ceived a letter fromt the Intercollegiate wht ther Syracuse v. iC. tUback on the
Bowling association rquetin that
the University ci Michigan be repre-
sented in this organizaton. The ha -
quarters of the association are at New
Haven, Conn., and its members are
Cornell, Lehigh, Rensselaer Poly-
technic Institute, Stevens Institute,
Syracuse and Yale Universities.
It is the purpose of this association
to supervise an intercollegiate bowl-
ing league, every member of which is
eligible to enter a five-man team in
the league. The teams entered are
to be divided into sections according
to the convenience of numbers and lo-
cation. Each team will bowl three
games with each of the other teams
of that section, and the resulting
scores are to be telegraphed to the
headquarters of the league.
The association will also supervise
annually an intercollegiate bowling
tournament. The idea of this tourna-
ment is to bring the winning teams of
each section together to bowl for the
collegiate championship of America.
Among the western teams which
will probably enter are:. Illinois, Min-
nesota, 0. S. U., and Notre Dame.
A meeting in charge of H. A. Taylor
of the student council will be held
Thursday night at 7 o'clock in the
trophy room of Waterman gymnasium
to discuss the advisability of the form-
ation of a University of Michigan
bowling club. Letters have been sent
out to the fraternities and house clubs
requesting that men interested in this
sport will turn out for the meeting.
It, is hoped thata large number not
reached by these letters will also at-
tend the meeting.

clart and, if the O iuge team does not
incet !i. Wolverines next fall, what in-
s ion will replace the New York
ag regation? No one seems to know
the answer and the association will
not throw any light on the subject.'
The only sure things in connection
with this enigma are that if Michigan
plays Syracuse at all it will be at Ann
Arbor, and that in case that game-is
not scheduled, some eastern univer-
sity or college will fill out the sea-
son. No western team will be on
Michigan's schedule next year, that
much is evident.
There have been rumors to the ef-
fect that some institution such as
Princeton or Dartmouth will clash
with the Wolverines instead of Syra-
cuse. Either one would make a good
game, but these rumors are unauthor-
itative. Cornell and Pennsylvania will
in all probability be met in an effort
to wipe out last season's scores.
Now comes unofficial word from
.East Lansing to the effect that if Mich-
igan continues to insist on M. A. C.'s
coming to Ann Arbor to play, the Ag-
gics may refuse to comply and may
employ drastic methods by dropping
Michigan from the Farmer schedule.
The reason that M. A. C. has been re-
quired to play in Ann Arbor oftener
than at home is because the East Lan-
sing stands will not accommodate a
large crowd. As long as this is true
it is probable that the Aggies will
play more games ,against Michigan in
Ann Arbor than at the capital.
There is a chance that a light game
similar to the Washington University
contest will be scheduled for the lat-
ter part of the season to break the
strain of the heavy contests toward
the end. This is also unauthoritative,
but seems to be in keeping with the
policy employed by Michigan and
most of the larger institutions.
Until the schedule actually comes
out it will be merest speculation.

Ithaca. The team will, of course, con-
tinue the agreement with l ichigan

be made to place some of the larger

is no prospect whatever of Cornell's
playing either Pittsburg or Syracuse.
Fritz Shiverick is a general fav-

There are rumors that a certain group

championship tournament at Forest
Hills last September. It was his sec-
ond victory of the season over the title
holder of a year ago, the first having
been gained in the East vs. West
matches, and with two such feats to
his credit, and a dearth of defeats, hip
choice for the number one ranking
was almost definitely ordained.
Played But Few Times.
When it is considered that Williams
competed in only a few tournaments,
the outstanding features of his accom-
plishment are all the more striking.
Only twice was he defeated and in
each instance, Clarence J. Griffin was
the one who brought about his down-
fall. The first victory by the Cali-
fornian came in the Longwood tourna-
ment, and later at Newport, he again
vanquished Williams, but this time the
achievement was not so impressive, as
Williams was suffering from a
wrenched ankle. In the national
championship, however, Williams re-
versed the decision. Aside from Grif-
fin the more prominent players de-
feated by the Philadelphian were

If yesterday had been the thirteenth
day of the month and the soccer team
required 13 men to play the game,
something might be said about su-
perstitions, hoodoos, or jinxs, for
surely there is a jinx following the
Michigan soccerites this season. The
game with Ypsi Saturday almost did
not happen because of snow, and yes-
terday the regular practice period had
to be dispensed with because of wet
grounds and continuing snow.
Today, however, Coach Peirsol ex-
pects to have regular scrimmaging in
spite of any inclement weather. This
is the last chance the team will have
to hold practice before the return
game with the Normalities, Wednes-
The team will leave here early to-
morrow afternoon and will arrive in
