FIRST BASEMEN NEEDED
Perhaps the smallest number of
freshman baseball aspirants in re-
cent history of baseball at Michi-
gan has reported for daily practice
this season. The gleam of hope
shining through the rather gloomy
fact that only 30 freshmen turned
out after the first call for candi-
dates lies in the fact that with few
exceptions all of the positions on
the yearling nine will probably be
filled with men of a more than
usual calibre.
Fourteen candidates reported for
a chance to fill the pitching as-
signments on the nine and accord-
ing to early signs several of these
men show plenty of promise. In
contrast to the wealth of hurling
material, there was only one catch-
er who reported for action every,
'afternoon during the week. When
the full number of freshmen who
signed up for this position actually'
take part in the practice sessions,
Coach Blott expects to be able to1
pick several good backstops.
First Basemen Only Mediocre

Marking the first step in the rise
of boxing to a place in Michigan 's
athletic program, last night's card
well satisfied the spectators, fur-
nishing them with exhibitions of
clever boxing and fast fighting.
Beer's bloody appearance1
caused his seconds to pull' him
out at the start of the second
round and give the welter-
weight bout to Steve Borovich
on a technical K. O. After a
poor start, with Borovich get-
ting over several hard punches
to his face, Beer cane back
in the second round and show-
ed a definite superiority over
his opponent. His damaged
face, however, cost him the
bout in not allowing him to
continue.
The best bout of the evening was
easily the heavyweight go between
Morgan and Auer. After being
pushed around the ring in the
first round of the bout Morgan
showed unexpected spirit and
tore into Auer with a vim that.
very soon reduced Auer's thirty'
pound advantage to nothing. Auer
couldn't move his bulk fast enough
to avoid Morgan's punches to his,
chin and in .the last of the fast!
three rounds it even looked as!
though Morgan would score a
knockout. Although Auer was
tough enough to withstand thel
Toledo boy's hard punching he
lost the bout by a wide margin..

slow first round during which
Stein's wrist wrappings 'came loose,
ithe pair suddenly showed real pep
and finished the final two rounds
with fast fighting. Evelyth, short
land stocky, managed to g'et inside
the long rangy Stein and hammer-
ed him at every chane. Stein's
leads were effective in stoppling
Evelyth at long range. The A
Arbor boy gained a clobe decisi
over Stein in which one judge dis-
agreed.
The crosest bout of the eve-
ning Was in the lightweight
dass 'when Heim lost to MWo'd-
* ward with referees disagreeing.
I eim seemned to be able to hit
hard b-it Wo6dward's left and
superior infighting gave. him
the necessary edge. These two
opposed each other in the title
match two years ago. All three
of the 'rounds were very close
and it was difficult fronrt the
spectators' point of view to tell
i which had the advantage.
The middle weight event found
Ryerson definitely superior over
Russel Hobart, brother of the de-
feated light-heivyweight. In spite
of Russ Hobart's good right Ryer-
son fought the faster and had lit-
tle trouble in maintaining his edge
over the Detroit lad throughout
the entire rounds.
The bantamweight event con-
tained two good boxers who
failed to produce any excite-
atent for the crowd. Boxing
carefully and too slowly, with
only occasional bursts of supe-
riority, McBride gained the de-
cision over Jerry Currey, who
slbstituted for Marty. Reeker
at the last minute.

teams from 33 states will compete
in the University of Chicago's
eleventh annual national inter-
scholastic basketball tournament,

Gilbert Otto proved himself
to be the most natural fighter
of the evening in winnitg de-
cisively over Larry Hobart in
the lightheavy division. From
the gong Otto was the master
and handled himself with a
grace that was not surpassed
by any other boxer on the pro-
gram. Of all the men in Phil-
bin's stabe Otto seems to work
with: the least effort.
Among the lighter classes the
Stein-Evelyth bout in the feather-

spectators. After an unusually
