Material for 1917 Aggregation Should
Prove Abundant; Old Men
Last Year's All-Fresh Stars Expected
to Boost Team's Pros-
With the advent of Coach Lundgren
about the middle of February, Varsity
baseball will soon be booming and
athletic stocks are scheduled to soar.
In spite of the intervening pall of e-
aminations prospects for the 1917:
team is beginning to form the topic
for conversations at Huston's, which is
the first sign of the rising of the dia-
mond bug's sun.
Prospects for a strong team for
the coming season are most encour-
aging to the campus fans. Of last
year's team, that redoubtable battery
consisting of Shorty Miller and Bull
Dunne, are still here to form the
nucleus of their department. Captain
Brandell, Niemann, and Reem are left
to the outfield, all veterans and fond of
clouting the ball. Infielders are also
numerous. Walterhpuse, Newell, Lar-
son, Bialosky, and livers others will
be back to boost the percentage of the
In addition to the old men, last
year's All-Fresh should furnish sever-
al strong competitors for theVarsity
this spring. Tom Adams, captain and
first sacker for the 1916 yearling ag-
gregation, should be one of the strong-
est bidders for the initial stop guard-
ian judging by the quality of his work
last year. Dancer will in all prob-
ability prove a strong contestant for
the short stop job, possessing both
fielding and hitting ability. Horwitz,
the 1916 fresh third baseman is a like-
ly possibility for that position on
Lundgren's next team. Kirchgessner,
of the yearling outfield, is a hard hit-
ter and a clean fielder.
McGinnis, 1916 squad also offers a
nice trio of twirlers. Parks, Turner
and Glenn should materially boost
pitching stock. Morrison caught reg-
ularly for the yearlings.
Francis Murphy, who caught on his
class team several years ago and who
has not been in the University until
this year is touted as a formidable1
candidate for the backstop berth.
Murphy's understudy on his class ag-
gregation subsequently became Var-
sity catcher.
The first call will probably find
many dark horses out for a set-to in
the preliminaries. The first horn is
expected to sound about the first week
after examinations, although it will
probably be for battery men only.
Coach Lundgren is expected to pass
through Ann Arbor enroute to the
east within the next three weeks and
may stop off to look over the ground.
Just when the coach will be in town
is not definitely known.
Strong basketball teams of the state
who come to the interscholastic tour-
ney to be held by the University Ath-
letic association March 22,. 23, and 24,

will be given a chance to meet nearly
any team in the state that they believe
is worthy of a contest. This will be
allowed by provision made that teams
can confer in advance with the officials
to make schedules of their own pref-
A very satisfactory number out of
the 250 schools to which invitations
were sent two weeks ago have an-
swered with promises to enter. W.
Lee Watson, interscholastic basket-
ball manager, will send out a follow-
up letter Monday to the principals of
schools which have not answered. He
will ask the principals to encourage the
athletic authorities of the school to send
a team. This letter also will be a
more personal invitation, and will give
promise of entertainment for the high
school boys when they arrive.
Yale Defeats Williams in Hockey Game
New Haven, Jan. 12. - Yale beat
Williams at hockey in the Arena 3 to
2, in a game as closely contested as
the score indicates. It was a game in
which the superior team play of the
Elis featured, the work of the Yale
forwards being the best seen in sever-
al seasons.

He was a conscientious young cub.
So when the revered sporting ed. as-
signed him to look up the new exit at
the gym and report on its efficiency
in case of fire, he summoned all his
Slierlocking instincts to the fore and
pussy-footed over to Doc May's baili-
wick with his cap pulled over his eyes,
stopping ever and anon to cast steal-
thy glances behind him, in the most
approved old sleuth manner.
Arriving at the gym, he dodged the
eagle orbs of ,Doc and Steve. and in-
sinuated himself into the side door
and down the steps into the locker
room. Once safely inside, he prowled
hither and yon in the semi-darkness
of the basement in quest of the mys-
terious portal. But search as he might,
no trace of the much-discussed door
was to be found. Gas pipes aplenty

he found, and dusty boxes, and even
moldering track paraphernalia that
may have adorned the manly bosoms of
cinder path heroes of the day when
the Wolverine spiked shoe lead the
runners of the west to the tape.
But finally, a clue! Away off,
through an opening in the wall, the
youthful Nick Carter sees a ray of
light. He approaches stealthily, he
climbs through the hole in wall. He
finds himself before a wooden door,
nailed shut. Baffled again!
But halt! The keyhole! He stops.
He applies his eye. He takes a long,
lingering look, straightens up and flees,
his youthful features suffused with
crimson blushes. But never fear, girls,
he has sworn that the secret of the
passage way to the mysterious portal
shall die with him.

Conclave Held for Purpose of Arrang.
ing Schedule for Season; Time
Is 2 O'clock
There will be a meeting of hockey
managers in the office of the athletic
association today at 2 o'clock. Action
will be taken on the question of a
schedule for the coming season. The
authorities are hopeftl of starting im-
mediately and expect to arrange for
several games by the beginning of
next week.
Those in charge have come to the
conclusion that it is getting cold
enough for this winter sport to-make
its official debut. All that is neces-
sary is weather that will bring frozen
water pools and judging from the
amount of skating that has been tak-
ing place recently ice is abundant in
these parts.
Harvard Sprinters Showing Up Well'
Cambridge, Jan. 12.- Henry Minot,
Westmore Willcox and Capt. Eddie
Teschner of the Harvard track team
showed up well in the first time trials
held at Harvard for the short distance
relay team. Minot and Willcox did
two turns of the 130-yard board track
in great style, while Teschner was
only a fraction of a second slower.
"Pooch" Donovan, the Harvard head
coach, seemed satisfied with their per-
formances, but refused to give out the

Students Are Urged to Enroll as Soon
as Possible; Classes Gien Wed-
nesday and Saturdays
Attention was drawn yesterday by
Dr. George A. May, director of the
EWaterman gymnasium, in an inter-
view with a Daily reporter that he is
conducting a course in advanced gym-
nastic theory and practice which is
still open to enrollment by the stu-
dents. The aim of this course is to
provide instruction that will fit stu-
dents for positions as coaches of ath-
letic teams and teachers of gymnastic
work. The degree of proficiency at-
tained by the members will determine
the recommendation which will be
Dr. May emphasized the practical
benefit that this course will afford the
students enrolled. Not only will lec-
tures be given explaining the theory of
gymnastic apparatus and exercises
but practical work of a thorough na-
ture will be taken up under his per-
sonal supervision. Methods of meas-
uring in examinations will receive
consideration as well as the detection
and correction of the most common
abnormalities. Also a series of im-
portant lectures on the growth and de-
vleopment of the human body will be
Students may join this class at any
time but as the work is of a constant-

that those intending- to enroll do so

Expect Callfor Liited. Number in

Out Yet
Among the possible advantages that
the 1917 squad may have over the
earlier tennis teams is that of indoor
practice. It is possible and even prob-
able that in a few weeks the call will
be issued to a limited number to re-
port to the gym. Definite plans for in-
door work have not been formed as
yet but it is certain that if the plan
is adopted only Varsity material will
be allowed to use the space in the
It is probable that any indoor train-
ing given will be for the greater part
in the nature of technique. Serving
is one of the points which will doubt-
lessly receive its share of attention as
well as the efliciency of different
strokes. The speed displayed in the
fall tournament showed that there are
many who may not be veterans on
the Varsity but at the same time are
experienced racquet *wielders and
good men to have on any team. The
fall tournament also showed that
these stars of the court are expert in
different manners of play and with a
great variety of strokes.
If these men with a little indoor
work can be developed, each along his
own line of attack, the team should
present a front varied enough to con-
fuse the best of opponents.
News comes from the Varsity tennis
headquarters that negotiations for
dates and places of games still con-
tinues and that no definite schedule
has at present been formed. The
greatly increased interest in the sport
which has been developed in the last
year or two by players and supporters
of the sport, makes it desirable to get
the most advantageous schedule pos-
sible for the team, and it is to such
an end that those in charge are work-

strongest team developed on the east-

The marked difference between the
two elevens to close observers, how-
ever, was on the physical side. As one
writer said: "The Pennsylvanians
were decidedly of the city-bred type,
while the Oregon players looked as if
they had come from the rough life of
the woods and the mountains."
For three-quarters of the time the!
playing was in Oregon's territory. Ore-
gon used her superior strength with i
perfect judgment. Pennsylvania was

set the impending danger. This wen
on until the best that Pennsylvania
had was used up. As Penn tired, Ore-
gon came on with renewed vigor, and
in the end their great strength com-
pletely outmatched the exhausted
physical powers of the Pennsylvania
The victory over Pennsylvania has
caused a perceptible rise in easterr
estimation of western football. Many
eastern football authorities have fre-
quently passed over the western elev-
ens as being behind the big colleges on
the Atlantic seaboard in the develop-
ment and playing of the game. This
impressive victory over Pennsylvania
adds great interest to the visit of the
University of Washington eleven to
the polo grounds next fall.

In advancing the date of this famous mid-Winter Event from February to
January we were influenced by a number of important considerations. Chief
among them was our desire to offer unusual inducements to fraternities and
clubs who regularly contribute a large share of our furniture business during
these weeks preceding the Junior Hop season.
So instead of quoting discounts at a time when there is comparatively little
interest in things of the sort, we have unexpectedly announced sweeping re-
ductions on everything in the magnificent furniture collection, besides consider-
able portions of the rug and drapery stocks.
Here you will find large representative assortments of Karpen overstuffed
chairs, rockers and davenports; art craft pieces from Stickley Brothers, reed
and fibre chairs for sun porches and smoking rooms, handsome library tables
of oak or mahogany, and all the exquisite pieces needed for reception rooms.,
and parlors.
All these and thousands more you will find here in greatest varieties. The
woods are true, the designs correct and the qualities dependably high.
Fraternities, house clubs and private home owners are invited to inspect

the fine displays.

Our entire furniture organization is at your service.
