Three Distinct Issues
here were three distinct points:

been perverted to a policy of un-

Emil Seidel, who lectures in Newber-

start as a carver and designer. He was
born of German parentage, in Schuyl-

his parents moved to Milwaukee five
years later. He graduated from, one
of the public schools there, and then
entered his trade as an apprentice.
When he was 22 years old, he went
to Berlin, and spent his time there
perfecting himself in his trade, and al-
so attending night school. In 1892 he
returned to Milwaukee, and then ad-'
ded pattern-making to his other trades.
In 1884 he helped organize the wood
carvers, and later became a member of

weeks. Coach Farrell of the varsity

The 1918 squad, from present indi-

more than ordinary promise have put
in an appearance. Scofield, one* of the
members of the freshman relay team,
which walked away with the inter-class
race last fall at the Pennsylvania foot-
ball game, has been running against
"Hal" Smith and O'Brien, and, with a
one yard handicap, has been forcing
the two Varsity men to extend them-
selves to the utmost.'
Several promising milers have turn-
ed up, and a couple of likely looking
440 men have put in an appearance.

Just who will represent Michigan at
Buffalo on February 5, against the
University of Pennsylvania, in the
medley relay race, is a big problem+
Coach Farrell stated last night that
although the four fastest men in col-
lege in the respective events would be
taken along, as yet he hadn't the
slightest idea as to who they would be.
The medley affair is four laps, the
first runner going 220 yards, the sec-
ond a quarter of a mile, the third a
half, and the last man a full mile.
Captain Smith appears to be the log-
ical selection for the first distance,
as long as there is but one sprinter
required, but 'O'Brien, last year's
freshman crack, has been showing the
captain the way down the floor on sev-
eral occasions during the past week,
and may possibly reverse the dope
and land the place. 'Smith, however,
is doped out to come through before
the final selection is made.
Whoever lands the position will
have to run against Donald Lippin-
cott. Lippincott, it will be remember-
ed, finished second to Ralph Craig in
the Olympic games in Sweden, in
both dashes, but Coach Farrell stated
that .he wasn't fearing this Olympic
man as much as he was another.
Smith's excellent performance at Har-
vard in the 220 in the eastern inter-
collegiates speaks for itself.
In the quarter, however, an entirely
different proposition is faced. Penn-
sylvania boasts of a world beater in
Meredith. He won this event in the
eastern intercoilegiates last year, and
holds the world's record for the half
Murphy was the half-miler on last
year's squad, but several other prom-
ising 880 men have appeared, promi-
nent among whom is Carver. Then
again there is the possibility of switch-
ing Murphy to the quarter, if Burby
doesn't show enough speed.
Several candidates appear for the
mile, among them being Ufer, Carroll,
Lynch and Donnelly. Ufer will be
given a trial at both the mile and the
half, so that the situation is about as
complicated as one could wish.
