Yankees Beat
Athletics While
Dodgers Lose
NEW YORK, April 26.-(I)-The
Yankees pounded out thirteen hits
today to gain a 7-1 victory over the
Philadelphia Athletics and thereby
accomplished a handsome handful of
spectacular feats.
First and foremost they displaced
the A's as American League leaders
with a record of three triumphs and
one defeat. Johnny Broaca, who
limited the losers to six hits though
he gave seven bases on balls, became
the first Yankee pitcher to go the
route this season.
Score by innings:
New York . ........ .000 211 30x-7

BROOKLYN, April 26.-G')-Scor-
ing seven runs in the first two in-
nings, the Boston Bees defeated the
Dodgers, 9-5, today. The Bees
knocked Luke Hamlin out of the box
in the first inning and continufd
their drive against Ralph Birkofer,
who relieved him.

The" second postponement in a
week of their scheduled meet with
Michigan State left the Varsity golf
team looking forward to their com-
ing match ,with Ohio State here
May 1.
The Spartan meet, which was slat
ed for this afternoon over the Uni:
versity golf course, has been held
over until May 5, according to Coach
Ray Courtright.
Satu rday's meet will be the secondt
of the season for the Michigan golf-
ers, having beaten Purdue here lastr
week, 12-6.
Coach.es Plan

For Gridder
With less than a week remaining
before the annual tussel between the
Yellows and the Blues on May 1,
Coach Harry Kipke is working his
charges hard whenever weather per-
mits in order to have the squad in
top shape for the game.
Yesterday's drizzling rain and sog-
gy grounds held up the program that
called for long, hard drills all week.
Kipke and Hunk Anderson feel that
there are still a few rough edges that
need polishing before the squads take,
the field Saturday and expect that a
few tough scrimmages will bring
about the desired results.
The annual intra-squad grid tilt
always arouses a great deal of in-
terest as it gives the Michigan fans
their first chance to view the men up-
on whom the Wolverine's future rests
next fall.
Danny Srmick, Bob Campbell, Tex
;tanton. Elmer Gedeon, Johnny
Smithers and several others wh o were
regulars on last year's grid squad are
working out on the baseball or track"
teams and won't don moleskins and
headgear until next fall's practice
sessions start. A number of hard-
working freshmen, however, have
filled their positions very capably
and may fill those posts on the regu-
lar eleven next fall.-
It is in this game which winds up
spring practice every year that the
final decision is made concerning the
freshman who is to be awarded the
Chicago Alumni Trophy for being the
most outstanding frosh prospect dur-"
ing spring practice. Last year it was
John Jordan, a center, who was hon-
ored, but this year the choice may
be very difficult to make.

and dries the infield.
Coach Ray Fisher's men are having
trouble prying the lid off the local
diamond season since their scheduled
opener with Wisconsin last week was
postponed because of rain and pros-
pects look none too bright for today;
but if the sun shines, the "Gas House
Gang" will be out there fighting.
Will Be Second Start
Herman Fishman, still the ace
hurler of the squad, despite his loss
in the first contest with Iowa, is
slated to work on the mound today
against Dave Arnold, a pitcher who
dropped an l1-inning, 3-2 decision
to the Wolverines last year and beat
Wisconsin 13-0 last week.
Strangely enough, it was Herm
Fishman that started against Ar-
nold in that game. Herm was re-
lieved by Captain Berger Larson who
went on to get credit for the vic-
tory when Don Brewer scored on a
base on balls and a wild throw in
the eleventh.
Larson's victory was the second
'or Michigan in five years of compe-
tition with the Hilltoppers, always a
strong outfit and one that had held
the State championship in baseball
for four straight years.
Title At Stake
Western State in general and Dave
Arnold in particular will be out for
revenge and a chance to regain their
Mtate title today and the contest
should be one of the besttof the cur-
rent home season.
Coach Fisher intends to start the
same line-up that took the second
game of the Iowa series. The players
in batting order will be Brewer,
Peckinpaugh, Beebe, Uricek, Kremer,
3mick, Campbell, Heyliger and Fish-

Then Hits Safely
Baseball men are agreed that the
hitter who can take two and then
hit to right can write his own meal

name. With two strikes up a pitcher
has a great advantage over the bat-
ter, who invariably tightens up to
avoid striking out.
Yet the Wolverines boast of a hit-
ter, who doesn't always hit to right,
but who shows remarkable ability to
slap out bingles when the count con-
tains two strikes. He is Bob Camp-
bell, hitherto a reserve outfielder who
is fast moving into a regular berth in
the Michigan outer corps.
He did not come into his own, how-

ever, until the fourth game of the
southern trip against William and
Mary College. The Wolverines, losing
10 to 8 going into the ninth inning,
managed to get two men on after two
were gone. It was the pitcher's turn
at bat, so Bob was injected in the
role of a pinch hitter.
Bob watched two strikes whizz past
him, and the fans began to leave the
premises. But the next pitch was
soundly shellacked between the left
and center fielder for a game-winning
To prove it wasn't sheer luck to hit
a third strike, Bob repeated the trick
several times during the past few
games. In the first game of the Iowa
series last week, he pinch-batted for
Patanelli, and two strikes were quick-
ly shoved by him. Then he slapped
the next pitch for a triple.
