Think Ufer May Run Half-Mile
Two Minutes If Hard



Despite the rain, mud, wind and hail
at Notre Dame last Saturday, Coach
Farrell's Varsity track squad pulled

through the meet in excellent shape,
and the coach has centered his atten-
tions upon the Syracuse struggle
which comes next Saturday.
The coach stated last night that
there would be ,no trials for the Syr-
acuse meet, with the possible excep-
tion of the low hurdles. It is his in-
tention to use everyone on the squad
that he can, and only the fact that
each team will be allowed but two
contestants over the low sticks, makes.
the trials necessary.
The showing made by Fontana in
the quarter mile last Saturday against
Notre Dame pleased Coach Farrell
mightily, for although "Stan" did not
win, his defeat is attributed to the
weather conditions. Fontana was lead-
ing by 10 yards, but when he struck
the final stretch, the combined wind
and mud proved too much for him.
The time was several seconds slower
than Fontana did in the Varsity meet
the week before. "Stan" will be up
against Captain Donohue o'f Syracuse
in the 440, and Michigan track follow-
ers are going to see a pretty race.
Max Robinson and lIuntington have
both been running right on Fontana's
heels, and the 440 should prove to be
one of the feature events of the after-

I were to ask you for what in your
college life you are most grateful?'
Then he proceeded to find his answei
in picturing the joys of college friend-
ships with the characteristic, kindly
way which has won for him the title
of "Michigan's grand old man," and
endeared him to thousands of students
and alumni.
About 1,000 near-graduates 1clad in
their black academic robes gathered
for the traditional exercises. On the
platform sat Doctor Angell, President
Hutchins, the Reverend Stalker, Dean
Victor C. Vaughan, of the Medical
School, Assistant Dean W. H. Butts, of
the engineering college, and Registrar
A. G. Hall. The program opened with
the invocation by the Rev. Arthur W.
Stalker, of the Methodist church, fol-
lowed by a solo by Chase B. Sikes, '16,
and the congratulatory remarks by
President Harry B. Hutchins. When
Dr. Angell spoke, he touched the key-
note of the occasion.
"Judging from my own remem-
brance," he said, "the finest thing in'
college is to form intimate friendships
which are a source of abiding joy
through later years. It is a great com-
fort for us to know that they will leave
their. glow and form your strongct
bond of loyalty to Michigan. For a
long time, I met with four friends a
few days each year somewhere by the
seaside to renew old acquaintance-
ships. What better hope can I wish
for you than that you carry away such
a blessed memory?" Dr. Angell was
looking well, and appeared to enjoy
the exercises. He spoke with remark-
able clearness and force.
President Hutchins counselled the
seniors to do independent, constructive
thinking, and exercise self-control.
"Don't depend for the future on what
you have done here," he said in part,
"If you have not gathered power to
think constructively and independent-
ly, you have not gained much from
your books. Every man who would
control others must control himself
first, and be able to analyze and meas-
ure himself. Never has the student
had the same wealth of opportunity
to take a great variety of subjects. In
this liberal freedom of choice, how-
ever, there is the danger of over-spe-
cialization. When you get out in the
world, be bigger than your profes-
After the program, the seniors
marched around the campus between
aisles of onlookers, describing an M in

the tug-of-war teams will be started
in Waterman gym.
Both first and second year men will
enter the relay tryouts, which will be
held from 2:30 to 5:00 o'clock tomor-
row and Friday afternoons. Each man
will be timed in the 220-yard dash,
and three teams of 16 runners each
will be picked from each of the two
classes. Clair Ditchy, '15A, will be on
hand to direct the running.
Tug-of-war aspirants will be given
their opportunity to weigh in from
2:30 to 5:00 o'clock tomorrow and. Fri-
day afternoons in the gym. The cus-
tomary three battles will be staged,
the lightweight team including those
men weighing under 135 pounds, mid-
dleweight under 160 and the heavy-
weight above that mark. The teams
will be composed of 50 men each.
It was decided at the student coun-
cil meeting last night to start the re-
lay races and pushball contest at 8:30
o'clock on the morning of May 22 at
Ferry field. This means that the un-
derclassmen will assemble on the cami-i i
pus in time to leave for the field at]
8:00 o'clock. Pep for the contests will
be stirred up at the fresh and sopl,
mass meetings to be held at 7:00
o'clock in the west physics lecture-
room on Wednesday and Thursday
nights of next week, respectively. Car-
roll B. Haff, '15L, will be on hand at
both of the meetings, while Earnest
F. Hughitt, '15, W. D. Cochran, '16P,
and George Sisler, '15E, will address
the yearlings, James Raynsford, '15E,
Edward Saier, '14L, and E. P. Mc-"
Queen, '15E, taking the'task of liven-
ing up the second year men. t
The student council will take only1
general supervision over the all-cam-
pus selection, to be held from 8:00 tor
1:00 o'clock on May 29 in the corridors
of University hall. The council de-<
cided not to extend their activities-at

judges of the polling and the advertis-
ing of the election.t

EAST LANSiNG, May 11.-Coach
MacklIn's men have been looking for-
ward to the Michigan game since the
opening of the Aggies' season, and;
have been bending every effort to get
into the best possible condition for the
opening game of the series with the
Wolverines tomorrow. There are
those among the Aggie supporters who
expect to see their nine romp away
with a victory over Coach Lundgren's
men, and the team itself is not lacking'
ii confidence. .
Three good reasons for the confi-
dence of the M. A. C. boys are Sprin-
ger, Weeder and Miller, the slab art-
ists for Coach Mackim. Blake Miller
won his opening game against Albion,
while Weeder has been working in
good shape, winning three out of the
four games he has pitched. The game
that counts against him is the 4 to 3
overtime session with Syracuse.
Springer has tbe best record of all
of the ,.- A. C. twirlers, having pitch-
ed the last three innings in each -of-
the last five games, prior to the Syra-
cuse contest. In addition, he worked
three innings at the beginning of the
year, making a total of 18 rounds for
the lad. h alf of the men put out in
this time have been struck out by him..
On top of this he has allowed the op-
Ionents but seven hits. Macklin has
been saving him, and he may be ex-
pected to face Michigan.'
In addition to a strong pitching staff,
M. A. C. boasts six regulars on her
team who are all clouting the ball for
an average of more than .300. In the
field the nine looks almost as well,
having an average of less than one er-
ror to a game.
With all these assets to favor them,
the Lansing rooters are putting hopes
of a victory into their caps and are
preparing to invade Ann Arbor with
their team. At least 100 rooters prob-
ibly will make the trip with the team.

industry, said, "Men soon forget the
idea that they are going to amehorate
lalbor conditions, and set out on the
highway of profits. Greed for gain
lowers the general moral." The other
causes which he gives for the failure
of ce-operation in production are bad
organihation, faulty business practic-
es, -iadequate capital reserve, lack Qf

aporeciate mianagership.
