Spartans Bunch Their Hits
To Win, 4-1, With Good
Kidston Is Manager
Team Finishes Year With
Record Of 11 Wins And
11 Defeats
Berger Larson was chosen next
year's captain, 14 letters were award-
ed, and the Varsity lost to Michi-
gan State, 4-1, Thursday at East
Lansing as Michigan's baseball sea-
son came to a close.
Larson has been Michigan's lead-
ing pitcher during the 1935 season.
Although he is a junior, this season
was Larson's first on the Wolverine
nine. His home is in Chicago.
Those receiving Varsity letters
are: Russ Oliver, captain this year,
Pontiac; Jack Teitelbaum, Chicago;
Calyton Paulson, Chicago; George
Ford, Detroit; John Regeczi, Muske-
gon Heights; Kim Williams, Kato-
nah, N. Y.; George Rudness, Negau-
nee; Joe Lerner, Detroit; Vic Hey-
liger, Concord, Mass.; John Gee, Syr-
acuse, N.Y.; Milton Meltzer, Brook-
lyn, N. Y.; Art Patchin, Detroit;
Walter Parker, and Larson,
James A. Kidston, La Grange, Ill.,
was chosen manager of the nine next
year. His assistants will be: John
Otte, Wesley Brew, Robert Kennedy,
and Lester Bartley.
Michigan was subdued Thursday
by a sophomore, George Hills. The
defeat gave the Wolverines no bet-
ter than an even break on the sea-
son's play, with 11 wins and 11
A recurrent trouble of the Michi-
gan nine, inability to hit in the
pinches, was largely responsible for
the defeat. State got only five hits
off the two Michigan, hurlers, Lar-
son and Patchin, but bunched them
After getting one run in the fourth,
the Spartans took advantage of a
costly error by Teitelbaum and ral-
lied for three runs, enough to win
the game.
Patchin, who followed Larson on
the mound, held State without a hit
in the last three innings. It was the
final game for Pachin, as well as
for Oliver, Paulson, Teitelbaum,
Ford, and Regeezi. Meltzer and
Parker also graduate this June.
Oliver's letter in baseball is his
ninth Varsity award. In modern
times, only Benny Oosterbaan, Norm
Daniels, and Harry Kipke have won
nine letters. Johnny Regeczi's base-
ball letter is his seventh.

Four Phi Psi's, three Delts and three
Chi Psi's were named on the all-star
fraternity softball team picked yes-
terday by The Michigan Daily in col-
laboration with the managers of the
various teams in the league,
The all-star team is selected each
year after the conclusion of the play-
ing season. This year's team is one
of the strongest in intramural history
and its selection comes as a fitting
climax to a particularly successful
league battle in which Phi Kappa Psi
captured the title from Chi Psi. Delta
Tau Delta and Delta Sigma Delta were
the other semi-finalists.

Andros Leads Pitchers
George Andros was undoubtedly the
best pitcher in the league. He made
the best showing against Phi Kappa
Psi, holing the champions to three
earned runs in a league game. Jack
Palmer was named as the number two
hurler because he became the only
pitcher in the league to turn in a no-
hit, no-run game when he shut out
Phi Lambda Kappa 17-0 in the first
round of the playoffs.
Dick Evans, Palmer's teammate, has
a curve and an upshoot that makes
him practically unbeatable when he
has them working, but he had some
off days during the season and con-
sequently was not picked as one of
the starting pitchers. Gard Slocum
was given the other alternate pitch-
ing berth because he did all the hurl-
ing for the Phi Psi while they were
winning the championship.
Hulgrave At Seond
Strangely enough there seemed to
be a dearth of good second basemen
while there were several outstanding
shortstops, and so it was found neces-
sary to use a shortstop, Dan Hulgrave,
at second base. Hulgrave could prob-
ably handle second base equally as
well as he did his shortstop position
in the Delt lineup, where he was a
brilliant fielder and a consistent hit-
ter. Bill Griffiths at shortstop was
one of the bulwarks in the Phi Psi
defense and was one of the most dan-
gerous hitters in the league.
Dave Barnett at third base and Bill
Borgmann at first, have very good
records at the plate and round out
a hard-hitting infield which should
be air-tight on defense.
Outfield Strong
The outfield was selected mainly
on the basis of fielding ability since
many of the games throughout the
season have been won or lost when a
fielder dropped a long fly. Frank
Rennel in left, John McKee in center,
and Cy Elkes in right, make up an
outfield that would instill confidence
in any pitcher. This trio has also
made more than their share of hits
for their respective teams during the
past season.
Chuck Holkins at short center field
and Louis Westover and Bob Henoch
in the catcher's position, are three
home run hitters who would make
good clean-up men. Westover was
probably the outstanding slugger in
the whole league.
Neree A i x, inured Wolverine
trickstr who broke his lg on the

was hailed as the stepper-into of
Babe Ruth's shoes, was removed from
one game for a pinch hitter - and the
pinch hitter was a pitcher, Red Ruf-

Twice; Need Only

CHICAGO, May 31.- (P) -- Minne-
sota, the darkhorse team, today was
only one game away from the West-
ern Conference baseball champion-
The Gophers, whose schedule ar-
rangement caused them to be over-
looked while Illinois and Chicago set
the early pace, yesterday defeated
Iowa twice, 5 and 3 and 7 to 6, to
all but clinch the title. The victories
gave them seven for the season,
against two defeats, and a victory in
either of their games with Wisconsin
next week would put them safely in
Ohio State assured itself of noth-
ing worse than a tie for second place
by trouncing Indiana twice in another
Memorial Day doubleheader at Co-
lumbus. The Buckeyes won the open-
er, 6 to 2, and took the second 13 to
0, drawing up even .with Illinois and
Chicago at seven victories and three
Wisconsin's game at Northwestern

Olympic Decathlon
With an eye to the 1936Olympic
Games, Willis Ward yesterday began
active preparation for competition in
the decathlon event.
"I'm pretty disappointed with my
college career." Ward says. "There's
only one thing left to do, that's pick
the toughest event and go out to win
His speed and strength will make
him an outstanding favorite to do
that, in the opinion of Ken Doherty,
who was himself an Olympic decath-
