"Areameter" Has Many Advantages
Over Earlier Devices
Mr. J. Airey, instructor in engineer-
ing mechanics in the college of engin-
eering, has recently perfected an in-
strument for the measuring of areas
which is now being constructed in the
engineering shops.
This invention will be named the
"areameter." Its advantages over the
"planometer" is that it can be used in
the open field, accurately and quickly,
whereas the older instrument can only
be used after the results of the sur-
veyors have been obtained, and then
only on. a small scale drawing of the
lani or object to be measured.
The "areameter's" most practical
use will Ve in the measuring of verti-
cal section areas of railway cuts or
fills, and in estimating the areas of
various vertical sections of cargo space
in the holds of ships..

Syracuse Track Men Hold Hard Work-
Outs in Preparation for
Strong Wolverine9
Bowser, Colored Sprinter and Main-
stay of Aggregation, Should Make
Excellent Showing
SYRACUSE, New York, March 4.-
Following the withdrawal of the Syra-
cuse track team from the meet in Mad-
ison Square Garden, New York, Coach
Keane has been putting this track
squad through their paces daily and
expects to be in first-class shape for
the Michigan meet.
The encounter with the Wolverines
is scheduled for March 13, the week
following the New York event, and be-
cause of the proximity of the two,
Coach Keane decided not to enter his
men in the first-mentioned event, and
to concentrate his attentions upon the
Michigan meet. After reviewing the
result of the Michigan-Notre Dame en-
counter, Coach Keane said. "Michigan
will give us one of the hardest rubs
of the season. She is consistently
strong in every event."
Bowser, the colored sprinter who
has been the mainstay of the local
track aggregation in the dashes, has
been working out regularly, and is ex-
pected to give an excellent account of
himself against the dash men from the
Wolverine camp when Coach Farrell
conducts his charges here Donohue,
Dixon and Mixer, the quarter-milers,
have been working out in the sprints,
and with a two yard handicap are giv-
ing Bowser 'all kinds of trouble. In
the intramural meet Stanbro and
Shultz both finished ahead of the col-
ored flyer with a two-yard handicap.
Michigan is reputedly strong in the
sprints but the showing of these mnen
indicates that the dashes across the
floor will be exceptionally close.
Curtis has been showing all kinds of
form in the pole-vault, and when Coach
Keane saw the Michigan mark of 11
feet 2 in this event against Notre
Dame he smiled, for Curtis has been
doing consistently around 11 feet 9
inches. Rumors of a star in the Mich-
igan camp have reached here however,
and according to the advance dope the
winner of this event must clear 12 feet

Many High Schools to be Represented
at Meet on May 21 and 22 at
Ferry Field
More than 500 invitations to the sev-
enteenth annual interscholastic track
and field meet, to be held in Ann Ar-
bor May 21 and 22, have been mailed
out by Interscholastic Manager F. G.
Millard. Nearly every high school in
Michigan and most of the Ohio, Indi-
ana and Illinois schools have been in-
vited to the meet. Pittsburg and Buf-
falo, and several Wisconsin schools
also have been asked to send teams.
Kewatin Academy, the Wisconsin
school which sent a star team last
year, including such athletes as Robin-
son and Goelitz, has written for infor-.
mation this year and will probably en-
ter a team. Irish, one of the best
"prep" school cinder artists in the
country will probably perform for the
In answer to the call of Manager
Millard, six sophomores have reported
to try out for the assistant manager-
ships. They are: L. C. Heutis, Gordon
Smith, W. L. Owen, Harry Carlson, L.
G. Hulbert and C. D. Gilbert. As eight
men will be nominated for the assist-
antships, and four elected, at the May
athletic election, Manager Millard
wishes that several more sophomores
would report for the try-outs.
The assistants to the interscholastic
manager chosen at the last election
who have reported for work to Man-
ager Millard are: A. M. Bentley,; '16,
Harry Kerr '16, and R. J. Mills, '16L.
R. W. Thompson, '16, the fourth man
elected, has not yet reported, as the
matter of his eligibility is still in

According to Five Semesters' Showing,
This Year's Seniors Average
170 Counts Each
As the rule requiring seniors of the
literary college to have 135 points be-
fore graduation, goes into effect for
all men graduating a year from June,
it is now time for this year's juniors to
begin figuring whether or not they will
have the necessary number of points
at that time, according to administra-
tion officials of the university.
From present, indications, most of
the outgoing seniors at that time will
have little trouble in being able to
show the necessary 135 points, as the
average senior this year will have 170
points, according to figures computed
last summer. This does not mean that
the men will have that actual number
of points, but is merely a computation
of what they would have, if they con-
tinued the same grade of work that
they maintained during the five semes-
ters during which the marking system
was in effect up to that time.
Many inquiries have come into the

office as why the standard of neces-
sary points is not raised to more than
135, or 15 above the 120 hours needed
to graduate. In reply to this, officials
have stated that, should the number
of points be raised, instructors would
lower their standards of work and
give higher marks, thereby keeping
the relations between the marks given
and the number of points necessary to
graduation practically the same.
As to the results of the raise in the
necessary number of points, one official
is of the opinion that it will be an
incentive toward the student's electing
a greater number of hours. Contrary
to general opinion on the campus, it
will not be necessary for seniors to
gain 15 more points than hours, but
merely 135 points, whatever the num-
ber of hours that they acquire. This
will give the average student an op-
portunity to increase his total number
of points by electing more than 15
hours each semester.

or pretty close to it.
Newkirk won the mile in the Intra-
mural meet from scratch, the time
being 4:39. He should show consider-
able improvement before the dual
meet with the Maize and Blue comes
off, and he could have done even bet-
ter in this case had George who fin-
ished second, pushed him to any ex-
tent. Newkirk also placed in the half
mile, finishing second, although he was
allotted a 20-yard handicap. Coach
Keane will use him in the mile alone,
in all probabilities, against the Michi-
gan team, for the Wolverine aggrega-
tion is reputedly strong in both the
880 and the mile and the Orange will
have to concentrate its attack if it
expects to check the western invaders.
Coach Keane has been spending con
siderable time recently in coaching his
hurdlers. Michigan has a trio of men
who are fast over the high barriers in-
doors, and to prevent them from mak-
ing a clean sweep in this event, Keane x
has been drilling his hurdlers repeat-
edly. Delling, Kingsley and Lange
have all shown good form, Delling
looking particularly good. The Orange
can stand considerable improvement
yet, however, for the western team has
been running over the sticks in much
faster time than the local aggregation.
Mixer's time of 55 4-5 seconds in the
quarter mile is not particularly im-
pressive, but either Mixer or Dixon
should let the Wolverine representa-
tive who is entered in this event, know
that he has been engaged in real com-
petition before the struggle is over.
If a short relay race is added to the
program, Coach Keane will be able to
send a fast quartet into the field.

of entering College next tall.
