Tompkins, ordinarily an out-
fielder, has been listed this year as
a pitcher. In this shifting of theI
Michigan star to the mound mayI
rest the solution to Coach Fisher's
most serious problem-the twirling
situation-in the building of ar
championslhip nine. Last season
Jack, although a regular figure in
Michigan's outer garden, saw con-
siderable service on the mound as
a relief hurler, in which role he
proved most effective. Even though
the Wolverine star made a good
appearance as a pitcher, Coach
Fisher decided that the team was
more in need of his services at the
plate, where he is a tower of
strength, and consequently he wasI
placed in center field, at which post
he proved himself to be an out--
standing fielder as well as a good
Will Fill Two Posts.
This year if Tompkins turns out
to be the mainstay of the pitching
staff, he will probably be assisted
in bearing the burdens by Compton,
a member of the 1930 twirling
staff. The Michigan captain, who
is only a junior on the campus and
playing his second year as a mem-
ber of the Varsity nine, will be used
at his old post in center on the
days that he is not shoving them
past the batter. Tompkins started
the year behind the other pitchers
as he has been playing goal on
the Varsity hockey team which has
just closed its season.I

Tomorrow afternoon the first I
events of a telegraphic track meetN
which is to be held with the Uni-;
versity of Illinois yearling team thisI
week will be run off by Coacht
Doherty's freshman thinclads in
Yost field house. The mile relay
and the mile run will be the first l
events to be recorded.
Indications point to a close af-
fair between the two teams, Coach
Doherty said yesterday, with either
team taking the winner's honors by
a matter of a few points. The Illini
yearlings took a beating at the
hands of the strong Wisconsin team
last week, 50 to 45, but their per-
formance in this meet compared
favorably for them in regard to
that which is expected of the Maize /
and Blue team.
Events on the schedule for Thurs-
day include the dashes, broad jump,
35-pound weight, and the 880-yard
run. The high and low hurdles,
440-yard run, 2 mile, high jump,
pole vault and shot put will con-
