------ 'y IRVIN LISACOR iiiiii
'attail Trai . ..
JACK THOM, energetic Union prexy1
and campus distributor of Clove
gum, supplied the Michigan baseball
team with several boxes of chicle for
its recent southern tour. And it might
prove to be a better investment than
even a billboard blurb, for the boys
left a trail of Clove wrappers through
Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Mary-
land and -the District of Columbia. In
fact, they chewed it to such excess
while traveling that Manager Dean
Glidden found a negligible quantity
left for ball field consumption. To
keep his throat from parching, Baron
Campbell went so far as to experi-
ment with a pinch of Mail Pouch, but
the weed made him a little uncer'-
tain of his stomach processes.
With an amusing experience to
go on, Jim Rae, Varsity cage
center, promises to make Coach
Charley Iloyt a fine 220 yard
and quarter mile contender. The
experience revolves around Big
Jim's efforts in the Intrafrater-
nity track meet a short time ago.
Green in the ways of a thinclad,
Jim entered the quarter mile for
the Chii Psi lodge and from the
opening gun sped around the
oval at top speed. le ran like
mad for one lap and negotiated
--thank his lucky star-a com-
manding lead. But his pace was
killing, and toward the end of the
race his legs appeared' to pick up
leaden weights and he almost
staggered across the finish line,
where an alert mate grabbed him
to preven)t a total collapse.
Uricek Catches On . .
Steve Uricek, Varsity infielder last
season, is reported to have signed
a professional contract finally. Our
informer knew not with whom he
signed nor where he's headed. But
Steve will do all right by himself.
This spring the pudgy Flint star took
a flyer into the south, appearing at
several training camps on his own
hook, sans the advance notice. That's
the toughest' entrance into O.B., but
Steve possesses an asset which every
good ball player must have-confi-
dence in his own ability. As a col-
lege player, Steve actually taunted
pitchers to push one by him. Normal-
ly unassuming, he was downright
cocky with a stick of hickory in his
But Steve has had -a sore arm
for several years now, and his
s p e e d hasn't approximated
zephyr proportions either. These
two handicaps were offset at
Michigan by his superior hitting
ability, but under the big top,
they are prime requisites. Bill
McKechnie, Cincinnati boss and
one of the shrewdest talent
judges in the business, was Im-
pressed with Uricek's fielding
grace and batting, but frankly
told him his arm prevented fur-
ther consideration as a third
baseman and his lack of speed
as a second sacker. But with
charateristic perserverance, Steve
is determined to overcome both
handicaps. If he succeeds, we'll
bear from him, for he's gifted
with a keen baseball sense.
Michigan alumni of Fort Worth,
Texas, will hold a "Yost Birthday
Party" April 30 to commemorate the
67th birthday of Michigan's athletic
director. While Yost cannot be pres-
ent, a gigantic enlargement of his
portrait, three feet high, will occupy
the place of honor at the table.

sprint, pole vault, weight and middle
distance relay strength. Indiana will
still be puzzled as to how to stretch
Deckard, Smith, Miller, Hicks and
Elliott over a full outdoor card.
Ohio State is reinforced by a pair
of speed merchants in the persons of
Paul Garret, absent most of the in-
door season with a pulled muscle,
and Chuck Walker, brother of last
years great high jumper, who lately
cleared the scholastic barrier. Walk-
er also performs at the quarter-mile
and broad jump.
Besides Walker and Garret the
Bucks boast Bob Lewis, fourth in the
Big Ten 220 last year, and a 9.8 flyer
in the century. Dave Albritton,
Olympic high jumper, will work in
his speciality against Michigan's Wes
Allen and in the high hurdles. He
may also run a leg on the Snyder
half-mile relay four.
Ohio Strong In Distance
In the distance and middle dis-
tance relays Ohio will offer combina-
tions comprised of Harley Howells
and Bob Zulman in the double fur-
long, Dick Squire and Bob Cooper-
rider, 880 workrhen Paul Benner and
Jim Whittaker in tlle distance grinds,
all names to be reckoned with.
Notre Dame will present as their
feature performer, Big Ed Beinor, All
American tackle, 48 foot shot put-
ter and adept discus hurler. His co-
hort in the weights, Bill Faymon-
ville, is also better than capable.
Bill Clifford, the greatest sprint-I
er ever to wear the green, is good for
nine, seven or eight in the century,
and 21.5 in the 220. Greg Rice, na-
tional two-mile champion does the
distances for the Irish while John
Francis and Capt. Pat Mahoney pro-
vide for the 880 and quarter. Dan
Gibbs, with a 13 feet 6 inches to his
credit, will be .a real threat to Michi-
gan's Jim Kingsley.
Hicks Returns To Hoosiers
Indiana will use their customary
four or five man team somewhat
strengthened by the addition of Mal-
colm Hicks, second outdoors in the
Big Ten 440, who has lately recovered
from a tendon injury. Always tough
in the distances and middle distance
relays, the Hoosiers may find the
law of diminishing returns harder to
beat than any of the three teams they
The squad for the meet follows:
Bill Watson, Stan Kelley, Raph
Schwarzkopf, Dye Hogan, Tom Jes-
ter, Carl Culver, Fred Culver, Norm
Purucker, Jim Kingsley, Dave Cush-

Derby Entry Runs
Fast Mile In Trial
LOUISVILLE, April 21.-(IP)-Mrs.
Payne Whitney's Gangplank, prep-
ping for the Kentucky Derby, covered
a mile very handily in 1:42 2-5 at
Churhill Downs today. The bay colt
by Dis Donc-Conge, was clocked in

24 4-5, 50 1-5 and 1:16 3-5.
Despite bright sunshine and cool:
weather today after a cloudy day of
April showers, few Derby eligibles ap-
peared on the historic track. Lawrin
was sent over the mile, but continued
to display reluctance to morning
workouts that some thoroughbreds
have. He was clocked in 24, 49 '4-5
and 1:16 2-5 at the quarters, satis-
factorily enough but slowed down
and ended the mile in 1:44 2-5.

Past Records In Danger
As Doherty's Charges
Run In Three Meets
The annual attack on freshman
outdoor track records will be inaug-
urated May 7 this year, that date
marking the first spring competition
for Coach Ken Doherty's charges.
Wisconsin will provide the opposition
in this first meet, followed by Illinois
a week later. A.triangular meet with
Ohio State and Indiana will wind up
the season May 21.
Frosh marks in the dashes and dis-
tance runs look to be fairly safe.
None of Doherty's sprinters appear
to be good enough to lower the 100
yard dash record of :09.9, held joint-
ly by Sam Stoller, DeHart Hubbard
and Alan Smith or Roy Heath's 21.2
for the 220. Joe Daniels, who ran
4:30 indoors, may be a serious threat
to Ralph Schwartzkopf's mark of
4:24 for the mile set up last year.
Jack Leutritz, the big Saginaw ath-
lete who ran so well indoors, is point-
ing for the records in both the 440
and 880. Ross Faulkner's 50 sec-
onds flat in the quarter and Tommy
Jester's 1:56.4 for the half are the
marks he has to beat. Both Faulkner
and Jester are present Varsity main-
Jeff Hall has his work cut out for
him if he is to do any record-breaking
in the hurdles as he follows in 'he
wake of such great hurdlers as Bob
Osgood and Stan Kelley, who lowered
the frosh records over the sticks to
quite an appreciable extent. *His best
chance looks to be in the 220 lows
where Kelley's 24.2 is the low mark.
Doherty lost a potential record-
breaker javelin thrower in Gil Wie-
gand, who has left school, and the

Francis "Dye" Hogan is one of
the two sophomore half-milers who
will run for Michigan in tomor-
row's quadrangular meet. "Dye,"
who last year finished a step be-
hind Tom Jester's record-making
freshman effort at this distance,
has not as yet acquired any i- I
dividual laurels in Varsity compe-
tition, but he was a member of;
Michigan's winning two-mile relay
team at the Butler Relays.
Behind the six hit hurling of big
Johnny Gee, the Syracuse Stars took
their opening game of the Interna-
tional League season from. Montreal,I
3-1. Gee, six foot nine inen south-'
paw, hurled for Ray Fisher's Varsity
nine last spring and was signed byI
Syracuse upon graduation.

Tigers, Giants, Red Sox, Dodgers Win

CHICAGO, April 21.-(UP)-De-
troit's Tigers won their first victory'
of the new American League season
today, defeating the Chicago White
Sox, 9 to 3, behind Elden Auker's
seven-hit pitching.
The Tigers, who dropped the first
two games of the opening series to
the White Sox, combined eight hits
with passes and three errors in the
last five innings for their winning
Hank Greenberg, the Tigers' slug-
ging first baseman, hit a terrific
smash off the left field pavilion roof
in the sixth for his second homer
of the campaign.
NEW YORK, April 21.-(ZP)-King
Carl Hubbell, masterful as ever in the
pinches, opened his 1938 pitching
campaign today by hurling the
Giants to a 3 to 2 victory over the
Boston Bees. Al Cuccinello tagged
Hubbell for a homer, but otherwise
he was rarely in trouble. Hank Lei-
ber hit for the circuit for New York,
BOSTON, April 21.--(A1)-The Red
Sox made only three hits to the New
York Yankees' 13 today, but those
three safeties coupled with obliging
wildness on the part of rival pitch-
ers, were enough to give Tom Yaw-
key's millionaires a 3 to 2 decision
over the World Champions.
ST. LOUIS, April 21.-(A')=-The

J. J. O'KANE, Dist. Dial 3500

Pittsburgh Pirates made a clean
sweep of their season opening series
with the Cardinals by taking the
third and final game today by a score
of 6 to 5.
CINCINNATI, April 21.-(/P)--Paul
Derringer of the Cincinnati Reds lim-
ited Chicago to four hits today while
his mates garnered 13 off of Tex Car-
leton to win' 6 to 2. It was the
first Cincinnati victory of the season.
It was the Cubs' initial setback,
