Several Wolverines Slugging for Bet-
ter Than. .300 So
Michigan will probably face Indiana
Wednesday afternoon minus the ser-
vices of hortstop Knode and Captain
Knode left for Pittsburg several
days ago to see his brother who is to
leave shortly for France. Kinney did
not expect to be back until after the
middle of the week and most probably
Lundgren will have to rebuild his in-
field for the Hoosier game.
Glenn Has Bad Arm
Captain Glenn is suffering from a
badly wrenched shoulder which he
strained in the last Chicago game.
Bob hurt his arm in the fourth in-
ning but did not mention it until the
seventh when Lundgren sent Ruzicka
out to warm up. 'Before Ruzy could
get his arm going right, the Maroons
had put enough men on the bases to
win the game and the damage was
Yesterday afternoon Glenn could
hardly throw a ball and suffered agony
when he tried any fancy stuff. He
said after practice that he hoped to
be in shape in a short time but he
was not sumethat he could resume his
usual position at the head of the pitch
ing corps for a week or more.
Glenn's loss throws the major por-
tion of the pitching upon the shoul-
ders of Ruzicka, who showed himself
last Friday to be in fair condition.
Ruzy will have a hard time of it next
week if he has to go through the big
game alone and Saunders will probab-
ly be called upon to help him out if
Glenn is unable to return to the fold.
Just what changes Lundgren will
make if Knode does not return :n
time for the game Wednesday is hard
to say. Knode has been doing big
things on defense, despite his error
of Saturday; while his slugging has
been responsible for many of the runs
the Wolverines havewmade Knode
won .Friday's game when he tripled
in the first inning and scored on Ohl-
macher's single. Kinney has two trip-
les and a home run to his credit so
far and is batting close to the .300
Infield to be Shifted
It is most likely that Lundgren will
move Garrett back to short if Knode
fails to put in an appearance, with
Adams going' to the'keystone and Gil-
martin back to first. This is a strong
combination but does not approach
the Mraz-Knode-Garrett-Adams ag-
gregation that has been used the past
few games.
Mraz, at the present time, is leading
the team in batting. The little third
baseman has collectedh1i hits in a
total of 24 times at bat, for a grand
average of .458. Morrison is batting
for .400 and Ohlmacher is still above
the .300 mark. Knode has a .376 bat-
ting average.
Yesterday afternoon Lundgren sent
his' men through a long batting prac-
tice, using Parsons, Westcott, and
Saunders on the mound. Gilmartin
received a long drill in handling fly
balls, Cushing sending Gil back to
the edge of the field for the long ones
he was batting out.
Favored by the fine weather, the
baseball teams },of the companies in
the Firstbattalion of the First regi-
ment indulged in a short but snappy
practice yesterday afternoon. The
program consisted mainly of knocling
out flies and grounders to the fielders,
while a couple of the squads engaged

in a short practice game. The teams
played on the diamonds which Doc-
tor May has laid out at the south end
of Ferry field.
Every company baseball squad will
have a chance to work out this week
at the time when the rest of their
company is engaged in athletic drill
under Doctor. May. The regular iched-
ule of games will begin next week.
There; will be a meeting of the cori
pany baseball managers Saturday at
1:30 o'clock to arrange matters for the
coming contests.
Out door track for the companies
will not be started for a short time
yet, as Doctor May wishes to Jet the
baseball well started before commenc-
ing arrangements for a company meat

Mitchell's freshmen, assisted . by
several tennis players, tried to pull
off an impromptu game, after it had
been decided that Coach Lundgren did
not wish the fresh first team to play
against the Varsity, but innumerable
errors and wild heaves turned the
event into a golf match.
The scrub team managed to make
seven runs while the first team could
accumulate only one off the offerings
of Kimball. Fly balls to the outfield
were good for from one to four bases
because the fielders could not decide
who was to go after the ball, or else
dropped it.
Chaotic base running and poor peg-
ging to the bases by thenpitchers and
catchers were the features of the six
innings played. Attempts to steal
bases when a hit would have brought
in a run were the causes of the third
putout being made several times.
None of the first string men seemed
to be able to hit the ball, some of them
striking out every time they came to
bat. Williams, one of the second
string men, surprised the coach by lay-
ing down a perfeet bunt and beating
the throw to the bag by several feet.
Undoubtedly the game planned for
yesterday afternoon between the
freshmen and the Varsity will be play-
ed this afternoon. Mitchell expects
his pitchers out this afternoon, most
of them being absent yesterday.
The annual outdoor class track meet
will be held this Saturday under the
direction of Coach Steve Farrell and
Track Manager Dudley.
The outdoor meet is held on the
same basis as the indoor affair, all men
whether on the Varsity team or not,
being eligible -to compete provided
they are eligible scholastically. The
points are scored by classes.
It is expected that the sophomores
will have a walkaway with the meet
as they have the biggest point winners
on the Varsity track team. The sec-
ond year men copped the indoor meet
a month or so ago with the juniors and
freshmen giving them a tough battle.
Few Seniors Entered
The seniors will not have much of
a chance to place high in the meet.
Krueger, half and quarter miler, is a
senior as is Captain Donnelly, miler,
but practically all the rest of the men
on the track team are underclassmen.
Beardesley, hurdler and sprinter, and
Sedgwick, miler, are juniors.
Some real competition will develop
in several events. In the hurdles
Beardesley will give Johnson a real
race as the junior has been follow-
ing Carl over the sticks in great shape.
The high jump will be between Haigh,
Later, and -Johnson, while Cook will
contest Johnson's superiority in the
Good Freshman in Shot-Put
Williams, a freshman, is expected
to nose Baker out again in the shot-
put. The husky yearling won this
event indoors, shoving the weight
many inches past the best mark of the
Varsity candidate. Lindstrom, a foot-
ball player, is also a shot-putter of

some ability. Another freshman will
contest the high jump, Hobi, who has
been doing close to 5 feet 10 inches,
being ready to takepart in this event.
Slaughter and Cross will fight it out
for the pole vaulting ribbon. Slaught-
er, a freshman, has done better than
Cross has been able to do but Cross
bested the first year man indoors.
Cross has been working more regular-
ly than Slaughter and will have the
advantage on him.
This meet will give Michigan fans
their first chance to see their Varsity
runners on the cinder path.
Final details will be announced in a
day or two.
ball teams will undoubtedly want to
come out for track also, and it wvould
confuse matters too much if both these
sports were begun at the sarix . e.

In the east, Neyw York seemingly
reigns supreme in the National league.
The Giants have played 15 games to
date and of those they have won 14
and lost one. All the teams they have
met have been those along the Atlan-
tic seaboard and none have even shown
a spark of the brand'of ball put up by
the champions of the older circuit.
Unless the west show more than the
east, the New York Nationals will
have an easy time in romping off with
another pennant this year.
The 'team that has come to the
foreground during the past several
days is the Chicago Cubs, they having
won five and lost none during the
last week. The absence of Alexander
seems to have made no difference to
the 'Windy City team, for it has climb-
ed into second place from the second
division since the star pitcher entered
the service.
Philies in Third Place
Although they have lost all of their
games to the Giants, the Phillies start-
ed the season "by beating everything
that they played and are in third place.
During the past week, however, the'
have slipped from second place; hav-
ing lost to all of the five teams that
they met.
The other five teams of the circuit
are playing more or less even. Bos-
ton. is in the cellar with a percentage
of .200; having won but three games
since the start of the season. Brook-
lyn, after losing nine games without
a win, has picked up considerably and
in the last five games played, they
'have lost but one. They now hold
sixth place.
The American league race does not
appear so much like a runaway. Bos-
ton, who is on top , haal been beaten five
times and it is certain that the west-
ern clubs are stronger in the younger
circuit than the eastern. Cleveland,
Chicago, and Detroit are all expected
to be around the top when everything
is over, and at present they hold
second, third and fifth respectively.
The White Sov have not struck their
stride but with their well balanced
team, it is the consensus of opinion
that the World championships will re-
peat at least in their own league. At
present they are playing .500 ball,
having divided the 12 games partici-
pated in since the start of the year.



Yanks Must be Considered
The Yanks are another team that
may cause some little worry. With
Baker, Pratt, Bodie, and Pipp to drive
in the runs and their strong staff
of pitchers to hold their opponents in
check, they are possible contenders.
Along with the Yanks, the St. Louis
Browns is another aggregation which
may suprise a few. They have a team
of batters and men that are fast on
the bases.
The race in the Americal league will
be one of the tightest in history if the
early promises bear fruit. Six teams
can be counted in the running for
the first division and Chicago, Boston,
and Cleveland probably will be fight-
ing for the right to met the Giants.'
This should in some measure compen-
sate for the runaway affair in the
National, and keep the public inter-
ested in the national pastime.
