J-Laws and Fresh Engineers Forfeit
to Architects and Fresh
Indoor baseball had an off night
yesterday when only two games were
scheduled and both turned out to be
forfeits. According to Coach Arm-
strong it was the first time that there.
were not at least fifty men out in the
gymnasium for practice if not for
regular games, undoubtedly the poor-
est showing of the season.
The J-laws forfeited to the archi-
tects and the fresh engineers failed to
appear for their game with the fresh
lits, which latter team has received a
majority of forfeits in their scheduled
contests and by far the greatest num-
ber of such victories of any team in
the league.
Owing to the way the teams slated
to meet the fresh lits fail to show lp
for games, that team is becoming
somewhat disgusted and murmurings
of discontent were overheard amongst
them last night. The principal cause
for the dissatisfaction among the first
year men seems to be that they do
not receive any practice unless they
play a scrub team, and as they hold
that the scrubs always pick out the
best batteries in the league and thus
usually force them to take the little
end of the score, they are growing
fearful that their reputation will suf-
fer and their rightful prestige decline,
a fact which no one seeing them play
would care to dispute.
A scrub game was played last night
to console the freshmen over their
latest accruing forfeit. The miscel-
laneous aggregation was composed of
men from several teams the archi-
tects being in the majority, and the
pitcher having been recruited from the
ranks of the J-engineers. He made
things rather uncomfortable for the
freshies, who were unable to touch
him up with any great ease during the
first part of the game. The scrubs'
on the contrary enjoyed their bat
rather promiscuously and distributed
the ball impartially over all localities
in the gym, and annexed four tallies
in the first inning as against their
opponents' two. However, a way was
found, to offset the preponderance of
either team at the bat. There being
no umpire convenient, each team
while at bat had one of its own men
act in that capacity, with the result
that the batting team had decidedly
the advantage, and neither could be
caught neglecting that circumstance.
Tufts' football team will stack up
against a hard proposition when it
comes to tackle its 1916 football sche-
dule, the nine-game program includ-
ing some of the strongest teams in
the country, and there being no ag-
gregations of noticeable weakness on
the slate.
The four hardest games will be-
those with Harvard, Princeton, In-
diana and Syracuse. The other con-
tests will also keep the men from
Tufts on their toes, as they meet such
strong New England teams as Worces-
ter Tech, Bowdoin; the famous Spring-
field Y. M. C. A. eleven, Boston Col-
lege, and the Massachusetts Aggies.

The schedule follows:
Sept. 30--Worcester Tech. atiMedford.
Oct. 7-Harvard at Cambridge.
Oct. 14-Princeton at Princeton.
Oct. 21-Boston College at Medford.
Oct. 28-Indiana State at Indianapolis.
Nov. 4-Massachusetts Aggies at Med-
Nov. 11.-Springfield Y. M. C. A. Col-
lege at Springfield.
Nov. 18-Bowdoin at Medford.
Nov. 25--Syracuse at Boston.

Members of Club to Qualify 'oday for
Series Against Wisconsin
and Yale.
Michigan's rifle club 'team started
off its season in the National Rifle
association yesterday afternoon with
the first qualification match to deter--
mine the make-up of the team which
will shoot in the early contests. The
men who failed to shoot in yesterday's'
trials will be expected to appear to-
Today is the last day for club mem-
bers to qualify to shoot in the big se-
ries against Wisconsin and Yale. It
is important that every member who
wishes to compete in the big matches
be on hand to shoot in the prelimin-
aries, as according to the rules of the
tournament, no one may be entered in
the finals who has not shot in the
qualification matches.
All cards must be turned in, and all
scores recorded. Those who fail to
turn in their cards will be given zero
for that score. On January 15 the
first intercollegiate match of the sea-
son will be shot off, when Michigan
meets the strong Wisconsin team. All
scores are to be turned in by the even-
ing of that day, as they must be tele-
graphed to the secretary at Washing-
top and filed by the National Rifle-as-
sociation at that time.
The 15 men in the two qualification
shoots to turn in the highest scores
will be placed on the Varsity squad,
and will compete among themselves
for the privilege of shooting in the in-
tercollegiate matches. New rifles have
arrived from Washington this year,
and for the first time it will be pos-
sible to have guns for the exclusive
use of the members of the team. On
the showing in the trials of yesterday
and todaw the rifles will be assigned
for -the use of the men.

Farrell "Iisappointed at Lack of Inter-
est Shown; Speakers Plead for
More Tryouts
Michigan's first track meeting for
the 1916 season was held last evening
with about 80 candidates present, and
for this reason was something of a
disappointment to the track authori-
ties, although no cards had been sent
out to the men who indicated that they
were interested in this sport.
Each of the speakers took the atti-
tude that there must be more material
brought out if the Maize and Blue is
to be a ranking factor in the track
world during this season and the
next. Track Manager Finkenstaedt
started the meeting with a few intro-
ductory remarks about the number of
men needed to insure success in the
spring sport, and then introduced Ath-
letic Director P. G. Bartelme, who told
those present something about the
meets that they may expect this sea-
son. Bartelme said that the competi-
tion would be practically the same as
last year, with a few indoor and out-
door dual meets, and the usual Penn
relays, with the final Eastern inter-
Following the athletic director, "Ed-
(lie" Carroll disproved the theory of
track drudgery, and emphasized the
need of confidence which the track
man must have if he is to be success-
ful, as well as the necessity of keep-
ing in the good graces of the faculty.
Coach Farrell told the men that there
was ample room and accommodations
for at least 150 men who were out for
the team, while Captain Smith, the last
speaker, told of the science in track
by saying that he regarded the sport
as being 60 per cent brains and 40
per cent physical prowess, citing sev-
eral specific instances as examples of
where the battle of grey matter had
more than offset that of mere physical
All of the speakers brought out for-r
cibly the greater importance of a num-
her of men over the few stars, as
shown in last spring's intercollegiates,
when Cornell won the big meet by a
comfortable margin with but one first
place, while Michigan had two, and
still finished fifth. They also informed
the audience of the necessity that each
man out for track dig up more can-
didates so that the team this year
might be as strong as it is possible
to make it.
For the workout yesterday after-
noon, nearly fifty men put in an ap-
pearance, more than have been out
any time before this season. The can-
didates are still taking things easy,
as the coach desires to get the men
well in shape before they are allowed
to do any hard training.

1unk; (irises 'sked to Ngn
up hi League..
From present indications it appears
that 10 or 12 teams will be listed in
this season's class hockey league. This
will include all of the classes im-
portant in the interclass football
league during the past season, and
also those more prominent in the in-
tramural sporting events.
Coach R. A. McGinnis of the Varsity
reserve football team will have charge
and supervision of the hockey league
for this season, and in order to facili-
tate arrangements, it is requested that
all class managers report to him at
the intramural office as soon as pos-
Practice has already begun at Wein-
berg's skating rink, where a hockey
pen has been constructed for the sole
use of the league teams. It will be in
daily use from 4:00 to 6:00 o'clock,
and class managers will be given
passes for the members of their team,
upon application to Coach McGinnis.
A schedule is being made and it is
planned that it will be completedby
the latter part of this week. If any
classes that wish to enter the league
have not already done so, they are
requested to notify Coach McGinnis
immediately, if they intend to play
for their numerals under the sche-
Swimmer Sets New World's Record
New York, Jan. 11.-Herbert E. Voll-
mer, crack swimmer of the New York
Athletic club, last night negotiated
150 yards in the New York A. A. tank
in 1:29 4-5, and it is said will lay
claim to a new world's record for the
distance. C. M. Daniels at present
holds the record which lie made in
England in 1908, when he completed
the distance in 1:32 2-5.
Vollmer was out for the trials for
the Metropolitan A. A. U. 100-yard

A Detroit Sunday morning paper
printed the following:
"Murphy appears to be about the
best half-miler in the Michigan
camp, despite the fact that he was
a most erratic performer last sea-
son. Murphy was switched from
quarter to half, and from half to
mile last spring so frequently that
he did not have a fair opportunity
to show his true ability at either
The above was interesting. It must
have been intensely interesting to
Murphy, especially so since he was in-
eligible last season and didn't compete
at all. Outside of this minor discrep-
ancy between facts as stated and as
they are, the paragraph was of con-
suming interest. Walter Camp seems
to have company.
Fighters never tire of telling stories
about Greek George Brown, the mid-
dleweight. Brown had more fighting

scattered around now:
Brown picked up a newspaper dur-
ing, the football season and saw a
headline which read, "Brown fears
"That's a lot of bunk," said the
fighter. "I don't even know who this
guy Yale is."
It is rumored that this story was
told down in New Haven and the only
person that laughed was a grey-haired
professor who graduated from Harvard
and who had a son at Brown.
Walter Eckersall, the man that ref-
ereed the game between Brown and
Washington State College at Pasadena
New Year's day, said that in his opin-
ion, the westerners had one of the
greatest tdms he has ever seen. Eck-
ersall declared that they looked every'
bit as good as the Cornell team, and
Eckersall's opinion is a valuable one,
for he understands football from A
to Zythum. The Washington aggre-
gation won by a 14 to 0 score, and
Brown had one of the good teams of

Michigan is now adopting an "every
man get a man" system for her track
squad because of the fact that Coach
Farrell and his cohorts had only 80
men at the meeting last night. Those
who have been peeking in at the gym
are wondering what man is going to
get Al Robinson, or whether he is not
going to be got.
Waughton to Stay at Harvard
Cambridge, Mass., Jan. 11.-Percy
Haughton will undoubtedly continue
to serve as head coach of the Harvard
eleven notwithstanding the fact that
he now has big interests in the Bos-
ton National league baseball team, was
the statement given out last night- by
Fred M. More, graduate treasurer of
athletics at Harvard. He said that as
yet no final arrangements had been
made but that it was hoped that a
plan could be arranged whereby Mr.
Haughton's duties as head coach could
be lessened without lessening his value
to the team.
