THE MICHIGAN DAILY
By BUD BENJAMIN--
RANDOM Ramblings . ..
Fritz Crisler isnt the only Var-
sity coach concerned over Bob West-
fall's eligibility struggle . . . Bob is
reported to be a fine catching pros-
pect and as such will be mighty use-
ful to Ray Fisher after Leo Beebe's
graduation . . . Before yesterday's
Hillsdale game Danny Smick had
gone hitless in his last 15 times at
bat and his slump had reached such
proportions that he hadn't even met
a ball squarely in batting practice
for several days - .-.
Lyle Bond, who pitched the
last five innings against Hills-
dale, had special reasons why
he wanted a decisive victory .
Lyle and Glen Sanford, the Hills-
dale flinger, were high school
teammates in Clare, Mich., and
a loss to little Hillsdale would
force the Michigan sophomore
to hang his head in shame the
next time he went home . . .
After -an absence of several years
from the Intramural curriculum, the
engineering school is reviving interest
in inter-class games with a base-
ball league made up of the teams
from the different classes . . The
move is being sponsored by the En-
gineering Council . . . How would a
medley relay team composed of Bill
Beebe, James Skinner and Gus Share-
met fair in intercollegiate swim com-
petition? . . Such a unit is a dis-
tinct possibility to represent Michi-
gan two years hence . . Or if you
will, substitute Francis Heydt for
Beebe . . .
Ohio State entertains its base-
ball fans before game-time and
between innings with a record
machine and loud speaker com-
bination . . When perfected
this system will be used to an-
nounce lineups, scores, and sub-
stitutions . . . A novel idea
Herm Fishman, last year's south-
paw pitching ace, is now pitching
for Winston-Salem of the Pied-
mont League . . Fishman's
younger brother, Milton, amem-.
ber of the freshman nine at pres-
ent, is also a pitcher, but right-
handed -. Speaking of kid
brothers, young Al Wistert will'
seek a catching berth on the
freshman team at the conclusion
of spring football practice . .
A high school lad named Bob John-
son threw the discus 152 feet in an
Ohio state scholastic meet last week-
end . . Johnson hails from Poland,
Ohio, Norm Purucker's home town
. . In the same meet John Linta of
Mansfield, pole-vaulted 13 feet 5
inches . . . Both good enough for
high Conference places . . . Ohio
State's recent basketball conquests
may prove costly to next fall's Buck-
eye grid hopes . . . Don Scott and
Charley Maag, third stringers on the
Conference cage champions but pros-
pective football regulars, fell down in
their studies during the long cage
season and will have to step some to
become eligible in the fall . . .
Michigan Nine Overpowers Hillsdale In
Dobson, Bond Allow Six
Hits As Wolverines Win
Fifth Victory Of Year
(Continued rrom Page 1)
Hillsdale's batting order was espe-
cially weak, and cannot rightfully be
considered as a criterion to measure
Dobson in the early innings some-
what resembled the Dobson of the
practice sessions as he blazed his fast
ball by the Dales with regularity.
However, the big .Ann Arbor boy
slowed down a bit in the fifth and
appeared to be tiring when removed.
Bond worked the last five innings,
and although he didn't appear quite
as fast as in earlier appearances, the
bespectacled sophomore showed that
he had what it takes in the pinches.
Michigan's first score came in the
third. Mike Sofiak reached first on
second baseman Charley Donnely's
bobble, advanced to second on Cap-
tain Peckinpaugh's sacrifice bunt,
stole third and counted on Elmer
Gedeon's Texas League double.
Hillsdale came back to tie it up in
the seventh. Gene Zaiser, the Dales'
gargantuan first baseman, singled off

Stars Against Hillsdale
Jack Emery Seeks Continuation
Of Long Line Of Golf Triumphs
By LARRY ALLEN
Jack Emery walked up to the ball
that lay on the 18th green of the
University Course, carefully lined up
his putt, and calmly stroked the ball
into the cup to give himself a 74 for
his daily practice round.
A 74 on the longvdifficult Univer-
sity Course is an accomplishment at
any time, but to Jack Emery, the
"mighty mite''of the golf squad who
.doesn't top the five-foot mark by
more than a couple of inches, carding
74's is an everyday occurrence re-
gardless of the course he is playing.
Second Varsity Year
Jack, now playing his second year
with the varsity, was not with the
squad last season, but since return-
ing to the lineup, he has held down
the number one spot on Ray Court-
right's team. On the spring trip
south, from which the Wolverines re -
turned unbeaten, Emery gathered his
share of points for Michigan with his
low 70 games.
He carded his best score in the
match with Georgia Tech when he
shot a 72, downing the engineers'
number one man, the younger broth-
er of Charlie Yates, who last year de-
feated Michigan's Johnny Fischer in
the semi-final round before going onl
to capture the British Amateur Open.
Has Entered Opens
Emery has qualified and played in
the last three National Amateur
Opens, and two years ago qualified
and played in the National Open
which was held in Detroit. Jack has
also collected his share of silverware,
for last year, besides winning his club
championship at Lockmoor for the
third successive year, he walked off
with top honors in the Grosse Isle
With such an impressive record be-
hind him, genial young Emery looks
forward to still more triumphs on the
links. He will not, he said, turn pro-
fessional,hand the only association
between his golf and business career
will be that which comes under the
heading of golf course salesmanship.
Gridders To Play
.In Stadium Soon,
By TOM PHARES
Michigan gridiron fans will get a
prevue of things to come next season
when Coach Fritz Crisler turns his
proteges loose in an intra-squad
game the afternoon of Saturday, May
13 at the Stadium-if he has enough
men by that time. And don't laugh.
It's no joke to -Fritz.
"Where," he inquired yesterday,
"do these schools find these 150-men
squads in the spring? By golly, we
issued 85 uniforms at the start of
the spring drills and 30 have dropped
out already. How do you like that?"
Michigan's head coach is also some-
what disturbed concerning the condi-
tion of the squad. The bad weather
before 'vacation has held up things
somewhat and consequently drills for
the next two weeks will feature hard
work -and-- plenty of ,scrimmaging.
Crisler may take the team to the
stadium May 6 "to get 'em used to
seeing concrete" but bad weather can
The game May 13 will be part of
the seventh annual spring athletic
clinic foir ,high school students from
all parts of the state. From10' to 12
in the morning, the Michigan grid-
iron coaching staff and squad will
demonstrate line and backfield play.
In the afternoon, the high school stu-
dents will be admitted free to the
Indiana-Michigan baseball game and
the Ohio.State-Michigan track meet
preceding the football game at 4 p.n
Foxx Wins For Boston
Theta Xi Victorious
In Softball Opener
Theta Xi, 1938 fraternity softball
champions, made their opening bid to
defend that crown when they
trounced Sigma Phi 17-5 'yesterday
behind the six-hit pitching of Jack
Keller. Mason, Theta Xi third base-
man, led his team's hitting attack
with three safeties.
Sigma Nu staved off a last inning
four run rally to edge Beta Theta Pi
8-7. Robert Bragg and George
Cheffy were the winning battery.
Jim Lovett pitched his Trigon team
to a 11-4 win over Tau Kappa Epsi-
lon, and Alpha Delta Phi emerged
victorious over Chi Psi 6-4.

Dick Shroth, Theta Chi, held Kap-
pa Delta Rho in check as his team-
mates pounded out;a 15-3 win, and
Kiroes tied Theta Xi for scoring hun-
ors of the day when they scored 17
runs to down the Wolverines 17-9.
Dizzy Trout Is Routed
As Browns Win, 7-2
DETROIT, April 25. -(/P)- Two
hopeful graduates from the Texas
League, Paul (Dizzy) Trout of De-
troit and Fred Kramer of the St.
Louis Browns, squared off on the
mound today, and the Brownie boy
got a wide decision, 7 to 2.
Making their Major League de-
buts, the two youngsters went at
things in opposite styles. Trout hurled
a perfect first three innings and
then blew up. In contrast, Kramer
was smashed hard in the opening
frame, and thereafter shut out the

A case of mumps might be the de-
termining factor in the outcome of
the dual tennis match between the
Michigan varsity squad, and that of
the University of Chicago Thursday
The person afflicted with the
mumps is Bill Murphy, number one'
man of the Maroon net squad. Bill,
ranked number one in the Middle
West, picked up the mumps from his
twin brother Chet last March, and
as a result missed several of his final
How Chicago will miss theri key'
man during 'the coming season,
is readily seen by examining the
results of the Maroonis on their re-
cent southern trip. On that trip,
they defeated Alabama, 6-1, defeated
Spring Hill, 4-3, lost to Tulane, 4-3,
and tied Texas, 3-3.
However, even without Bill Murphy
in number one spot, the Chicago
team will present one of the 'most
skilled net squads in collegiate cir-
cles. Last year, the Maroons mopped
up the Big Ten, losing only one match
and winning 60 in conference dual
meets, and scoring a grand slam in
the conference meet.
Bill Murphy, whose eligibility is in
question, is ranked Class "A" na-
tionally, and in the Midwest' and
Chicago rankings is number two, pre-
ceded only by Bobby Riggs. He was
undefeated in collegiate'dual matches
last year, and won the Chicago city
If he is unable to play, his twin
brother, Chet, will move up from sec-
ond spot into the vacant number one
place. Chet is also Class "A" in the
national standings, and in Chicago
and the Middle West ranks number
three, behind his brother and Riggs.
Like Bill, he was undefeated in col-
lege play last year.
Charles Shostrum, brother of John
Shostrum, who was Maroon captain
and Big Ten singles champion last
year, is regular number three man
and ranks number five in both Chi-
cago and the Middle West. Undefeat-
ed in college matches last year, he
sdored an unusual triumph in over-
coming Riggs in the Chicago city
