TRACK TEAMS WAIT
FOR OPENING GUN

Everything Ready for Big Western
Carnival to Be Held
Tonight
RECORDS EXPECTED TO FALL
AGAINST ATTACKS OF STARS
Presence of Michigan for First Time
Since 1906 Affords Extra
Interest
Champaign, Ill., March 2-(Special.)
-Everything is set for the opening of
the western intercollegiates tomorrow
night in the mammoth new armory.
All day today teams have piled into
town from all directions. Tonight
nearly all are now quartered in hotels
marking time.
Interest in the meet is unusual this
year because of the presence of Michi-
gan for the first time entered in a
conference track engagement since
1906. The Wolverines arrived this
noon from Chicago, and took up quar-
ters at the Beardsley. Tonight they
are the guests of an enthusiastic
crowd of Michigan alumni from all
over the state.
Dope on Outcome Scarce
Dope as to the probable outcome of
the meet is scarce. Hazardous
chances as to the strength of indiv-
idual favorites are heard, but no defi-
nite pickings are being made.
The number of schools entered, and
the stars which will be seen at the
meet, preclude new conference indoor
records, although this may not be the
case owing to the earlyness of the
season.
Michigan Center or Interest
Michigan is naturally the center of
interest, and talk about he chances of
the Wolverines against their old com-
petitors holds first rank. O'Brien is
expected to get a big place in the 75-
yard dash, being an equal favorite
with Captain Smith of Wisconsin. Hoyt
of Grinnell is holding third place in
the paper speculations
Arlie Mucks, the giant Badger
weight man, is a problem in the shot,
with the dope favoring him above
Cross, another Wolverine. Pat Smith,
brother of Carmen Smith, is expected
to land a place in this event.
Simmons is the only other Michi-
gander who is given a chance to land
a first. Fighting it out with the non-
conference men in the high jump are
Webster of Illinois, Fisher of Chicago,
and James of Northwestern.
Captain Ames is expected to land
both hurdles, although Packer of
Ames may upset the dope by break-
ing the tape in one or both.
Relays Another Problem
Little dope as to the Wolverine
chances in the relays is known. The
two dual meets which they have held
this season have found them to pos-
sess material which may be sufficient-
ly fast to place high. If the Wolver-
ines can improve by a scant margin
in the mile relay, they stand an ex-
cellent chance of taking the event
from the conference.. Captain Car-
roll's well known ability in the half
mib has afforded food for thought as
to the Wolverines copping a place
here also.
Preparations have been completed
to handle one of the largest crowds
which ever attended indoor games in
the middle west.
Badgers Enter But Two Men in Meet
But two men from the University
of Wisconsin, Capt. Smith and Burke,
left yesterday afternoon to compete in
the Illinois relay carnival. Smith will
enter in the broad jump, dashes and
hurdles, while his confrere will enter
the all-round championship match.

GOVERNOR CANCELS HERALDED
DILLON-LES DARCY BATTLE
Albany, March 2. - (Special). -
Branding Les Darcy, Austrian pugilist,
as a slacker, Governor Whitman today
directed the state athletic commission
to prohibit him from entering the ring
at Madison Square garden in New
York City for a bout with Jack Dil-
lon.
Assistant Attorney General Ober-
meyer, of New York, announced yes-
terday that Hugh Browne's contract,
calling for a ten-round bout between
Dillon and Les Darcy as a "copper-
riveted" legal document had lulled all
opposition to the affair.

Season Record
Rolls 266 in Last Night's Oberlin
Match; Averages 213 in
Three Games
In spite of some low individual
scores the Michigan bowling team
rolled up a team total of 2,579 in a
match with Oberlin. This is the fourth
hIn a series of five in the western di-
vision of the Intercollegiate Bowling
league. The last tussle will take place
on March 10 when the Wolverines will
engage the pin-spillers from the Uni-
versity of Illinois.
Carlson was high man for the Mich-
iganders setting up a mark of 266 for
his last game. This score gives him
an average of 213 and a total of 638
for the three games. Captain Schoe-
pfle came second with a total of 521.

up for this year's wrestling tourna-
nient, entry to which closes at noon
today. No more contestants will be
considered after this time. The elim-

posted on the bulletin board in the
wrestling room and should be con-
sulted by everyone having any inten-
tions of entering.
Those in charge are endeavoring to
so arrange the schedule of bouts as
to arouse a wide interest in this sport.

TEN GAMES CARDED IN
ASKETBALL TONIGHT
OPENING FRAYS OFFER SCANT
DOPE ON COMPARATIVE
STRENGTH
Interclass basketball had an off per-
iod declared last night and as a result
Waterman gym looked deserted. Hos-
tilities will be resumed tonight when
20 teams will take the floor.
The first night of festivities brought
to light little new in the line of pre-
season dope. The defeat of the for-
esters, third placers in last year's con-
test, at the hands of the graduates,
newcomers to this brand of competi-
tion, practically puts the woodmen out
of the running. The soph lits, cam-
pus title leaders could get nothing
better than an event count in their
tussle with the juniors of the same de-
partment and therefore cannot be
placed yet. Victories obtained by the
senior laws, fresh lits, and soph eng-
ineers make them slight favorites.
Twenty teams are scheduled to com-
pete in ten games tonight, which will
complete the second set in the first
round of the tournament. Another
set will be played on Monday night,
finishing the first round.
The schedule for tonight's games is
as follows:
7 o'clock- Court 1, fresh lits vs.
junior lits; court 2, soph lits vs. senior
lits; court 3, fresh engineers vs. junior
engineers; court 4, soph engineers vs.
senior engineers.
7:40 o'clock-Court 1, soph engin-
eers vs. homoeops; court 2, junior-
senior medics vs. fresh medics; court
3, junior laws vs. senior laws; court 4,
junior dents vs. senior dents.
8:20 o'clock-Court 3, architects vs.
grads; court 4, foresters vs. pharmics.

INDOOR BASEBALL DROPPED
UNTIL MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK
With the coming of interclass bask-
etball, indoor baseball has been shoved
out of the limelight. The senior eng-
ineers are at present the only team
who have put in their appearance for
practice, and the schedule, which1
should have been started yesterday,
has been postponed until next week
by Intramural Director Rowe.
Never has so little interest been tak-
en in in the indoor brother of this
country's national sport;Oand it is a
possibility that the game will be drop-
ped from the University's list of sports,
unless more enthusiasm is shown
within the near future. If indications
are reliable, the schedule will be ar-
ranged to start about next Wednesday,
but more teams will have to start
practice to make this possible.
