CAPTAIN PARKS' RETURN WILL
STRENGTHEN MOUND CORPS
Hanging of the baseball cage will
begin Monday or Tuesday in order
that the indoor baseball &Tactice may
commence about Feb. 15, by which
time Coach Pratt expects most of his
men to have finished with their ex-
aminations. Until that time, how-
ever, there will be no activity on the
part of the pastimers.
Coach Pratt, as yet, has made no
official call for candidates, but he
has expressed the desire that every-
one interested insbaseball turn out
when his call does come. The first
few weeks in the gymnasium will be
devoted mainly to limbering up, and
it is thought that little real work can
be accomplished between 1 and 3
o'clock, the hours allotted to the base-
ball nine for daily drill. Until late
in March it is improbable that the
men will be able to get outdoors, but
Coach Pratt intends to take his men
out as soon as it is feasible, for he is
confronted by one of the stiffest sched-
ules that Michigan has ever faced.
Face Stiff Schedule
Nineteen difficult games,12 in the
Conference, will be played by the
Wolverines in addition -to the seven
on the Southern trip which begins
April. 8. These contests coming so
soon after Coach Pratt has taken his
men outdoors will be exceptionally
hard ones, as the Southern aggrega-
tions will have the benefit of consid-
Capt. Slicker Parks has returned
to school and intends to take up his
work in the University next semester..
The return of this pitcher, considered
to be the best in collegiate circles to-
day, is sufficient to- place Michigan
among the championship contenders.
In addition to this wonderful hurler,
Pratt will have Ed. Ruzicka, veteran
of two years, O'Hara, an "M" man,
and Mudd and Torrey, freshman slab
artists, around whom to build a for-
midable pitching staff besides numer-
ous other promising candidates.
Catchers Are Numerous
Genebach, last year's receiver, is
back, but he will have stiff competi-
tion from Vick, Robie, and Coates,
none of whom has yet been in a po-
sition to tryout for the catching
staff. Shackleford and Broome are
likely looking first basemen, and there
are three letter men back for the
other infield positions. Pete Van
Boven, Mraz, and Karpus have all had
previous experience on the Varsity,
and there are other excellent men
who will try for positions. Uteritz
was one of the best infielders on the
freshman squad, and Lundgren con-
sidered him one of his best prospects.
Turnbull is also a good man, and
Wimbles, Hickey, and Jack Dunn will
provide competition for the other can-
Eligibility Worries Coach
For the outfield there will be excel-
lent players trying out, pre-eminent
of whom is Jack Perrin, a veteran
from last year's championship nine.
The question ofeligibility is the great-
est one confronting Coach Pratt at
present, but if his men pull through
the finals satisfactorily, he should be
able to produce a nine which will
make a hard fight for its fourth con-
secutive Conference title.

RECORD OF MeAC FIVE
ASSURES BITTER GAE
TEAM WHICH MEETS VARSITY
SATURDAY HOLDS WIN FROM
M. A. C.'s basketball quintet, which
will appear Saturday night in Water-
man gymnasium, will afford the Wol-
verines the stiffest sort of oppositon
according to current reports. The
latest achievement of the Aggie five
is a 37 to 25 defeat of Notre Dame
which was administered Wednesday
night at East Lansing.
Gilkey, the M. A. C. left forward,
made 21 points against Notre Dame,
making 9 foul shots out of 10 at-
tempts besides 6 baskets from the
field. Heasley, the other forward, and
Higbie, the center, also did consider-
able scoring, the former making 3
and the latter 4 field goals.
Varsity in Condition
The Varsity is expected to be in
good shape for the contest. Sufficient
time, has elapsed for the men to re-
cover from the strain of the trip'
last week-end and light practices have
kept them in fighting trim. Coach
Mather will probably use the same
combination that proved so effective
against Chicago and Purdue. Cap-
tain Karpus and Miller or Whitlock
are almost certain to be the choice for
forwards, Duke Dunne for center, and'
Williams and Rea guards.
Tickets for the M. A. C. game will
be distributed from 9:30 o'clock on
in University hall 'today as long as'
the pasteboards last. Students can
secure tickets by bringing their ath-

Varsity News Squad Considered One of
Fastest in Detroit Ice
RYE AND KERR AVAILABLE
FOR SECOND SEMESTER PLAY
When the Michigan informal hockey
team meets the Varsity News. sextet
of Detroit, at 6:30 o'clock tonight at
the Coliseum, it will have as opposi-
tion one of the strongest in the De-
troit-Windsor IH'ckey association. At
present holding third place in the
league, this team has slayed a fast,
finished brand of hockey all season
and should force the Maize and Blue
to the utmost.
Strenuous practice during the last
two days has served to round the
Wolverine squad into the best shapeit
has enjoyed this season and leads fol-
lowers of the team to predict another
win for the Michigan team. It is prob-
able that the same lineup that played
the Michigan College of Mines games
will begin the game tonight. That is,
Comb in the net, MacDuff and Kahn
defense, Barkell at center, Cannon at
left wing and Hosking and Follis alt-
ernating at right wing.
Two additions to the present team
are possible in the persons of Kerr,
at present ineligible, and Harold Rye,
star end on the 1919 Varsity football
team. Rye plans to return to school
at the beginning of the new semester
and is working out with the team now.
He is a star goal tender, having play
ed this position with the Sault Ste.
Marie team of the American Amateur
Hockey association, the leading league
in United States hockey circles. It is
planned to use Rye at the right wing
position, for a time at least, as he has
showed up well at this post. Kerr is
expected to be eligible at the begin-
ning of next semester and will be
available for the Wisconsin games at
Madison, Feb. 18 and 19. The addi-
tion of this man will give the team the
strongest forward line that it has had
at any time this season.
