make the thousand mark in the Union
life membership campaign, the canvass
is about ready to start on the last lap.
Large returns were handed in yester-
day by the local alumni committee, and
the men in charge promise still more
to follow. Waldo M. Abbott, '11-'13L,

record of the business men's canvass
is well above that of the students.

Track coach Farrell yesterday an-
nounced the names of the men which
he had entered in the meet on Saturday
night in Detroit against the Y. M. C.
A. While the list given out is official
it is not expected that all of the men
named will be taken on the trip, it
being the intention of Farrell, as an-
nounced earlier in the week, to take
only about thirteen men on the trip.
Tryouts in the sprints and the mid-
dle distance runs were held under the
direction of the coach yesterday, but he
has not yet given out the results.
The following are the men who will
be taken:
: High jump-I: D. Butler, L. E. Wat-
erbury, W. C. Davis.
Shot put-C. F. Cross, J. W. Ed-
wards, S. J. Leach.
25 yard dash-H. E. O'Brien, J.,
Ziegler, S. G. Fontanna, J. H. Herrick,
W. E. Burby, Reno Root, N. T. Thurs-
ton, R. H. Leslie.{
Hurdles-C. B. Corbin, N. T. Thurs-
ton, Cecil Skinner.w
440 run-K. M. Stevens, M. 0. Rob-1
inson, M. F. Dunne, H. A. Donnelly.I
Pole vault-L. D. Bailey, G. L. Kess-1
ler, Cecil Skinner.e

880 yard run-C. S. Kirby, J. J. Ku-
cera, H. M. Gregory, R. F. Kohr.

Michigan will send a two mile relay
team to the Pittsburg relay races, to
run in competition with a team from
Cornell. This was definitely announc-
ed yesterday when Cornell was heard
from to the effect that they would
comply with the terms as subjected to
Trainer Farrell has been working
with the relay .men since the exami-
nation period, and has seven men of
first water caliber to pick the quartet
from. Haff and Jansen are considered
as fixtures on the team, but the re-
maining two Tplaces will be fought for
by the other five.
Brown,the captain of the cross coun-
try squad, and a number of the record
breaking two mile team of last season
has had a fall from form, and is run-
ning at a speed in the half mile, far
below his normal gait. Griest, how-
ever, a former high jumper, has fitted
into his place, and is practically cer-
tain to be the third member of the
Murphy, Lamey Brown, and Fox
complete the roll of the chief contend-
ers. All these men are able to trav-
erse the half mile distance in close to
two minutes, so that the Wolverine
college is sure of a representation at
Pittsburg that will not perceptibly
lower the standard set last year.
Upon motion of the prosecution, the
assault and battery case of the People
vs. Carl G. Schoeffel, '13-'15L, which
was to have been tried in Justice W.
G. Doty's court this morning, has been
postponed until March 12.J
The charge against Schoeffel wasJ
preferred by Mrs. F. J. Webb, Oakland
avenue, February 24, as the result of
an altercation which occurred when
Schoeffel attempted to secure someJ
trunks which were being detained by
Mrs. Webb. When arraigned, the de-]
fendant pleaded not guilty to the1
charge. Schoeffel has retained Attor-!
ney George W. SaSmple as his counsel.
Three snappy tussles featured thet
second set of matches in the wrestling

ing a victory after five minutes of hard1
work. L. C. Reimann, '15, bested F. L.
Rehor, '17, in the same period: In thef
third match C. V. Handy, '16, won eas-
ily over W. T. Crossman, '16.g
Twelve matches are scheduled for
Saturday afternoon and a large crowd

um last night the soph lits defeated
the fresh homeops by an 18 to 17 score.

pharmics beat the fresh engineers in
a 12 to 7 battle. When Maulbetsch

sity, seconded the invitation extended
by the Michigan official, while Regis-

didn't have a chance to show his class.
The fresh medicswere easily beaten
by the soph laws who scored 21 to the
medics 7. According to the dope the
senior laws were beaten by the senior
engineers. The score was 27 to 8.
The soph lit-fresh homeop game
started out with a rush and there was
some lively scoring by both sides.
When the half was over the score was
tied at 12 and 12. Each side started
the second half with added vim, but
the pharmics seemed to have the edge
on the lits, till just before time was
called. The score was brought to a
tie by Warner's timely field goal. A
short rest was granted after which
five minutes of play were allowed to
break the dead-lock. A foul was call-
ed on the lits and Maggio for the hom-
eops scored 1. The ball was. rushed
down from center to Warner who shota

Eastern Intercollegiate May
Following Completion of


The great Eastern Intercollegiate
track meet will be staged on Ferry
field, and not in the very far distant
future, according to a statement made
by Charles Crowe, Varsity track man-
ager, who has just returned from New
York City where he attended the meet-
ing of the Intercollegiate association
last Saturday at the Waldorf-Astoria
hotel. The coming of the eastern ath-
letes to Michigan for their biggest meet
of the year, is contingent on the com-
pletion of the Wolverine stadium, to
be started this year, and the conse-
quent ability of Michigan to handle
the huge crowds of spectators and ath-
Until that time, Michigan will make
no attempt to bring the big meet to
Ann Arbor, but so friendly is the atti-
tude of the eastern universities to
Michigan that Manager Crowe does not
believe that any serious opposition to
an invitation will arise when it is once
extended. a
The Michigan manager was present
and voted at the meeting which pass-
ed the rule giving points to the win-
ners of the first five places in the big
track meet, which admitted Colby to
the Association and which selected
Cambridge for the staging of the 1914
meet. Crowe supported Pennsylvania
and Syracuse in this latter fight, pre-
ferring them, with their close rela-
tions with the Wolverines, to Har-
vard, just entering on a period of
what is hoped shall be a friendly ath-
letic intercourse.
