call for candidates, and Prof. H. A.

Griffith Hayes, '11, former Varsity
baseball star, and Homer Heath, man-

Grand Rapids yesterday , afternoon,
where they will fire the first gun in the
general campaign for Union life mem-
bers.
Mr. Hayes was formerly in business
in Detroit, but he has given up his po-
sition in order to take charge of the
state canvass.
The work of organization will be
taken up in subdivided territori'es.
When one section is thoroughly organ-
ized, the actual campaign will start.
In this way the whole state will be
worked over.
Mr. Heath, when interviewed yester-
day, expressed himself as extremely
well satisfied with the progress made
by the local committee. "We set the
mark at 2,000," he said, "but we never
expected to go much over one-half
of that. The committee has done very
well indeed."

SPRING, ROBIN
AND NINE OUT
ON FERRY LOT
Coach Lundgren Discovers First Sign
of Balmy Weather on Athletic
Field, and Orders
Outdoor Work
BASEBALL TEAM HAS NEVER
BEEN OUT SO EARLY BEFORE
Tutor Will Now Have Opportunity to
Get Line on His Prospective
Fly Chasers
Spring has come!
Coach Lundgren took his camera
down to Ferry field yesterday after-
noon to get some pictures of the work
on the stadium. Entering Ferry field
he spied the first robin of the season,
snapped that instead, and hurried back
to the gym to make arrangements for
outdoor baseball practice.
Today is the earliest date for the
migration to the field within the mem-
ory of the oldest State street fan.
Within the last three years outdoor
practice previous to the southern
jaunt has been confined to a few inter-
mittent days of skiing in the mud, but
with almost three weeks left before
the opening contest with Kentucky on
April 4, Lundgren expects to have his
mn in excellent shape for the Dixie
trip.
Uniforms, balls, bats and bases will
all be taken to the club house this
morning, and barring an unexpected
change in the weather, the gym will
not see the diamond artistts again this
year.
With the change of base, Lundgren
has altered the hours for practice,
those in force atthe gym being early
on account, of the gym classes and
track practice in the late afternoon.
From now on the candidates wi re-1
port at 2:30 o'clock.
Today's practice will be confined to a
light workout, the outfielders comingt
in for a good share of the coach's at-..
tentions. Lundgren has had no op-t
portutnity to size up the wings or eyesI
of his gardeners, and has kept a largel
squad of men on his list, not feeling
justified in cutting down the numner
with nothing but batting strength on
which to base his judgment.+
SUDDEN CHANGE IS MADE IN 1
SCHEDULE FOR BASKETBALL
In order to avoid giving any teams
an unfair advantage in the interclass
basketball series the schedule was
changed so that all first round games
in the finals would be played tonight.
Had the schedule been played off as
originally planned the teams playing
last night would have had the benefit
of one night more of rest than the
teams playing today. Tonight's sched-
ule follows: at 7:10 o'clock, senior lits
vs. soph lits and junior laws vs. fresh
pharmics;tat 8:00 o'clock, senior engi-
neers vs. fresh laws and junior lits vs.
fresh lits.
"Student Life" Publication Suspended

other duties has compelled Sydney M.

pend work on the periodical.

SQUADI

COACH CARL LUNDGREN
Former Chicago Cub Hurler who will
start new custom in coaching Varsi-
ty baseball team which goes out-
doors today.
NEW COACH WILL
ORGANIZE SCRUBS
Carl Lundgren to Inaugurate System
of Regular Reserve Team
of Baseball Men
SECOND STRINGERS TO GET "R"
With the beginning of outdoor prac-
tice today, Coach Lundgren applies the
acid test by which Michigan's diamond
athletes will be selected. At present
38 candidates are on the Varsity list,
and from this number the Wolverine
battle front will be chosen.
Never before have candidates for the
Michigan team had so good a chance
to make the nine as under Coach Lund-
gren, for as a result of the decision of
the board of directors to award base-
ball "R's," a much larger squad will
be carried.
The board last year provided for the
awarding of a maximum of ten reserve
letters to the men who in the opinion
of the coach gave thebaseball team
the most service, exclusive of the
baseball "M" men.
The new provision exactly fits in
with Coach Carl Lundgren's training
ideas. The Ex-Cub hurler plans to
have a regular first andrsecond team,
similar to the two football teams, and
the men will be shifted from the re-
serve to the Varsity squad as their
showing warrants.
Lundgren is a believer in regular
games as the best training possible,
and expects to attain better results
from regularly organized squads than
he could from two teams made up from
a single squad.
REGISTRATION BY STUDENT
PASTORS TO BE MADE TODAY'
Registrations for the Michigan Life-
Work Conference, to be held in De-
troit on Friday,Saturday, and Sunday,

Saturday, and by former Judge Alexis
C. Angell, there will be addresses by

president of the Chicago Theological
Seminary.
