Kesler sprang one of the surprises
of the evening by winning the pole
climb. Jerry topped the bar at 11
feet his first shot. The best the three
other contstants at this height could
do was to miss three tries. All. dope
had it that both Edgren and Yeager
would at least be able to climb 11
feet if not more. Big Bachman kept
the crowd guessing ror some time by
pushing his bulk over the bar up to
the final leap. Kesler did not try
to elevate himself above the mark
necessary to grasp first honors.
In the relay Michigan lost the race
early when Horr allowed Miller to
get away with the 10-yard lead before
the exchange of the baton. Horr
seemed to tire during the last hun-
dred yards, for up to that time he and
the Notre Dame captain were running
on practically even terms. Kasper
and 'Hardell staged a pretty duel in
the second relay, with the Michigan
candidate getting a little the best of
the bargain. Scofield tried hard to
gain on McDonough but the poor ex-
change of batons at the start of the
former's race turned the tide against
him. Fontanna did his best. to re-
duce the distance which Meehan had
at the start, but .the Catholic man
finished under the wraps 12 yards in
the lead.

With play increasing in speed and
players reaching mid-season form,
eight teams remain in the round pre-
ceding the semi-finals of the fratern-
ity and boarding house basketball

league. The following teams are still j'yBiRe c
in hopes of winning possession of the
mahogany mantle clock offered as Ithaca, N. Y., Feb. 17.--Coach


The Varpity mentor stated yesterday
that every man who expects to try-
out for a berth on the team should
turn out for the initial practice tomor-
row. Actual work will be given the
candidates although only the old net
will be up for the session.
Prospects for the season are excel-
lent according to the coach and are
considerably better than last year's.
He is especially pleased with the out-
look for a strong pitching staff, with
Miller, Robins, Ohlmacher, Glenn and
Parks, all men of considerable ex-
perience ready to compete for places.
The chances are that they will all be
used. With three regular outfielders
back this year difficulty of finding
steeplechasers is eliminated. Captain
Brandell, Billy Niemann, and Guy
Reem played the far positions last sea-
son and unless Captain Brandell is
shifted back to his old berth at short-
stop, will have the call for their re-
spective former stamping grounds
Whether the Varsity leader will
play in the infield again or remain out
in the suburbs is a question. Neither
the captain nor the coach appear to
know or care to state anything de-
finite on that point. It depends upon
whether the infield candidates are of
sufficient character and in large
enough numbers to make the shift
Last year the pitching staff had to
be found almost entirely new. The
material had to be discovered and
whipped into shape Outfielders with
the exception of Billy Niemann were
unknown quantities. This year the
hurlers are back with others added to
the list, and the entire regular outfield
is again on hand and eligible. Both
of these problems of last season are
no longer existent.
The elegibility epedemic has thus far
been pretty well confined in baseball
circles and bids fair to be staved off
with the exception of one or two cases.
If no further mortalities are to be re-
ported the chances for a strong team
are better than have been known for
several seasons past according to
prophecies of those in charge.
Practice will begin promptly tomor-
row at 1 o'clock and will last until
o'clock. Every man must be on hand
in order to get the benefit of the full

Four Win Insignia
Four Michigan athletes won aMa's
by their performances last evening.
The quartet to annex their first points
at the expense of the Hoosiers are
Beardsley, Haigh, Bouma, and Sedg-
Nothwithstanding the fact that all
the records established last night are
new gym records, none of them with
the possible exception of the shot put,
dash, and hurdles are expected to'
withstand the onslaught of the Cor-
nell-Michigan tussle next month.
Windnagle, Richards, etal., can be
fully expected to give everyone pres-
ent a large evening in the quest for
very capable performances.

places out of the nine events.

Palo Alto, Cal., Feb. 17. - Track
teams of the far western colleges have
at last been booked for a confer-
ence meet, and the first annual inter-
collegiate competitions of the Pacific
coast group will be held at the Uni-
versity of Washington on May 19.
Stanford is regarded as the probable
winner in the pre-season calculations,
partly by reason of the excellent show-
ing made by the Palo Alto men in the
eastern intercollegiates last June.
Much promising material is in sight.
Lackmund, who was not in school last
year, has returned, and will be a big
aid in the 100 and 200 yard dashes.
House, last season's freshman, who
furnished a surprise for the sporting
world with his remarkable hurdling,
is expected to replace Fred Murray,
who was graduated last spring, in the
hurdling squad. Wark and Floete, two
other cubs last year, are also expected
to become point winners.

Saginaw and Alphena high school have
not given definite promises to enter,
but state a possibility. Bay City West-
ern, thus far, has shown as the besl
of these six teams, winning all of its
games, while Flint has lost every

Arthur Hill high school has won from
Bay City Eastern 26-21, from Flint 22-

to Alphena 24-25, and to Saginaw. Bay
City Eastern has won from Flint 34-
19 and from Saginaw, and has lost to
Bay City Western 26-27 and to Arthur
From newspaper accounts of games
between these schools it is possibly
to single out a number of first class
players. McGregor has been starring
for Saginaw, while Brooks and Brittor
are mentioned frequently in accounts
of the team from Arthur Hill.
Pacynski, forward for Bay City
Western, has had a big share in put-
ting his team in the lead with a clear
string of wins. Adams and Moulthrop,
have kept things humping around East
Bay City.

The last few matches which have
been the fastest and most interest-
ing of the season, have also resulted
in upsetting the dope. Probably the
greatest surprise to followers of the
series was the defeat of the fast Delta

representatives. Althongh the Arcadia
team has shown some good basketball
this season all the dope pointed to a
victory for the Delta Upsilon aggrga-

were expected by many to win the
championship for their fraternity. The.
result is that close followers of the
sport and of the league are turning
to watch further action from the,
Arcadia quintet.
