Indiana's star heavyweights, Wilson

the best men in their weights in the
Conference and Wilson held the 175
pound Big Ten title in 1925, while
Fisher recently sprang into promin-

When the New York Yankees go to
camp during the first week in March,
they may or may not have the servicesI
of the notorious Babe Ruth in the
outfield, but that does not mean that
the outer garden will be populated
with men of mediocre ability.
With such men as Earl Combs, who
promises to be one of the outfielding'
stars of the game before he is through,
and Bob Meusel, hard hitting and hard
throwing teammate, Miller Huggins
need not worry.1
Combs came to New York during the
1921 season, after hiving established
a reputation as a hitter, fielder, end
thrower, while playing with Louisville!
of the - American Association. As ev-
idence of the ability of Combs, it can
be said that he was with a minor
league team only two seasons, in 1921
and 1922 never batting less than .335.
In 192& he was inserted in the Yan-
kee lineup as soon as he reported, and
proceeded to set the league on fire
until he was stopped by a broken leg,
which he acquired by sliding into
home plate during a game vith De-
It was not until last year that he
finally regained the form of his early
days, but during the past season he
made pitchers fear and respect him.
Meusel is a brother of Emil Meusel,
recently released by the New York
Giants, and the two together hold the
distinction ofbeing the first set of
brothers to ever appear in a World's
Meusel has long been noted for his
batting prowess, and it has been said
by exTerts that he owns the strongest
throwing arm in baseball. This must
be true, for he holds the record for
