Homer, Dean 's




League Openers

Opener Stopped
By Chilly Blasts
Babe Ruth Accounts For
Four Runs With Homer
And Single
Cubs Beat Cards
Dizzy Dean Suffers Leg
Injury In First Inning;
Red Sox Beat Yanks, 1-0
(By Associated Press)
For the fifth time in seven years,
frowning weather prevented all clubs
in the major leagues taking part in
baseball's annual inaugiral today.
Wintry blasts kept President Roose-
velt on the sidelines and his tradi-
tional tossing out of-the first ball
was withheld as the Senators had to
postpone their opener with the Ath-
letics in Washington. Mickey Coch-
rane's defending American League
champions, the Detroit Tigers, were
forced to abandon their start against
the White Sox in Detroit because of
BOSTON, Apil 16.- (P) - With
Babe Ruth driving out a home run
and a single and personally account-
ing for all of Boston's runs, the Braves
today defeated the New York Giants
4 to 2 as the former Yankee slugger
made his National League debut be-
fore a shivering crowd of 25,000.
CHICAGO, April 16. -(P) -Dizzy
Dean suffered a painful leg injury in
the first inning -of his 195 debut
today and the Chicago Cubs defeated
the world's championship St. Louis
Cardinals, 4 to 3, before 15,500 shiv-
ering spectators.
Doc Weaver, Cardinal trainer, said
he was sure the injury at worst was
a slight bruise of the tibia bone a little
above the left ankle.
NEW YORK, April 16. --() -The
new model, stream-lined Yankees,
looking impotent indeed without Babe
Ruth in the line-up, yielded to the
superb pitching of Wesley Ferrell to-
day in a frigid opening tussle With the
Boston Red Sox.
With brother Rick Ferrell on the re-
ceiving end of baseball's most famous
family battery, the North Carolina
right-hander held' the New Yorkers
to two hits, out-pitched the Great
Vernon (Lefty) Gomez, the American
League's leading flinger, and gained a
brilliant 1-0 decision.

Headed For Big Year
CHICAGO, April 16 -(P)- Joining
in the general optimism for a big
baseball year, both artistically and
financially, the American Association,
with the same eight clubs which
started back in 1902, opens its thirty-,
fourth championship campaign.
The playoff system, under which
the leader of the Western Division

of the league met the top team in the
Eastern section for the title, has been
dropped, but President Thomas Jef-
ferson Hickey is certain that the
campaign will be even more success-
ful than last year

Baseball Team
Back Indoors
Following Trip
Fisher Voices Hope After
Only Fair Showing On
Southern Campaign
The Wolverine' baseball team
showed improvement on its recent
spring training trip, but rain and, in
one case, snow, which caused can-
cellation of four of the nine games
originally scheduled, arrested de-
velopment on the whole and in the
hitting department in particular,
Coach Ray Fisher said yesterday.
The mentor, who restricted practice
to light workouts for the batteries
within . the confines of Yost Field
House yesterday, had more of a bone
to pick with the weather his boys
ran into rather than with the per-
formance of hi team.
Two of the five games played were
won, Art Patchin and Berger Larson
deservedly being credited with the
wins, while John Gee, Capt. Russ
Oliver, and Larson lost a game apiece.
Larson and Patchin looked best. The
former lost a tough game to Duke
University, 4 to 0, the score of which
would have been 1 to 0, Fisher indi-
cated, if better fielding support had
been given. At bat the Wolverines
could get only one hit off Pete Nak-
tenis, a single by Lerner on a hit and
run play. ,
Patchin was hard to hit, allowing
but two hits against Marshall in the
opener to win 8 to 3, but he was wild
throughout the game and in others.
He and Larson teamed up against
Navy, allowing but two hits apiece
to gain a 3 to 1 victory when Williams
doubled to drive in two runs in the
The Michigan hitters failed to get
started, however, not one batter hav-
ing a "big day" in any of the games.
Only two, Oliver and Kim Williams,
sophomore catcher, were able to bat
.300. Both averaged a hit a game,
Oliver batting .312 and Williams, .333.
Two of Williams' hits were doubles.
Of those to show most improvement
Fisher pointed out Kim Williams,
who caught every game on the south-
ern jaunt. He led his mates as a
hitter, winning one game with a
timely blow, but more especially his
improvement in nipping base run-
ners pleased his coach.
Although Jack Teitelbaum and
George Rudness were the weakest hit-
ters, they starred in the field. Teitel-
baum at short pulled two brilliant
fielding plays to get pitchers out of
bad holes, and Rudness established
himself as the best fielding outfielder
in the outer garden.
VANCOUVER, B. C., April 16. -P)
- The Detroit Olympics packed the
unofficial title of minor league hockey
champions in their bags today to
leave behind a crew of disgruntled

NEXT in our series on "Sports1
Which Are Not Sports" we take
up the matter of hitch-hiking, lowly
pastime of the proletarian who would
get from where he is to somewhere
Of course, it is a little embar-
rassing to waggle a beseeching
digit at snooty motorists, but
"share the wealth" is one of the
first precepts of Communism and,
after all, aren't we all Commu-
nists in this hotbed of radicalism?
Personally, I am not above join-
ing the hoi polloi on Broadway
Bridge when I want a ride to Detroit
and haven't the essential kale. Most
knights of the errant thumb will
agree with me that we give as much,
as we get. Our continual chatter is
worth the price of a railway ticket
to Detroit or, when necessary, we can
listen with the utmost concentration
to everything from reminiscenses of
college days in the '90's to how the
new baby is doing on a diet of ruta-
bagas and hossenpfeffer.
Everytime I get my baggage and
feet satisfactorily bestowed in some-
body else's car I start to unreel a line
of guff about football prospects for
the coming season. You know, Kipke
and me, both good advertisers.
Just before school started last fall
I rode from Battle Creek to Kalama-
zoo with an aged country gentleman
in his battered ark. We had plenty
of time to talk, and I gave him the
usual 15 minute monologue on how
Kipke's team wouldn't be "quite as
strong as last year" but carry plenty

of guns to get through the season un-
As I recall the old farmer didn't
say a word all the way to Kala-
mazoo, but when we neared the
center of that city he reached
across me and opened 'the door,
saying, "Bah, I graduated from
Michigan Agricultural College in
'93. What the hell do I care
about your football team!" Luck-
ily he had no lethal weapon
Another time, two years ago, I
bummed out from Detroit with an-
other wayfarer whom I picked up on
the corner of Plymouth Road and
Grand River. Once again I slipped
naturally into football as the driver
slipped into high gear after packing
us away.
I was in good form that day, and
had the 1933 Wolverines doped to be
a pack of cougars wielding sledge
hammers and greased lightning, but
my compatriot kept making slight'
corrections in my statements of fact.
He was obviously a student, a tall,
hollow-cheeked fellow, who looked as
though he had risen from a sick bed
to return to school.
His impertinent, but always ac-
curate, interruptions continued
as my tale unfolded. Finally I
turned to him and whispered,
"Say, my name is Kipke, Harry
Kipke. What's yours?"
"Tage Jacobson."
I shut up because I knew, if you
didn't, that Jacobson was an out-
standing tackle prospect that fall.

Grid Squad Is
Sent Through
Drill Indoors
Spring Training Period To
End May 3 With Annual
Spring Game
Weather, more like the end of the
regular season than that of a spring
practice session, forced Coach Harry
Kipke and his charges into the con-
fines of Yost Field House yesterday.
The squad was sent through a._long
passing drill followed by work on fun-
The drill was marked by the return
to action of Steve Remias, Cedric
Sweet and Steve Uricek. Sweet and
Remias are both fullbacks and shared
the Varsity post last season. Remias
started the season in the first-string
backfield but Sweet displaced him in
one of the many shake-ups which the
squad endured and held the position
until the end of the season. Uricek
was the regular quarterback on Coach
Weber's Phys. Ed. eleven.
Sweet played a consistently good
defensive game all year and showed
his offensive power in the Georgia
Tech game by running from the Mich-
igan 23-yard line to the Yellowjacket
17-yard marker in the closing minutes
of the contest. His left-footed punt-
ing was good, and the coaches are
counting on him to replace Johnny
Regeczi as the punt in Michigan's
"punt, pass and prayer."
The spring practice season will end
May 3 with the annual game between
the Yellow and Blue squads according
to Wally Weber. Coach Cliff Keen.,
who has been handling the wrestling
team,treturned to action yesterday as
Varsity line coach.
Alpha Delta Phi Takes
Fraternity Track Crown
Alpha Delta Phi won the inter-fra-
ternity track meet with a total of 36
points while the Blue Raiders won the

Proposed Professional Match
Recalls Hagen-Fischer Battle

Should Olin Dutra, National Open
Champion, and Jimmy Thompson,
Australian Open Champion come to
an agreement with University offi-
cials, they will play Johnny Fischer
and Chuck Kocsis in a best ball four-
some over theĀ° University golf course
some time in May, according to Prof.
Thomas C. Trueblood, coach.
If arrangements can be satisfactor-
ily completed Dutra and Thompson
will be following in the footsteps of
two other great professionals who
played in Ann Arbor three years ago.
In 1932 Walter Hagen, the old
maestro of the links, and Josez Jur-
ado, seven times Open Champion of
South America, battled Johnny Fisch-,
er and Captain Lenfesty over the
then new University course in one
of the most brilliant golfing exhibi-
tions seen here or anywhere else.
Outdrove Hagen
It was a dual between Hagen and
Fischer all the way. The lanky Wolv-
erine sophomore outdrove Hagen all
day and his play around the greens
was superb.
Lenfesty did his part for the Mich-
igan side of the best ball foursome
by matching the South American
wizard stroke for stroke. But it was
the golf displayed by Hagen and
Fischer that kept the large gallery
applauding all afternoon.
Not a hole was won in the entire
match that was not either a birdie
or an eagle. Fischer had seven bird-
ies and an eagle while Hagen had six
birdies and was never over par. The
strain was terrific, but neither of the
players cracked. Fischer's drive out
of bounds on the 12th was the only
bit of erratic play in the entire round.
Coming up to the 18th tee, Mich-
igan was one up. Both Hagen and
Jurado were on the green in two and
both approximately 12 feet from the
pin. Fischer's second carried well to
the back and top of the green and
came to rest about 40 feet from the
Johnny Sinks It
Here was the opportunity the pro-
fessionals had been waiting for, it
was a fine chance to tie up the match.
Fischer carefully addressed his ball.
The tension was terrific, and then
with his smooth, decisive putting
stroke Johnny struck the ball. It ran
beautifully down the well kept green,
following a perfect curving line all
the way, and dropped kerplunk into
the cup for a birdie three as the
crowd almost went crazy. Hagen
and Jurado both missed their putts
and a pair of Michigan golfers had

defeated two of the world's greatest
professionals, two up.
Both Hagen and Fischer gave old
man par a terrific lacing, Hagen by
five strokes with a 67, and Fischer by
four strokes with a 68, due to his one
bad drive.
If Dutra and Thompson do comne
here to play Fischer and Kocsis, it
should be another great match, with
the Wolverines conceded a good deal
more of a chance than they were
against Hagen and Jurado. The
competition is perhaps not quite so
strong, while Kocsis is unquestionably
a better golfer than Lenfesty and
Fischer has a year of Walker Cup
experience to give him added ability
and confidence.

Patehin And Larson Are
Effective On Recent Trip

Using the won and lost columns as
the basis for evaluating the merit of
Michigan's baseball team, the Wolv-
erines weren't very impressive on
their Southern training trip, for
they won only two of the five games
But to get a true picture of Mich-
igan's strength, take a look behind
the scenes! In Art Patchin and
Berger Larson, Coach Ray Fisher has
two right handers as good as any inj
the Big Ten. Patchin pitched a total
of 16 innings and gave up only four1
hits. He beat Marshall College in
the opener, holding the Herd to twoI
hits, gave one hit in a two-inning re-
lief role against Virginia and yieldedr
one hit in five innings to the Navy.
Larson hurled 13 innings in which
he was touched foriseven hits, four
of which were very scratchy. He
pitched the best ball of the trip
against Duke in the second game.1
Coach Fisher instructed Larson to{
"curve the devil out of the Duke hit-
ters" which he did with such effective-
ness that the Blue Devils, one of the
strongest college teams in the coun-
try, could get only one hard-hit ballt
ors him all afternoon.
Larson and Patchin split the mound
duties in the Navy game, holding
the Midshipmen to three' hits and
striking out eleven. After the game,
the Navy coach remarked that Mich-
igan's pitchers "were just too good
for my boys."
Michigan's two giant sophomore

pitchers, John Gee, southpaw, and
George Butler, right hander, were al-
most unhittable, but wildness caused
the downfall of both. Butler started
against Virginia and surrendered one
hit in four and two-thirds innings.
With two out in the fifth, his wild
complex set in and he walked four
men forcing in a run, whereupon'
Fisher took him out.
Gee breezed through four hitless
frames against Maryland, but in the
fifth, a base hit, four bases on balls,
a wild pitch, an error, and an over-
throw to second base all charged to
Gee, gave the Terrapins five runs and
the ball game.
