AT MEETING OF OFFICIALS
CHICAGO - RULINGS
(Thomas F. McAllister)
With its recent victory over all
competing colleges in the western
Conference, Michigan takes the title
of indoor track champions for the sec-'
ond successive time in as many
In capturing the leadership in track
and field sports from the .great col-
leges and universities of the west,
Michigan advances again her athletic
record, and with the championship of
baseball last year, and an undefeated
gridiron team of the pa t j season
seems settled in her old athletic pre-
dominance of "champions of the
Since the track victory at North-,
western, opinion has become general
that in recognition, not only of the
two years of continued championship,..
including this year, but also because
of the first championship won since
the end of the war, certain definite ex-
pression should be given Varsity track
men, who as point winners contributed
to making such a distinctive record.
During normal times a small gold

football teams, and in like manner. a
similar custom prevailsin baseball.
Track, which has 'won two indoor
championships in a row, is the only
branch of sport overlooked.
And in this fashion, track is neg-
lected badly. Perhaps the only other
way of honoring the track .men espe-
cially, in winning years, would be to
inscribe their names on the Confer-
ence trophy, but this is not believed
suitable, and consequently with no
other alternative, the, track men are
left with no more than . a season
had been mediocre or bad.
Suggestions have been made by
students on the campus, which appear
preferable even to the inscription of
the names on a trophy, and which in
distinguishing champion men, also are
of such a personal nature ,that the
honor would be more definite and last-
It is thought that a watch fob in
the form of a small gold track shoe,
or of some nature expressive and char-
acteristic of track, inscribed suitably,
should be awarded members of a
champion track team., In such a way

Since Monday the squad have been
practicing at the extreme south end
of the field. Mr. Thomas, in charge
of the grounds, has not yet given his
consent to letting the men play on the
big diamond.' If rain does not con-
tinue it will p.robably be possible
However, the team seems to have
made a good deal of progress since
outdoor work was taken up. The
Waterman gymnasium practices were
beneficial in many ways but thesooner
the squad could get out into the big
field the ,better. Batting and infield
work has comprised both practices this
week. Different combinations for in-
fields are being tried out daily. The
one that hascreated the best impres-
sion so far consisted of the following:
'Huber, catcher; Adams, first base;
Knode, second base; Van Boven, short
stop; Froemke, third base.
Football rules and officials were
discussed at the meeting of the "Big
Ten" gridiron coaches in Chicago,
Saturday, following the Conference
track and field meet at Evanston.
It was decided that the field judges,
who are the time-keepers in all games
where there are four officials, shall be
instructed to take time out for pen-
alties exacted after an incompleted
forward pass. There is no rule that
specifically covers the case in ques-
tion so that time is seldom called by
the "men in charge. In a close game
where there is much use of the pass
a great deal of time is wasted in en-
forcing these penalties, time that
would otherwise be employed in de-
termining the superiority of one of the
A drastic change in the present
rules is advocated -by Coach Zuppke,
of Illinois. .Adoption of this ruling
would do away with one fo the most
spectacular feats of the gridiron game,
the chance of winning on a recovered
fumble. The Illinois man thinks that
too many games- are being won by
streaks of luck, when some player
scoops up a loose ball and converts
it into a touchdown. He says that the
ball should be given to the side whose
player recovers it, and no run with the
ball should be allowed.
Zuppke quoted Coach Yost, of Michi-
gan, as being heartily in favor of this
change. He also said that the Maize
and Blue mentor had written to the
rules committee concerning the mat-
The increased popularity of basket-
ball as a winter sport has led to ef-
forts on the part of those interested
to devise some means whereby the
ball can be in motion all of the time,
instead of wasting time shooting fouls
as they are called. When fouls are
called, 20 or 30 seconds elapse before
the ball goes into play again.
Frank Birch, one of the Conference
basketball officials, has brought up a
good suggestion, which ' is worthy of
consideration. Instead of permitting
throws for the basket after fouls, the
offended team shall be given one point
and the ball put in play by tossing it
in the air at the spot of the foul.
Has Michigan another Sisler on the
This question is being seriously dis-
cussed by diamond fans in the Uni-
versity for the past week, especially
after the appearance of Parks on the
mound on Ferry field.
Parks is displaying considerable
ability at hurling the sphere across
the pan with accuracy. His speed is
praiseworthy, and his variety of curv-
ed balls may earn him the distinction
of being the star Wolverine hurler

peared in the box and was one of the
best Michigan has ever produced.
