Interest in the'bowling alleys has
been heightened by the opportunities
for competition offered by the bowling
committee. Informal tourneys have-
been in progress the major portion of
the year and no end of interesting and
entertaining results have been record-
ed. A faculty league composed of pro-
fessors and instructors of the eco-
nomics department played games
throughout the winter. The first tour-
'nement organized by the Union bowl-
ing committee was entered by eight
fraternities and several independent'
teams. A team representing the Un-
ion and composed of several Varsity
athletes proved too strong for the rest
of the field and the cup won by this
team is on exhibition now at the main
desk at the Union. An interclass in-

George Spears, 'veteran champion of
Michigan was the next attraction and
fared a trifle better than his predeces-
sor holding Taylor to a 300 to 254
The last match with a national cel-
ebrity was staged, a few weeks ago
with Percy Collins, who a short time
before had wrested the national ama-
teur title from McAndless as the goat.
Taylor got away to a big lead and
gave his opponent no opportunity to
threaten lhim. All of these matches
were played before capacity audiences
and the men who saw them are anxi-
ously awaiting the announcement of
the next game. 4
As many of the members were clam-
oring for some regulated competition
when the room opened 'a handicap
straight rail tournament was started
with 15 entrants. A loving cup was
offered by the Union as a stimulus to
the sport and some very creditable ex-
hibitions were made. R. E. Gale, ,22,
was the individual star of this tour-
ney and was placed at scratch, he
made the best showing of the list mak-
ing a high run of 42 and highest aver-
age completing a string in 38 innings.
His handicap was too great, however,
and he lost the cup to. J. C. Harbert,
