Hal Smith's Quota of Points Will Be
Greatly Missed This Coming Sea.
son in Cinder Sport
CARROLL ONLY POINT WINNER
Nine points out of the total col-
lected by Michigan at last spring's in-
tercollegiates at Boston left Michigan
for good last June when ex-Captain
Hall Smith received his diploma.
Of the other four counters garnered
by the Maize and Blue in the big col-
lege classic, the entirety is centered
in one man-Eddie Carroll, this sea-
son's captain. Eddie finished second
to Windnagle, the Cornell whiz, who
negotiated the distance in the fastest
time ever made by any college miler
with the exception of John Paul Jones.
Windnagle's time was 4:15. Eddie's
was a fraction more than a second
slower.
On the face of things Michigan has
poor prospects in'the track world this
season. Two years ago the Wolver-
ines' total added up to 16 points, with
13 of them remaining in school last
year-Smith and Carroll. With those
13 they were able to break but even,
acquiring the same number.'
Counts on Cross and Simmons.
Coach, Farrell encountered some
tough breaks in the luck last spring
in losing two very good prospects of
seeming intercollegiate caliber. Cross
and Simmons both went to Boston, but
neither was himself. At the time Cec
contracted a setback he was heaving
the shot plenty far enough to finish in
the point class. Vic was negotiating
six feet in the high jump with a regu-
POPULAR

larity which means a great deal in
track, and was just rounding into
form, so that it seems very probable
that the tall Hoosier lad would have
added on an inch, possibly more to
his work of just before spring vaca-
tion.
But Vic pulled some tendons in his
jumping leg, and was not himself the
rest of the year. His performance in
the Stanford dual controversy late in
May raised some hope, but the next
week he was unable to show his real
ability.
The fact remains that Michigan is
in need of good track material, not
some one who can be developed into
another Smith, or another Carroll in-
side of three weeks, but some one
who is willing to get out and work.
The pole vaulting prospects to date
are about the same as last year, when
Michigan considered herself lucky to
get a third plae in a dual meet. High
jumpers and shot putters are none too
strong by a wide margin.
The regents have remodeled the gym
so that there Is no longer any reason
for the poor conditions which used to
prevail. The coach is ready to take
care of anyone who wishes to come
out.
Haughton Cries
for Eligibility
Harvard Coach Declares That Loss of
Three Stars Through Scholarship
Wrecked Crimson's Chances
Cambridge, Mass., Dec. 14.-In in-
dividual letters addressed to prospec-
tive members of next year's football
squad at Harvard, Coach Percy D.
Haughton declares that the recent de-
feat of the Crimson at New Haven
might have been averted had Har-
vard's team not been wrecked by the
probation of three of its stars last win-
ter. The letter in part reads as fol-
lows:
"This defeat can be traced back to
slackness between the time of last
year's game and mid-year, when men
whose presence on the team would
probably have turned the scale, got on
probation, their services being finally
lost to the team.
"If we are to have a successful sea-
son next year,,every one must get into
the best possible trim, mentally and
physically.
"The main thing is to begin now
and be sure that these mid-year marks
are good."
Manager Robb is a co-signer of the
letter with Coach Haughton, but the
latter himself asks each player to
hang the communication over his desk
as a daily reminder until the mid-year
exams are over. The letters will then
be collected by the football manage-
ment.
Wisconsin Wants
Wolverines Back
Prominent Men to Circulate Petitions
Ursing Michgan's Return
to Conference
Madison, Wis., Dec. 14.-"Wisconsin
has never opposed Michigan's re-en-
tering conference," said Prof. J. F.
A. Pyre, member of the athletic council
and faculty representative of the Big
Nine meeting at Chicago, "and we
stand ready to welcome the Wolverines
back into the fold at any time." Prof.
Pyre was a member of Wisconsin
teams in the days when Michigan was
on the Badger schedule.
Prominent students will circulate

petitions around the campus urging
the return of Michigan. Expressions
by former Michigan men are in favor
of return, and call for Wisconsin rep-
resentatives to go to Big Nine meet-
ings primed to work for such an ar-
rangement.
Must Empty Ferry Field Club House
Final warning is given by the ath-
letic authorities that all students hav-
ing clothes and other supplies in
lockers in Ferry field club house, must
remove them by tonight. The club
house will be closed at this time and
the removal of all private property
will prevent much inconvenience and
loss.

Princeton Should
Play Wolverines
Grantland Rice States That Tigers
Ought to Book 1917 Contest With
Michigan Football Team
Grantland Rice, one of the recog-
nized sporting critics aid, authorities
of the country, has the following to
say regarding Princeton's football
schedule in the Louisville Herald:
"Princeton football, having fallen
into a rut of late years, might help to
start a revival by a new schedule ar-
rangement. The addition of Michigan
or Pennsylvania to the Tiger sched-
rle next fall might help more than a
mere mite.
"Both Penn and Michigan, even when
their material is not of the highest or-
der, have systems that are worth ob-
serving. And the best way to profit
Crom any football system is to play
against it, and so gather information
first hand, or first foot, as the case
might be.
"Rush has made an advance, de-
spite the Tiger showing, but Prince-
ton hasn't yet been soaked heavily
enough in the right sort of football
knowledge. A Penn or a Michigan
game would help in this direction."
