Wayne squad they were able to tally
eight runs. Their pitching staff has
been bolstered by the presence of Ray

lege competition.
Fisher heard good news yesterday
afternoon when Dr. Coxon, team phy-I
sician, announced that Capt. Bill
Steppon, the Wolverine star second
sacker, will be released from the Uni-
versity Health Service today or to-
morrow. "Happy Bill" has had a
slightly .bruised knee since the sea-
son's opener against Maryland.
Friday before the squad left for
Columbus Bill complained of a pain
in his knee. Ray took him over to the
Health Service, where Dr. Coxon hos-
pitalized the ailing second baseman
for the last four days because of
an infected knee. It is expected that
Steppon will be ready for the all im-
portant Illinois series this weekend.
Bob Christenson, who is taking the
injured Steppon's place at second
base is turning in a bang up job. Not
only has his fielding been better
than average but he has also been

Softball Games
Hold Top Place
I .A-_Sports
Fraternity softball games were the
main feature of Intramural play yes-
terday as the teams fought to remain
in the race for the softball cham-
pionship that brings with it more
points than any other spring sport.
All of the teams have evidently im-
proved greatly since the first week of
competition, for the games just com-
pleted were marked by sound pitch-
ing and fielding. Top honors among
the moundsmen went to Harold Lock-
ard of Theta Chi, who held the Sig-
ma Alpha Epsilon team to one run
and one hit as his fraternity was
scoring ten runs.
In one of the more interesting
games, Beta Theta Phi led off in their
half of the first inning with 12 -uns
but lost to Alpha Tau Omega, 20-12.
Delta Upsilon won over Phi Kappa
Psi in another slugfest by the score
of 19-8.

Big Hank Greenberg
Receives Gold Watch,
As GoingAwa y Gift
DETROIT, May 5. -(A')- Team-
mates of big Hank Greenberg, who
Wednesday will be inducted into the
army, tonight gave the Detroit Tiger
outfielder a gold watch as a "going
away" present.
Naies of each player were in-
scribed in, miniature on the watch,
which was presented to Greenberg at
a private party at the Franklin Hills
country club.
Members of the New York Yankees,
currently playing the American
League champions, also attended the
Tomorrow Greenberg, whose pow-
erful bat was a big factor in Detroit's
pennant drive last year, will step to
the plate at Briggs Stadium for the
last time this season.
No special ceremonies are planned,
but more fans than is usual for a
week-day game are expected to take
a last look at the big fellow who
twice was voted the League's most
valuable player and who reportedly
draws baseball's highest salary.
At 7 a.m. Wednesday - the day
the pennant is to be raised at the
ball park, - Greenberg will report
at the army induction station here.
That same night Greenberg will go
with other draftees to Fort Custer
where, Lieut. Col. Hammond D. Birks,
commander of the reception center,
indicated, he'll either remain or be
sent to Camp Livingston, La.

When Coach Fritz Crisler assembled
his squad on the opening day of this
year's spring training grind the
weather was cold and harsh, the
field sloppy and muddy. At that time
the consensus was that when the end
of the spring drills rolled around,
Crisler would be lacking in good ends.
Yesterday, the first day of the last
week of practice, found the tempera-
ture soaring in the 80's, the field dry
and hard, and still the absence of Big
Ten calibre flankmen.
Ed Frutig, one of the nation's top
wingmen last year, is lost to the team1
by graduation, while the status of
Joe Rogers, the other starting end,
is still in doubt. Rogers, however,
reported for practice for the first
time yesterday.
Ends Weakest Department
The upshot of the whole thing ,is
that Michigan will probably have to
depend on last year's reserves and
the freshmen who are coming up
to handle the end posts. What they
will be able to do under fire is ques-
tionable. Crisler admits that it is
the weakest department on the team,,
as evinced by the spring drills.
But, Crisler has seen some ends
who show promise of developing in-
to satisfactory Wolverine wingmen.
None of them can be called good,
but they may develop. On this list
of men who may ring the bell for

Michigan are Don Long, Jack Petos-
key, Walt Freihofer, and Phil Sharpe.
Long, a freshman from Grand
Rapids who did not play on the
frosh outfit, has shown a great deal
of pass-catching ability. Petoskey,
brother of the former Wolverine All
American, plays a hard, fast brand
of ball-but needs more weight. Frei-
hofer, an Indianapolis lad who looked
good on last year's yearling team,
lacks experience; while Sharpe, a
sophomore, has shown considerable
Karwales, Flynn Candidates
Then again, the Michigan mentor
does see some hope if John Karwales
and Terry Flynn' return to school
next fall. Both are big, fast, rugged
sophomores and will aid considerably
in strengthening the Maize and Blue
Crisler remarked on the spirit
shown by the team as a whole. He
said that in spite of the fact that it
is hard for the gridders to stay keyed
up during the grueling spring drills,
this' gang has shown good enthusiasm
and cooperation.
Pads were doffed yesterday as the
boys went through their paces. There
was no scrimmage, but the weather
wgs so hot that many of them lost
as much as four pounds as the coaches
sent them through a snappy signal

about it.",... Bob TJfer showed that
he is in top form as he ran the fast-
cst. quarter of the mile relay in 48.8
seconds. -
Yesterday the Wolverines were get-
ting set to meet the Buckeyes here
Saturday in a dual meet which, from
all appearances, ,will be the best meet
of the season . . . Ohio State took
a surprising victory from the Indiana,
Hoosiers, the team that has been
burning up the conference, in a tri-
angular meet between the two schools'
and Purdue last Saturday . . . Bob
Wright, the Buckeye's sensational
sophomore hurdler, et al, will show
the fans power galore at Ferry Field
this weekend.
Coach Doherty had his 220 yard
sprinters and low hurdlers practic-
irg starts en the curve of the track
today ... both teams will start that
way Saturday in preparation for
the conference meet because there
is no 220 yard straightaway at
Minneapolis. ,. The most encourag-
ing note of yesterday's practice
session was sounded by Neil Me-
Intyre . . . Neil, who has been both-
ered by a bad leg, ran his high
hurdles in 14.9 seconds at practice,
which was the winning time turned
in by Frank McCarthy in the Notre
Dame mct.

(Continued from Page 1)
sets Hammett was behind love-two
before he got going. After that, he
was never in hot water and went on
to score many, points at the net.
The third singles match between
Porter and Anderson proved to be
the most hotly contested of the day.
Anderson took a commanding 5-3
lead and really had Porter on the
run before the cool, steady Porter
brcke through his opponent's serv-
ice and brought the score to 5-4.
Porter took his own serve and then
continued on to a 7-5 victory.
Porter Comes From Behind
The second set was just as close
as the first with Porter again com-
ing from behind to gain the victory.
Anderson put on a sudden burst of
shots at the beginning of this set
to take a 2-0 lead before Porter
could get started. When he did,
however, there' was no holding him,
for he built up a 4-2 lead before eas-
ing up.' The match ended 7-5 with
Porter on top.
Wayne Stille, number four man,
continued his excellent play as he
whipped Ray Lucht, 6-2, 6-2. Lucht
was leading 2-1 in the second set but
this was the closest he got to victory.
Stille looked good, rushing through
the match to score numerous points.
In the final singles battle, Tom
Gamon walked all over his opponent,
Fred Richards, taking the first set
6-0 and the second 6-1. Gamon wont
nine straight games before Richards
finally broke through to win a game.
Tobin, Hammett Win Easily
The Wolverines' oustanding doubles
team of Tobin and Hammett found
very little competition .from Stett-
ner and Armstrong, as they took an
easy 6-1, 6-2 victory. They were
leading 5-0 in the first set before
the two Purdue sophomores won a
game. Hammett as well as Tobin
both played well at the net.
In the last match of the afternoon,
Porter arid Stille bested Anderson
and Lucht, 6-4, 6-2. After the Michi-
gan duo jumped off to a 2-0 lead, the
battle see-kawed back and forth till
Porter and Stille emerged victorious.
The second set was hardly a match
and the Wolverines won handily.
The Summaries
Tobin (M) defeated Stettner (P),
6-2, 6-4; Hammett (M) defeated
Armstrong (P), 6-3, 6-3; Porter (M)
