Coach Fisher
Pleased With
Michigan Nine
Infield Composed Of Ford,
Oliver, Teitlebaum, And
Paulson Works Well
Coach Ray Fisher dropped his
pessimistic outlook yesterday for a
semi-optimistic disposition and left
the ball diamond after practice in a
better frame of mind than he's been
in all week.
In the fourth scrub game with the
Reserves, his Varsity nine convinced
him of several points which he's
suspected all along. The infield, com-
posed of Capt. Russ Oliver at first,
Clayt Paulson, second, George Ford,
short, and Jack Teitelbaum at the
hot corner, worked like one of those
"million dollar infields." The boys pro-
vided an impregnable defense, com-
mitting only two errors in 11 innings
and turning several drives, which were
labeled hits, into outs.
Infield Outstanding
Coach Fisher was so well pleasec
with their performance that he inti-
mated the present combination wouk
be a permanent one.
The batting packed a punch whi
had been lacking in the three pre
vious contests. John Regeczi caugh
an inside pitch with his powerfu
swing and lined it down the left-
field line for an easy homer. Teitel-
baum rapped out a double and twc
singles. Ford continued his hitting
spree with two hard-hit singles
Paulson abandoned his Heinie Schu-
ble stance at the plate long eonugh
to smash out a long triple, and Joe
Lerner hit a couple on the nose.
The pitching served up by Berger
Larson elicited favorable comment
from Fisher. From what he showed
yesterday, in four innings against
the Varsity, Larson has good control.
a fast ball which is fast, a sharp
curve,-and he knows how to use his
stuff. He had the sluggers popping
up and fanning, being combed for only
one hard hit.
Heyliger Improved
Vic Heyliger was behind the plate
again, and looked better than he did
his first appearance. Kim Williams.
who is the man to beat out for the
catching post, is showing daily im-
provement. Yesterday he actually
caught one runner stealing second by
10 yards. Berryman, Parker and Aus-
tin were also behind the bat during
the afternoon.
With Heyliger catching, Joe Lerner
was moved to right field, and it's prob-
able that the latter will be the reg-
ular rightfielder if he continues t
hit. Lerner is also a first baseman,
where he will play when and if Russ
Oliver pitches.
George Rudness, centerfielder, who
is more commonly known as "the lit-
tle giant" is dead on fly balls and
uses his speed to cover a lot of
ground.. He hasn't started to hit yet,
and has a sore arm, which developed
during the basketball season, but he
looks like the ideal man for the
leadoff spot in the batting order; with
his speed he doesn't have to hit "em"
far to get on base.
All this talent exhibited in a single
day should make the most dubious
person hopeful.

T i g e r Hurlers
For 12-4 Win
LAKELAND, Fla., March 23 -(AP)-

Showing no preference between two
veteran hurlers and a rookie, the
Brooklyn Dodgers pounded out a 12
to 4 decision over the Detroit Tigers
Paced by Lonny Frey, who cracked
out a home run, double and single,
the Dodgers got to Fred Marberry for
six hits and four runs in three in-
nings, found Elden Auker for four
more runs in the next five frames and
then finished up by scoring four runs
off rookie Mike Cesnovar in the ninth.
Frey also fielded brilliantly, starting
four double plays.
Tom Zachary and Watson Clark

to nine hits, only four of them and
oire run coming off the former dur-
ing the five innings he was on the
It was the second victory of the
Dodgers over the Tigers in the grape-
fruit league and leaves the Dodgers'
record unblemished in major league
competition this season.

Michigoan Tank men After Sixth.

Says Fraternities

(COnt iiued frOM Page 1)

IT is a debatable question at present
whether the staid foreign corres-
>ondents who write for us from Berlin
.nd Rome, or the sport scribes who
rre following the major league base-
'all teams around the south wield the
treater power over public opinions.
A sports writer, certainly, can make
m impetuous ball player look small-
*r than a fly's eye, and have ten mil-
ion of us snowbound northerners be-
ieving it. The parallel cases of Bill
terry last summer and Dizzy Dean
this spring are good evidence.
People still pop up from strange
;orners and yell at Terry, "Are the
Dodgers still in the League?" Terry
ioesn't need any reminders after
hat last disastrous series with Brook-
yn last fall. Likewise, Dean will go
nany a moon before he ceases to
.ead and hear about the reverbera-
tions from his "smart-eleck" crackE
Tbout the revered "King of Swat."
The scribes, incidentally, are
the boys who keep alive these li't-
tle squabbles which make good
copy on dull days. Most people
would have forgotten the Med-
wiclgOwen battle on the seventh
game of the World Series long
ago if Salsinger, Shaver, Ward,
and the rest of the fraternity
hadn't fanned the embers. Med-
wick's unpopularity in Detroit
makes good copy out of his yell-
ing at reporters and refusing to
pose for a "kiss-and-make-up"
picture with Marvin Owen.
It seems to me that Medwick was
"Ducky" to his intimates long before
that seventh game, but Bud Shaver
insists it was given to him for the
graceful way he doged pop bottles
and pies during the left field uprising.
The Detroit boys should get togeth-
er on their Sunday stories out of the
Tigers' spring camp. If you read the
papers last Sunday you noticed that
Shaver raved for a column .or more
about the stellar reserve infield ma-
terial Cochrance had uncovered. The
same day H. G. Salsinger was writ-
ing very emphatically that the Tiger
reserves were no great shakes at eith-
vr batting or fielding, and that the
Bengals had better hang all sorts of
good-luck charms on the regulars if
they didn't want to emulate the 1935
Red Wings.
BABE RUTH would be worth men-
tion every day if he were hoeing
potatoes on a Norwegian fjord or sew-
ing shirts in a Ghetto sweat-shop. He
is almost as good copy as our own Mr.
Yost, who will comment on everything
from airplanes in Ferry Field to foot-
a11 prospects for 1950 - if you can
htand the smell of stale cigar smoke
.nd stay until the old gent says some-
thing significant.
Incidentally, there is no danger of
Communism raising its ugly head in
our athletic administration. Yost is
going to give a talk on the military
history of the United States at a inili-
tary-medico institute here n e x t
:month, and Phil C. Pack, publicity
director, writes patriotic poems for
the American Legion.
A FRIEND tells us that our horse
racing column yesterday was not
^omplete without this stoiy: It seems
that an employee in a downtown cig-
ar store gave a hanger-on around
here $20 to place, for him, on a cer-
tain horse at an adjacent cigar store.
The bet was duly laid and the nag
galloped home ahead of the field, pay-
ing some magnificent sums. The bet-
tor was, needless to say, elated, and
sent his lieutenant back to gather in
he shekels. He did, all right, but
lid not return with the 100 berries
o cigar store No. 1. He hasn't been
seen since.

When Michigan's swimming team
takes to the water next Friday at
Harvard for the preliminaries to the
National Collegiate championship
meet, Coach Matt Mann's tankmen1
will be after their sixth national title
in nine years.
The Wolverines have been national
-hanpions in 1927, 1928, 1931, 1932,
and 1934, and finished second to
Northwestern in 1929, 1930, and 1933.
Coach Mann plans to take east

hance to place, andthe showing
made by the Wolverines in the Big
Ten meet indicate that Michigan will
again be victorious.

up 30 counters to 18 for Southern
California and 15 each for Yale and

three first places.
