THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Meets Champ To Jay

Five Track men Lost To Hoyt;
Team Still Favored Over Illini
. .* 1:
THE SWIMMING banquet last
night at the Union was a pleas-
ant mixture of sentimentality and
horseplay as nearly 50 people gath-
ered to do honor to Michigan's Na-
tional and Conference titleholders.t
Matt and Mrs. Mann, squad mem-
bers and dates, a few parents, and
three members of the press sat around?
the horseshoe table in 319 and al-
ternately chewed over the 1939 sea-
son and a rather tough steak pre-<
pared by the Union chef.
Athletic banquets can be very
pleasurable or very annoy-
ing. Excessive tear jerking, long l
winded speeches, and a poor meal
are some of the nemeses com-
mon to these affairs, but despite l

and this rosy cheeked yearling gave
me some riotous moments.
I have heard stories of the raven-
ous appetites of Harold Floersch, the
baseballer, and Ed Christy, the soph-;
omore fullback, but in young Share-

husky Hamtramck product downed
two fruit salads, three steaks, two,
dishes of peas, countless rolls, coffee,
two glasses of cream, ice cream and
innumerable cup cakes. Last seen he;

mate whose pockets bulged from a
liberal snatch of rolls, were seen en-

Usually the neophytes managed a

to the frail Charley Barker, a

a baby doll book to woman killer
Tomski, a memorandum book to
the forgetful Bill Beebe, and a
picture of Shirley Temple to mis-
ogynist Jim Welsh.
Interspersed in the horseplay were
some fitting tributes to each team
member delivered by Haigh and con-
tinued eating by Sharemet.
The banquet concluded or the seri-
ous side. Tom Haynie, the outgoing
captain, was presented a handsome
traveling bag by his mates which
should serve him well on his trip to
England this summer. Said Haynie
in accepting the gift:
"I want to pay special tribute
tonight to Matt Mann, a grand
coach and besides that a coach
who rates ,as a man. Hal Ben-
ham, your new captain, should
have the best team in Michigan
history next year."
Mann was presented with a beau-
tiful electric clock, fashioned in the
nautical motif, by the squad mem-
bers and wound up the evening with
the following words:
"Fellows, this is a happy end-

ever had in swinuning. Next year
we should have an even better
team-but there will never be a*
better team in spirit. I want to

innings for Michigan, pitched good
ball except for two fatal lapses in
the third and fifth innings.
Lyle Bond worked the eighth and
set the Buckeyes down in order, ex-
hibiting a fine fast ball in doing so.
The bespectacled sophomore from
Clare has looked better each time he
has toed the mound and will undoubt-
edly be promoted to a starting role
in the near future.
Buckeyes Score First
The Bucks counted first in the
third inning when Ralph Waldo
doubled and scored on Meyer's long
single. In the fifth, football star Jim-
my Sexton who played left field,
opened with a double to deep left and
Meyers came through with his sec-
ond hit to send him across.
In the seveilth, the Buckeyes gar-
,nered their final marker. Waldo
opened with a single and was sacri-
ficed to second by Dagenhard. Dick
Wulfhorst next up, grounded to Mike
Sofiak and Waldo ran far out of the
baseline to avoid being tagged by
the Wolverine third baseman. The
rule says that a runner is allowed
only three feet on either side, but
Waldo was called safe at third and
counted a moment later on Meyers'
long sacrifice fly.
Wolverines Muff Chance
Michigan's big chance came in the
eighth when pinch-hitter Bill Step-
pon and Charley Pink walked and
Sofiak beat out an infield single fill-
ing the bases. But then Capt. Walt
Peckinpaugh hit into a double play.
Steppon scored but the rally was end-
ed a minute later as Freddie Trosko
popped to second.
The two teams will meet again to-
morrow with either Smick or Bond
scheduled to face Gene Dornbrook,
Ohio's sophomore star.

Coach Charley Hoyt thinks he will
have a good track team outdoors this
year if-and the "if" looms larger

his complete squad to knock off dual
meet victories over Illinois, Indiana,
and Ohio State but when the Confer-
ence meet rolls around he may need
all the points he can get. It's the Big
Ien meet-his last-that counts with
Charley, you know.
Elmer Gedeon, number one hurd-
ler in the Big Ten, is not a victim of
any muscular disorders as are the
others, but the big Clevelander is
suffering from a malady just as
threatening to Michigan track. Big'
Ged is a victim of "baseball bug." HIe
has been -so successful in early sea-
son games with Ray Fisher's' team
that he may decide to venture on the
track only to defend his Conference
championship over the high sticks
May 19 and 20.
Wes Allen is another source of
worry in the Wolverine camp. His
knee ailment is slowly responding to
treatment but he will be out for two
more weeks at least.
Quarter-miler Doug Hayes, dash-
man Warren Breidenbach, and hurd-
ler John Kutsche are victims of min-
or muscle injuries and did not make
the trip to Champaign.
Sore arms were also a problem this
week as javelin throwers Fred Os-
berg and Jack Kinsey, both veterans,
strained their arms and Ken Doherty
was forced to name Perry Kimerer,
Bob Hockberger, and Dick Bennett,
all new men, for the spear tossing
assignment at Champaign.
Despite their imposing hospital list
the Wolverines will be top-heavy fav-
orites against the Illini. Last year the
Hoytmen rolled up a total double that
of the Johnson coached outfit and
there is little in the Illinois roster
that suggests an appreciable cut will
be made in that margin today. Coach
Hoyt's reserve strength appears good
enough to take over the Illini's best.
