Drills For Two Groups
Of Infielders
Infield drills given to two sets of
infielders was the feature of the base-
ball practice held yesterday afternoon
at the field house. While Coach lott
superintended the infield drill, Coach
Fisher gave -his attention to batting
The first group of infielders to take
the field consisted of Parker at third,
Weitzel at shortstop, Skidmore at sec-
ond, and .Fuller at first base. The
drill consisted of the usual fielding of
ground balls and was marked by a
display of pre-season ehthusiasm.
Skidmore, a sophomore whose foot-
ball career was cut short by a broken
leg, appears to be above the average
of the other aspirants for second base,
and though the season is still early
he handles ground hit ball accurately.
The second infield consisted of Kub-
icek at third, Giles at shortstop, Ne-
ville at second, and Captain Wilson at
first. Giles, a regular last season
is assisting in coaching the infield
this year and filled in at shortstop
yesterday because a number of the
other candidates were unable to prac-
tice because of examinations.
Captain Wilson appears to be in his
best form at the initial cushion and
barring injury should be a factor in
steadying the other inexperienced in-

Greenleaf To
Give Exhibition
Here Saturday
Ralph Greenleaf, world's undefeated
billiard champion from 1919 to 1925,
will appear in two exhibitions at 3
and at ; o'clock, Saturday at the
The. former champion will give an
exhibition of fancy shots and difficult
strokes, accompanied by an explana-
tion of the method of execution, as
a lesson for the many who will turn
out for the exhibition.
Since his entrance into billiard
championship circles several years
ago, Greenleaf has made a succession
of brilliant triumphs, establishing sev-
eral high run records both in exhibi-
tion and championship matches.
Greenleaf, who reigns as monarch of
the billiard game, has made runs of
sixty and seventy in the last few
weeks against players of note. In a
recent match with Charles Harmon,
eastern states champion, he ran a
cluster of 127 balls. Greenleaf de-
feated Harmon 1500 to 1107.
Although not fully recovered from a
nervous breakdown which he suffered
last winter, Greenleaf concluded his
schedule in the championship league
by defeating Frank TabPerski, national-
ly known cue artist, in six straight
contests. The grand totals for the
matches showed Greenleaf 600 and
