ASST.-ANAGER TRYOUTS TODAY
Active Work will be started in the
near future by Manager. Ray Mills and
his corps of assistants in preparation
for next spring's Interscholastic meet.
It is planned to make this year's meet
the largest in the history of the Michi-
gan Interscholastic,'and with that endt
in view a list of all athletically prom-
inent high schools in the country is
The date has not up to this time
been finally settled, but it is quite
probable that the event will again be
staged about the-middle of May. Def-
inite announcement of the time will
be made to the high' schools which
are selected, in the form of some spe-
The close race between La Grange
Ill., high,,school and Lewis Institute,
of Chicago, for first honors in last
year's clash, gives promise of some
interesting sessions when the two
come together again this year. The
entrance of other prominent high
schools which have not heretofore ap-
peared is sure to. furnish the La
Grangers competition of such a nature
as to keep them on the jump if they
wish to retain the leadership which
they gained last spring.
All assistant interscholastic mana-
gers are asked to meet at the offices
of the Athletic Association in the
Press Building on Maynard Street at
4:00 o'clock this afternoon, when ini-
tial plans will be outlined.
Manager Mills has also issued a call
for all sophomores in the university
who wish to try out for the position
of assistant manager. It is essential
that the second-year men who are in-
terested in the interscholastic mana-
gerships attend the Meeting in the
athletic offices this afternoon.

THE DAILY S
o Indoor Baseball
Games on Tonight
Athletes Will Be alloird to Iecuper-
ae: Three -ames Willi Be Played
In accordance with the policy of the
intramural office as followed after
holidays, namely, to allow the class
athletes time to recuperate from their
strenuous exertions of the vacation
period from the University, there will
be no indoor baseball games tonight.
It is hoped that this will give the vari-
ous managers time to get in touch
with theumembers of theiraseveral
teams, count thle missing, and lay
plans accordingly. The rest thus pro-
vided should improve the character of
the contests tomorrow* night, when'
three games will be called.
At 7:00 o'clock the J-lits will meet
the architects in the first game of the
schedule after the vacation. This game
will be followed by a battle between
the soph engineers and the senior en-
gineers, the game to be called at 7:40
o'clock. In the last period of the
night the harm ics and the J.-engineers
clash, the duel to begin at S8:20 o'clock.
MAY GET PRACTICE SEASON
FOR CLASS BASKETBALL MEN
Intramural Department to Take Steps
to Secure Gym; Ask All
Managers to Report
Steps to secure the use of Water-
man gym for the class basketball men
before the season opens will be taken
by Intramural Director Rowe,, thus
enabling the teams to get in some
preliminary practice on the evenings
on which the class indoor players are
not using the floor.
In the past no practice prior to the
announcement of the schedule has
been afforded the basketball players,
and they have had to start without
much team work having been devel-
oped. Under this new system, if it
is followed by Secretary Smith, the
Intramural office expects to have the
teams in shape two weeks earlier than
in previous years.
The playing season will probably
not begin until after the examinations
are over, bit the managers of the class
teams are asked to see Director Rowe
in the Intramural office as soon as
possible. It is expected that they will
be ;able' to start their men on the 20-
minute practice sessions in the near

SHOTI PUTTERS OUT IN
We will offer our entire stock of Clothing
The first real preparations for
Michigan's 1916 track outfit began
yesterday afternoon, when fully 30
candidates presented themselves at
Waterman gymnasium for the prelim-
inmary wvorkouts. Many athletes who
had as yet to make "their initial "con-
Ing out" for this season donned their
suits and took a light workout in the
endeavor to get the kinks out, and
shake some of the dust from their
As usual, the shot putters were out
in force, five of them working out
with the 16-pound ball, and from this
number Coach Farrell hopes to de-
velop a team of first class men. A
number of pole vaulters were also
numbered among those present dur-
ing the afternoon, and the men in
this branch took the opportunity to
try the new mat which has been com-
pleted for them.
The first meeting for track candi-
dates will be held in the west lec-
ture room of .the physics building next
Tuesday evening. While as yet the
program for the evening has not been
announced, it is hoped to secure sev-
eral good speakers for the evening's

Perhaps one of the funniest sights
that we've seen since returning from
a Merry Christmas and Happy New
Year, thank you, was the spectacle of
a youn man industriously unpacking
a trunk which hadn't moved since be
packed it two weeks ago.
A certain junior engineer who ad-
mits that he lives in Cleveland, pains-
takingly packed his things on the
Tuesday that the university closed,
and then promptly forgot to send the
trunk. This slight oversight meant
that the wardrobe on his back was
about all that was immediately avail-
able, although we understand that
there are a few haberdashery stores
even in Cleveland.
Anyway, the young roan in question
saved himself express charges and he
probably gleaned lots of valuable in-
formation regarding the highly scien-
tific art of packing.
Anyway, that game with Washing-
ton University sounds impressive, and
when we beat them someone may con-
fuse it with the University of Wash-
ington or Washington state and Michi-
gan may acquire a real reputation---
