'it least one of Michigan's promnitent
supporters. Brigadier General J. If.
Smitb, retired, now licing on hilli street
in itis city, dlisagrres with tltr critics.
"Thte stplendid interest is atlletic's,"
;aiti General Smith, "is onte of tbe fittest
itingo absost tbis university. I hase
been iere, nose, a little over a yeair antd
itt that time I tact been very santch
interested i all brancbes of athletics.
I believe thorotughly ini ibis educeation
if hotly and mind tosgether. It ntakes
btter men. Neiw, ini the arity the first
drill we give newsly enlistedtl ttet is thr
