Westerners to Afford Stiff Competition
Despite Necessary Smallness
VARS 51 TY 1EET OFFERS PROMISE
The best performances Michigan
students will see this year in the
track world will be offered for their
criticism on Saturday afternoon, when
Coach Farrell hurls his athletes
against "Dad" Moulton's bunch of
Pacific Coast wonders.
Stanford will stop off here en route
to the eastern intercollegiates, which
will be held in, Cambridge, Mass., a
week from the date of the meeting be-
tween Farrell's hopefuls and Moul-
Saturday's competition will be the
initial appearance that Stanford has
made at Ann Arbor in a dual track
meet since records have been kept by
the athletic association. The coast
men used to take part in the western
intercollegiates of the old days, but
never succeeded in taking the measure
of the Maize and Blue. For the past
few years, at intervals, the far west
crners have been sending teams to
compete in the eastern intercollegi-
ates, but owing to the great distance
that the coast men have to come for
this event, they have been handicap-
ped by the inability to send but few
men. Likewise the climate of the
eastern cities seems to have been
against them and consequently they
have never been a serious contender
for first honors.
This year the Palo Alto school is
sending a large representation for
such a distance. It is expected that
they will have at least a dozen ath-
letes on the field Saturday afternoon.
and these athletes are of the type that
Coach Moulton considers to be of in-
The visitors will have at least one
man in each event, and the entry in
each event is said to be a blue ribbon
One disadvantage which will handi-
cap the westerners tremendously is
the scarcity of men which they can
enter in each event. Even should the*
athlete in question earn a first place
in his event, the second and third
places that the Varsity will be able
to pick up can still prevent the Stan-
ford boys licking the Maize and Blue.
From the showing that several of
"Steve's" men exhibited in the annual
Varsity meet of the past week, it is a
certainty that several fast marks are
going to be established. Carroll did
4:24 3-5 in the mile, and one watch
caught him in three seconds faster
time. The miler did this without the
kind of competition that is conducive
to fast time. Ufer tied the Ferry field
record of 1 minute, 57 3-5 seconds, with
Murphy on his heels, and it dis by no
means out of the question that he may
better his time if conditions are good
when this number is announced.
Simmons should give Lachmund
some trouble if his leg gets around to

MAY DROP FRESH-SOPH RACES
Small Turnout at Trials for Relay
Men to Run Saturday
So far not a sophomore and only
9 freshmen have tried out for the re-
lay races which will be held Saturday
morning before the push ball contest.
There have always been three races
between the two lower classes, 16 men
running on each team. The class win-
ning two of the races receives a point
toward the decision for the total of
the games. If more men do not show
a willingness to support Michigan
traditions, this event will have to be
dropped. It is to be hoped that at
least one hundred men from each class
will appear for trials, which have been
extended to include Wednesday and
Thursday afternoons from 3:30 to 5:30
o'clock. Trials will also be held this
afternoon at Ferry field.
Hold Interclass Track Meet May 24
The interclass track meet to be
staged on May 24, will include only
such men who have not won points
in the Varsity meet, or on All-Fresh
teams. Four teams will be entered,
representative of the four classes.

"Bones" Armstrong Puts Cinder Men
In preparation for the annual Pen-
tathlon meet, "Bones" Armstrong is
putting the cinder aspirants through
stiff workouts every afternoon on Fer-
ry Feld, and because of the fact that
the men are receiving a 15-day prac-
tice session this year, there ought to
be some near-Varsity stuff pulled in
this annual classic. The event is
scheduled for May 31 and June 1. The
first day will see the preliminaries,
and the second day will be devoted
entirely to finals.
Only such men who have never tak-
en part in any Varsity meets, and ex-
cepting those who hold lockers at the
club-house, will be allowed to com-
pete in the event. The following
events will be covered: One-mile run,
shot put, high jump, 100-yard dash,
120-yard low hurdles. Each entrant
will be required to take part in every
event, and the point system will be
used in determining the winners. Gen-
eral proficiency in all events will re-
ceive a higher mark than exceptional
proficiency in one or two events, and
lack of ability in others.
The first prize will be a gold watch,
and other prizes of a comparative val-:
ue will be awarded for the other
