The Wolverine track team came
back to Ann Arbor from the Penn
Relays Sunday with one individual
championship, Bill Watson's in the
shot put, and memories of two bit-
terly cold (for a track meet) days
in Philadelphia.
Watson was the outstanding per-
former for the Michigan team. Be-
sides his win in the shot put, Big
Bill annexed seconds in the broad
jump and discus throw.
Bill finally broke into the win
column against Francis Ryan when
he out-tossed the Columbia shot-put-
ter by two feet in setting a Relays
record of 52 ft. 9 in. Bill last beat
Ryan in 1937 and Friday's win was
his second in eight meetings between
the two.
I According to Ken .Doherty, who
made the trip in place of head coach
Charley Hoyt, the Michigan team
showed well in each of the relay
events. The mile team, of course, was
the standout, finishing second to
Pitt. Incidentally, the time of the
Wolverine foursome, as caught by
three timers, according to Doherty,
was 3:15.8 rather than the 3:16.4
reported by AP.
Doherty also brought back the in-
formation that Warren Breiden-
back's 440-yard leg was around :47.5,
and in turning in the best time of his
career the speedy sophomore picked
Diz Dean Is Shelled
In Stratton Benefit
CHICAGO, May --()-Monty
Stratton won upwards of $25,000 and
Dizzy Dean lost the ball game today.
The Chicago White Sox, for whom
Stratton pitched last year, knocked
Dean out of the box and won an ex-
hibition intra-city game, 4 to 1.
All receipts from 25,594 spectators
went to Stratton, whose gameness
and courage after he lost his leg in a
hunting accident last November in-
spired the benefit game.
The Sox belted Dean and his $185,-
000 arm out of the box after four in-
nings. It was Dean's mound debut
since the season began.
Dizzy, tossing up only his famous
"nothing" ball, was no mystery to the
American Leaguers. After giving up
only one hit in the first two innings,
he lost control of the situation in the
third and was touched for four hits
and three runs, sewing up the ball
game. John Whitehead went the route
for the Sox, scattering the Cubs' 10
hits and pitching shutout ball for the
first six innnigs.
Vice-President Harry Grabiner of
the White Sox said Stratton would
realize "between $25,000 and $30,-
000" out of the game, but added the
definite amount would not be known
for two or three days.

champ, Long John Woodruff, who
was far and away the meet's out-
standing performer.
The two-mile team also came in for
its share of praise. With Ralph
Schwarzkopf running a 1:56 half-
mile after a fast mile less than an
hour before, the Wolverines averaged
slightly over that figure to finish
third behind N.Y.U. and Indiana.
Despite the cold weather in Phila-
delphia the performances compared
well with those of the weekend's rival

Seven Michigan swimmers have
been selected to give a series of ex-'
hibitions in England, it was an-
nounced last night by swimming
coach Matt Mann.
Those chosen are Capt. Tom Hay-
nie, '39, Captain-elect Hal Benham,
'40, Ed Hutchens, '40, John Haigh,
'40, Jim Welsh, '41, Bill Beebe, '41,
and Tom Williams, '42. It is possible
that two more men will be selected
later, Mann said.
The squad will sail from New York
on the Queen Mary Sept. 6 after hav-
ing participated as a team in the
National Outdoor AAU's in Detroit
Aug. 24, 25 and 26. They will be
overseas six weeks and will give 20
exhibitions. "Only war can stop us,"
claimed Matt.
The invitation, extended by the
Hove Swimming Club of Sussex un-
der the auspices of the Amateur
Swimming Association of England,
is the first ever made to any college
or university to send a team to swim
abroacd. Tlhe natators will be the
first team representing the Un iver-
sity to go abroad since Ray Fisher
took his baseball team to Japan in
The selected seven-man squad em-
bodies all the component parts of a
well-rounded swim team. Haynie,
Hutchens, Welsh and Williams all
swim the free style distances and the
sprints, Haigh and Williams will do
the breast stroking, Beebe, Williams
and Haynie the back stroking and
Benham will take care of the diving.
The squad will not engage in regu-
lar meets but "if there is a national
championship floating around we'll
be only too glad to do our share" said
Baseball's Big Six

HE AVERAGE golf tournament takes three days with thirty-six holes
usually played on the final day. Some match play tournaments such as
the National Amateur require a day of qualifying before the individual
matches begin, and in some tournaments, play includes two matches daily
for two or three days. The average round of golf takes about three hours
which means that on some days the golfers must undergo the mental strain
for at least six hours. And professional golfers, as well as many of the
country's leading amateurs, play in one tournament immediately after an-
other as they compete for money, medals and glory.
Contrast to this, the boxer who fights for anywhere from a hundred
seconds a la Louis to the 15 rounds maximum of three minutes each,
about every two or three months. Or, the football player who competes
in from say eight to eighteen games a year in each of which tabulations
have shown there is about 11 minutes of action. And the player who is in
the game every minute is by far the exception.
Concentration and coordination in athletics go hand in hand, for the
former is necessary in order to attain the latter. In golf, a greater degree of
coordination is necessary than in any other sport, from which it follows, of
couse, that more concentration is necessary in golf. And continued concen-
tration is, in itself, a tiresome strain as any student will testify. Although,
his physical exercise has been pratically nil, the student will be exhausted
after a hard day of studying.
* * *
ON THE coordination side, the basketball player can flick the ball through
' the hoop with a one-hand push shot, the tennis player can return a shot
with a movement of the feet and a stroke of the arm, the erstwhile Davey
O'Brien can throw a perfect forward pass with the proper arm action co-
ordinated with the wrist movement, and even the more complicated motion
of the pitcher does not approach the body coordination necessary to hit a
golf ball consistently and accurately.
The golfer must control and time the movements of both of his
hands, both of his wrists, both of his shoulders, both of his hips, both of
his knees and both of his feet, while shifting his weight from first his
left foot to his right foot and then back to his left foot at the same time,
hold his head motionless. Is muscle coordination needed? Should any one
of these movements get out of line, should some part of his body depart
from the necessary groove, the shot is likely to go astray. It is because of
this that, more so in golf than in the other sports, there is so much
variation in the play of the participants from day to day and even from
shot to shot.
Unlike most of the other forms of athletic competition, the entire action
in golf is individualistic. Only one of the competitors is in action at a particu-
lar moment and then all the attention and the resultant pressure falls on
that person. This increased pressure as well as the necessity for concentra-
tion is recognized by all, in that absolute quiet is granted when a golfer to
shooting. Similar pressure is evident in basketball when a player shoots a
foul, but the cager may average two or three fouls a game while the golfer
mkes upwards of 70 shots a round. The baseball pitcher can throw a bad ball
but the batter may swing and pop to the infield, the tennis player can hit
a mediocre shot and win the point by his opponent's hitting out of bounds,
but when the competitive golfer misses a shot, he is immediately penalized
because old man par, his opponent, never varies and never offsets the player's
This brings us to the final point. In all athletics, except golf, the
competitors meet strong as well as weak opponents. If the football, tennis
or baseball teams have several hard games in a row, a comparative
breather usually precedes, or follows, the tough opponents.' Perhaps, one
of the strong teams has an off day, then opposition may be easy. But the
golfer is always playing against par, even in match play when the golfers
medal score is poor, his reputation will suffer even if he does beat his
opponent. The best match players unanimously advocate playing against
par, not your opponent when in a match. Par is an opponent that is
made to be difficult, which never has an off day and never gets easier.
Yes, without mentioning the five or ten miles walked, golf is the tough-
est competitive major sport.
