Will Face Hurons On M ound This Afternoon

an occupation fraught with cer-
tain elements which do not tend to
fatten the purse or swell the head
either. Up to this year I am extremely
lucky in the matter of master-minding
the Kentucky Derby. People are not
prone to ask opinions of a young
sports editor when the editor is right
at hand. But this year, as the editor,
I find that I am definitely put on
the spot.
For a time I think I am going to get
away with it, but just two hours before
the race, a character around the office
desires my expert opinion on the out-
come. So I draw the veil of secrecy
over my features for a moment con-
cealing the fact that I am trying
vainly to think of the name of one of
the ponies entered and finally come
out with "Mata Hari," as the only
name I can think of. Incidentally, I
do not tell this person that I never
see a horse race in my life.
And now my reputation is blasted;
I can see that it is very' lucky that
I do not put my opinion in print, or
matters will be worse. But in strictest
confidence I will tell you that I hardly
know what a horse looks like.
AM AVOIDING the steeds ever
since at a very tender age I find
that they do not operate with the
surety of andautomobile and are likely
to do almost everything up to biting
you in the leg when you try to steer
them. Doubtless. I will some day be
put on the spot by some well-meaning
party who will think that he is doing
me a favor, by placing me in a posi-
tion where I have to ride one. I live
in dread of the horrible event.
Now when it comes to turtle racing
I can expert, because for a whole sum-
mer I have a half interest in a stable
of racing turtles which my cousin and
I maintain. I remember with tears in
these kindly old eyes a little musk
turtle named Nosey. He is a thorough-
bred from 'wayback What speed.
What a classy action! Give that turtle
a prod in the derriere, and he is as
fast as an oiled eel on a course made
of banana peels. As far as his pedi-
gree is concerned, he is by Landing
Net out of Mud. While I have him he
wins plenty of races, but one day he
decides that the racing racket is the
old malarkey and silently steals away.
So I give up the game in great sor-
In the absence of Coach Charlie
Hoyt, who was called to Des
Moines, Ia., by the death of his
mother, Ken Doherty is in charge
of the Varsity tracksters. The
squad drilled yesterday afternoon
in preparation for the Ohio State
meet this week-end.
Theta Chi Leading
Fraternity Scoring
With the three spring events - ten-
nis, baseball, and horseshoes remain-
ing, Theta Chi, last year's high point
winners, are leading the scoring again
this season with 934 points. In '33 they
made 1136 to win.
Alpha Kappa Lambda is in second
position with 787 and Phi Beta Delta
is third with 698. Theta Xi is within
striking distance, only 16 points be-
hind'. The others are at least a hun-
dred points behind. They line up
Alpha Omega, Phi Lambda Kappa,
Phi Kappa Psi, Pi Lambda Phi, Tau
Delta Phi, and Psi Upsilon. Phi Kappa
Psi, Pi Lambda Phi, and Psi Upsilon
have never been in the first ten before
in the history of the Intramural de-
Paul Gorman, sophomore middle-
distance runner, competed for South
Park high school in' Buffalo, N. Y.

but one semester on the track team.
Nevertheless he won first place in the
Buffalo Centenial mee, in the half
mile. Football was his specialty.

Ypsi Batsmen
Tillotson May Also Pitch;
Quinlan Will Hurl For
The Michigan baseball team will be
after its third straight win when it
meets the Michigan State Normal Col-
lege nine at 4 p.m. today on Ferry
Field. Last year the Ypsilanti ball
players lost two close games to the
Wolverines, and they have a good1
enough team this year to make it in-
teresting for the Maize and Blue.
Quinlan, the right-handed ace, of the
Hurons will start against Michigan,
with Johnson, a southpaw, in re-
Art Patchin will start in the box.
and will probably pitch the first five
innings with Harry Tillotson fin-
ishing up. Coach Ray Fisher desires
to give his hurlers a tuning up before
the "sixteen-run-Ohio State nine"
comes to Ann Arbor for games Friday
3nd Saturday.
Fisher Was Pleased
Coach Fisher was very well pleased
with Wistert's pitching, and his team's
timely hitting against Illinois, Satur-
day. "Whitey" allowed the hard-hit-
ting Illini just three hits, only one of
which was hit solidly and, but for
an error, he would have hurled a shut-
out. The Wolverines didn't hit Masek,
the Illinois hurler, very hard but they
connected in the pinches when hits
meant runs. Michigan only got eight
blows, but six of them figured in the
The infield has been a little un-
steady all year, and committed three
errors in the Illinois game. Coach
Fisher was forced through ineligibility
and injuries to use an infield com-
posed of men who are not playing
their natural positions.
They're All Mixed Up
In the game with Normal today not
one man in the infield will be playing
a position at which he's had even two
years' experience. Oliver at third,
played first and pitched in prep
school. Petoskey at short, has been
-the regular center fielder for the last
three seasons.. 'Paulson at se'cond,
caught, played first and third in high
school, and Wistert at first is the
leading pitcher.
Michigan will line up in the follow-
ing batting order: Artz, right field;
Oliver, third base; Petoskey, short-
stop; Paulson, second base; Wistert,
first base; Regeczi, left field; Ratter-
man, center field; Chapnan; catcher;
Patchin, pitcher.

Coach Ray Fisher has selected Art Patchin, junior moundsman, to
hurl for the Wolverines against Michigan Normal here this afternoon.
Patchin's most recent accomplishment was a 13 to 3 victory over Mich-
igan State last Tuesday. He will be gunning for his third victory of the

Freshmen Win
Over Badgers
In Track Meet
In its first outdoor telegraphic meet
of the season, Michigan's freshman
track team nosed out the University
of Wisconsin's freshman thinclads
69-62, Friday afternoon, capturing
firsts in nine of the fourteen events.
The Wolverines won all track events
except one, the 120-yard high hurdles,
but could win only one field event,
the high jump, which was taken by
Moore with a jump of six feet one-half
inch. Osgood, star freshman hurdler,
was beaten in the highs by Leicke of
Wisconsin who covered the distance
in 15.3 seconds. However. Osgood came
back to win the lows in 24.6.
Aikens, Michigan quarter miler, won
his event in 50.4 with another Wolver-
ine, Fisher, taking second in 51.8. Two
more Michigan firsts came when
Brelsford turned in a 4:29.7 mile and
Stiles ran the 220-yard dash in 21.6.
