Diamond, Net Teams Are Active At Champaign This


Faces Illinois Today

Coach Ray Fisher's choice to
face Wally Roettger's Illinois club
this afternoon at Champaign is
lanky Eddie Andronik, senior right-
hander. Andronik is the only mem-
ber of the hurling corps to date
who has pitched a complete game,
being credited with a one-hit mas-
terpiece against V.M.I.
I-M Baseball
Season Starts
Sigma Chi Wins Opener;
Long Hurls One-Hitter,
Aided by Phi Gamma Delta errors,
Sigma Chi, defending champions in
the I-M fraternity baseball league,
successfully opened their campaign
yesterday defeating the Phi Gams
With the score tied 3-3 in the sixth,
Frank Harrington cracked out a
long single to left and went on to
score the winning run when the Phi
Gam outfielders booted the ball. Bill
Cochran of Sigma Chi was the win-
ning pitcher.
Scoring eight runs in the fifth,
Phi Delta Theta, point leadIers in
the all-year competition, won their
first game whipping Phi Kappa Tau
19-15. Gridder Jack Meyer hurled for
the winners.
With most of this year's hockey
team on their rostrum, the Coe A.C.
beat the Pink Elephants 11-5 yester-
day in an independent division game.
Bill Andalova of the Coe team col-
lected two homers and a double in
three times up.

pleted, Dick Long of Delta Kappa Ep-
silon, turned in the greatest pitching
feat when he blanked Sigma Alpha

ing but three and striking out sev-
enteen batters in the six inning game.
Phi Kappa Sigma broke a long
standing I-M scoring record also this
week when they drubbed Alpha Kap-
pa Sigma 30-5 in a four inning fray.
Led by John Maytham who clouted
out a triple, double and a single, the
Phi Kappa Sigma team scored six
runs in the first, one in the second,
ten in the third and thirteen in the
fourth. The game was called at the
end of the fourth because of an I-M
regulation which forbids a game to
go beyond four innings after one of
the teams has scored more than
fifteen runs.

Weirmen Face
Veteran F oes
In Road Tests
Levenson To Play Number
One For Wolverine Team
Against Hoosiers, Illini
Michigan's Varsity net team, an-
xious to cast off the shroud of me-
diocrity which has enveloped Wol-
verine tennis squads the past ump-
steen seasons, take the courts today
and tomorrow in the season's initial
contests against Conference foes.
They, with Indiana and Illinois,
play in a round robin at Champaign
this week-end. Today the Wolver-
ines take on the Hoosiers and tomor-
row meet the Illini.
While Coach Leroy Weir's men en-
ter the two matches with little ad-
vance information on the strength
of the two squads to go on, they ex-
pect little difficulty in taking the
matches in stride.
Have Four Veterans
The Hoosiers, who failed to pro-
duce' much last season, boast a squad
of four men from the '37 team, three
sophomores, and a freshman num-
eral winner of two seasons ago. John
Tuthill and Capt. Vic Kingdom, who
play in the number one and two
spots respectively in the singles and
pair up for the number one doubles
team, are the best bets on the squad.
Like the Wolverines, the Illini
have been practically without benefit
of outdoor practice so far this year.
Spring rains have kept the outdoor
courts almost continually under wa-
ter, while poor lighting in the Armory
has allowed Coach John Utley's men
only a minimum of indoor practice.,
Illini Squad Intact
The Illinois squad remains prac-
tically intact from last season, with
five regulars in Capt. Bill McCoy,
John Schuder, Warren Confer, Eb
Jones and Tim Twerdel as a nucleus.
The Michigan squad is the same as
that which saw most action on the
eastern trip. In the singles Capt.
Neil Levinson, Don Percival, Tom
Slattery, Hank Cohen, Steve Woolsey
and John Kidwell will rank in that
order. Levenson and Percival, Slat-
tery and Cohen, and Woolsey and
Kidwell pair up for the one, two,
and three doubles respectively.
Tennis And Horseshoes
Tourneys Start Today
Play will begin today in the I-M
spring horseshoes tourney for inde-
pendent men, and the tennis tourney
is slated to start tomorrow in the
independent and fraternity divisions.
Men interested in entering the all
campus horseshoes singles and
doubles tourney and the golf tourna-
ment are given until April 25 to get
in their entries and May 6 is the
deadline for the archery tournament.

My Biggest



Michigan Football Coach
John Weller was a real guard and
a true Florida southerner. On the
football field, he starred for Prince-
ton, gaining All-American recogni-
tion in 1934. A trifle short tempered,
he was dead serious about his foot-
Princeton was playing Cornell
in 1934 in a stiff game, closely
contested throughout. At one
point, Cornell sent in a sub
guard to play against Weller. We
had the ball, the team came for-
ward over the ball, and Weller,
ready to warm up the newcomer
with a good block, looked up
tensely at his opponent.
The new man stared at Weller and
pleasantly inquired:
"You John Weller?"
"Yeah," was the surprised and an-
noyed reply.
"Well, your gal down in Florida
sends her regards," replied the new
fellowv with a wink.
Weller's Southern temper really
hit a new high then.
