WAS CONSIDERABLY put out and
not a little hurt when I went to
the opening home ball game yesterday
afternoon and did not find President
Ruthven there to throw out the first
ball. Also no band and no flag-raising.
Probably just as well about Pres.
Ruthven, however. He might have got-
ten absent minded and thrown out a

How embarrassing that would have
been for the lads. They would have
had to play with a snake all season
so as not to hurt the President's feel-
Pitcher Patchin surprised all by
proving his ability to go the whole
route and do a good job all the way
through. His curve was breaking yes-
terday like your last match when you
try to strike it.
The first two pitchers for Mich-
igan State were sophomores. Or may-
be I shouldn't dignify them with the
term "pitchers" . . , let's just call
THE SECOND ONE was a lad named
Berg, from Hamtramck. He had
an enviable windup . . one that I
never hoped to see outside the comic
section. In the course of the con-
tortions, one of Berg's hind legs was
actually raised as high as his head.

It was an awe-inspiring spectacle.
Another majestic sight was a cer-
tain play pulled off by the Spartans.
There were Michigan men on second
and third, while Regeczi was at bat.

John hit a high pop-fly to a point
just behind the pitcher's box. All the
basemen came in under it . . . all sig-
nalling for it and shouting for it.
Then just as it fell, they all stepped
back, and it fell right in the middle
of the little circle.

They all stood there stupefied by
the enormity of the thing. It looked
for a minute as though there were
going to be anargument.

But it was quickly broken up, be-
cause there was nobody to protect
any of the bases; one man scored, Re-
geczi went to second, and the man on
second took third. The tragedy of it
was that they had the ball but there
was nobody to throw it too!

Captain Tom is 6 f't 4 by 180, with
somewhat of a tan although it is only

after he gets out of Michigan, al-
though as a freshman he wasn't a
great success as a track star.
Rod Cox, '33, was responsible for
his early failures. Tom used to go
down to the field with him in his
freshman days, and "Play around
with the discus a little." But no-
body suspected that he could run,
least of all Tom. The next year, run-
ning in the frat. track meet, he was
spotted by Coach Ken Doherty, who
was so upset that they had missed
him that he post-haste summoned

A few days thereafter Thomas won
his first and most highly prized tro-
phy, for taking third in the Con-
ference quarter mile. This he wears
to this day on his "Watch chain, or
fob, or whatever you call it."
Has Had Pneumonia
When he was somewhat younger
he had pneumonia, but he played
football for two years after coming
to Michigan.. During the summer he
works for the U. S. Land Office which.
consists of surveying forests. With
the first money he ever made he
bought an automobile with assistance.
He probably wears the smallest
hats of any Michigan athlete, but
you'd embarrass him if you asked
him. As another phenomenon, he
keeps training faithfully, not smok-
ing, or dancing, and sleeping from
10 to 7.
One Under Par
At St. Andrews
ST. ANDREWS, Scotland, May 1.
- (VP) - The younger members of
America's Walker cup golfing team
have decided after two pracice rounds
that St. Andrew's famous course is
just a "pushover." The oldsters are
busy warning them there is no more
deceptive layout in the world nor any
so likely to stand up suddenly on its
hind legs and whittle the over-confi-
dent golfer down to size.
Such youngsters as Johnny Fischer
of Cincinnati and Gus Moreland of
Texas, both newcomers to British
play, were inclined to make light of
the widely known pitfalls of the course
after their first encounter with it.
Fischer, who drives the longest ball
of the team of nine, blasted out
a gaudy 72, one under par, on his
second trip around the layout, whip
Goodman, despite four three-putt
greens, returned a 74.
SCHOOL OF LAW
Three-Year Day Course
Led by Hank Greenberg and Jo-Jo
White, the Detroit Tigers came from
behind in the eighth inning to de-
feat the St. Louis Browns 5 to 4.
Greenberg, who was lifted to the
clean-up position by Manager Coch-
rane, came through with three hits,
one of which was a home run, and
some spectacular fielding. White hit
in the winning run with a triple to
share in the glory. Fischer started
for Detroit and was relieved by Mar-
berry. Hadley, Knott, and Wells
hurled for the Browns.
The Yankees stayed a half game
ahead of the Tigers by virtue of a
10 to 5 victory over Washington. Yes-

Informal Time Trials
Held With Normal Squad
Coach Charlie Hoyt's track team
held a sociable, so to speak, with a
squad of Ypsilanti thinclads yester-
day afternoon at Ferry Field. All the
Michigan performers were clocked,
but none of the times were released.
It was all part of the back-into-con-
dition movement Hoyt has initiated
since the disastrous Drake Relay ex-
The weather was fine for the time
trials. Hoyt only hopes it will hold
out so that his boys can get in proper
physical condition for the Illinois
meet to be held here Saturday.
Willis Ward and Captain Tom. El-
lerby were out in sweat suits, but lim-
ited their activity to jogging, both
