May Help Basket Shooting ,
During the past two seasons, open-'
ing basektball as a major sport at
Michigan, basket shooting has pi'oved
the weakest spot in the Wolverine
makeup. It hat been pointed out that
one possible reason for this deficiency
might be found in the fact that the
majority of Conference gymnasiums
used glass behind their hoops which
threw the Wolverine five off color in
foreign games following steady prac-
tice on the home wooden backs. With
the installment of the new banking
boards no excuse will remain fof the
insdividual weakness in basket throw-
ing which had slowed Coach Mather
in rounding the current team into
fighting shape.
In ordering equipment for'the 1920
baseball and track squads Mi. Bal-
telme received- a statement from the
A. G. Spalding and Bros. representa-
tive that Michigan averages 25 per
cent higher orders than any other
member of the Big Ten -in 'this. line.
This concern supplies the entire Con-
ference with baseball and track shoes
which can be ta'ken as the only crl-
terion as football and other supplies'
are purchased from various sources.
Order Spring Equipment
The order placed Wednesday by the
Athletic association includes 72 pairs
of baseball shoes and 95 pairs of track
shoes. In addition to this number the
association has now on hand 25 pairs
of new baseball shoes which with a
supply of all old but useable variety
will take care of-the 1920 spring ath,-
letes in this respect.

While the right to the final col-
legiate laurels of the gridiron sport is
being disputed by the East am the
West, the wreath of the senior divi-
sion of the sport rests securely upon
a combine claiming Canton, Ohio, as
its home.,
Under the directorship of James
Francis Thorpe, the great ex-Crlisle
Indian and Olympic star, has been
brid* an eleven which is recogniz-
ed ,s one of the greatest the coun-
try has ever seen together. Every
man but one on the Bulldogs, as the
team is called, is an ex-All-American,
and even many of the subs on the side-
line are legitimate claimants of this
distinction, the big Indian having
chosen from the best football material
in the East, Middle West, and West.
Strong Line and Fast Backs
On the defensive with a line of con-
crete, and with a backfield not unlike
an irresistible force, the Tharpemen
have trampled their way undefeated
to the championship of the: nation by
beating the following prpfessonal ag-
gregations: Detroit, once; Pittsburg,
once; Columbus, once; Akron, twice;
Massillon, twice; Chicago, tied once,
won the second game. After being
held to a tie by the last team, the Can-
tonians played them again and de-
feated them with ease. hough the
champions never met Ceveland, To-
ledo, and Iowa, they nevertheless
overwhelmingly .walloped the teams
which had already eliminated these
three. The super-dreadnaughts have
successg.illy crosseb; the Rubicon of
teams led by ex-Al-American stars
snch as Brickley, Barrett, Ghee, Pol-
lard, Cofall, and Dorias'
'Fred L. Rehor, '17P, gives Michigan
the credit of being represented on this
great eleven, and though he is- only a
substitute, yet he has played in most
of the games. Rehor takes his posi-
tion at left guard.
It is true that the famous Indian
Jim Thorpe, who plays left half' on
the squad whenever the opposition ne-
cessitates it, may not be as speedy a
he was in former years, still any man
who can register in, one game 560
yards by booting the funny ball, and
average close to 60 yards, can well
defend his title as the brightest star
In football's milky way. In the last
game of the season, he set, a record
for professional football, and probably
for any other divisin of the sport, by
a kick that traveled 95 yards. His
drop-k cks today remain nearly .as
; perfect as the 48-yard one he made in
,1.O9, when Carlisle humbled Harvard.
Winners In 1916
In 1916, Thorpe's galaxy brought t
Canton the honors in the professional
feld, and there he has kept them de-
spite the efforts of some 20 challeng-
ers. As the array of players stood a

ranks with that' of the best -universit

Besides Thorpe in the backfield
there are two other noted Indians
namely, Guyon, from Georgia Tech.

In hop'. of Lieut. Efton Janmes,'
'15, former University of Michigan
student and athlete, the American Le-
gion post at Cassopolis, Michigan, has
been designated as the Efton James
Post. James died in action in the
Argonne region..
Before entering the University
James attended the Ann Arbor high
school and was a member of the
team which won the Interscholhstic
championship. Among his teammates
were Maulbetscih, Michigan's former
All-American half-back, Allmendin-
ger, of the 1919 coaching staff, and
several others prominent in local ath-
With the approach of the Christ-
mas recess, a few of the varsity track
men are letting up a bit in their train-
ing at Waterman gym. Wednesday
none of the dash men showed up. Wes-
brook and Slaughter continued to
show good form in the pole-vault. As
there were no classes in the gym yes-
terday the vaulters were able to work
without fear of running into some
guileless freshman. Barringer work-
ed out well at the high jump. Lash-
mit, who won the hurdles in last year's
freshman indoor track meet, got over
the barriers in fairly good style.
Coach Farrell tried out a few . dis-
tance men and uncovered some more
promising material. Hardell, a for-
mer Michigan track man, who was in
the service, gave evidence of ability

You're right. Such a thing couldn't
happen with a medium-priced auto-
mobile-nor, you would think, with
anything else.
And yet this "'impossible" thing has
happened with a medium-priced ciga-
rette. Just note, if you please, the
evidence below, at the left.
how on earth did Fatima do it?
-hat is it.-what does Fatima give
Ct~i these wealthy smokers prefer to
anything given by even the highest-
pnced cigarettes?
The answer is
S "Jest enough Turkish"
Until they had tried Fatima, most
of these men had . been smoking
straight Turkish cigarettes-because,
of course, until a year or so ago these
fancy-boxed, expensive straight Turk-
ish cigarettes were practically the only
cigarettes on/sale at places like those
named below.
* * .*'
'Gradually, however, it seems that
these men have learned two things
about Fatima:
1..That Fatima'sfamousblend (containing
more Turkish than any other blend) has
justenoughTurkish for full flavor; and
2. That the blend is so "balanced" as to
offset entirfly that over-richness or
heaviness of straight Turkish.
* * *
s Which proves again that Fatimas are a
sensible cigarette - that they leave a map
feelijig fine 'and fit even after, smoking more
heavily than usual.
Has your present cigarette-bas any ciga-
rette-as strong a claim for your serious
consideration as has Fatima?
