Wolverines Are Scheduled
To Perform Here Friday
And Saturday
Sek Eighth Victory
Gee And Fishman Are Still
Slated To Hurl Against
Hurons At Ypsilanti
Because yesterday's continued rain
caused the Michigan Normal game
to be postponed for the second time
' this week, it now being scheduled
for this afternoon; Michigan's base-
ball team is faced with the task of
playing seven games in the next 10
days. Five of the games will be here.
Coach Fisher will stick to his orig-
inal plan of using John Gee and Herm
Fishman against Normal today, as-
suming that the game can be played
between showers. Tomorrow when the
scene of battle is shifted from the
Ypsilanti diamond to Ferry Field the
Hurons will probably be opposed by
a pair of Wolverine right handers,
Ed Andronik and Pete Lahti.
After Eighth Win
The Wolverines will still be after,
their eighth win of the year when they
go up against, the Hurons this after-
rioon and should be able to add it
to their record without trouble. An-
dronik has pitched in two games this
year, the, first against Roanoke and
then in the Maryland slugfest. Lahti
has not yet appeared in the Mich-
igan lineup, but Fisher expects the
sophomore to turn in a good perform-
ance when he does work.

Star Distance Man

For the rest of the team, the two
starts against Normal will be good
drills in preparation for Saturday's
classic with Illinois when Michigan's
stock will either soar or take a de-
cided drop, depending upon the out-
come of this all-important affair.
The Illini added another win over
Northwestern Tuesday, their sixth
Conference victory in six starts.
Illini Tilt Is Real Test
As the result of their terrific pace
the Illini are strong favorites to
take at least a share of the 1936
Big Ten crown. Michigan fans will
find out Saturday whether Wally
Roettger's club is really on the road
to the title, or whether Ray Fisher's
aggregation is the team to be reck-
oned with in the race for the crown.
Next Tuesday the Wolverines will
travel to Hillsdale to meet a strong
college club there. The two south-
paws on the Big Three of the mound
staff, Gee and Fishman, will divide
that, game between them as both
will be expected to work a full game
the following week-end.
May 8, Ohio State will oppose Mich-
igan on Ferry Field in the first of a
three-game series. Ronnie Peters
will probably be the Buckeye pitcher
with Berger Larson throwing them
for the Wolverines. May 9 will be
bargain day for the fans for a double-
header is scheduled that afternoon.
The Ohio pitchers for that day will,
not be known until next week, but,
it will undoubtedly be Gee and Fish-
man twirling for Michigan.
Get Plenty of Work
With games coming as fast as they
are during the next week the Fisher
charges will get a chance to sharpen
their hitting eyes against good hur-
ling. At the same time his mounds-
men will get some much-needed work.
Headed by Capt. Larson, the Big
Three of the hurling corps so far have
accounted for all seven Michigan
wins. Larson has taken three out of
four and Gee and Fishman two games
each. All appear adept at throwing
the ball past the opposing hitters, for
together they have chalked up 64
strikeouts in 64 innings on the hill.
They have also restricted the foe
to but 40 hits in that time. On the
basis of these facts it can be judged
that no team the Wolverines meet will
have an easy time in winning.;
Kipke Sends Team
Thiro ugh Long Drill
In preparation for the scrimmage
scheduled for tomorrow afternoon in
the stadium, Coach Harry Kipke sent
his charges through a two-hour of-
fensive drill yesterday. Most of the
time was spent in working out a new
set of running plays.
Stark Ritchie broke through the
defensive eleven several times for long
gains behind the excellent blocking
of his mates, as did Ed Phillips, Cra-
mon Stanton and Bob Curran.
If the showing of the backs in the
past is any indication of what they

Frosh Golfers
Start Matches
For Numerals
The first of weekly 18-hole medal
play matches to be held during thef
month of May to determine the win-
ners of freshmen golf numerals will
be staged Saturday morning over the
University Golf Course.
Two foursomes have already been
organized from this week's freshman
squad of eight men and will tee off at
8:30 and 8:40 a.m. Saturday.
The first foursome is composed of
Novak, McCarren, Yearnd and Kreu-
ger. The second quartet is made up
of Zimmerman, Hoagland, Griffin
and Evans.
Other freshmen scholastically eli-
gible who wish to try for places on
the squad and also men who entered
the University as upper-class trans-
fer students and who are not yet eli-
gible for Varsity competition will be
set off in foursomes after numbers
one and two.
The first two foursomes of each
week will be made up of the eight-
man squad of that week which has
free playing privileges. The squad
changes each week in accordance
with attested scores for three 18-hole
rounds played during the week andl
reported to the club house.I

Hoyt Selects
30-Man Squad
For Ohio Meet
Wolverines Face Real Test
In Season's Opener Held
At Columbus
Coach Charlie Hoyt yesterday
named a track squad of 30 men to
make the trip to Columbus Friday
where the Wolverines will pick up
the rivalry started in the Penn Relays
last week when the Buckeyes play
host to Michigan in the opening dual
meet of the outdoor season.
Naming Saturday's encounter with
Michigan as the biggest test in the
path of their drive towards 1936 Con-
ference honors, the Bucks are primed
to turn in their best efforts Saturday
for Coach Larry Snyder.
Jesse Owens, who returned to out-
door competition at Philadelphia last
Saturday with firsts in the 100 meter
dash and broad jump in addition to
running on the victorious Ohio State
sprint relay team, and Charlie Beet-
ham, brilliant half miler, will lead the
Scarlet in their tangle with the Maize
and Blue.
Minimize Michigan Record
Maintaining that "the Wolverines
were forced to take a back seat be-
cause of the overshadowing per-
formance of The Scarlet and Texans,"
The Ohio State Lantern tends to min-
imize Michigan's remarkable Penn
Relay record which was so acclaimed
in the East.
The meet has been doped by local
track experts as one of the closest of
the season. The outcome appears to
hinge upon three events-the quarter,
the half and the javelin.
After Charlie Beetham's brilliant
race at Penn Saturday when he made
up 20 yards on his leg to overtake
Michigan and Manhattan and win
the two-mile relay crown for Ohio,
he is considered a surety in the half.
Should Coach Snyder gamble on a
double win, he might enter Beetham
in the quarter against Stan Birleson
and take a chance on his star still
having enough left to take the half
too.
Owens is conceded firsts in the 100,
220, and broad jump, although he
beat Stoller by only 3/4ofhan inch
last week in the latter event. Whether
or not the Wonder Man will be en-
tered in the low hurdles is still a
matter of conjecture.
Relays Omitted
There will, of course, be no relays
run Saturday and thus the fans will
be deprived of seeing the two schools
which have the outstanding quartets
of the country perform against each
other until the Conference meet three
weeks later. The Buckeyes annexed
the sprint relay as well as the two
mile at the Penn Carnival while the
Wolverines were walking off with the
one and four mile crowns.
The Michigan men named to make
the trip include: Sam Stoller, Har-
vey Patton, Fred Stiles, Steve Ma-
son, Frank Aikens, Stan Birleson,
Howie Davidson, Benn Starr, Ray
Fink, Clayt Brelsford, Harry O'Con-
nell, Bill Staehle, Walter Stone, Bob
Osgood, Jack Uhl, Moreau Hunt, Skip
Etchells, Mike Savage, Leonard
Dworsky, Johnny Townsend, San
White, Nelson Droullard, Bob Pekels-

Paul Pinkerton, Charles Morgan, Bud
Martin and Tom Fisher.

Up By Tigers, Tur

By FRED DeLANO
If Manager Mickey Cochrane of
the Detroit Tigers was more than
a little irked when Washington's Pete
Appleton disposed of his world's
champions with only two hits yester-
day it was not without reason, for
the Tigers themselves could have
had Appleton for the price of a song
nine years ago when he finished
his career as a University of Mich-
igan pitcher.
At that time, however, "Appleton"
was not known, but instead it was
Pete Jablonowski who was hurling for
the Wolverines. Pete changed his
name when he entered professional
baseball and the complications com-
ing as a result reached a climax last
summer while he was making a good
record as a Montreal moundsman in
the International league.
Sounded O.K. To Navin
The late Frank J. Navin, formerly
owner of the Detroit ball club, had
received glowing reports from the
Canadian city on this star pitcher,
Appleton. Feeling that the Bengals
could easily use another right-handed
fast ball hurler, he sent scout Wish
Egan to Montreal to look the new
prospect over.
Watching Appleton from the
stands, Egan thought he recognized
the delivery of the thrower - which
is freakish to say the least - and fi-
nally realized that it was none other
than Pete Jablonowski whom he had
scouted several years before in Ann
Arbor. Egan left, convinced that Pete
could not make the grade in the big
show even though his minor league
record during the season was a good
one.
This spring Appleton was in camp
with the Senators and from the first
game he pitched he has consistently
done well for Bucky Harris. Yester-
day's accomplishment in so decisively
whipping Detroit, 7-3, was without
doubt the outstanding game he has
pitched since leaving school.
Delivery Is Deceptive
His delivery is probably the most
deceptive in the major leagues, as
he conceals the ball in his glove while
winding up and then drops it to his
pitching hand just before throwing it
toward the batter. The first time
Rogers Hornsby saw Appleton pitch
he claimed the delivery was illegal,
but the umpires ruled otherwise.
This is the fourth time that Ap-
pleton has had a trial with a major
league team and has started better
this year than in any of his previous

attempts. So far he has won three
games and has yet to be beaten.
He was a letter winner here in
1925, '26, and '27, playing on third
base while not pitching. Coach Ray
Fisher, who taught Pete a lot that
he knows about the game, expressed
an opinion last night that his former
pupil would go a long way in th4
sport if his 1936 start means any-
thing. Pete, however, has spent eight
years as a minor leaguer and is no
youngster as ball players go.

Greenberg Injured
As Senators Win
WASHINGTON, April 29. -UP) -
Hank Greenberg, the Tigers heavy-
hitting first baseman, was hurt in the
sixth inning of yesterday's game as
he reached to the left for a wide
throw and got in the way of Jake
Powell, who was racing toward first
base.
"It's a tough break for us," said
Manager Mickey Cochrane of the
Tigers. "Hank will likely be out for
at least a month and probably more."
The left wrist was the same he in-
jured early in the last world series.
