t And Hubbard Equal World's
Marks In Dash And


Improvement In Other Clubs
Threatens Giants' Supremacy



?'Xichan's 'track squad ended its
indor season last Saturday night in
the most dstentatious manner possible
"when it downed Jack Moakley's Cor-
nell team 67-28, taking ten out of
11 of the first places.,
One of the brightest sots of the
entire trip to Ithaca was the recept-
Ion hbich the team received at the
tinds of Cornell. From the time the
tean arrived until the train pulled out
on the return trip to Ann Arbor the
&ciuad was given every consideration.
Cars were waiting at the station

By its performance in the Cornell
meet Michigan established its repu-
tatio as one of the strongest tirak
combinations in the country. Al-
though the distance run records made
were not'especially good the other
marks were all indicative of high class
performances. Especially was this
true of the dash, the hurdles, the pole
vault, the high jump, and the shot
put. Two world's records were tied
in the dash and hrdles while a meet
record was tied in the hurdles, and
new records for the meet were es-
tablished in the high jump and the
pole vault.
Led Wittman ran the 75 y dash
in 3-5, tying the imiet 'ieoid e -

his reputation when he took the 75

Fisher Makes Changes In Routine
Work And- Drills -Nen On I
Short Pokes3
Coach Fisher made a change in his
daily program yesterday and gave his
candidates an extensive drill in sev-
eral fundamental aspects of the game.'
The pitching staff was drilled in
handling bunts and getting a snappy
throw to first after fielding the ball.
The twirlers were also given some
work in covering first base when the.
first sacker fielded the ball. Both
these details play an important part in
the team play of the diamond nine
and Coach Fisher plans on continuing
this work until perfection is reached.
The batters were given their initial
work in laying down bunts and plac-I
ing them for successful sacrifice hit-
ting. Regular batting practice was
also held.
Although the cold weather hasl
shown no signs of letting up, Coach
Fisher plans on sending his out-
fielders outdoors before this week is
up. The men have had no work in
shagging flies thus far, spending each
afternoon in hitting. The outdoor
workouts will be short, lasting aboutl
a half hour.
Regular infield practice is still on
the daily schedule but as yet none of
the new men have broken into prom-.
inence because of their handling of
the ball.
Eight pitchers will be carried on
the roster of the New York Yankees
according to the present plans of the
Bush, Hoyt, Shawkey, Pennock,
Jones, Pipgrass, Gaston, and Roett-
ger make up the corps upon which
theGotham fans will place their hop-
es of another pennant for the Yanks.
The firstfive are veterans, while the
other three are newcomers :to the
American League. Roettger saw ser-
vice with the 'team in a few games
last season, but Pipgrass and Gaston
reported for the first time this spring.
Eight members of the track team
have signed a petition asking that
Earl M. Schwemm, '24 be allowed to
continue as manager of the team.
The trouble came as a consequence
of the disbarment 'from activities of
16 members of Theta Nu Epsilon, sec-
ret polWial fraternity.
