EDITOR'S NOTE: For the next five
issues senior candidates for the sports
editorship next year will conduct this
column. Today's piece is written by
Art Baldauf, who has been engaged in
covering tennis this Spring.
The Why And Wherefore
AN IDEA about which we have been
prone to give a little thought now
and then, in what spare time we
could find to give to thinking about
ideas, cropped up again the other
day. Usually we feel satisfied to sit
back and watch them die. Conse-
quently it was a bit out of the ordi-
nary when we actually took our feet
off the desk and indulged in a bit of
reportorial snooping.
To be more specific, there are
a. number of sports, most of
which have at one time or an-
other flourished at the Michigan
athletic plant, which have been
dropped now but are being sup-
ported for intercollegiate compe-
tition in one or more Big Ten
schools at the present time. So,
we took the afternoon off, hunted
various coaches and asked them
the why, when, etc. about these
now defunct activities. Here are
their answers:
Cross Country: Like most of these
sports, the depression brought a halt
to this fall activity. Should the fi-
nancial burden ever be lifted Mich-
igan runners will probably again take
part in the sport. In the annual Con-
ference meet each fall, the Wolverines
rarely managed to head the field, but
usually placed anywhere from second
to fifth.
Water Polo: The Wolverines had
a team in the twenties. However
the sport was crossed off the list
in the early thirties. Matt Mann
offered three reasons for the dis-
continuation of the sport: (1)
to have a good squad means using
extra men who can devote their
time to practice of this in pref-
erence to working out on the
swimming team - slashing the
budget for the department meant
cutting the traveling squad. (2)
With the I-M pool being shared
by several groups, a water polo
team hasn't adequate room to
practice. (3) Competition in the
sport now means giving extra
work for the tank team at the end
of the daily swimming workouts-
almost too much to expect of the
The Wolverines haven't given up
all hope, however. If a match is
scheduled following a swimming meet.
the mermen will play, but without
benefit of practice. Chicago and
Northwestern in the Big Ten are
most active iii the sport, mainly be-
cause competition is keen around

'A Kingdom For A Horse'
Polo: Lack of facilities for the game
and the expense of keeping up an
adequate string of ponies are the
drawbacks. Illinois, whose R.O.T.C.
boasts several cavairy units, alone of-
fers the sport in the Big Ten.
Gymnastics: Michigan was rep-
resented in Conference competi-
tion from 1930 to 1934, stopped
then because of financial difficul-
ties. Although not overly impres-
sive, the Wolverines managed to
place third or fourth in the Con-
ference meet each of the four
seasons. Material was not out-
standing then, but since 1934 has

improved greatly, according to El-
mer Townsley, instructor in the
activity, and the Wolverines
might have a chance of even high
honors today.
Fencing: Coach John Johnstone's
men usually managed to carve out a
.750 average or thereabouts prior to
discontinuation of the sport in the
lean years. Despite the fact that with
few, exceptions men coming out for
the team were totally inexperienced

Best Golf As All
For Day Stay In


Shooting its best golf of the year'
Michigan nudged out a tough Illinois
team 14-12% yesterday at the Uni
versity golf course to remain unde-
feated in Big Ten play. Every score
turned in by both squads was in the
Illinois led off in the three morn-
ing best-ball rounds to get the jump
over Michigan 5-4. Ralph Carlson, the
Illini's No. 2 man, paced the field
here with a 70. However, there were
also three other below par scores, all
71's, and all in the morning round.
Palmer Puts Michigan Ahead
The six afternoon matches saw
Michigan come back but it wasn't
until Bob Palmer, Michigan's No. 4,
turned in a 74 to blank Ed Hutchi-
son 3-0 and shove the Wolverines
ahead. Before that Michigan was
down one point.
. The weather, which was perfect
except for a very light wind, aided
all the golfers. Mihigan found its
greatest difficulty in putting as nu-
merous holes took three on the green.
Varsity Shoots Three 71's
Bill Barclay and Al Karpinski
halved their foursome as Barclay shot
a 71. Johnny Hobart, on the other
team, also took a 71. Lynn Riess and
Palmer dropped three points to Carl-
ion and Billings when Carlson made
his 70. Bill Black's 71 gave the
Black-Tom Tussing pair 2% points to
Hutchison-Coghill's %.
Barclay, moved up to the No. 1
notch, opened the afternoon festiv-
ities by downing Hobart. Karpinski
followed it up by defeating Carlson
but the Illini went ahead again as
Coghill blanked Riess: Palmer then
did his trick and so did Black who
beat Bilings. Tussing dropped his
match to Patton but the outcome had
no effect on the final status.

at the start, the Wolverines won the
Conference title in 1929 and managed
to place up among the top three or
four the rest of the time. The Uni-
versity continues to offer instruction
under Coach Johnstone and in the
freshman gym classes. Reinstate-
ment of the sport for intercollegiate
competition depends, of course, on the
budget provisions.
Boxing: University authorities
have never-sanctioned boxing as
an intercollegiate sport regard-
less of statistics which show that
rarely are well-equipped and well-
trained college boxers injured in
the ring. Main reason for the ban,
according to Coach Vern Larson,
is the belief that the best method
of winning a bout is to k.o. one's
opponent, or at least attempt to
do as much bodily damage as pos-
sible. That the intention and de-
sire to do harm is a necessary
qualification for a good boxer
lies at the root of all the trouble.
These sports, with the exception of
polo and boxing, were at one time
part of the Michigan athletic pro-
gram. Whether or not they will re-
turn is problematical.

Elmer Gedeon made a quick
change yesterday afternoon when
he jumped out of a track suit, after
jumping over and winning the high
hurdles in the Illinois meet, and
into a baseball uniform in which
garb he batted in Michigan's lone
tally against Indiana.
Lawrin Races
To Derby Win
(Contlinued from Page I)
Black Gold was victorious in 1924.I
Lawrin, in addition to collecting
$47,050, the winner's net share of the
total purse of $57,575, paid off at
$19.20 to win $8.80 to place and $4.80
to show, for each $2 ticket in the
mutual machines.
Dauber, which campaigned on the
West Coast while Lawrin starred dur-
ing the Florida season, paid $12 to
place and $6 to show. The show
price on Can't Wait was $8.20.
Ridden beautifully by Eddie Arcaro,,
23-year-old jockey from, Newport,
Ky., Lawrin made the most of his fin-
ishing powers to win a race that was
as truly run as it was shocking to
the form players.
The big brown son of Insco, out of
Margaret Lawrence, was rated off the
fast early pace set by Menow, saved
ground in the long run down'the back
stretch and came through on the
inside to take command at the head
of the stretch.

CHICAGO, Ill.. May 7.-(Special
to the Daily)-Minus the services of
their number one racqueteer, Neil
Levenson, the Wolv.erine tennis team
fell before the University of Chicago
Big Ten champions. 9-0, this after-
noon in the field house on the
Midway. It was too stormy to play
Levenson, who was too ill to play,
remained at South Bend, entrusting
Don Percival to handle the Maroon
ace, Johnny 8ihcsurum. Shostrum,
who yesterday defeated Don Budge
in an exhibition match, triumphed,
6-1, 6-0. Percival's dogged retrieving
made the match closer than the score
indicates, most of the games being
hard fought. In the opening doubles
set-to, Chicago's famed Murphy
twins, ranking doubles team of the
Mid-West, downed Percival and Hen-
ry Cohen, 6-2, 6-0.
The Wolverines were unable to
take a single set in the nine matches,
and the most games won in any match
were three. Steve Woolsey, the only
Michigan letterman besides Percival
combined with John Kidwell to win
three games off John Shostrum and
ArtJorgenson in the second doubles

cival(M); 6-1, 6-0; C. Murphy, (C).
