H ARLIN "Whitey" Fraumann, stal-
wart end on Michigan's great
football team of the past year,
dropped into the Daily offices yester-
day with a bit of news which should
be of interest to every student on
the campus who is considering en-
listing in the Naval Air Corps.
The former Maize and Blue grid-
iron luminary is at present in the
employ of Uncle Sam, more speci-
fically, an ensign in the Navy. He
and Lieut. Harold Stoll are spending
their days on the campus with a
definite purpose in mind, namely to
form a Wolverine Squadron in the
air arm of the sea-going service.
Looking like the picture on a
Navy recruiting poster in his crisp
blue uniform and natty white cap,
Fraumann took time off yesterday
to explain the newly conceived
Wolverine Squadron. As has been
known for sometime, there is a
similar outfit in the Army Air
Corps and now Fraumann and
Lieutenant Stoll are here to estab-
lish one for the Navy.
ACCORDING to the two Naval em-
issaries, the squadron, as its

No Shortage
Of Ends Now
By KEV JONES
There is no great end now working
out with the Michigan football squad
on Ferry Field. But don't let that
fool you, the Wolverines will have
capable men in both flank positions
when they open the season next fall
against the Great Lakes Training
Station outfit.
Where last fall Coach Bennie Oos-
terbaan found two ends who claimed
to be able to take care of the job,
he now has several, and although
none of them is outstanding, the fact
that they will not be forced to play
the whole game gives them a decided
edge over last year's flankers.
Madar Heads List
Leading the list at present is speedy
Elmer Madar, converted from quar-
terback this spring. Elmer seems to
have found himself in his new post.
Two juniors from Chicago, Jack
Karwales and Rudy Smeja, will do
their share in the end posts; they are
the biggest flankmen practicing this
spring and both saw service lagst fall.
Phil Sharpe has only been prac-
ticing sporadically this spring, but
when fall rolls around he will un-
doubtedly be in there pitching. When
Joe Rogers got hurt last fall, Phil
was called upon to take his place for
a great deal of the time.
Bovee Looks Good
Freshmen fill out the list at ends
to watch. Cecil Bovee, who, like
Mdar, was converted from quarter-
back, being the best looking yearling.
Cliff Myll and Bob Orin both are
tagged as comers, although it is ques-
tionable whether they will see service
next year.
At any rate, when Coach Ooster-
baan says that the ends will be all
right, he has plenty of grounds on
which to make his statement; Michi-
gan has a good squad of flankers.

name implies, will be composed ex-
clusively of Michigan men. At pres-
ent, there are 15 members, but Frau-
mann emphasized that they wish to
increase that number to 20 or more.
Both of the officers will remain in
town all week to enlist men in the
Wolverine Squadron. They can be
reached at the Theta Chi fraternity
house every night, and it is there'
that the signing up procedure will
take place. The ex-Michigan flank-
man said that he will be glad to ex-
plain the proposal in full to any stu-
dents who are interested, and he
urges that they contact him as soon
as possible.
Fraumann, himself, is not a mem-
ber of the Wolverine Squadron.
Despite his desire to become a pilot,
poor eyesight forced the officials
to reject his application. He is
taking eye exercises, however, and
he claims that if they work as
expected he will soon take his place
beside the other Michigan air-
fighters.
If you will remember, Fraumann,
along with former wrestling coach
Cliff Keen and ex-tackle Bob Flora,
was called for special training at
Annapolis about two months ago.
All have completed their preliminary
period at the huge Navy school and
have been commissioned officers in
the Navy's immense physical fitness
program.
AND WHILE on the same subject
of enlisting in our nation's armed
forces, it seems that Michigan's track
squad will lose its one man team to
the war effort at the conclusion of
this season. Frank McCarthy, the
versatile junior who competes with
huge success in the high jump, broad
jump and hurdle events, has definite-
ly made up his mind to leave school
at the end of the semester.
The One Man Gang of the cin-
dertrack has already received his
Selective Service questionnaire, and
since he will undoubtedly be called
to the ranks before the summer is
over, Mae has decided to immedi-
ately enlist in the Marines, the
branch of the service he prefers.
The only hitch in the procedure is
that McCarthy is afflicted with
color-blindness, and thus may not
be accepted by the Marine board.
le was told in a recent interview
with the board, however, that the
color-blindness may be waived in his
case. If it is not, McCarthy intends
to join the Army as a buck private
since his sight deficiency prohibits
him from Officers' Training School.
ANOTHER ANGLE of more than
passing interest in the McCarthy
case revolves around the elder Mc-
Carthy, Frank senior. The Wolverine
track star's father is trying to get
in the Traffic Division of the Army
Air Corps, where he feels his experi-
ence in that kind of work can be
of some value.
DRIFTWOOD AND SPLINTERS:
The Benchcomber is willing and
ready to give free lessons on how to
alienate people and lose friends --

ers hustled down to the bookie's Sat-
urday to bet their meager allowances
on a horse named Hollywood in the
Kentucky Derby . . . now he has to

lone doubles match. The score indi-
cates that the change was not an un-
successful one.
Playing number one, Lawton Ham-
mett had a hard time getting started
and lost the first set, 7-5, to Ed Pro-
mack. That was as far as the well-
known Detroiter got, however, and he
bowed to Hammett's better play, 6-2,
6-3. Neither Hammett nor Promack
exhibited outstanding tennis but this
was largely due to the softness of
the courts after Sunday's rain.
Porter Wins Easily
Jim Porter, who has been playing
consistently good tennis this season,
didn't have much competition today
and won a mediocre match from El-
mer Miller, 7-5, 6-2. Porter, like all
the rest of the players, was hampered
by the weather conditions and his
performance ,yesterday was no indi-
cation of his real play.
.One of the few players to have
any trouble was Wayne Stille. Pitted
against Irv Fowler, Stille found him-
self in a real battle with the Tartar
and was extended to the limit in each
of three sets. Fowler, easily the best
Wayne player of the day lost to Stille,
6-4, in the first set but withstood a
three game rally by Stille in the sec-
ond set to win 10-8. The third set
was even at four-all when Stille,
serving with a new ball, took eight
straight points to win the set and
match.
Johnson Wins At Four

Smith Cards 68-67 As Varsity
Linksmen Whip Hoosiers, 18-6

Special to The Daily
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., May 4.-
Blazing Ben Smith carded a nine un-.
der par 68-67-135 to lead the Michi-
gan linksmen to an 18 to 6 victory
over the Indiana Hoosiers here on the
Indianapolis Country Club course to-
day.
It was Michigan all the way as they
took every point in the morning best
ball matches, and lost only one sin-
gles, while tying two others in the
afternoon. The Wolverines lone loss
occurred when Captain John Leidy
tallied the same medal score as his
opponent Lenny Murphy, a 75, but
still lost the match 3-0.
Cards Low Score
Smith was superb on the fairways
and his putting couldn't be beaten as
he sank them from all over the green.
His afternoon singles round of 67 is
the best he has carded this year and]
it was good enough to beat Hoosier1
Henry Timbrook, last year's runner-
up in the Indiana state amateur
championships, by seven strokes
when the Crimson ace shot a 74.
Wrestler Bill Courtright showed
the Indianans the longest drives they
had seen this year when he shot a
76-70-146 to score the second low-
est 36 hole round of the day. Court-
right added 4% points to the varsity
total as he tied Wendell Aldrich ij1
the only morning singles match and
then trounced Bob Boden 3-0 in the
afternoon when the Hoosier tallied a
77.
Sophomore Bill Stewart showed up

extremely well in carding a 75-73-
148 which was two strokes better
than Timbrook's 36 hole score. Stew-
art also swept his match, 3-0, when
he won over Aldrich who shot a 77.
Wolverine Chan Simonds' 76 gave
Michigan 11/ points when Dan Cra-
vens also shot a 76 for Indiana.
In the best ball matches, Varsity
Coach Ray Courtright teamed Smith
with Leidy in the number one doubles
and they had little trouble in de-
feating Timbrook and Murphy. Si-
monds and Stewart, second and
fourth singles men, formed the sec-
ond doubles combination and they,
too, had little trouble in taking their
match from Cravens and Boden.
