Captain- Elect
WaslRunner-Up
In Big_10 Meet
Won All Campus Singles
Titles, Placed Second In
Doubles Last Year,
Directly after the tennis team ad-
ministered the first defeat of the sea-
son to the Chicago netmen, the letter
winning members of the Michigan
team met in the locker room for the,
purpose of choosing - Captain San-1
dusky's successor. Sam Siegel was thej
unanimous choice. Siegel climaxed a
year of fine tennis by winning his
way to the finals of the Big Ten tour-
nament, where he was beaten by Da-
vidson of Chicago.
Siegel came to Michigan highly
praised, and ranked among the top-
notch players of the state. Before he
earned his berth on the Varsity last
year, he won the All-Campus singles
title and was runner-up in the doubles
contest. During the last season he
played first singles, but his record in
com'petition was poor. This year he
started playing number one, showed
poor form, and was shifted by Coach
Johnstone to the number two position
behind Dan Kean. His record since
then has been enviable.
At times during the season he
played moodily, hardly putting up a
fight, but in most of his matches,
particularly against Big Ten competi-
tion, he has played smart, hard ten-
nis. Coach Johnstone declared that
he would have won the Big Ten title
if he had sufficient rest. Siegel weighs
only 128 pounds, which is a handicap
for a hard-playing, nervous fellow.

with a freak hit that bounded over
Waterbor's head. Cox singled and
both runners advanced when Petos-
key fumbled the ball momentarily in
center field. "Elmer" Huffman, on
an attempted squeeze play, was in-
terfered with at the plate by Chap-
man. This automatically scored Cox.
and sent Huffman to first. Wistert
was in a hole, with the score tied and
two men on base. However, he made
Wahl pop a foul fly to Lerner, walked
Wilshere and fanned Himmelstein to
extricate himself.
Michigan put the game in the bag
in its half of the eighth when Wis-
tert, after Paulson had grounded oft,
reached first on Himelstein's error
and went to third on Regeczi's double
down third base line. Waterbor's sin-
gle scored Wistert and Regeczi with
what proved to be the winning runs.

JACK BLOTT goes east next fall
to ocoach football at a school
where the game has been given back
to the boys and where the Varsity has
lost 12 games and tied six out of 32
playe.d in the last four years. Al-
though Wesleyan does not stress
football, Blott said yesterday that
he hopes to improve the team's rec-
ord next year. He hates to leave
Michigan but recognizes the eastern
job as a good opportunity.
Developer of three All-American
centers and outstanding football
scout, Blott goes to a school that
hasn't had an All-American and into
a league which prohibits scouting.
The "Little Three," of which Wes-
leyan is a member along with Wil-
liams and . Amherst Colleges, has
agreements prohibiting scouting as
well as barring spring practice. Blott
believes that the no-scouting ban will
help him in his early years at Wes-
leyan since it will keep the other
two schools from watching the Mich-
igan system in use before they come
up against it. Little of the Michigan
system, except the now-famous "punt,
pass, and prayer" is known in the
East.
CHANCES for arranging a game
between Wesleyan and Michigan
are slim, since the Easterners limit
their competition to schools of equal
size. The two teams did meet in
1882, however, with Wesleyan win-
ning.
Blot't will also coach the baseball
team and handle squash and hand-
ball. Assisting him in both football
and baseball will be Norm Daniels,
former Michigan three-sport man.
Daniels will coach the ends and backs
while Blott wil devote most of his
time to the line.
An All-American center himself
here in 1923, Blott played baseball
with the Cincinnati Reds in 1924
and returned to Michigan as a coach
in time to develop Bob Brown, cap-

addition he made Bovard an All-
Conference center in an off-year.
Whatever the Board n' Control
does about replacing Blott, he is sure
to be missed next year. Highly-,
trained scouts don't grow on bushes
in the Middle West and not every line
coach can produce three All-Ameri-
cans in eight seasons.
There is an old saying among the
coaches at -Ferry Field that Michi-
gan men always come back. After
graduation they take coaching posi-
tions at other schools, then return
to. Michigan. Kipke did it; Blott,
himself, did it once; will he do it
again?
