TEAM IN PRACTICE GAME!
BRAND OF BALL
Michigan's All-fresh baseball hope-
fuls disposed of the Varsity in an ab-
breviated game yesterday afternoon,
pushing two runners across the plate
while their elders counted but once.
The yearlings took the contest in
handy fashion, earning both of their
counters, while they checked the
perspiring efforts of the Varsity with
a neatness and despatch that augurs
well for future University of Michi-
gan baseball teams. The Varsity
spotted the freshmen pitcher, Parks,
for the first three innings and the
youngster baffled the men of Lund-
gren with a smile and a curve ball
that kept him out of danger at all
times. Dwyer took up the burden of
deceiving the Varsity when Parksey
withdrew from further hostilities and
he was scored upon once. Billy Nie-
mann. soaking a sacrifice fly to right

inning. Lush worked the first three

Saunders who succeeded him for two
runs in the fatal fifth. Wimbles, the
first batter up, slammed a long three

later on a sacrifice fly to right field,
Billy Niemann contributing probably
the prettiest catch of the year in
snaring the drive. It was a liner just
over the infield and the lad from north
tore in at full speed and speared it
with one hand some six or seven mil
limeters above the sod. The second
run was the result of hits and the
fresh earned their victory over their

DEFEATED SEMI - FINALISTS;
BARTZ AND HARRISON
The University of Michigan Tennis
club tournament has progressed to the
finals, Westbroi vid Egbert winning
out in the semi-final matches played
yesterday afternoon. Both struggles
developed exteremely fast tennis.
In three hard fought sets Westbrook
managed to defeat Bartz, the score
standing 6-3, 8-6, 6-2. In the second
set Bartz had Westbrook 6-5 and it
looked as though he might break
through the almost invincible attack of
his opponent, but Westbrook rallied
and averted defeat by taking the next
Harrison fought a plucky four set
match against Egbert but the sup-
erior driving and net play of the vic-
tor proved too much for Harrison.
Westbrook and Egbert meet in the
finals on Monday and some of the fast-
est tennis that has been seen this
spring is anticipated as both men
are going in splendid fashion. The de-
feated semi-finalists meet today.

afternoon at a meeting called together
by Rosey Rowe in the interests of the
University of Michigan Tennis club.
Each class will have a four man team

Intramural Director Rowe has intro-
duced a novel method for winning
places on the team and one that is
calculated to bring unusual interest in
holding positions on the four aggrega-
tions. The managers will appoint a
team at the beginning but any man in
the University who believes that he
can defeat one of the players selected
has the right to challenge him for
the position and if he is successful in
winning, will be awarded the position.
IHe can, in turn, be challenged by any-
one else and thus holding a position
means constant competition.
Those who are interested are to
call their respective class managers
not latter than Monday. The following
men have been appointed:
Seniors -- Dawley, phone 1809-M;
juniors--Hindley, phone 2370; sopho-

No Decision on
Matter of A wards
There has been considerable specu-
lation on the campus as to whether
track and baseball men would receive
an "M" for their work this season.
Director of outdoor athletics, P. G.
Bartelme stated yesterday afternoon
that no action had been taken on this
point as yet.
"I have no idea whether 'M's' will be
awarded this year," said Mr. Bartelme.
"The board has taken absolutely no
action on the question and until they
do there can be nothing but pure
The basis fro such awards would
prove a rather difficult matter, ac-
cording to some, but until it is de-
cided by those in charge, conclusions
either way are idle speculation.
