illinois Relay Carnival Early in Marqh
First Big Event of
TWO MILE RELAY RACE TO BE
RUN SATURDAY AFTERNOON
Michigan's track men are gradually
being rounded into form by Coach
Steve Farrell in preparation for the
Illinois Relay Carnival to be held at
Urbana early in, March. A quartet of
Varsity half milers will race four
freshmen at 3 o'clock Saturday aft-
erntoon in a two mile relay, which will
be the first real test for this set of
middle distance men.
Burkholder and Douglas, the two
best half milers of last year's track
team, are sure to be in the race, and
the others Will be chosen by Steve
later in the week after further trials
have been given.. Archie Hahn will
probably run Weeks and Hattendorf
on his team, and he will pick the
other pair from Marston, Arndt, Dav-
is, Morland, and Bowan. "The Var-
sity will know they've run when we
get through with them," Archie said.
Stiff Work for 440 Men
The quarter milers are also coming'
in for their share of work, and Steve
expects them to form Michigan's
strongest relay team, every man of
last year's formidable quartet being

Midway school In a dual meet on the
last Saturday in February, he is not
neglecting his other departments.
Wesbrook has been showing the best
of the pole vaulters recently. Yester-
day afternoon he was vaulting for
form, the bar not being placed up,
his exhibition being particularly
pleasing to Steve.
Denton Showing Well
In the mile Denton is beginning to
show some of his last year's form,
which made him the strongest fresh-
man distance man. If his steady im-
provement continues, the Wolverines
will be well represented in this de-
partment, which was their weakest
Jumping to perfect their form,
Walker, Ward, and Platts have all
been clearing the bar in the high
jump at a good mark. Cruikshank
and Sargent are being developed into
hurdlers and look like promising
men to take the place of Johnson and
"Judge Landis has an excellent
chance of ridding baseball of its un-
desirable elements," said Derrill
Pratt, Michigan's new baseball coach,
in an interyiew yesterday. "He has
the whole-hearted support of the
owners, as they realize, that without
drastic agtion Americas national
sport will be ruined."
Coach Pratt stated that a move-
ment is now on foot to stamp out
gambling among the players, which
is one of the chief causes of more
serious dishonestT. He believes that,
while gambling in the stands will con-
tinue despite the efforts of the own-
ers, All players found guilty of "throw-'
ing games" will be prosecuted until
there is none of that element left in
baseball. The owners are willing to
sacrifice even their most valuable
players if by that means they can save'
the sport from ruin.
INTRAMURAL NOTICE '

Intramural department by call-

Michigan Agricultural college has
been forced to cancel the dual swim-
ming meet with the Wolverine tank
team, according to advices received
from Athletic Director Brewer of the
Lansing institution. The Board in
Control at the Aggie school has de-
cided against the maintenance of a
swimming team during the present
year and, as a result, all dual meets
have been called off. The engage-
ment was to have taken place at
Lansing on Jan. 29.
Although it is considered all but
impossible at this late date to secure
another meet for the evening left
open strenuous efforts are being made
to secure opposition. Several schools
have been appealed to and it is hop-
ed that one of them will be able to
meet the Michigan tank men. The
ruling of the Board in Control
which prohibits Conference competi-
tion makes it extremely difficult to
arrange dual meets.
Following are Tuesday's results in
the basketball tourney: Sigma Chi
defeated Alpha Beta Phi, 31 to 19. The
stars were Witt for the victors and

Chi defeated Acacia, 17 to 4; Nu Sig-

Johnny Maulbetsch, '17, has climbed
another rung on the long ladder that
leads to supremacy among gridiron
exponents of all time. It has been an-
nounced that he has been selected

of 1913 after four years competition

prep school record by being selected
captain of the All-fresh football team.
The next fall, in his first year of Var-
sity football, he was picked on Camp's
first All-American at the half back po-
sition and for the next two years oc-
cupied the same place in the lineup
of the mythical All-western elevens.
He finished his football career in the
proverbial blaze of glory' by leading
Yost's 1916 aggregation through a suc-
Immediately after his graduation
Johnny accepted the position of coach
of football, basketball, and baseball,
at Phillips university, Enid, Okla. He
is now completing his fourth year of
service there and his success has been
little short of phenomenal. Everyone
from the president of Phillips down to
the most verdant freshman swears by
the former Michigan star. His work
in keeping up the morale of his teams
in addition to his excellent coaching
has been highly commendable. In his
new position Maulbetsch is sure to
