Coach Ray Fisher Lists
Six Pitchers; Veterans
Hold DownEight Posts
Convinced that Michigan's fate on
the diamond this season depends on
the success or failure of the pitching
staff, Coach Ray Fisher included six
moundsmen among the 16 players
selected yesterday for the southern
The squad, which will leave tonight
for Wake Forest, N.C., to meet the
strong Wake Forest Deacons Friday,
will consist of:
Five Sophs Included
Pitchers: Jack Barry, Russ Dobson,
Danny Smick, Lyle Bond, Les Veigel,
and Mickey Stoddard.
Catchers: Leo Beebe and Forest
Infielders: Capt. Walter Peckin-
paugh, Pete Lisagor, Elmer Gedeon,
Mike Sofiak, and Bill Steppon.
Outfielders: Fred Trosko, Charley
Pink, and Harold Floersch.I
The sophomores on the list are
Bond, Veigel, Stoddard, Sofiak and
Steppon. Smick will play right field
on the days he isn't pitching, Floersch
taking over when Danny's turn on the
mound comes around.
Eight Veterans To Start
Indications are that Friday's line-
up will have eight veterans and one
sophomore, Mike Sofiak, third base-
man, being the only first year man
expected to crash the Varsity. Gedeon,
Lisagor and Peckinpaugh will com-
plete the infield at first, second and
shortstop respectively.
Pink, veteran centerfielder, will be
flanked by Trosko in left and Smick.
Beebe will be behind the plate and,
although the starting pitcher hasn't
been selected as yet, the probable
choice lies between Barry and Dob-
Pink will lead off for the Wolver-'

Coach Ray Fisher will take a
squad of sixteen Wolverine base-
ball players south today for an
eight-game vacation schedule
against college teams in Virginia,
North Carolina and Maryland. This
season will mark Fisher's nine-
teenth as a Michigan coach.
ines followed by Sofiak, Peckinpaugh,
Smick, Gedeon, Trosko, Lisagor,
Beebe, and the pitcher.
Play Elon College
Saturday the team travels to Elon
College, N.C., to meet the local nine,
while Monday and Tuesday will be
spent in Lexington, Va., Washing-
ton and Lee providing Monday's op-
position with V.M.I. due to be met
the following day. The Cadets will be
out to avenge a one hit shut-out ad-
minister by big Ed Andronik last
On Wednesday the squad will travel
to Charlottesville to meet the strong
University of Virginia nine, and on
Thursday they will run into Joe
Judge's Georgetown crew, 9-7 vic-
tors over the Wolverines last year.
A two game series with the Uni-
versity of Maryland at College Park
Friday and Saturday completes the
schedule, and the team will return to
Ann Arbor Sunday.

The good tidings caught up with
Danny Smick yesterday just before
the slugging outfielder and all around
star was ready to embark on the
spring training trip.
Big Danny received word that he
had been appointed football, basket-
ball, and track coach at Manistee
High beginning next fall. He will also
teach physical education and prob-
ably another subject.
Smick has already earned three
letters each in football and basketball,
and when he receives his third base-
ball monogram at the end of the cur-
rent season will join the select list
of nine-lettermen, becoming the fifth
in Michigan history.
Benham Elected
Swimming Captain
(Continued from Page 1)
year he stubbed his foot on the bot-
tom of the pool.
But the injuries were not enough to
keep him out of competition. In spite
of his fractured elbow, he finished
third in the National Collegiate high
diving and sixth in the low after fail-
ing to qualify in the 'Big Tens. This
year, he took thirds in these three
events behind Ohio's diving twins, Al
Patnik and Earl Clark.
The newly elected captain was
placed fourth in Edgar Kennedy's All-
America selections for 1938 and was
labeled by Olympic Diving Coach Fred
Cady as "a top notch diver, one of
the country's finest."
Coach Matt Mann has called him
"Olympic material."




Palmer To
On Initial

Will Go South
On Golf Tour

Six Matches On Card
Five veteran golfers, all lettermen,
were chosen today to comprise the
squad which Coach Ray Courtright
will take on the annual southern tour'
during Spring Vacation.
The group will be led by Capt. Bob
Palmer, and will include Jack Emery,
Lynn Riess, Tom Tussing and Jim
Loar. Palmer, Emery, Riess and Tuss-
ng are juniors and Loar is a senior.
Squad Is Limited
Due to limited traveling facilities,
Courtright could take no more than
the five men, causing him to leave be-
hind two lettermen from last year's
team, Bill Yearnd and Bill Black. Also
left behind are a number of sopho-
more and junior golfers who give in-
dication of being of Varsity caliber
and who, according to Courtright,
will be given ample opportunity to
prove their worth after vacation.
Due to adverse weather conditions,
the players have had little chance to
get outdoors and play. They have had
to be content with practicing in the
nets at the Intramural Building. As
a result, Courtright was forced to
base his selections almost entirely
on past performances.
First Match April 8
The group will travel by auto, stop-
ping first at Columbia, South Caro-
lina where they will meet the mashie-
wielders of the University of South
Carolina on April 8. On the 10th they
will meet Clemson College, the next
day will find them matching drives
with Georgia University at Athens,
followed by contests with Tennessee
at Knoxville, Cincinnati at Cincin-
nati and Ohio State at Columbus.
the latter meet will conclude the trilg
and open conference competition f(
this season.


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.

Speaking Of Boxes .. .
WHITHER long Donald Siegel of
" late? What's happened to the
big guy with that sledge-hammer
right and an ambition to pick up a
bit of change in the boxing ring? No
fights yet; no announcement; indeed,
the Siegel front has been quite static.
Michigan boxing, typically stag-
nant and stench-beridden of late, can
use a deodorant. Since fat Tony
Galento asked Natie Brown for the
next dance back in February, only
the Golden Gloves have served to re-
move the garbage left by the phonies
of tPe professional set.
In such an environment, the stage
is set for Mr. Siegel's debut. Young,
well-known, in the right weight divi-
sion, Donald's course is clear. Then
why the delay?
"I suppose a lot of people are
wondering why I haven't had
any fights since I announced my
decision to go into professional
boxing," Siegel reports. "In the
first place, I want to get into the
best possible shape and get as
much skill and training as I can
before I begin, and that's what
I'm doing now. And in the second
place, I'm not going to start on
any small town card. Chances
are I will get a preliminary bout
on the Louis-Galento card in
Madison Square Garden in June.
"Incidentally," he added de-
risively, "I saw that Galento-'
Brown joke in Detroit, and I
wouldn't be at all afraid to step
into the ring in street clothes
against either one of them.
"My first fight will be the mid-
dle of this month," he continued,
"and you'll see plenty of ine after
Siegel sounded a familiar note in
concluding, one voiced by teammate
Jack Brennan awhile ago:
"I chose boxing instead of foot-
ball because there's more money
in it, and that's the big item. I
am not looking forward to any
world's championship. I am go-
ing into the game for a year or
so, get enough money to pay off
debts acquired at college plus a
little extra, and then go into busi-
ness. The only thing that would
induce me to continue fighting
more than a year and a half
would be something like a $50,-
000 guarantee.
."You know," he grinned, "one
big reason I turned to the pro
ring is that I'm sick and tired of
hearing people say: 'you ought to
turn pro; you could go a long
way in the business.' Well, I'm
going to take my shot at it and
either prove that they are right
or wrong."
That sets the stage for Don Siegel.
Lights! Sound! Camera! Action! This
is the 'picture!
Rowe Shows Old Form
But Dodgers Beat Tigers
CLEARWATER, Fla., April 4.-(P)
-The Brooklyn Dodgers defeated the
Detroit Tigers 5 to 3 in an exhibition
game today but the Detroit club
found solace in the licking, for
Schoolboy Rowe gave indications that
he has progressed far in his come-
back fight.
The Schoolboy pitched the first
five innings for the Tigers and limit-

ed the Dodgers to three hits during
that period. With the exception of
a home run that Camilli poled over
the right field fence in the second,
no Dodger was able to pass first base
while Rowe was on the mound.
