Don Brewer at short and Walt
Peckinpaugh at third, completed the
Varsity infield, while Captain Merle
Kremer was at his customary center
field post.
Gedeon seemed at home at his new
position and he had little trouble
taking care of thessecond base sec-
tor. On one occasion he started a
double play by spearing a line drive
and whipping it to Smick to double
the man on first.
Smick has been working on his
pitching all spring, but because of his
hitting power, he may see consider-
able service at first, the position he
held down last season.
Reserve Line-Up
The reserve infield had Howard
Greenberg on first, Joe Paulus on
third, Bob Plasters and Lou Levine
alternating on second and Mike Rod-
nick and Earl Smith dividing the
shortstopping duties. Les Brauser
and Forest Evashevski did the catch-

performed creditably. All except
Herring are sophomores, and two,
Rapdall and Herring, are southpaws,
who along with Herm Fishman com-
prise the only portsiders on the squad
this year.
Defensively the squad is playing a
good brand of ball but the hitting to
date is somewhat discouraging. The
cause for the poor hitting may be
due to the fact that the batters have
yet to become thoroughly accustomed
to the difference in lighting between
the Field House and outdoors.

Strike One-Called . . .
TOM MEANY, the New York base-
ball writer whom National League
partisans are calling more pointed
names than "the Old Meany," really
touched off an argument with his
magazine article, "New Minor League
- The National?" Such sharp-
tongued m-g-rs as Burleigh Grimes
and Bill Terry resent Meany's im-
plications. In fact, you could drive
a turbine with their harnessed rage.
Though Meany dug into those irre-
futable statistics to prove presumably
his contention', he missed fire on one
We owe this information to
Chicago Daily News Sports Ed-
itor Lloyd Lewis, author, drama-
tic critic, historian and active
propagandist for the senior loop.
To Meany's charge that when an
American Leaguer's arches sink
and his eyes become perceptibly
dull he can transfer allegiance to
the National circuit and proceed
to star for several years, Lewis
casts a column of scorn. Meany
mentions Dick Coffman, the ex-
Brown who pitched 80 innings for
the Giants last year. "'But," in-
tercedes Lewis, "does he mention
Pat Malone, the ex-Cub who
pitched 92 innings for the Yan-
kees? Not at all."
And thus it goes. Lewis tosses his
journalistic colleague, though not
crony, one Pete Appleton, "who
pitched 113 innings for Cincinnati
and then was fired but who has been
working in around 36 games a year
for Washington in late seasons." To
Meany's statement that the American
is better than the National because
Heinie Manush hit .333 last year for
Brooklyn after 14 years in the young-
er league, Lewis counters, "But does
he refer to Jim Bottomley, who was
fired from the National League at the
end of 14 years and yet who played
140 games the next season for the
Browns and hit .298?"
Lewis missed a cue in the Man-
ush case by failing to note the
deteriorating effect Brookyn fans
have on visiting pitchers. "But I
-see nothing in Meany's article,"
continues Lewis, "about Rollie

Ilemsley, who played six years in
the National, then went over to
the junior circuit to catch more
than 100 games a year for the
last four years. Nor do I find Mr.
Meany mentioning Tony Piet
(note Detroiters) who at the end
of his fifth National year was cut
adrift by the lowly Reds to be
picked up by the White Sox, for
whom he played 100 games in '36
and in '37."
To clinch a case, Lewis took a list of
men in both leagues who played in
20 or more games last year and this
is what he found:

After my first season as football
coach here at Michigan, and also my;
point-a-minute team, we accepted an
offer to play in the Rose Bowl, against
We took fifteen men to the
roast-just four subs. We went
from a temperature of tcn below
zero at Ann Arbor to a tempera-
ture of 85 above for the game. We
played on a dirt field with no sod,
in a black dust throughout. We
didn't take any water from home.
Eleven Michigan men started and
finished the game. Our four substi-
tutes were not used. And Stanford-
supremely confident--left the field
14 minutes before the end of the
game with the score 49-0. This in-
cluded a rest period we allowed them
when their 23 men had exhausted
That was a team. It included
such men as Heston, Herrnstein,
Boss Weeks, Sweeley, Neil Snow,
Dad Gregory, Dan McGugin and
hugh White. I'll never forget it.
Dartmouth football players have
undertaken to prove that the adage
"you gotta be a football hero" still
holds true. Last year, Hank Whit-
taker, '37, and John Merril, '37, both
copped high honors in the matri-
monial circle by marrying beauty

Probably the two best laughs I
ever had came out of that. game. A
few days before, I had asked Coach
Fisher of Stanford to cut. five min-
utes off the regular halves. He in -
sisted that they be the regulation 35
minutes. With our small squad, the
weather, and his big bunch you
couldn't blame him. And when it
was all over, it was Stanford who
had to quit.
Also up to that game everyone
on the team had scored that sea-
son but Gregory.. So I shifted my
lineup and put him in the back-'
field. During the game when we
approached the goal they called
Gregory's signal. Ie was so anx-
ious to get across, thatl he started
before the ball was snapped, had
to back up, missed the exchange
from the quarterback, and dove

"'Just too fast for that bckfield.
