"ressen Leading
Off for Jennings


Checked Baggage for



Coach Satisfied with Work of
Against Columbus Last


Somewhere between Columbus and
Ann Arbor the uniforms and bats of
the Michigan baseball team are taking
a little rest, unmindful of the fact
that the Wolverines find it hard to
perform without the necessary ac-
coutrements. Until the outfits are
found and returned to Coach Lund-
gren, the diamond pastimers will be
forced to take a vacation.
Coach Lundgren declares he surely
checked the luggage at Columbus but
since leaving the Ohio town he does
not know where the trunks went.
John Edmunds is of the belief that the
suits are held up at Toledo and has
applied for permission to take a trip
there at once to arrange matters for
the ball team. Ground Keeper Thomas,
whose duties on the field are not heavy
when the players are unable to prac-
tice, believes he could be of assistance
to Edmunds at Toledo.
Coach Lundgren, who does not want
to lose the services of his ground
keeper or Bartelme's chief assistant,
is hopefully awaiting the arrival of
the balls, bats, and suits within a few
hours and believes the men can get
back on Ferry field in regular attire
this afternoon. The Western Reserve
game is on the schedule for Saturday
and the players need the workouts be-
fore the contest.
The coach was fairly well satisfied
with the showing of his men at Col-
umbus and said yesterday afternoon
that he would use the same lineup
against Western Reserve that he start-
ed in the second Columbus tilt with
the exception of Knode, who is to
have his tonsils removed some time
this week. The loss of the shortstop
may force the coach to use Mraz at
third and Garrett at short, a combina-
tion that worked well the opening
day at Columbus.
Although they failed to secure a hit
in the game Saturday, the Wolverines'
did not put up a bad article of ball.
Glenn pitched an excellent game and1
had it not been for two errors at
critical places, one a wild throw by'
Garrett and another a poor peg by
Cooper, the veteran cross fire artist
might have copped the game. As it
was, the Tinkers had to fight right up
to the finish in, order to win.
The same team, using the same
pitchers that the Michigan men faced,
defeated the Washington club of the
American league, Sunday afternoon
and also trounced Detroit's Tigers
Monday. Neither of the major
league aggregations hit any betterl
than did Lundgren's proteges againstt
the hurlers Tinker presented.
The Wolverine infield made a few
errors on easy chances but worked
hard all the time and killed several
sure hits by flashy plays. Knode,
Adams, Mraz, and Cooper played the
best games for the Michigan nine,Y
while Glenn pitched a game that won1
him wholesome respect from the Col-£
umbus team.f
Mraz, catcher and outfielder on the1
freshman team last spring, seems to
have won a berth on the team. He is e
not only a fair backstop, but can alsor
handle an infield job and can chaset
flies with the best of them in the
gardens. He put up a fine game at
third the first day of ball at Colum-
bus and handled himself well in thet
outfield the next d'ay. Rudy is a good
hitter, though he is handicapped at
the present time by a bad hand. t
John Roberts, formerly a pitchert
of wonderful reputation, has report-
ed for the team. He turned out in al
suit Monday and worked out for az
short time. John threw his arm out
three years ago and even Bonesetter
Reese has been unable to get the1
whip in shape. Roberts hopes to be
able to throw well enough to play in
the meadows, but his days in the box

are over.
If the straying, uniforms are re-1
covered in time, there will be a prac-
tice game this afternoon between the
Varsity and the scrubs.

Detroit, April 16.-Now that Manager
Jennings has been using his recruit
first baseman, Leo Dressen, as lead-
off man in the batting order, local
sport writers are predicting that the
Tigers will prove unusually danger-
ous on the attack this year. ,
The Detroit club has never been able
to iake much use of the double steal
but if Dressen can show the speed
which he exhibited in the American
association, he and Cobb ought to be
able to work many double pilferings.
The young first sacker is succeeding
Bush, the veteran shortstop, in the
lead-off position. It is expected that
he will be able to hit for .275 or
better and thus get on the sacks more
often than Bush.
Bush will come second in the batting
order and will be very valuable there
as a sacrifice hitter. The midget has
always been an expert in this depart-
ment and should be able to advance
Dressen consistently if he succeeds in
reaching first. Cobb, Veach and Heil-
man, all sluggers, will follow in order
and will prove a tough combination for
any twirler.



Track is again in full swing after
several days layoff during vacation.
All the squad reported for work yes-
terday and went- through a stiff work-
Coach Farrell held time trials for
his two mile relay team yesterday, but
the showing of the men was not good
enough to send them to the Drake
relays next Saturday. Several of the
runners showed the effects of the
break in training and did not come up
to the expectations of the Wolverine
track mentor. The results of the
trials will probably mean that no two
mile relay squad will enter in the
Penn Relays which follow the meet
at Des Moines.
Tomorow Steve plans to run off the
trials in the half mile sprint medley
relay. It is certain that a team will
be entered in this event at Drake as
there are enough good sprinters to
make up a fast quartette. Johnson,
Zoellin, and Cook are sure of being
taken along. The fight for the fourth
man is between Messner and Beards-
ley. Both men are able to negotiate
the two twenty at a fast pace and the
only thing which is bothering Qoach
Farrell is who he should take along.
Johnson is getting into shape for
the 100 yard dash event which will
be held in connection with the relay.
This contest is a special and will
bring some of the best sprinters in
the country together to furnish one of
the stiffest struggles of the track sea-
Tournament play in women's ten-
nis will start the first of next week.
As all drawings must be made by the
end of this week, anyone intending to
enter the tournament must sign the
list posted in Barbour gymnasium be-
fore that time. Quite a number of
entries have been made already, but
more are desired to make possible a
number of good match games.
During the vacation period the
courts have been treated to a practi-
cally 'waterproof surface, and with
the exception of one or two courts,
are ready for playing.
In addition to singles, a doubles
tournament will also be played, for
the first time in some years. Any
questions concerning tennis ishould
be referred to Grace Hall, '20, tennis
manager. Athletic honor points are
given for participation in this sport.
Another game in the inter-sorority
baseball series will be played between
Kappa Kappa Gamma and Chi Omega
at 4 o'clock this afternoon on the field
across from Barbour gymnasium.
Most of the team members have
been utilizing small brothers during
the vacation period with the result
that a strictly scientific game of ball
