UFER EQUALS TRACK RECORD
Led by Cross, Carroll, Donnelly,
Corbin and Fontana, the 1917 class
won the annual Michigan outdoor
Varsity track meet yesterday after-
noon. The juniors amassed 48 points,
while their senior rivals were able
to pile up only 31 1-2 of the counters.
The sophomores breezed through the,
meet in surprising fashion, and fin-
ished only one point in the rear of
the 1916 men.
Ufer tied the Ferry field record in
the half mile when he nosed out "Cap"
Murphy by a scant three yards in a
race which was fast from the gun.
The time was 1 minute, 57 3-5 seconds,
which was first established by Phil
Jansen in 1913. Fox, the freshman
captain, ran a pretty race in this
event, and finished under the two-
Carroll had things all his own way
in the mile, finally ending the distance'
when he timers had clicked off 4 min-
utes 24 3-5 seconds. Donnelly came
through the two-mile distance in good
fashion, while "Hal" Smith took firsts
in both the 100 and 220-yard dashes.
Fontana and Griest had a pretty bat-
tle the first half of the 440 event, Fon-
tana then going ahead, with Fox, of
the Varsity, nosing out the senior in
the last hundred yards. Cross hurled
the discus over 130 feet.

"What is the matter with Michigan
spirit?" That is the question which is
worrying the football coaches as well
as the athletic authorities. This ques-
tion has assumed serious proportions
during the last weeks of the spring
training season in view of the way
the candidates for next fall's eleven
are coming out for practice.
The coaches, all of them, and the
athletic authorities are thoroughly dis-
gusted with the way the men have
failed to come out to work all season.
The problem has grown especially
since Line Coach Pontius has been in
charge of the squad.
With about 6,000 students enrolled
in the university, the average turn-
out for regular practice lately has
been a little over nine men, while
Princeton, by way of contrast, with
only about 1,200 enrolled, has had an
average of 80 men out regularly and
has had almost three weeks of ftrim-
Syracuse Has Big Turnout
Syracuse has had an average, of
between 60 and 65 men out; Harvard
has been complaining because only 24
men have been coming out, and yet
this is almost three times as many
men as Michigan is furnishing for the
Although about 55 men have signed
up for lockers for the spring season,
yet not quite of fifth of these men
have been reporting with any regu-
To determine the cause of this
shameful exhibition, the coaches and
the athletic office are investigating
the matter. It is their unanimous
opinion that one of the most potent
factors in keeping the men away from
the field is the present dance craze.
Men who are numbered on the squad
claim that they have not time for prac-
tice, yet some of these same men, to
the definite knowledge of the athletic
authorities and coaches, find time to
attend as many as three dances in one
The exact cause of the delinquencies
in coming out cannot be found, but
whatever the cause may be, it is as-
sured that the authorities are serious-
ly angered by the lack of spirit.
Teach Fundamentals in Spring
Both Coach Pontius and Mr. Bartel-
me have stated that they are con-
vinced that the chief cause of the poor
season of 1915 was almost altogeth-
er due to the ailure of the men to
get out and work.
All the coaches state that it would
mean just one month of hard work
saved next fall if the men would come
out now. The football season affords
only about eight weeks of work, and
the fall term should be devoted to the
development of the team as a fighting

This passion-throbbing film, with all its depth of love, and soft, sweet
tropical beauty and fienish jealousy, is the greatest production since "The
Birth of a Nation."
Its flights of sweet romance are higher; its depths of dastardly intrigue
are blacker-its action and its risks and its dangers more overwhelming.

machine, and to be able to devote the
time to this end, the men must be
taught the fundamentals in the spring.
This is what the coaches want to do,
but they are handicapped by the poor
spirit of the men themselves.
Doomed to Another Poor Season
They say that if the men will not
come out, Michigan is doomed to an-
other such season as she had last fall,
and they are tired of pleading with
men to get out. The athletic associa-
tion hasdone all in its power for the
team and the men who compose the
team, and now if they themselves will
not get out and do something for
Michigan, nothing to make a success-

do not get out will be the responsible

will be held tomorrow night in an ef-
fort to get at the botton of the whole

the men will not come out. Personals

being sent out by the athletic
to get them out for the meeting.
