P RESS BOX

EVERYONE IS talking about the
Derby. Why bet on Ladysman be-
cause if he does win, the return is so
little? Ladysman, the theme song
of the bookies, will be at about 2-1
at the start. Which isn't much money
in a hors race.
There jdoes not appear to be any
colt anywhere to approach the cali-
bre of Black Gold, Twenty Grand,
Gallant Sir, etc. Although Ladysman
is the prime favorite, even his strong-
est partisans admit that he is a
sprinter, pure and simple--and the
mile and a quarter is not exactly a
On paper it seems that the race
is "open" and some unknown-in
betting odds-that feels just right
and gets away without trouble, can
capture the $50,000 plum. So maybe
one should look again at the three-
year-old with the long odds.
Personally we favor Trace Call
among the 40 to 1 shots. He has
distinguished English lineage, his
parents having an English Derby fir§t
and several other outstanding vic-
tories to their credit. The colt has
not been heard of nor started in
many races. Whether this has been
due to the owner's orders or whether
he has been injured, we do not know,
but the fact remains that not much
is known about him. Hanford, rid-
ing him, is considered high in jockey
Then there is Knockaway, the im-
ported gelding from Ireland out of
Half Awake by Knockado. His past
performances and particularly his
training trials at Churchill Downs
seem to give Ample reason for such
a view as a possible winner.
At 20 to 1, Interpreter might "fool
the peoples." Monte Park, who has
him in charge, firmly believes that
he will win the Derby with Interpre-
ter, But then, what trainer wouldn't
say it for publication?
Pre-War, also at 20 to 1, will take
every chance that there is to win.
That is the way Korvath rides them.
He's a youngster and so far hasn't
taken his first <fall. Consequently he
takes more chances than one who
has had the experience of flying
heels pounding on his sprawled body.
Willie Crump bought Head Play
for $550 to re-sell and then couldn't
get him off his hands. Now he thinks
that he is good for a place in the
race. Crumnp taught both Isaiah, Mr.
Parrish's Derby eligible, and Head
Play how to race along scientific lines
for long distances. Either of these
might show. Incidentally Ladysman
might be a better bet to show than
on thebnose. Favorites frequently
are. And Sonny Workman is riding
Why hasn't Col. Bradley picked
a boy for Beefsteak?
The clash of the East vs. the West
helps along the publicity. The inter-
sectional rivalry packs in the crowd
but it remains to be seen whether it
will pack in the thrills.
Twenty Grand holds the track rec-
ord at 2:01.8. Burgoo King won last
year in the slow time of 2:05.2.
If it's muddy the situation changes.
Quite a few of the longer shots are
mudders, or thought to be.
But after all anything can happen
in a horse race, and probably this
one willsbe little different. Expect
the worst everytime and then you
won't be disappointed.
To Depart For
Pair Of Games
Michigan Nine Will Meet
Western State Today;
At Chicago Saturday
Thirteen of Michigan's baseball
men will depart by automobile today
for Kalamazoo, where they will face
the Western State Teachers' College
nine in the first of their two games
on the Western trip.
Saturday the Wolverines will pro-
ceed to Chicago to face the Maroons,
in what will be the second Big Ten
game of the year for the Maize and
The squad that will make the trip
consists of four pitchers, five infield-
ers, three outfielders, and Captain
Mike Diffley as the lone catcher. Ted
Petoskey, Gene Braendle, and Avon
Artz, are the outfielders taken on the
Art Patchin, who will start today's
contest against t h e Hilltoppers,
Whitey Wistert, Chuck Menefee, and
Harry Tillotson are the hurlers who
will be carried. The infielders are
Ken Manuel, Buck Waterbor, Jack'
Teitelbaum, Russ Oliver, and Stan
Kalamazoo boasts victories over
Iowa and Northwestern this season,
and in Marquard, a right hander,
and Brandt, a port side flinger, have

the state. Which one will draw the
assignment today against the Wolves
Be Strong n
Five members of Michigan's Var-
sity tennis team left the Union at
4 p. m. yesterday on their way to
Chicago and two strenuous confer-
ence matches today and tomorrow.
Chicago's Maroons will be met this
afternoon, while Northwestern will
furnish tomorrow's opposition for the
The Wolverines are in bad shape.
Deprived of the services of Capt.
Dick Snell, number two man on the
squad, due to illness. Johnstone was
pessimistic and slightly ill himself
yesterday afternoon before the de-
parture. No regular practice sessions
have been held all week by the Maize
and Blue outfit due at first to wet
courts, and later to cold weather.
Chicago, even minus Rexinger, last
year's ace of the Western Conference,
has a formidable aggregation, while
Northwestern is rated as better yet.
Thus the Wolverines, cramped from
a long automobile ride and out of
shape, will have to meet the toughest
dual competition of the season on
two successive days.
FROSH BALL SQUAD PICKED
After studying and cutting a squad
of 75 men, Coach Benny Oosterbaan
has finally chosen his freshman base-
ball team. Several of the frosh have
shown good form in practices so
far,' and look like good future varsity

Meet Dayton Today
Encouraged by its win over North-
western Wednesday. the Michigan
golf team will meet the strong Day-
ton University squad here today at'
the University golf course.
The Dayton team will be composed
of two of the best collegiate golfers
in the Middle West, Hammat and
Florio. Hammat made an excellent
showing in the collegiate tournament
last year and has continued his good
showing in all the meets this year.
Florio, a star at Ohio State a short
while ago, transferred to Dayton and
will be one of the walls of opposition
that the Wolverines will have to get
However, the Michigan team is
favored to win, by virtue of its de-
cisive victory over the Wildcats. De-
spite unfavorable conditions, Johnny
Fischer turned in a 71 and a 74 in
his two rounds of play. The others
handed in commendable scores also.
Dayton did a 79 in the morning
rounds and a count of 78 in the aft-
ernoon. Cal Markham, the sensa-
tional sophomore flash, came through
with two 79's. Captain Jolly scored
a 79 and a 81. Fischer and Mark-
ham won a foursome from Brown'
and Reid of the Northwestern team.
Dayton and Jolly were held to ties
in singles matches by Reid and
first, Flynn at second, Ferner at short
and Ford at third. Jablonski, Rud-
neff and Vorah compose the outfield,
playing left, center and right respec-
tively. The batteries are Lundy and
Latte on the mound with Hillber-
ger and Tarbox receiving.
Charlie Gehringer blasted out a
home run in the ninth inning yester-
day to spoil Lefty Gomez's chances
of a no-hit game as the Yankees de-
feated the Bengals 5 to 2 at Navin
Field. Gerald Walker got the sec-
ond Tiger run in the same inning
on a double, going to third on a wild
pitch and scoring on Rogell's out
