To Hold Lead
Northwestern Beaten Nine
Times In Big Ten Race;
Fishman To Pitch
Coach Ray Fisher and a 14-man
squad will leave at 3 p.m. today for
Evanston to play the Wildcats Fri-
day in the first of two games which
will take the Wolverine team to Wis-
consin on Saturday.
Seeking their fifteenth win and
eighth Big Ten victory, the Michigan
ball club will be playing against a
Northwestern squad that has played
good ball at times but has showed in-
consistency throughout the year. Tak-
ing advantage of Wildcat misplays,
Minnesota mixed up a 15-hit broad-
side to send 12 runs across the plate
while Northwestern was scoring five
runs last Saturday at Minneapolis.
In the other game, Grossman, Gopher
pitching ace, hurled his third shutout
of the year, beating the Wildcats 6
Northwestern has lost all nine of
her Conference starts and should be
an easy win for the Wolverines.
Floyd Stromme, who yielded five hits
and eight walks against the Gophers,
will be the probable starter in Friday's
game, while Herm Fishman will do
the honors for the Michigan team.
Men Making Trip
In addition to Fishman, those mak-
ing the trip are Capt. Berger Larson
and John Gee, pitchers; John Jab-
lonski, catcher; Joe Lerner, first base-
man; Steve Uricek, second baseman;
Don Brewer, shortstop; Carl Ferner,
third baseman; Merle Kremer, left
field; George Rudness, center field,
and Vic Heyliger, right field.
Moving on to Madison on Saturday,
the Wolverines will play their last
Conference game until they meet
Iowa in a two-game series here on
June 2 and 3. Providing Michigan
hurdles the Badger obstacle and Iowa
takes two out of three in her series
with Minnesota tomorrow and Sat-
urday, the Iowa-Michigan tilts will
decide the Big Ten championship.
Larson will be on the mound for the
Wolverines Saturday and will be seek-
ing his fifth win. Bill O'Brien, Wis-
consin righthander will oppose him.
Although splitting a two-game series
with Western State on Monday and
Tuesday, the Badger tilt will be the
game Coach Fisher's men will shoot
Gophers Hit Stride
Although not hitting their stride
until about two weeks ago, the Goph-
ers have become the nemesis of all
would-be championship outfits. They

Saturday and on the preceding Sat-
urday tumbled the Illinois team from
the undefeated column for the first
Next week's schedule for the ball

SPORT SH IRTS
By GEORGE J. ANDROS -
'It's In The Bag' . .
THE Varsity track team leaves to-
day in quest of Michigan's 15th
Western Conference outdoor track
championship. The Wolverines are
rated the underdogs in most mid-
western circles despite the fact that
they are defending champions and
won the indoor title last winter -
but we are echoing the cry that has
been ringing across Ferry Field this
week: "It's in the bag." We have
three reasons for our optimism.
First of all Michigan has more po-
tential pointwinners than any of the
other contending schools. Indiana,
Ohio State and Wisconsin all are tied
down to a maximum number of
points - only the biggest kind of an
upset will bring them any unlooked-
for places. Michigan's team, on the
other hand, is replete with men wlJ
can be expected to crash the scoring
column unannounced or better their
predicted position and give the Var-
sity a good winning margin.
In the second place Michigan has
Charlie Hoyt. Charlie has been turn-
ing out Varsity track teams since
1929, and every year without fail he
has his men at the peak of condition
for the Conference meet. The Wol-
verines may drop dual-meet decisions
during the season by disappointing
performances, but when the Big Ten
crisis comes along late in May every
spring, the disappointing perform-
ances are few and far between.
Charlie always has his men ready, and
we feel the same will be the case
THIRD and last Michigan has a
tradition. It is what Mr. Yost
calls "The Spirit of Michigan." And
much of that tradition has been built
up by Varsity performances in Con-
ference track meets.
Ralph Cannon, former Notre Dame
athlete writing in the Chicago Daily
News after Michigan unexpectedly
had won the Big Ten meet in 1932,
aptly recognized "The Spirit of Mich-
igan" when he said in part:
"There must be something in this
tradition, at that. Two teams, Ohio
and Indiana, went into the Big Ten
track meet at Evanston Saturday with
better prospects of winning than
Michigan, yet both failed just where
their greatest strength seemed to lie,
while once more the Wolverines
fought through. And the interesting
thing about it was that it was the
Michigan mediocrities and unknowns
that rose to the occasion. Hill, Wolfe,
Ellerby and Moisio -.they were the
boys who turned the trick.
"Their fine feats go into the great
stream of Michigan tradition. They
ran not for themselves, with only
their own legs and lungs, but for the
great Michigan family, knowing that
all had their eyes on them, expecting
them to come through like brothers of
a noble line."
We have a feeling we will see some
more of this same thing Saturday at
"It's in the bag."'

23-Man Squad Will Be At
Full Strength To Oppose
By ROY HEATH
Today at 4 p.m. the 23-man Wol-
verine track squad will leave Ferry
Field for the Big Ten track and field
meet at Columbus, O.
The Michigan team will enter the
fray at full strength after three days
of light workout in an attempt to
bring every man to the peak of per-
fection which will be needed to garner
every possible point. Every possible
point will be all which can save the
Western Conference crown, for un-
like the three- main threats for the
title, Indiana, Ohio State, and Wis-
consin, it is possible that Michigan
will not pull down an individual first
Three Michigan Chances
There appear to be only three pos-
sible chances for Michigan first places
judging from past performances,
which is risky at the best. Sammie
Stoller seems to be in the best con-
dition possible to spring the upset
of the year and beat out Jesse Owens.
Skip Etchells, defending discus
champion, looks good for a possible
repeat, with several practice tosses
of better than 150 feet in practice this
week. Etchelis will have his hands
full with Bill Freimuth of Minnesota
who placed third last year and has
recorded a 152 foot throw this year.
Bob Osgood is a better than even
chance to nose out Indiana's Dan
Caldemeyer, despite the fact that the
Hoosier ace holds a decision over
Osgood by virtue of his record-tying
flight of high hurdles last week at
Bloomington. Observers say, granted
Caldemeyer is a top flight hurdler, the
fact that he had the advantage of
what is known as a "rolling start" may
have had something to do with his
One-Mile Relay Good
The above individual performance
guesses do not apply to Michigan's
"remarkable relay," the one-mile relay
quartette which has made some of
the best in the nation look bad.
They are good for a first in any track
get-together, or at least they have
been for two years.
All in all, Michigan's chances lie
in the hope that every man will pull
through with his points whether they
be first or fifth. The more the better.
If they do then the outdoor track
crown will set in Mr. Yost's trophy
case for the fifteenth time.
Frosh Nine Wins
From Phys Eds.
In the annual baseball game played
yesterday between the Phys. Eds.
and the freshmen, the yearling lads
overwhelmed their opposition by a
score of 13-4.
Chuck NVcHugh, on the mound for
the frosh, gave up only six hits, one
a homer by Valek, Phys. Ed. hurler.
Valek yielded 11 safeties, including
home runs by Gedeon and McHugh,
before being relieved by Beebe, who
did most of the catching for the Phys.
The first-year men, paced by Li-
sagor with four hits and Peckin-
paugh with three, were far in the lead
throughout the game and it was not
until the last two innings that a run
was scored against them.
Valek led the Phys. Ed. attack,
contributing three hits. 11

Four teams moved into the quarter-

Cheered on by a howling crowd of
nearly, one hundred frantic support-
ers of both sides, the A. T. O.'s out-
slugged the D. T. D.'s 16-14 to win.
Don Meyers pitched for the winners
and Bob Christie and Bob Henock for
the losers, both being touched for
hits almost at will. The A. T. O.'s
came from behind in the second in-
ning to score 12 runs, 16 men batting,
and gained a lead which was kept
throughout the game. Bill Borgman
clouted two home runs for the D. T.
D.'s and his teammate, Don Graves,
also hit one.
George Bolas once more led his
Delta Upsilon team to a victory, twir-
ling one-hit ball and fanning nine
to shut out the Phi B. D.'s 5-0. The
single hit came in the last inning
with two men on bases. Al Blumen-
feld pitched for the losers.
With neither team retaining a lead
for more than one inning at a time,
Sigma Phi finally eked out a win from
Sigma Chi 9-8. Pat Lusk on the
mound for the Sigma Phi's, was con-
siderably off form but his team's
better fielding gave him an edge.
Hal Blackburn, Sigma Phi third base-
man, hit the only homerun. Bab
Parkin was the losing pitcher.
Singling in the sixth with two on,
Joe Sklaver knocked in the necessary
two runs allowing the Phi D. E.'s to
beat Kappa Sigma 8-7. Martin Alex-
ander hit a home run. The Phi D.
E.'s hurler was Bob Koschik with Sol
Stein tossing for the Kappa Sigs.
