Professional hopes.. ..
FOUR members of Michigan's 1933
National Championship football
team have been offered professional
contracts for this fall. Only one,
Herm Everhardus, has signed as yet,
but at least one or two of the others
are virtually certain to be in there
fighting for positions with the big
boys when the- pro season starts.
Other recipients of contract offers
to date are Whitey Wistert, All-
American tackle; Chuck Bernard
All-American center; and Ted Petos-
key, end.
Will they make good when they
start blocking and tackling for thr
cold cash involved instead of for the
glory of the Maize and Blue?
Judging individuals we give two of
the four almost perfect chances of
success. Wistert and Bernard, wE
believe, could be members of any prc
team in the country next fall. Both
have the three paramount necessi-
ties in large quantities: Size, ability
to "take it," and brains.
YVISTERT, six-feet-four of brawn,
need not fear being dwarfed b3
any pro line, while we are sure that
Bernard, not so tall, but built lik
the proverbial brick building, coupd
hold his own anywhere.
Besides, both know how much they
can take and apportion their strength
carefully - the sign of a smart ball
player. Both are. pro players in that
they diagnose plays beforehand and
set 'themselves accordingly. This is
the ability that we fear Petoskey
lacks. Petoskey was undoubtedly one
of the greatest ends ever to play for
Michigan but the slashing, headlong
fashion in which he nlaved his pO-.

something new in the way of base-1
ball when it engaged the Toledo Un-1
iversity team in a contest under the 1
artificial light of the American As- 3
sociation ball park in Toledo Wednes-
day evening. The Wolverines staged
a thrilling ninth inning rally, scoring
five runs, to take a 5-3 decision to
the discomfiture of 2,500 ardent To-
ledo fans. Going into the ninth,
Michigan's total of hits was a singleI
to right field in the seventh by John
Regeezi. Lippincott, Toledo hurler,
seemed to have the game sewed up,
having achieved 11 strike-outs in
eight innings, and showing no signs
of weakening.
Petoskey was the first Michigan
hitter in the ninth. In his last two
appearances' at the plate, "Pete"
looked bad swinging at outside balls.
He led off the ninth with a hopping
single to left field. Paulson took two
strikes and hit a sharp grounder to
the shortstop's right, which he fum-
bled, but Paulson was credited with
a hit, as the ball was hit hard, mov-
ing Petoskey to second. Lippincott
had Wistert in a hole with two strikes
and a ball, but "Whitey" worked him
for a walk, filling the bases. Regeezi
came to the plate full of determina-
tion, but he struck out. Waterbor,
who had fanned twice, singled over
second base, scoring Petoskey and
Paulson, and sending Wistert to sec-
ond. The score was now 3 to 2.
Chapman then forced Waterbor at
second, Wistert taking third on the
play. Two outs in the ninth and
Wilson, the pitcher, the next batter,
with the tying run on third and the
winning run on first.
Coach Fisher sent Joe Lerner, a
left handed hitter, up to hit for Wil-
son. Joe had gone hitless in his last
five games. He took two strikes and
two balls. He leaned on the next;
pitch, a fast ball, driving it on a
line to right field scoring Wistert, and
sending Chapman to third. Captain{
Artz came through with a single to
right, scoring Chapman, and send-
ing Lerner to third, from where he
scored when Oliver beat out a hit
to the third baseman. Petoskey, bat-
ting for the second time in the in-
ning, ended the rally, fouling out to
the first baseman.
The arc lights didn't hamper the
Wolverines perceptibly in their field-
ing; in fact they fielded better Wed-
nesday night than they did in their
last four games during the day. How-
ever, the 52 1,500-watt globes which
illuminated the playing field, . had
some effect op the boys' hitting, ac-
The St. Louis Browns went into
third place in the American League
despite the fact that Detroit also
won its game with Philadelphia. The
Browns lead the Tigers by only one
percentage point.
St. Louis won its game from Wash-
ington 6-5. The Browns' pitchers

only seven, but Cleveland's blows
were bunched closer. The New York

ledo pitcher. The only complaint the
boys made was that it was hard to
follow curve balls at the plate. The
glare of the bright lights which pro-
vided ample light, was somewhat of
a strain on the outfielders' eyes.
The only one who had trouble in;
viewing the proceedings was the um-
pire behind the plate. You can't
blame the defective vision of thist
specimen on the arc lights, as um-
pires have difficulty in calling themt
correctly during the day..
The Toledo infield executed base-
ball's greatest rarity, a triple playi
in the first inning. With Artz on
second and Oliver on first, Petoskeyi
smashed a screaming liner which ap-
peared headed for left-center. The
Toledo shortstop, Dowd, who was out
of his natural position, trying to hold
Artz close to second, speared the
drive with his gloved hand, steppedt
on second doubling Artz, and threwE
to first to triple Oliver. Accordingj
to Coach Fisher, it was the first triple
play pulled on a Michigan team, in,
the 13 years he's been coaching here.j
Starting his first game for Michi-
gan, Ed Wilson gave a creditable per-
formance. He confined the Toledo
nine to seven hits in the eight in-
nings he hurled, striking out five andj
yielding two earned runs. Patchin,
who succeeded Wilson when he was
lifted for a pinch hitter, pitched the
last inning, striking out two men.
Three records of several years'
standing fell in the annual track meet
held by the Physical Education Major
School Tuesday morning. Class hon-;
ors went to the Juniors, who won the
meet easily with 41 points.
The Seniors came in second with 32,
the freshmen stood third in the final
talley with 26, and the sophomores
were at the bottom of the heap with
15 points.
Elizabeth Oberdier, track and swim-
ming star from Betsy Barbour, broke
the dash record. Racing the 50-yard
stretch, she clipped the tape for the
new time of :6.8.
The other two records to fall were
in field events, the discus and javelin.
Gertrude Morris hurled the discus to
a new mark of 83 feet, 10 inches. Jean
Gourlay tossed the javelin to the third
record of the day, 96 feet, 4 inches.
Aside from the individual record
breakers, the stellar performances of
the program were turned in by Ger-
trude Morris and Elizabeth Cooper.
Morris was high point scorer of the
meet with 13 points to her credit, and
Cooper was a close second with 11.
Winners in the other events were
as follows: high jump, Cooper; bas-
ketball throw, Creighton; broad jump,
Cooper; discus, Morris; hurl ball, Mor-
ris; hop, step, and jump, Mayer; jave-
lin, Gourlay; 50-yard dash, Oberdier.

Seek To Snap Spartans'
String Of Wins; Slate
Won First Meet, 5-4
Coach John Johnstone will take'
a squad of six men to East Lan-
sing today for' a return tennis meet
with Michigan State. Six singles and
three doubles matches will be played.
It will be the Wolverines second at-
tempt this year to stop the Spartans'
string of victories, Michigan having
dropped the first contest, 5 to 4.
Seymour Siegel, Joe Appelt, Dan
Kean, Howard Kahn, Bill Bowles,
and Captain Clint Sandusky will play
in that order against the State ranks.
Siegel Vs. Weitz
The most important singles match
will be that between Siegel and Stan
Weitz, Michigan intercollegiate singles
champion last year and undefeated
so far this season. Weitz narrowly
escaped a beating at the hands of Ben
Leavin, of Western State, in a recent
match between the Teachers and the
Spartans, when with match point be-
fore him, Leavin crumbled in the sec-
ond set and eventually went down
under Weitz's courageous comeback.
It will be the first meeting between
Weitz and Siegel this season, but they
faced each other last year and the
Wolverine star was defeated in two
sets. Siegel's record against Leavin
for the last two years has been, won
one, lost one. He hopes to even the
count against Weitz today.
Joe Appelt, who lost to Weitz when
State was here early this spring, will
try his luck against Rex Norris, an-
other Spartan star, who with Weitz,
holds the intercollegiate doubles title
in Michigan.,
Weak In Doubles
The success of the Michigan force
depends upon its ability in the doubles.
Kean, Kahn, Bowles, and Captain
Sandusky are likely to win the lower
ranking singles matches, inasmuch as
State is not as well-balanced a squad
as Michigan. But in the doubles the
Wolverines are usually weak. They
only took one doubles tilt from the
Spartans in the first match. But there
is one hope. Johnstone is bringing
the doubles combination of Siegel and
Bowles together again. This team
worked very well against Western
State and Northwestern on a recent
road trip, and, it is hoped, this duo
will provide the winning margin.
On Saturday Michigan will finish
up its Big Ten schedule and make a
bid for the Western Conference dual
championship when the Chicago Ma-
roons come here in what should be a
duplication of the Big Ten meet at the
Windy City.

Whitey Wisteri And
Wilshere To Meet
In Pitcher's Battle
When the Wolverine nine meets I
the Hoosiers from Indiana, tomor-
row on Ferry Field, two "Whiteys,"
the two best pitchers in the Western j
Conference will settle the dispute as
to who is the best hurler in the
league, when they face each other
on the mound. One is "Whitey"
Wilshere, Indiana's brilliant left
hander; the other is "Whitey" Wis-
tert, Michigan's stellar right hander.
Wilshere is a junior at Indiana,
and in two years of competition, he's
lost only one ball game. He dropped
a 6-4 decision to Michigan last year
at Bloomington. Wistert hurled
against him in that contest, starting
a little feud between the two boys.
Wilshere has won all of his- team's
Conference games this year, enabling
Indiana to stay on the heels of the
league leading Illini in the race for
the Conference title until last Tues-
day. It wasn't his fault that Illinois
whipped Northwestern thento clinch
the Big Ten championship with nine
victories and one defeat. Indiana is
in second place with five wins and
one loss, with three games to play.
At Bloomington last Thursday, In-
diana, with Wilshere pitching, beat
the Wolverines, 10 to 9. Although
he fanned 12, Michigan hit him hard
for 11 safe blows. Wistert didn't
pitch that game, so he's still one up
on Wilshere:
Wilshere has a lot of speed which
he makes very effective by mixing it!
up with slow stuff and a tantalizing
curve. Wistert is mainly a fast ball
pitcher, relying on his blinding speed
to blow the ball by the batters. He
also has a sharp curve ball, and good
control which was very much in evi-
dence when he pitched a three-hit,
and a one-hit game against Illinois
and Ohio State respectively.
