Nearly the entire track squad was
out on Ferry Field yesterday, work-

the cold weather. The rain of the

points in future meets. Messner, a!
quarter miler, and Haigh, high jump-
er, were working out In this event
yesterday performing in good shape
for the first try in clearing the bar.
Steve said that either man, if he keeps
up the form displayed, should make
a'good understudy for Cross.
Weight Men Begin Work
The Wolverine track mentor has
started his weight men to work. In
the outdoor meets the 'hammer throw
and the discus will be added to the
list of events. In Baker and Lind-
strom, the coach has two good heav-
ers in the shot, but Steve is at a loss
to find a hammer thrower. Coach
Farrell said yesterday that if there
were any strong men in the school, he
would welcome them down at Ferry
F'ield with open arms. The track boss
hinted that it would be a good chance
for some last year's big football men
to show some of their strength.
Haigh Tries Hammer-Throw
Haigh was doing a little hammer
throwing during the practice session
yesterday but he is still new at the,
game. Steve in commenting on
Haigh's work, :said that there was a
strong possibility that his star high
jumper might develop into an all-
around athlete. In the discus event
Coach Farrell will have his two 'shot
throwers, Lindstrom and Baker, both

Championship matches in the three I
divisions of the. all-campus wrestling
tournament still undecided will be
held this afternoon at 2:30 o'clock in
the wrestling room of Waterman gym-
The heavyweight finalists are E. F.
Lewis, '19M, and L. S. Crane, '18E.
This match is sure to be hard-fought,
for these two men met in the heavy-
weight class last year and after a bit-
ter contest Crane gained a decision.
However, 'ewis is hoping to turn the
tables on his rival in today's en-
I. G. Cook, company B, Second regi-
ment, will meet J. C. McClure com-
pany I, First regiment, for the cham-
pionship in the lightweight class.'
Both of these men are new in campus
wrestling circles,1but from the work
they have done thus far in this year's
tournament a good, stiff match is as-
Pollock Ought to Win
L. L. Pollock, last year's welter-
weight champion, will meet R. H.
Jones, company A, Second regiment,
in the finals in the middleweight class.
#Pollock is a grappler of particular
ability and Jones will have to exert
superhuman efforts to beat him.
However, it is thought that Jones will
give his adversary a stiff fight. .
The heavyweight is bound to .at-
tract the most attention, partly be-
cause the fans always like to watch
the heavies in action, -and partly be-
cause both men are known on the ca-
Apus by the workthey did lastyear.
Lewis was runner-up in the middle-
'weight division a year ago and Crane,
obtained the same position in the
keavy class.
Silveracups will be given the win-
ners of today's natches and the run
ners-up' will receive numeraled
wrestling trunks. The judges will be
0. P. Lambert; last year's heavyweight
champion, and J. W. Planck. R. J.
Knapp will officiate as timekeeper,
and F. D. Reider will act as referee.

Many='big league stars, including Ty
Cobb, Tris Speaker, Joe Jackson, Ben-
ny Kauff, and Hans Wagner are going
to do their bit this summer with the
Amercian troops in Lorraine, France,
and they won't have to leave the big'
league either.
These long distance hitters are go-
ing to lend thgir names to a series of
19,000 swat sticks which are now on
the way'to the American front as part
of the athletic equipment for the Sam-
mies. These bats are in 12 models,
the most popular of which will prob-
ably be the Ty Cobb pattern, although
Speaker, Collins, and Kauff styles will
no doubt find plenty of welcoming
There is a great demand for ath-
letic equipment in the camps and the
Sammies have been supplied with
numerous articles including thous-
ands of baseballs, gloves, bats, foot-
balls, indoor balls and bats.
The order of bats which is now be-
ing sent is part of an order placed
last 'January when a campaign for the
collection of paraphernalia was start-
ed by the Y. M. C. A.
Burns Glad to Go to Athletics
Detroit, April 2.-When announce-
(ment was made that First Baseman
George Burns of the Tigers had been
sent to the Philadelphia Athletics,
friends here recalled that he was anx-
ious to get away from here.
It was known that Burns and Jen-
nings did not get along very well.
Burns claimed that the manager
"rode" him continually last season
during his batting slumps and that he
was benched so often that he lost con-
fidence in himself.
However, there may be another rea-
son, and that is that Burns has always,
been anxious to wear a Philadelphia
uniform. His home is in Tioga, a part
of North Philadelphia, and it is said:
that ever since he left there to play in:
the minors, he has had a longing to
get back.

Have You Seen the New Gillettes
Special1'y, D-fesi#gned)for the Fighting Man?
EESEmodels were designed by members of
the Gillette Organization who have seen
service with the Colors and know what the sol-
dier is up against.
Hundreds of officers and men are buying
them-the U. S. Service Set in metal case, and
the new Khaki-covered sets for Uncle Sam's
soldiers and officers.
The Gillette is the one razor for the man
who is doing things-the one razor with world-
wide use and reputation.
When a man wants new Blades he can get
themat any Post Exchange or Y. M. C. A. Hut
--here in America or Overseas.
Our Paris Offiec carries stocks-is constantly
supplying the Amr:erican Expeditionary Forces.
Gillette Safety Razors and Blades on. sale
everywhere in rance, England, Italy and the
Eastern battle fronts.

Why the Gillette Is Especially the Soldier's Razor


HERE isn't a harder shaving job on
earth than the service demanded Qf the Gil-
lette by the fighting man.
Under the very worst possible conditions
of climate-with cold or hard water-on
sun-burned or wind-chapped faces-the Gil-
lette is called upon for its solid-comfort, vel-
vet-smooth shave. And delivers it.

There are more Gillettes used than all
other kinds of razors added together-the
compact, complete razor with no strops or
hones to clutter up the kit.
Hundreds of thousands of officers and
men have adopted the Gillette-with its
blades always sharp, always ready. No
Stropping, No Honing.
