Syracuse Men Expect to Avenge Them-
selves Saturday for Defeat Handed
Them Indoors
When Syracuse comes to Ann Arbor
on Saturday for the big outdoor track
meet of the Wolverine season, a battle
royal is assured, for the Orangemen
will be fighting to avenge themselves
for the defeat administered by the Wol-
verines in the indoor clash, while the
Michigan athletes will be fighting to
maintain and increase the 3-point mar-
gin which won the victory in the east.
The score of 40 to 37 which gave
Farrell's men the victory at Syracuse
last winter, is entirely too close. The
coach is confidently expecting a vic-
tory, and on his return from South
Bend last night, he announced that
the hardest kind of practice would
govern for the Wolvernes during the
present week.
The feature of the Saturday clash
will be the attempt of Captain Smith,
of the Michigan team, to redeem him-
self for losing the dashes at Syracuse
during the winter meet. The Wolver-
ine speeder failed to get first in both
the short and the 300-yard event, al-
though he more than made up for these
slips by winning the relay race and
incidentally the meet, by his feat of
besting Captain Donahue at the 300-
yard distance in the last lap of the
relay. In the Ferry field meet, Cap-
tain Smith iwill beworking overhis
favorite distance, the 220-yard dash,
aind he should be able to soundly
trounce the orange runners. His feat
of taking second to Drew at the Penn
Relay Games and the same place in a
10-second dash on Ferry. field last
Saturday, is taken by the rooters as
an indication that he will also find a
little satisfactory revenge in the short-
er sprint.
The clash between "Bo" Wilson of
Michigan and Curtis of Syracuse in the
pole vault will also be more than inter-
esting. Although Wilson has been con-
sistently unable to produce his best
work in competition, he has been
pointing himself for this encounter
with Curtis, and expects to be able to
produce a victory. In the indoor meet
Curtis and Wilson tied for first. They
were both mixed up in the fourteen-
cornered tie for second at the Penn
Relay Games. The pole vault on Sat-
urday will really be a match between
these two men, and it is a certainty
that it will receive more than the or-
dinary amount of attention.
Farrell took a record squai of in-
vaders to South Bend for yesterday's
meet, and the training which the Wol-
verines received in that clash will
stand them in good stead on the co-
ing Saturday. The coach will enter
every man in his squad against the
Orangemen, for it is certain that each
stray point must be annexed in order
to assure the victory for Michigan.

Reports coming from Detroit to the
effect that Ferguson, Varsity pitcher,
has promised to sign with the Tigers
as soon as he has graduated in June,
were further substantiated yesterday
when the moundsman failed to deny
the newspaper stories. It is known
that a Tiger scout was a spectator at
the Michigan Syracuse game on Thurs-
day, having come out from Detroit for
the express purpose of watching the
lanky twirler at work.
The rules governing competition of
college baseball players prohibits their
being under contract to play with any
team in organized ball, and for this
reason, it is believed, Ferguson has
refused to sign his name to any Tiger
documents. But the reports which are
stated to have been given out at Navin
field headquarters, indicate that Man-
ager Jennings is confident Ferguson
will be added to his staff of pitchers
as soon as the Varsity player gets his
law degree in June.
Since Ferguson first sprang into
prominence through his strong work in
the box for Michigan last year, numer-
ous reports have been current as to his
agreements to play with Major league
teams. The Varsity man has denied
them all up to this time, and the big
circuit scouts have been consistently
disappointed in failing to land him.
Ferguson pitched his first full-route
game for the present season on Thurs-
day. He worked the latter part of the
Kalamazoo battle, when the Normal
team played on Ferry field, but it was
not until this last week that he went
the complete distance. Due to his abil-
ity to keep the Orangemen scoreless,
and the failure of his own team-mates
to push over a tally, "Fergie" was
forced to pitch 11 innings. He was
going just as good at the last as at
Some of his critics have affirmed
that Ferguson will be unable to make
good in big company, but the Michigan
rooters are confident of his ability to
make a creditable showing if he does
go to work for Jennings. The Varsity
twirler has a wonderful fast ball, a
good change of pace, and the ability
to size up batsmen which is invaluable.
His inability to field bunted balls has'
been largely remedied through the
coaching of Lundgren. He has never
been a strong batter. but the time-
honored rule which says that pitchers,
are not supposed to hit will probably
work in his favor.

and Play Good Games in
Class League.
It is pretty early in the season to
try to single out any men in partic-
ular who are showing up well in their
class games, but certain of these de-
serve mention. Eleven games have-
been played thus far and several men
have proved their ability and have
won for themselves a name among
their teammates.

selves and went through a short prac-
tice, with kicking receiving the ma-
jority of attention.
The squad of punters which Coach
Yost picked. out before leaving for his
home last week will continue work
for several weeks. This bunch will
be composed of a half dozen backfield
and end tryouts, and the men will de-
vote their time exclusively to the
kicking end of the game. The work
will be under the direction of one of
the veterans, who has had experience
in this line under Yost.
In a letter written to Captain Coch-
ran recently, the coach expressed
himself as well satisfied with the work
accomplished during the training pe-
riod. He was able to get a line on the
abilities of the men, and returned to
Nashville well versed in the qualifi-
cation of each of the players.
When the squad of kickers turn in
their moleskins, all actual gridiron
work will cease until next fail, when
40 men will be invited back for the
preliminary practice at Ferry field.
The make-up of this squad will not be
determined until late in the summer.
Class Tournament of Club Will Proba-

Golfers will have their last oppor-

Golf club at the links of the Ann Ar-

The class tournament will be played
this week in all probability. If suffi-
cient men qualify, four men will com-
pose each team, and the matches will
be foursomes. If the number of qual-
ifiers is small, twosomes will be play-
ed. The qualifying round consists of
nine holes. Score cards are being
turned over to E. R. Borcherdt, '17.
The second tourney of the organi-
zation, the campus championship, will
be run off in about two, weeks. The
qualifying round for this well be 18
holes. The matches will also be 18
holes, until the finals which will be
36 holes. The tournament will be
conducted in two flights, and the club
will donate prizes to the winners.

For almost five weeks, the tennis
men have been at active work on the
courts at Ferry field, and for a short
time before that some of those now on
the squad were training in Waterman
gym getting into shape for the spring
play. Last year's team had but less
than two' weeks of practice before
leaving for the east, and it showed its
greenness when it failed to get start-
ed on its winning way until after it
had lost its earlier matches.
With the team in good physical con-
dition, and with two more weeks of
practice than before, Captain Reindel's
men should meet Oberlin with a
strong front. In addition to the reg-
ular session in spring training the
team has passed through two of the
hardest matches that a college team
can play, having met two strong club

of club members such as the two
matches just passed through, the ten-
nis team gets better training than by
any other possible method. .All the
players on the teams are either men
who have made their mark in college
tennis and have graduated from that
stage of the game, or else they are ex-
perts who have been at the game since
boyhood. In all the large eastern col-
leges where tennis is recognized as
one of the greater sports the college
tear goes through a series of club
matches which sometimes number
about five or six before the team meets
any college competition at all.
The only thing that augurs ill for
the Varsity in its coming trip is the
fact that but one of the men who can
make the team has ever played on a
Michigan tennis team before this
year. But with the advantage that
Captain Reindel's have over the
teams of other years, through a more
prolonged practice and a better train-
ing in match play, it is likely that the
inexperienced nature of the men will
not have a great effect on the out-
come of the matches on the eastern
From the present standing of the
men it is likely that Captain Reindel,
Crawford, Mack and Switzer will be
the men who go east. These men have
been playing together all this year,
and the last three named are men
who have been playing tennis together
since they began their career on the
1916 All-Fresh team. The team work
that can be developed among men who
know each other's style so well as
these men do will be a great asset to
the invading quartet, and this, coupled
with the club matches, and the longer
spring practice, should fully over-bal-
ance the greenness of the men, and as-
sure Michigan at least as good a show-
ing in the east as was hers last year,
and probably should result in the es-
tablishing of a record year for Michi-
gan tennis.

polled out several long ones in the

The battery of the fresh law team
