The HOT STOVE

Purdue's Fate
In Title Race
At Stake Here;

Here's Why Townsend Is All-Big Ten

ii

'# ,

THE annual Daily all-Conference
basketball team has in past years
suffered from what every annual all-
star team but one must suffer, lack
of originality. In order to show a
degree of independence not possible
by post-season selections, the Daily
sports staff this year presents a team
selected before the conclusion of the
regular schedule.
Also, in the past, Daily all-star
teams have been charged with fa-
voritism, a charge which had no
grounds last year, of course, for ob-
vious reasons. But this year, with
the best team to represent Michigan
in six years due principally to the
presence of one individual, we will de-
ny every charge of favoritism in
nominating John Townsend at center
as Michigan's first all-Conference
cager since Ed Garner in 1932. And
we are confident that other all-star
teams will support us.
Forwards. Kessler and Haarlow
and no discussion is even neces-
sary. Bob Kessler is sure of re-
peating his All-American selec-
tion of 1935 and Bill Haarlow is
not far behind. Despite the fact
that every team in the Confer-
ence was laying for these two
boys, they dropped field goals
through the basket as easy as
Bobby Jones dropped one-foot
putts.
As one person now at Michigan who
has played both with Bob Kessler and
the Wolverines writes, "Kes in my
opinion represents the ideal athlete.
In the first place, he is the practical
example of that nebulous term, 'good
mental attitude,' for his very pres-
ence seems to buoy the Boilermakers
on to wilder scoring sprees. In the
second place he combines with an
athletic career, a scholastic record
which has frequently placed him on
the much honored 'Distinguished
List'."
Ken Gunning of Indiana and Jew-
ell Young of Purdue get our vote for
the second team posts. Gunning is
third in scoring with 124 points be-
hind Kessler and Haarlow and Young
is sixth with 104 but has played only
11 games and so will probably end up
behind Gunning when the season has
closed officially.
Warren Whitlinger, the Ohio State
flash, deserves more than casual men-
tion. Also deserving of mention are
Trenkle and McMichaels of North-
western, Rosenthal of Iowa, and
Combes of Illinois.
Center: John Townsend gets
our huzzahs and he'll probably
get every one else's. Spectators
were treated to a complete lesson
in passing in every game he
played. His shooting was be-
yon reproach and to call his ball-
hawking and team play remark-
able would be under-statement to
say the least.
The comments contributed on
Bob Kessler fit Townsend as well.
It is rare when a boy six feet
five inches tall and weighing 215
pounds is well coordinated, but
when he is plain lightning under-
neath a basket - it's basketball
history.

A fake to the right and then an amazing right-handed hook pass
from the left side back to the right. So difficult that not another man
in the Conference could do it even in practice, John Townsend, The
Daily's sekciion for all-Conference center, executes this pass with the
greatest of ease. It was on passes like this one that the Michigan soph-
omore ran rings around Illinois Monday night and it is passes like this
one that Wolverine fans hope will defeat the title-bound Purdue team
in the closing game of the season Saturday night. The picture shows
Herm Fishman, guard, taking Townsend's pass trailed by Don Brewer.
Bill Lane's "lost" look implies the difficulty of the pass.

10 Pitchers In
Daily Sessions
Under Fisher;
Capt. Larson At Head Of
Hurling Corps; Infield-
To Be BigProblem
With reports from southern base-
ball camps pointing to the fact that
the 1936 season will ouen within a few
weeks, 10 possible Varsity pitchers
are working out daily in Yost Field
House under the expert tutelage of
Coach Ray Fisher, ex-majorl league
mound ace, in preparation for the
strenuous campaign that has been
scheduled for the Wolverines this
spring.
Headed by Capt. Berger Larson,
this corps of moundsmen is one of
the largest ever to report to Coach
Fisher for indoor drill and with the
end of the basketball season Saturday
another pair of hurlers, John Gee
and Herman Fishman, will also turn
out. Larson and Gee are expected
to be the mainstays of the staff this
year and if a dependable supporting
cast can be found among the other
10 men Fisher will be more than
pleased. He has a group of six let-
termen returning to form the nucleus
of his team and the biggest task
will be the building of a formidable
infield.
Starts 16th Season
Fisher, who is starting his 16th
season as Wolverine baseball mentor,
has issued a call for candidates for
all of the other positions but until the
end of winter sport schedules is not
expecting many men to report.
Larson, Gee, George Rudness, Kim
Williams, Vic Heyliger and Joe Lerner
are the lettermen returning. Wil-
liams, confined to the University Hos-
pital at present, will probably see
most of the service behind the plate
while Rudness, Heyliger and Lerner
are all outfielders. Besides Larson
and Gee, the hurlers now working out
are Settle, Tange, Hertz, Harnden,
Lahti, Andronik, Greenblaugh and
Kremer.
Jablonski Eligible
The overcoming o, the eligibility
hazard by John Jablonski was cheer-
ing news .to the Wolverine coach who
is depending on him to handle one
of the vacated infield berths .
Of the 14 members of the basket-
ball squad, nine will probably report
for baseball. Gee, Rudness, Jablon-
ski, and Fishman are all on the court
aggregation as are also Matt Pat-
anelli, Stark Ritchie, Don Brewer, Bill
Lane and Manny Slavin. Fritz Rad-
ford, as well as Heyliger, of the hockey
squad will report next week.
The first game will be with Ohio
Wesleyan, April 10, and will open a
10-game spring training trip and a
hard 28-game schedule.

Patty Berg Shoots 74
For Low Medal Round
ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla., March 3.
- (IP)- Patty Berg, of Minneapolis,
eighteen-year-old golfing sensation,
today won the medal in the annual
Florida East Coast women's tourna-
ment with a score of 74, two over
men's par.
The youthful Miss Berg shot par
37 on the first nine and another 37
-two over regulation figures - on
the incoming route. Her medal 74,
however, was six strokes under the
80 which is considered women's par
for the course.
Mrs. Maureen Orcutt Owens, of Mi-
ami, finished second with 38-38 -76.
Third place went to Mrs. Opal S.
Hill, of Kansas City, with a 39-38-
77.
Kathryn Hemphill, of Columbia,
S. C., shot a 40-40-80; Mrs. Marion
Turpie Lake, of New York, finished
with a 41-40-81, and Jane Cothran,
of Grenville, S. C., a 40-41-81.
Hockey Summaries

Hoytmen Given
Big Edge Over
Ohio Thinclads
Despite Coach Chuck Hoyt's predic-
tion that Ohio State's track team will
give his Wolverines a good battle in
the Field House Friday night, a com-
parison of individual records pointss
toward an overwhelming Michigan
victory.
With Indiana and Illinois both
holding decisive wins over the Buck-
eyes this season, it seems unlikely that
the latter can do much to threaten
Michigan's perfect six-year indoor
dual record. Against Illinois last
week the Bucks displayed power in
only the 440, shot put, high jump
and pole vault.
Undoubtedly the ineligibility of
Jesse Owens has weakened Ohio to a
great extent but the consensus of

LET US MAKE
YOUR PORTRAIT

opinion is that even with the inimi-
table colored star the Buckeyes would
not be exceptionally strong.
Dave Albritton and Charlie Bee-
tham appear to be the stars of the
present Ohio squad and the chances
of Albritton's breaking the field house
high jump record are unusually good.
Against the Illini he cleared the bar
at six feet five and one half inches.
Beetham is a good 440 and half-mile
man, turning in a :50.8 quarter last
week.
Slams in the mile and two-mile
runs for the Wolverines are not im-
possible and a great majority of the
first places will probably be garnered
by Michigan. Bill Staehle is ex-
pected to take the two-mile from his
teammate, Walt Stone, and although
he is not expected to lower the Field
House mark he may duplicate his feat
of last week when, with a mark of
of f):25.6, he turned in the fastest two-
mile a Michigan man ever ran.

Kessler Leads Big
Ten Scoring Race
CHICAGO, March 8. - (P) - Pur-
due's Bob Kessler had a lead of eight
points over Chicago's Bill Haarlow in
their Big Ten individual scoring duel
today but the modern record of 167
set by Joe Reiff of Northwestern in
1933 seemed reasonably safe. Haar-
low pitched in 19 points last night
against Iowa, running his total to 138.
