making a final test. While the Ohio

'Ten honors on June 1 and 2. With
heart-breaking Illinois meet. a
ng of the past, the only thing theI
ni will receive from Steve is strict -
ining. A possible 2r points is what
dopesters have for, a basis in the
ference meet. These points come
rg five first places and are purely1
oblematical. It m~ust be remember- I
that five places will count, first
ce five points, secon~d place three'

That Ohio State may have in the!1

bful question. Bpni Petcoff, cap,

t single hfght biut its seems that com-
Iparatively few of. these' dazzling per-
formers fail to tire of the grind aft-l
er emerging from the actual glory of
1 compretition and remain in the fightl
after leaving college.' But this can
Entbe said of Trafford N. Jayrle,.'89L,
former' Varsity thlete. His case is
nothing short of marvellous, accord-
ing to physicians, as he' cani boast'
of being in better physical condition
I than nine out of ten men his juniors
, by 25 --ears.
'This defies the theory of most ddct-
ors who claim that a man's vitality.
and energy begin to go down, hill aft-
cr the' age of 38 or 40 is reached.
While attending the University. of
Michigan Jayne established a wonder-I
ful career as a baseball player , and
was swarmed continually with. scouts
and ;others who offered inducementtto
secure his talents for~ professional
1teams. "Traff" played centerfield, f
first base, and,, caught for the Wozl- 1
verines. It is claimed by many Who.

t that Jayne 'established a batting rec-
ord that never 'has been equalled byv
any orner Michigan p layer when 'he
batted 52 during the, season of '1881

Maize:'and Blue. "Traff" also won
aile +ntercollegiate tennis champion-}.

LJayne won the Northwestern doubles
championship in .1893.. and 1".5 and
repeated in 1898 with George K.' Beld-
on as a partner. reamel with John I
Wheeler, Jayne won the state tennis
doubles championship :in 1903, 19051
and 1910. In '1913', jurst 24 years' after1

Jayne, teamed with Seiforde Stetlwag-}

championship of the Rled River Valley
tennis tournaments in..'U2, 1913 anidl
1914, also winning, the state cham-
pionship i 1914. In 1916., this samo
pair won the doubles ehampionship of
the Northwestern Lawn 'Tennis associ-
ation. He repeated 'with Phil Brain
ia 1929. Jayn~e and Brain .proved thatf
they, were. still; in the fray. when they

'tion "Traff"' has bowed to defeat on
on only five occasions. He hell the
city orf Minneapolis chamnpionship oiin-
tit 1919 when he w0i3 forced to concede
defeat to' Percy Wllo;dy
"I owe mny long athletlc career anrd
present physical fitnes~ to the fact
that I never used alcohol or tobicco
in any form," says Mr. Jayne. "Also
I; have never overtaxed, myself. I
always have been a firm believer that
one should quit exercise before he-
coming fatigued. .Many athletes make
the m~istako of grinding away until
they are exhausted. That sort ofT ex-
ercise does more harm than good."
Specs ,No Handicap
To© Ed---And More'


Ever so often some college pro-
duces a bespectacled athlete. Last
'winter, fans saw a basketball player
wearing glasses in action, and last,
fall a football player .Wore his glasses
under a wire 'irame and was not
'hindered in the least. This. year
Michigan; posses'~es one -of those rare
individuals, a "four-eyed" athlete, in
Eddie Gibson, diminutive pitcher who
has twice this season ,held the pow-
erful Iowans at bay, with his south-
paw, delivery.
Even in' the major, leagues there is'
seldom an athlete 'wearing glasses
during a game. At the present time,
among all the regulars of the 16 big
league baseball teams, but two men
wear the. crystals. One is Lee "Specs"
Meadows, regular hurler for the Phil-
aledphla. Nationals, and the other is
"Toppy" .Torporcer, premier second
baseman of the St. Louis team of the
same circuit. Meadows has never4 ad-
mitted being burdened' unduly by his
his rimny, anda Torporcer's batting and
fielding record for the time ' he has
been in the big show, proves that the
p~feppery keystone guardian has~ not
been slowed up. On the contrary,,
"Toppy's" good luck is, so he claims,
due. entirely to hi's' extra pair of eyes.
Eddie Gibson hias not yet; shown
anything that would lead one to think
he is stopped by his defect.. His
friends say that he can not tell when
a ball Is, on its wav towards him until r
it is. within a. distance of 10 feet. Con-
'siderIng the.'fact that ,Eddie, has been
wearing glasses for at least: 10 years,
and t hat he. pitched for his -high
school team° in Sarnia, Ont., for, the.
entire four years, it is' likely that, he
has become fully accustomed to his
handicap., Eddie,' at present,' is tle'
one and only, baseball player, in the
BPig T64~ wh6 trots onto the field' with
the advantage of two more eyes. He
is slated to do the. mound work In'
the Minnesota game on Saturday.

Swith good marks in the high jum~p,
broad jump, and the pole vault.
In' spite of the great ' number : of
athletes 'entered in this. year's meets
the 1'reaking of reco'rds' in the various
events ought to 'prove exceedingly
difficult 'u'nl'ess 'some on'e pel oiris
phenomenally. The present records 1i
practically every event on the pro-
gain have stood' for. years. and, hav~e
been made by meni who later became
stars of national repute. The ,100
yard dash has been run three times
in 10 flat, the lash~ time in 1913. The
fast times of 1a a4 in the, high hurdles
and' 24:4 seconds in the low hurdles
are two other records that are likely
to stand, while a mark of 21 2-5 sec-
onds in the 220' yard dash has re-
mained Intact since the spring of 1914.
;The' shot lput' record of 50 feet, 4 in-
ches, established in 19a7 by Homner
of Grand Rapids who later came to
,Michigan' anA established. a world's
record, is considered unbeatable by l
any high school weight man of the.
present dtay.° Frank Foss's vault of 12
feet, 5-8 inches and Pattersbn's high'
jump of 6 feet 1 1-4 inches are two
oather marks hard to equal. Hohler's
hamm'er .throw of 170 feet 3~ inches
'and' Cook's' broad jump of 23 feet 5
inches add another groan to the list
of records that Is bound to exasper-
ate any prospective title holder Ini
the present meet. Other lote times
which have been made, in the past '
and which are likely to hold good for
some time to come are 1:56 flat in
the' half mile and 4:33 1-5 In the mile
The order of events beginning a.t
2:00 o'clock this afternoon is as fol-
lows: 100 yard: dash trial heats, 120
yard hurdles trial 'heats, 440,,yard ,run,
trial heats, 220. yard dash trial heats,
220 yard hurdles 'trial. heats, half

Tuesday. Mather has his hands full
in trying to get the squad. into Fshape,
and to weed out the poorest of the
candidates from the good material, He
has only five weeks altogether to 'whip
the men into some semblance of a'
team, and a great deal of this' time
has already been taken up in select-I
ing. the best material, and the inter-I
ference. of rain anid varsity :gamnes
have also-,cut down. on the time.
There is some good-looking mtr
mae-ial on' this year's squ~ad, but there,
is probably more that canl be 'develop-
ed in th future. At'the present there
are a }number who seem. to have,,.ar-
sity possibilities. White, shortstop,.
Covers a. great: deal of groufid" and, is.
fast on the paths,- but is' not much of
a hitter, Gerringer, thirdbase, covers
his territory: well, is' fairly, fast, and
is a nice hitter; Cherry, catcher, can
hit, play his 'position ticc6tably, and
is very fast for a4,atcher.
Willson, -a lanky first sacker, looks
good at his position; and takes a nice
cut at the -balI. Hart, at first, Park-
em on second, and Van Buren at short
have good possibilities, but there
seems to be a, scarcity of good out-
fieldig' mater"ial. Gillingham appears
to. be the pick of the hurlers, while
'Walters and Hinckley, have shown
good stuffs
Some good men have probably been
cut, and some poorer men retained,
