Athletic Stars Do Not

Half and Mile Should Go in Fast Time
for Gym Race; Other Events
Michigan will take the boards
against Notre Dame this evening
minus a few of her athletes due to the
results of the past semester.
The administrative board inflicted
much less severe losses in its on-
slaught on Farrell's men this year
than last, however. Steve is conse-
quently a little brighter than usual.
No matter how poor a record is
hung up at the meet this evening, it
will be a gym record. This is owing
to the fact that the gym has been re-
modeled. It is not expected that espe-
cially excellent marks in any of the
events will be registered. Farrell is
determined not to work his men
harder than necessary, and he is not
looking for a very stiff bunch of in-
dividuals on the Catholic.
Several of the events should be bet-
ter than ordinary, however. The half
mile will afford the spectators a
chance to see a real battle with Fox,
Sedgwick, and Bouma competing
against McDonough, Noonan, and Call.
In the mile Carroll may have to ex-
tend himself quite a little, as the
Catholics are said to have a couple
of clever performers in this . event.
The hurdles and the 50-yard dash
should also see fast time, and the quar-
ter-mile should be clocked in close
to 51 seconds.
Cross can be expected to hurl the
shot in the neighborhood of 44 feet,
and Simmons will extend himself close
to the six-foot mark if it is necessary
to win the high jump. A pretty duel
should take place between Kessler and
Yeager in the pole vault with the
Notre Dame man looking best on pa-
The meet, which will begin promptly
at 7:30 o'clock, will include the fol-
lowing entries:
50-yard dash-Notre Dame: Berg-

gan: O'Brien, Horr,. Scofield, Parks,

That the average athlete does not
take kindly to the glare of the calicum
is shown by the fact that in the last
three years only nine men who have
worn Wolverine athletic regalia have
lended their bulky presences to the
Union operas produced during that
period. Of this number but one man,
Morrie Dunne, has been the possessor
of an M. Morrie also is the only "ath-
aleet" to attain the dignity of a mem-
ber of the cast, the other eight de-
votees of the combined virtues of the
sweat-shirt and the wig having ail
been members of the chorus. Need it
be nececsary to say that none of these
athletically-inclined young men were
listed as ponies.
The 1915 opera, "All That Glitters,"
proved a greater temptation to the
heroes of the gridiron, diamond, and,
cinder path, than have the two pro-
ductions succeeding it. In that year
the Whitney stage groaned under the

weight of five huskily-built young
men, including Morrie Dunne, who
took the part of a chauffeur in the
cast and also put on an aesthetic
{lance. and four chorus songsters;
