f Two to One Odds
Them in Numbers

~,T j


With 85 candidates, two-thirds of
them first year men, entered for the
annual fresh-soph cinder meet this1
afternoon, everything is in readiness
for the starting gun of the opening
athletic clash between the two classes
in all-campus sports.
While there are a number of second1
year men who did not apply their sig-
natures to the entry sheet who are"
capable of adding their quota of points
to the total of the 1918 men, yet the
sophomores .are not in the least dis-
coura.ged over the fact that the new
men will outnumber them 2 to 1
throughout the meet. Ineligibility has
made its ravages felt in the ranks of
the sophs as well, cutting off many
points that would otherwise have been
theirs practically before the meet was
under way.
As usual the largest number of men
signed up is for the short sprint across
the gym floor, the freshmen entering
15 for this event,' while seven second
year men have put their names upon
the sheet. Entries for the other num-
bers on today's program are equally
dividild 'wept is the 40-yard hurdles,
where the name of Warner alone rep-
resents the second year men.
The meet should develjp some hot
competition for the honors in almost
every event with the exception of the
shot pit and bigb jump, which are al-
re:4dy practically conceded to the
wearers of the red and white toque.
Firs-, second and third place men
will receive points in each of the
events excePt tho relay. Varsity track
men will be in charge of the meet.

ernoon, Captain Labadie announced
yesterday that today's baseball prac-
tice would be staged in the gym in thet
morning at 10:00 o'clock.

far and that he believed Michigan,

graduation last June.-

ably, be the lastP before Coach Lund-

baseball coach is expected Monday

was 98i, while all the team with the
exception of one came within the 190

Fresh-Mophi Affair to Be fHeld This
Afternoon Will Be Only Chance
to See Indoor Meet
While no definite announcement of
this year's track schedule has been t
made by the athletic association, it is
generally understood that no inter-:
collegiate meets will be held in Wat-
erman gymnasium this year. This
condition is asserted to be due to the
fact that the attendance at meets in
the gym is limited to 500, which is3
practically only one-twelfth of the
student body.
tI has been utterly impossible to
devise a system whereby the 3000 to
5000 stud4nts who have wanted . to
attend the best meets could be admit-
ted with acommodations for only 500,'
and a great deal of dissatisfaction has
resulted on the campus among those
who have been so unfortunate as
to fail to be numbered among the
lucky ones. The athletic association
has doubtless been prompted by this
state of affairs to entirely eliminate
intercollegiate indoor track meets at
The Fresh-Soph meet which is to be
held in Waterman gymnasium at 2:30
o'clock this afternoon will be the only
opportunity of the student body to ob-
serve an indoor track meet. The clash
this afternoon is entirely a class af-
fair, but both the first and- second
year men have the material to make
things interesting for their opponents.
Inasmuch as this is to be the only
home indoor meet, it has been decided
to permit members of all classes on
the campus to attend, up to the 500
limit. Quite a number of tickets still
remain at the athletic office for this
event, and may be obtained up to 12:00
o'clock today in exchange for athletic
coupon No. 1L. In case the 500 limit
has not been reached at the start of
the meet, athletic books will admit at
the gymnasium this afternoon.
