Mound For Michigan As
Brant Hurls For Foe
Varsity Set To Win
Teachers Have Defeated
Four Conference Teams;
Have Lost One Game
One of the strongest baseball teams
in the Middle West appears here this
afternoon against Michigan. Western
State, a college which in the last
six seasons, including the present one,
has won 27 baseball games, lost 5, and
tied one with teams of the Western
Conference for an average of .843,
will play the Wolverines at 4:05 p.m.
at Ferry Field.
The Teachers will be trying for
their seventh straight win over a Con-
ference school this year, having de-
feated Wisconsin, Northwestern, and
Iowa each twice. Coach Judson Hy-
ames' boys downed Wisconsin by
scores of 4-3 and 5-1; Northwestern,
9-6 and 6-5, and Iowa, 10-3 and 6-3.
"Lefty" Gerrit Brandt, who could
have signed up in big league ball last
year, and Lloyd "Dutch" Dietz, a vet-
eran right hander, have been bearing
the brunt of the mound duties for
the Teachers. It is probable that the
former, who defeated Michigan twice
last year, will work today.
Coach Ray Fisher is fed up with
losing games to Western State, and
so is going to send his ace hurler
into the fray, which means none
other than Bergef Larson, the Swed-
ish curve ball specialist. This move
may not mean a thing, however, since
Fisher sent, "Whitey" Wistert, last
yer's pitching star against the
Teachers once, only to see him batted
from the box. Wistert's chief weapon
was a fast ball though, and Lar-
son's is a curve.
The Teachers, according to last
year's batting averages, have a hard-
hitting outfit, five of the regulars,
one a pitcher, possessing better than
.300 averages. Harry Emery, catcher,
batted .438; Jerry Neuman, third,
.435; George Miller, first, .367, and
Frank Millspaugh, short stop, .353.
Brandt led the pack with a .469 per-
The Michigan lineup will prob-
ably remain the same, with Vic Hey-
liger likely to start in right field
again. Fisher has been working on
a recently-detected defect in Hey-
liger's batting form, and hopes to
have him hitting as he did a few
weeks ago.
Yanks Blanked
As Tigers Win
Fast Game, 3-0
Schoolboy Rowe hit his old form
yesterday when he pitched a four-
hit game against the New York Yan-
kees to hold them scoreless and take
his second win in five starts, 3-0.
The Tigers got to Gomez, the Yank
ace, for a total of six hits. Gerald
Walker was the big gun in the fray
being the only Tiger to get more than
one hit, collecting a home run and a
Rowe started badly, walked the first
batter, but after that he settled down
and breezed through the rest of the
nine innings in easy style. He ran
into a little difficulty only in the
sixth. Other results:

And Kocsis
In Open Trials

CINCINNATI, May 13- (P) -
Johnny Fischer, all-time medalist
in the National Amateur, former
intercollegiate golf champion, and
Walker Cup player, failed to quali-
fy today for the national open golf
His 153 for the 36 holes qualifier
had been bettered by five earlier
finishers, putting him definitely
out of the running for the first
time in five years of national com-
DETROIT, May 13 -(P)-Chuck
Kocsis, state amateur champion
and University of Michigan star,
failed today to land among the five
qualifiers in the Detroit district for
the national open.
Kocsis had a card of 74-80-154,1
while Chuck Harbert, Battle CreekI
amateur, landed in fifth place with
153. The five qualifiers from the
Detroit district were Al Watrous,
Walter Hagen, Jimmy Zellers, Jake
Fassezke, and Harbert.
Eleven Teams
In Fraternity
Fraternity softball is drawing to a
close with 11 teams practically assured
of a place in the play-offs for the
championship. The 11 teams, each
of whom has survived a round robin
tournament in a league of five teams,
will participate in a straight elimina-
tion contest among themselves to de-
cide the fraternity softball champion-
The race thus far has been wide'
open and none of the teams seem to
stand out above the rest. The fol-
lowing teams are conceded a chance
for the title.
Phi Alpha Delta is undefeated and
deserves a place among the favorites
by virtue of its victory over Sigma
Nu, champions for the last three
years. Sigma Nu, although posses-
sing a fairly strong team this year
has sorely missed the pitching of1
"Zip" Tessmer.
Alvin Schleifer has pitched Pi
Lambda Phi to three straight victor-
ies. The Pi Lambda Phi batters have
been smashing out a good number
of base hits. Allen Schulman, a
freshman, has been one of the big
guns in the batting attack.
Hamilton Doxey has been doing an
effective job of pitching for Delta Tau
Delta. Bill Borgman,, Dan Hulgrave,
and Bob Henoch, have been batting
in the runs.
Psi Upsilon has three victories asj
against no defeats. Richard Lorch is
the Psi Upsilon hurler, and Archer
King is the team's slugger.
Theta Xi has a good pitcher in
Hugh Weld, a fairly dependable in-
field, and two consistent sluggers in
Bill Mason and "Butch" Abbott. Ab-
bott came to bat in the last inning of
one game with two out, the bases full,
and Theta Xi trailing 9-13, and hit
a homer to tie the score.

Matches Face
Tennis Squad
Michigan Normal, M. S. C.
Western State To Battle
Varsity This Week
Another heavy week's work con-
fronts Michigan's Varsity tennis
team, in a schedule Ahich includes
three competitive matches and one
exhibition series all within five days.
Michigan Normal starts the action
off in their return match, to be played
at Ferry Field at 3 p.m. today.
On Friday afternoon the Maize and
Blue netters will play hosts to the
Michigan State squad, and Saturday
will meet Western States' players
at Ferry Field, both in return engage-
mjents. An all-star team from Cleve-
land will be in town Sunday after-
noon to play the exhibition matches
against Coach Johnstone's proteges.
Normal will bring a squad of six to
oppose the Wolverines in this after-
noon's engagement. Michigan swept
through them to a shutout victory of
9 to 0 in the season's opener three
weeks ago, losing only one set in all
the matches played.-..
Coach Johnstone intimated that
upon his sophomores would rest the
burden of today's offense. The boys
with the most experience and recent
success, Bob Anderson, Howie Kahn,
and Miller Sherwood, will probably
top the rankings for the Ypsi
Johnny Rodriguez, Ted Thorward,
and Jarvis Dean, being rated as ap-
proximately equal, complete the list
of Wolverines who will face the Ypsi
Against this array of Michigan's
less experienced net talent, Michigan
Normal is expected to send the usual
squad, ranked in the order in which
they met the Wolverines earlier in the
The Normal captain, Strate, plays
No. 1 for his team. Sargenti, who
turned out to be the strongest oppo-
nent Ypsi had to offer met Bob An-
derson at the No. 2 position before,
and lost to him, 2-6, 4-6. Arnold and
Dickerson also bowed to Michigan in
straight sets, the latter to Rodriguez
by -a score of 6-1, 6-2, and the former
to Miller Sherwood, 6-2, 6-1.
The doubles set-up found Strate
and Arnold teamed as the No. 1 duo,
Sargenti and Minard playing No. 2,
and Deanand Dickerson as the No. 3
pair. This arrangement will probably
be preserved today.
A.A.U. Drops M.-O. Ice
League; Suspends Teams
The controversy between the Mich-
igan A.A.U. and the Michigan-Ontar-
io Amateur Hockey Lague, involving
a 10 per cent split of Olympia gate
receipts, appeared bound for the
courts Monday.
George Graves, loyal A.A.U. presi-
dent, suspended all six teams of the
M-O League as the A.A.U. board of
governors had ordered him to do.
Graves also was ordered to take fur-
ther action, legal if necessary.




Ohio State, Michigan Duel
Seen In Conference Meet

Both Michigan and Ohio State had
an idea when the baseball season
opened this year that they were about
due to go places in that sport. As
far as team strength was concerned,
each was in a position to expect re-'
sults. The conference schedule, how-
ever, made it likely that they would
indulge in killing each other off, to
the benefit of the other Conference
schools. That is exactly what hap-
With curtailed athletic budgets Big
Ten schools have had to use a num-
ber of devices to keep down travelling
expenses, especially in a sport like
baseball that draws poorly. One is
that of arranging two-game week-
end series or Saturday double-head-
ers. Another is - in the case of one
or two schools - to be content with
only 10 Conference games. The worst,
from the point of view of fairly de-
ciding the title, is that of playing
chiefly with a few schools of one's
own section.
With the strength situated the
way it is this year, the Wolverines
and Buckeyes have suffered most
from having had to play four of their
respective 11 and 12 games against
each other. Each also -had a home-
and-home series with Illinois, and
that didn't help particularly.
Minnesota, which ranks as. some-
thing of a dark horse just now, hav-

ing barely begun its Conference work.
has most of the breaks of the schedule.
It has disposed of two games with
Northwestern and two with Wiscon-
sin, having yet to play four with
Iowa, two with Wisconsin, and two
with Purdue. All of these teams.
while dangerous, are in the lower half
of the standing.
Chicago, it is true, met Illinois in
one contest, and by winning it did a
lot to boost itself into the undisputed
lead. The rest of its program has in-
cluded only Iowa, Purdue, Indiana
and Northwestern to make up a total
of 10 games.,
Illinois. while it has risked its!
championship in two games eachl
with Michigan and Ohio State and
one with Chicago, has had the advan-
tage of being able, because of its cen-
tral position geographically, to play
single games on Tuesday and Satur-
day of each week. This arrangement
has made it possible for' Hale Swan-
son to carry three-quarters of the
pitching burden.
Indiana had the least representa-
tive schedule, meeting only three
teams - Ohio State, Purdue and Chi-
cago. It just happened that two of
those teams are strong enough this
year to make things pretty tough for
the Hoosiers. Michigan meets five
different Big Ten opponents this year.
Illinois and Northwestern, with six
opponents apiece, have the maximum.
Something of the same difficulty
arises in football, but there generally
the rivalries are not aligned on such
a strictly sectional basis, and the dis-
proportionate influence of the sched-
ule is not further weighed by four-
game series that leave nothing to be
desired - or expected.
A 120-yard high hurdle race has
been added to the events of the sec-
ond annual Princeton invitation track
meet to be held in Palmer Stadium in

Ohio State definitely emerged from
the Michigan-Ohio State dual meet
Saturday as the team for the Wol-
verines to beat in the Big Ten track
meet here May 24 and 25. Led by
Jesse Owens, with the sensational
Charlie Beetham and Don Renda, the
Buckeyes will be entered as the team
to maintain the jinx which has per-
sisted in keeping Michigan from scor-
ing double wins, in the indoor and
outdoor meets.
Owens was easily the outstanding
star of the Ferry Field meet, but even
his four wins were almost over-shad-
owed by Beetham, .heralded as an
even greater half-mile prospect than
Chuck Hornbostel of Indiana. Bee-
tham, a 19-year-old sophomore
smoothly bettered Hornbostel's best
first-year performance as he cracked
the Ferry Field record in 1:53.8.
While Owens was proving himself
to a Michigan crowd, Don Lash of
Indiana turned in the best individual
performance of the day as all the
Big Ten teams were engaged in dual
competition. Lash, the sophomore
Conference two-mile champion in-
doors and national cross-country
champion doubled up in the mile
and two-mile to break his own best
marks in both events. Lash won the
mile in 4:17.7 and came back to win
the two-mile in 9:17.7.
Despite his reputation as an er-
ratic performer, Lash's times Satur-
day established him as a favorite in
both events in the Conference meet.
Another outstanding performance
in Saturday's meets was the showing
of Winslow Heg, of Northwestern,
who recorded the best quarter-mile
time of the season in winning at :48.6.
In the sprints, another sensation ap-
peared for Iowa as Andy Dooley, ver-
satile sophomore runner, registered
:09.6 seconds to win the hundred. His
time was 'the same as that recorded
by Owens in the Michigan-Ohio State
Michigan's team yesterday began
pointing directly at the Conference

meet, although it will meet Illinois
at Urbana Saturday. The entire
Wolverine squad which competed Sat-
urday appeared in good shape with
the exception of Clayton Brelsford,
nursing a sprained muscle in his
foot. Although painful, it is not ex-
pected that the injury will keep the
sophomore miler from competing
Saturday. ,
The Wolverines, again without Wil-
lis Ward Saturday, will meet an In-
diana team which is led by Irving
Seeley, indoor pole vault champion,
and Bob Grieve, the sophomore sprint
star who has recently regained his
Tiges Release Luke
Hamlin To Brewers
DETROIT, May 14. -The Tigers
reduced their squad to the 23-player
limit allowed by American League
rules by releasing Luke Hamlin, right-
handed hurler, to Life Milwaukee club
of the American Association, yester-
day afternoon. Hamlin will go out
under an optional agreement which
will permit the Tigers to recall him
should he be needed.
Hamlin has been with the Tigers
the past two seasons and during that
time has had so much bad luck
that he was given the nickname
"Hard Luck Ham."
