The sun and a cloudless sky brought
joy to the manager's heart this morn
ing and the lirst thing he did was to
pack the men off. to the park, when'
they were put through the first series
of practice stunts. The morning was
spent in batting, catching and throw
ing. No attempt was made at a prac
tice game as the men art" too soft to
indulge in stiff work at the very first.
The pitchers were given a chance to
do a little preparatory limbering of
the throwing arms and the out and
infielders had an opportunity to chase
the ball around the lot.
This afternoon the men were taken
out to the park again, and as long as
the weather is at all favorable it will
be made the most of. The lineup for
the Davenport game has not been
made out yet and prolwibly will not
be ready to give out until Saturday.
The game with' Peoria is probably
off entirely. The Rock Island club
arranged for the game, understand
ing that it was to be played today,
but the Peoria men say that the date
was math" for next Thursday instead.
As the team will Ihen be at Iowa City
this undoubtedly means no game with
