Contract for Three Year Tetm.

Walter Johnson, now a manager,
wore the Washington colors from
the .beginning to the end of his
major league career. Sam Rice,
with 15 big league years to his
credit, has played for Washington
only. And Jimmy Dykes has worn
the Athletic spangles for 13 years.
Seldom does a man, who is good
enough to stay 10 or more years in
fast company, end his career with
the same club that brought him up
from the bushes. Eben Christy
Mathewson pitched one game for
Cincinnati after 16 years With the
Giants. Joe Judge went to Wash-
ington after a trial with the Red
Sox.

thlad with Detroit but finished in Phil-
Sh adelphia. Hans Wagner wore a
gbirg Louisvile uniform before he moved
r the on to Pittsburgh. Max Carey was a
on inl17-year figure with the Pirates, yet
pion- his active career ended with Brook-
lyn. Harry Heilmann spent 15

rated Cincinnati. Cy Perkins was a Mack-

now he is a Yankee. Sq is Joe

lins started with the Athletics and
returned to them after a period
with the White Sox. Even Pop An-
son played with Rockford and the
Athletics before Chicago discovered,

Mike Tiernan, one of the old time
sluggers, was one of the few fix-
tures. Mike never wore any but a
Giant uniform.

suddenly took it upon themselves
to boot the ball to all corners of the
field and to give the Wolverines a

Coach Fisher's team turned in a
creditable showing against the
Bucks, gathering eight safe blows
off Ohio state's two star pitchers.

pitcher, Kiegler has been pitching
a nice brand of ball all season long,
but in his last three starts he has
looked the part of a greatly im-
proved hurler. t
Against Iowa he \came through
with a 2-0 victory, \while in the
first five innings against the Ypsi
Normal last week he allowed only
two hits and kept the plate free
from being crossed. Now his five hit
pitching against Ohio puts him al-
most on a par with Vern Compton
for his season's work.
Wolverines Strong i)efensively.
Michigan also turned in a nice
game in the field, the only two
errors made by the Wolverines
being chalked up to third baseman
Art Superko.
Hudson and Diffley were the only
Wolverines to garner more than one
safe hit, both of these men being
credited with two singles apiece. All
of the rest of the members of the
team, with the exception of Kracht,
Daniels, and Kiegler, hit safely- at
least once.

Club owners or their representa-

Harvey Bauss and Bill Walker
are staging one great race for the
honors as the best all-around ath-
lete in Intramural Competition,
These honors include a fine tro-;
phy with no runner-up award and
it is little wonder that these men
are both anxious to be the high
point man.

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland, May 27.1
-(W)-More than 200 of the world's
finest golfers will gather here Mon-
day for the British Open champion-
ship and among thpm 14 Ameri-
cans.
With Bobby Jones letting the
title go by default, the 10 profes-
sionals in the Armerican contingent'
loom much more formidable than
the amateurs. The pros include
such stars as Tommy Armour, of
Detroit; Gene Sarazen, Johnny
Farrell, MacDonal Sith, Horton
Smith and Joe Kirkwood, of New;
York; Joe Turnesa and Tony Ma-
nero, of Elnsford, N. Y.; Willie
Hunter, of Los Angeles, and Arthur
Straub, of Maplewood, complete the
professional list.
George Voigt, of New York, who
reached the fifth round of the Brit-;
ish Amateur 10 days ago, stands
head and shoulders above the other
American amateurs.r
Wesley Ferrell, pitching ace of'
the Cleveland Indians, would rath-
er be lucky than god.
