Facing the problem of replacing
10 lettermen from last year's Big
Ten championship baseball team,
Coach Ray Fisher has inaugurat-
ed practice for the batterymen in
an effort to whip a formidable nine
in shape for the opening of the
season on April 12.
Harvey Straub, right fielder and
captain of this year's team, Myron,
Who will probably hold down the
short stop berth, and Truskowski,
regular receiver on last year's nine,
are the only lettermen returning
for, action -this year. Four of last
year's outfit, McAfee, Asbeck, Cor-
riden, and Nebelung, have signed
contracts to play for big league
clubs during the coming campaign.
Fisher Drills Pitchers.
At the present time there are ap-
proximately 15 pitchers working
out In the cage at Yost Field house
under the direction of Coach Ray
Fisher, while seven or eight catch-
ers complete the list of those who
will report before the first of
March, when the whole squad will
report for drill. Coach Fisher is
looking for Montague to be the
mainstay of -the Michigan team in
the box, although it is a little early
to make any predictions. Folger,
another reserve of last year's team,
has been declared ineligible be-
r' use of scholastic difficulties.
Several promising members of
yast year's freshman team have
reported to Coach Fisher and show,
some promise of winning Varsity
b5rths. Crouch, who starred in the
box for the yearlings last season,
Will stand a good chance of making
a n4ane for himself in Varsity com-
petition if he can get through his
studies successfully. McNeal and
Tompkins, other yearling boxmen,
are also expected to develop into
capable hurlers.
Southern Trip Shedued.
Little is known as yet as to the
abilities of other newcomers to the
battery brigade, but the wheat
should be separated from the chaff
by the time that the remainder of
the team reports for practice.
The Wolverines' schedile for the
coming season includes 28 games,
12 of them with Conference op-
ponnts. Michiganl will Meet North-
western, Ohio State, Illinois, Pur-
due,. Wisconsin, and Chicago in
home and hoie series to complete
its >ig Ten schedule. In addition
to these Conference games the
Wolverines will again make a
Southern trip which will include
two games apiece with Vanderbilt,
Georgia, and Camp Benning, and
a single encounter with Cincin-
nati. The Cincinnati team will
play a return game with the Wo-
verines at Ann Arbor on May 28,
this being the first time that it
has ever journeyed to the Michi-
gan stronghold for a baseball game.
Syracuse University will appear
here for two games on April 25 and
26 and Michigan will travel to
Hamilton, New York, for a two
game series with Colgate o May
1 and 2. In addition to these new
opponents, the Wolverines have
scheduled a game with Oberlin,to
be played in Ann Arbor on May 22.

MICHIGAN HOCKEY
TEAM PRACTICES,
TO FACEGOPHERS'
With the two game series with
Minnesota slated for the end of this
week the Michigan ice squad is get-
ting down to some ,of the hardest
practice of the season. Coach Low-+
rey has been drilling the squad on
some of the fine points of the game
with the intent of taking both gam-
es from the Gophers. Michigan
has only had one win in the last
three years of competition with the
big sextet from Minnesota, but this
year Lowrey feels that the Wolves
should take both games.
As the season rounds out it has
been shown that the present team
is one of the best in the history of
hockey at lichigan. The last few!
performnances turfed in hai sve Prov-
ed that Lowrey has found a coin-
bination that is a tough one to
beat. Tompkins has at last learn-
ed how to reach for the hard ones
and his goal will 'be a taboo for the
hard skating Gopher crew. Larigen
is at tie top ef his form and his,
direct shots ceme. in to the, net
like bullets. Hart, Bryant, Courtis,
and Neigard are all in good shape
and will complete the sextet that
will take to the ice Friday night.
No injuries have been received late-
ly and a flashy exhibition of skates
and stick handling will feature the
opening game.
Minnesota tnis time invades the
Wolverine rink with a strong team
bf veteran players. The Gophers
have been fortunate in having ten
of the best men from last year,
again on the ice and the formida-
ble record that they have hung up
so far this year proves that they
will be one of the hardest teams
that the Michigan sextet will face
in the Big Ten Competition. Coach
Lowrey announced this week that
he expected that they, would prove;
to be one of the most important
rivals on the Wolverine schedule.
Rushhorn will be ai'ded by Sid
Rankin of Windsor in officiating at
both of these games.
BIG TEN STANINGS

ker's cohorts handed them earlier
in the season will play host to the
Wolverines Saturday night, but if
form shown in their past two
games may be used as a criterion,
they will do their utmost to make
tie Michigan stay in Bloomington
unpleasant.
Against Ohio State and North-
western last week. the Hoosiers ap-
peared to be riding on top of a
wave which may carry them into
consideration for title honors if
they are not stopped. Coach Veen-
ker and Franklin Cappon who
scouted the Indiana play last week'
report that they are showing the
best form of the season and will
probably prove very dangerous.
In an attempt to stem the Hoos-
ier tide, the Wolverine mentor
spent last night in drilling his pro-
teges in new formations which this
Saturday's opponents have not
seen, and in initiating the Maize
and Blue quintet into the mysteries
of the Indiana offense.
While Coach Veenker worked
with his regular combination on
their own offensive plays, Coach
Cappon taught Weiss, Ricketts,
Hudson, and Justice the tricks
which the Hoosiers used in theirl
last two games. Later in the prac-
tice session this combination work-
ed these playsagainst the Varsity,
sand while the regulars for the most
part stopped the new formation
well, the business like way in which
the Hoosiers go about garnering
points may make the same plays
look different.
A book which Coach Veenker hass
had published "Basketball for
Coaches and Players" has already
r'eached the second edition. This
work includes a complete discourse
on the game and is illustrated by
34 diagrams and 12 pictures. The
>rominence which Coach Veenker
┬░njoyed after piloting the Wolves
to a tie with Wisconsin for the!
Western Conference championship
'ast season has made him an au-
thority on the cage game, and his
opinion is highly respected in
,2oaching circles.

New Semester Eligibility Aids
Coach Johnstone's Squad
at Opportune Time.
TO MEET TITLE-HOLDERS
With the coming of the new se-
mester Coach Johnstone is an-
other Wolverine coach who has
found his squad considerably
strengthened by the adition of vet-
eran material which had been un-
available prior to this time because
of ineligibility. This new power
comes to the Wolverine fencers at a
most opportune time with the hard-
est match of the season against
Illinois scheduled for Saturday
afternoon.
Lazar to Compete.
Lazar, last year's captain and
one of the outstanding performers
at the all-conference meet, will be
eligible to compete in this meet.
It is expected.that he will be enter-
ed in the foils bouts although his
versatility renders him, almost
equally available for the epee
events. Judging from present per-
formances the other two men who
will compete in the foils will be
Captain Stolpman and Friedman
who showed well against the Spar-
tan fencers in the only meet the
l Wolverines have had so far this

field of sports. Helen Teague is a regular forward on a Chicago basketball team. Sonja Henie holds the
world's championship for figure skating, while Barbara Bethwick holds several swimming records and

Indiana Wrestlers1
to Oppose Michigan
Indiana, chief contender to the
crown of Western Conference
wrestling champion, now held by
the Wolverines, will furnish the
next opposition for Coach Keen's
men when the two squads mix this
Saturday. The Hoosiers have won
six straight meets this year, one
from Purdue by the same over-
whelming score thA IMichigan
swamped the Boilermakers 30-0.
However, Coach Keen feels that
the improvement shown by his men
in both meets and practice entitles
them to more than an even break
in predictions. These hopes have
been materially strengthened -by
the advent of Kirimura to the
squad. +
The diminutive Jap mat star will
furnish strong opposition to the
men in the 118 pound division.-

olf ers Anticipate
pring Season Play
With the winter season almost
at a close and mutterings of spring!
already in the air golfdom stands,
at ease to gather breath for the
next few rounds. Gene Sarazen
comes out of the frost time fracas
with $10,000 to his , credit, more
than any other pro. Denny Shute;
however, stands as the outstanding
golfer of the winter season with
Horton Smith running him a -close
second. In all. of the Pacific Coast
tourneys Shute, the young prc
from Ohio, lived up to his name
and put the ball where it was sup-
posed to go to make him the win-
ner of two major tournaments.
Youth will have its fling at the
expense of the old timers like
Hlagen, and speculation is rife, a:

power to show his usual oft proved

The return of Hammer to the
fencing squad also raises the hopes
of the Wolverine mentor in as
much as this man will probably be
able to compete as the second sa-
bre man. Gordon, who has been a
source of strength for the Michigan
team for two years and who took
second in the all-conference sabre
bouts last year, will be entered as
the rst man in this event against
the fllini.
So far no other members of the
squad have been able to displace
Dowsett and Koon from their holds
on the regular positions as the
Wolverine representatives in the
I epee- bouts. In as much as Lazar
1 will probably compete in the foils,
I these two men appear certain to
start in the meet Saturday.
