Net Squad To Forego Trip South

By DICK SIMON
Coach Leroy Weir's tennis squad
is the latest victim of the Univer-
sity's speed-up academic program.
The Michigan netters, defending

,

Western Conference champions, will
forego their annualrsouthern trip
during the early part of April, ac-
cording to Coach Weir, who an-
nounced the tennis schedule for the
coming season yesterday.
Shortage Hits Team
"The shortage of rubber for tires
and the fact that the boys will haveI
a lot of studying to do made it nec-
essary for me to cancel any plans for
-

a trip South this year," said the net
mentor.
The Wolverines open the 11-game
dual meet schedule with Notre Dame
here on April 18, with a possibility
of opening a day earlier with Michi-
gan State. The following week-end,
the net squad takes tothe road for
a three game series with Wisconsin,
Illinois and Purdue, and four days
later move up to East Lansing to bat-
tle the Spartans.
Returning home, the racqueteers
clash with Chicago and Wayne and'
then go to Columbus to meet North-
western, runner-up to the Wolverines
last season, and Ohio State. After
one game at home with Western
Michigan, the Maize and Blue netters
go back to Columbus for the Big Ten
championships.

Fisher Hopes
To See Early
Spring Here
By MYRON DANN
At this time of year most profes-
sional baseball officials are having
such comparatively trivial problems
as holdouts who bother their fat
purses. But Michigan's diamond
coach, Ray Fisher, has one that only
Mother Nature can solve-the wea-
ther.
In the past Wolverine baseball
teams have been forced to make their
annual spring trips with only their
practice in the Yost Field House as
a preparation for the stiff Southern
competition.
Fisher has wanted to work his
squad outdoors for at least a week
prior to the trip, but bad weather
continually has forced him to aban-
don those plans.
"There is quite a difference be-
tween playing indoors and outside,"
Fisher pointed out.
It is practically impossible to carry
out any real fielding or batting prac-
tice in Yost Field House because of
the space limitations and poor light-
ing, the veteran Michigan coach
added.
"We get quite a bit accomplished
indoors, but the Southern teams we
meet have a decided advarntage with
more than a month's outdoor prac-
tice underneath their belts."

COACH MATT MANNI
Fahrbach are merely one-tenth of a1
second behind the Scarlet and Gray
leader, each having swum the two-
length course in 24 flat.
The only other first place which
hasn't been granted the Maize and
Blue tankers is in the fancy diving
contest. With such top-flight stars
competing as Michigan's Strother
(T-Bone) Martin, Ohio State's Frank
Dempsey and Charlie Batterman and
Northwestern's Howie Jaynes, no
man can be elevated to the favorite's
role.
Michigan's Record
Further evidence of Michigan's
pronounced superiority can be found
with a glance at its season's record.
Only the great swimming team of
Yale, victors by an overwhelming
score of 59-16, has marred the Wol-
verine campaign. In meets with Big
Ten schools this year, the Mann-
mentored mermen have left Ohio
State, Iowa, Northwestern, Purdue
and Minnesota capsized in their
wake, and by decisive margins.
And as Michigan battles the field
today and tomorrow, more than one
follower in the country's swimming
circles will be viewing the Wolverine
performances with a critical and
questioning eye. For in just two
short weeks the Michigan team will1
again face the mighty men of Yale,
this time with the National Col-
legiate title at stake, and the Big Ten
meet should provide nere than a
fair indication as to what can be
expected from the Maize and Blue
natators then.
Conference Marks In Danger
At least three Conference records
will be in jeopardy as the invaders
unite to, halt the Wolverines. Ex-
pected to fall before the festivities I
come to a close are the standards in
the 300-yard medley relay, the 220-
yard freestyle, and the 400-yard
freestyle relay. And Michigan is the
team expected to write the new times
in the official books.
Dick Riedl,. John Sharemet and
Gus Sharemet will seek to smash the.
old mark in the medley. Jack Patten
is being counted upon as almost a
certainty to establish a new 220 rec-
ord, while the freestyle quartet of
Burton, Lou Kivi, Bob West and Gus
Sharemet is favored to change the
clocking in the relay. Not only that,
but the same Gus Sharemet is being
given a 50-50 chance of bettering his
own standard of 52-1 for the 100-
yard freestyle.

of everybody's eye in the 155 pound
field. That he is a real titan on the
mats is undisputed. But " our Mary
Becker has also been more than
slightly terrific and now he's keyed
up for the biggest meet of his life.
Capt. Loy J~lius of Iowa, last year's
3 '
4 I
COACHl CLIFF KEEN '
128 pound Conference champ, would
be favored to annex the 136 pound
title tomorrow except that he is still
injured. The race is therefore wide
open and Ray Deane expects his new
found sharpness and pep to narrow it
down no little.
Bill Courtright is in for a rough
time in his 165 pound division. Wis-
consin's Capt. Johnny Roberts will
be defending the title he won a year
ago. But Corky has become so mur-
derously effective in the past two
weeks of practice that it is quite
likely that he and Roberts will hit
each other in the finals.
Cliff Keen practically concedes the
121 pound victory wreath to Purdue.
No comment there then. But Dick
Kopel has been an up-and-downer
throughout the season, and he's been
disgusted enough with himself lately
for having stayed down so long that
he's due to flare back today and to-
morrow and throw in a point or so
to the Michigan total.
And lastly, Coach Keen's regret is
that Al Wistert didn't come out for
wrestling sooner. Al has all the re-
quisite heart and strength of a
heavyweight champ. All he lacks is
the technique. But to this latter
point Coach Keen has been bending
much effort of late and it may well
be that Al can work his way far
enough up through the beefy boys to
collect a marker or so.
Now this comes to about 19 points.
And we have said it takes 22 or so
to cop the meet. So what does that
mean? It just means that some of
the guys who, mathematically figur-
ing, can't swing the deal will have to
give out with that something extra
that makes a champ a champ.
The boys are primed to do it.

By BOB STAHL
In search of its ninth conseutive
Butler Relays title, the Wolverine
thinclad aggregation will set out for
Indianapolis at 1:15 p.m. today to
pit its balance and power against
some of the best track talent in the
country tomorrow in the famous an-
nual mid-western track carnival.
But the defense of their title is
almost a secondary issue with the
Wolverine cindermen this weekend.
For the meet in Butler University's
spacious Field House will give the
Michigan team its chance to encoun-
ter Ohio State's Buckeyes again, the
same Buckeyes who out-distanced the
rest of the Western Conference at
Chicago last week to capture the first
Big Ten indoor track title in their
history.
Out After Buckeyes
It's not just that the Buckeyes won
the Big Ten meet that makes the
Wolverines so eager to get another
crack at them, because the Michigan
team was hardly in the running up at
Chicago, finishing in fourth place.
But it seems that the Buckeyes were
so elated at the finish of the meet
that, they hoisted their coach, Larry
Snyder, up on their broad shoulders
and paraded around the Field House
singing the famous Ohio State fun-
eral song "We Don't Give a Damn
for the Whole State of Michigan."
Since the Wolverines don't meet
the Ohio State team in dual meet
competition indoors, this will be the
last chance for them to avenge that
insult until the two arch-rivals en-
counter each other in their outdoor
meet down at Columbus next May.
Besides Ohio State, the Wolverines
wil face such track prowess at Indi-
anapolis as the fighting Irish of
Notre Dame, the powerful Indiana
Hoosiers, and a very strong aggre-
gation of Cornhuskers from the Uni-
versity of Nebraska. Despite the fact
that the Buckeyes are the new Big
Ten champions, Notre Dame rules as
favorites to topple the Wolverines
from the crown they have held for.
so long.
60-Yard Dash Wide Open
The most closely contested race
will probably be the 60 yard dash,
with such sprint stars as Michigan's
Capt. Al Piel and Al Thomas, Ohio
State's Ralph Hammond and Bob
Wright, and Pitt's Bill Carter leading
the pack.
Wright, present holder of almost
every hurdle record in the country,
is expected to have little trouble in
maintaining his timber-topping lau-
rels, especially with Michigan's high-
hurdling star, Frank McCarthy, def-
initely out of the running because of
his injured hip.
Indiana, with such distance stars
as Campbell Kane, Earl Mitchell, and
Paul Kendall, is expected to domi-
nate the longer runs. In the field
events, the top spots are almost toss-
ups, with Wolverine shot-putter
DiMaggio Signs Contract
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., March 12
-('P)-Joe DiMaggio came to terms
with the New York Yankees tonight
in an hour-long conference with
President Ed Barrow. Although the
salary was not announced, it was be-
lieved to be $42,000.

George Ostroot and pole-vaulter Bob
Segula looked to for plenty of points
because of their very good showings
in last week's Conference meet.
The following Michigan cindermen
will make the trip to Indianapolis:
Will Ackerman, Willis Glas, Gene
Hirsch, John Ingersoll, John Kautz,
Ernie Leonardi, Dave Matthews, Buel
Morley, Ostroot, George Pettersen,
