Nine In Initial
Practice Game1
Fisher Alternates Hurling
Duties Among Robinson,
Veigel, Muir, Netherton
Coach Ray Fisher's Wolverine
baseball squad played its first prac-
tice game of the season yesterday
afternoon. A gray sky shut off the
sunshine that brought them out for
the first time Wednesday, and the
chill winds sweeping across the dia-
mond hampered the workout.
Fisher divided the pitching duties
among four hurlers, with Les Veigel,
pitching for the second straight day,
opposing southpaw Neil Muir in the
first half of the tilt and Tommy
Netherton and Sophomore Bob Rob-
inson finishing. The cold weather
tightened up throwing arms, and
none of the moundsmen looked par-
ticularly impressive.
All of the prospective regulars ex-
cept outfielder Don Holman, who
was kept away from the session by
an examination, saw service. The
regular nine had George Ruehle on
first, Captain Bill Steppon on sec-
ond Mike Sofiak and reserve infield-
er Johnny Erpelding dividing the
shortstopping duties, and Bud Cham-
berlain on third. George Harms
worked behind the plate and Bob
Westfall, Davie Nelson and sopho-
more Dick Wakefield patrolled the
garden. The second infield had
Duane Pagel and Bob Christenson,
both sophomores on first and second,
and freshmen Dick Savage and Har-
ry Caswell at short and third. Bill
Cartmill, fifth of the varsity out-
field candidates, was in center, with
hurlers Cliff Wise, Netherton and
Bruce Hartwick working at the other
outfield spots. Warren Jessup took
care of the receiving chores for the
Sofiak led the hitters in the con-
test with a pair of triples, while
Steppon and Pagel each hit for three
bases once. The game was followed
by a short drill on the soggy infield,
with the starting combination of
Ruehle, Steppon, Sofiak and Cham-
berlain showing well in their first
workout as a unit this spring.

O UR HEAD is bowed, but our sad
heart is filled with the hope that
the Double will be as wrong as usual,
For far out on a trembling limb,
deep in a deathlike trance and high
on a windy hill, we pick the star-
packed Chicago Towers Club to de-
throne Michigan's defending cham-
pions in the National AAU meet
opening here tonight.
This is strictly scientific choosing,
and just to prove it, here is the
Double's own private dope sheet:
220-yard freestyle - won by
Jaretz, Chicago Towers Club; sec-
ond, Welsh, Mich.; third, Haynie,
DAC; fourth, Herron, unattached,
(After spending almost a year out
of swimming competition up in Flint,
Haynie should not be in condition
to successfully defend his crown.
Jaretz has the speed and experience
although only 19 years old. Eric Cut-
ler, the former Harvard star might
creep in there.)
220-yard breaststroke-won byl
Skinner, Mich.; second, Parke,
Princeton; third, Jodka, Mass, St;1
fourth, Sojka, Dallas AC.#
(Skinner will beat Parke easier
this week than he did at Lansing in
the Collegiates. He's got the speed,
the class and the strength.)
One-meter diving - won by
Clark, Ohio State; second, Cook,
Yale; third, Dempsey, Ohio State;
fourth, Lee, Occidental.
(As in the Collegiates, Clark will
win the event, but wee Sammy Lee
will win the crowd. He's the kind of
a guy you'll want to wrap up and
take home with you.)
300-yard individual medley -
won by Kiefer, Chicago Towers
Club; second, Gass, Dallas AC;
third, Parke, Princeton; fourth,
Williams, Mich.
