Steady Pitching and Hitting of
Wrigley, State Pitcher,
Wins for Buckeyes.
Wolverines Tie Score in Last
Half of Eighth Inning But
Visitors Take Lead.
By Sheldon C. Fullerton
A long white ago, someone made
the remark that pitchers couldn't,
hit. On the whole the facts have
substantiated the theory, but it
isn'thard to see that Lowell Wrig-
ley fails to put much stock in the
statement. Just because Wrigley
chose to be original and do a little
hitting on his own accor'd Michi-
gan dropped a 6-4 ball game to
Ohio State yesterday, and went
hurtling from the top of the Big
Ten standings.
Michigan, thanks to Wrigley's
steady pitching, was trailing when
they came to bat in the final half
of the eighth, but before the third
out was made they had combinled
two hits, one a fluke triple, with an'
error and a wild pitch to even the
count. It remained for Harley Mc-
Neal, the Wolverine moundsman, to
retire the Buckeyes in their half
of the ninthhto give the Maize and
Blue a real chance for the victory.
Wrigley Makes Three Hits.
Hale and Sharp, the first two
Buckeye batters to face McNeal in
the ninth were easy, but Wrigley,
the third man up, decided to takeC
matters in his own hands. He al-
ready had made a double and a
single in his first three trips to the
plate, but that didn't stop him from
poling another long two bagger out
to left field. Widler, not to be out-
done, came through with another
hit, Gutter and Baumgartner walk-
cd, Wand Peppe followed with still'
another single to give the Buckeyes
a three run lead going into the last
half of the ninth.
The Wolverines made a valiant
effort to even the count again in
the ninth. Manuel came through
with a solid hit to left field, went
to second on McNeal's infield out,
and scored when pinch hitter Wist-
Michigan will meet Ohio

Spot Where Body of Kidnapped Baby Was Found

Colonel Lindbergh Identifies Body Before



Child Was Killed

Soon After Kidnapping.

IlOPEWELL. N.J., May 13. - (AP) - The picture of a xather
standing alone before the body of his slain son, a mother secluded
in grief and a President calling for action inspired the mightiest law
enforcement agencies of the Nation tonight to catch the murderers
of the Lindbergh baby.
Meanwhile, the searchers held the growing belief that the crim-
inals who stole the infant March 1 sought ransom after they had
killed him.
The focal point of this school of thought was the white sleeping
suit the child wore on the night of the kidnapping. This was missing
when the body, wasted to a skeleton, was stumbled upon in a woods

do was to pop into a double play,.

caught napping way off the bag,'
and was an easy out when he fell
in an awkward attempt to scramble
back'to safety.
McNeal off Form.
Harley McNeal was distinctly off
form against the Ohioans. After
holding them hitless for the first
two innings he weakened in the
third to give them two runs on
three hits, a sacrifice, and a pair
of free passes to first. Wrigley also
inserted a single in this rally, wiile
another Buckeye slugger, Baum-
gartner, drove out the first of his
three hits of the afternoon.
Michigan had held a one run
advantage until this inning. In the
second frame Diffley singled, and
went to second when Daniels was
hit by a pitched ball. Manuel forced
Diffley on a hit to Fichter, but
Daniels was safe at second on the
play. When McNeal lashed a sharp
single over second Daniels came
scampering home with the first
score of the game.Bu
In the eighth inning the Buck-
eyes added anotherrun. With one
out, Baumgartner doubled to left
center and went to third when
Ferguson fumbled the ball. 'Then,
on Waterbor's error of Peppe's rol-
ler, Baumgartner crossed the plate.
Fluke Triple Ties Score.
In the last of the eighth Water-'
bor reached first on an error, moved
around on two outs, and scored on
Superko's single. Then, when Peppe.

of Mike Diffley's short fly, the ball
eluded him and slipped through
for a fluke triple that sent Superko

Dean Lovett of Chicago to Give
Lecture at Presentation of
Hopwood Awards.
Announcement of the winners of
the major and minor awards in the
Avery and Jule Hopwood _,creative
writing contest will be made at
4:30 o'clock, Thursday afternoon,
May 26, at which time Dean Robert
Morss Lovett, of the University of
Chicago, will deliver a lecture on
the subject "Creative writing on a
University campus."
The Hopwood contest, awarding
the largest amount of prize money
of any collegiate writing contest,
closed last month with more than
125 contestants submitting more
than 150 manuscripts. The greatest
number was entered in the field of
drama although the contest em-
braces writings in fiction, the essay
and poetry as well as drama.
Dean Lovett, giving the lecture at
the awarding of the prize money,
is well known as an author and a
scholar. For the last several years
he has been on the editorial board
of the magazine, "The New Repub-
lic." He has written several novels
as well as treatises on English lit-
erature and criticism.
This year is the first time that a
lecture has been given in connec-
tion with the announcement of the
.winners in the contest, but the in-
tention of the committee in charge,
it was announced, is to have emi-
nent writers and critics speak at
the announcement each year.
Plans for the contest next year,
have not been decided upon but
it is predicted that the contest will
be condmucte( . m the same manner
as it has :L the last two years.

Rev. Henry Lewis Will Officiate

Sunday Afternoon.
Services for Dr. R. Bishop Can-
field, who met his end suddenly
early Thursday morning in a tragic
highway accident, will be held at
4 o'clock Sunday afternoon at the
residence at 1830 Washtenaw Ave.
Rev. Henry Lewis of St. Andrew':

the interment will be held at Forest
Hill cemetery, it was learned yes-
terday. The pall bearers who were
announced yesterday include Dr. D.
I. Loree, Nathan Potter, John Walz.
Dr. Frederick G. Novy, Dr. Udo J.
Wile, Dr. Alvan Lore, Dr. Jame
Bruce, and Dr. William Marley.
A number of important pointi
were brought out at an inquest held
yesterday. Fred Clark, of Jackson
whose truck was directly in front of
Dr. Canfield's car when the crass
occurred gave two reasons for not
notifying authorities in Ann Arboi
of the accident; he had no money
to make a phone call and second it
did not occur to him to stop in Ann
Arbor since all loaded trucks are
routed by way of the cut off on ac-
count of a city ordinance.
An autopsy held yesterday con-
firmed the opinion generally held
that death was caused by injuriez
received in the wreck and not as#a
result of a stroke as was conjec-
tured at one time.
The ship on which Dr. Canfield's
daughter, Barbara and Dr. Albert
C. Furstenburg and Mrs. Fursten-
burg were traveling to Europe hak
been reached by radio and plans
have been made by the party to:
return immediately from Gibralter,
the first port of call. Dr. Fursten-
burg has been the associate and a
very close friend of Dr. Canfield's
for a number of years. The party
will arrive in Ann Arbor by May
24, it is expected.
