George Sisler, the star first sacker
the St. Louis Browns, seems to
axe a habit of establishing new re-
rds. In Tuesday's game at Detroit,
took him less than 10 seconds to
ake two assists.
Two Tigers were out in the ninth,
[th Pop Young at bat. Young drove
liner down at Sisler, who did not
ve time to beat the runner to first
base, so he tossed the ball to Gallia
who ran to cover the bag. Gallia
dropped the throw and it rolled away.
Sisler grabbed the ball throwing it
to Gedeon at second, several feet=
ahead of Young who was attempting
to advance. Cedeon, also muffed the
ball, the runner reached second safe-
ly. In this way Sisler got two assists,
while Gedeon and Gallia each had an
error credited'against them.

WET- WEATHER DOESN'T
TO GATHER QUORUM
Coach Mitchell is having trouble of,
his own. Because of the uncertain
and varing attendance of the freshmen
at baseball practice, the yearling men-
tor has found it nearly impossible to
instill any team work into his players.
For several days there has been at
least two of the first team absent,
because of military training, or some
other unavoidable rdason.
Yesterday afternoon Decker and Ad-
dler did not appear for the game that
was to have been played with the Var-
sity, but which was called off because
of rain. Phenny, Mitch's choice for
second sack, has several hours of drill
to make up and will probably be ab-
sent from practice many times dur-
ing the ensuing two weeks.
The coach is confident that he has
material to fill the vacancies which
the war and graduation will tear in
the ranks of the Varsity. None of
the men have had practice enough to
show what they can do and condi-
tions are such that it will be exceed-
ingly difficult to teach the youngsters
anything except the rudiments of the
national game. This will give Lund-
gren a bigger problem than ever next
year for he will not only have to pol-
ish his new material but will have to
teach them the things they should
have learned on the freshman squad..

The entry list is steadily growing,

cared to enter. It was first given out
that only those who were eligible for
public activities could compete, but
under the new ruling for the meet, all
athletes, both eligible and ineligible,
who have secured permission from the
faculty, can take part.
The class teams in the grenade
throwing have not been picked as yet,
but the selections will probably be
made today. It will be hard to pick
the men for the teams, as most of the
tryouts are green at the game, al-
though there are several who have
made more progress than the others.
Haigh, Belknap, and Goodsell have
shown up the best in the practice ses-

CHES TO UNCLE
BELKNAP DISCOVERS NEW WAY
OF THROWING HAND GRENADES
Despite a shower a little earlier in
the afternoon, the regular company
baseball practice was held as usual
yesterday afternoon. It was the turn
of the Second battalion of the Second
regiment to use the three diamonds
on the south end of Ferry field. The
teams from these companies had snap-
py workouts while the rest of their
companies were having other forms of
athletics under Doctor May.
Grenade throwing at the targets
laid out by Doctor May was tried for
the first time yesterday afternoon.
The practice in the new event was
quite successful and it looks as if the
art of hurling the little missles were
going to receive considerable interest
in university athletic circles.
J. H. Belknap, '20, who has practi-
ced the grenade throwing as much as
anyone at Michigan, has found that
a longer and more accurate throw
can be obtained if the missle is thrown
spirally in the same manner as a for-
ward pass in football. He communi-
cated his discovery to Doctor May and
the latter is considering teaching all
of the R. 0. T. C. men to throw the
grenades in this way.
