Men Show Excellent Marksmanship in
Last Match; Will Now Try for
Place in Class "A"
Had not MacNaughton of the Var-
sity rifle team slipped up in his final
frame in the shoot against the Missis-
sippi Aggies yesterday, Michigan
would now hold the high score title in
class "B", but as it was, they suc-
ceeded in tying for high score. Re-
ports from the farmer team have not
yet been received, but dopesters have
already given the match to Michigan,
since it will take some mighty fine
marksmanship to top this tally.
It was due to hard luck, more than
anything, that "Mac" fell down, and
the shooting of the team as a whole
was remarkably consistent. The men
have been practicing hard for this
match, and now that the champion-
ship of class "B" is practically as-
sured for the Maize and Blue, they
are putting forth every effort to land
a place in class "A". As a result of
yesterday's fine score on the part of
the Michigan gunmen, Michigan now
heads class "B" by a total of 23 points,
Notre Dame being the next high con-
tender for this honor.

The entire track team will be handi-
capped throughout the meet by the
fact that they will be compelled to
wear spiked shoes 'and to stage their
performances upon the dirt, all the
events taking place on regular earth.
This fact alone will probably separate
Michigan from several counters.
Carroll will encounter a fast man
when he toes the mark in the mile run
with Waage, the South Bend star.
Waage last Saturday finished a close
second in the meet with Illinois. The
time was 4 minutes 31 seconds for
this event, which is many seconds
faster than 'Les' has been clocked this
year. McDonough won the 880-yard
against the .Orangemen in 2 minutes
2 3-5 seconds, which goes to prove
the Ufer and Murphy will have no easy
time in their specialty.
Edgrefz, of the Catholic school, also
made a very creditable showing last
week in the pole vault, going over the
bar at only three inches under the 12-
foot mark, and as Clark is the onl
Varsity entrant in this *event, the In-
diana school promises to score heav-
ily in this part of the contest. An
other man who is expected to -prove
a big factor for Notre Dame is "Dutch"
Bergman. Bergman is a jast man
in the sprint, and also is a handy man
to have around when the time for the
shot put is announced. The contest
between him and Cross is sure to be
one of the features of the meet.
"Pat" Smith, whose ineligibility was
reported, will be able to- compete this
year, contrary to reports, since his
name was passed on favorably by the
eligibility committee at its last meeting.
Two Big Eastern Contests Scheduled
for Same Day Next Season; Big
Crowds Expected
The probability that the Harvard-
Yale and Army-Navy games may be
played on the same day next autumn
is likely to develop an interesting test
of the sport's popularity in the east.
According to the present plans, the
service game will be played at the
Polo Grounds in New York gn Satur-
day, November 25. On the same day
at New Haven, less than a hundred
miles away, Yale and Harvard are
scheduled to meet in their annual
gridiron battle.
The Yalenbowl, with temporary seats
placed along the wall-top concourse,
can accommodate more than 70,00
spectators, and there is not the slight-
est doubt that every seat will be occu-
pied. At the Polo Grounds, more
than 50,000 spectators can be accon.-
modated, so that if both games draw
full capacity, 120,000 spectators will
witness the play. To these figures
.rust be added another 40,000 or 50,-
000 who will attend minor college or
scholastic contests within a radius of
a hundred miles.
In the past, thousands of football
enthusiasts have attended both the
Yale-Harvard and Army-Navy games
when they were played on succeeding
Saturdays. Special trains have carried
crowds from New York and Boston
annually to the big college- classic at
Cambridge. With a spectacular coun-
ter-attraction, such as the Annapolis-
West Point contest, on the same day,
it will be interesting to see from what
sections the two. big events will draw.
In the case of the university game,
virtually all the 70,000 seats are sold
at two dollars each, giving a revenue

alitchell had him warm up a short
time today, with Dick Harte receiv-
ing. Mitchell and Mahan are well3
acquainted and the Harvard coach
has already seen the crack Crimson
athlete in action, as he pitched,
against the Boston Braves last April.I
Today also marked the first ap-1
pearance of Dick Harte, the varsity1
backstop. Harte last year played
hockey in the winter, with the result
that he reported in too fine a condi-
tion after training through a long
season. This year this versatile
athlete forsook the ice for the gridironl
where he starred as a regular end on
the varsity eleven. Like Mahan, he
is fresh from a long rest and in prop-l
er condition to go through the lengthy
baseball term.
Director Rowe Disappointed at Small
Number of Men Out for
Relay Teams
Interclass track is languishing for
want of interest and candidates, Intra-
mural Director Rowe said yesterday
that during the past week and more
it has been his belief that not more
than a half dozen men had been out to
work for either the interclass meet orl
for any of the relay teams. He seemed
rather disgusted .at the lack of en-
thusiasm and pep which the classest
are exhibiting and especially the poor
showing which the managers are mak-
ing. It would seem from Director
Rowe's authority that the managers
are not getting their men out, and
what is worse, are never in the gym
themselves, all of which augurs ill
for the success of the season.
The four high relay teams receivel
their numerals, a fact which warrants
more interest and push than is being
expended at present. Mr. Rowe fur-
tier remarked that it would behoove
the classes to show some pep and turn
out for some of these teams if they
expect the full measure of reward
from the Intramural office. He was
quite emphatic in all his statements
a ad intimated that the classes would
have to show something tangible in
the near future before any schedule
would be made out or any real com-
petition started.
Although the exact date has not
been set, it is probable that the inter-
class smeet willbe staged next Satur-
(lay or sonme time while the Varsity
is away. Class athletes should note
this prospect and should get in shape.
Smallpox Ends Albion Basketball
Albion, Feb. 24.-All of the remain-
ing games of the basketball schedule
of Albion College, eight in number,
have been concelled by the athletic
board of control because of the great
demoralization of the schedule'by the
smallpox epidemic here: Albion was
third in the M. I. A. A. basketball
race, which will now be decided by

East Lansing, Mich., Feb. 24.-With
the scheduling of the West Virginia
Wesleyan eleven to play the Michigan
Aggies here November 11. hopes that
Coach Macklin might send his men
against some strong eastern eleven
next fall have faded. Macklin ex-
plained his reason for not scheduling
an eastern game by saying that the
colleges on the other side of the Alle-
ghanny mountains have refused suffi-
cient guarantees to make the trip a
financial success. As football is de-
pended on mainly to support Aggie
athletics, the financial consideration
influences to a considerable extent
the scheduling of games.

Dispatches from Dallas, Texas, state
that the two greatest track stars in
the Lone Star state are booked forf
Michigan when they complete their
"prep" school education.
Michigan athletic, authorities know
absolutely nothing about the two boys
in question, which shows that the re-
port has originated solely in Texas.
This speaks well for the probable
authenticity of the story, since it un-
questionably started with the lads
Both are now attending school in
Dallas at the Hardin high. Tom
Lemon, who is at present the more
prominent of the two young athletes,
broke the Texas interscholastic record
for the broad jump recently when he
leaped 23 feet. A week later he cleared
22 feet 8 inches, jumping from a
muddy take-off.
When one considers that there isn't
a single broad jumper in the University
of Michigan who can jump 22 feet
consistently, and not one who even
claims to have cleared 23 feet at any
time, a fair' estimate can be gathered

of Lemon's abilit. Lemon is also a
sprinter and has been credited with
10 seconds flat in the 100-yard dash.
He is but 18 years old, and shows won-
derful promise of developing, for he is
a comparative novice at track work
and has been working with the spiked
shoes for only a little over a year.
Charles Roberson, a team-mate of
Lemon's, is credited with two minutes
flat for the half mile and in addition
to his work on the cinders, Roberson
is a star baseball player and an ex-
cellent basketball man.
Dallas dispatches assert that al-
though it is some time since Texas
has produced a collegiate track not-
able, nevertheless when these two
boys enter college, the Lone Star state
bids fair to attract considerable atten-
tion in the big show.
Since Eby's failure to enter Michi-
gan, the rooters are leary of advance
notices, as Eby's inability to come
was governed by something beyond his
own control. At the same time, both
Lemon and Roberson are now fig-
uring on enrolling at Michigan when
they graduate from high school.
