CIDE UPON ELIGIBILITY
Basketball at the University of
Michigan now rests upon the decision
that will be reached by the meting
of conference representatives in Chi-
cago this afternoon. Questions of el-
igibility and schedules will be thrash-
ed out at this meeting.
The initial step toward the sport
being taken up at the University again
this year, was taken by Coach Mitchell
'this week when he issued a call for!
Gym Now Intlse
Waterman gymnasium, the place
where the games are held and where
practice Is carried on, is at present, in
the hands of military authorities, and
is being used as a barracks. It will
be necessary to clear the place before
practice can be held.
It is hoped by athletic authorities,
that the place will be cleared within
a short time. It will depend, however,
on the rapidity with which the men
receive their discharges.
A wealth of good material is com-
ing to the attention of Coach Mitchell,
despite the fact that there are but
very few veterans in school. A num-
ber of the football men, who have had
experience in the court game, have
reported and will be given tryouts.

SHIPPING ON LAKE SUPERIOR
SHOWS INCREASE FOR SEASON
(By Associated Press)
Marquette, Dec. 6.-There are very
few boats now plowing the icy wat-
ers of Lake Superior. Only the most
hardy skippers dare to seek, at this
perilous season of gales and blizzards,
the high rates paid for cargo carrying
on this great body of water this late
in the year.
The past season has been, for Lake
Superior, one remarkably free of mar-
itime disasters. Questions were ask-
ed a few days ago as to the where-
abouts of two trawlers, built for serv-
ice across the Atlantic, which had
sailed from Fort William for the sea-
board. Loss .of both ships and lives
on the northernmost of the great
lakes has been small this year, hew-
The season has been a remarkably
good one for ore shippers, 1917 car-
goes averaging 5,188 tons, compared
with an average of 5,868 tons this
year. There has been a big increase
in total amount of ore shipped from
here this year, the figures reaching
OVERSEA AIRMEN ARE BEING
SENT TO CUSTER HOSPITAL
Camp Custer, Dec. 6.-Two hundred
and fifty airmen will arrive in 10
days at Camp Custer for demobiliza-
tion from overseas duty. Other units
will follow, as efforts are being made
to send all men here whose homes
are in this section.
Ten wounded fighters, all Michigan
boys, arrived at Custer today to have
their Chateau Thierry wounds attend-
ed to at the Custer base hospital. Two
had lost their legs, one was minus a
foot, one suffering with a paralyzed
arm, and nearly all had more than
one wound stripe.
Already about 20 officers have been
discharged. The surplus of men in
the depot brigade will probably be dis-
charged within a few days. The whole
camp have now left their tents for the

TRACK MEN - NOTICE
All track men who have equip-
ment in the Ferry field club
clubhouse are asked to get it
out by the end of this week, that
the clubhouse may be closed.
Some one will be at the field, to
let the men in the locker rooms,
when they appear.
Track practice will be held in
Waterman gymnasium as soon
as it is vacated by the soldiers,
Doc. May, trainer, announced
last night. Workouts will also
be held on the outside track.

Col. Vigtor C. Vaughan, of the de-
partment of medicine, predicts the
rapid development of the motion pic-
ture in teaching, especially in the
field of science. He brought with him
.on this trip to Ann Arbor several
films produced by the instruction lab-
oratory of the army medical museum.
At present these and similar pictures
are being used by the army in in-
structing medical officers at the vari-
ous training camps. This method of
instruction has been thus tried on a
large scale and found very success-
After the present conditions have
settled down, copies of these films
may be loaned by the army to vari-
ous schools, passing to each in rota-
tion. Other pictures will be taken,
especially of surgical operations. The
only handicaps at present are the nov-i

films to the limited budgets of the
