SAUNDERIS HOOKS UP IN FINE
hURLING DUEL WITh TE AT-)LTE
Another Contest Due This Afternioon
Between First Team and
Reserves
Lundgren's Varsity again took the
measure of the scrubs, 2 to 0, in a
close five inning game yesterday aft-
ernoon, at Ferry field.
The game was a pitcher's battle
throughout, with Saunders doing the
hurling for the scrubs and Ruzicka
working in the box for the Varsity.
Saunders breezed along in fine style
and had it not been for a wild throw
by Darbaker and a couple of scrub
misplays, he would have held, the reg-
ulars scoreless.
Ruzicka took things easily except in
the pinches and he held the aspirants
well in hand at' all stages. The scrubs
filled the bases with one out on one
occasion but Ruzy fanned one man
and forced the other to hit an .easy
fly to right. The scrubs got a manz
around to third on one other occa-
sion but failed to get him across the
plate.
Fielding Falls Off
The fielding was wretched for the
most part yesterday but the batters
unlimbered to quite an extent and
were slamming the ball around the
lot in great style. Clever handling
of hard chanceshelped both pitchers
yet both suffered frome poor, work on
the easier smashes.

tional baseballl ,eague club owners,
meeting here today, voted to disband

Acting President Chapin ainounced

that he voted for the majority in be-
half of his own club of Rochester, and
also by proxy for the Buffalo man-
agement.
The question was thrashed out for
a long time previous to the final vote.
Mr. Chapin has been appointed to

two sets of infielders and declared
that the practice was the worst he
had seen in 10 years. There was a
total absence of snap in the play of
the Varsity and rt until the fag end:
of the workout 4;a1 the men pep up
to any considerablk extent. The coach
declared that tnere would have to be:
more fight displayed or else the Wol-
verines would prove no match for the
Conference teams.
Garrett Plays Second on Varsity
Lundgren brought Garrett back up
from the scrubs yesterday and sent
Cooper back to left field. Garrett has
been going great guns on defense at
short and he kept up the pace in yes-
terday's game. He was not hitting the
first part of the week but he found his
eye during the battle and smashed
out one hit and connected solidly with
several others.
If Garrett can keep up his hitting
and fielding at the same tin4, Lund-
gren-will not have to worry for a sec-
ond baseman. The keystone sack has
presented the biggest problem of the
season for the coach seemed unable
to find a man who could field the place
and still rap out the hits when they,
were needed. Garrett, formerly an out-
fielder, has always been a clever field-
er but did not hit at all until yester-
day.

The Wolverine track squad is wait-
ing for .the time when it will journey
down to Ferry Field for their work-
outs. None -of the men have been do-
ing much in the line of hard work this
week as Steve has been letting them
off with short easy sessions on the
track next to Waterman gymnasium.
Captain Donnelly has been work-
ing harder than any of the rest of the
squad as Red is anxious to get back
into condition. He has been handi-
capped all season by illness and by a
late start in his training. Donnelly
expects to be alltright in time for the
first outdoor meet.
Sedgwick, another of Coach Far-
rell's long distance runners, has been
kept from practice for several days
on account of a bad cold, but Sedg
informed the coach yesterday that he
would be 'around for a workout to-
day.
The jumping pits inside the wooden
oval, which Steve has named Little
Ferry Field, are completed and the
field event men have been taking ad-
vantage ,of them to get used to the
outdoor turf. Johnson was working
on the broad jump yesterday making
several leaps of better than 21 feet.
His record in prep school was better
than this, however, and with more
practice, he ought to be able to in-
crease the distance of his jumps.

Cooper, another man whom Lund-
gren has tried at second, will probab-
bly play the outfield from now on.
Cooper did not seem at home on sec-
ond base and he gummed many
chances. He is a strong hitter, how-
ever, and has a good arm. He pull-
ed down several hard smashes from
Genebach and Mraz in the game yes-
terday, robbing Mraz of a three bag-
ger at oneJ time by a clever leap-
ing catch of a hot liner.
Gilmartin Rack in Uniform
Gilmartin, who laid himself up a
week ago by slicing his thumb re-
ported in a uniform yesterday after-
noon. Gil worked a while at fielding
and bunted a fesw balls but he will
lay off the heavy work until next
week. His thumb is still bound up
and though healing rapidly is stiff
and sore. Gilniartin is a first base-
man a.nd will give Bowerman a bat-
tle for the job the big sophomore has
been holding down ever since Gil was
laid up.
Lundgren will probably send the two
teams at each other again this after-
noon. Scheidler, Glenn, Parsons, Crock-
ett, Goldsmith, and Westcott are ready
to pitch and several of them will see
service this afternoon. Lundgren has
given all his catchers except Morri-
son, a chance behind the plate this
week. Morrison has been playing first;
base on the scrubs but he will 'likely
don the big mit before long.
The present Varsity lineup: Knode,
short; Adams, third; Cooper, left;
Bowerman, first; Ohlmacher, right;
Langenhan, center; Garrett, second;
Haidler, catch; Ruzicka, Saunders, or,
Glenn, pitch.

day's program consisted of several

game between the soldiers and the
Tigers in the afternoon, and a dance
in the evening.

All of the players were royally en-

were as good fighters as they were
entertainers, the Huns were surely in
