This Afternoon and Season's
Plans Laid

New Gymnasium Facilities Provide
Room for Big Crowd at Notre
Dame Meet
Coach Farrell Lets Varsity Squad Off
with Easy Afternoon's Work-
out at Gym Yesterday
Athletic Director Bartelme stated
yesterday that 2,000 spectators would
be admitted to the Notre Dame meet
tomorrow night. Entrance will be
either by the main door or by the door
between Waterman and Barbour gyms.
Doors will open at 7 o'clock, and ad-
mission will be granted upon pre-
sentation of athletic coupon 12. First
come, first served wtl be the order,
as there will be no reserved seats.
Coach Farrell gave most of his boys
easy workouts yesterday in prepara-
tion for the opening fight with Notre
Dame tomorrow night. '
The number out was not very large,
and those who did appear satisfied
themselves with an easy day.
Waterbury was taking a few fial
flingsat the crosstbar,and attained
a very credible height before he called
it enough. A number of the quarter-
,milers were out, but many of the rest
of the squad tooka half holiday.
The meet will start promptly at 7:30
i Elgibilty Determined.
Michigan's athletes will be passed
upon by the eligibility board before the
meet to determine whether Steve will
be granted a full complement of men,
or to see whether he will find his
ranks thinned by the fire of the fac-
Notre Dame won but four first
places at Illinois. Mulligan won the
75-yard dash in. eight seconds, with
Captain Miller right behind him. Mee-
han turned in 4:36 3-5 in the mile,
and Captain Miller took down 521-5
seconds in the quarter, with McDo-
ough in second place. Bachman heaved
the shot 40 feet 4 inches and Franz
took a nitch below him in this event.
The mile record and the shot put
should not bother the Wolverines. In
the latter Farrell is looking for two
and possibly three places.
The events which will be held are
as follows: 50-yard dash, 440-yard
dash, 880-yard run, mile run, 60-yard
high hurdles, high Jump, pole vault,
shot put, and two-lap relay race.
Three places will be given in each
event except the relay, where the win-
ner will accumulate five points to zero
for the loser.

ing the University for the second se-
mester are a four-fold tennis champion
and an ex-Al-fresh pitcher.

ter Westbrook of Detroit, holder of
the junior and senior singles cham-

track teams.
'Harold Payette, former Olivet col-
lege hurler and star spit-ballist of
the 1914 freshman baseball team, has
entered school and reported yester-
day to Captain Elmer Brandell at the

addition to the tIock of moundsmen
who are out for this year's nine.
V. Wright, Kalamazoo, Near Death

electrical engineer, was stricken with
heart trouble yesterday shortly after
he had alighted from a westbound

frlihigan Boxing
Club Plans Bouts
One of Michigan's newest athletic
branches-the U. of M. Boxing club-
is planning a boxing exhibition to be
given under the auspices of the club
March 15. Four bouts of two rounds
each will be held at the Union. Each
round will be three minutes.
Selection of men for the bouts has
been placed under the direction of W.
S. Westerman, instructor In boxing.
As far as possible, the opposing boxers
will be men of practically the same
weight and ability.
Members of the club hope to put on
a featherweight, lightweight, welter-
weight, and heavyweight bout during
the evening.
Eight of the best men in the Uni-
versity will be selected by Wester-
man on March 23 to wear the insignia
of the organization-a sweater with
the initials "U. B. C." on it., The club
is planning to give to each of its mem-
bers the right to wear a minature
silver glove with the same initials en-
graved on it. At present there are 25
members In the organization.
Interest Is Aroused.
The object of the exhibition is to
stimulate interest among University
men to take up boxing. Consistent
work and ability are the requisites for
election to the club, which is open to
anyone in the University.
Since the formation of the new club
several weeks ago, boxing has taken
a big jump at Michigan. Westerman

stated yesterday that he has never
seen as much interest in the gloved
sport since he has been connected
with the University. The club is con-
templating an enlargement of its mem-
bership in the near future.
No outside matches are contem-
plated this year, as club members do
not think the scheme advisable the
first season.
Max Cutting, '17E, Al Clark, '18E,
and W. L. Plummer, '20, have been
appointed officials for the meet.
Fresh Lits Defeat Fresh Engineers
Yearling lits were successful in tak-
ing the measure of the first year boil-
ermakers in a fast hockey tilt yes-
terday afternoon. The final tally
stood 6-4.
