Yost, who has coached the University of Michigan for six years. Yost's football vision is broad. His football judgment is superior. His football pre-eminence is generally accepted. It is thus a matter of considerable football moment when Mr. Yost breaks his previous precedence and names an all-American football team. This he has done for the North American Press Syndicate.")
