M.Htiff of 9.9 Varsity. A Fev,
Words From Lawson.
There was a meeting- of the oh
Varsity men Saturday for the pur
pose of filling- out the places vacan
this year and also to select a scrul
team. The following were pres
ent: , Graves, Lawson. Woodard
r.mhpth. Carr and Allison. For
the present these men will hold
their old positions and, ot course
will continue to do so until a more
worthy man applies for the place
For .first ... base, it is uncertain
who will tret it. Bennett is the
steadiest man and will be given the
place for the present at least.
Whitley will fill Roger's place a
centre field. Oldham will be put
in rig-lit field.
Don't let any man feel hurt tha
he has not made the team, for this
arrangement was simply made so
that the captain could practise the
Varsity men together and would
give him an opportunity to do some
good coaching in signals, base-run
ning and. such like. This now is
he most important time for the
men to come out on time, so that
thev can . work together, and get
used to one another's playing
The following scrub team was se
lected: Foust, the only candidate
for the position, will catch
Battle and Willcox. two promis
ing pitchers, will alternate on
scrubs and Varsity. Lawson will
very likely pitch for scrubs, so as
to give the Varsity men an oppor
tunity to bat against g-ood pitch
itiP-. Richardson will hold first
base and ought to make a good
man, if he would not play quite so
fast. He should take more time
and play carefully. Graves L. and
Capeheart will be alternated at
second. But at present, Graves
has the advantage. Capeheart
fields well but uses no judgment in
Brem R. will play short, , Ifjs
fielding and batting are very good.
Graham G. and Fetter will be

advantage can be given. Another
week will be needed to decide who
is the best man. Although Gra

the lead. .
Holt will be used on both Varsity
nd Scrubs. He is entirely too
slow. at present. , His hitting is

lhe deserving man will always
have the place. Of course, the
captain will use his own judgmen
in any such change, but at present
it was necessary to make a start
He says if any of the men wish to
ask him any questions or his advice
he will be glad to help them out.
Ag-ain an appeal is made for the
boys to come out to the practice
g-ames and cheer every good play.
The pitchers from this time on will
be allowed to use curves and to do
their best work so that the batters
can be selected, hence there will be
need of more rooting from the bovs
No one on the team feels the g-ood
of good rooting- more than the
pitcher, so let everybody come out.
Our prospects are far better than
last yea and if the team is backed
by the student bodv there is no rea
son why the 1900 team cannot be
as good in batting and probably
better in fielding- than the famous
'96 team. Everyone should do hi
best to make it a good team and not
have so much personal guying- on
the field. We can't expect to have
a team at that rate.
Goddoes't force grace on any one.
He made us as free-agents and you
can choose for yourselves.
God commits the destiuv of
everyone to himself.
