Varsity Nine

To Stage Belated Opener Today Against Toledo

i --


(Daily Sports Editor)
April Showers.. ..
FREDDIE TROSKO, Joe Savilla and
Archie Kodros look likle the fa-
vorites for the win, place and show
positions in the race for the Chicago
Alumni Award given each spring to
the freshman football candidate
making the outstanding showing in
the pre-season drills . ..Spirit, abil-
ity and improvement-plus the nec-
essary qualification of regular at-
tendance throughout the spring-de-
termine the winner, and all import-
ant is the showing made in the an-
nual spring classic between the Blues
and the Yellows .... This year's game
will be played Saturday in the Sta-
dium . ..Correspondents unfamiliar
with the condition in the spring of
"Pneumonia Terrace" (press box to
you) are advised to bring an extra
supply of newspapers . (No, not
to read, you goof) . The first
Michigan football star to enter the
ranks of professional football was
'Willie Heston, immortal back of
Coach Yost's "Point-a-minute" teams
One year after he finshed college
around the turn of the century he
signed as a member of the Canton
(Ohio) team ... He received $600 and
expenses for the only game he played
as a "pro."
* * *
And Other.Drippings....
fARRY NEWMAN, Michigan's All
American quarterback in 1932,
dropped in at the Administration
Building 'the other afternoon, still
looking fit and dapper despite three
years of professional football ... The
stocky little Detroiter had just re-
turned from a Floridian vacatioi.
It was interesting to hear and watch
him discuss plays with Hunk Ander-
son .;Harry now holds an executive
position with the Rochester (N.Y.)
club, and hasn't as yet decided
season . . . However he may manage
whether 'or not he will play next
the team, although he can't figure
ot how they are going to travel to
theĀ° Pacific Coast to battle the new
Los Angeles eleven . . . Looking at
him made me wonder how such a
short fellow ever became 1932's great-
est college player and later a famous
"pro" back . . . He reminds me a lot
of Hercules Renda, little "strong
man" of the present Varsity squad.
NEW YORK, April 27.-()-The
Yankees today announced the release
of pitcher Steve Sundra, a right-han-
der, to their Newark "farm" team in
the International league. Sundra, re-
leased on option, was with Newark
last season after coming to the Yanks
originally in a deal with Cleveland.

Gee Is Slated
To Start First
Home Contest
Fishman, Smith To Follow
On Hill; Ohio State Plays
Here On Saturday
Rained out in their scheduled game
with Western State yesterday which
was supposed to have opened the
local baseball season. Coach Ray
Fisher's nine spent the day indoors
watching the leaden skies and pray-
ing that Jupiter Pluvius would take
pity and let them play a little base-
ball today.
The league leading Wolverines are
going to try to pry the lid off the
home diamond season again at 4 p.m.
this afternoon when they are sched-
uled to meet Toledo University on
Ferry Field.
Toledo Weak At Plate
Johnny Gee, giant southpaw fast-
ball hurler, will get the call to start
on the mound for Michigan today.
Coach Fisher also intends to give
Herm Fishman and Burt Smith a

Indiana's World Record Breaking Four Mile Relay Team

chance to work for two or
nings to keep their arms in

three in-


Coach Dave Connelly is bringing
a Toledo nine that is strong on field-
ing but weak at the plate. The
Rockets have a team average below
the 200 mark and Coach Connelly
has been shifting his line-up in an
effort to instill a batting punch. Bill
Mattison, catcher, and Charlie Cupp,
first baseman, are the outstanding
sluggers on the team and have bat-
ted in most of the runs that Toledo
has scored.
Fulghum Opposes Gee
Bill Fulghum seems to be the logi-
cal selection to oppose Gee on the
mound. Fulghum lost a tough con-
test to Hillsdale last week, 4-2, al-
though he allowed only eight hits.
Students must present their identi-
fication cards at the gate or pay the
40-cent general admission charge.
Michigan will play its next Big Ten
contest Sautrday against a strong
Ohio State team that is in second
place in the Conference standings
and right on the heels of the first
place Wolverines.
Herm Fishman shut out the Buck-
eyes in the first Big Ten game of the'
year, 2-0, but Coach Floyd Stahl's
nine has been rolling in great shape
ever since. Saturday's contest is the
last meeting of the two schools for
the current season and Michigan's
chances of keeping their Conference
title will depend to a large extent on
the outcome of the game.

Powerful W olverine Squad Favored
To Trim Hoosier Trackrmen Saturday

Indiana, where they seem to raise
nothing but great basketball players
and distance runners, -sends an ag-
gregation to Ann Arbor this week to
represent the Hoosier University in a
clash with Michigan, greatest dual
meet track team in the United States,
which in brief means that local. track
fans are in for the treat of a lifetime.
Pictured above is the greatest quar-
tet of miles that has ever competed
for any school at one time-Mel
Trutt, James Smith, Tommy Deckard
and Don Lash, from left to right.

Through Plays
For Squad Tilt
Again hindered by a cold drizzle
-and a soggy field, the football squad
was forced to stick to signal drills
yesterday afternoon. Only the third
and fourth string squads engaged in
Coaches Harry Kipke and 'Hunk'
Anderson have divided the entire
squad into teams for the forthcom-
ing Yellow and Blue tilt which will
take place on Saturday afternoon.
With possibly a few exceptions the
team that will take the field Satur-
day for the Blues will consist of Art
Valpey and Don Cash at ends, Fred

These four proved their superiority
over any other quartet of milers in
the world last Saturday at the Pennc
Relays when they broke all existing
records for the four mile relay with
a great victory in 17 minutes, 16.1
Lash, Deckard Outstanding
Most notable of the lour are Lash
and Deckard, both members of the
1936 American Olympic team. Deck-
ard added another title to his list
Saturday when he captured the 3;000
;neter Penn steeplechase while Lash,
the "Iron Man" of the American
track, also sped to victory in .a one- I
mile invitational race. Italy's Luigi
Beccali as well as Gene Venzke of
the New York Athletic Club trailed
the powerful Hoosier to the tape in
this event.
In the distance relay no other
team had a chance to keep up with
the fast-stepping Ho9osiers. Trutt
forged to the front in the first leg
with a 4:22.2 mile. Then the big
Negro, Smith, brought the crowd to
its feet with a startling 4:14, the best
performance of his career. Deckard
stepped the distance in 4:22.7 and
Lash concluded with a 4:17.2 mile.
In a dual meet here last spring the
Racquet Supply Gone;
Budge Takes Holiday
SAN FRANCISCO, April 27.-(IP)-
Red-haired Don Budge would prac-
tice his tennis today for the Davis
Cup play against the Japanese start-
ing Friday, but he's all out of rac-
Budge, ranking No. 1 singles player
in the country, said he had broken his
entire supply of 1511 ounce ,rackets
but one or more is due from Chicago
While the Japanese, who will meet
the Americans here April 30 and May
1 and 2, walked up and down San
Francisco's hills in the rain yester-
day for exercise, the U. S. team took
things easy.
Gene Mako and Budge kept in trim
by playing basketball. Joe Hunt and
Frankie Parker went to the movies.
