Coach Lundgren gave his infielders
a little taste of work around the bases
yesterday afternoon. During the sec-
ond hour the coach had his prospec-
tive sackers and short stops working

nasium to the keystone sack.

his ability by some fast work after
rollers, rousing memories of two sea-
sons ago when the present leader
played regularly at short.

and both did creditable work for the
first day of infield practice.
Morrison then took a turn at peg-
ging to second with Horwitz and
Martin working farther down the
floor. Both Morrison and Haidler
threw well although the work of all
the catchers along this line was a lit-
tle erratic due to lack of practice.
Lundgren also had the batters prac-
ticing bunts, devoting the entire aft-
ernoon in the cage to the short tap-
ping. In spite of the fact that th
pitchers are putting quite a lot of
smoke on the ball, the batters were
giving a very fair exhibition of bunt-
Dunne Hit by Foul
Morrie Dunne was forced to fore-
go his turn as the result of a blow
on the throat from a foul. A batter
tipped Park's fast delivery and the
ball went under the mask with the
result that Morrie took the count for
a space. Although the big backstop
was forced to leave the floor the injury
is not serious and he expects to be
on hand for this afternoon's practice.
Carroll Receives
X-Country Letter
Eddie is Awarded First "M" of This
Description Ever Given at
Eddie Carroll has been awarded the
first cross-country "M" ever given out
at Michigan.
Eddie was the first Wolverine run-
ner to finish in one of the first ten
places in the eastern intercollegiate
run, which is the requirement for the
insignia. The 1915 squad was the first
one to enter the eastern classic in re-z
cent years and Eddie missed his de-
coration by a narrow margin that
year, finishing eleventh. Years ago,
Michigan cross-country teams compet-
ed in this race but no wearer of the
Maize and Blue finished among the
select ten in those days.f

A long and steady pull wins in the end, and this comes
from the right food combined with rational exercise.
The right food is
Shredded Wheat
-the favorite food of men who do things in the class-
room and on the athletic field. It contains all the
muscle-building, brain-making material in the whole
wheat grain made digestible by steam-cooking, shred-
ding and baking. It puts gimp and ginger into the
tired brain and worn-out body. It is on the training
table of nearly every college and university in the
United States and Canada. Some of the most promi-
nent coaches in foot-ball, and other forms of athletic
games have given it preference over all other foods.
