Varsity Wins
Over Reserves
By 27-0 Score
Capt. Renner And Cooper
Star In Practice Game
At The Stadium
In the first of a series of three
scrimmages to be held every Satur-
day afternoon in the Stadium a blue-
clad eleven, ostensibly the first team,
yesterday, rode through a white team
for four touchdowns and a 27-0 vic-
Two elevens wore the blue jerseys
and divided the scoring honors, while
a larger group divided time with the
Captain Bill Renner, Bob Cooper,
Steve Remias, and Harry Pillinger
each score once, and George Mar-
zoni and Remias did the kicking af-
ter the touchdowns, the former get-
ting two out of the three attempts
The blues scored their first touch-
down after about half an hour of
scrimmaging. Two previous chances
to score were lost when Cedric Sweet
and Ernie Johnson dropped passes
deep in white territory. Renner
threw a 30-yard pass to George Ges-
quiere who tossed a lateral to Chet
Stabovitz, placing the ball on the
25-yard stripe.
Cooper Makes Second Score
After Cooper had made three yards
at tackle, Renner made it first and
goal to go on the five yard line and
the former scored on his third at-
tempt on a delayed smash off left
With the second blue team taking
charge, Bob Murray blocked a white
kick on the three yard line, and Re-
mias plunged through on his second
.attempt, but failed to kick goal.
The first blue team returned to the
field late in the game and scored soon
after Cooper brought back a punt 40
yards to the white's 20.
Renner Starts At Quarter
Bob Campbell put the blues in posi-
tion for their fourth touchdown when
he was hauled down deep in White
territory after breaking around end
on the second of two 20-yard runs.
The starting blue team had Ghes-
quire and Johnson at end, Bob
Schroeder and Earle Luby at tackle,
Ernie Pederson and Walt Lillie at
guard, and Harry Wright at center.
Captain Renner, Chris Everhardus,
John Smithers and Sweet composed
the backfield. Aug, Marzoni, and Ed
Greenwald replaced Everhardus, Lil-
lie, and Schroeder.
Others who saw action for the
blues were Tom Oyler, Cooper, Stabo-
witz, Murray, Frank Lett, Red Cal-
louette, Fred Olds, Stan Schumann,
Stark Ritchie, Chuck Gray, Fred
Ziem, and Art Leadbetter.

Nine To Open
Home Season
Against Purple

Charley Gehringer, who was sec-
ond best batsmen in the American
League last year, gave notice of an-
.,ther bid for hitting honors when he
drove out four singles in six times at
hat yesterday. He also scored the
tin which tied up the ball game with
the Cleveland Indians, being driven
in by Greenberg's double in the ninth
'nning. Detroit lost in the 14th, 2 to
Coach Ranks
Anderson And
Sie oel First
Exhibition matches played yester-
day at Ferry Field ended the series
of ranking contests for the Varsity
tennis team, which opens against
Ypsilanti Normal next Wednesday.
Captain Seymour Siegel and Bob
Anderson were ceded the top posi-
tions as a result of the week's compe-
, Anderson was the only one to come
through with a' clear slate, recording
tive victories and no defeats. Capt.
Siegel won four of his ranking match-
es, but lost to Anderson 5-7, 1-6 early
in the week.
Miller Sherwood, .a newcomer to
Varsity ranks this year, will play at
the number three position. He de-
feated Johnny Laun in yesterday's
matches, 7-5, 6-0, thus eliminating
Laun from the team.
Howie Kahn, one of the best players
on the squad, is at present ranked
number four. He broke even in the
week's series, with two victories and
as many defeats.
Milton Eskowitz is ranked number
five, Johnny Rodriguez number six,
while Jarvis Dean and Ted Thorward
complete the roster, as numbers seven
and eight respectively.
Dawson Upsets Glenn
Cunningham In Mile
LAWRENCE,,Kans.; April 20. - UP)
- Glenn Cunningham yielded to the
finishing "kick" of his unusually con-l
sistent victim -Glenn Dawson of
Stiatook, Okla. - here today in thel
greatest upset of a thirteenth annual
Kansas Relays carnival. The meet
produced eight new records, two of
them by University of Iowa sprinters,
bettering accepted world standards.

A benefit track meet will be staged
here by the Michigan Varsity in con-
junction with members of the Mich-
igan State Normal squad Tuesday,
i April 30, it 'was announced yesterday
by Coach Charles Hoyt. Proceeds
of the meet will be turned over to
Neree Alix, Michigan's distance star.
who is in a California hospital with
a broken leg suffered last week in the
Michigan-California meet.
Plans for the meet are the result!
yof a spontaneous suggestion on the
part of the Michigan squad to extend
some aid to the popular runner. Al-
though Alix's hospital expenses will
be fully met by the Michigan Athletic
Association, it is understood that he
will be unable to resume the work
which has supported him through his
three college years after release from
the hospital.
The Michigan Normal team, con-
sidered to be one of the strongest
small college teams in the country, will
be represented by several of its out-
standing stars as a gesture toward
Alix. Coach Lloyd Olds has also
promised to have several former Nor-
mal stars here for the meet.
Although the entire Michigan squad
with freshmen, will compete, no points
will be scored.
Tolan To Be Invited
Eddie Tolan, former Michigan star
and double-winner in the 1932 Olym-
pic sprints, who has just won the
world's professional sprint champion-j
ship in Australia, will also be invited
to give an exhibition if he has re-
turned by that date. Tolan is re-
ported to be in the United States on
his return trip and is expected in
Detroit at any time.
A complete track and field pro-
gram has been planned by Coach
Hoyt, but track events have been cutI
down to shorter distances to insure
fine competition and a maximum of
speed in every event.
The track events include a 100-
yard dash, 110-yard high hurdles,
220-yard low hurdles, 350-yard dash,
660-yard run, 1320-yard run, mile and
one-half run, and a 440-yard relay,
each man running 110 yards.
Scheduled in the field are the
standard high jump, broad jump, poleI
vault, javelin, and discus events.
Lowrey To Competej
Among the Normal stars who will
appear here will be Ray Lowrey, con-
sidered one of the outstanding pole
vaulters in the country, and Bill Zep,
Icational long-distance champion.
Lowrey, although not in school, will
participate and renew his rivalry with
Dave Hunn, Michigan's stellar vaulter.
Zepp will be entered in the mile and
one-half against Walter Stone and
Rod Howell of the Michigan Varsity
and Bill Staehle, a freshman who has
already smashed the Yost Field House
records for freshmen in the mile and
two-mile runs.
Other Normal stars include Oliver,
who has done better than 23 feet in
the board jump, Baker in the 350,
Eberhard in the hurdles, and Rut-
kowski, high jumper.
Admission prices have not been de-
termined, but tickets will be put on
sale by the Varsity squad, probably
during the week. Hoyt said.

The papers again say that Illinois
is considering a Varsity hockey team
to play against Michigan, Minneso-
ta and Wisconsin next winter.-
Though the Illini have never had1
a Varsity team in the ice sport, they,
have the most expensive and modern,
artificial ice, indoor rink in the Con-
ference. About 25 teams played in-1
tramural hockey there last winter.
A member of the spring football
squad told us after the scrimmage1
last night that Michigan will lose,
only one game next fall - that to
Ohio State. Even Kipke was well1
satisfied with what the boys showed.i
He thought that the backs, particu-
larly, were doing well. Cooper and;
Everhardus seem to be the boys to
The faithful pun about "pure
feuds" is recalled after the finish of1
the medley relay in yesterday's exhi-
bition by the track team before statel
high school coaches. Howard David-1
son and Clayton Brelsford, running
the final leg, finished in a dead heat,7
immediately to be charged by a ma-
jority of the squad with "fixing" the
It was the second dead-heat in
as many races for Davidson, inci-
dentally, for he finished in a tie
against California.
The Chicago Tribune yesterday
credited Michigan's swimming team
with going football-minded, an-
nouncing a Harry G. Kipke as a mem-
ber of the frosh squad. Coach Matt
Mann denies the allegation, however,
although remarking that a certain
Harry G. Kipke is a pretty good mem-
ber of the faculty water polo teams.
Just for what it's worth, we pass
along this item as possibly reflecting
the strength of Coach Johnstone's
tennis prospects: Ted Thorward, who
was ranked number eight on the
Michigan squad this week, defeated
Leroy Weir, present holder of the
Ohio State outdoor and Cleveland in-
door singles titles, in a match during
spring vacation. ,
Among the coaches present at yes-
terday's track demonstration was Kip
Taylor, former coach at Ann Arbor
High and now' a coach at John Rog-
ers Clark High School in Hammond,
Ind. Taylor, wh9 was cut short of
what promised to be a brilliant ath-
letic career with a back injury in his
first Conference football game for
Michigan, had a successful record at
Ann Arbor and is reported to be do-
ing as well at Hammond.
Ever alert for college material, Kip
remarked yesterday that he of course
was recommending Michigan to his
boys, with Notre Dame second,
''they're not in the conference."

Michigan meets Northwestern in
the Wildcats inaugural Tuesday,
Michigan Normal, Friday and Wis-
consin Saturday. Coach Stewart's
Wildcats are not serious titularcon-
tenders, but with Tom Woods, soph-
omore southpaw from Port Huron,
Mich., in the box, they will be hard
to beat. Northwestern is making a
tour of Michigan, having played Hills-
dale and Michigan State, with a game
scheduled against Western State to-
Stew Merrell and Rog Collins, soph-
omore shortstop and third baseman,
are the backbone of the Purple's hit-
ting attack. Evanston sports scribes
consider Merrell the best infield pros-
pect to enter the Big Ten in some
time. Ray Kimbell, righthander and
Lefty Pederson, outfielder, will be
ready for relief duty.
Johnson Back Again
Michigan Normal's biggest threat
will be presented in Lefty Johnson,
Ypsi's star hurler. Johnson lost two
well-pitched ball games to the Wol-
verines last year, as a sophomore, and
his greatest desire is to even the
Wisconsin should provide the
strongest opposition of the week. Re-
ports from Madison indicate that the
Badgers are well supplied with hit-
ters, Heyer, Carlson, and Wegner be-
ing the most potent sluggers. Coach
Poser is also fortified with a good
fielding club and fair pitching. To-
mek, who tamed the Illinois slug-
gers last Friday, but lost 4 to 0 will
probably hurl for Wisconsin with
Poser, brother of Coach Poser, in re-
With only three days rest, Art
Patchin, who lost a tough 3-2 con-
test to Ohio State Friday, will take
the mound against Northwestern.
Coach Fisher isn't ready to trust the
pitching burden in Conference games
to George Butler or John Gee, his
giant sophomore hurlers, but will start
one of them, probably Butler, against
Berger Larson, who will be the best
pitcher in the Big Ten if he continues
the pace he's set, will take care of
the mound duties against Wisconsin.
In the 20 innings he's hurled so far,
Larson has allowed nine hits, one
earned run and fanned 24.
The qualifying scores for the
spring All-Campus golf tourna-
ment must be in by April 29. Four
rounds will be played, beginning
May 1, and the player with the
low medal total for the four rounds
will be All-Campus golf champion.
