Looking 'Em Over
___________ .A.G.
EDITOR'S NOTE: For the next few
days, "Looking 'Em Over" will present
descriptions of the teams that Mich-
igan will face on its Southern trip.
Coach Ray Detrick, like Coach
Fisher, has lost five regulars from
his first year's Buckeye Conference
champions. Art Thomas, the leading
hurler in the' Ohio Conference, is
back however and the Delaware ag-
gregation will probably be favored to
repeat as Buckeye champions.

AlBoxing Team.. ..
Show to be held tonight in Yost
Field House with its card of all-
Michigan bouts brings up that oft-
repeated question of "Why not a Var-
sity Boxing team at Michigan?" The
record .of University boxers in local
and state amateur competition
speaks well of the potentialities from
which a Varsity aggregation could
be developed. For a coach one would
have to look no farther than Water-
man Gym to Vern Larson, developer
of an annual crop of good freshman
boxers; or to the Intramural Build-
ing to Martin Levandowski, one-time
conqueror of Jimmy Braddock, or to
Johnny Johnstone, former boxing in-
structor in the British Navy. Mich-
igan State, Toledo U. and Wisconsin
would furnish plenty of opposition
for a starter, and from there activ-
ities could spread East to Syracuse,
Duke, Navy and other powers in the
collegiate boxing world, and to the
annual National Intercollegiate tour-
nament. One doesn't have to won-
der much about how the students:
would back the team. Boxing is like
Smithers Is In. ...
JOHN SMITHERS, blocking half-
back and right-handed hurler
cinched the present number-four
spot behind Burt Smith, Herm Fish-
man and John Gee on the Varsity
mound staff this week. Kept out of
baseball action last season by in-
eligibility and threatened this spring
by a bad knee developed in the
Northwestern game last fall, John
has been a doubtful quantity. Tues-
day afternoon the Elkhart junior
took his turn in the batting cage
and showed his stuff before Coaches:
Ray Fisher and Benny Oosterbaan.
A curve ball that broke down and
away in fine style had Matt Pat-
anelli and Walt Peckinpaugh guess-
ing, and when Merle Kremer "broke
his back" on a half-speeder, Fisher
grinned broadly and strode away.
The Tackle Situation...
AT THIS EARLY DATE it looks as
though there were going to be
plenty of power and effectiveness at
the tackle positions on the 1937 Var-
sity eleven. Fred Janke, badly in-
jured against Minnesota last season,
and sophomore Joe Savilla from the
hills of West Virginia are bringing
forth more than a few compliments
from observers of spring drills, but
that is only half the story. Battling
'with the books at present is Don
Siegel, who finished tse 1936 season
as number-one tackle, and a very
effective one at that. Then there is
"Butch" Jordan, still nursing a knee
injured wrestling with Lehigh Uni-
versity's heavyweight. The action
"Butch" provided before he was re-
moved from the Indiana game by in-
juries augers very well for his fu-
ture. And don't count out three
double letter-winners in "Abe" Lin-
coln, Erle Luby and Mel Kramer or
sophomore Bill Smith. By the time
Hunk gets through with these boys,
they are going to be a darn good
bunch of tackles to have around.
Fred Perry won his third profes-
sional tennis match from Bill Tilden
last night at the Olympia in Detroit,
triumphing by the score of 6-4, 6-4,
6-4. This match was the fourth. in
a series of five, and clinched a victory
for Perry in the series, as the score
is now three matches to one in his

Bob Thalner (above) will battle with Don Cash tonight at Yost
Field House in one of the featured bouts on the Fresh Air Camp Benefit
Boxing Show. Both boys are outstanding boxers in the heavyweight
division on Coach Vern Larson's yearling squad. They have shown a
great deal of ability so far this year and the fight is expected to furnish
fans with plenty of thrils. Thalner is from Flint and Cash is from
Elmhurst, Ill.

Title With 67 Score
Phi Gamma Delta annexed the an-
nual fraternity track championship
last night at Yost Field House, with
a total of 2012 points to 17 for its
nearest competitor, Acacia. At the
same time, the D.D.'s were crowned
Independent champions, scoring an
amazing total of 67 points in their
Phi Delta Theta and Alpha Sigma
Phi placed third and fourth among
the fraternities, with 15 and 13 points
respectively. The Wolverines gained
the runner-up position in the Inde-
pendent division with a total of 27,
while the Blue Raiders' 25 points was
good for third place.
Leading the Phi Gams in their
drive to the title was Elmer Gedeon,
sophomore football and baseball star
who took both hurdle races with ease,
and was high-point man among the
fraternity men with ten points. His
teammate, Bob Holt aided materially
with a second in the pole vault and
third in the low hurdles.
Buderus Is Second.
Brooks Buderus, Chi Psi freshman,
was second to Gedeon among the
point scorers, along with Bob Cooper,
football star of Phi Delta Theta,
each counting nine markers. Buder-
us captured the 50 yard dash in the
extremely fast time of :06.4, and was
second to Fred Schwarze of Phi Kap-
pa Psi in the broad jump, while
Cooper took the shot put with a
heave of 38 feet, 6 inches, and fin-
ished at Gedeon's heels in the low
Gene Kenaga, versatile Wolverine
performer, led the Independent scor-
ers with a similar 10-point total,
taking the 440-yard dash, and finish-
ing second in the low hurdles and
fifth in the broad jump. Danny
Smick, all around Varsity star,
showed his ability in a fourth sport,
when he scored nine points for the
D.D.'s to take second individual hon-
ors. Smick snared the pole vault
with a leap of 11 feet, and took a
second in the shot put.
Reed Cracks Mark
Probably the outstanding perform-
ance of the evening was a six-foot
one inch leap by Gene Reed, D.D.
high jumper. Reed, a former Uni-
versity of California varsity man
broke all existing intramural rec-
Other notable performances were
a 4:58.02 mile by Frank Hogan of
Alpha Sigma Phi, and extremely fast
half mile races' in both divisions.
John Mair of the D.D.'s covered the
distance in 2:08.4, while George Good
of Acacia won the fraternity event
in a time but two seconds, slower.

"S's" are likely to hold a kind of ter-F
ror for young collegiate. batsmen,
granting they develop as per schedule.
The "S" boys are Burt Smith, Dan
Smick and John Smithers, a trio ofb
right-handers who purvey an assort-9
ment of orthodox slants. Each of the
flingers has had a little experience
either in high school or on some
dusty sandlot.
Baptised Under Fire
All three have had their baptism
under fire in some other sport, Smith
as a hockey defenseman, Smithers as
a halfback and Smick as both gridder
and cager.
Smith, farthest along the condi-
tioning trail, features a fine fast ball
and, can "pull the string" on it with
considerable effect. This change of
pace was Burt's chief asset until
Coach Ray Fisher took him in tow
and taught him a curve ball, whicht
he has mastered well to date, withf
improvement bound to follow.f
Smick has been bothered by a stiff-
ness in his shoulders due probablys
to his football activity. But lately
he has shown a semblance of the fast
ball he used to blaze by batters as a
freshman, and with warmer weather
loosening up those muscles, he
should come along in great shape.
Curve Ball Develops
Smithers also experienced diffi-
culty snapping his fast ball down the
slot because of shoulder tension. In-
tensive work has loosened him up,
however, and now he can barrel a
fairly fast ball over the plate. Under
Fisher's vaunted tutelage, John has
developed a good curve. He showed it
to advantage in Tuesday's drill, and
if it remains consistent then oppos-
ing batters are going to find him
Smith and Smithers are juniors,
having attained eligibility for base-
ball for the first time this semester.
Smick is a sophomore, who may di-
vide his time between the mound and
first base, where Fisher plans to
utilize his latent hitting power.

Lou Banks, Roger Lockwood
and Fred Schroeder--heavy slug-
gers all of them-will be back in
the outfield . . . Jimmy Morgan,
the "mighty mite" will handle
the second base position . . . In
the backstop post, Ollie Hess,
sophomore star, is giving Glen
Stover, last year's regular re-
ceiver, a great fight for the start-
ing catcher's job.
Michigan is getting a break in the
Ohio Wesleyan game since the Dela-
ware nine is playing Cincinanti in its
first league game of the season on
the day after it meets the Wolver-
ines . . . Thomas will probably be
saved for the Cincinnati game.

MONTREAL, March 31.-(P)-De-
troit's Red Wings received the bad
news tonight that Norman Smith, in-
jured goalie, has no chance of being
back in the lineup for Thursday
night's title game with Les Canad-
The game, which will decide the
National Hockey League champion-
ship and the Stanley Cup contestant,
will end a five-game series evened
up by Tuesday night's 3 to 1 victory
by. the Montreal Canadiens.
Manager Jack Adams of the Red
Wings, after conferring with Dr. C.
L. Tomsu, team physician, and James
Norris, Sr., owner, announced there
was "absolutely no possibility" for
Smith to play.
He said he wanted also to correct
an impression that Earl Robertson,
rookie goalie, would be replaced be-
cause of Tuesday night's defeat.

Small Hope For Jones
In Augusta Golf Classic
AGUSTA, Ga., March 31.-(VP)-On
the eve of golf's nearest approach to
a world series, 38 ranking profes-

made up the entry list for the fourth
scramble over 72 holes in the Agusta
National Tournament.
For the first time since Jones re-
entered competition for the all-star
battle, the Atlantalawyer was not a
favorite in the betting.

The Bears have already opened

up to predictions but even so were

that Watson should be good for third
