Webber Responsible For Series of In-
vestigations and Disclosures
of Last: Spring
The organization of a nation-wide
association of college men aiming at
the abolition of the present summer
baseball rule and at the general puri-
fication of intercollegiate athletics,
was brought to light here last night
upon the return of Charles Webber

ers in the baseball scandal that re-
suited in the suspension of several)
members of the Michigan nine last
spring. This drastic action by the
Wolverine authorities led to a series'
of investigations at other institutions
that has resulted in a series oi expo-
sures at several of the leading uni-
versites of te country. ...

The baseball question is but one of

A group of men interested in the
baseball question, and others of a
similar nature, met in the east this
fall and determined upon the nature
of the new organization. Already
Michigan, Harvard, Dartmouth, De-
Pauw, Trinity, Syracuse, and Illinois
are represented, and the membership
is increasing at such a rapid rate that
the originators of the movement are
confident that every college and uni-
versity of any standing in the country
will be represented.
The platform of the newly formed
association includes three main
points (1) The purification of inter-
collegiate athletics of the fraud and
hypocrisy that now exists; (2) the ex-
tension of the intramural departments
pf all educational institutions until
every able-bodied man can participate
in some form of outdoor sport ;(3)
the subordination of money-making to
the educational side of intercollegiate
It is the plan of the association to
agitate reforms along the lines indi-
cated at every institution represented
in its membership, the various mem-
bers always urging their platforms in
relation to the local situation.
The first official action of the asso-
ciation was embodied in a letter sent
tP the Harvard-Yale-Princeton eligi-
blity committee which is now meet-
ing in New York City. In this letter,
the history of recent baseball scan-
dals was reviewed. together with other
information that has not appeared in
print, The association expressed its
opinion as favoring the abolition of
the present summer baseball rule.
While the committee has not yet made.
a public report, the unofficial attitude
of that body is in favor of allowing
college athletes to play summer base-
ball under the direction of the proper

Regular hockey practice will begin
the first week after the holidays, and
all aspirants for class teams are
ur, ed to start with the beginning of
the season. The early opening of the
season is planned in order to get the
benefit of all the good skating weath-
er possible.
Whether Weinberg's Coliseum will
be the place of practice or not is a
question with the Intramural office.
In former years the games were all
held there but owing to the difficulty
of securing convenient hours for
practice, it is possible that Ferry
Field may be used. The usual hours
allowed for practice at the coliseum
were from 6:00 to 7:30 o'clock, which
is too awkward a time for the men to
co:ne out and work. In case better
arrangements cannot be made, Intra-
mural Director Rowe said yesterday
that it was quite likely that Ferry
Field would be flooded and used for
the purpose. He said further that if
the same difficulty is anticipated for
next year, that the three additional
tennis courts necessary for the com-
pletion of the planned court, would
be constructed so that a permanent
court would be acquired for the uni-

Ifembers of Faculty Talk in Cleveland
Mrs. S. F. Gingerich, assistant pro-
fessor of English, and Mr. H. J. Wei-
gand, instructor in German, two mem-
bers of the ichigan faculty; will read
papers at the meeting of the Modern
Language association of America,
which will be held in Cleveland on
December 29-30. Mr. Gingerich will
have as his subject, "The Religion of
Coleridge from 1794 to 1798," while
Mr. Weigand will speak on "The Re-
lations of Matthew Arnold to Heine
and Renan,"

Recital of the history of
Michigan's past football season
will undoubtedly undergo con-
stant repetition during the
Christmas vacation. You may
be asked, "What is the matter
with Michigan Athletics ?" Re-
gardless of what other personal
opinions you may have, one
fact is evident-Michigan has
not been getting the athletes
from the prep schools.
When you are home you will
have an opportunity to come
into personal touch with men
who are destined to make
names for themselves in collegi-
ate athletics. The chance will
be yours to use legitimate in-
fluence to bring these men to
Michigan. If you have at heart
Michigan's athletic prestige,
every good, clean youth of ath-
letic ability with whom you
come In contact will hear of
Michigan's right for considera-
tion as his Alma Mater for her
worth, both scholastically and
athletically. Let's pull for fu-
ture Michigan teams!

If things continue, the only respect-
able thing for a Varsity athlete to do
after he graduates, will be to retire
or enter the ministry.

team enjoyed an unusually successful
year. One of their important vic-

coached by Campbell, a Harvard man

Hughitt's team triumphed by a
score of 23 to 13, and it was a ques-

'Wisconsin Football Produces Revenue
