Training Trip Friday

Clear skies and balmy temperature
permitted Coach Ray L. Fisher's ball:
tossers to take their first outdoor
-workout in ten days yesterday after-
noon on south Ferry field. Only two
more opportunities will be given thet
squad to practice before entraining
for the southern training trip Fri-
day.
Coach Fisher was still reticent yes-
terday on the make-up of the squad
of 15 players to be taken south-
ward. He is decided upon two-thirds
of the men, but the remainder will
not be definitely known to him until
after Thursday's drill.
Three Pitchers Selected
Asbeck, veteran of last year's
team-, McAfee and Holtzman are well
assured to find themselves in the
squad's pullman when it leaves here
Friday. Kelliher and Reichman will
be the two receivers to accompany
the team into Dixie. Capt. ,Loos,
Oosterbaan, Morse, and" Wientraub
are the infielders that are assured to
be taken on the trip, while Corriden
end Neblung are two outfielders who
undoubtedly will be selected byl
Fisher.
While there is little known of the
teams to be met on the training tour
through the 'cotton belt, it is an as-
sured matter that no easy task
awaits the Wolverine team imemdi-
ately upon its return from the trip.
The schedule of the Va]ze'-and Blue
diamond performers for the week fol-
lowing the spring vacation calls for
games with Northwestern, Purdue,'
Iowa, and Illinois, all to be played
here.
Purple Loom As Threat
Northwestern, Michigan's opponent,
in the season opener on April 16,
will present an array of players that
should test the strength of the Wol-
verine nine, which at present ap-
pears as if it will go far In the Con-
ference race. '
Palmer, whose superb pitching in
the first game against the Wol-
verines, stopped the Michigan bat-
ters and gave Northwestern an easy
game, is on this year's Wildcat
squad and is expected to pitch in the
ganre inaugurating - the local season.
Besides Palmer, Coach Maury Kent

the team is not as well represented

INDOOR TRACK SEASON FEATURED

About a week or so ago the same
Charlie Paddock who ran on the
American Olympic team in 19201
established a new world record for
the 140 yard dash. At about that
tim'e the same old Charlie Chaplin
who played in "Easy Street" well be-
fore 1920 returned to his same old
tricks and established a new world
record in the backward high jump
with two. footballs under each arm.
All of which nonsense is simply
to show that for some reason or
other it is still considered impor-
tara. for somebody to go out and
excehl t-ie existing best performances
-even if it has to be in the 526 yard
walk or in the 23 yard low-high
hurdles. '
. Some Bxillifnt Perform an ces
Disregarding events of such type,
however, there were some really
brilliant track and field efforts dur-
ing the indoor season just closed.
Outstanding were those of Sabin.
Carr of Yale and Lloyd Hahn of the
Boston A. A. Carr vaulted an inch
more than 14 feet-UP, and Hahn
ran the half mile in only a. split-

second more than 1:51-FAST! .'
Those two pcir ormances alone 'it
would have stamped the recent in- s
door campaign as more than a dull wi
one, for flying over a 14 foot highw
pole and around a ball' mulelng
track are certainly rarities. e
Carr's 14 feet 1 inch eclipsed his wit
own previous indoor mark of slightly ing
less than four inches less established tes
not so long ago, but Hahn's 1:51 3-5 Tw
shades a mark that had been set Ga.
way, way back in 1904 by Parsons wit
of Yale. 11.
Parsons' time had withstood all the
indoor assaults of such runners as
Meredith and only slightly lesser
lights. Meredith held the outdoor
mark of 1:53 2-5 until that was
clipped by the German Doctor, Pelt-
zer. But now Hahn's time stands as
better than both the old indoor and
outdoor marks and takes ranks along
with Nurmi's 8:58 in the two mile
and Weismuller's :49, 4-5 in the 100
yard swim among the greatest ath-
letic feats of all time.

CRIB SQUAD RESUME'S
Simultaneous with the return of
spring, the Michigan athletes re-
turned to outdoor practice. Yester-
day saw not only the spring grid-
1er; out on the turf, but also both1
the Varsity and freshman baseball,
leanis as well as many of the
tracimen.
The players were lined up and put
itrough several new passing plays
and other new formations in which
several different passers were tried
out. The kickers also received their ,
share of attention from the coaches
and ol ovided the receivers quite a
workout which was more the result
of the, wind than any special effort
on the' hart of the kickers.
Today's and tomorlow's practices
will bring the opening session to
close until after vacation when the
drill will 1e thrown open to all de-
sirous of trying out for next year's
Varsity. It is then that Cappon will
return to a id' in the instructing, and
the competition for he Chicago
Al-mnae tiophy will really get under
way.

FRESHMAN BALL SOUAD
TO REPORT FOR DRILL
SOON AFTER VACATION
Immediately following the Easter
vacation, Coach Jack Blett intends to
issue a general call for all freshmen
baseball candidates. While the bat-
terymen have been working out for
some time, a lack of spa(c in the field
hioume has prevented Blotfrom ask-
ing all aspirants for the yearling; nine
to report.
Due to the uncertiu weather, little
outdoor work has ' en permissable,
but it is hoped that after the week's
,lay-off that conditions will be more
favorable. Since the pitchers will have
the advantage of an early start, they
should be ready for the assult of the
clubbers in the preliminary batting
drills.
Blott has expresed the opinion that
the hurling staff of this year's squad'
is somewhat above the usual average.
Should the infielders and outfielders
prove to be of equal. caliber, a form-
idable freshmen nine should result.
Illness p.revented Blott from attend-
ing practice yesterday, but he is ex-
pected to be able to attend to his reg-
ular duties for the rest of the week.
WOLVERINE COPETES IN;
PYLE'S MARAT HON RACE
Voigt Houfstater, '21, who starred
as a member of the freshman track
and cross country teams while a stu-
ldent in the University, is participating
in the tran'scontinental marathon ,racc
which is being staged under the direc-
tion of C. C. Pyle. The latest reports
indicate that Houfstater has ad-
vanced from fortieth to sixth place
among the 90 runners.
MADISON-Wisconsin's crews have
begun outdoor practice on Lake Men-
dota after four weeks of indoor work.

SPRING CRID PRACTICE
Coach Bob Zppke Uncovers Seiveral
i {tential Stars For Next
Year's Aggregation
VANUSKUS SHOWS PROMISE
(Special to The Daily)
ClHAM PAIGN, April 3.-With the
football togs snug among the moth-
balls until brought forth by the call
of the gridiron next autumn, Coach
I3ob Zuppke has ferreted out sone
premising candidates for the Univer-
sity of Illinois Varsity.
Fearing overconfidence in the rank
of his championship eleven, the coach
has searched with extra care for po-
tential stars, among those enrolled for
spring practice, which has just ended.
Bicanich, Ambler, Dwyer, Lang-
horst, Huddleston, have been with-
standing backfield onslaughts 'with
greate'st success and will be given
consideration for line jobs. Huddles-
ton supports 260 pounds with no
greatly hampered movement.
Five Ends Piscovered
Five ends who hlave fought their
way tonoticeand seem likely to
develop are Lewis, May, Potter, Trog-
don, and Clements.
Bodman who punts and pas'ses well
and is fast, is among the leading
fullbacks along with Conover, the best
line plunger on the spring squad, and
Robinson.
The halfbacks i'nclude Rowe,. Yanu-
skus, Hall, McCarty, and Clason.
Yaihu'skus couples an ability to run
the ends with a driving attack on the
line and ability to furnish interfer-
ence .for his mates. Rowe weighs
only -153 pounds but has. a twisting,
smashing run.
