PUSHED from the sport pages of
practically every newspaper by
the herculean efforts of Big Bill Wat-
son, but a real star in his own right,
Jake Townsend, the Big Ten's stand-
out basketball player, is also the sec-

ships. Coaches Charlie Hoyt and
Ken Doherty, believe that with a little
more work to bring greater speed
across the circle, Jake will be doing
49 feet by the time May 21 rolls
around. And his discus work,rhis
main fPrte, is steadily on the up-
grade. It will be a great surprise to
local track followers if Jake does not
exceed 150 feet before too long. In-
cidentally, Watson's throw of 152 feet
four in the discus is the best publicly
announced heave made by a college
man this spring. Sam Francis, Ne-
braska's All-American fullback and
Olympic weight man, did 149 plus at
Drake, and Stanford's perennially
outstanding troupe of strong men are
flirting with 150. Watson's perform-
ance in the shot Saturday alsc
marked him as the man to beat in
this event in the National Collegiates.
At 10:15 Tonight...
Tune your radio to WJR (750 kilo-
cycles) at 10:15 p.m. today and get
the low down on Michigan's baseball
team-maybe. At least, Coach Ray
Fisher and two of his stars, Herm
Fishman and Walt Peckinpaugh, are
to be interviewed by Harry Wismer,
Detroit's up-and-coming sports com-
mentator., ,What they will say, I do
not know-and they don't either.
But I'll guarantee that Harry's ques-
tions will keep Ray and his boys go-
ing. Your editor is also making the
trip, but promises to stay off the air.
By the way, Wismer is bringing quite
a collection of in-season celebrities of
the athletic world to his microphone
during the week at 10:15. Listen in
and you'll hearsome interesting dope
on major leaguers and others.
Strikes-But Not Out...
FROM BILL ELVIN, edit staff try-,
out, comes news of some very


bound Wolverines will be seekingj
their tenth win out of 13 games when]
they face a weak Michigan Normal3
team at 4 p.m. this afternoon on the
Hurons' home diamond.
Johnny Smithers will get the call'
to start on the mound for Michigan
and will probably be opposed by Fred1
Bailey or Burt Zacher. Today's con-
test will be the first that Smithers
has pitched for the Varsity nine. Burt1
Smith and John Gee will also see
service on the mound during the
Long Practice Held
Gee;and Chuck McHugh held the
Hurons to seven hits and three runs
last Friday while their teammates
were pounding the offerings of Bailey
and Zacher for eight hits and a 12-3
victory in the first meeting between
the two teams.
Fisher put his squad through
lengthy practice session yesterday.1
Chuck McHugh, working on the rub-
ber for the reserves looked good
against the Varsity batters as his fast
ball whipped across the plate in
great shape. "Lefty" Herring, pitch-
ing for the first stringers, also turned
in a capable exhibition. Pete Lisa-
gor led the reserve batting attack by
virtue of his mighty triple.
Frosh Meets Reserves
Herman Fishman, ace lefthander
who has pitched three of the Var-
sity's four Big Ten games, took the
role of umpire in today's practice.
Herm is being groomed to hurl eith-
er against Indiana on Friday or in the
all-important game with Illinois'sl
strong aggregation on Saturday.

Walter Peckinpaugh, Cleveland pro-1
duct, and son of the ex-manager of
the Cleveland Indians.7
Being thus imbued with a back-
ground of baseball tradition, the
young sophomore has proceeded to
carve his own niche out on the dia-
mond. And he means to continue
peddling his own papers.
Naturally one so close to the na-
tional pastime would cherish ambi-

the shadow of horsehide and blud-!
His long suit is along defensive;
lines. In competition this year, only
one error has been charged against;
him-an especially imposing feat for'
a third sacker. He is blessed ,with a

table fielding gem.
His hitting has him worried a bit.
During the spring trip in the South,
he pounded the apple for a cool .360
average, falling behind only Merle

Cleveland, a triple A nine, and hold-

If Walter ever breaks into the big

it will necessitate a lot of work, espe-
cially in his hitting. A hard worker,
a real plugger, and a genuine baseball
enthusiast, he stands a good chance
of making the grade.

Injury Will Keep Golf
Captain From State Tilt


I .
Due to a muscle injury received
while shooting an eagle on the 18th;
hole of last Saturday's match with
Ohio State to score a 69, Captain Al
Saunders of the golf team may not
be able to play Wedpesday against
Michigan State.
Although the injury was almost un-
noticeable Saturday it kept Saunders
from practice yesterday when he felt
it irritating him. Examination by
a doctor showed a pulled muscle in
his side.
Captain Saunders will probably be
in condition to make the trip to Il-
linois for the team's third Big Ten
meet but will need to rest and bake
his side during the week.
