FAST PRACTICE ON.
Baseball Team Working Hard for Sat
urday's Game-Illinois Team is
Strong-Season Tickets on
Sale at Myer's News
With the Illinois game ony thret
days away, the baseball team put in
some fast practice yesterday after
noon in spite of the Cailly weather
Contrary to expectations, Coaches Ut
ley and Johnson made no change i
the make-up of the infield and it
work was especially snappy. Severa
times the brilliant playing callet
forth the applause of the few specta
tors who sat shivering through th
practice. Boyle, (# third, showed u0
especially well. Capt. Itedden 50n
Campbell are working together henel;
around the second bag, while nothil
could get past DePree on first.
The opening game with Illinois o0
Saturday promises to be a close con
test with excitement all the wa
through. For the last two years Illi
nois has been the undisputed cham
pion of the West so far as basebal
is concerned. Last year Michigan'
team was the only one that was abl
to inflict a single defeat upon th
men from Champaign, and this year'
squad is said to be one of the boa
ever turned out at that institution
They have a great advantage in th
matter of practice, as out door wor
has been in order ever since Feb. 15
and they have had the benefit of se
eral games with professional teams
In Huff, Illinois has the best colleg
baseball coach in the country.
However, Michigan's team has mor
than once been the cause of the down
fall of the Illini who would rathe
meet any team in the West than th
wearers of the yellow and blue.
Chicago's 10 to a victory ove Wi
consin greatly pleased the 'Varsit
ball tossers and they are looking fo
ward to an opportunity to reveng
themselves for the recent defeat.

CANOEING ON IN EARNEST.
All that is now needed to make
Ann Arbor realize for good that
spring is here in more ways than one
is the advent of a few warm days.
The Huron would then be the most
popular place in this part of the coun-
try, judging from the early manifes-
tations of the canoeing spirit. Once
more the river is back in its bed and
is rapidly assuming its normal level
which will make canoeing less danger-
The little boat house near the dam
has been a busy place since the open-
ing of college. A few of the more ad-
venturous spirits frequented the place
when the ice had hardly cleared from
the river. But now even the less de-
sirous for mishaps are to be found on
the little stream whiling away a few
hours with the dip of the paddle.. In
:ther words, canoeing has begun in
earnest and each day the lovers of the
water pass their recreation periods
In that most enjoyable of pastimes.
The cold weather has interfered
considerably with the canoeing, as
few young ladies, in particular, really
enjoy setting in the bottom of a canoe
with a cold, sharp wind embracing
them. A few touches of "real weath-
er" will change all and the Huron will
be the favorite retreat of many. The
service this year will probably be
much better than that rendered last
year. Several new canoes have been
added and the old ones repaired and
put in excellent condition.
When the weather "warms" excur-
sion parties to Whitmore Lake will
be in order. Even now plans are on
foot for a few pleasant parties at this
nearby resort. The boats and espec-
ially the few sailers will be in readi-
ness for the students.
LECTURED TO MEDICS.
The Right Reverend Father O'Brien
of Kalamazoo spoke before the medi-
cal students last evening on "The Re-
lation of the Catholic Church to the
Medical Profession." He brought out
the customs of - the Church in re-
gard to death and birth in a way in-
teresting to medical students.
gymnasium by the regents in June.
He began his work in Ann Arbor in
September, and has been here ever
.His remarkable success is well
known. Under his guidance the track
team has won every western intercol-
legiate championship, save one, since
he became trainer. His service as
trainer for the football team in as-
sisting Coach Yost can hardly be
overestimated. His work as director
of the gymnasium has also brought
him great credit.
Just after the success of the track
men at Philadelphia last Saturday,
all should extend their deepest grat-
itude and appreciation to Keene Fitz-
patrick for his devoted and sincere
work. A quiet, unostentatious, per-
fect gentleman, honored by every-
body who knows him, and admired by
those who have only heard of him-
that is Trainer Fitzpatrick.
EAST PRAISES THE WEST.
The Daily is in receipt of a letter
from Coach Yost, who attended the
Philadelphia meet. The following
clipping from the Philadelphia Inquir-
er was inclosed:
"The West came East and the East
was beaten. That is the result of the
Westerners' invasion of the great re-
lay carnival and special field and
track events held Saturday on Frank-
lin Field. The West was represented
by Michigan and Chicago. It was the
Michigan men that made the East
ook like selling platers. A wmnder-
ful place, athletically speaking, Mich-
igan University is. They lead off by
having the champion football team of
the West, and if it was given a
chance, it is easy betting that it
would prove itself the champion of
the country. That team is coached by
Mr. Yost, who, because of his hust-
ling abilities, is called "Hurry Up"
