Exhibition May 6

A brisk wind that chilled everyone
on Ferry Field yesterday afternoon
prevented Coach Harry Kipke and
his protegees from doing much ex-
cept warm up on blocking and signal'
fundamentals. The Coach had one
of his star cameramen "shooting"
members of the squad with a cinema
kodak as they punted, blocked, and
ran in their best form. "Kip" plans
to use the pictures in improving and
ironing out the bad points in the
form and action of each player.
The remainder of this week will
be devoted to drill on fundamentals
and scrimmage, but next week the
squad will put its effort towards the
exhibition to be given on Ferry Field
along with the track meet on May 6.
On this date a morning practice ses-
sion will be public, and a game be-
tween divisions of the squad in the
stadium will feature the afternoon's

Campus Sports 30 Years Ago
Were PopularAmong Students

In comparison with the some twen-
ty-odd intramural sports popular on
the Michigan campus today, only
three held much importance here 30
years ago.
The man who has seen over eight
college generations of freshmen pass
through his hands and furnished us
with an interesting story about ath-
letics 30 years ago is Dr. George A.
Only three sports were popular on
this campus then, these being foot-
ball, track, and baseball. Of these
sports, men students could take part
in either of two fields, the varsity or
the interclass games. There was no
form of the Intramural activities
that are prevalent on the Michigan
campus today.
Football and baseball were the
most popular of the sports and both.
varsity and interclass games were at-!
tended by many students and towns-I
people. In football, many teams were
formed, one for each class in each
of the Lit. Medical, Dental, Engineer-
ing, and Law schools.
Talk about football in the good
days should bring back to the mem-
ories of the old grads or whoever
were students at that time the co-
menorable grid battle in 1903 be-
tween the Laws and the Engineers,

in which the long run for a touch-
down by Archie Hahn of the Laws
was the incidental cause for a fight
right there on the field between the
both classes that put an end to the
annual game.
Another of the grid frays that
caused much excitement in Ann Ar-
bor and pulled large crowds was the
Annual Soph-Frosh game which not
infrequently never reached the end
of the allotted time and saw some
minor incident precipitate a bloody
battle between the two underclasses.
Coach "Hurry-up" Yost, present
University athletic director, who at
that time, was young in the experi-
ences of Michigan athletics, would
often referee the class games.
Baseball, although not attended to
with the hilarious excitement that
characterized football, nevertheless
was popular and drew as many teams
and students for participation. Each
spring, managers were out early get-
ting their teams in condition. Large
crowds of onlookers saw the games
and made the days of the games
In track, the important student
event. was the annual cross-country
run sponsored by the Michigan Cross
Country Club, in which the first five
to finish were awarded "C. C. C.'s"
and given ribbons."
