvard? Why. she Is not In the same class so far as the game to-day is concerned. Harvard would have no trouble in defeating her and I do not think Harvard is as strong as either Yale or Princeton. So far as I can judge Michigan would stand no show with those big teams down east. Michigan has a good team and they made their gains in the first half by the rapidity with which they got off their plays. Still we had been led by reports to expect a stronger team. "Many of our players were new in their positions and they did not get into the game until the second half. The game served as a means ot trying out several new men for the game with Pennsylvania, which we play on the 10th of this month." Inasmuch as Warner was quoted as saying that his team would win, the fact that they did not may have made him a little provoked and given a flavor to the above remarks, but he was certainly not at all enthusiastic over the Michigan eleven. ANALYSIS OF THE GAME FROM THE GRAND STAND The result was acceptable somewhat disappointing on the whole, rather a surprise. There can be no doubt that the many thousand admirers of the maize and biue pigskin chasers expected a bigger score. Why! Harvard beat the Indians 29 to 0, and the visions of what would happen if "Hurry Up" Yost's aggregation could only make an invasion of eastern territory this year have been among the most pleasant contemplations Michigan men have had m years. It is true it was a shut out. There is still the possibility that Capt. White's men may end the year with a complete list of whitewash scores for their opponents, but why couldn t this one have been jusl a little bigger? It was only a matter of the size of the score, every one knew that would be the case, yet why. in the, second half, did Michigan slacken her pace and leave the Impression after all that the Indians, weakened by the loss of several of their best men. put up a magnificent battle and fought throughout most pluckily? "Devils on TnckllnK."' "We outweighed them, but they were devils on tackling," is the way Captain White sized up the game, and that is a fair summary of the fifty-five-minute struggle on the improvised Bennett park gridiron, perhaps, with the addition, thaj; in quickness of formation, rapidity of execution and effectiveness of line bucking Michigan was the superior. But where were those long end runs. Those clever criss-cross passes of the Buffalo game? Those thrilling breaks through the line and splendid gains before tackling, that have been seen in everv Michigan game thus far. Perhaps It was the warm afternoon: perhaps it was slight embarrassment before the big crowd of spectators; perhaps it was in a way an underestimation of the red men from Carlisle; but more than all it was the splendid tackling of the Indians. Tn this even Michigan partisans accorded them superiority and due to this the score was as small as it was. Red Men on the Defensive. The red men were on the defensive throughout. Not once was the Michigan goal in the least danger. It was seen within the first few minutes of play that the superior weight of Michigan must tell in the end and, with perhaps five exceptions, all attempts to buck the Michigan line were unavailing, and simple end runs netted small or no gains at all. The Carlisle fullback, however, never failed In his defensive punt, and many times on the second down that play was for them the only one in the least bit feasible to make. Wlnc-shift Piny. One play of the Indians, however, had the men from Michigan almost frantic, and on several repetitions resulted in neat gains around both ends. It was a beautiful formation to watch from the grandstand, the men assuming their positions like clockwork and running with double-line Interference. Too frequent use of the play, however, gave the Wolverines the secret, and repeated trials with this as with the. rest of the plays were most discouraging. Although the halves were to be but twenty-seven minutes each, the actual time from the first call of the umpire's whistle to tl. announcement "time's up" was something over two hours, the difference besides the ten-minute intermission being due to delays through injuries to players. Many Men Injured. Probably no game was ever seen In Detroit with more time out for sprains, bruises and injuries than the one yesterday afternoon. For the first time this season a Michigan player was taken out of the game. In the first half Redden was laid out after a fierce scrimmage and although he .insisted on resuming his place in the line, Fitzpatrlck. wishing tn be on the safe side, ordered him to the side lines. He was soon In his old time spirits, however, and will not be out of the game even for to-mcrrow's practice. Hut there are few Michigan men who to-day will not wear some black and blue marks as a result of the terrific tackling they had to withstand. Brndley's Shoulder Dislocnted;- The Indians were not quite so fortunate. Johnson Bradley, the big left end. was caught in several pile-ups and finally, while trying to block Snow was thrown to the ground and siiffered a severe dislocation of the shoulder. Dr. D. M. Cowle, of Ann Arbor, attended him and says he must remain in Detroit for two days and can not possibly enter the game again this season. Yarlock was also sprained badly and was taken off the field but. no serious results are expected. Schou-chuk, the plucky Carlisle center from the Aleutian Islands, also left the line but it was because Coach Warner believed him to be too much fagged out to keep up. Both Sides Pnmhled. Fumbling grew to he a tiresome feature throughout the game. The Indians contributed their share, though only once did it cost, them the ba.l!. while nearly every time the ball rolled from a Michigan player's hands a clean loss was apparent. Especially in the failure to handle the Indian's punts was the weakness of Michigan lamentable. In. tli" punts themselves, Mlchig..n was almost ouidone for altuough Swee-ley sent the pigskin farther down the gridiron, it was more poorly placed and often netted comparatively small gain. Williams, for Carlisle, punted higher and often an Indian knelt at the lcet of the man from Michigan, ready to tackle, before the ball had dropped into his hands. This feature of the game, repeated several times, was almost laughahle and never failed to win applause from the crowd of spectators. Off Side PInys Frequent. Michigan was penalized at the outset and once besides, in the second half, lost ten yards for off side plays. It was thought by many that the Indians were treated to a liberal shower of penalties in the first few minutes of the game, partly owing to Warner ccaching them from the side lines, and it was due largely to this, added to their probable expectation of defeat that they made as noor a showing at the beginning as they did. They formed rather slowly and did not seem to out zest into their resistance to Michigan aggression. E. of M. Started In Font, Michigan, however, was at ner best In the first fifteen minutes of the game and visions of a handsome score HOW MICHIGAN SCORED HER !: WAS about five minutes after 2 o'clock when Referee Hinkey's whistle blew, and Capt. White, who had won the toss when the coin was flipped, chose the ball. Michigan was defending the west goal, while the Indians were lined up in defense of the east goal. There was practically no wind to give either side any advantage and a yell went up when Snow put his boot Into the pigskin to start the game. Michigan was offside and was put back ;o the 50-yard line, where Snow tried .gain. This time the kick was a short one and went out of bounds. The suspense was over with the next time, for the ball .went saillne to Johnson', on SUNDAY, NOVE'M'BEK 6, loomed up as Wilson was shoved over for the first touchdown. Several of the fair ones in the grand stand, as they saw the rugged features of the doughty "Tug" turned towards them, with the gleam of satisfaction of having made the first five points, exclaimed, "Why, that's an Indian!" but the cheering multitude soon corrected whatever forebodings in that direction thev entertc.ined. The first deep-breathed "Oh'i:'" were heard when Shorts missed the goal. But the game was young and victory seemed written everywhere. Two Touchdowns. It was only a I'tw minutes more, seven or eight perhaps, before Heston, the far-famed half-back, was over the red men s goal Hi:e again. But it was not. after all, by an end run such as he has made in many former games, but only a? a result, of tugging and pushing and pounding that the position of the pigskin was a.ble to mean five more poinis. Then. too. the Indians were plainly bracing up. They were beginning their tierce tackles and the gains through their line were not so certain. Shorts had a chance to make his first bow as he sent the ball between the posts on an easy kick, making the score 11-0. . Carlisle's Rnd Mistake. Just how the next live points were made was somewhat of an enigma to most , of the spectators In about six minutes oi piaj , " ' t denly blown and the ball given to. Shorts on Carlisle's tniriy-j "'"", Several scrimmages had precedea and some neat gains had been made by Michigan, but most people thougnt the ball was still in the red men s possession. The explanation followed. Carlisle had called the signal for a free kick, yet one of their men had blocked a Wolverine. Shorts again was successful with his leg, and the score was made IS 0. Another kl -k off, several punts, some line plays and the whistle blew to call the end of the first half. The Second Half. It was with a sigh of expectation in the breast of every Michigan rooter that the ball was put in play again at the opening of the second halt. The Indians must be tired. Michigan will surelv stamper down the gridiron at a lively clip now. But Carlisle had seen the struggle was far from hope ess and one, two, three and Michigan lost on downs. Carlisle's Only Chance. Now came, too, the splendid wing-shift play of the Indians around the ends. For once it seemed that there was a' possibility of Carlisle's scoring, but somehow at critical points the redskins lost the ball. Michigan was not much better, however, and at the end of about every three minutes of play the pigskin found itself resting somewhere near the center of the field. Punts in the air, punts down the field, huckir.g hammer and tongs, attempts at running around end, bumping and terrific tackling, but still little advantage for either. It was at this stage of the game that whatever credit the Indians won COACH YOST SATISFIED WITH THE RESULT "Well," said Yost, the genial poach of the U. of M. team, "I hod rather win by a score of 22 to 0 than by the score of 50 to G. Two things contributed largely to the failure ot Michigan to make a larger score. One was the fumonng j in the first half which was disastrous and the other was the loss of Redden. He Is the bost end in the country and one of the best, men on the team. We had no regular substitute to take his place and had" To shift Hernsteln over to the left end, where he had never played before. This disarranged the plays and weakened us greatly on offensive work. " do not think the tearh was troubled with the swelled head and we have no kick coming on the showing made either. Outside of a few gains by the wine shift play, which worked successfully until Michigan solved it. Carlisle could do nothing with the Michigan defense and if you noticed it their backs never made any gains when they caught Sweeley's punts. Our men were right down on them. The Indians are certainly a great lot of tacklers. When we tried to go around tholr right end. Hare would use Sweefey tor a pivot, swing right around him. and get the runner every time." Sweeley seemed unable to block him off." In regard to Redden who was taken out. of the gat"o Keene Fitzpatrlck stated after the p,rae that the Injury to his rib ws not so serious as he had anticipated and that the n!:;yer was all right and would be ready for the next game. "The Indians are rreat taek-lers," said the trainer. "They certainly nlayed a great game in the second half and In no respect did it show v better than in the way they broke up Michigan's interference, in some cases almost before it started." was gained. Their defense was admirable, and with any strength in offense their score, might have been otherwise than a cipher. Shorts Pushed Over for 22. At last, however, Michigan took on :enewed sprightliness, and within six minutes of the end of the play Shorts was pushed over for the last touchdown, which he augmented by one point in kicking goal. The interest In the game here waned considerably and many of the spectff tors turned to the nalf-tone pictures of the team which had been distributed by The Free Press, to see the features of those whose padded forms they had witnessed from a distance The rooters were tired; the chances for another touchdown were hopeless; Minister Wu stopped asking questions: Gen. Alger looked up In the sky, and with two or three more revolutions of the minute hand on the timekeeper's watch the Carlisle-Michigan game was done. GREAT VICTORY Carlisle's 10-yard line, and the game was on. Then for about fifteen minutes the spectators were treated to a splendid exhibition of offensive football, quite the best in the game as a matter of fact. Although Michigan was penalized for using hands, the players went after the Indians like a Whirlwind, and for a while it looked as if a large score would be rolled "P In short order. Johnson brought back the ball to Carlisle's 30-yard line and Sheldot punted to Michigan's 50-yard line.

The ball was now on the Carlisle 30-yard line and Michigan was not to be denied. The first man to sei. m distance was Shorts, who bucked for 5 yards: Sweeley went, outside of tackle, Michigan's best ground-gaining play, for 10 yards, and Heston brought the crowd to its feet when he went around the opposite end for 15 yards and a touchdown. Weeks kicked out nicely to Sweeley and Shorts liyed up to his reputation as a goal kicker by sending the ball over cleanly. Score, Michigan, 11; Carlisle, 0. The Indians were now beginning to feel the force of Michigan's offense and Sheldon was taken out of the game in bad shape, Johnson going to quarter and Beaver to left half, while Bradley went in at left end. The pace which Michigan had cut out was a lively one and their opponents seemed to be staggered for the time being. Carlisle kicked off to Weeks, who made a short gain.

Bradlev tackled Redden for a loss of two yards and it. was the third down with -1 yards to gain when the scrimmage was over wfth and Sweeley found it necessary to punt. --vi-ii Redden had been hurt when tackled and although he tried to play once more he moved with diffic julty and Trainer Fitzpatrlck took h lm out of the game, with what Promised to be a wrenched rib. He was the first Michilan man' this season to have to leave a game on account of injuries, but many of them showed atJ ehote after the game the results of the In-dlans' fierce tackling. Redden's Loss Was Felt. Redden's absence from the game was severely felt as the ends had to be shifted, and Knight, who took his place, was not nearly so fast a player. The pteskdn was now In possession of Carlisle on her 15-yard line. Johnson, the star of the Carlisle team so far as gaining ground was concerned, was given the ball, and working out of a scrimmage was In a fair way to get well down the field when he was nailed by Snow with only a two-yard san:. , j tfce nniv Incident just jieru uiivuu wi whlch marred the came.

Arbor again" began to work the ball back. It was a more laborious task this time and the gains were not so large. Little by little Michigan's backs and tackles lessened the distance that separated them from another touchdown, only to lose the ball on Carlisle's 25-vard line for using their hands. This was disheartening to Michigan, while the Indians were correspondingly elated and Warner in his excitement continually ran out on the gridiron, shouting to his men. White's Costly Fumble. Immediately Carlisle was presented with ten yards for an offside play by Michigan, but a moment later and the ball went over to the 'varsity on a fumble by Carlisle. From Carlisle's 35-yard line the Michigan team carried the ball, with the aid of a 15-yard run by Heston to the Indians' 10-yard line, where a fumble by White again sent Michigan's hopes of a score glimmering. . w , Then It was that Warner's dusky warriors donned their war paint and decided that if Michigan was going to fumble right along there, was no danger of their crossing the Carlisle goal line again. It was the turning point in the game and from that time on the Indians not only played better ball but the character of the game put up by Michigan seemed to deteriorate. Except for a few plays at the beginning of the second half, Michigan did not put up so fast a game and the backs failed to take advantage of all the openings that were made In the line. That Winpr-SMft Play. Before time was called for the half the Indians had made a net gain of 23 yards by the use of a play which was sgmewhat of a surprise to their opponents. The-half of the line on the opposite end of the line to that about which the play was to be directed was shifted over In a body and the whole weight of the team was thus hurled at the Michigan line. This gave thi lighter Indian team the advantage o! ; onsiderable more weight, and it wa-some time before Michigan was abh to solve the play successfully enougi ;o break It up. Beaver was the firs Player to make a gain in this manne and he at once appeared as the sec ond ground-gainer by starting off with, a 15-yard run. Again and again the play was used and the ball was in the possession of Carlisle on her ?8-yard line wnen me can ot n u first half. At no time had the Michigan goal been threatened, and everybody said, "Just watt until the second half." : The Second Half. No changes were made in either team for the second half, and Michigan started in to -"jat the Indians " ,. rt'itit i.i.ire tn Mtr.hlean s 3-yard line, and Sweeley returned the ball to the center, or me nam. It was fumblod by the Indians, and Gregory was the right, man in the right place, and fell on the ball. This was making a good beginning, and the good work was continued by the tackles and backs, who by gains of from three to eight yards had worked the pigskin to the Carlisle 35-yardJIne. There however. It went over for holding and Carlisle again began to use her wing-shift play with success. Both teams were working fiercely now, and there was scarcely a scrimmage when some player was not laid out (or minute or two. In this respect the Indians had the worst of it, but Michigan had to call on the referee for time more than she has had to U. 0FM. qHOUID HAVE DSNE BETTER, SAYS WHITE Captain White, of the Michigan eleven, had the following comment to make on the game: "We should have had at least two touchdowns more, and I do not think Michigan played her game. For about twelve minutes the men got together in the way they have been doing, but this did not last throughout the game. Carlisle Is the strongest team we have met this year, and In the second half put up a magnificent ganie on the defensive. We started In to walk right over them, and, apparently, had them going in good shape, but after our two fumbles when we had the ball well down toward their goal they seemed to take heart, and their brace was apparent until the end of the game. We should have had a larger score, but at any rate1 we did better than In ,the game against Iowa in Detroit last year." Coach A. A. Stagg, of the University of Chicago, came over to witness the game and get a line on Michigan's strength in preparation for the Michigan - Chicago game two weeks from Saturday at Ann Arbor. He showed up in the Russell House last evening, was recognized by the crowd in the lobby, but would not respond to repeated calls for a speech. Stagg felt better than when he left Chicago, for he says that Michigan Is not nearly so strong as he had expected to find her, and he thinks Chicago has a good chance to win out. Although his conversation was along general lines It was easy to see that he felt a great relief over the kind of a game the Michigan team put up yesterday. do in any previous game this year. Beaver made two more gains on the wing-shift play, and then the Michigan line discovered a way to stop the trick, and on the last trial the plucky left half was thrown back for a loss. Michigan got the ball on downs. Hes,-ton tried a crossbuck for three yards and the ball was on Carlisle's 30-yard line when by clever tackling- and smashing Interference Carlisle succeeded in holding Michigan for downs for the first time. Indians Playlna Great Ball. The Indians were now playing great ball, but they could not keep up the pace, and after Beaver and Yarlock had, by the hardest kind of playing, netted a gain of twenty-three yards, Williams had to be called on once more. He punted out of bounds at Michigan's thirty-yard line. The seo-ond half was well along and still Michigan was far from the desired goal and the Indians playing better than ever. Chesaw had been substituted for Shouchuk at center, and all the players were beginning to feel the effects of the severe work and the warm weather. Sweeley at once punted; but the effort was a failure and there was no gain. The Indians were now on Michigan's thirty-yard line, within striking distance of the goal, and the ball was In tbelr possession. Then Michigan showed her colors and Carlisle oould not get an Inch In the effort to make the required distance Johnson was given tne ball on a double pass, but he could not gain and the ball went to -Michigan on downs on her thirty-foot line. This wes some of tbe best work of the game. Tbe Last Tonehdown. Sweeley punted nicely to Carlisle's 40-yard line and Johnson dodged back 10 yards before succumbing. Three attempts at the line netted only two yards for the Indians and they were forced to punt. Sweeley caught the 'ball and whirled through a half dozen tacklers ror a 15-yard gain. The ball was Michigan's on her 4S-yard line but she could not make the required distance and Sweeley punted to Carlisle's 40-yaxd line. Then the Indians were in their turn held for downs and the ball went back to 'varsity on their opponents' 40-yard line. Carlisle put up a vigorous defense and it began to iook as though the half would end with no scoring. An offside play gave Michigan 10 yards and from the Indians 25-yard line Sweeley, Heston and Shorts carried the ball down the field for the last touchdown. Sweeley contributed the longest gain, one of 15 yards, and Tackle Shorts, the reliable, took the ball over. A moment later Weeks punted out to Bernstein and Shorts added another point to the score by a clean goal. Score, Michigan, 22; Carlisle, 0. Indians Broke Interference. Yarlock gave way to (jaugh at right half and on the Une-up Williams kicked to Snow on Michigan's 6-yard line. He brought the ball back twenty-five yards and Sweeley at onco punted to Carlisle's 45-yard line. Beaver got two yards, but the pigskin was fumbled by a redskin and Michigan grabbed It. Into the Indian line went Sweeley, Shorts and Heston for short gains, but thev seemed unable to get around the tackles as they had In the first half Time and again the Indians would break up the Interference before it Was falrlv stnrteH ne ot , ...... butui nu-yara line they once more accomplished the v,i ,u, ig jnuniBan ror downs.

Both sides suffered severely for--offside- playing and holding, but two oi the ten-yard penalties Inflicted on the Indians were the result of a little scheme which Quarterback Weeks and Guard McGugin worked successfully. The team would set all ready to play, and the big guard would let out a y el, as though the whole team was aboui to start on a mad. career down the field. No one on the Michigan team would move, but the Indians would Jump into the Michigtin line and TCTeelrl, ai,IiI Iw .n I 11.. iL, cvno -wwij ; imuic , imj ' " lilt ll-yuuracr, mvani.

All sea. son we have counted on the Pennsyl vania game as our biggest event. 1 do not think that Michigan has so good a team this year as In year? gone by. I never saw Michigan pisy before, but had heard much about hr men." Many of the Ann Arbor crowd left for home after the game, but oth.r-stayed in Detroit to celebrate the victory.
