New Discovery Makes Varsity
Eligible For Alumni Grid Cup

Doubting Charlie.. .
CHARLIE HOYT tied the last knot
in his mud-caked track shoe,
pulled a familiar blue windbreaker
over his head, and mused: "Well,
another track season is just about
over." He seemed very sorry that it
"Yep, and it looks like another Con-
ference title Saturday, Charlie," we
ventured. "They're all predicting
that you'll walk away with it."
"Don't be so sure," he replied.
"Nothing is ever certain in track.
You count heavily on a bunch
of fellows, but there's always the
possibility that something may
slip up, and then all your plans
are worth nothing. For example,
If Kingsley doesn't vault as high
as we think he will, or if Gedeon
and Kelley should miss out in
the hurdles, or if something hap-
pens to Schwartzkopf, we'll be in
pretty bad shape. You can't ever
be sure about these things."
"Well, you must be crossing your
fingers then,". we returned. "You cer-
tainly can't deny that we're the team
to beat.";

"Nope," said Charlie. "There's
no dodbt that we're the team
they'll have to take. But I've been
around too long to be crossing.
my fingers about these things.
Track is an individual sport, and
each fellow's success determines
in part the fate of the team. I
have confidence in this bunch;
they haven't let me down in com-
petition once this year. They're
good kids, they're smart, and
they're real workers. They won't
let me down in Columbus."
With that Mr. Hoyt donned a black
raincoat, shoved a stop watch in his
pocket, and headed for the track,
grumbling about the weather and
the possibilties of 1fain Saturday. The
Wolverines have proven themselves
good mudders, but Charlie would
prefer a balmy afternoon. There's a
lot less chance for the unforeseen to
spring up that way.


Hitters' Pardise . ..
RAN INTO a hot baseball argu-
ment in the training room yes-
terday. There was a suggestion on
the floor which sounded so asinine
at first, it hardly seemed worth while
sitting \in on the dispute. It soon be-
came apparent, though; that the ar-
gument wasn't as screwy as the sug-
gestion made it sound. Here's the
Pitchers would not be allowed
to throw curves, drops, knuckle
balls, hoks, or miscellaneous
screwballs. Only one type of
pitch would be permitted --
a straight, grooved cousin Betty
ball which would fill the hearts
of all batters with delight. Hit-
ting would become a pleasure
rather than a task. Scores would
usually be in the teens with the
twenties constituting a slugfest.
Extra infielders and outfielders
would be added, and the number
of innings would be decreased.
The whole aim would be to avoid,
the "between pitch" lull and to
make the game a free 'scoring,
slap happy affair.
The "have-nots," after rendering
their favorite brand of raucous deri-
sion, insist that the plan is a fan-
tasy. Claim they: it would mean the
end of scientific baseball and would
open: the diamond gates to a group
of clumsy, powerful oafs (re. Smead
Jolley, Earl Webb, etc.) It would de-
stroy any premium on skill that might
A lot of discussion followed, the
whole thing finally hinging on this.
Pinning down the advocates of the
proposal, it became apparent that
their principal objections to the
present major league games are (1)
the tempo; (2) the price of admis-
As one of the boys put it: "I
spent a'buck and a quarter to see
a ball game in Detroit last fall.
It lasted an hour and a half,. but,
most of the time the pitchers
were throwing to the catchers
and the fielders just stood
around. The only thrills came
when one of the teams got a hit
or two, and these were so few and
far between that they became oc-
casions of great noise and confu-
sion. It sure looked like a gyp to
Personally, we're inclined to hold
that the gentleman either hit a bad
day or was too sore about the $1.25
to be in a receptive frame of mind.
There's no denying it, though, major
league admissions are pretty stiff for

For fhe first time in its 13 year his-
tory the Chicago Alumni Trophy,
awarded annually to the outstanding
freshman football candidate, may not
go to a freshman.-
When Meyer Morton of the Chicago
Alumni organization hands the silver
cup to the selected man at the Union
today at 4:15 p.m. he may be Dave
Strong, a junior who transferred from
Illinois; he may be Ed Christy, Gary,
Ind., sophomore; he may be Capt.
Fred Janke or any Varsity letter man
who has engaged in spring practice.
No Holds Are Baned
Although in the past the cup al-
ways has been awarded to a first
year man, it was- discovered just this
spring that the Trophy stipulations
make mention of no such require-
ment-so now it's an open battle
with no holds barred.
In spite of this startling revelation
however, the names of several out-
standing freshman gridiron prospects
are right at the top of the list of
possible winners.
Jack Meyer, husky signal-caller of
the Kiski quartet, may be the boy.
Meyer, who is five feet nine inches
tall and weighs 200 pounds, has
plenty of speed along with that heft

To Seek Title
Chicago Favored To Keep
Conference Crown
With their eyes on the elusive third
place positio in the Conference
standings, Coach Leroy Weir and a
squad of seven will leave shortly after-
noon today for the three-day Big Ten
Tennis Championships which will
begin Thursday morning in Chicago.
The crown has been virtually con-
ceded to Chicago's defending cham-
pions. With the return of Johnny
Shostrum, ranked first on the Ma-
roon squad, and the Murphy broth-
ers, Chet and Bill, who play two
and three respectively in the singles
play and then team up as the number
one doubles team to provide their op-
ponents with double trouble, the Ma-
roons seem to have too much power.
Their opposition, if any, should
come from Northwestern. However,
the real fight should come for the
show spot with Michigan, Minnesota
and Iowa's mystery squad providing
the fireworks, and the luck of the
dra'w providing the final determinant.
Coach Weir Will rely on practically
the same men who carried the brunt
of the Wolverine attack throughout
the season. Captain Neil Levenson,
Don Percival, John Kidwell, Steve
Woolsey, Hank Cohen and Ed Morris
will play the six singles positions fn,
that order.,
'In the doubles, Levenson and Mor-
ris, formerly the number three team,
have been moved up to the number
one spot; the new combination of
Kidwell and Cohen will take over the
number two and Woolsey and Tom
Slattery will have the third position.
the average fan. And still the game
is drawing and gaining popularity
each year. The Tigers expand their
park, fabulous salaries are paid, huge
farm systems are employed, all of
which is made possible by the sup-
port of Johnny Q. Public. Waiving
any objections aside, it appears that
the national pastime still has a ick
left to it. What's your slant?
PICKUPS:Note to Herm Fishman

Lantern of Monday . . . there's a per-
sonal letter in the sports editor's col.
addressed to you which should be of

noon bound for New York and then

and can block. He knows his foot-
ball and has shown Coach Crisler
and Co. quite a bit of it.
, Harmon Is Handicapped
Another freshman in the running
is Meyer's former teammate, tailback
Paul Kromer. Tom Harmon, former
Gary triple-threat star, has been
somewhat handicapped by injures
and will suffer when attendance is
taken into consideration along with
spirit and improvement, two other
Quarterback Dave Strong is an-
other top-notcher. Although he
weighs almost 50 pounds less than
Meyer, Dave's triple-threat play has
indicated that there will be a great
battle on for the quarterback job next
fall. Dave throws an accurate pass,
is a fine kicker and has speed to burn.
Christy Is Blocker
Big Ed Christy ranks as the num-
ber one fullback at present and may
receive, the award by virtue of his im-
provement. Ed finished his freshman
year in 1936, dropped out of school
for one year, but is back now with a
vengeance. He is a good blocker and
hs shown a lot of drive. He is an-
other Gary product.
In addition to these boys the whole
gang of Varsity players have mIade
their bids so only one thing is cer-
tain. Freddie Trosko will relinquish
the trophy.
Since Ray Baer won the award
back in 1925 it has been held by sev-
en backs, three linemen and three
ends. The six winners who preceded
Trosko were'John Jordan, Bob Coop-
er, Matt Patanelli, Mike Savage,
Gerry Ford and Herm Evrhardus.
Th omasHurls Perfect
Game' In L-M League
Displaying a blinding speedball
along with his excellent control, Ed
Thomas, who starred on the basket-
ball court for Michigan last season,
pitched lhis way into the I-M "Hall of
Fame" yesterday when he allowed
nary a batter to reach first base as
he hurled the Doughboy's Indepen-
dent softball team to a 4-0 victory
over the Millionaires.
Thomas struck out 11 of the men
who faced hie and had no trouble
in retiring the other seven.
In the other softball games played
yesterday, Phi Alpha Kappa drubbed
Theta Kappa Psi 24-4. Sigma Phi
forfeited to Kappa Delta Rho. Charlie
Ross twirled the Wolverines to a 9-1
win over Coe A.C. placing his team
in the final round of the Independent,
division, while Sigma Nu defeated
Sigma Alpha Epsilon 12-10.
Russ Bauers, youthful Pittsburgh
Pirate, and Bill McGee, big Cardinal
hurler, turned in one hit performances
yesterday. The only difference was
that Bauers lost to Boston 1-0 as a
walk, hit and error gave the Bees
their winning tally while McGee de-
feated Brooklyn 2-1.
The faculty golf tournament
which was postponed last week
will be run off this Saturday at the
University course. Each depart-
ment is eligible to enter a five man

ing counted.

Michigan knotted the count in the
next frame on hits by Leo Beebe
and Pink.
However, the Wolverine prosperity
was short-lived. Pitcher Zachar pulled

Michigan got a final chance in their
half of the inning when Ypsi field-
ers seemingly took a lesson from the
Wolverines and muffed two easy flies
to give pinch-hitter Bob Campbell
and Pink gift bases. However Camp-
bell was caught stealing, and after
Pink had crossed the plate on Kre-
mer's single, Captain "Butch" was out
trying to stretch his hit to end a
sorry Michigan day.
