Overhaul Yannigans as 10-Inning
Contest Terminates in
2-2 Tie.



Varsity baseball practice looked a
lot better yesterday afternoon than
it has for the past couple sessions.
The Yannigans seemed headed for
another victory to humiliate the
regulars but the latter had some-
thing to say about that today and
finally, in fact in the last inning,
they grouped enough hits to tie
the score for the day, 2-2.
It wasn't until the sixth inning
that any runs were made at all and E
then the Yannigans took the lead
with a couple runs that they work-
ed out of a new pitcher, Gerspah, a
junior. This hurler had his share
of troubles and could not bring the
ball down from ball after ball, and
the up-shot was that Moodie's sin-
gle past Hudson into right scored
two men who had been walked just
ahead of him.

pitching for the regulars and held

Lefty Travers, who is a new man
and looks like plenty of worry forj
the majority of batters in collegi-
ate baseball, was carrying the
mound work for the Yannigans for
the first four innings. He allowed
no runs to be scored, although he
got himself into a couple holes in
the first three innings that'-might
have resulted in runs for the regu-
lars. Each time, however, Solly
Hudson failed to connect with the

Harley MacNeil took over the du-

it most of the time. Starting with
the eighth he could see trouble
coming, however, and although he,
managed to get himself out of bad
holes in both the eighth and ninth
innings, he was touched for two tie-
ing runs in the last.
Ken Manuel finished the game
for the first team and he too made
a good showing considering it was
his first time on the rubber in com-

Roger Peckinpaugh, manager of the Cleveland Indians, will send his team against the Chicago White
Sox, led by Donie Bush, when the American League baseball season opens in Cleveland next week, with
the hopes of getting off to a good start on the team's drive for a high position iri the junior circuit race.
Upon Earl Averill, center fielder, and Johnny Hodapp, second baseman and one of the best hitters in the
league, Peck will pin much of his hopes. Bush will bank on outfielder Smead Jolley and a new shortstop,

Luke Appling, to get the Sox off on the right foot.

Sigma Delta Psi, Nation
to Hold Trials at Intraa
Any man enrolled in the Univer-
sity, who is not on probation, is
eligible to become a candidate for
Sigma Delta Psi, national honorary
athletic fraternity, by attempting
the 12 required events. Commencing
April 20, tests will be held Monday,
Tuesday, and Thursday from 3:00
to 5:30 each afternoon. Candidates
should report to Mr. Webster at the
Intramural building.
Fraternities that are entered in
this sport as one of the eighteen
events contested for in the year-
round participation contest should
get their men out immediately.
However, a fraternity, to be quali-
fied to continue this event must
have had five men pass three
events each before Christmas.
These five men must attempt the
remaining 12 events to gain en-
I trance points for their house. After
a team is qualified to continue com-
petition, as many men as the house
desires may attempt events, and
additional points will be awarded
on the basis of greatest number of'
points scored; one point to be

scored on the successful completion
of an event. The house scoring the
greatest number of points is award-
ed the maximum points provided
for on the point system chart. It is
necessary for everyone to have a
Health Card filed at the Intramural
building before attempting any of
these events.
Recent changes made in the
eligibility requirements are:
The 220 low hurdle test has been
changed to 120 low hurdle, 5 hur-
dlesin a fligt. Time: 16 seconds.
The pole vault test has been
changed to a 20 foot rope climb
without the use of the legs, and
from a sitting position on the floor.
.Time: 12 seconds.
Great interest is being shown in
these trials this 'year as is evidenc-
ed by the large, numbers that have
come out. Interest has been further
stimulated by the announcement of
the awarding of an individual cup
for the best all-round record. Two,
hundred and seventy-ine men
took part in those eVents last year.!

Declines to Give up Cleveland
Connection for Job.
CLEVELAND, April 7.-(AP)-Billy
Evans would rather direct the
ClevelandIndians than be presi-
dent of the American League.
In a formal statement, Evans last
night definitely eliminated himself
from consideration as president of
the league to succeed the late Er-
nest S. Barnard. It was Barnard
that Evans followed as general
managed of the Cleveland club.
Evans said he was not unappre-.
ciative of the general belief that he
was the most logical man for the
presidency, but described his con-
nection as a "happy one."
