Fielders Without Practice As
Baseball Team Stays Indoors
A class of 26 girls has been meeting
every day this week to study under
Miss Alice Mulkey the benefits of a
scout leadership course. Miss Mulkey
is head of the field work in this sec-
tion of the country, and was selected
by national heaaquarters to conduct
the course to be given here in Ann
A general course in scout leader-
ship and captaincy was presented at
the Women's Field House, the first
time such a course has been pre-
sented at the University. It was open
to non-university women, but more
than three-fourths of the women en-
rolled were college students.
Enthusiasm for outdoor sports runs
highest in the spring, the athletic
season which will begin immediately
after vacation. Participants in both
the golf and tennis tournaments are
much more numerous, as all athletic
activities are not cut into by rush-
ing, football week-ends, and the
other diversions of the fall schedule.
Meets Will Be
The fraternity indoor track meet,
the oldest intramural event on the
campus, will be held at 7:30 p.m.
Monday at Yost Field House. The
meet was first held in 1913 at Water-
The independent indoor track meet
will be held at the same time in the
Field House, fraternity and inde-
pendent events being run off alter-
Eighteen teams have entered the
fraternity competition, and a some-
what smaller number the indepen-
dent meet. Theta Xi is the defending
champion, and, with a full team en-
tered, has an excellent chance of re-
peating its victory. Strong opposition,
however, is expected from Alpha
Kappa Lambda, Theta Chi, and Tau
Kappa Epsilon. Coach Charlie Hoyt
The baseball squad is going into
the last week of practice prepara-
tory to leaving on the Eastern train-
ing trip, during spring vacation.
There seems to be little chance for
the team to go outdoors before next
Sunday, the day set for departure.
The Field House, where the ball
players are now carrying on their
conditioning, is not very well suited
for purposes of getting a ball club
in good shape, and so a sad tale un-.
folds itself. The outfielders have had
no fielding practice; in fact they
have forgotten what it feels like to
catch a fly ball.
The infielders have had no in-
field practice, and ground balls are
going to give them quite a battle
once they do get out of the Field
Catchers Lack Practice
The catchers have had no practice
in throwing down to second to nip
a man stealing. They take some
throws in the Field House, but there
is nobody trying to steal. George Ford
broke his ankle last week, and Coach
Ray Fisher is taking no more
chances. If the catchers get into a
ball game without some training
under fire, they are liable to throw
the ball over the centerfield bleach-
ers, if they have such things on the
The pitchers have had plenty of
practice in throwing to batters in the
cages, but it is unlikely that they
will have the advantage of a few
scrub games, before they mount the
firing line out East.
If the Michigan nine meets Col-
gate next Monday, and it hasn't had
any outdoor sessions, some peculiar
fielding antics may be looked for
from the Wolverines. However, Coach
Fisher says in a very determined
manner, "We'll get in a few days on
Ferrry Field before the trip," de-
spite the fact that Ferry Field is now
hiding under several feet of snow
and water. This shows how anxious
Coach Fisher is to get outdoors.
Several of the pitchers have looked
very good. Wistert will be the big
gun of the hurling corps, with Patch-
in and Tillotson probably following
him in that order. Wilson and Fish
probably will see action, as will Set-.
tle,, a southpaw, who had the batters
blinking yesterday with a fine fast
will referee the meets.
