'WORK' AND 'BRING OUT MORE MEN' KEYNOTES
"Michigan has a more attractive
schedule to offer her track men this
season than she has had in many
years," Coach Farrell stated at the an-

bigger turnout of Wolverines for the

the meeting was a big success. The
prevailing opinion last night was that
the total number out for the gathering
should not be allowed to represent the
aggregate of the men out for work this
About 60 enthusiastic athletes were
present, nearly all of whom are trying
for positions on the Varsity.
"Work" was the keynote which all
the speakers sounded at some portion
of their discourse. The "bring out more

fore a person.
Captain Carroll especially encourag-
ed men with mediocre ability to make
preparations to try for a place.

cognized point getter," Carroll went
Coach Farrell dealt particularly with
the opponents Michigan will probably
meet this season. Steve said the Var-
sity will have two excellent dual meets

ison with the teams which they regu-
larly meet, or which Michigan is ex-
pected to tussle with this winter and
spring, the turnout of athletes for the
squad is very slim. Comparing Mich-
igan's usual half hundred tryouts,
some of the other schools have as
many as 200 to 300 men out at the be-
ginning of their seasons.
Professor Aigler of the Law school
told the athletes that track as well as
other forms of athletics should go
hand in hand with scholastic work.
Aigler pointed out that bodily develop-
