However it is still early in the sea-I
son, and .the men wlil probably im-
prove as soon as the weather warms
up, according to the coach.
Gilbert, football star, who reported
last year but was forced to quit the;
squad because of illness, has again
returned for the baseball season, and
is expected to lmake a strong bid forl
a Varsityposition. Gilbert is rated
as a strong hitter, Coach Fisher said,,
and although he did not show excep-
tionally well in the infield last year,
he is expected to prove a good manI
in the outfield.

"Wahoo' Snin Crawford
Former Tiger star is now coaching
the University of Southern California
baseball team. He is shown instruct-
ing the players in batting.
Crawford was once a co-star of
Ty Cobb. He excelled as a slugger
and fielder, he and Cobb making up
'one of the best outfield combinations
ever seen in baseball when they play-
ed on the Detroit team.

philadelphia Nationals who will make
his debut as a big league manager!
this season, is working with a squad
which includes only two real stars inI
preparation for the* opening of the
big league season on April 12. F
The only men on the Philadelphia
squad besides Stuffy are Harold Carl-
son, pitcher, and Jimmy Wilson,
catcher. Old Cy Williams would have
ranked with these two a season or
two ago but he has passed the peak
of his ability..
McInnis has two capable outfield-
ers in Mokan and Leach. but they

Thompson, a . second baseman who
shows promise, and two veteran pitch-
ers, Jack Scott and Alex Ferguson.
Friberg is a good infielder, but a weak
hitter, and Attreau, a first baseman,
looks like a coming star.
- McInnis' greatest task seems to be
that of developing a capable pitch-
ing staff, as the present corps lacks
experienced hurlers with the excep-
tion ot-Carlson, Scott, and Ferguson.
