Nearly forty Cornell athletes were
disappointed last Saturday night
when, for the first time in years, no
banquet was tendered them follow-

To make matters emphatically
worse, "'a banquet at the Union" was
- scheduled, on the program which the
visitors were given upon their de-
parture from Ithaca, the information
for which was furnished by the track
management here. TIfe net was
finished before 10 o'clock. 'The Cor-

train home.
Michigan teams are entertained
with a banquet or smoker at Ithaca
every other year and the same custom
did exist in Ann Arbor until this year.
The Union arranged and financed the
affair until two years ago when Blue
Key took it over. The reorganized
Blue Key society attempte'd to handle
the affair this year but could raise no
funds for the purpose.
It is regrettable that the Athletc
association does not make some pro-
vision for defraying the expense of
occasional entertainment for visiting
teams. Michigan teams in various
sports are feted every now and then
yhen they play out-of-town, and not
always by the alumni. -
A banquet in honor of the Cornell
team would have been particularly'
fitting this year considering that
Michigan won. Instead, an annual
custom was broken. The 'Union can-
not be expected to finance such a pro-
