,ST IN ATHLETICS DURING
ST SEASON HAS BEEN
As a result of Michigan's return to
the Conference a marked increase of
interest in all branches of athletics
is being evinced by the students. The
University is awakening from the com-
parative apathy in athletics of the past
few years, as shown by the number of
men coming out for the teams and the
augumented interest in the progress
of the Varsity squads, on the part of
'e - campus.
The recent basketball season was a
failure as far as winning games was
concerned, but there were good crowds
out to see the contests in spite of the
fact that the chances of coming out
victorious were slim. Although the
Wolverines did not win a single Con-
ference tilt, the season was a decid-
ed success from the standpoint or stu
(lent support of the team.
- Students Enthusiastic
Victories on the track would make
the average student enthusiastic at
any. time, but Michigan could not
bave gained such wide recognition,
nor could the students have become so
interested had it not been for the op-
portunities offered by the Big Ten
meets. The baseball season opened
with more candidates reporting for
practice than ever before, and the
campus has been watching the repeat-'
ed successes of Coach Lundgren's men
with increasing eagerness.. The games
have been well attended and the 'pro-
spects are bright for a fine year on the1
Sisler's big days in the major league
are as many as when he was still the
star of the Maize and Blue. Out of
three times at bat Thursday he got
two runs and one hit; in the field, nine
put outs, and no errors. Out of six
times at bat Cobb and Speaker, the
two best batter's in the American
league according to the results of past
season's, managed to secure only two
hits between them. Although neither
of them had an error, being outfield-
ers they had only four chances to
make a slip.
The box score for the three is as

ed to third and Cooper flied to Bryan

second on Rudolph's wild throw but
Ruzicka grounded to the pitcher.
Players Nave Two Fights g
The only disappointing thing in
the game was the bad blood formed
between the two teams when Rudolph
tried to knock the ball out of Morri-
son's hands in the fourth by running
head first into the Wolverine catcher.
Smalley responded with a kick in the
back before Ruzicka separated the
men. In the sixth Sproehnle secured
an infield hit and ran full tilt into
Adams on first. Tommy put one into
the Chicago player's kidneys before a
half dozen men pulled the two apart.
The two teams meet again this aft-
ernoon. Terhune will be on the mound
for Chicago and Captain Glenn will

ENTIRE SQUAD TRYS
Grenade throwing came into the
foreground in yesterday's practice
of the Wolverine track squad. Coach
Farrell gave all his athletes a try at
the new event, but the men disclos-
ed nothing phenomenal in their work.
Accuracy, one of the necessary fea-
tures of grenade throwing, was miss-
ing in hurling the missiles. Steve
was of the opinion that after more
practice, this would be eliminated.
A big bunch of men are working out
for the inter-class meet next Satur-
day, May 11. Entries are coming in
at a fair rate, and from present in-
dications, the contest ought to be a
success. Any track athlete who has
not signed up yet, may put his name
on the list at the Ferry Field club
house or by seeing Coach Farrell.
All the regular events will be run
off with the exception of the relay.
There are not enough men to fill the
places on the different class relay
teams to pass the baton. A Soph-
Fresh relay is a possibility, but unless
more athletes come out. this too, will
be called off.

Benefits Not Realized
Students have hardly begun to real-
ize the benefits of Michigan's re-entry
into the Conference. There is little
doubt but that many athletes from the
middle west will now be attracted to
Ann Arbor who would not have come
here as long as the University re-
mained out of the Big Ten. When
Michigan is competing with univer-
sities in this section of the country
many fellows will come here who
would not come if the Wolverines
were playing games which hold no
local or sectional interest.
Minor sports will have to be devel-
oped here if Michigan is to make a
creditable showing in the Conference.
Basketball has already been raised to
a major sport. It must be developed
so that a Michigan basketball team
cannot be looked down upon by any-
one. Tennis material must be uncov-
ered and a first class team got into,
shape. In fact, Michigan has got to
turn out good teams in every branch
of athletics if she ever wishes to re-
gain her old position as leader of the
Kamp Selected After Deadlock
St. Louis, May 3.-Carl ("Toddy")
Kamp, captain and left guard of the
1918 Washington university basket-
ball team, has been re-elected captain
by the student . council of the insti-
tution. Kamp was selected after the
letter men of the team had voted to a
deadlock three times.

Michigan's two man tennis team,
Egbert and Hamer, plays Chicago this
afternoon at 2 o'clock on Ferry field.
This is the first meeting of the two
schools in 14 years, the last tourna-
ment being in 1904. Little is known
here of the ability of the men that
compose the aggregation from the
Windy City. The class of tennis usu-
ally put up by the Maroon team is of
the highest standard, however, and a
hard match is looked for tomorrow.
Yesterday was ideal for practice,
with the exception of a slight wind
that swept across Ferry field. The
rain and wind which have been pre-
valent throughout the wek have kept
the courts in poor condition, so that
very little practice has been possible
for the tennis players. The good work
out obtained yesterday was the first
real practice since the Ohio State
tournament of last Saturday.
Egbert and Hamer are in good con-
dition physically and believe that they
have the edge on the Maroons, partic-
ularly as they are on the home courts.
They look for the sets to be close and
hard fought and believe the tourna-
ment will be no clean sweep for either
With good weather the sets will be
played on the dirt courts. This will
make the tournament more interesting
to the spectators, and a big crowd is
expected. The small turnout of last
week, at the time of the Ohio State
matches, was disappointing to the
players, but the cause of this it is
believed, was that the tournament had
been but slightly advertised.

GRANT WOMEN MORE TIME
FOR TENNIS TOURNAMENT
Women tennis tournament players
have been granted until Monday night
to play off their first round. So far
the girls have not been seen much on
the courts, but with the coming of
the warm May weather more interest
is being shown. The players are asked
after their first round to secure their
partners of the second round.
There is stillrya call for more wo-
men to volunter for doubles in the
tournament. Members of all classes
are eligible to enter for this and one

Freshman baseball candidates were
given a very short workout yesterday
afternoon because of the Michigan-
Chicago game. The entire time was
spent in batting and fielding practice.
Coach Mitchell feels now that he has
had time enough to look over the ma-
terial and has cut down his squad to
a squad to a size where he can handle
it with ease. The next week of prac-
tice will be devoted to polishing and
teaching inside baseball. From now
on the first year men will furnish
practically all the practice opposition
that the Varsity will act.

350,000 Silver Dollars to be Melted
Washington, May 3.-One of the
most important pieces of legislation
during the past month was the pas-
sage of the Pittman bill, which au-
thorized the melting of 350,000 silver
dollars now in the Treasury.
As these are melted, silver certifi-
cates to a corresponding amount will
be cancelled, and will be replaced by
federal reserve bank notes, which re-
quire a gold reserve of only five per
cent. The necessity for the measure
was brought about chiefly by the great
rise in the price of silver, which in
turn was caused by declining supplies
and increasing demands.
