Juvenile Pocket Billiard Star
To Give Exhibition


iL -



Harold Wirsing
Picked by Willie Hoppe as a future champion, Harold Wirsing, juv-
enile pocket-billiard player of Flint, will give an exhibition at 7:30 o'-
clock toiorrow night in the Union billiard room.
This youngster of 13 is the junior state, billiard champion and in his
various tours throughout the state has shown unusual ability at the cue
game. He has made runs of 63, 56, and 49, and considering the fact that
he started playing the game only 18 months ago it seems probable that
there; are grounds for Hoppe's prediction of championship laurels for the
boy. Wirsing is about to start an Eastern- tour and has manager, William
Kollar has arranged contests with many youthful billiard proteges of that
section of the country.
At Philadelphia the young star is to meet Willie Maconus, claimant of
the juvenile billiard championship cf the country. This match is but one
of the many that Kollar believes will eventually bring to his protege the
title of national junior pocket-billiards champion.
Wirsing's opponent in the exhibition Thursday night will be a prom-
inent Ann Arbor billiardist and cue enthusiasts are assured of an evening
of skillful pocket-billiards.

Ann Arbor, Aich., Jan. 8.-Fresh from
a three-week vacation in Georgia and
Tennessee, Fielding H. Yost, head of
athletics at the University of Michi-
gan, reached his office yesterday and
plunged- into, a detail of work inci-
dental to the opening of the Yost
field house.
Yost made 1-1 adresses when in the
South, the most important before the
gathering of- the Professional Coaches
Association at Atlanta.
With all the other schedules of the
University filled for the year, one of
the first problems for the director
will be to find; a suitable baseball op-
ponent- for the annual commencement
week games. Last year the University
of Washington was victor in the one
game lost by Michigan throughout the
season in the commencement games.
Thus far neither Yost nor Ray
Fisher, baseball coach, has reached a
conclusion as to the possible section
from which a suitable opponent can
be selected.
Sullivain Issues
Call For Boxers
Although there is a considerable
number of mat artists training for the
coming boxing show, which will be
'held early in Mar.ch, Coach Sullivan
notes that a number of the veterans
of last year's team have not returned
for practice since the holidays.
Training is necessary for all box-
ers, as the results of this fall's classes
show, where the men in the best con-
dition were almost always certain to
win over the more experienced men,
who knew more about the game at the

Numeral jerseys will be presented to

a better chance for the prizes all
"aMa" and "M" swimming men are to
be barred from- competition. It is
hoped that Saturday's affair will bring
to light men who might possibly de-
velope into Varsity material.'
Efforts are being made to interest
the students and get them to present
themselves as candidates for the Var-
sity squad.
One of the feature events in the
meet is the relay race. Each team is
to be made. up of. four men and each
man is to swim twice the Yength of
the pool. These relay teams may be
made of any four students. Class and
fraternity affiliations are to be disre-
garded and by this means men who
might otherwise be ineligible for such
an event can participate.

No entrance fee will be demand-
ed of contestants. To those men who
wish to practice the "Y" pool will be
available any afternoon this week aft-
er 3:30 o'clock. The list of events for
the meet includes the 40, 100, and 220
yard free style, the 40 yard back-
stroke, the plunge, and the relay.
