More material for the Varsity swim-
ming squad, especially in the breast
stroke, back stroke, and plunge, is
expected to be uncovered in the all-
campus swimming meet at 3:30
o'clock, Saturday afternoon, at the
Y. M. C. A. pool.'I
There is a decided lack of men in
these particular events for the ac-
quatic team and much care will be
exercised to get any possible candi-,
dates from the men who will compete
in the meet for these positions.
Coach Little says that the men onj
the squad are showing ra fine spirit
in training under the conditions that
exist at the present time without the
use of the Union pool and that some
of them will be able to make good
marks in the coming meets with
other schools. However, he adds.
there is a decided lack of capable sub-
stitutes or men who might develop into!
stars with good coaching.
The officials in charge of swimming
are sparing no effort in getting the
best coach that can be found for
Michigan. Announcements will prob-
ably be made the latter part of next
week concerning just who will coach
the team this winter.
Entries for the meet can be made at
the Intramural office any time from
now until the time of the meet, 3:30
o'clock, Saturday afternoon. Numerals
and sweaters will be awarded to the
men scoring five points in their events
and a silver loving cup will be award-
ed to the man garnering the highest
number of points.

game against Notre Dame, the Ath-1
letic Association is promoting an ice
carnival Saturday night at the Wein-
berg Coliseum.
The game of course will be the main
feature of the program and a lively'
contest is looked for. The Irish have
captured the Western hockey champ--
ionship for the past two years and
this year they come to Ann Arbor
with a crew of puck chasers that are
determined to maintain the standard
of former Notre Dame rink teams.
Michigan on the other hand will be
p aying somewhat at a disadvantage.
Coach Barss has not been able to send
j his charges through .a good practice
since he made the last cut. The ex-
tremely poor condition of the ice at
the Coliseum has been responsible for
i this and since no other rink has been
j available the men have had to lay off
' Up to date the main stress has been
put upon the fundamentals of the
game with passing and guarding as
the chief points of attention. Although
the men have been put through sev-
eral scrimmages no real -effort has
been made as yet to develop team-
work to the fullest degree and the loss
of the rink for last night's practice
was a serious detriment to the success
of the team on Saturday night.
With only two days before the first
game Coach Barss expects to drive his
men at a faster' clip than usual in anI
