igan's rejuvenated Varsity baseball
team hooks up with the Michigan
Normal nine in a return game on
Ferry Field at 4:05 p.m. today.
The Wolverines defeated their
neighbors 6-5, in their first meeting
at Ypsi last week, but coaches Ray
Fisher of Michigan and Ray Stites of
Normal both have high hopes that to-
day's battle will tell a different story.
The reason for ]Fisher's optimism
is a simple one. The Wolverines have
been a different team in their last
three starts. Improved pitching, hit-
ting, fielding and above all a new
spirit, have marked the Varsity's
meetings with Indiana, Western State
and Ohio state.'

THE SCENE CHANGES: At 5 p.m. Saturday, a well-wisher phoned and
in three words told us what we had been yearning to hear for two and a
half years. "You got it," he said. That was all we could hear.
Our stability somewhat unbalanced by pre-appointment festivities, it
took us a while to gain the full import of his words. Then it hit us-you
know the feeling. It's the same emotion that Guiseppe the fruit man got
when he won the Irish Sweepstakes. It's the same thrill, the same tighten-
ing of the craw, that that golfer feels when he drops that telling putt on
the 36th green. It's the throb that hits the baseball rookie when he pitches
his first victory or wallops his first homer. The rarity of the experience
makes it a treasured one.
A myriad of jumbled thoughts and memoirs assailed us. High
school days and freezing after oons in the press box of the football
field. Mad dashes to the corner drugstore to phone in the half
score and detail of the play. Bull voiced rewrite men at the city desk,
their flowing profanity, and their utter disdain for anything but the
facts-pure,, simple and concise.
Then Michigan--freshman year-publications. The first story-corner-
ing Ray Courtright in a handball court of the I-M building and pinning him
down on the merits of the new Rae Crother blocking machine. Sophomore
year-wrestling and the fear of covering a sport of which we knew nothing.
Jim Lincoln and the greatest display of guts we've ever seen the night he
squirmed and fought to avoid a pin at the hands of Indiana's Bob Haak and
give Michigan a win over Indiana. Lugging a WJR mike for Harry Wismer
at the Big Ten track meet with the rain pouring down and Bob Osgood
sloshing through the mud to break a world's record.
Junior year-football practices. Shivering with a group of colleagues a
the sidelines. A study in contrasts-the Wolverine eleven before and after
the Michigan State game. Harry Kipke's face in the locker room after
the Minnesota massacre. The day we were thrown out of the library for
selling Daily extras on the Kipke ouster. The first Fritz Crisler press con-
ference and the floor splattered with used flash bulbs. Basketball: Jake
Townsend in the locker room after the first Ohio State game, his arm torn
from elbow to wrist by the cruel scratches of his guard. Bill Barclay writh-
ing in pain in the Field House training room, his leg badly injured, and an
ambulance on the way.' The night Jake broke the scoring record against
Northwestern. They passed on-and on-and on-a panorama of the most
interesting two and a half years of our life.
ONE BOUNCES BACK to normalcy rapidly. Our colleagues and friends
expedited that. "Well, you're sports editor," they said. "What's going
to be your policy? What are your aims? What do you expect to do?"
We thought it over. Two and a half years is no era, but it's long enough
to give .one some insight into the job at hand. A cursory summary of, the
whys and wherefores:
1 We will not be scalp hunting this year. We are tired of
situations, of intrigue, of Tumor, and of innuendoes. But if, the
inevitable occurs and "one of those things" does turn up, it will be
dealt with objectively and expediently.
2. We will be fair. Accuracy must be maintained at any cost if
we are to be honest with the readers. We will be fair to the coaches.
Their point of view will be deemed worthy of the highest consideration.
We will be fair to Michigan. It tnust come first-always. 1
3. We will betray no confidences either by player or by coach. It's
a prime requisite in this type of job.
4. We will welcome criticism or inquiries by readers. Your con-
tributions will be acknowledged and recognized if constructive.
5. The standards of the page will remain the same. I-M news
will continue to receive a good play. Intramurals are vital to the
welfare of the University and the student body and deserve recognition.
National sports will be freely used, page space determining the volume.
Unless unforeseen contingencies arise, this column will appear daily.
Occasionally we will turn from athletics per se for a brief venture into
other fields should the material seem suitably interesting.
PEOPLE we can't help thinking of today:
Irvin "Pete" Lisagor: Stepping into your shoes has us worried, Pete.
They're about four sizes too big. Seriously though, as an associate and later
as an understudy, we learned more about this racket than we'ever imagined
existed. As sports editor, you blazed a trail that will long remain in Daily
annals. It was a magnificent job, one of which you can well be proud. It
will pay dividends, Pete.
