Taking Hurling Role
Eleven victories and four defeats
were recorded by the Michigan base-
ball team on the trip to the Orient
last summer. The Wolverine players,
won ten contests in Japan and scored
a single win over a colored team in
Honolulu on the trip over.,
Harley McNeal held the Royal
Giants to five hits and scored a 3 to
1 victory in the first game ofthe
jaunt, the stop-over contest in Hono-
lulu. McNeal also twirled the opener
in Japan, the Maize-and-Blue nine
running up a 5-3 win. Successive hits
by Daniels, Manuel, McNeal, and
Superko in the second inning cinched
the contest.
The second battle with Sundai was
captured by the Wolves, 4 to 3, in
12 innings, with Jack Tompkins do-
ing the hurling. McNeal dropped the
next gamer against Meiji, however, 68.
to 2. A blistered heel robbed Mac
of his usual effectivness. Michigan
avenged themselves two days later,
however, by slugging out an 8-7 vic-
tory, five runs in the fourth inning
proving the deciding factor.
Down Hosel Twice
Another slugfest went to Michigan
by a 12-4 margin, Art Patchin pitch-
ing his second game in three 'days.
McNeal returned to the mound to set
down Hosei,'5-2. Jack Tompkins had
a brace of triples and two passes in
five trips to the plate in this game.
Hosei dropped the second game of
the series, 7-1, although they got 9
safeties, the same nuumber made by
the Wolverines.
Ueno of Keio outpitched Patchin to
ring up a 2 to 1 victory for the local
team in the ninth game of the trip.
Three errors were costly to the Wol-
verines. In another hard fought bat-
tle three days later, McNeal won a
4 to 3 decision over Haigama of Keio.
Waseda made 11 hits off of the de-
livery of Patchin in the succeeding
game but lost, 5 -to 3,-when the de-
fense weakened and committed three
errors. Waseda rallied to win the
third game, 9 to 5, but McNeal won
from Meiji in the first game piyed,

Successful Coach

Coach Ray Fisher and his Michi-
gan baseball team have returned
from their Japanese tour with a very
creditable record. The squad has a1
percentage of .733, having won eleven
of their fifteen starts against Japan-
ese college teams. Hosei University,
guest of the Wolverines here, played
host to the diamond squad in the,
country of the Rising Sun.

in Osaka. The score was 5-3, the
battle going 12 innings. Akagi blanked
the Wolves the following day, how-
ever, but Harley McNeal concluded'
the trip by setting Kansai down with
five hits registering a 6-1 win.
Gene Braendle led the team in hit-
ting, although Tompkins spurted in
the middle of the trip to become a
dangerous clean-up batsman. McNeal
and Patchin split the hurling duties.
Tompkins hurled early in the trip but
injured his shoulder'sliding into base
and was lost as an available mounds-
man. The fielding was weak in spots,
because, according to-Coach Fisher,;
of nerves, and tension resulting from
postponements o n account o f bad

Football Team
Points Toward
Buckeye Battle
Wolves Not Overconfidenth
As Result Of Wildcat
TriumIph, Says Kipke
With the Northwestern game a
matter of the past, Coach Harry
Kipke is pointing his squad for the
game with Ohio State, to be played
Saturday at Columbus. The victory
over the Wildcats last Saturday has
not left the squad over-confident,
and special precautions are being
taken for the Buckeye game.
In talking about the team's play
in the Northwestern game, Coach
Kipke said that he was highly
pleased with the brand of football
his squad displayed, although, he
said, there were several weak spots
in the line that he would have to
strengthen. On the whole, he was
satisfied with the play of the team
for so early in the season, and was
encouraged as to the possibilities for
the ,future.
The players suffered no serious
physical disabilities as a result of
Saturday's game, and are ready to
prepare for the game with Ohio
Rain forced the practice indoors
this afternoon. The early part of the
practice was devoted to a short punt-
ing drill, and for the rest of the time
the squad polished up its old plays
and practiced some new plays in pre-
paration for the next game. Quite a
bit of the practice session was de-
voted to perfecting the aerial attack.
In an effort to bolster up the weak
spots in the line, Coach Kipke used
Savage and Singer, from last year's
reserve squad; at guards. These men
carried out their parts in the var-
ious plays satisfactorily.
With Harry Newman absent from
today's practice, Everhardus was
passing the ball. His passes were ac-
curatet, and few of them were in-
complete. Williamson and Ward did
a good job on the receiving end.
Coach Kipke concluded the prac-
tice by having the team run through
some new plays that lie had given
PRINCETON, N. J., Oct. 10.-(,P)-,
Art Lane, Princeton's veteran right
tackle, will be lost to the Tiger eleven
for most of the season because of a
broken collar bone suffered during
the Columbia game Saturday. An
examination after the game revealed
the broken bone.

H. . Salsinger's story in the De- 1
l troit News spoiled the North-
western game for at least seven c
people, including ourselves. Several k
fans have spoken to us about it. C
Mr. Salsinger is Grantland Rice's
representative in this section of the t
country, yet he has demonstrated i
countless times that he is not a foot-
ball critic. When he is at variance l
with Harvey T. Woodruff of the Chi-
cago Tribune, Merle Oliver of the As-
sociated Press, Tod Rockwell of the
Detroit Free Press, Bud Shaver of the
Detroit Times, and other prominent I
football writers in this section of the
country, one can question Mr. Sal-
singer's ability. If he differed once,
it would matter little, but when it
happens time after time it leads us
to think less and less of Mr. Sal-
All last year Mr. Salsinger's col-
umn spoke of Michigan's dull game,
uninteresting and devoid of thrills.
The first two games of the current
season have demonstrated that Mich-
igan has opened up, in part because
of defensive weaknesses, and partly
because of a strong passing attack.
This was what Mr. Salsinger has
asked for.
How'does he meet this modifica-
tion? With personal anti-semitic har-
angues against Harry Newman, with
propaganda for Pug Rentner, and
with a prejudiced view of the facts,
all these are Salsinger's utensils in
describing the most exciting game
played on Michigan's field since the
Harvard game of three years ago.
Salsinger has done more to hurt
Michigan athletics than any other
sport writer in recent years. He was
so interested in the biggest game in
the country last Saturday that he
brought along his son for an aid,
guaranteeing expert help on impor-
tant points.
We doubt Salsinger's ability when
he writes that it was Newman's me-
chanical play, rather than his quar-
terbacking, that made him valuable
to the attack. Whereas in reality
this s a m e "mechanical" Newman
made more yards in runback of punts
than the Northwestern team made by
rushing al lafternoon.
The game was packed with thrills,
yet Salsinger called it a game of slug-
gish play. He described the Wildcat
touchdown as a 56-yard march, al-
though her attack included two short
forward passes. In the play by play,
his opinion, or guess, is not borne out
by the facts. Just before the score,
Sullivan and Olson made one first
down through the line, and Rentner
went 23 yards on a pass. Potter made
