BASEBALL COACH PLANS
{PRACTICE CAME TODAYI
TOSSERS ISSUED' UNIFORMS TUES-
DAY; MUCH PEP EVI-
DENT
Coach Lundgren announced that
baseball practice Satifrday afternoon
will consist of a practice game play-
ed by teams chosen from the Var-
sity men. The game will be called
promptly at 3 o'clock.
Those interested in the progress
made by the squad this year will have
a good chance to review its merits
in this game. The teams will be
picked so as to divide up the ability
as evenly as possible. This is only
the first of the practice games which
will be played during the season as
the Coach is a firm believer in this
form of practice, maintaining that in
no other way can the men get as
much valuable baseball experience.
These games also give him an oppor-
tunity to see what his men can do in
action.
Batting and Infield Practice
Yesterday's work comprised bat-
ting practice conducted under the
watchful eye of the coach. There is
no doubt but that this daily swinging
of the stick will have a good effect on
the team..
Infield wdrk followed the batting or-
deal and the way the men sped the
sphere around the sacks bodes evil
for the team's future opponents. The
men have been drilled in this depart-
ment of the game since the first prac-
tices and whether they can apply what
they have learned will be brought out
by the game this afternoon.
It' may now be safely said that the
baseball season is in full swing. The
ball has started rolling and will gain
impetus from day to day. The fact
that the practice game will be played
on the big 'diamond is significant that
things have begun in earnest.
Uniforms Issued to Men
Coach Lundgren has issued uni-
forms to all men, and the rest which
the team received at the first part
of the. week seems to have had done
a good job as far as re-entlfusing the
men goes. Then again the coach's
illness kept him from taking part in
the work Monday and Tuesday al-
though he was present to take gen-
eral supervision of affairs.

of Michigan's hope is placed this year,

'Many Noted Athletic Stars Enter
International Track Meet At Parisi

I Judging from the number of Olym-
pic winners and other championship,
holders already entered, the inter-Al-
lied field meet to be held next June in
France seems destined to become the1
biggest international tourney in his-s
tory, as well as the greatest of mil-
itary athletic contests.
The United States has at present1
four first class entries, all champions
in their respective events and all
scheduled to figure in the results of1
the coming games.1
Ted Meredith, who served as a cap-
tain in aviation and who holds the
world's record for 800 meters, 8801
yards, and 440 yards, is now in this
country but is expected to return to
France for the meet.1
Earl Caddock May Compete
Serg. Earl Caddock, world's cham-1
pion heavyweight wrestler, is now in
France under treatment for stomach1
trouble but hopes to be in fighting
trim by June. He has been conceded
the title of the second army and in,
case of his recovery in time to allow1
proper training, will make a strong
representative for the A. E. F.
Lieut. J. H. Duncan, known to the
sporting world as winner of the
world's record in the discuss throw
at Stockholm, is now in the best of
form. Last spring he raised his own
mark by hurling the discus a trifle
over 149 feet at the Paris games.
The fourth member of the premier
United States quartet is Chaplain
Fred C. Thomson, three times national
all-around champion of this country.
France Has Swimmers
France will have two valuable en-
tries in .the persons of Lieut. Charles
Nungesser, the famous ace, and Meist-
er, who has been serving the tri-colors
as a poilu. Both of these athletes
have distinguished themselvesainthe
noted Seine swimming races and are
has displayed a speed at running bas-
es which would rival the spectacular
pitching ability which he has shown.-
The most interesting part of the prac-
tice is the battery work. There is a
good deal of excellent material at
hand. Sheidler, one of the likely can-
didates for pitching honors and a vet-
eran of last year, surprised everyone
the other day with a drop that would
fool the wisest o fthem all.
probable candidates for the honors

in this event at the post war meet.
Great Britain is busy preparing a
list that will rival America's All-Star
combination. Among the athletes of
the United Kingdom who have already
demonstrated their ability, are Lieut.
Col. A. N. S. Jackson, winner of the
1,500 meter run at the Sweden Olym-
pic in 1912, and R. E. Walker whose
record shows a victory in the 100
meter run at London in 1908. The lat-
ter recently proved that he still re-
tains his old speed by contesting in a
military meet at Woking and without
any preliminary training, carrying off
two dashes on a -slow track.
Any Soldier Eligible
Eligibility for the meet has been de-
cided by the committee to include,
any officer or soldier who has at any
time between Aug. 4, 1914, and Nov.
11, 1918, been a member of the military
forces of any of the 21 Allied nations.
The broad scope of this provision in-
sures a gathering of the world's best
athletes and consequent heavy com-
petition for the big international sport
convention.
DR. MAY PLANS
INTERCLASS BALL
Class baseball is to be started soon.
Dr. May wants all the classes to get
together and pick out representatives
for a meeting to be held very soon to
discuss this question. A schedule will
probably be drawn up at this meeting
and all plans should be settled then.
Although the exact date has not been
settled "yet it will probably be some
time next week or right after vaca-
tion.
Practice will be started soon after
this meeting so anyone expecting to
go out should keep in touch with the
moan that is elected to represent his
class. Baseballs and bats will be furn-
ished but the men will have to use
their own gloves. This will be a great
opportunity, especially for freshmen
who have aspirations for the Varsity.
Success this year on the class team
means an easier time in trying-out for
the Michigan team.

Four thousand students read it every
morning.-Adv.

Coach Lundgren requests all
baseball men to be in uniform
at 2:30 o'clock Saturday after-
noon. The practice game will
begin at 3 o'clock.
'20 GIRLS DEFEAT
SOPHS THURSDAY
The consolation banner was award-
ed to the junior girls' basketball team,
victors over the sophomores in the
consolation game played Thursday aft-
ernoon in Barbour gymnasium. The
score was 22 -to 12 in favor of the
class of '20. t
Eight baskets made in the second
half by Dorothy Jonesfi junior for-
ward1, decided t1e game for the ju-
niors. At the end of the first half
'the score stood 8 to 6 in favor of the
sophomores. The juniors,- who were
rather slow in the first period, warmed
up in the second half and eclipsed the
sophomores who still fought well. No
fouls were made during the game.
Teamwork, agility and greater
height enabled the juniors to play a
superior game. Elsie Erley, junior
jumping center, deserves especial
commendation for her work in the
second half. While all the junior scor-
ing was done by Dorothy Jones, Edna
Daskom rendered valuable assistance
in keeping the ball near the junior
basket.
