Lakeland, Fla. ..."Big Hank
Greenberg, the Detroit Tigers' slug-
ging outfielder, today took up where
he left off last fall, by banging the
first pitch in his first time up in an
intra-squad game for a home run
with two men on base."
Poor Hank . . The Double indeed
feels sorry for the unfortunate big
guy '. . Imagine running around
all those bases with those awful flat
TALKING ABOUT the draft, it
seems they couldn't find any de-
fective tootsies on former Wolver-
ine star Elmer Gedeon . . . Clark
Griffith's lanky outfielder left for
training camp yesterday . . . Add
Bill Cartmill to your list of Michi-
gan athletes with low draft num-
bers . . . The new Wolverine cage
captain, who recently decided to
stay in school another year, has
been informed by his local board
that he will be called shortly after
next September . . Cartmill is
working out with the baseball team
at present . . He is quite a star,
they say . . . Coach Fisher keeps
asking him, "Are you sure you
have had high school experience?'"
TE CAN hardly wait until the
.'"Harmon of Michigan" picture
comes to town . . The Double has
already applied for his tickets to see
the Wolverine Gable and intends to
sit through at least three shows .
Wouldn't miss that epic for the
world . . It will no doubt be a
melodrama, or something . . . In-
cidentally, Harmon is still playing
basketball occasionally with the
Hammond All-Stars . . . Traveled to
Memphis, Tenn. last week to meet the
Original Celtics and will also play in
Des Moines in the very near future.
THEY ARE SAYING big things
about Ramblin' Roy Schwarzkopf
down Yale way these days . . . The
Eli frosh smashed the old Cage
record with a 4:22 mile timing last
week . . . Charley Hoyt claims
him a better freshman prospect
than brother Ralph was . . He al-
most came to Michigan, you might
remember . . . Ralph is running
against Rice, Lash and the rest
again Sunday in Cleveland.
. . . The DOUBLE lifts his hat to
sports ed JohnhDietrich from Ohio
State. . . The guy finally comes
through with a statement that carries
some sense . . . "When at the end
of the year," he says, "sports writers
start selecting their athlete-of-the-
year, comeback-of-the-year and what
have you, a strong contender for the
team-of-the-year will be the Michi-
gan swimmers.
"While there are some things in
that are not so pretty," John con-
tinues, "no one can deny that the
team as constituted is certainly
one of the greatest, probably the
greatest, of all time."
You're right, John, darn right ...
The only thing not so pretty in the
picture was Mike Peppe's face whe.
he saw the final score . . . Michigan
87, the entire rest of the Conference,
85 . . . I imagine Dietrich would be
awful sore at his track team if , he
knew they gave the Double a bed to
sleep in at Lafayette Saturday night
. . . Haw.

It's always easy to write a success
Unl~e most tales of athletes and
their activities, you don't have to
toss superlatives around building up
some obscure sports event; you don't
have to stir your imagination in an
effort to make a rehash of a past
encounter satisfy the public's critical
appetite; you don't have to alibi a
defeat, or make an easy win appear a
magnificent feat. All that's neces-
sary is to state a few simple facts,
letting them speak for themselves.
Take the case of Michigan's junior
trackman, Al Thomas. A! was quite
a star as a scholastic cinderman in
Detroit's Cooley High School. Com-
peting his senior year in the Metro-
politan Indoor championships, Thom-
as's piston-like legs churned him to
individual titles in three events and
played a large part in Cooley's cap-
turing of the team crown.
Then Thomas caine to Michigan.
As a freshman he lived up to all
advance notices. The following year
he was counted on for plenty of val-
uable points in the 60-yard dash and
the low hurdles.
But in his initial appearance as a
varsity trackman at the Illinois Re-
lays in Champaign last year, Al pulled
a leg muscle. He tried hard to work;
out' the injury, but it responded to
treatment slowly. Along came the out-
door season and it still persisted, ren-
dering him ineffective all spring.
This fall Thomas was a mighty
discouraged lad. But he kept working
and working, until finally, on the
surface at least, his leg troubles had
disappeared. Coach Ken Doherty
brought him along slowly in the cur-
rent campaign, allowing the former,
drive and power to return. At first'

and Saturday's contests. Capt.
Charley Ross, wingman Jimmy Lot-
ett, center Fred Heddle, and Bert
Stodden, star defenseman, are all
planning to take their leave of the
Michigan campus in June and there~
isn't one in the four who isn't more
than anxious for victory.
Especially to husky Bert Stodden
would a victory be sweet. The blond
back-liner had more than a little
trouble with a certain member of the
Illinois outfit when the Illini played
in Ann Arbor last week.
This was Amo Bessone who, as
far as style of play is concerned, is
an 'exact counterpart of the Michi-
gan defenseman. Both boys play de-
fense, both are rather small and both
delight in a good rough bit of bodily
In last Saturday's game here, the
two met just once too often for the
peace of mind of Stodden who came
off the boards with his fists flying.
It took 'a good dozen people to separ-

they have forgiven, it's pretty plain
l that neither has forgotten.
It is likely that both Coach Eddie
Lowrey of the Wolverines and, Vie
Heyliger, the Illinois mentor, will
start their second front lines and
hold their first combinations in re-

Natators Should Have Easy Job
With Wayne Squad Saturday-IF

Michigan will administer another
swimminglesson to Wayne University
Saturday night.
The Wolverines will meet the Tar-
tars in a return engagement at De-
troit for the third time in the his-
tory of the two schools, and if a
certain few things fail to happen a
certain few people will surely be sur-
IF: Michigan doesn't win by more
than 51-33, the score of the first
Wayne-Michigan meet this year,
Matt Mann will begin to think his
champions are slipping.
IF: Gus Sharemet doesn't whip
a guy by the name of Bill Prew in the
50 or 100 yard races-well, he'll
have a couple of more chances in
the National Collegiate and National
AAU meets.
IF: The Wolverines don't sweep the
back and breast stroke events you
and Marion Kellogg whipped Warn-
er Baird.-
Al Isreal and Seymour Mark suc-
cessfully defended their handball
doubles championship by beating Ed
Zerdon and Bert Zheutlin, 21-16,
21-14. In the feature handball ex-
hibition match, Milton Lappin and Al
Zerbo, National 'Y' champions,
gained another victory over Dixie
Davis and George Miller of the To-
ledo YMCA.
Delta Kappa Epsilon won the hock-
ey championship by defeating Phi
Kappa Psi, 4-0, at the Coliseum.

might as well tear up that old draft
questionnaire-for the world will
soon be coming to an end, anyway.
IF: The impending clash of four
of the country's finest sprinters,
Charley Barker, Gus Sharemet, Guy
Lumsden, and Bill Prew doesn't come
close to setting a record in the 50
and century races-both Matt Mann
and Leo Maas, Wayne mentor, will
publicly eat broadcloth.
IF: Jack Wolin approaches the
form he showed in the Michigan
AAU meet here when he licked Bob
Gardner, Wayne's ace is in for a re-
peat performance.
IF: Franny Heydt doesn't show up
for the meet don't be disturbed; he's
going to Cleveland to win himself
a National Junior AAU title.
IF: Wayne isn't the bravest swim-
ming team in these wide United
States for daring to meet mighty
Michigan twice in one season and
taking their beatings with a smile-
you've got another guess coming.
IF: Yale and Ohio State were only
half so brave and would just meet
Mann's squad ONCE the entire Wol-
verine team would jump for joy and
that's no kidding!

LAKELAND, Fla., March 12.-(/P)-
Big Hank Greenberg, the Detroit
Tigers' slugging outfielder, today
took up where he left off last fall
by banging the first pitch in his first
time up in an. intra-squad game for
a home run, with two men' on base.-
Batting in his usual clean-up spot,
Greenberg teed off on the first offer-
,ing of rookie Hal Manders, lifting it
over the centerfield wall 340 feet
away, but it wasn't enough to win for
the regulars, who dropped a 6 to 4
seveh-inning decision to the recruits.

Results of postal meets with the
plebe cindermen of seven other
schools seem to indicate that the 1941
edition of the freshman track ag-
gregation is the spittin' image of the
all-conquering 1940 crew:
Michigan 71 273, Ohio State 32 2/3.
Michigan 75, Iowa 29.
Michigan 821/3, Purdue 21 2/3.
Michigan 51, Wisconsin 47.
Michigan 822, Notre Dame 211/2.
Michigan,59 5/6, Michigan State
39 1/6.
Michigan 68, Missouri 37.
Concerning the boys who make up
this invincible cinder aggregation:
Crown jewel of the collection at this
writing is Ernie Leonardi, distance
runner par excellence, whose phe-
nomenal 9:41 two mile is the best
freshman time since Ralph Schwarz-
kopf set the 9:31.7 record four years
ago. In addition, Ernie has also run
the best frosh'mile to date, a spark-
ling 4:28.7.
But Ernie is only one of many stu-
dents.,Merv Pregulman's 43-foot, 7-

meets, and Chuck Pinney likewise
made a clean sweep of the 65-yard
low hurdles with his :07.6 which
