THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Third Place In
Varsity Sophomore Wins
Way To Final Bracket;
Beaten Only By Two
Earl Thomas, Michigan's star soph-
omore grappler, returned here last
night from the National Collegiate
meet held at Lexington, Va., last
week-end the holder of the position
of the country's third best college
wrestler in the 134-pound class.
Thomas took the third place award
by gaining the final bracket of four
in his class, and then losing to Wayne
Martin of Oklahoma A. and M., the
eventual winner, and to Dick Brandt
of Cornell College of Iowa. The
Michigan wrestler defeated Bob Lar-
son of Iowa, Big Ten champion and
conqueror of Thomas in the Confer-
ence finals, who was the fourth man
in the championship bracket.
By virtue of pinning all of his four
opponents in the final round, Martin
was presented with the coaches' and
officials' award for the most out-
standing performance in the meet. In
1934 the Sooner star won the 135-
pound title, while in 1935 he annexed
the 145-pound crown.
The University of Oklahoma,
coached by Paul Keen, brother of
Cliff Keen, Wolverine mentor, won
the team championship by beating
Oklahoma A. and M., champions for
the past five years. Walter Jacobs,
Michigan State's mat captain, gained
the 145-pound title.
Although beaten in the semi-finals,
Brandt annexed second place title
honors next to Martin by virtue of
his previous victory over Thomas.
However, all four wrestlers, Martin,
Brandt, Thomas and Larson, quali-
fled for the Olympic tryouts to be
held April 18 and 19.
The tournament was conducted in
round-robin fashion with three points
registered against the contestant if
he were thrown and one point if he
were decisioned. A total of five points
eliminated the wrestler.

Five Yearling Batterymen Show
Promise In Pre-Season Drilli
By HERBERT LEV
Bennie Oosterbaan, freshman base-
ball coach will have to wait until
after spring vacation to get a defi-'
nite line on his prospects for the
season, as infield and outfield can-
didates are not due to i'eport until'
At the present Oosterbaan is work-
ing with a small but impressive squad
of battery men. Among his pitchers
he has two who show exceptional
promise, Danny Smick of Hazel Park
and Elmer Gedeon of Cleveland, both
Possess Ideal Builds
Both boys are ideally built for
hurlers, standing well over the six
foot mark in height, and possessing
unusually large pairs of hands. The
two promise to rank among the out-
standing all-around athletes in the
school, both being candidates for
end positions on next fall's grid team,
while Smick is also a star basketball
Another all-around freshman star
who is making good in baseball is Leo
Beebe of Dearborn, who ranks as one
of three outstanding catching pros-
pects. Tom Draper and Jimmy Bar-
nett are the other backstops who
may go far in baseball.
Clark Shows Promise
Smick and Gedeon are by no means
the only pitchers who have shown
good form. Francis Clark, also a
football player is an excellent pros-
pect as are Stoddard Spader, Al Du
Bois, Ed McKenzie and Phil Finkle-
Oosterbaan has not seen any of his
infield or outfield candidates as yet,
but admits that he is expecting great
things from Walter Peckinpaugh, son
of Roger Peckinpaugh, former major
league player and manager. Walt,
tvho is a shortstop, hopes to follow
in the footsteps of his illustrious
dad. His past experience speaks well
for him, he having topped off a bril-
liant high school career last summer
with' a year's experience on one of
Cleveland's fastest amateur ball
According- to Oosterbaan, the two
outstanding players to graduate from
the freshman ranks during recent
years have been George Ford and
Steve Uricek, both infielders. Ford
terminated a brilliant career as Mich-
igan's third baseman last season and
Uricek is expected to fill his shoes
during the coming campaign. Peck-
inpaugh bids well to rank on par with
both of these.
