's Athletic Record Second
e West of New York
Mate; Contribute to


Daily For Michigan

Michigan's athletic record is second
to that of no other university of the
west or middle west. Her teams have
shown all-time supremacy over every
western conference school in every
branch of competition. Six times has
Michigan carried off the football cham-
pionship honors of the conference with
an unstained record, and in 1905, she
suffered her only defeat at the hands
of Chicago. For the entire 1905 sea-
son, Michigan ran up 495 points
against her opponents two.
Michigan has had more players on
Walter Camp's all-American elevens
than'any other western school, and has
the unique distinction of having two
players, Heston and Schultz, on
Camp's all-time all-American-the
highest honor that can be awarded to
.a football player. Heston, Michigan's
famous half-back, has scored more
-points than any other football player
in the annals of intercollegiate foot-
ball, having carried the ball across
the line enough times to total 614
points, scored by modern methods.
In track, however, Michigan is su-
preme. In ten years competition in
the Western Intercollegiate, Michi-
gan's teams have carried off the cham-
pionship six times, one year, scoring
more points than all the competitors.
She has won more than 80 per cent
of all dual track meets in which she
has met conference representatives,
Cornell and Syracuse. For the six
years from 1903 to 1908 inclusive,
Michigan has seven successive victo-
ries, including a world's record, at the
Penn relays.
Michigan has sent seven teams to
compete in the eastern intercollegiate.
The first year, she scored the second
'highest number of points. In the fol-
lowing two years, she was unable to
finish higher than sixth and fifth re-
spectively. But for the following four
years, Michigan's track men scored the
third highest number of points of all
competing varsity team. No team west
of Pennsylvania has a record which
approaches that of Michigan.
Ralph Rose, '04, represented Amer-
ica in two Olympic games, in the
weight events, carrying off highest
honors on both occasions, and posting
a world's record which has since been
At the last Olympic games at Stock-
holm, two wearers of the "M" repre-
sented America. Ralph C. Craig, '11,
won both the 100 and 200 meter dashes
in phenomenal time. Craig also holds
worlds' and intercollegiate records in
these two dashes. "Hap" Haff, varsity
track captain in 1913, finished fifth in
the 400 meter run at Stockholm, a
performance which ranks him among
the five best quarter milers in the
world. "Johnnie" Garrels, '07, held
the intercollegiate record for the 120
yard hurdles, which was broken at
the last intercollegiate at Cambridge.
During the season of 1912-1913 Mich-
gan s athletic teams covered an ag-
gregate distance of 11,900 miles. No
other great university whose schedule
calls for a majority of games on the
home grounds, comes anywhere near
this record. Notre Dame and Carlisle,

First Batting Practice

of SeasonI

Results in Record Breaking
Number of Men For
the Nine
Complete List of Candidates Shows
Many Veterans and Host of
Raw Recruits
Nearly 50 candidates for the Varsity
baseball team turned out for practice
yesterday afternoon in the gymnasium,
exceeding by a score the largest pre-
vious attendance. Coach Lundgren
made good his promise to give the men
their first taste of batting, and had
an opportunity to look over all the
men as they faced the pitchers.
The lack of promised window screens
somewhat hampered the workout, as
the batting was limited to the cage.
The coach will give his squad the
same kind of work today, and will also
hold the regular practice session on
Monday, although it is a university
The list of candidates for the team,
as compiled yesterday by Walter Em-
mons, '14E, Varsity manager, follows.
The veterans are: Captain Pontius,
lb; McQueen, 2b; Hughitt, 3b; Baker,
ss; Sheehy, of; Cory, of; Howard, of;
Quaintance, p; Baribeau, p; Sisler, p;
and Baer, c. Other battery men who
were on the squad all last year, but
failed to win their letter, are Rippler,

Heredity Course Proves Popular One;
Prof. O. C. Glaser's course in hered-
ity, in which there are about 300 stu-
dents enrolled, has proved to be one
of the most popular courses ever offer-
ed in the zoology department.
Nominations for the elective posi-
tions of the Michigan Union Boat club
were announced yesterday by the nom-
inating committee of the association.
Inasmuch as the present officers were
not elected last spring, but have since
been appointed to fill vacancies, and
because the club has had practically
no activities .from which the commit-
tee could judge the capabilities of the
various men, it was decided to renomi-
nate as follows: for commodore, H. S.
Parsons, '15E; vice-commodore, W. S.
Davidson, '15; secretary, P. H. Mid-
dleditch, '15E; treasurer, H.G Gault,
These men have not had an oppor-
tunity to show what they can do thus
far, but are the only ones who are
familiar with the plans for the pro-
posed spring regatta. Any 15 active
members of the club may nominate
other men by petition, which must be
in the hands of the secretary by'Feb-
ruary 28. The election will be held
March 7. Faculty representatives, Dr.
Henri Hus and Prof. J. E. Reighard,
were also renominated.
Committees have been appointed to
arrange for a spring regatta and car-
nival to be held on the Huron river
May 29 and 30, permission for which
has already been granted by the fac-
ulty. The idea is to make the whole
week-end a gala occasion, the Boat
club events to be supplemented by the
spring games and baseball game with

Gloomy Track Prospects Make Meas.
ures Necessary to Awaken Spirit
and Interest More
Halff Nilers to Get Hardest Workout of
the Season in Afternoon's
Speed Trials
Michigan's track. candidates will
meet in Waterman gymnasium Wed-
nesday evening in an attempt to awak-
en the slumbering college spirit. The
date for this meeting was first set at
Tuesday, but because of the glee club
concert on that night was switched to
The track situation so far has not
been brightened in any respect, and
Farrell is resting his hopes on the
effect of the meeting to furnish him
with more material to work with.
It was expected that Smith, who ran
second in the two mile at the eastern
inter-colelgiates last year, would be
back in school this semester and avail-
able for track work. This expectation
failed of realization, so that the team
is left without a two miler or even a
candidate at this distance.
The high jump attracted one can-
didate earlier in the season; but
Griest, this one hope has been devel-
oped into a half miler, and is consider-
ed by Trainer Farrell to be more val-
uable to the team in this line. It is
probable that he will be the fourth
man on the two mile relay team, to
fill the vacancy left by Haimbaugh.
Farrell plan- to give the half milers
the hardest workout that they have
been treated to so far this year, in the
afternoon's practice today. They will
race in couples, and their times will
be taken.
A "Conference of Medical Euca-
tion," to be attended by a number of
America's foremost physicians and
surgeons, will be held in Chicago Feb-
ruary 24 and 25. Nearly all of the
larger universities will have represen-
tatives at this meeting Dr. V. C.
Vaughan, dean of the medical depart-
ment, Dr. C. W. Edmunds, of the De-
partment of medicine and surgery, and
Mr. Walter H. Sawyer, of the Board
of Regents, will represent the Univer-
sity of Michigan. President Lowell
of Harvard University will deliver an
address before the body.
At this meeting there will be a gen-
eral discussion of the progress and
advancement of medicine. The medical
schools of the country will be rated,
and the relation of the medical de-
partments to the universities will be
emphasized. The work of the state
boards of medicine will be explained
in detail. The main purpose of the
organization is to bring the leading
men of the medical profession togeth-
er to discuss medical ethics and recent
