Cadets Will Have
Big Outdoor Ieet
Baseball, Both Indoor and Regulation,
Will Be Played
At present there is little doing in
the way of company athletics, but Dr.
May promises that as soon as the
baseball and outdoor track seasons
arrive there will be plenty of sport.
The success of the indoor company
meet makes a big outdoor meet of
the same nature a certainty. Base-
ball, both regulation and indoor, Will,
also receive considerable attention.
Because of the lack of diamonds it
would be very difficult for all of the
men to play baseball at all frequently.
And, since Dr. May wants everybody
to have the benefit of the game, the'
probability is that indoor ball will be
played outside. The small space re-
quired to carry on a game of indoor
will make it possible for every one to
participate in at least one game a
There is another consideration,
which may seem foolish to many, but
which is nevertheless a fact. There
are a surprisingly large number of
men in the university who have never
played baseball and who might very
well be injured in trying to handle a
hard ball. And since the object is to
have everyone take part, it is thought
the game played with the softer ball
would be preferred.
However the regular game will be
played to some extent, and in all prob-
ability each company will be repre-
sented by a team of this sort.

series will be played directly after
spring vacation, so now is the time

The remainder of the Wolverine
track team will depart for the Big
Ten indoor meet this afternoon on
the 1:16 Michigan Central. The men
who will go with Manager Dudley
and Trainer Muirhead are Captain
Donnelly, Zoellin, Johnson, Cook,
Beardsley, Sedgwick, Haigh, Later,
Cross, and Baker.
The team will go a day- ahead of
time so that they will arrive in Chi-
cago early enough to get rest before
the meet. The squad which left yes-
terday with Coach Farrell will run
in the preliminary heats of the 440-
yard dash and the half-mile at four
o'clock this afternoon. Forbes, Mess-
ner, and Kruger will be the Maize and
Blue starters in the 440-yard event
and Stoll will be the Michigan repre-
sentative in the half mile. Steve ex-
pects all these men to place and get
into the finals Saturday night. In the
quarter-mile there are 22 athletes en-
tered and in the half-mile 21.

HE spring styles for your sturdy young American are distinctly
military in spirit-he wouldn't have anything else in these
stirring times. But it's a season to look beyond style. Everyone

knows that good fabrics are


Nowadays, when mother sends Ari-
minta down to Michigan to make a
catch (of course that's the only rea-
son they ever come) it's just as like-
ly to be a high ball as a parlor snake,
while even the word "home" no long-
er has the same significance for her.
Perhaps you think fair A. is some-
what off her base, to put it in vulgar
parlance. Your assumption is prob-
ably correct, for this is her first sea-
son, and baseball is such a difficult
maneuver to the average feminine
mind. 4
The crux of the matter is that
Coach Lundgren's appeal for more
candidates has struck a patriotic
chord in the hearts of Michigan wo-
men. Think they: "We made a go of
the opera, so why not gambol on the
diamond, and become regular base-
pall Barbara Fritchies?"
They practice mostly in front of
their sorority houses, though the more
timid ones occasionally take to the
back lot or the ball room. From pres-
