TWO INFIELOERS PICKED
BY BISEBALL MENTOR
PITCHERS WORKED CONSTANTLY
THROUGH HARD HOUR OF
PRACTICE
Two lineups for infields were worked
out by Coach Lundgren yesterday aft-
ernoon in Waterman gymnasium. In-
side practice necessitates that only in-
field and battery practice take place.
Most of the space on the floor is de-
voted to infield work, the batteries
occupying the room along the side.
The team is coming through in fine
shape and every moment spent in ob-
serving the practice convinces the on-
looker that Michigan can be reason-
ably safe in counting on as good a
baseball team as it has seen for some
time.
Practices Smooth
The smoothness with which the twd
infields practiced yesterday should Iii
itself be reassuring. The Coach was
obliged to stop the proceedings only
occasionally to correct a mistake in
form.
The first of the two temporary in-
fields consisted of Huber as catcher,
Adams at first base, Knode at second
base, Van Boveni at shortstop and Gar-
rett at third. Knode, the captain of
the team,' won a letter last year at
shortstop but was placed at second
yesterday, the vacancy at the short-'
stop position being filled by Vail Bov-
ent, who once cinched a berth' on the
All-fresh. Garrett was moved to third
from second where he was used last
season. Adams at first base seemed
to be in as good form as ever, with
the same knack of picking up the
grounders.
r day Be Black Horse
Huber is the man that appears to
be the black horse, This man was,
in the University last year but did
not come out for the freshman dia-
mond stunts so his entrance in the
Varsity competition at this time was
unheralded. He is now hailed as be-
ing one of the best men who is try-;
ing out for the home plate job.
Other catching candidates who are.
practicing daily are Schluntz, Hayes
and Cohn.
The last named, the big football
star,has during the year shown: a ver-
satility in sports* that is unusual.
This is the third appearance he has
made,
The seconds of the infields was
composed of Schluntz as catcher,
Langenham at first base, Pheney at
second, Labadie at shortstop, Fromke
at third. Schluntz is another man
'who is in the -close run for cthn
honors and has an ease in handling
the ball which will count a great deal
in tils favor. Langenham's officiating

at first base has no particular sig-
nificance, it is thought, his function
being the filling out of the lineup tem-
porarily. His regular position is in
the outfield.
Pheney Did Well
Pheney did well during the after-
non at second, while Labadie showed
up particularly in pegging the ball
over to Langenham with deadly accu-
racy. Fromke, although he has been
out of the game for two years, is
lworking in fine form.
In the battery workouts, incessant
drill was kept up all of the afternoon.
Every aspirant pitcher was putting
himself through his best paces.
As soon as the squad can start in at
Ferry field, hard daily practices will
be conducted to get the men into
shape for the'first contest of the year
with Ypsilanti Noraml on April 16.
TRACKSTERS READY
FOR MEET TONIGHT
.Headed by Captain Sedgwick and
Manager Clarke the second half of the
track team, the men in the field events
and the mile and two milers, left for
Northwestern Friday morning.
The squad was in the best of spirits
in anticipation of a victory tonight.
The meet is expected toybe close and
result in some fast races, especially in
the two mile and pole vault, where
heavy opposition to the Michigan en-
tries is looked for. Moore of Chicago,
has been running well in that the long
distance and won that race from
Northwestern in good time.
GYM TO END WEEK
PRIOR TO J -- HOP
Dr. May announos that gym classes
will undoubtedly conclude next week.
The classes are usually continued un-
til spring vacation, but on account
of the preparations for the J-Hop,
they will end one week earlier. The
classes have been unusually large this
semester because of the return of
many of the freshmen and sophomores
who did not finish their required gym-
nasium work.
BASEBALL DI1AMONI) STILT
TOO SOFT FOR PRACTICES
Ferry field will soon be open to
Coach Lundgren and his athletes for
baseball practice. The diamond is in
good condition, the winter weather
leaving only a few low spots. The
ground is still too soft for practice,
however, on account of a number of
recent rains.
The stands are still closed, and
probably will not be opened until after
spring, vacation.

WIEMAN NOT TO RETURN
TO SCHOOLNEXT YEAR
IS FILLING POSITION OF PHYSI-
CAL DIRECTOR IN
WEST
It has been reported that Tad Wie-
man, ex-'19, football captain in ab-
sentia last fall, will not return to
school this year. He left the Uhiver-
sity last year to go to an army train-
ing camp. At present Wieman is a
physical director in a Los Angelos
high school where he expects to stay
at least through the spring of 1920.
Tad Wieman has had a brilliant ca-
reer on the Michigan gridiron. During
the. 1916 season he played on the line
and in 1917 in the backfield. Because
of his remarkable record he was elect-
ed captain of the team for the fall of
1f18. He was unable to fill this posi-
tion, however, going to a training
camp b'efore school opened this fall.
The news that Wieman will not, re-
turn will necessitate the coach
changing his plans for he had ex-
pected Wieman to play a big part in
next fall's football program.
