Cardinals And Giants Favorites
To Take National League Flag
Looking over the record books and
pondering on results so far this year
we have come to the conclusion that
the diving crown for both high and
low board is open to one of eight men:
Bill Busby of Iowa, John Flocco of
West Chester State Teachers (W.
Va.), Frank Kurtz of Southern Cali-
fornia, Earl Jansen of Illinois, and
the Michigan quartet of Frank Feh-'
senfeld, Ned Diefendorf, Ben Grady,
and Der Johnston.
Busby was crowned Big Ten champ-
ion last Saturday with 121.12 points,
with Fehsenfeld second with 114.36.
Diefendorf with 109.24, Jansen with
106.96, Grady with 106.64, and John-
ston with 105.94 finished in that or-
Michigan's feat in qualifying its
complete squad of four divers out of
19 original entries is unparalleled ini
Conference history, and competition
was so close that one bad dive could
have disrupted the last four places,
which in fact was the case when
Johnston missed his one and one-half
"Flying Dutchman" when he was in
third place and slipped to sixth.
Getting back to our dope sheet, it
would seem to the casual observer
that Busby was the best diver among
the six above, but other results this
year and last prove that the outcome
of the Big Ten meet is only one day's
rating of these performers.
Busby finished second to Degener
in the Big Ten last year but placed
seventh in the Nationals, while John-
ston finished out of the money in the
Conference and was beaten only by
Degener and Wayne in the N.C.A.A.
This year Jansen beat Busby in a
dual meet, and the Michigan fourl
have beaten each other spasmodically,
casting grief into any one who might
attempt to rate their ability.
Coach Mann says Flocco is the boy
to wa'tch. The West Chester boy
was beaten out by Johnston last year
for third place by .8 of a point.
Kurtz finished fifth, .84 of a point
behind Flocco, and was advanced to
third place on the All-America ahead
of Johnston, Busby, and Flocco. ,This
year the Southern California diver
was beaten by Galitzen in an open
meet, but has won handily in all his

and comparisons we find ourselves

Stoller in the dash. Ward is also en-

Larson, Settle And Gee
Hold Varsity Batters To
Michigan's baseball squad wel-
comed the official appearance of
spring yesterday with a nine inning
game between the Regulars and Yan-
nigans on the Ferry Field diamond.
It became evident that the pitch-
ng is further advanced than the hit-
ting for Berger Larson, Art "Lefty"
Settile and John Gee, who divided
the pitching against the Varsity, held
,he wolverine sluggers to five hits.
No Hits Off Gee
Berger Larson yielded two hits in
three innings, a double by Teitle-
baum and a single by Ford. Settle
was touched for singles by Capt.
Oliver, Regeczi and Ford in four
frames, and Gee, the 212-pound, six-
foot-seven-inch southpaw escaped
unscathed in the last two innings.

lies in the bats of Clayt Paulson, Kiir

Coach Fisher, in his desperate
search for a catcher, tried Vic Hey-
liger, erstwhilenoutfielder, behind the
plate, but the move will probably not
be a permanent one. In the games
played Wednesday and yesterday,
none of the six catchers whom Fisher
has used, succeeded in catching a
base stealer, and the reason wasn't
due to any fleetness of foot exhibited
by the purloiners.
Fisher frankly admits that the
catching problem has him up in the
air, but he finds some consolation in
the antics of his infield and hopeful
anticipations of good pitching and
