LOSS OF GEORGE PIPGRAS CAUSES
MUCH WORRY TO BOSS M'CARTHY
Manager Joe McCarthy of the
New York Yankees assumed a real:
burden when he agreed to replace
Bob Shawkey as pilot of theI
Gotham clan in the race for theI
1931 American League pennant.
Not only is he face to face with
the task of bringing the Yanks
back to their former position in:
the league by winning the pennanty
in his first year, but he also is
confronted with the task of re-
building the pitching staff that
crumbled so badly last season.
McCarthy could only bank upon
one or two hurlers to do regular .
duty as it should be done, with his
main hopes being centered on
George Pipgras, ace of the Yankee
mound corps in 1930. And then.
just before the start of the train
ing season, Pipgras suffered an
acute attack of appendicitis and
was taken to a hospital to be oper- :

LENFESTY RECOGNIZED AS STAR
IN WINDY CITY GOLFING CIRCLES
(Editors note: This is the fourth
of a series of articles dealing with
members of the Varsity golf team.)
Jack Lenfesty, who gained con-
siderable fame for himself digging
divots on the Varsity golf team last
spring, has long been recognized as
a conspicuous contender for golf-
ing honors in the Chicago district.
Although Jack hasn't managed to
break into the "big money' class
in the larger tournaments, he has
on several occasions fought his way
into the semi-finals, and bids fair
eliminated in the semi-finals of the
Chicago City tournament, 2-1, and
in the qu4rter-finals of the West-
ern Junior, 3-2.
Loses at Indianwood.
Several invitational tournaments
in the Chicago district fell before
his masterful stroke last year, but
he ran into his old jinx again and
lost out in the later rounds of the
bigger meets. In the Western Open
at Indianwood his 54 hole total of
232 eliminated him by one stroke
FISHER PINS* HOPES

of Varsity Attack.
All the members of the baseball
squad being accounted for with the
appearance of Daniels last week,
Coach Ray Fisher is continuing
with strenuous daily practice ses-
sions in the field house. Batting
practice is still being stressed by
cago, where Coach Matt Mann will
attempt to guide them on their
way to a national title to add to
their already brilliant record of a
Big Ten championship.
Michigan's big threats will be in
the breaststroke, the medley relay,
and the 400-yard relay. If the
Maize and Blue representatives can
take first places in these events
they will just about cinch the title,
for a second or third place here
and there in the 50-yard sprints,
the 440, the 220, anct the free style
are almost certainties with the
aggregation of star natators that
Coach Mann is taking to the
Johnny Schmieler, holder of the
worldrecord in the 200-yard breast
stroke, is a favorite to take that
event, for his mark of 2:31.4 has
not been approached. Ted Moles,
Princeton star and former holder
of the collegiate mark of 2:34, has
not been entered, thus eliminating
one of the outstanding competitors
for the title. Illness has kept Moles
from entering. Schmieler's opposi-
tion will come from aspirants as
new as himself in Harms of Ford-
ham, West of Princeton, Evans of
Iowa, and Kruger of Minnesota.
The middle, west is also favored
to cop the backstroke for Lowell
Marsh, Minnesota ace, who holds
the Big Ten record at 1:43, holds
the top position with the an-
nouncement that George Kojac of
Rutgers has not been entered in
the event. Kojac has been swim-
ming the 100 and the 220 in the
past few meets this season. Two
other Eastern men who will make
a bid for this title are Ed Scherer
and Bob Long, both of Princeton.
Fancy diving competition seems,
to be a place where Michigan will
not shine, for four of the winners
of the event last year are again
entered. These include Lobdell of
Iowa, winner of the Big Ten title,
Mickey Riley of Southern Califor-
nia, holder of the A. A. U. diving
crown, Jack Fisher of Springfield,
and Walter Grandy of Penn. Walter
Nappa of Minnesota who took a
sixth place last year is also enter-1
Free Style Strong.
Michigan's quartet of free styleI
natators, Ladd, Klintworth, Marcus,
and Fenske will provide plenty of
opposition for the other entries in
the 100, 50 and 220-yard free style
sprints, but none of them are good
for a first place in these events.
Smith is also favored to place high'
in the 100-yard event, for he copped
a fourth in' the meet last year.f
Other sprint stars who will be comL
peting include Kojac, who is the
favorite in both the 100 and the
220, and Wilson of Northwestern.
Schmieler looks good for a second
place 'in the 220.
Kennedy will be Coach Mann's
best bet in the 440, but will find
some tough opposition in AustinI
Clapp, Stanford middle distaneb
star, and Buster Crabbe of South-
ern California. Crabbe is the A. A.
U. 440 crawl champion. The Michi-
gan entry looks good for a second
place in this event.

TAMPA, Fla., Mar. 25.-()-Re-

offered $40,000 for Chick Hafey,
holdout outfielder of the St. Louis
Cardinals, were discounted here to-
day. In the absence of Sidney Weil,
president, the report could not be
confirmed, but Manager Howley
said he doubted that Weil would

several weeks, even though he is
recovering rapidly from the -opera-

back he will take some time to get

that it will likely be mid-season
before the Yankee ace can operate
with his full effectiveness.
Meanwhile McCarthy will be

of them mediocre pitchers, to assist

to Work in Field House.
About 12 or 15 freshmen have be-

Coach Oosterbaan said yesterday.
Workouts have been held daily
since Monday. So far the men have
engaged only in limbering-up ex-

so no estimate of available talent
can be made this early.
The fielders and the remainder
of the squad will not be assembled
for practice before Spring vacation.
They will be asked to report im-
