the IM Building the other day,
where the meteorological school sol-

Examining the group more closely,
we realized that there was one

how seemed out of place. It

Another Triumph

cises-and it wasn't that he wasn't
trying-because even from outside
the gym we could see that he was
struggling hard. It was just that
when the rest of the group squatted
he stood up-and when the rest of
the group stood up, he squatted.
When his pals bent to the left he
bent to the right and vice versa, and
the sad part was that he 'knew it,
and he was working like a Trojan to
get in the swing.
Each time an exercise began he
got off to, a wrong start, and he
worked doubly fast to try to get
even, but always, just as he was a
half motion away from the rest of
the group, halt was called and a
new drill began. And promptly the
poor blonde lad started wrong
again. Even the square-holed Ar-
my seems to have a few round pegs
that won't fit.
has remarked on the fact that the
poys stationed in East Quad, as well
as being potent on the marching
end, are not averse to a little sing-
ing. "Glory, glory Hallelujah" and
various other familiar strains are
apparently a regular part of the
day's repertoire. To the majority of
people this morale-building tech-
nique seems a rather fine, and cer-
tainly harmless business, but we
were rather touched by the plaintive
problem of one girl who lives on
East University, just across from the
Seems that she is a senior and
has until this year been burdened
with 8:00 classes. Now on Tuesdays
and Thursdays she has blessed
respite from drudgery until 10:00
a.m. She has always thought it
would be fun to sleep late, and she
did until the past week. However,
she has decided to grin sturdily
and bear it as one of "the hard-
ships of war" when the meteor-
ological school soldiers march
breezily by her house at 7:30 a.m.
singing "The Army Air Corps."
AND MORE-The hup, hie, hee,
ho, or whatever that strange declen-
sion of a Latin noun is, that ser-
geants shoot out of the corners of
their mouths, seems to have a subtle
fascination for the civilian pedes-
trian. Saw Jim Brieske walking be-.
hind a group the other day, hup, 2, 3,
4ing with the best of them, and all
unconsciously too. Some little girl
walking close behind another group
was also marching sedately in step,
but so engrossed was she in the con-
versation of the tall thing beside
her, that when the column stopped
for some unexplained reason, she
didn't-until she found her face
ground against the back of the last
man in line.
She blushed a beautiful shade
of scarlet, and several civilians
laughed, but apparently the Army
is used to such situations and can
cope with them intelligently, for
the assaulted van man merely cast
her one diffident look and then
marched ahead, eyes front!

The National Collegiate swimming
championships being held this Friday
and Saturday at Columbus are sure
to provide a lot of very good "races.
The best of these will probably come
from the freestyle sprint contests.
No one can challenge the fact that
Harry Holiday of the Wolverines is a
cinch for the backstroke crown or
that Frank Dempsey of the Buckeyes
will take the diving for the second
straight year. Either of Ohio's dis-
tance aces, Keo Nakama or Bill Smith
would be certain to capture the 440-
yard freestyle with Nakama winning
the 1500 meter grind.
But no such a situation exists in
the shorter freestyles. This is not
because, as in the breaststroke, there
is no one outstanding since the de-
cision of Michigan's Jim Skinner not
to spare the time from his medical
studies. It is because there is too
much talent, if all the stars expected
appear in Columbus.
In the 50-yard sprint, for instance,
the lineup of entrants sounds like
a rehearsal for an All-American
team. Ernie Kozlowski, brilliant
Northwestern freshman, would be
perhaps the favorite: he swam a 22.9-
second fifty in the Big Ten freshman
relay race on the way to a 51.2-sec-
ond century.
Yale will not enter a team because

of transportation difficulties, so its
amazing Alan Ford, also a freshman,
will very probably not be on hand. He
has consistently turned in times of
However, his loss will not be felt
overly much, for at Columbus will be:
Ed Hall of Massachusetts State, win-
ner of the Eastern Intercollegiate 50:
Pete Powlison of the University of
Washington, Pacific Coast champ in
the 50 and 100; and Michigan's Mert
Church, winner at the distance in the
Big Ten meet.
The 100 will feature the above-men-
tioned stars plus Jim Ammon of Am-
herst, who was behind Hall in the
Eastern 'century, and Captain Jack
Patten of Michigan, the defending
220-yard champion and the Big Ten
titlist at both 100 and 220 yards. In
addition, Bill Smith of the host
Buckeye team might enter this race,
and he would be sure to win a place.
Again in the 220-yard contest a
galaxy of freestyle luminaries will
swim. Nakama or Smith of Ohio, Pat-
ten, the defending champion and
holder of the NCAA record of 2:10,
and Gene Rogers, Columbia fresh-
man who won the Eastern crown at
the distance last week, are all
bunched with very fast times to their

one of the gridders out for an outfield berth, he's a slugger and
almost a sure bet to start his second season as a regular.

Olutfield Shapes Up Well
Despite Lack of Practice

With an outfield that is shaping up
rapidly, Coach Ray Fisher seems to
have an abundance of material to
cover the acres out beyond the bases.
Although the possibilities for prac-
tice in the outfield positions is not as
great as for any of the other slots,
still from all indications there are at
least six men who are well qualified
to take over the outfield.
The first three possibilities for the
outfield positions are all old com-
panions taken from the Michigan
backfield: Paul White, Don Lund and
Bob Wiese. Wiese and White are the
two potential heavy hitters on the
squad, something which may count
for a good deal if none of the infield
squad can turn out heavy sluggers.
However, Bruce Blanchard, who is
almost a certain starter at the third
sack position, is probably the heaviest
hitter on the squad. Therefore the
outfield jobs may not be held by
those who can hit best, but will be
determined more accurately on field-
ing ability that can only be ascer-
tained more completely when the
squad starts working outdoors.
Don Lund has not been as active

on the hitting end as have Wiese and
White, but is improving daily, and
more will undoubtedly be said of him
when the boys start picking up the
hot balls in the outfield.
Two freshmen have also a very
good chance of holding outfield posi-
tions, Bob Nussbaumer, who has been
prominent both on the freshman
football and freshman track teams,
and Myron "Mike" Farnyk, who is
developing into an excellent batter,
with unexpected power.
Although this forced indoor prac-
tice is perhaps hardest on the outfield
men who must remain idle except as
far as hitting is concerned, still it
would seem that Fisher has a quality
and quantity of material which
should make the problem of covering
the outfield a comparatively minor

Detroit Tigers
EVANSVILLE, Ind., March 23.-P)
-The Detroit Tigers got in three
hours of hard work under a warm
sun today to tune up for tomorrow's
opening intrasquad game between
Manager Steve O'Neill's rookies and
Coach Al Vincent's veterans.
St. Louis Cardinals
CAIRO, Ill., March 23.--P)-Most
advanced of all major league teams in
spring training, the St. Louis Cardi-
nals split into two squads under
coaches Mike Gonzalez and Buzzy
Wares today and played a 1 to 1 tie
in a fast 6-inning practice game.
St. Louis Browns
23.-P)-Paul Dean, one-time pitch-
ing star of the Cardinals, put on a
new St. Louis uniform today when he
reported for spring training with the
Browns in a come-back attempt after
winning 19 games for Houston last
Wenley Takes '11 Title
In Dormitory League
Wenley House B basketball squad
came through with a well earned
15-14 triumph over Michigan House
at the Sports Building last night to
capture the B league championship.
John Scoris was high point man for
the evening, accounting for one half
of the Michigan House total.
Acacia House by virtue of its 40-25
victory over Chi Phi captured second
place honors in the class A fraternity
league. Third place went to the losers.
Fred Bryan led the victor's attack
ringing up 12 points, while Warren
Shelly, his teammate, was close be-
hind with 10 points.

Chicago White Sox
FRENCH LICK, Ind., March 23.-
(P-Manager Jimmy Dykes, who has
been having trouble enough finding
a place where his Chicago White Sox
could work out without using pon-
toons, now has another problem-a
lineup for the scheduled exhibition
series with Detroit's Tigers Saturday
and Sunday at Evansville, Ind.
Dykes figures he can get together
nine men.

Chicago Cubs
FRENCH LICK, Ind., March 23.-
(P)-Chicago's Cubs continued their
workouts-two of them-on the 14th
fairway of a golf course today and
greeted three newcomers, pitchers
Dick Barrett and George Washburn

sound of exploding golf shots against
the canvas of the driving nets in the
IM building.
And last night was no exception.
Even before Coach Courtright arrived
at 7:30, five enthusiastic newcomers
to the squad were whamming away
with the woods and irons. "Corky,"
as the amiable instructor is known to
his proteges, circulates among the
fellows, and watches each individual's
swing, then makes whatever correc-
tions he can. He seems quite enthusi-
astic over some of these new golfers.
These men have already heard
tales of the wonders performed by
Ben Smith, his magic woods and little
white ball. Each of them is eagerly
awaiting Ben's appearance. "He
shoots like a rifle," says Courtright.
