IN THIS
CORNER
By Mel Fineberg
Brew Hoo .. .
Dear Corner:
Last night I invaded one of the bet-
ter beer emporiums in town and after
a couple of rounds I notice that there
is a solitary soul sitting at a nearby
table who looks awfully sad. (I mean
the soul not the table). He has been
crying and it may sound exaggerated
but he has been crying so much that
as fast as he drinks his beer the
glass is replenished by his falling
tears.,
I hae just got a pay check
and as a result am in a spiritual
and altogether generous mood.
So I walk over to offer solace to
this soul who seems to be sailing
in the sorrowful sea of sadness.
He does not see me approach but I
venture a "Gosh, old man, it isn't
quite as bad, as all that. You can
always find another girl. There are
many other fish in the sea. (At the
time I think this is quite original but
I later learn that even at the time
Adam knew Eve rather intimately
that its origin was obscure).
But without looking up, or even
retarding the awful flow of tears,
he answers "It is not a girl."
I am nonplussed but in 30 seconds
I ask "Then, old man, just what is
the trouble.'
"It is those 'Damn Yankees',"
he replies.
"Now look, old man, this Civil War
is over some 70 years ago. Let us
bury, the well known hatchet," I sug-
gest.
"It is not the nothern Yankees,"
he responds. "It isthose New York
Yankees which has definitely weak-
ened my spirit."
Well, one thing leads to anothe
and it turns out that this gentle
gent is proud to call Boston his
place of birth and for those who
have not been aware that the
baseball season is on, this same
Boston has a baseball club known
as the Boston Rced Sox. Without
any further suggestion from me,
he goes into the sad story.
"The Boston Red Sox have the best
team they have ever had," he claims.
"They are winning games with re-
markable facility and rapidity. They
are playing approximately .700 base-
ball and yet they are three and one-
half games behind those damn Yan-
kees. Can you realize what that
means to the members of the Boston
Red Sox? They play hard of an af-
ternoon and score more runs than
the opposition and go home feeling
rather satisfied with themselves.
'Now,' they say, 'we will gain one
game on the league leaders who are
the New York Yankes.'
So they look in their evening
newspaper and they see that the
damn Yankees have also applied
some ingenuousness to their base-
ball playing and have added an-
other figure to the games won
column. If people still add in the
fashion by which I was taught in
public school, the damn Yankees
have won 11 games in a row. That
is, in succession or one right after
the other without any losses in-
terpolating themselves. Ah yes,
it must be quite discouraging to.,
my Boston Red Sox."
At this point I depart because I
wish to avoid the flood which comes

from the overflowing of the amber
brew in front of him.
But Mr. Corner, do you know what
I think the other teams who desire
to break up the Yankees who are the
league leaders should do if they do not
like it? Xf they do not like it they
should go back where they came from.
Irving Milton.
Memo to An Old Timer: There is a
little matter of some beer which is
owing to This Corner as a result of a
little matter of a trackmeet predic-
tion. Of course, you may continue
to hide behind your cloak of anony-
mity but if you do we promise that
you will have trouble sleeping nights.
Not only that, but we bet that little
children run and call their mothers
when they see you coming down the
thoroughfare.

In Hoyt Finale To Close W

in

By HERM EPSTEIN
Commencement Day is over for
Charley Hoyt, and the brilliant men-
tor made his final appearance as
Michigan track coach a memorable
one as he finished his career here
summa cum laude. The Hoyt power-
house presented him with the second
highest Conference scoring total of
all time, an "M" blanket, and his
13th Big Ten Championship in 18
tries.
Surprise Performances
But, lost in the general hubbub
over Hoyt's last great track machine,
were the ever-present surprise per-
formances. Sophomore Ed Barrett,

(Continued from Page 1)
up the game in the fourth and the
Badgers went into a 3-1 lead in the
sixth when Andy Smith doubled,
Henrichs walked, and second-base-
man Stephan drove both men home
with a sharp two-bagger.
Undaunted, Coach Fisher's charges
got back a run the following inning.
Pete. Lisagor worked Saxer for a base
on balls, Beebe singled to left, and
Smick helped his own cause along
with a hit that drove in Lisagor.
Deadlock Game
With two men out in the ninth
Michigan deadlocked the game. Beebe
rapped out his third hit of the after-
noon, went to second on an error, and
romped home when Smick again came
through with a safety to right-field.
Charley Pink provided the fielding
feature of the day in the fifth when
he pulled a circus. catch on Saxer's
Texas League fly behind second-base.
Running in at full speed, Pink speared
the ball off his shoe-tops, turned two
complete summersaults, but held on
to the ball.
Sixth Victory
The victory gave the Wolverines
a Conference record of six wins
against three losses and gained them
undisputed possession of third place,
only one game behind the first-place
Purdue nine.
Jack Barry will attempt to keep
Michigan's championship hopes alive
in tomorrow's contest which will wind
up the two-game series between the
teams.
Close Shave!!

Frosh Runners Create
Half-Mile Relay Mark
A new freshman outdoor track rec-
ord for the 880-yard relay was creat-
ed yesterday when a group of yearling
track men covered the distance in
1:33.3. The team was composed of
Walt Jacobs, Bud Hamilton, Gordon
Matthews and Bud Piel, running in
that order.
Another attempt at setting a new
mark in the event will take place
Wednesday when another group com-
posed of Al Thomas, Bud Piel, Gale
Cheney and Don Jones will run.
Varsity Netters
Down Ypsilanti
Thirteenth Victory Gained
Without Loss Of Set
By ARNOLD DANA
With Saturday's loss to Illinois still
imprinted on their minds, the Wolver-
ine netmen rode roughshod over Ypsi-
lanti Normal yesterday afternoon at
Ferry Field, 7-0. The Weirmen romped
through every match in easy fashion
without dropping a set.
Jim Tobin initiated the rout by
trouncing Ed Howard 6-2, 6-2. Tobin
made his opponent do all the work
as he chased him from side to side
with accurate drives. The terrific
heat soon had Howard exhausted, and
when the match ended, he was pretty
well worn.
Sam Durst and Steve Woolsey also
had easy matches against their op-
ponents, Sam winning 6-1, 6-1 and
Steve 6-0, 6-2. Woolsey ran up nine
straight games before his foe, Charlie
Forgner was able to capture one.
With the match won after the
singles Coach Weir juggled his
doubles combinations, using Jim Por-
ter and Ed Morris in the first spot,
and Bud Dober and Chet Phillipson in
second. Phillipson, making his first
varsity start, played impressively as
he and Dober won 6-3, 6-4.
SUMMARIES
Singles: Tobin (M) defeated How-
ard (Y) 6-2, 6-2. Durst (M) defeated
Goodsman (Y) 6-1, 6-1. Woolseyj
(M) defeated Frogner (Y) 6-0, 6-2.

Doubles: Porter, Morris (M) de-
feated Howard, Frogner (Y) 6-4, 6-2.

At Lansing; Emery Is
Low Man For Michigan
EAST LANSING, May 22.-(Spe-
cial to The Daily)-Suffering their
second defeat of the season at the
hands of Michigan State, the Michi-
gan golf team today wound up its
regular dual meet schedule here on
the shortend of an 11/-61/ score.
This gives the Wolverines their
fourth loss of the season in 14 years.
Two weeks ago, it was a sub-parI
68 by Capt. Roy Nelson that gave the
Spartans a narrow margin of victory
over Michigan, at Ann Arbor, but
this time it took no low scores to
down the invaders who were unable
to get within striking distance of par.
Emery Is Medalist
Medal honors on the Wolverine
squad went to number one man Jack
Emery who put together a 37 and a
36 for a one over par 73, that only
won enough holes to net the Michi-
gan ace a half point from his op-
ponent Roy Nelson.
Nelson's win got the Spartans off
to a good start, and Stan Kowal
cleaned up for his mates in the num-
ber two slot with a par 72 that cap-
tured all three possible points from
Tom Tussing who went to pieces with
an 81. Kowal also teamed up with
Nelson in the best ball play to sweep
three points from Emery and Tuss-
ing.
Down in third place, Capt. Bob
Palmer played above his usual game
and came in with a 77 which halved
his match with Art Kerkau who like-
wise carded a 77.
Riess Halves His Match
Lynn Riess did not fare so well in
his tussle with par, and could do no
better than a 79, but this was good
enough to give him an even break
with Bud Tansey. Riess and Pal-
mer gave their mates the only win
of the day when their combined scores
won three points from Tansay and
Kerkau in the best ball competition.
Coach Courtright now plans to let
his boys off with just enough prac-
tice to keep them polished up for their
attempt to lift the Big Ten golf
crown from Northwestern at the Con-
ference golf meet to be held at Chi-
cago, May 29 and 30.

CARL CULVER

who has been coming along at a swift
pace. during the past few weeks,
turned in the best time of his short
career by running third in the mile
with a fine effort of about 4:17. Karl
Wisner picked up fifth for the Wol-
verines with another inspired mile.
* Culver Twins Typical
The Culver twins provided more
of the kind of efforts typical of Mich-
igan trackmen as Fred added a foot
and half and Carl a foot to their
former bests for fifth and fourth
places respectively in the broad jump.
Carl also took a fourth in the 220-
yard dash.
Capt. Bill Watson also caught the
spirit as he set a new Big Ten discus
record, came in four feet ahead of his
nearest competitor in the shot, and
jumped six inches further than he
had previously done in the broad
jump as he won his third event of
the day.
Capt.-elect Ralph Schwarzkopf ran
the former collegiate two-mile record
holder, Walter Mehl of Wisconsin,
into the ground as he finished 100
yards ahead of his rival who found
doubling in the mile and two-mile
too much for him.
The great trio of sophomore quarter
milers lived up to predictions as War-
ren Breidenbach came in first, and
Phil Balyeat and Jack Leutritz took
third and fourth, respectively. Then
the boys teamed up with Doug Hayes
to set a new Conference record in the
mnile relay. Hayes replaced Ross
Faulkner who hurt his leg in prac-
tice earlier in the week.
