Zuna Ruins Own
Chances By Too
Strenuous Work
When the American marathon squad
sets sail for Paris for the Olympic
games this summer Frank Zuna willi
go along as an alternate, with slim
chance of competing in the blue rib-
bon event of the athletic world. This
because of, and not despite, the fact
that he has won two regulation mara-
thons in his country since the first of
the year.
Early in the year members of the
Olympic committee tried to make it,
clear to all men hopeful of being sel-
ected for the U. S. team that the rec-
ent Boston marathon would be con-
isdered the final tryout for the team.
The Detroit and Baltimore runs held
before the Hub contest, were consider-
ed sectional ones in which possible
new stars might be produced. Recog-
nized runners of merit, however, were
advisedtagainst entering more than
one meet.
Zuna, despite the fact that the sit-
uation should have been clear to him,
entered the Baltimore and Detroit'
events. He ran both races to win and
did capture both events, extending
himself to do so. Olympic officials
point out that they warned Zuna per-
sonally against competing in the De-
troit event after testing his endurance
in the eastern run.
Now, the officials feel, Zuna has
spent himself-has burned up his
strength and muscles in the two races
and will not be able to give hs best
in the big event across the water. He
dropped out of the Boston race with a
few miles to go.
Clarence De Mar, whose victory in
the Boston run gives him the prom-
inent position in the Olympic squad,
ran in the Baltimore race, but simply
to test himself. He did not try to win
and was content to lope in third.
Indoor baseball on the campus hasf
started with a- record entry of 62 fra-

i Punch For Illimo s
G~aine Tomiorrow

Coach Ray Fisher continued to con-
centrate his attentions upon strength-
ening the Wolverine offense in yester-
day's workout in preparatign for the
crucial contest with Illinois which will
be played here tomorrow.
The squad returned from South Bend
in fine shape and should be fit forj
Saturday's battle. Although losing toI
the Irish 6-2, the Wolverines were farI
from outclassed. Gillingham, who
twirled his first game for Michigan,
held the winners in check in all. but
two innings, and gave evidence of de-
veloping into a capable moundsman.
Gillingham looked especially good
under fire, succeeding in holding th9
Irish after they got men on the paths.
Michigansmade three errorscduring
the contest, but two of these came in,
one inning, when four runs were
chalked up for Notre Da ie.
In the seventh inninj Michigan
started a rally when 3lott, Haggerty,
and Dillman filled the bases with none
out. However the next three men
failed to deliver the necessary punch.
Haggerty led in the attack with four
bingles in as many trips to the plate,
three of his hits being bunts.
Following yesterday's workout, the
men were given a short fielding drill.
Shoesmith and Torrey were used to
pitch to the batters. Stryker and
Benson, who are the probable choices
for the pitching duty tomorrow, took
things easy.

United States
When the athletes take their marks
for the sprint events at the Olympics
this summer at Paris, the United Stat-!
es will be represented by a formidable
collection of dash men.
Of coure, Charles Paddock, the Cal-
ifornia Flash leads the groups. Pad-
dock showed skeptical critics that lie
is still a wor'ld-beater when he stepp-
ed the 100 yard event in 9 6-10 sec-
onds, unofficial time, at the Drake
Relays. In 1920, he won the 100
metre dash in 10 4-5 at the Olympics
at Antwerp.,
Next to Paddock comes Loren Mur-
chison, who was also a member of the
Yankee team in 1920. 1He placed six-
th in the 100 metre event that year,
but he has reached his pinnacle since
then, and many dopestors consider him
th2 equal of Paddock. .
Eddie Sudden and Morris KirkseyjI
are residents of the same section of
the country that boasts of Paddock,
and will make matters interesting for
the rest of the field. Kirksey ran see-
ond to Padock at Antwerp.
Chester Bowman, of Syracuse univ-
versity, is looked upon by his admirers
as the successor to Allan .Woodring,
another Syracuse product, who captur-
ed the 200 metre dash in the 19201
games. Bowman's chief claim to fame
rests in a victory which he scored over
Murchison this winter.
Boots Lever, former Pennsy star,
has been assiduously training Mur-
chison this season, and has given Lor-i
en some uncomfortably close races.
Lever won the intercollegiate cham-
pionship at 100 yards last summer.
Francis Hussey, schoolboy cham-
pion, also has strong possibilities asi
an Olympic runner. le was caught.
at 9 3-5 seconds for the 100 yard
event last year, and seems to be im-
proving with age..
Other capable men are Al Leconey,E
Louis Clarke, Bob McAllister, Jack I
Scholz, and Bernie Wefers, Jr., all of
whom have chances ofmaking a berth
on the Yankee team.

chased by the Brooklyn Dodgers
from the St. Louis Cards, made
his debut as a Robin, and has
shown that he is in shape to
take up the duties of infielding
for the Brooklyn club regularly.
Stock was a holdout until the
I Card magnates made the deal
that transferred him to Brook-
lyn. !Mike Gonzales, veteran
catcher, went to the Cards along
with a cash payment of $7,500.
If he continues to show the
form he exhibited in his first
game Tuesday, Stock will be a
great asset to the Dodgers.





Is Frankie Frisch, wonder boy of
the New York Giants, on the verge of
crowding Eddie Collins and Rogers
Hornsby out of the second basing
Those who have followed the game
for years and have seen Frisch in act-
ion the last year say now, after watch-
ing his work this season, that he is
already disputing the honor of being
the best second baseman with the vet-
eran Eddie and the dashing Hcrnsby.
Of course, such a comparison at this
time, does not cast any reflection on
Collins. The former member of Con-
nie Mack's $100,000 infield, is passing
the crest. He- had a wonderful year
last season-one of the best in his
career-but he cannot be expected to
set that pace two or three more years.
Hornsby, while a veteran, has not
reached the turning point as yet. He
should ask no favors in a battle with
Firsch for the keystone title, as far
as this season or next are concerned.
Frisch is now setting a pace that h'e
should keep for years, barring acci-
dents. There is no doubt.but what he
will succeed Hornsby and Collins
eventually. How soon remains a

Same Lineup That Defeated Saginaw
Clab To Meet M. A. C.
Michigan's Varsity tennis squad will
swing into action tomorrow afternoon
at the Ferry field courts when it
stacks up aaginst the squad represent-
ing M. A. C.
Not much is known concerning the
merits of the Green squad. Captain
Croll is the only exeprienced man on
a squad composed in the main of
Sophomores but in spite of the num-
her of new men, it is expected that
the Farmers will put up a battle worth
fatching. Croll, who plays number 1,
is an experienced tournament man and
if he plays true to form, he will make
it interesting for his opponent.
Michigan will undoubtedly be rep-
resenfed by the same men who saw
service in the Saginaw matches last
Captain Rorich, will lead the Wol-
verine attack by playing number one
match against Croll, the Farmer lead-
er. Brick will undoubtedly play num-
ber two for Michigan with Hodgman,
Vose, and Crane following in respect-
ive order. The doubles team has not
as yet been selected but the chances
are that Rorich will pair up with
Brick, while Hodgmani teams with
either Vose or Crane.
Next Wednesday, the Wolvern e
court-men cross racquets with the
strong Notre Dame outfit. Headed by
Donovan, who plays number 1, the
Catholics have rounded out a most
formidable squad and it is expected
that one of the fastest matches of the
year -will be a certainty next Wed-
nesday on the Ferry field courts when
they meet the Maize and Blue wearers.
Donovan won the Indoor Open
Championships in Detroit recently and
in slashiig his way through for the
title disposed of O'Connell, one of the
best racquet weilders in the state, and
"Chuck" Merkel, ranking man on last
year's squad and Conference singles
champion. Headed by Donovan, the
Notre Dame court men feel confident
of avenging the defeat that was hand-
ed them lAst year by the Wolverine
t' lefatinn.
