Carl Johnson Takes 1 Points; Is Big
Factor in Wolverine
DISTANCE EVENTS WON BY
MAROONS BECAUSE OF TRACK
Exceptional hurdling and jumping
by Carl Johnson gave Michigan the
the deciison over Chicago in a dual
meet in Bartlett gymnasium, Friday
night, by a score of 44 to 33.
The big Maize and Blue star won
three firsts,the 50 yard dash, the 60
yard high, hurdles, and the running
high jump. This continuance of his
remarkable showing of last year and
of the Notre Dame meet this season
makes his place as one of the best of
college athletes most secure.
Pat Smith returned to top form and
won the shot put with a heave of 40
feet, 7 inches. This is nearly a foot
better than he went last week when
he took second to Gilfllin in Water-
man gym. Walls, who placed close
behind Smith, was appearing in his
second meet and looks to have plenty
of ability in pushing the iron ball
around the lot.
Triple Win for 50 Yards
Michigan's sprinters repeated their
triple win in the 50 yard dash. As
in the Notre Dame meet, Johnson led
the field, winning in 5 4-5 seconds,

mn entered in the height hurdles

George Sisler Predicts Victorious
Wal Team For Pichigan This Year
"Michigan's 1919 baseball team is
bound to be a winner," was the com-
ment uttered by George Sisler, who
was recently honorably discharged
from the army, when he visited Ann
Arbor several weeks ago.
"The team looks good," Sisler said,
"and it ought to bring home the ba-
con this year. Practically all of the
old men are back in school.
"With Parks back on the pitching
staff the Wolverines have a rieucleus
ofr a good team. He is one of the
best pitchers Michigan has this year-
infact, I believe he is better than
Ruzika, for he has more steam and a
better assortment of curves balls."
Sisler is with the St. Louis Browns
this year, and is now in winter train-
ing. e has gained five pounds since he
enlisted in the army. Sisler was pre-
pared to leave for over-seas when the
armistice was signed.

AMERICA IS HOST
AT FRENCH GAMES
According to The Stars and Stripes
of Feb. 14, President Wilson and Gen-

Olymic meet to be held next June in
France; that they will each offer a
trophy for the big games.
President Wilson's cup will be
awarded the country which scores'
the highest total in general field
events, while General Pershing's tro-
phy will go to the winning rifle shoot-1

as host at the world games. The gift
of the President brings to mind his
loyal support of athletics and Gen-1
eral Pershing's donation for rifle ex-
cellency is especially significant of
his behalf in the effectiveness of this
weapon in war.
The great stadium which is now be-
ing erected at Joinville-le-Pont for the
international meet will bear the name
of "Pershing Field" and will be pre-
sented to the French on the comple-
tion of the games.

COURT TEAM SUCCESSFUL
DISPITE HARD SEASON
PERSONNEL CHANGES OFTEN
WITH RETURN OF 1918
Michigan's 1919 Varsity team, now
being put to the final test on its trip
south, has had many ups and downs
during the seasoi. There were times
when the situation was decidedly dis-
couraging and moments of extreme
felicitation when it seemed that the
Maize and Blue men were going to
hold the .1000 average which they held
at the beginning of the season.
The squad has seen many changes
in its personnel during its existence.
At the beginning of the year it was
necessary for Coach Mitchell to is-
sue several calls for candidates with
scarcely any result. The team had
only one veteran, Hewlett. The rest
of the 1918 men had graduated or an-
swered the call to the colors.
Williams and Wilson Good
Two of the 1918 All-fresh squad
showed promise in the way of good
basketball material. They were Wil-
son and Williams, a guarding combi-
nation, who had been working to-
gether for years, having played on
the same preparatory school team.
The only other old men present at
the first practices were Cohn; Car-
pus, and Borinstein. This turnout
was in a way satisfactory but what
the coach wanted most was the sup-
port of men with more experience.
Weiss, of last years' freshman
team, and Rychener, of the 1918 Var-
sity squad, arrived a while after the
season had started and strenghthen
the line-up considerably.
I Captain Emery Returns
The advent of Emery and McClin-
tock in January was the final big
boost theteam received. There is no
doubt that the addition of these two
men, together with the improvement
of the team generally, due to practice,
has accounted a great deal for the
way in which Michigan has come
through this far with a creditable
Doc Emery was elected captain last
year and his appearance gave the team
the leadership which is necessary to
any kind of success. Williams, who
had discharged the duties of chief un-
