arsity Loses All Games But Derli es
God Practice in Fielding '
and Batting'
Michigan's Varsity basebatl trip tu
olumbus during the last week was
n undoubted success.
Although the Wolverine men did not
'in a ingle game out of the five
layed, the main object of the trip, se-
uring of a beneficial practice for the
ten to start the season was accom-
Wonderful weather favored the men
'orn the first Saturday to Thursday,
hen a heavy rain made a game im-
ossible. Every day except Sunday the
[ichigan team lined up against the
rofessionals, suffering successive and
ecisive defeats, but at the same time
aining valuable knowledge of the
ame which could not be obtained in
mnateur playing.'
Tuesday Is Michigan's hest Day
Only once, on Tuesday, did it appear
lat the college men were going to
lip over a victory. This game'was
arted with Glenn in the box. He"
'as in excellent shape and pitched
erfect game, but because it was fear-
I that he might throw his arm out
y too much exertion he was replaced
y .Parks, who pitched four innings.
he score at the beginning of the
eventh inning was 5-2 with every-
Aing pointing to a conclusion of the
ame favorable to Michigan. Crockett
ien was put in the box, and in spite
f his good work, the support he re-
eived was poor and the Columbus
am managed to tie the score, 5-5;
uring this inning. The single run
hich the Wolverines made in the
ighth established only a temporary
ad because the professional men put
cross two runs, one in the last part
f the eighth and one in the ninth.

Knode, the little Michigan captain,
was the man who caused the big sen-
sation on the trip. His work was
unanimously conceded to be the best
which the Wolverines displayed. Joe
Tinker, manager and owner of the
Columbus American association teams
and an old teammate of Coach Lund-
gren, when both played in the world
series, complimented the coach on his
second baseman, this being the posi-
tion at which Knode is used this year.
Manager Tinker also showed a great
deal of interest in the rest of the team
kawd on Friday talked to the infielders
and gave them some valuable hints as
to where their weaknesses lay. Tinker
was a shortstop in his Major league
days and has always be'en noted as an
authority in that (leIpartment of the
Fielding Worst Weakness .
The fielding was the greatest weak-
ness which the team displayed. There
is no doubt but what the Michigan
men could have put up more competi-
tion if their pitchers had received bet-
ter support.
The infield which the coach used in
most of the games consisted of: Hu-
her or Schluntz, catcher; Froemke,
first base: Knode, second base; Van
Boven. shortstop; Karpus or Garrett,
third base. Adams, star first base-
man, was unable to go on the trip and
Bowerman was used in his stead, but
he was put in the outfield and replac-
ed by Froemke. Huber was -struck in
the elbow Saturday and was unable to
throw in regular form, he and Schluntz
alternately took the position behind
the bat. Garrett injured his leg April
8, while sliding, and was brought
back to Ann Arbor.
Cooper, Pheney, Bowerman and
Parks was the garden combination
most used by Coach Lundgren.
Scheidler, Parks, Glenn, Crockett
and Kicball were all used on the
mound. Parks and Glenn surpassed
all expectations by their performance,
Scheidler kept up the same form he
was in before he left, Crockett allow-
ing only two runs in 10 innings did

In preparation for the Conference
outdoor meet, Pat Smithfi Michigan's
star weight man, has been heaving the
javelin as well as the shot for the past
ten days. His ability in this branch of
the track and field sport indicates like-
ly points in more than one of the
weight events. The outdoor air seem-
ed to have a good effect on his shot
putting as he has done exceptional
SNork with. the lead ball the last few
I days.
Sedgwick and Bouma have trained
over the mile and two mile distances
every day and are in good form in
spite of the inclement weather that
has made running impossible at times,,
and at no times enjoyable in the long
-runs. Bouma is looking good to the
track mentor and if he continues at
his present gait will take points in tIhe
Inile at Chicago.

and able to give any opposing team a
real fight. It is practically the same
four that gave the fast Chicago men
a scare at the indoor Conference meet
the last of March. Better things are
expected on the outdoor track because
of the additional practice since that
meet. The same four has not started
in any two meets thus far this year,
and the experience of running togeth-
er may have beneficial results.
Carl Johnson and Losca were the
two swriters to be selected for the
trip. Johnson was an assured factor,
but the excellent runnin g of the little
sophomore was a surprise, inasmuch
as he defeated several men with more
experience. He has done remarkably
well this year and on.his present form
has a great future ahead on the Maize

All freshmen who desire to try out
for their class team should report to
Coach Mitchell at 3 o'clock Tuesday
afternoon, on Ferry field.
This is the first call and it is very
important that all men who are in-
terested come out at once. There is
a need for a team to play the Varsity
in the daily games, and to get a line on
the Varsity material for next year.
Men coming out must bring their own
equipment in the way of gloves, suits
and shoes.
Nothing is known of the baseball
ability of the men in the first year
class, with two or three exceptions.
Ingalls and Parks are reported
pitchers of worth. The formner played
with Colgate last yeaz and Parks is a
brother of the Varsity heaver. Vick,

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 of
the normaj amount and thus gain the equivalent of a year of
credit. 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-
ular curriculum and will be given in the regular way by the Law
School Staff.
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.
