Joseph L. Baker, '20E, Michigan's
star weight performer, sarted his
career with the iron ball while in the
sixth grade of grammar school. "My.
older brother," said .Baker, "would
give me a stone and a thirty foot
handicap and beat me in throwing
the 12 pound shot. He taught me thel
correct position and soon I became
quite adept at throwing the stone.
Naturally when I entered El Paso
high school in Illinois I -specialized in
the weights when track season roll-
ed around. It was not long until I
was able to heave the 12 pound shot
over 40 feet."
Alwayis Won Points"
Baker three titres attended Coach
Alonzo Stagg's Interscholastic C et
at the Maroon school, and never did
he fail to score at least one point. In
fact, there is no meet in which the
tall weight man has participated that
he has not captured at least one
counter. At the Minnesota interechol-
astic, Baker rung up two new rec-
ords in the shot put and in the dis-
cus throw. The latter he heaved a
distance of 123 1-2 'feet, and as yet,
none of the Minnesota aspirants have
succeeded in surpassing this excel-
lent heave. While in the El Paso
high school Baker enjoyed four years
of competition in track during which
time he won the Illinois interscholas-
tic for four years in succession and
hung up records at Lake Forest col-
lege which still stand.
Two years ago Baker put the shot
for Michigan at the Illinois intercol-
legiate and gained a fourth place.
Since this time he ha been one of
Coach Steve Farrell's regular men
and a sure point winner. Baker's abil-
ity to throw the 16 pound ball is due
to his constant practice and not to
any inherent capacity, as he is really
too light for .this event. His weight
is peculiarly adapted to the 12 pound
shot and he does his best work with
this weight.
'Three 'Parts to Heave
! "I divide my throw," said Baker,
"into three parts. First the balancing
in the back of the ring and this must
be done with extreme care or the ef-
fecttveness ,of the second part of the
throw will be' entirely -lost. The body
is in a slightly -crouched position and
the ball rests in the hollow of the
shoulder just below the. ear. The left
arm is extended at a forty degree
angle and acts as a guide for the shot
to follow, as the ball if properly
thrown, will, leave the hand at a forty
degree angle. The second division of
the throw is the hop. The hop is ex-
ecuted with the right foot at the same
time kicking out with the left leg.
Third, is the shift and it is here that

the novice falls down and spoils what
otherwise would be *n extremely good
put. The shift must be complete and
the body should extend out over the
circle as far as it is possible and still
retain balance. A close adherence to
;his method of throwing the iron bal
and conistant practice is all I have to
thank for my ability 1o heave the
shot."
At present Baker heaves the discus
around 135 feet and the shot about 42
feet. It is expected, however, that he
will be able to materially improve his
throwing when outdoor practice be-
comes possible. Baker furrnishes an
excellent example of what can be ac-
complished by practice, which is con-
stant, and adherance to one inethod of
procedure after it has been proven 'to
be the right one.

Buenos Aire", Mar. 13.-The value
