Because of ig N uflber in Vaca iies
on Team, Coach Lundgren
Acts Slowly
Baseball practice yesterday was di-
vided into two parts, the coach spend-
ing the first portion of the period at
batting practice, but finishing up with
a snappy fielding drill.
The coach will probably watch his
men the rest of the week before he
makes another cut in the squad. Fol-
lowing Saturday's drill, there will
probably be a reduction and the num-
ber of players will begin to assume
a more workable basis. Nearly 60 is
a pretty big number to handle with
any degree of comfort, but the coach
is moving slowly.
The big number of vacancies on the
team this year means that Lundgren
will have to depend upon the new-
comers, and thus he is going slowly
in the matter of cutting the squad.
J. S. Norton, the outfielder who top-
ped last year's All-Fresh aggregation
when it came to batting, was out yes-
terday for the first time. Norton's
eligibiltly has been questioned, but his
status will soon be determined.
Perhaps the most spectacular feature
of yesterday's workout was a sensa-
tioal and thrilling one-lap race be-
tween "Wally" and "Wee Willie" Nie-

exception of the battle between the se-

show up for their appointment. Two
games were played off, the J-laws de-
feating the fresh laws by a 17-11 score,
and the foresters worsting the fresh
dents, 14-8. The first game had been
been postponed from an earlier date.
Out of the other three games scheduled
for last night, two were forfeited and

entire gate receipts. "Steve" also
acted in several other capacities, fir-
ing the starting pistol and acting as
judge. The race was close all the
way, and those on the floor below were
in doubt as to the winner and had to
wait for enlightenment from the track
boss. It was understood that the loser
challenged the winner to a return
match, and with it will go the title of
undisputed champion of the male mem-
bers of the Niemann family between
the ages of 18 and 22.
