P:. "- 'y IRVIN LISAGO --
EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the third
of a series of columns conducted by
Junior candidates for the- sport editor-
'ship next year. Today's piece is writ-
ten"by Stewart Fitch -who has been
engaged in covering spring football.
Chicken On Egg...
THIS DITTY will read like the old-
time-worn argument of the rela-
tive importance of the chicken and
the egg-which came first and which
merits the greatest consideration in
the final biological analysis. Like
the chicken and the egg, the player-
coach relation in the collegiate sport-
ing world draws the same sort of ar-
gument. Does the coach make the
player or is the player responsible
for the success, if any, of the mentor.
The conclusion may seem ob-
vious, but paradoxically enough
the argument has two sides. In
fact, many coaches in moments of
weakness or confession have made
strange admissions regarding this
issue. Take the coach of Hank
Lulsetti, the flashy Sanford cager
who wound up a brilliant career
this year, breaking the all-time
scoring record en route. John
Bunn, Luisetti's coach has con-
fessed 'very frankly that it was
Hank's sparkling work on the
hardwood that stamped him as
one of the nation's outstanding
cage mentors.
Cappy Credits Jake.. ..
Even "Cappy" Cappon, ex-Wolver-
ine basketball coach has been heard
to. credit Jake Townsend with what
measure of success he attained as a
hardwood coach. Matt Mann, genial
Varsity swim coach can also attest
to the fickleness of the sporting fra-
ternity. Just after the Wolverine
tankers had returned victorious from
their trip to the National Collegiates
Matt was cornered by admirers and
was forced to make a statement (It's
really no job td get Matt to talk about
his swimmers). The substance of his
statement was , that his boys just
saved him from the shame of being
dubbed "a pretty rotten coach." When
Matt's teams drop more than one de-
cision a year, the fan thinks he is
losing his grip.
Mann then broke into a smile
however, as he continued, "But
next year it will be different-Iill
be a good coach again. I've got
some freshmen coming up and
... " Matt gave his listener one
of his famous nudges with his el-
bow.

Kipke Ridden Hard
Harry Kipke was known every-
where as a leading grid coach when
his famous national championship
teams of 1930 to 1933 were running
riot on the Big Ten gridirons but With
.he collapse of the team the follow-
ing year, the old story began. His
two previous years were termed lucky
and people pointed to such stars as
Petoskey and Newman and said that
they Were responsible for Michigan's
reign and that Kip just walked into a
pile of good luck.
Even the big league baseball
managers have seen this strange
malady infest their ranks. For
example look at the big parade
of managers who have stepped in-
to the breech for the Cleveland
Indians only to be fired out a
short time later. No stars were
produced overnight. Mickey
Cochrane was hailed the best
ever when he pulled the Detroit
Tigers out of the doldrums. But
today, the fickle fan is accusing
"Black Mike" of all kinds of in-
efficiencies merely because the
Bengals aren't out in front.
The course of John Q. Public's ire
cannot be escaped by any of the

managing or coaching profession.
When a 1man has top-notch material
to back him up, he is a prince in the
sporting world-but let his stars de-
precidate or leave his ranks and the
Monday morning quarterbacks will
start putting an edge on their tommy-
hawks.

of Lisagor on Pete's four base clout
into left center.

and Berl Mershon. Nyman batted,
for Morris and hit a loping drive into
center field. Pink's try for a shoe-
string catch failed, the ball dropping
safely. The runners delayed, however,
and Kovacs was forced at third, E.

on the fielders' choice.
Cory then singled down the first
base line scoring Mershon, and Ny-
man also crossed when Gedeon threw
wild to the plate after retrieving the
ball.'
Michigan, 8th: Earl Smith got a
two base life when McCook threw
wildly to first. He advanced to third
on Evashevski's infield out and scored
when Burt Smith bounded out to
short-stop Krueger.

Four Veterans
o Strengthen
Center Of Line'
By PETE TENNEY
Fullbacks with their brains knocked
out was the monicker tacked onto,
guards in the olden days when all
they did was hold down the center of
the line, but no longer does it apply.
Now that the guards, through their
blocking, have become the basis of
the running attack and at the same
time still hold down the center of the
line'on defense they must be big and
tough, yet at the same time smart
and fast.
Two Sets Of Guards
Michigan has been blessed during
this spring training season with not
only one pair of experienced guards
who possess these qualities, but two
sets.
Leading the quartet is Ralph
Heikinnen, the only Michigan man
to be picked on the All-Conference
team last year. Heikkinnen is small-
er than the others but what he lacks
in ,size he makes up for in speed,
drive and smartness.
Next in size comes Fred OR s, hard
luck 'champion of the squad. Olds is
over six feet and weighs close to 20Q
pounds. For the last three years he
has a good chance to play near the
top but each fall something has hap-
pened. He hopes to break the jinx
next season.
Size Aplenty
The two big boys are Jack Bren-
nan and Forrest Jordan. Both smart
and fast this pair can tip the scales
at above 400 pounds and between
them tower over the 12 foot mark.
Brennan had a very good season
last fall and has shown vast improve-
mefit this spring.
Jordan held down the heavyweight
berth on the Varsity wrestling squad
a year ago and before receiving a
knee injury was rated as one of the
best top weight men in the Big -en,
All of the foui are fast and power-
ful blockers who can clear a path for
the ball carriers that may be a part of
the hoped for victory margines.

EAST LANSING, May 10.-(Spe-
cial to The Daily)-Still hampered
by the absence of captain and num-
ber one man, Neil Levenson, the Mich-
igan net squad dropped the return
match of the season to Michigan
State by the score of 6 to 3.
The much weakened Wolverine
team was able to win only one of
the six singles matches and two out
of three doubles tilts.
The lone Michigan singles winner
was Henry Cohen, leading point win-
ner of the season,Who defeated Foltz
easily, 6-0, 6-4.
Lineup Shifted
The Varsity line up was shifted
around so that each man was playing
the man who played one step above
him in the earlier match.
Don Percival dropped the number
one match to Herman Stuck losing
the first set 6-1 and the second after
a long battle 7-5.
In the first of the three set matches
John Kidwell won the first set from
Chet Olsen 6-3 but lost the next two
and the match 3-6 and 4-6. Ed
Morris also lost a three set tilt to
Capt. Len Kisitchek winning the first
set 7-9 but losing the last two 5-7
and 6-3. This was the longest and
hardest fought match of the after-
noon.
Big Chuck Gibbs had an easy time
with Herb Cisco who was moved into
fifth position from eighth, trouncing
him 6-1 and 6-2.
Slattery Drops Tough One
Seymour Rawitz and Tom Slattery
also went three sets with Rawitz com-
ing out on top after winning the first
set 6-2 he dropped the second 5-7
but came back to take the third set
and the match 6-2 again.
In the doubles matches the Wol-
verines had a .much more successful
time. Although Cohen and Percival
were stopped by Stuck and Olsen
easily 6-2, 6-3 Kidwell and Woolsey
combined forces to defeat Kositcheck
and Gibbs 7-5, 7-5.
Ed Morris and Herb Cisco also came
back to work out a three set win over
Foltz and Rawitz 3-6, 5-7, and 6-2.
Another Gone
Singles: Stuck (S) d. Percival (M)
6-1, 7-5; Olsen (S) d. Kidwell (M)
3-6, 6-3, 6-4; Kositcheck (S) d. Mor-

WINGS STILL LOSING
LONDON, May 10.-(P)-The Mon-
treal Canadiens defeated the Detroit
Red Wings 5 to 4 before a capacity
crowd of around 8,500 at Earlscourt
Stadium tonight for their fifth vic-
tory in a "Barnstorming" tour of Eng-
land and France.
