Medal Honors Ahead Of
Dayton And L. David
University of Michigan golfers
opened the spring home sports sched-
ule yesterday by administering a
complete rout to the Michigan State
team on the University course.
The Wolverines swept all three
foursome matches and all six singles
matches for a 27 point total, while
the Spartans failed to garner a point.
Chuck Kocsis, State amateur
champion playing number one for
the Wolverines, toox medal honors
with 36-37 for a 73, one over par.
Captain Eddie Dayton and the soph-
omore Larry David each took 77 and
Cal Markham turned in a 38-40 card
for a 78 total.
Woody Malloy with 82 and Carroll
Sweet with 87 completed the Wolver-

next best score.
The Wolverine golfers will open the
Conference dual meet season on the
University course next Saturday,
meeting Northwestern. The meet,
originally scheduled for later in the
season, is expected to be one of the
closest on the schedule as the Wild-
cats, with Minnesota, have been
picked to extend the Wolverines in
their defense of Big Ten honors.
The course, open for play since
Wednesday, was in first class shape,
despite early spring rains.

Spring And A Maid
Bring Hefty Heave
Who was the unidentified young
woman who pesterday so inspired
"Skip" Etchells, star sophomore
discus man, that he tossed the
platter on a special exhibition
heave two feet farther than his
previous best throw of the after-
Etchells had just finished his
last official throw in the discus
trials when the feminine element
entered the picture. The crowd
parted, affording the aforemen-
tioned young lady an unobstructed
view of the throwing ring, Etchells
spun around, and the discus sailed
through the air to land two feet
beyond the previous best mark.

For Foreign Golf Wars
Johnny Fischer, Wolverine golf
star who left school in February to
join the American Walker Cup team,
sailed yesterday for Great Britain in
company with the squad of nine on
the quest for the famous cup.
The team, considered by critics
as "about as powerful as any that
America has ever sent to the interna-
tional wars" looks forward to ten days
of practice before the two-day meet
begins on historic St. Andrewvs May

As Waterbor Doubles In
Extra Inning
EVANSTON, Ill., April 21. - (Spe-
cial) -The Wolverine baseball team
evened its first Big Ten series with
Northwestern today at Roycemorec
Field, rallying late to defeat the
Wildcats in a thrilling 10-inning
Fine relief work by Art Patchin on
the mound and at the plate pulledy
the game out of the fire for the Wol-
verines. With men on first and secondt
in the seventh and with Michigan
trailing four to 1 Patchin was sent in
to pinch-hit for Harry Tillotson, who1
had started on the mound. He hit
the first ball pitched cleanly into deep;
right for three bases, Paulson and
Chapman, who had both singled, tal-
lying to make the score four to three.j
Northwestern scored in the eighth
without a hit but the fighting Wol-
verines came back with two runs in
the ninth with two out to tie the
game, five to five.
Singles by Avon Artz and Ted
Chapman, followed by a crashing
double by Stan Waterbor pushed
across a two-run lead which Patchin
protected in fashion in the rest of the
Lefty Harris started on the mound
for the Wildcats and was nicked for
three hits in six innings. Pederson,
his successor, was hit hard in the
ninth and tenth.
The Wolverines showed the batting
power which characterized their east-
ern invasion, garnering a total of 13
hits, although they were guilty of
three errors in the field. The Purple
nicked the two Wolverine moundsmen
for a total of seven hits.

36 Hole Medal Tourney
On Golf Card Next Week
A 36-hole medal score tournament
to determine the personnel of fresh-
man and Varsity golf squads has been
announced for Wednesday and Thurs-
day by Coach Thomas Trueblood.
All scholastically eligible and de-
sirous of trying out for either squad
must post attested scores in this tour-
ney, it was said.
Although six men have already
played on the Varsity team the com-
plete roster yf the ten man squad

will be determined by this tourna-
ment. Playing privileges will be
awarded to all qualifying.
The freshman squad, under Alex
Jolley, captain of the 1933 links squad,
will also compete in a 36-hole meet,
those qualifying receiving greens priv-
ileges. 18 holes on each day, play be-
ginning at 1:30 p.m.

Tenth Commandment ..
Tad Wieman... .
admirer of intercollegiate sports
and contests, it is definitely a change 1
of attitude when I find myself facing
about in the spring when those of
us who are just marginally fair in
some pastime turn again to the great
out-of-doors and set ourselves to the
unpleasant task of breaking in all
over again and getting mighty stiff
doing it.
But it is just too much to go out
on the tennis court and labor and
labor to get perhaps ten really good
shots in the first afternoon of play
and then return to watch the varsity
boys easing them over to tick the
chalk lines in the corners or chop
them dead over the net on a drop-
Likewise it is downright discourag-
ing to the "just-fair" golfer to go out
for an afternoon of well-sliced drives
and watch the varsity boys send them
screaming high and straight for a
good 225 to drop straight to the green
or to pitch long and short into
bunkers all afternoon and then see
an expert with a clockwork stroke
lay one fifty yards dead to the pin.
No, in the spring I am not in fa-
vor of intercollegiate sports because
watching the varsity squads causes
a great deal of sin. Or does coveting
thy neighbor's golf or tennis stroke
come under the Tenth Command-
ment? I wonder.
ACCORDING to Tad Wieman,
Princeton line coach and former
Michigan head coach, "in the East,
the players and community don't
look at athletic contests with such a
life-and-death attitude. If a game is
lost, it is just so much water over
the dam."
I would like to quarrel with that
statement. Princeton has been striv-
ing to build up a team for a couple
of years now. If such an emphatic at-
titude in regard to football had not
been built up, probably by the alumni
and the financial condition of the
Athletic Association, such a fine and
valuable line coach as Mr. Wieman
would not be there now. And Yale is
doing the same thing at present.
Perhaps Mr. Wieman's statement
would have been a little bit more ac-
curate if put in the past tense. But
can we forget the report of Prince-
ton's marvelous freshman outfit that
came through from the East this
year? New York sports writers face-
tiously called them "Princeton's for-
tunate coincidences." Yes, I think that
Princeton is pretty well in the foot-
ball business right now.
Kipke, Little Deride
Football 'Bugaboo'
Returning from Cleveland where
he spoke before a thousand mem-
bers of the Physical Education Asso-
ciation Thursday, Coach Harry Kipke
was on hand for football practice yes-
Both Kipke and Lou Little, coach of
the Columbia Rose Bowl victors, de-
clared that the "bugaboo" of football
overemphasis was a thing of the past,
that no "menace" is attached to col-
lege gate receipts, and that football
stimulated an interest of these in the
stands for active sports participation.
