BALL WAITS
FOR OUTDOOR WORK
Infield Practice Started by Coach
Pratt; New Men Have Chance to
WIn Varsity Jobs
OTHER CONFERENCE NINES ARE
DEVELOPING NEW TEAMS
With only a month left before its
southern invasion, Michigan's diamond
squad is forced to confine all practice
to the gymnasium. Competition for
Varsity positions is keeping up inter-
est and making the entire squad
hustle. For the past few days Coach
Pratt has given his men infield prac-
tice while the batters have taken their
turn with the stick.
Catchers Look Good
On the receiving end of the team,
Vick, Coates, Robey and McPike have
been used. Robey's work in particular
has attracted favorable comment, as
the big fellow handles himself well
and has been meeting the ball with
deadly accuracy in batting. If Robey
continues to set his present pace the
other receivers will be pushed hard to
cinch a place behind the bat. How-
ever, a string of first class catchers
will greatly aid the Wolverine machine
for last year it was lack of men to
use behind the bat which threatened
to upset Michigan's hopes. Ernie Vick
is aggressive, and his experience on
the freshman squad in 1919 demon-
strated that he is a receiver of high-
est order. Coates, another aggressive
candidate, is doing good work.
On first base Johnson, Broome 'and
Schakleford have been performing
well. Johnson is a left hander and
appears to be a strong contender for
the initial sack. Broome was with
the squad last year as an understudy
of Newell. Schakleford has had ex-
perience on first base and plays this
position well. A'choice between these
men seems to be a toss up, and their
performance on the diamond together
with their ability to connect with the
ball will probably decide the first base
riddle.
Keystone Sack to Fill
On the keystone sack Hickey and
Middleditch have been used for in-
door practice. Both of these men ex-
hibited speed around the bag and will
put up a fight for the job. Pete Van
Boven, at shortstop, appears to be a
fixture for Van Boven's two years
Varsity experience gives him first call.
At third, Artie Hoffman is filling the
vacancy in a satisfactory manner. In
fact Hoffman appears to be one of the
speediest and surest fielders on the
floor.
Opponents Lose Men
Other Conference teams have suffer-
ed the same loss of players as have
the Wolverines. Last year witnessed
the passing of some of the best play-
ers the Big Ten has had. Kime, the
southpaw pitching ace of Ohio State,
is no longer with the Buckeyes. Ham-
ilton, of Iowa, one of the most highly
rated western pitchers, has graduated.
Ryan, leader of the Illinois boxmen
last year, is among the absentees.
Knode, for three years the backbone
of Michgan's infield, will no longer
be in a college uniform. Hinkle, Mar-
oon pitcher, has joined the ranks of
coaches. To develop players to equal
these former stars will be the task of
the Big Ten coaches.

INTERCLASS TRACK MEET
TO BE HELD SATURDAY
NEW SYSTEM OF AWARDS WILL
BE USED IN GIVING OUT
NUMERALSI
Entries for the interclass track
meet which will be held in Waterman
gymnasium Saturday afternoon, March
12, have not been coming in at the
desired speed according to Elmer D.
Mitchell, director of- intramural ath-
letics. Opportunity to sign the entry
sheet will be given until March 11, the
day before the meet. A sheet will be
placed on the Varsity bulletin board

in Waterman gymnasium under track
notices, and prospective entrants will
be able to sign here as well as in the
Intramural office, room 3 Press build-
ing.
It has been decided to run off the
following events: 50 yard dash, 65
yard high and low hurdles with 15
yards before the first hurdle in each
event, 440 yard dash, half mile, mile,
pole vault, high jump, shot put, and'
a relay in which each member of a
team will run two laps. One man may
enter no more than three events and
the points in the events will be award-
ed as follows: First place five points,
second three, third two, and fourth
one. A man must win at least two
points to be awarded numerals. A
new departure in the method of mak-

ing numeral awards will be tried
this year. In the past freshmen have
been granted their numerals after
working against the Varsity in both
outdoor and indoor season, they'
have not been forced to go in to actual
competition for these awards. This
year, however, freshmen who make at
least two points in the interclass'com-,
petition will be given track shirts with
a blue stripe around the chest upon
which will be placed the blue numer-'
als of Michigan All-fresh teams. Mem-
bers of other classes who win numer-
als will be given the usual white ones
on the blue stripe.
Winners of the M or AMA in track
are not eligible for this meet as well
as the men who are picked as regulars
on the Varsity track squad by Coach

Steve Farrell. Steve will allow c
tain members of his squad to comp
in this meet and the names of th:
men will be posted by the entry sh
in the gymnasium.

"-Makes Jack a Dull Boy?"
Jack and Tom and Harry get
to be very dull chaps, indeed, if
they believe in all work and no
play.
Men who want to keep their
minds keen and their wits
sharp, know that they must play
to keep fit for the terrific strain
of modern life.
If your "prof" is wise he will
heartily approve of your play-
ing an occasional game of bil-
liards. Come in tonight-get a
good cue in your hands again-
and see how soon your former
skill comes back to you.
