SUBJECT SEEMS BOUND TO COME'
UP FOR CONSIDERATION AT '
At the meeting of the Regents thisl
morning, the campus is hoping for
definite action upon two topics of ath-l
letic nature. The conference is natur-
ally the paramount athletic issue.,
By an affirmative answer to thel
board in control of athletics' vote of
more than two months back, the Re-
gents will place Michigan in the Big'
Nine and the basketball, baseball, and
track schedules for next year will see
games with Minnesota, Wisconsin, Il-
linois, Chicago, and other schools.E

No, definite knowledge as to just

favor of the return, and what

can be known, since no vote on
th' subject has been conducted.
Societies Favor Move
Out of a poll of eight honorary so-
cieties, every one of them reports that
its memberers were almost unani-
mously in favor of it. But one dis-
senting vote was registered. Five of
the eight took action favoring a unani-
House discussion and street talks in
the past two months have proved that
the majority of students are decidedly
in favor of the return. Little talk has
been heard against the resumption of
athletic competition with the western
schools as against the present system
The Regents are also expected to act
upon this year's interscholastic, dated
for the first Friday and Saturday in
June. That Michigan wished to be
allowed to continue the big prep and
high school meet is conclusively
shown in the sentiment which is in
favor of the resumption of athletic
schedules in general, or at least out-
side competition with M. A. C. and
other schools in the state.
University of Iowa Drops Athletics
Iowa City, Ia., April 26.-The board
in control of athletics at the State
University of Iowa decided that track
athletics will be discontinued at once.
The board acted on the recommenda-
tion of Iowa alumni, Jack Watson, the
track coach, and N. A. Kellogg, man-
ager of athletics.
One exception was made. Those ath-
letes who have been in training this
year and who continue to train will be
sent to the state meet at Des Moines,
May 19, $rovided they show ability.
This dispensation was granted to re-
ward them for their services and to
give them a chance to earn track in-
