WALKING RACE IS
Cross country walking as a sport for
interclass athletes is the latest inno-
vation of Floyd Rowe, director Cf in-
tramural activities. Director Rowe
has announced that he will add in-
struction and competition in this new
sport to his curriculum with the begin-
ning of cross country running next
The creation of this new branch of
interclass athletics is a result of a
demand for some such competition for
those men who wish some sort of out-
door athletics but who were unable
to enroll for competition in any of the
other sports. Many men who came
out last fall for cross country running
found themselves unable to keep up
the competition, and it was from these
men that the most general request for
,-es }c iitry .waling cam.
Cross country runnin.; and soccer,
according to Director Rowe, will be
t rclass sorts next fall onethe sae
footing as football. This year the
number of men who came out for cross
country running was so great that on-
ly a comparatively small number were
able to take part in the competition.
The inauguration of an interclass
schedule of races is expected to give
:hese men the kind of work they want.
The intense interest shown in soccer
football has led Rowe to add it to the
interclass curriculum. At Cornell Uni-
versity this kind of football is much
more popular than intercollegiate and
it is expected that it will become as
good a drawing card at Michigan as
the intercollegiate game now is.

MAY GIVE PARTIES
IN OPERA SEASON
Representative of Fraternities Will
Disus' Feasibility of
SPECIAL SHOW IS PROflSE
That the fraternities may have house
parties during the latter part of the
week of the :N14 Michigan Union op-
era. is a possibility now being con-
sidered. Inasmuch as but a few hous-
es are planning house parties for the
seond exama week, in the absence cf
the J hop, representative men from
several fraternities have expressed
themselves as highly in favor of the
opera week affair.
Rtepresentatives from all of the fra-
ternities formerly represented in the
J hop will meet to discuss the idea
after exams. Those who have been
considering the plan state that house
parties of this kind would not be ad-
ded events on the fraternity calendars,
but merely a substitution for the af-
fairs formerly held during the week
of tho hop.
Those in (barge of the opera state
that if the idea is generally accept
by the fraternities, one of the perfol'm-
ances will be given in special honor
of the cut of town guests. Although
nothing definite has been formulated.
the management of the Union suggests
that a large formal party might be
given at the Union, or in the gymnasi
urns at that time. The fraternity men
who have heard this proposal believe
that it will add considerable interest1
in the house party idea. Although thei
attraction would be less than for the
J hop, those proposing the idea are of'
the opinion that an opera performance,
with a large formal party, in additioni
to the regular farternity functions,
would make up a house program which
would meet with considerable popu-
CATLETT WILL BEI
IN INDOOR MEETS
Track prospects for the indoor sea-

hue since Trainer "Steve" Farrell an-
nounced that the injury received Tues.
day by James Catlett, '15, when hei

as at first appeared.
It was at first thought that Catlett
would be unable to do any active work1
during the indoor season but after
a second examination yesterday, Train-i
er Farrell stated that the Injured ath-
lete would be back in the gym in ai
couple of weeks.
The news is wlcome to Michigan's
track enthusiasts as a good record is1
expected from Catlett on the baslrt d l
his last year's all-fresh performanes.I
He also had an enviable track record
at the University of South Dakotg.
