Intramural Office Reports Record
Number Turning Out for Var-
HOCKEY AND BASKETBALL
LEAGUES-NEXT ON SCHEDULE
With the last pin knocked over in
the class bowling to rnament, and the
final swimming meet finished, the in-
tramural office has completed the first
part of its program for the year.
During the fall season, Director
Mitchell has made r arrangements for
both fraternity and class contests in
soccer, bowling, swimming, football,
tennis, and cross country. The result
of these affairs has been satisfactory
to the intramural office and indicate
that the campus is taking a mueh
greater interest in athletics than in
the past. Some of the sports that
were inaugurated this semester
were caught up by the classes and
fraternities with such spirit that the
intramural office had to work day and
night to keep up with this unexepect-
ed'turn of affairs.-
Soccer New Sport
Soccer made its appearance as ani
intramural sport this fall. Neverthe-
less there were 31 teams in two dif-
ferent leagues, playing on Ferry field.
It was thought that last year .an un-
beatable record was set when 22
teams entered in the bowling tourney.
But this number was greatly over-
the Union alleys. It is interesting tc
note that the quality of this year's
teams surpassed that of last season's
aggregations by a considerable marg-
in. The two high marks of last fall
of 605 and 579 for three successive
games looks meager when compared
with this' year's tallies. There were six
high counts ranging between 641 and
622 for the set of three games. Alsc
quite a number of bowlers bowled the
pins for scores falling near the 602
The same success attended this sem-
ester's football league, 47 teams turn-
ing out against 28 last year. In 1919f
49 men signed up for cross country
while 84 hill and dalers came out this
season. The greatest increase is
noted in swimming, for notwithstand-

PRATT NOT GOING
BACK TO MAJORS
Derrill Pratt, new Michigan diamond
coach, will not play professional base-
ball next year, and probably will nev-

According to report, Pratt, who
went to the Boston Red Sox as a re-
sult of an eight man deal between that
team and the, New York Yankees,

ounced that he is through with pro-

LARGEST ISLAND OF OUTER
HEBRIDES ADOPTS PROHIBITION
Stornoway, Scotland, bDec. 16.-(De-
layed.)-The island of Lewis, the larg-
est of the Outer Hebrides, has over-
whelmingly voted "dry" in the prohi-
bition poll taken here.
For total abolition there were 720
'votes; for no change, 149, and for lim-
itation of drink licenses, 5.
As a result, all licenses .on the is-
land will be annulled next May.
Lewis is a rugged island which
abounds in ancient Druidic structures
and ruined old-time fortresses.
Bear stories now current, that Field-
ing H. Yost, Varsity football coach at
Michigan for 20 seasons, will not be
here next year, are emphatically de-
nied by Yost himself. When turning
down the offer made him by the Uni-
versity bf West Virginia, he said that
when he quit coaching at Michigan he
would quit coaching. Several other
schools have also asked the Michigan
leader to take- charge of their grid-
iron squads, but with no more success
than the West Virginia school.
