Victory Over Toledo University Shows
Strength of Wolverine
Six pre-season basketball contests
engaged in by the Michigan quintet, to
give the Varsity men some action
during the vacation period, netted the
Maize and Blue team 108 points to 91
registered by the opposition.
Coach Mitchell's 1919 Apuad, and
secondteam to represent the Univer-
sity in the quintet running in the Big
Ten, are rapidly rounding into shape
for the year's schedule.
Basket Shooting Poor-
"Basket .shooting is still below par,
but the team work is excellent," is the
comment that the coach has to offer
on his team. "The vacation trip was
a decided success."
Four of the six contests went to the
Wolverines, while the Detroit Rayls,
and the Detroit Y. M. O., both carried
the long end of the scores in their
meets with the Maize and Blue team.

team, the Detroit College of Law. the
Fort Wayne St. Paul team and Toledo
University were the victims of Michi-
Hewlitt Working Good
Concentrated workouts, especially to
increase the basket finding ability of
the men, will be engaged in this week.
Hewlitt, the one veteran on the squad,
proved the star of the majority of the
games, counting the majority of the
points for the Michigan eleven. Kar-
pus, the other forward, also made a
very good showing.
Williams and Wilson at guard are
making an excellent showing, while
Cohn is without a question one of the
best guards the University has seen.
Toledo Victory Significant
The victory of the Wolverines over
the Toledo University team is looked
upon as very favorable to the stand-
ing of the Michigan eleven. Toledo
has already played and won from
Ohio State, giving the Maize and Blue
team an edge on the scarlet and gray
Practice is now being held in Wat-
erman gymnasium. Two short and
snappy workouts will be held this
week, in preparation for the Camp
Custer Officers' quintet, which will
appear here Friday night.

For Frosb Work,
The Waterman gymnasium is in
shipshape and ready for business, ac-
cording to Doctor May, physical di-
rector. He says "first come, first serv-
ed" will be the rule in dealing out
the lockers. The locker privilege will
cost two dollars, to be paid at the
treasurer's office. A receipt, in the
form of a ticket may then be present-
ed at the gym.
Doctor May advises all freshmen to
secure lockers as soon as possible be-
cause he anticipates a big rush at the
last moment. This will undoubtedly
take place unless most of the lockers
are spoken for now, as unusually large
classes are expected.
Track men, both Varsity and fresh-
men, must get lockers immediately as
real work will begin Monday.

NATIONAL HONORS SIEN
TWO MICHIGAN THLETES
STEKETEE AND JOHNSON
NAMED BY NATIONAL
With two Wolverines taking na-
tional honors in the sport world,
Michigan springs into the lead in the
western conference for producing in-
Steketee, the freshmandsensaton
produced by Coach Yost during the
past football season, and Carl John-
son, Michigan's most famous track
star, are the honored men. Steketee
was the only western football star to
receive a place on Camp's All-Ameri-
can eleven, while Johnson was given
the All-Amateur broad jump record.
Sfeketee Only Westerner
Camp's announcement of his star
eleven create some sensation when the
Michigan freshman's name appeared
on the team, since he was the only
westerner picked. The remainder of
the team was made up largely of Sy-
racuse and Pittsburg men.
Johnson's honor came as the result
of his remarkable work with the
Maize and Blue track squad last year.
Besides broad jumping, the star is al-
so a sprinter. He will be with the
squad this year.
Goetz on Third Team
Goetz, the captain-elect for the 1919
Wolverine squad, was also honored by
Camp in his selections. The stellar
guard was given a guard position on
the third national team.
