CONSIDER PROGRAM AT
The indications are that most of
the more important intercollegiate
track meetings will be held in 1918.
The I. C. A. A.sA. A. expects to hold
its annual field meeting and the other
associations and conferences will
Some colleges, of course, will not be
represented at all, and teams for
many causes, including the financial
one, will be smaller than usual. But
the meetings will be held. They will
be held, if for no other reason, to stim-
ulate increased participation in regi-
mental, company, class, and dormitory
sports within the colleges themselves.
The germ of intercollegiate athletic
rivalry, though relatively dormant.
has survived even in war time and
the thought that the winners in these
intramural sports will represent the
college in the intercollegiate contests
will give those sports an added inter-
est to the undergraduate.
These intramural sports are devel-
oping in an encouraging way, and
since it is the novices rather than
the champions who need the training
most they will fill a pressing want.
Therefore, more emphasis on the lit-
tle meetings and the vastly reduced
importance of the big ones is the out-
look for 1918.

The newness of the sport on the
Varsity's list was doubtless respon-
sible for the large tulnouts last Fri-
day and Saturday. Once in the gym-
nasium the students sat back and
watched the games apparently una-
ware that it was their team which
was playing on the floor. The players
declare that it is hard enough to meet
experienced teams without having to
go through a game minus the cheer-
ing on the sidelines.
Michigan is making her re-entry in-
to the Conference fold in basketball.
It is vital to the standing and rating
Michigan is to receive that the team
place high in the final standing of
Big Ten quintets. There seems to
be material on hand fo'r a good aggre-
gation but the backing of the campus
is essential to real success.
There is no reason why the Varsity
cheer leaders ought not to be in evi-
dence at basketball games as they are
at football games. It would be well
if we jumped behind the team this
coming week end. The players de-
clare they would feel more impetus
to working with the cheers of the
campus urging them on.
