Control as Batters Get
Needed Workouts.
Continuing the policy of letting
the batters get accustomed again
to taking cuts at the ball, Coach
Ray Fisher sent his large squad of
diamond candidates through an-
other practice session yesterday at
Yost Field house, in the batting
Although the pitchers have not
really begun to bear down yet in
an attempt to fool the hitters, sev-
eral of the hurlers yesterday were
tossing some pretty fair curves in
the direction of the plate. The bat-
ting has picked up somewhat from
the showing made the first few
Daniels Still Missing.
Norm Daniels continues to be the
only member of the regulars squad
who has not yet donned his base-
ball uniform. Probably he will re-
port for work next week, after a
brief rest from the close of the
Conference basketball season.
Tompkins, Hu d s on, Braendle,
Butler and several other of the
,men yesterday comprised the con-
tingent that was taking cuts at the
offerings of various members of the
mound corps.rAlthough most of
these men were hitting the ball
hard in the batting cages, just what
they will do when they get out into
the natural light of Ferry Field re-
mains to be seen. Such a difference
exists between the light of the two
places that a man who ordinarily
turns out to be a slugger in the
field house may be just ordinary
when he starts batting outdoors,
or vice versa.
To nprove Conditions.
In an effort to get conditions in-
doors a little more like those out-
side, it is likely that Coach Fisher
will have backgrounds of green
cloth put up behind the pitchers
to aid the batters in seeing the ball
against the background of seats in,
the field house.
The swimming pool in the
Intramural building will be
available only to Conference
swimmers March 13 and 14.

Coach Cliff Keen's Squad Starts
Drive for Titles at
Chicago Tourney.
Late yesterday afternoon Coach
Cliff Keen entrained for Chicago
with his squad of eight wrestlers to
take part in the annual Western
Conference meet to .be held in the
Windy City tonight and tomorrow
night. Both coach and the men
were in the best of spirits when
they left Ann Arbor for they feel
that their chances to take a couple
or more of the individual belts are
as good as any team in the Big
Ten this year.
The annual meet which for some
peculiar reason is not held to de-
cide the championship of the Con-
ference, will consist of the individ-
ual grapplers of the Big Ten squads
coming to grips to decide the
crowns of the various divisions. It
has a bearing on the final chamn-
pionship of the Conferenc, in that
the team collecting the greatest
number of individual titles adds to
its standing in the general chai-
pionship race as alreadymade in
the dual meet competition.
Dougovito Favored.
Michiganhopes to do as well this
year as they did last when they
brought home four crowns. The best
chances this year are in the 118,
126, 135, and 165-pound classes with
Sigward, Otto, Woodard, and Doug-
ovito entered respectively. The lat-
ter is practically conceded his
match for the title, while Sigwart
and Otto stand better chances in
their weights than does Woodard,
who will have to take the measure
of the man who beat him last year,
