statement recently that, "The best

Spring drill has long been recog-
nized by football coaches and has
become a standard feature at all
leading colleges. Without the pres-
sure of next Saturday's game ever
in front of the coaches, they have a
chance to pick out their most prom-
ising recruits, both freshmen and
former reserves, without making any
concessions of filling positions with
men who will do.
They give the newcomer an excel-
lent chance to become acquainted
with "the fundamentals, taking his
time learning them thoroughly with-
out pressure of approaching sched-
ules, and the system preferred by
the particular coach.,
Spring practice serves yet another
good-that of experience. Possibly it
is one of the best ways to build ex-
perience. There is. no hurrying to
half-learn plays. All the time that
is needed is there and many football
players are of the plugging type that
need a long time to learn, but once
it is mastered they are letter-perfect.
Frequent scrimmages lead up to
the "big game" at the end of the
spring drills. Michigan has had
three or four major scrimmages this
year and the "big game" comes next
However, spring practice might be

of Southern California last year.

season training that did it, the effect

The Big Ten will not allow all-
summer practice, but the players arc
expected to return in excellent shape
in the fall. The organization also
has definite rules as to the length of

Ned Turner, -half-mile star, will

in both the high and low hurdles.

other hurdle entrants.

Ypsilanti boasts Tom Quinn in the
half-mile, Zepp in the distances,
Captain McKinley and Lowry in the
pole vault, Eugene Beatty in the
hurdles, and several other national-
ly-prominent tracksters.
Student identification cards are
good for admittance to the meet.

ing freshman in spring football
practice, Coach Harry Kipke said
yesterday. This date is only a tenta-
tive selection as yet.
Among the prominent candidates
for the cup are the following fresh-
men: Remias, Johnson, Malashevich,
Stone, Wells, Bolis, Dauksza, and
Representatives of the Chicago
chapter of the Alumni Association,

Wolves To Play
Third Game Of
Ypsilanti Series
Patchin To Start h n Box
For Michigan; Lineup
Remains Unchanged
Opening the stiffest week of the
baseball season Michigan's nine will
journey to Ypsilanti this afternoon
for the third game in its series with
Michigan State Normal College.
The Wolverines have captured both
of the previous contests which were
played last week on Ferry Field, and
will be seeking their third consecu-
tive vicory over the Hurons.
Art Patchin and Whitey Wistert,
who hurled rather mediocre ball
against Michigan State Saturday,
should draw today's pitching assign-
ment, with Patchin opening the
game on the mound.
Lineup Unchanged
Although the lineup which will
start the game is ;the same one
which faced the Spartans last Sat-
urday, Coach Ray Fisher declared
he was disappointed with the hit-
ting in the last game. Michigan col-
lected but seven base hits, Artz and
Petoskey getting three apiece.
Milton Mott, whom the Maize-
and-Blue hitters drove from the box
in Monday's game against M. S. N. C.,
is slated again to do the hurling,
although he has been suffering from
a sore arm, and a last-minute shift
may send Tomi Quinlan, who was
beaten inda pitching duel on Friday,
to the box.
Paulson Still Out
With Clayt Paulson still on the
injured list as a result of Friday's
game, in which he broke his thumb,
Russ Oliver will again be at third
base. In addition Fred Ratterman,
Johnny Regeezi, and Hal Roehrig
are expected to break into the lineup
in the later stages of the game.
The lineup follows:
Michigan M. S. N. C.
Artz, rf Batterson, 3b
Waterbor, 2b Wittkop, ss
Braendle, If Cohen, lb

Call Courses 'Too Long
LONDON, May 1.-01-American
women are keener than English girls
on golf. They seem to think golf,
talk golf, and even dream golf, ac-
cording to Miss Dix Perkins, a mem-
ber of the British women's team back
after an American tour.
The British women had only one
criticism to make of their tour; that
the golf courses on which they played
are too long for women.

Micligan Net
Squad To Mee
Spartans Here
.Michigan's Varsity tennis team
will be seeking its third successive s
victory of the season in its match b
today with the strong Michigan State
aggregation, scheduled for 3 p. m.
on the Ferry Field courts.
It will be the fourth match of the
year for the Spartan netters who
have an overwhelming win over
Kalamazoo and matches with Ypsi-
lanti and Notre Dame already under
their belts.
Coach John Johnstone feels that
the Wolverines, rapidly gaining con-
fidence after scoring wins over De-
troit Tennis Club and Western State
Teachers College of Kalamazoo, are
developing into a powerful club and,
though advance dope gives State the
victory, hopes to see his youngsters
come through.
Comparative records give State a
decided edge since they shut out the
Western State Teachers, 9 to 0, a
week ago while the Wolverines had
to be satisfied with a scant 4 to 3
victory over the same aggregation
last week.
Seymour Seigel, sophomore sensa-
tion, will probably meet Al Weitz,
Spartan ace, in the feature match of
the afternoon.
Johnstone plans to stick to the
team that turned back Kalamazoo
Saturday using, besides Seigel, Cap-
tain Dick Snell, Nisen, and Baldwin.
The Spartans will use the same
lineu that has turned in such in-
pressive showings so far, using Weitz,
Norris, Link, Goodwin and Stone-
Golfers To Tekl
wildcats Tomorrow
The Varsity golf team under Coach
Trueblood left early this morning
for Evanston to encounter North-
western tomorrow in its first Con-
ference meet of the season.
The easy manner in which they
defeated State 24 to 3 last Satur-
day has raised their morale a great
deal, although they do expect a tough
mnatch from the Wildcats. Johnny
Fischer will play his usual No. 1 po-
sition with Ed Dayton at No. 2, Cap-
tain Jolly at No. 3, and Markham
No. 4. Markham, due to his consist-
ent play last week and his good
showing Saturday, has beaten out
Carol Sweet and George David for
the No. 4 post.
The major league standings and
ball scores will be found on page 2
of this issue.
