RICKEY MAKES BIG
CUT IN BATTERIES
Squad Too Uinieldy For Cage; Sma"4
Chance of Preliminary Out-
NINE PITCHERS ARE STILL LEFT..
Coach Rickey of the baseball nine
weeded his battery men Saturday and
14 pitchers and three catchers were
cut from the squad. The pitching staff
now includes nine men, while six re-
ceivers are still battling for positions.
Rickey made the cut only because he
has given up hope of getting his men
out of doors before the spring trip,
and he considered his squad too un-
wieldy to handle in the cage. He has
asked the unsuccessful men to report
again out of doors, however, when he
can give them more attention.
"I have a problem on my hands,"
said Rickey last evening. "I am oblig-
ed to take eight new men on the south-
ern trip, and I have practically given
up hope of getting the squad out of
doors before the jaunt. This is some-
thing that has never happened to a
Michigan team before, so you will see
how necessary it is that I get the
squad down where I can handle it iv
The pitchers who are still retained
on the staff are Wiggins, Otis, Ward,
Corbin, Wheat, Baribeau, Baker, Ken-
yon and Smith. The remaining catch-
ers are Gould, Rogers, Hippler, Black--
more, Gump, and Webber.

IS SITUATION IN ATHLETICS SAT-
(Continued from page 1.)
was announced from Ithaca that Mich-
igan has been dropped from Cornell's
baseball schedule. The Michigan Dai-
ly hastened to explain that this was
merely an awkward and misleading
way of saying that the two colleges
had been unable to find mutually sat-
isfactory dates? According to recent
dsipatches Vanderbilt has been given
a football game with Harvard, and so
will be unable to play Michigan. Mich-.
igan retaliated bravely and promptly,
announcing that henceforth Vanderbilt
will be ignored in the arrangement of
Michigan's schedules. Still more re-
cently Ohio State presented to the Con-
ference a request for admisiontto mem-
bership. The action so far taken 'by
the Conference indicates ' that Ohio
State will be admitted.
'These facts are significant. For sev-
eral seasons Cornell has furnished the
games which saved Michigan's base-
ball schedules from being complete
failures; Michigan and Vanderbilt
have maintained friendly relations
since 1905; and Ohio State has come
to be regarded as a fixture on Michi-
gan'. s schedules in all branches of
sport. The fact that Michigan has lost
her contests with these institutions-
in reality the most desirable of Mich-
igans present'opponents-means not
only Cornell, Vanderbilt and Ohio State
do not consider Michi;an-so long as
she retains the anomalous position now
hers-as desirable an opponent as they
do Harvard, and (in the case of Ohio
State) the Conference colleges, but also
that Mi higan is to be forced by a
dearth of respectable opponents to a
retention on her schedules of Syracuse,
and a realliance with Notre Dame and
Adherence to Old Policy Ruinous.
"The situation that confronts Mich-
igan is one of fact not of sentiment.
Altruistic desires to raise college ath-
letics to a higher plane aside, Michi-
gan cannot afford longer to play a
losing game; and to adhere, for the
sake of'saving the face of someone who
blundered years ago, to a policy ruin-
ous in its nature. There is such a thing
as enlightened selfishness, and that
selfishness demands that Michigan
awake to a true realization of the sit-
Incentive to Tryout is Lost.
"Some time Michigan alumni and un-
dergraduates will refuse to be deceiv-
ed by statements by the athletic au-
thorities that 'Michigan is well pleased
with the present situation;' by mud-
slinging at the Conference to obscure
the real issues; and by newspaper ex-
planations of reports that Michigan has
been dropped from -'s schedule. Re-
sults, not excuses, determine ultimate-
ly whether a given policy is a success
or a failure. Michigan's present policy
has been tried for more than five years.
In that time baseball has become a
tradition, solely because games with
Alma, Oberlin, Western Reserve and
De Pauw fall far short of replacing the
championship games withIllinois, Chi-
cago and Wisconsin; in the same pe-
riod the only football seasons to which
Michigan can point with any pride are
1909 and 1910and in each of those
years it was the Michigan-Minnesota
game, not' the Michigan Pennsylvania
game which was responsible for the
season's success. It is barely conceiv-
able that opinions may differ in respect
,> the effect our transfer to the Eastern
Intercollegiate has had on track ath-
letics. Certainly if college athletics
are to fulfiill their ultimate function-
that of interesting in an active way a
large percentage of the undergraduate
body-the change has been a dismal
failure. Competition is somewhat
keener in the Eastern Intercollegiate
than in the Conference meet; and, de-
spite our repeated protests that we are
not a Western, but a "Middle Eastern"
university, the distance from Ann Ar-
bor to Chicago is appreciably less than
Ann Arbor to Cambridge, or even Ann
Arbor to Philadelphia. The result is
obvious. - Only a few can hope to
'place',in the Eastern Intercollegiate
and the expense is too great to justify
taking men who have not at least an
outside chance to finish 'within the
money." So the mediocre athletes are
not given a place on the team and it is
a matter of common knowledge that
men-or boys,-will not submit to the
slavish grind of a track season without
some incentive. That incentive is not
furnished by a prior knowledge that
they cannot hope to make th.e team and
thus have a chance to try to win points
