performance for the Senators in his
first year in the big leagues marked
him as in the class with any first-
ranking infielder.
As far as directing ability is con-
cerned, Bill Terry appears to hold
the upper hand. Bill has been in
the big time for a longer time and
has more experience. Last year the
Giants finished in sixth place and
at the start of this season were con-
ceded a lucky first first division
place, no higher than fourth. Terry
whipped the team into the pennant
fight at the outset and imbued it
with the spirit of champions.
Cronin, on the other hand, had a
possible league champion to start
with. Washington had high hopes
of a pennant and the psychological
advantage of having beaten the
world's champions, the New York
Yankees, in the year's games played
between the Yanks and the Senators.
However, C'ronin has to guide him
the experience of Clark Griffith, the
president of the Senator Club and
a former manager and player. The
Senators have been easier to work
with because they have a more ex-
perienced roster than the Giants
have. Almost the entire team, with
the exception of Cronin, has been,
playing major league. baseball for
over two years.

it have to be revised to fit the capabilities of these men.

LOUIS WESTOVER turned in a good performance in the running line
Saturday, while Zit Tessmer had an off day. Oliver and Rudness
completed the second-string backfield, and they turned in a fair account
- of themselves.
George Bolas, sophomore quarterback, did some nice work in returning
pints, passing, and tackling. Ward and Petoskey, Wistert and Austin,
k, Kowalik and Savage comprised that famous first-string forward wall, with
n Charles Bernard in the center position. Willard Hildebrand demonstrated
f his versatility by playing alternately at guard and tackle throughout a
e_ large portion of the session.
re Whitey Wistert was called back out of the line to throw one long
es pass Saturday, and it went right to Everhardus although the receiver lost
i- it in the sun. Fred Ratterman played at quarter on one of the White
- teams on the field Saturday; his' leg handicapped his work considerably.

7T ALL HAPPENED LAST JUNE, after the cessation of hostilities on the
iipart of the University known as the end -of final examinations. We
entered the ante-room to the Holy-of-Holies, down in University Hall.'
After a wait of fifteen minutes we were ushered to the threshold of the
inner Sanctum, where we paused in doubt. (How does one address the
President . .. President Ruthven, Dr. Ruthven, Mr. Ruthven?) We chose
the safe middle course and said, "How do you do, sir?" to the kindly
harassed-looking man who greeted us.
The conversation turned to the Sports page. Here Dr. Ruthven said,
"You know, they've been doing something over there for years, which, to
me as a biologist, is highly displeasing." Paling, we inquired what it was,
although we were flattered to think that the President was numbered
among our readers.
It seems that the staff in past years has fallen into the habit of abbre-
viating the term Wolverines into Wolves, when space in headlines did not
permit the inclusion of the longer word. Dr. Ruthven took pains to point
out that the Wolf was in no way related to the Wolverine, and consequently
the terminology is incorrect. The upshot of the entire affair was that we
promised not to use the offending word any more, and so also to request
the staff.
But now what are we to do? We are left stranded, high and dry, so to
speak, without any short words to refer to Michigan's totem animal. In
dispair, we turned to the Latin name for the species, finding small comfort
in the information that the Wolverine is known to scholars as the glutos
luscus . . . translated as "the glutton." Any inspirations from readers will
be thankfully received, possibly used. At any rate, the President, like the
proverbial customer, is always right.
ACCORDING TO RELIABLE REPORT, John Fischer, captain-elect of
Michigan's varsity golf team, will not be in school next semester. This
outstanding golfer, quarter-finalist in the National Amateur year before
last and holder of the National Intercollegiate title, has been appointed
Secretary of the board in control of the latter tourney.
Charles Koesis, who has distinguished himself as a golfer in Fischer's
class of competition, has returned to the Maize and Blue ranks this year
after a year's absence. He will not be eligible for competition until next
semester. Woody Malloy, Ann Arbor's top club-swinger, is also ineligible
for University competition until then, but prospects for another Conference
championship aggregation at the very least are considered bright.

Lou Gehrig, the new "King of
Swat" for the Yankees, has about
the most impressive string of records
of any major league baseball player
for the time he has been active in
the game. "Columbia" Lou became
a regular for the New York Ameri-
cans in 1925, and so far he has rated
the gold star for perfect attendance.
On Aug. 17 he added another rec-
ord to his list by playing in his
1308th consecutive game since lie
went in that first game as a pinch
This achievement in itself would
make any manager proud to have
the man behind it; but Gehrig has at
least eight more record collections.
In 1927 Lou broke the American
League mark for runs batted in with
174, breaking that mark in 1931 with
Gehrig was the first major league
player to hit three homers in one
game, performing this feat on three
different occasions -June 23, 1927,
May 4, 1929, and May 22, 1930.
In 1927, Lou was chosen the most
valuable player in the American
League. The next year he set two
World Series records by batting in
nine runs in the 1928 series and pol-
ing out four homers in three con-
secutive series games.
The 1932 season saw him add a
unique feat to his career by hitting
four home runs in one game June
3, which equalled a 36-year-old rec-
ord held jointly by Bobby Lowe and
Ed Delehanty.
