Lundgren Falls. Before Farrell
Bullock; Weather Prohibits
Coach Carl Lundgren defended the
indoor checker title a.gainst all corners
except Steve Farrell and Caretaker
Bullock in the Ferry field clubhouse
yesterday afternoon. That was the
nearest approach to Varsity baseball
action that the day afforded.
There was no practice. The ground
was soft and the wind swept so freak-
ishly over the field that the law and
engineering 'drill companies were
given the freedom of the whole lot by
the knights of the diamond. This rest

crop of charley horses, caused by
working in the raw weather of the
last few days.

the way of competition for Saturday,
but the All-fresh may be taken into
camp for a game today, if play is pos-
sible. The Varsity still is aching to
hook up against the Reserves some
.time this week.
Guy Reem, who suffered a sprained
ankle last week, is out now without
crutches and may be in play again
