With a wealth of material return-

and a single, while O'Doul had

two singles and a double.

Last season Herman slugged .393.
O'Doul's hitting was 10 points less.
However, Bill Terry, first baseman
of the Giants, beat both men out.
But they forced Terry up to .401.
Now Seek Pennant.
The merging of O'Doul's hitting
with that of other potent Dodgers
has the club in a pennant frame of
mind. Last season the Dodgers were
in the running most of the way
with no regular left fielder. Rube
Bressler, Harvey Hendrick, Eddie
Moore, and Ike Boone all were
plugged in the hole, but none
seemed to fit.
None anywhere near approached
the slugging mark of O'Doul, who
will be in there this year.
Lefty, along with Fresco Thomp-
son, second baseman, came to the
Dodgers in a trade that sent Jim
Elliott, Clise Dudley, Hal Lee and
cash to the Phillies.
The major leagues of baseball
will be swinging into action before
not so many more weeks have gone
by and then the country will ring
with the arguments pro and con for
every fan's favorite team or teams
in the pennant races.

Weather Permitting, Michigan's
Cinder Squad Will Drill
on Field Monday.
Michigan's thinclads will take to
the outdoor track at Ferry. Field
for their Monday afternoon prac-
tice if the state of the weather and
the condition of the track satisfy
Coach Chuck Hoyt that an outdoor
workout would not be something in
the nature of a swimming meet or
a polar expedition. Conditions pre-
vailing at present would be unsatis-
factory, however.
All members of the squad, with
the exception of the weight men,
have had a layoff this week, as is
customary following the final in-
door meet of the year-this year,
the Cornell meet held last Satur-
day. The men in the weight events
have been assigned to light work-
outs, while the whole squad will
turn out Monday if the weather-
man and Coach Hoyt agree.
The Wolverines want to get to
work on Ferry Field as soon as pos-
sible so that they may get into the
best of shape for their outdoor cin-
der schedule which will start April
24 with the Drake Relays held at
Des Moines, Iowa.

Michigan Golf Team
Practices on Driving
Michigan's Varsity golfers will
get out on the links as soon as the
weather conditions permit. At pres-
ent the members of the squad are
practicing up on their drives int
the net in the Intramural building.
With practically the entire squad1
back from last season the Wolver-
ines should make a better showingE
on the links than they did a year
ago. The four regulars on the team
Hicks, Lenfesty, Howard, and Cap-
tain Royston are practicing indoors
and should be in right in the swing
of things when they get outdoors.
Hicks was beaten out in the race
for individual Conference cham-
pionship by a lone stroke in last
year's meet, and the Wolves were
only five strokes behind the teamI
