FAIR TImE MADE IN SEVERAL
EVENTS; SEDGWICK COPS MILE
Williams, FreshMain, Defeats Baker,
Varsity Shot Putter, By
Two Feet
The sophomores with Johnson as
their big point getter won the Inter-
class track meet last night at Water-
man gymnasium by a total of 27
points.
The Juniors came in a close second
with 24 points, the freshmen and sen-
iors trailing in order having 18 and 11
points to their credit.
Johnson won 11 points for the 1920
men easily beating his opponents to
the tape in the high and low hurdles,
while in the high jump he secured
third place. Forbes and Cross took
their events and between them added
10 points to the sophomore count.
Zoellin and Beardsley-. were the
chief poilt winners for the juniors,
Zoellin winning the fifty yard dash
and coming in third in the high hurdl-
es. Beardsley took two.seconds and a
third.
One of the surprises of the meet was
the defeat of Baker, Varsity shot put-
ter, by Williamns, a freshman who
made a throw of 40 feet five and one-
half inches, two better than Bakers
best heave.
Captain Sedgwick won the mile with
ease, almost lapping his nearest com-
petitor. Red Donnelly, another one of
Coach Farrell's dependables took the
lead at the beginning of the half mile
and kept it throughout, finishing in
the fast time of 2 minutes, 5 2-5 sec-
onds.
In the final event of the evening,
the freshmen defeated the sophomores
in thesoph-fresh relay. The going
was about even, for the first three laps,
but in the last lap Mesner, the anchor
man for the 1921 men drew away from
the last soph runner and breasted the
tape five yards ahead.
Eddie Carroll, '1714, last year's track
captain and Coach Farrell's star mil-
er, was one of the track judges of last
night's meet.

Lundgren altered the program a bit
by knocking grounders to the players.
The pitchers took turns in warming
up to Mraz, Morrison, Haidler, and
Geneback, while those who hope to
hold down infield or outfield positions
chased- the balls the coach sent shoot-
ing down the gymnasium floor.
General Call Expected Soon
It will be several days yet before
the general call for all met will be
issued as Lundgren is not yet able
to leave the hurlers to themselves.
Though there have been some infield-
ers on hand the past few days, the
coach does not care to have all can-
didates on hand until the batting cage
is lowered and'the pitchers have work-]
ed out enough to take care of their
own practice.
Although there have not been many
men out as yet for the baseball, the
calibre of those who have put in
an appearance seems to be far above
the average and competition for jobs
on the nine promises to be keener
than usual. Knode and Adams, ex-
perienced infielders, seem asr'ured of
positions on the inner line of defense,
but the other two positions there as
well as the outfield jobs are open.
Ohlmacher, pitcher last season, and
Cooper, outfielder in 1917, are both
trying for first base. Adams, of the
1916 freshman team, is a shark at
the initial sack, but because he is able
to, play other places on the infield,
Adams may be shifted to third or
short and one of the two mentioned
above may land at the first hassock.
Knode seems to have his job at sec-
ond salted away even though he will
not be able to practice regularly un-
til the end of March, Lundgren may
decide to shift the star keystone man
to third or short in case of necessity,
which would leave second base open
for a new comer.

to swat the pill along with these play-
ers, the chances are that Michigan
will have a strong offensive ,club this
year. With Ruzicka and Glenn on the
mound, the Wolverine nine promises
to be well fortified defensively as well,
and unless all dope goes wrong, the
1918 baseball team ought to hold its
own with all opponents.
By the end of the week, the calibre
of the men out for positions cther than
pitcher or catcher will be better
known and Lundgren can start more
definite work toward the building of
his machine.
