Tigers walloped the Yankees again
yesterday in a wild slugfest 10-8. The
battling Bengals outhit the New York

the Yanks could do was 13 hits with
Four pitchers toiled for the Tigers.

EVEN NOW, AS I INDITE this final
effort, the Captains and the Kings
of the Board in Control of Publica-
tions are deciding the next year's fate
of the various editorial easy-chairs
and typewriters. I have faith in their
choice; I ought to have faith in their
choice since last year they chose and
lent endorsement to the appointment
of such efficient and pleasant col-
leagues as Mr. Connellan, Mr. Shaw,
Mr. Schaaf, and Miss Hanan.
There are other people whom I must
mention: the juniors who worked for
me made the sports editorial task
both easy and pleasant. At the begin-
ning of the year there were six: Mr.
Carstens, Mr. Baird, Mr. Frankel, Mr.
Bird, Mr. Martin and Miss Western.
Scholastic ineligibility was the fate of
Messrs. Bird and Frankel. Mr. Martin'

Further, I desire to compliment
Miss Marjorie Western for efficient,
reliable, and intelligent work both
in her coverage of women's sports and
in her work on Varsity sports. Miss
Western has the honor of being the
first member of her sex ever to cover
a Varsity contest for the Daily-
the Illinois baseball game two weeks
ago today. Miss Western, too, in her
helpful secretarial work in the office,
has been one of those important un-

You will find the task of writing
a daily column an onerous burden but
a source of tremendous satisfaction at
times. There will be days on end
when inspiration and imagination are
at an extremely low ebb, and you will
be ashamed of your efforts as un-
worthy of your abilities. Maybe you
will try to inform more than I have.
My main object has been to amuse,
with an occasional attempt at in-
formation, an occasional. attempt to
satirize institutions worthy of satii-
zation, and attempts to defend per-
sons and institutions that I considered
worthy of defense.
A column is an intensely personal
affair. It cannot be otherwise. -It is
only natural that you, as an indivi-
dual, will be opinionated. That is a
characteristic of the human mind.
Your own opinion is boundtd creep
into your column, and as it does so you
will find many who agree with you,
and many who do not. The exact
number does not matter . . . with
amazing frequency majorities are

agree with you, you will find criti-

Used In Trial
To Stem Defeat'
Boilermakers Are Outhit
As Petoskey Drives Out
Two Circuit Blows
LAFAYETTE, Ind., May 18.-- (Spe-
cial) - Purdue closed its Western
Conference baseball season with a 10-
7 victory over Michigan today. The
defeat was the second straight on
successive days suffered by the Wol-
verines, Indiana having defeated
them yesterday, 10 to 9.
The game was the most raggedly
played contest of the league season, a
total of 12 errors being committed by
the two teanis. Although Michigan
outhit Purdue, 15 to 12, 7 Wolverine
errors and as many bases on balls
given up by Tillotson, the starting
pitcher, Patchin, and Wilson, ac-
counted for the Boilermaker's win. As
a result of the victory, Purdue passed
Michigan in the Conference stand-
ings, shoving the Wolverines below
the .500 mark.
Ted Petoskey, Michigan's most dan-
gerous hitter went on a rampage to-
day, driving out two home runs, two
singles, and getting a walk in five
trips to the plate. Petoskey hit a cir-
cuit drive against Indiana yesterday
to give him a total of three home runs
in two days. His performance was
marred; however, by two costly errors
in the outfield. These were "Pete's"
first outfield misplays of the season.
The Michigan infield, after playing
brilliant ball in the last three games
before the current road trip, has
blown higher than a kite, committing
13 errors in two days. In an attempt
to steady the inner garden after it
made six errors against Indiana,
Coach Ray Fisher inserted Waterbor
into the lineup at short, for the first
time since he fractured his thumb
in the Michigan State game, three

CONCERNING THE UNIVERSITY:
It has been a source of tremen-
dous satisfaction to find that faculty
opinion and teaching, together with
the political and social philosophies
of the country, have taken a marked
swing toward liberalism, toward an
emphasis upon less material values in
The age of rugged individualism
is over, and social consciousness and
an enlightened form of selfishness
will replace eventually the blind pred-
atory philosophy which led inevitably
to depression. International patriot-
ism rather than the violently unthink-
ing national variety will lead the
world to a new era of peace.
To the members of the faculty who
teach these new doctrines I extend
congratulations and thanks. Theirs is
the often thankless task of preaching
an enlightened gospel.
It is to be hoped that the University
goes on accumulating prestige by
keeping abreast of, or ahead of the
times. Certain it is that it will be
here, a source of enlightenment to
new generations when the last mem-
ber of the class of '34 shall be low-
ered into the grave. "Salve, Univer-

The freshman nine made it three

To Leave For
Kocsis, Sweet, Markham,
And Malloy Seek Third
A four-man Wolverine golf squad
will leave today for Chicago in quest
of its third straight Conference title
in the Big Ten meet to be held Mon-
day and Tuesday at Kildeer Country
Club, Chicago. Coach Trueblood has
named Chuck Kocsis, Woody Malloy,
Cal Markham, and Carroll Sweet to
make the trip. Milt Schloss, as alter-
nate, will be summoned if neces-
The team will be without the serv-
ices of Captain Eddie Dayton, con-
fined to the Health Service for the
past week. Dayton placed second to
Johnny Fischer of Michigan in the
meet last year as Michigan took its
second straight championship, and
has led the Wolverines to five straight
dual-meet wins during the current
Kocsis Number One Man
The two-day meet will be a 72-hole
medal championship, with the team
having low total taking the title. Each
team is limited to four men.
The Wolverine squad will be led
by Chuck Kocsis at number one, a
leading candidate to succeed Johnny
Fischer as individual champion.
Woody Malloy, the sophomore ace
who will play at number two, and
Carroll Sweet, will be playing in their
first Conference meet,
Cal Markham, who carded a 72-
hole total of 343 in last year's meet
over the same course, will be the only
Wolverine with Conference experi-
ence to make the trip, although Car-
roll Sweet was a member of the six-
man team that went to the National
meet last year.
Northwestern, Minnesota Strong
Michigan, winner of four Confer-
ence dual meets from Northwestern,
Illinois, Purdue and Ohio State, is
ranking favorite to retain the title,
but strong competition is expected
from the Purple team and from Min-
nesota, runners-up in 1933.
The Gophers will be without the
services of Earl Larson, who was de-
feated by Eddie Dayton in a plat
off for second place in the 1933 meet,
and will be led by Captain Bill Zieske.
The squad is expected to arrive
in Chicago today in time to practice
and will play tomorrow. Coaches T. C.
Trueblood and Ray Courtright will ac-
company the squad.
