Captain Miller Sherwoodj
Will Lead Netters' Questj
For BigTen Title
Micigan's chances of copping the
Big Ten teninis championship or
anything approaching it next year
look very slim. Four of last spring's
seven letter winners will be missing
when Coach John Johnstone looks
over his squad. They are Capt.
Howie Kahn, Jarvis Dean, Johnny
Rodriguez, and Ted Thorward.
While graduation has made serious
inroads on the Wolverine tennis
squad, the Northwestern and Chi-
cago teams, composed entirely of
sophomores and juniors lastyear,
have come through intact.
And so these two powerful squads
which finished in first and second
places respectively in the Conference
last season should have only each
other to contend with again next
Coach Johnstone's proteges, while
hopelessly outclassed as far as
championship aspirations go, should
bid' fair to finish in third position
again. Capt. Miller Sherwood, beat-
en only by Don Leavens of North-
western in the Conference meet,
should provema very dependable]
number ,,one man.'l
Sherwood has had two years of
Big Ten tournament experience and
proved the most consistent winner on
the team last year. He has the
physique, the strokes, and the de-
termination, and with a summer's
practicerbehind him should go far
this year.
Jesse Flick, still the biggest ques-
tion mark on the team, will prob-
ably hold down the number two po-
sition. The tall Texan stylist showed

Although five outstanding men on
Michigan's 1936 championship base-
ball team have graduated, it appears
at the present time that Coach Ray
Fisher will have another great club
next spring and that the Wolverines
will once again be fighting for the
Conference title.
Returning for another season of
diamond play will be seven regulars,
two of them hurlers. Herm Fishman
and John Gee, both southpaws and
the former undefeated in eight starts
last season, are the moundsmen back

Uricek, keystone combination that at
times last season looked like the class
of'Conference infielders, are the other
returning lettermen. Uricek is in-.
aligible at the present time but may
be able to overcome the scholastic
difficulties during the first semester.

are Elmer 'Gedeon, Danny Smick, and

The 1936 team not only won the
Big Ten crown but also took indivi-
dual honors in several divisions of
play. Vtc Heyliger led the loop in
runs batted in, knocking 14 men
across the plate. Capt. Larson struck
out more men than any other hurler
while the mound staff of Larson,
Fishman and Gee together had the
best earned run average of the league,
1.07 which is stellar pitching on any
man's ball club. This trio allowed
only10 runs in 87 innings against
Big Ten clubs.
Uricek led the hitting with a mark
of .359 while Kremer and Heyliger
reached .333 and .314 marks respec-
tively. Ferner and Rudness, both
graduated, hit at an even .300 clip.
The team batting average of .277
was fourth in the league.'

How to Play Them by the Staff of
the Intramural Sports Department,
University of Michigan; Edited by
Elmer D. Mitchell. A. S. Barnes and
Company. $2.50.
In Sports for Recreation the staff
of the largest Intramural Sports de-
partment in the world has compiled
a text book of 28 timely sports put-
ing at the finger tips of the ath-
letically minded student and instruc-
tor necessary information that in the
past could be found often only in
;he most inaccessible places.
The authors, Director Mitchell, A.
A. James, John Johnstone, Earl
Riskey, Randolph Webster and to a
smaller degree Ernest Smith, Leland
Coutler, Harold Copp, and Kenneth
Doherty, attempt to treat each sport
from the standpoint of the beginner
or average player rather than go into
it extensively. They present the his-
tory, a general description, the spe-
cial skills and techniques, rules,
equipment, and other prerequisites of
each and do so in such a manner that
even the attention of the mildly in-
terested observer is held.
Still the book is primarily a text{
book. Such sports as badminton,
squash, fencing, speedball, lacrosse,
touch, softball, volley ball, handball,
and horseshoes as well as the more
widely known sports are explained.
It is here that the book has its real
importance for it enables the stu-
dent of physical education to become
acquainted with a multitude of im-
portant sports without going into a
too exhaustive study of them.
The style is simple and unadorned
presenting the basic problems of each
of the 28 sports and solving them
clearly and economically.
The intramural sports system as it
is practiced at the University of
Michigan is, or rather would be if
successful in every detail, the utopia
