Against Troublesome Broncos

winners. Besides Overmire, the
Broncos lost Al Karchunas, short-
stop, one of the most capable in-
fielders in the state last year.
Jerome "Curley" Anderson will
probably start on the mound for the
Broncos. Last year "Curley" won
five games and lost two, and so far
this year has turned in several ex-
cellent performances.
Western Michigan was considered
one of the best teams in the country
in 1941 and their 21 wins out of 25
games certainly substantiates that
Mickey Fishman and Bill Cain will
share the mound duties for Michigan
while George Harms will assume his
usual duties behind the plate.
.500 So Far
Besides defeating Michigan twice
last year the Broncos gained wins
over Iowa, Southern California and
Notre Dame.
So far this season Western Michi-
gan has lost two games and won two
for a .500 average.
Fisher was greatly pleased with
the heavy hitting of the Michigan
nine during their first four games
but is still very much in doubt about
his moundstaff.
Irv. "Pro" Boim, who is supposed to
be the Varsity's number one pitcher,
didn't show enough control against
Navy or Georgetown to fulfill pre-
season expectations.
Surprise hurler so far this season
is Bill Cain who limited Maryland
to five scattered hits. The promis-
ing sophomore has developed an
excellent curve ball and good control
which should enable him to chalk up
many more victories before the sea-
son is over.
Robinson All Right Now
Don Robinson, the Wolverine short-
stop, is fully recovered from a leg
injury he sustained in the Maryland
game and will be ready to carry on
his consistent hitting against West-
ern Michigan. The scrappy little
sophomore is the Varsity's leading
hitter with the astounding average
of .571.
Fence busting honors for the
southern trip were grabbed by Paul
White. The husky left fielder helped
himself to three home runs and sev-
eral other extra base hits to give
himself a percentage of .375.

ing 13 rounds on one occasion and

Weir Pleased
With Showing
Of Net Squad
Coach Leroy Weir was quite pleased
over the work his netters turned in
over the past week-end, despite the
fact that they had to be content with
an even split, winning from Michi-
gan State on Thursday and losing to
Notre Dame on Saturday.
"The boys only had a chance to
practice outside four or five times
before the opening match with
State," said the net mentor, "and
they showed up quite well. Of course,
they hadn't hit their mid-season form
yet and taking all factors into con-
sideration, I think they played good
tennis, especially against Notre
And speaking of the Irish, Weir
continued, "That Canale is one of
the smartest collegiate players I've
ever seen. Hammett (Michigan's co-
captain and top singles player) put
up a good battle, but Canale was just
too smart for him."
Weir gave the team a day of rest
yesterday, but plans to put the net-
ters through a stiff drill today in
preparation for the weekend road trip
when the Maize and Blue will face
Wisconsin, Illinois and Purdue on
successive days.
lander just can't seem to get under
way this season . . . his timing has
been slightly off and his usually
steady net play hasn't been up to
par ... however, he did show signs of
getting both back in the number one
doubles battle against the Irish which
he and co-captain Wayne Stille lost
in three well-played sets.
Dan Canale, Notre Dame cap- :
tam, showed he is just as good a
sport as he is a player ... he and
Lawt Hammett kept the spectators
on the edge of their seats during
their singles match by making
beautiful placements and drop-
shots ... and after the Wolverine
netter had neatly dropped one over
the net and caught Canale flat-
footed, the Irish leader remarked,
"A track man couldn't have even
gotten that shot. Nice going, Lawt."

Buckeyes Take Close Match;
Smith Wins Medalist Honors

Intramural Sport Shots

(Special to The Daily)
COLUMBUS, O., April 20.--Ohio
State University's golf team opened
its season today by defeating Michi-
gan for the first time in 11 years.
The Scarlet and Gray aggregation
scored 20/2 points to the Wolverines
It was back in 1931 that the Buck-
eyes won their last dual meet from
the Maize and Blue. That was the
year that Captain Bob Kepler won
from Michigan's great Johnny Fisch-
er 7 and 6 to give Ohio State victory.
Today, as coach of the Buckeye
linksmen, it was this same Bob Kep-
ler who saw his team again surge
through to victory to break the long
Smith Takes Medal Honor
Pacing the Wolverines with an
80-72-152 for 36 holes was Ben
Smith who won medal honors for the
match. Johnny Steckle, who was
elected captain a few minutes before
the match started, was low man for
the Ohioans, shooting 153.
It was in the morning's doubles
matches that the Buckeyes picked up
the tallies that proved to be the mar-
gin of victory. Scoring 101/ points
to Michigan's 1 , Ohio State liter-
ally swamped their opponents.
Playing number one in the best
ball matches, Smith and Bob Fife
were beaten by Stickle and Billy Gil-
bert, 3-0. Chan Simonds and Dave
Osler picked up point while losing
to Buckeyes Bill Lorms and Jack
Krisko. In the third position John
Kampfer and Joe Reinhart won over
Captain John Leidy and Bill Ludolph,
2-1, while Bill Stewart and Fred
Brewer lost to Ted Sulser and Pete
Nunn by a socer of 3-0.
Simonds Cards 74
In the singles matches Smith
scored the best 18 hole round by
carding a par 72 to completely over-
whelm former Conference champion
Gilbert who shot an 83. Simonds,
playing number two for the Wolver-
ines, carded an exceptionally good
74 to beat Kisko, who scored a 75,
2-1. In the third match, Fife's 81
wasn't good enough to beat Steckle's
77 and the Wolverine lost, 3-0.
Osler carded an 80 to pick up 2

A week and a half of activity has
found the spring sports program
moving but , slowly, very slowly,
thanks to weather conditions and a
subsequent disarrangement of sched-
ules which necessitates time-wasting
postponements, rematches, and so
forth. However, despite all obstacles
Earl Riskey and his capable I-M
assistants have done their best to
keep the program as much up to date.
as possible and so far at least all
first round games have been taken
care of.
Coincidentally and curiously, the
most outstanding feats of the dia-
mond division have been a flock
of airtight, two hit pitching per-
formances. Ned Atkins, chucking
for the powerful Phi Delt outfit
in the Greek league has turned in
two of these jobs, allowing Phi
Kappa Sigma -and Theta Delta Chi
only two base markers apiece. In
the Independent loop, the Rams'
Kolesar held the Wolverines to two
bare singles last Monday while
Thursday found Ralph Renwick of
Delta Sigma Delta in the profes-,
sional fraternity bracket holding
Alpha Rho Sigma to a lone pair.
The fraternity league is the only'
one so far to go well beyond their
opening rounds, and to all appear-
ances the race will be a strictly
cutthroat affair. Only five teams have

been able to come though with two
straight wins: Kappa Nu, Pi Lambda
Alpha, Theta Chi, Phi Sigma Kap-
pa and Phi Delta Theta.
Another phase of the spring
sports program was ushered in
yesterday afternoon and an in-
auspicious entrance it was. Of the
five, tennis matches originally
scheduled, only one was actually
and fully played off. One other
was won by forfeit and the. rest
were rescheduled for a later date.
In the lone opener of the day, Sig-
ma Chi turned back a strong bid
by Phi Sigma Delta to win, 3-2.
Tom Preston was outstanding net-
ter of the day, turning back his
opponent in no trouble at all style,
6-0, 6-0. Chi Psi won from Delta
Kappa Epsilon on a forfeit.
Putting an out-season note in the
proceedings comes the announce-
ment of the annual professional fra-
ternity swimming meet to be held at
8:30 tonight in the I-M pool.
Add slugfests of the current dia-
mond season - Allen-Rumsey's
27-13 thumping of Michigan House
last Saturday. The game would
ordinarily have been called at the
20 run mark but it seems there
was a dearth of officials at the
time so the boys played on and on
into the afternoon with results

Prepared to encounter some of the
finest track talent of the Middle and
Southwest, Michigan's track team
will raise the curtain on its 1942
outdoor season Friday and Saturday
in the mammoth Drake Relays, an-
nually one of the largest round-ups
of thinclad stars in the nation.
The Wolverines will throw six re-
lay teams into the maelstrom of big-
time competition at the Des Moines
festival, with entrants also listed in
most of the individual events. And
with such an array of powerful op-
ponents lined up ,against them in
every event of the two-day meet, the
Michigan thinclads are hoping to
make at least as good a showing as
they did last year.
Only One First Place
For last year, despite the fact that
they brought only one first-place
trophy back to Ann Arbor, the Wol-
verine cindermen propably made a
better all-around showing of team
balance than any of the aggregations
which placed above them as far as
total points were concerned. Besides
a surprising victory in the four-mile
relay, in which they were very de-
cided pre-meet underdog, the Wol-
verines also gained runner-up honors
in both the half-mile and two-mile
relays, in addition to which Bob Hook
took third place in the shot put and
Karl Wisner ran fourth in the open
two-mile run.
First Time Trials
With his charges already having
had several weeks of open-air train-
ing under their belts, Coach Do-
herty held his first outdoor time tri-
als of the season last Saturday in an
effort to select the men who will rep-
resent Michigan in this year's Drake
Relays. Hampered by cold weather
and a strong wind, however, the thin-
i clad aspirants turned in very un-

points when his opponent Reinhart
took one more stroke for the 18 holes.
Captain John Leidy was slightly off,
form, shooting an 83sandalost 3-0
when Buckeye Lorms shot an 80. In
the sixth position, Ohioan Kampfer
carded an 82 to better Ludolph by
one stroke which gave Ohio State an
additional two points. Stewart's 81
was good enough for 3 points as his
opponent Sulser shot an 84, while in
the final match Phil Marcellus picked
up another 3 points by shooting an
86 as Nunn scored a very high 93.
Coach, Lient.
Clifford Keen
In A.nn Arbor
Airy day this week you may happen
to see about town a very tanned, lean
jawed gent, immaculate in the dress
uniform of a lieutenant first class of
the U.S. Navy, and if you see him
say hello. Cliff Keen is back in town.
A month ago Cliff was the Michi-
gan wrestling coach but today he is
a one man propaganda unit in favor
of the new intensive physical train-
ing curriculum for Navy-trained fli-
ers. Lieutenant Keen likes his job
and makes no bones about telling
everybody so.
Having completed the four week
training program at Annapolis, Cliff
is now home on a six-day leave of
absence before reporting to the Uni-
versity of Georgia to commence his
active function as boss of the wrest-
ling department in the Navy unit
recently incorporated there. The
other sports in which a degree of
proficiency is required of all men
being trained as Navy pilots at either
Iowa, Georgia, North Carolina or St.
Mary's are boxing, swimming, gym-
nastics, track, football, basketball
and soccer.
Cliff is very glad he was coach of
such a tough racket as wrestling up
here because it kept him in shape
to be able to go through his very
stringent training course with a
smile. Out of bed at 6 a.m., breakfast,
inspection, half hour of high speed
calisthenics, an hour's worth of spe-
cialized drill in each of the eight
basic sports above named, and an
hour's lecture on what makes a navy
a navy. That's the morning menu
and the afternoon runs along similar
but ruggeder lines. The Navy reasons
very simply in this respect. If they
expect rough, tough and durable
physical specimens to come out of
this revolutionary new physical train-
ing set-up, why the guys who do the
training have got to be able to set
a good example.
Now we can't say just how good
an %xample Cliff Keen will set. But
he'll bend your ear for hours raving
about this new program he's an in-
tegral part of. Which is a very good
