"Although it may be said that the
renunciation of membership in the as-
sociation took place Friday night, it
was not the athletes who took the step,
but the board of control, as an act of
University discipline, and the act of
disqualifying Michigan's athletes for
competing in the triangular meet is not
punishment for them, as they could not
have taken part in the regular contest
anyway. The board of control might
better have been disqualified. The
board reserves the right to say with
whom the students will be allowed to
compete. It was not a question of May-
bury and the Wisconsin team this
spring. Patience has ceased to be a
virtue in dealing with Wisconsin. We
considered that the whole amateur
standing of the northwest would have
been in danger by recognizing the de-
cisions of the graduate council.
"Moreover, we knew what we were
talking about in the Maybury case. We
have a student right here in the Univer-
sity who has raced against Maybury
for money, and we have of our own ac-
cord recognized his lack of qualifica-
tion. We have handled personally the
original contract between 'Henry Sher-
wood,' under which name Maybury
went, and one Freeman, for a race for
$1,000 a sid8, and a certified copy of a
bill of complaint filed in a suit of May-
bury's backer in this race to recover
money that was lost by Maybury's de-
feat. We did not threaten the W. I. A.
A. A. board. R .simply would not ac-
cept evidence and was more technical
than any court. The Chicago Athletic
Association brough pressure on the
board long before the decision was ren-
dered and stated that the A. A. U.
would not abide by the decision if May-
day, and Chicago at Detroit, Satur-
day. I cannot too thoroughly impress
the student supporters of athletics
with the fact that a crisis in our
financial affairs confronts us. We
cannot pay $1,400 for coaches and
$1,200 for a graduate manager next
year with an empty treasury in the
fall. The board of directors make
this one appeal-Support the associa-
tion in the last two games of the year
and thereby make up in some small
measure for the lack of support and
enthusiasm manifested so far. It
seems too bad that a magnificant base
ball team and a splendid track team
should no receive better treatment at
the hands of the student body.

Notre Dame Thursday.
Notre Dame will have plenty of sup-
porters in Thursday's game with the
'Varsity. Scores of old Notre Dame
students will be here from Detroit and
other cities near here, while a crowd
will come from the University itself.
The indications are that the game will
be hot and that the largest crowd of the
year will be out. Get your lungs and
voices in condition, and bring your tin
horns. Michigan vs. Notre Dame

At the Athletic Board meeting last

A Relay Race to be Added.
A relay race will be included in the
list of events to be contested at Detroit
Saturday in the Chicago-Michigan dual
games. The distance wii be a half
mile, and each team will consist of four
men. Stagg will enter the same team
that defeated Michigan at Philadelphia
in the one-mile championship race. In
all probability Michigan's team will be
stronger than the one that went East,
and will give Chicago a hot race.
Maloney, in the quarter and half-mile
events; Kennedy in the weights, and
Herschberger in the hurdles and poe
vault, who were unable to compete last
Saturday in the tri-angular meet at Chi-
cago, will enter surely at Detroit. They
are considered sure point winners, and
it is evident that sith these competing
the meet will be interesting.
The excursion trains from here will
leave Saturday morning at 9:00 and
11:10 o'clock. Returning, leave Detroit
at 7:30 p. m. and 12:00 midnight. The
U. of M. band will accompany the teans
and excursionists on the first train.
Several coaches on each train will be
reserved especially for ladies and es-
Championship Match Today.
The championship match in the ten-
nis tournament will be played oif to-
day at 3 p. m. on the 'Varsity courts.
Herrick and Danforth are the contest-
ants. The final in the doubles will oc-
cur at the sase time.
The annual tournament with Chicago
comes off next Friday afternoon. Chi-
cago will send down a strong team, but
will be met by a Michigan, aggregation
fully as strong. An excellent article
of tennis may be expected. The tour-
nament will take place on the 'Varsity
courts. Admittance 25 cents, ladies
