Track And Diamond Squads Leave

Today or Crucial ests



Hoyt Picks 24
Men To Make
Hoosier Trip
Miller's Recent Showing
Earns Him Berth; Steve
Mason Injured
A twenty-four man Michigan track
squad, named finally by Coach
Charlie Hoyt after last night's abre-
viated drill; will leave for Blooming-
ton at 10 a.m. today where the Wol-
verines are scheduled to tangle with
the Hoosiers Friday in a dual meet
that will in some respects be a pre-
view of the Conference Champion-
ships to be decided two weeks later
at Columbus.
A combination of circumstances
has forced Hoyt to alter his plans
slightly for the Indiana clash. Steve
Mason's back injury is still troubling
him and as a result, he will not make
the trip. But the recent perform-
ance of Chuck Miller in the quarter
has convinced the Wolverine coach
that he has a coming star in the
newly discovered Petoskey sopho-
more and with Mason out, Hoyt
plans to run Miller in 'the quarter,
then bring him back in the 220.
Peckelsna, Zahnow To Go
Hoyt decided to take both Bob
Peckelsma and Orlen Zahnow, broad
jumpers' with the team in prefer-
ence to Joe Fisher, shot putter who
can only do a few inches better than
Skip Etchells.
Michigan's chances for points are
better in the broad jump than in
the shot, particularly with Etchells
to fill in anyway, and the fact that
Zahnow is a sophomore while Fish-
er is a senior undoubtedly was taken
into consideration.
With Mason out and Miller run-
ning in the quarter and 220, the
Michigan mile relay team will be
composed of Stan Birleson, Harvey
Patton, Capt. Frank Aikens and Fred
Stiles, while Bob Osgood will be re-
served for his tangle with Dan
Caldemeyer in the hurdles.
Birleson After Revenge
Stan Birleson, star Wolverine 440
man, will be gunning for Malcolm
Hicks,. Hoosier who beat him to the
tape in the indoor encounter between
the two teams when they met in the
Field House here Feb. 29. Hicks
time was 50.4, but since then he has
apparently gone stale while Birleson
has been improving steadily.
The team tha4 will make the trip
today includes: Sam Stoller, Fred
Stiles, Bob Osgood, Moreau Hunt,
Stan Birleson, Harvey Patton, Chuck
Miller, Capt. Frank Aikens, Ben
Starr, Howdy Davidson, Clayt Brels-
ford, Ray Fink, Bill Staehle, Walter
Stone, John Townsend, Skip Etchells,
Mike Savage, Orlen Zahnow, Bob
Peckelsma, Adam Stone, Leonard
Dworsky, Morris Morgan, Nelson
Droulard and Harold Robinson.

In Last Match
Michigan's Varsity golfers will ap-
pear at home for the last time this
season when they meet Illinois Satur-
day in the final Conference dual meet
of the year.
Monday and Tuesday of next week
Coach Ray Courtright's men will de-
fend their Big Ten title over the Kil-
deer Country Club course at Evanston.
Capt. Chuck Kocsis will be after the
individual title he won in 1934 and'
lost to teammate Johnny Fischer
by three strokes last spring.'
Coach Courtright has not yet de-
cided on the fourth man to play inI

the Conference championships andl
will not do so until after the Illinois
match Saturday. The first three men1
will of course be Captain Kocsis,
Woody Malloy and Al Saunders.
The fourth man to play will be
chosen from the trio of Larry David,
Al Karpinski and Bill Barclay, but
five men will make the trip to Evan-
ston Sunday morning.E
Barclay will be at number fourt
against the Illini Saturday, accord-
ing to Coach Courtright. The Flint
sophomore is the only one of the1
trio battling for the fourth spot who1
has not played in a four-man matcht
this season. While he has not turnedt
in as many low scores as David ori

Three Clashes

Fhshman, Jack Of All Trades,

Playing Stella

IT LOOKED like a pretty barren
spring in prospect foi Ray Fisher as
he began lining up his baseball talent
last fall. Gone from the 1935 team
which got by, not as world beaters,
but in good shape, were Captain Russ
Oliver and the rest of the infield,
including Clayt Paulson, Jack Teitel-.
baurh and George Ford, and John Re-
geczi from the outfield. Joe Lerner
could be shifted from the outfield
to first base, to be sure, but that still
left a gap in the field.
Berge'r Larson was a pretty capable
pitcher, as no one would protest, but
beyond him the pitching staff looked
very meagre. John Gee had nothing
but a long arm, and who can ever
depend on sophomores? One bright
spot was Kim Williams, the Varsity

heartening enough, hitting Fisher

the illness which took Kim Wil-
liams out of action, just sparing
his life in fact.
It certainly looked like a sad sea-
son in prospect as Fisher began talk-
ing about "getting by this week-end"
and "a lucky .500 season." But today
the Michigan team rides at the top
of the Big Ten with five straight
wins and has a season's record of 12
wins and four losses, three of the
losses coming on the southern trip
by one-run margins.
What explanation can there be for
such a record which already insures
a successful season, when prospects
were so unquestionably poor? The
answer is simply in the manner in
which the first-year men have come!
through to plug up gaps. And not
only have they filled the gaps but
they are making the team with their
attitude and play.
If it is possible to pick a leader
among the first-year players it would
probably be Herm Fishman, not only
for his actual work on the mound,
where he has won four games in as
many starts, and in center field, but
because of the spirit which he has
imbued. As cool as a professiosal,
Fishman's appearance in the game is,
Members of Goli

To the casual observer following
the activities of the Varsity golf team
the men representing Michigan are
merely a group of golfers. Excellent
golfers, to be sure, for the Wolver-
ines have won the National Colleg-
iate championships for the past two
years and are favorites to do so
again this summer, but still they are
not recognized by the average fan
for what they really are: holders of
individual titles, past and present,

Next would be the second-base
combination of Steve Uricek and
Don Brewer. Given the confi-
dence which a series such as last
week's conveys, Brewer is begin-
ning to team with Uricek as cne
of the best combinations Mich-
igan has ever had.
Another sophomore is Merle Kre-
mer, now hitting at .370 after chang-
ing his batting style, and a pretty
valuable man to have coming up to
the plate.
But the sophomores aren't the only
first-year men who have stepped in,
for there are also John Jablonski and
Carl Ferner, first-year men despite
their senior standing.
It was Ferner, an excellent bench!
duster for two seasons, who set the
pace as the team got under way on
the southern trip, returning home
with a batting average of .500, and
who for his first season at third has
turned in a top-notch fielding per-
Jablonski was the man really on
the spot as the season began, as he
was called on to fill in for the stricken
Williams and to finally give an ac-
count for the promises made of him
as a freshman but which two years
of ineligibility had cancelled. Anyone
who has seen Jabby play knows how
he has come through, as they can
also attest to the manner in which
Fisher's dire predictions have re-
mained unfulfilled.
