Eighty-Five Candidates Turn Out For
First Meeting of Year Held
in Trophy Room
Interest in cross-country running
has increased wonderfully during the
past year, if tht enthusiasm displayed
at' the first, meeting Tuesday evening
in the trophy room of the gymnasium
can be taken as a criterion. Eighty-
five candidates turned out to hear of
the plans for the present season.
Trainer Farrell, Intramural Direc-
tor Rowe,,Dr. May, and Captain Trelfa
spoke. Farrell impressed the aspir-
ants with the information that if the
showing of the squad warranted, a'
team would be sent to the intercollegi-

Cupid Driven from Feich Park by

City's Cruel Vice Commissioners

Cupid has been given the knockout
wallop. He has been driven from his
Elysian fields and forced to hie his
way to the wind swept boulevards. In
the good old days, he took advantage
of the protecting darkness in and
about Felch Park, and many were the
pointed barbs that he planted in the
unprotected hearts of the couples that
held down the benches in that Eden of
Ann Arbor.
It has been rumored that the record
for this park for fall and summer en-
gagements has been approached only
by that of the island, and the babbling
waters must be taken into considera-
tion when one gazes at the diamond

ring record of the insular refuge of
And now Felch Park, the Felch Park
of old is no more. For in the middle
of the darkest and coziest spot in the
confines of the place, the first verse
of Genesis was carried out. A trium-
virate consisting .of the faculty, the
E. M. E. and the city fathers has erect-
ed a high powered Tungsten light on
a twentyy foot concrete post, and its
radiance is more than refreshing.
It is disgusting. Being no prophet,
we cannot hazard the life of the lamp,
or the post on which it is fastened.
But a good guess will place the time
limit at two weeks.


Freshmen Falling Is Flat Feet
Flat feet seems to be the most
prominent defect found by Dr.
Geo. A. May in his physical ex-
amination of freshmen. In most
cases the new men admit the.
wearing of rubber soles and;
heels which has been popular
since the tango was first intro-
duced. Rubber bottoms allow
the instep to give way, claims
Dr. May, and as a result the
wearers of these shoes Invari-
ably sustain floggy, fiat feet

n line failed to hold, and his trial

uchdown, and kicked the other goal

Maulbetsch, in addition to scoring
ro touchdowns, showed a marked im-
-ovement in defensive work. He also
ayed a prominent part, along with
aptain Raynsford, in grabbing off
ray passes from the visitors. Catlett
id Hughitt were the other two best
ound gainers, but neither of the vet-
ans managed to get away for as long
.ins as the youngsters.
On defense the line fought hard, but
as up against a combination which
is its equal man for man. Michi-
mn could not gain through the line
nsistently, 'despite Hughitt's insist-
.ce on trying plays there. Such tac-
s inevitably resulted in calling on

st ground gainers for the Varsity,
in the two previous games.

The first workout was held yester-
day and today the larger number of
those who have signified their inten-

will leave the gymnasium every after-

by the club this year, one in the first
semester and the second in the last
semester, besides a special production
for -the Junior hop, if a Junior hop is
permitted. Provi4ing the Junior dance

During the summer the automobile
laboratory made a complete installa-
tion of a. Diehl electric dynamometer
for testing automobile motors, which
has the greatest speed range of any
in the country.
At present the laboratory is setting

Yearlings Are Prepared for Ypsilanti
Game on Saturday
Freshman Coach Douglas gave his
candidates an easy workout yesterday
before the Varsity-Mt. Union game.
A strenuous session of blocking and
tackling was followed by a short sig-
nal drill, after which the yearlings
were allowed to view the Mt. Union
All of the freshmen came through
the brush with the scrubs in fine
shape, and are ready for the first game
with the Ypsilanti Normal team on
Saturday. Douglas was pleased with
the work of his charges and looks for
a good game this week. The backfield,
in particular, is playing wonderful
ball and should run up a good score
on the Normalites, if the line plays
up to its early season form.
Havoc reigned in peace at the Mich-
igan Union last night when Sol Maz-
da's electric stare died out, and caus-
ed agitated officials to produce candles
for illumination.'
The fact that some 150 men were
gathered in the lobby to partake in
the smnoc preparatory to launching
the man-to-man membership campaign
did not lessen the confusion, either.
Some said the trouble was in the
transformer, . others that something
was wrong with the fuse, but the in-
formation given out by the electric
light company was as subtle as recent
dispatches from Paris, while retain-
ing all the confidence of those from
