Blues' Defeat TYellows' In Spring Football

Game, 28 To


Veteran Team


Sidelights Of Wolverine Nine's
4 To 1 Triumph Over Illinois

Rolls Up Score
In Second Half
Swarm Of Passes Brings
Most Open Game Ever
Seen In Stadium
Displaying the most open type of
football ever seen in the Michigan I
Stadium, Coach Harry Kipke's Blue 1
team yesterday defeated Franklin;
Cappon's Yellow jersied outfit, 28 toj
12, in the intra-squad game which
annually climaxes the spring train-
ing season.
Kipke's veterans, expecting an over-
whelming victory, were surprised to
find themselves holding a scant two-
point margin over the less-experienced
Yellow team at the end of the first
half, but during the closing minutes
of the game the heat seemed to tell
on the youngsters and the Blues ap-
peared to gain at will, although the
Yellows revived for one play just be-
fore the final gun, to score their sec-
ond touchdown.
Blues Score First
Matt Patanelli, standout candidate
for the Chicago Alumni Trophy, put
the Blues in the lead early in the
game when he intercepted Pillinger's
lateral pass on the Yellow 32 yard line
and ran for a touchdown. Jares' at-
tempted place kick was wide.
Instead of being discouraged the
Yellows fought back viciously, and,
aided by a 15-yard penalty, drove the
Blues back to their 25-yard line. Here
the latter attempted a fake kick play,
but fluked it and Pillinger recovered
a fumble for the Yellows on the Blue
three-yard line. From here the Yel-
lows punched it over in two plays.
Again the kick was wide.
Blues Get Safety
Four plays later Amrine kicked to
Lutomski, playing safety for the Yel-
lov's, who touched the ball before it
rolled into the end zone. Attempting
to pick up the ball and run it out, he
was hit by Meyers in the end zone, for
a safety.
During the second quarter the two
teams fought on about even terms,
neither scoring. Both outfits used a
host of substitutes arid depended
mainly of forward and lateral passes
to advance the ball.
Vincent Aug, Notre Dame transfer,
was chiefly responsible for the Blues'
second touchdown, when, after run-
ning back a punt to the Yellow 38-
yard line, he completed passes to
Johnson and Patanelli to carry the
ball over. Patanelli's left-footed place
kick was wide.
Triplehorn Runs 65 Yards
Howard Triplehorn gave the guests
their biggest single thrill of the after-
noon later in the third quarter when
he ran 65 yards through the entire
Yellow team to score standing up.
James made the first successful place
kick of the day to make the score
21 to 6.
Cappon threw fresh reserves into
the fray but couldn't stem the Blue
tide, Kipke's team marching for an-
other touchdown from the kickoff.
James took a lateral from Johnson
on the kick and ran to the Yellow
40. On the next play Aug ran around
left end behind an impressive phalanx
of blockers, carrying the ball to the
nine-yard line. From there Sweet and
James plunged over for the touchdown
in two attempts. James' kick was
again good and the score stood 28
to 6.
Barnett Scores for Blue
After the Blues took the ball on
downs deep in their own territory as
the end of the game neared, Ever-
hardus tried to kick out of danger
but his boot was short and Barnett
took it on the Blue 25-yard line to
sprint over standing up. This time
Liffiton tried the field goal; it was

With passing playing a large role,
Aug for the Blues, and Dave Barnett,
for the Yellows, had a good chance
to show their wares. Aug appeared to
have the advantage, although he had
more capable receivers in Patanelli,
Johnson, James and Jennings, than
did Barnett. Jennings, reserve quarter
for the Blues, also got away some suc-
cessful passes.

Grand Slam . ...
Colgate Football... .,
THE WOLVERINES turned out to
be just a bunch of harsh irritants
to the Fighting Illini in yesterday's
three contests. Michigan tallied a
slam in three sports . . . track, base-
ball, and golf.
Well I hate to see Illinois go down
like that but I will say that it serves
them right for the scare they gave
me last fall at that memorable foot-
ball game.
The ball contest was a good one and
surprisingly well-attended in contrast
with the home opener against the
Spartans this week. Michigan won,
4-1. Whitey Wistert pitched good ball
throughout the game.
Petoskey deserves mention for the
outstanding diversion of the event.
Having stolen second, Ted held up the
game for about five minutes by worry-
ing the Illinois pitcher. The second
baseman, the shortstop and Petoskey
played a glorified game of ring-
around-the-rosy for quite a while. Fi-
nally, the pitcher turned resolutely
to the plate and threw one that the
batter couldn't have hit with a flag-

'WITH A BRILLIANT fanfare of
publicity, Andy Kerr's Varsity
Red Raiders of Colgate closed the
spring football season in a scrimmage
against a stellar alumni eleven. Re-
markable were the rules in force . . .
five downs, twelve men on a side, lift-
ing of the penalty on incomplete for-
ward passes in the same series of
downs, a point scored for each first
down. Object of the scrimmage was
the testing of Kerr's ideas on the bol-
stering of the offense to increase
spectator-interest in the game.
*~ * *
spring varsity and sub teams closed
the season with a regulation game,
in which the main object was the test-
ing of new material. During the
brief time in which I observed the
contest, Sweet, Ford, Jennings, and
Everhardus the younger were stand-
outs for the Blues in conspicuous
Emphasis on the offense in the
rules of the national game is some-
thing that you will not soon see Mich-
igan coaches, advocating, unless ma-
terial and systems change rapidly. For
years, the Michigan game has de-
pended upon a defensive emphasis
over the offensive part of the play.

The Wolverine baseball team broke
the Illinois jinx yesterday by handing
the Illini their first defeat of the
season, 4 to 1.Illinois won three in a
row from Michigan. starting with a
3 to 2 triumph at Champaign two
years ago, and continuing her swayj
with 14 to 10 and 12 to 1 victories'
last year.
,k * *.
Yesterday's win was sweet revenge
for Coach Ray Fisher and his ball
players, especially "Whitey" Wistert.
"Whitey" had been trying ever since
his sophomore year, to hang up a win
over Illinois, and he finally succeeded
yesterday, in a manner which was
highly pleasing to himself and every
Michigan adherent. In 1932 at Cham-
paign, Wistert relieved McNeal in the
box, but Michigan lost'a close game.
Last year Wistert was beaten once and
roughly treated another time by the
Illini, and it appeared that they were
his nemesis. Coach Fisher selected
Patchin to start against Illinois, early
in the week, but Wistert asked Fisher
for another crack at the Indians, and
Fisher who knew that Wistert would
pitch his arm off to beat Illinois,
pulled what proved to be a smart
move, when he started Wistert. r
* * *
Illinois was conceded to be the
hardest hitting team in the Confer-
ence, but Wistert made them look
like the weakest hitting team yester-
day. It is doubtful if the Illini ever
faced pitching of the brand Wistert
showed them. His fast ball was very
fast, his curve broke sharply during
the later innings, and he had superb
control. "Whitey" only walked one
man, and he was able to throw just
about where he wanted to.
* * *
Lewis, third baseman, and Illinois'
best hitter, scored his team's only run
of the day in the second inning. He
connected for the only hard hit ball
off Wistert, driving a single to cen-
ter, with no outs. He held on while
Toncoff flied to Artz. Moyer grounded
to Oliver, who made a smart play by
throwing to first to get the batter, as
he didn't have a chance to force
Lewis at second. Lewis took third on
a passed ball, and scored when Paul-
son threw low to first base on Duff-
ner's grounder.
Two close plays at the plate cut
off as many more runs for Michigan.
In the second inning, Regeczi went
all the way to second on an over-
throw by Lewis. He took third on Rat-
terman's sacrifice. Chapman then
slammed a hard grounder a little to
the right of Lewis. Regeczi was a bi
slow in starting for the plate, and
Lewis' beautiful one-handed stop and
perfect throw just nipped John as he
dove headfirst for the plate. In the
fifth inning, Petoskey tried'to score
from second on Weber's poor throw
home to get Oliver. The Illinois
pitcher, Masek, covered home and tool
Toncoff's throw just in time to gel
A .470 hitter leading off; that's thE
case with Captain Avon Artz. Coac2
Fisher has him leading off becausE
Artz gets on base more times per
game than any of his teammates. Ir
his last 9 times at bat, Artz has lined

out 8 hits, to raise his batting average'
129 points in a single week.
Fred Ratterman waited for three
years to break into a Michigan line-
up as a regular, and when he got his
chance yesterday, he evinced that he
has what it takes to come through
in a pinch. In the fourth, with Wistert
on second, one down, and Michigan
trailing 1 to 0, Ratterman singled to
right, scoring Wistert with the tying
* , *
The Wolverines initiated Masek into
their little club which has for its
motto "they shall not finish," meaning
that the pitcher who starts against
them will not be in the box when the
last putout is recorded. Masek was re-
lieved by Carlson in the seventh. In
the 12 games Michigan has played to
-date, only four have been started
and finished by the same hurler.

Team, 4 To 2
EVANSTON, Ill., May 5.- (Special)
Michigan's Varsity tennis team won
its first Conference victory of the
season today by defeating North-
western University here, 4 to 2. The
win evened the series of two matches
played on the trip, the Wolverines
having dropped a contest to the strong
Western State Teachers Friday at
Kalamazoo by a 5 to 2 score.
Dan Kean, playing number one
throughout the western invasion, had
a rather sad time taking a beating in
both his singles matches and playing
on losing doubles combinations. But
whereas Kean struggled in vain for
the taste of victory, Seymour Siegel.
who had been off form until the re-
cent warm weather set in, was the
main contributor to the Michigan
scoring column, winning a singles
match against Kalamazoo and taking
a singles and doubles match against

The New York Yankees defeated
the Detroit Tigers 10 to 6 yesterday
and forced the Bengals into a tie for
fourth place with the Senators who
defeated Cleveland 9 to 1. Ruffing
allowed the Detroit team 11 hits but
kept them w~ell scattered. The Yan-
kees garnered 12 hits from the Tiger
pitchers and bunched them closely so
as to convert them into 10 runs.

hits and 13 runs at the expense of
St. Louis and by virtue of this victory
went into third place. Other results

Cavalcade Runs Away
From Field In Derby
VILLE, Ky., May 5. -- (A") -- Cav-
alcade, the mighty record-break-
ing colt bred in old England but
foaled in America, broke the
hearts of two renowned queens of
the Derby today and raced to a
sensational victory in the sixtieth
Kentucky Derby.
Heavily backed to win at the
short odds of 3 to 2, Cavalcade
justified the confidence in hi
speed and thrilled a tremendou
crowd of 55,000 spectators, the
biggest in six years, with a glit
tering stretch drive that easily
beat off his gallant eastern rival
Discovery, and left the two flee
fillies, Mata Hari and Bazaar
struggling in the rear.
