Wolverines Show Real A bility in Big
Track Encounter at Camp
Paul Jones
Ann Arbor Representatives Take
Down Initial Honors in Hurdles,
Mile, and Half-Mile
Michigan's two companies of Naval
militia, now in training at Camp Paul
Jones, Great Lakes, Ill., showed real
athletic class in a track meet held
Saturday, the Wolverines taking firsts
in the mile, hurdles, and half-mile
events against a field picked from the
10,000 other men in training at the
Donald B. Hause, of Ann Arbor high
school, won the low hurdles and took
second in the high hurdles. Hazen
Foster, '18, copped the mile run, and
R. E. LeBay. '19E, beat the field in the
880 yard event. Jess R. Simpson, '18,
followed Foster home in the mile, tak
ing second, and F. W. Hartman, '20E,
was right behind LeBay in the half-
mile. L. D. Troost, '19. and C. E.
Page, '19, with second and third re-
spectively in the low hurdles, enabled
the Michigan contingent to sweep
this event. Winfred C. Davis, '17E,
took second in the high jump with a
mark of 5 feet 6 inches.
The field events were postponed and
Cedric C. Smith, '18. captain-elect of
the 1917 football team and weight man
on the track team, is expected to up-
hold Michigan's reputation in the shot-
put, hammer and discus throw.
Anmong the men in camp are many
college men from Wisconsin and other
western universities, and the showing
of the Michigan delegaton is one to be
proud of because of the nature of the
firown Plans to
Play Football
Providence, R. ., June 4.-Brown
university will continue with all forms
of athletics when college reopens in
the fall, it is announced. Brown is
apparently well satisfied with the
course pursued this spring of continu-
ing with both baseball and track, and
although varsity teams have been sad-
ly weakened by the loss of numerous
stars, schedules have been carried out
and the baseball team will fill its dates
up to the close of college.
Prof. F. W. Marvel, director of ath-
leticĀ§, said: "We feel that it is a great
opportunity to put athletics in its
proper place, develop new men and
give more students an opportunity to
participate, and compete. Having a
university represented by a few stars
may win games, but the mere winning
of games should not be the chief aim
and purpose of educational institu-
"Many colleges gave up their ath-
letic schedules when a few star ath-
letes left, thus weakening their teams.
Brown continued. Some gave. up be-
cause so many games were canceled.
We are taking our medicine and are
offering the students an opportunity
to play at this time when there should
be something to take up their atten-
tion besides the war.

New York, June 4.-Fordham uni-
versity will make an attempt to re-
store athletics with the opening of the
fall term. It was decided\at the last
meeting of the athletic conmmittee to
play through the football schedule
that has been prepared if it was at all
possible to get together a team from
among the younger men of non-mili-
tary age when they return in Septem-
ber. The Bronxites realize they will
be much weaker than a year ago, but
it has been agreed that the best way
to keep the underclassmen in good
physical shape for their future entry
into military service is by the exten-,
sion of sports.
Tufts Drops Baseball for Year
Medford, Mass., June 4.-The Tufts
college baseball team has been dis-
banded for the season. The manage-
ment was unable to secure games for
remaining dates left open by cancella-
tion of contests with colleges which
suspended baseball on account of the

Harvard Plans On
No 1917 Football
Crimson Seliedle Is Still Intact But
Manager Robb Despairs
of Playing Games
Cambridge, Mass., June 4.-The
prospects of playing varsity football
at Harvard are practically nil. "There
appears to be little chance of the
sport being played here next fall,"
said Manager Robb today. "The
schedule arranged is still intact, in
fact we will make no cancellation until
some decision is made at the National
Collegiate association meeting, which
is to be held in New York in August.
At this meeting the question is to
come up for discussion and action."
The members of last fall's eleven,
with the exception of Eddie Casey, are
all enrolled in some sort of war serv-
ice. Casey's application for admission
into Plattsburg was turned down. Most
of the substitutes and members of the
freshman team are also doing their
bit. Fred W. Moore will represent
Harvard at the National Collegiate as-
sociation meeting.
Bluejackets Get Baseball Instruction
Chicago, June 4.-Bluejackets at the
United States naval training station
at Great Lakes, Ill., are to receive
baseball instruction from stars of the
National league, under an arrange-
ment completed here. Jimmy Archer,
catcher, and Jimmy Sheckard, assist-
ant to Manager Mitchell of the Cubs,

No Football at
Yale Next Fall!
Of'eis at New' Haven Fear There
Will Be No Gridiron Sport
This Coming Autumn
New Haven, Conn., June 4.-Doubt
is PU:t by Yale athletic officials that
athletics can be resumed next fall or
be 'cre the close of the war. A canvass
of members of the Yale athletic coun-
il shows that the oninion is deep-
seated that too many athletes have,

fall, to make an attempt to revive foot-
ball in September a success, either in
the matter of assuring gridiron!
matches of quality or of interesting.

Prof. Robert N. Corwin, head of the
athletic council, is eager to witness
the resumption of sports, but he
pointed out some of the difficulties at-
tending the organizing of athletic
teams and of carrying out scheduled
games this fall. In the first place, he
said, about three-quarters of all the
"Y" athletes have left college. The
list includes all the major and most
of the minor sports captains. Captain
Le Gore of the baseball nine this
spring, and Captain-elect Ray Snell of
next season's team, Captain "Cupid"
Black of the eleven last fall, and Cap-.
tain-elect "Art" Gates of the team for
next fall, Captain Cord Meyer of the
