L SCHHT, one of baseball's
told this story, but it always bears
iat Brooklyn Influence
"I am pitching a ballgame one day
for Newark and Bill Donovan is man-
aging the club. I am going exceed-
ingly bad on account of I have been
out socializing the night before. I fi-
nally tell Donovan, when the score
is 11 to 0 against me that I do not
think I am fooling the hitters. But
Donovan is not in a very sympathetic
mood. He says, 'You're going to
pitch the whole game if they get 50
runs offrn you.'

Smick's Texas leaguer and after
Smith beat out an infield roller for
a hit, scored an a passed ball. In
the eighth Leo Beebe walked, stole
second, went to third on Pink's hit
and scored on Brewer's fly to deep
Two runs were pushed across in the
ninth when, with one out, Pete Lisa-
got batted for Ed Andronik, dropped
a single into short left, and scored
when the shortstop fumbled Trosko's
slow roller. Trosko went to third
unnoticed on the next two pitches
and came home on a fly to center
After their seven-run splurge in the
first inning, Illinois, led by Jack
Berner who gathered three hits in
four attempts, whittled off a run in
the fourth, three in the fifth, two
in the seventh and one in the eighth.
Kelley Leads Hurdlers
"All.the time the good people
in the stands--we are playing
Buffalo in Buffalo-are hollering,
'Take that big bum out,' which
was flattering at that because at
that time I do not weigh 140
pounds with a false beard. Any
way, they keep on hollering and
I speak as follows: 'Donovan has
told me that I am going to pitch
the whole game no matter what
happens, so if you want to stay
here and waste your time, don't
say I didn't warn you.'
"Well, along about the sixth
or seventh when the score is 19-2,
practically a pitcher's battle for
me, I get on first base. I am not
on base two seconds when the
pitcher makes a quick throw to
catch me off, thinking I am Ty
Cobb or something, and there is
a mixup. I slide into the bag,
While lying in the dust I feel
around and find a bump in my
ribs. It is the ball
"Well, this gives me an Inspira-
tion. I manage to work the ball into
my pants pocket and when I get up
the first baseman is bewildered. I
pause a moment and then I shoot for
second base. The second baseman
shouts for the ball, but there is no
ball. I slide into second and am safe.
Another pause and I'm off for third
and then home.
"By this time the umps are wacky,
too, so when I slide into the plate I
work.-the ball out of my pocket and
get up to go to the bench, and what
does that umpire behind the bat do
but call me out. This required quick
thinking so I say: 'You can't do that.
Look! The catcher dropped the ball!.
Is it any wonder people say I look
DOTS AND DASHES - Con-
gratulations to Michigan's Fred
Martin, who heaved the javelin
196 feet, seven and one-half
inches in yesterday's quadran-
guiar track meet . . . best he's
done yet ... Recommended to-
day-Detroit vs. Cleveland at
Briggs Stadium with Bob.Feller
and George Gill tangling.. . the
19 year old Iowan, they say, isn't
throwing them as fast this year,
but he's using his bean and de-
veloping a curve to advantage ...
i.e. his one hit seasonal debut
against the Browns last week.
One of the local aviation enthus-
lasts insisted he could see Michigan's
line opening up holes in scrimmage
yesterday . . . he was 750 feet above
proceedings . . . Falstaff, our gargan-
tuan correspondent, just dropped in
egging on all comers for a bet on
the Michigan - Minnesota football
battle next fall . . . claims he has
the dope on the Gophers, and it's
plenty foreboding ... Has Gee Walker
reformed? The ex-Detroiter has been
surprisingly quiet this year . . . no
head shave, not caught off base yet,
etc .. . The Henry Armstrong-Barney
Ross scrap next month should be a
wow . . . the wiseacres insist Hurri-
cane Henry will be bothered plenty
by Barney's craft . . . Insists Eddie
Meade, rotund Armstrong manager:'
"Ross-oh, we'll handle him all right.
His style is just right for Henry. The
guy we're worrying about is Lou Am-
bers, whom we meet in June. He'll be

Stan Kelley,-sophomore hurdler
from Lakewood, Ohio, won his first
race as a Wolverine yesterday at
Bloomington when he took the 120
yard high hurdles in 15.4 seconds.
By HERB LEV
Only the first week of outdoor.
practice has been completed, but
freshman baseball Coach Bennie
Oosterbaan already has every rea-
son to be optimistic about his pros-
peets for the season.
In the first place, more than 80
candidates turned out for the team
twice the number who reported last
A pair of right-handers, Les Veigel
of Tuscarawas, Ohio, and Felix Kar-
wales of Chicago, have already prov-
en themselves exceptionally fine
pitching prospects, two of the best
in recent years in fact. There are
at least a half dozen others around,
almost as good.
Charley Ross, of Cambridge, Mass.,
Stu Japinga of Detroit and Maynard
Stoddard of Davidson. Michigan are
other right-handers to be reckoned
with, while Neil Muir of Dryden,
Michigan is the outstanding south-
paw hurler on the squad.
This spring there is no lack of
infield candidates as was the case
in 1937. Second baseman Bill Step-
pan, of Detroit, has already estab-
lished himself as a future star, field-
ing his position superbly and hitting
with the best. Gil Sauer from Buf-
falo also has his eye on the key-
stone berth, and is hitting well.
Cage Stars In Infield
Two freshman basketball stars of
the past season. GeorgedRuehle and
Mike Sofiak, are ticketed for infield
berths. Ruehle, a big fellow from
Detroit has first base all to himself
while Sofiak, diminutive Gary, In-
diana star, is a leading shortstop
candidate. His main competition for
this post will come from the hard-
hitting Dick Gorecki, Detroit red-
Third-baseman Art Birgeson, from
Ridgely Park, Pa., has proven him-
self a classy fielder, but his hitting
remains a question mark. Louie Held,
cage numeral-winner from Indian-
apolis, and Joe Higgins of Garden
City, are other good hot corner pros-

To Football Pr
By PETE TENNEY
Along with spring, this new mech-
anical age has hit Ferry Field. In
fact it has come in such great quan-
tity that it takes a truck to get it
out there every afternoon.
In case you haven't guessed, we are
talking about all of the new mech-
anical aids that the Michigan gridders
area getting in their football training
As part of their football duties
the boys have taken up skipping rope
and wearing aprons. Of course the
rope skipping is accepted as one of
the best ways to get the legs in con-
The aprons are. the newest in pro-
tection used for blocking practice. The
victims to be blocked tie the big pad-
ded canvas aprons around their mid-
riff, and then when they get hit, they
don't get all banged up.
The Upside Down Jump
Another of the new innovations is
the upside down high jump. To the
uninitiated, it looks just like a high
jump standard but instead of jump-
ing over the black and white bar, the
backfield men go puffing along under
it. If they are good, the bar is then
lowered and the one who can go low-
est is the winner.
Eleven stuffed shirts are also in
great prominence on the field of bat-
tle. These, the new blocking dummies,
take the most punishment of any one
in the game. They are set up in form-
ation and knocked down, set up and
knocked down,-it keeps up all af-
Much spleen is also vented against
the four big tackling dummies hung
up down by the railroad tracks. Along

'We'll Win,' Claims
Breadon Of Cards
CHICAGO, April 23.-(AP)-The
Deans may be gone and the experts
may be picking the St. Louis Car-
dinals to finish no better than third,
but President Sam Breadon wound
up and let fly the emphatic state-
ment today that "We're still the Gas
House Gang and we'll win the Na-
tional League pennant."
The four defeats suffered by the
Cardinals in their first five starts
apparently don't bother Breadon.
Neither does the absence of Dizzy
Dean, now a Chicago Cub.
