FRIDT~AY. MARCH 425, 1932







Big Red Distance and Field Men
Will Provide Serious Threat
to Michigan Supremacy.
Campbell, Wolfe, and Ecknovich
Lost to Maize and Blue Squad
for Crucial Encounter.
A squad of twenty or twenty-one
Wolverine trackmen are due to
leave for Ithaca today to renew
tomorrow night the ancient rival-
ry of twenty-one years' standing
between Cornell and Michigan. In
past years, the Maize and Blue has
scored heavily, capturing Lhireen
meets to the Ithacans' svenl.
This year's invasion of the Cor-
nell stronghold by the Wolves seems
likely to alter the usual run of
events, since the Easterners boast
a strong, well-balanced team at
the close of an unusually hard
schedule. They will have the ad-
ditional advantage of performing
to a home crowd on the track which
they have used for practice all
year. Rubber soled shoes will bei
standard equipment for the Michi-
gan cinder team for the first time
this year, since the thaca athleticr
facilities claim only a board t uek.
Board 'Traek May other.
The Wolves have clone some prae-
ticing on the planks over the Wat-
erman gymnasium on the campus
here, but they are far from usedi
to the feeling of the boards, and
this factor may count heavily in
the final results.
"Cornell is just as good as we
are," said Coach Hoyt of the Var-
sity speedsters yesterday afternoon,.
However, he indicated that the dis-~
tribution of power between the twot
squads was soniewhat uneven. Ac-
cording to the Michigan mentor,
the Big Reds should count much
more heavily in the field events
and longer distances than in the<
shorter running competition and
the hurdles.
Ranney of Cornell in the two-
mile distance is one of the finest
runners in the East, and Cornell
also boasts power in the mile and
half-mile events, with Martin and
Mangin as their stellar duo for both
grinds.. Michigan, however, has
entries in this class which are cer-
tainly talented enough to be reck-
oned with.
Schoenfeld Holds Shot Title.
In the field divisions, Cornell has
Schoenfeld, their captain and In-!
tercollegiate champion in the shot
put. He has bettered 49 feet. Bel-
hoff in the pole vault has toppedI
thirteen feet, and a brace of classy
high-jumpers on the Big Red team
regularly go over the six-foot mark.
Campbell, Wolfe, and Eknovich
of the Wolverine squad will prob-
ably be unable to make the trip to
the East, and their loss will be felt
keenly by the team. However, an-
other star, Glading, out for most
of the season to date because of a
leg injury, will return to competi-

Wiscons'n Withholds
Veenzer Appointment
With the re-entry of Dr. Clarence
A. Spears, Oregon State football
coach, as a possibility for the Wis-
consin coaching position, the re-
gents' meeting to consider action
of the Athletic Council in coming
to terms With George Veenker, Iowa
State coach, has been delayed.
A University official is quoted as
having said unofficially, that if Dr.
Spears still is bargaining for the
coaching post, he can have it if he
agrees to the regents' terms. Dr.
Spears withdrew from the field once
before because the terms offered
him were unacceptable.
Inasmuch as Spears appears to
hold the key to the situation, no
definite action is expected for sev-
eral days. Veenker's attitude seems
to be favorable to the Badgers.

Michigan's Varsity baseball ros-
ter was reduced to 38 yesterday
when Coach Ray Fisher made his
second cut of the season. The men
who have been retained are work-
ing out daily in the cages at Yost
field house, where practice will con-
tinue until after spring vacation.
Shortly after outdoor practice be-
gins, Coach Fisher will make his
third cut.
Survive Second Cut.
The 33 men surviving the second
cut are: Manuel, Travers, McNeil,
Kaplan, Gersbach, Tillotson, Mene-
fee, Barnet, O'Connell, Tompkins,
Wistert, Frankowski, Petoskey, and
McKay, pitchers; Baldwin, Braen-
dle, Douglass, Kracht, Daniels, But-
ler, Eastman, Superko, Tompkins,
Petrie, Lindsay, Ferguson, Artz.
Carr, Diffley, Hole, Chapman, Feld-
stein, Knight, Pomorski, Jenkins,
Bowers, Ware and Waterbor, %ho
compose the list of catchers, in-
fielders, and outfielders.
Fisher Pleased With Men.
Coach Fisher expressed himself
as pleased with the showing nmade
so far, although he added that an
accurate estimation of the team's
possibilities was impossible under
indoor practice conditions. The
year's problem seems to be the
development of a capable starting
pitcher, since 11 returning letter-
men will take care of the remain-
ing infield and outfield positions.
Manuel, Travers, McNeil, and Mc-
Kay are four pitchers who had ex-
perience with the Wolves last year,
all of them potential starting hurl-
ers. Tompkins, Braendle, Douglass,
Kracht, Daniels, Eastman, Superko,
and Butler are among the letter-
men who will make strong bids for
other infield and outfield positions
with Fisher's 1932 nine.
Billiard Tournament


By 11. Fred Hlubert
Using the same infield and out-
field that they employed through-
out the 1931 campaign, but with
the pitching staff materially bol-
stered the Cleveland Indians willl
make a bid for a high place in the
American League race this season.
Eddie Morgan, the slugging first-
baseman, will be back to guard the,
initial sack. Although not such an'
overly-strong fielder Morgan is one
of the hardest hitters in the league.
Guarding the keystone sack will
be Johnny Hodapp, the Cincinnati,
undertaker. Hodapp, still a danger-
ous batsman, is slowing up some-
what afield. Willie Kamm, another
steady old timer, will again play
third base, although he may receive
competition from Ralph Winegar-
ner, youthful recruit.
The shortstop position is a ques-
tionable one at present. Eddie Mon-
Wolverine Gymnasts
Enter Detroit Meet
Michigan's varsity gym team
which is finishing up the season
much better than it began, will ac-
c(ompany Coach West to the A.A.U.
all-Michigan gymnastic tourna-
ment to be given in Detroit tonight.
Friday evening will see the Turn-
verin gym the background for the
activity of a score of rival teams,
among which the most likely, con-
tender is the Detroit Socialer Turn-
verin outfit, who are aiming at the
Michigan gymnastic crown.
Coach West will send most of his
lettermen to Detroit to compete,
and although they have only a fair
chance to capture the all-state
laurels, they should make a good
showing against the Detroit aggre-
gation. Among the varsity men to
go will be the Steinberg twins, and
Ponto, another star. Lassila, who
was injured two weeks ago, will
probably be kept out by a bad
ankle. Parker and Ellsworth will
also make the trip.
The gym squad made only an
average showing this last season,
which is hardly to be wondered at,
since gymnastics were promoted to
the ranks of major sports only two
years ago, but the squad came
through with a surprise victory over
Ohio State's highly touted team
early in the year, and this may
indicate that Michigan's mat stars
have a chance to win.

in this weight last year, and Cliff

ing heavyweights, are the lone
Maize and Blue entries.
Both Wolverine grapplers have
been up against some of the best
matmen in college circles this yeahi
and this experience should stand
them in good stead in the nation-
als. Both Dougovito and Stoddard

About 75 individuals representing
21 schools are entered in the meet.
The participants hail from all part
of the United States.
The change in weights from th
regular collegiate divisions to tho

changes in the lineup of a number
of the teams entered. The South-
