er session,
ited yester-'
ing of men

decided to hold practical periods at
3:16 o'clock every Monday, Wednes-
day, and Friday, with a lecture hour
at the same time on Tuesday and
Thursday.
About 15 men, interested in phys-
ical education, attended the meeting,;
but a great many more will take lig t
workouts in the gym. First aid will
probably be taught..

Sisler, '19E, Former Michigan Star,
Leads Joth ,ig League In Hitting

Arbor, he topped it off with more than
.400.
Time after time the Wolverine star
has hurled remarkable games. Among
these were the one and two-hit games,
against Cornell and M. A. C., re-
spectively, in 1915, and the 10 to 0
victory he scored over Pqnnsylvania
in his next to last game of his college
year.

Three different metropolitan papers
put George Sisler, '15E, at the head of;
the big league batters by a great lead,"
and apparently the former Michigan
sar has set out to emulate the work
of Ty Cobb, who has slumped some-
what during the past year.
Since entering professional baseball
on his graduation from Michigan, Sis-'
ler has been right at the front of the.
American and National league batters,l
but for the first time he has been lead-
ing his competitors for, several weeks.'
Average is .421
According .to the- Sunday Detroit
Free Press, Sisler's average is .421
for 54 gamies, during which he col-
lected a total of 99 hits. Speaker, of
Cleveland, is the closest to him in the
American league with a percentage
of .394, while Hornsby, of the St. Louisl
Cardipals, with which Mike Knode is
trying out, heads his league with .390.
Saturday's' New York Times gives
the following figures for the leading
batsmen of the majors:

Cleveland, Sisler truck out nine men,
and won the contet 3 to 1.
While in the University he played
in 1913, 1914, and 1915, and was cap-
tain in 1914, the year that Michigan
won the intercollegiate championship
of the United States. In both 1913 and
1914 Sisler was placed on the All-
American baseball team by a group
of 75 coaches and sport writers, who
had been picked for. the job.
Michigan's Gre test Star
He is easily Michigan's greatest
star, and even irk his undergraduate
days the scouts of the big teams were
after him. All throughr. his college
baseball career he hit more than .300,
and:Ji 1915, his final season in Ann

The Times gives him one more game
than does the. Free Press summary,
and in that one game George boosted
his average six points by garnering
three hits. If he continues at such a
clip, the St. Louis man will probably
stand chance of finishing the year
somewhere around the .500 mark.
Times Accurate
The Detroit Journal for Monday
credits Sisler with 106 hits out of 245
atteipts, which is some mean batting,
and this gives him a total of .423.
Probably the most accurate of the re-
ports is that by the New York Times,
which lets Sisler bat .427, although the
Journal may be the latest.
Since joiningwith the Browns in
1915, Sisler has played first base most
of the time. When he first went to St.
Louis, which was then managed by
Branch Rickey, -who had been the
Michigan coach in Sisler's first year
here, he tried out as a pitcher, but it
has been as a first baseman that he
has won renown.
Becomes First Baseman
The Michigan star was too valuable
a man, both as a slugger and a pil-
ferer of bases, to be permitted to
pitch, and consequently Rickey turned
him into a first baseman', so that he
could be used every day. In his sfive
years 'in major league ball Sislef has
made a great name for himself, and
he is apparently the man who is go-
ing to duplicate Ty Cobb's woxnderful
work of the past few years.
Each year hg has ranked dnear the
top of the leagle in bprtting average,
stolen bases and total bases. Pitch-
ing his first game for St. Louis against
