Senator Iepper
Rumors persist that Sen. George Wharton Pepper, Republican of
Pennsylvania will be asked to succeed Ban B. Johnsov, who is now on
"leave of absence," as president of the .American League.
Senator Pepper has been closely associated with baseball before, the
most notable instance being when he acted as counsel for organized base-
ball in its bitter legal fight against the Federal league in 1914-15. He
has many strong supporters among the American League magnates.

cated Saturday.
Michigan's track team will b much
stronger in the outdoor meet than it
will he in the indoor championship,
mainly because the Wolverines pos-
sess strength in manyrevents which
are not listed on the program of the!
meet at Evanston. Captain Northrop
of Michigan is almost a certain win-
ner in the broad jump and javelin,j
and with his pole vault work, he is
counted on for more than 10 points.
The indoor meet does not include the
low hurdles, broad jump, and javelin,!
and the distances in the dashes and
hurdle events are shorter than those
at the Illinoi lr.elays.1
Iichiga-n Strong In Spirit
In the 50 yard dash, Michigan has
all excellent opportunity to get a lead
on the other schools, having Hester
and Lasser entered. Hester is gen-
erally considered the favorite, because
of his ability to get off for a fast start.
He ran the 75 yard 'dash in the Illi-
nois relays in 7 4-5 seconds in a pre-
liminary heat, but got off to a bad
start in the semi-final heat, losing
two yards at the jump when he slip-_
ped. Lasser also made his way to the
semi-finals, but lost out in the samef
heat with Hester.
Kriss of Ohio State is Hester's fore-
most rival for first place in the dash.
O'Shield's of Minnesota, Pepper of
Indiana, Grim of Ohio State, and
Beatty of Iova all have shown well
this season, and complete the field in
this event. Cuhel, the all-round track
star of the Iowa teaz1, will be a
dangerous man in the dash, if he is
entered. However, it is hardly likely

Rue and McElwee entered. Kennedy,
Ohio State's great miler, will be a fit
opponent for the fleet Illini runners,
and, considering past performances,
he has an excellent chance to win the
event. Alexander of Indiana,Elliot
of Iowa, and Little of Purdue, are thme
other leading milers of the Confer-
ence. Monroe is Michigan's strong
hope in this event. He is inexperi-
enced, but will be an excellent man
for the future. If Wyckoff of Ohio,
State runs in this event, he is almost
certain to be up among the place
In the two mile run, Zola of Wis-
consin has turned in the best time,
having covered the distance in
9:38 1-5 this season. Hunn, Iowa's
sensational distance runner and cross
country star, has been entered, as has
Wyckoff of Ohio State who is also a
good two miler and likely to place.
lornberger of Michigan is expected
to figure in this race, having shown
well in the recent practices.
The Big Ten indoor record of six
feet four and one-eighth inches for
the high jump, made by Dewey Al-
berts of Illinois in 1921, is almost cer-
tain to be broken. Burg, captain of
the Chicago track team, is capable of
doing 6 feet 5 inches in indoor com-
McGinnis of Wisconsin is Burg's
strongest rival in this event. The
Badger track star is rather eratic
in his jumping, but has proven his
ability in this event by jumping 6 fet
5 3-8 inches.
Other entries who are capable of
(Continued on Page Seven)

will be felt keenly. Davis, a veteran,
has shown good form, and is the lead- I
ing candidate to fill this position. 1
Reichmian and Truskowski, both soph-S-
.mores, are dthers who still have
hopes for' the (atching position. tme
remaining incii being inexperienced.
Ten Pitchers Considered
Out of the 25 pitching candidates,
approximately 10 still have a chance
to make the regul'( team, Coach
Fisher said. Miler and Rietz, both
veterans, will form a nucleus for the
pitching staff. Gawne. another former
Varsity candidate, may gain a place
on the team. Gilmartin, Asbeck,
Lowe, and Stern are the right-hand-
ers who have shown promise. Moffett
and Neiblung are the best southpaws,
although neither 'has been outstamd-
ing. There is a possibility that Fisher,
a Varsity man two years ago will
be eligible for competition this year.
During the daily workouts between
now and the time when the team 'is
able to go outdoors the men will be I
drilled in the fundamentals of the
game, and Coach Fisher will try to
get a line on his men, so that the
final selections will be somewhat de-
termnined before the team works on
the outer diamond.
The Gophers have played a number
of non-Conference teams during the
winter. Notre Dame, 'after defeating
a number of eastern and mid-western
teams, had a difficult time in subdu-
ing the Minnesota puckmen.
Chances for Michigan to defeat the
Gophers have been enhanced by the
showing made in the last series of
games against Wisconsin.
