New Men Show Ability in Cage;
Batting Form Promises
Offensive Strength.
Widness Marks Early Hurling
Efforts of Rookies; Old
men Look Well.
Lack of experienced hurlers seems
to be the chief difficulty confront-
ing Coach Ray Fisher, of Michi-
gan's Western Conference champ-
ionsip baseball team, in the daily
practice' sessions in the Yost "Field
house cage.
While most of the pitchers that
have turned out for the team have
a nice assortment of wares, their
main fault lies in their inability t1
control their offerings, with the. re-
sult that unless someone with con-
trol can be found to aid the one or
two mainstays ,upon which Coach
Fisher is counting, the team will be
be at a distinct disadvantage.
Emphasis on Pitchers
Coach Fishers attention from
16w on will be devoted chiefly to
helping the hurlers in their quest
to locate the plate. It appears at
the present that the batters will
be abo'ut on a par with those of
other years, several promising new-
cognes who can hit having been
found to aid the holdovers fromlast
year's nine, Straub, Myron, and
Until approximately May ,l, when
the tea'm will first go out on the
Ferry field diamond, no real line
can be drawn on either the pitch-
ers or the batters, as hitting or
pitching in the field house is a
far different thing than it is out of
Several sophomores have shown
'an ability to bat that makes thei
favorites in the chase to wi one
of the five vacant Varsity berths.
Jack Tompkins, who guarded the
nets for Coach Eddie Lowrey's Con-
ference hockey champions this win-
ter, is slated to play the outfield
when he is not toiling on the
mound, his batting strength mak-
ing a valuable, man to keep in ac-
tive service all of the time.
Must Work for Berth.
Roy Hudson, who was a member
of both the football and baseball
squads, has a good chance of win-
ning the regular first base berth, al-
tholgh he will not get the assign-
ment without working for it as the
competition promises'to be keen.
If Coach Fisher sticks to his de-
cision not to take the team outside
before the first of the month, the
Wolverines will only get a few days
of practice on the diamond before
the' schedule is slated to get under
way on April 12, when the Michi."
gan team begins its southern trip
by meeting Cincinnati at the Ohio
Diver city. From that time on the
games will follow each other in
rapid succession, that if the Wol-
verine mentor hopes to get his temne
tised to playing outside after its
several weeks in the field house he
will have to work fast wh'en the
time comes. Twenty-eight games
have been scheduled for the season
by the Wolverines.

Foul May Give Illini FEATURE
Tie With Badgers for IN V
Indoor Cinder CrownI
Uncertainty still hangs over the
winner' of the Conference indoor
track title after a report which
stated that a foul committed by a
Wisconsin runner might drop the
Badgers into a tie with Illinois for
first place.s
During the mile relay at thej
tournament in the Minnesota field;
house one judge detected a Wiscon-
sin man using unfair tactics on az
turn, but failed to report the oc-!
curance until the referee was on
his way to Des Moines, Iowa. An
official account of the matter was!
sent to the referee, but until his
decision is' made known action can
be' taken.
If. he decides to disqualify the
Badgers in this race Illinois willj
come up from fourth to third in it1
and add a point to its total, while
Wisconsin will lose two points,4
making' them tie at 19, the lowest
winning total ever recorded in this
Michigan took fourth place inI
the Indoor meet with a score of 12
1-4 points. Eddie Tolan copped
second in the 60-yard dash, run-i
ning second to George Simpson of!
Ohio State. Another second was
registered by Brooks, giant Wolver-!
ine shot-putter, with Behr of W'is-
consin safely lodged in first place.
In the mile relay Michigan ac-I
counted for another second place
with the Seymour twins, Mosser,
and Russell forming the quartet.
Russell again helped his team to
fourth place by garnering a fourth
in the 440. Felker, lanky Michigan
high lumper, and Pottle in the pole
vault tied for third and fourth in;

grand total to 12 1-4.

but will drive them hard in order
