THE MICHIGAN DAILY
To Open Season Against Spartans
*-By ART CARSTENS-. 4
EVERY NOW AND THEN our desk
gets all cluttered up with corre-
spondence so that, on days like this,
when it's far more pleasant to sit,
on the Angell Hall steps than slave
over a typewriter, we like to kill two
birds with one stone and run a few
of the better letters. Here they are:
I understand that there is a good
story connected with one of the mo-
tor-driven lawn mowers used at the
University golf course. I'm not sure
of the details and so won't try to tell
you the tale, but I'm sure you can get
it by asking Mr. Yost about the lawn1
mower he bought on the installment;
plan several years ago. Be sure to
find out if the last payment has been
IDwas so, so sorry that we couldn't
get together on that date for the
opening baseball game in Detroit
which you so generously suggested. I1
would have LOVED to go, but didn't
have a single thing to wear.
And, of course, the girls here in the
house would think I was being too,
too bold to call up a boy that I hadn't
Oceans of regret,
Dear Dorothy Fan:
Maybe neither of us missed any-

I'll bet you're the guy whorode
to Detroit with me three times in
three weeks last winter. This fellow,.
whoever he was, apparently didn't
recognize his benefactor (me) and
gave me the same guff about the
Michigan football each time.;
Of course I couldn't interrupt him
to tell him to shut up, since he was
my guest, but I certainly would have
liked to brain him with a wrench the
That taught me a lesson though,
I've stopped picking up hitch-hikers
in college towns. '
That ws great human-int rest
stuff you had in your column this
morning about Neree Alix, but shed-
ding a tear or two over his sad plight
isn't going to pay his room and board
when he gets out'of the hospital. Can't
something tangible be done for him?
Why in hell do't you try writing
about sports in that column of yours
more often. This series on "Sports
That Are Not Sports"! Ugh!
A SPORTS FAN.
You're certainly ringing the bell
with that series on "Sports That Are
Not Sports"; I've lost money on the
baffle-boards and horses myself.
Tigers Lose Final
Gaine With Sox, 3-2
Charley Gehringer's first home run
of the year was not enough to win for
Detroit yesterday in the final game
of the year's first series with the Chi-
cago White Sox, who won 3-2.
Gehringer's smash cae in the
first inning with Manager Cochrane
on base 'and accounted jor the only
Tiger runs of the game. Johnny
Whitehead, young rookie hurler from
Dallas held the Tigers to three scat-
tered hits after the first inning.
Fred Marberry went to the route
for Detroit and allowed eight hits.
Golfers To Play Three
Rounds Instead Of One
Freshman and Varsity golfers
competing for vacant positions
must turn in by Sunday properly
attested cards for three rounds
instead of one, as was stated in
The Daily yesterday because of
an error in proof correction.
To Win Easily1
Best Ball Foursome And
Individual Play Will Be
Combined In Meet
Eight Wolverine golfers leave AnnI
Arbor by car for East Lansing at 9
a.m. today to engage the Michigan
State Spartans in a dual ,match over
the Lansing Country Club course.i
The meet will be what is termed
a "nassau." There will be both in-
dividual and best ball foursome
matches, but both will be played at
the same time. For example, the
Michigan one and two men will play
together against the State one and
two men, and at the same time theE
Michigan number one man, probably
Johnny Fischer tomorrow, will wage!
an individual battle with Eddie Rior-
dan, probable State number one man.
The Lansing Country Club is not;
a particularly difficult course, but it
is fairly long and the fairways are
The Spartans have never succeeded
in defeating a Michigan golf team.
In the opening meet of the season
last spring Chuck Kocsis led his mates
to an 18-0 victory over State with a 73
to take medal honors for the day.
The Spartans have already dropped
several ,meets this year and indica-
tions are that they will not furnish
serious competition unless several of
their sophomores display a good deal
Each individual match will involve
three points. One to the winner of
the first nine, one to the winner of the
second nine, and one point to the
winner of the match. Thus 24 points
will be involved in the individual
matches and six in the best ball four-
somes, making a total of 30 points.
The Michigan team wilt consist of
Johnny Fischer, Chuck Kocsis, Woody
Malloy, Captain Cal Markham, Dana
Seeley, Larry David, Carrol Sweet, and
The squad will arrive in East Lan-
sing in time for lunch at 11 a.m. Play
will commence at noon and the team
should arrive' in Ann Arbor by 6 p.m.

Here's How He's Going To Get Iowa Points!
By GEORGE J. ANDROS1
With the past swimming season yet7
barely faded into the past, Coach Matt
Mann has already made the predic-l
tion that his 1936 team "is a sure bett
to repeat as Big Ten champions, andi
may come through again in the Na-
Early this season Coach Mann char-
acterized his proteges as the "great-
est swimming team ever assembled;
under one roof," and they bore him
out by winning overwhelming vic-
tories in the Western Conference and]
National Collegiate meets, Ythe two
hardest tests in the intercollegiate!
Win Dual Meets Easily
The Wolverines swept through dual
meets with victories over Michigan
1 State, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio State,
Northwestern, and the Ontario All-
Stars, champions of the British Em-
pire, without effort. The Buckeyes
provided the most opposition, coming
within 20 points of Michigan's total
The Conference meet saw Michigan
way out ahead of Illinois, Ohio State,
and Iowa by virtue of a new scoring
record of 59 points. Co-Captain Tay-
lor Drysdale won the back-stroke
for the third time, breaking his own
record; Sophomore Jack Kasley broke
the 200-yard breast-stroke mark; the
medley trio of Drysdale, Kasley and
Ogden Dalrymple set up a new stand-
ard in the 300-yard event; -and Tex
Robertson came into his own with
victories in the 220- and 440-yard
free-style races, the latter in record
It was in the National Collegiate
Bet' For 1936
Title, Says Mann
meet at Harvard that the Wolverines:
really asserted their superiority in
college swimming circles. Coach
Mann's Varsity tankmen took eightj
out of the 11 possible first places, fail-
ing to win only in the individual free-
style events, where Jack Medica and
Chuck Flachmann divided the hon-
ors. The total of 49 points submerged
Yale and Washington, who tied for
second with 15 counters.
Drysdale also earned his third title
in this meet; Frank Fehsenfeld camet
through with wins in the high and
low-board diving events as Ned Dief-r
endorf, Ben Grady, and Der Johnston
followed behind him to give Michigan1
the almost incredible total of eight out1
of 11 places in the spring-board.
Run Today For
Michigan's Varsity track team will
make its first outdoor appearance at
home tomorrow in an exhibition be-
fore high school track coaches of the
Istate on Ferry Field. The exhibition

picked from the squad will feature the
demonstration event with four men

yards, and one at 660 yards. Willis
Ward, Fred Stiles, Tony Serakos, and
Clayton Brelsford running in that
order will meet Sam Stoller, Harvey
Patton, Stan Birleson and Howard
Other events will include the high
jump, pole vault, high hurdles, and
broad jump. A demonstration of
starting and sprinting will also be in-.

Kipke, Influenza Gone, To
Direct First Of Three
With Coach Harry Kipke's return
to his job after a bout with influ-
enza, the football squad yesterday
was sent through a stiff practice, with
concentration on kickoffs, tackling
and, in the last half of the session, on
plays for the practice game that will
be played at 2 p.m. today in the Sta-
Coach Kipke announced this prob-
able first-team line-up yesterday
afternoon: Captain Renner will start
at quarterback, Everhardus and
Smithers at halves, Sweet at fullback.
Gesquiere and Valpey at ends, Kra-
mer and Schraeder at tackles, Mar-
zoni and Pederson at guards, and
Harry Wright at center. The oppos-
ing team will be picked from the re-,
maining players but definite choices
have not been decided on as yet.
Bill Renner, who has been taking
it easy for the past couple of weeks
with a bad shoulder, is in shape again.
Cedric Sweet, who is starting at full,
has only been out for practice the
last week because of injury to his knee
that he suffered during last season.
Other than these, with the exception
of Dutkowski, a promising looking
freshman who chipped the bone of his
leg, the injuries to the squad have
been comparatively slight.
Today's scrimmage game is the first
one of the year, but from now until
May 4 there will be one played every
Saturday in the Stadium. This will
give three games in which to iron out
the team's defects.

A top-notch performer in five track and field events, Francis Cretz-
meyer, Unversity of Iowa athlete, is expected to be one of the Hawkeyes'
biggest point-getters this year. His hurdling form is notable, the way he
leans forward in the above picture being outstanding.
