Travel To Play Notre Dame,

Netters Face
Maroons, Irish
And Minnesota
Seven Men To Make Trip;
Chicago Squad Is Rated
Toughest To Beat
Michigan's surprising tennis team,
bolstered by eight consecutive wins,
takes to the road this morning to as-
sume the underdog role in a week-
end of three matches. Two of them
are against Conference competition.
This afternoon the Wolverines meet
Notre Dame. Tomorrow they take
on Minnesota at Evanston, Ill., and
Saturday they play Chicago.
The Irish squad is not the tough-
est on the Wolverine schedule by any
means. Their performance to date
is not as impressive as that of the
Michigan squad, and it is partly on
this record the varsity is looking to
a win.
Tomoriow the Weir squad faces a
Gopher team which is practically the
same as the one they defeated 5-4
last year. The Gophers lost no one
by graduation last season .and are a
bit improved since then.
Chicago, if anything, is better than
last year. The Maroons have won
ally their matches by at least 6-3
scores. They lost both Norm Bickel
and Norbert Burgess, two of the out-
standing players in the Conference,
but acquired Charles Shostrum, bro-
ther of the number two player, as a
partial replacement.
The squad which Coach Weir
named to make the trip included
seven players and manager Norman
Soodik. The players, listed in their
probable singles positions are Cap-
tain Neil Levenson, Don Percival,
J'ohn Kidwell, Tom Slattery, Hank
Cohen, and Steve Woolsey. Ed Mor-
ris, seventh man on the squad, will
play doubles with Levenson.

Dean Out For A Month; Tigers
Win; Indians Lose In Thirteenth

CHICAGO, May 4-(P)-Dizzy Dean
will be absent from the Cubs' line-
up for at least a month, Dr. J. F.
Davis, club physician, announced to-
day although x-ray examinations
failed to disclose any damaged
muscles or ligaments.
Dr. Davis ordered Dean to take a
complete rest for two weeks. He add-
ed that it probably would be another
two weeks before the big right hand-
er could return to the game.
Dr. Davis said there was still a
lingering inflammation in Dean's
salary arm, due to a muscle injury
in his shoulder last year, and that it
was his belief it could be completely
cured with absolute rest.
BOSTON, May 4.-(AP)-The Detroit
Tigers, teeing off against righthander,
Jack Wilson, made at least one hit
and had runners left in every inning
today when they topped the Red Sox,
4-1 to deadlock the current'series.
With a revamped lineup, that in-
aluded Donald Ross at third base and
catcher Rudy York in left field, the
Tigers whaled Wilson for 13 hits in
eight innings and then collected three
more from Byron Humphreys in the
finale. Boots Poffenberger went the
route for the Tigers and held the
home forces to six hits, half of them
The defeat dropped the Red Sox
Han-sen Tees 00,
Bags Hole-In-One
George Hansen, senior golfer, saw
one, of his most profound dreams
come true yesterday, when he teed off
on the fifth hole at University Golf
course, hit a high and true number
five shot straight for the green, 160
yards away, watched his ball land
about 15 feet from the cup, roll slow-
ly across the green and trickle into
the awaiting crevice.
Hansen playing along with Fred
Lamb, freshman golfer, Ken McCar-
ren of the varsity squad, and Jack
Emery, varsity veteran, finished the
round with an 83.
George Davis, former varsity golf
ace, was the last man to hole out
his tee shot at the University course
before Hansen, and he turned the
rick back in 1934 on the eighth hole.

Detroit moved up to sixth place.
WASHINGTON, May 4.-(,)-
Rookie Dutch Leonard pitched the
Senators to a one-to-nothing victory
over the lead leading Cleveland In-
dians today in 13 innings.
Feller gave up only three hits, all
singles and whiffed eight Senators.
He walked nine however. But Leon-
ard's performance was greater. He
walked nobody, allowed no Indian to
reach third, and only two got as far
as second.

Phi Delta Theta's chances of win-
ning the trophy soon to be awarded
to the high point winner in all-year
fraternity competition soared yester-
day when their baseball teem defeat-
ed the defending champions, Sigma
Chi, 11-0 behind the three-hit hurl-
ing of Tom "Ace" Harmon.
The Phi Delt's victory, their third
straight, lifted them into the cham-
pionship flight of the I-M fraternity
softball league and added enough
team points to their total to place
them far above their nearest rivals,
Phi Upsilon and Chi Psi.
In professional fraternity softball

Difficulty With Tartars;
Match Is In Detroit
Four sophomores and one senior
will comprise Michigan's golf team
when it tees off against the Wayne
University team tomorrow afternoon
at the Tam O'Shanter Golf Club, De-
Coach Ray Courtright has named
Lynn Riess to play No. 1 man followed
by Bob Palmer, Keni Johnson, Bill
Black and senior Fred Scnwarze. The
purpose of this move to give Bill
Barclay and Capt. Al Karpinski rest
from competition and to give younger
men opportunity to gain experience
againset a weak Wayne team which
Michigan white-washed in a match
several weeks ago.
Wayne will start the same line-up
which previously faced the Wolver-
ines. John Krykokow first man on
the Tartar outfit is their outstand-
ing player having carded a 77 when
the teams last met.
Joe Read will again hold down the
second position and Ernie Latos will
play third man. Bill Bundy and Bud
Balkell round out the quintet.
The tilt regarded as a warm-up
match in the light of the first meet,
which incidentally was the first time
the teams had met on the links.
Saturday the Wolverines will play
a strong Illinois team here at Ann

Coaching Staff
The question of what a football
coach does with his spare time can
now bedanswered with some degree of
veracity. They don't sit around think-
ing up trick plays to bamboozle next
fall's opposition or just sit around
and think or even just sit around.
Not Michigan's coaches. They build
"We have a fireplace out behindy
Fritz's house that you could roast(
maybe 50 chickens on . .. if you had
50 chickens" says Marty Martineu,
head of the end department. That is
not gluttony on the part of Marty.
The boys just like to see things done
"We built her three feet wide by
about six feet long. That is so that
if we ever want *to cook anything we
can,' 'says Marty with pardonable
pride. Marty is self appointed press-
agent for the 50-chickens blast fur-
Mr. Martineaucontinued: "Fritz
was the head brick layer and I was
assisitant. I handed him the bricks.
Bennie Oosterbaan said his back hurt
him so we let him be levelerupper. A
few of the bricks are offsides. Wally
Weber and Munn were hog-callers
.. uh, I mean sandmen,..
"They aren't Japs," put in Dick-
"What do I mean Fritz?"
"Sandhogs" answered Fritz.
"Yeah, they carried the sand and
mixed the cement," finished Marty.
"I only hope the line sticks togeth-
er better than those bricks did with
that cement," commented Dickinson
who according to Marty did the
"hammock work." Clarence Munn
was silent. It wa's a solemn thought.
Press agent Martineau got in a
last comment. "Anyway, we have a
swell fireplace. Why, you could cook
a corpse on it."

Students Take To Air To Get Permits

Piloting an airplane-once regard-
ed a dangerous undertaking for even
the experienced-is the aim of some
35 University students now taking
lessons at the Ann Arbor Municipal
These sportsmen learn the funda-
mentals under the tutelage of George
Downs and D. E. Richardsonco-part-
ners in the running of the airport.
There are six ships located at the


field and one may learn to fly for $75
and up.
According to Mr. Downs, there are
generally speaking three stages in the
development of an aviator.
First of all, the instructor takes the
student up with him in order to ac-
quaint the beginner with the funda-
mentals, such as what the instru-
ments are used for and how to bank
and take off.
After the instructor gains a bit of
confidence in the student s ability,
which is usually after two or three
hours of flying, he allows the begin-
ner to take the controls and do the
best he can, which is very little at
this stage of the game. Of course the
instructor is every ready to intercept
and take over control of the ship if
anything goes wrong.
Great progress is usually exhibited
after this stage and the confidence of
the pilot grows rapidly.
The next step is schooling the neo-
phyte in the details of plane control
and when the instructor is satisfied
that the student is capable of hand-
ling the plane himself, the period of
soloing begins.
This consists of hours of practice
in taking off, banking and landing
during which time the student begins
to feel at home in the air. Thirty-

1 The shortest time element in engineering is probably
that encountered in short wave radio tube design -
an allowance of 1/600,000,000 second for an electron
to travel a fraction of an inch.
2. A Westinghouse steel mill motor of this type can be
reversed from full ahead to full back in 5 seconds.
The Westinghouse-equipped streamliner "City of
San Francisco" is one of the two most powerful
Diesel-electric locomotives in use at this writing -
5400 horsepower. Three years ago, the most powerful
train of this type was powered by a 1200 H.P. unit.
The purchase and development of the Gaulard &
Gibbs transformer patents by Geo. Westinghouse in
1885 led to our present widespread use of alternating
current, the foundation of electricity's universal
" The lumens per watt of various types of electric lights
are as follows: (a) Mazda lamp, (60 watt size) 13.9
lumens per watt; (b) mercury lamp (250 watt size)
30 lumens per watt; (c) Neon lamp, (average tube
and gas) approximately 19 lumens per watt.
6. The "De-ion" principle is one which breaks arcs into
segments by passing them through a series of grids.
It has completely revolutionized the construction of
such arc-carrying devices as lightning arresters,
circuit breakers,,motor starters, and safety switches.
7.The "De-ion" principle was discovered and put into
practice by Dr. Joseph Slepian of the Westinghouse
Research Laboratories.
The "Spencer Disc" is a type of thermostat which
acts on the bi-metallic expansion and contraction
principle to give a rifle-like make-and-break in elec-
trical contacts. It is an exclusive Westinghouse
electric iron feature, and is also used to protect
Westinghouse motors from heat damage.
The initials 'P.C.C." in connection with the new
* streamlined streetcars stand for "Presidents' Con-
ference Committee," a committee appointed by the
American Transit Association to design these cars.
By invitation, Westinghouse engineers worked with
this committee, and more than half of the cars of
this type now in use are completely equipped with
Westinghouse electrical apparatus.
10 The initials KDKA, representing the Westinghouse
pioneer station at Pittsburgh, Pa., mean "broadcast-
ing" in the Eskimo tongue.

coming issue of your college publication. Electricity is the
greatest single force in this modern age. Learn more
about it -and about the companies, like Westinghouse,
that put it to doing the world's work.

five hours of solo flying and passing
a written and flight test given by the
Department of Commerce are the re-
quirements for receiving the coveted
private license.
Two coeds, Arlene Krieger and
Shirley Roberts are the only repre-
sentatives of the weaker sex among
the Michigan students learning to
fly. The Engineering, Law and Medi-
cal schools supply most of the men.
Students flying include John Acker,
Carl Nelson, Jake Beers, Albert Cham-
pion. Tom and Bob Cotton, Louis
Goldman, Ed Horder, Bob Harrison,
W. R. Harvey and Bill Janeshek.
The list continues with Don Knapp,
A. L. Kleinschmit, Jack Laro, Don
McNabb, Jack McCrea, Ed Martin,'
Jack Ort, David Poxson, Scott Royce
and John and Larry Rinek.
Joe Robinson, Daniel Ranney, Russ
Strickland, John Seely, John Shorter,
Lee Seltzer, John Stokely, Wayne
White, Jack Wilkie, Conrad Wronski,
Henry Wightman and Bill Wright
complete the list.
The number of hours flown by stu-
dents have been about the same as
last year due to poor weather condi-
tions 'but last year showed 33 per cent
increase over the preceding year.
In 1930 but 300 hours were flown
by students but in 1937 2,000 were
flown. There has only been one ac-
cident involving .students and that
was a minor one.
Alumni of the instructors are lo-
cated all over the country and in
various airlines and airplane plants.
One is now flying a ship in the war
in Spain.
