..First Year Men Annex 50 1-3 Points,
Juniors Get 49 1-3, Seniors 24,
and Sophomores Able to
Gain But 2 1-3.
Haff, Thought to Have Bad Tendon,
Sets Up New Mark in"
Quarter Mile
Surprises were frequent at the Var-
sity meet yesterday morning, when the
freshmen won by a margin of one point
over their nearest competitors, the
juniors, with scores of 50 1-3 and 49
1-3 r espe tively The seniors slipped
into third ce with a count of 24
and the soph ores gained meager
recognition in th total, with 2 1-3
points. Haff su to be slowed up
with a endon, set p a new Fer-
ry eld mark in the q rter, and
Smith defeated Kohler in the discus.
The times and distances in the track
and field events were all of a high
grade giving they visitors a favorable
imfression of Michigan's track pow-
ers and speaking well for success in
the Harvard stadium next week.. Koh-
ler was individual point-getter with
13 to his credit, and C. B. Smith and
Bond were tied for second with 10
Captain Haff in the 440 yard dash
celebrated his last public appearance
or Ferry field in a spectacular fash-
ion, smashing the field record with a
time of 48 3-5. The new horse-shoe
track helped in this record-breaking
feat as the runners were not slowed
up by so many turns. Jansen kept
at the heels of the Michigan captain
throughout the race and followed to
the tape within a few feet.
Sargent and Smith were the only
other seniors to place first in their
events, these men and Haff gathered
21 of the senior's total of 24. .Sargent
was out of shape, and could only get
over 5 feet 11 1-2 inches.
The junior's strength lay with Bond
and Seward in the dashes, Kohler in
the weights and Jansen and Brown in
the middle distances. It was in the
hurdles that the freshmen showed
eir power, as they blanketed all the
places over both the low and high
sticks. Lynch and Fox performed well
in the longer distances, winning the+
mile and two mile runs for the fresh-
The freshmen cinched their hold on
the victory in the last event. The
score was announced with the juniors
leading by one point, but Catlett by
entering the pole vault after compet-
ing in the broad jump changed the al-,
lotment of points here and put his;
team in the lead.
Craig and Greene were kept out of,
the competition by orders of Trainer
Farrell, as Craig was in need of a rest
and Greene has a weak knee to be;
coaxed along into shape.

Will Be First of Kind Attempted by
Foreign Students in Any Ameri.
can university.
A magazine devoted to the interests
of the foreign students will be launch-
ed under the auspices of the Cosmopol-
itan club next fall. The periodical
will be the first of the kind attempted
by foreign students in any American
university, and officials of the club ex-
pect it to wield a strong influence in
boosting the prestige of Michigan as
an institution for foreign students.
Financial support has been assured
by business men interested in the for-
eign students and a liberal advertis-
ing patronage has been promised.
The policy of the magazine has not
been definitely decided upon, but it is
expected that it will appeal not only to
the campus, as the range of contents
will contain contributions of writers
in universities throughout the world.

Swinging about May poles with the
grace of flitting nymphs, university
women danced out another field day in
a blaze of Japanese lanterns on Palm-
er field last night. The entire after-
noon was given up to tennis, hockey,
archery and games, with a basket
supper on the slope of the hill at 6:30
o'clock. The class dances and senior
parade featured the evening.
Senior women began the evenings
festivities by a cap and gown parade,
forming the block "M" and their class
numerals. The sophomores danc-
ed the May pole frolic clad in
the seven colors of the rainbow, wind-
ing to and fro in a mingling of color.
Junior women presented the reign

led by the seniors, every person car-

Setting four new Michigan Inter-
scholastic marks and one new world

1 s

interscholastic record, the fifteenth
annual gathering of the high school
athletes at Ann Arbor has passed in-
to history, stamped as probably the
most successful that has ever been
held. To three Chicago schools go the
first three honors, University High
leading all others by a good margin
and Lewis Institute second, with Ev-
anston Academy a good third. Grand
Rapids had the edge on all the state
schools, with West Branch pressing
it close, and Alpena next in line. Also
all the four new records will be cred-
ited to the Illinois visitors.
Cory, the elongated hurdler of Uni-
versity High of Chicago furnished
some 'excitement when he extended
himself and upset the world's inter-
scholastic in the 220 sticks by three
fifths of"a second. The former mark
was twenty-five flat and made by
Schouber in 1901. Also there is ev-
ery probability that it will stand for
some time to come although the win-
ner took the race handily and was not
exceptionally hard pressed.
The other records to go by the
boards were the pole vault, the quar-
ter mile, and the relay. O'Meara of
Evanston smashed the old record in
the 440, reducing it from 52:2 to 51:4.
University High kept up its average

by lowering the half mile relay mark
from 1:33.4 to 1:33.1. On the whole
the meet was probably the fastest that
will be seen here for some years and
certainly far surpasses any forner
To Blacklock of Grand Rapids goes
the honor of being the largest individ-
ual point gatherer, he amassing ten
points in the field events alone and
by his efforts Grand Rapids took
fourth place. Sheldon of West Branch
and Corbin of Alpena tied for second
honors with eight apiece. Von Thron
of Oak Harbor, a team in himelf, upset
all the dope by taking - the hundred
yard dash and tieing the interscholas-
tic record of ten flat. University High
