fullback and quarterback (so called).
"The running game, with Stark Rit-
chie, Wally Hook, Freddie Trosky and I
Norm Purucker-doing heavy duty, is1
well ahead of the game," Wally re-
minded me, "farther ahead than it
has been a this stage of spring prac-
tice anytime during the past three
years, but what we need is a pair of
good-sized blocking backs. No mat-
ter how mechanically perfect the
quarterback (the front man in the
Michigan system) may be, a 160-
pounder cannot drive a 210-pound
guard or tackle out of the play with
as short a start as he gets. And I
have four fullbacks who can drive
through the line for those extra two
yards, but for every time they plunge,
there are eight or 10 occasions when
they must block and block with a
vengance. Give us a blocking quarter
and a blocking full, and we will go
places next fall."
Just How Good ? ? ?
?UST how good a swimmer is Tom
Haynie at the present time?
Coach Matt Mann has said that the
Detroit sophomore will be a greater
star than Jack Medica, because he
has all of Medica's ability to judge
pace and a better finishing sprint.
But whether or not this is Haynie's
year will be determined tonight and
tomorrow night in the A.A.U. cham-
pionships at Yale. Tonight Tom,
who was voted the "outstanding col-
lege swimmer of the year after win-
ning the 220 and 440 free-style cham-
pionships in both the Big Ten and
National Collegiate meets, battles
Charlie Hutter of Harvard and the
Olympic team, who has made bet-
ter time than the Michigan swimmer
at the furlong distance. Then there
is the matter of swimming a second
time in one night to help the Wol-
verins in the sprint relay. But to-
morrow night brings that "something
drastic" I spoke of in Tuesday's
PRESS ANGLE. in the person of
Olympian Ralph Flanagan who un-
expectedly has come up from Miami
to argue with Haynie over the 500-
yard championship. Hutter and
Flanagan plus a relay leg one night,
and Flanagan at his favorite distance
(ho holds the American record) the
next night. That's Haynie's menu,
and on the outcome hinges Michi-
gan's chance to become the first col-
lege team ever to win the A.A.U.
Championships. It may be too much'
for Tom at this stage of his career.

Two Questions . . .
TWO PERTINENT questions con-
front Coach Ray Fisher as he
leads his Varsity bll team into the
rain of the Southeastern states;
namely who will play third base and
who will play first base? The battle
for the hot corner position is be-
tween Walt Peckinpaugh, son of the
great Roger, and Pete Lisagor, pe-
dantic sports scribe from Chicago's
South Side. Right now Peck is in-
stalled at third base, but Ray has
not yet made up his mind. Lisagor
seems to be too good an infielder to
keep out, but no place can be found
for him other than possibly third
base. But if Peck's hitting picks up
now that the team is out of the Field
House, his greater third-basing ex-
perience anl his slightly stronger
arm will put him in. With Lisagor
socking the apple the way he is, he
may replace the weak-hitting veteran
Don Brewer at short. Bill Lane and
Danny Smick, two towering basket-
ball centers, are waging struggle for
the starting spot at the initial sack.
Bill has had more experience and is
the smoother fielder of the two, but
Danny shows a tendency to pound out
basehits-so it's another tossup.

have so far displayed. Both mem-
bers of the crack Wolverine sprint
combination, Stoller and Smith, have
shown a knack for covering ground
in a hurry that the Pacific Coast
boys may find hard to match. Stoller
is an odds on favorite to gallop home
in the century while Smith should
collect another five points in the fur-
Watson A Cinch
If the. Bears count on a quarter-
mile cinch with Williams, Michigan
can come right back with Big Bill
Watson who tosses the shot about
five feet farther than anyone likely
to be on the field that afternoon.
Watson has been beating 50 feet con-
sistently with the ball and will pullj
a "one man track team" stunt for !

as he adds high jump, broad jump.
and discus to his repertoire in his
first outdoor appearance.
Bears Weak in Hurdles
Captain Bob Osgood and Steve
Mason look like the class of the
field in the high and low timber
events. Stout of California will be'
arrested for vagrancy unless he can
stir himself to better 15 seconds for
the 120-yard lows as compared with
the flashing ability of Osgood over
the high sticks. Mason has managed
to beat out the Wolverine captain,
in the few outdoor low hurdle trials
they have run and looks likely to
lead the field on the Coast.
Ben Starr Back
The closest event of the afternoon'
will pit Michigan's Bennie Starr,
back again and looking good, and
Howdie Davidson against Elton Wei-
man and Charlie Miller for the Bears.
Michigan's Harold Davidson, Harry
O'Connell, and Neree Alix look good
for a slam in the two-mile run but
Clayton Brelsford may run into some
unlooked for difficultyrfrom Chuck
Mehlert in the mile grind.
Wolverine pole vault chances de-
.pend on whether two bad legs, one
each for Dave Hunn and Jim King-
sley, are in shape to go the limit.
Both Michigan jumpers have bet-
tered 13 feet 3 inches in competition
this year which is as good as any-
thing the Bears can dffer. y
Bears Dominate High Jump
Unless Bill Watson outdoes him-
self in his high jump efforts, Brutusl
Hamilton's boys look good for a;
slam in the event, both Law and
Good having topped 6 feet 2 inches
this season.
If California presses Archie Wil-
liams into service in their one-mile
relay they stand a chance of taking
Michigan's crack quartet into camp.
If they don't the firm of Osgood, Bir-
leson, Mason and Clarke won't even
be panting when they finish.
