Take me out to the game. Buy
me some peanuts and crackerjack
and. I don't care if I never get back."

.ruck him out, fella!" "Yeh,"]
mumbles, still an inning behind
his statistics.


Get the' setting-a sunny day, a
gentle breeze,nothing to do but go
to that game. There's the stadium
now, huge and silent, just filling up
with a happy throng. Pennants
fluttering in the breeze. Half-price
lineups in soiled hands are being
peddled just outside the man en-
trance. "Hey, gotta program bud-
dy-can't enjoy da game witout
a lineup--A dime inside, a nickel
here-hey gitta lineup."
You step up to ,the window where
a stern face greets you as you say-
"Any on the first base line?" "Sold
out" is the retort. "How about at
third?" "Gotta single," he says, and
you take it. The long climb up an
inclined ramp jostled among thet
walks of life. The wealthy with
their season's box-their cool, well-'
pressed clothes; the business manE
sneaking off for the afternoon with
a well-mangled cigar in his mouth;
the average fan, shirtsleeved and
happy, betting his cronies on te out-
come. "Listen, he says, "if Boudreau
is hot today he'll make Gomez look
sick." 'Yeh," his friend snaps, "but
watch this half-pint Italian Rizzuto."
Betchabuck he gets three hits." "Yer
on," is the reply and they disappear
in the crowd.
FINALLY to your seat. The brown
of the infield against the green
of the grass blends in a beautiful
sight with the light colors of the
fans sprinkled over the wide ex-
panse. Above it all you can hear
the shouts of the concessionaires.
"Hey-gitta red-hot-Gotta hot
lunch." "Peanuts-hot roasted
peanuts, big jumbo, doble-jernted
peenut ." All this and more too to
tickle the nalate and water the
mouth. After all, what is a game
if you can't shell a bag of peanuts,
get mustard all over your chin, or
juggle a cup of orange drink?
Meanwhile, the teams have finished
warming up, Feller boyishly strides
out to the mound, the infield chat-
ter is turned on and it's "Batter Up"
by a leather-lunged ump, the butt
of a lot of abuse. First battr takes
his stance in the box, sockshis cleats
with his bat to dislodge the dirt,
spits on his hands, rubs them in the
dirt and then his pants as he quickly
glances down the third base coach-
ing box for the signal and we're off!
There's a brute in the background
with a tattoo on his arm and a
cigarette in his mouth bellowing
"Bean 'im baby doll, bean 'im!"
And the folks around you smile
with their mouths open as Feller
lashes a fast one down the alley.
"Whew, did you hear that pop?"
a youngster cries. And you turn to
your next-door neighbor who is
studiously keepingga,boxrscore and

Tennis Team
Tobin-Hammett Duo Has
Great Form In Victory
(Special to The Daily)
CHICAGO, April 26.-The Ubni-
versity of Michigan's fast-moving
tennis team stroked its way to an
8-1 victory over Chicago's netters
here today and deinitejy established
itself as one of the eams to watch1
for the Big Ten championship.
This was the seventh victory in
eight starts for the Wolverines and
the second Conference win in two
attempts. They have been beaten only
by North Carolina, rated as one of the
three best teams in the nation.
High spot of today's meet was the
great play of Michigan's number one
doubles team of Jim Tobin and Law-
ton Hammett, which easily downed
the Maroon combination of Cal Saw-

yier and Bob Lifton, 6-1, 6-1. Saw-
yier, however, beat Tobin in the first
singles tilt to give Chicago its only

Now the game is over and your
team won. It leaves you with an
awful good feeling, doesn't it, as
you plod out of the ebullient stadi-
um with the throng rehashing the
close plays, Trotsky's bullet-like
-,ock and Feller's fast one. To re-
place the scorecard.salesmen, there's
a Joe with an inflated balloon for
the kiddies; another one winding
a small dog that turns circles etc.
Then there's the long line of street
cars and taxis filling up with hun-
gry fans anxious to leave.
And the usual question as the
breadwinner returns home-"Did you
'[ave a busy day at the office, John?"]
And the usual answer of the sun-

Elmer Madar Stars
For Blue Grid Team
Score: Michigan-59, Michigan-0..
Yesterday afternoon at the Stadi-
um, a blue-jerseyed football team
hand-picked by Fritz Crisler as the
cream of his current crop shellacked
a white-shirted eleven of reserves by
the above score.
Elmer Madar, soph wing-back, was
the offensive flash of the day as he
smashed over for three touchdowns
plus several long runs. Other scor-
ing honors went to Don Robinson!
with two tallies, and Tommy Kuzma,
Norm Call, Ray Sowers and Don Boor
who each made one. Boor was the
iron man of the day as he continu-
ally hit the line for sizeable gains
throughout the game.
Standout performers for the Blues
on the forward wall was the dream
guard combination of Julie Franks
and Merv Pregulman, Phil Sharpe
at end and Charlie Gibbs at tackle.

and a fair fast one, and the Wolver-

game. But miserable work in the fitld
by his mates kept him in continual
hot water and marred his effective-
ness. Ile set down five Michigan
hitters on strikes and gave up only
two walks.
Hitting honors for the day go to
George Harms, who kept up his al-I
most sensational streak with a ring-

in on the glory in this department,
too, with a double and a single. Bud
