.. Following the performance of the
'e West Point captain who showed re-
et markable bravery in No Man's Land
as recently, and captured a few Germans
single handed, it has been rumored
- that the Germans themselves are look-
ou ing for the persons wh'o spread rum-
the ors about kaiserland that "those
st Yankees couldn't fight."
The Germans have perhaps sub-
itor dued Russia. They've struck some-
ge11 thing easy. When von Hindy attempts
- to start something on the west front
Jr.n he's going to bump into the Big
ley It is but natural to suppose that
- some of that indemnity the Germans
ger will collect from the Russians will
ge be used to help along their cause in
- this country.

STAR TRACK AGGREGATION WIN-
NING HIGH CONFERENCE PLACE
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
Shortly before Christmas "Steve"
Farrell issued a call to all men in the
University interested in track ath-
letics to appear at Waterman gym-
Since the call's issuance Coach Far-
rell, with less than a dozen men, jour-
neyed to Urbana where the track
team won first place, and a Michigan
man won the greatest number. of
This carnival is considered the sec-
ond biggest indoor track event staged
by Conference schools. One would
hardly think it, from the amount of
space given the event in The Daily
prior to the announcement of victory.
Many students didn't know until last
Wednesday morning that Michigan
was to take part in so important a
meet. Three big schools and many
small ones entered, held "pep" meet-
ings -the night before theiroteams de-
parted. Last year special wires con-
nected the larger cities of the west,
and the events and winners in each,
were announced as they occurred.
Isn't it a handicap to Michigan stu-
dents and their spirit when something
in the way of "dope" is not given them
Many Conference events are iinfa-
miliar to Michigan students. It should
be 'the duty of The Daily to throw
light on them. The real importance
does not rest with the relay carnival
but with the track team. 'I[ venture
to say that not more than a dozen stor-
ies have appeared in The Daily since
Farrell issued his first track call. For
since Farrell issued his first call. For
weeks a score of men have been train-
ing and have reached the point where
they can whip any track team in the.
Conference, yet not much of this has
come to the student body through The
Daily, If The Daily won't give- track
.atheltics.at Michigan any space how
can we expect outside papers'to do so?
If Illinois, Chicago, Northwestern,
or Minnesota had a track team equal
to Michigan's, one can't imagine a
day going by that some Chicago or
Detroit paper would not contain an
account of the team's progress.
If it is a matter of space with The
Daily wouldn't it be better to keep
out some of the personal slander that1
FIRST CALL FOR SPRING
There will soon be a 'demand for
students to help with the spring gard-
ening. The Employment Office de-
sires to furnish the best available stu-
dent help for this work, but this can-
not be done unless there is a close co-
operation between the employers and
the Employment Office.
The Employment Secretary should
be promptly notified of any cases of
overcharging, unsatisfactory work, or
failures to appear. Only in this way
can we determine which students give
Remember, too, that we cannot se-
lect good student help on ten minutes
notice. Put in your call the day be-
fore. Our office hours are 1-2, and 4-6,
p. m. daily, and Saturday, from 8-11.

has appeared about our athletes, and
devote this space to giving the track
team what is due it?
Perhaps there is not a state in
which Mich-igan fans do not scan sport
pages for something about Michigan's
athletics. Here we have an excellent
team shoved into the background to
make room for some local event hav-
ing no interest to people outside of
In talking to a Chicago sports edi-
tor, he stated that space was open,
but he must rely on student publica-
tions for material. Many stories ap-
pearing in papers, about other schools'
athletics can be traced directly to
If the track team were weak or of
little interest some excuse might be
offered, but with a team stronger than
that of any other Conference school,

ern championship this year an in-

school and public when it is slighted.

The puddles to avoid,

She knew she'd be annoyed.

Because she chanced to hear

March past her very near.

But still her eyes would roam,
Boo-hoo for her-her footie slipped--
