O'Brien was caught by his timer in

better than he had ever done before.
But the price was high, as O'Brien
took only fifth and was forced to
withdraw from the half mile when

Harrison Church Selected
As Manager; Thirteen
Get Minor Awards
By ROY HEATH
Bob Osgood, '37E, of Lakewood,'
O., Big Ten high hurdle's champion,
will captain Michigan's track team
for the season of 1936-37, according
to an announcement made last night
at the annual team banquet at the
Union. Osgood succeeds Captain
Frank Aikens, of Sioux Falls, South
Harrison Church, '37, of Elkhart,
Ind., was announced as the Varsity
track manager to succeed Boyd Allen,
'36E, of Milwaukee, Wis.
Also announced yesterday were the
names of the 19 men who will receive
track M's and the thirteen men who
will receive secondary awards.
Was State Champion
Osgood came to Michigan in 1933
after the completion of an outstand-
ing high school track career. In his
senior year he was state high hurdles
champion,, taking the event in 15.8
Osgood, as a freshman, was the
hurdle talent of what has been termed
by Coach Chuck Hoyt as the greatest
freshman track team ever to come to
Michigan. In his sophomore year he
proved himself by winning the in-
door Big Ten high hurdles event.
This year Osgood was nosed out by
Dan Caldemeyer, Indiana hurdle ace,
in the indoor event but came back at
Columbus to take the Conference out-
door title as he negotiated the tim-
bers in 14.2 seconds to tie the official
Besides being the number one tim-
ber topper of the team, Osgood has
the ability to be a great quarter-
miler. He has several times been part
of Michigan's great mile relay team.
The most spectacular of his races was
the rough and tumble leg he ran at
the Butler Relays in his sophomore
year to put the Wolverines in the lead.
His greatest race in the opinion of
experts was the night he anchored
the Michigan team home, winner by
inches over a powerful University of
Pittsburgh quartette in this year's
Michigan A.A.U. indoor carnival. Os-
good also ran a great third leg at the
Penn Relays a few weeks ago.
Among the recipients of letters are
three consistent point winners who
will be lost to Coach Chuck Hoyt by
graduation. They are Capt. Frank
Aikens, Sioux Falls, S. D.; Harvey
Patton, Detroit, and Widmer Etchells,
of Trenton, N. J., twice Conference

'Gas HMouse Gang'
Is Monicker Given
To Scrappy Nine
By FRED DELANO
Ray Fisher's hard hitting ball club I
may technically be known as the
Michigan Wolverines, but to the rest
of the Big Ten they have become
famed this season as a scrappy, um-
pire heckling miniature edition of
the "gas house gang," a "monicker"
that was first applied to the St. Louis
When the season opened it ap-
peared that Fisher had just another
bunch of mediocre, would-be stars on
his roster. When they whipped six,
teams on the Southern tour they be-
gan to look like a real ball club. When
they started coming back at the um-
pires with hot objections on close
plays called against them and fight-
ing for every ball game, Fisher knew
he had a title contender.
They were first dubbed the "gas
house gang" at Illinois a week ago
when they treated the Illini fans to
a real showing of how umpires should
be informed of their mistakes. In fact
they performed so ably that the umps
ejected Merle Kremer, slugging left
fielder, from the first game in the
They really hit their peak Friday at
'Northwestern, however, when Coach
Fisher led the parade of assault after
several obviously poor decisions. And
anyone who thinks Fisher is not one
of the best when it comes to umpire
" heckling should devote an afternoon
to listening to the Michigan mentor
"ride the umps" when the decisions
are breaking against his charges.
More than a decade of umpire tongue
lashing in the major leagues saw to
Ray's becoming an expert in this field.
When the umpire calling them from
behind the plate at Northwestern bel-
lowed "strike" on a pitch to Steve
Uricek which even the fans admitted
was high, the entire Michigan team
rose to protest. Said the ump after
listening to their protests "sit down
Fisher, I've heard of you." "Yea?"
retorted the Michigan manager, "well
I've never heard of you."
