Theta Xi Whips
Phi Delts, 7-4
For I-M Title,
Wolverines Take Crown
In Independent League,
Beating Doughboys, 6-5
By DON WIRTCHAFTER
Two long home runs, each coming
with two men on base, enabled Theta
Xi to down Phi Delta Theta 7-4 at'
Wines Field yesterday and wind the
I-M fraternity softball crown.
After Dick Gerkensmeyer and
Gootch Gauthier had walked in the
Teta Xi second, Jack Robinson
stepped up and cracked the cripple
into deep right center for the first of
the four base blows.
Simpson Starts Rally
The second came in the fifth frame.
Phil Simpson, the Theta Xi captain,
drew a base on balls after Ed Chris-
tensen had fanned. Brother Paul
Simpson then reached first when
Dolas White fumbled his grounder to
After Bill Mason flied to Art Ross
in left, Gerkensmeyer singled to right
sending Phil Simpson across with the
fourth Theta Xi run. With Paul
Simpson on third and Gerkensmeyer
on first, Phil Conley poled one over
Ross's head in left for four bases to
mount the Theta Xi total to seven.
Black Goes Route
Tom Black went the entire route
for the winners and allowed but nine
scattered hits. He started out badly,
yielding three runs on four hits in the.
first two frames. Settling down af-
ter that, he had the Phi Delt sluggers
at his mercy for the last five innings.
In the first Jim Tobin's double and
Larry Barasa's pop triple produced
the first Phi Delt run. Bill White
and Jack Peters hit successive doubles
to open the second and both crossed
home plate before the 'inning ended.
The Phi Delts scored their last run
in the sixth on Dolas White's double
and Tobin's second bingle, a single
Wolverines Win Title
In the' Independent league, the
Wolverines won the softball title yes-
terday when they whipped the'
Doughboys 6-5 at South Ferry Field.
Bob Ross hurled for the Wolverines
and allowed but six hits. Len Cohen's
walk, Ben Leopold's double, Charlie
Bower's two base knock and Al Mich-
elson's single produced three runs for
the winners in the initial frame.

And shufflin' Joe Louis, the Grosse'

There's a guy without a title

He's a paunchy, crap shooting,

the corrugated stomach.
Dan Parker, ace N.Y. Mirror col-
umnist, tells all about Tony and his
ferocious appetite in a classic column
a few weeks ago. Here's a few choice
Tony's diet: "Seven fine fat
roast goats, four cwt. of weal
scallapino, six vats of pasta fa-
zoola, a dozen suckling pigs (the
latter at one sitting), the entire
garlic crop of the Province of
Calabria, 18 hogshead of pickled
tripe, a flock of geese on rye
bread, 1,326 bales of spaghetti,
three long tons of broccoli with
Hollandaise sauce, a tankful of
chicken cacciatore, 14 furlongs of
macaroni drowned in tomato

DR. GEORGE J. ANDROS, sportsS
ed. two years ago, pulled an ach-
ing head out of materia medica for
an hour, told the wife he'd be late for
dinner, ambled over to Maynard St.,
and penned us the following:

faith in human nature has been de-
The training table, in exactly
the same form as has been
brought forth by the Big Ten
moguls was first put into words in
The Daily. It was Harry Kipke's
idea (some knew, some suspected,
no one said it in print). It was
first voiced in the Press Angle
(Ed. note, George's column).
Later it was amplified in a front
page editorial and further col-
umns and stories.
Partly because of the fuss The
Daily has raised, our representatives
brought the plan up at the Confer
ence meeting. It was tabled one year
and a half. Now it comes out, as I
said before, in exactly the same form
you will find it in the Dailies of that
All the arguments and descrip-
tions you used in your very fine
column of Marmaduke and Joe
will be found among the same
articles and column.
And now, not only have you for-
gotten your old teacher and his one
claim to fame, but worst of all-and
very poor opportunism-you even ne-
glected to say The Daily (your Daily)
originated the very exact plan that
will be used in the Conference soon if
not next year.

As 'isusually the case, next year's!
Varsity baseball hopes hinge largely
upon the showing of the, pitchingI
staff. With Herm Fishman and Burt
Smith both graduating, next year's
mound corps will have to be com-
posed almost entirely of newcomers.
Aside from the pitching however,
prospects for 1939 are rather encour-
aging with only three lettermen, in
addition to the two hurlers, being
lost. Capt. 'Butch' Kremer, hard-
hitting outfielder, Don Brewer, .;hort-
stop, and Bob Campbell, reserve out-
fielder are those for whom replace-
ments will have to be found.
Here's a brief summary of the
PITCHING: On paper things don't,
stack up so well, for coupled with
the loss of Fishman and Smith, who
won 10 of the Wolverines' 13 victories
this season, Ed Andronik, No. 3 hurl-
Watson And Schwarzkopfl
Take Honors In Meet
GRAND RAPIDS, (Special to The
Daily)-June 3.-The University of
Michigan, paced by Captain-Elect
Bill Watson anddRalph Schwarzkopf,
took top honors at the Western Mich-
igan A.A.U. Meet here tonight.
The Wolverines garnered 42 points
to take team honors and Watson won
the individual award with 15 points
as he annexed first places in the shot
put, discus throw and the broad jump.
In the shot put and the broad jump
he set new A.A.U. records.
Ralph Schwarzkopf, Michigan's sen-
sational sophomore, came in for his
share of the record breaking when
he ran away from the field in the
mile in four minutes and 17 seconds
to break the 8 year old mark by 6.4
Stan Kelley of Michigan garnered
eight points to tie for runner-up for
individual honors with Haskins of the
Detrit Police Department.
Allan Tolmich of Wayne Univer-
sity won the 120-yard high hurdles in
14.9 seconds, Earlier in the day, he
had set a new Michigan A.A.U. record
of 14.7 in the preliminaries.
er, is undecided about returning to1
school. This leaves Jack Barr,
sophomore letterman as the nucleus
for a rebuilt staff.
Smick Tries Again
Danny Smick hopes to take another
' fling at the mound chores and there
is reason to expect lanky Russ Dob-
son, who faded badly this season, to
return to his freshman and pre-col-
lege form. The freshmen are send-
ing up two good ,prospects in Les
Veigel and Felix Karwales, but Fish-
er refuses to count on yearlings un-
til :they have cleared the academic
barrier, and Karwales is said to be
none too well off, scholastically
speaking. The Wolverines may be
without a capable southpaw, unless
John Heering shows a marked im-
provement in his control.
CATCHING: Should be better than
ever with Leo Beebe striving to make
his last season his best. Big Forest
Evashevski with a year's experience
behind him, should be an improved
player, while Howard Mehaffey, the
former Kiski star, has potentialities,
Infield Looks Strong
INFIELD: No worries here with El-
mer Gedeon, Pete Lisagor, and Capt.-
Elect Walt Peckinpaugh back at their
regular positions. Earl Smith, a re-
serve on this year's nine will fight
with freshman Mike Sofiak for Brew-
er's vacated shortstop berth. Bill
Steppon, another promising first-
year man, may fit into the picture
somewhere and "Hank" Greenberg
will again play first base when Ged-
eon takes time off to hurdle.
OUTFIELD: Captain Kremer will
be sorely missed but prospects are far
from gloomy. Charley Pink and the
slugging Dan Smick will return to
their posts, and Fred Trosko will be
the leading contender for left field
although he may face stern opposi-,
tion. Harold Floersch, a regular in
1937, isreturning along with Horace
Tinker, ineligible this season. Red-
headed Bill Cartmill is the best of a
quartet of promising freshmen com-
