Outfielders Get
First Outdoor


Owner, Manager Watch Yankees Perform

Drill Of Year1
Fisher Still Undecided As
To Make-Up Of Infield;
Squad Is Cut TO 29
Candidates for the outfield berths
on Michigan's 1936 baseball team
drilled on Ferry Field yesterday for
the first time this year, while in Yost
Field House Coach Fisher sent the
rest of the squad through a stiff bunt-
ing and hitting practice.
Indications are that the entire
squad will be outside by the end of
the week. Fisher has made the final
cut, reducing the squad to 29, 16 of
whom will be selected to make the
annual spring southern trip.
Ten pitchers are listed on the
roster and Fisher is hoping that he
finds some good relief men among
them. He has stated that Capt. Ber-
ger Larson is already in good enough
shape now to start a ball game and as
a result Berger is tapering off his
work to be in excellent trim when
the spring trek starts. John Gee is
still slated as the second mounds-
man but with 10 games facing the
squad during spring vacation one
other starter is needed.
Until he takes the men onto the
diamond outside, Fisher will not be
able to state what men will hold
down the infield jobs, but at present
it looks as though at least two off
the positions are decided upon.
Steve Uricek, outstanding man of
last year's freshman team, seems slat-r
ed for the shortstop while Carl Fern-
er is apt to be on third. Fisher is
having trouble in finding a second1
baseman. Either Matt Patanelli or
Joe Lerner is expected to be on first.,
Improvement in hitting by Ferner
and Patanelli over their form of a
year ago will play a large part in
getting these two into the lineup. j
Yesterday Fisher worked on bunt-,
ing for the first time. Lerner, Lar-
son and Jablonski all showed ability
in laying them down but John Gee,
doing the throwing, didn't have much
trouble in picking men off the first
sack. In this drill Vic Heyligerf
caught while Patanelli was on first
and Don Brewer played second.
Annual Sore Arm
Jinx Menaces Two
Michigan Hurlers
Some wise old baseball manager
once observed that, "a pitcher can't]
achieve true greatness until he has ex-
perienced a sore arm." He meant, too
that many pitchers use only their'
arms and not enough of their brains,
until a damaged flipper teaches themI
to conserve that whip as much as;
possible by mixing them up. At any
rate, if the maxim holds water as
far as the Wolverines are concerned,
Coach Ray Fisher might well boast
a couple of potential "greats" on his
present flinging corps.
The two hurlers in question are
Art "Lefty" Settle and Pete Lahti,
a right-hander, both of whom pos-
sessed attributes of stars until some-
thing went wrong with their arms.
Arm Goes Lamel
Settle had plenty o zip on his fast
one when he shoveled them off the1
knoll as a freshman, and he gave
every indication of developing into a
valuable man. In high school, and on
Chicago Sandlots, the southpaw
wrong-sided them down the alley with
considerable success. But lacking1
mound "brains," Lefty threw a fast1
one, then came back with a faster one.
During his sophomore season, his
throwing arm finally went lame.
Something had snapped in the middle
deltoid muscle of his upper arm, and
although Coach Fisher admitted it
was a strange condition, Settle was
unable to bear down without pain, and

his fire ball was as big as a pumpkin.
The lameness persisted in his junior
Increases His Speed
This year Settle started working out
early, increasing his speed gradually.
He now reports that his arm feels
better, although it is still weak from
inactivity. If it comes around as
Settle hopes it will, Coach Fisher's
mound worries may be relieved by
Lahti's condition is similar to the
southpaw's. In Fitchburg, Mass., Pete
dominated the amateur league with
his smoke ball. He pitched hard and
often, never caring about how much
that brand of throwing took out tof
his arm. Then, when he came to
Michigan, his trusty wing balked. He
winced every time he let a fast one
Lahti laid off for two years, and
now is back in the fold, going cau-
tiously about his chores and hoping
that his arm has returned to nor-
malcy. Both boys realize what the
shrewd oldtimer said about sore arms.
A pitcher can't throw hard one after
hard one and expect his arm to do
right by him.

New York A.C.
Downs Varsity
Natators, 43-41
Kasley Sets New World's
Mark In Breast Stroke;
Fick Wins Two Events
NEW YORK, March 24-(P)-Jack
Kpsley of the University of Michigan
broke the world's record for the 200-
yard breast-stroke tonight in a dual
meet with the New York A.C. The
club swiminers won ie meet 43-41.
Kasley, national collegiate and Big
Ten champion, was clocked in 2:24.1,
a second and a half under the listed
world record, held by Jacques Car-
tonnet of France, and more than a
second faster than the unofficial1
mark of 2:25.2 made by Cartonnet
last year.
The Winged Foot team had one of!
its closest calls in 1, years of rivalry
as Michigan won five of the nine
events. The club team, however, took
second place in six events and counted
heavily on capturing the 400-yard
relay. Peter Fick scored a double for
New York in the 50 and 220-yard
free-style events while the veteran
Walter Spence took the 100 and an-
chored the victorious relay team.

Matt Mann Eyes Complications
In Medica-Gilhula Tank Rivalry

The bitter rivalry between Jack
Medica of Washington and Jimmy
Gilhula of Southern California that
has provided most of the fireworks in
the last two National Collegiate swim-
ming meets will be renewed this week-
end in the 1936 championships at
New Haven - but with complica-
tions that will be watched very care-
fully by Coach Matt Mann and Mich-
igan's defending champions.
The two Pacific Coast stars met in
the 220 and 440 in 1934 and in the
1500-meter, the 220 and the 440 last
year, with Medica winning each time

I dent, was five-tenths of a second, also
in new world record time.
This year the rapid rise to national
prominence via the stop-watch route
of sophomore John Macionis of Yale is
threatening to make the last meeting
of Gilhula and Medica under college
colors into a three-way affair.
Macionis' showing with the United
States team in Japan last summer
and his time of 2:10.6 in the 220 this
winter has made him a possibility to
displace either of his two favored
ivals from their accustomed one-two
order in the 220 or 440.

Doherty Gives
Numerals To
33 Freshmen
Ken Doherty, freshman track men-
tor, yesterday announced the names
of the thirty-three freshman cinder-
men who will receive their indoor
numeral awards.
This year's freshman squad is said
to compare favorably with any that
has ever come up at Michigan with
the possible exception of the great
'37 squad which included such stars
as Stoller, Osgood, Stone, Birleson,.
Brelsford, Hunt and Stiles. Figures
show that could a meet be run be-
tween the two teams as freshman, the
'37 team would top the '39 crew by
the smallest of margins. The "thirty-
niners" led by "Big Bill" Watson
would be stronger in the field events
but would have to be content with
second place in most of the running
The Dohertymen downed the first
year nen of Ohio State, Wisconsin,
and Indiana by comfortable margins
for an undefeated indoor season.
The men who will receive awards
are: Bill Watson, Roy Heath, Alan
Smith, Bill Spitalny, Waldo Abbott,
Jesse Stewart, Ross Faulkner, Harvey
Clarke, Ralph Rosenberg, Bill Bu-
chanan, Harold, Davidson, Frank
Wilkinson, Don Duncan, Douglas

I-M Sports
The All-Campus wrestling tourna-
ment opened yesterday with forty-
five entries, most of them members
l of Coach Otto Kelly's freshman

Michigan To Meet
L.S.U. Linkmen
Michigan's Big Ten and National
Collegiate championship golf team
has scheduled the powerful Louisiana
State squad for a dual meet to be
iplayed over the University course May
8, Coach Ray Courtright announced
The Louisiana State quartet is a
powerful crew that should provide
Capt. Chuck Kcesis and his Varsity
mates plenty of opposition. The star
of the visitors is Fred Haas, runner-
up for the individual Collegiate cham-
pionship last year and winner of the
Western Junior title.
Haas is ably seconded by Paul Les-
lie, southern intercollegiate champion,
Wright Adams and Lawrence Lacarde.
The Louisiana golfers will meet
Michigan while on a tour of the
midwest that will see them clash also
with Notre Dame, Michigan State
and the University of Detroit.
While the Michigan lineup is still
a matter of conjecture, it appears
certain that Capt. Kocsis will be at
number-one position and Woody Mal-
y at number two. Al Saunders,Al
Karpinski and Larry David are theI
leading contenders for the remaining
two starting posts.
All football players, varsity and
freshmen, report for first outdoor
practice Wednesday afternoon at
4 p.m. at Ferry Field.
