The Wolverine half mile relay team
which left yesterday for the Drake
relays will arrive in Des Moines late
this afternoon. Reports from officials
in charge of the meet say that a large
field has entered. The entry list shows
a total of 16 universities, 23 colleges,
and over 30 high schools will send
teams to participate.
Coach Farrell refused to comment
on the chances of the Maize and Blue
"thletes to win their event but from
the way the men have been perform-
ing the past week, they are more
than likely to cop first place. A
crack half mile relay squad composed
of soldiers from Camp Dodge will
probably be one of the competitors
of Steve's runners. Shearer, Jones,
Kasper, and King are the men picked
to represent the camp team. Shearer
and Kasper are former Notre Dame
stars and were on the relay squad
which beat the Wolverines when the
Catholics appeared in Waterman gym
a year ago.
Iowa Eager to See Johnson
Followers of track in the Iowa dis-
trict are eager to see Johnson, the
Michigan star in action. Drew, form-
erly of California, but now of Drake,
Hoyt of Grinnell, and Butler of Du-
buque college, are all starters in the
special 100 yard dash event and each
of these men is capable of sprint-
ing the distance at a 10 second clip.
The following is the list of univer-
sities and colleges entered in the
University section: Ames, Chicago,
Drake, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minne-
sota, Missouri, Nebraska, Notre Dame,
Northwestern, Purdue, Michigan Wis-
consin Washington, and Kansas Ag-
College section: Coe, Cornell, Des
Moines, Grinnell, Hamline, Highland
Park, Iowa, Wesleyan, Morningside,
Penn, Simpson, Wabash, Yankton, Un-
iversity of Soutth Dakota, South Da-
kota Aggies, Carletton, Nebraska,
Wesleyan, Dubuque, Beloit, and Knox.
Hamer and Egbert
To Meet Chicago
Chicago will bring a two ian team
here for the tennis tournament a week
from Saturday and Egbert and Hamer
will probably be chosen to play them.
Should weather conditions be like
they were yesterday afternoon the two
Michigan men will have plenty to do
to keep themselves warm. Several
men were on the courts in spite of
the gale and icicles but were unable to
get up much enthusiasm. Wellford
and Hamer were among those out.
Army Stores Men Leave Monday
The present army stores course
class, which graduates Saturday, will
leave Monday for Augusta, Ga., where
they will enter active service. There
are 139 in the class.

Varsity Prepares
For First Contest
Ground Keeper Thomas Puts Field in
Great Shape for Initial
To Ground Keeper Thomas go all
the grapes, laurel wreaths, and what
other tokens are usually donated to
the most deserving. Ground Keeper
Thomas has the Wolverine diamond
closely resembling a billiard table in
its smoothness and by strenuous ef-
forts the past few days has put the
playing field into excellent condition.
Thomas put in many good licks
while the ball players were frolicking
at Columbus and after the rain of the
past two days, the manager of the
green sward rolled the diamond for
several hours and when the men took
the field for their workout yesterday
afternoon, everything was ship shape.
Lundgren took the uniforms out of
the moth balls in the long over due
trunks and sent his proteges through
a hard batting and base running prac-
tice. For two hours Westscott, Glenn,
Goldsmith, and Ruzicka pitched to
the Varsity sluggers, who, acting on
signals from Lundgren, worked to de-
velop the hit and run, the sacrifice
and the squeeze plays. The men were
doing little real slugging but showed
real ability at bunting.
The scrubs took care of the infield
and outfield while Genebach and Mor-
rison swapped tricks behind the plate.
The Varsity players were given in-
structions to run everything out and
to keep on running whether they were
put out or not. As a consequence
Lundgren was able to give the men
plenty of drill in scoring the single
runs. This sort of team play is one
thing the Wolverine mentor special-
izes in.
Tomorrow afternoon the Wolverines
show off for the first time before the
home folks, Western Reserve furnish-
ing the opposition. Lundgren has not
decided upon his choice of pitchers,
but Glenn will probably get the call.


and then gave the infielders a chance
to show what they had. After this he
held a little batting practice.
There is lots of room for good ma-
terial. The slight turnout and the
rather poor showing of this turnout
shows the need of more candidates.
The baseball season is expected to be

a repitition of the football season. In
the latter as in the baseball this spring
the original practice did not show
much promise but the successive
evenings brought to light many more
men who later made good on the team
and proved in a large measure respon-
sible for its successful season.

Outfielders are especially desired.
There were but six men out for the
garden jobs and many more are need-
ed to put a team in the field that will
give the Varsity the battles given it
by former freshmen nines.

Women's League Reports Given Today
Annual reports of Women's league
officers will be given at four o'clock
today in Barbour gymnasium. Danc-
ing and refreshments will follow the
meeting. All girls interested in the
work of the league are urged to at-


More than 30 freshmen reported to
Coach Mitchell for their initial prac-
tice on Ferry field yesterday after-
The turnout was small in compari-
son to the initial practices of former
years, but this can be accounted for in
large measure, because of military
training. The men who are thus re-
stricted from turning out, are to see
Coach Mitchell, and provisions may
be made to release those in the train-
ing one or two nights a week.
Plenty of Catchers
The backstop position seemed the
most popular, there being seven men
out for it, while the other part of the
battery had no one trying for it at
all. There were two men that signed
up with assistant Adrian for the pitch-
ing job, one a south paw and the oth-
er a right hander. Jewell, the port
flinger, was used in the box against
the batters and seemed to have steam.
Gumm, the other candidate for the
mound, was worked toward the end of
the practice, and as he used nothing
but a straight ball, little could be told
of his work.
Coach Mitchell put the first year
men at chasing flies in the beginning

I would like to communicate with a few University of Mich-
igan men who are taking courses that will fit them for a bank-
ing career or for bond salesmen or other work in financial
institutions. I will arrange to be in Ann Arbor within a couple
of weeks and can offer to men who are considering going into
financial institutions after leaving college some profitable work
for this summer. This applies to freshmen and sophomores
especially. By profitable is meant both a money consideration
this summer and an opportunity to form connections which
may be of considerable value after graduation. Please write
me at once.
