According to Keene Fitipatrick, athletic trainer of Michigan university, professionalism is rampant at that Beat of learning, where It Is said to be worth $500 a year to be an ath lete This surprising statement was included In a recent appeal to the students to come out and train foi track and field events, but pei haps it was meant differently from the way the public viewed it. Says Fitzpatrick "There is not a year when we do not have eight or ten more requests for teachers who can give in struction of this kind than we can supply. This is something that the majority of students who are fitting themselves for feachers seem to have overlooked, and we get many letters from for mer students who are engaged in teaching ask ing us for information as to how to give this sort of instruction. Among other things, a teacher can often command $400 to $500 more a year in salary." A western report bears out this statement by saying that it is worth $1,000 a year to get on the Michigan footbail eleven, and if a man makes the all-western team It is said to be north $1,500 a year, and for the very short season of three months It is not yet known in what light the Michigan alumni will le ceive Fitzpatrick's statement, but it is the first time that Michigan's athletic leputation has been exploited as financially valuable to the gen eral body of Michigan students Fitzpatrick makes a good offer to the men who will come out and embrace the new "study Tho they neyer may develop ability to get on thjs big teams, he says he -will teach them all the tricks by which they can show other men how to succeed on the cinder path or gridiron.

There have been whispers- of automo bile processions and brass bands but nothing defi nite has been decided upon. Being away with the team, the manager has not bad any time to arrange for a spontaneous outburst of gladnesl on the part of the fans. It is presumed that Rev. G. ti. Morrill, chap lain of Nicollet park, will approach the plate with the radiant sunshine slipping off his pol lehed dome with, the ease of a hired girl passing down street on a banana peel. Ho will make a few remarks about how baseball resembles the "great game of Jife" and quote that pretty little thing about the "golden sunset"Colonel Lee will whoop twice in rapid succession and the sea son will be on. Therf will be many old and some new faces on the team. The babylike countenance of "Kid" Fox, captain of the squad, will shine with th glad homelight around second base, and Tom Gleason's favorite. "Little Andee I-l-ler," will be at short. "Buck" Freeman, the lad from, the coast, whose injured leg kept him In misery the latter part of last season, is as right as can be, and Is cutting great didoes around first base. "Battleship" Greminger, probably the heaviest hitter in the league, will be back at third, his injured wrist having about healed np. There will be a complete change in the batteries and all the dope has it that things will be better. In the outfield Sullivan and Maloney will bo missed, but Clouter Coulter is still there. The fat -waddle o Leslie, the utility man of last year, will be absent. The new men are stick ing wrti and fielding fast If they will only play fast enough to beat out St. Paul on holi days and five out of six weekdays they will be forgiven for all past offense!. It is very much up to them. Just now about every tinhorn and false-alarm prizefighter who every went to sleep after a biff from a five-ounce projectile is "butting into" the newspaper business and telling, in syndicate articles iust how bd they werTor how SSSly good they thought they were. The opinions of these roundheads on any subject are about as valuable as a jojntkeeper's estimation of a re form mayor.
