In charge of today's issue,
JUNIUS B. WOOD.-
A plan will be proposed at the meet-
ing of the Board of Regents this after-
noon, tending to make the graduate
director of the Athletic Association a
member of the faculty. The action of
the Regents will be of vital interest to
athletics in the University. The pro-
posed plan which is very elaborate is a
compromise between the present sys-
tem and taking the management of
athletics wholly out of the hands of
the student body. If it is adopted it
will be a step in this latter direc-
tion. Few of the students knew
that this important measure was to be
decided so soon. It is to be hoped that
regents will hear both sides of the
question before making their decision.
It is reported that certain candidates
for the team have left the squad at the
training table and also broken training,
either on account of disappointment at
not being taken on the trips or because
of a mistaken impression that the team
is already chosen and that, therefore,
they stand no show. It is certainly a
sad comment on college spirit that such
a thing should take place. Never be-
fore in Michigan's proud foot ball his-
tory has there been a case of desertion
and it seems much the more to be
lamented when prospects are so bright.
It is to be hoped that the report is no
more than a mere rumor. We cannot
spare a single man and those who have
been training so faithfully owe it to
their college as well as to themselves
to stay in the game. The team is not
picked and any man who will stick to
it faithfully still stands a show for the
During the last few weeks the news-
papers, notably those in Chicago, have
contained numerous articles and al-
leged interviews in regard to the break-
ing up of the combination against the
University of Chicago. The implication
of most of the articles is that Michigan,
Wisconsin and Illinois are very anxious
to return to the old state of affairs.
The managers of these colleges, accord-
ing to the stories, are in Chicago Im-
portuning Stagg for games on tisn
grounds. The impression created is, to
say the least, injurious to the trium-
virate in that suspicion of bad faith on
the part of either of the other two
members of the compact is apt to be
aroused. It can benefit nobody un-
less it be the University at Chicago by
implying that the other colleges are be-
ing forced aound 'to A. A. . Staggs
At first these reports . stated that
SM-anager Fisher of Wisconsin was try-
ing to arrange a gate owith Chicago
for this year, if possible, or if not for
next year. This can be clearly seen by
those who are on the inside to be only
a rumnor, for the managers in this case
have not the power to arrange games
The agreement which keeps Chicago out
of western athletics is made by higher
authorities than college managers. It
is signed by President Draper of Illi-
nois, President Adams of Wisconsin,
and Professor Pattengill of Michigan.,
Their personal acquiescence is news-
sary before a manager can arrange a
Same with Chicago. This situation is
well known and it would be a waste of
time to confer with Stagg in regard to
games. Manager Fisher, of course,
took no such foolish action. The re-
tports are ioho'lly unfounded.
Last week Professor Pattengill was
brought into the scene as one desiring
a game for Michigan. He, howeer,
knew nothing about having such a de-
sire until his notice was called to the
newspaper report. He declared that the
colleges were as firm as ever in their
stand against Chicago, and that no
college would make arrangements until
the others were at liberty to do so.
Michigan does not intend to do so and
he has no fears that either of the otter
colleges will do so until Chicago comes
dtown from its high horse. No game
will be arranged this year. For the
future there may be some change..
During all this time Stagg is reported
as saying nothing. Hie maintains an
astute silence but implies that there is
something in the air. He has a very
good reason for keeping silence as he
knows nothing more of this suddetoy
acquired anxiousness to meet his team
that what he reads in morning papers.
The University of Califoria Athletic
Association is having considerable
trouble because the foot ball players
do not pay their training table board.
Of this year's squad only five have
paid anything. The others are verg-
ing dangerously near to professional-
The 'Varsity did not go out to the
Athletic field today for practice. Short
signal practice was, however, gone
through with on the campus. Only
about 25 men turned out.
Yale has fallen into line with the west-
ern uiversities and now has a band to
enthuse her athletes.
