ROARING AGAIN
Despite the loss of several stars,
the Princeton Tigers, unbeaten and
untied last year, are looking forward
to another banner season due to a
wealth of reserve material.

By RICHARD F. SIDDER Detroit high schools, Herman felt
Jack of all trades and master of that it would be better to devote his
none is not the saying to apply to time to baseball. Most people will
Herman Fishman, stellar hurler on undoubtedly agree that this choice
the Michigan nine, for although he was a wise one, but a glance at his

can do almost anything in an ath-
letic way, he does it all well.
When Fishman pitched and won
his first Big Ten start against Ohio
State last May, he confirmed the1
fact that he is a pretty handy fellow;
to have around. Coach Ray Fisher
is but one of a numerous array of
coaches who have depended on the
stock southpaw in a pinch and then
watched him come through with fly-
ing colors.
Captains Three Sports
Herman can trace his athletic
prowess all the way back to the time
when he was a, member of his gram-
mer school track, soccer and base-
ball squads. In junior high school,
he established himself as the city's
most versatile athlete by winning let-
ters in six sports and acting as cap-
tain in three, soccer, basketball and
baseball.
He entered high school with a big
reputation and proved himself
worthy of it by winning three let-
ters in each of three sports, football
in which he was a halfback, basket-
ball and baseball. He was twice
named to a guard position on the
All-City cage squade and led his
team to the city championship in his
junior year. As a pitcher and out-
fielder on the Northern nine, Fishman
was instrumental in bringing his team
two league titles.
Peculiarly enough the one sport in
which he had the most natural talent
he was unable to play-tennis. Be-
cause tennis is only a minor sport in
Rentals ,

net record might make them dubious.
Captures Tennis Titles
Pairing with Howie Kahn, the
present Michigan Varsity captain, he
won the Michigan and New York
State junior doubles championships,
he was Michigan boy's singles title-
holder, and the winner of numerous
singles and doubles trophies in New
York state tournaments.
This past season, he established
himself as the leading reserve at a
guard position on the cage squad de-
spite his short and stocky build
which makes him look like anything
but a basketball player. He is a
tricky ballhandler and dribbler, an

excellent long-shot, and good de-
fensive man. His fine play in the
closing minutes of the Purdue game
nearly pulled it out of the fire for
Michigan.
When Herman reported to Coach
Fisher this spring, it did not look as
though there was another opening for
a starting pitcher as Capt. Berger
Larson and John Gee were of known
ability. But Fishman proved that
"you can't keep a good man down"
and at the end of the 1936 season
boasted a percentage of 1.000, having
won eight straight starts.
In the parlance of the day, Her-
man is strictly a "Saturday player."
He may not look like a star in prac-
tice, but he has the true competitive
spirit, and when the heat is on, you
can always depend on him to come
through.

meetin i ecem oero decu e wnere
the Conference tourney is to be held
for 1937. The tournament is slated
to go to either Minnesota or Mich-
igan. It is the Wolverine's turn for
the meet and all indications point
that it is coming our way.
Michigan should be given consid-
eration since Coach John Johnstone's
netters placed third in the Confer-
ence last year and because Ann Arbor
is centrally located for the Big Ten
schools. If the coaches should de-
cide to play six man teams next year,
the Wolverine netmen, playing on
courts to which they are accustomed,
would have the best chance to win.

Fred Janke (above), a 200-pound sx-footer from Jackson, Mich. is
Coach Kipke's likely choice for left tackle. A star in prep school, Janke
has lived up to all advance dope that preceded him to the University.

Heap Bears Brunt
Of Wildcat Attack
By renewing grid relations withl
Northwestern, Coach Kipke's prot-
eges will have an opportunity to
avenge the 1934 defeat suffered at
the hands of the Wildcats.
According to Coach Lyn Waldorf
his squad "should be coming along
in November." Since the Wolverines
will meet their conference rivals on
Nov. 14, the.Varsity can expect some
tough'competition. Both teams have
suicide schedules-that is-both are
booked to oppose Minnesota and
Ohio State, last year's so-champons.
Coach Waldorf has an all-veteran
backfield with Don Heap slated to
do most of the ball carrying. Bobby
Swisher, senior speedster, will again
be back at left half.

EASTERN HOPES
Princeton, Fordham, and, Pitts-
burgh are expected to uphold the
gridiron reputation of the East in
several intersectional battles againstI
teams from the South, Mid-West and
Pacific Coast.
