FOR IRST HNRS
Six More Games Will be Played
Indoor Baseball League
SOPH LITS LOSE BOTH GAMES
Six more indoor baseball games
will be played before the holidays
break into the season. The games will
be played tonight and Saturday night
at the usual periods, three games each
evening. Two teams have been drop-,
ped from the schedule on account of
two forfeits each. the J-medics and
the fresh laws. These two teams fail-
ed to show up for two games each on
the last schedule, and a similar rule
will be enforced during the remainder
of the season. The standing of the re-
spective class teams to date has been
mapped out by the Intramural office.
The team ranking follows:
Senior Engineers ... 2
Junior Engineers... 2
Fresh Lits,...... . . 2
Junior Lits .. .....1
Soph Engineers... 1
Fresh Laws.......... 0
According to this chart
engineers, the J-engineers and the
fresh lits are tied for first place, with
two games won by each and none lost.
Six teams have won one and lost one.
Two teams forfeited both of their
games while the soph lit aggregation
is the only team in the league which
has lost both games outright and it is
the undisputed holder of the cellar
Although the entire schedule for the
season has been arranged by the In-
tramural office, the following 'games
will be played before the Christmas
holidays: Tonight, at 7:00 o'clock,'
architects vs., soph lits; at 7:40 o'clock
soph engineers vs. J-engineers; at
8:20 o'clock, J-lits vs. fresh lits. On
Saturday, December 18, these games
will be called: 7:00 o'clock, archi-
tects vs. fresh engineers; at 7:40
o'clock, pharmics vs. senior engineers;
at 8:20 o'clock, J-laws vs. soph engi-
Intramural Director Rowe said yes-
terday that it is possible, if not prob-
able, that a three-game series will be
played at the end of the season for
the indoor championship. Whether
the high teams will receive numerals
is not yet known.

New Haven, Conn., Dec. '15.-Harry
Legore, the former Yale star on the
gridiron and diamond, is said to have
received at least six offers from dif-
ferent major league teams to join
their ranks. LeGore, however, says
that he will finish his college course
before he signs any contracts.

All cross-dountry men chosen to
compete in meets of collegiate calibre,
will, in the future, be allowed to wear
on their track shirts a blue "M" witb
the "C-C-C" and arrow. This step
taken by the Board of Directors yes-
terday needs but the sanction of the
upper board of the Athletic associa-
tion in order to be adopted.
It was also provided that the mem-
bers of a team winning the M. A. C.
meet and those of a team placing in
the Eastern Intercollegiate meet, shall
be awarded a track shirt and a low-
cut jersey bearing the above insignia.
In case the action is approved, the
three members of this year's team
which won at East Lansing will re-
ceive the new form of jersey.
Two additional assistant inter-col-
lege managers, L. C. Heustis and ..
W. Thomas, were choen to fill va-
Petitions from the senior lits, soph
lits and fresh dents, requesting extra
numerals for this year's football
teams, were denied by the board. It
is hoped that by holding down the
classes to the number of numerals
granted them by regulation, much can
be accomplished toward the solving
of the too-prevalent numeral situation
which now exists on the campus.

GRIEST TIES OWN 'MARK
IN HIGH JUMP CONTEST'
A spirant For Track Team Cie ors Bar
at 5 Feet 9 Inches For
Further competition in the high
jump yesterday afternoon resulted in
Griest tying the season's record in
this department of track with a leap
of 5 feet 9 inches. This mark was es-
tablished several days ago by Griest
himself, and on the next day Simmons
joined the select class.. Inasmuch as
this mark has been reached by Griest
before, he gives every indication of
developing into a most promising can-
didate in clearing the cross-bar.
Those candidates who are out for,
the pole vault are confronted 'with
something of a handicap in their ef-
forts to get some real practice with
the stick, as at present there is no
mat in the gym suitable for a nice
soft landing for the men as they come
down from their elevated position.
However Coach Farrell has promised
that a new mat will be in readiness
right after the holidays so that aspir-
ants may get down to real work as
soon as schools opens aguin.
In future all cars stop at Goodyear's
Drug Store. t1

THE DAILY SPORTOSCOPE
"THE PLOT THICKENS"
The recent baseball complications
in the Big Nine will be followed with
considerable interest by Michigan stu-
dents and alumni.
When the senate of the University
of Illinois promptly vetoed the move-
ment to abolish baseball in the Big
Nine, difficulties arose, and the final
settlement of the controversy may
possibly see Illinois withdrawing from
the Big Nine.
This action is unlikely. for it would-
seem,an ill-advised move for the Big
Nine to permit Illinois to slip away,
but when all is said and done, trying
to puzzle out the next move of the
Big Nine is a hazardous proposition
at best. ThE surest system is to fig-,
ure out the logical procedure and then
assume that the contrary will pre-
But for the recent action taken by
Illinois, conference baseball would
be abolished now. The prompt and
decisive step taken by Illinois, how-
ever, effectually checked further pro-.
ceedings, at least until the end of the
1916 baseball seasomi.
Conference ruling., are such that an
objection by a single institution is
sufficient to defer farther action until
the end of the year, and since Illinois
balked, the question was automatically
tabled until next June.
Although nothing definite can be
learned, it was understood that all of
the Big Nine delegates had been in-
structed how to vote, which means
that apparently they were unanimous-
ly in favor of the abolition of base-
ball. If this be the case, and if Illi-
nois maintains her present stand in
the matter, along about next June
I the Big Nine may be known as the
Feeling in Illinois is strong on the
subject, and the campus seems to be
united in backing the senate in its
present stand. Talk of dropping out
of the Big Nine has been heard, al-
though the trend of opinion seems to
favor this radical step only as a last
resort. The conference board in Illi-
nois is approximately as popular as
it is here in Ann Arbor, Mich., and
that is saying considerable in a sin-
Illinois has won the western base-
ball title 10 times in the last 16 years,
and tied for first honors on one of the
other occasions. In fact they seem
to experience about as much difficulty
in disposing of their western. oppon-
ents on the diamond as the University
of Michigan used to on the gridiron.
Should Illinois withdraw, it is a
pretty safe conclusion that her first
step would be to get in touch with
Michigan. In the meantime, the final
settlemdnt of the question will arouse
considerable interest here in Michi-
gan, and further movements will be
watched with interest.
