Michigan Nine Strongest
Since Team That Won
Title In 1928
With their eyes focused on a pos-
sible 1936 Big Ten baseball cham-
pionship, Michigan's hard hitting
nine will face Wisconsin in the cur-
tain raiser of the local season at 2:30
p.m. today at Ferry Field.
There was a decidedly cheering
note in the Wolverines' final drill of#
the week yesterday when Georgel
Rudness, injured in the Maryland
game last Saturday, reported in uni-
form and took his turn at the plate.
Coach Ray Fisher stated that Rud-
ness would probable be in condition
to play today and thus put the Mich-
igan Club at full strength for the
Badger tilt.
Seek Second Win
Michigan has one Conference win
to its credit so far, a 12-9 triumph
over Ohio State, and the game to-
day which is expected to attract a
large opening day crowd will be the
first since the highly successful
southern trip. A defeat at the hands
of the Badgers would hurt Michigan's
pennant chances to a great extent,
the league leading Illini having add-
ed another win to their record yes-
terday at Northwestern.
Captain Berger Larson will be en-
trusted with the pitching job this
afternoon and will probably be faced
by O'Brien, Wisconsin star. To date
Larson has \won two games and lost
one, the defeat coming at Richmond
in five innings. He pitched the Con-
ference opener at Ohio State and so
far this season has averaged better
than a strikeout per inning.
Badgers' First
The game will be the first Confer-
ence combat for the Badgers and will
be the final tilt of their eight game
Mid-Western excursion. Thursday
they defeated the best team Michigan
State has had in years, 7-5. Yester-
day they lost to the same club by an
iderltical score.
Fisher will send a team into the
game that in its first nine games has
shown more power than any Michi-
gan club since the Big Ten champions
of 1928. The team batting average
is .338. In case Rudness is not able
to start, Herm Fishman will be in
right field and Vic Heyliger will be
shifted over to center. Merle Krem-
er will be in left in any case.
Three sophomores will be in Mich-

Along with his team mate, Frank
Barnard, Jack Kasley was elected
co-captain of the 1936-37 swim-

Michigan Union last night. Kasley
is at present the outstanding breast-
stroker in the country, holding
three out of five World's records.
Varsity Begins

At Home Today
Michigan State Furnishes
Competition For Opening
Of Title Defense
Michigan's Varsity golf team opens
a campaign calculated to lead to a
third consecutive National Collegiate
championship when the Wolverines
meet Michigan State in the first dual
meet of the season at 12:30 p.m. to-
day at the University Course.
Missing from the squad that gave
Michigan its second National title in
a row last June will be Johnny
Fischer, Dana Seeley and Cal Mark-
ham. Only the loss of Fischer, re-
cently picked as a member of the
American Walker Cup team for the
second time, appears to make much
difference in the strength of Coach
Ray Courtright's team.
Led by Captain Chuck Kocsis, one
of the country's best known linksmen,
and Woody Malloy, co-medalist with
Kocsis in the Collegiate meet last
summer, the Wolverine team will be
composed of Alan Saunders and Lar-
ry David, veterans, and Al Karpinski,
Bill Barclay and Russ Strickland,
sophomores. These men will play
in the order named.
Two more men to complete the
freak nine-man team that will face
the Spartans will be picked just be-
fore the uiatch today from a list of
prospects including Harrison Wil-
liams, Bill Griffiths, Jack Mooney,
Emil Gallas and Dick Burt.
The Spartan team is an indefinite
quantity and has not caused Michi-
gan much trouble in the past, but the
amount of opposition the Green and
White will furnish this afternoon can
not be determined.

KALAMAZOO, Mich., April 24. -
Western State's tennis team, led by
Carl Fischer, took one doubles apd
three singles matches today to defeat
the Michigan netters, 4-2. Fischer
defeated Capt. Howie Kahn in a hard
fought three set battle, 5-7. 6-1, 6-1.
Miller Sherwood was the only mem-
ber of the Wolverine team to come
through with a singles victory, beat-
ing Klein of Western State, 6-4, 6-4,
in the No. 3 match. Jarvis Dean
and Johnny Rodriguez teamed up to
whip Chandler and Vandenberg, 6-3,
6-2, for the other Michigan victory.
Ted Thorward and Smith ,the Hill-
toppers No. 4 man, hooked up in a
torrid three set match in which Thor-
ward came back to take the second
set, 6-1; but was unable to cope with
Smith's fine brand of tennis in the
third and final set which Smith won,

If it's true that base hits make the
ball player Carl Ferner, Michigan's
senior third baseman, is well along
the road toward being one of the
Mid-West's oustanding collegiate in-
fielders of 1936.
He has started at the hot corner in
all of the nine games played by the
Wolverines so far this season and has
yet to go hitless in -_ -_
a game. In the ab-
breviated Rich-
mond battle last
week he got the
only Michigan hit.
To date he has
-racked out 18 base
hits in 36 official
times at the plate,
possessing a bat-
'.ing average far
above that of any
ordinary c o 11 e g e
ball player and to-
day will attempt to FERNER
fatten the average at the expense of
Wisconsin. He also leads the club in
base stealing with nine pilfered sacks
to his credit so far.
Biggest Day
Carl's biggest day in the games al-
ready played came at the University
of Virginia where the Wolverines
were expected by the Southern ex-
perts to be beaten handily by Bob
Abbott, Virginia right hander. The
only comment Abbott had to make
when knocked out of the box in the
fourth inning was to ask, "How can
a guy pitch to a club like that? They
hit everything I threw up there."
Now at
712 E. Washington Ph. 9793

Ferner had led the assault on the
Cavalier mondsman with base'rhits in
his first two times up.
This is Ferner's first year as a
regular. He came to Michigan after
starring in Southwestern Michigan
athletic circles for Sturgis high school
in basketball and baseball. He was
ineligible the spring of his sophomore
year and last year was kept on the
bench in favor of George Ford who
held down the hot corner.
Developed Hitting
When he reported for practice in
the Field House this winter Fisher
immediately started developing Fer-
ner's hitting. Long hours were spent
with him in the batting cages, and
by the time the squad went outside
for its first drill he was hitting every-
thing the pitchers were offering. He
opened the season in a great way,
collecting three hits in three attempts
at Ohio Wesleyan.
His most sparkling fielding play so
far came in the seventh inning of
the game at William and Mary when,
with a man on third, one out and
Michigan leading 2 to 1, the hitter
bunted along the third base line, at-
tempting the time worn squeeze play
to score the tying run. Ferner came
in like a bolt, made a perfect pick up
and threw to Jablonski for an easy
out. After this the game was safe.

Show Up Well
SIn Grid Drill
Working out in the stadium for
the first time this spring, the Michi-
gan Varsity gridders carried on a
two-hour scrimmage and displayed
some mighty fine offensive drives.
Two Blue squads ran up a total of
eight touchdowns while holding their
White opponents to a single score.
Little Chuck Gray and Bob Curran
each carried the ball over the last
white line three times while Stark
Ritchie and Joe Ellis tallied the other
two touchdowns. Gray's 45-yard run
off tackle was the longest and also
the finest run of the day.
On par with the excellent running
game was the passing and punting
shown by the two squads. Ritchie
completed five out of six forwards, all
of them good fo., long gains, and the
White's lone tally came from a pass,
Pietrowski to Valek.
Phillips and Manella did the punt-
ing during most of the game and av-
eraged well over forty yards. One
of the former's boots travelled seventy
yards over the head of the safety man
and into the end zone.
