In a surprisingly one-sided affair
Tuesday night the Arcadia basket
tossers humbled the Phi Delta Theta
squad to a score of 30 to 5 and as a
direct result find themselves facing the
Trigon quintet in the deciding match
of the fraternity and boarding house
basketball league.
Matters have at last reached the
crisis and tonight at 7:30 o'clock is
the time set for the championship con-
test featuring the aforementioned Ar-
cadia and Trigon forces. Dope does-
n't point strongly in either direction.
Both teams come with a reputation par
excellence and the two sides each have
men whose ability in the game ha,
been of the best quality during 'the
Trigon Has Numerous Athletes
In the Trigon array we find several
men noted in other branches o ath-
letics as well as basketball. Cruse,
who has helped his team into the fin-
als, is a football man said to have
graced the scrubs and in Ohlmacher
we have a Varsity baseball man. Cart.
wright, undoubtedly the individual star
of the organization, has shown his
prowess before and was chosen All-
campus guard last spring. This out-
fit has been working consistently ur-
ing the series and can be counted
on to produce its best this evening.
In the Arcadia warriors the follow-
ers of Trigon will find their equals.
Although a fast team from the start
this aggregation has made a name for
itself through its playing in the second
round which immediately followed the
first general elimination at the end of
the first semester.
Arcadia Going Strong
Arcadia seems to have gained impet-
us as the season progressed and has
a record showing some victories by
abnormally large scores. As individ-
uals the men are equally strong. In
the first place the team has at its
service Hammond, All-campus center
and a player of no mediocre quality.
Another man who has shown well is
Walls, also known through his shot
putting tendency.
All those interested or curious can
locate the final contest by reporting at

sion will be free to all and a large

Hurlers Beginning to Find Hop
Their Fast Ones But Bats
Can't Be Used


Coach Will Make No Cuts Until Wil-
low Swingers Get
Coach Lundgren stated yesterday
that batting practice would be inaug-
urated as soon as possible for the
baseball candidates. The Varsity
mentor said that the pitchers were
getting into good enough shape to
protect themselves in the cage and
that as soon as the nets came hitting
practice would be indulged in.
The exact day of the advent of the'
willows cannot be set until the nets
arrive, but they are due any day and
the chances are that the hurlers will
get a chance to show their wares be-
fore the heavy sluggers some time dur-
ing this week. The coach stated that
he would like to start the work by
Saturday at the latest and sooner.
While the absence of the nets is not
yet holding back progress, if the de-
lay is lasting that result will obtain
very soon.
As to the fact that the pitchers can
protect themselves some of the am-
bitious laity of the infield and outfield
are showing signs of anxiety along
the other extreme. The fear seems to
be rather prevalent that if the twirl-
ers are given much more leeway in
the matter of time they will get so
much smoke and hook on the b11 that
the common herd will not be able to
connect with said pill for many
healthy swats. They appear to be con-
vinced that they will not be able to
lose the ball when all the candidates
for the moundsmen's union open up
with their heavy artillery.
Coach Lundgren stated that no of-
ficial cuts would be made until after
he had seen some batting practice.
Philadelphia, Feb. 28. - If indoor
track records are not smashed to
smithereens here Saturday night, it
won't be because of lack of material
nor lack of proper environment, when
stars from all the big universities of
the east will be pitted against each
other in a grapple for supremacy.
The big "Derby" will be staged in
the exposition building under the au-
spices of the University of Pennsyl-
vania athletic association, and will be-
gin at 8 o'clock in the evening. Thous-
ands of spectators from all parts of the
country are expected to be on hand.
The events of the meet will include
all the regular contests for the under-
classmen from the various institutions,
and also a post mortem relay race
for the alumni, which will be partici-
pated in by former stars of Harvard,
Pennsylvania, Dartsmouth, and other
universities. Ted Meredith, '16, cap-
tain of the Pennsylvania track team

is expected to be one of the favorities
in the races.
Others that will be in the lime light
will be Alva Richards and Windnagle
of Cornell, Captain Farwell of Yale,
Jim Braden, famous Yale sprinter,
Captain Wilcox of Harvard, Teschner
the Harvard sprinter, and Captain Bil-
ly Moore of Princeton.
Interclass basketball will make its
1911 bow before the campus tonight,
when the first games of the annual
series will be put on in Waterman~
W ith the goal of Michigan's first
Varsity court team next winter to
strive for, it is thought that a faster
brand of ball will be displayed in the
coming set-to than has ever been un-
covered before, the men showing up
well in this winter's league, of course,
having the call when it comes to pick-
ing the big team next year. Also, the
fact that many of the players have
taken part in the fraternity-boarding
house league games and have already
reached mid-season form will tend to
speed up the play.
Dope Scarce on Outcome
The usual scarcity of pre-season
dope is evident. All but one of the
teams that played in the champion-
ship round last winter seem to be
back in the running this year. The
soph lits, campus champions, will
place the same five men that copped
the bunting for them last season on
the floor this season: Cook, Emery,
Wieman, Hanish, and McClintock. The
architects, 1916 runners-up, and the
junior lits, fourth place winners, will
be represented by practically the same
lineups. The foresters, third placers,
have been fatally weakened by the
loss of Homer, who constituted almost
the entire offense of -the team last sea-
Besides these aggregations, the
soph engineers, strengthened by the
addition of Cliff Sparks, who handles
himself quite as niftily on the court
as he does on the gridiron, will un-
doubtedly be a factor in the deciding
of the title. The fresh lit class always'
seems to come through with a whirl-
wind five and there is no reason why
this year should be an exception.
Graduates Present First Team
For the first time in the history of
the league, the graduates will be rep-
resented by a team. This being the
first attempt of the sheep-skin holders
to dabble in class athletics, their ef-
forts will be watched with interest.
The schedule of games for tonight
is as follows:

7 o'clock-Court 1, fresh medics vs.
soph medics; court 2, architects vs.
pharmics; court 3, foresters vs. grad-
uates; court 4, Junior-senior medics
vs. homoeops.
7:40 o'clock-Court 2, fresh laws vs.
senior laws; court 3, fresh engineers
vs. senior engineers; court 4, junior
engineers vs. soph engineers.
8:20 o'clock-Court 2, fresh dents
vs. senior dents; court 3, fresh lits vs.
senior lits; court 4, junior lits vs.
soph lits.
Jimmy Lavan Signs Brown Contract
St. Louis, Feb. 28.--"Everything is
lovely," said Fielder Jones today in
annnouncing the signature of Doe
Lavan to a 1917 contract. Lavan's
signing leaves Cuban Marsans the only
Brownie not under contract, and Jones
announced the outfielder would sign
at Palestine, Tex., Monday.

After several days of inaction due
to warm weather, hockey games start-
ed again yesterday.
Playing one of the fastest games
seen at Weinberg's this season the
fresh lits nosed out the combined sen-
ior-junior lits 2-1, in a real thriller.
The game played yesterday was the
last on the schedule as made out by
the athletic office. Owing to the state
of the weather several games were
necessarily postponed during the past
week. These will be played off be-
ginning today, when the fresh engin-
eers will oppose the losers of yester-
