'Army Feels Loss
of/Harry Tuthill
West Point Suffers Severe Setback
When trainer Decides to
Come to Michigan
New York, Feb. 23.-West Point suf-
ters a distinct loss in the retirement of
Harry Tuthill, the trainer, who has
beep signed to train the University of-
Miebigan eleven. He was a great
trainer, as has been evidenced by the
condition of the Army teams in the
jour years.of his administration. When
Tuthill first came to the military acad-'
emy there were certain non-athletic!
officers who did. not believe that cadet
teams needed to be specially trained
for football.
"They are always in condition," ex-
postulaicd one of these to Tuthill.
"I am not good at arguing, major,"
Tuthill replied, "but I merely ask you
to order that bunch of cadets there
to run around the parade ground as
fast as they can.
The officer complied, and when the
cadets arrived at the starting point,
Tuthill said to them: "Now you fel-
lows whistle." All tried, but not one
of them could make a sound.. The
major, hardly necessary to say, was
Here is what Capt. Daniel Sulton,
the academy football representative,
says of the trainer in his annual re-
port: "Mr. Harry Tuthill was in
.charge of the training of the team. His
work was entirely satisfactory, as was
evidenced by the splendid physical
condition of the members of the team
in their championship game."
The opening for Tuthill came be-
cause Steve Farrell, Michigan's ath-
letic director, asked to be relieved of
the duty of training the football men

Book Weet With Notre Dame Saturday
at South Bend; About Twenty
Will Make .Tril
Michigan's 1916 track team stacks
up against its first competition for
the season on Saturday evening, when
the Maize and Blue representatives
are scheduled to tac e the Notre Dame
outfit at South Be .
Not only will this be the curtain
raiser for the Varsity, but it will also
give those at the head of the cinder
sport a line on just what may be ex-
pected from a team which has been
seriously crippled by the loss of sev-
eral of its stars due to ineligibility.
About twenty men will probably
make the trip tot he Indiana city, with
those selected leaving Saturday morn-
ing over the Michigan Central. The
list of the fortunate ones has not as
yet been fully decided upon, but will
be given out this afternoon.
Illinois defeated the Catholic outfit
rather handily last week, with several
of the events below the par which the
Varsity have been doing of late. For
this reason, and the fact that Michi-
gan badly trounced the Catholic in-
stitution's best last year, the dope fqr
this year seems to run in favor of
a continuance of the same stunt.
Waterbury is at present the only
candidate who will be unable to make
the trip. The high jumper's injured
foot is still in a condition which will
allow him to do no jumping.
New York, Feb. 23.-Smoky Joe
Wood, whose fine pitching gave the
Boston Red Sox the American league
pennant in 1912 and who figured prom-
inently in the world's series with the
Giants that year, will be let out in the
near future, according to reports here.
President Lannin of the Red Sox
has asked for waivers on Wood with
the idea of selling him to one of the
majors or sending him back to the
In 1912, Wood won 35 games out of
a total of 39 in which he worked.
Later he suffered an attack of appen-
dicitis and pitched only 22 games in
1913. Last year Wood showed some
improvement, and won 14 games. But
at that, according to Lannin, he is
not in the same class with Shore, Ruth,
Leonard, and Foster, the Red Sox
pitching quartet.

Fresh lit basketball men have found
a new outlet for their surplus ener-
gies and a convenient aggregation to
oppose as well as an additional place'
for practice, to wit, the Ann Arbor
High School team with its court.
The fresh lits defeated the high
school boys by a 20-15 score in the
high school gym:
The game was not so one-sided as
the score implies, and the younger
men pushed the freshmen all through
the contest, the yearlings being un-
used to playing together and just be-
ginning to get into shape. Despite
the fact that the first year men were
heavier and numbered three All-Fresh,
football men in their lineup, their
lack of teamwork and the cohesion
of their opponents forced them to fight
all the way.
Wyman, of last fall's All-Fresh foot-
ball squad, played the center position
for the freshmen and with his weight
and height easily had the advantage
over his opponent. He placed the
ball almost at will and scored two
field goals in addition. Cook and
Yoakum were the forwards for the
yearlings, the former scoring three
field goals and the latter two such and
two fouls. Hanish, one of Coach
Douglass' backfield stars of last fall,
is playing guard for the first year lits
and not only proved himself a terror
on the floor but annexed a field goal
during the progress of the game.

Berkeley, Cal., Feb. 23.-D. E. Falck,

that an invitation to participate in the
