Johnson, Wolverine, Leads with 12
Points; Helpel, Scott High, Runs
Mile in 4:38:1.
Forbes, Stoll, Baker, Cagney, and
Froeinke Annex Valuable Points;
Verdants Win Relay
Taking first in every event but one,
the All-fresh track team romped away
with the Scott-Waite aggregation in
last nights meet at Waterman gym,
61 to 16. The yearlings showed prob-
ably the most promising set of coming
stare that Michigan's first year team
has ever been able to boast. In the
short and middle distance runs the
Wolverine cubs were invincible, and
their performances in the jumps were
highly creditable. It was only in the
mile that any real weakness was un-
covered, and this may be due to the
fact that the Toledoans in this event
were extraordinarily good, rather
than that the Michiganders were un-
commonly bamd.
The meet was replete with sensa-
tions but the work of Johnson, the
lanky verdant, stood out above all the
other features of the evening. This
energetic young person succeeded in
breaking the tape in both the 50-yard
dash and the low hurdles, leading both
times by a most goodly margin. He
then proceeded to sho the boys a bit
of high-jumping, and, although visibly
tired by his previous exertions, he
tied for second place in this event,
making a total contribution of 12
counters to the yearlings cause. His
time in the dash, 5 and 3-5 seconds,
compares favorably with the marks set
by the Wolverine Varsity sprinters.
Next to Johnson's scintillations, the
work of Heipel, the plucky Scott high
miler, was the most noteworthy per-
formance of the meet.. The little Mau-
meean simply ran away with the mile.
making the startling time of 4 minutes;
38 and 1-5 seconds. He led his com-
petitors by a big margin all the way
finishing with a terrific sprint of al-
-most two laps. When it is remembered'
that Eddie Carroll, who is considered
one of the finest milers in the country,I

urday, the accomplishment of this boy.
a junior in high school, can more easi-
ly be appreciated. In a half, after fol-
lowing Schuster and Stoll most of the
way, he came through with another4
heart-breaking sprint and took second
Quarter Is Stiffest Contest
The most hotly contested race of the
meet was the quarter-mile, wher i
Forbes, Butler, and Hunt broke the
tape almost abreast. Scarcely a foot1
separated the first man from the last.
The time was 54 seconds flat, the same
as that hung up by Le Scofield against
Notre Dame. Forbes, the winner, suf-
fered a rather painful injury when he{
collided with a steel upright on the
turn in his first lap, but stuck pluck-
ily to his task, with the result above
recorded. The half mile was another
hair-raising struggle, Stoll, Heipelt

Varsity baseball practice suffered
another reverse yesterday at the hands
)f track. Owing to the coming fresh
tracksters debut last night, the stage
had to be set and the seats arranged
for the spectators of the event with
the consequence that baseball practice
had to be abandoned for the day.
The coach and Captain Brandell are
both desirous of starting batting prac-
tice as soon as possible. As yet the
new nets ordered have not arrived
and it is probable that no attempt
will be made to get batting eyes in
fighting trim until Doctor May's gym
is amply protected from wild swats.
The pitchers are not yet in the best
shape for throwing to the batters and
the coach is not anxious to have them
exposed to the blood thirsty barbarians
of the willow until they can make it
'nteresting for the latter.
The list of prospective pitchers is
rather formidable, something like a
score of north and south-paws being
out for each other's scalp, but they
aave not had sufficient time to coax
the old wing back into shape. How-
aver, it was stated that they would
probably be given an opportunity to
match their breaks against the keer
swatting eyes of the candidates for
high batting averages about the middle
)f this week. It is possible that there
will be no such practice until the lat-
ter part of this week or the fi'st of
next week, but if everything &orks
out well the men will have a chance
to get out the pet Louisville Slugge
before then.
The battle for the guardianship o'
,he first stop around the bases shou
be particularly keen this season.

With Cornell still silent regarding
the bowling match supposed to have
been played last Saturday, Michigan's
pin team continued its schedule Fri-
day night by rolling the third contest
of the season against M. A. C. The
Wolverine half of the scrap with the
Farmers was cleared up a day early,
as allowed by the rules governing the
In the case of Cornell, the question
remains unsolved. According to the
rules each contestant must send its re-
sults to the opposing side within 24
hours by wire and within 48 hours by
mail. As the Ithacan scores are great-
ly overdue it is generally supposed
that the New Yorkers were not able to
uphold their end of the matcn. Because
postponements are ruled out, it is
probable that the Michigan squad will
win the games by default.
In the M. A. C. dispute, the Wol-
verines bowled three consistent totals
but the team average dropped some-
what below the marks of the first two
contests. The Lansing outfit rolled its
games last night as scheduled and the
results are expected to arrive some
time today.
Michigan marked the following
scores against M. A. C.:
Schoepfie ..........204 177 152
Carlson ..........197 165 158
Diederichs .........161 144 191
Thrun .............134 176 150

Class Relays to
Include 18 Teams
With 18 teams representing various
classes and departments entered, the
annual class relay races to be started

keen competition.
The first drawings were made yes-
terday by Intramural Director Rowe.
All teams will compete in the first
round, and the eight istest teams will
advance into the second round. The
remaining teams will be allowed an
acditional ;"ial to qualify for the semi-

Track Workers Amuse Interested Vis-
itors to Steve's Do-
Everyone had a large time over at
Waterman gym yesterday afternoon.
The fun started when Pat Smith bet
Cec Cross on the result of a 50-yard
dash between the two Varsity shot
putters. In justice to Pat, it must be
said that the football captain gave Cec
a yard handicap.
Cec had a difficult job to keep. from
starting when Steve Farrell, at the
back end of the starting gun finished

"get set." But Pat had even more
trouble. Twice the pair tried to beat
the gun, and when the third try at
a start was made Pat became so ner-
vous that Steve had to give the ath-
letes a moment's breathing spell. Fin-
ally the pair got off without getting
a five yard handicap on the 22 barker.
Pat had some difficulty keeping with-
in two lanes of the sprinting stretch,
while Cec was but little better off.
From an aesthetic point of view the
set-to was a hummer. Cec finally
ended the spectacle by reaching the
tape half a yard in advance of the puf-
fing Pat.
About 15 minutes later a delegation
from the Volunteer Students' conven-
tion entered the gym. Jerry Kesler was
navigating the ploe vault at about 10
feet six inches. As the diminutive
senior cleared the obstacle, feminine
voices were heard to utter such phras-
es as "Isn't he grand," "How does he
do it," and other characteristic say-

and Schuster finishing in the order
named with about a two foot space be-
tween each man.
Baker, the corn-fed Wolverine shot-
putter, tossed the leaden pill a pal-
try 47 feet 7 and 3-4 inches from the
circle, which announcement caused a
near-riot in the stands until it was
discovered that the young man was
using a 12-pound shot instead of the
regular 16-pound pellet. At that, Bak-
er's effort was far from poor and big
things may be expected from him in
the near future.
Moorhead Other Dangerous Visitor
Cagney, in the dash, and Froemke, in
the hurdles, though finishing second in
each case to the ubiquitious Mr. John-
son, covered the ground in very oc-
ceptable style. Moorhead was the only
Toledo man other than Heipel to cause
the Wolverine younsters mucth anx-
iety. This.man pressed Cagney very
close in the sprint and tied with
Johnson for second in the high jump.
C. Later captured the last named event
with a leap of 5 feet 6 inches.
The relay was capturedsby the
freshmen in rather easy fashion, and
the pole-vault, the last event on the
program, was a slam for the verdants.

The one disappointing feature of the
meet was the failure of the freshman
class to support the bearers of its
colors. There was a crowd of only
500 people in the gym and less than
200 of these were freshmen. In a class
of 1500, this is rather a disheartening
showing for the men who are ar-
ranging the meets. The yearling team

Conference Situation

Jimmy Newell probably has the call
on most of the candidates, as he play-
ed first for the Varsity for the great-
er part of last season. However, there
are others out who can be counted
upon to give all entries a race. Weh-
meyer has been showing up well thus
far and has been out working regular-
ly, while Cooper, the first-sacker of
the 1916 yearlings is not to be disre-
garded in doping out possibilities.
Cooper is a brand of utility man and
might easily be shifted to another pos-
ition, but at present he is battling
for the initial station. Gardner is
the other candidate who declared his
intentions of landing this job. Which
of the four will become permanently
naturalized is, a question. Hitting
ability may be the deciding factor.
Only Four Games Remain in Inter-
class Schedule
Owing to the absence of Capt. Opal
of the senior and junior hockey team,
the game scheduled today between
the fresh engineers and the combined
forces of the two upper lit classes
was postponed until Thursday.
The remainder of the schedule fol-
Monday, Feb. 26-Dents vs. senior-
junior its.
Tuesday, Feb. 27-Fresh engineers
vs. sophomore engineers.
Wednesday, Feb. 28-Fresh lits vs.
senior-junior Tits.
Thursday, Feb. 29-Fresh engineers
vs. senior-junior lits.
