TO BE HELD BY GIRLS' BA8KET
Event Will Occur Friday, March '15th
In the Armory Teams Will Rep-
resent the Four Classes.
. The girls basket-ball tournament
will be held Friday afternoon, March
15th, at 2 o'clock In the Gymnasium.
A team Is entered by each class, and
the rivalry is said to be strong. Three
games are to bo played, one between
the Freshman and Sophomores, one
betweeu the Juniors and Seniors, and
the third and deciding game between
the respective winners.
The games this year promise to bo
even more exciting and close than
usual. None of the three upper class
teams have ever won the pennant be
fore, the. class of 1905 winning it In
1901, 1902 and 1904 and the class of
1906 winning It In 1903, 1905 and 190G.
These teams were rather above the
average and the contest as a result
was rather onesided. However, this
year all the teams aro about equally
, matched and the games consequently
will be closely fought.
' The tournament Is the means by
which the first team Is chosen later,
the players showing up the best being
placed "upon the Bquad.
The big "doings,"" however, takes
place before the tournament proper
begins. It consists of a big parade
and grand spectacle. The parade ,Js
made up of the different teams, with
their respective mascots and support
ers. The gl'rls are dressed In the most
fantastic costumes and when the pa
rade Is started, headed by a band, It Is
certainly a never-to-be-forgotten sight.

Michigan May Pass up Conference.
That Michigan's readmlsslon. into
the eastern Intercollegiate athletic
ranks may result In the wolverines
staying away from tho moot this
spring was the opinion expressed
yesterday at tho University of
Chicago. Maroon rooters declared
that Michigan had simply found a sub
stltute for the western event in which
she can star through tho efforts of
her Ineligible men.
The eastern Intercollegiate meet
will take place just a we ok boforo the
conference meet at Marshall -field.
Michigan, it is said, will take a full
team east, including nil tho -athletes
who were ruled out of "big nine"
competition 4y tho "three-year" rule.
Tho wolverines, it is believed, will
scarcely bo in shape to compote in
two championship meets a week apart.
