Man-Hunting . .
JUST RECENTLY there has been a
tendency to take' hunting and
shooting out of sport and make some-
thing of a business of them. It is all
due to a person named John Dillin-
ger, a character from a nice, placid
little mid-western town. John is num-
bered among the less conservative
citizens of the place but the home
town folks seem to regard him as
merely somewhat high-spirited and
possibly a wee bit misguided in some
of his notions
The hunting and shooting business
referred to is due to the fact that
some people have become a little nar-
row minded about John and his go-
ings-on. You see, John has allowed
the beneficial ultra-violet sun rays
shine through quite a few people by
boring holes through them with lead.
It probably wasn't so agitating until
John overstepped himself by shoot-
ing up some limbs of the law. But
other limbs of the law are always
prejudiced against that sort of thing
and consequently John has been
hunted with considerable violence
and an almost unprecedented stupid-
JOHN'S EXPLOITS have really been
something to write home about.
Of course John probably doesn't get
much time to do much writing home,
but if he did he could tell the old
folks plenty of stories that would
make the pirate Morgan look like a
little boy playing sailboat.
The average citizen might be led
to believe that with modern inven-
tions such as the radio, automobile,
airplane, and quick-firing arms at the
service of the authorities the chase
would be very, short. And with pub-
licity services and the movies to carry
the image of the man from coast to
coast, he should be recognized in very
short order.
But to tell you the truth, I can't
remember seeing any pictures of the
desperado . . only the jail he
escaped from, and it seems to me that
there has recently been some edict
against the showing of John's fea-
tures on the celluloid for some ridicu-
lous reason or other.
IN FACT, only yesterday an inno-
cent man was killed by the au-
thorities when he was mistaken for
John. They don't seem to know who
they are looking for.
Then too, these modern weapons
seem to be turned against the au-
thorities rather than used for the
benefit of the forces of the law. Yes-
terday, John shot his way out with a
machine gun, and there doesn't seem
to be any record of the authorities'
possessing one.
And the attitude of the public is an
amazing one. People don't seem to
regard John as particularly harmful
to the public welfare, but rather as
a mythical person whose exploits are
to be followed with no little admira-
tion in the columns of the daily
papers. John Dillinger is a killer and
a potential menace to every law-abid-
ing citizen. Let's all get narrow-mind-
ed about him.

pion, never has been knocked off his

Big League Veteran's Conditio
Keeps Rookie On Bench - Fish

"The ball game isn't over till there's
three out in the ninth." The Michi-
gan baseball club proved this base-
ball adage to the discomfiture of the
doubting Wildcats of Northwestern,
Saturday, at Evanston
With Northwestern leading the
Wolverines 5-3, going into the ninth,
half of the huge crowd of spectators
began filing towards the exits. How-
ever, had those fans been aware of
the do-or-die determination which
emanated from the Michigan bench
as the boys came in to take what ev-
erybody, but themselves, thought
would be their last raps, those fans
would have sat glued to their seats.
Wolverines Fool Fans
Captain Artz started it by singling
over second base. Auguston made a
fine stop of the ball but he threw
wildly to first although he had no
chance to get his man, Artz taking
second. Regeczi singled, scoring
Artz. The departing spectators hesi-
tated. Chapman singled to left, send-
ing John to second. The spectators
started back for their seats with the
tying run on second. Patchin flied
out to right, Regeczi taking third.
Waterbor tried to squeeze Regeczi
across with the tying run, but the
Northwestern pitcher handled the
ball fast and threw
him out at the
plate. Two outs,
the tying run on
second, and Russ
Oliver up.
The crowd start-
ed for the exits
again as Oliver
hadn't made a hit
in four previous
times at bat. Russ
caught hold of thej
scond ball pitched, L
smashing a hard single to right which
tied up the ball game and brought
back the fans for good.
In this spot Northwestern pulled
a bit of strategy that few college ball
teams ever attempt. With Waterbor
on second, Oliver on first, Pederson I
walked Petoskey purposely, much to
the chagrin of "Pete" and Wistert,
the cleanup man. Petoskey was sore
because they wouldn't give him a
chance to hit, and Wistert was dis-
gusted to think that they'd walk the
third man to get at the cleanup hit-
ter. The Wildcat hurler was a for-
mer high school teammate of Wis-
tert's, which made it more galling.
The strategy materialized when Wis-
tert popped out to the shortstop,
Patchin Is Versatile
In the tenth inning, Michigan went
to work immediately. Paulson was
safe on an error by the pitcher. Artz
beak; out a perfect bunt for a hit,
Paulson taking second. Another time-
ly hit by Chapman, mixed with an
infield out and a double by Water-
bor scored the two winning runs.
Art Patchin is of great. value to

liable pinch hitter, an excellent re-
lief pitcher, and a good starting
hurler. Patchin pitched the best.
game he ever hurled as a Wolverine
against Western State, Thursday,
confining the Hilltoppers to five hits,
and but for a little wildness, he would
have won easily.

only one day's rest, Art pitched the

last four innings, holding the Purple
Superstition Works
A bit of superstition also had a
hand in the Wolverines' victory. Be-
fore the game, Artz asked Coach
Fisher to change his position in the
batting order. He was willing to bat
any place but second, in which spot
he had not been hitting well. Coach
Fisher switched him to sixth place in
the batting order and placed Oliver
in the second position. Oliver singled
across the tying run with two out in
the ninth; Artz got three hits.
The Wolverines will meet Michigan
State Normal at Ypsilanti this af-
ternoon. Fisher is anxious to win

There is no lack of baseball recruits
to step into the major leagues, and
interest in baseball is not declining,
according to Ray Fisher, coach of the
Michigan nine.
Veterans are hanging on longer in
major league competition, but not
because there are not scores of ambi-
tious recruits waiting for a chance to
displace them, but because they are
able to play first-class ball for longer
than they could when Ty Cobb and
Walter Johnson and Ray Fisher him-
self were breaking into the big time.
"When I was breaking in a player
was usually through when he reached
30 or 31. The reason for this was that
the player didn't keep in condition.
Nowadays a player doesn't arrive
at training camp 30 or more pounds
overweight - at least not often. And
he keeps on playing ball for eight
or nine years after the old-time
player was through," Fisher declared.
The increased number of college
men playing in organized baseball

explains this, at least partially. "O:
half or more of the rookies comli
up now are college graduates or ha
attended college," Coach Fisher sa:

Neither college baseball teams r
semi-pro teams play consistently be
ter ball than the other, he point
out. The quality of play varies wi
the town or with the section of t
country. Coach Fisher is confide:
however, that college baseball
played in Big Ten circles is equal
or better than most semi-pro play
"If the quality of baseball is bet

said. "They have better playing cc

Mann To Lose Only Three
Men In June; Prospects
For Next Year Bright
Michigan's Varsity swimming team
will meet at the Union Thursday
night to elect a captain for the 1935
season, when the Wolverines will
seek to capture their seventh Na-
tional Collegiate championship in
nine years.
At the banquet Coach Matt Mann
will also announce this year's letter
and numeral winners.
Losing only Captain Jim Cristy,
Dick Degener, and Henry Kamienski
from this year's championship squad,
Mann needs to develop a free-style
distance man to round out a 1935
squad which, on paper, appears to
have tremendous strength.

12 Wolverines
To Compete In
Drake Relays
Strong Squad Is Expected
Make Bid For Team Title
At Des Moines
Twelve men will represent the Wol-
verines at the annual Drake Relays at
Des Moines next Friday and Satur-
day. This gives Michigan one of the
strongest teams ever entered, and
Coach Charlie Hoyt expects to annex
a considerable number of the total
The Wolverines have entered men
in the 440-yard relay, mile relay, high
jump, 100-yard dash, discus, javelin,
pole vault and two-mile events. Of
the 12 men named, 7 will be compet-
ing outdoors for Michigan for the
first time.
The squad, named following time
trials Saturday, is as follows: Capt.

Coach Johnstone is on the spot!
The first tennis match of the year
is to be played on Wednesday, and
until Tuesday night, he will not try
to pick his team. At present, a squad
of ten men are fighting for the priv-
ilege of representing the University
against the team from Ypsilanti here
on Wednesday.
To date, each man on the squad
has played five amatches. Before the
team will be chosen on Tuesday
night, each of the ten will have played
ten matches. At present, Seigel and
Kean have each won four and lost
one matches; Captain Sandusky, Ap-
pelt, Kahn, Bowles, and Eskowitz
have won three and lost two; Baldwin
and Nichols have lost four and won
one; and Durand has lost all five
of his matches.
Of the ten candidates, four are let-
termen, and one, Kean, has played
two years of Varsity tennis at Fiske
College in Tennessee. The four "M"
winners are Seigel, Captain San-
dusky, Appelt, and Baldwin.
"You ask me to pick a team of six
from that group," complains John-
stone. "Whom can you suggest? Sei-
gel is the best in contests here, but

matches he played in Varsity compe-
tition. Kean has played two years of
