STOPPED BY RAINS
Michigan will not participate in the
Conference mass athletic meet as ad-
verse weather conditions have kept
men from coming out and training for
the events. At least 200 athletes
must be entered in the meet and not
more than 50 men have been out
any one night. As the meet is to take
place between May 14 and 24 the
prospects are that Michigan cannot
enter, according to Dr. George A.
He says that this is the worst
spring from the weather standpoint
he has experienced in Ann Arbor, but
other conference teams have had more
"In as much as the no-athletes, for
whom mass athletics were arranged
primarily, refuse to cavort in track
uniforms on cold days, the failure of
the plan at Michigan is easily under-
stood. The failure rests with the
"These men, unused to track work
and not knowing how to care for
themselves under varying conditions,
have a good reason for not coming
out," he continued.
Mass athletics will be considered
again next year, when better weather
can be expected, with better oppor-
tunities for training.
Under the proposed plan each uni-
versity holds contests on its own field.
Results are forwarded to the several
schools for comparison and the win-
In spite of the unfavorable weather
Friday afternoon, the Varsity track
men had a fairly stiff workout.
Coach Farrell had almost despaired
of getting any warm weather, when
the thermometer took a healthy rise
for the first three days of the past
week, giving the track men a chance
for real work.
The results showed that stiff mus-
cles were the only thing which was
holding down the speed on the out-
door track. On Wednesday, Messner
tried his hand at the half mile and
with Larson turned out the best 880
that has been run this year. Captain
Sedgwick is running the long distance
in good form. Pat Smith, who has
teen tossing the weights, has shown
exceptional ability at throwing the dis-
Cook and Losch have been tearing,
off the sprints in a way that promises
well for the Chicago meet next Satur-
day. Cross and Westbrook have been
shoving up the bar graduallykin their
pole vaulting, and Wesbrook is de-
veloping into a very good broad jump-
er. Johnson is displaying the old
world-beating form in the 100 yard
event but has not had much oppor-
tunity to practice hurdling.
Most of the Varsity men will work-
out this morning on account of the
interclass meet this afternoon.

in taking the majority of the matches.
Bartz and Muntz played well togeth-

THREE GAXES TO BE DECIDED
THIS MORNING IN CLASS SERIES
Three interclass baseballA matches
are scheduled for decision at 10 o'clock
this morning on south Ferry field. At
this hour the junior lits will open their
season by facing the seniors of the
same college, the junior engineers will
meet the senior engineers, and the
junior medics battle the fresh laws.
These matches are directly depend-
ent on the rather doubtful presence of
some of the class teams booked. The
general negligence of all aggregations
in the practice line has been the
marked feature of the interclass series
up to the present time.
Only one official game has been re-
corded thus far in the season. This
match ended in a victory for the
soph engineers over their departmen-u
tal freshmen last Wednesday.
All three games today will consist
of five innings.
All Fresh baseball practice
will be held at 2:30 o'clock this
afternoon. A practice game will
be played with a picked team
of old Varsity players.

Omits Purdue Trip
After idling at Notre Dame on
Thursday, the Varsity baseball nine
was unable to meet Purdue yesterday
because of inclement weather and wet
grounds. The trip of the week, how-
ever, will continue, and on Saturday.

Their victory over the strong Co
lumbus American association team,
makes them loom ip as strong oppo-
nents for any Conference nine.
Parks will undoubtedly represent the
Wolverines, on the mound Saturday,
at Ohio State. His pitching, which is
improving, despite the fact that there
is little room for it, is expected to
help a great deal in vanquishing the
attempts of the Scarlet and Gray
squad, to annex another victory.
The fact that "their victory in the
Big Ten was won from Purdue, which
is a comparatively weak team, leads
critics to give Michigan the edge on
the Buckeyes in the game Saturday.
The general opinon is to the eff t
that the Maize and Blue teams
come home with the victory, main-
taining its 100 per cent average in
the Conference standing.
