~:cI ra I v. U l!Next


Candidates for the Varsity tennis'
team have been engaged in an elimin-
ation round robin play-off and several
matches had gotten under way when
all play was halted by the unexpect-
ed snow last Monday.
Play will be resumed as soon as
weather permits.
"Chuck" Merkel, ranking number
one on the Wolverine squad last sea-;
son went through the season as the
mainstay on Michigan's team and end-'
ed the season by capturing the Con-
ference singles title. The absence
of Merkel leaves a big hole to be
filled and the coaches are grooming
Captain Rorich for the job. This will
be Rorich's second season as captain
of the Varsity squad.'
A trip to Blooihington on April 19
for a tilt with the University of In-
diana net squad will comprise the
spring training trip. In previous
years the tennis men have had a 'trip
throughout the midde-west and into
the East but this year the itinerary
has been confined to the Hoosier
Among those who have had the op-
portunity to show their stuff and
who show promise of developing into
Varsity players, are Brick, Walbridge,
Hodgeman, Crane, Vose, and Segal.
These men,. with Captain Rorich, the
only veteran letter-man, form th*
nucleus around whom the squad will1
be built.
Jerome an aMa man of last year
has been declared ineligible and his
loss is a severe blow to, the hopes of
the coaches. Ames, another man who
showed promise last year, is also ineli-

St. Louis, Mo., April 1.-A tempor-
ary injunction preventing the St. Louis
Browns from excluding the St. Louis
Cardinals from the use of Sportsman's
park "s a ball ground was returned
by Circuit Judge Frey here today.
Issuance of the injunction will as-
sure the Cardinals a place to play in
St. Louis until the permanent hearing
is held. It directs the land owners,!
to refrain from closing the Cardinals'
leasehold, as had been requested by
the Browns because of an overdue
payment of rent.
According totthe Cardinal's owner,
Sam. Broaden, the failure to pay was
merely an oversight. He testified that
there was no other place in St. Louis,
where they might play, and that for-
feiture of the lease would mean dis-
aster for the Cardinals.
It is said the Browns started theE
action against the Cardinals because
of the latter team's objection to pro-
posedd improvements at the ball

versities, colleges and high schools.

Orlando, Fla., April 1.-More light
was cast on the Chance case today.
Lou Barbour, road secretary of the
White Sox, received a telegram from
Chance in which he stated he would
not join the club in Cattanooga on
Friday as scheduled. He said he ex-
pected to take charge "after the club
reaches Chicago" but he did not set
a definite date.
The Chance case has been consider-
able of a mystery to the Sox followers
this spring. First he was to come to
Winter Haven. Then it was said he
would get there when the visit was
half over. Johnny Evers had infor-
mation that he would be in Jackson-
ville, and then Evers said he knew
all along that Chance was going to
Chattanooga, but concealed the know-
ledge for the best interests of the
Now comes a telegram saying he
will get to Chicago at a date not
specified. The players are very much
mystified and so are the newspaper
men who are trying to keep pace with
the variously mentioned travels of
the Peerless Leader. Possibly he will
not leave that dear old California at
all. The suspicion grows.
John Evers continues in nominal
charge of the club, although he has
not been vested with the authority of
manager. He is dragging through the
south two carloads of baseball per-
sons, many of whom are not major
leaguers. He has not been asked to
suggest releases, so far as is known,
and the extent of his duties is limited
by directing the players what to do
on the ball field.

tain three young pitchers, Roettger,
Pipgrass, and Gaston. Earl Combs,
the $50,000 outfielder obtained from
Louisville, will also be on the roster
when the season starts. Walie
Schang has apparently broken a rib,
which will keep him on the bench for
some time.

From the home plate to the center

the distance is 436 feet. The center
field fence is 30 feet high. The allj

Ty Cobb is greatly relieved to findk
tha~t Emory Rigney's injury' is not
serious. Two new men, Burke and j
Wingo have earned a place on the De-
troit roster. Burke is an infielder :
who will be used as utility man. Win-

Two problems confront the Wash-

The five veterans of the mound corps,
Johnson, Russell. Mogridge, Zachary,'

49 games won to 48 lost last year,
which is not such an enviable one.
Johnny Evers continues to hold the
reins of the Chicago team. The most
salient point in the pre-season work
of th hose, is the showing of Bib
Falk as a portside pitcher. He was a
hurler when in the university and a
good one, but not until this spring
have the pale stockinged lads felt the
necessity of working Bib in on the{
However Evers persuaded the little
outfielder-hurler that he should takeK
atry on the hill, and his showing has
been the sensation of the camp.
The recovery of George Sisler still
holds the center of the stage with the
St. Louis fans, as their hopes depend
a great deal on whether or not their
new manager will be able to holdR
down his old p)lace at first base.
Four classy boys are trying for the
third base job. Ellerbe, Rice, Robert-
son, and Simon have shown an equal
amount of ability.j
