Since entering track competition in
1893, Michigan has won 14 major
western track and field meets, or
meets similar to the Conference
championships of today. In 1896 and
1917 major western track meets were
snot held, and during the years 1907
through 1916, Michigan competed in
major eastern meets instead of west-
ern. Thus in 21 years of western coin-
petition, Michigan has won the high-
est honors 14 times.
From 1893 through 1900, Michigan
won first place five times, second
once, and third once, in Western In-
tercollegiate meets. This organiza-
tion was similar to the Western Con-
ference today and was composed of
a few of the larger schools and many
small schools, but entries to its meets
were not restricted to schools who
were not members.
The Western Inte ollegiate Confer-
ence broke up in 1900 because a*ium-
ber of the smaller school combined
to elect officers of their own choosing..
In 1901, the Western Conference es-
sentially as it is, today came into
From 1901 through 1906, Michigan"
won first place in the Intercollegiate
Conference meets five times .and sec-
ond the other. During the years 1907
through 1916, Michigan withdrew from
the Western .Intercollegiate meets to
take part in the Eastern Intercolleg-
iate meets. In the East, the Maize]
and Blue athletes were able to takeI
second place once, third place five,
times, fifth place once, and sixth -placej

threetimes, in the Eastern champion-
It was in the Penn Relay races -that
the Wolverines ranked supreme dur- 1
ing the years 1905 through 1908, and
in 1910 and 1911, they had the "best
record of any entry.,,
In1908, at the Penn games, Michi-
# gan -won both the four mile and two
mile relays, the former by default be-
cause of previous performances of
Michigan athletes in that event.
In 1917, the entire outdoor schedule
of the track team was cancelled be-
cause of the war. In 1918, Michigan
again entered the Conference cham-
pionships, and since then, the Wol-
verines have won the highest honors
four times.

BOSTON, Jan. 16.-Another world
championship \has been dangled be-
fore the eye of the American athlete.
With the adoption of professional
hockey by three American cities the
Stanley Cup, emblem of world su-
premacy in the ice game, becomes the
objective of hockey clubs in the United
States. The donor of the cup was a

Boston entered a team in the Na-

experiment proved successful and this
season New York and Pittsburgh fol-
For many years hockey has been
played in various parts of the United
States and especially the northern
fringe touching the Canadian border.
That the success of the game does
not depend upon a cold climate is
shown by the fact that the Victoria
team has not natural skating.
