Michigan Nine Favored Over Badgers In Game Here

basket last night was the follow-
ing report of the Varsity baseball
squad's tour of the Southeast during
the Spring Recess. It comes from
Pete Lisagor, sophomore sports scribe
and Coach Ray Fisher's potential
handyman of the Michigan infield.

Dear Chief:
The guy who said, "Go West,
Young Man," was biased; else he
never crossed the Mason-Dixon line
when the verdure turns green with
hope and the southern belle emerges
in all her effulgent-eyed splendor.
Dixie is God's country in the Spring-
time-and for the past ten days
Michigan's Wolverines have been its
^ustodians. It requires pedantic re-
straint to refrain from a poetic de-
scription of o1' Virginny, but a few
impressions I gathered may convey
the general idea.
What's A Ukase?
We went South for the serious bus-
iness of getting in shape for the Con-
ference grind, but when a southern
miss with a Stepin Fetchit drawl
zoos at you, it requires a coach's stern
ukase and a lot of Yankee ennui to
make "lollycums" beat the curfew.
We got our first taste of southern
hospitality in Charleston, W. Va., and
curiously, George, a fraternity brother
of yours was the genial host. He
was Ned North, Chi Phi pledge, who
put six itinerant Michigan men up at
brother Chuck McHugh's behest.
North not only supplied sleeping
qaurters of the home variety but also
treated us to a delicious breakfast of
Virginia waffles and sausages. And
he seemed apologetic when we de-
parted-for. not being able to do

captain is serving the DuPont Chem-
ical Co.
Rolled into a mild snow storm atop
a Piedmont ridge, and when three
tires collapsed simultaneously you
could have bought the sunny south

from 6 weary motorists for the price
of a coke. At the foot of the moun-
tain we consigned the fixing to Fa-
ther Looney, a country storekeeper,
while we repaired within and betook
of the warmth of the old-fashioned
stove and Ma Looney's willing con-
versation. She was suckling a 24-1
day old babe and wondered if wej
could suggest a nice name for the
type. What a pathetically happy soul
she was when we besieged her with
an assortment of handles ranging
from Ezekial to Ishkabibble. Vic Hey-
liger insisted upon the latter tag,
while Mac championed, "Michael
Patrick Looney." The mother liked
Dennis Ray, which gives you an idea
of What inroads the Hollywood in-
fluence has made. ' Matt Patanelli
preferred "Kimmel," and Butch Kre-
mer suggested "Larry." At any rate,
we promised to stop again sometime
and find-out which name won out.
The Beaver Outfaked
-The Beaver was seized with a ter-
rific penchant to acquire a lamb as a
team mascot. After several vain at-
tempts to buy one, he decided to ap-
propriate one. Picking a spot a con-
venient distance away from possible
buckshot, he tried to corral one and
a mad chase across a Blue Ridge
mountainside ensued. The lamb won
hands down, faking Vic out of his
shoes and actually outspeeding him
in the straightaway. The Beaver
would have done appreciably better
on ice skates.
They eat in mess halls in most
southern colleges, George, and the
fare is appetizing enough, but some-
how I don't like the regimentation
effect. At William and Mary, how-
ever, where the ratio of woman to
man is 7 to 5, it's hard to concentrate
on the food and a couple of boys were
caught stirring their coffee with
knives. Could romance be death to
the appetite?
On the Michigan bench at Roan-
oke, a ruffian, aged 13, mooched a
chaw of tobacco off someone and
proceeded to give us an exhibition of
his toughness. When Patanelli jibed
him about not being able to take it
the urchin swallowed several mouth
fuls to prove, "'baccer ain't strong
Besides, I been chewin' long enough
not to get sick from it."

The "Gas House Gang" just com-
pleted the most successful southern
trip in Wolverine history, winning
five out of seven contests played and
have already served notice on the
rest of the Conference that they
are out to annex their second
straight Big Ten title.
Burt Smith, ace right hander, will
get the call to work on the mound
for Michigan and will be opposed by
Walter Zuehls, best of the Badger
pitchers, who Coach Douglas has been
saving ,for the Wolverine game.
Brings Large Squad
Douglas is bringing a 19-man squad
bu reports from Wisconsin indicate
t th t Badger "prospects for a victory
in the Big Ten opener don't look so
promising." Coach Fuzzy Douglas'
nine turned in the phenomenal teamj
batting average of .407 for the first'
four games and make up in slugging
ability for any weaknesses that they
may have on the mound.
Stan Ferris, right fielder and one
of the few lettermen back from last
year's team, has garnered seven hits
and seven runs in 10 trips to the plate
to lead the team batting with a
mighty .700 average. Every regular
on the team is batting well over the
.300 mark and Co-Captain John Ger-
lach, who plays a fiery game at short-
stop, is leading in hits with eight out
of 16 times at bat.
Nine Refuses Rest
The Michigan nine took a much-
needed day of rest yesterday after
their gruelling trip and spent it play-
ing baseball. The "Gas House Gang"

game and went through a peppy

DETROIT, April 20.-(IP)-Paced
by the perfect batting performance of
Gerald Walker, Detroit's Tigers
opened the American League baseball
season here today with a 4 to 3 vic-
tory over Cleveland before 38,200
spectators who filled Nayin Field
nearly to capacity.
Walker, who led all the Tigers in
batting last year, opened the second
inning with a home run clearing the
left field wall on his first trip to
the plate, and followed this drive
with a triple, a double and a single.
He started the game-winning rally
in the fourth with his triple, scoring
with the tying run when one of Mel
Harder's pitches got past Frank Pyt-
lak. Goose Goslin, who had walked
on four pitches, took second on the
play, went to third on rookie Rudy
York's infield out, and scored the
winning run on Billy Rogell's
grounder to Odell Hale.
NEW YORK, April 20.-(IP)-The
world's champion New York Yankees
got off to a bad start in their quest
for another American League cham-
pionship today, dropping the 1937
opener to the Washington Senators,
3 to 2, before 45,850 in the Stadium.
Except for the third inning, when
the Yanks showed traces of the power
that enabled them to pace the field
by 191/2 games last season, Monte
Weaver, veteran right-hander who
went the route for the Senators,
would have scored a shut-out. In
this frame, the Yankees bunched four
of their ten hits to score both their
runs. Lefty Gomez hurled the
route for the Ruppert Rifles.
After holding the visitors to one
run and three hits in the first six
innings, Gomez slowed up in. the
latter stages and the Griffs bunched,
five hits in the sixth and eighth
frames to score two runs.
CHICAGO, April 20.- (0) - Cy
Blanton's sinker-ball limited the Chi-
cago Cubs to five hits today as Pitts-
burgh's Pirates scored a 5-0 triumph
in the National League opener before
a paid attendance of 18,940 chilled

Single, and Paul Waner who banged
out a double and a single, led a nine-
hit assault on southpaw Larry French
who remained for eight innings. Clay
Bryant, who finished, escaped with-
out permitting a hit.
The St. Louis Browns and the Chi-
cago White Sox were rained out while
the Boston Bees engaged Holy Cross

ning 6-5.
