THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Varsity Net Team Defeats Michigan Normal In Open
In Fast Games
Michigan Wins All But
One Set As Ypsi Team
Is eld At Standstill
opened the tennis season in a blaze
of glory by completely overwhelming
the Michigan Normal netters by the
drastic score of 9 to 0 on the Ypsi-
lanti courts yesterday afternoon.
All but one match went to the vic-
tors in straight sets. One doubles set
in the Kahn-Sherwood vs. Sargenti-
Minard match was lost to the Ypsi
netmen when a temporary weakening
gave the second set to them, 2-6. The
Wolverines accounted for victories in
eighteenth other sets.
Capt. Seymour Siegel trounced the
Normal captain, Strate, by the decisive
score of 6-0, 6-1 He showed a cer-
tain nervousness, and was not playing
up to top form at any time during
the match, despite the contradictory
verdict of the score.
Bob Anderson, playing his first Var-
sity match for the Wolverines, de-
feated Sargenti, the best competition
Ypsi had to offer, in a. hard contest
which ended with Anderson on the
right end of a 6-2, 6-4 score. The
victory was not as overwhelming as
the the score seems to indicate, for it
was the toughest struggle of the after-
Miller Sherwood was another star in
his Varsity debut. In a match with
Arnold the Wolverine sophomore de-
feated his opponent 6-2, 6-1. Howie
Kahn, the only veteran on the Mich-
igan roster besides Capt. Siegel, de-
feated Minard of Michigan Normal,
Johnny Rodriguez and Jarvis Dean
completed the roll of the victors, dis-
posing handily of their singles oppo-
nents. Rodriguez took Dickerson into
camp with a 6-1, 6-2 score, while Dean
disposed of Schultz to the tune of
Doubles Wins Harder
The doubles matches were not such
complete routs for the hosts, although
theye were able to garner but a
single set victory. Captain Siegel and
Anderson, playing as Michigan's No. 1
duo, set back a team composed of
Strate and Arnold, 6-0, 8-6.
Rodriguez and Dean teamed to-
gether to squash Dickerson and
Schultz completely, with a score of
6-0, 6-0. Sherwood and Kahn de-
feated Sargenti and Minard, 6-3, 2-6,
Coach John Johnstone was only
partly satisfied with the showing of
his protegees, and cites thehdoubles
situation as that where . the chief
weakness lies. It was a curtain-rais-
ing series for the Ypsi netters as well

HERE is an actual copy of a letter
Harry Kipke received yesterday:
Are you and your school interested
in athletic scholarships? If so, I
wish to apply for one. I am a student
at Baghdad Central (not the real
name) high school where I play foot-
ball and baseball. I am a member of
the boxing team and show promise
as a wrestler and shot-putter on the
track team. Football is, of course, my
specialty. I play left tackle on de-
fense and running guard on offense.
I stand 6 feet 1% inches and
weigh 204 pounds.
I was selected by the Baghdad
Tribune for two of their all-star
teams. I hope you will investigate
this. I have another year of public
school football and I am taking this
opportunity to familiarize myself with
you with the hope of obtaining a
scholarship by the time I graduate
from high school.
If you have any scouts or football
alumni in the vicinity of Baghdad
send them up to watch Central and
me. We are worth the trouble. That's
an honest opinion.
I hope to be near Ann Arbor on an
automobile trip to California this
summer, and if you will be so kind as
to extend an invitation to partake
of a scrimmage against your Wolver-
ines, I will be delighted. Let me know
when to come if, of course, it is con-
venient to you.
(another phoney, of course)
Kipke didn't say how many such
letters he gets every year, but inti-
mated that this one wasn't the first,
by any means. He did say that he
didn't dare invite Joe to scrimmage
against the Varsity, "because he
might win, and we haven't any ath-
Joe's offer to scrimmage against the
Varsity is reminiscent of the first days
of fall practice'three years ago when
Harry Wright, then a freshman, asked
the coach for a chance to scrimmage
against the regulars. On the first
play he was in, Jack Heston and Stan
Fay hit him in the midriff and carried
him up into the stands. Wonder if
Harry remembers that?
Though Kipke refused to disclose
Joe Doakes' real name, there are two
local scribes, including your writer,
who saw the name scrawled in purple
ink at the end of the remarkable docu-
ment reproduced here. We'll be look-
ing, a few years hence, for the name
to turn up in the sporting sheets
when Joe is playing "tackle on de-
fense and running guard on offense"
for Ohio State, Illinois, Southern Cal.,
Pittsburgh - or Michigan.
Tiger Hurlers Fail
As SoxWinJ,10To 4
CHICAGO, April 24. - Johnny
Whitehead held the ailing Detroit
Tigers to three hits here today as the
White Sox won the second game of
the series, 10 to 4.
Firpo Marberry was relieved by
Tommy Bridges in the seventh, and
Tommy walked back to the dugout
after being touched for two home
runs and a single and failing to get
a man out.
Zeke Bonura led the assault on the
three Tigers pitchers with two home
runs and a single, while Rogell hit a
homer for Detroit in the second with
Hank Greenberg on base.
In the last seven innings the Tig-
ers were able to hit only one ball
out of the infield and that was an
easy fly to Simmons in the ninth by
New York-Boston, rain.

IRISH DRAW WELL
Despite the fact that the 1934-35
Notre Dame basketball team had the
poorest record in 10 years, it drew
109,400 persons, the largest in the
school's history. The team won 13
games of 22.

Tickets for the Alix Benefit Track
Meet to be held April 30 on Ferry
Field were put on sale yesterday as
the Varsity track squad, which is
staging the event, organized the ticket
sales campaign. All members of the,
Varsity and freshman track squads
were given tickets, which will sell at
25 cents, and they will canvass fra-
ternity and sorority houses, dormi-
tories, and organize a campus drive.
A crowd of at least 1,200 was set as
the goal by Coach Chuck Hoyt, and
no passes are to be accepted.
Coach Hoyt also announced yes-
terday that entries for the special
events will be completed today, both
for the Michigan entries and for
Michigan Normal entries, who were
cooperating with the Wolverines as
a gesture to Neree Alix, the Michigan
star, whose leg was broken while
competing in a meet two weeks ago
Hoyt also said that there was every
possibility that Eddie Tolan, sprint
champion of the world both as ama-
teur and professional,. would be able
to give a dash exhibition. Hoyt has
contacted Tolan's manager who
promised that the former Michigan
star would appear if he had returned
from Australia, where he recently
won the world's professional title in
Kipke Looks For
New Kicking Star
Coach Harry Kipke spent the better
part of yesterday afternoon in trying
'to find out just how powerful a wea-
pon the punt will be in Michigan's
football attack and defense next sea-
son. Cedric Sweet and Stark Ritchie
were the two backs whom Kipke seems
to be depending on, and both of them
were kept busy.
Sweet had a little better of the duel
but neither man was up to the stand-
ard set by John Regeczi in the last
three years. Chuck Brandman, Bill
Barclay and Bob Cooper were doing
the receiving, and John Smithers and
Bob Campbell provided the blocking
for the ball-carriers.
Ernie Johnson and George Ghes-
quire alternated at ends with Mike
Foudy and Joe Florschnand did a good
job in stopping the hard-running re-
ceivers. Earlier in the afternoon
Kipke divided the squad into backs
and linemen and sent them through
a workout in blocking.
While part of the team was going
through the punting drill, Coach Wal-
ly Weber sent the rest through a
scrimmage in another part of the

_tig htens Race
Ohio State managed to tighten up
the Big Ten baseball race by winning
the second of a two game series from
Illinois, the previously undefeated
leaders, last Tuesday at Columbus by
the score of 12-6.
Ronnie Peters, the Buckeyes' lead-
ing hurler, outlasted three Illini
pitchers. Prosenjak, the Scarlet and
Gray right fielder, led the batters,
getting four hits, including a double,
triple, and home run.
Hoosiers '16ke Lead
Indiana gained the Conference lead
by taking two games from Purdue by
the scores of 9-4 and 7-1. Both
games. were marked by spectacular,
fielding on the part of the Hoosiers.
A five-run rally in the ninth in-
ning after a disputed decision at
first base which would have retired
the side scoreless, gave Indiana the
first game of the aeries. In the sec-
ond tilt, Ed Hosler limited the Boil-
ermakers to six hits and made three
singles himself to emerge as the star
of the contest.
Illini Win Two
After beating Ohio State in its
opening game, Illinois captured a
two game series from Wisconsin at
Madison last Friday and Saturday.
Hale Swanson, sophomore star, shut
out the Badgers with only six hits in
the opener to win 4-0.
Howie Berg hurled the second game,j
and although he was touched for 11
hits, the Illini sluggers led by Mur-
ray Franklin pounded out enough
runs to give the Orange and Blue
a 10-5 victory.

Avon Artz followed Tompk ns, play-
ing center on the ice team and taking
over right field for Coach Ray Fish-
er the next three years. He batted
.400 his first two years, made All-
American in his second season, but
slumped to the status of a .300 hit-
ter in his senior year when he cap-
tained the nine.
Heyliger took over Artz' place at
center on the hockey team this year
with added dexterity, and now ap-
pears to be on the way toward filling
his shoes in right field. He will have
to go some, however, if he improves
on Artz' three year record as a ball
Private Spear Offered
To Javelin Candidates
"We ,haven't had an outstanding
javelin thrower since the days of Phil
Northrup, and that's the reason I'm
offering a free spear to any Michigan
man with a strong arm who is willing
to come down to Ferry Field and work
out in this event every afternoon,"
Coach Ken Doherty said yesterday in
announcing his campaign to uncover
all hidden javelin tossing geniuses
on the campus, if any.
Four years ago the high schools
of Michigan dropped the javelin as an
event in track, with several other
states following suit. The result of
this action has been felt here at
Michigan, nothing like a point-winner
in the event having appeared on the
horizon for some time.
Doherty doesn't care whether the
candidates are freshmen or seniors.
He wants to see what he can see.
I Yearling Baseball Team
To Meet Reserve Nine
The freshman baseball squad, under
the tutelage of Bennie Oosterbaan
appears to be rounding into shape
for its series of games with the Phys
Eds in addition to the games to be
played with the reserve Varsity team
on the days that the Varsity plays
on foreign fields.
The first game with the Reserves
! will no doubt be played next Tuesday
when the Varsity invades Hillsdale,
Coach Oosterbaan stated last night.
Coach Oosterbaan posted his first
cut Tuesday, at which time 37 men
were dropped from the squad. The
present squad of about 40 men will
C be sliced to about 18 who will com-
c prise the regular squad for the re-
mainder of the season. In addition
to those out now several promising
candidates are expected to report as
soon as spring football practice is
