84 Troincing
Cohen Wins Only Match
As Wildcats Dominate
Afternoon's Play
Michigan's Varsity tennis teami
started another weekend of intensive
play yesterday by taking an 8-1
trouncing from Coach Paul Benett's
Northwestern squad. Hank Cohen
was the only Wolverine to win in the
singles, going three sets to down Mac7
Milne 3-6, 6-4, 6-2.
The Wolverines are forced to for-1
go an expected day of rest today.
Due to a schedule mixup the Wolver-
ines must play Purdue today- at the
same time that Northwestern meets
Ohio State. The matches will be
played at the Palmer Field courts,
with the Michigan-Boilermaker set-to
scheduled to start shortly after the
Wildcat-Buckeye tilt gets under way.
Meet Ohio State
Tomorrow the Weirmen conclude
their dual meet season against the1
Ohio State squad. Game time is 101
Except for the work of Hank Cohen,
playing in the fifth position, the Wol-
verines went the way of all corers,
as far as thehWildcats were con-
cerned. While most ,of the matches
were hard fought, the Benettmen
completely dominated the afternoon's
affair, winning most of the matches
in straight ┬žets.
In a non-official singles event,'
Steve Woolsey defeated Larry Owens
7-5, 8-6.
Use Palmer Field
The two matches scheduled for
this afternoon will be played at the
Palmer Field Courts. The North-
western and Ohio State squads will
take to the courts first, with match
time scheduled for 2 p.m.

Dizzy 'Is Through'
Says Cardinal Star
ST. LOUIS, May 12.-(IP)-Take it
from Peppe' Martin, Dizzy Dean, his
erstwhile teammate, "is through" as
a pincher.
"No matter what you hear," said
the Wild Horse of the Osage who
roams center field for the St. Louis
Cardinals, "Dizzy's arm Nis in bad
shape and he isn't going to win a
pennant for the Chicago Cubs."
Dean recently was ordered to take
a month's rest when his arm began
ailing. Cub trainers have said the
"cure" should make his arm as good
as ever.
Pepper is just as certain that the
trade winds won't blow him off the
Cardinal roster as he is that Ol' Diz
is done for.
"Down south Ricky (Branch Rick-
ey, Cardinals' General Manager and
Vice-President) told me that he
wouldn't break up my Mudcats' band,
and that, of course, makes it a cinch
for me," he grinned.

Cold Weather Bothers Charlie
More Than The Buckeyes Do

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the fifth of a series of columns conducted by the
Junior candidates for the sport editorship next year. Today's is written by Ben
Moorstein who has, been engaged in covering golf.
Uneasy Rests The Crown.. .
THE CYCLE of the sports records, the smashing of old and replacing with
new, shattering, resetting, has furnished columns of print for sport
pages and hope for aspirants to the short-lived throne a new mark offers.
It also affords another consideration-what keeps this cycle moving?
Certainly there hasn't been any fundamental change in the design of the
internal anatomical setup of the huhan body. That has remained the same
even from Adam. But since the first written Olympic records back in 776
B.C. they have repeatedly fallen, making way for greater and better ones.
And in the last few decades the advance has been nothing short of
phenomenal. Well then, again, what's the answer?
It all lies in improved technique and equipment, or in one word
-science. Glance back through youIr Spalding. You'll find no Olympic
record dating earlier than 1932. Not unusual. It's to be expected.
Science moves even faster than the new entries it helps register and
it always has a new pitch to offer. Let's look at some of its achieve-
ments along this line.
Professor D. L. Rich of the physics department states that in ballistics
an independent projectile achieves its greatest distance if shot at an angle
of about 37 degrees. George Horine applied this mathematical and physical
rule to the high jump in 1912 and started something. By approaching the
bar ata 37 degree angle he gave his feet almost twice the momentum of his
head at the instant he left the ground. He then literally rolled over the bar
with. a series of body contortions in mid air to give the track and field
world what's now known as the "western roll" besides a new high jump mark.
He demonstrated that "no one knows how to jump instinctively."
Continued analysis of the subject finally taught a jumper to keep
his center of gravity low because lifting this point prompts greater
effort and limits the leap. Now it's even possible to go over a bar and
still have the center of gravity pass beneath it. It's done by snaking
the body over, somewhat like a rope passing across a pulley.
Pole vaulting, too, offers openings for science. The action in tripping
the tall bar is that of a double pendulum swing and an upside down arch
of the body-plus timing. Hurdling marks also went fast, primarily be-
cduse you can travel faster on the ground than you can in going over
obstacles. A hurdler follows this rule by going over straightlegged and
snapping instantaneously back to earth.

Walloping William lei all the Big Ten

ed out a .324 average at the plate last
Vying for slugging honors, how-
ever, will be Michigan's Danny Smick.
Big Dan is leading the nine's hitters{
with an average around the .400 mark,
besides providing a lot of home run
clouts-so handy in those nip and
tuck affairs.
Series Unpredictable
Anyone who tries to dope Michi-
gan's chances in this series is wast-
ing his time. The Wolverines are
that kind of a' ball club-in today,
out tomorrow. Given a little inspira-
tion and some of the luck they've
been needing so badly, they'll hold
their own against Ohio. If they bog
down-as they're so prone to do-the
'only cheers will come from the Buck-
eye bench.
Fishman, who is responsible for
Michigan's lone Big Ten victory this
year, gets another chance today and
a deserved one. Last time out, Herm
held Indiana to six hits but lost 4 to 1
when the Varsity folded up in the
field and at the plate.

Only one thing bothers Michigan
track coach Charlie Hoyt and it isn't
Larry Snyder's Ohio State tracksters
whom the Wolverines engage Satur-
day at Columbus in their final dual
The thing that is causing the fur-
rows in Charlie's brow is the unseem-
ly cold weather which has caused his
performers to keep under cover all
week. "It is bad," says Chuck. "This
is the week we usually pour it on
for the Big-Ten championships. Now
we will have to work hard next week
instead of resting like we usually do.
Very bad."
And The Buckeyes?
And what about the Buckeyes who
are reportedly on a rampage, who
just knocked off one of their old rivals,
Indiana, and having felt their oats,
are now preparing to smash the Hoyt-
men in retaliation for a dual drubbing
suffered at their hands this winter?
"If we don't pile up as big a score
on Ohio State as we did on Illinois
(87-43, a sizeable margin), some-
thing will be wrong." Thus did
Charlie, who rarely makes such re-
marks, dispose of the Bucks, at least
until Saturday.

Science And The DO*scus..


N REGARD to scientific improvement of equipment without varying from
the standards, John ,E. Lodge, writing in Popular Science, pointed out
that a discus was formerly cut with the grain running vertically through
the thickness of the wood Then it was found it would go farther if the
grain ran horizontally along the face. Needless to say the change was
made and that's the way they are now.
In 1928 the Olympic record for the javelin throw was some 180 feet.
Now it's more than 250 feet. That a vibrating body offers a great
deal of resistance t smooth, even motion is well known in physics. So
someone, applying this, fashioned a javelin of stiff material and cut
down the vibrations, increased the distance. The pole vault poles
are no longer heavy hickory or ash sticks, they're bamboo or light
metal, and this contributed to greater heights.
In laboratory experiments recently at N.Y.U. it was found that a discus
thrown into the wind actually goes farther than with the wind. By tossing
into a 7 or 8 mile per hour breeze there's a fairly good partial vacuum formed
to keep the discus aloft longer and make it go farther. In weight throwing
or broad jumping, near the equator would be the best place to operate. There's
less pull of gravity there and a greater speed of rotation of the earth which
improves the attempt. Throwing toward the east makes for greater distance
-even right here in Ann Arbor.
The list goes on and on. -B.Mf
