Yearling Track Squad Opens Tonight
Against Select Team from
JOHNSON, CAGNET, BUTLER
LOOM UP BRIGHT FOR FRESHMEN
and Heupell of Visitors
Out of Meet
Michigan's 1917 All-fresh track
team will make its first bow to the
campus tonight when it meets the
combined forces of Scott and Waite
high schools of Toledo in a dual meet.
The two Maumee city teams held a
set-to last - week and the best per-
formers in that meet, regardless of
school, were picked to compete against
the yearlings tonight. The result will
be an unusually strong high school
The verdants have had no chance
to show their wares in public yet,
but from the form they have shown in
practice, they should stow away the
Maumeeans with comparative ease. In
fact, the present first year squad is
one of the best looking greenie out-
fits that has graced theMichigan cin-
der path in some years. It seems to
be well fortified in all events, with
the possible exception of the Jumps.
Johnson, who comes from Spokane
with an enviable reputation as a prep
school track star, has shown himself
to be an extremely versatile athlete.
Three events, the 50-yard dash, the
hurdles, and the high jump will con-
stitute his evening's work tonight. Be-
sides this, he is said to be quite a per-
former in the broad Jump.
Cagney and Dornick are promising
lookingsprinter. The latter is the
Huntington, W. Va., lad who captured
the broad jump in last spring's inter,-
scholastic meet with a leap of 21 feet
111-2 inches. He entered the Univer-
sity at the beginning of the second
Larry Butler, the Indianapolis
speedster, bids fair to rank with some
of Michigan's fleetest quarter-milers,
if khe keeps up the pace he is setting
at present. Schuster and Stoll, in the
half, also look like comers. Baker, the
big shot-putter, placed second in all
the weight events at last year's inter-
scholastic. Belknap, another strong
man in these events, will be unable to
compete tonight, owing to a quaran-
tine at his home which has prevented
him from returning to school thus far.
Other men who are likely to show
well in tonight's tussle are Hunt and
Forbes, quarter-milers; Froemke,
hurdler; Robertson and Cross, pole
vaulters, and Batty, miler.
The Toledo aggregation presents
two men who will undoubtedly cause
trouble for the yearlings. These men
are Moorhead, sprinter, and Heupell,
miler. The former took seconds in
the 100 and 220at the interscholastics
and the latter romped away with the
mile. His time was 4 minutes 38 and
1-5 seconds, tieing the Michigan inter-
scholastic record in this event.
The meet will begin at 7:30 o'clock
sharp. Admission will be by athletic
coupon number 13.

The Old Stuff of
David vs. Goliath
Steve Farrell was putting a bunch
of freshmen track candidates through
their paces the other afternoon, when
a little fellow, with an elastic stride
walked into the gym.
After talking with the 1. f. for a few
minutes, Steve beckoned to his squad
of freshmen trackers to give the visit-
or the once over. Steve introduced
the subject something like this:
"Look him over boys. He's pretty
small, and he graduated from Michigan
just past 20, but this person holds the
Michigan record in the half mile, and
ran the fastest 880 that ever was turn-
ed in on Ferry field."
The freshmen gave the visitor the
double "0." A few of the more cur-
ious and still unenlightened ones pro-
ceeded to the running track and looked
over the Michigan records. There they
found the name of Joe Ufer opposite
the half mile record.
Moral-Maulbetsch was an All-Am-
erican halfback with a total displace-
ment of 155 pounds. Joe Ufer is the
holder of Michigan's 880-yard run.
Tommy Hughitt is Yost's choice for
his second All-Michigan team. Tom-
my, during his last year at Ann Ar-
bor, tipped the bar at 142 pounds.
SMITH WANTS FOOTBALL
MEN TO WORK IN GYM
SYRACUSE TRAC TEAM
OFFERS STRONG IGHT
FIND ORANG EMEN ARE UNDERES-
TIMATED; CROSS TAKES EASY
LEAD IN SHOT EVENT
Two extremely closely-matched
teams in a wonderful cinder-track bat-
tle is the way Coach Steve Farrell
characterizes the tussle Thursday be-
tween the Michigan and Syracuse
track teams. According to the guider
of the Wolverine destinies, the Orange-
men were a greatly under-rated aggre-
gation. This is not to be construed as
meaning that the Michigan squad was
defeated by over-confidence, as this
was most emphatically not the case.
Every man did as welltascouldtbe ex-
pected of him and those that were
beaten were beaten by better men.
Two men who outdid thmeselves at
the easterner's bailiwick were Cap-
tain Eddie Carroll and Ce Cross.
The Wolverine leader had everything
his own way in the mile. the result
never being in doubt. In the half,
however, he was not able to show his
usual form, due to the strain of the
former race. Cross made the eyes of
the Orange followers pop out when he
tossed the leaden pellet 44 feet 6
inches away from his manly form,
thereby denting the Syracuse's gym
record. This, however, refers only to
the labors of Syracuse men, the re-
cords made by opposing athletes not
being included on the Archbold gym-
nasium rolls. The longest heave ever
negotiated in the Methodist stronghold
was probably made by Beattie, Col-
umbia's great weight thrower.
Sedgwick, the sophomore miler, was
outdistanced by his captain and the
two veteran Syracusans but stuck
gamely to his task and succeeded in
moving up on his rivals before the
race was over. This man has still
many thinhgs to learn about the trade
of mile-running but he has the right
spirit and there are those who think
he will make a name for himself be-
fore he is finally handed his sheep-
Little was done by the Varsity
tracksters in the way of practice yes-
terday afternoon, as Coach Farrell was
busy grooming his yearling speeders
for their meet tonight. Some of the
men, however, took light workouts.
After the freshman tussle is off his
hands, the coach intends to begin work
in earnest for the invitation meet at
Urbana, in which the Wolverines will
compete next Saturday.
INTERCLASS BASKETBALL TO

final games out of the way, there has
been some delay in arranging a sched-

first of the annual interclass clashes.

With the scores of last Saturday

members of the Wolverine bowling
squad are at present anxiously await-
ing some word from Cornell as to theI
mark set by their opponents. Usual-
ly the games are rolled on local alleys
and the respective scores telegraphed
to the opponents within 43 hours. It is
probable that the Cornell team was

The total number of names on the

Many Have Ability at Bat
Coach Lundgren stated that he ex-
pected the team to show an improve-
ment over the 1916aggregation along
batting lines. Nearly all the possible
ties this season have some ability with
the willow and most of the veterans
can connect with the ball for a fair
percentage at least.
Last year's outfield were a fairly
formidable string of swatsmen. Cap-
tain Labadie of the 1916 lineup could
clout the horse hide with fair regular-
ity, while Bran, the leader of the pres-
ent hopefuls, was one of the' main-
stays at the bat. Billy.Niemann show-
ed a consistent tendency towards
breaking bats, and registered corres-
ponding popularity with the manage-
ment. Guy Reem was another depend-
able hitter. Three of these four will
boost the average this season.
Last Year's Fresh Good Hitters
Most of the members of the 1916
All-fresh squad were good hitters and
showed their opponents some pointers
on several occasions. Dancer, Parks,
Kirchgessner, while none of them
Cobbs or Bakers, could all lay onto
a timely hit with some consistency.
Last night the team opposed M. A.
C. in the match which was scheduled
for tonight. The Lansing team is re-
ported to have a staff of capable pin
spillers and Michigan's squad stepped
upon the alleys last evening with the
determination to set the highest score
of the year. The results of this contest
will be published as soon as the Farm-
ers bowl and send in their scores.'
During the past week the team
has been practicing under the super-
vision of Wright, Schoepfie thetregular
captain, having been forced to leave
town for a few days.
Michigan's scores against Cornell
are as follows:

__ -February 25. 1917
Candidates for the Varsity 1917 foot-
ball team have not been working out
in the gym as they did last year.
Authorities are of the opinion that
the football material in the University
will be physically bettered by taking
an hour's workout in the gym three
days a week. Captain-elect Smith yes-
terday concurred in this attitude.
"The success or failure of the 1917
team may depend upon the condition
of the men who are, to play. I have
seen a number of the men who are
candidates for the team, and will
get in touch with others," Pat stated
Very few of the men to date have
shown any interest in this sort of
keeping in condition. Coach Yost has
often expressed the wish that Michi-
gan football players keep in condition
the year round. Yost has taken the
attitude that a football player will be
much more successful if he aims for
a Varsity place throughout the year,
instead of the period during which
actual scrimmages and signal practice
are held on Ferry field.
Candidates for the football team
who are to work out in the gym this
winter are expected to get into touch
with the captain to inform him as to
what dates they expect to work out.
