All Hostilities Will Be Dropped Until
After Second Semester is
Under Way
Beta Theta Pi, kappa Sigma, Delta
Upsilon and Armstrong's Look
Unusually Good
Having shown to the campus at
large by practical demonstrati n the
bright prospects of a totally unexpect-
ed quality which lies in store for
Michigan's first basketball squad, the
first round of the fraternity and
boarding house league wound up Tues-
day night. There are still a few games
left which are results of three corner-
ed ties for second place in the various
groups and which will be played off
The strongest of the entrants re-
main for the second round which is
scheduled to be played after the im-
pending blue book crisis is past.
Among the fraternities entered in the
league the following have ably shown
their ability and have finished either
first or second in their respective
group: Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Sigma
Chi, Phi Kappa Sigma, Lambda Chi
Alpha, Knickerbocker club, Phi Gam-
ma Delta, Delta Upsilon, Trigon. Beta
Theta Pi, Kappa Sigma, and either Al-
pha Sigma Phi or the Monks. There
are four more second teams in the di-
visions which will be entered upon
this list but which have not been de-
termined yet. These fraternities will
continue the fight in the second round
next semester.
These Look Good
The boarding house teams which
have successfully defended the names
of their chosen rooming or messing
emporiums and have thereby won a
place in the second round of hostil-
ities are: Armstrong, Arcadia, Chat-
fields, Freemans, Linda Vista, Mark-
els, Willets, and Owens Serve Self.
There will be in all, 22 teams fight-
ing for supremacy in the second tilt.
Fraternities which according to the
dope should finish in. the front row
are: Beta Theta Pi, Delta Upsilon,
and Kappa Sigma. Three teams which
are a shade behind but which also
present formidable opposition to any
five,sare the representatives of Sigma
Alpha Epsilon, Phi Gamma Delta and
the Trigons. Among the boarding
houses the Armstrongs look like the
best bet. The supporters of Arcadia
are a close second and there are other
fives which are gaining form and may
also break into the final reckoning.
During the course of the play the
the marked ability of certain players
in the league has been extremely no-
ticeable. Many teams with star play-
ers have not reached their stride in
teamwork but as a rule the entrants
are more or less well organized and

The scores of the matches have been
generally low. This is due more or
less to the fact that all teams while
working in professional style, are
stronger on the defense than on the
offense. The low scores are further
proof of the even manner in which the
fives are matched and the businesslike
attitude with which contest are play-
ed, leaving absolutely nothing to the
imagination. The second round should
present basketball fast enough to
thrill the most unemotional and it is
expected that the game will have a
large audience.
Blattery Tryouts Will Be Given Ex-
elusive Use of Gym for First
Few Days
Along with the other indoor sports,
class basketball, track, and the J-hop
not to mention exams, baseball prac-
tice is also a prospect. With all the
many activities coming in a bunch,
Varsity baseball is slated to compli-
cate the accommodation facilities in
Waterman gym.
As nearly as the dope runs even the
enlarged gym should be taxed some-
what to allow the large crowd of can-
didates for Coach Lundgren's squad to
take their daily constitutional when
the first call for practice is issued.
That call is expected to come about
the first week after the annual gloom
festival, although it is to be exclu-
sive like the J-hop and will be only for
battery men (also like the hop).
Varsity Coach Lundgren is expected
to drop into town almost any\ time
now, for a hurried visit. The mentor
will come to Ann Arbor for his regular
yearly stop soon after exams are over.
The opening of the official season
may be delayed somewhat due to the
J-hop. It nearly always takes two or
three days to get the polish off the
gym floor so that an ordinary athlete
must trust himself out on the slippery
surface without feeling that he ought
to be either in a hockey suit or full
dress a la Pontchartrain grill.
What institution will fill the open
date on the Varsity schedule is not
yet known. The unfilled date is May
26. The schedule for the southern trip
is also unknown as yet. That, how-
ever, should be out for publication in
the near future. The team generally
meets with pretty stiff competition in
the south, as the colleges south of the
Mason and Dixon line generally prove
stronger on the diamond than the grid-
iron. Some of the possibilities for
this year s trip are, Kentucky State,
University of Virginia, Washington,
and Lee University, Tennessee, Georg-
ia, and others who played on the last
schedule. The last game with Ken-
tucky State was spoiled by snow on
the first day.
Leland Stanford comes to Ann Arbor
in baseball this year, winding up the
regular season in June. Last year
the coast athletes competed with the
Wolverines in track and gave Farrell's

men an interesting afternoon on Ferry
field. That meet was scheduled late
and served the Stanford boys as a
preliminary bout to the main go at the
Eastern intercollegiates. This year's
baseball game is a regularly scheduled
affair, and the opponents from Cali-
fornia will in all probability be out
for revenge for the defeat handed out
by the Michigan track artists last sea-
The far westerners are even better
at baseball than their other sports,

according to all the available, dope.
Track and baseball are their main
stays. The climate at Standfordian
headquarters is warm enough to per-
mit baseball and track training all the
year, while it is a little too warm for
football, hence the difference in weight
and attention given to these respective
branches of sport. The diamond finale
in this year's series should be one well
calculated to afford all kinds of thrills
and interest to the all-seeing specta-


Takes Close Contest from 1917-1919
Squad After Poor Start in
First Half
Odd numbers are unlucky this year
in women's basketball. The women of
1917-1919 went down to defeat again
yesterday before the combined strength
of the Juniors and freshmen, with a
final score of 26-23.
The game appeared to be practically
won at the end of the first half, which
closed with the evens on the long end
of 20-3, but a complete change of play-
ers for the second period reversed
matters and the odds brought victory
in sight by rolling up 20 points to their
opponents' six.
The playing was considerably
smoother than in the first game of the
season and there was a good deal of
spirit in spite of the fact that many
of the stars of the squad did not go
on the floor at all. Louise Irish, '18.
was largely responsible for the heavy
showing made by the evens in the first

infallible at basket-shooting and Dor-
othy Sample, '20, played an exception-
ably good game.
About 25 members of the squad got
into the game, which was the last be-
fore the selection of the regular and
second class teams to take place soon
after the opening of the second se-
mester. Miss Alice Evans, director,
expressed herself last night as very
well satisfied with the form shown in
yesterday's contest and prophesied
some fast class games on the post-
exam schedule.
Boston, Jan. 24.-Captain Johnny
Overton of the Yale track team, the
intercollegiate cross-country champion
for the past two years, will be a starter
in the Hunter mile at the Boston Ath-
letic association games in Mechanics
hall, Saturday, Feb. 3. Overton is one
of the greatest milers in the country.
Try a Michigan Daily Want Ad.

Cap Murphy may never run again.
The best half miler in Michigan and
one of the best in college ranks today
has been advised by a specialist to
undergo an operation.
Murphy ran last year under difficul-
ties, suffering at times from severe
pains in the side. Even then, next to
Ufer and possibly Phil Jansen, he was
the best 880-yard man Michigan ever
Just before Christmas vacation Cap
visited a Detroit specialist. The doc-
tor's advice was that an operation was
the only thing for the ailment, and ad-
vised the athlete to refrain from all
strenuous exercise of any nature. Cap
stated last evening. that he will fol-
low the advice, and will undergo the
operation during spring vacation.
'Coach Farrell has been counting on
Murphy heavily in either the four or
two-mile relay teams which he will
put out this season. Cap's loss from
these will be heavily felt, as it takes
a sure member from either one.
Next to Captain Carroll, Murphy is
undoubtedly the best middle distance
man in school. Many times last sea-
son he ran the half mile in less than
two minutes. His exact record can-
not be obtained, as at the Toledo meet
last summer, which he won in 1:55,
the track was measured short. There
is but little doubt that he could go
the full distance but two seconds
slower last year, as he was less than
ten yards behind Ufer when Joe broke
the Ferry field record.
Great things were expected from the
veteran this season. Easily the best
man among the half milers at the pres-

ent time, it would not have been a
surprise to have seen Cap break the ;
record which Ufer made last spring;
against Leland Stanford.
In as much as Murphy is expected,
to be in school again next year, the
veteran may accumulate some points
then, but there is little chance of his;
getting into an argument with Wind-
nagle, Bingham, et al., this season.
Football Receipts Are $79,648.98
Minnesota secured a large return as
a result of the football season. Pro-
fessor James Paige at a meeting of
the board of athletic control reported
that the total receipts for seven games
amounted to $79,648.98.
New York, Jan. 24.-Hayward Reed,
fruit grower of Sacramento, Cal., told
on his arrival aboard the Holland-
American liner Ryndam today a story
of third degree methods of British au-
thorities at Falmouth. He was sus-,
pected, he said, of being a man named,
Rutherford and was twice rigorously
examined before being allowed to con-
tinue on his way.
