Nearly thirty men win wear the maroon in the event, which Coach Friend believes will prove the most important 011 the athletic calendar for the winter season this year. Athletes will be entered ill both the open and the colleeg events, the eligible men in the former. In many of the events three men will be listed in an effort to size up the new blood and unearth, if possible, new probabilities. Coach Friend will begin point­ ing his men for the charity meet as soon as the second Illinois dual meet is off his hands. Indirectly the work in preparation for the big evnt has begun, although it is prob­ able some outdoor runing may be necessary to accustom the long distance men and the sprinters to the dirt track. J t is believed that the maroons will show up ill strong fashion in an event of this kind. Owing to the large number of ineligible men and the lack of strength and team balance at present, it is held that the Midway aggregation probably will not be able to make a satisfac­ ton" showing for the remainder of the indoor season in dual meets, but in an open event it is believed the work of the stars will secure enough points, to land the honors. Coach Friend has determined to brace his track team in every avail­ able position. He has. asked Schommer, his star high jumper, to give up his place on the basket­ ball team and confine his e 'forts to the track team. The excu: � is of­ fered that basketball puts lim out of condition for good trac : work. Schommer is the best mali on the basketball team, and, in fact, is the real point winning strength of the team.

WBBB ON FOOTBALL REFORMS Continued from page one. a molehill of facts, might reach heaven high and possibly shame its authors. On the other hand it may be that such men have already reached their limit, ill which case the convictions of a great mass of people will begin to show their power. A few serious evils have come be­ cause football officials have 110t done their duty; for these and other minor evils the football manage­ ment is often directly responsible. But two great fundamental wrongs, pertaining to football and all other athletics, are chargeable to officers and instructors of the universities and chiefly, no doubt, to those who have lately vociferated their demand for abolition of the football game. These officials and these instructors have done 1110st of all persons to • 'ruin the game" when in a weak and cowardly man uer they have failed to keep ath­ letic candidates attending their classes strictly up to the scholastic standards required by their respect­ ive institutions. They have varied this procedure at times with an­ other as discreditable, viz., that of misusing an athletic candidate by flunking him out of hand without cause. ThIs is stated after taking fully into consideration the fact that many ought to be flunked: they ought to be flunked patiently nevertheless, and according to the forms prescribed by the college law. 'rhe second respect with which these instructors have conspired to "ruin the game" is in the matter of neglect of the game, shifting the burden of failure to build up a far reaching policy with respect to ath­ letics upon a Rules Committee, per­ chance, in charge of petty details. The Thanksgiving day game for instance, ought to have been abol­ ished long ago. Particularly with regard to the selection of officials ought a policy for the guidance of the management to have been dis­ cussed and established and so with many other points, especially those pertaining to eligibility . of candi­ dates for any kind of athletics. But in speaking to members of fac­ ulties, one is met on the one hand with lack of formulated thought by the friends of athletics and on the part of the opposition by a spirit of irritability and mob violence sug­ gested above with regard to flunk­ ing. The former are more respon­ sible for management and are a minority. The latter take a stand very discreditable to men and not in keeping with the line of action to be expected from scholars alive to their opportunities and re­ sponsibilities. They simply seek to evade their duty by resolutions abolishing the subject matter, a course very justly pronounced "silly" by Colonel Hallowell. I would suggest in conclusion that the dictum of Harvard's noted president is here applicable, that those men who have "ruined" the game are scarcely competent to reform it.

ALL-STU ALUIIlIU Exciting Basketb&1l Game Reaulta In Score of 18 to 13 The undergraduate basketball team (women) won in a game with the All Star Alumnae Team, Tues­ day at 1:15 with the score of 18 to 13. A large crowd of graduates and undergraduates came to admire the game ahd incidentally they went away laughing at the "funny" plays. F. H. Keller, former coach,wade the first startling play, when she came to the bat the ball sailed out through one of the windows and a home run was made with ease. A. R. \Vayman acted as umpire when­ ever she was not pitching, then anyone and everyone umpired. Owing to the fact that the All Star team had not played. for sever­ al years they made wild plays which endangered the lives of the audi­ ence on several occasions. One of Miss Ricker's swift balls almost spoiled one girl's enjoyment of the game. Several balls thrown outside of the gymnasium permitted the players to make a home walk. The strenuous All Star Team was so ambitious to make bases that they slid for them and slid with . such force as to bring the baseman down upon them, who al­ most annihilated them. Miss G. Dudley acted as umpire. Five innings only were played on account of lack of time. The line-up was: ALL STAR TEAM. A. R. Wayman, P. H. L. Livermore, C. F. H. Keller, 1 B. E. Bradley, 2 B. 1\1. G.
