Track pratice, Wednesday after-

the honors of the Maize and Blue will
be upheld by a championship team
this season. The condition of all the
men on the team is good.
Captain Sedgwick clipped off one
of the fastestdhalf miles Wednesday,
making the distance in 2:6. The
Wolverine star distance man is show-
ingsimprovement and his work of the
past season will be surpassed. Carl
Johnson lhas fully recovered from his
injury, Coach Farrell announced, and
is running the 50-yard dash in good,
form.
Cross and Wesbrook both vaulted
over 11 feet Wednesday and can be
counted on to take two places in this
event. The. quarter milers running
against time' showed that they were
fully capable of upholding the honors
in their branch. Pat Smith looked
well in the shot put.
This afternoon the trials for the re-
lay team will be held. Four men will
' be chosen, each one to run two laps.
Cornell has entered a wrestling

LANSING QUINTET
TO SEEK REVENGE
East Lansing, Feb. 26.-Determin-
ed to reverse the result of its last
contest with the Wolverines, the M.
A. C. quintet is working hard this
week in expectation of making the
game with the Michigan five, Friday
night, a victory for the Green and
White.
With the defeat at the hands of
Michigan by a two point margin still
in mind, the Farmer five is practicing
with the one hope of taking the ba-
con from Coach Mitchell's aggrega-
tion. Whether they will or not, can
be decided by thecontest alone. The
Aggies are laying no claims to the
honorbefore going onto the floor.
It is expected that the same lineup
will be sent against Michigan as in
the last game. Everything possible is
being done to reverse the result of
the last contest as well as attempt
to make up for the defeat of the foot-
ball team.

HIGH PHYSICAL AVERAGE CARD
Record Classes Freshman Fullback
with Former Gridiron
Athletes
Frank Steketee, Michigan's fresh-
man All-American fullback, has just
turned in a physical chart of 95 per
ceit, one of the best that has been
recorded in recent year6.
This average places him in a class
with Willard Peach and Elton Wie-
man, noted Varsity football stars. John
Garrels, '07L, holds a total of 99 per
cent, the highest that has ever been
made here. Garrels was a football
and track star, one of the best that
Michigan has known..-
Duke Dunne, '22, who starred at
end on the Varsity eleven last fall,
ranked second with a percentageaof
90. In the cases of Steketee and
Dunne, the lines denoting general
condition were nearly straight, show-
ing exceptional development. Dr.
May asserts that this development is
in reach of all if a real effort is made
to make headway in the gymnasium
classes.
MOUNT UNION SPORT BREAKS
WESTERN RESERVE RELATIONS
Alliance, O., Feb. 26.-Mount Union
college will not E resume athletic re-
lations with Western Reserve univer-
sity for some time at least. In Decem-
ber at the meeting of coaches and
managers at Columbus,. Ohio, a num-
ber of contests, both in football and
basketball, were arranged for Reserve
and Mount Union. A m6nth later
Coach Yocum of Reserve cancelled the
games and cut the athletic relations
between the two colleges.
In answer to a telegram received
at Alliance from Reserve, stating that

Coach Mitchell is whipping the Var-
sity five into shape for the last two
games of the season which will be
played inrAnn Arbor.He iseparticu-'
larly desirous of putting over a vic-;
tory in these last, two chances to
show the local fans the kind of bas-J
ketball that the Varsity has been dis-
playing recently.
The match, Friday night, promises
some.excitement because the Lansing
men are coming with the idea of get-
ting their revenge for the way in
which they were forced to bow before
the Maize and Blue earlier in the sea-
son on their own floor.
Wolverines Practice New Style
The Varsity was put through a fast
scrimmage with the freshmen last
night. The first year team played in
what is known as the five men defense,
this being the type of play which M.
A. C. uses and the coach wished to
accustom the team to breaking the
system.
M. A. C. is coming with a fast team
and a reputation which makes their
announced determination to clean up
seem significant. They are about the
same weight as the Michigan men and
have the advantage of having three
veterans, Snider, forward, and Kurtz
and Garrett, guards.
Aggies Possess Good Players
They have also a valuable! man in
Foster, who is playing his first sea-
son. This man has made his mark
in every game which M. A. C. has play-
ed this season.
Thef Farmers resemble Indiana in
their style of play, depending on rush-
es down the floor to score and then
taking time to recover their strength by
playing a tight defensive game. In
preparation for this five man protec-
tion the squad will be forced to re-
sort to long shots.
WARDEPARTMENT ESTIMATES
ENTIRE WAR DEBT OF U. S.

All-Fresh basketball is progressing
at a rapid rate, with regular scrim-
mages every night. Coach Rowley is
well pleased with the improvement in
teamwork and basketshooting.
Since the selection of the squad,
Rae and Meilstrop have been working
at forwards, Dunne at center, Peare
and Merkel at guard. This combination
has played several fast practice games
against the rest of the squad.
There are several players on the
yearling team whose showing has been
good enough to warrant them a chance
with the Varsity next year. This has
been especially noticeable since the
team was picked and the men have
had an opportunity to play together a
few times.
A tentative preliminary game has
been arranged for Friday night, when
Michigan faces M. A. C. That will
probably be the last real game of the
season, since, due to the Conference
ruling, no outside teams can be
played.

That tells the story of this new

FITFORM

It will cost the American peopl e
about $1,200,000,000 a year for the1
next 25 years to pay off the war
debt, according to estimates of the
War department. After our loans to
the Allies have been deducted our
net war debt is estimated at $18,-1
000,000,000.
Interest at four and one-quarter per
cent would be $765,000,000 a year, to
be raised by taxes, then repaid to the
bond holders.
In addition to this culumative a
sinin" fund of 2.32 per cent would be
required to provide $417,000,000 a year
in order to redeem all the bonds in

clothes for young fellows. Every
line of this model will appeal to _
school men and other young
chaps who want real style in
clothes.
