'Pardon Me, But' .. .
THIS apocryphal tale about one of
the members of the frosh tennis
squad has been making the rounds.
We don't vouch for its veracity but
it's worth passing along.
A few years ago, Ellsworth Vines,
the country's premier tennis player
at the time, was playing an exhibi-
tion match in our hero's home town.
After the match was over, our hero
(who undoubtedly prefers to remain
anonymous and who acted as ball
boy) went into the clubhouse with
Vines and started to talk to him.
"1 enjoyed your game very
much," complimented the youth-
ful yokel.
Vines, a very cordial chap, thanked
"Yes," the lad continued, "it was a
pleasure to work for you, Mr. Vines."
Mr. Vines thanked him again.
"But," remarked the future
Tilden, "don't you think that' if
you flattened out your forehand
you'd get more depth and accur-
So help us. We heard it from three
different sources.

DEPARTMENT of Constant Worry:
D Bob Ufer, frosh track star, who
is just about the fastest thing that's
been running around here in quite
some time, has the track coaches
worried-for fear he'll go out for foot-
ball. The 'Pittsburgh powerhouse
runs everything from the 60-yard
dash up to the two-mile and runs
them all as fast, if not faster, than
anyone on the yearling squad.
He holds or has bettered the frosh
records for the 60, 440, and 880 in-
doors and just yesterday caused act-
ing coach Chet Stackhouse, veteran
timer Phil Diamond and anyone else
who happened to be standing around,
to whistle as he ran a :09.8 hundred
and a 21.2 220 with the aid of a
brisk wind.
But the 180 pound flash makes the
gridiron coaches turn green with
envy. One of them put it this way:
"He may not know anything about
football (he made his numerals here
and has played in high school) but
with the power in those legs, he's got
an awfully big start." His father, a
star half-miler here back in 1916,
wants him to stick to track but Bob
is still wavering.
Another of the football coaches
said that if he were wavering
about his final decision he
should come out for practice and
"in two weeks they'll tell him
whether he's got anything or
Ufer's plans at present, after talk-
ing things over with his father who
was here last weekend, is to continue
with track for the rest of this year
and then decide about going out for
football in the fall.
The part that worries the track
coaches is what the pounding of
football will do to those legs.
Charley Hoyt claimed that Willis
Ward would have been his great-
est hurdler had he not played
football. And that's got the
cinder coaches plenty worried.

* * *
S PEAKING of Charley Hoyt speak-
' ing, we hear that he thinks that
next year he'll have a real track team
at Yale-two and three deep. And
then he wants to meet Michigan.

Team Blanks
Toledo Squad
Face Normal Here Today;
Tobin Probably Lost
For Rest Of Season
The University of Michigan netters
chalked up their third straight win
yesterday swamping Toledo U. 9-0,
on the wind-swept courts at Ferry
Bob Jeffers, who plays number
six, took over the first singles as-
signment and won without much
difficulty. "Jeff" merely stayed on
the baseline and outsteadied Pedro
Ramirez, Toledo's top man.
The six singles and three doubles
matches were all won handily in
straight sets: Bob Brewer, winner
of his first Big Ten match in the
Chicago encounter, raced through
Hosmar Compton, Toledo's number
four man, 6-0, 6-1.
Bud Dober, who customarily just
plays doubles, took over the fifth
position and won at 6-3, 6-0. May-
nard Cohen, playing his first match
for Michigan at number six, had
his top-spin fore-hand under excel-
lent control as he rolled over Harold
Scheers, 6-1, 6-2.
Coach Weir used this match as a
means of determining the ability of
several men who, prior to today, had
had no chance of ciacking into the
starting line-up. He also pushed up
four of his varsity men to see how
they would do against relatively
harder competition than they or-
dinarily receive.
Thorough examination of Tobin's
knee indicates that the junior ace
will not be available for some time
this season, if at all. Coach Weir
played Durst and Gamon together
in the first doubles position yester-
day, in an attempt to find a suitable
substitute combination.
The Wolverines entertain the
Michigan Normal netters here today
after which their schedule takes
them on the road to meet North-
western on Thursday, Ohio State on
Friday and Notre Dame on Saturday.

Throw Contest,
Gus Sharemet, varsity freestyler,
took advantage of a strong wind yes-
terday to get off a tremendous heave
of 345 feet 3 inches and capture
individual honors in the Intramural
Department's baseball throw for dis-
tance at Ferry Field.
The event was pointed at discov-
ering javelin prospects for Coach Ken
Doherty's varsity track squad. Far
behind the Hamtramck swimming
champion came Alvin August, with
a distance of 318 feet eight inches,
and Harry Nordstrom, in third place,
with a toss of 314 feet two inches.
The team title went to the Hillel
"A" team, with a four-man total of
1,159 feet. The Hillel squad includ-
ed August; Jerry Benavie, with 298
feet; Marvin Sedon, 284 feet; and
Maurice Reizen, 268 feet, four inches.
Club Matinee placed second in the
team competition with a 967 foot
Other individual winners were: Mil-
ton Fishman, whose 310 foot toss took
fourth; Benavie in fifth; Ralph Zim-
merman, 297 feet, four inches; Ed
Branagan, 295 feet; and Gerry
Schaflander, 291 feet eight inches.
Seven individual medals were award-

ler as "twice as serious." Crisler said
that "if Kromer were my son I
would not want him to play foot-
ball." Of the promising Kiski quar-
tet only guard Ralph Fritz still re-
mains physically able to play foot-
Although Coach Crisler said yes-
terday that he "had not been count-
ing on Kromer for the coming sea-
son," there can be little doubt but
that the disruption of the "Touch-
down Twin" combination of Tom
Harmon and Kromer, so effective
when intact, will leave a large hole
in the 1940 backfield. Kromer, a
triple threat star of the first magni-
tude in 1938 when he led the team
in scoring with 37 points, was able
to play but sparingly last year and
his loss was apparent.
The halfback's knee was injured
against Michigan State but he re-
fused to let anyone . know about it
until late in the game. He missed
the next two games and came back
for the Yale game but it appeared to
Crisler that he was not the Kromer
of 1938.
The injury, according to team phy-
sician George Hammond, is to posteri-
or cruciate ligament, a separation of
the ligament in the back of the knee.
According to Dr. Carl Badgley, Uni-
versity Hospital surgeon, it is one
of the two worst such injuries he has
ever seen.

A bad day in the field broughtWen-
Iey House its first loss of the sea-
son yesterday, as Adams House took
a 6-4 victory to slip into a tie with
the losers for the lead in one of the
Residence Hall leagues. Adams made
use of a string of Wenley errors as
Phil Read, Wenley hurler, limited
them to three hits, one a double by
Wes Peters.
Phi Gamma Delta scored twice in
the final frame on two walks and an
error to nose out Kappa Nu, 10-9, in
a fraternity tilt. Bob Smolenski and
Alfred Darling were the winning bat-
tery, while Bernard Kozel and Jack
Weiner worked for the losers. In
other games played, Williams House
took a slugfest from Allen-Rumsey,

The Story of PALM BEACH Cloth
Just before the turn of the century a young mill apprentice in Lan-
cashire, England, got himself interested in tropical fabrics. His name
was William Nutter. Convinced that his green pastures were in
America, he came to Sanford, Maine; and landed himself a job in
a mill that made "light" cloths. He experimented for ten years,
discovering and discarding, until 1909 he hit upon a cloth that
combined the best features of all tropical cloths. It was made of long
staple cotton -mixed with mohair (from the backs of Angora goats).
The weave put 1600 tiny windows in every square inch of the cloth.
And tests showed that it was extremely durable, light, and wrinkle-
resistant. Best of all, the cloth was cool to wear. Suits made of the
cloth weighed from 31 to 33 ounces (depending on the size)-half
the weight of a wool suit. To-day that cloth, (Palm Beach), world
famous is sold in 62 countries. In Melbourne, Australia, Palm Beach
suits (exactly like the ones that we sell for $16.75) cost $55.00. In
other tropical cities the price is high, because of import duties. (You're
lucky your Palm Beach suit does not have to cross borders to get
to you).
VAN BOVEN'S now present this famous cloth to you
in a variety of shades and models.
