State intercollegiate athletic ri-.
valry will reach its peak this after-
noon at Ferry Field when the two
most powerful baseball teams in
Michigan, the Spartans of Michigan
State and Ray Fisher's own "gas
house gang," clash in the first of a
two game series, the finale to be
staged tomorrow in East Lansing.
The Wolverines added their 17th
win to the records Wednesday night
at Toledo, 6-3. Only five games have
been dropped this year and but five
more remain on the schedule includ-
ing the State pair. Waseda will be
the foe Monday, and Iowa Tuesday
and Wednesday, all three tilts to be
here.
Pitching Wins Victory
It was long John Gee who fire-
balled Michigan to victory over Toledo
and, with a fairassortment of curves
and a hard one that was for the most
part untouchable, he sent 11 men
trailing back to the bench by the
strikeout method. It was the first
full game he had pitched since May 9
and the performance assured Fisher
that his pitching corps is in top shape
for the big finish which may easily
result in Michigan's taking both the
State and Big Ten championships.
The only thing troubling Fisher at
present is the apparent slump which
,has struck his hitters. In the past
few games Steve Uricek, sensational
sophomore clean-up hitter, has been
the only one to hit consistently. At
Toledo he connected for two singles
and a 400-foot triple that sailed far
into left center, one of the singles
coming with the bases filled.
Batting Order Undecided
Michigan fans will be treated today
to the spectacle of two powerhouses
fighting it out. While Michigan's
season average is .773, State has won
12 out of 15 for an .800 mark.
Coach John Kobs of the Spartans
is as yet undecided on his batting
order and pitching selection for to-
day's affair. For pitchers he has
George Hill and Warren Walters, a
right hander and southpaw re-
spectively, to start against Fisher's
charges. Fisher has announced that
he will use Capt. Berger Larson this
afternoon and Herm Fishman tomor-
row, saving Gee for Monday's game
with the Japanese champions.
Today's game will start at 4 p.m.

Secondary Awards
Varsity Competition

For

One of the hardest hitting teams in the history of baseball at Michigan State College, this squad has a perfect record of five wins in inter-
sectional competition this year. The Spartan nine won four games in th e South and defeated Cornell in the East. They will play here today in
the first of a home and home series that will take the Wolverine team t c Lansing for a game on Memorial Day. The mythical State championship
will be decided in the two-game series, the Spartans having a perfect record in Michigan compeition this year while the Wolverines have dropped
one out of three tilts. Coach John Kobs, shown standing at the extreme left, will start Warren Walters on the mound today in an effort to snap
the WElverines' winning streak.

day by the Intramural staff of um-
pires. The two squads were picked
from a list of over 250 players who
participated in the diamond tourna-
ments.I
Eleven men were selected to fill
the ten positions on the fraternity
team, George Bolas, Delta Upsilon,
and Pat Lusk, Sigma Phi, being se-
leceted to share the mound position.
The eleven men were chosen from
eight different teams. Three of the
players were from Delta Upsilon, the
championship squad, and two were
chosen from Sigma Phi, the second
place winners.
Four of the ten independent meni
chosen for the honor were from the
D.D.'s, runners-up in the tourney,
while the only players selected from
the winning Physical Education teamd{
were Dwight Butler, the pitcher, and I
"Skinny" Nelson, the shortfielder.

Major Leagres

That the Spartans really want the titie was shown Tuesday when
they paid the strictest attention to the Wolverines in their triumph over ;
the Hilltoppers. Coach John Kol-s took notes on the Michigan hitters
throughout the game and was particularly impressed by Steve Uricek,
and he doesn't think he can hit a curve ball. Uricek, the leading hitter
on CoachFisher's club, has opposite opinions, however, and intends to
disprove Kobs' statement by slamming all hooks thrown him to the far
regions of the outfield.
Tomorrow's game in East Lansing will probably be witnessed by several
thousand people for it has become an annual Memorial day attraction in the
State Capitol.

They'll Play After All
WE NOTE with interest that the Minnesota Daily has commented favor-
ably upon the action taken by the Board of Western Conference Faculty
Representatives in regard to the Minnesota General college. States the
Minnesota paper, "the rules will not work a hardship on bona fide General
college students whose interest lies in carrying books and not in lugging
pigskins."
Fred Hovde, assistant director of the college, seems to disagree with
Prof. Ralph Aigler who some weeks ago informed us that the entrance
requirements were not the same in the General college as in Minnesota's
cther schools. Hovde reports the requirements to be the same, which,
coupled with the fact that students may continue in competition by
transferring from the General college after two years here, makos every-
thing rosy once again for the Gophers.
Japanese Champs HereI
BASEBALL fans of Southeastern Michigan in general and Ann Arbor
in particular will be treated Monday to a great international revue when
the strongest team Japan has ever produced, Waseda University's club from
Tckio, meets Michigan at 4 p.m. on Ferry Field.
In 1929 the Wolverines toured Japan and lost a close one to Waseda;
the incident was repeated in 1932 and Fisher, as a result, is especially
anxious to beat them on his home diamond.
Baseball has become as much of a national pastime in Japan in the past
few years as it is here, championship games often drawing close to 100,000

Malloy Renews'
Rivalry Today
On State Links
Woody Malloy will renew an early
season rivalry today when he meets
Tom Brand in the feature match of
the Wolverine-Michigan state golf
meet which will be held on the Lan-
sing Country Club course.
Brand, who has moved up to the
number one position following his:
stellar performances this spring, took
a decision from Malloy last April by
by a score of 212 to 1/2 carding a 7'
to Malloy's 80. ThetMichigan star
has been advanced to the lead-of;
position since Captain Chuck Kocsi:
is competing in the True Tempel
tournament at Birmingham.
Bill Taylor, the only veteran on thf
Spartan team, will meet Allan Saun-
ders in the number two match. Tay-
lor took a 3 and 0 beating from Koc-
sis in the earlier match, shooting an
80 to the Michigan captain's 73
Saunders had a medal score of 74 t(
beat Henrickson 3 and 0.
Al Karpinski, Dick Morairty, Bil
Barclay, Bill Griffiths and Emil Gal
Ian are the others named to th
seven-man squad which will leave fo
Lansing at 7:30 a.m. today. Twenty
one points will be out as only single
matches are on the schedule for fina
duel match of the season for the Bi;
Ten champions.
Zimmerman, Wilcox, Carl Nosa
and Jimmy Reasoner will complet
the Michigan State squad. All thre
lost their matches in the April mee
which the Wolverine linksmen wo
by a score of 19 to 5. Malloy's matc]
was the only one dropped that da
by the Wolverines.

Seven members of this year's Var-
iity tennis team will be awarded let-
.ers according to an announcemenit
made yesterday by Coach John John-
stone.
^at. Howi. Kahn heads the list of
"M" winners which also incudes
wo other seniors: Johnny Rodri-
',nez, Ponce, Porto Rico; and Ted
Thorward, East Cleveland, O.

Secondary Awards Made
Seconda┬░y awards will go to Leon-
ard Verdier, Grand Rapids; and
Mischa Barowsky, Holyoke, Mass.
With the Varsity tennis season for
1936 concluded, Coach Johnstone has
turned his attention to the freshman
squad in an effort to pick the best
prospects for next year's team and: to
smooth off rough edges in the year-
ling's play with much needed coach-
fing.
Twelve netters selected from a
squad of over 30 are playing a series
of abbreviated ranking matches every
afternoon this week on the Ferry Field
courts. At the end of the week John-
Sstone will select the eight best play-
ers who will receive numerals. This
sy,,tem of selection was made neces-
fsary by the fact that very few rank-
s ing matches were played this year,
r and no positions could be determined
from them.
e Outstanding Players
- Outstanding members of the squad
- which Johnstone terms 'the best we've
had here in years," are Bill Mills
n and Harold Bullock. Both Mills
. and Bullock are certain to win fresh-
0 man awards, and both are almost sure
to win varsity berths next season
l Practicing 'ith members of the squac
- they displayed a fine brand of tennis
e and Mills proved his ability by de-
r feating Neil Levenson of the Varsity
6-0, 6-2, while playing for the Grosse
s Pointe Tennis Club.
UA third possible prospect is Eddie
g Payne, who has already won two de
g cisions in the ranking matches.

tramural officials that on days of
