that will be played during the week
filled th Waterman gym with fra-
ternit teams at all available hours

entire-day' in the gymnasium practic-
ing for the opening light.

day night, Theta XI vs. Zeta Beta
Tau; -Phi Kappa Sigma vs. Delta Tau
Delta; Beta Theta Pi vs. Alpha Sigm

Any Group Eligible
In the departmental league any
group of men that are in the same
course may organize a team, regard-
less of class. More than one team
from a depaitaent can be entered, as
the idea of the league is to get out

when the teams were picked for the
class teams they would be composed
of the best material on the campus.

leagues.

UNITED STATES OLYMPIC TEAM
LACKS EXPER.IENCED ATHLETES'
On account of the fact that no
Olympic games were held in 1916, the
United States . delegation will go to
Antwerp next summer, with hardly a
half dozen men who have had previ-
ous Olympic game experience. Nearly
all the men who aided 'in scoring
America's great victory at Stockholm
in 1912 have given up competition al-
together. This is true of all but
three of the champions. The only men
who are now in active competition are
some of the younger men who were
just beginning to develop in 1912 and
three of New York's policeman weight
throwers.

expcted to develop into a good weightI

Bob Cook was out for the first time
last week. He suffered an injury to
his foot this last summer but it is
expected that he will be able to sprint
with his old form In many of the
dual meets last fear Johnson, Cook,
and Losch scored slams in the dash-
es. In the- mile Earle has been show-
ing up favorably for early season
work. Few other men have done much
in this line. The .need "for distance
men is keenly felt.
The spirit which prevails among the
track candidates at Waterman gymna-
sium is one of hard work. It has been
many years since the Athletic. author-
ities have arranged such an excellent
schedule. The competition is the
strongest and best. - Meets at which
the strongest teams in the country
will compete have been arranged for
the Varsity. i
Trips Numerous
Trips for the team are numerous
and it will oppose the best track out-
fits in the country. The "cinder class-
ic of the West," namely, the Confer-
ence outdoor meet, is scheduled to take
place at Ann Arbor. This is the first
time that this great track event has
been held here at Michigan In the
words of Con Church, "all Detroit and
this section of Michigan is expected
to move right out to Ann Arbor for
this meet."
