Oops, Pardon Me...
EMBARRASSING COINCIDENCE :
Prior, to yesterday's ball game
with State, Leo Beebe, Varsity cat-
cher, decided to visit awhile with his
old Dearborn friend Sam Nuznov,
who plays a fair game of first base
for the Spartans. Leo sneaked up
to the Spartan dressing room and
had accidentally opened the door on
a meeting in which Coach John Kobs
was discussing Michigan hitters
"Now this Beebe," Kobs was say-
ing, "is a pretty good catcher but
he can't hit much . . . " The door
silently closed and Leo, a wee bil
flustered, deferred his Nuznov visit
until they reached the field some
Amusing aftermath: Leo tried sc
hard to discount Kobs' appraisal that
he failed to get a hit all afternoon ...

Enroute to the Quadrangular
Relays at Bloomington Ind., last
weekend, Charley Hoyt, driving
his big LaSalle sedan, felt a bit
fatigued and asked Jake Town-
send to take over. "Let one of the
boys In the back drive," offered
Jake, "I don't want to." After
Charley insisted, Jake acquiesced
and took over the wheeling. He
buzzed' along at a goodly clip,
weaving in and out traffic with
almost professional abandon.
When the party reached Bloom-
ington, Harold ,avidson ap-
proached Hoyt and opined that
Jake didn't do so bad for the first
time. Hoyt's reactions were not
recorded, although he refuses to
believe it was Jake's first time in
the driver's seat.

Bleacher Blowol fs ...
Lest it be mistaken, Walt Peckin-
paugh ban take the average "riding"
from a bleacher blowoff, but some-
thing shouted at him during yester-
days ball game hurt. When he booted
a crashing bounder, someone yelled:
"Just like his old man in the World's
Series." Peck operates under a terrific
handicap trying to justify his her-
itage-and he does a swell job, for
beyond doubt he's one of the best
third sackers you'll ever find in col-
lege. And the repeated references to
his father mherely add pressure. With-
out a weak knee which handicapped
his play yesterday, he'd have made
that grounder look easy.
But what pained Peek'was the
reference to the 1925 World's
Series, in which his father-one
of the game's greatest short field-
ers-had a rough time in the
field. Explains Walt: "Dad had a
severe charley horse in that
series, and he was playing all r
covered with bandages. I remem-
ber my mother staying up almost
every night applying hot towels
to his leg so that he could play
the next day."
Young Peck hardly needs any
apologies for either his or his
Long John Gee, who hurled for
Michigan last year, has pitched two
consecutive victories in the Inter-
national League, a double A organiza-

may find himself in the big top in

can fog that ball in consistently are
at a premium . Steve Uricek, Wol-
verine infielder last year, is playing

batted out of the box by the Spar-
tans in the first inning yesterday,
Danny shifted 'to right field and
things began to happen. His first

fourth batted in another run with

For Penn Meet
Davidson, Ace Miller, Has
Leg Injury; Rae Shows
With only two days left until their
scheduled departure for. the Penn
Relays at Philadelphia, the complete
personnel of the University of Mich-
igan track team was still an open
question after yesterday afternoon's
Time trials in the 440 and 220 fea-
tured what was scheduled to be the
deciding practice session. The trials
were run but complications had set in
which caused Coach Charlie Hoyt to
give the team another day of 7ork
and himself another night of cereber-
ation before coming to. a decision.
More Budget Trouble
Chief reason for the delayed post-
ing of the traveling list was finan-
cial. The budget will only allow the
Wolverines to carry so many men on
a trip of such distance and it will be
necessary for the Michigan mentor
to choose his men with an eye to
doubling each one if possible.
The question of where to cast the
coveted nod became no less compli-
cated when Michigan mile ace, Har-
old Davidson, turned up with a
muscle irritation which robbed him
of much of his old power and quar-
termiler Doug Hayes, who has been
on the inactive list for the past week
with a strained muscle, announced
that he was ready to make a play for
a spot on one of the Penn bound re-
lay foursomes. Both men will run a
special 660-yard time trial today.
Abbott Edges Rae
The quarter mile trial saw veteran
Waldo Abbott eke out a decision over
rookie Jim "Stretch" Rae but it was
Rae's race notwithstanding the fact
that he placed second. It was the
loosely hung sophomore's first ap-
pearance in the long sprint and the
manner in Which he ran showed it.
Trailing by five yards as the field:
entered the first turn, Rae began to
pull up but found himself in as neat
a box as anyone could ask for. He
stumbled, almost hit the cinders, but
recvovered in time to tie on to Ab-
bot's beautiful stretch sprint that
carried the winner home in 50.5 with
Rae inches back.
At Home Today
Varsity Boasts Only Two
Defeats In First Eight
Starts Of Season
Michigan tennis fans get their first
chance to see the 1938 Varsity in
action this afternoon when the Wol-
verines take on the Western State
Teachers squad in a return engage-
ment at the Ferry Field Courts. The
match is scheduled for 2 p.m.
The Wolverines, who have won six
of their eight contests to date this
season, including the two Conference
matches played, added the Kalama-
zoo team to their list of victims when
they defeated them at their home
courts Monday, 5-4.
Win Five Matches
In the matches Monday, the Var-
sity took four singles and one doubles
to win. Don Percival, Hank Cohen,
Steve Woolsey and Tom Slattery, in
the two, four, five and six positions
respectively were the singles winners.
Capt Neil Levenson and Slattery add-
ed the lone doubles win in the first
The trio of wins in the past week
has given indications of a rapidly
improving squad, which should turn
in a fairly noteworthy performances
In the' schedule to date the Wol-
verines have turned in a record of six
victories against two defeats. During
the five-game spring trip, they
opened with an 8-1 win over the
University of Richmond, lost to
V.M.I., 3-6, bowed before a 9-0
University of Virginia onslaught, and
took Western Maryland and Du-
quesne into camp by 8-1 scores.
Down Conference Foes
In the initial Conference matches
last week they downed Indiana and
Illinois by 4-2 and 5-4 scores re-
spectively.. Monday they added their
fifth straight in . the Western State
Today's meeting will see practical-
ly the same lineup that faced the
Kalamazoo opposition Monday. Capt.
Neil Levensn will lead off for the
Wolverines in the number one spot,
with Percival, Kidwell, Cohen, Wool-
sey and Slattery filling in the other
singles spots in that order.
However, Coach Weir is undecided
as to the doubles combinations he
will use in today's contests. In the
last three matchesi the pairings he
has used have not come through in
very good shape. The squad has
been able to garner only one win in
the miatches in each of the last three

Pirates Lose First
PITTSBURGH, April 26.-(A)-The
Pittsburgh Pirates bowed today for
the first time in the young National
League season, but it took the hard-
clubbing Chicago Cubs 10 innings
to grind out their 5 to 3 triumph.

a single into their half of the extra
chapter to account for their margin
of two runs.
Senators Trim Boston
WASHINGTON, April 26.-(P)-
The Senators defeated the Boston
Red Sox, 6 to 4, today, largely be-
cause Pete Appleton was stingy with
hits in the pinches and had them to

Boston collected 10 blows off the
veteran, but they were scattered. At
