Coach Fisher
Needs A Few
Good Pitchers
With the zero hour opening Michi-
gan's annual southern siege less than
ten days away, Coach Ray Fisher iis
figuring on contacting the draft
board for the famous fish bowl in
order to pick the pitchers for hisj
baseball wars.
Fisher has been working with ten
pitchers for a month now and stillR
can'thseem to decide which would
have the best chance to silence the
enemy guns. Veteran Maynard Stod-
dard, Cliff Wise and Paul Goldsmith
have shown themselves to be some-
what more capable than the rest.
Goldsmith is hampered at present by
a shoulder injury sustained in prac-
tice several weeks ago.'
So, if the enemy were to send spies
over to the Field House to find out
our starting pitcher against the Uni-
versity of Maryland, April 11, they
would be on a difficult mission. In
fact, if they did find out, Fisher
would reward them if they told him
their information.
Bad weather continues to hamper
baseball practices and to prevent the
squad from going outside. Last year
the team was allowed only two days
of outdoor practice before the south-
ern jaunt, and Ray is determined not
to let this happen again. So Ray says,
"rain or shine we're going outside to
practice tomorrow."
In commenting on their jaunt
southward, Fisher pointed out that
the competition they meet is in many
respects better than most Big Ten
teams at present and the Wolverines
see much of the year's best baseball
Swhile on the trip.

A steady drizzle failed to dampen
the ardor of the University of Mich-
igan's football squad as it began its
second week of outdoor spring drills
The rain and mud combined to
make conditions none too pleasant
as the gridders went through their
paces under the direction of coach
Fritz Crisler. In the words of assis-
tant coach Wally Weber, "It was a
swell day for ducks."
Blocking practice drills, and a large
dose of scrimmage was the program
of the day for the a.ssernbled cand-
idates, among whom was Norm Call,
veteran halfback, who came out for
his first practice session this spring.
Call was the starting right halfback
at the beginning of last season, but

was plagued by injuries throughout
the campaign.
In spite of the inclement weather
the gridmen acquitted themselves inf
acceptable fashion. Line coach Clar-
ence Munn said that the squad has
made considerable progress, chiefly
because of their willingness to work.
One casualty turned up during yes-
terday's practice, when stocky An-
gie Trogan, plucky guard from De-
troit, emerged from a collision with a
severe gash over his left eye. Tro-
gan expects to be bak in service
today, however.
