The last of the four game series
away from home for the Varsity will
be played at Camp Custer this after-
noon. The Camp Custer team is quite
a strong one and has made a good
record so far this season.
Custer has not been able to hit the
ball and for that reason lost to the
83 division team at Cleveland a few
days ago. It is thought by many that
the Conference champions will have
little trouble with the soldier boys.
The Michigan team will leave im-
mediately after the game and will ar-
rive in Ann Arbor on the Michigan
Central at 9:43 this evening.
The Custer lineup included the fol-
loiwng: - Pitchers, Private Brodie,
340th Infantry, and Private Kiser.
340th Infantry; catchers, Lieut .Bai-
ley, 338th Infantry (Division B mb-
ing Instructor; and Lieut. Murray,
328th Field Artillery; - first, Lieut.
Beall, 337th Infantry; second, Capt.
McQueen, 340th Infantry; third,
Lieut. Herman, 337th- Infantry; ss.,
Corporal Bippes, 310th Ammunition
Train; outfielders, Private Platte,
160th Depot Brigade; Lieut. Sheehy,
by, 338th Infantry.
Nearly two score of Michigan men
are stationed at Camp Hancock, near
Augusta, Georgia. Some are taking
the courses at the ordnance supply
school and others awaiting orders for
assignment to depots either in the
United States or overseas.
A large number of the men who
are taking the first courses in the
school are in provisional company D,
under the command of Lieut. Robert
Schiller, ex-'18. Lieutenant Schiller
was formerly on the business staff of
the Gargoyle and was appointed busi-
ness manager of the Wolverine last
summer, but due to enlistment in the
army had to resign.
Among the privates belonging to
company D are John E. Campbell,
'18, business manager of the athletic
program 1917-18; John Leonard, '16,
former business manager of the
Daily; Edward Hughes, '20L; Bruce
A. Swaney, '18, associate editor of the
Daily 1917-18; W. C. Roberts, ex-'18;
R. L. Barie, '17; and E. G. Brown,
Several thousand ordnance men are
stationed at Hancock, a large per-
centage of them being former college
men. Among the men who are await-
ing assignment is Mr. John Mosen-
felder, '17, formerly instructor in
jonrnalism at the University.
Camp Hancock is situated west of
Augusta in the midst of large pine
forests. Around the camp are ex-
cellent ranges for machine gun and
rifle practice, besides large drill
grounds. The health conditions are
excellent in spite of the intense heat,
and the reports of the camp show a
very clean bill of health, being third
of all the camps in the United States.

pacity of commissioned officers in the
service of the United States. Four
of these have been appointed, cap-
tains, and two first lieutenants.

is now in the heavy artillery tractor
school "somewhere in France," . ac-
cording to a communication received
this week from him by Homer L.

missioned as captains in the various
camps of the United States: Patrick

D. Koontz, '14L, Glenn M. Coulter; ex-
'18L, Matthew R. Blis'h, '11E, and
James Watkins, '09. Harry G. Gault,
'17L, is now commissioned as first
John G. Coffin, ex-'19, has success-
fully passed the examination for en-
sign at the Newport naval college,
Newport, R. I., and has been ordered
to take a four months' coures at An-
napolis, according to word received
by his parents, Mr. and< Mrs. I. H.
Coffin of Jackson. He has been grant-
ed a two week furlough and will be
at home next week.
Coffin enlisted in the navy as a sea-
man, being assigned to the training
ship Don Juan de. Austria, at Detroit
The Don was taken through the Wll-
and canal to the Atlantic coast, where
the old Spanish war ship has been
used in patrol duty, chasing suspected
raiders and patrolling the coast. Late
last fall the Don was piled on the
rocks at Woods Hole off the Massa-
chusetts coast. The crew was remov-
ed safely, but "Jack" Coffin with sev-
eral others, volunteered to remain
with the ship as guard. ' For abou
20 days during the heavy storms o
November it was a question whether
the old ship would hold together. She
was finally patched- up and brough
to Boston.
After this experience Coffin wa
assigned to take his examination fo
the commission of ensign. After hi
short course at Annapolis he will b
detailed for duty on some warship.
