Coach Lundgren male his second cut
in the Varsity squad yesterday after-
noon following practice. The coach
droplped 12 from the squad of candid-
ates and retained 4G men.
Out of the list the atecers are prov-
ing the most difficult to cut, judging
by, thepercentage cut o the total
number of candidates for the backstop
position. Only one man w as dropped
from eight possibilities.
Six pitchers departed, leaving 1§
still in the running. Birmingham was
dropped from this department and
transferred to the battle for guardian
of the first sack. Biriny's work on the
floor plus his known ability as an in
fielder overbalanced his pitching pro-
pensities and he is definitely added to
the competitors for first base.
On the infield one man was cut
from the candidates for first and an-
other added, and one each from sec-
ond and third bases, while short stop
still has three men listed.
Five outfielders are gone leaving
Niemann's injury may develop into a
fracture, according to reports, and that
he will be kept off the floor for at
least a week.

rison, Marcinkiewitz, Haidler, Dunne,

America 's Vest
Against Carroll
When Eddie Carroll lines up in St.
Louis Saturday night for the starter's
pistol, he'll find himself up against
one of the most picturesqe figures in
the track world.
Little Joie Ray hasn't a counterpart.
He's himself and there are no imi-
Ray lacs some of the natural ad-
vantages that have beenheaped upon
his collegiate opponents, but what-
ever knowledge and appreciation of
the finer things in life, that Joie may
lack, hetmore than makes up when he
slips into a pair of track shoes. Oh,
boy, how he can run!
AfterwNorman Taber broke the
world's record in the mile he was
heralded as the greatest miler in his-
tory and all that sort of stuff and prob-
ably he was-and is. But Joie didn't
lose any sleep when he learned Nor-
man was entered in the national
championships in 1915, he cried for
sheer joy.
How Joie trounced the renowned
Taber is a matter of history. He did
it and he did it according to Hoyle,
and all the other accepted authorities
on the conduct of sports and indoor
This year Ray has been running as
he never ran before and Eddie is go-
ing to find himself up against just
about the stiffest' proposition that he
has ever faced. With a record of
4:16 2-5 under his belt, however, Ed-
die doesn't remove his hat to anyone
and all Michigan is pulling for the
Maize and Blue captain.
It's going to be a great race every
step of the way and this youngster
