Foolish Feeling
Charlie reasons that should he ever
come out with a pre-season statement
couched in jubiliant and enthusiastic
terms to the effect that a "dream
team" was in prospect at the Field
House, he and the dream team are
both going to feel as foolish as a

Whole thing caves in at a crucial.
The third and least suspected cause
for Hoyt silence is often he has noth-
ing to talk about, or to phrase it dif-
ferently, Charlie's memories are for
the most part brighter than his pros-
pects. It is a rare case when the
Michigan track roster is overburdened
with the names of men that have
done time in the headlines while still
doing service on a high school team.

turned in 10 victories against five
defeats for the Tigers, last sea-

1938 salary terms calling for 25

recently he had returned such a
contract, commented only that
he had "changed his mind." He
said he will sign the contract
within a few days.
Every year along with the January
thaw comes an outbreak of an old dis-
ease that sends major league base-
ball managers and owners into pre-
mature old age and cuts years from
their naturalife expectancy. The af-
fliction, commonly known as holdout-
itis, is with us again.
Heading the holdout parade this
year is Joe DiMaggio, sensational!

slight raise he was offered wasn't
enough and that he wouldn't work
very hard for anybody on "minor

No holdout story would be complete
