Perrin Stars for Waterbury
Jack Perrin has made a big hit
with the Waterbury, Conn., baseball
fans by his spectacular fielding and
hard hittinig. Jack was recently trans-
ferred from the Boston Red 'Sox to
the Waterbury team of the Eastern
league, for the remainder of the sea-
son.
Perrin's name appears in glowing
headlines as being the man who can
fill the right field position for Water-
bury. According, to the Waterbury
sport column, right field has been a
spot of daily torment and sorrow to
the local fans until Perrin appeared.
It stated that recruits came and de-
parted in bunches, but none could fill'
the vacancy.
Finally Uerrin appeared, and in his
initial game he made a dazzling stab
of a line drive in the eighth inning of
-a one to nothing battle, which saved
the game for Waterbury. The line
drive was traveling at a mile a min-
ute clip toward the f nce in right
center, and none of the fans thought
Perrin had a chance to pull down the
drive. However Jack dug his cleats
into the grass, shot across the turf,
flung himself into the air, and spear-,
ed the speeding, sphere with his glov-
ed hand. The catch saved the game,
and together with Jack's two , hits in
three trips to the plate which was
half of the number made by the whole
team, put him in great favor with the
fans.
The .popularity of''Perrin is well
shown also by some clippings which
read, "Address your bouquets verbal
and otherwise to Jack Perrin, care of
the Waterbury Baseball club, and al-
so ask the University ,of Michigan
board if there are any more like him
in Ann Arbor."
IlnIiich. Ganie Date Set for Drive
Illinois university has plans to,
launch its alumni campaign, in its
drive for funds, with which to erect
a new football stadium, Oct. 29, the
day- of the gridiron contest with Mich-j
igan on the Urbana field. Undoubted-
ly the Illini heads figure that Michigan
will be the biggest drawing card of
the season, and have elected to open
the campaign on the date when the
Wolverine and Indian elevens juggle
the. pig skin up and down the field.
The campaign will last for a week.
California to Have Strong Eleven
Both Stanford and California foot-
ball squads will begin preliminary
work Sept. 15, in accordance with
the rulings of the Pacific coast con-

ference. This date is the same as the
one on which the Big Ten squads
swing into action.
California, champions of the Coast
last year and conquerors of Ohio
State, will lose only two of last sea-
son's star players because of gradu-
ation. Majors and Sprott will be
missing when practice opens. Both of
these men performed on Ferry field
in the All-Western track meet of
1920. Sprott captured second place in
the half mile while Majors was in the
weight events.
Michigan's attempts to secure a
gridiron contest ,with the Bears for
this fall was unsuccessful . Both
teams had open dates but they could
not find a date which both schools
had open. California had a game open
the day Michigan meets Wisconsin,
while the Wolverines' open date fell
on the day of the game between Cali-
fornia and the University of Southern
California.
Yost in Ann Arbor
Coach' Fielding H. Yost arrived in
Ann Arbor this afternoon from Chi-
cago, where he has been for several
days since leaving his home in Nash-
ville, Tenn. The big football mentor
is getting things ready for fall. Calls
for candidates will'be sent out in the
next few weeks. Michigan's opening
Conference game is with Ohio State
at Ann Arbor Oct. 22. This is a week
later than most of the Big Ten teams
vie for honors.
Ohio State will come to Michigan
after a battle with Minnesota at Co-
lumbus the week before. Iowa will
entertain Illinois at Iowa City Oct. 15,
while Northwestern and Chicago will
settle all differences Oct. 1.
