In answer to the postals mailed by
Director Rowe more than 100 would-

IGHT be athletes have signified their inten-
tion of entering the "dub" track meet
11 ap- which will be held the afternoon and
im, at evening of March 14.
ate The "dub" meet is an idea of "Rosy"
himself, and is an innovation in Mich-
read-
e." -igan athletics. In previous years
ne of those men who were not aspirants for
.erica. varsity honors received little or no
n be- attention from the coaches.Prepara
tform tion for the "dub" meet, however, of-
J. P. fers to such men a chance to receive
individual attention and to find wheth-
er or not they have any ability in
ented these lines.
and," Until the time scheduled for the
rrol's meet, Director Rowe will spend each
e giv- afternoon at the gymnasium, and will
y and give the benefit of his experience to
tinee, any who will report to him,
pices- On account of gym classes, the run-
An- ning track is not always available.
Consequently Rowe has set aside the
time from 3:55 to 4:15 o'clock and
night from 4:55 to 5:15 o'clock for training
night those interested In the mile and half-
e en- mile runs. Pole vaulters and shot
ercial putters will get their chance to work'
" be- out early Wednesday and Saturday af-
ranch ternoons, while those participating in
ectri- the other events will be coached at
any other times.

Michigan's 1914 baseball season is
on in earnest, for yesterday morning
the big grey cage was suspended from
the rafters of Waterman gymnasium,
and fifteen battery men worked out
in the afternoon.
Captain Pontius was in charge of
the work, as Coach Lundgren will not
be back until the first of the week.
By that time it is expected that the
men will have their arms in shape,
and the long process of careful de-
velopment will begin, followed by the
inevitable elimination.
Goodloe H. Rogers, '14L, star catch-
er of last year's nine until he broke
his ankle in a game against Syracuse
on Ferry field, was at the gym yester-
day to bid his teammates good-bye.
"Pud" leaves this morning for St.
Louis, where he will join the St. Louis
Browns for the spring training trip.
Branch Rickey, coach of the Wol-
verines last spring, is managing the
Mound City team, which will train at
Petersburg, Fla. Rogers was with the
St. Louis team during the latter part
of last season, but his leg was not in
the best of shape.
Another Michigan player will soon
leave Ann Arbor for major league
company. Johnnie Lavans, star short-
stop year before last and during the
early part of last season will again
be with the World Champion Athletics.
Lavans was with the St. Louis Browns
during the first part of last season, but
was sold to Connie Mack by George
Stovall, just before Rickey took charge
of the Browns. Lavans, although he
played regularly with the Browns, did
not -play many games for Mack, but
managed to get in on the world series
coin last fall.
Fred Blanding, a former Wolverine
mound star, and for the last two sea-
sons a member of the Cleveland Naps
has signed a contract with the Feder-
al league, according to current reports.
Another former Michigan player,
"Jock" Ezenroth, will go south for a
tryout with Rickey's St. Louis Browns.
Ezenroth, who captained his nine sev-
eral years ago, has appeared nearly
every June since then with "Jerry"
Utley as one of the batteries in the an-
nual alumni game.
It is reported Clarence Lehr, '14L,
formerly of the Princeton Varsity nine,
is to be given a tryout with the Cin-
cinnati Reds as a catcher. Lehr could
not be reached last night.
ALL LAW SMOKER SCHEDULED
TOMORROW NIGHT AT UNION
Arrangements have been nearly
completed for the all-law smoker
which will be held at the Union, to-
morrow night at 7:00 o'clock. An ef-
fort is being made to secure Judge
Harry Olson, of Chicago as the prin-
cipal speaker. The remainder of the
program will consist in a number of
talks by members of the law faculty,
musical selections and special stunts
offered by the respective law classes.
Tickets for the smoker may be ob-
tained from the members of the class
social committee at 25 cents.

FOURTEEN SECURE
PERFECT RECORDS
According to the semester grades,
mailed to students in the literary de-
partment from Registrar A. G. Hall's
office yesterday afternoon, fourteen
students in the department received
marks of A in all of their courses for
the half year's work.
To one of these, Frances Green, '14,
of St. Johns, Mich., belongs the unique
distinction of having received similar
marks for three semesters in succes-
sion. Miss Green was given the high-
est grade possible in all of her courses
in both semesters of 1912-1913, and has
repeated this performance for the
semester just finished. Five of those
getting all A's this semester, includ-
ing Miss Green, received them for the
second semester in succession. The
majority of the other high-mark stu-
dents ,were freshmen, for whom, ac-
cording to the department officials, the
earning of such marks is somewhat
easier than for the upper classmen.
The number of A students this sem-
ester is slightly below that of last
June, when eighteen were given the
coveted mark in all of their courses.
In February of 1913 a bare dozen gain-
ed the high distinction.
The grades were mailed from the

1917 TRACK MEN WILL MEET
IN PRELIMINARY SATURDAY
A preliminary meet for freshmen
track aspirants will be held in Water-

Trainer Farrell yesterday issued a
call to all first year men to report to
him at 2:45 o'clock, ready for par-
ticipation.
Competition in every event on the
track calendar will be staged in the
meet, which is intended as a means
whereby the coach can get a line on
the material for the 1914 All-Fresh
team. The meet of Saturday will not
be in the nature of a try-out for the
