Long John Edmiunds to Act as Sponsor
in Absence of Wolverine
Steve Will Take Remaining Athletes
In Hand in Prepaiation for
Cornell - Fray
Steve Farrell will be unable to
makc the trip to St. Louis with the
track team which leaves this after-
t oon. The coach's wife iststill sick
at their home on Packard street. Long
John Edmunds will take charge of the
team in the absence of the Wolverine
Minus their coach, the teanm, con-
sisting of seven men, will leave- this
afternoon at 1:50 o'clock for the
Mound City. Those to go are O'Brien,
Simmons, Carroll, Scofield, Hardell,
Huntington, and Fontanna.
Hard Fight Expected
The University of Missouri quartet
which will be met in the special mile
relay by the Wolverines is composed
of four seniors who have run together
for the greater part of three years.
It is one of the strongest quartets in
the Middlewest aside from the Chi-
cago team, which bested the Wolver-
ines at Champaign.
In a race last Friday nigh in Kansas
City the Missourians turned in a mark
of 3:32 3-5 which shows that the Mich-
igan quartet willshave their hands full
from the start.
Just what competition the other
Michigan men will meet during their
stay in the Mound City is unknown ex-
cept in the case of Captain Carroll.'
Eddie is to run against the well known.
Joie Ray and Tenney of Chicago, and
probably three or four others of ex-
ceptional ability.
What Simmons.will meet in the high
jump is a mystery, but it is assured
that Vic will have to climb to about
the same height the lanky one reached
last week to keep in the running for
a high place in the summaries. O'Brien
is also expected to have the hottest1

sort of competition, as many of the
sprinters in the Middlewest are flyers
of no mean ability.
Team to Practice
The remainder of the team will
workout in the gymnasium the rest
of the week as usual. Farrell himself
will be present every day in the en-
deavor to get his men keyed up to
their best form for the Cornell en-
counter next Saturday night.
Steve will remain in charge of the
freshmen in their fight against the De-
troit Y. M. C. A. here the same night
the Varsity men are competing in St.
Steve stated yesterday that all the
men making the trip are in good con-
dition for this time of year, and
should perform well in the sort of
competition they are expected to face.
Mystery shrouds the quality of the
Detroit "Y" track team which stacks
up against Coach Steve Farrell's team
tomorrow night in Waterman gymnas-
ium, but it is certain that it will have
to show more class than any of the
aggregations which have represented
the association in recent years to de-
feat the youngsters.
McDonald, the association miler, is
reputed to have reeled off the distance
in 4 minutes and 30 seconds.
Clare Jacobs is reported to have
cleared 12 feet when he was pole-
vaulting for the University of Chicago.
However this may be, he won the event
in last winter's meet with a leap of
10 feet 6 inches. The visitors boast
a pair of better-than-ordinary hurd-
lers in Babbitt and Williams. The
former copped off both the low and
high sticks against Bill Fox's crew,
while the latter is a former Eastern
high track captain who has shown up
well at the interscholastics. Wyatt is
another former Easterner who is a
clever performer in the sprints.
Moose Curtis, the east stater's shot
putter, won the 1916 meet with a toss
of 44 feet 4 1-2 inches. Rube Secord,
who runs the mile for the metropolitan
gang, has gleaned considerable notor-
iety around the state as a cross-coun-
try runner.
Following are the entries:
50-yard dash-Detroit, Taylor, Med-
daugh, Benson, Hale, Nitz, Williams,
and Wyatt; freshmen, Cagney, Wheel-
er, Johnson, Bergazine, West, and
60-yard low hurdles-Detroit, Bab-
bitt, Williams, and Wyatt; freshmen,
Johnson, Wilson, Tuxbury, and
60-yard high hurdles-Detroit, Bab-
bitt, Williams, and Wyatt; freshmen,
Johnson, Later, and Messner.
440-yard dash - Detroit, Taylor,
Fleming, Wolf, Walbridge, Parke,
Spaulding, and Bennett; freshmen,
Hunt, Forbes, Butler, Lombard, and
880-yard run-Detroit, Russell, Wal-
bridge Fleming, Spaulding, and Mc-
Donald; freshmen, Schuster, Stoll,
Cramer, Larson, and Boyd.
Mile run-Detroit, McDonald, Dun-
kie, and Seecord; freshmen, Batty,

man, Later, Kruger, Barringer, and
Shot put-Detroit, Curtis, Babbitt,

Rosey Rowe to Act as Announcer
While Jazz Band Will En-
Two hadliners have been added to
the entertainment which will be part
of the program of the Boxing club
in its first exhibition Thursday night
in the Armory. Rosey Rowe will act
as announcer and Sandy Wilson's Jazz
band, fresh from band bounce fame,
will alleviate the padded knockout
drops by pouring forth harmony.
The boys of the club are in stern
training, and interest is now being
shown in the sport. Every evening
the floor of the boxing room is kept
hot, with four pairs of sparrers in op-
eration all of the time.
Tickets for the exhibition are sell-
ing fast, with indications that more
will have to be printed to accommo-
date all the fans that will want to see
the first public endeavor of the club.
All entrance will be by tickets sold in
advance, as none will be sold at the
door. George Moe's athletic store has
tickets on sale.

Record Crowd Is Looked for at
Cornell Indoor Track encounter

fled by the

By all odds the largest crowd which
ever witnessed an indoor track meet
in Waterman gym is expected to see
Cornell pitted against Michigan next
The bare fact that Cornell has won
the intercollegiates for the past two
years would suffice to draw out a rec-
ord crowd. Several of the individual
events have caused the interest to1
jump to such an extent, however, that
the association has already had ap-
plication for many of the 2,500 seats
which are expected to be taken long
before the reserved seat distribution
closes Monday.
Michigan is destined to be the cen-
ter of interest during the meet. The
two greatest mile runners in last
year's intercollegiates will be pitted
against each other for probably the
next to the last time while they are
in college. Windnagle won the event
at Boston in 4:15, with Eddie Carroll
right behind him, pulling a mark of


ing contest between Vic Simmons and
Alma Richards, and the shot put be-
tween the same Richards and Cec
Cross shouldeseessome excellentwork.
The Athletic association is reserv-
ing seats in exchange for coupon 14
of the athletic book. This should be
mailed at once, as many of the seats
were filled by the mails of yesterday.
The interclass relay runners took a
rest yesterday so as to be able to
put forth their best effort this after-
noon when the eight teams which sur-
vived through the preliminaries will
take their places in the semi-finals.
Three teams ran yesterday, junior
engineers, fresh laws, and the fresh
lits, but the others were unable to get
together. These will run this after-
noon and they .are the senior lits, the
senior engineers, medics, dents, phar-

fresh lits have made the best time,
the senior lits, and the fresh engineers
are running well and the race for the
championship which will be run later
in the season, will be a close one.
Conjecture Rife
on ,Southern 1Trip


Opponents Loom Up as Possi-
bilities for Coming

As the time for the team to invade
the south on its annual tour ap-
proaches, speculation as to just what
southern institutions will be on the
schedule becomes rife. The schedule
is apparently waiting the return of;
Director Bartelme and a meeting of
the executive committee in order that
the games arranged may be ratified.
According to reports published from
the other end, .the University of the
South (Sewanee), has two games
scheduled with Michigan. The report
comes with a semblance of authority,
but no games have been confirmed or
announced from this end. No games
can be announced until officially rati-

executive committee.
Last year the schedule began with
Kentucky State, but inclement weath-
er prevented the game. No rumors or
reports from either Lexington or Ann
Arbor have announced a game for this
season. Washington and Lee and the
University of Virginia generally put
out strongteams and are usually to be
found on a Michigan schedule. It is
more than likely that either one or
both of the Georgia institutions, Uni-
versity of Georgia or Georgia Institute
of Technology will be on the schedule.
Both of these are well known in base-
ball circles for their teams.
The team went to'Nashville last year
and the probabilities are that the trip
will be duplicated again this season.
Tennessee and Vanderbilt are bothi
formidable opponents on the diamond
and a game with either may be ex-
pected, although Vanderbilt probably
will figure if only one appears on the
chart, in view of past competition with
Michigan teams in both baseball and
The schedule will probably be out
the latter part of the week, or the
'rst of next.

gan Daily Ads. Read them.
