Bartelme, Farrell, Rowe and Smith
Will Address Michigan Varsty's
Initial Gathering
All preparations for tonight's big
track meeting have -been completed,
and everything is now ready for the
entertainment of the monster crowd
of Michigan's athletes which is ex-
pected to be present at the West Phy-
sics lecture hall at 7:00 o'clock.
Four speakers have been secured for
the occasion in order to instill the
proper spirit into the men. The first
of these .is P. G. Bartelme, athletic di-
rector, who will open the firing guns
by giving Michigan men an idea of
what kind of opposition they may be
expected to have this coming spring
in both indoor and outside meets. Bar-
telme will be followed by Coach
"Steve" Farrell. "Steve" will prob-
ably emphasize the importance of a
large list of condidates for the differ-
ent entries. In addition, he is expected
to make a strong plea for the digging
up of material from the freshman
class in order to put in the field a
strong All-Fresh aggregation of track
athletes, inasmuch as up to the present
hour the new class has not brought
out any prospective Smiths, or other
Following the coach, Intramural Di-
rector Rowe will talk upon the value
of the interclass athlete to the track
teams of the future. The last of the
four speakers, Captain Smith, will no
doubtsemphasize the need of a large
entry list in different events, due to
the scarcity of stars this season.

Yearlinig Indoor~ Runners to Pry Lid
of Waternian Season
Because ot the absence ofany in-
dividual stars in, the present fresh-
man class, the track authorities have
decided to hold a track meet for all
freshmen next Saturday afteronon in
Waterman gymnasium. The first event
will begin promptly at 2:30 o'clock.
The entire list of track and field events
will be held in order that every
branch of track sports may be ac-
Wherever necessary, preliminary
heats will be staged, and in these in-
stances the best time of the competi-
tors will be taken into consideration.
The events will be run off just as
quickly as possible, but because of the
fact that some of the candidates will
desire to enter more than one event,
it will be impossible to run off the
events simultaneously.
This idea was first tried out two
years ago with excellent results, and
because of practically the same condi-
tions now as then, the authorities
it best that the same thing be tried
again. It is hoped that all freshmen
and, first year men in the university
who are interested in track work be
present. Instructors and Varsity track
athletes will be present to instruct all
those who may want any help, in or-
der that the meet may be a success.
Those in charge of the meeting wish
it distinctly understood that freshmen,
and other men, even if they have no
intention of coming out for the Var-
sity this season, are invited for the
entertainment, providing they wish to
attend, and they hope that everyone
interested in this year's or future
teams will be among those on hand.
More than 40 candidates were out

HihSchool Football lien Will lie
Guests of "Al" Club
Members of the "M" club are plan-
ning to hold a football dinner at the
Union next Friday evening. In ad-
dition to the squad of football men who
are working out in the gymnasium
during the winter season, it is also
planned to invite various prep school
athletes throughout the state.
A personal meeting between the "M"
men of Michigan and those fellows in
the state who have gained a reputa-
tion in prep school football, will do
much to interest those men in Michi-
gan and in Michigan athletics. Let-
ters of invitation to the prominent high
school athletes have been sent out by
Captain Maulbetsch, and among those
men who are expected to be present'
are ex-Captain Straw, and Captain Cul-
ver of the Detroit Central team, Hen-
drian of Detroit Central, Whitmarsh of
D. U. S., and Wilkinson of Jackson.
The dinner will be in the nature of
an informal get-together, and after-
dinner speeches will be placed under
the ban. It is probable, however, that
Director Bartelme will have something
to say, and there is a possibility that
"Jimmy" Craig will be on deck for
the meeting, and will have some con-
tributions on the athletic standing and
athletic conditions of Michigan.
yesterday in answer to the first call
which has been sent out. Several of
the men who had as yet to make their
season's coming out, put in an ap-
pearance, among the newcomers be-
ing Captain Carroll of the C. C. C.
team. "Eddie" has been resting up
since the end of the strenuous cross-
country season, but yesterday saw him
running on the outdoor track.

Another week's schedule for the in-
door baseball league was issued by
the Intromural office yesterday. The
same rules relating to the former
slates will apply to this last chart,
especially the provision applying to
forfeitures, that is, that any team for-
feting two games will be dropped from
the league. One change in the sched-
ule results from the dropping out of
the J-lits, who forfeited two games on
the last round.
The lits apparently had a streak of!
.d luck. They lost steadily, yet to
all appearances had a good team, and
played a hard, conscientious game, but
they were slated to meet some of the
hardest teams in the league from the
first, when their aggregation was not
in the best condition. to play. the top
The schedule for tonight is as fol-
lows: 7:00 o'clock, J-laws vs. archi-
tects; 7:40 o'clock, fresh lits vs. fresh
engineers. The soph engineers were
to have played the J-lits, but as the
latter team is no longer in the league
that game had to drop, although that
does not mean that the soph engineers
will receive a forfeit. Since the whole
of the schedule has been made out
and filed it could not very conveniently
have been rearranged to substitute an-
other game in its place, and the night's
slate will be moved up a notch in-
stead, and there. will be only two
games instead of the usual three.
The J-laws are somewhat young in
the league as yet and the two first
year teams have been receiving so
many forfeitsthat they have furnished
no opportunities for estimates on their
relative strength. The architects-have
a good team, and should give the laws
a hard rub, but the latter may be
stronger than is understood and a
reversal of dope is possible. However,
the laws have never exhibited any
tremendous strength as a scoring ma-
chine and the architects ought to win
their game.
Palo Alto, Cal., Jan. 10.-Leland
Stanford is planning to send a team
of 12 men east next summer for com-
petition in the intercollegiate track
and field meets at Philadelphia. There
will also be a dual meet with either
Yale or Harvard.
This is the first time that Stanford
has ever sent a team of track men to
the east. The reason is said to be be-
cause of the excellent material present
this year, and because of the success
that the Westerners had in the inter-
collegiate regatta at Poughkeepsie last

J-Laws Meet Architects and
Lits Battle Fresh


Four Veterans and Six New Men Make
Prospects Particularly Bright
for Runners
Although it is rather early in the
season to indulge in any serious pro-
phecies, still Michigan's chances for a
crackerjack four-mile relay team seem
All four of last year's men are back,
and Coach Farrell has a half dozen
new comers on hand, among which
number at least a couple look partic-
ularly good.
Last year's four-mile team was prob-
ably the greatest that Michigan has
ever had, despite the fact that they
did not win this event at the Pennsyl-
vania or Drake relay races. Wiscon-
sin, their conqueror at the Drake
games, was defeated later in the sea-
son, and one of the chief ambitions
of this year's aggregation will lie to
secure revenge upon Cornell.
Carroll, Fox, Donnelly and Ufer are
all on hand, the first three mentioned
working with the cross-country team
this last fall. Prominent among the
new men is Murphy, the half-miler on
the 1914 track squad. Murphy was
ineligible last season, but he is avail-
able this year, and "Cap" is going to
run a pretty fast mile before the sea-
son is over.
In "Eddie" Carroll, Michigan has
one of the best college milers in Amer-
ica. Carroll finished third last year
in the eastern intercollegiates, barely
five yards behind McKenzie, the
Princeton man who won the event.
Carroll's added experience should
make him one of the fastest men in
the country at this distance, and the
Wolverines are assured of a whirlwind
man to run the last lap.
Fox, Ufer and Donnelly are counted
upon to shave a few seconds off their
last year's marks, and with the com-
petition provided by the new men, the
Maize and Blue .should develop an ex-
cellent quartet. It will not be sur-
prising to see one and perhaps even
two of the new candidates winning a
berth on the team, although if all
four of last year's men show marked
improvement, the 1915 team may stand
"Eddie" Carroll ought to run close
to 4:20 this year, and with the other
three men averaging close to 4:30, the
Michigan team may run under 19:00
minutes. The squad fell . but a few
seconds short of this last season, and
with a year's added experience and
improvement, the Wolverine's oppo-
nents are going to find a big task on
their hands when they stack up against-
the Michigan squad.
Samuel Appointed Home Secretary
London, Jan. 10.-Postmaster-gen-
eral Herbert Samuel has been appoint-
ed home secretary in succession to
Sir John Simon, who resigned.


In speaking of the J-Hop the Michi-
gan Daily says:
"The orchestra and band will then.
alternate, each playing for every other
dance during the 30 on the program."
By the time a few extras have been
inserted for good measure, J-Hoppers;
will find themselves confronted by a
regular evening marathon. We won-
der whether this fellow "Eddie" Mack
ever stopped to consider that there
actually are a few students in col-]
lage after all who didn't work out
with the cross-country team this fall.'
Jack Johnson wants to return to
America, and has written to United
States District Attorney Charles F.
Clyne with this in view. Mr. Clyne
replied that if Johnson came back the
"law would have to take its course,"
which probably means "Jack" would1
go o jail. And now some cruel-hearted
person suggests that he'd rather see
Johnson at liberty in Europe than ino
jail in America, since there aren't so

many stray bullets filling the atmos-
phere within the walls of our bastiles
as there are out in the open in Europe.
The University of Kansas has placed.
football upon the compulsory list. This
action seems strange when it is con-
sidered that in many places the sport
is barred altogether.
The late Tom Shevlin rushed back to
New York on November 20 last,
immediately after the close of the
Harvard-Yale football game. That he
did not take the defeat to heart so
much as many would think is indicat-
ed by the following story, which is
vouched for as authentic: On a train
a Princeton man and an -old friend
of Tom's, said to him: "Why is it that
you team could beat Princeton and
then fall down so hard against Har-
vard ?" And Shevlin replied : "That's
easy. It's impossible to make two lem-
onades out of one lemon."-New York



Syracuse, N. Y., Jan. 10.-In the
track schedule for the coming season
which has just been given out, Michi-
gan will be met at Ann Arbor in an
outdoor meet on Saturday, May 13.
Other outdoor struggles which assure
the Orange and\ Black of a strenuous
season are the Penn relays, a dual
meet at Pittsburgh, and the I. Q. A.
A. A. A. meet on May 26 and 27. The
last named meet is as yet undecided.
Oregon "Ag" Coach Goes to Nebraska
Lincoln, Neb., Jan. 10.-Dr. E. J.
Stewart, for the past four years coach
of the Oregon Aggies, will coach the
Nebraska Cornhuskers next year, it
was announced today. Doctor Stewart
gained considerable fame when his
team beat the Michigan Aggies last
season. He succeeds E. O. Stiehm,
who becomes physical director at the
University of Indiana. Stewart's sal-
ary for the season is said to be $3,000.
Despair of uerta's Recovery
El Paso, Tex., Jan. 10.-Slight hope
for the recovery of eneral Victoriana
Huerta remained tonight when his
physician stated the patient was grad-
ually losing strength and that his ill-
ness had reached a critical stage.
Part of Krupp Works at Essen Burns
Amsterdam, Jan. 10.-The wheel
