GAME TO BE HELMDPILOTS
ON HURON DIAMOND

SENATORS

Wolves Will Attempt Revenge
for Defeat of Early
Spring Season.
The Michigan Varsity baseball I
squad went through the final prac- i
tice session yesterday before facing
the Michigan State Normal College
aggregation there this afternoon.
The last meeting of the two teams
resulted in a victory for the Hurons
but the Maize and Blue nine has
turned in a much better quality of
ball since that time.
The Normal team is exceptional-
ly strong this year, having among
their victims Michigan, Iowa, and
Michigan State and some other col-
leges of lesser strength, however
they dropped two games to the
strong Luther College team last
week-end and are probably primed
for revenge, hoping to whip the
Wolverines again.
In their final practice the team
batted for about an hour against
the offerings o f left-handers, as
Coach Ray Fisher expects to face
port-side hurling in the next two
games, the Normal game and the
Purdue game. In addition to this
a five inning game was played with
the freshmen in which the Varsity
hit at will the offerings of the year-
ling hurlers.
Coach Fisher expects to work
Harley McNeal, Lefty McKay, and
Jack Tompkins tomorrow in the
box in order not t4 tire any of them
out too much for the two Confer-
cnce games which are played this
week-end with Purdue and Illinois
on the foreign diamonds. The out-
field will see the only changes in
the lineup when Fisher will start
Braendle, Petoskey, and Ferguson
in the garden because of the left
handed pitcher which the Wolves
will face.
In the practice session yesterday
afternoon the team played flawless
ball behind the hurling of Chuck
Menefee, the sophomore hurler from
Ann Arbor. Jack Tompkins poled
out several long hits as did Norm
Daniels and Ken Manuel. Perhaps
the most brilliant plays of the aft-
ernoon were two fast double-plays
from Waterbor to Daniels to Man-
uel which were executed with exact
precision catching the runner both
times by several feet. Despite the
fact that Jack Tompkins and Art
Superko both have injured legs
they are expected to be able to play
in tomorrow's game.
The game will be played on the
field at Ypsilanti at 3:30.
Ohio State Stars Get
Wet Jobs in Initiation
Ohio State athletes have to work
hard. We find that Wonsowitz, star
pole vaulter, and Lew Iinchman,
ace halfback, have been placed on
new jobs. Wonsowitz waters flower
pots, and Hinchman sees that he
keeps the plants wet.
Don't worry, folks, it's just initia-
tion for Bucket and Dipper, Ohio
State University honorary frater-
nity.

TRACKMEN DEFEND
TITLE THIS WEEK
Will Go to Evanston This Friday
for Conference Contests;
Concede Chance.
With the dual meet season at an
end Coach Charlie Hoyt and his
Wolverine thinclads are now direct-
ing their efforts towards the de-
fense of their title at the ,Big Ten
championships this Friday ana Sat-
urday at Evanston. Experts pre-
dict that the battle for the cham-
pionship will be anybody's race with
Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Illi-
nois struggling for the honors.
Split in Dual Meets.
Michigan brought their dual
schedule to a close last Saturday at
Columbus, with the Buckeyes ad-
ministering the defeat. This gives
Michigan a split on the results with
one chalked up on each side of the
ledger. The credit entry was scored
over Illinois.
One advantage which tlhe Maize
and Blue hold over the other com-
petitors is their team strength.
Michigan has a better balanced
squad than their rivals can boast,
which should prove a great aid in
bringing in third and fourth place
points.
Results at Ohio showed that
Michigan will have to be content
with a probable third and fourth in
the hurdles, and a third or fourth
in the 100 and 220 yard dashes.
Bennett of Ohio served notice that
he is out for a first in the century
and a top place in the 220, with his
team mate, Fazekas, bidding for
further honors in these events.

the cinder squad piled up a safe
lead. In addition, they brought in
firsts in the low hurdles, the cen-
tury, and the high jump.
Pantlind ran the high hurdles in
the exceptional time of 15.1 sec-

low hurdles. Jennette also turned
in a creditable performance by
clearing the bar at 12 feet, 6 inches

To date, the freshman aggrega-
