Michigan's track meeting for all men
in the university who are interested
in this particular branch of Varsity
sports will be heldbTuesday evening
at 7 :00 o'clock in the west, lecture
room of the physics building.
This meeting will be held primarily
for the purpose of bringing together
as many men, including freshmen, as
have any intentions of going out for
the spring sport. There will be sev-
eral speakers on hand who will en-
deavor to instill enthusiasm into those
present and a large turnout is ex-

s ispite os the fact that Tennesset
scored3113 points to- their opponents
total of 48, the southernors suffered
four defeats on their eight game
schedule, and feel that the season has
been far from successful. Miller
Pontius put the Yost method of
coaching into practice in the south-
ern college this year, and as was in-
dicated in those few games in which
the greatest number of his regulars
were not out of commission, "Brute"
might have got away with it in good
stylenif injuries had not spoiled the


Three Games Booked for First
Following Holiday


The ANN ARBOR SAVINGS BANK, Organized 1869, Has to Offer as
An Intimate Knowledge of the Demands of the Community Has Been -Gained


Although Monday ha. been set as
the day for the first call tor aspirants,
yesterday again saw a goodly number
of condidates present for a workout.
Several of the men who seem likely
for places on the team have yet to
make their season's debut, including
A. S. Robinson, last year's freshman
captain, and star quarter-miler. Pole
vaulters still are lacking in numbers,
notwithstanding the fact that no real
prospect has as yet been discovered
in this department, due to the absence
of "Bo" Wilson, last year's star man
with the long stick.

Tennessee started the year by beat-
ing Carson-Newman in a shut-out,
running up a total of 101 points, in
the season's curtain raiser. Tuscu-
lum gave Tennessee a harder fight
for the honors i the second game,
and held Pontius' team to a 21 to 0.
score. The season's first defeat came
at the 'hands of Clemson, which insti-
tution pushed over a field goal while
Tennessee was unable to score, the
final count being 3 to 0.
Tennessee came back in the next
game, beating Centre College by an
80 to 0 score, in the next to the last
victory of the season. The last game
that Pontius won with his eleven was
the clash with. the Cumberland ma-
chine, walking away with the long
end of a 101 to 0 score.
Three defeats finished the season,
Vanderbilt, Mississippi Agricultural
and Mechanical College and Kentucky
being the elevens to humble Tennes-
see. Vanderbilt administered the
most severe defeat of the season, beat-
ing Tennessee in a 35 to 0 game. Mis-
sissippi scored 14 points, and held
the team coached by Pontius scoreless
in the next to the last game of the
Tennessee and Kentucky clashed
in the final game of the season, and
were evenly matched, but Tennessee
suffered from the fact that several of
her regulars were out of the game,'
and in spite of the fact that the game
looked like an even bet, Kentucky

Three games will be played by
teams in the class* indoor baseball
league in Waterman gymnasium to-
night. The contests are at 7:00 o'clock,
7:40 o'clock, and 8:20 o'clock respec-
tively, the J-lits and the architects
mixing it in the first 'period, followed
by a clash within the engineering de-
partment between the seniors and
sophs. The pharmics and the J-en-
gineers will finish up the night's
schedule when they oppose one an-
other on the floor at 8:20 o'clock.
According to all appearances the
architects have the odds over the J-
lits for honors in the first game. The
lits have been getting the short end
of the scores in previous games and
have showed up rather weak at the
bat in almost all their contests. Kes-
ler seems to be about the only man
on the team who can be depended
upon for hits. On the other
hand the architects are pretty strong
with the stick, and have a good bat-
tery combination in Davenport and
Cameron. The architects have made
a good average in games won and lost
and the lits have a correspondingly
poor one.
A good game should result from
the senior-soph engineer fracas dur-
ing the second period of time in the
gym. The seniors are expected to
win, however, as they have one of
the strongest aggregations in the
league and have as yet failed to lose
a single game. They are berhaps the
hardlest hitting crew among the class
teams and the most feared when at
bat. They hold the record for stay-
ing at bat the longest period of time
of any other team during a regular
game. Trelfa has more homers to
his credit than any other individual
in the league. The sophs have a good
team but they have not played the
high class game the seniors have been
exhibiting all season.
Both the pharmics and the J-en-
gineers are about evenly matched and
a fast game ought to be the outcdme
of their meeting. They played consis-
tent ball before the holidays began
and rank about the same, all things
considered. The engineers are for-
midable opponents for any team in
the league to face, and will undoubt-l
edly cause the pharmics no little
trouble before the evening is over.1
The druggists are nearly as strong as
their prospective opponents and the
engineers will by no means have
things entirely their own way. l

coach of the University of Nebraska
football team during the past season,
who recently signed a contract to
coach the Indiana University team
during the coming fall, announced
last night that he would not take
'Dick' Rutherford, his star half back
of the past season with him as assist-

Rutherford's contract annulled.
The action of Stiehm is said to be
the outcome of criticism aroused by

If Illinois schedules some football

strengthened, and she will undoubt-
