y Saturday.
e Bornstein and Sullivan are two men
e who are evidencing interest in the
Varsity squad. The former has al-
ready been out, and the latter has
promised to appear in a day or two.
a Both of these men are valuable ad-
s ditions to the tennis squad.
Several juniors and freshmen have
g reported to Manager Hamer during the
t past two days that they were inter-
ested in an inter-class tournament,
e and many have indicated that they were
willing to sign up for matches. Hamer
e can be secured by phone at 691 and
e wishes that anyone thinking of en-
tering the tournament would get in-
touch with him. Whether or not such
a series of matches will be put on
depends on the number of entries
e m'ade during the next few days. There
is plenty of talent on the campus that,
would make such an affair interesting
e and insure some good matches.

Coach Farrell was greeted yester-
day by the largest turnout of track
athletes that he has had so far this
season. The increased number of men
was due to the recent orders of the
R. O. T. C. authorities which allows
members taking military training to
be excused from drill. The new men
were mostly freshmen, however, so
are not likely to strengthen this year':
The athletes returned from Drake
relays in good condition. The meet
was held in a snow storm, and to-
ward the close of the contest, there
was several inches on the ground.
The snow and the cold weather prob-
ably was the cause of the slow time
made in the different events. The
special 100 yard dash event was the
only one in which the time was up
to the mark.
Johnson is Second
Johnson took second place in the{
century struggle, crossing the line a
yard or two behind Scholz of Miss-j
ouri, who negotiated the distance in
9 4-5 seconds which is a second slow-
er than the world's record of 9 3-5
seconds. Howard Drew who did not
place among the first four men is one
of the holders of this record.eCarroll
of Illinois, was third, and Sol Butler
of Dubuque college, was the fourth
place winner. Zoellin was Michigan's;
other entry, but he failed to bef among
the first four.t
Steve said yesterday that the Miss-
ouri star was one of the best run-
ners that he had seen in many a day.
Coach Farrell said that Scholz had a
splendid build for a sprinter, and that
if he made the distance in 9 4-5 sec-
onds under the unfavorable weather
conditions of Saturday he ought, run-
ning on a fast track to'lower the time
to 9 2-5. The Missouri track mentor
gave out that his man had equalled
the world's record during the week's
Illinois Bests Relay Team
The half mile relay team placed sec-
ond place in their event, being breast-
ed to the tape by the Illinlon runners.
Zoellin started for Michigan, and took,
the lead, when Beardsley, running-

second, took. up the burden, he was
several yards to the good, but before
he had finished, Illinois was in the
lead. Cook, the Wolverine's third man
however, overtook his opponent dur-
ing his 220 yards, and conditions look-
ed excellent, when Johnson, Michigan
anchor man, was off with a good lead.
Carroll, running last for Illinois, came
i fack strong and secured revenge for
his defeat earlier in the afternoon in
the 100'°yard dash event by beating his
rival at the finish.
The next track event on the pro-
gram of Coach Farrell's proteges is
the Penn relay classics. It is practic-
ally certain that no relay teams will
be sent to the meet as they have not
shown enough ability to be taken
along. Steve said last night that John-
son wvas the only man who is sure of
going, and that it was entirely possible
that he would be the only one too.
None of the other athletes have enough
ability to compete with the high class.

The sophomores have shown the
most1ability to date,with the junior
aggregation running them a close sec-
ond. There is a woeful dearth of
seniors, who are no doubt becoming
either too dignified or too enfeebled
to indulge in the nation 11 pastime.
If, however, there are any bf the class
of 1918 left who feel that they can
bear up under the strain, they are
implored toshoulder the bat, and
don the canary cage for the sake of
the class.
