Conference baseball crown, playing
three games at Iowa City on Friday
and Saturday. the Michigan ball club
has a fifty-fifty chance of remaining
at the top of the heap until ial
exams swing around with the two

The big hurdle that the Michigan
clubbers have to clear before the
final test, however, is the game card-
ed for Saturday at Madison. The
Wisconsin giant killers have assumed
a major importance to all the would-
be championship clubs, having hit
their stride this last week with three
wins in four starts. Two of these
wins, over Iowa, last Saturday and
Illinois the preceding Saturday, have
proved decidedly to the advantage

The banquet this year will be
graced by four Detroit alumni, all
of them famous Michigan football
men of the past. The award will be
presented by Meyer Morton, Chicago
official and Big Ten official.
The four alumni who are expected
to attend are Germany Schultz, who
critics have often called the great-
est center that ever lived; Willie Hes-
ton, famous back of thirty years ago;
Tod Rockwell, quarterback on the
team of 1925; and Stan Fay, one of
the greatest blockers ever to play
on a Michigan team and captain of
the great 1933 eleven.
The winner of the trophy is chosen
by a committee of the football coach-
ing staff. The factors which are
considered are present ability, future
possibilities, mental attitude, and at-
tendance at practices. The winner
last year was Bob Cooper who did not
play during the season because of an
The most likely candidates this
year are Bob Curran, Al Loiko, and
Russell Hook, backs and Fred Janke,
John Jordan and Don Siegel, line-
men. All of these men showed up
well in both fall and spring practices
and are all very promising.
The banquet will begin at 6:30 p.m.
and is under the auspices of the
Michigan Athletic Association.
Lawson Little And Horton
Smith Lead List Of Stars;
Kocsis Will Also Play
An exhibition of golf by some of
the foremost golfers in the world will
take place at 2 p.m. Thursday on the
University Golf Course.
Leading the list of the guest experts
is Lawson Little, twice winner of the
British and American Open. Con-
sidered by many as the world's rank-
ing player, he is the only person to
have ever accomplished the double
slam feat. His appearance here is
among the first he has made since
turning professional recently.
A former national American cham-
pion, Horton Smith, will also appear
in the exhibition. Rated as one of
the five leading golfers in the world
at the present time, Smith made the
best record of any American pro-
fessional during the past winter, col-
lecting well over $7,500 in prize mon-
ey. Chief among his recent victories
were the Miami-Biltmore at Pasadena
and the annual Masters' tournament
at Augusta, which he won for the.
The other professional to appear
here is Jimmy Thompson, of Shawnee
on the Delaware, Pa. Because of his
rep utation for being the longest man
offuthe tee in professional ranks, he
has gained a rating with the first ten
golfers in the world.
Capt. Chuck Kocsis of the Varsity
golf team will complete the group
which will play in 18 hole, best-all
foursome. A half hour preceding the
match, at 1:30 p.m., the famous pros
will give a demonstration of the var-
ious shots as they should be executed.
Golf course officials have asked that
ladies attending the match refrain
from wearing high heels as they cut
up the turf on the fairways and
greens. There will be no admission
First of all our congratulations to Bill Reed, retiring editor, who from
the day he gave us our first assignment and our first by-line, has been
a real friend and a confidant. He has given the present senior staff the
credit for the success of the page during the past year. We in turn give
it to him, for his sincere interest in the page and in Michigan athletics
has been the driving force behind Fred Buesser, Fred DeLano, Ray Good-
man and myself.
To the three above who have been so close to us during our two and one-
half years on the staff together, we need say nothing. We understand one
another perfectly, and our work shall go on as harmoniously as it has in thel
past - regardless of what fickle fortune has done to us.
. This column shall appear regularly - every day if possible. Part of
the time it shall consist of initialed contributions by other senior members
of the staff - whose ability we recognize and respect.

"The Press Angle" is dedicated to our most exacting critic (whose
name must go unmentioned) and to Al Newman, who as, a fraternity

writing into something tangible that eventually has led us to where we
Our policies as Sport Editor shall in the main be a continuance of those
of our predecessor's. In our covers of Varsity athletics we shall strive for
the concise and readable and the elimination of the sensational. Intramural
coverage shall continue under Ray Goodman as it has since the Spring recess
-on the same basis as a Varsity sport.
National sport news will be interspersed among our columns as its im-
portance and interest demands. Mayor League baseball scores will appear
every day during the season and complete standings at least once a week.
Michigan athletes we shall recognize as fellow students and amateurs
competing for the glory of the University and the fun of the game. Any
criticism shall be made with the cooperation of the coaches, and a losing
team that is working conscientiously will not be "ridden."
