YOU CANNOT KEEP THE GOOD old American Sports fan down. Of
course, during recent years he has gone to ball games, horse races, hockey
battles, and wrestling matches with a good deal of calm and general quietude
of mind. But the era of sports for all is arriving.
Yes, it is easy to see it coming. Whether the urge to participate in
these events has been inculcated into the minds of the citizens by public
parks and playgrounds or perchance by the experiences of many in being
involved in things by having a wrestler tossed out of the ring and into the
lap is still a question. It is a fact, however, that the public has taken to
entering into the spirit and activity of professional games with gay abandon
and a pop-bottle in either hand.
Take for example the celebrated hockey riots of the past winter. Hitherto
most of the clawing, mayhem and stick-swinging was strictly the affair of the
players. But lately the spectators have wanted to play also, and the unwary
hockeyist who wanders over too close to the wall during one of these slight
misunderstandings is likely to find himself grabbed by some character who
puts the slug on him merely because that is the thing that is being done
on the ice and the citizen does not want to be left out of it.
IT GOT SO BAD last winter that you could not take your old Aunt AgathaI
to a hockey game . . . that is, and sit down anywhere near the ice. Of'
course it depends upon your old Aunt Agatha. She might be of the military
type. There are aunts and aunts.
At any rate, the tendency is carrying over into baseball. Over in Albany

bottle throwing contest with the um-
pire as the target. It was during a
ball game between Toronto and Al-
bany. The cash customers became
displeased because it was the last half
of the tenth with the score thirteen
to eight in favor of Toronto and there
were two outs. They were trying to
hint to the umpire that he ought to
call the game on account of darkness.
The umpire did not respond to the
hint and forfeited the game to To-
ronto because there was not adequate
police protection. Seems to me that
it would have been wiser to give the
game to Albany because there was in-
adequate police protection.

The Hilltoppers scored in the first
and second innings when Patchin's

Wistert, playing at first, in the fourth
and in the sixth innings.

the first. He singled to center with
one out, advanced to third when

The Wolverines will continue on to
Evanston tonight, where they will

Wildcats tomorrow. "Whitey" Wistert,
number one Michigan pitcher, will
probably get the call on the mound,

COACH RAY FISHER
Hoyt Will Take
To Des Moines
Tracksters To Start Trials
Tomorrow To Determine
Drake Relay Entries
Two sprint relay teams and the
title-defending mile team as well as
several individual performers prob-
ably will represent Michigan at the
Drake Relays next Friday and Sat-
urday, thereby giving Michigan one
of the largest delegations it has had
,n the track program at Des Moines
in several years.
The make-up of the relay teams will
lepend on the outcome of trials to
e held tomorrow and others to be
held the middle of next week.
It appears now that Willis Ward,
Bob Lamb, Cass Kemp, and Dave
Barnes will make up the quarter-mile
eam, although Barnes may be re-
)laced. Coach Hoyt figures that this
luartet will run its race in around 42
;econds if weather and track condi-
"ions are satisfactory.
Captain Tom Ellerby, Ed Lemen
:nd Harvey Smith are sure of places
_n the mile relay team. Harvey Pat-
ton appears to -be the choice for the
Iourth man, but he is getting strong
4ompetition from Jake Kaufman, Ben
Starr, Dick Ellerby and Tony Sera-
kos. Serakos, a failure indoors, is
:oming along rapidly-now. The team
.s figured to run its race in around
3:20, a second slower than the time
made by the Michigan quartet which
won last year. Lamb, Kemp, Lemen
md Tom Ellerby probably will make
ap the half-mile team, if Hoyt de-
sides to enter a team in that event.
