Tolverine Golfers Defeat Purdue In Final Dual Meet,



Liinksmen Play
Without Sweet,
Koesis, Dayton
Is Fifth Decisive Victory;
Opposition Scores Only
14 Points
Without the services of Captain
Eddie Dayton, ill in the Health Serv-
ice, and Chuck Kocsis and Carroll
Sweet who were playing in the Na-
tional Open qualifying trials at De-
troit, the Wolverine golf team yester-
day closed its Big Ten dual meet sea-
son by defeating Purdue, 15 to 6, on
the University course.
The Boilermaker team total of 6
points was the highest which has been
registered in a dual meet against the
Wolverines, and was almost as great
as the 8% point total which had been
registered against Michigan in the
four previous dual meets. The Wol-
verines have scored 1021/ points in
the five meets.
Michigan failed to win but two
matches, Art Lockwood defeating
George David, who was playing in
his first meet following a shoulder
injury which has kept him idle, 3 to 0,
for the first defeat which a Wolverine
player has received during the sea-
Woody Malloy, the Michigan soph-
omore playing number one in the ab-
scence of Dayton and Kocsis, dropped
1% points to George Craig in their
singles match when the Wolverine
gave away the last two holes with a
missed putt on the 17th and a trapped
second shot on the 18th.
Malloy, however, took low medal
honors of the day when he carded
an even par round of 72 in the morn-
ing foursomes round. He teamed with
George David to defeat Craig and
Lockwood, 3 to 0.
Larry David took second low medal
honors when he shot a 75 in defeat-
ing Ken Dobelbower, 21/2 to '/2 in their
afternoon singles match.
The Summaries
FOursonies: Malloy and G. David
(M) defeated Craig and Lockwood
(P), 3 to 0. Markham and Schloss

bower (P), 2 to 1.
Twosomes: Malloy (M) halved with

(P) defeated G. David (M), 3 to 0.
L. David (M) defeated Dobelbower

Sorrell Shuts
O-ut Senators
With Two Hits
Victor Sorrell, the Tiger's hard-
luck pitcher,' held the Washington
Senators to two hits in 6 1-3 innings
yesterday, while his mates were
pounding Alvin Crowder and Ray
Prim for five runs and a shut-out
victory, before rain halted the game.



Title Contenders All....
Local IWaltonians... .
Wrong Again. . ..

* * *
N THE CURRENT ISSUL of a popular magazine, a prominent sports writer
brings up the question of what has happened to the sparring partners
of the days when the boxing industry was an industry and not a combina-
tion freak-show and chorus man's hangout.
Being very candid about it, I should say that all the old sparring-partners
and youngsters fit only for that branch of the game arc'in there after the
world's championship.
THE FOLLOWERS OF IZAAK WALTON are an optimistic breed. Put a
natural-born fisherman out in the middle of the desert with a bathtub
full of water and you will be likely to find him fishing in it with a piece of
thread and a bent pin if you should happen that way again within a couple
of hours. It's sheer force of habit.
Those of us who cover the local waterfront have noted, with the advent
of the warmer nights, that there are yellow flares peeping through the noc-
turnal mist hovering over the turbid waters of the majestic Huron.
Sensing a mystery, I was able to sneak up on one of these weird will-o'-
the-wisps a few nights ago and found one of the Waltonian disciples with a
kerosene flare to attract the quarry and a Neptunian trident wherewith to
spear it. I might have suspected something of the sort.
LED WITH THE traditional query: "Ketchin' anything?"
"Watcha fishin' fer?"
At this point, the fisherman let go a terrific right jab and triumphantly
brought up an old shoe. "Well," said he, a trifle abashed, "if that'd been
a fish..."
And I perceived that he and the millionaire who hopefully whips his
private trout stream are brothers under the skin.

AFTER LONG YEARS OF RESEARCH I have found the type of individual
who has the least chance of becoming conceited. It is the master-mind
who makes selections in the races at the various tracks of the country for the
press, to be read and accepted as gospel by those credulous citizens whc
wager on the steeds.
Checking up on predictions and actual results, I discovered that the
average expert is wrong about two-thirds of the time. It must be a desperate
business to have your predictions proven erroneous while the ink is still a
few hours old on the paper, and worse yet to think that lots and lots of parties
who laid their money on your being correct lost it because your judgment
was at fault.
Or maybe the master-minds just don't think about that.

Stoller Outstanding
1robably at the head of the troupe
of hopefuls must be placed the much
mentioned Sam Stoller. Stoller, a
husky sprinter from Cincinnati, is the
boy who last June at the National
Interscholastic Meet pushed Jesse
Owens, now a freshman at Ohio State,
to a 9.4 mark in the 100-yard dash.
This performance by Owens equalled
the world record in the century. It
has been rumnored around Ferry Field

of his duties in the short sprints next
year and thus enable the big colored
star to concentrate on his other

Injured Shortstop May
Resume Place In Lineup
"Buck" Waterbor, three season
veteran of the Michigan nine, who
sustained a fractured bone in the
thumb of his throwing arm sev-
eral weeks ago, and was pro-
nounced as being through for the
season, may be back at his short-
stop post, when the Wolverines
meet Indiana, Purdue, and Illi-
nois away from home during the
latter part of the week.
Waterbor participated in prac-
tice yesterday, and today's work-
out will definitely decide his stat-
us. Should his injured thumb not
seriously retard his play, he will
resume his place in the lineup, and
Petoskey, who has been playing
short sincewWaterbor's absence,
will return to center field.
Drivers Gather At
Indianapolis Track
For Qu alifyi nLaps
Qualifying and elimination tests
will begin Saturday at the Indianapo-
lis Motor Speedway to cut down the
field of 53 entrants to the select 33
who will compete in the annual 500-
mile grind on Memorial Day. May 30.
Among the drivers entered in the
speed classic are four former win-
ners. These are led by Louis Meyer,
last year's winner and with Tommy
Ml ton one of the two two-time win-
ners. He holds the record for the
fastest time through his scorching
ride in the winning Tydol Special in
1933. The other winners entered are
Fred Frame, Louis Schneider, and
Peter DePaolo.
This year eacn car will be allowed
to use only 45 gallons of fuel, carry-
ing 15 gallons in their tanks. This
will make it necessary for the ma-
chines to average at least 11 miles to
the gallon to be among the finishers
and will force at least three stops. To
be among the starting 33, it will be
necessary to average at least 111 miles
an hour for this year's crop of racing
mounts looks exceptionally fast.
Two Diesels Entered
Two oil-burning Diesels have been
entered by C. E. Cummins. The last
appearance of a Diesel was in 1931
when it went the gruelling 500 miles
without a stop. This year, however,

Brings Tean Here; Big
1Teu Meet This Week
Michigan's tennis team will top off
a busy time on the courts this week
when it takes on a team of Cleve-
land netters under the managership
of Ben Thorward, former Michigan
tennis captain, at 3 p.m. next Sunday
on the Ferry Field courts. The exhibi-
tion will follow on the heels of the
Big Ten meet at Chicago, Thursday,
Friday, and Saturday.
Thorward is bringing a group of
former collegiate, metropolitan and
state champions, of whom the most
outstanding is Leroy Weir, who was
seeded next to Lott in the Chicago
ratings and who has been Illinois and
Ohio state champion at various times.
Others are Kirk Reid, former Cor-
nell captain, runner-up in the Inter-
collegiates, and besides that five times
Ohio champion and seven times,
Cleveland champion; Frank Lee,
Stanford graduate and brother of the
present Intercollegiate doubles cham-
pion, Stan Lee; George Hoyt, former
member of the University of Washing-
ton team; and Ted Thorward, sopho-
more on campus and son of Ben Thor-
ward, who will team with his father
in a doubles match.

Richard Kempster Degener, holder
of practically every diving title under
the .sun, officially graduates from col-
legiate circles this June - but hip
career as a diver is most assuredly not
ended. Richard has plans --. big;
plans -- not the least of which is to
cr01 the Olympic Chaump ionship for
the United States in 1936.
At present, following a most suc-
cessful season in which lie retained
his titles in Big Ten, National Col-
legiate, and N.A.A.U. meets, he's just
resting. By that we mean he's temn-
porarily given up diving for another
of his favorite sports - golf, and
he's concentrating on avoiding scho-
lastic difliculties. But when summer
comes around he plans to get back in
the old routine.
Local followers of golf, who go in
for it in a very big way, have probably
run into Dick in University or mu-
nicipal sand traps, for he's on one of
the courses every day that weather
permits. He, by the way, is no duf-
fer on the greens and fairways, con-
sistantly shooting in the low eighties.
First Stop - Chicago
Following graduation, Dick will go
home for short rest and then - well,
the Men's Outdoor Master's Tourna-
ment at Chicago is first on the pro-
gram. This will be held July 5, 6,
and 7.
The next week he will give an ex-
hibition at the Women's National
Championship in Detroit. Then, to
avoid any accusation of partiality,

he's going to give the castern females
a break.
At Jones Beach. Long Island, a
picked group of American women will
meet a picked group of Eropean
women in an International dtual meet.
This takes place in the middle of
July and Dick has-priomiscd to be on
hand for exhibition purposcs.
lIe intends 1o remain in and I'round
New York for some time, diving at
the various country clubs-- then back
to Detroit for more exhibitions.
Then The Insurance Business
But he can't dive through life ior-
ever, so for next year he has more
serious plans. HIe's going into the
insurance business --- a favorite pro-
fession for athletes.
At the same time, he'll be training
for the Olympics at the Detroit Ath-
letic Club, an old hangout of his.
It was here that he first won fame as
a diver under the tutelage of Clar-
ence Pinkston, a former Olympic
champion, and it is here that he'll
continue his training - under the
same teacher.
After the Olympics, what? Dick
doesn't know for sure. Maybe the
insurance business. Maybe profes-
sional ranks. He'll worry about that
then. Right now he has enough on
his mind.,
