Growing, sentiment against inter-
collegiate athletics; possible future
abolishment of all sport relations be-
tween universities; the tearing down
of huge stadiums; the cancellation of
building plans for others; all this a
distant, indirect result of failuie to
comply whole-heartedly with the exist-
ing rule in regard to professionalism!
These, in brief, are the pictures paint-
ed by Major John L. Griffiths, Com-
missi oer of Conference Athletics, in
an interview yesterday afternoon.
HaIust Comply Strictly
Major Griffiths, who refereed the
Cornell-Michigan track meet. last
night, talked for a full half-hour,
stressing the importance of strict al-
legiance to both the letter and the
spirit/of the professionalism law. Ma-
jor Griffith is the type of man who
distinctly impresses his hearers with
his sincerity, and his talk carried the
discussion to all angles from which
the situation could be viewed.
H admitted .the extreme difficul-
ties in arriving at any definite reg-
ulations because of the varying d-
greesof sentiment. "The great prob-
lem," he said, "is finding just at what
point to draw the line." He discussed
the ,diversified viewpoints, one of them
being the belief that professionalism
in one sport should not make a man
ineligible for another. "If," he stated,
"two men should play a round of syn-
dicate golf for a dime that, under the
existing rule, would make them pro-
fessional football players. If a man
writes an article on how to put th
shot he is automatically a profession-
al baseball player."
Sentimeni Growig
-Through the widely shifting opin-
ions he showed the distinct .necessity
of drawing the line at the narrowest
possible point, that at which it is now
drawn. "The rule," he said, "was
thoroughly thrashed out last summer
by every athletic director in the Big
Ten, most of them men with from 15
to 25 years experience with the sit-
uation. It is obvious, therefore, that
it is the most desirable regulation
all opinions to the contrary notwith-
Going deeper into the matter, Major
Griffith outlined the growing senti-
ment against intercollegate athletics,
which he traced back to the increase
in professionalism. "The sporting
goods business has more than doubl-
ed since the war," he stated. The grow-
ing number of college men participat-
ing in professional football and base-
ball i, according to his belief, mak-
ing taxpayers wonder whether or not
great universities are worthy of their
support. This, he claimed, is one
great reason for the hesitancy of some
institutions to sink money into ex-
pensive plants for the conducting of
intercollegiate sports.
Favors Amateurs
"Amateur sports," said Major Grif-
fith, "are a great incentive to loyalty.
One can witness a college baseball
game and be certain that the players
are in it only to win for the institu-
tion, with personal glory taking a back
seat and money not a consideration.
while one can never be positive of
this at a big league contest." As a
further illustration of the teaching
of the element of loyalty the Big Ten
commissioner stated that there were
more than 1500 letter men of Confer-
ence institutions in the World ,War
at the same time expressing his doubt
that there was a number even ap-
jiroaching that of athletes from all the
professional ranks combined.
Major Griffith denied that his own
opinion favored those who were de-
manding the breakdown of intercol-
legiate sports. "I believe heartily in

athletic relations between institu-
tions," he said, "and I am sure that
they are bound to continue, but they
call for the heartiest co-operation be-
tween all concerned, particularly as
regards obedience to the non-profes-
sional rule."
Intramural Item s
Approximately 100 athletes, the ma~a
jority of whom are freshmen, have en-
tered the annual interclass indoor
track meet the preliminaries of which
will be held at 7 o'clock tomorrow ev-
ening in Waterman gymnasium. The
finals will be run off Wednesday night.
Many yearlings who starred in the
recent interfraternity track meet have
signed up for the event. Officials in
charge believe that many of the fresh-
men indoor track records will fall
when the times and marks are turned
in. M. Reinke, '26, has entered the
mile; Freyburg and Feinsinger, year-
lings, will compete in the 440; Finger-
le, '26, will run in the 880; Snider, '26
who has jumped farther than 21 feel
will try to better his .mark in the
broad jump.
Each entrant in the meet will be al-
lowed to participate in three events
and only one of these may be a dis-
tance run. All men garnering three-
points will be awarded their class
numerals. Entries will be accepted
for any event up until 7 o'clock tomor-
row night. All athletes competing
should be on the floor promptly at the
time stated.
Although the fraternity handball
tournament has been 'started, plans
for the event have changed and will
effect all teams that have not played
their first ,game.
A few of the players on the house
teams have been unable to appear at
the handball courts at the time at
which their gamestwere scheduled. The
officials have decided that these teams
shall be permitted an extension of
time in which to complete this round
as the delays have been plainly una-
voidable. The dead line has been set
at 5 oclock, Wednesday afternoon. Any
nlatches in the first round not player'
by that time will be scratched and both
teams automatically eliminated from
the tournament. Each team should
turn scores into the Intramural office
upon completion of their match.
Following are the games in the
first round that remain to be played:
Nu Sigma Nu vs. Theta Delta Chi;
Delta Tau Delta vs. Alpha Delta Phi;
Lambda Chi Alpha vs. Tau Delta Phi;
Phi Kappa Sigma vs. Delta Upsilon;
Delta Chi vs. Phi Chi; Delta Sigma
Phi vs. Phi Gamma Delta, Chi Phi
drew a bye. Any ponficts resulting
from this schedule should be report-
ed to the Intramural department at
In a close and bitterly fought match
Rockwell and Scarnechia defeated
Greene and Sanchez 3-2 for the cham-
pionship of the All-campus handball
doubles tournament yesterday after-
xnoo on the handball court in Water-
nman gymnasium.
The winners won the first two games
of the match by a cse score. Greene
and Sanchez me back however and
copped the next two necessitating a
fifth game to decide the winner. In
the final tilt the champions took on
new life and aided by the failure of the
losers to place their serves in the
early rounds won the deciding game.

A. J. Schultz, '08, U. of D. Grid Mentor
Thinks Gane With Alma Mater
Likely Soon
That Michigan and the University
of Detroit will meet on the gridiron
before the passage of many years was
the belief and the hope expressed yes-
terday by A. J. "Germany" Schultz, '08,
Imember of Walter Camp's All-time
All-American football team, the great-
est guard that ever played under the
tutelage of Coach Yost, and now head
coach of the University of Detroit ag-
Coach Schultz was in Ann Arbor
for the Cornell-Michigah track meet,
He expressed his happiness at return-
ing northward to carry on his work,
for during the past two years he has
guided the gridiron. destinies of- Tu-
lane university, New Orleans. The
fact that the former Wolverine star
was coach at Tulane resulted in the
visit of the southern football team to
Michigan two years ago when, though
it lost to the Yosltmen by a heavy
score, it iut up a splendid exhibition.
Pleased With Prospects
Not only is Coach Schultz pleased
with his geographical location but lie
is optimistic over the prospects for a
good grid year at U. of D. He will
have to build up a new line from one
end to the other, but he is sure to have
a capable backfield.
The one-year residence rule goes in-
to effect at Detroit in September, thus
removing the chief barrier to a 'gamne
with the Wolverines. Coach Schultz
stated, however, that the only open,
date on the Michigan schedule, Octo-
ber 6, was too early in the season for
him to have a team in shape to meet

With no change in the routine of
the daily workouts, the baseball squad
is rapidly.-rounding into fine shape,
so that the first warip day will find the
diamond performers ready for the
more strenuous workouts outdoors.
It is practically impossible for
Coach Ray Fisher to determine the
ability of his respective candidates!
until the squad has worked out on the
grass for several days. Devrieux, Dil-
man and Bockinan continue to show
improvement in the cage but have yet
to meet the outdoor test.
Numerous Twirlers
As yet, nothing extraordinary has
turned up amongst the candidates for
mound duty, but the following men.all
have possibilities of developing as the
season progresses; Mudd, Nooman,
O'Hara, Weede, Shoesmith, Slinger-
lund, Baker, all righthanders, and
Farley and Gibson, lefthanders. Ben-
son, All-frosh last year, is command-
ing quite a bit of attention from
Coach Fisher, while Liverance' re-
mains the mainstay of the squad. Gre-
gory and Slaughter, both sophomores,
round out the catching staff.
The veterans have been kept busy
hitting the horsehide the entire af-
ternoon, and .this method seems to
show encouraging results. All the
oldtimers are knocking the ball about
in mid-season style. Klein, garden ca-
vorter, has especially, shown signs of
improvement over his last year's work
with the stick.
Haggerty, AIh-frosh infielder, is
still out with a bad ankle, which he
injured during the exhibition game
of basketball held for the legislators
during their recent visit.

During more than thirty years I
I of coaching track teams, Coach
I Jack Moakley has met with a lot
of obstacles but he always does
the best he can with what he
has. This year his team has been
lhit by ineligibility and sickness I
but he got together an outfit that I
took a second in the Eastern In-
ter ollegiates. For the last week
and a half he's been drilling his
team for the Michigan meet and
f for a week and a half he's been
so ill with the grippe that he
ought to have been in bed. Little I
wonder he develops the teams
he does. He doesn't give up! C
"Michigan could have made a clean-
up in the intercollegiates this year,
I am firmly convinced," said Coach
Jack. Moakley of the Cornell track
team in an interview .yesterday aft-
ernoon. "The only way any compar-
ison can be ,made between two team
is by comparing the individual ath-
letes but I think the Michigan men
could beat any aggregation in the
East." The coach spoke highly of
lichigan's athletic standing and of
the ability of Steve Farrell, whonl he
has known since they both starred on
the track in their under-,graduate


will do a lot toward getting good ath-
letes to come to Michigan," he said.
The Cornell mentor has been lead-
ing his teams against Michigan since
the days when Keene Fitzpatrick tu-
tored the Wolverines. During that
time he has developed some of the
greatest stars that the track has
known. John Paul Jones who did the
mile in 4:15 and Walker Smith who
ran the hurdles in 15 flat were two
typical products of his coaching. In
1919 he was selected as head coach
to take the American team to the
Olympics at Antwerp and it was due i
great measure to his work that the
games went to the United States in
spite of the poor training conditions.
At the present time Moakley is, to-
gether with Keene Fitzpatrick, now
track -coach at Princeton, the best
coach -in the East.
