University Armory Homet
which Accommodates
Men at One Time

of Range

Seattle, Wash., March 6.-A rifle
range inferior to none in the United
States has just been completed by
the University of Washington.
When the university's cadets began
target practice the latter part of last
week, a range unequaled by even the
government range at Washington, D.
C., was opened for public inspection.
The new range is a "safety range" of
the type recommended by the National
Rifle association.
Every device known to rifle experts
has been incorporated into the equip-
ment for the new range and the cadets
will be able to practice during any
weather conditions. The range is en-
closed in the university armory and
has the conveniences of the latest
heating and lighting apparatus. Pro-
vision has been made for the joint use
of the range by six cadets at a time.
Among the safety features used in
the operation of the range is an auto-
matic target placer which carries
targets on a trolley to the proper posi-
tion. This eliminates any danger that
the score man is exposed to in the old

Veteran Twirler Shows Fine Form in
Spite of Lack of Practice and
Poor Condition
Keen Competition Evidenced for All
Infield Positions; Expect
Shifts Later
Shorty Miller spent his second day
in the cage pitching to the batters
yesterday. The lengthy hurler was
putting them over and cutting the
edges almost at will, showing possibly
the best control of any of the pitchers
thus far, considering the fact that he
has had so little work and has not
been in perfect condition during the
last few days.
Although the pitchers are not put-
ting a great deal on the ball and curv-
es and hookers are frowned upon by
the coach, they are putting enough
on to interest a large number of the
candidates who are hitting rather well.
The coach appeared well pleased
with the work of the squad taken as
a whole, repeating his remark of earl-
ier in the season, that there are more
good ball players out this year than
for several seasons past. Every man
is fighting for his berth, including the
old Varsity men.
Many Out
Hardly any position has less than
three or more men fighting over it.
For first base there are six candidates.
Newell, Birmingham, Wehmeyer, Coop-
er, Charpiot and West. Birmy looks
mighty good this year, hitting the ball
hard thus far and doing some fast
fielding. Jimmy Newell is going to be
hard to dislodge from his former berth,
while Wehmeyer, Cooper, Charpiot and
West make up an ensemble that will
be hard to choose between.
Second base has Middleditch, Laba-
die, Guardia and Sallwasser out battl-
ing. Middleditch played that position
for the All-fresh last year and is look-
ing well on the floor this season, while
Labadie and Sallwasser are both in
the running. Sallwasser has shown
that he can both hit and field. Com-
petition may be complicated more in
case Captain Brandell were shifted to
the infield and Larson or Walterhouse
tried along sacking lines.
Walterhouse, Larson, and Dancer
are short stops, and the choice should
be close again. Walt played there on
the 1916 Varsity while Dancer occupi-
ed the same berth on the 1916 year-
ling team. Larson can play either
short or second base so far as past
dope is concerned.
Horwitz and King of last year's All-
fresh are out for third base on theI
Varsity. Both are showing up consist-
ently, and both are hard workers.
Duke Arentz is also a prospective third
sacker this season.
Shifts Expected
Shifts all along the line may be ex
pected later in the season and the dope
may be entirely reversed as the coach
sees possibilities in men not displayed
on the register.
Tax Students to Supply Needs of Team
Hamilton, N. Y., March 5.-A tax of
25 cents has been levied upon each
student of Colgate university to pro-
vide funds for the tennis teams and
upkeep of the courts.
The tax will give every student the
privilege of using the university
courts and attending home matches
without additional charge.


Again did youth demonstrate its
superiority over old age last night
when the freshmen of the engineer-
ing'college handed the cold mitten to'
their Yollegiate juniors in the shape of
a 20-8 victory. The other scheduled
game, that between the architects and'
the pharmics, resulted in a win for the
architects by a 29 to 5 tally.
In the initial eontest between the
hammer heavers, things started out
with a bang for the first year men,t
who demonstrated their greater agres-
siveness and speed within the first
few minutes of play, Long before the1
first half was over the last year'sc
prep school boys had the game tied
hand and foot through the clever per-i
formance of Forward Weather. andl
