present lot, which we regard as far
better than that of the schools within
we desire and do not have does not
the conference, circumscribed as they
are by harsh and narrow rulings. The
f.ct that we hope for a future rear-
rangement that will enable us to seek
the most desirable athletic antagonists
without restraint, does not mean that
we are at present dissatisfied. We
have found favorable alliances to the
eastward, and we have not had to trav-
el farther to get them than we would
to reach many of the conference breth-
ren. We have resumed athletic rela-
tions with Cornell in all branches of
sport and we were in the habit of
meeting the Ithacans before there was
a University of Chicago. Finer sports-
men than the Ithacans we have never
met. We have found many pleasant
rivals. The universities about us have
risen to an athletic prowess fully as
great, if not greater, than that of many
of the conference schools.
Michigan has been well classified as
a middle eastern uiiversity. While the
majority of our alumni are located
in the west a line drawn north and
south through Ann Arbor finds as
maiy students resident east as west
of it. Normally Michigan should play
schools both east and west and we de-
sire athletic relations with both. W(
look forward to a time when prejudices
will have died down, false barriers low
ered, and we may meet the strongest
in the west as well as the strongest in
the east in all branches of sport. We
remember many pleasant contests with
Minnesota on the gridiron, with Chi-
cago on the gridiron, track, and dia-
mond, with Illinois on the diamond
and with Wisconsin on the football
hield. We hope for more in the days
to come when jealousies will have been
The conference, originally Michi-
gan's creature, organized at Michigan's
instance and according to Michigan's
plans has, especially during the past
year, strayed far from what Michigan
believes in, in the regulation of sport.
Regulations have been pas'sed and now
exist in that body which make athletic
relations with the members of that
body impossible. Michigan has no de-
sire to give up her eastern alliances.

Michigan and the Conference.
In addressing the student body at
the University of Minnesota Dr. Will-
iams of that institution is reported to
have stated that Michigan is dissatis-
fied out of the conference and finds her
present athletic situation unsatisfac-
tory. The western press in general
takes a similar attitude raouarly por-
traying the Wolverines- as shut out
trom, or as having shut thmselves
away from, the western athletic pud-
ding. Such a view is far from accu-
rate. Michigan is not discontented with
present arrangements. The fact that
there ai~e yet athletic relations which
us she will be welcome.
