With four defeats charged up against
them and only two victories installed
in the "won" column, the Michigan
baseball team completed one of the
most disastrous eastern trips that the
athletic records of this institution dis-
close.
The Wolverines were hitting well
for the most part on the eastern jaunt
but the pitchers were ineffective and
failed to hold the enemy at bay as a
total of over 40 runs in six games will
eloquently testify. Miller seemed to
be the one exception, "Shorty" con-
tributing both of the victories that are
accredited to the Michigan team.
Brandell's work was one of the dis-
tinct features of the trip, "Bran" hit-
ting and fielding in sensational style
throughout. Lundgren benched Wal-'
terhouse after the first couple of
games, and the center fielder returned
to his old stamping ground at short,
where he nabbed everything in sight.
Brandell accumulated a grand total of
12 safeties in a total of six games, and'
several of his drives were for two and.
three bases.
Coach Lundgren stated that Reem
performed acceptably in the outfield in
Brandell's stead, and the new arrange-
ment stands for the present. The work
of "Tommy" Thomas at third base was
another pleasing aspect of the trip,
while "Morry" Dunne caught a first
class game and iegained the batting
eye that he discarded down in Dixie
early in ti' -ason. Dunne's hitting
was timely and the backstop v as meet-
ing the ball right on the nose all
during the trip.
Coach Lundgren stated that Reem
would continue to play center field
and lead off, with Niemann batting
second. The next contest is with M.
A. C. and the game takes place at
Lansing on Saturday afternoon. The
Varsity will probably get into fction
against the All-Fresh some time dur-
ing the week. The freshmen are anxi-
ous to trim the regulars.

Youth May Coach
Leland Stanford
Reynolds Accompanies Track Team in
Place of Veteran "Dad"
Moulton
When the Leland Stanford track
team left Ann Arbor late Saturday
night for the scene of the eastern In-
tercollegiates at Cambridge, they took
with them a personage who has a lit-
tle something on most anyone in his
profession.
This man carries the name of Rey-
nolds, and is commonly known as
"Cupid" for obvious reasons. He is
said to be in line 'for the position of
coach of the western school, super-
seding "Dad" Moulton, who is about to
retire. "Cupid" is going to be the
youngest track boss out of the jungles
if he lands the position, for he is but
23 years of age.
On the present trip, the man who
has just escaped his 'teens, is known
as the manager of the squad, inasmuch
as Coach Moulton is not with his ath-
letes, but Dame Rumor hath it that
"Cupid" will be vested with the name
of coach after the present season.

ting average of .500. Dancer and Mor-

honor, the former having a .375 rec-
ord against a .400 tally for the latter.

WEST AND SOUTH ARE TO
REPRESENTED AT EVANSTON

558 Athletes Are Entered in Big Nine
Meet to Take Place
June 3
Chicago, May 22.-The University of
California, representing the far west,
and the Mississippi Aggies from the
south, are among the 26 institutions
entered in the conference track and
field meet at Evanston, June 3. En-
tries closed Saturday and were an-
nounced yesterday by the secretary of
the Big Nine managing committee.
The field, which includes 558 ath-
letes, is perhaps the best that has ever
taken part in a conference meet.
Among the entrants are Arlie Mucks,
national A. A. U. shot put champion,
and Robert Simpson, holder of the
world's record in the high hurdles at
14 4-5 seconds.
Others are Hoyt, the Grinnell sprint-
er who defeated four of the best fur-
long men in the country at the Drake
relay games April 22; Mike Mason, Il-
linois' great miler, and Dismond, the
speedy quarter-miler from the Univer-
sity of Chicago. The University of
California will send a picked team of
seven men.
Besides the Big Nine schools-Illi-
nois, Ohio State, Iowa, Indiana, Wis-
consin, Northwestern, Purdue, Minne-
sota ,and Chicago--teams have been
entered from the following: California,
Nebraska, Missouri, Notre Dame, South
Dakota, Kansas, De Pauw, Kansas Ag-
gies, Mississippi Aggies, Michigan Ag-
gies, Iowa State, Grinnell, Coe, Ober-

" e is 'Pie'for
lie, "Says john
Are you an athlete? Have you ath-
letic aspirations, then? Do you ever
hope to tear up the cinders on the
track and incidentally knock all for-
mer records cold-do you think you
have some home run clouts stored
away in the good, old, full-arm swing
which used to knock the apples off the
trees in the orchard, and swat flies
in your mother's kitchen?
If any of the above applies to you,
you are probably one of those indi-
viduals who have been sitting at the
feet of athletic trainers and following
their advice in regard to what you
should eat. Perish the thought! These
sages of the past are finished-their
gospel is dead wrong. And here's the
proof:
Assistant Athletic Director John Ed-
munds, who recently broke into ath-
letic circles when he established a
standing high kick record by break-
ing the tape at 7 feet 4 inches, has
corralled another record. He is the
champion pie-eater of this section of
the country, open to all challengers.
After whetting his genteel appetite
on a banquet one evening John cas-
ually consumed five mince pies with-
out blinking an eyelash.
If Edmunds' theory works out uni-
versally, "Steve" Farrell and Harry
Tuthill will become but memories, and
in their stead will be found such cu-
linary specialists as Joe Parker and
"Denny."
