, Baseball Teams Set For

Departure On Spring Trips

Hoyt Chooses
22 On Squad
For Trip West
Team Leaves Tomorrow
For Berkeley To Face
California Thinclads
Coach Charles B. Hoyt, Varsity
track mentor, announced yesterday
that 22 men would be included on the
Michigan squad leaving here to-
morrow afternoon for Berkeley, Cal.,
where the Wolverines will face the
University of California in a dual
meet April 17.
The Michigan contingent will ar-
rive in Los Angeles Monday morning
and will remain there for three days.
The thinclads aking the trip are
Capt. Bob Osgo d, Sam Stoller, Alan
Smith, Stan Birleson, Howard David-
son, Harold Davidson, Chuck Miller,
Ben Starr, Clayt Brelsford, Ed De
Vine, Harry O'Connell, Neree Alix,
Dave Hunn, Jim Kingsley, Bill Wat-
son, John Townsend, Steve Mason,
Herb Martens, Fred Martin, Ed Stan-
ton, Harvey Clark and Bill Staehle.
Senior Manager Harrison Church will
also make the trip.
Is Return Meet
The meet with the Bruins is a
return engagement for the Wolver-
ines who dropped a decision to Cal-
ifornia in 1935. It was in this meet
that Neree Alix suffered a broken leg
while running in the two mile and
the forthcoming meet is his first ap-
pearance in outdoor competition since
that time.
Stoller and Smith will be battling
Anderson and Pollock of the Bears
in the century with the two Wol-
verines favored to take two of the
places. The fleet Sammy should
breeze across the line the winner.
Hoyt's charges have had little op-
portunity for outdoor work since the
close of the indoor campaign and be-
cause of this California will prob-
ably rate as a favorite. Michigan's
strength lies largely in the distance
runs, shot put, sprint and hurdles
in this meet for the Bears apparent-
ly, have no great power here.
Williams A Cinch
Archie Williams, Olympic cham-
pion at 400 meters, is practically a
certainty to give the Bears a first
place although he may find Stan
Birleson pressing him through at
least the early stages of the quarter.
Williams may also compete in the 220
and on the mile relay team.
The last event may be the high-
light of the meet for California is
known to have a powerful relay
quartet while there is no doubt about
the strength of the Michigan team
which was clocked in 3:19.8 in an
indoor meet this winter. If the
Wolverines do this well outside they
should win.
Approximately 250 candidates re-
ported yesterday for spring football
practice at Notre Dame University,
The first drill was turned over to
news reel and newspaper cameramen.

Michigan Nine
Ready To Play
Burt Smith Likely Starter
For Tomorrow's Game
Against Methodists

Hunk Speaks . . . Sixteen members of Michigan's
Varsity, present monarchs of Big Ten
BELIEVERS in a myth to the gen- baseball, will leave at 8:00 a.m. to-
era, affect of "Notre Dame hates morrow for Ohio Wesleyan where
Michigan" received 'a setback a few:

nights ago when Varsity line coach
Hunk Anderson spoke at a meeting;
of Notre Dame alumni in Detroit.
When Hunk concluded with: "I'm
proud and I'm happy to be a mem-
ber of Harry Kipke's coaching staff,"
the graduate of the South Bend in-
stitution rose and cheered him as
enthusiastically as of the times when
he was Rambler head coach. "At
Michigan this spring we're all work-
ing together," Hunk said. "There's
harmony and there's cooperation."
The new Michigan mentor had much'
praise for Fielding H. Yost as a coun-
selor to the coaching staff and a
"past master of the art of scouting."
Significant among Hunk's remarks
was a prediction that the Michigan
football team would go back into the
winning column with a bang next fall,
starting off with a victory over Mich-
igan State. He was especially en-
thusiastic over the interest shown by
the candidates for the 1937 eleven.
"It has been just like the old winning
days at Notre Dame."
* * *
Degener Dominates.*. .
D I C K DEGENER, Michigan's
Olympic diving champion now
busily engaged in the tailoring trade,
predicted yesterday that Al Greene,
Chicago Lake, Shore A.C. veteran,
would be his immediate successor to
the title of "outstanding amateur
diver in the United States." Both
Degener and Marshall Wayne, Dick's
closest rival, entered the professional
ranks during the past year. Greene
is favored to annex both the low-
and high-board titles for Lake Shore
in the A.A.U. championships start-
ing tonight in Yale's pool. "Al Pat-
nik of the Ohio State Freshman
squad, is the coming diver," Dick
said, "but he needs some intensive
coaching while he is still in the for-
mative stage." Patnik holds two de-
cisions over Jim Patterson, Ohio
State's Big Ten and National Col-
legiate low-board champion. Elbert
Root, an outstanding platform diver,
may cause Greene some trouble off
the low-board if he has rounded into
shape since he arrive in Detroit from
Florida two weeks ago, Dick said. +

they will play the first game of their
annual southern trip.
The squad that is driving the 175.
miles to Delaware, 0., for the Wes-
leyan game tomorrow includes in-
fielders Bill Lane, Danny Smick,
Steve Uricek, Pete Lisagor, Don
Brewer and Walter Peckinpaugh;
outfielders Matt Patanelli, "Butch"
Kremer, Vic Heyliger and Bob Camp-
bell; catchers Captain Kim Williams
and Leo Beebe; and pitchers Vurt
Smith, Johnny Gee, Herm Fishman
and Johnny Smithers.
Lisagor Named
Lisagor is making 'the trip as a
utility infielder. Pete has had experi-
ence at second and short and will
be able to step into any infield posi-
tion if necessa'ry. Campbell, the
extra outfielder, clinched his selec-
tion on his showing in the Varsity's
first practice game of the season yes-
Coach Ray Fisher's men have a
difficult task cut out for them if they
are going to better the record of last
year's squad which came home with
a record of five victories out of eight
games. Johnny Gee and Herm Fish-
man, the Wolverines' two stellar left-
handers, came home with the hurling
honors from last season's southern
trip with two victories apiece against
no defeats.
Eight Games Listed
The team will play eight games in
the next week and it is hoped that
these contests will straighten out
Coach Fisher's pitching problem. At
the present time, Michigap has a
large group of hurlers of which no
one but Burt Smithhas shown that
he is ready to pitch. Five hurlers-
Smith, Fishman, Gee, Smithers and
Smick ar'e making the trip, and all
will be given plenty of opportunity
to try their hands on the mound.
Danny Smick, who will alternate
between first base and the mound.
"Peck" Peckinpaugh and Pete Lis-
agor will be playing Varsity ball in
the infield for the first time. Leo
Beebe, a catcher, and Burt Smith,
star righthander are other rookies
making the trip.
Smith May Pitch
Smith seems to be the most likely
candidate for mound duty against
Ohio Wesleyan tomorrow. Leo Beebe,
sophomore backstop and the posses-
sor of one of the strongest arms in
baseball, will be ready to don the
catcher's paraphernalia should Capt.
Williams need a rest. Kim has been
gaining weight at a steady rate but
is not yet in possession of his full
The schedule for the trip is as
April 9-Ohio Wesleyan at Dela-
ware, O.
April 12-Roanoke at Salem, Va.
April 13-Washington and Lee at
Lexington, Va.
April 14-William and Mary at Wil-
liamsburg, Va.

April 19-Ohio State at Columbus,
The Marshall College game was

Sophomore Sprint Ace
~r 5
Alan Smith, crack sophomore
sprinter and broadjumper, will be
one of the outstanding competitors
in the speed events as the Wolver-
ine track forces meet California
at Berkeley April 17. Smith, from
Paw Paw, Mich., is co-holder of the
freshman 100 yard dash rcord of
9.9 seconds.

Wings, One Down,f
Still.Maintain Hope
DETROIT, April 7.-(P)-The in-,
jury-ridden Red Wings of Detroit,
one game down to New York's Ran-
gers in the Five-game Stanley Cup
series, came home today with a feel-
ing that "We'll pull out of the hole."
To retain the cup they won; last
year, the League champions must
stop the inspired rush of the "hot"
Ranger team and win three games'
here before Lester Patrick's young
men get two more victories.
The Wings think they'll do it.
They have pulled out of tight places
before, most recently at Montreal in
the championship playoffs when, af-
ter dropping two decisions to the
Canadiens following goalie Norm
Smith's injury, they came back to
win the overtime deciding game.
"The tension is gone," big Marty
Barry, Detroit center, told Manager
Jack Adams tonight after the Red
Wings left their train and gathered
on the home ice. "All the other
fellows feel the same way."
