Seven Vaiations

"HERE'S what happens to a sport
writer in the spring," says Al
Newman, sports assistant. He con-
tributes the following seven varia-
tions of a theme from the Associated1
1. LOWELL, Mass., March 3I.-(AP)
-Local police were called upon toc
take action here last night during at
wrestling match between Bull Martin
and Abe Moskovitch. The grapplers<
had one fall apiece and were claw-7
ing exhaustedly for the deciding fallI
for a half an hour until police inter-
vened. They stated that it was the
only human thing to do.
2. LOWELL, Mass., April 1.-Ru-
mor here in the police wrestling case
has it that some scandal is mixed up
in local sport circles. Police, sepa-
rating the wrestlers in the Arena last
night, found that the tangle in the
center of the ring was only one
wrestler, who gave his name as Abe-
Bull (get it?) Martinvitch. Promot-
ers of the bout are being sought.
Martinvitch, when disentangled was
found to be biting his own toe.
3. LOWELL, Mass., April 3.-Suit
was filed here today by Abel Martin-
vitch, local wrestler, suing himself
for damages and charging mayhem
to the big toe of the right foot.
Mental anguish was also cited in the
suit, which was for $25,000, Attor-
ney Flywheel will handle the case.
4. LOWELL, Mass., April 4.-Judge
Blugg of Circuit Court here today
handed down a decision in the Mar-
tinvitch vs. Martinvitch case award-
ing Martinvitch $10,000. In hisk
opinion, the judged ruled out the,
mental anguish portion of the suit
on the 'grounds that neither the
plaintiff nor the defendant, "had
much to brag about in the way of
grey matter." Martinvitch paid him-
self $10,000 minus the $2,000 which
was deducted for the fee of Attorney
Flywheel and went away satisfied.

In Field House
Rain and wet grounds kept Michi-
gan's diamond squad within the con-
fines of Yost Field House yesterday l
afternoon for its daily workout.
Coach Fisher's charges worked in the
nets all afternoon inder the watch-
ful eye of the mentor.t
One casualty was the result of the
cramped quarters in which the play-l
ers worked yesterday. Avon Artz,
varsity outfielder was hit in the nose
and lip with a line drive. A severe
nosebleed and a cut lip were the ex-
tent of the damage.
Darkness Finders Practicc
Varsity pitchers and batters were
working in the nets at the far end
of the enclosure as usual, but the
lay was too dark during the space
of the afternoon workout for the
batsmen to operate very efliciently.1
Fielders worked out in the large space
with batted balls on the fast-bound--
ing dirt floor of the Field House giv-'
ing them plenty of trouble.
On the books for today is a short
game, Varsity versus Yannigans, if
the weather clears. Few of the horse-
hide-chasers are going home for the
vacation, although many are plan-
ning on commuting between here and
Detroit in order to get in shape for
the season.
Strenuous Workout Tomorrow
Tomorrow will see the entire in-
field present for a strenuous workout
outdoors, and the pitching staff is
also expected to turn out in full force.
It will be a training practice in which
Coach Fisher will keep the boys on
the diamond for most of the after-
noon chasing batted balls and iron-
ing out defects in infield teamwork.
Next week, several games are plan-
ned with Ypsilanti Normal. The con-
tests will probably be held here, with
the stipulation that they will be
strictly practice affairs, with tryouts
for all the men on the two squads.

Although the Intramural Building
will be closed over the vacation per-
iod, the hub of campus sports will
start operations in a big way after
school, resumes to get its spring
sport program going.
Regardless of the decision reached
in respect to the reopening of the
building, the outdoor events will be
conducted by the University through-
out the spring season. There are ten
major sports that will require the
use of most of Ferry Field until June,
some for fraternities, some for inde-
pendents, some for al-campus com-
petition, and several include all types.
Baseball, Tennis Featured
The more important outside activi-
ties are baseball and tennis. In the
former, competition is for fraterni-
ties, independents, and all campus.
The teatn competition Will get under
way about April 19 and will continue
till the end of the semester. There
are already 55 fraternity teams en-
