Mark Which Sophomore Registered
Gives Him Third Place Among
Title Holders
V. H. Simmons, '18, yesterday aft-
ernoon hung up a new season's ree-
ord in high jumping when he aston-
ished the 100 or more spectators at
the gymnasium by clearing the bar
at the measured height of 5:11 7-8. The
bar was at an even six feet by the
scale on the side poles, but upon meas-
uring the leap from the middle of the
bar, it was found that "Vic" had clear-
ed one-eighth inch under the six-foot
mark. Simmons, by the mark which
he made yesterday, put himself num-
ber three in the high pumpers in the
history of Michigan athletes. The pres-
ent record is held by W. E. Sargent,
with a leap of 6 feet 1 1-4 inches,
which he made in 1913.
The mark which the sophomore made
yesterday places Simmons in the list
of men who may be expected to gather
the coveted points in future meets,
and inasmuch as he has developed
rapidly during the short time that the
track athletes have been out, there
is reason to believe that the tall lad
has not reached his maximum. The
record for the season which was shat-
tered by the leap was held by Sim-
mons and Griest at 5'feet 9 inches.
A good turnout of men was realized
during the afternoon, and "Steve" took
advantage of the balmy spring weather
to send al tthe runners out of doors
on the new oval, where it is easier to
run. A large number of the candidates
who were among those present at the
impromptu roll call were freshmen,
who donned their suits in order that
they might stretch their legs in prep-
aration for the All-Freshman meet this
With Five Consistent Bowlers on Its
Team the J-Lits Have Chance
to Repeat 1915 Victory
With five good bowlers rolling regu-
larly, the junior lits made a runaway
of the qualifying round of the class
bowling league by taking every
scheduled match. The senior dents
were close behind with only one match
lost, while the junior engineers and
junior dents tied for third place. The
soph lits finished just ahead of the two
freshman teams in the lit and engi-
neering departments;
The four high teams in the quali-
fication round will roll in the cham-
pionship round, which will consist of
one match each Monday night for
nine weeks, making three rounds in
On form the junior lits should re-
peat their victory of last year, and
for the first time win the class league
championship for two seasons. How-
ever, the two dent teams are danger-
ous, and the senior engineers are now
rolling strong.

E. M. Hanavan, who is at present in
the employ of the Maxwell Motor com-
pany of Detroit, and who holds the
Michigan record in the mile run, was
out in a suit over in the gymnasium
Thursday afternoon, taking a work-
out, and renewing old acquaintances.
"Eddie" made the record in 1911, when
he stepped off the mile in the time
of 4:21 2-5.
Soph Engineers Still Being Eligible,
Are Permitted to Re-Enter
There will be no basketball prac-
tice until after the examinations are
all over according to Intramural Di-
rector Rowe. In his own words the
reason was that "We have too much
indoor baseball interest." This is
largely due to the fact that another
team has been entered in the schedule.
The soph engineers were unintention-
ally overlooked when the last schedule
was made out and since they have,
never forfeited the two games which
are cause for expulsion from the league
they have been duly installed on the
official slate.
However this means that there are
six teamsnonrthe schedule at present
and that more games will have to be
played in order to determine the
campus championship. In order that
these games may be played, off within
the next two weeks it was decided
by the Intramural office that there
would be no basketball practice held
tonight in Waterman gym Regular
indoor baseball games will be played
instead. The schedule for tonight fol-
lows: 7:00 o'clock, pharmics vs. fresh
lits; 7:40 o'clock, senior engineers
vs. the soph engineers; 8:20 o'clock, J-
engineers vs. architects. The schedule
may run through until next Saturday
but it is hoped that all the games will
be finished by next Thursday and the
Catimpus championship decided.
It would appear that the senior en-
gineers are coming in for some un-
expected trouncings lately. Last night
the J-engineers walloped their superi-
ors by a 6-2 score. The senior bridge
builders were at one time the strongest
team in the league but they lost their
star pitcher, Des Jardins, and since
then have not been keeping up their
former pace. They have been super-
ceded by the pharmics who have as yet
lost none of their games on the pres-
ent existing chart of scraps. Even the
fresh lits are becoming dangerous or
else a large sized enigma. They have
a percentage equalling that of the
pharmics but they tied a game which
is disregarded in doping out the per-
centages of the various teams. Last
Thursday they welcomed the newcom-
ers-the soph engineers-by walloping
that aggregation by a 19-2 score. Their
tied game was with the senior engi-
neers, which is a pardonable split.
Another team which is proving morp
of a disappointment than was at first
expected is the architect combination.
They have lost both of thefr last
games and in spite of the fact that
they have a good pitcher they insist
on extending poor support. At pres-
ent they are down with the soph engi-
neers trying to heat the cellar.
A recoup was indulged in by the J
engineers in their last game with the
seniors and they are now in the run-
ning for the honors. However their

chances depend upon whether the
pharmics lose or not, and from pres-
ent indications it would not appear
that he latter are very anxious to
drop any of their engagements.
Following is the relative standing of
the teams now playing in the league.
It is to be understood that this stand-
ing began with the last schedule and
,fi' continue until the end of the
season. In case of tied games these
games are dropped from the reckoning.

Together With Ufer and Other Strong
Track Men, Possibilities
Loom High
With "Cap" Murphy back working
for the track team, Michigan's chances
in the middle distance runs seem much
better than they were last year, for
Ufer is still on hand and he will have
the Dutchman for a running mate.
Last year Ufer was the mainstay in
the 880-yard event, although "Eddie"
Carroll doubled up and ran the half
with Ufer on several occasions.
This year Ufer will probably find
Murphy running with him, and "Cap's"
showing two years ago indicates that
Michigan will be well fortified in the
half, for Murphy has run under two
minutes and should show even better
this spring than he did two years ago.
"Red" Donnelly and George Fox are
also capable men over this route, al-
though both are better milers. Michi-
gan could turn out a very creditable
two-mile relay team with these men
to select from.
Murphy and iUfer are also good quar-
ter milers, and could be switched to
this event if the occasion arose. This
will probably be unnecessary, though,
for if "Al" Robinson comes through as
his showing last spring indicates he
should, Michigan will have a 440-man
that can step under 50 seconds almost
eve'y time out if he ispushed. While
still running in prep school, "Al" was
clocked in 48 3-5 on one occasion,
and even "Phil" Jansen and "Hap"
Haf couldn't better this mark.
Robinson suffered from rheumatism
last spring and was prevented from
taking part in the M. A. C.-A-Fresh
meet, but he seems in good shape
this fall. Robinson really ran but one
race on Ferry Field last spring and
that was in the Varsity meet when he
romped home head of Farrell's Var-
sity performers in 49 3-5.
Huntington and Fontana were both
new at 440 last year and a year's ex-
perience should aid them greatly.
Max Robinson will probably run the
low hurdles this year instead of the
440. Max has plenty of speed but he
will have to conquer the stride and
form necessary over the low sticks.
Dean Victor C. Vaughan, of the
medical school, has been appointed
a member of the committee to award
the prize of $1,000 offered by the
Metropolitan Life Insurance company
of New York for the best 3500 word
essay on sex hygiene. Another com-
mittee has eliminated all but 50, and
the final decision will be made as
soon as posisble. The papers are at
present in the hands of Dean Vaughan.

Newv York, N. Y., Jan. 21.-Howard
P. Drew, the crack sprinter of the
University of Southern California, and
holder of the world's record of 9'1-5
seconds for the 100-yard dash, arrived
here yesterday from Los Angeles for
the special race in the seventy-yard
event at the Milrose A. A. games next
Wednesday night.
Drew will run against the winner
of the national championships at San
Francisco, Joe Loomis, of the Chi-
cago A. A. Loomis has already de-
feated the colored sprinter, in the na-
tional events, and although Drew
holds the world's record, he can not
be said to be the champion. His show-
ing against Loomis; Morse, the na-
tion champion for the 220-yard dash,
and Stephenson, wil be watched with
a greater interest than merely for the
victory, as there has been a rumor
afloat that the speed of the colored
champ has considerably diminished
since an injury to his knee some time
ago. It is said for this reason, he
failed, to show well in the national
championships and although he is
still held by all as a great runner,
many believe that the accident slowed
him up.

Cinder Aspirants to Stage One
Series of Saturday Meets
Th~lis Afternoon




Candidates for Michigan's 1916 All-
Fresh cinder outfit will stage the sec-
ond of their series of Saturday after-
noon track meets this afternoon at
2:30 o'clock sharp in Waterman gym.
The meet will include all of the ev-
ents which the athletes will have in
their itinerary of track sports for this
season, and will be handled in prac-
tically the same manner as the one
of last week. A field of 150 men is
booked to appear for the various
branches of the cinder sport, and of
these it is expected that at least 60
will line up for the starting gun of.
the 35-yard dash..
All this week the new men have
shown up in force in preparation for
the second meet, and although some
good marks were hung up in the ini-
tial coming out of the freshmen, the
marks put up last Saturday are ex-
pected to be bettered in several of the
events. A number of candidates who
were not out last week, have signified
their intention of showing up tomor-
row, and several of this number have
excellent prep school records behind

Strictly speaking, the Sportoscope
should have passed out of existencel
with yesterday's Daily.
The Sportoscope editor was igno-
miniously shot 'in the back while inr
the pursuit of duty, according to the
military issue of the Gargoyle whichl
made its appearance yesterday noon.
(Nope, this isn't an adv.)
A daring and courageous war-lad
has fearlessly crept up to within 20
paces of our unprotected back and
even the fatal bullet is graphically de-
picted in its deadly flight.
Our farewell thoughts seem to have
been of "Dear Put;" at least these
words are issuing from the typewriter
-a silent tribute of devotion.
We disliked to die-even for the
Gargoyle-which perhaps is an elo-
quent expression of our purely per-
sonal and selfish desires 'for further
But we note with infinite relief that
we did not die alone!
The Gargoyle editor seemed destined
to accompany us!

There he stands on his hind legs,
suspiciously (or knowingly) sniffing
of the contents of the keg upon which
we are seated. Bearing down upon
him from behind is a spirited, charg-
ing courser. His end seems inevitable!
But, alas! Such are the immutable
laws of Fate!
The Gargoyle editor apparently is
bent upon securing a drink, surely a
reprehensible act upon the field of
battle, but he should not be judged
too severely. Perhaps our war re-
ports drove him to drink. Again; per-
haps he mistakes us for a nut. (Hor-
rible thought!)
However, even in death, there re-
mains one consolation which can be
shared alike by the Gargoyle boss and
the Sportoscope editor. Our demise
comes in the best book that the Gar-
goyle has issued this year.
Death should be glorious in such
flattering surroundings!
Would that we could die again!
One life is too few to offer for such
a cause.
