At present Coach Lundgren has
about seven pitchers and a similar.
number of catchers working daily in
the gymnasium and the coach is anx-
ious to see more men in the school
who have any ability in catching or
pitching to report for practice and.
loosen out the kinks before the stren-
uous practices begin. These candi-
dates have passed the primary stage.
of sore arms but the coach has put
the taboo on the fast ones until the
squad is able to cavort on the dia-
mond on Ferry field.
Though the call for infielders and
outfielders has not yet been given sev-
eral of the boys have taken advantage
of the opportunity to work up their
wind and get accustomed to the pill by
reporting at the gym during the bat-
tery workouts. Coach Lundgren has
given the early reporters pointers in
stopping the fast grounders and the
candidates will be in fair condition
when the first call for candidates for
the fielding positions is sounded.
Seven Catchers Reporting
The men who have signed the chart
as candidates for the catching staff
on the Varsity nine are, Morrison,
Gennebach, Mraz, Payne, Hayes, Bige-
low, and Wortnich. The work of these
men in the gym shows that the ability
of the .catching staff is average, but
the coach is still angling around for
some niew blood to report for prac-
tice. There are several mei in col-
lege who are known to be first class
catchers and the coacht hopes that
these men swill come out. and bolster
up thencompetition for the catching
position, which has been weakened.
by the absence of letter men in school'
this year.;
On the pitching staff thus far Coach
Lundgren has several new players
and after the team is able to get out-
doors the coach will give each man: a
thorough tryout before he cuts the
squad. The men who have signed up,
are Ruzicka, Glenn, Goldsmith, Crock-
ett, Gariepy, Saunders, and Westcott.

A number of seniors who have as
yet been unable to reconcile them-
selves to the spectacle of Michigan's
continuous Conference basketball de=
feats are planning to -invade the;gym
Friday night for the Chicago game.
They have in mind arounsing some of
the old Michigan "pep" into the scene,
"pep~~ which seems to have lost itself'
within the maze of the opera, and
other exciting wartime. innovations.
These seniors have not entirely for-
gotten the fighting support given that
muddy day last fall when Michigan
gave Nebraska one of the surprises of'
her life. They see visions of a Irepe-
tition-without the mud. They want
a chance to stretch their lungs, after a
long winter of more or less stagnation.
They realize that their college course
is almost run, and desire to put forth
at least one mort parting shot to get
Michigan out of the rut, in which she
seems to be reclining at present.
An invitation is extended to seniors
in particular, and the campus in gen-
eral, to come over to the gym for the
game. Those of us behind the move
feel sorry that it is incumbent to take
the game away from Chicago, but in-
asmuch as she appears on the docket
for Friday, this cannot, of course be

"The athletic and gymnastic pro-
gram which has been given to the R.
Q. T. C. men is practically the same
as the standard exercises adopted in
the different United States army can-
tonment camps," stated Ifr. George A.
May yesterday afternoon. "Beginning
at 4:15 o'clock this afternoon the men
will participate in actual contests,
whichare intended to rain the en
tire body." The following contests
will be held today:
First regiment: companies I and K,
relay racing; companies LandM,
rope climbing, standing broad jump.
The two groups will be reversed aft-
er the first half hour.
H. J. Weeks, a graduate from the
engineering college, who gained fame
on the Varsity football team while in
the University, has received a com-
mission as captain in the engineering
corps. Weeks' first notable piece of
work after his graduation was the
building of the concrete stadium on
Ferry field.
Col. Victor C. Vaughan will talk on
"The Path of the Hun," at 4 o'clock
this afternoon in the Natural Science
auditorium. The lecture will be ill-
ustrated by three reels of motion pic-'
tures, which are furnished by the
British government, showing the de-
vastated districts in Belgium and
Harold C. L: Jackson, ex-'18, frmer
managing editor of The Daily, and R
D. O'Brien, a former University stu-
dent, are among those having the'
highest standing in the officers' school
at Camp Custer, according to inform-
ation issued, by the intelligence office
at the camp yesterday. Both the stu-
dents are in the artillery branch.
Where Are the Horses I
Two students were disucsing th
advantages and disadvantages of the
R. O. T. C. Finally the non-member
asked the cadet: j{aven't the offic-
lals taught you something useful?
That is, have you learned to mount
guard yet?"
"Why, we haven't any horses," was
the astonishing reply.
The following basketball playing
schedule will be given at 8 o'clock to-1
night in Waterman gymnasium:
Eight o'clock- Company A, First
regiment vs. company I, Second regi-
ment, court 1, and company C, Se-
ond regiment vs. company L, First
regiment, court 4; 8:30 o'clock-
Headquarters company vs. company
B, Second regiment, court 4; and
company M, First regiment vs. com-
pany M, Second regiment, court 1.
Company E, First regiment, will
fall in opposite Hill auditorium at
4:15 o'clock this afternoon.
In case of good weather this after-
noon, the Second regiment will drill
outside instead of going to University
hall for a lecture, according to an an-
nouncement issued last night. The
companies will fall in opposite Hill
auditorium. This program will be
effective for the First regiment Friday
if the weather permits.
A list of the shoe checks which have
not been presented will be posted to-
day at the R. 0. T. C. office. "Unless

After the time trials' yesterday af-
ternoon, Sedgwick, Donnelly; Forbes,

the two-mile relay team to be taken
to the Illinois relay carnival. Of these
men Captain Sedgwick and Donnelly
are the only ones who have had any
experience in inter-collegiate meets.:
Johnson, star hurdler, is counted on
for points, and Zoellin, who is entered
in the sprints, pis expected to come
through. Haigh, a high Jumper, Bak-
er, a shot putter, and Cross, a pole
vaulter, are the other men who will
accompany Coach Farrell and Manag-
er Dudley to Urbana tomorrow.
Just where the Wolverines will

difficult to dope out as little has been:
heard of the other collegs. In the
sprints, Zoellin will run up against
some stiff competition in Captain

dash in a meet with Illinois last Sat-"

en by a basketball team, four for. the
second best, three for the best class
of college song, and three for the

Two aesthetic group dances will be
the feature of the cotillion which fol-
lows the supper, beginning promptly

ed that everyone will arrive in time
for grand march.
