Competition for places in the seven-
teenth annual interscholastic meet, to
be held Friday and Saturday at Ferry
field, will be exceedingly keen, if the
number of men entered can be used
as a criterion.
About 200 men have signed entry
blanks. Nearly every large school in
lower Michigan, and many prep schools
outside of the state have entered men.
Lansing, which won the first inter-
scholastic meet ever staged at Michi-
gan, has the largest entry list, with a
total of 21 men.
. University High, of Chicago, which
has won the meet for "the past two
years, has entered 14 men for the com-
ing meet, in an effort to capture first'
place again. Lewis Institute, always
a strong contender, has entered only
eight men this year.,

about 50.

will be awarded as first prize, with,
suitable cups for second and third

Entries will be received at the office
of the athletic association, beginning
Monday of next week. From now util
the date of the meet, all men who ex
pect to enter the events will be coach-a
ed by Intramural Director Rowe. Lock-
ers will be assigned at Ferry field for

Letters have been sent out to all
fraternities in the city, asking for their
co-operation in helping to make this
meet a success, so that it may be re-

The Pgntathlon is a revival of the
ancient athletic carnivals which were
held by the Greeks, and was first
introduced int9 the modern sport
world at the Stockholm Olympic games
in 1912. Instead of the pole vault, the
ancients competed in the javlin throw,
and the discuss throw took the place
of the shot put. James Thorpe, the
famous Indian athlete, won the event
at the Stockholm Olympic, and with
it the title of all-round athletic cham-
pion of the world. The Pentathlon is
a feature of the annual relay races
held each year at Philadelphia, and
was captured this year by Berry of
Pennsylvania.

Love Set from Smoky

-PJTTS3CltG, PA., May 18.-Michi-
gan's tennis tew won every match
from Carnegie Tech'ical Institute here
today. The Wolverines were forced to
fight for every game, hov 'ver, and
'four of the matches went three- "ets1
before the winner was decided.-

Captain Reindel won his first match
in singles on the eastern trip when he
beat Steen in a hard fought battle, the
second set of which went against the
Michigan captain. Reindel proved to
have more staying power than the
Tech man, and he took the last set,
6-0,. The first set went to Reindel,
6-3.
Crawford beat Davis in another
three set contest. The first set 'in this
match went to the Pittsburg man.
Mack, of Michigan, won a love set from
Bihlman in their match. Switzer had
the easiest time of the Michigan men,
as he took his match in straight sets,
one of them without letting the Pitts-

be assisted by the audience.
Madame Ober made her debi
Stettin seven years ago, but her
American appearance was in Novex
1913, when she appeared in New
as "Ortrud." Press and public
unanimous in hailing her as an a
of the first order. The deep im:
sion which she made on this occ
was strengthened by her subsec
appearances as "Brangaene," "La'
"Amneris" and especially as "(
vian" in "Der Rosenkavalier."
The New York Times says of
dame Ober: "She is young, her v

Reindel and Crawford won from
Steen and Davis in the doubles, and
Switzer and Mack took the measure
of Bihlman and English. The scores
of the first contest show in a measure
its closeness. The Institute players
won the first set, 6-4, and the othersf
went to Michigan, 6-2, 6-4. In 'the
last match, the first set went to deuce
before the Michigan men emerged vic-
torious, and the next also came their
way, 6-4.
