nucleus of next year's squad. Sopho-
mores earning letters were Larry Cal-
vert, Jim Tobin, Jim Lovett, Chuck
Ross, and Gil Samuelson.
Bert Stodden, who played most of
the current season, but was forced
to drop the sport because of illness,
was the sixth sophomore to win his
letter. Fred Heddle, another sopho-
more, earned a reserve award.
Being selected captain of a Wol-
verine hockey team is not out of line
for the James family.
"Spike's" captaincy adds to the
hockey fame which his brother Gib
started for the James family back in
the season of 1935-36. Gib continued
to star through last season as a wing,
when Eldon came along to share the
spotlight by taking over the first-
string net-minding duties.
James brilliant work in the nets
last year as a sophomore was one
of the main reasons why the Wolver-
ines split even in their series with the
Gophers and finished the season in
a tie with the Minnesota sextet for
the Big Ten championship.

the Gopher's march to an undisputed

Eldon "Spike" James is the newly
elected hockey captain for the
1939-40 season. "Spike's" excellent
goal-tending has brought him
praise equal to that of his brother
Gib who starred for three seasons
as a wing on some of the Wolver-
ines most powerful puck teams.

There's quite a bit of difference
between hitting a baseball inside a:
batting cage, and trying to slap the
ball out of the reach of a waiting in-
field, so Coach Ray Fisher is trying
hard not to get over-enthusiastic soj
early in the year.
But nevertheless, a spheroid square-
ly met sounds the same indoors or
out, and with past indoor campaigns
to use for comparison, Fisher be-
lieves he has reasonable basis to ex-
pect his team to improve greatly on
its collective .253 batting average
compiled last year.

This spring Gedeon appears much
more confident and as a result should
boost his average considerably.
Pink's 1938 average was well over"
the .300 mark but most of his safeties

is an asset to any team, and in that

best ever to play here.
Pink Is Hitting
But now Charley is showing ability
to hit a ball hard, which should make
him doubly dangerous.
Elsewhere the offensive qualities
of the team show a definite tendency
upward. Walt Peckinpaugh, Dan

who hit consistently last year, all

DETROIT, March 17.-(P)-John
J. Nettche, chairman of the Michigan
Board of Athletic Control, announced
tonight the fight between John Hen-
ry Lewis, light heavyweight cham-
pion, and Dave Clark of Detroit had
been called off because of an injury
to Lewis' left eye. Lewis was to have
defended his title against the Detroit
Negro here March 31.
Hettehe said an examination of
Lewis by two physicians had revealed
the champion was "in good condition
except for his left eye."
Dr. Daniel R. Donovan, who exam-
ined Lewis, reported that "sight of
Lewis' left eye is almost nil. He was
unable to read even headline print of
a newspaper and apparently could
distinguish only light from dark."
"Examination of Lewis' left eye,"
reported Dr. C. L. Tomsu, "revealed
that he could not detect the number
of fingers held 18 inches from the
eye." The physician diagnosed the
ailment as "probable traumatic cata-
Lewis failed to appear for an addi-
tional examination today ordered by
Hettche after the two physicians
made their report. He was to leave
