New Football Trainer Makes Flying
Trip to Scene of Future
Athletic Activities
Michigan's new football trainer, Har-
ry Tuthill, paid a flying visit to Ann
Arbor yesterday and, in company with
Judge J. 0. Murfin of Detroit and Di-
rector P. G. Bartelme, looked over Fer-
ry Field and the gymnasiums.
Tuthill, who has a breezy, pleasing
personality, was well impressed with
the Wolverine athletic plant. He ex-
pressed his satisfaction not only at be-
ing connected with a much larger in-
stitution than he was at West Point,
but also over the fact that the field of
his new labors is so close to his home
in Detroit. The spring training trip
with the Detroit Tiger baseball team
takes him away from home during three
months of the spring and being away
during most of the summer months
makes quite a long period of absence
from his family. Tuthill said that last
year when away practically nine months
of the year, including the fall season at
West Point, he became so much of a
stranger that an old dog which he had
always possessed didn't even recognize
him and tried to protect the family
threshold at his appearance.
Tuthill had some interesting tales to
relate in connection with his five sea-
sons' work at West Point.
"You may think Ann Arbor is rather
a slow town," he said, "but it is a reg-
ular metropolis compared to West
Point. You have movies and theatres
and such means of diversion, but down
there its just like a big jail.
"We only had twenty minutes a day
to practice football there. That may
seem hardly possible to you, but we
figured it up, and from the first of
September until the end of the football
season, we had just 6o hours in which
to develop a team. The men always
showed lots of fight, though, and very
rarely called upon the trainer to look
them over unless they had a brolien
finger or couldn't walk from a sprained
ankle. Another thing that makes it
easy for the trainer there is the fact
that discipline is drilled right into the
men as a part of their school work.
Every man on the football squad at the
beginning of the season signs a pledge
that he will not smoke or drink, or eat
anything prohibited by the trainer. We
carried four full teams throughout the
season, and had 6o men on the training
Tuthill is very enthusiastic over his
new work and is anxious to see next
fall come around. He expressed the
thjought that Michigan is due for a big
come-back next year in the football
world, and that he wanted to do all in
his power so far as the office of trainer
permits, in having a share in her suc-
Headquarters for Winter Sports of
the World Transferred From
St. Moritz to Hanover.
Hanover, N. H., Jai. 22.-Announce-
ment has been made by the Dartmouth
Outing Club, of the sixth annual win-
ter carnival, to be held here February
o, ii, and 12. It is planned to eclipse
all former carnivals this year, since
Hanover will be the world center for
winter sports, and it has been agreed
to transfer all the events usually held
in Switzerland, to the college up in the
Green Mountains. On account of the
war, the headquarters for the winter

sports of the world has been transfer-
red from St. Moritz to Hanover.
nvitations have been issued to all the
large. colleges in the country, and in an-
ticipation of their attendance, an elab-
orate program has been arranged: There
will be an international hockey game
between the Dartmouth team and one
of the big Canadian claimants to the

Dominion honors, and during the stay
of the snow sportsmen, the Dartmouth
varsity will meet Yale in basketball.
Concerts, dinners, and dances have
been arranged under the auspices of
the outing club, and all visitors will be
considered guests of the club during
their stay in Hanover, the only expense
being the' fare to and from Hanover.
Secretary Bell announces that all col-
lege men who are interested in attend-
ing the carnival should address him for
more detailed information, at Box 291,
Hanover, N. H.
Pharmics' Victories Point Toward
Championship; Kirchgessner
and Ankenbrandt Star
Three more indoor baseball games
were played last night in Waterman
gym. In the frst game the pharmics
overwhelmed the fresh lits by a 15-o
score, the first shutout of this round.
The senior engineers then proceeded to
wallop the soph engineers by the some-
what decisive count of 22-6. Lastly the
J-engineers won from the architects,
score 3-2, in the closest game of the
series, the victory altogether due to
the good sportsmanship of the archi-
tects. In the last inning of the game
the score was tied 2-2 and time was
called, giving the architects the option
of continuing the game or stopping and
having the score revert back to the in-
ning before, which they declined to do
and on the next play the engineers
drove in the winning run.
It becomes more apparent every night
of play that the pharmics are rounding
into championship form. They had an
easy victory last night when they de-
feated the fresh lits an kept the first
year men from getting a single run.
Kirchgessner pitched his usual consist-
ent game and the freshmen were un-
able to find his delivery for anything at
all. Kirchgessner is looking like the
most dangerous twirler in the league
and althogh he did not have to extend
himself he whiffed out six men. The
pharmics are becoming boastful of their
catcher, Ankenbrandt, and he is deserv-
ing of all the credit he gets. He is
probably the best catcher in the league
with the possible exception of Trelfa.
Both of these men are strong with the
stick and get more than their share of
the clouts.
Another easy win was allotted to the
senior engineers when they mixed with
the soph engineers. The seniors sprang
a surprise when they reversed their bat-
teries and Primeau walked into the
box and Trelfa resumed his old posi-
tion behind the plate. Van Brunt did
the pitching for the sophs and although
apparently easy for the senior sluggers
almost redeemed himself by his good
fielding. More than once he grabbed
the ball and threw the runner out at
first, and he did good work with the
bat. Goldberg and Van Brunt were the
only two men on the soph team who
could connect with the pill or run the
bases with any success. Primeau was
a little wild but had some speed and
backed up by Trelfa's ba'ckstopping had
no trouble with opponents that would
cause serious worry. Trelfa did not
fail once in all his turns at the bat to
slam the ball.
In the last period the J-engineers and
the architects clashed in a hot duel.
Both teams reversed their batteries,
Shea pitched for the engineers while
Anderson did the catching, and Cam-
eron hurled for the architects while his
predecessor, Davenport, worked behind
the plate. In spite of its being his first
try at the pitching job this season, Cam-

eron was a puzzle to the juniors and
neither team was able to score until the
third inning. Shea hurled a great game
and struck out six men, while Cameron
retired 5 -by the same route. Both
teams gave excellent support:
