Pitchers Will Be Given More Leeway
Next Week, Says Wolver-
ine Mentor



After a long three-hour drill this aft-
ernoon, the Michigan baseball squad
will be cut again. The coach stated
that practice would commence at the
usual hour, although the men will not
be'dismissed in all probability until
well along towards 4:00 o'clock.
Both batting and fielding practice
will be the order of the day for the
work this afternoon, the time being
split in this fashion yesterday. The:
first hour and a half was devoted to
batting, the final thirty-minute period
going for a fielding drill.
Coach Lundgren stated that next
week the pitchers would be given more
leeway and that slow curves would
spring into prominence. The box ar-
tists have been progressing in splen-
did fashion according to the Wolverine
mentor and are going faster daily. An-
drus has been showing to a good ad-
vantage, while Miller has been work-
ing in good shape. Soddy has not
been out much as yet, but the coach
stated that he could probably step into
the box tomorrow and pitch the best
brand of baseball of any man on the
Following today's reduction in the
size of the squad and with the pitchers
beginning to cut loose more and more,
the coach will be able to draw a much
better estimate of the ability of the
new comers. This afternoon's cut in
the squad will -not be the last one
until themen go south either, as many
of. the aspirants had hoped. A fur-
ther step will be taken in this direc-
tion later on.,
The squad as a whole is working
much faster than a week ago, the men
handling the ball cleaner and getting
their throws away much faster. In-
cidentally, the big majority of the play-
ers are putting considerably more
vigor into their heaves. Not only are
the arms in better shape but the epi-
demic of tender hands that is always
in evidence at the outset of the sea-
son, is rapidly passing.
Coach Farrell of the track team has
hiked to foreign fields with his two-
mile relay squad, and Lundgren will
probably use the gym until 4:00 o'clock.
Freshmen shot putters are warned to
be on hand a trifle earlier than this,
though, for Lundgren and his base-
ballers may desist ahead of this hour
and "Cec" Cross wants to start as soon
as the diamond aggregation clears

Star hurdler Back Again After Being

time. Farrell has missed his star

to the hospital for a week to recuper-
ate from the ravages of quinsey;
Corbin found it impossible to get
into shape for the Notre Dame indoor
meet, but now that he has hurdlgd .the
difficulties which sickness has placed
in his path, he expects to be in great
form for the sticks when the oftdoor

Barrett Advised to Leave Cornelli
(hood; Three Harvard Men
LOst to Team


Michigan isn't the only college that
seems to have suffered from eligibility
rules. Over half a dozen of the Wol-
verines' best bets in the athletic line
were rendered hors de combat before
the season even opened when the se-
mester marks rolled in.
But Michigan isn't suffering alone.
Down at Cornell Charley Barrett
was not only declared ineligible but
he was advised to forsake whatever
ideas he may have entertained relative
to a higher education and leave Ithaca
for good. Charley left.
Now word comes fromHarvard that
Captain Gilman, Enwright and Boles
have received similar messages from
the. Harvard faculty. Gilman is cap-
tain-elect of the Crimson squad and.
one of the star- linemen of last season.
The other two were both backfield men.
There is a possibility that Enwright
may be able to win his way back into
the good graces of the faculty, but the
case of the other two boys is said to
--well, anyway, they seem to have
won their last "H".
Four Teams Entered in the Finals of

Team Record
With the championship round sche-
duled to begin next Monday night, the
class bowling tournament is gradually
drawing to a close. Four teams quali-
fled for the finals, among which the
junior dents take the lead with three
games won and one lost for a percent-
age of .750. The senior dents follow
with a percentage of .500, having brok-
en even in the two games bowled. The
senior engineers, having lost two out
of the three matches in which they
took part, come next with a mark of

the only game bowled by them, take

The second provides that if there
are no falls during the two extra pe-

shall declare the man on top longest

arm or elbow of the man beneath.

New York, Mar. 10.-Apparently
under the same influence as caused
yesterday's recovery, prices on the
stock exchange advanced today. It was
not contended bf anyone that the

changed by this reiteration of the pur-
poses and the echo of Berlin. The day's
advances in stocks were irregularly
distributed but th'e tendency was evi-
dent enough, despite some reaction at

paid to the day's Mexican news.

Percy says that he employs a com-
bination of systems. The only credit
lie takes for himself is that he had
the patience to try out the theories of
others, despite the fact that results
were not forthcoming at once. He

were right, and staked his position and

Norwegian Steamer Sunk in North Sea
Copenhagen, March 10.-The Norwe-

and sank in the North sea, according
to dispatches received here today. The
crew of 15 is believed to have perished.



Several records have been -set in the
present tournament so far, Iouis Jo-
seph, '18, with a score of 247 taking
individual honors for a single game.
Levinson, '17, set the highest individ-
ual mark for three games with a total
of 623.
The juni-or lits established records
in both the singles and in the three-
game bowl, setting a record of 970
in the former and of 2789 in the latter.
The first match of the finals will be
between the junior lits and the junior
dents, following which the senior en-
gineers clash with the senior dents.
