Joe Robins, Veteran Twirler, Shows
Evidences of Excellent
Coach Lundgren made the first cut
of the year in the Varsity baseball
squad yesterday. About 15 men are
eliminated from the running by the
cut, and 55 names are still retained on
The hurling department suffered
most, six names formerly on the reg-
ister being crossed out, while the
catchers Were next in order with three
casualties. Two first basemen were
cut, and two from the outfield.
Pitchers Show Form
The pitchers are lettiig out a little
more every day as they face the bat-
ters, and both are getting good prac-
tice. Very few of the twirlers are put-
ting anything on the ball as yet, but
plenty of smoke is in evidence. Joe
Robins looked extremely good for his
second day out, and held the batters
to a fairly low percentage of wallops,
and is apparently in as good condition
as most of the pitchers who have been
out a longer time.
Hall Scores Hits
The batters, as a whole, are show-
ing pretty good eyes. Birmingham
bids fair to prove an exception to the
rule that a pitcher can't hit by getting
more than his share of touches in a
shorter length of time than most of
the candidates. Birmy also took two
throws which would ordinarily have
entitled him to a base. Hall, the 1916
yearling outfielder, is another promis-
ing slugger, hitting the ball freely re-
gardless of pitchers.
Keep 55 Try-outs
The following men will remain on
the squad: Catchers, Mattson, Under-
wood, Payne, Morrison, Marcinkiewitz,
Haidler, Dunne, and Hammond; pitch-
ers, Parks, Pettigrew, Hildner, Gar-
iepy, Getts, Payette, Gotfredson,

dia, Sallwasser, Middleditch, and La-
badie; third base, King, Horwitz, I.

piot, W. K. Niemann, Ferguson, Gar-

Tommy Hughitt, former Varsity
quarterback, All-fresh b5aseball coach
and Maine Varsity football mentor,
visited Waterman gym yesterday aft-
ernoon giving Coach Lundgren's pro-
teges a lookover. The ex-pilot of
Yost's 1915 eleven contributed to the
afternoon's features by stepping into
the batting cage for a regular turn.
The battery, consisting of Joe Rob-
ins and Mattson, entertained the vis-
itor. Tommy nailed the third strike
for a safe hit into the roof of the
net, but the redoubtable Robins forced
him to take the count on the next
three, with Tommy redeeming himself
,n the next wallop, batting an averag

SECOND YEAR MEN CLEAN
SENIORS OF TWo COL-
Only three games of the 10 scied-
uled for last night were played off
in the second set of the first round
of the interclass basketball tourna-
ment. The others were either called
off or postponed.
In the first tilt of the evening, the
soph lits, last year's campus cham-
pions, had things their own way. The
title holders defeated the fourth year
men of the same school by a score of
45 to 7. The first tally was chalked
up early in the game, when Hyman
caged a pretty one for the underclass-
men. This started the sophs on their
way. Emory, a second year man, was
the star of the evening scoring 16 of
the points credited to his aggregation.,
Next to him came McClintock with 10
points and Cook with eight counts.
Russell was the only fourth year man
who showed any form.
About the same time that the cham-
pions were trouncing their older
brothers, the soph engineers were
humiliating the fourth year boiler-
I makers. There was nothing spectac-
ular in this game, however, the final
count registering 17 for the sophs
and nine for the seniors. Reynolds

UNIVERSITY OF DETROIT GETS
TOUTED WASHINGTON MENTOR,
Coach Dobie, formerly of the Univer-
sity of Washington, was signed yes-
terday as mentor of the University of
Detroit's 1917 football team. During
his term of service for the western
school, Dobie made the unusual
cord of an unbroken string of victoi
and because of this fact, Michig
initial game with the Detroit sci
will be watched with unusual inter

were caging them for the last yearl
The last fray of the evening con-
sisted of a tussle between the jnnior
and senior laws. The fourth year bar-
risters had a man by the name of
Baxter playing which was a fortunate
thing for them, because the contest
was all Baxter. This man started the
ball rolling by caging a basket early
in the contest. Lokker was a close
second for the evening's honors. He
excelled especially in foul shooting,
getting four baskets out of as many
trials. The final score was 27 to sev-
en in favor of the seniors.
The last set of the first round will
be completed the early part of next
week. Only those teams which have
landed either first or second place in
their respective groups will be per-
initted to participate in the second
