Judges' Ruling

Lake Shore A.C. Is Given
National A.A.U. Crown'
Amid Disputes
The Varsity swimmers climaxed a
successful season on April 8, 9 and
10 by winning and then losing the
National A.A.U. championship at
New Haven, Conn. The Wolverines'
had the meet cinched when a judge's
decision in the medley relay race dis-
qualified the first place Princeton
team and gave the event to Lake,
Shore AC, giving them enough points
to put them in the lead by one point.
Going into the final event, the
medley relay, Michigan led Lake
Shore by a 22-17 score. Princeton
finished first with the Chicago trio
trailing in second place. Princeton .
was disqualified for jumping the
gun, however, and Lake Shore was'
awarded the 10 points for first. While ,
they gained four points by the move,
the Varsity score was bettered by
onlv two.

sure of themselves, the Michigan club
on this southern tour has been out to
pin back the ears of every pitcher
they have faced and until Friday
were highly successful in their ef-
The season was opened with a
15-2 win over Ohio Wesleyan that
was credited to Herm Fishman. Roa-
noke was the next club to fall, going
down to defeat, 16-4, as the Wolver-
ines let loose with a barrage of hits
that was led by Peckinpaugh's two
doubles. Danny Smick was the win-
ning pitcher there.
Homers Win Thriller
Brewer and Uricek slammed home
runs at Washington and Lee to lead
the 15-hit parade there and an 11-
4 triumph was chalked up with little
trouble. Bert Smith was on the
mound. Then came the thriller at
William and Mary. Michigan jumped
out in front with five runs in the
first and two more in the second but
nine Indian tallies in the last of
the second wiped out this big lead.
Herm Fishman went in as a relief
hurler and received credit for the
win that eventually came about with
Campbell's long homer in the ninth.
IThe game with Virginia was rained
out in the second after Michigan had
grabbed a 2-0 lead in the opening
session. At Maryland the next day
John Gee had trouble with his con-
trol and the Terrapins got to him

Michigan's tennis squad, set back
in their- first contest of the year by
the Wisconsin- squad last Saturday by
a 4-2 score, went ahead with prac-
tice today in Preparation for their
meet with Michigan Normal, here
this Wednesday.
Captain Miller Sherwood figured in
both of the matches which the Wol-
verines won, taking his singles con-
test and teaming with Neil Leven-
son to take a doubles match, for the
other Varsity victory.
Coach John Johnstone was forced
to delay temporarily the use of a six
man team recently approved by the
Conference as the Badgers brought
only a four man squad to Ann Ar-

ably the most important circuit clout
was Bob Campbell's ninth inning
smash with two on at William and
Mary that gave the Wolverines an
11-10 decision.
Last year the Wolverines became
known around the league as a min-
iature of the famous St. Louis Car-
dinal "Gashouse Gang" and the boys
are back at it this year louder and
scrappier than ever. Cocky and
My pen never will start when
I want to write with it.
Sounds like ink trouble to me.
Get some of Rider's ink and see
how much better it acts.
