Steve Believes Varsity Cinder Path
Program Is Best That Miich-
igan Has Had
COACH IS GREETED BY BIG
TURNOUT qF TRACK ATHLETES
Attention Is Centered Upon Coming
Indoor Struggle Against Notre
"The best schedule Michigan has
ever had," was the expression of Coach
Farrell yesterday respecting the 1917
track program announced Sunday.
From the number of men, both fresh-
men and Varsity aspirants who ap-
peared yesterday, the same opinion
must be prevalent. All afternoon the
coach was busy putting tracksters of
all kinds through their paces in the
largest single day's turnout the coach
has had this season. Nearly every
athlete who has become identified with
track proceedings to date was pres-
Following the schedule announce-
ment, the athletes can see just how
short a time it is before the opening
assignment with Notre Dame's choic-
est, down on the program for Feb. 17.
Possibly the reason for the large turn-
out can be assigned to the proximity
of the first engagement, and to the
quality of the meets which the Wol-
verines have booked.
Carroll Does Fast Mile.
Farrell is not speeding up his ath-
letes yet to. any marked degree, al-
though several of the men have made
fast time for so early in the season.
Steve clocked Carroll the full ten laps
this morning in 4:38 and Fontanna
has done the quarter in close to 55 sec-
onds. It is unlikely that Carroll will
be sent at 4 much faster pace until
the time for the Catholic duel, as it is
well known what he can do. Others
whose ability on the Varsity is well
known will likewise be allowed to take
things easy for some time, and the
coach may extend this system to every-
one out except the men in the field
Wateh Catholics Saturday.
An idea as to the strength of Notre
Dame will be secured by the coach
Sunday as the Catholics have a meet
in Chicago Saturday night. The meas-
ure of preparedness necessary to make
a Michigan showing in the opening
meet of the Wolverine season can be
obtained from the reports on this
Many of the athletes will work in
the gym during examinations this
year, owing to the fact that Michigan's
date with the Catholics is during the
first week of the second semester.
HARVARD VARSITY FOOTBALL

Cambridge, Mass., Jan. 22.-Harvard
is taking its football seriously this
winter despite official denials. The first
movement in the campaign for 1917
was started when Coach Haughton and
Manager Robb joined in sending a let-
ter to every prospective candidate for
the eleven next fall, asking each man
to study hard for the approaching mid-
year examinations. I order not to
forget to do so, they advised the candi-
dates that the letter be hung over
their study desks, and also be held for

Harvard is having a little winter
football for diversion. Every day in
the week, except Saturday and Sun-
day, there is work in the baseball cage
from 2 to 3 o'clock. The first practice
was held last week, with Arnold for-
w een, Tubby Clark andRalph Hadley,
and three other men including Captain
Each candidate notified Manager
Robb of the most convenient days that
he could report in the cage and the
football manager has made plans ac-
cordingly. Any man participating in
another sport is excused from cage
work. Only the fundamentals will oc-
cupy the attention of the players dur-
ing the winter, according to Captain
Wheeler, but this will tend to have
them fit for work when spring prac-
tice is started in mid-April.

That a good baseball player may also

Not Get Letters
Prominent Cornellians Are Opposed
to Movement Giving Them
Ithaca, N. Y., Jan. 22.-Serios op-
position to the plan to give the varsity
letter to managers of the major sport
teams at Cornell has resulted in the
postponement of decision on this point
by the athletic council, some of the
members of which are managers them-
selves. Both senior societies, Sphinx
Head and Quill and Dagger, whose
membership includes some of the most
prominent men in the senior class,
have gone on record against the pro-
posal, and the Cornell Sun, the stu-
dents' newspaper, has also attacked it.
Several years ago a movement to
give the "C" to managers was serious-
ly brought to the attention of the un-
dergraduate body. After some lively
discussion the plan was defeated, or
at least nothing came of it. This year
a more serious effort has been made,
and while those opposed to the move-
ment are not willing to concede that
the matter may go through the council,
they are more concerned about it than
they were a few years ago.
Not Play Rutgers
Rumors of Thanksgiing Day Contest
Between Two Institutions
Are Without Grounds
Reports to the effect that Michigan
and Rutgers college are negotiating
for the purpose of arranging a
Thanksgiving day football game are
without grounds. There will be no
such game this year. Whether any
such game will ever be scheduled in
the future is extremely doubtful.
It was stated on good authority that
any negotiations which at any time
had been conducted by the two insti-
tutions have long since been discon-
tinued, and that there is no possibility
of such a contest next season. The
Wolverine schedule is out and all ar-
rangements are completed for games
and the list itself is entire as it will
The present rules governing foot-
ball relations do not permit of a
Thanksgiving day game. Michigan
cannot enter into any contracts call-
ing for such a contest on that account,
if upon no other consideration. Be-
sides this factor against the Rutgers
proposition, others are evident which
'would make such an agreement rather
improbable. Michigan and Rutgers
are in no way natural rivals, either
geographically or in sentiment and
tradition. The disparity is size of the
two institutions is anofher point
against a meeting between respective
All of these reasons were probably
considered by the authorities in re-
fusing to schedule a game with the
eastern college, although only one, the
rule against such a contest, would be
sufficient ,to bar it from the schedule.
