Fisher Pitches
As Nine Shows
Batting Power
Kremer Exhibits Definite
Ability At Plate; Larson
In Good Condition
It was pitcher Ray Fisher, rather
than coach, who sent the Michigan
baseball squad through a long Field
House hitting drill yesterday, and
when the former major league ace
had finished hurling to various of his
men in the batting cage he was con-
fident that the Wolverine offensive
would be strong enough next week to
down a number of the southern
Fisher had planned to send his
charges through an intra-squad game
before a sudden blizzard hit Ferry
Field and made playing outside im-
possible. If conditions are not fa-
vorable for outdoor work this after-
noon, the squad will head south Fri-
day with only five days of outdoor
drill behind them.
Shifted To Outfield
Merle Kremer's ability at the plate
was particularly praised by Fisher
yesterday, for the Ohio southpaw
drove Fisher's own pitches back at
him with a force that spoke loudly
of future base hits.
Kremer reported in the winter as a.
hurler and worked in that capacity
until his arm went bad. Shifted to
the outfield when the team went out-
side in March, he performed ably in
the garden and will be in left field in
the season's opener Friday. His hit-
ting has shown a steady improve-
ment all through the training season,
and Fisher feels that if it continues
Kremer will be one of his best hit-
Has The Power
He hits from the left side of the
plate and puts a tremendous amount
of power in his swings. To date his
main and only weakness has been on
inside pitches around the knees.

Capt. Berger Larson spent a long
time in the cage yesterday, but at
no 'time bore down. He seems in per-
fect shape to start Friday's game at
Ohio Wesleyan. Coach Fisher is ex-
pected to make the announcement
today as to what men will make up1
the squad on the spring training
jaunt. Eight pre-conference games
are scheduled, and the trip will wind
up at Columbus April 20 and 21 where
Ohio State will be faced in the first
two Big Ten games.
I-ym Sports
A new departure in All-Campus
tennis will be tried this spring, ac-
cording to I.M. officials. A tourna-
ment entrance fee of 10 cents will be
charged, and the funds so collected
will go to buy medals for the winner
and runner-up in each class. If
enough entries are received under
this new plan, it will be possible to
provide medals for the other two
Each contestant must provide three
new balls, and the winner of each
match will keep the three unused
balls, while those used in that match
will go to the loser. In addition,
three new balls will be given to each
winner, as has been the policy in
previous years. Entries in this event
will have to be made personally, at
the Intramural Sports Building.
Championships in the faculty divi-
sion of the campus handball tourna-
ment will be decided this week with
the playing of the final two rounds.

On Monday Earnest M. Espelie and
Julius White meet in the semi-finals
of one bracket of the singles tourna-
ment while Alexander H. Smith and
C. D. Jones will fight it out for the
privilege of play in the finals in the
other bracket.
Because of a recent petition by 10
fraternities for an interfraternity
golf tournament, the Intramural De-
partment has sent out questionnaires
to all of the houses on campus to find
out if such a tournament would draw
enough entries to make it worthwhile.
The entries are due today, and if
enough houses show interest the play
will be held on Saturday, May 16.
The tournament will be conducted by
the match play system with each team
consisting of four men.
Entries will close this week for
softball teams and for fraternity
horseshoe and tennis squads. Play
will start immediately after spring va-
cation. All-campus singles entries for
tennis are due in on April 16 with
play beginning April 22, directly after

'The HOT


L----- By BILL REED '

AFTER about one month of play
the American Olympic basket-
ball team was selected Sunday which
will play in the first Olympic tourna-
ment in Berlin this summer. Exactly
one player, enrolled in college at the
present time and competing on a col-
legiate team, was named as a mem-
ber of the 13-man squad and he,
Ralph Bishop of the University of
Washington, was chosen as the thir-
teenth man.
Playing before a crowd of 5,000
"howling" fans the Universal Pic-
tures quintet of Hollywood, Cal., won
the finals of the tournament defeat-
ing the Globe Oil Refining Company
team of McPherson, Kan., by a one-
point margin Sunday night at Madi-
son Square Gardens in New York.
Both of the finalists were amateur
teams, or perhaps better described
as semi-pro's.
The members of the two win-
ning squads have all played bas-
ketball many years, most of them
for a number of years since their
graduation from college. In the
opinion of most experts they

Gloves To Fifteen Men;
Service Named Best
Fifteen freshman pugilists were!

work in their sport, and thus. accord-
ing to Coach Verne Larson became
the first group of freshmen in the
history of boxing at this university
to receive awards for yearling gloveI
The select group was chosen by'
Coach Larson from a squad of nearly4
forty candidates, who worked out
under him at various times during
the year. The boys were chosen on
the basis of ability, interest, and dili-
gence displayed by them.

Gridders, Reduced By
Cut, End Drills Today
This afternoon's scheduled grid
scrimmage will conclude the first
chapter of Spring football prac-
tice when Coach Harry Kipke
sends his squad-reduced by 15-18
men as a result of the first spring
cut in more than six years-
through their final workout be-
fore vacation.
The men cut from the roster
include mostly freshmen with the
exception of several sophomores
and juniors who failed to make
the squad last fall.
Today's practice will conclude
football training until April 20
when an intensive Spring prac-
tice program will begin. Wheth-
er or not Kipke would make fur-
ther cuts in the squad which now
numbers approximately 75 men,
could not be definitely ascertained,
but the move appeared to em-
phasize that he intends to brook
loafing or indifferent play on the
part of no one.
