Several track men succeeded in
gotting a workout between showers
yesterday morning, but the rest of
the squad took a day off. .The spe-
cial quarter mile race, Messner
against Carver, had to be called off
abecause of the non appearance of
Carver. There is a lot of rivalry be-
tween the two runners, and it is
probable that they will have it out
in a day or two. Students in Mr. Carv-
er's math classes are almost sure to
get an "A" if they come out and
cheer their instructor on to victory
over the Varsity athlete.
The Conference meet is looming up
big before the eyes of the veteran
Wolverine track mentor, and his
bunch of tracksters. The team is out
to keep their slate clean and to re-
peat their Big ' Ten indoor victory.
The men realize that they will havej
to go some to win this time, as, the
outside schools entered are almost
sure to take away a lot of points
which would have otherwise gone to
the Maize and Blue.
Missouri Has Good Team
From the advance dope, it appears
that the struggle for first honors will
be between Michigan, Missouri, and
Illinois. Missouri has a strong team
and is coached by a former Wolverine
athlete, H. F. Schultie. The Mis-
sourians won the Missouri Valley,
track championship last Saturday byE
defeating a large field fr1om the-
schools of that district.
Illinois also has improvd since
the last Conference meet. They have

Michigan's Varsity tennis season
came to a close after the Conferenc
tournament at Chicago last week. Al-
though the record made by the racket
men cannot be compared xvith that
made by the baseball team, hard luck
stood in the way of more victories.
Egbert and Hamer who composed
the team both hail from the sunny
state of California, where many big
tennis stars have been made within
the last decade. But althougn they
hailed from the same state, levplay-
ed entirely different styles o: ganim.
Egbert played entirely on the offen-
sive, depending upon his p ) -rful
drives to break through his opponent's
defense. Hamer, on the oflier hand,
used mostly a defensive style, playing
the man on the other side of the net
to lose rather than himself to win.
Team Hard to Beat in Doubles
In the doubles, the two kinds of
play made a hard combination to beat.
and only when the duo va.; ig
badly could the opposing team,; do
anything against it. In th , sagle,
Hamer was the weaker of the t vo.
Although he was practicaliy ure o"
returning anything within reach, oft
en on his easylobs back, nis oppon-
ent would be able to drive the bhall to
the back line out of his reach
Egbert in the doubles would send
his smashes continually at the man
against him, wearing his opponent
down by these tactics. Only when he
was unable to find the top of the net
could an average Varsity player hope
to beat him.
Ohio State et First
The first matches were played
against Ohio State on the Ferry field
courts. There had been continuous
rain up to the day of the meeting and
the two Maize and Blue men had been
unable to get in any practive, before
the tournament. Even on the day
Ohio State was here, the dirt courts
were too soggy to use and the cement;
court was drafted into use. Miehigan1
won, two out of three matches, havin"
no trouble: at all in the doubles, and
losing only -Hamer's singles.1
Chicago Wins.
The Chicago tennis team came down
with their baseball tean, but did bet-
ter than- their school mates. Egbert
had a bad day, driving all of his shots
into the net, and the Maroons won the
tournament two out of three match-f
The return tournament to be play-
ed with Ohio State at Columbus had
to remain unplayed because of rain.
The difference in the ability of the two!
teams, in their playing here, proved
that this, would have meant another
win for the Wolverines if it had been

Coach Lundgren's Conference cham-
pions had an easy time yesterday and
will also be given today to rest up aft-
er their strenuous and successful trip
of the past several days. The game
with Kalamazoo Normal Saturday is
expected to be a rather tame affair
after the battles with Iowa, Chicago,
and Illinois, which in addition to be-
ing with the best teams of the Big
Ten, came in rapid succession.
The Normal beat the Camp Cus-
ter boys, and it was hoped that a line
on the strength of the teachers in
embryo could be obtained when the
Varsity was to have played the sold-
iers Tuesday but Pluvius decided oth-
erwise. The infield is making prepa-
rations to play catch with the out-
field if Ruzicka, Glenn, or Sheidler
does the hurling for the Wolverines.
All except Adams will have the same
opportunity if Saunders works in the
box, Adams being required to make
the putouts when Dutch wants to re-
tire a man with one ball allowing
the Normalites to bunt into his
Came Should Be (good
There is the possibility of a bad
day for the Michigan team, and many
other unforeseen things, which often
play havoc with the best regulated
of ball games, may occur. Coach
Spaulding of the Celery City lads has
turned out many a good team and as
certain as many of the followers of
Lundgren are, at the present time,
that victory will be a niatter of
course, all who have seen other Kal-
ain: , tennis in action are going to
be present at Ferry Field at the us-
ual hour. In spite of the value of
time in preparing for examinations
the game will be at least worth the
hour or two that will be required to
see it.
The Varsity sluggers will have a
bad effect upon the records of
Spaulding's pitchers should they hit,
in anything near the same style they
did on the trip. Adams, Garnett, and
some of the rest of the lower end of
the batting order, who were getting
more ciphers than hits carne through;
at the right moment and timely bin-
gles counted for runs in more than
one case.

Keen minterest is being shown by the
participants in the inter-class tennis
tournament. At present, Bornstein
and Munz seem to have the edge on
their competitor s. These sophomores
play a hard, fast game, and are sure
to prove dangerous to any of their
opponents. Bornstein serves with
speed and accuracy while Munz ap-
pears equally as good. These racquet
artists are scheduled to meet the se-
nior team on Saturday at 9 o'clock
in the finals for the campus cham-
pionship. Wellford and Rings who
compos, this team promise to give
the husky sophomores a scrappy
game. The team winning this match
will receive their class numerals.

Egbert enlisted two months ago, at

the big waiting list, he returned to the
University, to await his call.

Weight Men ,Worry Farrell
Coach Farrell is worrying about
his weight men, as in the last two
meets, the strong men have fallen
down in their work. All of them are
capable of doing better. In the Chi-
cago contest last week, Baker was
unable to throw the lead pellet far
enough to defeat the Maroon shot
putter who was not especially good.
In the Varsity inter-class meet sev-
eral weeks ago, Baker made a throw
which has not been equalled in a
Conference contest this year.
The managing board of the Big
Ten may reverse the recent decision
to allow the javelin only to be thrown
by grasping then spear in the middle,
because of the number of protests
that they have received from several
of the universities entered in the
meet. The ruling is unfair to the
schools because some of the track
coaches let their javelin throwers'
hurl the missle any method, de-
manding only that their men get the
results. Due to the lateness of the
ruling, the men in this event who had
not been throwing according to the
new rule, would have but little time
to change their style.

Michigan Loses on Trip
The next week, Michigan took a trip
to Chicago and Wisconsin. At both
places they were beaten, but at Madi-
son it was due entirely to a cramp in
Egbert's leg. At the Conference tourn-
ament at Chicago on the next Saturday
the two Wolverines proved their sup-
eriority over the Badgers. Against
the Maroons, Michigan had no chance
and were completely outclassed.
The last competition which Egbh ,rt
and Hamer had was in the big tourn-
ament at Chicago last week. This was
won by Chicago, and Pike of that coi-
lege won the singles' championshin k f
the West. Michigan put up a good
showing but was out played by the
Maroons. Egbert, however, gave Pike
the lprdest fight of any of the men in
the Ingles, their match going to four
sets, all hard fought.
