NOTRE DAME, Iid., May 5.-
(Special to The Daily)--Michigan's
Varsity tennis team lost its first
match in nine starts here to4ay as
Notre Dame defeated Coach Ieroy
Weir's forces 6-3. The victory was
Notre Dame's second in* five starts.
The Wolverines garnered' two_
singles matches and one doubles. The
Varsity was without the services of
its captain, Neil Levenson, out with
an infected toe. It is doubtful if he
will be in condition to play against
Minnesota tomorrow, although he
may be ,able to see action against
Chicago on Saturday.
With Levenson out of the lineup,
Coach Weir was forced to play each
one of his players one notch higher
than the spot the men were accus-
tomed to play.
Henry Cohen, playing in the num-
ber three position, prolonged his win-
ning streak to six straight matches
by defeating his Notre Dame oppon-
ent, George Rodgers, 8-6, .4-6, 6-4.
Tom Slattery was the-other Michi-
gan singles player to come through
with a win, beating Kilrain 2-6, 1-5,
6-4.
In the doubles the number three
team of Ed Morris and Toin Slattery
was the only Wolverine duo to win
its match. They downed their oppon-
ents 6-8, 6-2, 6-3.

Mighty Muscle.
Men To Meet
At Ferry Field
The four mightiest muscle-men in
the Big Ten match strength in the
shot put and discus events Saturday
when the University of Illinois track
team meets Michigan at Ferry, Field.
The quadrumvirate will consist of
Dean Frary and George Gragg for
the Illini versus Big Bill Watson and
John Townsend for Michigan. Of
the five shotput places picked in the
Conference indoor meet, Watson,
Frary and Townsend took the first
three and Gragg placed fifth. Ford-
ham of Ohio State squeezed in at
fourth.
Watson Won Discus
Watson, Townsend and Frary an-
nexed win, place and show positions
in the Big Ten discus last season
while Watson and Frary took first
and fifth respectively in the shot.
Townsend was just out of the money
in sixth and Gragg is a sophomore,
hence did not compete.
The four are rivals of long stand-
ing. Besides their loop competition,
they have met at such track and
field carnivals as the Illinois and But-
ler Relays.- At least two of them have
always finished in the summaries
and usually- all four.
Big Bill's spring steel right which
whips the iron ball out over 50 feet
at any and all occasions and the dis-
cus- around the 150 feet looks likely
to- dominate the affair as always.
Second Place Is Toss-Up
The other two places are .not so
certain with any one of the other
three likely to come through with
Jake' and Frary about even money in
the shot' for' second place, Town-
send holding a slight edge'over Frary

My Bi gea
By MAL ELWARD
, Purdue Football Coach
Playing scrub ball in Iowa son'ie
years ago, I actually saw a pitcher
throw two strikes with one pitch.
Here's the way it happened.
Myers, the pitcher, was one of
those "nuts" who was liable to do
anything at any time. While sit-
ting on the bench during one
game, he got a brainstorm. There
was an old russet orange lying in
the dugout, and he stuffed it in
his back pocket as he walked out
to the mound.
After the warmup, he took the or-
ange out of his pocket, put the ball in,
and went into his motion. Suddenly
he let go-not with the ball but with
the orange. It was a perfect strike
right down the alley, and the batter
took a good cut and fouled it. Th
orange flattened out, shot off the
bat, and splattered against the um-
pire's mask. It was two strikes-one
on the batter, one on the ump.
