T he Big Game...
A RIVALRY as intense as Ohio State
versus Michigan, as historic as
Yale versus Harvard, as colorful as
Army versus Navy, and as unpredic-
table as New York versus Brooklyn
will be renewed tomorrow afternoon.
Amid scenes reminiscent of valedic-
tory exercises and doctorate examina-
tions, the English department ties
into the Romance Language depart-
,ment in .a tilt which promises to be
a nip and tuck setto all the way.
Pinned to our bulletin board today we
found the first rumblings of impend-
ing strife. Here it is:
"An athletic tradition of long
standing will be perpetuated
Thursday afternoon when the
softball teams of the Depart-
ments of English and Romance
Languages meet at 4 p.m. on the
Ferry Fiel diamond.
"In past games, the Gallic team
has eked out two consecutive
moral victories over the Infinitive
Splitters, and they are expected to
stretch the string to three this
"Neither team has announced
its batteries, but several veterans
of past inter-departmental con-
flicts will be on hand.
"Among them will be such stars
as "Jumping" Jobin, manager and
third-sacker' of the Frenchies,
whose scintillating fielding-plays
have drawn applause in previous
ganes; "Babe" Knudson, who
may see service on the mound for
the Romancers; "Hack" Haines,
star slugger; "Larruping" Litzen-
berg, chief umpire-baiter of the
Albions; "Slugger" Skornia, hard-
hitting Gallic outfielder; "Half-
Hose" Stocking, crack Comma-
chaser shortstop; and "Pike's"
Peake, stellar third-sacker of the
"Neither team will be at full
strength. The Romance aggrega-
tion lost "Cam" Merlino last year
to the National League's Boston
club, while Angles shipped "Hon-
us" Ricke to the Huntington Club
.of ,the Pacific League for the
spring season.
"A close, hard-fought game is
anticipated, however, and a.large
crowd of violent partisans is ex-
pected to be on hand."
LAST NIGHT'S track banquet was a
strictly closed affair with only
team members, coaches, past cap-
tains, and a few of the team's very
close friends attending, such as Phil
Diamond, who was the toastmaster.
Naturally Bill Watson's election as
captain was the high point of the
meeting, but we're saving that for a
more complete treatment at a later
date. For the present our heartiest
congratulations to one of the finest
athletes -and gentlemen in Michigan
athletic annals.
The team also presented a
Stefens T. Mason memorial
plaque in commemoration of their
1938 captain, who died last sum-
mer. On this plaque will be in-
scribed the names of Michigan
track captains for the next 15 or
20 years. It will be placed in the
Field House trophy case.

Yates Defeats


Ex- Wolverine
Fischer Falls In British
Tourney; Kocsis Wins
TROON, Scotland, May 24.-(A)-
Michigan's representatives in the
British Amateur Golf championship
currently running at Troon, Scotland
were cut in half yesterday due to the
unexpected defeat of the ex-Wolver-
in captain Johnny Fischer at the
hands of his Walker Cup teammate,
Charley Yates.
However, Chuck Kocsis, State
champion and also a member of the
Michigan outfit, continued his win-
ning ways and defeated William Pea-
cock of Great Britain, 3 and 2.
Johnny Goodman duplicated the
win that he scored over lanky Ray
Billows in the United States Amateur
last year by a score of 4 and 2.
"Capt. Francis Ouimet effectively
bucked the high wind while elininat-
ing Dr. William Tweddell, 1936 Brit-
ish Walker Cup team captain, 4 and
3. Fred Haas, Jr. swamped A. J.
Ashworth, 7 and 6 joining Reynolds
Smith of Dallas who reached the sec-
ond round yesterday..
A stymie on the 19th hole proved
to be the downfall of Fischer. His
opponent, happy, self - confessed
comedian of the American team, was
putting with a magic touch and tak-
ing advantage of the breaks which
came his way.
