More Than 120 Candidates ReportC
To Coach Little for1

f f

1 Michigan's- baseball game with
Notre Dame, originally scheduled
for Friday afternoon has been
rescheduled for Thursday, after-
noon because of the Olympic try-
I outs which are to 'e hekI on
Ferry field Fiiday and.Satirday.


Spring football classes, held
throughout the entire spring season
under the direct supervision of Coach
Little, have been discontinued for the
remainder of the school year and in-
terest In the gridiron sport points
toward the opening of the training
season next fall.
More Thani 120 Out
With more than 120 men on his
roster, Coach Little, ably aided by
a competent corps of assistants, sent
his classes through drills in funda-
mentals and team play. The major-
ity of the men reported for practice
two or three times a week and for
the iost part confined their time and
efforts to absorbing the principles
and fundamentals of the game. The
purpose of the classes has been to
offer a simple course in training to
those men who were not otherwise
engaged with other sports and afford
to prospective football candidates an
opportunity for receiving expert in-
dividual advice and attention.
The system of spring training is of
value to the coaching staff in that it
gives the mentors an excellent chance
to become acquainted with the new
men and to make a general observa-
tion of the men in action and so be
in a better position t make final
selections of the mor promising
material to be invited b k for early
training in the fall. This year's train-
ing sessions have been of material
benefit to the coaches in this way
and through the medium of these ses-
sions, they have been 'able to dis-
cern the men upon whom they will
devote time during the coming year.
Little Has Able Assistants
Coach Little is high in hi praie
of the group of men who volunteered
their services as assistants. Besides
the rgular coaches, Tad Weiman,
Varsity line coach, and Dick Barker,
assistant freshman coach, Little had
worklg under him Stan Muirhead,
Varsity tackle for three years, who
was ont throughout most of the spring
training season. Other men w'ho were
out tc* help at various times during:
the season were Slaughter, Varsity
linesman, Hawkins, another Varsity
linesman, Steele, Varsity guard, Tod
Rockwell, Varsity quarterback, and se-
veral physical education students am-
ong whom were Henderson, Donnelly,
and wall.
Invitations for participation in ear-
ly training will be sent out either
late in July or early in August. These
invitations will be sent to 63 men and
work for these men will begin the
morning of September 15. That a man
does not receive one of the invitations
is no sign however that he stands no
chance to make the Varsity squad.
\Many Promising Candidates
Spring rtaining classes this year
produced a number of men who show-
ed real promise of developing into
Varsity material. Among these men
are Edwards a 185 pound guard, Hall
an Ann Arbor high product who plays
In the line, Sampson, a lanky tackle, I
McIntrye, a husky center, Langeth,
an end, Ulman,a heavy guard. Haw-
kins and Slaughter, both Varsity
men, worked out with these linesmen.
Among the backs were Hoffman and
Domhoff, freshman quarterbacks,
Brackenberry, Friedman, Garber, and
Herrick, half-backs. In a group who
might be designated as special men,
were Madson, a 190 pound center of
last season's yearling team, Grube,
Rockwell, Parker, Varsity backs, and
Domhoffnand Stamin, freshman backs.
'these men put in most of their time
in passing and kicking.

Leshinsky Does Be4t Time of Season
On Ferry Field As He Runs
220 In 21 1-5
Michigan Varsity and Freshman
track teams went. through a hard
workout yesterday afternoon in be-
ginning their final week of prepara-
tion for the Olympic tryouts. Between
15 and 20 members of the two squads
will enter the trials next Friday and
Saturday afternoons on Ferry Field.'
Lehisky Runts Fast 200
The feature of the day came when
Vick Leshinsky, freshman sprinter ran
a heat of the 220 yard dash in 21 1-5,
Iwithin 2-5 of a second of the world's
record in the event and making the
best time of the season for the Ferry
field. track. As a result of the time
made yesterday and the form which{
he has shown all winter he will be
regarded as a likely winner of the(
furlong in the coming trials and vill
be likely to place high in the final
Olympic tryouts later on at Boston.
Other members of the two squadsl
who will enter the tryouts also went
through a hard workout yesterday.
Loomis went through a heat of the
quarter mile hurdles in :58 2-5 and
although he has done better before
will be likely to make the going hard
'for other entries in the 400 metre
'event this week-end. Stew Hulse who
has been out of the running all sea-
son because of a badly pulled ten-
don also took a light workout yester-
day and will probably be in condition
for the trials. Snyder will be another

Chicago, May 26.-By A.P.)-After
dropping the first set Goodwillie and
Dubach, University of Illinois, today
overwhelmed the University of Iowa
team, Swinson and Lutz, in the finals
of the doubles competition of the Wes-
tern Conference tennis tournament at
the University of Chicago courts, win-
ning the title, 2-6, 6-4, 6-2, 6-2.
Ed Wilson, University of Chicago,
won the tennis singles defeating Sag-
alowsky, Butler, 3-6, 7-5, 6-3, 8-6. Wil-
son's hard driving and wearing down
tactics greatly aided him.
Danny Frush, one time aspirant to
the featherweight crown then worn
by Johnny Kilbane, has signed to
battle Eugene Criqui, the man who
finally turned the trick of dropping
Kilbane. They're to meet in Paris.
Both hope to land a light.
Is it because the U. S. boys have it
doped out that Georges Carpentier is
now soft picking that they are rushing
to get bouts with him? Or is it be-
cause they feel they can get a bigger
handout for a scrap with him than
with any other man outside of Jack
Wally Schang, main catcher of the
New York Yankees, is in his twelfth
season as a big league backstop. He
has caught well over 100 games every
one of the eleven seasons up to tbis
year, with the exception of three, when
he was behind the plate in over 70.
Tommy Gibons still has a fair claim
to the right to meet Dempsey. His
15-round affair with the champ at
Shelby entitles him to consideration
in a way. He's the only gent who has
ever stayed the limit with the king
since Dempsey ascended the throne. It
doesn't seem as though Tom would be
eager to take on Carp, in that case.
If he figured the Frenchman stood
a chance of (lumping him. And yet
there's the big purse awaiting him for
such a battle.
"Kid" McCoy, fighter, lover, evan-
glist and optimist, has just turned
sleuth. He has just been appointed
chief investigator for an oil company
in Los Angeles. All he has to do is
to track down all the naughty folk WVho
try to fleece the oil company.
