fast-stepping little timber-topper is holder of the National AAU indoor high

Fisher Moves
Westiall To Fill
Gap In Outfield
A surplus of good backstopping ma-
terial and a hole in the outfield have
helped Varsity Baseball Coach Ray
Fisher map his plans for the lineup
he will send onto the field against
Maryland in the season's opener
April 11.
Fisher has done a bit of shifting
about already, and any changes at
this early date are only tentative.
There is one, however, that looks
as *though it would stick. Bob West-
fall, reserve catcher last spring to the
capable George Harms, is running in
front in the race for that garden
job.
Westfall In Outfield
The reasons for the move are two-
fold. First and most important is the
fact that Westfall is a good outfield-
er. Fisher pointed out that the grid
captain is "a faster starter, and has
good hands," and the Wolverine
coach is of the opinion that flychas-
ing is the stocky Westfall's natural
talent.
The competition for the catching
job is another factor. Harms per-
formed brilliantly behind the plate
last year, and hit for a .265 average.
He has showed enough in the early
drills to indicate that he has his old
position just about sewed up. And
Fisher has more than enough catch-
ing materfal from which to produce
relief fbr Harms. Any one of three
sophomores, Warren Jessop, Bill
Burke and Dick Wakefield, could
conceivably fill the bill.
The garden situation is different.
With veterans Don Holman and Davie
Nelson back for duty, there is one
regular job open. Bill Cartmill, bas-1
ketball captain, and Max BahrychI
forward on the hockey team, are
among the candidates, along with
Wakefield,

'Killer' Kane Comes To Town...
rT HERE WAS a friendly enemy on the sidelines yesterday as Ken Doherty's
trackmen went through their daily workouts.
Draped on the wooden bench under the Field House clock, a long and
lanky, smartly dressed lad named Campbell Kane calmly watched the gal-
loping Wolverines race by. The Hoosier middle-distance sensation didn't
scorn and snort as the-Michigan runners passed.
Jistead he leaned back comfortably on the long bench and made
himself at home. He joked with Don Canham. Bob Ufer strolled up to
warn him that Schwarzkopf carries a special club along for fouling un-
der the stands. Kane laughed heartily and was quick to reply:
"Is that all I have to worry about. Why, Hell, I brought a 10-pound
crow bar here for the same purpose.
Kane's battle tonight against Schwarzkopf and Quinn comes in the midst
of probably the busiest track week in his sparkling career.
ST $TARTLD Saturday night when he raced his Hoosier head off in a
vain effort to dethrone the Wolverines at Butler. On the following
eve, he competed at Cleveland. Tonight, he runs here and finally Satur-
day he faces :Mehl, Veaike and the rest of the nation's great mile stars
in the Chicago Relays.
"Sure, it's plenty of work," Campbell admited after pausing a moment
to think. "Sure, but I run every day at home anyway, so what's the dif-
f erence."
And later he produced another valid reason for the busy program. Kane
has been drafted by the army and will report for service in July. A local
number of 127 plus a Class 1A health rating means that the Hoosier hot shot
had better get his running in while he still has a chance.
Kane's rapid rise to cinder stardom has been one of the most amazing
in the modern history of the sport. He went to a high school in Valparaiso,
Ind., that didn't even have a track squad. He never ran in an organized
race until he went to Indiana three years ago with the hopes of playing
basketball there.
Then in the fall, Kane decided to do-some cross country work to
strengthen himself for the approaching cage season. He raced along the
countryside every day behind the great Hoosier distance stars, Don Lash
and Tommy Deckard, but the elongated basketball player caught on, fast.
It wasn't long until he was smashing the records set shortly before by his
two running mates.
Today, Kane has one of the greatest racing heads and burning finishes
in the business. Take, for example, his work at Butler Saturday night. In
the four mile relay which came very close to the end of the meet, Indiana
needed to beat Michigan by at least two places to stand a chance of winning
the team title
' OING INTO THE LAST LAP, Kane was leading Wolverine Karl Wisner,
by a quarter of a lap with Oliver Hunter III of Notre Dame far behind in
third place. The clever Hoosier head went into action. Kane realized that
he would have to run his race so that Hunter could catch Wisner.
With that in mind, the Indiana anchor man cut his pace down to
almost a dog trot. It wasn't long until Wisner came within two yards of
the galloping Kane. At that point the strategy almost worked, Wisner
stuck right behind his slow-moving Indiana foe, and soon Hunter had
joined the pack as the. headed into the stretch.
Fortunately for Michigan, Wisner was able to outsprint Hunter by
four yards . . . but Kane's smart running almost cost the Wolverines their
eighth straight team crown.
He just sat and chuckled about that one at the Field House yesterday.
"If our medley relay team would have gone right, I think we could have
taken you," he pointed out. "You know, you've got a pretty nice place here."
"Not that the school's so hot . . . or the track team . . . or the town
. . . But I had a date with Tad Lynch last night . . . quite a gal."

tered St. Lawrence, since his h gh
school didn't support a puck squ d.
The handsome play-maker of the
Varsity squad has never been out for
baseball at Michigan because of arm
trouble. According to Paul, the old
wing feels better now than it has at
any time for two years, however, and
he intends to report to Baseball
Coach Ray Fisher at the Field HouseE
this afternoon.
That he has the makings of a bet-
ter than average-,pitcher is attested
to by the fact that he has had offers
from the Boston Red Sox. He pre-t
ferred to finish school, however, be-
fore taking a shot at professional
ball.
"The team showed good judgment
in choosing Goldsmith," says Coach
Lowrey. "He's given us everything he
had all season. I am very pleased
with the selection."
Retiring Captain Charley Ross al-
so approved the selection, saying,
"They couldn't haverchosen a better
man. With a few breaks, Goldy is a
good bet to be the leader of a winning
team."
Said Goldy himself, "I am very
happy at having been chosen. I hope
Charley's right about that 'winning
team and, if the freshmen come
through and the boys can all keep
eligible, he may well be."
Goldsmith has been center on the
first line all season, playing through
the first half of the season with
Johnny Gillis and Bob Kemp as his
wingmen and, after Kemp became in-
eligible and Gillis had moved back to
a defense position, being flanked by
Capt. Charley Ross and sophomore
Bob Fife.

at most of the outstanding speed skaters
in Michigan.

'WatIona ItLes
1 yard titles by virtue of record-smash-
ing performances over a long course
-Jim is gunning for national hon-
ors and a crack at the distinction of
becoming the "Swimmer of the Year."
Deprived of a chance at champion-
ship honors last year when lobar
pnuemolia nearly had him down for
the count, Welsh is shooting the
works in this, his last chance at
collegiate titles. It's now or never,
and young .Mr. Welsh has decided to
do it now.
There is only one formula for the
~rhythym, the power, the grace he
gets out of his short body, and that is
work. Welsh is virtually tenacious
in his training habits--swimming for
hours at a time without ever climbing
out of the water.
Welsh Works Hard
Religiously he'll paddle a half-mile
or so,-loaf a few laps--practice
turns and starts--sprint a few hun-
dred yards-kick 40 more laps-take
a short rest and then get timed for
a quarter-mile or maybe a 220.
His endsrance is remarkable-his
condition s6uerb, and it's no wonder.
He's a tireless workhorse always ex-
perimenting on some new wrinkle to
get the most out of his stroke--more
speed from his turns---butter times- ---
always better times.
Trher~e is only one way to reach the~
top according to the Welsh formula.
You've got to dig in and work-swim
till you're so tired it's an effort to
even breath. Then you '11 condition
yourself for the toughest of compe-
tition--the best of swimmers.
It's a sure bet that there'll be a
new distance champion for both the
National Collegiate and AAU meets
and if the Welsh formula is any good
at all you'll find Michigan'k Jim
Welsh the king of them all-the
"Swimmer of the Year."

HOW THE TELEPHONE SERVES
THE FUEL INDUSTRY
BECAUSE OF THE TELEPHONE, fuel is one of the easiest
of all commodities to purchase today. In fact, many thou-
sands of retail buyers have purchased fuel by telephone for
years without ever having seen the yards or offices of their
favorite supply companies.
RT;COGN IZING T HAT FACT, most fuel companies offer con-
tinuous service to their "telephone customers." Fuel oil
companies in cities such as Detroit have attendants on
duty week-days, nights, Sundays and holidays, to receive
telephone orders. Deliveries are made at almost any hour
to customers who find their oil supplies low.
COAL COMPANIES, too, give Similar attention to telephone
orders. A Lansing fuel dealer, for example, maintains six
telephone lines over which orders can be received. To
eliminate delays on calls, that firm uses telephone answer-
ing equipment which permits any attendant to answer
calls on any or all lines. Confusion is eliminated. No cus-
tomer is kept waiting. Calls and orders are not "lost"
because of busy lines. Service to customers is improved
100%, in the opinion of the dealer.
THUs has telephone service become of prime importance
to the nation's retail fuel industry.
