In Charity Tilt

WAA Girl Teams To Play
In Preliminary Contest;

to Jimmy Walsh, former St. Thom-
as High School star and Michigan
Normal captain.
The visitors are sure to put on
their usual crowd-pleasing show,
combining fast-passing, sensational
shooting, arid blazing speed with
enough of their own original touches
to make the game one of the most
colorful ever staged here. A sil-foot,
six-inch se;ian giant, "Wee Willie"
Smith, will be in at the pivot spot,
with the veteran Rens captain and
spark plug, Eyre "Bruiser" Saitch,,
and William "Pop" Gates, former
New York high school marvel, filling
the guard posts. At one forward spot
the Rens will start Wilmeth Sidat-
Singh, one-time Syracuse All-Amer-
ican, and either Clarence "Puggy"
Bell of Zack Clayton will be in at
the other front line position. Bell
is reputed to have one of the best
shots in pro, ranks, and Clayton is
admittedly the most colorful per-
former in the game.
The charity affair stands high on
the list of sports events offered 'to
local fans. In addition to bringing to
Ann Arbor a team that has long
been a favorite in every part of the
country, it will be, in all probability,
the last chance followers of Michi-
gan athletes will have to see some
of its greatestystars in action. The
Rens need no buildup-their 17
years of barnstorming about the
land offering ample proof that they
are among the best. And the squad
list of the Townsend All-Stars is a
lineup of men who played a major
part in making Wolverine athletic
fortunes during the recent seasons.'
The WAA, Daily Sports Editor Don
Wirchafter, and Sigma Delta Chi,
journalism fraternity, have combined
in promoting the charity affair, and
,promise to make it a memorable
event. Members of the two organiza-
tions will be selling tickets for the
game at campus posts today, and
tickets may also be obtained at the
Union, League, Slater's and Wahr's
book stores, The Daily, and at the
Field House before the game.

Featuring intricate pass work and sensational shots, the famed
Renaissance players move into Yost Field House tonight against the
Townsend All-Stars. Left to right, they are: Wilmeth Sidat-Singh,
"Tarzan" Cooper, Eyre Saitch, "Pop" Gates, "Puggy" Bell, Zack Clayton.

Luck 'Changes
Not that he hasn't dived well prev-
ious to this. He has. But his spring-
board antics just haven't been superb
enough to cop a major title. Last
night his luck changed, and a happy
Jack Wolin left the Sports Building
pool with a medal, a title and a new-
ly acquired confidence.
Jack has to work alrmost twice as
hard as the average man off the
board to get the same results, for he
has a rather large, muscular body-
not the best thing for divers. Matt
Mann explained it yesterday, "Jack
has to go like the devil to beat these
streamlined guys like T-Bone Martin
and Earl Clark."
Mechanics Perfect
"His mechanics are perfect," Matt
went on. "In the air and off the board
Jack can't be beat. He's even better
than T-Bone in that respect. But
when it comes to the big meets the
judges look at the appearance of the
boy entering the water, and that's
where Jack has trouble."
Wolin took a licking from Wayne's
Bob Gardner last week when the
Tartars invaded Michigan's pool, a
trimming he couldn't forget easily.
Wednesday night the two met again
with Martin also in the running.

To Start Monday
Varsity Baseball Coach Ray Fish-

only five weeks away, will call his
squad together Monday afternoon at

corps, which has been working for
the past few weeks, will serve them
up for the first time this year.
A squad of 50 or 60 men is expect-
ed to report for the first regular
practice session, of whom some 18
are pitchers. The diamond squad
will meet 20 different schools this
season, Fisher announced, with Illi-

at his best-and a Wolin at his

smiled. "If he dives that well through-

The other two Michigan victories
were gained by Tom Weidig, 128
