Superiority In
Singles Gives
Teachers Win
Captain Sandusky S t a r s
For Wolverines; Kahn,
Siegel Lose
There is an old song about a poor
boy from Kalamazoo who was so un-
fortunate that he had to chop kind-
ling wood to get along. That old
song las sounded around more than
one banquet table in Michigan and
is consequently responsible for the
suggestion that boys from Kalamazoo
are pathetic and ineffective outside
the realm of kindling wood.'
But yesterday afternoon at the
FerryFieldcourts a whole bunch of
boysfrom Kalamazoo proved for the
second time this year to the Wol-
verine tennis team that there wa.'
only one boy from Kalamazoo whc
chopped kindling wood to get along
but it took them until eight o'clock
in the evening to do it and even then
by the barest margin, 5 to 4.
Mr. Leavin Is Good
The first one t prove it was Mr
Benjamin Leavin, who is supposed
to be Western State's best convincer
Mr. Leavin convinced Mr. Seymou
Siegel, 6-0, 6-8, 6-4, and he did sucl,
a beautiful job of it' that there wa
no doubt in the minds of the spec-
tators of his superiority. Mr. Leavir
was all over the court. Mr. Siege
lost more than one placement poini
in the corner of the court because
Mr. Leavin made impossible gets
Also Mr. Leavin pulled many sur-
prises. For instance he backed
Siegel against the base line, then
creeped up on the net, and. dumpecr
a measly pop over the barrier while
Siegel looked on some twenty fee
away. Mr, Leavin also had a dis-
turbing change of pace in his serve
'He would drift along with a lazy.
twisting sort of drive, then would
suddenly shoot one over a mile a
minute which would drop in some
strange corner of the service court.
Joe Appelt and Captain Clint San-
dusky, playing in number two and
number six, respectively, were the
only Michigan men to outdo the visi-
tors in the singles. Joe Appelt pull-
ed an upset by defeating Andy Pepa.
4-6, 7-5, 6-3. It was thetsecond argu-
mnent between the two, the first hav-
ing gone to Pepa at Kalamazoo. Cap
tam Clint Sandusky defeated Ed
Sullivan, 5-7, 6-0, 6-3, which win
with a victory in the doubles gave
him the honor of being high scorer
for his team.
Kahn Breaks String
Dan Dean, Howard Kahn, and Bill
Bwles all lost three-set matches.
Kean lost to Glazer, 5-7, 6-2, 0-6.
Kahn, dropping his first singles
match in dual competition this sea-
son, lost to Max Gurmen, 6-1, 5-7, 5-
7. And Bill Bowles lost to Malcolm
Ferguson, 4-6, 7-5, 2-6.
Michigan showed surprising
strength, in the doubles. Johnstone
sent Ralph Baldwin and Milt Eskow-
itz against Pepa and Glazer and the
Wolverine pair won. 8-6, 6-4. Like-
wise with the Durand-Sandusky com-
bination. Ferguson and Sullivan
went down, 4-6, 10-8, 4-6.
But that man Leavin, teaming with
Gurmen, provided the wirning mar-
gin in the deciding doubles match,
by downing, Appelt and Siegel, 6-4,

iWomen Begin
New Tradition
IWith Field Day

Hyper-Sophistication? Bunk!
r ALK ABOUT the hyper-sophistication of Michigan co-eds! You men
who grunt at the artificiality and affectation of your dates should
have seen a hundred or more of them as they romped upon the greensward
of Palmer Field in yesterday's first annual Women's Field Day. Rouge, dates,
shapely limbs and southern accents were forgotten as the girls played every;
imaginable sort of game with a willingness that far outstripped their skill.
That this thing hasn't been going on long was evident when some girls
tried to carry the hairpin bend over into sprinting, caught or tried to catch,
baseballs with the "bushel basket" method of open arms, and endangered
lives in Couzens Hall with badly aimed arrows.
The obstacle race was easily the best sideshow on the midway leading
up to the main attraction, with horseshoe pitching in second place.'
In the obstacle race each contestant runs 10 yards, dons a pair of rav:
ishing but voluminous black bloomers saved over from crinoline days, runs
another ten yards and crawls under a blanket, runs some more and drapes
diverse accessories on an innocent "post" who stands obligingly still. The
racer is only half done then. She must run around the "post" three times
chanting nursery rhymes, remove the accessories, straighten the blanket,
remove the bloomers and run back to the starting line.
We put our money on Mary Potter, Betsy Barbour tomboy, but he.
bloomers refused to stay up, and she finished a poor fourth.
And so to the horseshoe pits -I say pits, there really were none - only
wobbly stakes driven into the turf. Here again feminine ingenuity had made
the old barnyard golf game something'quite different, but the principle was
the same - to get a shoe as close as possible to the stake. Kay Rucker, clad
in the stunning blue of an early evening sky, seemed to be fighting it out
with the shirt-and-slacks garbed blond Thais Bolton for the honors here,,
with a dark-horse sneaking in a ringer in the last minute to take the crown.
On our way to the ball game we saw petite Elsie Pierce (blue slacks, blue
Basque shirt) win the 200-yard shuttle relay title for her team with a daz-
zling 25-yard spring from. her position as anchor-woman.
We hate to compare the baseball game with a three ring circus. At least
there was something happening all the time. For the three innings we were
there the Kappas, sorority contenders for the Class A title, gave the Inde-
oendent team a royal shellacking. The Independent pitcher was doing nobly
'3ut she should have had Regeczi, Petoskey, and Artz patrolling the garden,
nstead of the three ballhawks who were there. Both teams apparently
followed the Notre Dame football edict which says "A strong offense is the
)est defense." Attempts to outscore -the enemy were confined almost entirely
to getting as many runs as possible when you were at bat. What was the final
,core, Marjorie? (Note: See "Women's Sports").
Peggy Connellan, sophomore sister of senior Tommy, started on the
mound for the Kappas. Besides limiting the Independents to a nominal
number of runs, Peggy was a fiend at the plate. She is a bad-ball hitter
(what woman isn't?) but gets away with it.

Baseball Title

Everhardus Signed By
Detroit Pro Grid Team
Herman Everhardus, the "Fly-
ing Dutchman" of Michigan's
1933 championship*footballteam.
has signed to play with the newly-
organized team representing De-
troit in the National Professional
Football League.
Everhardus was the leading
scorer in the Western Conference
last season and was chosen by his
team-mates tie most valuable
man on the squad.
More than an offensive star,/
his fine defensive work and capa-
ble kicking when Johnny Regeczi
was out of the game 'stood out
over the season's play.
It is rumored that Detroit is
also seeking "Whitey" Wistert and
"Chuck" Bernard, both Michigan
All-Americans last year.


Big Ten Debacle Forgotten As
Hoytmen Look To 1935 Seas<

Fischer Beaten
By Scottish Star
I British Play
PRESTWICK, Scotland, May 23.-
(/P) - Jack McLean, Scottish Walker
cup star and the pride of Prestwick.
today defeated Johnny Fischer, sen-
sational Cincinnati youngster, by 21
and 1,'in toe third round of the Brit-
ish amateur golf championship.
Putting brilliantly, sinking the ball
from distances as far as 20 feet from
the cup, McLean was out in a scorch-
ing sub par 33 for this strenuous sea-
side course to be two up on Fischer at
the halfway mark.
Fischer, who was the medalist in the
last two American amateur cham-
pionships, toured the outward holes in
par 35 apd try as valiantly as he did
he was never able to overcome that
two hole deficit.
Five Team Members Out
As a result of his defeat Fischer
joined his other beaten Walker cup
brethren on the sidelines-- Captain
Francis Ouimet, H. Chandler Egan,
Max Marston and Gus Moyeland.
Jesse Guilford, former American
amateur king and looming more and
more as a serious threat in this cham-
pionship, gained the fourth round
with a one-sided triumph over Lieut.
Col. T. J. Mitchell of Prestwick. Guil-
ford won by 6 and 4 and will meet Mc-
Lean tomorrow.
.Johnny Goodman, U.S. open cham-
pion and W. Lawson Little of San
Francisco, caught up with the field
today, winning their second round
matches without any difficulty.
George Terry Dunlap, Jr., amateur
champion of the United States and re-
garded by old links disciples here as
a "man of destiny," after his first and
second round comeback victories,
made short shrift of George D. Hanay,
former French amateur titleholder.
The American king won, 6 and 4.

Dick Ellerby Submits
To Major Operation
Dick Ellerby, Varsity quater-
miler and brother of Tom Ellerby,
Wolverine track captain, was oper--
ated on for appendicitis Tuesday
morning in the University Hos-
pital. His condition was reported
as good last night.
The younger Ellerby was a mem-
ber of the mile relay team in-
doors but was taken ill soon after
the beginning of the outdoor sea-
son. He is expected to be one of the
leadingncondidates for Varsity.
440 honors next year.c
Eddie Dayton, Varsity golf cap-
tain, is still confined to Health
Service. His condition is unim-
proved, and it is still problematical
whether or not he will be able to
accompany the team to the Na-
tional Intercollegiates, June 25.
Poughkeepsie Revival
Draws Over 15 Crews
NEW YORK, May 23. - (P) -The
revival of the classic intercollegiate
regatta on the Hudson, opposite
Poughkeepsie, on June 16, after a
year's lapse, will find at least 15 and
possibly 18 eight-oared crews renew-
ing the traditional East-West rivalry.
The Universities of Washington
and California each will send two
boatloads, in addition to which all
five Eastern members of the Inter-
collegiate Rowing Association will
be represented in one or more of the
three races.
Entries have not yet been closed
and the draw for positions will not
be held until June 5,
The biggest fleet ever assembled
for the regatta was in 1930, when 23
crews participated in the three races.
That year and again in 1931, there
were nine crews in the varsity fea-
ture, including Wisconsin and Mas-
sachusetts Tech.

Inauguration of a tradition which
may become one of the most popular
among the women of the Michigan
campus took place yesterday after-
noon at Palmer Field in the form of a
Field Day program. Though not di-
rectly connected with the Lantern
Night ceremonies, it may become one
of the features of the day set aside
for honoring the women each year.
The Field Day was the athletic
part of the program. More than
130 women participated in it, com-
peting in the various track and field
competition events, and inhthe base-
ball game which closed the celebra-
Kappa 42, Independents 11
Kappa Kappa Gamma swamped
the Independent team to cop the dia-
mond title for 1934. Due to bad
fielding on the part of the Indepen-
dents and the fairly accurate batting
eye of most of the Kappas, the score
at the end of the game was 42 to 11.
Peggy Connellan, who has worked
on the niound for the sorority nine
in most of its victories this spring,
held the Independents to the rela-
tively low score. Her hitting also sent
in several runs. Three of the mem-
bers of the victorious nine made six
runs-Hannon, Frederick, and HAt-
cher. The best hitting in the oppos-'
ing camp was done by Robinson, who
circled the bases three times out of
four trips to bat.
Honors for smart playing and ex-
cellent performance go to Henrietta
Cherrington, catcher on the'Indepen-
dent team. The losers were handi-
capped by a shortage of players, lack-
ing two to make a complete team. ,

Besides the decision of the baseball
title, there was competition in arch-
ery, tennis, horseshoe pitching, golf
pitching, a. 200-yard relay, and an
obstacle race.
The shuttle relay, the first general
introduction of the Michigan co-eds
to actual track competition, proved
to be one of the most popular and
successful of the day's events. The
winning team,. composed of Pierce,
Oberdier, Beebe, and O'Ferrall, cov-
ered the distance in the excellent
time of :33.4. This time was made
without any practice together on the
part of the runners, and wholly with-
out any preparatory coaching.
Archery high scores for the after-
noon were won by Bragg, 149; Wy-
man, 120; and Moore, 117. Goode-
now and Saurborn tied for horseshoe
honors with 9 points each.
Jane Cissell and Marian Wuerth
tied with 2 each on golf pitching
shots. A third tie was the result of
the tennis bridge, which was split
between Dalby and Keppel with 13
games each, while Landrum was third
with 12. Kipf was the final winner
of the obstacle race.
Cage Numerals Announced
Basketball numerals were decided

Golfers Sweep
Honors In Big
Ten. To u rn e y
Scores Of Kocsis, Malloy
Below Fischer's Winning <
Total Of 1933
A clean sweep of the low individual
awards and the team title and newz
records for team and individual scor-
ing was the account of the Big Ten
golf meet given by the team members
as they returned to Ann Arbor yester-
The team score of 1228, forty
strokes better than that registered by
Minnesota, which finished in second
place, was 63 strokes better than the
1291 total scored by the Michigan
team last year over the same course in
winning the title for the second
straight time.
Chuck Kocsis, the Wolverine soph-
omore ace who burnt the Kildeer
course with a sizzling round of 66 in
the first 18 holes of the 72-hole tour-
nament broke another record when
he turned in a final card of 283, 18
strokes better than the card with
which Johnny Fischer, Michigan cap-
tain-elect who left school to join the
Walker Cup forces, won last year.
Woody Malloy, another Wolverine
sophomore, furnished Kocsis his only
competition for individual honors, fin-
ishing in second place with 294.
Although faced by bad breaks from
the start, when Captain Eddie Dayton
was unable to make the trip because
of illness, and Carroll Sweet, originally
named at number four suffered a
nervous breakdown and was replaced
by Milt Schloss, the Michigan, team
came through to even greater heights
than predicted following its six
straight dual meet wins.
Malloy Comes Through
Although Kocsis, state amateur
champion and a sensation in tourna-
ment golf for several years was ex-
pected to lead in the drive for low in-
dividual honors, the showing of Mal-
loy, was most gratifying to Coach
A former Ann Arbor city champion
for-two years and former state inter-
scholastic champion, Malloy headed
Pat Sawyer of Minnesota, Minnesota
Open titleholder and second low med-
alist to Johnny Fischer in the Na-
tional Amateur qualifying round last
year, by ten strokes.
The team totals in order: Michigan
1228; Minnesota 1268; Northwestern
1269; Illinois 1306; Purdue 1308; Iowa
1313; Chicago 1354; Ohio State 1355;
Wisconsin 1389.
The team will end the dual-meet
season Saturday, playing Michigan
r State at East Lansing in a return
match. A six-man team will compete
in the National Intercollegiates to be
held June 25 to 30 at the Cleveland
Country Club, Cleveland.

Now that th)e outdoor track season
has ended and dreams of a Big Ten
chanipionship have gone glimmering,
Coach Charles Hoyt resolutely turns
to the coming indoor season, resolved
to repeat last year's triumph. A sim-
ple and clear analysis of the men
remaining and the yearlings coming
up to attempt the grade will help al-
eviate the as yet unknown situation.
Attraction is drawn first to Willis
Ward, outstanding point-getter of
the past campaign. The question to
be answered in regard to Ward is
simply a matter of allowing him to
participate in the maximum number
of events which will allow him to be
of most benefit to the team without
impairing his abiilty. There has
been talk of concentrition for Willis
in the broad and high-jumps, but at
this stage of the game nothing defi-
nite can be ascertained.
Harvey Smith, who competes in the
mile and the half-mile, and who
placed second to Ward in the matter
of point annexation, is expected to do
big things in the Conference next
year. His major opponents will all
graduate this June. Neree Alix and
Rod Howell will carry Michigan stan-
dards in the- two-mile event. Both
men should improve in a year's time.
Hunot To Relieve Ward
Moreau Hunt is a capable hurdler
and is expected to relieve Ward of
one of his varied duties. Tony \Se-
rakos and Harvey Patton are ex-
pected to shine in the quarter-mile
together with' Dick Ellerby. Paul
Gorman, half-miler, will also be back
to help Smith in the half-mile.
Ed Stone and Bob Kositchek will
do duty in the javelin throw, as will
Skip Etchells in the discus, Dave
Hunn in the pole vault, and Clark
Schell in the broad jump. All these
men are the recipients of major
Minor awards went to Alexander
and Silverman, shot-putters, Droul-
ard, pole-vaulter, Gooding, miler,
Kauffman, half-miler, Malashevich,

lend, broad-jumgrs.
Repeating Ken Doherty's phrase
concerning the "best freshman track
team I ever coached," Coach Hoyt
looks for staunch bolstering to his
first-year men. Sam Stoller, star
