BATTING PRACTICE
TESTS.PASTIMERS
Hitting Drill Calls on Varsity Hurlers
and Receivers To Do Extra
Duty'
PRATT MAKES FIRST CUT IN
DIAMOND SQUAD; 50 SURVIVE
Batting practice for the last two
days has given the Varsity baseball
candidates a chance to test out their
hitting eye and is calling on the
pitchers and catchers for extra duty.
Coach Pratt has a large number of
battery 'men, and all of them arebe-
ing pressed into service. No curves
are being thrown as the moundsmen
are not yet ready to turn lose their
foolers upon the hopeful Ruths. Each
pitcher is used for a short time dur-
ing the afternoon while the receivers
are also rotated.
Coach Pratt is highly pleased by
the manner in which the players are
rounding into form and says that his
prospects for a good infield and out-
field now are good. Enough veterans
remain among the battery men to
make the nucleus of a strong staff.
Ernie Vick, one of the most promising
catchers Michigan has had for some
time, is now working with the squad
and together with Coates and Roby,
the Wolverine nine should be well
fortified in the catching department.
Captain Parks and Ed Ruzicka are
veteran 'pitchers with two years' Var-
sity experience. Working with these
men are some mighty promising1
hurlers from last year's yearling nine.
Mudd, Leverence, Schultz, and Torrey
are developing rapidly while Dicker-
son who has been out of the Univer-
sity since pre-war days is again en-1
rolled and exhibits all the qualities
of a man of Varsity calibre. Although
the staff looks strong, the Wolverines
will have a tough schedule this year,
one that is probably the most difficult
in the Big Ten, and in order to repeat
her victories of past years Michigan
will need a number of dependable box-
men.
With the opening of batting prac-
tice the Michigan mentor has been
able to get a better line on his men and
to size them up. With the large turn-
out for Varsity berths, batting will be
an important factor in deciding upon
the men who will make the nine. The
first cut of 21 men was announced to-
day, but there are still more than 50
men on the chart. By the end of this
week the gymnasium will be marked
off into a diamond and real baseball
attempted despite the handicap of the
short distance between bases.
BOWLING NOTICE
Men desiring to enter the All-
campusdbowling tourney should
sign up at the Union alleys' desk
before next Tuesday.

make the trip to Urbana -and

Wesbrook, Stipe, Walker, Cruik-

TRACKSQUAD0L1A9S
TODAY FOR ILLINOIS
MICHIGAN ENTERS TWO TEAMS IN
RELAY CARNIVAL
EVENTS
Coach Farrell and 15 members of
his track squad leave for Urbana this
afternoon to compete in the Illinois
Relay carnival. The team, which is
made up of Captain Butler, Burkhold-
er, Burns, Douglas, Thomas, Wetzel,
Wheeler, Wesbrook, Crukshank, Sar-
gent, Stipe, Losch, Simmons, Kelly,
and Walker, embarks on the 1:23 for
Chicago, where it will arrive at 7:40
o'clock to change for a train to Ur-
bana. The men will arrive at Illi-
nois about midnight. Manager Fisch-
er is accompanying the team.
While the chief events of the car-
nival , are the relays, the individual
events will be the center of equal in-
terest. The greatest individual stars
in the middle west and central part
of the country are entered in the spe-
cial races, and Michigan's eight en-
trants will stack up against the best
that there is. The Varsity dash team
is entered en masse and Steve will be
given the opportunity to see what his
men can do on the cinders, as the en-
tire meet will be conducted on the
dirt. Losch, Kelly, Simmons in the
dashes, Cruikshank and Sargent in
the hurdles, Wesbrook in the pole
vault, Cruikshank and Wesbrook in
the broad jump, Stipe in the shot put,
and Walker in the high jump con-
stitute Michigan's entries in the in-
dividual events.
For the relays, which will number
five or six, Coach Farrell is entering
only two teams, in the mile and two
mile. The former team is composed
of Butler, Wetzel, Wheeler, and Thom-
as. In the latter, which will follow
the first an hour or so later, But-
ler will run again, Burkholder, Burns,
and Douglas being the other three.
Preliminary heats and drawings for
places in the relays and several of
the special events will be run off Sat-
urday afternoon.
Two members of The Daily sport
staff will accompany the track team
to Urbana for the Carnival and wil
stay over for the Illinois-Michigan
basketball game Monday night. The
Daily will receive special reports on
both of these events.

Conference Basketball Fives Enter
Last Lap Of Race For Court Title

Conference basketball fives that
have completely upset all dope in the
Big Ten title race will go into action
this week. Beginning the final lap of
a season which has developed no out-
standing leader, Indiana met Purdue
at Bloomington last week in a game
which meant elimination of one from
title aspirations.
On Saturday Michigan meets Ohio
State at Columbus, Iowa plays Purdue
at LaFayette, Minnesota at Wisconsin,
and Illinois battles the crippled Mar-
oons at Bartlett gym. If the teams
play true to form, Michigan should be
returned winner over O. S. U., but
in this year of ups and downs in the
race, anything is likely to happen..
However, the greatly improved and
fighting Wolverine machine can be
counted upon to put up a fight at
Columbus to avenge the early defeat
administered by the Buckeyes.
Ohio Out of Race
Ohio is entirely out of the race with
two wins and eight defeats, but the
close margin by which Illinois was
able to trim the Scarlet and Gray five
indicates that it has improved. The
Michigan team after its bad start has
been playing in whirlwind fashion, and

Pageless Maroon quintet. The last'
year's champions have displayed a
total lack of the skill which they dis-
played under the tutelage of Pat Page.
Winters without the services of Carney
has put out a team which tops the list.
To retain its lead Illinois must take4
the remaining contests.
Iowa Starts Slow
At Iowa, Jimmie Ashmore has a
team which was slow to start but one
which has lately won from the best
teams. Two wins over Indiana and
one over the Boilermakers at Iowa
City make the Hawkeyes formidable
opponents for Purdue next Saturday.
The game should be close and unless
White and Miller, the Purdue guards,
can stop Ashmore's forwards the Old
Gold and Black is doomed to defeat.
COPULOS -TAYLOR
MATCH TONIGHT
Followers of the three cushion bil-
liard game are assured of a high class
exhibition when George Copulos of
Detroit and Al Taylor, Union profes-
sional, meet at 3 o'clock this after-
noon and again at 8 o'clock tonight at

ago and at that time gave such an un-
usual exhibition that his return has
been especially pleasing to men who
saw him play at that time.
Taylor has been devoting the ma-
jor portion of his practice to the
three cushion game for the past sev-
eral weeks in preparation for this
match and right now is at 'the top of
his game. No admission will be
charged for either of these matches.

out of six Conference battles. Shouldr
Michigan win at Columbus and Pur-:
due defeat Indiana the Wolverines
will be in a position to finish in a tie
for first place by winning the last
game at Urbana with Illinois.
Illinois should experience little j
trouble in downing the crippled and

large exhibition table being used for
the match.
Copulos has made an enviable repu-

present is regarded by experts as one
of the three or four foremost round
