Exceptional Ability In Dual

TITLE WON 00 YEARS
The Conference tennis cham-
pionship, evidently an odd year vis-
itor to the camp of the Wolverine,
returned to Michigan in the guise
of deadlock with Chicago for Big
Ten team honors when rain halt-
ed the match between the two
teams yesterday on the Ferry field
courts. Michigan topped the Big
Ten teams on the court in 1925,
1927, and again this year to keep
the progression symmetrical.
A most successful season was en-
joyed by the Courtwright coached
outfit this year. With three veter-
ans returning in Barton, Schaeffer,
and Moore, and virtually a fourth
in Bacon, AMA winner in 192, and
a host of material, most promising
of whom consisted of ' Spencer,
Hammer, and Beal, the Wolverines
were early season favorites to an-
nex Conference team honors.
Win Opener
In the Conference opener, North-
western fell before the powerful]
Michigan net contingent a 9-0 vic-
tim on the Evanston courts. The
Wolverines though handicapped by
a lack of outdoor play showed
marked superiority to their Wildcat
opponents in every match.
A powerful Drake University
tennis team lost a 5-1 match to the
Michigan netmen in the first non
conference encounter of the season.
Brody playing in the number one!
position for the Iowans turned in a
surprise win over the Michigan
captain, Barton, for the only Drake
counter.
Continuing their winning ways
Michigan turned in her second
whitewash win over a Conference
rival in. humbling Indiana, 9-0, on
the Ferry field courts. Captain
barton in turning in a 6-2, ยข-1
win over the Hoosier veteran
Quinn, proved the star for Michi-
gan.
Beat Gophers
Minnesota,boasting;one of the
strongest court squads in the Con-
fprence, proved a third victim of a
well balanced Michigan team on
the Ann Arbor clay by a 7-1 score.
Stew Cornell, Minnesota's ace,
turned in the only win for the'
Gophers in winning over Bartons in
the first singles. In the second
doubles the play was called with
the score at 4 all in the third set,
on account of darkness.
Journeying to the lair of the
Buckeyes on the following day the
Wolverines were rained out in their
scheduled match with the Ohioans
at Columbus. A week later a re-
venge-seeking Wolverine team
again was forced to return to Ann
arbor empty handed after the
match carded with Illinois at Ur-
bana had been called off because
of rain.
Unable to enter any men in the'
singles of the Conference tourney
at Columbus, Barton and Hammer
proved their ability as competitors
in advancing to the finals of the
doubles competition. In the finals
only the remarkable'play of George
Lott, of Chicago, paired with Calla-'
han, turned the Michiganders back
in the fifth and deciding set of the
match.
Determined to bring a Confer-
ence tennis team title to Ann Ar-
bor Michigan's netmen gained a
3-2 advantage over Chicago in the
all important match at Ann Arbor
before rain interrupted proceedings
and ended whatever chance the

Wolverines had to axnex a clear
cut claim to Conference team su-
premacy.
Wisconsin's eight will be the Big
Ten's only representative at the
Poughkeepsie regatta this year.

Sigma Delta Psi

Year

BI TEN STANDINGS OLVEINE TRACKMEN

As a climax to the activities of
the year, Sigma Delta Psi, nationalj
honorary athletic fraternity, held
its first annual banquet last night
at the Union. Awards were pre-
sented to Charles Grace for mak-
ing the best individual record for
the year in passing the tests and to]
Delta Sigma Phi for having the
most ment of any fraternity on the
campus to pass the tests.
In the absence of Dr. George
May, president of the local chap-
ter, Paul Washke of the intra-
mural department was toastmaster
and presented the awards which
were in the shape of silver loving
cups. Prof. Elmer D. Mitchell of
the physical education department
and secretary-treasurer of the lo-
cal chapter gave a brief summary'
of the activities and pointed out
that ths was the most successful
year of the fraternity's existence,
on the campus.

Ketz And Tolan Are Sure Entries
In National Track Meet To
Be Held At Chicago
OTHERS TO BE CHOSENI
Well pleased with the showing
which his men made in finishing
third in the fast competition of the
Western Conference track meet,
Coach Steve Farrell is now start-
ing work with the few men whom
he feels will have a chance to place
in the National meet to be held'
soon at Chicago.
Two men from the Wolverine
squad are sure to go to this meet,
Eddie Tolan, who is now seeking to
have his mark of 9.5 recognized as
a new world record in the 100 yard
dash, and Captain Wilfred Ketz
will be able to show well in any
competition.
Tolan has a strong rival in Simp-
son of Ohio State, but if he can
run another century in 9.5, he
should not have difficulty in cop-
ping the National title. Ketz with
a throw of 165 feet 10 inches to his
credit, made in the Iowa meet this
year', ranks as one of the two out-
standing hammer throwers in the
country, and should win this event
unless Black of Maine State, who

As a result of a severe batting
slump on the recent road' tripo
Michigan's team average fell con-
siderably, dropping from .267 to

Harvey Straub retained the lead-
ership among the regulars, al-
though his percentage fell from .462
to .348. Fred Asbeck leads all the
players at bat with .455, although
he has only taken part in three
of the seven Conference games.
Louis Weintraub is the only other
Wolverine batting over .300, hav-
ing a mark of .323. On the road trip
he connected safely in five out of

Wolverine Get Pitching But Batters
Are Weak; Asbeck To Face
Wisconsin Thursday
BREAKS AID IN DEFEATS
Weakness in batting strength was
the cause of the two disastrous de-
feats that the Michigan baseball
team suffered on her recent trip ac-
cording to the statement of Coach
Ray Fisher.As a result of this fall-
ing off in hitting ability the team
staged a prolonged batting drill
yesterday.
Michigan's pitchers have been
turning in creditable performances
throughout the entire season, but
the lack of ability to drive count-
ers across the plate makes it neces-
sary for the hurler to limit the op-
position to one or two runs in
every game.I
In an attempt to turn the tables on
the strong Badger aggregation that
meets the Wolverines on Decora-
tion Day, Fred Asbeck will be sent
to the mound. Asbeck has been
turning in an excellent brand of
hurling all during the season, and
should prove effective against the
Wisconsin batters.
Should Michigan whip the Bad-
gers Thursday, and they have an

excellent chance to turn the trick,
they will stand an even chance for
the Big Ten title. Following the
Wisconsin game there is only Ohio
State to be met. The Buckeyes
have not been getting far this sea-
son and are now near the bottom
of the Conference standings.
Coach Fisher attributed the loss
of both of last week's games to bad
breaks. In the Illinois game, with
the score standing at 2 to 2, an
Illinoisbatter sent a screaming
triple to the outfield. A runner on
the sacks who tried to score on the
hit was called out at the plate
by the umpire. Immediately the
Illinihplayers disputed the decision
and, contrary to baseball ruling,
the umpire, after some deliberation
reversed his decision.
On another occasion in the Illi-
nois contest, Truskowski sent a
hard hit ball in the direction of
the box. The Illinois pitcher, in an
attempt to dodge the ball, was hit
on the shoulder and the hit was
held to a single. Had the pitcher
succeeded in dodging the ball it
would have gone for at least a
double and would have won the
ball game for the Wolverines.
A bad bounce on a grounder to
