All In A Day. .
TYPICAL DAY of Michigan's typi-
cal student:
Up at 5:30 a.m. and to the open
window and exercises. Jumped into
an ice cold shower, which makes you
tingle and glow, more exercises, and
then prepared my own breakfast of
goat's milk, caviar, and zwiebach.
Out into the open country for an
hour's walk before classes and ended
up at the very top of a tall tree in the
Arboretum. You can see just heaps
and gobs of stuff from this lofty
perch. It's peachy.
Two classes and bored by that
first lecture. So brandishing my
trusty pea-shooter spent the hour
popping away at the prof. Final
score: 25 shots, 14 misses, 6 body
hits, 4 forehead hits, and 1 bulls-
eye which popped the end of the
lecturer's proboscis.
Decided to forego further academic
pursuits, so spent the rest of the
morning riding in the back of an open
car down State Street with a sub-
machine gun in my lap. Finally
smashed most of the shop windows,
hit my favorite cop broadsides, and
wounded four anti-saloon league
members.
Bombed the economics building and
was surprised to find four refugees
from the World War draft escape
from a subterranean h i d e o u t.
"Boches," one of them yelled fran-
tically.
Got into a crap game in the center
of the diagonal but quit because one
of the sharpies insisted that the dice
must be bounced off the library
steps.
Decided to take a swim at the
Union. With a rare gusto, pre-
pared for the dip, showered, and
with one impetuous leap, dove in-
to the cool, green waters of the
pool. Someone screamed . Why
don't they tell me it's womens
hour?
Visited a band rehearsal. Hand-
cuffed Professor Revelli and inserted
'alum in the mouthpieces of the tubas.
Then sucking a lemon in front of the
trumpet corps sat back and listened.
Sounded like the Schnicklefritz Band.
Clad in a tiger skin loin cloth, pon-
gee shirt, and button shoes, hopped
on my scooter and tore over to the
Beta House for a date with Eli.
'Emptied the blocking dummies be-
fore football practice and filled them
with cement.
Went to swimming practice
with a box full of itching powder.
Left empty-handed.
Smashed all the drills in the Dent.
clinic.
Listened to Guy Lombardo's broad-
cast.
Read the women's page of The
Daily.
Roller-skated through the, Rack-
ham Building and felt pretty bad
when those carpets in the Auditori-
um began to rip.
Took my "Moose-Horn" and
blew the mating-call under 'the
loek in Angell Hall. Classes dis-
missed.
Went over to the high school for
practice teaching in kindergarten
training. Surprised to 'find Davis

training. Surprised to find David
Laing and Charles Kettler members
of the class.
Read "Tom Swift and His Big Base
Drum," cracked my knuckles, and
went to bed.

Six More Players
LAKELAND, Fla., April 1.--(P)--
Release of six players to Toledo of
the American Association was an-
nounced today by Jack Zeller, gen-
eral manager of the Detroit Tigers.
The athletes are pitchers Joseph
Rogalski, Lloyd Dietz and John Tate,
infielder Benny McCoy and Boyd
Perry and catcher Edward (Dixie)
Parsons.
Yesterday Zeller sent , outfielder
Frank Secory to the Toledo club on
option. Secory left for Beaumont,
Tex., today to join the Mudhens, ac-
companied by Cletus (Boots) Pof-
fenberger. Zeller said the Detroit or-
ganization was defenitely through
with the eccentric Poffenberger and
that if no major or minor league club
wanted to buy him, he would be given
an unconditional release.
All of the players sent to Toledo
are under 24-hour option.

Four Hurlers
Feature Drill
On Wet Field
Lyle Bond Allows One Hit,
strikes Out Six In Four
Inning Stay On Mound
A cold wind and a water-logged
diamond tried hard to keep the Var-
sity nine indoors yesterday, but Coach
Ray Fisher didn't wish to disappoint
the crowd which had turned out for
the baseball clinic, so he sent the
boys through a stiff nine-inning drill
on a temporary diamond set up in
a dry spot in left field.
Four potential first stringers, Russ
Dobson, Jack Barry, Les Veigel, and
Lyle Bond divided the mound duties
for the two teams, and all turned in
commendable performances, con-
sidering the weather conditions, par-
ticularly Bond. The bespectacled
sophomore, hurling for the first team,
alternated his fast ball with a sweep-
ing curve tc hold the subs com-
pletely at bay.t
In the four innings he worked, he!
struck out six men, and allowed only
one hit, a scratch single by Mike
Rodnick. Bond's last two perform-
ances have greatly enhanced his
chances of making next week's spring
trip.
Netherton Recovering
Meahwhie eCoacheFisher was be-
moaning the fact that only three
practice days remain before thesouth-
ern trek, and that if the weather
doesn't clear up sufficiently to allow
suitable playing conditions for a regu-
lation game tomorrow, he will have
a hard time making his choices, es-
pecially for the pitching staff. The
fact that Tom Netherton, a likely
looking right hander is recovering
from a severe case of tonsilitis and
missed practice all last week compli-
cated matters isomewhat, but it is
hoped that Tom will be well enough
for a final trial this week.
Mike Sofiak, the flashy Gary sopho-
more, led the batters yesterday af-
Lernoon and substantiated his claim
on the third base post. Elmer Ged-
eon and Leo Beebe also looked good
at the plate, the latter smacking a
long home run on one of his trips.
Kremer Visitorj
A visitor at practice yesterday was
Merle Kremer, captain and leading
hitter of last year's nine. "Butch"
was greatly impressed by the' team's
showing and predicted a big season
for the Wolverines if the pitching
holds up. He believes that Dobson
was a much improved pitcher over
last season and should be a big win-
ner if he gains his confidence, and
also liked Sofiak's work at the hot
corner.
A squad of 16 men will leave for
the South later hths weekbut Fisher
has made no definite choices as yet,
not even as to the number for each
position. The only sure bet now is
that there will be two catchers chos-
en and that they will be Beebe and
Forest Evashevski.
Clay Bryant Pitches Cubs
To Win Over White Sox
PHOENIX, Ariz., April 1.-(A)-
Clay Bryant, making his first exhibi-
tion start of the spring season, be-
came the second Chicago Cubs pitch-
er to go the route today when he
limited the Chicago White Sox to
seven hits, winying 7 to 5.
After a shaky start in the first
inning when the Sox scored all their
runs aided by errors, Bryant settled
down and hurled shutout ball.

Freshman Tennis Squad Is Best

Icy ARNOLD DANA
Relaxing after a hotly contested
game of doubles with three of the
members of his varsity squad, Coach
Leroy Weir predicted that this year's
freshman squad is one of the most
promising he has ever seen.
Although he is only in his second
year as head tennis coach at Michi-
gan, Coach Weir said that his com-
parison was made on the basis of
other teams of similar experience
which he has seen and coached. At
the beginning of the year over 35
ambitious yearlings reported out for
the squad. At present, the number
of those who should make the varsity
next year has dwindled down to a
handful. But this handful is one
containing much skill and experi-
ence.
Rotberg Leads All
Leading the squad at present is Sam
Rotberg. Sam is a junior transfer
from Wayne University, where last
year he played number two on the
team. He has one year of varsity
competition remaining, next year.
Sam is also all-campus badminton
champion, which title he won on the]
night of the Spring Open House.

0

Fred Trosko, all around athlete
from Flint, whose hitting in prac-
tice thus far has been so impres-
sive that he appears slated for a
regular outfield position. Trosko
is also a fine defensive player and
has one of the best arms on the
team.

Close behindi Samn, is LJawtonz Ham-
mett. Hammett was the winner of
both the fall and winter all-campus
tournaments, and is one of the steadi-
est men in the freshman group. +
Other members of the team who
should add to the varsity strength
next year are Tom Gamon. runner
up in the winter all-campus tennis
tournament. Jack Coleman, Wayne
Stille and Dick Franco. Franco is
a lefthander, as is Rotberg, and he
has a tremendous amount of power,
but has a definite tendency towards
wildness. However, Coach Weir is of
the opinion that this wildness can
be tamed down considerably, and
that his power can be utilized to its
full extent.
To Meet Varsity
The frosh have been working to-
wards a dual match with the Varsity
which takes place Wednesday and
Thursday of this week. The match
will serve a double purpose. First of
all, it will be a warmup for the varsity
before it embarks on its training trip
into the South, and secondly, it will
serve as a test of the actual ability.
of the freshmen as compared to the
Varsity.
Wildness and slamming the ball,
seem to be the two outstanding
faults that Coach Weir seems to find
in the freshman group as a whole.
"Wildness is a natural fault which
can be overcome with much practice,"
he said. "But slamming the ball may
be adopted after seeing a professional
player in action."
"It seems that youngsters, especial-
ly of the high school age, see some of
these masters in action,'and observ-
ing the ease with which they drive a
ball with terrific force over the net;
set out and try to copy their style.
They do not seem to realize that these
men have been at it for years."

Drillon's Solo Dash Wins
For Leafs In Overtime;
Rangers Tie Up Series
TORONTO, April 1.--UP)-Gordon
Drillon, 23-year-old wingman who
led the National Hockey League in
scoring a year ago, carried the Toron-
to Maple Leafs into the final round
of the Stanley Cup playoffs tonight
as he shot an overtime goal to beat
the Detroit Red Wings 5-4 in the
third and deciding game of their!
semi-final series.
The victory gave the Leafs, third
during the regular league season, the
right to mecet the winner of the Bos-
ton-New York Rangers series in the
Cup finals.
Drillon Makes Four Points
The goal, scored after five minutes
and 42 'seconds of "sudden death"
overtime play, was Drillon's fourth
scoring point of the game. He assisted
Nick Metz in scoring the opening
goal in the first period, then rapped
one home himself to make it 2-1 in
the same frame. Then in the third
period he aided Bob Davidson on the
goal that evened the count, after
Charley Conacher, former Leaf star,

had put Detroit ahead for the. first
and only time.
NEW YORK, April 1.-- iPd-Power
plays put on each time with their
rivals a man short gave the New York
Rangers the deciding goals for a 3-1
victory over the Boston Bruins tonight
before a capacity crowd of 16,630 at'
Madison Square Garden and sent
their National Hockey League Stan-
ley Cup playoff series into a seventh
and final game for decision.
Rookie Scores
Bill Carse, rookie forward brought
up from the Philadelphia "Farm,"
only a few games ago and sharp.-
shooting AlexShibicky droveshome
the winning goals. Mel Hill was in
the penalty box for holding when
Carse, in a power-play scramble
around the Bruin cage, found the
puck on the end of his stick and
slapped it past Frankie Brimsek, the
Bruins' all-league goalie. The time
was 5/57 of the third period.
At 9:25, with veteran Eddie Shore
on the sidelines for a similar of-
fense, Shibicky climaxed a neat pass-
ing combine from brothers Neil and
MacColville to rifle a 20-foot blast
into the Boston nets from 20 feet out.
