Work of the Y. M. C. A. conservation
committee is progressing rapidly un-

church work and to encourage their

Through the efficient methods of
Nagler, the committee is able to keep
in close touch with more than 300
students who are at present actively
interested in this conservation work.
He has appointed nine captains to take
charge of the work in their respective
churches. Assisting these captains is
a corps of 51 sergeants. The captains
who were appointed to do work in the
various local churches are as follows:
Methodist church, W. A. Pearl, '16,

But Michigan's Gun Men Must Defeat
All Remaining Contestants to
Gather Title
From the official reports last regis-
tered, the Michigan rifle team stands
in fourth place among the intercol-
legiate rifle teams which are compet-
Ing in class "C" of the National Rifle
association indoor tournament~ but
later unofficial reports based on the
official scores for the third match, have
placed Michigan in a two-cornered tie
from which she may emerge victor-
Considered from the point of matches
won and lost, Michigan is tied for first
place with Yale and Nebraska; from
the point of average scores Michigan
is tied with Kansas Agricultural Col-
lege for fourth, place. With the cham-
pionship awarded on a percentage
basis, figured on games won and lost,
as seems the most logical way of
awarding the honor, the manner of
disposition of which is uncertain to
the local Rifle club men, Michigan
must go through the season with a
clean slate.
Last Friday the Wolverine team met
the Nebraskan contingent, but the re-
sult of the conflict is not as yet known.
Should a Michigan victory be regis-
tered, the Wolverines will 'probably
jump to second place for team aver-
ages, and will be tie for first place
with 'the strong Yale team. Michigan,
inher last week's match shot a higher
score th.n she has ever before regis-
tered and it is a probable supposition
that she defeated the Nebraskans.
Four more matches remain on the
Michigan schedule and to close this
quartet comes the shoot against Yale,
Michigan's strongest opponent In the
struggle for the possession of the
championship. At present the Yale
team is shooting about 20 points above
the Michigan scores, but the Eli's ap-
pear to be going at top speed, while
the Wolverines are showing a steady
improvement fromweek to week. Mich-
igan's team is new and would be the
surprise of the class "C' contenders
if it were to capture first place, but if
the 10 men who are doing the shoot-
ing can continue to show such con-
sisten improvement as they have in
the past, the Wolverines should be
able to overtake the Yale team and
win the championship.
A slip on the part of the Michigan
team, and the loss of any one of the
next three games before the Yale
match would 'spell the destruction of
the championship chances. In order
to win in its class the Michigan team
must not, only win every one of the
next three games, but must also come
up to such excellency of scoring abil-
ity that it will be able to defeat the
Yale team in what now looks to be the
decisive match of the series.

Keen competition is expected for
positions on the University of Illinois
track team this year, as the candidates
have a trip to California as anin-
centive to urge them on. The aspir-
ants have been working for some time,
and they have put a lot of hard work
in their training in preparation for the
Varsity tryouts which were partially
held last week.
Considerable agitation has been
aroused at the University of Illinois
where the senate is seriously consid-
ering the proposition of limiting ath-
letes to only two sports. The matter

has been referred to a committee of
the senate and will be reported on at
the next meeting. Both student and
alumni members of the board of ath-
letic control went on record as unani-
mously opposed to the measure. The
alumni members were especially op-
posed to the, adoption of such a rule,
and considered the action of the sen-
ate as unwarranted at the present
Baseball practice at Cornell started
this week when Coach A. H. Sharpe is-
sued the first official call for candi-
dates for the Varsity baseball team.
The men will work out in squads in
Bacon practice hall until the weather
will permit them to work outdoors.
No general call has been made for the
candidates for the freshman team, al-
though the battery squad of the 1918
team will work out daily.
Track athletes at the University of
Maine will learn how to run by means
of the popular "movie," according to
the plan of their trainer, Art Smith.

Seniors at Williams seem to be the
learned class, judging from the fact
that 32 percent of the class received
extra cuts for excellence in studies
last semester. The sophomores with
27 percent of the class on the honor
list are second, and the class of 1916
with 23 percent of its members en-
titled to the cuts is third. There is a
total of '87 names on the list, seven
more than were on it last year, but
this number falls far below the estab-
lished record of 114.
Dieterich still retains the leader-
ship in the staiings of the individual
bowling league, the same relative po-
sition of the three leaders remaining
unchanged. Pezold has moved up into
a tie with Schmidt and Bancroft for
second honors. The stands follow:
