Lewis weakened by a recent attack
of the flu finished behind Bob Bar-
nard, Michigan sophomore, who sal-
vaged a third place in the heat to
win a place in the 60 yard dash semi-
finals tomorrow night. Al Smith was
the other Michigan sprint qualifier,
winning his heat in :06.4. Myron
Piker, diminutive Northwestern soph-

title when he turned a :06.3, the fast-
est time of the night. Frank Kauf-
man of Wisconsin also qualified.
Michigan's hurdle corps, headed by
Elmer Gedeon made the semi-finals
en masse. The indomitable Gedeon
won his heat away in :08.7, the same
time turned in by Ed Smith of Wis-
consin, Gedeon's chief rival, and Steve
Gutting of Purdue in winning their
heats. Stan Kelly and Jeff Hall made
it a Wolverine grand slam. Kelly took
a second and Hall a third. Besides
Smith, Wisconsin placed Haberman
in the semi-finals.

In Infra-Squad Tilt
LAKELAND, Fla., March 10.-(P)
-Big Hank Greenberg's heavy bat
has lost none of its pontency because
of the long winter layoff. In camp
only three days, Greenberg came to
bat for the "Regulars" in the open-
ing inning of the first intra-squad
game against the "Yannigans" today
and drove the ball over the left field
wall. Paul (Dizzy) Trout, rookie
from Beaumont, was on the slab.
NEW BRAUNFELS, Tex., March 10
-(IP)-A big eighth inning rally fell
one run shy today as the Phillies lost
their first exhibition game of the sea-
son to the St. Louis Browns, 6 to 5)
before a record crowd of 3,000.
Paced by George McQuinn's hom-
er with one on in the first, the
Browns built up a 6-0 edge before
the Phils batted around in the eighth
scoring five runs on four hits and
two errors.
McCarthy announced the Yankees
lineup for the opening exhibition
game against the St. Louis Cardinals
tomorrow would include only three
of last year's regulars-Joe DiMag-
gio, Lou Gehrig and Joe Gordon.
CLEARWATER, Fla.- (RP) -Tony
Lazzeri, the veteran second baseman,
is being considered seriously for the

second baseman when the squad as-
sembled for practice.

in the furlong all won their heats in
the evening's fastest times. Jim Welsh
promised Haynie an eventful evening
tonight by doing 2:14.4. His fastest
of the year, while Ed Hutchins did
his in 2:16.5. Welsh lead the qualifiers
in the 440 by beating Capt. George
Lowe of Illinois, runner up to Haynie
last year, by two yards. The sopho-
more's time was 4:59.4 while Haynie,
who won the first heat, did 5:03.5.
Blake Thaxter also qualified.
New Medley Record
Ohio's crack medley team of Stan-
hope, Johnny Higgins and Quayle
knocked .an even three seconds from
Michigan's three year mark of 2:59.8
Matt Mann, conceding the medley
victory to Ohio used Thaxter to an-
chor Beebe and Johnny Haigh. Thax-
ter finished strong and the Wolver-
ines won their heat in 3:01.4, the
second best time made.
Higgins won his breast stroke heat,
as he pleased with a 2:26. Haigh's
heat winning time, 2:30.5, was second
Ohio's Al Patnik and Earl Clark
finished one two in the low board div-
ing with Hal Benham and Adolph1
Ferstenfeld finiishing third and fourth
respectively for Michigan. Seven men
qualified and the Wolverine sopho-(
mores, Ralph Pyszinski and Jim Wil-
kinson, finished eighth and ninth
out of 18 entries.g
'Pay Off Tomorrow'
Michigan completely dominated the
preliminaries but Matt Mann is not1
over-confident of victory. In spitel
of his quite illuminating "we did
swell" he added "they pay off tomor-
row night." He was thinking that
Stanhope in the back stroke and
Quayle in the hundred are both cap-
able of equalling last night's time in
dual meets. But it appears that in
spite of these possibilities, the Wol-)
verines have too much team balancei
for the Buckeyes to overcome.

Cooke and Hillberg's careers as Michi-

Leads In Assists
Breaking into the lineup as a sopho-
more, Cooke has been noted for his
speed and ability at poke-checking
the opposing players. Being an ex-
cellent team player he has made more
assists for goals than any other Wol-
Les Hillberg made his debut on the
squad last year, and after having
shown the fans and fellow members
of the team his merits, he was elect-
ed captain of this year's squad. At
present he is high point man on
the squad, his goal making sprees
coming to a climax when he netted
five shtots in the Woodstock game.
Shifted To Wing
Although starting out at a defense
position this year, in mid-season he
was switched to the forward line to
team with Al Chadwick, a junior, and
Cooke. As in all games, Michigan's
hopes for a victory will rest on the
drive and scoring power that this for-
ward line can throw into the fray.
Bringing to an end another season
of spectacular net minding, "Spike"
James will attempt to keep the Paris
players from whipping the puck into
the Wolverine net.
Since his first game as a sophomore
last year, "Spike" has been the idol
of all Michigan hockey fans. More
than one game this year has turned
into a personal battle between James
and the whole opposing team.
Prospects For 1940
Although being handicapped be-
cause of lack of experience Larry
Calvert, Chuck Ross, Jim Tobin, Gil
Samuelson, and Jim Lovett have im-
proved a great deal since the first
game, and next year they will form
a nuceleus around which Coach Low-
rey will be able to develop a strong
Michigan team.
Another sophomore who was in
the, process of becoming an excellent
defense man was Bert Stodden. Sick-
ness, however, forced him to drop
hockey for the rest of this season but
he will be on hand fighting for a de-
fense position on next year's squad.

BATON ROUGE, La., March 10.-
(I)-There may be a question in some
minds of whether the New York
Giants will be folding the National
League pennant come next Septem-
ber, or just folding, but to those most
interested there is no doubt. The
Giants are out to win that flag.
From skipper Bill Terry down to
the bat boy an air of quiet confidence
Theoretically, Terry would seem in
a position to do a little experiment-
ing with his lineup. Since his Giants
won the pennant in 1933 he always
had a contender until last year, so
he couldn't break up a potentially
winning combination.
On the surface, the same team
which finished third last year could
not be expected to finish first this
year, but there are factors giving an-
other angle to the case. For one thing,
the Giants at the close of the 1938
season were held together by baling
wire and adhesive tape. From Carl
Elubbel on down the team was afflict-
ed by injury and illness.
