tinue to hit the bail as they have the
past week there will be no stopping
them. The Giants have also been
"louting the pill regularly with the-
aid of Kelly's four homers. The addi-
tion of Maranville to the Pirates has
greatly strengthened that team.
Pitchers Not in Shape
Few pitchers have rounded into form
as the large number of home runs will
show. When the warm weather comes
these will 'take a sudden drop. The
first no hit game of' the season was
recorded Friday when Biemillei,
pitching for Jersey City in the Inter-
national league shut out Buffalo with-
out hits or runs.
The following is the standing of
the major league clubs exclusive of

VAN.
IN

ORDEN, MICHIGAN'S BEST BET1
THE SHOT PUT.

Farrell .Pleased
With Van Orden
William J. (Yarnie) VanOrden, '23,
is a football and track star. He en-
tered the University in the fall of 1919
and at once tried oumt for freshman
football. He landed a position in the
line among a large field, of candidates.
In the spring semester he worjced out
with the freshman track squad and
specialized in the shot put.
Last fall he was a member of the
Varsity footb'ill squad and was award-
ed his "M." He plays in the line at
either guard. His workmin the Illin-
ois game on Ferry field last fall was
especially commendable.
Early in February he began work
indoors with the track team and is
now the best of Coach Farrell's shot
putters. He won an easy first in the
Cornell meet and at the indoor Con-
ference carried off second honors
against the best .weight men in thes
west CoachFarrel is much pleased
with the showing that Yarnie has made
this season, and he believes that with
more experience he will develop into
one of the foremost weight men in
America.
VanOrden is a resident of Ann Ar-
bor. With two more years in which
to be a-member of Michigan teams he
should be a big factor in the athletic
history of Michigan before he is
awarded his sheepskin and takes up
4 the weights of business.

The coming week will, in all likeli-l
hood, see 'more men participating in
organized athletics than ever before
in the history of the University. Be-
side the men out foI Varsity baseball,
track, tennis, and spiig football there'
are large freshman baseball and track
squads, working daily. Moreover, the,
intramural department is running a
fraternity indoor league with a large
entry list and two! tennis tourna-
ments. As if there were not enough
activity on Ferry field, the workmen
are going to : contribute their share'
by laboring on the new stands.
The Conference opener with Purdue
yesterday was not a particualrly star-
tling exhibition, but it showed that the
Wolverines will have to be taken itto
consideration in reckoning the Con-
ference championship,
Shackleford's shoe-string catch. in
the third inning with the bases full
was one of the best bits of fielding
seen on Ferry field this year. It pre-
vented one and possibly two runs at
a critical time.

Two snappy double plays starting
around the second sack and ending at
frst featured the play of the Wolver-
ine infield. Van Boven and Uteritz
promise to be a fast combination
around the keystone sack and should
work as well together as did Mike
Knode and Pete last year.
Stanwood, the Purdue left fielder,
robbed Karpus of a sure double in the
sixth by a remarkable circus catch.
It looktd as if Ernie Vick got his
signals mixed in the seventh when
Geneback started from first as if on a
hit and run signal while the big catch-
er stood passively at the plate. Genie
was 'easily retired at second.

Tris Speaker Favors Coliege Pitchers
"My reason for showing more con-
sideration to college players, and par-
ticularly pitchers, is that practically
all the colleges have good coaches,
former big or minor leaguers," said
Tris Speaker of the Cleveland Indians
in a recent interview. "As a result
of their college training," Manager
Speaker said, "they come to you with
a pretty good pitching knowledge."
His partiality is shown by the fact
that he now has 10 former college
players on his squad, and there are
indications that he will add more be-
I fore the season is over.- II

"Babe" Ruth is well on his way to-t
ward a new world's record for homeE
runs, already having four circuit
clouts to his credit. This is far ahead
of his last year's schedule, as he did
not make his fourth homer last springr
until late in May. George Kelly of<
the New York Giants has also made
four homers, and his supporters are
claiming that he wil give "Babe" a1
merry chase for the title- of Home
Run King. Two other players have
made three home runs so far - Meu-
sel of Philadelphia and Elmer Smith
of Cleveland.
' American Race Close
In the American league a fast raceI
has already developed between NewI
York, Cleveland, and Washington with
New York a half game in the lead. De-
troit under the leadetship of Ty CobbI
is not doing so well. Lack of enough.)
work is one of the reasons for this
as several of her games have been I
postponed because of rain. Cobb's.
pitchers have not yet hit their stride,
but it is hoped that a little work will
soon round them into form.
Pittsburgh is away to a fast start in
the National league and is already a
full game ahead of the Giants, who are

Iowa displayed steady, machine-
like baseball in defeating Northwest-
ern Wednesday by a 9 to 0 score. Fair
pitching backed by goad fielding and

Purple contributed to the onesided
