IN THIS
CORNER
By Mel Fineberg
Three Marches On ...
Coach Ray Fisher was catching for
the Old Timers in their game with
the Varsity yesterday and, if our
opinion may be expressed, Mr. Fisher,
albeit quite active, is not as spry as
he once was. But this is not a story
of Mr. Fisher but of one Clyde
"Bucky" Crouse. Clyde "Bucky"
Crouse may not have been a first off-
spring of Adam and Eve but he is
often pointed out by veteran anthro-
pologists as one of the prize rem-
nants of the Neanderthal Man.
Well, this Bucky Crouse has
knocked around some in his base-
ball days. He played with the
Chicago Sox after the War,
caught for the Buffalo Bisons
for so long that the umpires
dusted him off with the plate,
managed the Baltimore Orioles
and wound up playing for the
Chattanooga Lookouts this year.
One day, early in the year, Crouse
was cavorting around in his usual
backstop position, looking out for the
Lookout, In the press box was a
cub reporter, substituting for the
regular scribe who was probably
someplace attending his grandmoth-
er's funeral. After watching Old
Methusela Crouse perform that day,'
the embryionic Damon Runyan wrote
in his cover "This newcomer Crouse
looked very promising behind the
plate but he should be farmed out for
more experience."

Fisher

to catch the eye of Coax;
and won himself the regular

Varsity left field berth in his sopho-
more year, winding up the season with
a batting average of .319.
Pink's baseball skill has not been
limited to his batting, however. Char-
ley is an excellent fielder and pos-
sesses an accurate throwing arm. In
two full years of Varsty competition
Pink has made only two errors. His
speed on the base paths netted him
15 stolen bases, one short of the
number made by Mike Sofiak, who
led the team in that department.
"I'm very pleased with the team's
choice," commented Coach Fisher
following the announcement. "Char-
ley's a good ball player and should
make an inspiring leader."
In addition to his diamond activity,
Pink has also been a first string for-
ward on Coach Bennie Oosterbaan's
basketball team for two years.
Otto R. Becker, '40, of La Salle, Ill.,
was appointed Varsity manager of
the -1940 baseball team and John W.
Rane, Jr., '40, of Ann Arbor was
named alternate.

Eight Michigan
Runners Enter
State A.A.U.'s
By HERM EPSTEIN
Michiganders will get another peek
at four of the Michigan members of
the Big Ten track team, when they,
and four other Wolverine runners, go
to Ypsilanti for the State AAU's which1
will be held Saturday, June 10. j
For outsiders, the entrance of War-
ren Breidenbach and Phil Balyeat in
the 440 will provide the big news.i
Both of the sophomore stars have
indicated that they will run, and if
they do, the present state mark should
take a (beating. The two have run+
47.2 and 47.7 respectively, and any-'
thing approaching those times will
create a new record.
Ackerman, Dobson Enter
Fromca Michigan standpoint, how-
ever, the most important entries are
those of two freshman runners, Bill
Ackerman and Bill Dobson. Though
their points will not be counted with
the Wolverines' since they are not
Varsity men, what they do will give a
good line on what to expect from
them next year.
Ackerman has been running almost
by himself this year, with none of
the other freshmen being able to
push him in the mile and two-mile.
He will enter the longer distance, and
his performance will tell much about
how much company Ralph Schwartz-
kopf will have next year.
Dobson, the young brother of Russ
and Jack, will run in the 440 at Ypsi,
but his forte is the low hurdles, at
which distance he was one of the
best in the state while in high school.
Watson To Perform
Capt. Bill Watson is going over "to.
get a workout" before leaving for the
West. Watson will enter his three
favorite events, the broad jump, dis-
cus, and shot put, and intends to
take in the 100-yard dash. Last year
Bill set new AAU records in the shot
put and broad jump.
Al Smith will enter the 100 and
220-yard dashes, Stan Kelley will
compete in the high and low hurdles,
and Bob Hockberger will throw the
javelin.

Seven Varsity
Netmen Given
Major Awards
Four Reserves Receive
Numerals; Tobin Wins
In Number Two Singles
Coach Leroy Weir announced yes-
terday that Varsity letters were
awarded to seven members of the
tennis squad, and reserve awards to
four. The team returned early yester-
day morning after taking third place
in the Conference meet at Chicago,
and will not convene to choose next
year's captain until" next week.
Four seniors, who wound up their
collegiate net career last weekend
were among the letter winners. They
are: Capt. Don Percival, Saginaw;
Ed Morris, Youngstown, Ohio; Steve
Woolsey, Evanston, Ill.; and John
Kidwell,,Wayne. Of the four, Perci-
val and Kidwell were the onik ones
to survive the first rounds at Chica-
go. However, each was eliminated
in the semi-final round.
The other three to receive Varsity
awards were all first year men: Jim
Tobin, Highland Park; Jim Porter,
Salt Lake City, Utah; and Sam Durst,
New York. Tobin was the only Michi-
gan man to reach the finals at Chica-
go and went on to win the number
two crown. Durst reached the finals,
but was eliminated by Jim Atkins of
Chicago, while Porter did not com-
pete.
Reserve numerals were given to
Bernard Dober, Bridgeport, Conn.;
Chet Phillipson, Flint; and Bob Jef-
fers and Howard Bacon, Grosse
Pointe.
DODGERS DEFEAT CHICAGO
BROOKLYN, June 1.-(P)-Gene
Moore tripled and subsequently stole
home in the 14th inning tonight to
give the Brooklyn Dodgers a 3 to 2
victory over the Chicago Cubs with
whom they had played a 19-inning
9-9 tie ended by darkness at Chi-
cago May 17.

Baer Stopped
In 11th Round
Referee Fullam Halts Bout
After Max Is Cut
YANKEE STADIUM, New York,
June 1.-(P)-Lou Nova, blonde Ala-
meda, Calif., youngster, punched Max
Baer's face into a bloody mess to-.
night and stopped the ex-heavy-
weight champion via the technical
knockout route in 11 rounds. Baer
weighed 2101/2; Nova 202.
Referee Frankie Fullam halted the
bout at 1:21 of the 11th after Nova,
recovering from several right hand
shots that shook him in the earlier
rounds, cut Max's face with short
right chops and stabbing left hands.
The referee said he halted the con-
test because of a bad cut inside Baer's
mouth, the blood from which seemed
to be choking the ex-titleholder.
Nova held a slight margin on points
through the ten full rounds of the
scheduled 15 round fight, despite the
fact he lost two heats, the fourth
and fifth, for low punching. The sev-
enth was taken away from Baer for
hitting after the bell.
Lou was the stronger in the first
few rounds, but Max's right hand
shots in the fifth and sixth weakened
him considerably. However, he re-
covered with the start of the seventh
and was hitting Baer almost at will
from midway of the seventh through
to the end.

Varsity Nine ]Beats
Old Timers 10-6
The Old Timers of the M Club
basked in the spotlight for five in-
nings but latent Varsity batting
power came to life in the last four
innings to give Coach Ray Fisher's
nine a 10 to 6 victory at Ferry Field.
It took a mighty home run drive
into thektennis courts in right field
by Forest Evashevski in the seventh
and last inning to put the game on
ice. Evashevski's blow came with the
score tied at 6 all and the bases
jammed at the expense of Harley
McNeal, a member of the 1932 Michi-
gan team which went to Japan.
The score by innings:

Jack Droste, '40, of Grand Rapids,
and Robert Luery, '39E, of Escanaba,
have been awarded the senior Intra-
mural managerial positions for next
year.
Both have been active as junior
managers with the I-M departments,
Droste having charge of the All-
Campus activities and Luery the fac-
ulty participation. They succeed
Herb Lev and George Petersen.

Henry McLemore, ace UP
sports writer, predicted of the
Baer-Nova fight that "the end
will come in the 10th round or
thereabouts, with the referee
mercifully stepping in to keep
Baer from taking punishment
while helpless." The fight ended
by a technical kayo in 1:21 of the
11th round.
But before McLemore exercises his
well-earned perogative to gloat, let
him remember that the day after
Johnstown won the Kentucky Derby
he called the Woodward bay, "a bet-
ter horse than Man O' War." And
the very next week, Challedon punc-
tured the Johnstown bubble in the
Preakness.
Pathos and dramatic irony
can be found in a full page ad in
a recent weekly magazine. The
ad was about tires and one of the
plugs ran "champion race drivers,
whose very lives and chances of
victory depend on tire safety,
know tire construction and that
is why they select and buy
Tires for their racing cars." And
the famous race driver in the ad,
who depended on good tires, was
the 1938 winner of the 500-mile
Indianapolis Speedway Race,
Floyd Roberts.
Roberts was killed in the Classic
last Tuesday.
