By AL NEWMAN--
Competition....
FEEL THAT IT IS MY DUTY t
warn the local Athletic Board i
control due to the fact that some.
body is getting ready to muscle in o
the football racket.
Of course, there are always Anm
Arbor High School and St. Thoma
in competition with the University fo:
local football interest, and there ar
the small boys that play during the
fall afternoons on campus to a crows
of anywhere from five to a hundre
undergraduates with nothing better t
do. But that, after all, is not ver:
serious.
There is a man named Mr. Clar
who is going to coach a Detroit pr
team in the National league nex
season, and he is getting quite a fe
good players lined up, both fron
Michigan and other places. He is re
ported as claiming to have an agree
ment with Herm Everhardus.
Professional football, at its outset
did not amount to very much. Th
crowds wanted the college atmospher
instead of the spectacle of twenty
two business men going about thei
vocation, supposedly with no moreen
thusiasm and snap than a retire
broker clipping bond coupons befor
the depression. Of course recentl:
such exertion hasn't been particularl;
worth the trouble.,
T ANY RATE, the pros starte
coming up in the world as th
public began to be educated to ap
preciate the finer points of the gain
rather than the trimming on the ban
uniforms and what is coming out o
the flask. And the professional gam
began to take in money. The technics
part of the game came to the fore.
At 'present people in the section
where there are both college and pro
fessional teams are located, usuall
take their choice between going t
the. local institution of learning o:
Saturday or to the professional par
on Sunday. Due to prices, taking i:
botiis next to prohibitive. So it look
like a local price war.
The ironical part of the whole sit
uation is that the man who did mor
than anything else to make the Amer
Ican. public appreciate fine footba:
above merely enthusiastic football i

Ball Team To
Play Western
State Today

'Da Preem' Gets In Shape With Fancy Posing

Patchin To Start Against
Strong Hilltopper Nine
At Kalamazoo
The Michigan baseball team will
leave at 11 a.m. today for Kalamazoo,
where Western State will be played
this afternoon. After the game, the
team will depart for Evanston, where
Northwestern will provide the oppo-
sition for the Wolverines in the Con-
ference inaugural, Friday, with a
second encounter between the teams,
Saturday.
In recent years, the Teachers from
Kalam zoo have turned out one of
the beet nines in the Mid-West, and
this year is no exception. Western
State defeated the University of
Chicago 8-4, in its opening game, and
followed it up with a 14-7 win over
Notre Dame.
Brandt, a lefthander, will pitch
against the Wolverines, and he will
be a tough customer to beat.
Fisher Gunning For Western
Coach Ray Fisher is pointing his
boys for the game today, as he is
very desirous of humbling the strong
Western Staters, who have in recent
years, taken the spotlight away from
the Maize and Blue on the diamond.
Because he showed more stuff on
the training trip than any other
Michigan hurler, Art Patchin has
d r a w n the pitching assignment
against Western State. Fisher will
still have two of his best pitching
bets in "Whitey" Wistert and Harry
Tillotson to use against the Wild-
cats. Fish, Settle, and Wilson will
be available for relief duty.
Northwestern will face Michigan
with a supposedly strong hitting team.
Jake Sullivan, Nelson Culver, Roy
Auguston ,and Milt Rosenfeld, all
good hitters, are the heavy guns in
the Wildcat attack.
Harris Will Pitch For N. U.
Co-Captain Herb Harris, one of
the most able southpaws in the Con-
ference during the last two years,
will probably face the Wolverines
Friday, with Lagger, a 200 pound be-
hemoth whose main asset is a good
fast ball, or Pederson, another left-
hander, coming back in the second
game of the series.
Coach Fisher's slugging sextet of
Waterbor, Artz, Petoskey, Wistert,
Paulson, and Regeczi, all of whom
have amassed batting averages well
over .300, on the Eastern trip, can
outslug any team in the Conference,
if they treat Conference pitchers in
the same manner they treated the
Eastern hurlers.
The outfield is airtight defensively.
John Regeczi, in left field, is very
fast in getting under fly balls, and he
has a fine arm. Ted Petoskey, cen-
terfielder, covers more ground than
the tarpaulin in the stadium, and
Captain Artz in right field never drops
a fly ball,
If the infield improves on its show-
ing in the East, Michigan's ball club
will be a serious titular contender.
The team will line up against West-
ern State with the same batting order
of Waterbor, Artz, Petoskey, Oliver,
Wistert, Paulson, Regeczi, Chapman,
and Patchin.
The 16 ball players who are making
the trip are; pitchers, Wistert, Patch-
in, Tillotson, Wilson, Settle, Fish,
infielders; Lerner, Paulson, Waterbor,
Oliver, Parker, Bolas; catcher, Chap-
man; outfielders, Artz, Petoskey, Re-
geczi.

Ten Golfers To
Be Carried. On
VarsitySquad
A Varsity golf squad of 10 men
and a freshman squad of eight will be
carried throughout the season, ac-
cording to Thomas Brueblood, coach.
Capt. Ed. Dayton, Cal Markham,
George David, Carroll Sweet, Chuck
Kocsis, and Woody Malloy are the
men who have won Varsity standing
at present, the other four positions
remaining still open. Little is known
of the freshman candidates at pres-
ent. To retain positions on these
squads it is necessary to turn in three
properly attested 18-hole scores each
week. Members of the squads, how-
ever, may play without fee.
About 100 golfers took advantage of
fine weather to tour the University
course as it was opened for the sea-
son yesterday. Under the direction of
groundskeeper Bill Slack the course,
despite recent inclement weather, has
been brought into a condition better
than that of the same time in 1933.
The prices of last season will continue
in effect this year.

W OM E N'S
SPORTS
Spring Activity
Now that summer weather is really
here (that should precipitate a sleet
storm this afternoon) Palmer Field
begins to look once more like an ath-
letic field again rather than a duck
pond. The clay courts will be ready
for play by the end of the week, and
the archery and baseball courts are
open now.
Since the entry lists for the indi
vidual sport tournaments were not
all turned in before vacation, the
playoffs have been held up. However
drawings will be made this week-end
with the names already turned in,
and play will start Monday regard-
less of everything except weather.
Consequently all these remaining lists
must be turned in at either Barbour
Gym or the Field House by Friday
of this week.
Baseball
Alpha Xi Delta has already been
out for a practice on the baseball dia-
mond. The Alpha Phi house will be
represented by two teams in the Class
A tourney. More than 20 houses have
