putting up competition for a job,
as is Jesse Hill, secured from the
Pacific Coast League. One of these
men will be cut loose, however.
Lary Sure Bet.
In the infield two veterans, Lyn
Lary, stellar shortstop, and Lar-
rv~in' Lou Gehrig, slugging first-
sacker, are fixtures. Jack Saltz-
gayer from the American Associa-
tion, loks placed at second base. He
will find Tony Lozzeri a hard man
to beat however. At third is Frank
Crosetti, protege of Lazzeri, who
has seta phenomenal pace at ghird
for San Francisco.
The catching staff will again be
headed by the steady and heady
Bill Dickey. Ralph Perkins has
gone, but Arndt Jorgens, relief
maskinan in 1931 and Ralph Pad-
den, recalled from St. Paul, seem
sure to secure the other two places.
Hurlers Look Good.
The pitching staff looks as for-
midable as it has in many seasons.
George Pipgras is entirely recover-
ed from the illness that kept him
idle most of last season and is ex-
pected to be the ace moundsman of
the Yanks. Herb Pennock, old-'
timq portsider, is another bet to
win a goodly share of ball games
and Vernon Gomez, with a season
of majo rleague experience behind
him, should be more formidable
than ever.
Vd Wells, another left-hander, is
sure to win a starting place on the
staff along with the hard hittirg
Charlie Ruffing. Of the new men
Johnny Murphy, secured froM St.
Paul, and young Henry Nekola, who
pitched i n t h e International

George Veenker May
Sin as Head Coach
of Badger Gridders
George Veenker, former Michigan
basketball coach and .assistant,
football coach, has been approach-
ed by Wisconsin athletic authori-
ties, pending a position as head
coach of the Badgers, it is rumored.
Veenker, if he conm~pletes negotia-
tions, will succeed Glen Thistle'-
waite, ex-mentor-~of the Wisconsin
grid team.
Following a year's work with
Iowa State, Veenker may return to
the Big Ten ranks to train teams to
fight against, instead of for, Mich-
igan. In one year Veenker raisedI
the -mid-Western aggregation from
a low position )to a ranking place
and a possible championship in the
Misso uri Valley conference.p -
The reason Veenker gave for re-
signing from the Michigan coach-
inig squad was the desire to make a=
name for himself as a grid mentor
g'ather than a basketball coach.
While in Ann ,Arbor, Veenker was
a highly popular and efficient
cch, and the Varsity may well
consider his teams a inenace if he
is signed by the Badgers,-
