Basketball with Awful Results

Michigan's board in control of ath-
letics meets on Thursday afternoon.
Athletic Director Bartelme an-
nounced yesterday that the schedules
which had not been made public thus,
far would be issued at this time, but
further than that he was silent. It
seems highly improbable that the
Doard would convene merely for the
purpose of ratifying a couple of fresh-
men schedules, and the recent confer-
ence agitation relative to Michigan's
possible re-entrance, is recalled.
There has been considerable west-
ern conference talk and numerous
rumors in middle western publications
the past few months, but the Michigan
athletic authorities have steadfastly
refused to commit themselves. The
question has been discussed at nearly
all Michigan alumni associations, but
zn the meanwhile nothing official can
be learned.
Thursday's meeting occurs in the
afternoon. Following its adjournment
a handful of athletic bookings will b.
issued. , Will there be anything else?
The campus watched the last meeting
for possible developments. Nothing
Will Thursday be the same?
Jack Benton, former Varsity catcher
and football man, has been signed by
the Chicago Cubs.
Benton will leave with the squad
today for the spring training trip. He
caught for the Wolverines when the
Michigan marvel, George Sisler, was
twirling. Benton played end on the
tootball team and was a better flanker
than he was receiver during his col-
lege course. He is a big man and un-
usually fast on his feet.
Dr. Scott to Speak in Grand Rapids
Doctor Jonathan F. Scott will speak
before the Daughters of the American
Revolution of Grand Rapids Thursday
afternoon, Feb. 22. His subject will
be "Patriots in the Making," and he
will deal with the theory of teaching
patriotism in the schools.

Basketball as she has never been
basketed before was served up the
other day by a collection of the young
hoodlums who are out for Coach
Lundgren's 1917 baseball team.
The horse-hide heavers had spent
the greater part of the afternoon
bouncing the pellet to and fro across
Doc May's brand new gym floor, much
to the disgust of Steve Farrell, who
was busy figuring out what effect the
rapidly-appearing dents would have
on the s eed of his dash men in the.

The matter was finally compromised
by deciding that if the ball went
through both holes on the same shot,
it was to count five points, if it only
went through one, it was to count

Steve's Boys Come Out-of Notre Dame
Duel in First Class
Performances of Kesler and Sedgwick
Agreeably Surprise
With the Notre Dame meet safely
out of the way, Coach Steve Farrell's
Wolverine track artists ate now bend-
ing every effort in preparation for the
tussle with Syracuse in the Salt City
'Thursday night. The Maize and Blue
cinder-burners came out of the Cath-
olic argument in fine shape and ex-
pect to feed the Orangemen a little
of the same medicine as the South
Benders were forced to partake of
Saturday night.
Little is known of the caliber of the
Methodist spiked-shoe squad. Reports
from the eastern stronghold would in-
dicate a much weaker team than those
of the past few years. "Lack of ma-
terial" seems to be the continual cry
of distress flungbout by Coach Toni
Strong in Long Runs
Curtis, Syracuse's only point-win-
ner in the last intercollegiate meet,
has been lost by graduation. In the
sprints, Bowzer, star dash man of the
1915 squad, has returned to school
and is showing well. Ayers, former
Adrian college football luminary, is
also performing in the short runs.
White and Watson!, the pick of. the
cross-country team that was seen in
action here last fall, are doing good
work in the mile.
The Orangemen are rather strongly
fortified in the half-mile, Michigan's
weak event, having as contenders Cap-
tain Newkirk and Peterson, who holds
the Syracuse record in the 880. Bernie
Brown, high hurdler, took third in the
120-yard high-hurdles at the national
junior track and field championships
at Newark last fall. Andy Schultz,
Orange mainstay in the shot-put, won
out in the pill-heaving contest in every
dual encounter indulged in by the
Methodists last year.
Kesler and Sedgwick Surprise
Coach Farrell was agreeably sur-
prisedaduring thetrecent strife with
the Catholics by the antics of some
of his men. Kesler and Sedgwick es-
pecially brought the chortles from the
teacher's lips. Edgren, the blonde
Hoosier soarer, was doped as certain
winner of the pole-vault, and Jerry's
feat of copping was a complete sur-
prise to everyone. The work of Sedg-
wick, the sophomore miler, when he
finished close behind Eddie Carroll aft-

to affirm or deny the report.
The yearlings should have a strong

equally fast in the 440 and hurdles,

But Forty Candidates Show Up for
Lundgren's Initial Call for
Coach Gives Instructions on How to
Stop Rollers to All But
Only about 40 candidates answered
the first call for Varsity baseball prac-
tice in Waterman gym yesterday.
Coach Lundgren appeared disappoint-
ed by the fsilure of a larger number
to report and intimated that probably
half of the men who should be out
either overlooked the date for the first
practice or did not see the announce-
All men who expect to try out for a
place are expected to turn out for
practice immediately. A blank list for
the names and positions of men trying
out was posted on the north wall of
the gym yesterday, but at 3 o'clock
very few names were down. All can-
didates are expected to sign up on this
tablet upon coming out.
Many More Out Last Year.
In comparison with the initial turn-
out which was the result of the first
call last year, the bunch reporting yes-
terday afternoon looks like the rem-
nant of a war. As compared to 70
men answering Coach Lundgren's
summons last season, a maximum of 40
this year shows a bad decrease.
The following names were signed
on the list yesterday:
Catchers-Eager, Keen, Mattson, Un-
derwood, and Morrison.
Pitchers-Parks, Pettegren, Cutting,
Hildner, Crockett, Saunders, Birming-
ham, Van Cleef, McAllister, and God-
First base-Wehmeyer.
Third base-King.
Outfield-Trost and Van Cleef.
The fewness of the names was prob-
ably due to the fact that only a small
number saw the tablet.
Practice consisted in stopping rollers
for those not listed as battery men,
and in warming up workouts for the
hurlers. The coach personally dem-
onstrated how to go after the ball and
set his proteges a rather fast pace.
McGinnis' Last Year Men Out.
Last year's All-fresh furnished a
fair-sized proportion of the candidates.
Horwitz, third sacker for the 1916
fresh; Middleditch, who - held down
second for McGinnis' appregation; in-
fielder, Labadie; first sacker, Cooper;

King, another third baseman; Garrett
and Kirchgessner, outfielders, and
Morrison, catcher. Neither Dancer,
Glenn, nor Parks appeared in a suit
Of the 1916 Varsity only six repre-
sentatives were on the floor: Captain
Brandell, Billy Niemann, Walterhouse,
Morrie Dunne, Ohlmacher and Birm-
ingham. Of these, the first two are
outfielders, one shortstop, a catcher,
and two twirlers. Walterhouse made
his first appearance on the floor yes-
terday. Neither-Shorty Miller nor
Joe Robins has as yet reported. Reem
and Newell were not out.

from the right food combined with rational exercise.
The right food is
Shredded Wheat
-the favorite food of men who do things in the class-
room and on the athletic field. It contains all the
muscle-building, brain-making material in the whole
wheat grain made digestible by steam-cooking, shred-
ding and baking. It puts gimp and ginger into the
tired brain and worn-out body. It is on the training
table of nearly every college and university in the

games have given it preference over all other foods.
