Notice To Tryouts'.. .
"NOW IS THE TIME for all good men to come to the aid of their party."
. Join the sports staff and see the world. In fact every known detail
of that section of the globe which describes a straight line between the
Publications Building, Yost Field House and points south. See the world
via shank's ponies, otherwise known as the dogs. The sport staff needs
men,.or so the women's staff has been telling us for years. Qualifications?
Two more brains than a professional wrestler, some ability to murder his
majesty's English, and a pair of feet that will not wear, crack, warp or
blister. Tryouts should also have fairly good vision. If the vision is
defective, apply at Yost Field House for a referee's position.
FOR THE REGULAR EDITORIAL STAFF subtract one brain from the
head and several blisters from the feet. Tryouts should report this
afternoon at four in the Publications Building. For some time the editorial
and sport staff tryouts will be together during a short course of training
cinder the editorial staff. After this period the sports staff will redeem
its own men and try to kick out of them most of the things they have
learned during the training grind. If you come out for the sports staff,
don't let these characters on the editorial staff swerve you from your
Marks ..Feet Okay? ? ?
YOUR GRAMMAR FOUNDATION should be fairly good, and you should
have sufficient appreciation of sport to pronounce the game with North-
western as fairly good football and to enjoy the exhibition of basketball
put on last Monday night. Beyond this in the realm of sports you do not
haye to go, All else will come to you. You must be willing to work hard
and reliability should be your keynote. Yqur marks should be as good as
your feet are tough. Working on the sports staff is almost equally hard,
on marks and feet. Don't come out for the sports staff with either border-
line marks or borderline feet.
THERE IS SATISFACTION in sport staff work, especially for those
inclined to creative writing. We offer 'you the thrill of your first signed
story (all in the due course of time), than which thrill there is none greater,
so help me. We offer you the opportunity of meeting Michigan's coaches
who really are a group of fine fellows even though they are sorely tried
and show dispositions remotely similar to a chow dog's at times. We offer
you also the opportunity of assisting in recording the continuity of Mich-
igan's great athletic tradition, second to none in the country-the thrill
of writing up another Michigan victory, the opportunity of really learning
what "The Victors" means. "Go west," young man, go west," and stop at
the; Publications Building. But don't forget for an instant that you are
letting yourself in for some work!
(With profound apologies to fraternity brother Al Newman, who wrote
the. above appeal when I was a verdant freshman).

Gophers Arrive Saturday
The Minnesota squad will arrive in
Ann Arbor Saturday to clash with the
Wolverines that night in the next to
the last home meet of the present
season. The meet is slated to start at
8:30 p.m. in order that fans who are
so inclined may attend both the track
meet with Ohio State and the swim
battle with the Gophers.
The Varsity is rated a strong fa-
vorite over the Minnesota tankers but
the long train trip to and from Iowa
City may tell on Matt Mann's squad.
The Gopher squad has few outstand-
ing stars but has a well-rounded
group of swimmers and should pro-
vide a good battle for the Varsity.
