-By BUD BENJAMIN -
In A Nutshell ...
KEN SMITH, sports analyist of the
New York Daily Mirror, the half
pint tabloid which Walter Winchell
made famous, chops down the two
major leagues into their various func-
tional divisions and rates them as
follows:
AMERICAN LEAGUE
INFIELDING: Yankees, Red
Sox, Tigers, Senators, White Sox,
Indians, Browns, Athletics.
OUTFIELDING: Yankees, Red
Sox, Indians, Athletics, White
Sox, Bgowns, Senators, Tigers.
CATCHING: Yankees, Indians,
Senators, T i g e r s, Athletics,
Browns, Red Sox, White Sox.
PITCHING: Yankees, Indians,
Tigers, Senators, Red Sox, White
Sox, Browns, Athletics.
RESERVES: Yankees, R e d
Sox, Indians, White Sox, Tigers,
Browns, Senators, Athletics.
NATIONAL LEAGUE
INFIELDING: Pirates, Giants,
Cardinals, Cubs, Dodgers, Reds,
Bees, Phillies.
OUTFIELDING: Giants, Car-
dinals, Reds, Pirates, Cubs, Bees,
Dodgers, Phillies.
CATCHING: Giants, R e d s,
Cubs, Bees, Dodgers, Pirates,
Phillies, Cardinals.
PITCHING: Reds, Giants, Bees,
Cubs, Cardinals, Phillies, Dodg-
ers, Pirates.
RESERVES: Giants, Cubs,
R4eds, Cardinals, Pirates, Dodgers;
Bees, Phillies.
Thus, if each department were of
equal significance, the teams should
finish as follows:
AMERICAN LEAGUE: Yan-
kees, Indians, Red Sox, Tigers,
Senators, White Sox, Browns,
Athletics.
NATIONAL LEAGUE: Giants,
Reds, Cubs, Cardinals, Pirates,
Bees, Dodgers, Phillies.
Obviously these functions are not
of equal importance. Pitching, say
the sages, is 90 per cent of this base-
ball business, and thus Cincinnati,
whose chief asset is a tremendous
mound crew, is receiving a huge play
by the experts.
In fact, while this analysis is in-
teresting, it is of questionable value
as a barometer. There are certain
intangibles in this sports business-
spirit, aggressiveness, alertness, con-
fidence, a whole maze of drives-
which combine to unite a team into a
cohesive whole. History aptly proves
the potency of these stimuli in the
example of teams which have shot
to the top despite mediocrity in the
ranks.

PICKUPS: Harmon Wolfe, a former
Wolverine mile champion, was a
Field House visitor yesterday ... He's
coaching track at Cleveland West
High School, Elmer Gedeon's alma
mammy, and brought along seven of
his boys to work out . . . I under-
stand that the Detroit Athletic Club's
big swimming show will be held April
15 with a host of stars from the na-
tion at large on hand.,. Incidentally
my informant reports that the seats
are listed at $3.50 per squat with all
reservations taken . .. Formal attire is
required, even among the swimming
contestants . .. As a good friend of
mine in the Athletic Department
would say: "Lawd A'mighty!" . . . A
contributor forwards a clipping from
The Alalde, University of Texas al-
umni magazine, reporting that the
institution is building a new dormi-
tory to accommodate 100 University

athletes . . . Not a bad thought ...
Sonny Hoffman, who was forced to
drop out of school this semester due
to illness, writes from Florida that a
high school kid down thar ran the
120-yard high hurdles in 14 flat the
other day . . . Swimming experts
claim that Dick Hough's terrific speed
is due to the fact that he can use the
wide breast-stroke kick and the but-
terfly arm stroke simultaneously,
something that few swimmers have

Fisher's Ace Twirler

A possible starter on the moundr
in Michigan's opener against the
Wake Forest nine Friday is Jack
Barry, junior right-hander. Barry
moved up from his substitute role
of last season to No. 1 hurler on
this year's team.

Wolverine Nine
To Aeet Strong
Southern Foes
(Editor's Note: This is the first in a
series on the southern teams to be met
on the baseball team's spring vacation
trip.)
B y HERB LEV
Michigan's baseball team will leave
for the Southland this week for an
eight game trip which is expected to
serve mainly as a warm-up for the
Big Ten season, but latest reports
from Dixie bring the news that the
good old days are over, and the trip
will have to be regarded as anything
but a pleasure jaunt.
In the past few years college base-
ball in the South has progressed to
a point where it ranks with that
played anywhere in the land, and
judging by the records of the south-
ern nines in intersectional games, the
Wolverines will find their foes any-
thing but easy pickings.
First Stop-Wake Forest
The first stop along the way comes
Friday, when a very formidable Wake
Forest nine will provide the opposi-
tion. Last season the Deacons ranked
among the top teams in the nation,
winning the Southeastern Confer-
ence title, and beating such teams as
Duke and North Carolina in doing so.
Now the North Carolinians are
said to be tougher than ever and in
their last start shut out Michigan
State, 1-0. Ed Scarborough, who
struck out 16 Spartans while allow-
ing but three to hit safely, is a likely
starter against Michigan, and will
face either Jack Barry or uss Mob
son.
Elon College Next
Elon College, the Wolverines' Satur-
day foe, may be a bit easier but still
can't be regarded too lightly. Last
year Coach Horace Hendricksen's
nine took 15 out of 20, and reinforced
by a group of outstanding freshmen
(there's no residence rule at Elon)
will be hoping to better this record
Lexington, Va., will be Monday's
destination, and here Washington
and Lee will be seeking to avenge a
12-1 trouncing administered by the
Wolverines last season. The Generals
beat Ohio State last week, 8-6 and
are said to beigreatly improved, espec-
ially in the hitting department.
The team will remain in Lexington
overnight and meet V.M.Io on Tues-
day.
FRESHMAN BASEBALL
All freshman baseball candidates
are requested to report at 4 p.m.
Monday, April 17, at the fresh-
man diamond on South Ferry
Field. Everyone must bring his
own equipment.

Weir. To Take
Eight Netmen
On Spring Trip
Washington And Lee Team
Will Be Varsity's First
Dixie Opponent
Coach Leroy Weir yesterday an-
nounced the eight members of the
Varsity tennis team who will leave
with him this Saturday on the an-
nual spring trip into the South.
Capt. Don Percival will lead the
squad, consisting of himself, three
lettermen, and four newcomers. The
lettermen are Steve Woolsey, Ed l
Morris, and John Kidwell; the new-
comers, Jim Tobin, Howard Bacon,
Jim Porter and Sam Durst,
Face Six Schools
This southern trip, is the second in
invasion of the Southland, the first
two years for the Varsity. Last year's
after a layoff of 20 years, saw the
team come back with a record of
three wins and two losses. The com-
ing trip will see the squad in action
against six different schools.
The first stop on its schedule is a
two-day stayover at Lexington, Va.,
April 10 and 11, where it will meet
Washington and Lee University and
V.M.I. on successive days. V.M.I.
defeated the varsity last year, 6-3,
and this match will give the Wol-
verines a chance for revenge.,
Had Planned To Leave Earlier
Coach Weir had intended to leave
Ann Arbor a few days sooner and
thereby give the .team an opportunity
to practice on the new clay courts
at Washington and Lee, but accord-
ing to latest reports, they will not be
available for use until the day of the
match.
From Lexington, the team will
move to Charlottesville, Va., where it
will meet the University of Virginia
April 12. The remaining games
on the schedule are against George
Washington University, April 13,
the University of Maryland, April 14,
and Duquesne, April 15.

The Michigan Ship of Swim was
pulling into port for the year, to ven-
ture out again only in a short for-
aging expedition to Detroit to help
dress up the annual Detroit Athletic
Club exhibition, April 15. But
before looking to the future Admiral
Matt took one brief backward glance,
liked what he saw, and dwelt a little
on "a very enjoyable season.,,
A brief tally showed Michigan's re-
ascension to the aquatic acme, which
was climaxed by the Big Ten and
National Collegiate crowns, blemished
by a pair of ties with Ohio State. On
the ship's log were convincing victor-
ies over Michigan State, Iowa, Iowa
State, Northwestern, Minnesota and
Yale. Tom Haynie regained his Na-
tional 220- and 440-yard free style
championships after a year's lapse.
"Good-Time" Charley Barker, the
sensational -sophomore, captured the
50-yard title, and gained a half share
in the century. The Michigan free-
style relay team of Barker, Ed Hutch-
ens, Haynie and Walt Tomski was an
easy winner."
Hundred Was Close
The AAU's at Columbus would
have been anticlimactic had Matt
elected to take an official Michigan
team but even swimming unattached,
Wolverine swimmers, past, present
and future, provided some thrills. The
finish of the 100 was, according to
Matt, "a mess." The race was so
close that you could have mixed the
names of the five finalists (exclud-
ing. Peter Fick who clearly won in
52.3), put them in a hat and get the
order in which they finished. Howie
Johnson, a Yale -freshman, was sec-
ond and they timed him 52.6. They
gave Otto Jaretz third and Gus
Sharemet, a freshman here, fourth
but both were clocked in 52.5. Ed
Kirar,, captain of last year's team,
finished fifth with 52.7 and Tomski
sixth in 52.9.

It is no problem to sell a man his second
Dobbs hat-or his thirty-second. Once a
Dobbs man, always a Dobbs man. The dis-
tinguished quality of the hat and the dis-
tinguished look, it gives its wearer are
unmistakable.
So we are looking for men who have
never worn a Dobbs hat -who have never
known the complete satisfaction that comes
with a Dobbs hat.
Traditionally Dobbs hats are the hats of
successful men or men on the way to success.
Through the decades of Dobbs leader-
ship, the Dobbs label literally has been the
hat-mark a gentleman's self-respect. Expen-
sive? They are not.
