ON TRIP TO COLMBUS
SEVERAL PLAYERS SICK; GAME
TODAY BETWEEN SCRUBS
Scheidler, pitching candidate, is the
latest Wolverine baseball player to
fall victim to the sickness jinx that
so far has claimed Glenn, Garrett, and
Bowerman of the Varsity squad.
The big hurler is laid up at the pre-
sent time with tonsilitis, and although
he has been able to work out a little
the past few days, he is not in the
best of condition. Glenn and Bower-
man are suffering the worst of the
rest of the men, having been unable
to don uniforms this week.
Coach Lundgren is hoping that these
men round into shape before Sunday,
the time of the start for Columbus,
for if Scheidler and Glenn, are laid
up, the Varsity hurling corps will be
sadly depleted, and the loss of Garrett
and Bowerman would take away one
regular infielder and a substitute first
All four of these men are practically
sure of taking the trip to Columbus.
Lundgren will doubtless carry five
pitchers on the excursion. Parsons
and Scheidler are the ones to get the
call along with Saunders, Ruzicka, and
Glenn. The Wolverine coach is count-
ing on big things from Ruzicka and
Glenn this year, and is expecting Par-
sons and Scheidler to form the bul-
wark of the staff in coming years.
Catchers Are Improving
Lungren is looking at the present
time for a substitute for Genebach,
now picked as the best Varsity cath-
er. Morrison, Haidler, and Mraz are
all possibilities and the coach has
been using these men frequently the
past few days. Both Morrison and
Mraz are still somewhat awkward, not
seeming able to snap throws as they
should, while Haidler suffers from a
lack of pep. Lundgren is hoping to
make good receivers out of all of
these men, and already the pegging of
Mraz has improved under the coach's
Lundgren had Garrett, third base-
man at the present time, up in the
athletic association office for an hour
yesterday morning instructing him in
the intracacies of the hot corner. Tom-
my promises to be a great player this
spring. - He is a sure fielder, a fair
hitter, and one of the hardest work-
ing players on the squad. No matter
where he is placed, Garrett works
like a trooper and is always in the
Adams ought to do better at second
than he could at third. Adams is not
overly strong physically, and a year's
absence from the game has not left
him in the best of condition. Adams
is working hard to get into shape and
his duties at the keystone sack, being
somewhat easier than those at the far
corner, ought to be better suited to
lanky Tom than his work at third.
Weather Handicaps Players
The cold wet weather of the past few
days has hindered the workings of
the players to quite an extent. The
squad has been favored so far this
year by exceptionally good weather,
and it has been only the past few
days that have been poor for baseball.
Two years ago the team was forced
to make its Southern trip without
only a week's outdoor work, and that
on a muddy field. The Columbus games
this season will find the Wolverines
much better off than did the contests
in the South two seasons ago.
Yesterday afternoon Lundgren sent
his men through the usual batting
practice, usingthe regular field. The
diamond was wet and muddy for use,
the infielders being somewhat. handi-
capped in its practice. Lundgren is
hoping for several days of good weath-
er before Saturday in order to get the
men in better shape for the journey.
This afternoon, weather permitting,
Lundgren will send the Varsity
against the scrubs in another practice
game, and since spring vacation starts
tomorrow, the fans on the campus
will have their last opportunity to
look the team over today before the
season starts after the holidays.
Chess Club Challenged for Match

club to be held at 7:30 o'clock this
evening in room 101 University hall.
For Tennis Ylen
COACH FARRELL TRIES OUT
NEW HAMER THROWER
It has been definitely announced
through the athletic office that Mich-
igan is to resume tennis this spring
as a Varsity sport.
Due to unsettled conditions and lack
of competition, this branch of athlet-
ics was dropped from the Varsity
schedule last year, and the racquet
stars were forced to content themselv-
es with a local tournament. Another'
tourney was staged last fall in which
a great amount of interest was tak-
en, more than 50 men taking part.
A number of the contestants in
the fall tournament were men who
have played before the local followers
of the game for the past three years,
these including: Egbert, who now
holds the championship cup; Hamer,
winner of last year's tournament;
Bartz, Harrison, Steketee, and Prath-
All of these men are stars at the
racquet game, and should make a
strong bid for a place on the team.
There are at least 15 more men on
the campus that have shown rare
form on the court, while there are a
number from last year's feshmen who
ae touted as being fast players.
The schedule which is now being
arranged will no doubt stack some
keen competition up against the Wol-
verines. While' no statements have
been given out by the authorities, it is
probable that most of the games will
be booked with Conference aggrega-
tions, and teams in this state.
The courts have been .in excellent
condition this spring, due to the small
amount of rain and abundance of sun-
shine, and quite a number of men have
already been out getting into form.
H. J. Hamer, who is at present man-
ager of this branch of athletics, stated
yesterday thpt the men have been
coming out almost every day for the
past month, and are already showing
the effect of their practice work. How-
ever he desires that all who expect
to play should put in an early appear-
POLLOCK AND JONES UNABLE TO
REACH DECISION IN
In one of the most evenly contested
matches ever seen in the campus, L.
L. Pollock, '19L, and R. H. Jones, com-
pany A, Second regiment, wrestling
for the middleweight championship,
grappled for 30 minutes yesterday
without a decision being reached. The
match had to be postponed until after
spring vacation, when it will be de-
cided at the same time as the heavy-
weight championship. This was also
supposed to be decided yesterday, but
on account of the illness of one of the
men, the contest had to be put off
until a later date.
The lightweight championship went
to J. C. McClure, company I, Second
regiment, who gained a judges' decis-
'ion over H. G. Cook, company B, Sec-
ond regiment, after 10 minutes. Mc-
Clure had the edge throughout, al-
ithough Cook fought stubbornly. The
latter, however, was forced to keep
on the defensive continually McClure
being always on top. The loser re-
peatedly wriggled out of the victor's
holds, and had just done so when time
was called, both men being on their
feet at the end.
However, the lightweight affair
could not compare with the middle-
weight, either in ability shown, or
excitement created. In the latter
match both men were on their feet for
the first five minutes, trying to getan
opening. When they did sing to the
mat, Pollock was on his knees with
Jones working over him. This was
the situation at the end of 10 minutes,
and as no decision had been reached,
the men were given three minutes rest
to be followed by five minutes more
The. men resumed the match seem-
ingly little fatigued. As the five min-
utes drew to a close, the judges had
not reached a decision, so another five
minutes was added without any res-
pite. After 18 minutes Pollock al-
most secured a'fall, but Jones wriggl-
ed out of the hold. At 20 minutes Pal-
lock was on top, but the match was
no nearer a decision, so the men were
given five minutes more. After 25
minutes the men were given another
breathing spell of three minutes.
At 27 minutes, Jones almost secured
4 fal-in fact, the judge was about
to tap him on the back, when Pollock
got out of the predicament by a super-
human effort. Time was called at 30
minutes with Pollock on top. The
judges decided to postpone the match,
and to hold it together with the heavy-
reight championship after vacation.

Star Loses Fame--
Sneeze Is Cause
He came out here from Painted
Post, all covered with glory and other
things that high schools give.. He
didn't do so well in fall and winter
sports, but when spring came around,
he slunk up to Coach Lundgren and
whispered, "Don't worry about the
outfield, Carl, I'll play that." So, you
see that there is no doubt that he was
on the sure road to recognition, fame,
and a Varsity sweater.
He got as far as his third strike in
yesterday afternoon's practice when
IT happened. He was all set with his
stick at 45 degree angle with the
plane of the athletic field, in the re-
gion of the home plate, and although
he'd missed two pretty obvious
chances, he wasn't a bit fussed. He
stood there and listened to the kid-
ding, although he couldn't see that it
applied to him very much. He shifted
his club confidently, saw another very
vivid vision of one of those large blue
sweaters with a yellow "M," and he
glowed in anticipation of the huge
impression that it would make in
Painted Post and later in Noo York
when he went there to visit his swell
cousin. He laughed softly as he look-
ed out toward the mound and watch-
ed the pitcher winding up; then he
turned, snickered at the catcher sag-
ging to his haunches, and finally -he
heaved his Casey's willow to his
The horsehide pill came hurtling
through the afternoon gloom, coming
right over the plate; not a chance in
the world of our hero's missing it.
And then IT happened. He sneezed.
The influenza GOT him, had crabbed
his last chance, dashed his vision of
THE sweater and blotted fame for-
ever from his career. Blowing his
nose, he loped from the field.

monograms were awarded to nine
members of the University of Iowa
squad including varsity "I,s" to Cap-
tain Van Lackum, Olson, Berrien, Cot-
ton, Brigham and Brown, and second-
ary "I's" to Freeze, Pyles, and Jenk-

elect a captain for next year soon.
The choice is said to lie between Ber-

Phillipps University on the map
It seems that this said school has
been noted for its weak basketball
teams, which, it seems, must have
'been due to poor coaching and not to
lack of material. When the business
men of the fair city, that claims Phil-
lipps as its own, engaged Maulbetch,
they signed him up for a two-year con-
tract, and told him that they had the
athletes and now they wanted to see
what lie could do.
Well-Maulie writes that his first
quintet had a wonderful season, win-
ning ten games and losing five. It.
might be well to note that this is more
games won by this school than they
have ever been able to garner since
the corner-stone was laid way back
in the pioneer days.
And now theywant Maulie to sign
a three-year contract.
DRAKE RELAY CARNIVAL DRAWS
MANY ATHLETES TO BIG MEET
Des Moines, Ia., April 3.--Twelve
relays and a special 100-yard dash
comprise the program for the annual
relay carnival at Drake university
here April 20. Four of the relays will
be for universities, three for colleges
and five for high schools.
With entries coming in from many
of the leading middle western schools,
indications are that- an unusually at-
tractive field will participate, includ-
ing a crack team from Camp Dodge,
unless military orders interfere.
The 100-yard dash is expected to
bring together some of the foremost
sprinters in the central meet. How-
ard Drew of Drake, world's champ-
ion in the century; Carl Johnson of
Michigan, who won high honors in the
"Big Ten" indoor meet recently, and
Sol Butler of Dubuque, are already
