SHACKLING THE COACH
Football is over and done for this school year,
basketball is just beginning, and now we find our-
selves confronted with the prospects of another
track season. But, sadly enough, those prospects
are not of the best, for Coach "Steve" Farrell an-
nounced recently that at his first meeting but eighty-
two men had presented themselves as candidates for
the 1922 squad - and Michigan numbers among
her undergraduate body probably more male stu-
dents than any other university in the West.
We are not prone to go about waving our arms
and shouting about our deficiencies any more than
we are inclined to over-emphasize our good points.
But, if Michigan, with all her material, with all her
-alleged spirit and fight, with all her enthusiasm and
good sportsmanship, cannot turn out more than
eighty-odd men for a track squad; then some action
ought to be taken.
Michigan can count among her graduated sons
countless men of note in the track world, and a few
of high standing still remain with us. But a few
cannot uphold the athletic name of the entire Uni-
versity. Neither are coaches able to make squads
out of air and talk.
It has been said in recent times that Michigan can
no longer exist on vanishing glories, and the same
thing applies to her track work as well as to all
other forms of athletics. We of the present genera-
tion will have to sacrifice a bit for Michigan if she
is to continue to uphold her high standards of the
past. We ought to have several times eighty men
out for the squad to take care of necessary elimina-
tions among the candidates and to furnish the basis
for a truly representative team.
f campus organizations and undergraduates in
general will see to it that the coach is supplied with
nmterial from their ranks, we can place a winning
squad on the gym floor and field this year. But,
if we all fail to provide a proper turn-out, Michi-
gan had better withdraw from competition wihle
the withdrawing is good.
Our first meet comes on February 18, when we
meet Chicago in Waterman gymnuasium. What
kind of an outfit are we going to put on the floor
A CHANCE FOR AUTHORSHIP
. With few exceptions those individuals of the Uni-
versity most interested in writing seek an outlet for
their energies in campus activities or in other fields
of journalism. Experience has taught, however,
that the most interested are not always the most
able, and Michigan no doubt has in her ranks any
number of talented writers whose manuscripts are
laid in a drawer at their completion and promptly
forgotten, or potential literary artists whose nat-
ural ability so far has been neglected.
It is especially for the benefit of these undiscov-
ered writers that Chimes has instituted its first an-
nual Short Story contest. That publication wishes
to bring to light some of those forgotten manu-
scripts and to draw forth literary potentialities, so
that the work of able writers upon the campus may
be recognized and their talents developed.
The entire student body of Michigan has been in-
vited to join in the contest. But, in order to bring
out those men who so far have not been sufficiently
interested to write merely for the sake of writing,
Chimes has arranged to offer four cash prizes rang-
ing from $5o down to $io, for the four best short
stories submitted by the fifth of next April.
The Chimes' contest should prove an attractive
stimulus to many literarily inclined students on the
campus who, through it, may profitably try out their
prowess by entering a piece of fiction in the an-
A SCHOOL FOR THE VARSITY
Recently the local unit of the R. O. T. C. organ-
ized the musically inclined within its ranks into a
band. Up to date about fifty men have reported for
the several practices.
The possibilities of such a band are many when
we consider the great benefit it may prove to be to
the Varsity in the future through the supplying of
material for that organization. Although our Var-
sity band is on a par with those from any of other
Conference universities, it still has room for im-
provement in the matter of drill and it is one of the
aims of the new organization to be of service to the
Varsity in this respect. A man may be a veritable
Gabriel on a horn but unless he can keep in step
and stay with the band in formation as well as in
music he is a detriment to the band as a unit.
It is entirely possible that the R. O. T. C. band
ultimately may become a recognized training school
for the Varsity. By attention being given to the
military as well as to musical proficiency, any band
can be improved in quality; and, if men have an
opportunity to drill with the R. . T2* C. a year or
so before they become eligible for the real Univer-
sity band, much can be done toward bettering the
appearance of the latter organization.
It might prove quite profitable for those who seek
to "make" the Varsity to avail themselves, of the
opportunity offered by the R. O. T. C., as the pos-
sibilities are that preference soon may be given to
those who have served their apprenticeship in the
ranks of the training school.
It is reported that an amateur golfer at Trenton,
N. J., recently drove a ball a quarter of a mile. Page
"Babe" Ruth. It seems unfair that a newcomer
should be allowed to top the ranks of the swat aris-
tocracy while one of its most able members is tem-
porarily out of the running.
With the prospects for a continuation of our
present rapid growth in the future, may we not ex-
pect a few years hence to see Michigenensians blos-
soming forth with something about double the gen-
erous proportions of Webster's unabridged?
We are thrilled by the announcement of a recent
fashion show held in Sarah Caswell Angell hall.
But then, the Junior Girls' play unfortunately is not
the only affair hereabouts from which men are ex-
If State street speedsters keep up their present
