TEXAS PLAYER COMMENTS
PRE-SEASON- WORK IN
OTHER SPORTS'

ON

Fort Worth, Tex., May 26.-Down
in what high salaried stars of the maj-
or baseball leagues term "the bushes,"
a discarded big leaguer is making such
a valiant effort to prove that ball play-
ers do come back, that he is giving
Babe Ruth and George Kelly a real
race for national home run hitting
honors.
Clarence Kraft, first baseman of the
Fort Worth club of the Texas league,
is the player who is trying to drive
his way back to the major leagues via
the home run route. On April 28 he
smashed out his seventh homer of the
season-four days before Kelly made
his seventh and before Ruth had
-knocked out his sixth. -
FaJls as Big Leaguer
Kraft was tried out by the Boston
and Brooklyn national league clubs
in 1914; and sent to Newark. Even
there he was not 'considered good
enough.-to stick. But now, in the Tex-
as league, this "discard" has made up
his mind to get back in the majors and
bids fair to literally smash his way
into another tryout.
Overtraining, which may prove
dangerous before the season closes,'
faces the baseball player who on,-
ters ineb some other sport between
seasons, according to Kra.
The home run hitter pho played'
basketball eardy i his diamond ca-
reer, warned beginners against over-
training.
"A ball player who engages in oth-
er sports between seasons i's as liable
to overtrain much the same as a prize
fighter and he will suffer the same ef-
fect," Kraft said. "A little basketball'
playing, or some other exercise ig good
to work off surplus ish and put a
baseball player into condition just be-
fore the opening of the spring train-
ing season, but it should not be over-
done.

Crnikshank Reports

w

Cruikshank, star broad jumper and
hurler of thd Wolverine team, put in
his first appearance of the week yes-
terday, and he engaged in a light
workout. He reported himself in fine
condition, but Steve would let him
take only an easy drill, as he is
counting on Cruik for points in the
Big Ten meet. His leg is in better
shape than for some time this sea-
son.
Improvement in - the weight squad
has been noted by the coach in the
last few days. Steady work has im-
proved Stipe in -the hammer,, and if
his good form continues, he will be
a contender in the hammer throw.
Schmidt, a first year man on the
squad, has also been coming to the
front in te hammer throw, and with
a little more experience, -he will be
a valuable man to the team. In re-
cent wborkouts ha has tossed the
heavyweight as far as 118 feet, and he
appears capable of going beyond this

The Independent team of the Fresh-
Medic league won the championship
with five games to its, credit and no
defeats. The Nu Sigma Na finished
second with only one defeat and that
at the hands of the league leaders.
Wimbles' junior lits won- 4n easy
game from the freshman lits Wednes-
day afternoon on south Ferry field
by a 5-0 score. Kresge pitched well
for the winners and was never in
danger. Extra base hits were re-
sponsible for the five scores the up-
perclassmen accumulated.
Director Mitchell announces " that1
all "M" men -who are seniors in the
University are eligible for member-
ship in the "M" club. jThis member-.
ship entitles the wearer to admit-
tance to all athletic contests played
at the University and it is desired
that all who are eligible for mem-
bership join at once. Application may
be made at the Intramural office. The
membership now numbers 500, em-
bracing a good number of names well
known in Michigan's athletic his-'
tory.

UNGE RULES FOR
P TENNIS CONTESTS

,E ' Sprinters Work fard ,
After having suffered a slump in the1
past month, Van Orden has gradual-
ly - been coming out of it. If his re-
cent heaves are any indication of
what he will do in Conference com-
petition, it is certain that Van will
garner a point or two for the Maize
and Blue a week from Saturday, with
a possibility of his threatening the:
marks.. of such premier putters as
Sandefer of Kansas, Shaw of Notre
Dame, Dale of Nebraska, and Weiss
of Illinois. These are practically the
only men who seem capable of go-
ing beyond what Van is doing at
present, and he may surprise a few
of these oldtimers.
The sprinters ,were practically the
only men who worked hard yesterday.
Simmons, Losch, and Swift received
special attention from the coach, who
is hoping that these men will come
through in great style next week.

Baseball players should not play a
oomplpte series of basketball games,
or follow his summer's work with some
other sports throughout the winter
season, The effect will be felt during
the progress of the next baseball sea-
son, for the player's muscles will be so
overdeveloped that they will begin to
lose their force and his playing will
suffer as a result,"
Started in 1914
Kraft first began his professional
baseball career with the Boston and
,Brooklyn teams of the National league
in 1914. He was "farmed out" to the
Newark club of the International
league and remained witli that team
until 1916, when he went to the Louis-
ville and Milwaukee clubs of the Am-
erican association. In 191? he came
to Fart Worth and has played here
since.
It was in 1914 and 1915 that Kraft
was .active in basketball. He played
on a Y, M C. A. team at Evansville,
Ind., and coached a high school Steamn
while there. Later he played semi-
professional basketball in Michigan.

Players club will be held between 9

plication for membership should pre-
sent themselves at this time. -

SAfter playing strong games in the"
first few days of the meet, all the Am-
erican golfers who went to England
to take part in the struggle for the
British amateur golf championship
have been eiminated. Although the.
course at Hoylake is a. difficult one,
the Americans started out in such a
way that many Englishmen did not
hesitate to say that one of them would
be the winner. In the last few days,
however, they slumped, Francis Oui-
met and Chick Evans going down to
defeat on the same -day. Then Bobby
Jones, ,he boy wonder, met defeat,
leaving but one Yankee, F. J. Wright.
Yesterday he drew Bernard Darwin,
an Englishman, who won his match'
