sruckOn Week 's Card
Case and Hope Furnish Opposition
for Varsity Basketeers This
Coach Mitchell is grooming his
basketball players for the games this
week-end with Hope and Case, the
former appearing in Waterman gym-
nasium Friday and the latter Saturday
,., -- ,1
The men, who returned to school
Monday, have been workihg out every
afternoon, Mitchell drilling them in
basket-shooting, passing, and plays.
The regular nightly practices will
start tonight, the track team claiming'
-the floor for the aftegnoon.
Mitchell is not expecting' another
setback this week. Hope college has
always turned out some fair basket-
ball teams but the Wolverines, now
running on high gear, ought to prove
more than a match for the team from
the small Michigan school. The game
will afford practice for the men and
will give them experience that will
prove valuable next week when the
big teams on the schedule hit town.
Case will meet a different team than
was met several weeks ago when the
Scientists romped home with a 27 to
25 victory! in their own gymnasium.
The Varsity has been improving stead-
ily and is out to secure a decided re-
venge over the quintet from the Cleve-
Coach Mitchell declared before thej
first Case game that he expected to
trounce that five in January although
he was not so' hopeful in the first
game. The Scientists were lucky to
get away with a win before and the
Wolverine basketeeres are sure they
will not do it again.
The fate of the annual Penn relays
and the eastern intercollegiates hangs
in the balance.
P. G. Bartelme, director of outdoor
athletics, just back .from two meetings
of managers of the eastern schools,
said yesterday afternoon that there is
strong reason to believe the Penn re-
lays, if held at all, will be on a small-
er basis than ever before, while the
intercollegiates will be run without
entries from, several colleges in the
Bartelme attended a meeting of
graduate-managers and directors at
the Hotel Martineque in New York'
last Thursday night, while Prof. Ralph
W. Aigler, chairman of the board in
control of athletics, went with Bartel-
me to a conference of the national
collegiate athletic association at the
Hotel Astor, New York, the next day.
,Favor Athletics During War
The question of intercollegiate ath-
letics was the central point of discus-
sion in both meetings and the concen-
sus of opinion strongly favored athlet-
ics during the period of the war. A
'schedule as usual" slogan met w1;h
favor at both conferences and the let"
ters of Secretary of War Baker and
Secretary of the Navy Daniels, advo-
cating the continuance of athletics,
met with hearty response.
But despite the favorable attitude
toward athletics in general, there did
not seem to be a very strong backing
for the Penn relays and the eastern
intercollegiates, two of the biggest
track events of the college year. Many
colleges, among them Cornell, Penn
State, and Swarthmore, intend closing
early next semester and it .will be al-
mast impossible for them to send
teams to the intercollegiates, which
are held, usually, in the middle of May.
The athletic director of Cornell said
he would try to arrange to send some
men to this meet but he could not
promise a full team nor would he make
any definite statement as to the num-
her of men be could sent. Cornell has;
usually sent the largest contingent to'
the games and has managed to win or
place high every year because of the
number of men entered. The absence
Michigan Not in Intercollegiates
That Michigan would be unable to
send a team to the intercollegiates is
the opinion of P. G. Bartelme, who
said that he did not believe the Wol-'
verines would be represented this1
year. The meets with Chicago and the
Conference contests are about all that
Farrell's men will enter.
All of the directors at the meet-
ing last Thursday said they would doj
their best to send some sort of a rep-
resentation to the Penn relays but
there was no definite assurance thatf
there would be any sort of a team from
their schools. Bartelme said, with the
others, that an effort would be madey
to send some relay team from herel
but he would not make any definite'
predictions either. The' Penn relays
are now awaiting the decision of. two
committees which will meet soon to
decide whether they will be held at
all or not.
It is not unlikely that the Penn re-1
lays will be abandoned while some
similar action is looked for with re-
gard to the intercollegiates.
Army details Its
Mien For Football
You've got to hand it to the army
for mustering football teams in a
business like way.
When there are gridiron stars in
the cantonment who for one reason or
another are nGt playing on the team,l
the commandment simply drafts the
players into the eleven, details them
to that duty-and it's all done.
Such was the fate of Jack Dunn,
star quarterback of the freshman foot-
ball team in the fall of 1914. Jack,
who enlisted in one of the ambulance
units formed here last spring, was at
Allentown this fall during football
season. Because of broken'arches and
several other minor injuries Dunn did
-not want to play football.
His friends prevailed upon him to
go out;, and in the first game Jack
sprained an arm and twisted his
shoulder. He decided his football days
were over, so he turned in his suit.
Monday morning he received an or-
der to report at headquarters.
"You're detailed to play football,
Dunn," said the commandment.
Jack's playing aided the Allentown
aggregation greatly in the two games
played with Eddie Mahan's Marines,
and 16 to 0.
Iowa Service Flag Contains 669 Stars
Iowa City, Ia., Jan. 2.-Measuring
seven by thirteen feet, a service flag
with 669 stars now hangs between the
pillars of the old capitol here, as a
tribute to the men of the student body
and faculty of the University of Iowa
who have entered war service.
The flag was presented by the inter-
fraternity council and was made by
volunteer seamstresses from the home
Prof. C. A. Cumming, head of the art
department, designed the flag, and he
has made an indelible ink stamp with
which to imprint additional stars. The
blue stars are spread uniformly over
the white field, room being left for
the addition of more stars.
