Freshman track candidates will com-
pete in a track carnival tomorrow af-
ternoon in the Yost field house under
the direction of Coach Hoyt. These
carnivals will be held each Saturday
as a means of ascertaining the abil-.
ity of the various candidates.
Coach Hoyt is gradually rounding
his men into shape for the first tele-
graphic meet 'which is scheduled to
take place in the near future.
Illinois has been in communication1
with Hoyt concerning a meet and al-
though as yet no definite arrange-
ments have been made it is expected
that a triangular meet between Mich-
igan, Illinois and Wisconsin will be
held some time during March.
The yearling track squad this year is
well balanced and almost every event 1
is well taken\care of by men of more
than usual ability. In the sprints Hoyt
has Sterling, Hester, Northrup and
many others who are capable of step-
ping a fast 50 or 100. In Lasser the
coaches have a man who has already
demortstrated his ability in the low
hurdles and who has more than ex--
tended the Varsity hurdlers.
Northrup and Prout perform consist-
ently in the pole vault and Weekes is
about the best bet in the high jump
event. The best milers are Jung and
Hornberger both who have turned in
some excellent times for the long run.
Lovette and Munns are heaving the
shot a fair distance aiid show promise
of further development.
The squad practices every afternoon
at the Yost field house with the Var-
sity squad and time and again the
yearlings put up a good enough exhib-
ition to make the Varsity tracksters
do some tall stepping.
