LEADERS HERE,
CLOWNSAND ALL
Washington Comes for Three-
Game Series—New Faces
In Lineup
Tiie Nationals of Washington,
which are pitching, hitting and
clowning their way to an American
league championship, arrived In i>e
troit ibis morning ready for the
series with the Tigers
that starts today. There are several
strangers in the National lineup this
y*ar One that is sure to be in the
game is Judge, he new first base
man who came from Buffalo, in the
International league. He is a field
ing marvel, but a comparatively
weak hitter.
In the outfield may be Rondeau,
who was a Tiger catching recruit a
few years ago. He was not much
of a catcher, but In the American
association he was given a trial as
a fly-chaser in an emergency and
developed into quite a gardener. He
has been used frequently by Griffith
this spring. Another new outfielder
is Barber, who may appear during
the series. A third is Jamieson, who
also came from Buffalo.
Among the pitchers who are
strangers is a young Mr. Dumont,
who has done excellent work this
spring, and Harry Harper, a south
paw developed last season at Minne
apolis by Billy Sullivan. Gallia,
Boehling and Ayers are also on tbe
job, and so is Walter Johnson, who
is slated to pitch the Sabbath fracas.
Griffith’s pitchers have not gone so
well this week ae hitherto this sea
son, and the club lost four straight
at Boston. There is no reason to
doubt tbe strength of the staff, how
ever, and it la certain that the
Tigers will see some fancy books
before the weekend is over.
Washington carries a circus in
connection with the hall club this
year. Nick Altrock, favorite of tbe
fans for nearly a generation. Is
along, and his baseball tricks will
again be a headliner. Altrock has
a real rival on the club this year in
a rookie by tbe name of Tom Saw
yer, who Is an acrobat of great clev
erness. He takes advantage of his
skill to stage stunts In the coaching
box that are a scream, his line run
ning chiefly to imitations. Tbe work
of this pair of comedians is very
entertaining and adds to tbe fun of
an afternoon at the ball perk.
Inasmuch as it is the custom to
permit the Tigers to see no more
right-band pitchers this year than
necessary, it would not be surprising
if Manager Griffith started Boehling
this afternoon. Both Harper and
Gallia could work, since they have
not performed since Wednesday, but
Boehling is a bit fresher.
Dubuc la the morning choice for
the Tigers. Nobody except Cunning
ham has pitched since Wednesday,
however, and everybody else is eli
gible.

WORK HOLDS
NOTRE DAME
ANN ARBOR. Mich. June 3.—For
one of the very few times this
spring, it appeared yesterday after
noon that the University of Michi
gan had a baseball club. That’s
because Miller hurled a beautiful
game against Notre Dame, holding
the Catholics to one run. Thus the
two counters, scored by the Wolver
ines, was good for a victory. Th#
game went 11 Innings, and was won
on s triple by CapL Labadle, and a
wild pitch.

MICHIGAN IS
EATING DOST
Wolverine Schools WiQ Bo
Lucky to Win n First At
Ann Arbor Today
ANN ARBOR. Mich.. Jun# 1/
Grand Rapids Central la the only
Michigan high school which has a
chance to win the state Interacho
lastic track and field meet here this
afternoon, and that chance Is nick
ering. Shaw high, of Cleveland, has
qualified more uieu than any other
school, but Oregon (111.) high stands
as good a chance to win as any one,
according to the dope- This little
achool has sent two real stars in
Loomis and Landers, and this pair
has cleaned up more than one meet
this spring. IxH>mis Is a brother of
the famous Chicago runner. These
boys are very likely to run away
with a lot of flrats and seconds In
the dashes, short runs and hurdle*,
and they have a knack of picking up
a lot of scattering points In the Held
events.
Joliet high ranks next to Shaw In
number of men qualified, with Oregon
following with nine. Toledo Scott,
Crane Tech (Chicago) and Grand
Rapids are next with seven. A num
ber of schools got three men In,
among them Ann Arbor, D. U. 8.
and Detroit Eastern. Muskegon put
In two men and so did Pontiac. Bay
City Eastern was the last Michigan
school to break in the finals, but
one man landing from the up-state
school-
This morning It seemed probable
that Michigan schools would not get
more than one first place In the
finals, this afternoon. The one
chance la for Gleason or Wasbrook,
of Detroit Eastern, to win the pole
vault. The other Eastern man to
qualify was Walbridge, who took
third in the slow heat of the half
mile run. Detroit University school
got Pond, Robb and Swift into the
finals. Pond was second in the shot
put. Swift won the slowest of four
heats In the high hurdles, Robb
was third in the fast heat in the
quarter-mile run.
S. A. E CRUISE TO
COVER 882 MILES
"The annual cruise of the Society
of Automobile Engineers, which will
be held aboard the Noronlc.’ flag
ship of the Northern Navigation Cos.,
will be the longest voyage of Its
kind in the history of the mid-sum

the best cruise of all,” said W. A.
Brush, secretary of the 1916 meet
ings committM while discussing the
arrangements being made for the
cruise, to be held June 12-16. "The
total distance to be covered by the
‘Noronlc’ In this cruise Is 862 miles-
From Detroit to Mackinaw- Island,
our first stop, is 303 miles, and from
there to Killamry Is a distance of
183 miles. From Killsmey to Owen
Bound Is 89 miles, and from Owen
Sound to Detroit Is 307 miles.”
MILWAUKEE. Wis.. June 3.
Charlie White. Chicago lightweight,
won the fastest )>an)e of his fighting
career here last night, when he de
feated Rlichle Mitchell. Milwaukee
pride, |n a 10-round bout. White
turned every trick he knew to slip
over the sleep punch, but failed. Six
rounds were White’s, two Mitchell's,
and the other two even.
