LVichigan Meets Badger

Nine Today


First Game Of Tri

Herm Fishman
To Take Over
Mound Duties
Gedeon Goes With Squad,
But Ankle Injury Likely
To KeepHim Idle
Hopelessly out of the running for
any title consideration, Michigan's
Varsity baseball team faces Wiscon-
sin today at Madison in the first of
three road games. A clean sweep
would enable the Wolverines to fin-
ish the season with a .500 record.
Herm Fishman who dropped a 4-2
decision to the Badgers in their first
meeting at Ann Arbor, is Coach Ray
Fishers probable mound choice, with
Gene Hinrichs as his likely opponent.
Fishman has progressed rapidly since
the first tilt, his last two efforts hav-
ing been shutout victories over Ohio
State and Notre i Dame.
Elmer Gedeon, regular first sacker,
who has been out with a sprained
ankle, accompanied the team on the
trip, but is a doubtful participant. If
Elmer is unable to play, Danny Smik
will move in from the outfild to the
spot he held down last season, while
Freddie Trosko or Bob Campbell will
handle the right field duties.
Tomorrow the team travels to
Minneapolis for a two-game series
with the Minnesota Gophers, who at
present are tied with Michigan in the
standings. Burt Smith is the Wol-
verines' mound hope in tomorrow's
game, with Ed Andronik due to work
Saturday. Jack Barry, the greatly
improved sophomore, will be held in
reserve for all three games.

Captain Bill ... .
CAPT. BILL WATSON arrived at
track practice early yesterday af-
ternoon. Apparently unperturbed by
his newly acquired captaincy, he af-
fably accepted congratulations from
a handful of visitors and proceeded
to work out, unassuming and quiet as
He put on quite an exhibition.
First he strolled over to the dis-
cus circle and topped off his
workout with a heave of approxi-
mately 165 feet, almost 10 feet
better than Arlie Muck's ancient
Conference record. That seemed
quite adequate to William, and he
turned to the shot. After a few
tosses in the 50 feet bracket, he
dropped over to the broad jump
pit. Then a few laps around the
track, and Bill was ready for an
But first a few words of recapitula-
tion. Tuesday night William Watson
was elected Michigan track captain
for 1939. That he deserved it is un-
questionable. Undoubtedly the great-
est track athlete in Michigan history,
he is everything that a captain should
be. He is a worker, he is respected,
and he stands head and shoulders
above a remarkable team in ability.
A slave for work, Watson is
untiring in his attention to de-
tail. Hour after hour, he works
away at the minutia of track
technique the most fruitful, al-
beit the most irksome, task of
the athlete. He tears an event
apart, analyzing every detail no
matter how small.
Unlike Fred Martin, Watson didn't
start from scratch on his trip to col-'
legiate fame having held three rec-
ords in high school.

BUT LET'S let Bill do the talking.
He's far better informed than
we are.
Q-What do you think of your1
captaincy, Bill?

know them well. I hope I live up
to their faith in me.
Q-Everybody is calling you the
greatest track man in Michigan his-
tory, Bill. How about it?
A-Nope, , that isn't right.
Don't put me in the same class
with Willie Ward. Willie was the'
cream of the crop. If he hadnt

Up until this year, Cohen had
never gone out for either high school
or college tennis. He was "more

went out for tennis.

Admitedly green and sheepishly
confessing that much of his playing
had been achieved only after sneak-

Leroy Weir early this year. Luckily

Reaches Semi-Finals

Cohen is a far superior indoor
player than outdoor. The reason is- -
simple-he plays balls on the rise
and the faster bounce on the wood

faster ball. It is one of Weir's pet
gripes that Hank isn't as good on
clay as he is on wood.Fi
