apparel betray the seasons. To a
long-isolated person suddenly pro-
jected upon S. Ferry Field, the ac-
tivity would suggest sere leaves and
hidden flasks in row 43. For Coach
Fritz Crisler and his staff daily direct
80-some candidates through their
spring training routine with a scheme
as purposeful and precisely organ-
ized as the goose-step military stomp.
The casual bystander is in-
stantly impressed with the effi-
ciency, of Crisler and his aides.
There are no lulls in the daily
script. Like the director of some
epic, Crisler himself stands apart
from the group, surveying the
whole scene, occasionally noting
some miscue, charging his as-
sistants with their continuity.
Even the uninformed onlooker
can readily determine the head
man here. There is a delegation
of tasks, to be sure, for the assist-
ants are specialty men, fully
equipped to coach the backs, ends
and other linemen; but there is
no division of authority. Crisler
issues the ultimate orders, tacitly
expects their prompt discharge.
His is a job of integrating. Al-
though yesterday was only the third
day of practice, he organized elevens
for the first time, illustrated four
plays. And while the boys executed
them somewhat haphazardly-which
is to be expected-Crisler's assistants
stood by, offering a few whispered
suggestions now and then but strict-
ly attentive as the head man com-
mented and pointed out flaws.
That Crisler commands the re-
£pect of his men was indicated
yesterday when he asked for sil-
ence. The men listened intently.
Once when someone failed to
heed the demand, Crisler turned
and glared, then repeated his re-
quest. A respectful silence greet-
ed him.
It's strictly business with the new
staff. Anyone harboring doubts may
park himself along State Street an
evening after practice and watch the
parade of gridders up the avenue.
Limping figures, skinned faces, dis-
colored eyes, broken teeth-the trade
marks of the sport-are the rul
rather than the exception. Archi

will be any but of the monkey variety.
The 'Eyes' Have It .. .
BOB CAMPBELL tells about the
co-ed who visited the Health
Service to have her eyes inspect-
ed. She didn't think they were
bad, but wanted to reassure her-
self. The doctor placed a pla-
card upon the wall, and said,
"All right, now we'll test your
eyes. See if you can read these
letters upon the wall."
Without hesitation, the gal re-
plied, "What wall?"

On New Shift
At Spring Drill

Six Men To Form Team
For Southern Trip
With little more than a week left.
before vacation, Coach LeRoy Weir's
Varsity netters are hard at work
battling for positions on the six-man
squad making the first annual
southern practice trip this year.
Of the dozen men who are working
'lout, only three or four are almost
certain to make the tour. Most of
the others rank practically on a par,
and consequently must show the best
of their wares this week to get a
chance at the remaining positions.
Final choice of the men who will
make up the squad which will make
the trip, and who will possibly see
most play in Conference competition,
will be made the early part of next
week, according to Coach Weir.
I The present squad will leave on its
5-game trip Sunday, April 10, its
first meeting being with St. John's
College at Annapolis on April 11.

Linksmen Compete
For Southern Tour
Twenty aspirants for positions on
the Varsity golf team will get a first
chance to prove their status this
afternoon over the University course.
From the cards turned in Coach Ray
Courtright expects to gain a good
idea of the squad's strength and the
results will also determine to a cer-
tain extent what ten men will make
the southern trip over spring vaca-
The entire course is expected to be
available for todays play.
The following men will compete:
Captain Al Karpinski, Bill Barclay,

Phi Delta Theta gained a stronger
grip on fraternity track supremacy
at Yost Field House last night when
they amassed 24 points to add the
interfraternity indoor track crown to
their outdoor victory of last fall. Chi
Psi, with 17 points, nosed out defend-
ing champions Phi Gamma Delta for
second place by one-fourth of a point.
The Has Beens, with four first places,
easily annexed the independent crown
although no official announcement of
point totals have yet been made in
this division.
Cooper Wins Hurdles
Jack Cooper of Sigma Chi started'
out the evening's events with a one
foot victory over Morrie Anderson, a
Phi Gam, in the high hurdles, with
the relatively slow time of :10. Harry
Lyon,of Zone I, after leading all the
way in the independent highs, had
just enough left to nose out Charles
Bowers of Zone III in :09.9.
One of the evening's upsets took
place in the fraternity 60-yard dash.
Bill White. a Phi Delt, nosed out
Brooks Buderus, Chi Psi's defending
champion and Tom Harmon, another
Phi Delt, in a blanket finish. The
time was :06.7. In the independent
counterpart of the race, Charles
Shaw and Pat Patterson, both Hgs
Beens, ran one-two in :06.8.
Jim Rae Stars
Jim Rae, of Chi Psi and sophomore
basketball regular, was the individual
star of the evening with firsts in the
440-yard run and the broad jump. In
the 440, Rae, who had never run
the distance before, started out like
a scared rabbit and opened up a 20-
yard lead on the first lap. He faded
badly on the last lap but the gap wa
too large for Jack Overton, Theta
Chi, to make up. The time was :55.8
In the broad jump, Rae leaped 20
feet 1 inch to beat Buderus of Chi
Psi, who won his second second of the
Fager Breaks Record
The meet's only record breaking
came in the Independent's Mile Run
when John Fager won by abou 100
yards in 4.42.4. This bettered both
the five year old independent record
of 4.48:6 and the eight year old fra-
ternity mark of 4.43:2.
A minor upset occurred in the fra-
ternity low hurdles when Bob Holt, a
Phi Gam, breasted the tape inches
ahead of Tom Harmon. The winner's
time of :08.1 was one tenth of a sec-
ond slower than Harmon's heat win-
ning effort. Bob Cooper, after plac-
ing second to Jack Chapman of Ps
U in the pole vault, aggrevated an old
football knee injury in the heat of the
low hurdles and was forced out of the
Football players had their day
when Ced Sweet, another Has Been
nosed out Henry Clauser of Fletcher
Hall in the lows in :08.5. Don Siegel
of Sigma Chi put the shot 39 feet
61/2 inches to beat out freshman foot-
baller Paul Meyer, a Phi Delt, and
Butch Jordan, a Phi Gam, in the
fraternity competition.

The baseball team is apparently
like the greyhound-they've got to
have the old incentive.
One of the tougher problems facing
Coach Ray Fisher this year is con-
ditioning. The boys usually need
some prodding to get in the leg work
so essential to a ball player's success.
Yesterday Fisher may have got an
idea. In the midst of hitting drill,
a shout came from one of the players
and a host of teammates began dash-
ing madly around the field. More
players joined, all running at top
speed to catch up to their prey.
It was a rabbit, and although out-
numbered, it escaped after a merry
chase. The pursuers returned to
practice, Fisher smiled, and last seen
was heading south in search for a net,
some traps and a club. Bring 'em
back alive, coach!
Fisher Makes
Lineup Shifts
Lisagor And Trosko Fight*
For Keystone Job
Lineup shifts were still prevalent
yesterday as Coach Ray Fisher sent
his baseball candidates through a
light fielding drill and a prolonged
batting practice.
Following his shift of Tuesday,
which sent Dan Smick from first base
to combined pitching and outfield
duty and Elmer Gedeon to the initial
sack, Fisher indicated that diminu-
tive Freddie Trosko might be switched
from the outfield to second base.
Trosko worked in that position
briefly yesterday and proved that he
is no novice in the field. A good hit-
ter, he may put in a strong bid for
the post.
At preserft, Pete Lisagor, who saw
service at this post last year, has
the inside track in the job race. A
good defensive man, Lisagor has been
weak at the plate in earlier drills al-x
though yesterday he was hitting the
ball consistently. Lisagor plays eith-
er short or second, and if he continues
to improve at the plate, may put in
a serious bid for the former position.


My- Biggest

(Michigan Tennis Coach) I
A few years ago, I was playing
Helen Wills Moody in Cincinnati. I
finally had her match point and
smacked over a pretty good, cross
court shot, an impossible get. Mrs.
Moody, a real gamester, dashed after
the ball, stumbled, and landed in the
usual place. It was a brave but use-,
less effort.
After the match, I was making
a phone call and happened to
leave the door of the booth open.
Using the phone next to me was a
girl society reporter phoning her
boss, who seemed to be a pretty
hard boiled lad.
She was stammering, hesitating,
vainly making excuses and finally
the conversation reached quite a
pitch. At last the cause of the argu-
ment came out. The press; always
after the last ounce of news, was
asking, and the poor girl reporter was
hemming and hawing, over the deli-
cate question-where had Mrs. Moody
fallen on the last shot?
