Markham To Lead
In Intereollegiate
At Chicago



Clarence Markham, a junior from
Ann Arbor,.was elected captain of the
1935 golf squad at a meeting of letter-
men held yesterday. Those voting in-
cluded Captain Eddie Dayton, by
proxy, since he has not yet been re-
leased from the Health Service, Mark-
ham, Woody Malloy, Milton Schloss,
Carroll Sweet, Charles Menefee, Law-
rence David, and Chuck Kocsis.
Markham, who has earned his let-
ter for two years, is a product of Ann
Arbor High school where he was on
the state interscholastic champion-
ship team, and is at present city
champion of Ann Arbor. He was run-
ner-up to Chuck Kocsis in the State
amateur tourney last year held at
Jackson Country Club.
Considered a late-summer golfer,
Markham has failed to show the form
which carried him to the top in tour-
nament play last year, but is consid-
ered an outstanding threat in the Na-
tional Intercollegiate meet to be held
June 25 to June 30 at Cleveland, which
Michigan will enter.
With five of the eight lettermen for
1934 returning, in addition to Johnny
Fischer, the captain-elect who relin-
quished his eligibility in order to play
on the Walker Cup team this year,
Markham will lead one of the strong-
est teams ever to represent Michigan
oni the links.{
Outstanding Potential Squad
A potential squad list for 1935 would
include Fischer, former National In-
tercollegiate and Big Ten titleholder
and record low qualifier in the Na-
tional Amateur, Chuck Kocsis, Big
Ten and. Michigan State Amateur
champion and probably the outstand-
ing amateur golfer in the state, Mark-
ham, runner-up in the State amateur
tourney and Ann Arbor city champion,
Woody Malloy, former state high
school and Ann Arbor city champion,
Big Ten runner-up and one of the
state's younger golfers, and several
other freshmen and reserve players.
Coach Thomas C. Trueblood has an-
nounced that a six-man team will rep-
resent Michigan in the National In-
tercollegiate meet, and that selection
of the squad will be delayed until
shortly before the tourney, June 25.
That the best possible team to repre-
sent Michigan will be sent is indi-
cated by Coach Trueblood's statement
that "the squad will not be limited to
lettermen if any eligible undergrad-
uate can show superior ability."
Michigan, Big Ten champions, will
be outstanding favorites to take the
title which was won last year for the
third straight time by Yale.
Squad Has Individual Contenders
The Wolverine squad will also in-
clude several outstanding candidates
for the individual crown held by Wal-
ter Emery, of Oklahoma. Heading
these will be Chuck Kocsis, who will
leave this week for the National Open
meet to be held June 7, 8, and 9 at
the Merion Cricket Club, Philadelphia.
Kocsis was second low qualifier for
the Open in.the Detroit district, and
will be conceded an excellent show-
ing on the same course where he
startled the golfing world in 1930 with
an upset victory over Francis Ouimet
in the National Amateur meet.
Malloy, who placed second to Kocsis
in the Big Ten tourney as the Wol-
verine sophomore ace set a new e-
ord, has expressed himself as shoot-
ing "the best golf ever" and will also
be considered as a championship con-
tender. He registered a 70, two below
par, on the University course Wednes-
day. Markham, too, will be looked
upon as a contender if his game begins
to click as it has done in past sum-
Whether Captain Eddie Dayton,
who has not yet left the Health
Service, will be able to enter the Na-
tional meet is still problematical, but
01 the basis of season's play the Wol-
verine leader will be ranked as an
outstanding contender.

The team championship in the Na-
tional meet will be determined by the
scores of the four low men on a six-
man team in a 36-hole qualifying
round, and the individual champion-
ship will be determined by matct. play
of the 32 low qualifiers.

A LREADY the literary muse is slow about spreading his mantle upon
my shoulders when I seat myself before a typewriter to indite the column,
so today I have asked my colleagues on the sport staff and our various visitors
to write it for me.
Desiring a certain uniformity in their contribution, I asked them all to
aniswer the same question: "Select the individual player, either Michigan or a
Michigan opponent, whom you think turned in the out-
standing performance in any one game or meet this year.
Give your reasons."
Of the answers received only two picked the same
man: "Frances 'Whitey' Wistert's one-hit, 16-strikeout
game against Ohio State at Ferry Field this year. Did not
allow 'a hit until two men were down in the ninth. Hit
one batter with a pitched ball and walked one."-Fred De-
Lano and Robert Cummins, sport reporters.

46 TACK MEDICA of Washington University, swimming
in the Intercollegiates, won the 1500 meter and the
220 and 400-yard free-style races. In the 440 he establishedt
a new mark of 4:46.8; in the 1500 he lowered the old record of 19:20.2 toI
19:12.1; and his time in the 220 was 2:13.2."-Dick Degener, National Div-
ing Champion.

"4F RANK LARSON, Minnesota end who played in Michigan's
during the Minnesota game and was the chief reason why the
passing attack didn't function. He was down on every
punt, blocked wonderfully and all in all put up one of the
finest exhibitions of football I've ever seen. He wasn't as
spectacular as Lund that day but he was more consistent."
-Robert J. Friedman, sports reporter.

Nine Numerals
Wolverine Nine To Finish
Up Season Tomorrow t
Against Iowa'
According to the official releaset
from the Board In Control of Ath-
letics, Coach Ray Fisher has award-
ed 13 letters and 9 numeral awards
to his Varsity baseball players. The
men receiving letters are: Captain
Avon Artz, '34; Ted Chapman, '34;
Joe Lerner, '36; Russ Oliver, 135;
Art Patchin, '35; Clayt Paulson, '35;
Ted Petoskey, '34; Fred Ratterman,
'34; John Regeczi, '35; Harry Tillot-
son, '34; Stan Waterbor, '34; Ed Wil-
son, '35; and "Whitey" Wistert, '34.
Varsity numerals will go to the
following: George Bolas, '36; Feld-
stein, '34; Les Fish, '34; Leland Hall,
'36; Milton Meltzer, '35; Harold
Roehrig, '35; Art Settle, '37; and
Willard Walbridge, '36.
Lerner Only Sophomore.
Of the players receiving major
awards, Artz, Petoskey, Waterbor,
and Wistert are three-letter men in
baseball, and Regeczi, Paulson, Oliver,
Patchin, and Tillotson are receiving
their letter for the second time. Joe
Lerner is the only sophomore to win
a letter.
A game with the Iowa University
nine at Ferry Field tomorrow will
close the season for the Wolverines;
a somewhat unsuccessful season in
the light of performances by former
Michigan nines under the tutelage
of Coach Fisher. Michigan must de-
feat Iowa to reach the .500 mark in
the . Conference standings. The
nine's present league record is five
wins against six losses, with an en-
tire season record of 12 victories and
11 defeats.
This year's Wolverine nine has
been one of the hardest hitting teams
Coach Fisher has ever coached here.
Five men are now hitting over .300.
Petoskey leads the team with an av-
erage of .363. Artz follows with .333,
Paulson .322, Regeczi .314, and Oliver
.304. At mid-season mark, Wistert
was hitting well over .400, Artz had
an average of .463, Petoskey and
Paulson were hitting over .390. De-
spite this hitting power which netted
the Wolverines an average of seven
runs and 10 hits , per game, they
dropped half their games.
Poor fielding turned Michigan from
a championship threat into just an-
other ball team, and accounted di-
rectly for most of the losses, although
the pitching of Wistert and Patchin
was shaky on several occasions. From
a total of 697 fielding chances, the
boys fumbled 60, for a team fielding
percentage of .916.
Besides leading the team in hitting,
Petoskey has smashed out the most
extra base blows. He is the leading
home run hitter with five circuit
drives, is tied for the team lead in
doubles with four, and has three
triples for a total of 25 extra bases.
Wistert to Pitch.
Wistert is second incextra base
hits, with a total of 16, closely follow-
ed by John Regeczi, the most improv-
ed hitter on the ball club, with 15.
Wistert, despite his huge stature
which affords opposing hurlers ample
room to pitch to, has received the
greatest number of bases on balls-
Wistert will climax his brilliant
athletic careertwhen he faces the
IHawkeyes on 'the mound tomorrow,
and if Michigan's powerful hitting
team fields with even mediocre abil-
ity, if Wistert hurls the brand of
ball he's capable of, the Wolves will
have to wait at least another year
before a Michigan nine finishes be-
low the .500 mark.

''WARD'S PERFORMANCE in the Ohio State football game was, in my
estimation, the outstanding performance of the year. But for his
interception of a long Ohio pass the Buckeyes might have scored. As it was,
Ward plucked the pass out of the air and ran 50 yards before being brought
down by a diving tackle. This changed the whole aspect of the game and
made a Michigan victory certain." - Marjorie Western, sports assistant.

"4NORMAN COTTOM of Purdue put on the best exhibition of basketball
seen on the Yost Field House floor last season. Scoring twelve points
and committing only one personal foul, he was easily the outstanding player
on the Boilermaker team that walloped Michigan 51-20. His footwork, ball-
handling, deadly marksmanship, and natural speed were
combined into an exhibition of basketball that was a rev-
.; elation to Michigan fans."-George J. Andros, sports re-
".; "TED PETOSKEY'S all-around brilliant performance
in the second baseball game of the Eastern trip
against Colgate, receives my nomination. 'Pete' drove out
two triples and two singles for five times at the plate. He
drove in three runs and scored one himself to enable the
Wolverines to defeat Colgate, 9 to 6, for their first win. He
also handled four fly balls perfectly, making two fine
_ running catches." - Art Settle, sports assistant.

** HUCK KOCSIS. In the field of, individual endeavor, Kocsis' sizzling
round of 66 in the first day's play of the Big Ten golf tourney is out-
standing. Playing under adverse conditions including a high wind which
sent most scores soaring, Kocsis breezed around the Kildeer course five under
par to set a new course record." - Bill Reed, sports assistant.

CHICAGO, May 31. - (/P) ---Caval-
-ade will carry top weight of 126
pounds when he defends his claim to
the three-year-old championship
against a field of fast stepping rivals
in the $25,000 added American Derby
Saturday at Washington Park.
His weight, the same he carried to
victory in the Kentucky Derby, will be
five pounds over that assigned to his
Brookmeade Stable mate, Time Clock;
Mrs. J. H. Whitney's Singing Wood,
and Plight, Texas Derby winner.
Alfred G. Vanderbilt's Discovery,
second to Cavalcade in the Kentucky
Derby, was given a weight impost of
118 pounds, a margin that should
make the mile and a quarter race an
exciting duel. Mata Hari, the great
filly that couldn't last at Churchill
Downs, will tote low weight of 116
With the big race only 48 hours
away, a field of 12 seemed certain.
The other entries regarded as sure

"Progress has been made in
women's sports this year," declared
Dr. Margaret Bell, director of Phy-
sical Education for women. "The
Board in Control by financing a
backboard for tennis and putting
greens will make even greater im-
provement possible." she continued.
A double backboard as high as the
wire fence is to be installed in the
east-west direction on the cement
courts. Backboards are recommend-
ed by professional players as an ex-
cellent means of developing one's
stroke. Thus the student will be able
to practice without an opponent.
The golf putting greens are to be
constructed between the Women's
Athletic Building and the tennis
courts. The ground will be elevated
and resodded with German bent.
Moreover, in the future, the eight
most promising women golfers will
be privileged to compete on the
courses around Ann Arbor without.
