Sevten Net men
To Start South
On Spring Trip
Ineligibilities Force Weir
To Change Personnel
Of Tennis Squad
Lafst minuteeineligibilities have
forced Coach Leroy Weir to shift
the personnel of his tennis squad
Which is preparing to leave on its
annual spring jaunt to the South
Friday.
Jim Porter, one of last year's let-
termen, and Lawton Hammett, soph-
omore star, were declared ineligible
for competition last week, causing
a scramble for positions on the seven-
man southern bound team.
Injuries Weaken Squad
In addition, injuries have plagued
the net squad. Jim Tobin, number
one player on last year's team, has
been bothered with a knee injury.
and until last week was an uncer-
tain starter. As a result he is not
in top condition yet and will likely
be forced to take things easy until'
his knee no longer bothers him.-
In spite of these mishaps, how-
ever, Coach Weir has hopes that his
team, though inexperienced, will be
able to come through with a win-
ning season.
One source of satisfaction to Weir
in the last week of practice has been
the improved play of Harry Kohl.
With only one week of practice, Kohl
has earned himself a starting berth
on the varsity, replacing Bob Brewer
on the traveling squad.
Durst Shows Improvement
Another bright spot is the steady
performance of Captain Sam Durst.
The veteran southpaw has been play-
ing the best tennis of his career and
can be depended upon to more than
hold up his end.
The rest of the playing squad is
made up of Wayne Stille, Tom Ga-
mon, Bud Dober and Bob Jeffers,
none of whom have had previous
collegiate experience. However, Coach
Weir feels confident these men are
capable of good tennis. If they live
up to their early season promise, the
spring trip will be a successful one.

IN THIS
CORNER
By Mel Fineberg
Pleasing, If True ..
THE report that Joe Batiste, out-
door A.A.U. hurdie champion, and
record holder, is coming to Michigan
next year may be true as far as the
Arizonian is concerned but Univer-
sity officials here have heard nothing
about it. That is, they've heard
enough nothing about it to discover
that he has no entrance application
in.
Incidentally, this Corner print-
ed last spring that Batiste plan-
ned to come here but that his
grades were such that it was
doubtful that he could get in.
The same condition still holds.
His intention to come to Ann
Arbor Was strengthened during
the summer when he travelled
to Europe with Bill Watson and
Ralph Schwarzkopf on the A.A.-
U. tour. He and Watson became
fast friends and the husky Wol-
verine influenced him in his
choice.
Watson saw him in New York last
February and the 18-year old cham-
pion was all for Michigan. But
scholastic requirements are probably
still holding him up.
WE had forgotten all about this
until Walter Winchell paused a
moment to gloat over it and in case
it either slipped your mind too or
you didn't read Winchell, we'll pass
it on to you.
A few months ago, the Mirror
scoop hound said that Bill De-
Correvont had laid down the ul-
timatum that either Northwest-
ern hire a new backfield coach
or he'd quit school. Both North-
western and the former Austin
High School flash vigourously
denied it and things gradually
died down.
Two weeks ago, Wes Fry was hired
as backfield coach. The question is
-is there any connection?
THE Chicago Daily News, always a
paper which stresses originality
and condemns sham, hangs one on
wrestling every time it runs a grap-
pling story. In six-point type, above
every wrestling story, is the warn-
ing "The drama page being crowded
today this item is generously given
space on the sport pages, but it's still
drama news, not sport."

In Eight Game Schedule
A squad of 16 Wolverine baseball
players will leave Ann Arbor at 3
p.m. today to embark on their an-

son, Lyle Bond, Mickey Stoddard
and Les Veigel.
Catchers: Forest Evashevski and,
George Harms.
infielders: George Ruehle, Bill

lain and Howard Greenberg.
Outfielders: Captain Charlie Pink,
Fred Trosko, Don Holman and Davie
Nelson.
Open Against Tar Heels
The Wolverines, who have had but
three days of outdoor practice, will
stop over at Columbus, Ohio to-
night and expect to arrive in Chapel
Hill, N. C., late tomorrow for thefir
game with the University of North
Carolina Friday.
Following the game with the Tar
Heels, Michigan will face Duke,
Washington and Lee, Virginia Mili-
tary Institute, Navy, Virginia. Mary-
land and will finish up with George-
town University at Washington, D.C.
Ray Fisher's charges wound up
their pre-season drills on a wet Ferry
Field diamond yesterday afternoon.
Captain Pink's Regulars defeated a
Yannigan nine, 4-1, in a brisk seven-
inning game.
Dobson and Stoddard were the op-I
posing starting pitchers and each
turned in a hitless and scoreless
three-inning stretch.
Westfall, Stars For Losers
Southpaws Neil Muir and Bruce
Randall, who relieved the two aces,
were touched for all the runs.
Trosko and Ruehle provided the
hits that drove in all the Regulars'
runs, while Catcher Bob Westfall

Linksmen To M
In First Enga
Golf Coach Ray Courtright and
five veteran members of Michigan's
links squad will join the southward
trek of Wolverine athletes early
Thursday morning when they head
for the other side of the Mason-
Dixon line on their. annual spring
trip.
The squad which will be led by
Captain Bob Palmer also includes
on its roster Jack Emery, Lynn Reiss,
Tom Tussing and Bill Black. When
they set up camp at Athens, Georgia,
for the Southern Intercollegiate meet
they will be joined by sophomores
John Leidy, Dave Osler and Goodwin
Clark, in addition to Ken Johnson,
a senior.
The Wolverines will open their
season Saturday at Knoxville against
the Volunteers of Tennessee. The
squad will then penetrate deeper
south for a match the following
Monday with Georgia Tech at At-
lanta. Coach Courtright will then
take his team over to Athens for a
meeting with Georgia University and
three days' competition in the South-
ern Intercollegiate Meet.

eet Tennessee
gement Saturday
This will be Michigan's first en-
try in this meet, and the Wolverines
will be pitted against the pick of the
South's college golfers. Courtright
does not expect his team to run off
with any honors in the meet, for
while the Wolverines will have had
only three days of outdoor practice
behind them, the Southern golfers
will be benefitted by their year-round
outdoor play.
At the conclusion of the meet
which will last from April 11 to 13,
the Wolverines will pack their bags
and head northward. Two days later
the Michigan team will open its
Big Ten season at Columbus when
it meets the Buckeyes over Ohio
State's beautiful course. Ann Arbor
will be the next stop, and the team
will open here against Michigan
State April 20.
Last year, the Wolverines com-
pleted their Southern tour with a
record of four straight wins against
no defeats. They were rained out
in two of the scheduled matches.
Georgia Tech fell before them last
season, 14-4.

Captain Charlie Pink, who bats
and throws left-handed, will hold
down the lead-off position for the
third straight year in the Wolver-
ines' batting line-up. Charlie will
patrol the center field garden;
where his speed will aid in covering
plenty of territory.
Winchell House Dominates
Dorm Honor Cage Teams
Winchell House dominated the
Residence Hall All-Star basketball
squad by having three of its men
named to the first team by the
nominating committee.
First team selections were: Bob
Christensen, Winchell, center; Taft
Toribara, Lloyd House, and Duane
Pagel, Winchell, forwards; Barton
Cook, Wenley, and Howard Rahn,
Winchell, guards.
Second team selections were: for-
wards, John Hanlon and Wilbur Sha-
piro, both of Winchell; Allie Reagan,
Lloyd House, center; Harold Wilson,
Wenley, guard; and Walter Fish,
Fletcher Hall.

Mike Sofiak will again hold down
the regular shortstop berth for the
Wolverines as they head for the
sunny South. Mike is an excellent
fielder and a timely hitter, and he
tops these assets with a fiery spirit
that makes him the sparkplug of
the Michigan nine.
led the losers with two singles and
a walk.
The Regulars lined up in the field
with Ruehle at first; Steppon, sec-
ond base; Sofiak, shortstop; and
Chamberlain at third. The outfield
had Trosko in left; Pink in center
and Holmanindright field. With
Evashevski behind the plate, it will
probably be this lineup that will
open for the Wolverines.

LAKELAND, Fla., April 2.-(P)-
The Detroit Tigers wound up their
stay in Florida today by winning a
pitchers' battle with the Washington
Senators, 4 to 2, in a Grapefruit
League game.
The Senators outhit the Tigers, but
Louis (Bo-Bo) Newsom held them
runless during the six innings he was
in the box. They got two of their
seven hits off rookietTom Seats to
score twice.
Outfielders Barney McCosky and
Bruce Campbell had a perfect day
at the'plate, accounting for five of
Detroit's six hits off Early Wynn and
Joe Haines. One of McCosky's blows,
a triple, scored the winning run in
the third.
The Tigers, who sent eight players,
including five pitchers, back to the
minors yesterday, start northward
tomorrow. Thursday they play the
Brooklyn Dodgersdat Gadsden, Ala.
Today's victory was the twelfth for
Detroit in 18 games with major'
league clubs during the stay here, a
record which gave the Bengals third
place in the Grapefruit League.

ing on, the talkative Newsom bore
down. He had only one bad inning
-the fourth-when the Senators,
with one out, filled the bass as New-
som became somewhat erratic. He
retired the side without a run, how-
ever.
Detroit scored twice in the first
when Campbell singled and came
home on a single by McCosky and an
error by Gee Walker, former Tiger
outfielder. McCosky went to third
on the same bobble and tallied
when Hank Greenberg singled.
In the third Wynn walked Camp-
bell, the latter scoring on McCosky's
triple, and McCosky followed him
across the plate on York's outfield
fly.
From then on the Tigers could get
only two hits off Haines-one each
by McCosky and Campbell-whc,
worked the last five innings.
An error by York accounted for
Washington's first run in the eighth.
Buddy Lewis walked to start the in-
ning and York then fumbled ablow
by Cecil Travis. Walker singled to
center to score Lewis but Seats, a
southpaw obtained from Sacramento,
left him and Travis stranded.
A walk, a force out, a double by
Johnny Welaj and an infield out gave
the Senators their second and final
tally in the ninth.
