FRESHMAN TEAMS TO PLAY BE-.
FORE UNIV. OF DETROIT
GAME FRIDAY
The Varsity basketball team was
put through an intense practice and
drill on the fundamentals of passing,
basket shooting, and team work last
night. Coach Mitchell has decided
that a direct reverse from the hard
form of practice scrimmaging, is nec-
essary. He is giving the Varsity boys
a rest and at. the same time is em-
phasizing some important phases of
the work that have not been taken up
as yet. Some time was spent on per-
fecting pivot dodging.
Working Up Substitutes
Only those on the Varsity squad,
who have not had the opportunity to
get into any of the recent games,
took part in a scrimmage with the
freshmen ,last night. "I want to see
how some of these boys will show.
up in. action and work up a good
string of substitutes," said the coach,
Kazoo Game Significant
, Next Saturday's game will give
Michigan a line on what her chances
are for a victory in the M. A. C. and
Conference games. The Maize and the
Blue will play Kalamazoo on that
night. The Kazooers held M. A. C.
on the Lansing floor to the score of
18-17.
Fresh Gridders Form Team
An interesting development on the
freshman squad is the probable pre-
liminary game which, it is planned,
will take place just before the Uni-
versity of Detroit game Friday.
Big '22 Squad Out
Fifty-four candidates for the 1922
team are out and of these there are
10 with valuable experience. Coach
Rowley has divided the whole turn-
out into 10 teams and will eliminate
by watching scrimmage games which
he will arrange between the teams.
The coach was much pleased with the,
showing made so far and said that
he expects to develop a "whiz of a
team."
MICHIGAN WILL NOT ENTER
BIG WATER MEET AT D. 1. C.

WOLVERINES HAVE
HEAVY SCHEDULE
Coach Lungren's University of
Michigan baseball team will open one
of the hardest schedules ever com-
piled for a Wolverine nine, here April
16, if a suitable game can be found to
fill this date which is now open. There
are but three open dates on the sched-
ule and these are the first three games
to be played, all practice games. Six
of the nine universities in the Confer-
ence excluding Michigan, are included
in the schedule, only Minnesota, Wis-
consin, and Northwestern not having
been signed.
Practice will begin shortly after the
second semester, Coach Lundgren be-
ing expected to arrive within several
weeks. Many of last year's cham-
pionship team are already back in col-
lege or have expressed their inten-
tions of returning, and prospects are
bright to retain the flag won by Cap-
tain Glen's nine of last spring.

CAGE GAME NEEDS
SINGLE MANAGER
Up to a short time ago the athletic
authorities had decided to do awayI
with the office of basketball manager1
for the coming season. Yesterday1
they reported that there had been a+
change of mind and one would be ap-
pointed in a few days to act in this
capacity for the home games. He will
be included in the basketball picture
and possibly be given a manager's cap
at the end of the year, but will ac-
company the team on none of its
trips. The reason for this is the poor
financial condition of the Athletic as-
sociation.
The original announcement that
there would be no manager was re-
ceived with some misgiving upon the
campus. This position had been a
part of all athletics for many years
back and to do away with it in any
sport would be to take away from
the student body what they have come
to look upon as an inalienable right.
It would also have caused the coach-
ing staff considerably more work and
would have tended towards ineffi-
ciecny.
Coach Would Have More Work
Because it would be taking some-
thing away from the student body that
they believe is their own, because it
would tend towards inefficiency of
management, and because it would
pile up more work upon the should-
ers of Coach Mitchell, who already
has his hands full in producing a
winning team from a scarcity of ma-
terial, it is probably fortunate that
the authorities have changed their
mind.
The man picked will be giving up
the enjoyment of the many trips
which have been the right of all man-
agers for the little honor and the hard
work that remain. Surely he de-
serves much credit for accepting such
a position.
D. A. C. TO HOLD SWIMMING
TOURNAMENT; STARS ENTER
The swimming tourney to be held
at the D. A .C. in the near future will
be one of the biggest meets of its kind
ever held in Detroit. The big auto-
city pool will be the scene of many
hotly contested events, for a great
number of the most brilliant aquatic
stars of the country are entered. The
meet is being supervised by the A.
A. U., and men, women, and children
are eligible.

Light practice for all the men con-
tinued under the direction of Steve
Farrell yesterday afternoon. Jumping
rope was one of the most popular
forms of limbering up and most of
those reporting for the first time yes-
terday or Monday found the suppos-
edly girlish pastime quite a -help in
rounding into form.
Se--ral Old Men Out
Captain Sedgewick and Jchnson
were both on the track for a while
in the afternoon and within no time
they will be in shape to cop a few
firsts in their respective events. An-
other man whose ability is well known
to the followers of last year's track
team, Buell, was also out. Meese, a
sprinter on the freshman , team last
year, was out and gives considerable
promise. Cook, another sprinter with
a reputation from last year, has not
reported yet, but he is expected some
time the end of the week.
Few Men for Distant Events
There is ;a gr~eat scarcity of men
for the mile and the half mile which
ups noticeable yesterday. The plac-
es occupied by Donnelley and Stohl
are vacant this year and in order to
complete and balance the team it is
necessary to find men of ability for
these events. Not only are the places
in the distance races vacant but also
the positions, on the relay team. It
is hoped that the near future will
bring out some men who are able to
fill these desirable positions suitably.
As yet_ nothing can be found out
about the schedule for this season
but the practice will continue just as
regularly as if the first meet was only
a few days off.
Daily want ads tring results.

Ty Cobb's home state may be pick-

spring. In former years Hughie Jen-

to get Ty in camp on time, Naivin is
seriously considering sunny Georgia.

"Michigan will not send a team to
the big water 'meet at the D. A. C.,"
Doc. May said today. "Beca'use the
University has no tank for the boys
to practice in we cannot be repre-
sented." .Although there are plenty
of aquatic fans to get up a good team;
there is no honor in being beaten and
Doc. says he won't enter a relay four
unless he has "Just as good a chance
of winning as the other fellow.
The meet is to be the biggest ever
held in Detroit and the big club pool
will be the scene of many hotly con-
tested events for the shining lights
of swimdom are slated. Coach Mann
of the D. A. C. wanted Michigan }o
send a relay quartette.
This lack of a tank on the campus
touched a sore spot with Doctor May.
When the Union pool is finished It
"will help matters some but it won't
fill the bill in many ways that a
natatorium in connection with the
gym would. The Doctor's air castles
take the shape of a tank 100 feet
long, from four to 12 feet deep, and
a 12 foot fancy diving stand. He
would have plenty of floor space with
permanent bleachers to hold 500 to
a 1,000 and an illuminated "M" in the
bottom of the pool for night meets.
