Michigan's much vaunted spirit was
shown to be a negligible quantity last
night, when only ten men put in ap-
pearance at the track meeting in Wat-
erman gymnasium. Even the majori-
ty of the men on the rubbing list
were absent. As a last hope, another
meeting is scheduled for next Tues-,

as a Varsity sport at Michigan has
there been such a scarcity of men for

Rickey's successor comes to Ann
Arbor with both college and major

captained his nine at Illinois in the
days of intense rivalry between that
institution and the Maize and Blue.

As a number on the course of the
Oratorical association, Prof. Richard
D. T. Hollister will give a lecture-re-
cital of Sheridan's English comedy,
"The Rivals," in University Hall at
8:00 o'clock tomorrow night. Admis-
sion to the lecture will be by course
tickets or by single admission cards.
It had been originally intended that
this entertainment be given as one of
the course numbers last fall, but it
was postponed at that time. Profes-
sor Hollister has given this recital in
many cities in Michigan and has been
well received everywhere.

FRESH ENGINEERS DEFEATEI)
IN FIRST HOCKEY CONTEST
Doyle, Forward For the Engineer-Law
Team, Largely Responsible
In the first scheduled hockey game
of the inter-departmental series, the
engineer-law' team outpucked the
fresh engineers and grabbed the long
end of an 8 to 3 score.
Throughout the two periods, the
lack of team play was in evidence, and
individual working was relied upon by
both aggregations. Doyle for the en-
gineer-law team, was easily the most
brilliant star of the evening's perform-
ance scoring half of his team's total
The teams were as follows: Eng-
Laws-Herman, Lelande, Edwards,
Ratz, Doyle, Garritte; Fresh Eng.-

ferson and Griffin.

WVith the first of the indoor meets
but one week distant, the track au-
thorities are faced with a grave prob-
lem. It is believed that there are men
in the university who could be de-
veloped into valuable members of the
team. The cards signed at the time of
entrance last fall, and in the posses-
sion of Director Rowe indicate that
there is such material in school, and
every attempt is going to be made to
turn it out.
To secure the attendance of a larger
number at the next meeting, cards
will probably be mailed to all the
known material in the university, and E
all others with any latent ambitions
in that line will be urged to come.
Freshmen will be expected at this
meeting, and it may be that the young-
sters will be able to teach their elders]

men wishing to try for positions on
the team should report in uniform at
the baseball cage in Waterman gym-
nasium this afternoon at 1:00 o'clock.
Coach Lundgren will meet the men
and outline the work for the season.
So far the daily practices, participated
in mainly by the battery candidates,
have been merely light workouts in
charge of Captain Pontius. Most of
the veteran fielders have been out all
this week, however, and regular work
will probably begin at once.
No freshmen or ineligible men
should report for work, as the crowd-
ad condition of Waterman gymnasiun
makes it impossible to accommodate
suitably the regular candidates.

Famous Violinist Delights
A udience With Finished Art
An unalloyed joy was in
store for those who assembled
in Hill auditorium last night
to hear Carl Flesch, the notes
Hungarian violinist. By the perfection
of his technical deail, by depth of tone,
and breadth of musicianship this great
artist more than justified his high
Mr. Flesch's program was well cal-
culated to appeal to a discriminating
audience. His numbers were chosen
to show off the music, rather than to
display the possibilities of the violin.
In every case the player sank hirtself'
in the work he was performing.
The height of Mr. Flesch's achieve-
ment was reached in his last number,
a Paganini concerto. This he played
with such virility, sparkle, and crystal-
like clearness that little can be said
that is not superfluous. In a Bach se-
lection Mr. Flesch replaced the frigid
style of average performer with hu-
man understanding and flexible hand-
ling. Schubert's "Ave Maria" was dis-
tinguished by luscious tone, and was

tributed by Homer Samuels.
