Regeczi's H a r d Hitting
Continues; Infield Play
Shows Improvement
Michigan's baseball squad held its
seventh outdoor practice on Ferry
Field yesterday despite strong winds
which made hands sting from the
crack of bats and did strange things
to fly balls.
Play wasn't as long or intensive ask
it has been, for Coach Fisher warned
against sore arms which come from
hard throwing on cold days.
Hitting and fielding looked better
yesterday after taking a turn for the
worse Wednesday. With Teitelbaum
and George Ford shifted back to short
and third, the infield made only one
error, a bad throw by Teitelbaum after
he went far to his left to make a hard
After getting five hits in six times
at bat on Wednesday, John Regeczi
drove out two singles in three trips
to the plate. Clayt Paulson, who is
beginning to hit like he did last year,
lined out a double and single, and
George Ford snapped out of a short
hitting slump with a long homer to
Some of the squad are so convinced
that John Regeczi is a dead left field
hitter that they play him on the left
infield foul line. With Regeczi at
bat and the wind blowing to left
field, Tom Austin, playing left field
for the reserves, actually moved into
foul territory. As expected, Regeczi
hit a long fly to left which the wind
carried 15 feet foul, and Austin, who
is no fleet runner, was easily under
Long John Gee turne in a com-
mendable h u r li n g performance
against the reserves, in view of the
cold weather. For a man who is six
feet-eight, the southpaw displayed
great agility in fielding bunts. He
fields them fast and gets his throws
away rapidly.
Man O' War, greatest of American
race horses, is 18 years old today.,


SEEN in the papers: A suggestion
to basketball coaches, "If Basket-
ball Teams Get Tired, Build A
Springy Floor." The story has a
Stanford University dateline but that
is obviously a blind to keep from
hurting our basketball team's feel-
ings, because if that suggestion ap-
plies to anyone it applies to Cappon's
1935 cage edition, now long dead,
thank heaven.
The story says that actual tests
showed that players recovered in
five to 80 minutes after playing
on an elastic floor, but required
80 minutes to an hour and a half
after playing on a rigid floor.
No doubt that is scientifically cor-
rect, but the idea of an elastic basket-
ball floor amuses me. It certainly
would be convenient. Some big Ohio
rubber company could produce elastic
courts very cheaply, especially since
they could be all made the same size.
Then, upon delivery, and B and G
boys could just stretch the thing
lengthwise and sidewise to fit the
Field House, and stake it down like
they do a circus tent.
The real fun, though, would
come when the Amazed-and-Blue
basketeers took the floor. Can't
you imagine it? Goose Joslin
and Leviticus Gee playing leap-
frog over the resilent surface,
with Georgie Rudness bouncing
about like a drunken marionette.
IT would be fun, too, to see Gee able
to get more than six inches off the
floor on the tip-off, and sleepy-eyed
Captain Plummer move about with
a springy step. Maybe the substi-
tute's bench ought to be similarly sur-
faced, to provide concurrent anima-
tion among those seated there.
All levity aside, there is a great deal
of truth in this stuff about a dead
floor. I recall the state interscholas-
tic championships in 1930, when Ann
Arbor high, led by Billy Pegan and
Doug Nott, met Detroit Northern in
the semi-finals.
The game was played on a
makeshift court erected on the
hockey ice at the Olympia in
Detro.t, and was probably the
deadest floor ever invented.
Runt-like Pegan was the finest

dribbler in the Middle West, but
he was a complete flop on that
Ann Arbor's dribbling attack col-
lapsed against Northern's short-pass-
ing offense, with Manny Fishman and
Harry Solomon in the key positions.
The Eskimoes won by a top-heavy
score. Nott and Pegan both said af-
ter the game that they had never
been so tired before in their lives.
It was like trying to run through
ankle-deep sand and dribble a cro-
quet ball.
Battle Of Sprinters
Looms As Highlight
Of California Meet
To those track fans who consider
the dash events to be the most at-
tractive on any program, the Mich-
igan-California meet April 13 will be
almost certain to provide sufficient
thrills. In the 100-yard dash there
will be four and possibly five entries
capable of doing 9.6 second and prob-
ably four capable of 21.8 seconds or
better in the 220.
George Anderson, the Bears' sensa-
tional sprinter, leads the parade in
both events with recorded times of
9.4 seconds in the hundred, the
world's record, and 21 seconds flat
in the 220, set on the straightaway.
Michigan will offer serious compe-
tition for Anderson in both events,
however, with Willis Ward and Sam
Stoller at 100 yards and Fred Stiles,
possibly Stoller, and one other entry
at 220 yards.
In the hundred both Ward and
Stoller have clone 9.6 seconds, Ward
in winning the Conference meet in
1933 and Stoller in running behind
Jesse Owens of Ohio State, in the
National Interscholastic meet of 1933
as Owens was timed in :09.4.
Anderson this year has done :09.5
outdoors, but none of the Wolverine
sprinters has been tested. Mushy
Pollock, Anderson's teammate who
has been credited with :09.6, this
year has done :09.8.
In the 220, Stiles was clocked at
21.8 seconds last year as a freshman.
Stoller has never run the event in
individual competition but is being
primed by Coach Charlie Hoyt as a
possible entry. Another Wolverine,.
capable of better than :22, may be
taken on the trip.
Pollock has been credited with
