Because Of Rain

To Hurl For Chicago

Michigan Will Start
Outfield; Manuel
Play At Shortstop


Weather permitting, the Wolverine?
nine will face Chicago in the last
home game in the Conference series1
this afternoon. It is the final con-1
test on the home field this season.
The weather, which has success-
fully rained out so many of thej
games this year, kept the Wolves
from getting a crack at the runner-
up post in the Big Ten standings
when the Indiana game had to be
postponed yesterday.
Coach Ray Fisher is planning to
use the same lineup as was sched-
uled to work against Indiana. Whitey
Wistert will assume the task at the
mound. His success in the previous
Chicago combat gives some indica-
tion of what may be expected, as he
led the Wolverines to a 12-2 victory
over the Maroons on the latter's
home field three weeks ago.
Langford, ; who pitched against
Wistert in the earlier game, is the
likely one to start
today for the visi-
The outfield as- .:.
signments will re-
main the same.,
Petoskey, who has
been doing stellar
work at the cen-
ter garden, will be
in his usual place.
Braendle and Artz
will be out in the ToSr( C
other field posts. _
Stan Ware may get his chance at
first base this afternoon. Coach
Fisher plans to start him in the
place Wistert has been playing whileF
Whitey works from the box.
Manuel, who has been moved to
short to fill the vacancy left by the
injured Teitelbaum, will stick to his
new position, while Waterbor on
second and Oliver will round out the
infield circle.
Chicago has not won a Conference
start since it bowed to Michigan.
According to Coach Fisher, the
Wolves are fairly confident of vic-
tory, though, as he says, "It's a base-
ball game and we can't be sure."
It will be the last appearance of
Captain Diffley, Manuel, and Braen-
dle on their home field.

Starting Things
..- .
"IT WAS just by an accident that
crouch starting was discovered to
be used by runners," said Doctor
May, head of the men's physical
education department at Waterman
Gymnasium. "The runners of years
gone by, used to start from a stand-
ing position. But, once, years ago,
a runner had trouble with his shoe;
his shoe laces had become untied.
"When the starter fired the gun,
the runner had just finished tieing
his shoe lace, consequently he star-
ted from that crouching position.
Much to the surprise of all who were
present, that runner sprang out far
ahead of his competitors in the
start." From that time until the
present day the crouch start has
been used.
"When the runner is in the
crouched position ready to start his
race, he is in the most favorable po-
sition for a fast getaway," Dr. May
continued. The runner's knees,
ankles and hips are stretched in such
a manner that these muscles serve
as a spring, and in this way assure
the runner of a fast start.
"A track starter must use care,
skill, and judgment when starting
short runs or sprints," said Dr. May.
It is the task of the starter to see
that the runners are settled.
"It is often the case that all the
men are ready and poised to start'
when one man gets out of position.
The starter must hold all the men
until they are all ready to start. A
good runner always likes to have
sufficient time to poise his body be-
fore he starts his run," Dr. May
"The most favorable position for
a starter is at the side, because from
the side position he can see every
contestant take his mark." Dr. May
was the first man to introduce this
method of standing, by the starter,
into the middle-west.
Dr. May bases this position of the
starter on the fact that, "It makes
particular use of the acute point of
vision, which is the most accurate
vision that we have. Whereas when
the starter is in front of the runners,
or perhaps in the back, the entire
field of vision is used."
At the present time in all dual
meets, Dr. May employs the Olympic
rule of starting. That is, not to
bring men back on false starts and
set them behind the other runners;
but, instead to give them two false
starts, and on the third, they are
disqualified, and cannot participate
in that event.

Practice On M' onday
Michigan's Conference cham-
pionship track team will resume
practice Monday in preparation
for the N. C. A. A. meet to be
held in Chicago, June 16 and 17.
The Wolves will have a tough
time if they are planning to carry
oI the team title, since the strong
Indiana team will be there in
force, and numerous west coast
stars from Stanford and South-
crn California will stop over at"
the Midway on their homeward
trip from the East where they
are seeking the I. C. 4-A. title this

U0 S. Davis Cup1
Squad Takes
Zone -Ionors
WASHINGTON, May 26-(P)--The
smooth functioning, power - filled
doubles combination of George Lott
and Johnny Van Ryn today blasted
the hopes of a hard-fighting Argen-
tine duo to clinch American Zone
Davis Cup honors for the United
States and insure it another Euro-
pean tennis invasion.
The American pair defeated Ad-
riano Zappa and Adelmar Echever-
ria, 6-1, 6-4, 6-1, to give this coun-
try's Davis Cup team a three-match
lead over Argentina and make tomor-
row's singles just an exhibition.
Bernon Prentice, American non-
playing captain, announced today
there would be a meeting of the Da-
vis Cup powers on Monday, to lay
plans for the quest of the famous
tennis grail abroad.
With the exception of Ellsworth
Vines, American and Wimbledon
champion, and Keith Gledhill, co-
holder with Vines of the American
doubles championship, the United
States, team will be kept out of the
British championships, Prentice said,
in order to conserve strength for the
foreign cup matches.
Team Leaves July 1
The team probably will sail about
July 1, going direct to Paris to meet
the winner of European Zone Davis
Cup play, with the victors to meet
the French. Vines and Gledhill, how-
ever, will sail June 10 to play at the
Queen's Club in England and Wim-
In the second set with the small-
statured Zappa leading the way, the
South Americans battled their way to
a 4-2 lead. So successful were they in
delivering sharply angled overhead

PHILADELPHIA, May 26. - /P) -
The Detroit Tigers broke the Phila-
delphia Athletics' winning streak of
seven games today when they slugged
out a 10-1 victory.
Rowe pitched for the Tigers and
managed to hold the Mackmen to
six hits. Fox was the hitting star
of the day, slapping out two doubles
and two singles in six trips to the
plate. Greenberg and Hayworth
each hit a home run.
WASHINGTON, May 26. - (P) -
The Washington Senators creeped
within a full game of the league-
leading Yankees today as they
defeated St. Louis, 5 to 2, in a game
that was halted by rain in the
seventh inning. In the meantime the
Yanks lost a contest to Chicago, 8-6.
PITTSBURGH, May 26. - (A) -
Mancuso's home run in the eighth
frame enabled the New York Giants
to defeat the Pittsburgh Pirates to-
day, 6 to 5, and to reduce their lead
to two games. Heine Meine hurled
for the Pirates and blanked the
Giants for the first three innings,
but was knocked out of the box in
the fourth. Fitzsimmons started on
the mound for the Giants, but Bell

game, and took credit for the win.
