Racer iDives Miss England
at10349 Miles Per Hour
In Making Record.


BUENOS AIRES, Apr. 3.--(P)-A
new world's speed boat record was
hailed here today-103.49 statute
miles per hour, made by Kaye Don,
British racer, in Miss England II on
the surface of the muddy, swollen
Parana River yesterday afternoon.
The mark, which will be certified
to the Tnternational Racing Asso-
ciation. at Brussels by the Argen-
tine Yacht Club, which supervised
the timing, beats the record of
1U2256 miles per hour set recently
by' Gar Wood, at Miami Beach.
Leaves for England.
Don, happy at success in the ven-
ture which already has been at-
tended by failure in two attempts
due to-motor troubles, packed up
his boat and took the Andalucia
Star at midnight for England. He
did not await a banquet which was
planned for him here.f
Don proceeded to the course, a
lonely stretch of the Parana near
its confluence with the La Plata,
early yesterday and once yesterday
norning touched 100 miles an hour,

Youthful Tiger ManagerIs One
of Most Popular in Majors. .
Bucky Harris, who has put in
several rather disappointing years
as manager of the Detroit Tigers,f
once. again has hopes that his
charges will go someplace in the r
coming American League campaign1
and climb to the first division. But
this season, more than in any other
year since he took over the man-
age-ship of the club, his hopes ap-
pear to be based upon actual fact.
Detroi has added a host of new
outfielders who are being counted
upon strongly to strengthen that
division of the team's play and to
add a considerable amount of bat-.
ting punch to the Tigers in the : x
coming season. In addition to this ..... ......
the team has also strengthened its
catching department, and the hurl-
ing staff has improved greatly over
its showing of a year ago. Maybe
the hopes of Harris and the Tiger
fans are really based on actual'
facts this season, and the team is Bucky Harris

Hammer, Brace, Ryan, Clark
Favored to Win Matches
for Positions.
The Varsity racqueteers received
a layoff yesterday due to the wet
condition of the courts. Coach
Courtright did not evc:n cl a prac-
tice indoors, for it i- s policy
once outdoors, not to h further
indoor practices unless a protracted
spell of bad weather sets in.
The indoor workouts held during
the past three weeks, he explained,
were more for the purpose of exer-
cise than to develop form and tim-
ing of shots, since the peculiar,
skidding, low, bound of the ball in
the indoor game does not tend to
develop the proper timing for the
clay-court game; and there are
practically no indoor shots higher
than the shoulder.
To Play for Rankings.
Thursday's outdoor court excur-
sion was somewhat unsatisfactory
due to the soggy condition of the
clay, which certainly did not tend

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., April 3.
-(P)-Virnie Beatrice Mitchell-
Jackie when she's on the diamond
-has made a debut in organized
base ball that many masculine hur-
lers might envy. The only woman
pitcher in organized base ball
struck out Babe Ruth and Lou Geh-
rig in succession when the Chat-
tanooga Lookouts met the New
York Yankees, and then walked
Tony Lazzeri to complete her
mound duty. But a "catch" was
seen in the act when the Babe po-
litely tipped his hat as he came to
bat, swung wildly at a couple ofI
pitches that fans thought he might,
have hit easily, and let the thirdI
go past for a called strike.
Baseball Squad Will Practice
Outside Every Day It Is
at All Possible.
A well deserved rest after the 13
inning workout of Thursday after-
noon was the lot of the baseball
squad yesterday when wet weather
forced Coach Ray Fisher to keep
the men inside.
No real work was accomplished,
however, and the men were given
only a short limbering up workout
with a little batting practice in the
cages and some brushing up on
fielding work. Even the pitchers
were given a layoff, but it will not
last long as Fisher has announced,
that the squad will go outside today,
and every day from now on that it
is at all possible to work.
The practice game on Thursday
showed considerable polishing off
from that of Tuesday's affair, but
the m batters seemed to be making
short work of most of the pitchers
that went into the box. The out-
fielders, too, were far from acur-
te in their pegs to the bases, but
somne stiff workouts during the
eoiming week should get this down
to the fine points of the game be-
fore the squad leaves for the south.

Alex Jolly Appears
as Likedy Candidate
in Wolverine Golf
(Editors note: This is the seventh
of a series of articles dealing with'
candidates for the Varsity golf!
Among the most promising sopho-
more candidates for the position
left vacant by the illness of "Chub"
Hicks on this year's Varsity golf
team, is Alex Jolly, of Menominee,
Jolly spends the greater part of
the summer months trotting around
to various tournaments in the Up-
per Peninsula, although on several
occasions he has invaded the less
isolated regions to compete in the
Western Junior Championships and
a few others.
Wins Three Titles.
Last summer while cavorting a-
round the fairways in the Upper
Peninsula, Jolly annexed three ti-
tles and gained the distinction of
being the second low amateur in
the U. P. Pro-Amateur tourney with
a grand 72 hole total of 311. Both
the Upper Peninsula Invitational
and the U. P. Amateur Open fell
under the spell of his mashie, nib-
lic, et al. In the first of these, held
at Sault St. Marie, he defeated Dr.
Boyce in the final round after cap-
turing the qualifying medal. In the
latter, held at Ironwood, he manag-
ed to annex the title by virtue of a
5-4 victory over Jensen in the final
For the third consecutive year,
young Jolly captured the Blaney
Park Invitational tournament post-
ing a 54 hole total of 231, and again
nosing out his old rival Dr. Boyce.
Plays in Western Meet.
In the Western Junior Champion-
ships last summer after qualifying
easily he ran into Bud Collins in
the second round and fell a victim
by the score of 3-2. The Kansas
City youth then continued his win-
ning streak for the balance of the
tournament. Jolly had better luck
in the 1929 meet, when he advanced
to the semi-final round before
meeting disaster in the person of
Fred Lyons, the present captain of
the Illinois Varsity.

Kipke Traces Fundamentals of
Game in First Chalk
Talk of Session.
Grid candidates received their
first chalk talk of the spring ses-
sion yesterday afternoon when in-
clement weather forced them into
the confines of the field house,
where Coach Harry Kipke traced
out some of the fundamental neces-
sities of the game and attempted to
impress upon them the benefits to
be derived from intensive spring
Spring Drill Stressed.
More candidates should be out
for the practice sessions, he said,
for it is a most important condi-
tioning program for the fall com-
petition. Many a candidate has
come around just before the games
in the fall wishing that he had
gotten the punch which his team-
mates gained, Kipke said, and those
who do come out have the jump on
the others. Spring practice work-
outs determine to a great extent
the receivers of the coveted invita-
tions which the coach will send out
next August to probable Varsity
Illustrating his plays with the
men working out the plays up on
.the field house balcony, Kipke de-
scribed the duties of the various
players in their positions and gave
the men an opportunity to question
any matter which was not made
Will be Given Plays.
The men are to report every
afternoon from now on, he said,
with chalk talks on the program if
the weather nakes it impossible to
get outside. Plays will be given to
the men as the season goes along
and scrimmage sessions following
the spring vacation will give the
coaches an opportunity to get some
of them itno action.



Athletics Too Strong.
No one for a minute figures the
Bengals as pennant possibilities at
least while the Philadelphia Ath-
letics still remain in the American
League. Nor can many people see
the Harris clan beating out the
Washington Senators for second
place. Cleveland and New York,
however, present a different story,
and there is a strong possibility
that the Detroiters can get by at

gals as to be an impossibility.
