Gee Hurls No Hit Game As Varsity Nine Downs Hillsdd

HERM FISHMAN, rotund south-
paw, whom teammates call
"Spanky McFishman," complained
about the item in yesterday's column
which stated that John Gee was a
topnotch tennis player . Herm
claims he's challenged Long John to
a match for two years now, but the
big boy won't accept . .. Herm was
singles champion in the junior .di-
vision several years ago ...
Bernie Bierman must believe
in the football cycle, for when in-
formed of the Minnesota-Ohio
State grid renewal in 1939, he re-
marked, "We'll probably be at
the bottom then." ... Jesse Flick
and Jarvis Dean, Varsity netters,
broke their racquets while play-
ing doubles in the Conference
tennis meet last week-which is
victory spirit, anyhow ... Walter
Stone, winner of the Penn Relay
steeplechase last year, ineligible
for competition this season, re-
fused to reveal his employer's
name when interviewed on the
air during the Big Ten track
meet, because he thought it would
be free advertising .. .
Bob Wants A Day...
HAROLD MANDERS, Iowa's soph-
omore right-hander, who lost a
5-3sdecision to the Wolverines earlier
this year, is a cousin of Bob Feller
and when in high school, invariably
bested the Cleveland star, who
pitched for a rival school . .. Freddie
Trosko, Michigan's white hope on the
gridiron next fall, was never injured
in three years of high school play,
despite his apparently slight phy-
When the Wolverines played Illi-
nois a couple of weeks ago, it was
"Reinhart Day," as hometown folks
honored the Illini left fielder by pre-
senting him with a gladstone bag ...
The idea had- such appeal for Bob
Campbell, Ionia's gift to the Varsity
,outfield, that he has instituted a
drive for a "Campbell Day," hoping
that the folks might hear about it and
give him a grip or something.
A singing teammate suggested
to Steve Uricek that his voice
sounded somewhat like Caruso's
. . "Yeh," piped Steve, "Robin-

J OHN GEE'S no-run, no-hitter
against Hillsdale yesterday marks
the first time he has released the
strings on his fast ball all season.
Some temperamental defect had pre-
vented him from unwinding and pop-
ping his hard one over, and time and
again he'd find himself on the skids
for that reason. Normally, John's
zip ball has more hop on it than
most pitchers operating on amateur
standards,.and he can blow it by most
collegiate hitters. But he seemed
afraid to do it. Maybe yester.day's
performance will help convince him
of the fact.
'Bean Ball' Puts
NEW YORK, May 25.-(P)-Gor-
don (Mickey) Cochrane, manager of
the Detroit Tigers, was in "serious
condition" at St. Elizabeth's Hospital
tonight, from a skull fracture suffered
when he was "beaned" by one of
Bump Hadley's pitches during to-
day's game between the Tigers and
New York Yankees.
Dr. Robert E. Walsh, the Yankees
club physician, said an x-ray exam-
ination revealed a definite skull frac-
ture on his left temple.
Cochrane was resting quietly, how-
ever, at 10 p.m. (E.S.T.) Dr. Walsh
said, and there was little prospect of
a turn for the worse tonight.
His condition had remained un-
changed since he was brought to the
hospital late this afternoon.
Cochrane was injured in the fifth
inning of the game after he had hit
a home run in the third. He tried to
duck away from a fast pitch that
came up high and on the inside but
failed to get out of the way.

HILLSDALE, Mich., May 25.-
(Special to The Daily)-Behind no

University of Michigan Varsity base-
ball team defeated the Hillsdale Col-
lege nine here today, 3-0.
Gee, tall, lanky Wolverine hurler,
turned in one of the finest games of
his career as he fanned 12 of the 'Dale
batsmen. Relying almost entirely on
a fast ball, Gee had

Gee issued was to Charland who

mashed into a double play. Peckin-'

The Wolverines did all of their'

ogether two singles, a double and a
wo base error for three runs. After
3ee had rolled out to the pitcher and
Peckinpaugh had struck out, Lisagor
ingled to left and Beebe banged a
me-base knock through shortstop.
Uricek then hit a hot one just inside
third-base line which got through
leftfielder Platt for a two-base error
;coring all three of the Wolverines.
Michigan threatened to score in the
third inning when Harold Floersch
tot on base when Smith dropped his
fly in center field and Walt Peckin-
paugh singled over second. On the
first pitch to Lisagor, however, the
runners attempted a double steal and
?loersch was trapped between third

Dual Meets Scheduledi
Before Season Ends
Neil Levenson, '38E, was elected
captain of the 1938 tennis team yes-
terday by the members of this year's
squad. He succeeds Miller Sherwood,
the varsity's number one singles and
doubles man this season.
Playing in the number five spot
most of the season, Levenson posted
one of the best showings of the sea-
son. In dual meets played this sea-
son he won six out of ten singles
matches and seven out of nine
doubles. In the Conference meet with
Bill Woolsey in the third flight
doubles he gained the semi-final
round to give the Wolverines one of
their five points gained in the meet.
Two of the singles losses were
against Northwestern's Marv Wach-
man, who won the finals in the sec-
ond flight singles of the Big Ten
meet, and against John Shostrum of
Chicago, who took the fifth flight
championship last weekend. The two
doubles losses were also to Maroon
and Wildcat players, who also won
championships in the finals.
Levenson, with Bill Mills and Bill
Woolsey, regulars this year, and
Bill Smith, Don Percival, an-1 John
Kidwell, alternates, will form the
nucleus of next year's squad.
Coach Johnstone's men have con-
tinued practice this week in the hope
that the two remaining dual meets
which were scheduled for earlier in
the season and postponed several
times on account of rain will be
played before final exams start.
