Homers By Regeezi Patchin Give Nine 9-5 Win Over P

Rumor, Just Rumor. .
THE FUNCTION of a newspaper is
to purvey the news. It sounds
simple, but there are complicating
circumstances. Ideas as to what con-
stitutes news differ. Michigan's Board
in Control of Athletics has one view
as to what is news- our opinion is
different. The Board in Control tells
us what it deems innocuous - and
that only when such news is hoary
with age. We were "playing ball with
the administration" and being regu-
larly scooped on stories that we could
have written a week earlier, by cor-
respondents who didn't "play ball with
the administration" but went behind
the Board and Mr. Yost to get the
stories from perfectly ethical but un-
official sources.
They were "rumor" stories, to be
sure, but only so because no one in
authority would make a statement.
INCE THIS IS a newspaper and not
an almanac, we are changing our
policy on the sport page to conform
with that of other newspapers around
the state.
Some time ago the Board held a
closed budget meeting. No story on
the meeting was given out. Perhaps
the Board did not think it news that:
(1.) A decision not to hire a coach
to replace Jack Blott was maqe -
that, instead, it was tentatively
planned to hire a part-time scout next
fall. (2.) Blott's salary was divided
among the coaches, with the Varsity
football coaching staff receiving the
lion's share. (3.) Salaries were evened
off to round figures after the two
"percentage" cuts in the last two
years made them incongruously in-
volved. For example, one official, we
understand, got a salary cut of 32
cents. (4.) The entire budget for the
1934-35 school year was reduced $100.
T IS SIGNIFICANT that coaches
have already been notified as to
their salaries for next year, although,
as one official said, "The budget is
still tentative."
Already ugly rumors have arisen to
the effect that members of the foot-
ball coaching staff who played on
Michigan teams were favored in the
distribution of Blott's salary. Dame
Rumor's figures give raises of from
$290 to $1,100 to Kipke, Cappon, Oos-
terbaan and Webber - all of whom
played on Yost-coached teams here.
On the other hand Fisher, Keen, Hoyt,
and Courtright, who are also asso-
ciated with football as trainers or
freshman mentors, received pay in-
creases of from $10 to $43. The accu-
sation of partisanship shown Mich-
igan graduates, we believe, is far-
fetched. The four men receiving the
bigger raises are bonafide members
of the "the greatest coaching staff in
the world." The others, although they
may have a great deal to do with the
team, are not regularly looked upon
as Varsity football coaches. Perhaps,
may we suggest, that is where the dif-
ference lies? The Board might have
foreseen some such rumor and fore-
stalled it with a simple statement to
the press. They did not choose to do
And in conclusion, let . -~aiterate:
We are not going to battle the Admin-
istration over news releases - it would
be harmful to both of4us. We only ask
that we be allowed to decide what is
Frame Unhurt In
Speedway Wreck
INDIANAPOLIS, May 28.- (P) -
Fred Frame, winner of the 500-mile
race at Indianapolis motor speedway
two years ago, became a doubtful
starter in the 1934 classic today when
his machine hit a retaining wall while
he was making his qualifying run.I

Frame escaped injury but his car
was so damaged it was uncertain
whether it could be put into shape
before the time trials.
In the car with Frame was Al
Thieson, of Dayton, winner of a dirt
track race at Winchester, Ind., yes-
terday. Thieson also escaped unhurt.
Frame was piloting the car in which
Billy Arnold, of Chicago, won the
500-mile event in 1930 and in which
he crashed through the wall of the
northwest turn at the local track both
in 1931 and 1932. By strange co-
incidence Frame's accident also oc-
curred on the same curve.

This telephoto picture from Prestwick, Scotland shows Little receiv-
ing the championship trophy after defeating James Wallace, Scotch
carpenter, 14 and 13. Little, who is the first American to win the cup on a
first attempt, is the third native American to win the title, the others
being Jess Sweetser and Bobby Jones. His 66 on the morning round
was the best score ever turned in at Presiwick, and his winning margin
was the largest in the history of the event.

Michigan Nine
Hits Hard To'
Defeat Normal,
Wolverines Score 4 Runs
In Last Two Innings To
Win ThirdStraight
The Wolverines stretched their win-
ning streak to three straight by whip-
ping the Michigan State Normal nine,
9 to 5, at Ypsilanti yesterday. Mich-
igan's 'hard-hitting attack which
combed Johnson, Normal's star south-
paw, for 12 hits was directly respon-
sible for the triumph. Regeczi and
Patchin connected for home runs
over the center field fence, with a
Michigan runner on base each time,
to provide the margin of victory.
Michigan broke Johnson's spell in
the fourth with three runs to take a
3-0 lead. Wistert led off with a line
single to center field. He held first
while Regeczi lifted a towering fly
to Parker in left. Waterbor laid down
a perfect bunt which he beat out for
a hit, sending Wistert to second.
Chapman followed with an infield hit
on which Razberry, Normal short-
stop made a bare-handed stop holding
Wistert on third. With the bases
loaded, Ed Wilson came through with
a single to right center, scoring Wis-
tert and Waterbor, and moving Chap-
man to second. Artz forced Chapman
at third, Wilson taking second. John-
son hit Oliver, loading the bases for
the second time. Petoskey singled
scoring Wilson.
Normal Ties Score
Normal touched Wilson for a double
and single in the fourth, which mixed
with a force play, scored the first
Normal run. The Ypsi boys picked up
single runs in the fifth and sixth,
while Johnson was holding Michigan
scoreless, to tie the score, 3 to 3. Wil-
lson pitched good ball, but errors by
Paulson and Oliver, placed the scores
on base.
With the score tied in the seventh,
John Regeczi slammed a prodigious
wallop over the center field fence,
scoring Wistert, who had walked,
ahead of him, to give the Wolverines
a two-run lead. The lead was short
lived as the Ypsi boys tied it up in
their half of the seventh, and again
it wasn't Wilson's fault, but an error
by Waterbor which helped the Nor-
mal nine.
Pitchin Hits Homer
Patchin relieved Wilson with oue
out in the seventh, and received credit
for the win. Michigan scored the win-
ning run when Petoskey doubled
against the fence in left center to
score Patchin from second. Patchin's
homer with a man on in the ninth
followed by singles by Artz and Oliver,

Stagg Believes
1935 Net Team
Will Take Title,
Chicago Coach S'ays That
Captain Siegel Will Be
Singles Champion
Lonie Stagg, coach of Chicago's
Big Ten tennis champions, had a
word to say about Coach Johnstone's
boys last Sunday when Michigan took
the Maroons, 4-2. It was a most en-
couraging word. Lonie Stagg, inci-
dentally, is the, son of the famous
Amos Alonzo Stagg who led Chicago
football teams to so many titles.
Mr/ Stagg, Junior, has an impres-
sive way of saying things. He is short
in stature, but he gives a sincere and
impressive ring to his statements.
He said that it looked, like Michigan
next season at the Big Ten tourney.
He said it looked as if Michigan woild
be wearing the gold balls instead of
Chicago when next spring rolls
Picks Siegel
Then, too, he shook hands with
Seymour Siegel. He told Mr. Siegel
that, with Max Davidson graduating,
he would be looking for Sam to take
the singles title next year. Sam just
blinked. But then Sam would have
blinked if Mr. Stagg had told him he
was going to be shot at sunrise.
And further Mr. Stagg intimated
that he knew something about the
strong squad of freshmen which
Johnstone will receive with pleasure
when the season begins in 1935. There
will be John Rodriguez, the Porto
Rican slasher, who has been cutting
down his mates in practice matches;
Jarvis Dean, another good boy, from
Chicago; Bob Edmunds, Junior City
clampion of Detroit; Miller Sher-
wood of Grand Haven; and Bob An-
derson, of Crand Rapids, All-Campus
indoor champ by virtue of a win over
Howard Kahn in the finals. This vic-
tory is most significant in view of.
the fact that Kahn has been a prolific
point getter for the Wolverines at No.
4 this season, having dropped but one
singles match.
This group of yearlings will prob-
ably offset the loss of Joe Appelt and

The Cleveland Indians retained the
lead in the American League despite
the fact that the second place Yan-
kees came out of their slump to take
St. Louis 13-9. The Philadelphia
Athletics forced the Tribes to go 10
innings before the league leaders
gained a 6-5 victory victory, sweeping
the series.
Robert Moses Grove, the once much
feared lefty, was pounded from the
mound in six innings by Detroit in
the last of the three game series with
Boston. He gave 12 safeties including
two home runs by Hank Greenberg.
The final score was 12-6 for the;
The world's champion Giants de-
feated the Pittsburgh Pirates twice
and forced them down into second
place. The first game was broken up
in the eleventh by a homer from
Travis Jackson's bat for a 3-2 verdict
and Carl Hubbell won a 1-0 game in
the second. Other results:

Boston 5, Chicago 3.

Varsity M ' Are To
Be Given Eight Golfers

ners of Varsity letters by Coach

die Dayton, Chuck Kocsis, Woody
Malloy, Cal M a r k h a m, Milt
Schloss, Carroll Sweet, Chuck
Menefee, and Larry David.

letter winners to be held later.
Zit' Tessmer


Pitches Sigma '
NuTo 3rd Win
Estil "Zit" Tessmer, who has pitched t
Sigma Nu to the fraternity softball c
championship for two years, repeated r
yesterday as Sigma Nu defeated Alpha
Tau Omega, in the finals of the c
current series, 4 to 0. Tessmer allowed
one hit.
Until the sixth inning when two
successive Sigma Nu errors allowed
men to reach second and third, Tess-
mer kept the bases clear, but with one
man out the former grid star bore
down and 'fanned the next two men
to face him.
In the seventh Tessmer weakened
and walked a man and allowed a
scratch hit over the box that passed
for a single but again settled down
to fan the next batter and end the
Alpha Tau Omega had the edge in
the field with aggressive play which
cut doubles down to singles and which'
robbed Sigma, Nu of apparently sure
hits, but failure to come through at
bat cancelled the play in the field.
Two ATO pitchers, while holding
the Sigma Nu batsmen to five hits,
walked six men, five in one big inning.
The Sigma Nu team, undefeated
during the season's play, committed
two errors in the field while the ATO
team committed one.
