Keeping of Official 7iaseball RecordsI
for wiig Ten Advocated IBy Iowa Mtan

By Vance Melree
(In the Daily Iowan)
At present along with the arguments
for and against summer baseball
there is one phase of college baseball
in which a little agitation to a more
easily realized end might be men-
tioned. It is in the keeping of official
averages for all members of the Big
Ten baseball teams.
As it stands there are no official
scorekeepers for any of the universi-
ties and no method of arranging the
aggregate official averages of all of
the players for publication. To have
an official scorer in each university
town, who will make out the individ-
ual records of all players; would
create a more popular interest in the
Who's Who of college baseball.
The only way for the players at
Iowa to ascertain what averages they

hold in their hitting and fielding is
for them to figure it out for themselves
from a scorebook made out by a more
or less incompetent scorer.
Such an official average for the
Big Ten would enable the fans to get
a line on the players, their university
positions, and hitting and fielding abil-
ity. In other words, it would give
an estimate on who are the Babe
Ruths, Walter Johnsons, and George
Sislers among the hitters, pitchers,
and fielders in the conference. Besides
it would stimulate a keener interest on
the part of the players to lead the list
and let them know how their work
~ I

compares with other teams' members.
It would put the game on a broader
basis whereas it is mostly on a local'
plane under the present system as far1
as averages are concerned.
The system could easily be arrang-
ed. Have each athletic director ap-
point an official scorer for his respec--
tive university, and who will act in
that capacity for each game played at
that place. He will make out each
man's average and send in his report
at intervals of two weeks throughout
the season. The reports could well be
sent to a representative newspaper
such as the Chicago Tribune, which
has shown more attention to college]
athletics than any other in the Middle

West. The paper would arra
averages and likewise be glad
for the added interest it wil
its readers. Each local scores
send the box averages of eac:
ing team playing at his statio:
visiting university's represent
allow each to keep a complete
of all the games played by the
at home or away.
The idea of official avera

there is no better time than

Tryouts For Golf
Team Called Out
Michigan's informal four mangolf-
team will, swing into the first inter-
collegiate action in many years,, with
the exception of the Conference meet
last fall, when the walkers of the
long, long trail hie to Evanston onj
May 14 to do battle with Northwest-
ern. Way back in the dim and dis-
tant year of 1905 the Wolverine golf-
ers met Chicago, b'ut since that time
the sport, intercollegiately speaking,
has been dormant. This spring will
see a big awakening, the Purple event
being the first of a trio which have
been arranged.
Ohio State sends its aggregation
here on May 21 for the second en-
counter, Nnd on June 6 the Michigan
squad will take on Chicago over the
home course. In the fall the Confer-
ence -meet will again take up the
Wolverine golfer's attention.
Last autumn William Ingham, '21,
and Allen L. Welch, '22E, journeyed
to Chicago for ,the Big Ten matches.
The admission of outside schools at
that time resulted in victory for Drake
university, Michigan taking fifth place.
Tryouts for the team will take place
sometime within the next two weeks,
and in the meantime the Intramural.
office requests that all men desiring to
make the team hand in their namhes.
All prospective candidates must have
signified their intention of trying out
by Friday of this week, and it is hoped
that a goodly number of golf stick-
wielders will have signed up with the
coming of that day. Men may tele-
phone their names to the office, 2268.
TENNIS MATCHES
GET GOOD START
Tennis is coming into its usual pro-
minent place among the activities of
the Intramural department. The All-
campus tournament is getting under
way in good shape and many close
matches are being played each after-
noon on the courts at Ferry field. A
match consists of two out of three
sets of singles being won by a contest-
