SPORT IN THREE TILTS
Architects, Senior and Junior Boiler-
iidkers Tiale. Openlng
Following a three-day post-vacationt
peri:d of inactivity, the race for classl
supremacy in indoor baseball was re-3
sumed last niglit. The architects,.
senior engineers and junior engineers
were the Yictors in their respective
contests with the junior lits, the soph
engineers and the pharmics. So few1
of the junior lits appeared on the1
scene of battle that the game went to
the architects by forfeit. Since this3
is the juniors' second forfeiture, they
are now ineligible to participate
again in any indoor baseball ganmej
this season unless a satisfactory ex-
planation can be given to Director]
When their opponents, the junior
lits, failed to take the field against
them, the architects took sides against
a scrub team and wete thoroughly
trounced to the tune of 8 to 2. The
main strength of the scrubs lay in
their junior lit battery, their boxnan
striking out on two occasions the en-
tire arehitect side, while the scrub
catcher was sure death to all archi-
"Tommy" Trelfa and company,
representing the senior engineers in
the struggle for indoor baseball hon-
ors. completoly swamped the soph
boilermakers iwho played against
them. The sophomores were helpless
before the masterful work of the se-,
nior battery men, Trelfa and Com-
stock, scoring only two runs and those
through the aid of an over-excited se-
nior infield. When the senior boiler-
makers came to bat they pounded the
ball to the far corners of the gym for
a total of fifteen runs.
The final contest was a spirited tilt
between the pharmics and the junior
engineers. The playing of both sides,
in the field and at bat, was of a supe-
rior brand of indoor. The pharmics,
however, were at a great disadvantage
due to the absence of Kirchgessner,
the freshman prodigy and pitcher of
the pharmic team. Shaw, substitute
pitcher, was chosen to take his place,
but was wild with men on bases, while
Gardner, boxman for the engineers,
Tpitche(l a steady game and was sup-
ported by an excellent infield and a
team that could bat to better advan-
tage than the pharmics. Hence the
pill rollers were forced to succumb
to defeat, the boilermakers taking the
game by a score of 8 to 4.

ALTN'1'1UiW TO REPORT TO THE
p'f If1TES FOR SPRING PRACTICE
Michigan may soon have another
representative in the big leagues- to
assist George Sisler in spreading the
fame of the Wolverine. Jesse Altel-
burg, who has been taking literary
work in the university since the be-
ginning of the semester, has just re-
ceived notice that he is to report
with Pittsburg in the spring.
This is not Altenburg's first ap-
pearance under the big tent, as he
worked out with the Pirates during
their spring training last year. Alten-
burg spent the summer with Youngs-
town, in the Central league, where he
fielded in good shape and wielded the
stick for a percentage of over .300.
I-He has an excellent chance to land
a regular berth with the Pirates next
season as two Pittsburg fielders will
not be among those present when the
roil of smoky-city ball-tossers is
called by Manager Jimmy Callahan.

R. B. FASHION CLOTHES
At these games the running broad
jump, which has been added to the,
program at the request of the Univer-
sity of Pennsylvania, will be featured
in order to help in the development,
of a larger and better balanced field
of jumpers for the outdoor meets of
1916. A careful study of the work
of the college field athlete has shown
that the average of proficiency is low-
est in broad jumping. A number of
the college track coaches, realising
this, are endeavoring to develop more
broad jumpers from raw material and,
raise the standard of performance
among the regulars. In order to ac-
complish this, more practice and the
incentive of competition is necessary.
It is thought that such an event card-
ed for the Indoor Intercollegiates will
greatly facilitate the work of the
coaches in this direction.
In order to bring out as many com-
petitors as possible the broad jump
at the coming Indoor Intercollegiates
will be conducted as a team competi-
tion. Each college holding member-
ship in the I. C. A. A. A. A. will be
permitted to enter one five-man team
and the best jump of each member of
the team will be added and the total
distance divided by five in order to
give the team average. The college
combination showing the longest aver-
age jump Will be awarded first place.
The regular take-off and dirt land-
ing pit wifl be used and the initial
attempt to make the running broad
jump a regular feature of indoor com-
petition will be watched with interest
by all close students of college track
and field sport.
