VARSITY CATCHER CALLED
HOME BY FATHER'S DEATH
Rippler, Mainstay Behind Bat, Will Be
Out of Game Saturday; Baer
Hippler, the catcher who has been
doing the major portion of the back-
stop work for the Wolverine diamond
men during the season thus far, was
called to his home in Geneseo, Ill., yes-
terday morning by the death of his
father. Hippler, senior law, received
the telegram early yesterday morning
and left immediately.
If his injured digit is in shape by
Saturday, Baer will do the backstop
work for Michigan on Saturday against
Western Reserve. If the veteran, who
has not yet been able to participate in
a single game thus far, is not able to
get into the fray, the task of handling
Baribeau's shoots will probably fall
on Mattson, the catcher who took the
southern trip. There is also a possi-
bility that Gee, a veteran class team
man who has been working out under
Lundgren, will get a chance with the

chapter, has copies for free distribu-
The practice yesterday was given up
entirely to looking over the infielders
and outfielders, and getting a line up-
on their batting eyes. The coach will
not attempt to eliminate the excess of
battery material until he has the re-
mainder of the berths settled.
On the field the freshmen looked
much better than upon previous occas-
ions, and the final selections are sure
to include some real baseballers for
Lavans to train for next year's Varsi-
ty. The youngsters have had little
chance to show their ability with the
stick, but in the little swatting they
have engaged in, they have shown
skill in locating the sphere.
Dean Effinger to Explain Cercle Play
Dean J. R. Effinger, of the literary
