SPEED BALL AMONG
WORLD'S FASTEST;
SPORTING EVENTS 1
One of the new games which in-
coming students will soon become
acquainted with through their ac-
tivities in Intramural Sports is
Speedball. This game, which is a
combination of football, basketball
and soccer, originated here at Mich-
igan in 1921 and as a result has,
spread all over the country and is
being used by many universities
and colleges as an Intramural ac-
tivity.
Combines Three Sports
Speedball is liked because it per- I
mits footwork, handwork, and
headwork-all three. Speedball has
borrowed the most desirable fea-

FALL SPORTS PROGRAM

TO GIVE GOLD MEDALS
Three afternoons of this week
will be devoted to recreational ac-1
tivities for the new students. To-
day at 3:30 some 22 groups which
have been assigned, will report to
the intramural building. These
groups will meet in the large gym-
nasium where they will be given
programs and instructions con-
cerning the afternoons' programs.;
Following this perioc a tour of
inspection will be made, taking in
the Intramural Building, Ferry
Field and Yost Field House. From
this trip everyone will go to South
Ferry Field for inter-group baseball
games.
Groups to Split
Immediately after the ball games,
which will probably end about 5:00 -
o'clock, the groups will split up and
everyone will go to the many indi-
vidual sport events. There will be
the swimming meet at the Intra-.
mural pool, tennis matches at the
courts on Ferry Field, and rifle
shooting also on Ferry Field, in-
side the wall. Individuals interest-
ed in golf will return to the large
intramural gymnasium and pair-
ings will be made. Coach Keen will
be in the wrestling rooms at the in-
tramural building to meet all men
interested in this sport. Likewise,
Coach Let Philbin will be on hand
at the boxing room, intramural'
building, to give instructions or to
take the names of men interested1
in future instructions.I
Tournaments Scheduled
Six horseshoe courts at the west
end of the intramural building will
be the scene of the annual horse-
shoe tournament. At the handball)
and squash courts there will be
tournaments. The Michigan Union
will be the scene of a bowling tour-
nament for which there is no fee.
In the auxiliary gymnasium of the
intramural building there will be
instructors for gymnastics and
fencing. At Yost Field House all
Freshmen interested in football will
have an opportunity to meet with
one of the coaches.
Offer Prize Meals
Every tournament that is con-
ducted will be run on each of the
three days of Orientation Week,
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
The winners of each of these days
will be paired with other winners
and this will continue for the next
two weeks until there is a final
winner in each and every event.
To the winner and runner-up of
each event there will be presented a
gold medal. The champion rifle
shot will, in addition to the medal,
receive a rifle, the gift of the R. O.
