Michigan Nine Meets Purdue; Golf eam

Tied BySpartans

Netmen Washed Out
Meet Wayne Today
Rain or shine the Michigan tennis
team will meet Wayne University
this afternoon in a match which
was washed out by the Weather Man
If weather conditions are favor-
able, the match will be held on the
Palmer Field courts at :3 p.m. Other-
wise it will be played on the four
indoor courts of the Sports Building,
in which case the starting time will
be advanced to 2 p.m.
Yesterday's fdrced postponement
was more or less welcomed by Coach
LeRoy Weir since it afforded his
overworked netmen a much-needed
day of rest, which should benefit
them immeasurably this afternoon.

The W'iuds Came ...
We felt mighty fine the other day
when we noticed in the paper that
Ray Fisher planned on starting a
half-pint hurler named Mase Gould
in the Ypsilanti ball game.
There was the little fellow's
chance, we thought ... a chance
he's earned and deserved for a
long time now. But Mase has
had to battle against the breaks
all the way, and they've fallen
against him every time so far.
It wasn't a very impressive sight
when Gould reported for training as
a sophomore last year.kFisher and
many other coaches like big men,
and Mase's hair, even after it's
washed, was never more than five
feet five inches from the pitching
mound. Hurlers need rather large
fingers to grip and curve the ball
with, and Mase had troubles getting
his digits around the resin bag.
Pitchers need confidence and Mase
lacked that too.
He went into the fight with noth-
ing on his side, it seemed, but after
Fisher watched him work awhile, he
decided that maybe the nothing-ball,
kid might develop after all. His
form was like a major league veter-
an, but his curve and control resem-
bled that of a street corner relief
"My fingers are too small. The

curve I throw goes straighter
than the dean's own son," Mase
kept telling the coach. But Fish-
er just patted the kid on the
back and said, "Keep working,
Mase. Your time will come."
One of the first ball players out
for practice this year was a fellow
named Harold Mason Gould. He and
his nothing-ball were back for more.
Things were different this year, how-
ever. Mase's fast ball had zip and
steam. His curves were snapping.
He had developed a good change of
pace. Fisher watched him awhile
and called him the "most improved"
player on the team. Gould was on
his way up.
But he lacked just two things,
steady control and the breaks. Mase
had trouble finding the plate and
when it came time for the spring
trip Fisher had room for five pitch-
ers on the roster, and in the coach's
opinion, Gould was still only the
sixth best.
He kept at it though. The kid
had guts and didn't give up the
first time. When the team came
back, it was little Mase who used
to take care of the chucking du-
ties during batting practice. At
times, the Wolverines were com-
pletely at his mercy. He had
class and looked ready for ac-
tion. But then again, there were
times when the Gould pitches-
dropped. over everything except
the plate.
And a batting practice hurler Mase
remained until two weeks ago when
Fisher took him aside and told him
the time had come. The breaks fi-
nally fell his way. Mase was to start
the Ypsi game. The kid was all ex-
cited. He was ready. He worked
Then Wednesday came. It was
Mase's day. He made the trip with
the team. His heart was beating
faster than ever. He warmed up,
and the curve was there. His arm
never felt better.
But Fisher took a look at the
wind. It wasn't blowing Mase's
way. The wind, just like the
breaks, would have completely
nullified the left-hander's curve
if Ray had attempted to use him.
And so a disappointed Mase
Gould sat in the dugout Wednes-
day while Fisher's right-handers
tried their luck in a wind that
was blowing their way.
Michigan still has six ball games
to play. Win or lose, wild or steady,
the little fighter deserves some sort
of a chance.
Two Homers Give
Phi Delts 9-8 Win
A home runbarrage in the last
two innings gave Pni Delta Phi a
close 9-8 victory over Alpha Omega
yesterday, breaking what had been
a three-way tie for the leadin their
division and sending the Phi Delts
into the Professional Fraternity
first-place playoffs.
Trailing 8-1, going into the last
half of the fifth, the winners cut
down Alpha Omega's lead to four
runs when Jim Brammer hit for the
circuit with two men on. The Phi
Delts held their opponents scoreless
in the first half of the sixth, tied
the game on John Mechem's four-
bagger with the bases loaded, and
took the decision when Bob Smith

go. Baily who dropped a tough 3-2
decision to Jack Barry and the Wol-
verines last year, will start today's
game. The big righthander had the
lowest earned-run average in the Con-
ference in 1939.
Rightfielder Bud Stamm, the
team's leading hitter with an average
of .324, and co-captain Felix Mackie-
wicz, who batted .368 in the Big Ten
race last year, are the Riveters' big
guns at the plate.
Coach Ray Fisher will string along
with Jack Barry and Lyle Bond to
take care of the pitching assign-
ments for Michigan. Barry, who has
a whole week's rest, will be renewing
his rivalry with Baily, when the two
aces meet this afternoon. Bond will
be opposed by Gerald Higgins in to-
