TWO OLD FISHING BUDDIES from the Lake Champlain region may
start working together again if everything goes all right.
They got acquainted about 10 years ago when Ray Fisher hauled his
family off to ait upper New York summer resort called Long Point for
a few months of relaxation. Not long after arriving there, Ray came -
across a scrappy, good-looking little kid, who lived two doors down the K
They became great friends, the two did. One was an old-time pitching
great, a former big league hurler, who took ua coaching at the University
of Michigan. The othei was just a wee lad, 12 years old, named Charley
Ross and his fingers were hardly big enough to wrap around the seams of a
But age didn't make much difference in that combination. They got
along great and used to spend hours together. In the morning, they fished.
In the afternoon, they played catch and at night they used to talk about
baseball and Michigan.
For four years, Ray and his little friend Charley used to spend the sum-
mers together up at Long Point, and by the end of that time Charley becamej
a pretty fair hurler himself.
The following July, Ray and Charley went up to Vermont together
and used -to take turns pitching for a small 'amateur team there on Sun-
days. They were still real buddies. They still talk about the time when ,
the usually mild Ray went storming after an umpire and almost started 3
a riot because the "blind" guy had called a wrong one on his young pro-
Charley went to high school after that and;kept on with his pitching.
He was going along pretty good with a one-hit performance to his credit
when the breaks went against him.
FIRST HE SMASHED HIS ELBOW in a ski fall and shortly after he
cracked his wrist. By that time, there was very little suitable hurling
left in his ailing arm. Crooked elbow and weak wrist, Charley went out for
other sports. He became a good hockey player and a capable gridder.
Fisher used to stop and see his old pal Ross every summer then, and
when they got together they still talked about baseball, Lake Champlain
and Michigan. There was enough of the latter so that when Charley decided
to go to college, he came up to Ann Arbor, the place where he felt most
Rosa never went out for baseball here. His arm still bothered him and
he couldn't; throw anything across except a fair half-speeder. Charley
spent most of his time around the hockey rink where he proved a great aid
to Eddie Lowirey.
Last month, howcver, Ross found his old friend Ray was having
headaches. Fisher had the nucleus of a great baseball team. He had a
powerful veteran infield and a fine-looking outfield. He had everything,
Ray did, except pitchers. When Lyle Bond dropped out of school after an
emergency operation 'in January, Fisher was faced with a definite prob-
lem as far as his mound staff was concerned.
Charley Ross heard about those troubles and decided to report for prac-
tice. He started the crooked hurling arm in action again. With two hockey
games still on the Wolverine card, Ross now doubles up on the workouts.,
pitching in the afternoon and skating at night.
And with a wide and broad smile, old Ray Fisher moves about the Field
House. "Char"y's a great kid," he says. "He's got a nice fast ball and may
be a big help if we can develoo his curve. Maybe I won't have headaches
Ross has bopes too. As he points out, "Ray has been more than a
father to me al my life. I'll work my head off if I can do him some

Dr. Grover C. Freeman, a retired
navy officer who conducted the ex-
amination, said Greenberg, reported-
ly the highest paid player in organ-
ized baseball, was afflicted with "sec-
ond degree bilateral pes planus."
Whether this will mean deferment
for Greenberg who has indicated a
desire to enter the army, if called, at
the conclusion of the forthcoming
season, will be up to the Detroit draft
board. It was pointed out a third de-
gree affliction would automatically
exempt him from service.
