Teams Give Demonstrations In Spring Sports Clinic

Of Material Bolster Golf Squad

Stars Perform
Before Players,
Coaches H e r e

Little heralded as yet, and ham-1
pered by cold and rainy weather, the
Var sity golf squad is practicing daily
in the driving nets at the I-M build-
Coach Ray Courtright expects the
squad to prove as strong as last year's
team although Chuck Kocsis, captain,
Big Ten individual title holder, as
well as top amateur in the National
Open last year, and Woody Malloy,
number two on the Varsity last year,
and runner-up in the Big Ten meet,
will be badly missed.
Feels Confident
The return of three letter winners
from last year's championship team,
however, and the large amount of
other material on hand, cause Coach
Courtright to feel confident.
The handicap placed upon the'
team by the graduation of its form-
er stars will be more than made up,
by the balance of this year's squad.
Succeeding Kocsis in the captaincy
is Al Saunders who played consis-
tently well all last season. Bill Bar-
clay, another letter winner is expect-
ed to do well on the strength of his
previous preformances on the Var-
sity squad and his play in tourna-
ments last summer. Al Karpinski,
the third letter winner to return, did
not play as regularly as the others
mentioned, but is expected to hold
down a steady berth on this year's
May Be Open Race
The large amount of reserve ma-
terial from the 1936 aggregation are
expected to bolster the squad con-
siderably as most of these reserves
saw competition last year but did not
play in enough meets to earn a Var-
sity letter. On the strength of their
showing so far, some of these boys
are threatening to make the struggle
for places an open race.
Bill Griffiths, Harrison Williams,
Dick Burt, and Fred Schwarze, who
made up the bulk of last year's re-
serves are back and several sopho-
mores including Ken McCarren and
Ted Novak will be fighting for regu-
lar positions. Bill Yearnd, a long
distance hitter, who won the Intra-
mural championship last year is also
out for the squad this term.
Several others whose status is still
in doubt are expected to force their
way to the front and further com-
plicate the race for starting positions.
In fact, Coach Courtright is not wor-
rying about retaining the titles and
championships, he is wondering how

ccaches attending the annual spring
clinic lookiig on, Coach Harry G.
Kipke sent his football charges
through an intensive scrimmage yes-
terday despite a muddy field which.
made sure footing almost impossible.
Four full teams participated in the
drill, with Coaches Kipke and Hunk
Anderson taking charge of the first
two teams, while Wally Weber and
Cappy Cappon put the third and
fourth stringers through the rounds.
Battle On Even Terms
The first two elevens scrimmaged
on even terms for more than an hour,
with neither team scoring or making
much headway against the sloppy
field and the stiff opposition that
both lines presented.
What slight advantage there was
went to the Blues. With Doug Farm-
er, Hercules Renda, Wally Hook, Ed
Phillips, and Freddie Trosko taking
turns in the backfield, and Captain
Joe Rinaldi, Joe Savilla, and Art Val-'
pey doing yeomen work in the line,
the team marched down the field sev-
eral times only to fall short of scor-
Assisted Coaches
On one occasion a beautifully ex-
ecuted pass, Trosko to Valpey who
made a diving catch about 15 yards
short of the goal put the Blue team
in a good position. to score.
In the White backfield Louie Le-
vine, Norm Purucker, Bob Piotrow-
ski, Don Page, and Stark Ritchie
took care of ball-toting duties, while
John Jordan played a bang up game
from his center post.
A casualty during the scrimmage
'was Fred Ziem, veteran guard, who
injured his arm during a pile-up in
the line and will probably be out for
a few days.
Leo Dravlang, an ex-Michigan
tackle, is assisting the coaches with
the line material and spent a busy
afternoon showing several of the4
first year linemen some of the finel

to pick the four most effective men. points of tackle play.

The clinic, held for the benefit
of all high school baseball, track, ten-
nis, and golf players and coaches,
got under way in the morning when
American League baseball sound pic-
tures and shots of the N.C.A.A. track
meet were shown in the Natural Sci-
ence Auditorium.
Track Demonstrated
At 1:30 Coach Charley Hoyt's track
team gave a demonstration to the
assembled throng. Coach Hoyt ex-
plained the correct form of taking
the hurdles as Captain Osgood
skimmed over the wooden bar. Sam
Stoller, Alan Smith, and Bill Wat-
son gave an exhibition inibroad
jumping. A fast quarter mile was
run in the time of 50.8 seconds. The
mile run ended in the fast time of1
4:24.4. The time for the half milet
was 1:55.9.<
Immediately afterwards Coach Ray
Fisher and his boys took the spot-
light. Fisher began by' explaining
about the various faults of most'
young pitchers and their correction.
Russ Dobson, freshman hurler, threw
an assortment of pitches for the ben-
efit of the coaches to catcher Leo
Beebe, with all eyes intent upon his
delivery, an item stressed by Coach
Fisher. There were exhibitions of
first base playing, throwing to sec-
onid, batting, and sliding, explained
by Benny Oosterbaan. Afterwards
Fisher and Oosterbaan answered
questions of the assembled coaches.
Wrestlers Perform
Up in the gallery Coach Cliff Keen
led his wrestlers through an exhibi-
tion, prefaced by his explanations of
the various holds. Earl Thomas and
Paul Cameron then gave a wrestling
Over in the Intramural Building
Coach Ray Courtright talked about
the promotion of golf in the high
schools. Pictures were shown and
then Captain Saunders, Bill Warren
and Bill Barclay of the golf team
gave a driving demonstration.
The tennis team then played a
few exhibition matches, with Captain
Sherwood, Dean, Bullock, Levenson,
Percival, Slattery and Thorward par-
ticipating in doubles and singles
matches. Previously, Coach John-
stone had given a talk on tennis and
had answered questions of the in-
terested group.
The football scrimmages attracted
many onlookers desirous of seeing
how a big college team practices.
Baseball Team
Shows Wares
At Sports Clinie
Coach Ray Fisher put his infielders
through their paces again yesterday
afternoon despite the cold wind that
swept across Ferry Field. The first
string infield again had Walter Peck-
inpaugh at third, Don Brewer in the
shortstop post, Steve Uricek on sec-
ond, and Bill Lane as first sacker.
Captain Kim Williams was doing
the catching.

some sound films in the Natural Sci-
ence Auditorium yesterday morning
at which Ted Husing narrated some
of the intricacies of American League
baseball, and then put on a little ex-
hibition of their own for. the high
school coaches and players down at
the Field House in the afternoon.

of the correct pitching form, Leo
Beebe showed how a good catcher
whips the ball down to second, Bill
Lane exhibited the technique of a
first sacker and Coach Fisher gave
the assembled coaches some pointers
on batting.
