Hurt In Drill
Jennings Hit In Head By
Bat; Heyliger Sprains
Batting Slump Of Varsity
Probably Due To Cold
Two,Michigan baseball players were
injured in yesterday's outdoor prac-
tice at Ferry Field. Vic Heyliger, who
suffered a severe sprain, if not a
break, of his left ankle, will as a
result be out from "two to four
weeks," while Ferris Jennings, With a
bad vertical gash over his right eye,
will be absent from practice for two
or three days.
Jennings, sophomore infielder, was
injured by a flying bat while sitting
on the sidelines waiting for the side
to be retired. It was Matt Patanelli's
bludgeon which slipped, flew into a
crowd of lounging ball players, and
hit Jennings with a resounding smack
on the forehead. Fearing that he
might have suffered a fracture, Dr.
Frank Lynam examined the wound
and found that the bone had not
been damaged. Because of the pecu-
liar nature of the wound only two
stitches were necessary.
Hurt Going Into Second
Heyliger made the often fatal mis-
take of failing to go through with
a slide when once started. Hitting
the ball down the third base line
for what appeared to be a double,
Heyliger rounded first and went down
to second, but Regeczi's fast throw
came into second with Heyliger sev-
eral feet away from the bag. Unable
to decide whether to slide or not,
Heyliger met the tag awkwardly,
twisting his ankle. The injury will
more than likely cost him a berth on
the squad of 16 which will make the
spring training jaunt through the
South during vacation.
Yesterday's practice besides seeing
the temporary loss of a promising
catcher and outfield prospect, and a
reserve infielder, saw Michigan's Var-
sity practically helpless against John
Gee, lefthanded Schoolboy Rowe of
the Michigan forces, who gave up
but five hits in six innings and got a
single to boot.
Gee Pleases Coach
Fisher was greatly encouraged by
the progress of the giant southpaw,
but if he was pleased with. Gee, the
showing of George Butler, erstwhile
promising sophomore xighthander,
drove him to the wailing wall. But-
ler hurled against the reserves and
was in difficulty all afternoon. He
lacked control, pitching strategy;
gave too many passes and hits and
runs, and threw wildly to catch base-
The day was cold, probably ac-
counting for the lack of Varsity hit-
ting to a certain degree. Russ Oliver
and Bill Anderson worked a few inn-
ings for the reserves and the Varsity
respectively, after Gee and Butler
Fisher juggled his infield, putting
George Ford at short and Jack Teit-
lebaum at third.
Howell Turns Back On

60 Men Report
For First Grid
Exactly 60 men reported for the
first outdoor session of spring foot-
ball practice yesterday afternoon on
Ferry Field. Coach Harry Kipke ex-
pressed himself thoroughly pleased
with the turnout which was the larg-
est since the first night workout two
All veterans except those actively
engaged in other sports reported, and
the most notable presence was Harry
Wright with 230-odd pounds resplen-
dent in a new pair of yellow silk foot-

day. Chris Everhardus also reported
for the first time.
After a rough afternoon devoted to
fundamentals, several squads swung
into a vigorous signal drill. The first
squad was made up of George Ghes-
quire and Arthur Valpey at ends, Ed
Greenwald and Bob Schroeder at the
tackles, Frank Lett and Ernest Ped-
erson at guards, Wright at center,
Joe Ellis and Chris Everhardus at
halves, Norm Nickerson at full and
Captain Bill Renner at quarterback.
Questioned about Wright and his
work at center, Kipke said that it

After all, all I know is what I read in books. Having been at Leo's in

had stayed away, I would be much more qualified to discourse on the place.
Again I must confess that my future is undeniably a dreary prospect.
I throw away my money, money that I can readily spare, money that is my
j own, but I suppose that is no concern of mine. How hopeless it all is! I am so
unfortunate as to enjoy the thrill of winning several dollars for the one I put
up and will, therefore, risk said dollar to take the chance. How much better it
would be to spend it on beer!

DEAR LEO'S BREAD AND BUTTER:
Confessing, first of all, that I never have been in Leo's. But, does a
general see the terrain over which his troops are fighting, and does President
Roosevelt talk personally with every little share-cropper whom he is trying
to help? No! They have trusted lieutenants who handle the detail work for
Since I do not know you from the proverbial Adam I cannot say for
certain that you are a "ratty-looking individual," but your logic is faulty
in trying to prove that you not by saying that you are a "College Sudent."
A logician would say, "A. No college students are ratty-looking. B. I am a
college student. C. Therefore, I am not ratty-looking." The logic is obviously
wrong because the "A" premise is wrong. Some college students are ratty-
And if you can readily spare the money you mention, will you please
write any further letters you may address to me on a little better stationery
than the cheap notebook paper your first letter is on? Incidentally, if you are
"flush" why bother with dollar bets, as you say you do? I thought the usual
sum was two dollars?
Far be it from me to remove from temptation's, way any boys or
girls who want to spend their money on the ponies, but I do wish, Bread and
Butter, that you and your cronies would stop trying to dignify your pastime
with the name "sport." It ranks on a part with shooting crap or playing
poker, having nothing to raise it to the level of pitching pennies.
P.S.: What can you do, L.B. and B., with 13 "paper" dollars?

Despite these victories Oklahoma
State was unable to win the team
trophy because of their weakness in
the other weights. Rex Perry and
Ross Flood of the winning Cowboys
annexed their third consecutive
championship in the 118 and 126
classes, while Frank Lewis captured
their other individual title.
Conference teams won in two
weights. Ralph ,Silverstein of Illi-
nois, Big Ten 175 champ, won his
division, and Charles McDaniels, In-
diana's burly sophomore heavyweight,
repeated his Big Ten performance,
taking the unlimited class.
Illinois put two men in the finals,
George Leadbetter losing to Perry in
the 118 class and John Mcllvoy being
defeated in the finals of 145 class by
the sensational Martin.
AN OVER-ZEALOUS photographer probably robbed Bob Osgood and Mich-
igan of five points in the high-hurdles in Saturday's Butler relays. Os-
goud was leading the field as he topped the second hurdle, but a photographer
chose that moment to get an action picture and snapped a flash bulb full in
Osgood's eyes. Osgood was momentarily blinded and crashed down into the
hurdle, so stunned that he was unable to finish.
He won his preliminary heat in 7.5 seconds, while Caldemeyer of In-
diana beat Willis Ward by inches in the finals, with a time of 7.6.
At the same time Osgood's performance in the mile relay probably was
the deciding factor in giving Michigan the team title. Stiles, running first
for Michigan, was boxed on a turn, and in fifth place when he handed the
baton to Harvey Patton who moved to fourth before passing the wand to

Michigan ten points.
The Owens-Stoller duel in the 60-yard dash was unusual in that the
Buckeye sprinter got off the blocks very quickly and had a good lead before
Stoller started coming up. The latter had closed the gap to a few inches when
Owes broke the tape. Ward got a very poor start, for him, and never ser-
iously threatened the leaders.
