Coach McAllister and Captain Sirli-
van are praying for a contiuaion of thit
thaw, so that the baseball team may get
anr early start upon outdoor work. Prac-
tice in the cage is split p between bat-
tery work with light batting and indoor
baseball
Since the last call thesquad has beer
considerably augmented by the appear-
ance of newe men. Euizenroth, who war
formerly substitute catcher on the Illi-
tos varity nine, is almost certain tc
make good this year, and with Emrer-
man will make a strong pair for tbe
receiving box, Walsh, senior law, it
showing good form, and with Taft abe
to take up the mas and protector an
tie, there is not likely to be a deart
of catchers.
HANDBALL, FINAIS TODAY.
As was expected, the semi-final roun
of the handball tournament was full o:
excitement and interesting to watch. Ar
Dr. May, asistant physical director
said, "This tournament has furnisher
some of the fastest games I have ever

seen, The finals will be _remnarkably
close, no doubt, and its a toss-op as to
who will, be the lucky man."
TShe semi-finals resulted in victories
