The contest, which was the first
home game of the season for the
Wolverines, proved to be a rather
listless affair as far as the fans were
concerned because 11 out of the 12
runs were scored before the fifth

by the Tartars. Fisher used Bill
Jessop behind the plate for the last
four innings of the game and the

In First Meet
Squad Leaves Ann Arbor
Today For Drake Relay
Events At Des Moines
By ED ZALENSKI
A 21-man track squad, led by Capt.
Al Piel, will bear the Maize and Blue
of Michigan at the annual Drake Re-
lay carnival in Des Moines, Ia., to-I
morrow and Saturday.
The team leaves the Michigan Cen-
tral station at 8:29 this morning and
is scheduled to arrive at Des Moines
at 7:50 tonight. The athletes will
return Sunday at 9:22 p.m.
Trip Roster
Captain Piel's cohorts on this an-
nual trip are Bill Ackerman, Bud
Byerly, Len Alkon, Willie Glas, John
Ingersoll, John Kautz, Ernie Leon-
ardi, Dave Matthews, Frank McCar-
thy, George Ostroot, Buell Morley,
George Pettersen, John Roxborough,
Al Thomas, Bob Ufer, John Wise,
Livius Stroia, Joe Lahey, Bob Segula
and Chuck Donahey.
Since Doherty must serve as referee
at this year's track carnival, Frosh
Coach Chet Stackhouse will be in
charge of the squad. Jim Galles,
1941-42 wrestling captain, will serve
as trainer.
One of the six relay teams slated
to compete for the Wolverines will
be the shuttle relay quartet of Lahey,
Stroia, Byerly and McCarthy, run-
ning in that order. Each man runs
one flight of the 120-yard hurdles.
Meet Will Be Test
With the Conference and dual
meets on schedule, Coach Doherty
plans to use this opening outdoor test
as a springboard for his squad. The
two questions, "what will Michigan
have for the outdoor season" and
"who will represent the Wolverines,,"
will be answered by the competing
athletes. Decisions will be made on
the basis of their performances in
the Relays.
The Maize and Blue can not cop the
Drake relay title but the experience
and knowledge gained by Doherty on
the strength of its showing may help
win the more important meets on
the spring calendar.

ance which can compare with Weir's
strong aggregation, and his choice
for the rest of the team will be based
mainly on spring drills.
Armin Schudson and Bob Bruce
were lettermen from last year and
will probably face Michigan's Por-
ter and Stille in the second and third
singles spots, respectively. Bill
Wright, a minor award winner, will
battle it out with Schaflander in the
fourth division, but none of the Wis-
consin trio have looked exceptionally
good and may be replaced by some
of Sanger's sophomores.
Beamish, Bredhead To Play
In all probability the remaining
twQ places will be filled by John
Beamish, most promising of the two-
year men, and Dick Brodhead, who
will come up against last year's fifth
and sixth bracket Big Ten cham-,
pions - Tom Gamon and "Jinx"{
Johnson-respectively.
Sanger will team Gorenstein and
Bruce to face the Michigan co-cap-
tains in the first singles battle, and
then pair off Schudson and Wright
to face the Wolverine number two
combination of Porter and Schaf-
lander.
In the final match of the after-
noon, Weir will send Gamon and
Johnson against Wisconsin's two
sophomores Beamish and Brodhead.

Weirmen Face Badgers Today
In first Big Ten Match Away

By BOB STAHL
For any guy to follow in his broth-
er's footsteps is usually a pretty big
order, especially if that brother is a
famous athlete. But for a guy to
follow in the footsteps of three broth-
ers, all of whom have made a name
for themselves in the realm of sports
well, that should be about as difficult
as trying to find the proverbial needle
in the proverbial haystack. And no-
body is more aware of that fact than
is Mickey Fishman, promising hurl-
er of the Wolverine baseball squad.
A Family Tradition
Mickey has three older brothers,
each of whom won at least one Mich-
igan letter while in college, and for
four long, hard years, the husky sen-
ior has been striving to carry on the
family tradition by carving his own
little niche in Michigan's record
books. With plenty of what it takes
to be a good pitcher, Fishman was
plagued by Old Demon Ineligibility
and not until this year did he make,
grades.
Last Friday Mickey won his first
game as a Wolverine pitcher, limiting
Virginia to four hits, and so, at long
last, attained the goal he has been
seeking ever since his first brother
won his letter way back in 1930.
Letter-Winning Brothers
Regardless of any state gambling
laws in existence at the time, it
would appear that the Wolverines
really hit the jackpot when oldest
brother Ben Fishman earned his let-
ter in swimming in 1930. For after
him came brother Mannie, who won
a basketball letter in 1934, and then
brother Herm, most famous of the
clan, who earned six letters, three
in basketball and three in baseball
in 1936, 1937 and 1938. Herm later
signed up to play pro ball and pitched
two seasons for Syracuse in the In-

ball and tossed a short pass ahead to
Nelson who threw a perfect peg all
the way in to catcher George Harms
and George tagged the surprised Mr.
Harrison out. Nelson's throw was
well over 200 feet and only bounced
once on its trip to the plate.
The Wolverines picked up eight

And now comes brother number 4
in the person of Mickey, making the
Fishman family the first in the his-
tory of Michigan athletics to have
four letter-winning brothers. But
Mickey assures us that unless there
is another brother hiding at home in
the closet, he is the last of the clan.
The youngest brother of the Fan-
ous Fishmans is quite an athlete in
his own right. Back. in Detroit's
Northern High School, the amiable
pitcher was awarded three letters in
baseball anld two in swimming and
was honored in his senior year by
being elected captain of the baseball
team.
Wants To Play Pro Ball
True to family precedent, Mickey's
greatest ambition in life is to play
pro ball when he graduates. Natur-
ally, any bids he gets from big league
talent scouts will depend on what
kind of a record he turns in this sea-
son, but if heredity counts for any-
thing as far as athletic ability is
concerned, those scouts will be seek-
ing Mickey's services just as they did
those of brother Herm several years
ago.
In a family as sports-minded as
Mickey's, even Papa Fishman is an
avid baseball fan. "He watches us
boys like a hawk," said Mickey, "and
if I can get him permission, hie'll
probably sit on the bench with the
players up here just like he did
when I was in high school."

OU WANT to fight for your
country! Are you willing to
work for it? To toughen yourself
physically? To train yourself
mentally for a real job in the
United States Navy? If you are,
the Navy wants you to enlist now.
You don't have to quit college.
You can stay in college, continue
your studies to prepare for active
duty in the air or on the sea.
And your college will help you
do it! In cooperation with the
Navy, it offers all freshmen and
sophomores who are seventeen
and not yet twenty, special train-
ing that may win for you the cov-
eted Wins of Gold of a Naval
Aviation Officer or a commission
as a Deck or Engineering Officer.
How to Become an Officer
To get this special Navy training,
you enlist now as an Apprentice
Seaman. Then you may continue
in college, but you will include
special courses stressing physical
development, mathematics and
physics. After you successfully
complete 1%~ calendar years in
college, you will be given a classi-
fication test.
Aviation Officers
If you qualify by this test, you

may volunteer to become a Naval
Aviation Officer. In this case, you
will be permitted to finish the sec-
ond calendar year of college work
before you start your training to
become a Flying Officer.
However, at any time during
this two-year period, you may
have the option to take immedi-
ately the prescribed examination
for Aviation Officer... and, if suc-
cessful, be assigned for Aviation
training. Students who fail in
their college courses or who with-
draw from college will also have
the privilege of taking the Aviation
examination. Applicants who fail
to qualify in this test will be or-
dered to active duty as Apprentice
Seamen.
Deck or Engineering Officers
Those who qualify in the classifi-
cation test and do not volunteer

for Aviation will be selected for
training to be Deck or Engineer-
ing Officers. In that case, you will
continue your college program
until you receive your bachelor's
degree, provided you maintain the
established university standards.
Those whose grades are not high
enough to qualify them for Deck
or Engineering Officer training
will be permitted to finish their
second calendar year of college.
After this, they will be ordered
to duty as Apprentice Seamen,
but because of their college train-
ing, they will have a better chance
for rapid advancement. At any
time, if a student should fail in
his college courses, he may be
ordered to active duty as an
Apprentice Seaman.
Pay starts with active duty.
It's a real challenge! It's a real
opportunity! Make every ninute
count by doing something about
this new Navy plan today.
