SECOND BASE, RIGHT FIELD AND
PITCHERS STILL
DOUBTFUL
Competition on the Varsity squad
for the 15 places that will be open
for the Southern trip has narrowed
the field down until now only second
base, right field, and one or two
pitching positions are in question. In.
all probability Coach Pratt will car-
ry a regular nine, four extra hurlers,
an extra catcher, and a utility player.
iAt shortstop Capt. Pete Van Boven
has his position cinched, and Uteritz
is apparently the coach's choice for a
third sacker. Vick has 'the{ first callt
for the regular receiver, while Coates
will probably be the alternate.
Through his recent heavy hitting,
Johnson has been playing first regu-
larly, and Shackleford has been shift-
ed to right field, where he is compet-
ing with Roby fpr a berth. The other
two garden positions, center and
right field, are being held down by
Perrin and Genebach, respectively.
The development of Klein in the
past few practices has caused him to
be placed at second, and unless Kar-
pus' stick work improves, the basket-
ball captain may find himself dispo0-
ed. For pitchers Pratt is depending
upon Ruzicka to show his 1918 form
and carry the nine through the sea-
son. Considerable stuff is being shown
by Liverance, however, who comes
close behind the veteran. DPion and
' Schultz are likely candidates for the
Southern trip, and Mudd and Torrey
will fight it out for the other berth.
For a utility player the coach will
take some man who .can play in the
infield and outfield. Karpus, Hickey,
and Klein are all possibilities. With
Shackleford in thle outfield he will
have a man who can be shifted to first
in case of injury to Johnson, and any
one of the infielders or utility men
could handle practically either of the
th'ee positions.
Practice contests between the Var-
sity and Yannigans are being held
daily with heavy hitting by both sides
being the feature. In yesterday's duel
some pretty fielding plays were exe-
cuted by the regulars, and the steady
improvement of team play by the Var-
sity indicates that the Wolverines will
be in the race for their fourth con-
secutive Conference championship:

(By Frank McPike)
Coaching a team, which four weeksj
from the end of the season is a hope-
less tail-ender in a Big Ten basket-
ball race, is a thankless task at best
and one which any man might be ex-:
pected to disclaim. Taking that same'
team and converting it into a power-
ful fighting aggregation which is able
to win eight straight games againstt
the hardest kind of opposition andf
climb to a triple tie for the champion-
ship of the West in four short weeks,
is an achievement which borders onf
the unbelievable and lends some color
to Mr. Aesops' justly celebrated yarns.
It was just such a performance which
placed E. J. Mather, coach of the Var-i
sity basketball team, familiarly known
to his men as the "Skipper", squarely
in the public gaze during the last few
weeks and firmly fixed him in the fav-
or of Michigan athletic followers.
'Here Since 1919 t
Coming to the University in the fall
of 1919, Mather found Michigan ath-
letics in general and basketball in
particular in a disorganized condition<
following the general disorder of the
war period. The basketball team
faced its third season of Conference
competition with only two or three
veterans on hand as a nucleus for a
championship squad. The Skipper,
called is men before the football sea-f
son was closed that year and devel-
oped them into a team which won ar
fair proportion of its games and fin-,
ished in about the middle of the Big
Ten standings. All of this time he
was watching the All-fresh five close-
ly and his work with the yearlings
brought to the Varsity this year such
men as Miller, Whitlock, and Cappon.
Ineligibility Hits Hard
At the beginning of last season in-
eligibility dealt 'the basketball pros-
pects a blow in one or two places and
the team could not seem to get start-
ed, losing games to teams it defeated
with ease later in the season. After
the fourth successive loss to a Con-
ference quintet Mather had on his
hands a broken, spiritless squad, one
which seemed destined for the sub-
cellar in the campaign. Things began
to move after that, Mather sent Dunne

COACH MATHER
to center in the Iowa game and in-
jected the fight necessary to win the
first game of the year. He shifted
Rea, a fair forward, to the running
guard post and there the captain-
elect played a game which placed him
among the three best in thesConfer-,
ence. This transformation resulted in
the showing of the team which caused
Mather to be dubbed by critics, "the
Miracle man of the 1921 season".
M iather All-around Athlete
Although Mather's specialty is bas-
ketball his attention has not been cen-
tered in the court game alone as he
starred in four major sports during
his college career. At Lake Forest
college, where he graduated in 1912, he
captained the football, baseball, bas-
ketball and track teams during his
senior year. In addition to his success-
ful work with the basketball team here
he coaches the All-fresh football team
and in two seasons has had teams
which have given Yost's Varsity stiff-
er competitign than some of the small
