New Captains
Prepare For
Hard Seasons
Captains of three important fall
and winter sports, namely: cross
country, wrestling, and fencing were
chosen by the lettermen of last year
and have hopes of leading their re-
spective teams to Conference cham-
pionships this year.
Cross Country
The Varsity Cross Country team
will be captained this year by Rob-
ert A. Ostrander, '34, of Ludington..
Bob has had two years' expxerience
on the harrier team and last year
was outstanding in all the Michigan
meets. In the Conference meet he
was the first Wolverine to cross the
finish line, although placing sev-
enth in the meet.
Arthur Mosier, '34E, of Ann Arbor
is this year's leader of the Varsity
wrestling team. Art is a 155-lb.
wrestler and last year led the team
in scoring points, getting 14 for the
season's total. He was also second
in the Big Ten in which Michigan
placed outside the point-winners.
The 1933-34 fencing captain is to
be Albert Little, '34E, of Detroit. He
has won two varsity letters in fenc-
ing as a regular and has been a
consistent point-winner in Michigan
meets during the past two years.
It has been decided to discontinue
the varsity gymnastic team of which
Bill West was coach. Boxing is not
a varsity sport at Michigan, but
either gymnastic or boxing facilities
are available to all those who wish
to use them. These facilities are in
both Waterman Gymnasium and the
Intramural building.

Canadian Swim
Trophy Won By
Michigan Star
Jim Cristy Takes C. N. E.
Two - Mile Event; Sets
New Course Record
Burning up the C.N.E. course at a
record clip, James C. Cristy, captain
of Michigan's Varsity swimming
team, defeated the cream of Can-
ada's amateur natators to win the
Barker Trophy, emblem of supre-
macy of the Dominion at the two-
mile distance. The field took the
water at 7 p. m. on the evening of
Saturday, Aug. 26, in an event which
annually features the Canadian Na-
tional Exhibition.
Cristy's time was 47 minutes, 30
seconds; four minutes and nine sec-
onds better than the old mark. It
marked the first attempt of the Wol-
verine star at the two-mile distance.
The race was not won, however,
without a struggle; the Maize and
Blue swimmer was challenged al-
most throughout by Bob Pirie, youth-
ful Torontoan representing the Cen-
tral Y.M.C.A. of the Queen City.
Cristy took the lead at the outset,
but Pirie, after a ragged start,
sprinted to catch him. Going down
the mile-long expanse the Michigan
man lost the course and the Cana-
dian was quick to take advantage of
his mistake, gaining somewhat on the
turn around the barge marking the
end of the first mile.
It was neck-and-neck down the
back stretch for a half mile. Then
Cristy sprinted away to win, al-
though Pirie stayed within forcing
distange all the way. .
Ray Ruddy of New York, the de-
fending championj, was unable to
compete because of competition else-
where. The victory for the Mich-
igander marks another stage in a
long series of swimming honors for
the Wolverine captain. Among others.
he was a member of the U. S. Olym-
pic team last year, placing in his
event as the first American swimmer
to finish.
In a recent game with Lakewood
High of Cleveland, Clarence Marcks,
five-foot four, 140-lb., halfback of
Rocky River High made three touch-
down runs of 91, 60, and 70 yards for
the first Rocky River victory over
Lakewood in 11 years.

Major League Baseball Season
Produces Many Rookie Stars

Baseball is singing its 1933 swan-
song. The season was one of finan-
cial reverses. The races lost interest
at an early date as it became in-
creasingly apparent that the Wash-
ington and New York teams would
almost certainly oppose each other{
in the World Series.
Yet this year had its bright side at
well. A brand new crop of rookies,
came up, players who were bound
to catch the fans' interest for their
inspired and game fights to earn for
themselves regular positions in the
big show.
Both leagues offer men who haver
managed to stick on the payrolls
for the better part of the season,.
This does not include men who came
up for fall trials, but only those who
started the season in the majors or
who came up early enough to see
plenty of service. A great many of
these men have clinched a job for a
good many years to come.
Plenty of Outfielders
Consider the outfielders. The
American League boasts proudly of a
fine array of fly-chasing talent.
Swanson of Chicago, Fox and Dol-
jack of Detroit, Garms of St. Louis,
Galatzer and Oulliber of Cleveland,
Johnson and Finney of Philadelphia,

the infield as well. Greenberg and
Owen of the Tigers, Boss, Hale and1
Knickerbocker of Cleveland, Higgins
and Cihocki of the A's, Boken of
Washington, and Walters and Wer-
ber of the Red Sox all are carrying
on in the junior circuit. The Na-
tional loop points to Ryan and James
of the Giants, Taylor of Chicago,
Baxter, Jordan and Gyselman of
Boston, Jimmy Jordan of Brooklyn,
Crawford of St. Louis, Bleuge of Cin-
clinnati and Young of Pittsburgh.
Another outstanding group!
More Catchers Needed
Catchers are a scarcer quantity,
but here too the quality runs high.
The best of the lot is unquestion-
ably Frankie Pytlak of Cleveland, but
Pasek of Detroit, Bolton of Wash-
ington, Richards of the Giants, Lewis
of the Cards, Crouch of the Reds,
Finney of Pittsburgh and Outen of
Brooklyn also have won acclaim.
A corps of pitchers has showed
its mettle under fire. Those in the
American League to hang on are
Heving of the Pale Hose, Rowe of
Detroit, Knott and McDonald of the
Browns, Pearson and Bean of the
X[ndians, Peterson} of Philadelphia,
and Van Atta and Devens of the

Wolverine Golf
Captain Among
Country's Best
John W. Fischer, Jr., Michigan's
1933-34 golf captain, has probably
done as much to boost the prestige
of his school as any other collegiate
golfer in the country. Johnny hails
from Cincinnati and Ft. Thomas, Ky.
and at the beginning of his senior
year already has an imposing record
built up for himself in the golfing
Aside front being Big Ten, golf
champion for the last two years he
has been the sparkplug of the varsity
in winning the Conference title dur-
ing those years. Then too, Johnny
came through nobly for Michigan
last year and made - himself inter-
collegiate champion. He undoubted-
ly would have repeated that feat
