cA Close Fight' Is Demisey's
Dope On Schmeling-Baer Bout

This week marks the end of a
strenuous training period for the
prinripals in the Schmeling-Baer
fight in Yankee Stadium June 8. And
don't think the two I\Iaxes are the
only principals in it either. Mr. Wil-
liam Harrison Dempsey has been do-
ing almost as much road 1vork and
more pcrspiring than both fighters
in the last two weeks. Becides doing
an excellent Tex Rickard promoting-
act, Jack has sparred several rounds
with each man in his training camp.
From an impartial angle Dempsey
figures both men to average about
even in abilities.
He says Schmeling
is more elusive and
a much smarter
boxer than Baer,
but the Califor-
nian has the
punch and throws
the mitts so they
hurt more, al-
though l e a vI n g
SCUMELING himself wide open
at times. J a c k
says."both can take it, and take it
a lot."
Dempsey Was Smart
Of course Dempsey is definitely
out of the fight picture forever, and
there is good reason for such a de-
cision too. Boxing is a tough game
and not many men can stand the
gaff for long. For instance, where is
the host of heavyweights that was
in the offing last fall. Outside of the
casualties of Ernie Schaaf, Monte
Munn, and Tuffy Griffiths, where are
such promising boys as Uzcudun,
Braddock, Risko, Stribling, Delaney,
Heeney, Maloney, Berlenbach, and
Levinsky? Probably you will find
them battered and short-sighted,
turned into shamblers. It doesn't;
take much head punishment to shake
up the brain and to snap the re-
flexes needed by a good fighter.

And out of this long list have sur-
vived four outstanding heavies; Jack
Sharkey, the champion; M a x
Schmeling, the ex-champ; Max Baer,
the challenger; and Primo Carnera, a
265-pound hulk. These are the boys
who could take it and keep going,
and this summer promises some ac-
tion among these "iron men," if Jack
Dempsey has his say.
Teuton Still iFavored
Schmeling so far is the favorite in
the coming bout, but anything can
happen. The Ger- -
man boy is more
experienced, b u t -
Baer is bigger and
a little faster.
Schmeling is seri-
ous while Baer is
inclined t o b e
careless. Baer has
a wicked left to
ma tch Max's
mighty left jab.
Both can punch
and take a lot. Schmeling has a trick
of lashing out a right when appa-
rently ready to relax. Schmeling will
weigh in at about 189; Baer plans on
getting down around 206.
In the background of next week's
battle looms a go between Sharkey
and Carnera somtime this summer,!
with the probability of the winner
meeting either Schmeling or Baer
in the fall. Sharkey has gained his
title largely through lucky bookings
and at least two friendly decisions
over Mickey Walker and. Schmeling.
There undoubtedly will be a mad
scramble to relieve him of it by the
few eligibles surviving the summer
activities. The Italian. Giant has
improved very well in the last year,
and with his weight and size is fig-
ured to become a real threat to all
comers. The dopesters pick him to
trounce Sharkey, should they meet.

Clint Sandusky
Named As New
Tennis Captain
Net Squad Ends Season
Breaking Even In Dual
Meets Won And Lost
Clinton D. Sandusky, '34, of Dan-
ville, Illinois, was eleced captain of
the Varsity tennis team for next year
by the members of this year's squad.
The election took place yesterday
afternoon after the tennis team had
had a group picture taken for the
Michiganensian. The new leader will
succeed Dick Snell, this year's net
team captain.
Eight Awards Made
The following "M" winners were
announced by Coach John John-
stone: Richard Snell, Utica, N. Y.;
Seymour Siegel, Grand Rapids;
Charles Nisen, Milwaukee, Wis.;
Joseph Appelt, Grand Rapids; Clin-
ton Sandusky, Danville, Ill.; Ralph
Baldwin, Grand Rapids. Secondary
awards went to Grosvenor Root, De-
troit, and John Lederle, Royal Oak.
The new captaincy selection cli-
maxed the season for the tennis
team, which, in the opinion of many,
did not live up to the expectations
that had been held earlier in the
year. The record for this was an even
division of wins and loses in the dual
meets and the team finished fifth in
the Conference meet at Chicago.
Veteran Player
Sandusky has been a member of
the team for the past two years and
this year was one of the outstanding
players on the squad.
Out of the eleven dual meets, the
Wolverines took five, suffering five
losses and one tie. Michigan won only
one of the four Conference dual
meets and tied one. The victory and
the tie were in both cases with Ohio
State; the losses were to Chicago and

Board Of Regents
To Decide Future
Of Golfers Today
Further activities of the golf team
hinge entirely on the action of the
Board of Regents in its meeting this
afternoon. There is some question of
the ability of the University to send
the team to the National Intercol-
legiate meet at Buffalo, June 26 to
July 1, and the Board must approve
extra finances for the trip. This
means that the team may or may
not be on hand to defend the sec-j
ond-place position it won on the
same course last year.
Fischer to Defend Title
Captain-elect Johnny Fischer will
defend his national title at the meet
regardless of the action of the Re-
gents. The champion won a close
match with Billy Howell of Washing-
ton and Lee last year 2 to 1, but after
easily winning the Conference title
this year, he is in very good form to
rep at.
Johnny will also compete in the
National Open, the National Am-
ateur, and perhaps the Western
Amateur tournaments this summer.

Women Netters
Start Play In
Final Rounds
Finals in the women's tennis
championship tournament comes as
the climax of more than six weeks of
play. Held up by rain and uncon-
ditioned courts, the entire arrange-
ments for the tourney had to be
A system of elimination tourneys
ran off every afternoon was chosen
as the means to the closing rounds
of the tourney. Contestants were re-
quired to come out every afternoon
and play until eliminated.
Doris Chrisman and Beatrice Mass-
man have survived this grueling
series, and will meet in the title
match this afternoon at Palmer
Field. Doris Chrisman eliminated
Doris Gimmy in the semi-final round
of her bracket, while Jo McLean lost
to Beatrice Massman.
In the mixed doubles Beartice
Massman and Harvey Bauss defeated
Alice Williams and Bob Rowe for the
title in straight sets, finishing with
scores of 6-4; 6-3.

For Quality See

AMONG THE LIST of "magnifi-
cent"sports here in Ann Arbor,
we find one usually confined to fra-
ternity freshmen. It has all the ad-
vantages of a bath, a shower, a swim
and a wrestling match rolled into
one. The sportive occasion is the'
washing of the fraternity dog.
Fraternity dogs are, characteris-
tically, large and rambunctious brutes
blessed with a particular capacity for
pure cussedness. Bathing such an
animal is an occasion for preparation
and even prayer. Hanging onto the
remote stern of a Great Dane whose
anterior portion is enduring the du-
bious pleasures of a fraternity shower
is really a sporting event, but the
man in the shower must be a cross
between Johnny Weissmuller and Jim
Londos to really do an efficient job
and be happy about it all.
Relief for the suffering freshmen
is now in sight, we learn from an
article in the Los Angeles Times by
Henri Delanci. It seems that the bus-
iness of washing dogs is now being
taken by up California by dog laun-
dries, which charge rates varying
from ten cents a pound to fivedol-
lars a hound. Laundry is called for
and delivered F.O.B. your own ken-
In Paris, according to the author
of the original story, the professional
dog washers frequent the quays along
the Seine, where they wash dogs at
some fifty cents per canine regard-
less of size. These professionals are
real sportsmen, since they run a risk
on the job. The dog is likely to escape
and roll in the dirt, thus making
their trouble all to no avail.
Consequently, they have 9 very
definite routine which minimizes the
sporting chance of the dog to get
away. After the rinse, the swimming
dog is grasped firmly by the scruff
of the neck anc hauled dripping
from the historic water, which later
fly in all directions as the animal is
allowed one, only one, good shake.
Then he is pounced upon and rolled
in a blanket, from which he is al-
lowed to escape only to be chained
upon a clean cloth placed upon the
