Good Blocking
Features Final
Practice Game
Strong, Kremer, Meyer
Play Well In Backfield;
Heikkinen Also Stars
The Yellows, after allowing the
Blues to tallynine points, came back
to push over two quick touch-
downs to defeat their opponents 13-9
in the traditional annual spring grid
game yesterday at the Stadium.
The Blues started the firewor
by kicking a field goal after only a
minute of play. Following the kick-
off and two plays, Ed Fruitig of the
Blues blocked Paul Kromer's punt
which was recovered by the Yellows
on the 15-yard stripe. After Dave
Strong's pass was knocked down, Jack
Brennan pulled out of the line tc
kick one through the middle for the
first score of the game.
Squads Battle Evenly
The two squads battled almos
evenly until midway in the second
quarter when Dave Strong backed ur
to the Yellow 35 and threw a pass
to John Nicholson on the 20 who ir
turn lateralled to ButchJordan, Yel.
low guard, who carried the ball across
for a touchdown. Brennan misse
the try for the extra point.
At this point the Yellows took con-
trol of the scoring ad held the
edge until the game was called. The
Yellow break came when Ralph Heik-
kinen broke through to block Strong'
pint which was recovered by Jack
ateketee on the Blue 15 yard lipe.
On the next play, Kromer picket
his way through to the 3 yard marker
behind fine blocking. From this poin
it took the Yellows four plays befor
Larry Wckter, fullback, plunged ove
the line for the score. Jack Meye>
booted the extra point.
Kromer Goes Over
In the third quarter the Yellow
eleven started fast by recovering a
Blue fumble on the Blue 14. Kromer's
pass to Meyer put the ball on the
5 and after two plays Kromer backed
up to pass, failed to spot a receiver
and behind good blocking trotted
across for the second Yellow tally.
Butch Jordan blocked Meyer's try
for the extra point and the score re-
mained 13-9. There was no further
Blocking Is Outstanding
The outstanding feature of the
game was the improved quality of
the blocking. Although pretty shoddy
at times the blocking on several occa-
sions indicated that the emphasis
placed on it in the spring drills has
not been for naught.
Outstanding players in the scrim-
mage included Jack Meyer, Paul Kro-
mer, Dave Strong, Ed Cristy and
Wally Hook backs, and Ralph Heik-
kinen, Butch Jordan, F'red Janke, Ed
Frutig and John Nicholson in the

What effect does marriage have on
Captain Merle "Butch" Kremer
gave the lie to the mistaken notion
that it is a detriment, as he joined
the ranks of Joe Louis, Max Schmel-
ing and many big league ball players
to claim that not only is it a decided
help but it gives him a deeper in-
terest in the game.
His baseball record at Michigan
gives mute evidence of the fact that
marriage evidently has a steadying
influence, as the slugging outfielder
was the only Varsity player to hit
over .300 last year and his mark is
closely approximating that point thus
far in this season's games.
He Hits Hard
Left-handed, he is a very powerful
hitter and takes a beautiful cut at
the ball making a good impression
regardless of whether he makes a hit
or not. At Illinois he made this im-
pression fairly permanent by knock-
ing a home-run todempty the three
.bases Michigan had filled.
An outfielder now, he spent his
freshman year and the early part
of his sophomore year pitching, but
his arm couldn't stand the "gaff." He
developed some mysterious ailment
which no one has been able to diag-
nose but which prevents his pitch-
ing steadily. I
"Butch" Also Played Football
Although he didn't play baseball
at Conneaut High School, he was

and had him playing as soon as he
could throw a ball. And he came

to Michigan oi the advice of Jerry
Benson, a Michigan alumnus in his
home town, who had once played
baseball here.
His hobby is athletics and besides
football and basketball, in which he
starred during his 'high school days,
he likes to play tennis. A physical ed-
ucation major, he plans to teach
school at Carleton after graduation.
Indians Are His Favorites
He thinks Berger Larson is the
gratest college baseball player he's
ever seen, which is a compliment in
itself as the two roomed and played
baseball together for a year. Lou
Gehrig is his favorite in Big League
ball and he thinks the Yankees will
win the pennant this year. But be-
ing from Conneaut, 0., he loyally
claims that the Cleveland Indians are
his favorite team.
' "Butch's" vote for the best game
of the year is a toss-up between the
Georgetown and Maryland contests.
These teams were met on the South-
ern' trip during Spring Vacation.
