WOLERINES TO LE
TOIGHT FOR CO
16 PLAYERS TO GET PRACTICE
WITH MINOR LEAGUE
TEAMS
Sixteen players were picked to form
the string of diamond men which will
represent Michigan in Columbus this
year. The squad will shove off at the
Michigan Central station at 6:05
o'clock Friday afternoon.
One of the earliest annual tests of
Wolverine baseball worth is the trip
to Columbus to lue up against that
city's American association team. The
effort to put over a big victory at this
time is always great and Coach Lund-
gren finds that these games give him
an excellent opportunity to discover
what his men can do in action. The
players themselves, for the reason that
their actions on the trip count a great
deal towards their placing on the
team, are always on their toes.
Personnel Announced
The coach announced that the line-
up would consist of the following:
Knode, Glenn, Scheidler, Parks, Kim-
ball, Crockett or Lemp, Huber,
Schluntz, Adams, Bowerman, Pheney,
Garrett,.Froemke, Van Boven, Cooper,
Karpus. The above named players
comprise all the best material. The
coach has not yet given out to which
positions he will assign these men.
There are as many surmises as there
are men on the squad as to what shall

be the lineup. In practices of late
the coach has seemed to have had it
in his mind to keep switching the in-
fields about until the ideal combina-
tion appeared.
Many believe that the probable ar-
rangement will be to put Knode at
second base, making room for Van
Boven at shortstop. Garrett would be
moved from second to third base.
With Adams at first base and Huber
catching this plan sems to be best
which can be adopted.
All Pitchers to Work
The question of who will be used
at pitch is still further ~gyp in the air
The probability is that the coach will
use as many of his twirlers as possi-
ble. Parks, Scheidler, and Kimball
will all be given a chance. It will
be a big surprise if Glenn Is used be-
cause,, in spite of the fact that the
last year's captain showed some won-
derful form in Saturday's practice
game, there is always present that
danger of injury to his arm.

CORPS

Michigan had one of the most suc-
cessful baseball seasons in her his-
tory last year. After many years' ab-
sence from the conference, Michigan
returned with a championship nine.
The baseball season afforded a means
of regaining the prestige lost in the
West by the previous disastrous foot-
ball season.
The team's pre-season games with
the Columbus American Association
team, played during the spring vaca-
tion, assured a strong team. Team-
work was lacking at this early period,
but soon was developed. Earlier games
against Case and Reserve were little
more than farces. Michigan complete-
ly outclassed her opponents and had
little trouble.in reaching the opposing
pitchers.

Sophomore Girls Take Gym Honors
The sophomore girls won the gym-
nasium trophy by defeating the fresh-
men, 75 to 61, in the annual contest.
This contest consisted of two parts:
the apparatus meet which was held
last week, and the demonstration held
Thursday afternoon, for' the entertain-
ment of the Schoolmasters' conven-
tion. Although the freshmen won the
greatest number of points in the dem-
onstration, the sophomores with thei
lead of 20 points from the apparatus
meet, had a larger total and carried
off the honors of the occasion.

Remain Undefeated
As the season progressed and Indi-
ana, Chicago, Ohio State, and Illinois
were defeated, a Conference Cham-
pionship appeared in reality. At this
time an unfortunate disaster happen-
ed to the pitching staff. Captain
Glenn, in the one game which was lost
to Chicago, wrenched his arm. After
this costly accident he never recov-
ered his effectiveness throughout the
season.
Along with the loss of Captain Glenn
came the injury to Ruzicka, in a haz-
ing rush. This completely wrecked
the pitching staff of the team, but
Ruzicka gamely twirled the battle
against Iowa the day after a plaster
cast had been removed from his leg,
and held his opponents to a, few scat-
tered hits. Two days later he again
went into the box, this time against
Illinois, and in three days he pitched
and won two hard games.
Scheidler Defeats Chi
Although Glenn and Ruzicka were
injured and hopes gone, Scheidler
stepped in and defeated Chicago and
Case. On the next he repeated his
performance against Iowa, allowing
only seven hits and two runs. Mraz
and Cooper with their timely hitting
won several games.
With practically the same team on
the field this year Captain Knode has
a good chance t6 head a Michigan
nine to another championship.
TUNNEL PLANNED TO PASS
UNDER ENGLISH CHANNEL
The tunnel under the English chan-
nel will be 32 miles long with more
than 21 miles under sea.
The cost is approximated at $100,-
000,000 and. some say that it may be
completed in five years. This project
if carried through will be the biggest
engineering feat of modern times ex-
cepting the Panama canal, At present
plans call for two tunnels, each 18 feet
in diamater and connected at inter-
vals of 200 feet. A crust of chalk 100
feet deep will cover the undersea
highway, which is believed will make
it secure from submarine attacks. The
only question in doubt at present over
Its satisfactory completion is whether
or hot the chalk will be impervious
to the water.
IPlace OrdersI

One Ump Admits
To Err Is human
"Are there not times when you have
rendered a decision and felt certain
that you erred?" Major League Um-
pire Billy Evans says that question
has been asked him a hundred times.
And of course the answer is yes.
The average person would expect
an umpire to change the verdict if he
thought it was wrong, but looking
into the matter a little deeper one
can easily see that it would be the
height of folly to retreat after once
giving his decision.
DecisionA Must Hold
If he wavered once under pressure
brought to bear upon him by the play-
ers, his value as an umpire would de-
crease considerably because the men
coucerned in the decision would ever
after that dispute his authority in the
hope that he would repeat his former
vacilaton.
But there are one or two rules the
violation of which most umpires over-
look. One of these rules is the one
which calls the batter out if he puts
his foot outside the batter's box when
hitting the ball.
Due to the momentum of the swing
the batter is very often carried around
and forced to put one foot outside the
box. Recognizing this fact umpires do
not call a man out unless both 'feet
cross the line while batting,
Old Rule Fails
One case where the batter intention-
ally violates phis rule is when he steps
up nearer the pitcher to hit the ball
before the curve breaks. Some years
ago batsmen invariably tried this when
a spit ball was hurled but becaus um-
pires have been particularly aw e to
this trick it is seldom attempted now.
BOARD ALONE CAN
AWARD RUNNERS
It is not known whether or not spe-
cial medals will be given to the track
men who won the Indoor Conference
track and field meet, according to a
statement by P.. G. Bartleme.
It is a question that can be settled
by action on the part of only one body
at the University, the Board in Con-
trol of Athletics. This need for a spe-
cial award has never before been felt
at Michigan and there is no precedent
by which to proceed. In the presenta-
tion of track letters the showing in
the indoor meets is considered and
made part of the basis for award.
Though It has never been the cus-
tom to award prizes for indoor track
and field work, there has been a
growing sentiment among the student
body that some Indiviual recognition
is due the athletes who have so sig-
nally placed Michigan ipon the ath-
letic map and in the Conference.
It seems that this system might be
waived in order to honor in some
manner the men who took points in
the big indoor meet that was
held at Evanston, March 21 and 2,
Their showing in that meet was lit-
tle short of remarkable, and some-
thing is surely due them..
Other schools have no system of
individual award for especially meri-
torious work in athletics, but this
matter is one that rests with the
school rather than the group. Michi-
gan might take the initiative in this
matter, in view of the peculiar condi-
tions of athletics here.

The Faculty of the Law School of the University of Michigan
has arranged a special course for the Summer Session of 1919 and
the first semester of the year 1919-1920, in which course the stu-
dent is allowed to carry an amount of work slightly in excess qf
the normal amount and thus gain the equivalent of a yea of
gredit. The saving of time for students who may be discharged,
from the army or navy before June 23 will thus be considerable
and of great importance in aiding them to secure early admis-
sion to the bar. The course will include all subjects of the reg-
lar curriculum and will be given in the regular way by the Law
School taff, -.
Students desiring to take advantage of this course must pre-
sent official evidence of their military or naval service,
For particulars address the Dean of the University of Michi-
gan Law School, Ann Arbor, Michigan.
