DNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1934 THE MICHIGAN DAILY
TO PROFESSOR RALPH AIGLER, chairman of the Board in Control
of Athletics: Will you please consider making a bid for the Big Ten
outdoor track meet for Ann Arbor next spring when the board meets in
December to make that, and other decisions? ,
This column published a plea, last year, that the meet be brought to
Ann Arbor. Perhaps you didn't see it, since you were in the West recuperat-
ing from a serious illness. We're glad you're able to be back.
That column emphasized the desirability of having the meet here from a
spectator's viewpoint. Shortly' after its publication I received a letter from
Harmon Wolfe, 1932 track captain, supporting our campaign and showing
how much a big home meet means to the athletes themselves.
He pointed out how trips can bind a team into a fighting whole,
but also how athletes like to appear before a home crowd, and perform
better at home for that reason. The seniors, particularly, are tired of
traveling, of appearing before hostile crowds in their big meets. They
want to win at home, where their own relatives, friends and classmates
are in the stands.
Michigan's going to have another good team next year. Captain Harvey
Smith and Willis Ward and several others will be ending their college careers
in the Big Ten meet. We think they would like to finish at Ferry Field.
I realize, of course, that the cost is a fundamental consideration. If it is
going to mean a loss, a bigger loss than the University athletic fund can
afford, we will say no more about it, only, won't you consider the matter,

The football managers at Ferry Field are up to their old tricks
again, trying to chase former-Michigan-All-American Ernie Vick out of
secret practice sessions. They did it yesterday for the third consecutive
year. Also, they have not yet provided a supply of apples for the corre-
spondents. Tish, tish. Did you never study principles of publicity?
With Johnny Regeczi graduating in June and no outstanding punter
among the juniors and sophomores on the grid squad we watched with
interest the punting drill featured in yesterday's freshman practice. One
punter stood out, a tall, well-built youngster named Nickerson from U. of D.
High. He takes a lot of time getting his kicks away but was sending beautiful
spirals ten or fifteen yards farther than any of the other booters. He is also
a good passer. * * * * * *
1933 Net Team
The prospects fbr the 1935 tennis
team are exceptionally fine, accord-
ing to Coach John Johnstone. While
Seymour Seigel and Howard Kahn
are the only leftovers from last year's
Varsity team which placed second
in the Big Ten Conference, some
fine prospects from last year's fresh-
man squad are expected to fill the
Rodriguez, the Porto Rican star,
Edmunds, Sherwood, and Dean are
the freshmen. Besides this material1
Coach Johnstone is counting heavily
on Anderson, a transfer from Grand
Rapids Junior College, and Eskowitz
and Thornwood, who were reserves
on the 1934 team.
Practice will begin as soon as the
invitation and orientation tourna-
ments are over and continue until
Christmas. Doubles will be stressed
during this time as Coach Johnstone
feels that last year's double combina-
tions were not up to standard. After
Christmas vacation, practices will
continue until the tournament season'
The invitational tournament begins
next week and a large turnout is ex-
pected. The freshmen tournament
has reached the quarter-finals and
Coach Johnstone said that an ex-
ceptionally fine group of tennis play-
ers had been uncovered among the
Women Athletes Must
Get Health Rechecks
Women who intend to partici-
pate in the various Intramural and
Interclass tournaments this year
must have a heart and lung re-
check if they have not had the
physical examination this fall, ac-
cording to Dr. Margaret Bell, head
of women's athletics. The Field
House will be open from 4 to 6
p.m. today for that purpose. 0
Dean And Co. Cut
Lead To One Game
Just who the National League rep-
resentative will be in the forthcoming
World Series has the entire baseball
world wondering. Driving toward the
pennant in a terrific last minute
spurt, the St. Louis Cardinals gained
another full game on the league-lead-
ing Giants when Curt Davis, youth-
ful Philly pitcher, shut out the Terry-
men, while Dizzy Dean set back the
Pirates by a 3-2 decision.
The Giants must win their three re-
maining games while the Cards must
win their five remaining games in
order to have a playoff series for the
flag and the right to oppose the De-
troit Tigers in the big October classic.
CHI PSI HOCKEY WINNERS
Chi Psi fraternity hockey team was
the winner of the Interfraternity
Hockey meet last winter instead of
Chi Phi as was stated in yesterday's
Russell Oliver looks like another Stanley Fay at quarterback to us.
He will undoubtedly be a conservative, as Zit Tessmer and Fay were.
Oliver has more brains than most football players and can, we think,
be counted upon to make the best possible use of the material at hand.
