nual indoor meet-
a, to be held Sat-
York city. The
letic authorities yesterday afternoon
just after the trials for the different
events had been completed. In all,
14 track men will make the trip to
New York, accompanied by the coach
and Track Manager Finkenstaedt.
The trials which were run off for
these events--the 2-lap, 6-lap races
and the shot put -took place yester-
day afternoon in the gymnasium. The
five successful hoisters who will show
at Madison Square Garden are Cross,
Smith, Walls, Edwards and Leach. The
average which they hung up in the
tryout was better than the mark of
40 feet 2 1-2 inches made by the win-
ning team in this event last year. For
this reason, if the lead ball crew sep-
arates itself from the ball as well as
it did yesterday, the possibility of
Michigan finishing at the top in this
event is bright.
Carroll, Ufer, Donnelly, and Fox
will compose the team for the 6-lap
run around the Garden track, with
Murphy going along as substitute in
both this event and the shorter race.
Of the quartet to represent the Var-
sity in th~e 1056 yard race, the first
three mentioned made the fastest time.
For the 2-lap trip around the New
York track, the team will consist of
Captain Smith, Griest, Hardell, and
Fontanna, with Murphy as the un-
derstudy for the event. Griest sur-
prished those in charge of the trials
by making faster time than did his
The athletes, with the coach and
manager, will leave on Friday after-
noon at 2:42 o'clock over the Michi-
gan Central. They are scheduled to
arrive in Gotham the following morn-
ing, and will return to Ann Arbor on
The coach is making no prediction
of just how his men will come out
in the meet. With the best colleges
in the east among these, and a large
field entered in every event the win-
ning team must hang up a high mark.
The meet to be held on Saturday is
different from the general track meets.
Teanr events make up every event on
the program, of which there, are 12
scheduled to be run off during the
progress of the evening. This meth-
od takes away some of the ability of
one man to amass points for his
team, making the team, and not the
individual responsible for the outcome
of the meet.'
On their form of last year, and the
number of men which they have enter-
ed, Cornell should take the meet. In
the entry list they have nearly twice as
many men entered as their nearest
The managers of the various schools
belonging to the I. C. A. A. A. A. are

17-Year Student Wins Fordham "F"
New York, N. Y., Mar. 1.-The honor
of being the first Fordham University
student to be awarded the Varsity "F"
without playing on one of the major
sport teams fell to Elliot Binzen, a
17-year-old sophomore. Binzen won
the national junior tennis title recently
in the tournament in the SeventhRegi-
ment armory. In order to give the
"F" it was necessary to amend the
athletic constitution by a majority of
the student members. The amendment
was adopted unanimously. Since Bin-
zen's victory, Fordham has received
tennis challenges from over 30 colleges
and a schedule of 16 matches is now
being arranged. Fordham may meet

Some High Kicker
Bartelme's Assistant Hoists Foot High
Enough to Break or Make
John Edmunds, commonly known as
"Jack," who is taking Geo. Moe's place
as assistant to Mr. Bartelme in the
athletic office, claims that he is some
high kicker. This doesn't mean that
Edmunds is going into the chorus
girl business or that he is a tryout
for the Michigan Union opera, but he
makes his assertion from a purely
Edmunds only stretches the tape to
six feet seven inches in his stockings,
so his diminutive size may easily be
imagined. On a bet the other day,
John hoisted .one of his feet into the
atmosphere to the height of seven feet
four inches, which he claims beats the
world's record for a standing kick,
and as far as any figures we have been
able to find, this is quite true. Pro-

FRESHN TEAMSIN BOTH
BSKET BAL CONTESTS
Senior La.ws Fall Before YearlingBar-
risters and Fresh Lits
Two class basketball games were
played last night, the senior laws go-
ing down to defeat before the yearling
barristers,, 22-11, and the fresh lits
lowning the J-lits in a prolonged and
rather mixed up affair, the final score
balancing in favor of the freshmen,
21-4. The third game on the schedule,
to ahave been played between the
pharmica and the soph lits, went to
the latter by forfeit.
In the game between the laws, the
freshmen apparently had no trouble
with their opponents whatever, and led
all the way. Baxter, center for the
fresh team, easily carried off the in-
dividual honors of the game, scoring
eight field goals and tossing in two
baskets on fouls, totalling 18 points.
Melaniphy and Rowan did the heavy
work for the seniors, the two making
up the forward division of the team.
A regular family quarrel took place
when the J-lits met their yearling
brothers in what was the first game of
the season for both teams, each hav-
ing taken one by the forfeit method.
When the dust finally cleared away, the
juniors found themselves trounced, 21
Perhaps the failure of the pharmics
to show up made the soph lits too sure
of tliemselves, for in a practice game
with the architect five,'they were best-
ed by an 8 to 21 score. Hewlett; for-
Ward for the architects, played rings
around the literary men, making most
of the points for his side Miller of
the sophs played the whole game for
Today's games are as follows:

The list of candidates for shortstop
has increased considerably, although
this department still is the goal of the
fewest number of men that are trying
out. This is probably due to a con-
siderable extent to the fact that Bran-
dell, last year's regular shortstop, is
back again this season, although there
is some doubt now as to whether
he will play there or in the outfield.
Fielding practice will probably be
staged again today, although the coach

LITS ARE VICTORIOUS
IN/ FINAL_ HOCKEY GAME
Strong Defensive Work by Senior-Ju-
nior Lits, Aided by Easton's
Goal, Wins Championship
Strong defensive work coupled with
a goal by Easton, won the campus"
hockey championship for the combined
senior-junior lit seven in the final
game of the season at Weinberg's
indoor rink yesterday afternoon. By
winning the championship game over
the soph engineers by a 1 to 0 score
the lits established the record of go-
ing through the necessity without
once being scored upon.
The lits had a strong combination
in Barnum, Cohen and Easton. Bar-
:ium gave so much confidence to the
team by his goal tending ability that
the lits played a game which carried
the war into the engineering terri-
tory all the time. Cohen's play cov-
ered the whole rink, and was a model
exhibition of how to handle the posi-
tion of rover, his feeding to Easton
making the lit's single score possible.
The score came in the first half
when, after three shots at the engi-
neers' goal, the lits chalked up their
counter. All through the game, in
spite of the playing of the sophomore
stars, Kitto and Weston, the play hov-
eher around the goal tended by Rye.
Only three shots were made at the lit
goal, and each of these was blocked
by Barnum, the resurrected goal ten-
