and when Mickey in turn ran into
trouble in the last of the twelfth,
he had to be relieved by Barry.
With one out in the twelfth, Joe
Borovich clouted a triple to deep left
field. Coach Fisher intervened at
this point, ordered Stoddard to fill
the bases by intentionally passing
Siera and Todt, and called in Barry.
The master-minding worked per-
fectly as pinch-hitter Ed Gerhart
grounded to Elmer Gedeon who threw
to Evashevski for a force play at
the plate and took the return throw
from "Evvie" for a snappy double
play. By that time, it was too dark
to continue.
Earlier in the game, the Fisher-
men had rallied to take the lead after
spotting Normal two unearned runs
in the third. Evashevski opened the
fifth with a base on balls, moved up
on Bond's sacrifice, stole third and
scored when Catcher Anderson drop-
ped Dennis' throw on Pink's squeeze
In the sixth, Gedeon and Steppon
singled in succession and tallied when
Evashevski drove the ball over the
center-field wall for a three-run
homer. And when Michigan scored
once, more in the seventh on Pink's
single, a stolen base, and two sacri-
fices, the game appeared safely tucked
away for the Varsity.
But the Ypsilanti boys refused to
be counted out. They scored once in
the seventh on a walk, a single and
an infield out; and tied the score the
following inning when Mike Drus-
backy hit safely and scored ahead
of Wally Siera's four-b:se clout.
Danny Smick was momentarily
knocked out in the fifth when he
fell on his face trying to make a
shoestring-catch of Walsh's double
to right-center. Danny was so badly
shaken up that he had to retire from
the game.

Capt. Bob Diefenthaler of Illinois will be the favorite to take the Big
Ten high jump championship here this Saturday. Diefenthaler has
ali'eady captured the Conference Indoor title, and will be trying to
break Dave Albritton's record of 6 feet 7'1 inches. The Illini ace has
consistently approached this mark during the present season, his
best effort having been 6 feet 6% inches.
Track Squad Aims At Big Ten
Scoring Record For Coach Hoyt

After Saturday's slaughter of Ohio
State's track team, the call resounds
through the Big Ten hinterlands:
"The Wolves are howling!" And they
certainly are, for the boys really ex-
erted themselves, and got a line on
how close they can come to giving
Charlie Hoyt the Conference scoring
record they would like to 4present him
with as a going-away present.
As a prelude to the Big Ten Cham-
pionships here on Friday and Sat-
urday,. and for the second successive.
weekend; the Michigan team present-
ed new faces who 'it hopes will con-
tribute points to the 75 they will need
to amass to break Illinois' record. Ed
Barrett, Jack Dobson, Bob Barnard
and Tom Lawton made their first real
debuts, while August Fabyan, Jeff
Hall, Ed wing and Perry Kimerer
continr _a along the promising lines
of the week before.
Weaker In Three Events
In winning last year, the Wolver-
ines ran up 611/2 points, and seem to
be weakened only in three events: the
javelin throw, in which Fred Martin
took second; the pole vault, where
Jimmy Kingsley tied Wisconsin's Milt
Padway; and in the high jump, in
which a duo of crippled jumpers, Wes
Allen, who would have been favored
to win had he not hurt his knee, and
Don Canham, who took second in-
Netters Seek Tenth
Victory Of Season
Seeking their tenth win of the year,
and their fourth in succession, the
Wolverine netmen will turn their ef-
forts this afternoon, towards Kala-
mazoo where they will meet Kala-
mazoo College in their annual match
which the Weirmen won last year,
With the exception of the number
one singles and doubles matehes, the
Wolverines do not expect too hard a
fight in today's match. In first spot
for the Kalamazoo team is Marion'
Shane, Michigan Intercollegiate
Singles Champion.
Shane won the first place match"
last year against the Weirmen and
is out to repeat'"his victory.
In the doubles matches, Shane will'
team up with Don Worth, number
three singles player. This combina-
tion defeated the Wolverines num-
ber one team last year, as well as win-
ning the Michigan Intercollegiate
doubles championship.

doors, are unlikely to be in shape to
battle Capt. Bob Diefenthaler of Illi-
nois. Jake Townsend, who took third
and fourth in the discus and shot,
respectively, and Walt Stone, who
came in fifth in the two mile, are the
only others who have graduated.
The team has added strength in
four events, and looks to be just as
strong, if not stronger, in several
I others. The 440 yard dash, with

been aided most. In addition to these
sophomore sensations, there is Ross
Faulkner, who grabbed off second
place last year. It is conceivable that
all four might take points, and three
appear to be reasonably certain of
Smith A Sprint Threat
The return of Al Smith- to the
dashes gives Michigan a real threat,
where last year,hCarl Culver's sixth
in the 100 was the best of the Wol-
verine efforts. Smith outsped Bob
Lewis in the 100 last Saturday, and
Lewis was second in that event and
first in the 220 in last year's meet
at Columbus. Culver is back again,
and may break into the scoring.
The graduation of Chuck Fenske
leaves Purdue's Art Bodeau, who is
the indoor champ, in the favorite's
position in the 880. Bodeau finished
in front of Tommy Jester who is
rounding into shape and 'can give the
Boilermaker ace a run for his money
if he is right. Hod Davidson, sec-
ond indoors this year, and Dye Ho-
gan may also pick up points.
Improved In Mile Relay
Michigan will do a lot of improving
in the mile relay, where. a fifth was
the best they could do last year. The
crack relay team of this year, after
the great 3:13.9 against Ohio, should
take the race and a new record in
the bargain.
Ralph Schwartzkopf expects to
concentrate his efforts on the two
mile, and with last year's winner,
Wisconsin's Walter Mehl, collegiate
record holder in that event, figured
to double in the mile, the Wolverine
distance ace should carry home the
In the mile, Michigan can do no
worse than last year when none of the
Wolverines were able to place.

Ghostly Tales . ..
The General Krivitsky stories in
the SEP and the expose by several of
the liberal magazines brings to mind
some tales they tell about ghost writ-
ers in sports.
It happened in the olds days when
the late John McGraw was being
paid for the use of his name. Christy
Mathewson had died Oct. 7, 1925 at
the start of the World Series between
the Senators and the Pirates. Mc-
Graw was a pall-bearer for Matty in
a cemetery at Lewisburg, Pa., on the
afternoon of Oct. 10, many miles from
the scene he had "covered" for his
At'the close of the game Oct.
10, with McGraw at Lewisburg,
Pa., the ghost-writer for the Gi-
ants' manager sat in the press
box in Washington and typed the
"By McGraw" story. It was
flashed to dozens of the news-
papers who paid for the by-line
andon the same page was an-
other story published the same
day which told of McGraw's pres-
ence at the Mathewson funeral.
During the 1911 World Series be-
tween the Giants and the Athletics
both Christy Mathewson and Rube
Marquard, the ace Giant pitchers,
were being "ghosted." Well, Mar-
quard was pitching a fine game go-
ing into the sixth. The score was 1-1
and then Frank "Home Run" Baker
broke up the pitching duel with a
home run. The next day, the "By
Christy Mathewson" story created
dissension in the Giant camp by criti-
cizing the Rube for pitching a home
run ball to Baker.
A fist fight between the two
players was almost averted in
the club house the next day. But
that isn't the end of it.
Matty goes to the mound the next
day and he too is pitching a fine
game. The score, going into the
ninth, is 1-0 in favor of New York
when this Baker guy who is an awful
nuisance to the Giants throughout the
series, blasts one out of the park to
tie the score. The Athletics finally
win in the eleventh. And the next
day, the "By Rube Marquard" story
heaps coals on Matty's head "for
pitching a cripple to Baker."


Tiger Tirade. .
Our rabid Detroit baseball fan who
was quoted in this column as saying
the "Tigers weren't so bad. They're
just misunderstood" was encour'aged
by the Tigers' double victory Sunday
to sneak out of the hole he had dug
in his cellar. He penned us a reply
which is an example of the failure
of college to aid one without natural
ability. Note that he spells "black-,
guard" phonetically. It shows a lim-
ited mind. I

Dear Corner:
Sir, you are a blaggard. I, as a
loyal Detroit fan am hurt. I am
not a "fugitive from a box score"
as you so blithely put it in your
"column." Of course, I don't read
the sports pages any more, but
that's only because my eyes have
gone bad from the foul lighting in
the P Bell.
The Tigers, sir, are on the way
back. Witness the flashing per-
form ance of yesterday. The fact
that they beat only the lowly
Browns is of no consequence, and
I refuse to deal with trivia after
long established custom. I feel
sure that the Detroit Club will
have beaten every club in the
league before the end of the sea-
son, at least once.
Sincerely yours,
"Hurt Fan."

With Card Of 73; Loss
Marks Third Of Season
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., May 15. (Special
to The Michigan Daily) - Riding
high on the glory of their win over
Northwestern's Big Ten champions
Saturday, the Michigan golfers fell
victims of a surprise licking here
this afternoon when the University
of Illinois team trimmed them 16/2 -
In dropping their third match of
the season the Wolverine squad
steered clear of par and shot their
highest scores of the season, Lynn
Riess taking the medal honors for
the visitors with a 73, in one of the
two individual matches he played.
Jack Emery was the only other
Wolverine to stay within a few strokes
of par when he managed to put to-
gether a 38 and a 36 for a 74 that
netted him enough holes on each
nine to take two points from Patton
who carded a par 72.
After experiencing difficulty on the
first leg of his match, Tom Tussing
came in with a par 36 which gave him
a 76 for the round and enabled him
to win from Edgar Hutchinson, 2-1.
Capt. Bob Palmer dropped his second
match in twelve starts to Bill Richart,
Michigan lost both best ball
matches, Patton and Hutchinson
downing Emery and Loar, 2-1, and

Michigan Grid
Prospects Are
Still Uncertain
Plenty of possibilities along with
several question marks were all thit
any observer could ascertain as to
Michigan's chances to repeat their
1938 gridiron performance after
watching the intra-squad battle last
Saturday, which climaxed seven
weeks of intense training.
Included among the possibilities are
the following freshmen: tackle
George Ostroot, center Bob Ingalls,
end Harlin Fraumann, guard Bill
Melzow and backs Bob Westfall, Nor-
man Call, Bob Zimmerman and Dave
Nelson. Along with this group can
be added these sophomores: ends Joe
Rogers, Ed Czak, tackle Bob Flora
and backs Bill Luther and Harry Kohl.
All of these goys showed potential
Big Ten ability, but, as Coach Crisler
said after the game, they will have
to become finished players very rap-
idly next fall to give the Wolverines
that much needed extra punch to
carry on where they left off last fall.
However, at least on paper the Wol-
verines look like they will have pow-
erful starting line-up next year with
the veterans Frutig and Nicholson at
the ends, Bill Smith and Savilla at
the tackles, Captain Kodros at cen-
ter, Fritz at one guard post and the
other one a toss up, probably between
Jordon,, Sukup and Melzow, and in
the backfield the old reliables: quar-
terback Evashevski, halfbacks Kro-
mer and Harmon, and fullback Me-
All this on paper, but then the
question marks enter into the picture.
Will Meyers, Mehaffey and Savilla be
completely recovered from their leg
injuries? Will everybody be eligible?
Even if these boys are all ready
for the opening game next fall, the
Michigan eleven cannot expect to go
very far without sufficient reserve
strength. This is especially a prob-
lem on the forward wall, since the
backfield is prttty 'well fortified.

Michigan's four-man Sailing Club
team returned yesterday from the
spring intercollegiate races at Cam-
bridge, after having gained a fourth
place with a score of 107 points and
narrowly missed third place by the
margin of one point. The team beat
such perennially strong entries as
Harvard, Williams and Northeastern,
but didn't have enough to triumph
over MIT, Brown and Princeton, who
finished ahead of Michigan in that
The team was composed of three
