MADISON, Wis., April 20. - A
hearty welcome, good fellowship
and a real outpouring of the old
Wisconsin spirit will feature the
program of the banquet to be ten-
dered Dr. Clarence W. Spears, Wis-
consin's new football cpach, on
April 27.
The program committee, headed
by Jerry Riordan, has promised
that there will be a minimum of
ponderous oratory, that most of the
talks will be brief and that all will
be entertaining and very much to
the point-to pledge sincere sup-
port to the man who has been
chosen to guide Wisconsin's future
football fortunes. The complete list
of speakers will be announced soon.

Alpha Kappa Lambda, fraternity
athletic champions for 1931, are
making a strong bid for the 1932
honors. By annexing titles in the
three sports, speed-ball, volley ball,
and track, they got off to a big
lead with 1,016 points to their
nearest rivals' 785.
After Delta Alpha Epsilon which
stands second, comes Delta Sigma
Phi with 744 markers. Alpha Omega,
last year's professional winner, has
tallied 673 for fourth place, and
Theta Xi is fifth with 644.
Only the spring sports: indoor
baseball, tennis, horse-shoes, and
Sigma Delta Psi contests remain on
the fraternity card. Competition
will be brought to an end May 30.

EitheraHarley McNeal or Francis
Wistert appear to be slated to re-
ceive the pitching assignment on
Saturday when the Wolverine base-
ball team meet the championship
nine from Illinois in the opening
conference game of the season.
McNeal pitched a fine game
against the Normal aggregation on
Tuesday, but the excellent work of
Wistert in the last two innings may
give him the call over last year's
Base Running Faulty.
Although the baseball displayed
against Ypsi was not of big-league
calibre, Coach Fisher is well sat-
isfied with their showing. Faulty
base running was the factor tlmt
contributed most to the defeat, bad
sliding into bases losing close de-
cision which later would have pro-
duced runs. '
In an attempt to get more punch
into the offense, Fisher made sev-
eral switches in the lineup in yes-
torday's practice. The team which
the Illini will bring here Saturday
looks stronger than the Wolves,
and, as the hurling may not be
enough to stop the Indians, Fisher
is seeking to put more batting
punch into the lineup.
Fielding Drill Held.
Yesterday's lengthy fielding drill
should improve the ball handling
considerably for the encounter Sat-
urday. For more than an hour the
regulars were kept in the field while
the remainder of the squad cracked
out the offerings iof two substitute
hurlers: Ted Petoskey continued
his slugging of Tuesday's game
with several hard liners.
Considerable improvement was
shown in the fielding, especially
pleasing being the work of Norm
Daniels at second. The veteran in-
fielder handled m a n y chances
clearly, and on several attempts
made sparkling plays that elicted
praise from Coach Fisher.
Stan Waterbor occupied the hot
corner most of the session and pro-
duced some fielding gems that cut
off sure hits., Manuel was shifted
from first to short, where his play
was not particularly gratifying. He
seemed to have some difficulty in
becoming accustomed to the posi-
tion, his lack of speed allowing
many hits to go through him.

Win Over Northwestern Outfit
Assures Them of Tie for
First Half of Race.
(Special to The Daily)
IOWA CITY, April 20.-A tie for
first in the Western conference
baseball standing will be at least
the position of the University of
Iowa team throughout the first
half of the season.
This was assured lest Friday
when the Hawkcyes defeated North-
western in the season's opining
conference game, thereby becoming
the first Iowa team in five years
to win the Big Ten diamond opener.
To Play Michigan Next.
Not until the Michigan game at
Iowa City May 6 will the Iowans
re-enter Big Ten competition, so it
will be impossible for the team to
lose its elevated place until then.
Meanwhile, Coach Otto H. Vogel's
smart nine, which whipped North-
western by timely hitting and in-
telligent baserunning, plays col-
legiate teams this week, Iowa State
Teachers at Cedar Falls Friday and
Carleton at Northfield, Minn., Sat-
Vogel Works on Pitchers.
Development of the pitchers to
a higher point of efficiency is
sought by the Iowa coach. Wil-
iam Ricke, veteran who handled
most of the Northwestern game,
displayed an alarming wobbliness
at intervals, although his mates
gave him perfect support in th-
field despite a steady drizzle which
made fielding hazardous.
What John Ingraham, Iowa'3

seasons, could do under conferenc i
fire is yet to be learned this ygar,


tennis players around to top iorm
the earliest in years, chances for
a win over the strong Detroit Ten-
nis club team in the annual Wol-
verine-Detroit match Saturday look
biighter than they have in the past
few years.
Since the Detroiters last year
scored a triumph on rain soaked
courts, the Maize and Blue aggre-
gation, which will most ilkely be
composed of Captain Ryan, Clarke,
Pendell, Reindel, Clark and Snell,
will be out for a complete reversal
in the outcome.

Are Well Conditioned.
* Indicna enters the meet as one of
the outstanding threats because of
the good early season condition of
the Hayesmen. The Crimson squad
swept thirough everything it en-
countered in indoor track. Coach
Hayes began outdoor work in earn-
est this week and the men worked
intensively in the Memorial stad-
ium regardless of rain, wind, and
cold weather.
Coach Dean's diamond team's on-
ly game for the week is against
Purdue Friday afternoon at Lafay-
ette in the first of a three game
series this season.
