Tiger, Tiger. .. .
CITIZENS WHO FOLLOW THE PONIES in various states at the tracks
of the nation have been noticing lately the deplorable custom of teach-
ing the horses bad habits with concoctions of various kinds of knockout
drops. It may be that these parties are slightly disgruntled because the
well known sponge treated with hasheesh has been applied to the particular£
animal on which they have laid out a few frogskins to win, place, or show.
That such characters should be disgruntled is only natural inasmuch as
treating horses to the dreams of an opium-eater during the running of a
race has long been considered not very nice to say the very least. There
are also other citizens belonging to societies for the prevention of cruelties
to animals, who have been objecting to such strictly unethical practices on
the grounds that it is not the best thing for the horse.
It is to these last persons that I wish to report another case of animal
doping. I see by the papers that they have gone and shot the old Tiger1
of Detroit full of cocaine in the hopes of rejuvenating the beast. TheyI
have gone and got him a manager in the shape of a character named+
Mickey Cochrane who comes from Philadelphia of all places.
WELL THERE IS NO denying the fact that the past few years haver
been very rough indeed on the Tiger species in general. Take the casel
of the Tammany Tiger. I hear that they are also shooting hi;n full of done
after his trip through the meat-grinder last fall, and I doubt that it will do
any good.
Now in the case of the Tammany Tiger, which rapidly went from bad'
to worse, the newspaper scribes pointed out the various bad habits of the
beast to the citizens of the town and finally they caught wise to the brute.
But I have never read a line of really bad criticism on the part of the3
local newspaper characters in regard to the Detroit Tigers. Each year at
this time they always pick up the hide of the beast, or what is left over after
the preceding season. They remove it from its usual resting place somewhere
near the cellar and start to inflate it with hot air in order to make it look
really alive and dangerous.
P COURSE, each season is the same old story. The Tiger has practically
no teeth whatever, and the amazing part to me is that the good
people of Detroit and vicinity keep on hoping right until the last puncture
that the animal will stay inflated until at least reasonably late in the sea-
son. As such they qualify as true optimists, and if they go and pay their
silver to see a good exhibition of baseball, they usually qualify as fish.
Well now, with the news from the training camps coming in great guns
and the above mentioned papers printing half-page photos of ball players it
has all started again. These dope stories sound convincing, and maybe this
Mickey Cochrane party may do the old Tiger some good.
In fact all this information sounds so convincing that I am half tempted
to belieev the whole thing once more. But past experience has taught me
to regard this inflation of the poor old battered hide with considerable
pity, a wry smile, and the raised eyebrow.

Nineteen Men
In Chicaogo For
Indoor Climax
Optimism Present Among
Wolverine Track Ranks;
Have Chance For Title
Determined to wreak vengeance
on Indiana for two consecutivegCon-
ference defeats, 19 Wolverine track-
sters will vie for honors in the an-
nual Big Ten Indoor Track Cham-
pionships at Chicago this afternoon
and tonight.
A note of optimism was evident
among the Michigan contingent when
they embarked on a special train for
the scene of battle yesterday after-
noon. A determined optimism, not
over-confidence. C o a c h Charlie
Hoyt and his troupe were set on
ending thetHoosier supremacy on
the indoor track.
On the basis of dual and triangular
meet records, the Wolverines are ac-
corded about an even chance of lift-
ing the crown from the defending
In points which will be conceded
before the meet starts, Indiana and
Michigan are about even with20
each, but the Maize and Blue hope
to annex many of the remaining
points in view of their better bal-
anced team.
Indiana will once again depend
upon their two reigning stars, Chuck
Iornbostel and Ivan Fuqua.kHorn-
bostel is the acknowledged king of
the milers and half-milers, and Fu-
qua rules the 440 men.
This pair with a little help should
give Indiana first place in the mile
relay, although the Wolverines, who
have been improv-
ing of late will be
a serious threat.
For other points
Coach Billy Hayes
will have to de
pend largely on
Upon Willis ts
Ward, the great-
est tracks'ter
Michigan has seen '
in m a n y years, " AQ -
will rest most of the Wolverines
hopes. He has made up his mind
to score 15 points in winningdthe 60-
yard dash, 70-yard high hurdles and
high jump.
Michigan has reserve strength in
all these events except the high
jump, and are counted upon to win
points in almost every division.
A scoring system which would
have given Michigan the champion-
ship in 1932 and 1933 will be used
in today's meet. The first five places
in each event will score points, in-
stead of the first four. This means
that a second and fifth will count as
much as a first. The total score for
the 10 events will be 150 instead of
110. Indiana took the title with 32
points last year, but 40 will probably
be needed to win this year.
Since the entire meet is to be run
off this afternoon and evening, the
number of preliminary heats will be
cut. The coaches have agreed to
enter only two men each for the
quarter mile.
Here is approximately what is ex-
pected of the other Michigan men.
Cass Kemp, Bob Lamb and Chester
Barnes are possibilities for points in
the dash; Dick Ellerby and Harvey
Patton in the quarter-mile; Rod
Howell in the two-mile; Al Blum-
enfeld and Martin Alexander in the
shot put, and Kim Northrup in the
pole vault. The mile relay team
should take a second or third place
Moreau Hunt should be good for

third places or better in both hurdle
events; Harvey Smith a second in
the half-mile; Jack Childs a second
in the mile; Neree Alix a first or
second in the two-mile; Dave Hunn
one of the first three places in the
pole vault.

New Hoosier Coach.

"Boys, this fellow from The Daily
wants some predictions on the out-
come of the Big Ten meet next week.
Now I want each one of you to tell
me how many points you are going
to take in your event. Don't boast
and don't be too shy about it." It
was Matt Mann talking to his as-
sembled swimmers, as they sat about,
undraped, at the edge of the Intra-
mural Pool.
"We'll start off with a first for
Cristy in the 440 and second in that
event for either Robertson or Blake-
eight points.

Degener -"First, five points!"
Johnson - (modestly) "Third -

mienski, who seemed to be mutter-
ing dubiously among themselves.
"And the relay-"
"A Christmas present, Matt, first-
eight good, solid points!" the whole
sprint squad shouted in unison.
"Swell Boys, thanks. That makes
a total of 52 points for Michigan, to
a mere 29 for Northwestern, 14 for
Ohio, 10 for Iowa, nine for Illinois,
and three for Minnesota. At least no
one can say that we lack confidence!"

Ann Arbor And

Way To Finals
The Ann Arbor and Jackson high
schools won their way to the final
round of the Class A regional bas-
ketball tournament last night at the
Intramural Building. The Ann Ar-
bor High g~ a g e r s swamped Flint
Northern, 26 to 13, and Jackson took
the measure of Adrian, 22 to 14. More
than 1,700 spectators watched the
two games.
The two finalists will meet tonight
to determine the winner of the re-
gional tournament.
In the first game last night, the
Jackson cagers piled up a 10-1 lead
in the first quarter and were never
headed although the Adrian quintet
pulled up within two points at half
time, the score at the intermission
being 12-10, with Jackson leading.
Schomp Leads Scoring
Clarence Walicki, Jackson center,
led the scoring for the winners with
nine points. Don Schomp, Adrian
center, took high scoring honors with
8 Events Headline
I-M Card For March
Intramural activity will achieve
new heights during the next two or
three weeks, when eight different
All-Campus sport events will be run
off in connection with the winter
sport program.
On Monday, March 12, from 7 un-
til 8 p.m. a skating carnival will be
held at the Coliseum. There will be
220, 440, 880, mile and two mile
events. A contestant may enter in
any two events.
One of the most interesting events
of the year, the annual All-Campus
track meet is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.,
March 20. All standard events are
offered in this meet. Contestants will
be allowed to enter in only two.
Those who desire to enter the All-
Campus wrestling tourney must do so
next week, and must also be ready to
weigh in at the Intramural Building
March 19. Preliminaries will be run
off March 20, and the finals will be
decided on the night of Open House,
March 21. Weight classes are: 118,
126, 135, 145, 155, 165, and unlim-

three field goals and four free throws
for 10 points.
:Dick Warner, co-captain of the
Ann Arbor quintet, led his team in
scoring with three field goals and
three free throws for nine points.
Howard Burr, center, crowded War-
ner for scoring ho iors with four fieldj
goals for eight paints.
Burr Leads Purple
Burr's "tower" shots from the side
court that dropped through the loop
without touching the rim gave the
Taylormen the lead from the start
of the game, Flint failing to threaten
during the entire contest.
The tight defense of the Purple
and White kept the up-state cagers
from getting any "set-up" shots at
the loop. The Flint cagers were heldI
to two field goals in the second quar-
ter and one each in the last two. The
Barclaymen had many shots during
the contest but were unable to findI
the meshes, their shots falling far
short of the basket.

Out Of 45 Men
Here's a good opportunity for you
jig saw puzzle fans to come to the
fore: take the 45 men who are out
for Varsity baseball, discard the ex-
traneous ones, and fit together the
nine players who will form the lineup
on opening day.
At the present time, even Coach
Ray Fisher is sure of the occupants
of only two positions; they are the
sluggers, Capt. Avon Artz in right
field and Ted Petoskey in center.
Fisher asserted that Artz and Petos-
key are as good hitters as he ever
had. The rest of the team is now
merely a matter of conjecture, al-
though there are nine lettermen back.
It is certain that the veterans will
comprise the regular team, but just
where they will play is unknown.
Starting with first base, there are
four candidates. Regeczi, Oliver, and
Wistert, all lettermen with some ex-
prience as first sackers, and Lerner,
a member of last year's freshman
nine. Wistert will not be too serious
a contender for the first base job,
however, as he appears slated for the
regular hurling assignment.
Russ Oliver can also play second
or third, having held down the hot
corner when a thumb injury forced
Clayt Paulson out last year. George
Ford showed great potentialities as a
third baseman on last year's frosh
nine. He possesses a strong arm and
is a classy fielder. Ford should put
up a spirited battle for the position.
It is likely that the shortstop's job
will go to "Buck" Waterbor, who
played short two years ago, being
transferred to second base last year.
The infield will be composed of
experienced men, but who will hold
down which position is highly prob-
lematical.nCoach Fisher intends to
keep juggling the candidates around
until he finds the smoothest working
combination. There will be a good
chance for a hard-hitting newcomer
to break into the regular lineup, as
Coach Fisher has intimated that the
boys who wield the "old shillelah"
will the most telling effect, will re-
ceive preference.
Batting practice in the cages at the
Field House will begin Monday, and
Fisher maintains it will be a large
factor in determining the ultimate

"A total of 15 points in two events,
OK. Medley relay!" A trio stal-
warts swings with military precision
out of the shower room. They sa-
lute Mann smartly and chorus:
"First, eight points, Mr. Mann!"
Renner and Lawrence retire, leav-
ing Drysdale standing alone before
the blackboard. Mann barks: "150
Unhesitatingly Drysdale chalks up:
"First, five, points!" He should -he
has just smashed his own Conference
record to bits and endangered the
World record. From a corner Bill
Boice pipes: "Fourth place for me-
one point."
4 Events -29 Points
"Whew boys, 29 points in four
events. Try and leave a few points
for the other teams. will you?
"You sprinters, what are you going
to contribute to the cause?" Dal-
rymple, Renner, Blake, Kamienski
and Robertson look a little dubiously
at each other.
A weak voice-"You know Matt,
H i g h 1 a n d of Northwestern, and
Flachmann of Illinois are going to
be there."
"Heck, we'll get you three points
in the 100 and at least two in the
50," mutters an unknown sprinter
from the back row.
"Watch Flachmann and Highland
cut each other's throat and let us
sneak in !" yells the irrepressible
Barnard, freshman sprinter, from
across the pool.
The Breaststroke?
"How about the breaststroke?" Bob
Lawrence springs to attention.
"Well, Matt," he says, "You know
Horn, of Northwestern, is pretty
good. Put me down for third - two
points." Bob is modest. He gave
Horn a great race last week, and
should take second behind the Wild-
cat star.
"Well, boys, two events left, the
220 and the 400 yard relay. What
can you 220 men offer me?"
"I'll get points if you let me swim
in it, Matt," said Drysdale.
220 Men Dubious
"You stick to your knitting in the
backstroke, Sonny. These other stars
of mine should take first and sec-
