Entries for Yearly Track Affair Come
in Slowly; Meet Open to
All Underclassmen
Entries for the annual fresh-soph
track meet, which is scheduled to take
place at Waterman gym at 2:30 Sat-
urday, will close tomorrow night, and
if the classes of 1918 and 1919 ex-
pect to make a showing in their inter-
class meet which can be compared
with the former fresh-soph dual con-
tests the entries must pour in faster
than they have so far.
The meet is open to any men who
wish to compete, the only requirement
bein that they be members of one of
the competing classes, and that their
entry be in before the appointed time.
The entry sheet is posted in Doctor
May's office at the gym, and names
may be signed at any time. No trials
will be held except in the 440-yard
dash, the 880-yard run and the mile
run. A new feature in the form of
a class relay between two teams of
four men each, each man running
two laps, will be introduced, and try-
outs may run their qualification trips
around the track after they have made
arrangements for timing with Coach
In addition to the relay race, which
has been newly introduced on the pro-
gram this year, the afternoon's sched-
ule will include the following events:
35-yard dash, 40-yard high hurdles,
440-yard dash, 880-yard run, mile run,
shot put, high Jump, and pole vault.
Only ten men will be allowed to run
in the quarter, half and mile runs,
five men being chosen from each class.
The freshman have not yet produced
a man who can heave the shot past
the 33-foot mark, and with Edwards,
Smith, Walls and Boyd in this event
the sophomores, slould make a clean
sweep. Simmons in the high jump
for the sophs will meet his best op-
position in Haigh of the freshmen.
In the pole vault, Wong for the
freshmen and Clark for the sophs
threaten the best fight, the work of
the Oriental having shown distinct
class in his appearances at the gym
of late. Denee, Galloway and Mee-
han of the soph contingent of- milers
will have a stiff proposition in Fuess
of the yearlings.
Not more than three of the soph
stars have signed the card as yet,
and unless they show more interest
the competition will go largely to the
freshmen by forfeit if the meet is not
called off on account of the failure
of the sophomores to put a team on
the gym floor.

'Track Star of Last Y'ear's Fresh
Stiuad Fails in His Studies
"Al" Robinson, the star of the fresh-
man track agregtion of last year,
and one of the men on whom Coach
Farrell was depending for a good
part of Michigan's points during the
coming season, will be ineligible for
intercollegiate competition this year
on account of deficient scholarship.
Robinson's best work on the track
was done in 1913, when at the Penn
State Interscholastic meet on May 2
he was timed as running the 100-yard
dash in 9 4-5 seconds and the 220-
yard dash in 20 4-5 seconds. Since
entering Michigan he has been trained
in the quarter mile and has shown
promise of being the sensation of all
Michigan -track men in that event.
Robinson made his first appearance
in Ann Arbor when he and Goelitz ran
for Keewatin in the Michigan Inter-
scholastic meet of 1914. In the fol-
lowing year he entered the university
and immediately began to win his way
into the graces of "Steve" Farrell by
his performances on the freshman
Athletic Board of Directors Meets
Today to Prepare for
T. Hawley Tapping, newly elected
president of the Board of Directors
of the Athletic Association, has called
a meeting o'f that body for 4:30 o'clock
today in the athletic offices.
Among other business to be trans-
acted, will be the selection of the men
who will be candidates for athletic of-
fices to be filled at an election to be
held next week. From the three as-
sistant football managers, two men
will be chosen, on the basis of their
ability and effort put forth up to this
time, to run for football manager.
Eight men will be selected from the
present tryouts to run for assistant
football manager, four being elected.
The new office of intercollege mana-
ger will be filled for the first time at
,next week's election. Only two assist-
ant intercollege managers will be
elected, however, as the number of
candidates for these positions is un-
usually small.
Undergraduates Married in Detroit

February 8 in Detroit, at the home of
the bride's cousin, Mr. James Bart-
lett. Among the Ann Arbor guests
were Miss Frances Way, '17, Christian
Mack, '16, T. Hawley Tapping, '16L,
