The Union made only one demand
in scheduling the battle. "Petersen

said. "That's all we need to win."
At The Daily offices, reports were
rampant that the women's staff
would be sufficient to take care of
the weak opposition. "We'll prove

HERE comes a time in every man's
life when he must seize fortune
by the forelock, give it a prodigious
twist (you can twist a forelock) and
break its back. We rather like that
sentence: it sounds original albeit a
bit reminiscent of something or other.
Our problem now is to tie it in with
the rest of this column.
Let's see. Football isn't in sea-
son (except spring football which
doesn't really count); hai lai is
out 'cause we can't pronounce
it; baseball-ah yes baseball. De-
lightful sport that. Let's see,
baseball baseball base yankees,
yanke, dimaggio, dimag sick, sick ...
dimag sick, yanke sick, boston, good
team boston, foxx, foxx and william
and doerr (how spell doerr) and
grove, old man grove buit still plenty
. . Ah yes, we've stumbled upon
it with relish aforethought. With
Dimaggio out, (not to mention Pow-
ell and Ruffing and Pearson with
perennial sore arms) now's the chance
for Boston to get on the ball 'if
they're ever to get on ball. And with
that we leave the subject of major
league baseball.

LAST Saturday afternoon, at ap-
proximately 2:27%/2, a white-
headed lad could be seen running
down State St., toward Ferry Field,
with the gretaest of speed and the
maximum of need. His name, al-
though he would never have stopped
to give it had some questioner ques-
tioned, was Don Holman, sophomore
outfielder on the baseball team.
It seems that there was a base-
ball game at 2:30 and Mr. Hol-
man, so concerned was he about
the outcome of aforementioned
conflict, had fallen asleep. Yes,
Mr. Holman, 'anxious to steal a
little cat nap, had overslept and
he had to hasten toward the ball
orchard lest he miss the game.

Captain-Elect Bill Combs
Gains 191-Pound Title
Chalking up 19 points with three
titles, one second and a third place,
the University of Michigan matmen
garnered the National A.A.U. junior
Wrestling Championship over the
weekend in Detroit. Michigan State
College took second place behind the
Wolverines with ten points, in the
tournament held at Fordson High
Bill Combs, newly elected Varsity
captain for 1941, captured the 191
pound crown. Competing in the
heavier weight bracket, although he
wrestled at 152 pounds, Combs gave
evidence that he had what it takes,
and more, to win a national title.
The other two individual titles
went to Emanuel "Knobby" Knob-
lock at 174 pounds and sophomore
Fred. Klemac at 118. Knoblock, a
senior, has been a varsity reserve to
Harland Danner, Frank Morgan and
Don Nichols for the past three years.
Klemac who made a good varsity
record before being replaced by Tom
Weidig later in the season, also came
through with a National Junior
A.A.U. crown.
Other Michigan points were tal-
lied by Tom Weidig, who placed sec-
ond at 123 pounds, and Art Paddy,
varsity reserve, who took third at
158 pounds.

For BigTen Games
Captain Charlie Pink and his Wol-
verine teammates play host to theirs
country cousins from Ypsilanti,'
Michigan Normal, at Ferry Field ata
4:00 p.m. today.
At the same time, however, Coach1
Ray Fisher's charges will be on
guard for any uprising on the part
of their somewhat ambitious guests.
For there's nothing that would give
the Ypsi boys more pleasure than1

Three Aces To Pitch
For this reason and because
Fisher wants to keep his ace pitch-
ers in trim for the impending Con-
ference battles, the wily Wolverine
tactician will employ Jack Barry,
Lyle Bond and Mickey Stoddard in
three-inning stretches in today's
game with the Hurons.
Stoddard, especially, should be
looking forward to the tilt with the
visitors. It was in the two games
with Normal last year that Mickey
established himself as a first-class
Walking into the first game with
one out and the bases loaded, the
husky righthander promptly proceed-
ed to retire the side scoreless and
continue on for five more innings
yielding one lone hit. He continued
to display the well known Indian
sign on the Ypsilanti lads in the sec-
ond game when he again let them
down with one hit over a four-inning
To Use Same Lineups
The remainder of the lineup will
be the same that split the double-
header with Wisconsin over the past
week-end, Forest Evashevski, whose
lame throwing arm is rounding into
condition, may see some action in
the outfield or possibly at first base.
Michigan Normal will bring to the
Ferry Field diamond a lineup com-
prised of six veterans who managed
to hold the Varsity to a 5-5 tie last
The Hurons displayed a wealth of
batting power in their opening
games with Alma College last week.
Normal swamped the Scots in both
ends of a two-game series, 17- and

Iudiana Seeks
Vengeance At
Drake Relays

S11 ud Weather HlAumpers Netterl's
As Conference Opener Loon

The fierce track rivalry between
Michigan and Indiana which has been
raging all this year will break out
again this weekend at the Drake Re- ,
lays. Right up through last Satur-
day when the Wolverines cap-
tured Indiana's Quadrangular Relays,
Michigan has come out on top, but
only by the closest of margins.
At Drake, revenge will be part of
the motive for some blood-and-thun-
der battles in the relays, with those
Michigan teams which were nosed out
over the weekend seeking to prove
their superiority, and Indiana trying
to upset the Wolverine quartets in
the events in which they have lost to
Michigan's Conference champions.
Close Two-Mile Relay
Probably the greatest rivalry will
be in the two-mile relay in which
Johnny Kautz, Tommy Jester, Capt.
Ralph Schwarzkopf and Dye Hogan
will continue the fight which began
when the latter three were part of
Michigan's medley relay team.
Indiana has run almost the same
four men in both the two-mile and
medley relays, so the Wolverines were
looking on familiar backs when the
Hoosier quartet nosed them out on a
brilliant 1:51.4 anchor leg by Camp-
bell Kane. Even so, this great piece
of running barely enabled Kane to
nose out Hogan, and this week, say
the Michigan boys, they will be so
far in front at the start of the last
leg that Coach Doherty himself
could finish in front.
Ostroot's Fine Showing
The results of last weekend's com-
petition were, on the whole, very
pleasing to Doherty. George Os-
troot's fine showing in his varsity ap-
pearance was probably the biggest
thing. Ostroot outflung Indiana's
Archie Harris in the discus, and fin-
ished third in the shot put. His 147
feet in the discuss was excellent un-
der the conditions.
Carl Culver's 23 feet, six and three-
fourths inches in the broad jump
was the second best jump of his life,
and coming in the first competition
of the outdoor season, bodes well for
Michigan's fortunes in the event. Cul-
ver's sprinting on the sprint relay
team was also excellent.
Canham To Be Tested
Don Canham broke Dave Albrit-
ton's Field House record at Indiana
when he leaped 6 feet, 5 1-5 inches.
This week, however, his season record,
which shows him to be unbeaten, will
face its severest test when he mat-
ches leaps with Don Boydston, Okla-
homa Aggie sophomore who has
jumped six feet, eight and one-half
inches already this season. Canham
will have to give everything he has
this time, and there's no telling how
high he will go with that sort of com-
