PUNT DEFENCE DRILLED
Michigan's 1930 spring footballj
showed initial signs of real earnest-j
ness yesterday afternoon on South
Ferry Field when Coach Harry
Kipke ran his gridiron candidates
through a prolonged drill.
Bill Hewitt, veteran wingman,
proved the first casualty of te
spring grind, suffering a broken
nose in the first half hour of run-
ning plays through scrimmage. The
burly letterman was the victim of
an accidental thrust of the elbow
on the, part of O'Neil, halfback can-
didate.
Run .lays From Scrimmage.
The session which was inau-
gurated after the usual quarter of
an hour of limbering up exercises
saw Coach Kipke run plays, alter-
nating cross bucks, reverse thrusts
and lateral passes for the first time
this spring from scrimmage.
Neuman, stocky Detroit North-
ern product was the outstanding
ball carrier of the afternoon, con-
sistently showing ability to weave
through a mass of players for five
yard gains. LaJeunesse, Eastman,
and Kerkowitz were others to
show ground gaining ways from
scrimmage. 0
Cappon Works With Group.
While Coach Kipke was supervis-
ing the first scimmage of the
year, Coach Cappon took another
group of the 55 odd candidates to
a corner of the field and spent over
an hour in the tutelage of punt de-
fense.
With the day's rest supplied by
the sabbath after the first scrim-'
mage the Wolverine grid mentorsl
plan intensive play scrimmage and
fundamental instruction to pre-
pare for the regular spring cohmdi-'
tioning which will be enacted after
the Easter interval.
Hewitt, whose nose injury does
not appear to be of a serious na-
ture, will nevertheless probably re-
frain from further spring play.

were odds on favorites to repeat
their conquest of last year. The
Philadelphia team was quoted at
odds of 5 to 2.
The lowly Boston Red Sox
might as well turn to some
other sport as far as Wall
Street is concerned, the Bean-
caters being 100 to 1 in the
odds. Chicago's Cubs are at 6
to 5 in the National League
with the New York Giants at
5 to 2. Now that the pennant
!rase .is all settled the athletes
can rest during the summer.
Jack Gagnon recently jolted the
boxing dopesters by knocking the
redoubtable Tuffy Griffiths out in
a bout at Philadelphia. Griffiths
was being groomed for the position
as the leading contender for the
United States in this present
heavyweight struggle, and his de-
feat by Gagnon rather throws the
situation in a muddle. All the
critics agree that it wouldn't hap-
pen again, and on the strength of
this a rematch is being sought.
Let's hope the experts aren't
thrown all out of gear by anothert
such upset.
Bill Tilden is barnstorming
around the uropean continent
at the present time. Perhaps!
Bill is trying to determine for
himself wihether le is still ca-
pable of taking care of him-1
self in iajor lea 'e tennis cir-
a'.es, or perhaps he is merely
,conditioning himself for a try
at the Davis Cup again. At any
rate he is faring very well in
Europe and at time shows pro-,
longed streaks of his old time
form. However his qpponents
for the most part have been
lesser lights.

BIDS ISSUED FOR I
HIGH SCHOOL MEET
Interscholastic Heads Send 1000
Invitations to Prep Schools
to Enter Track Event.
IS THIRTIETH TOURNEY
Over 1,000 invitations to high
schools in 17 states were mailed
yesterday afternoon for the thir-
tieth annual Ulniversity of Michi-
gan outdoor track and field meet
( according to Karl G. Kempf, man-
ager of interscholastics.
The coming meet, the last one
of the current year on the inter-
scholastic card, is scheduled for
May 14 and 15. Michigan's high
( school track meets both indoor and
outdoor have been known far and
wide in interscholastic' circles as
' attracting the best of prep school
athletes in the Midwest along with
'a few of the outstanding perform-
ers of high school fame many
Miles away from Ann Arbor.
With fourteen events on the pop-
ular card and a host of individual
champions returning to defend
their honorshas virtually assured
this year's meet to be one of the
most colorful in years. Last year's
t meet was won in impressive fash-
ion by Detroit' Northwestern high
school. This meet again will see the
Colts in the role of title defenders.
The interscholastic department
is especially desirous of the most
thorough cooperation of the frater-
nities in their housing assistance
and, Manager Kempf states, "Any
suggestions concerning this prob-
lem will be gratefully accepted."
