BUT TWO MEETS ARRANGEI) FOR
VARSITY TRACK TEAM;
BOTH AT CHICAGO
Michigan's baseball team will
play 11 Conference games next spring
and the Varsity track team will hook
up in two dual meets, one indoors
and one on the cinder track, accord-
ing to the schedules just made by P.
G. Bartelme in Chicago.
Both of the track meets which the
Wolverines will enter are with Chi-
cago and will be held in the Windy
City. The indoor meet comes March
16 and the outdoor competition will
be held May 25. No other meets have
been arranged as yet, but it is be-
lieved that Farrell's men will also
enter the Conference field meet to be
held some time next spring.
Whether Bartelme will secure oth-
er dual meets or not is unknown at
the present time. It is understood
that the Michigan athletic manager is
trying to secure a couple more in-
door meets and at least one more race
outdoors. The Wolverine tracksters
will have plenty of work, though, in
downing the Maroon team twice in
Season Opens April 15
The baseball season with Conference
nines opens April 15 when Lundgren's
men will travel to Bloomington to
meet the Indiana ball tossers. On
May 3 and 4 Chicago will play the

contest of the series being played at
Chicago on May 25. The last Big
Ten team that 'Michigan will face is
Ohio State, the game being scheduled
for Ann Arbor.

here while one game will be staged in
each of the following places: Bloom-
ington (Indiana); Chicago, (Chicago);
Iowa City (Iowa); Columbus, (Ohio);
and Urbana (Illinois).,
There are many opportunities for
games with other schools and the con-
tests usually played with Cornell,
Penn., M. A. C., and.Kalamazoo college
will doubtless be held. It is expect..
ed that the annual tilts with Pennsyl-
vania at Commencement time will be
played as usual.

Saturday and will leave within a few
weeks for a training camp.
All four of the men entered their
applications some time ago and were
called in for a final axamination last
week end. They passed the tests,
which are very heavy for this branch
of the service, with flying colors, and
all were enlisted at once.
Wieman, who is elected captain for
the 1918 eleven, will leave for his
home in California some time today
and will not return after the holidays.
He does not expect to be called until
the middle of January and will stay
at home until he is summoned for

Some questions have arisen con-
cerning the ineligibility of Lam-
bert, Varsity center, for the
Northwestern game last Novem-
ber. It has been said that the
star pivot man was down in his
studies. To clear up the situa-
tion, it should be said that, Lam-
bert was kept from the Purple
tilt because he had played his
limit of football under' the Con-
ference rules. Lambert is far
from being behind in his studies.
