Practice as Opener Approaches
Squad Plays Oberlin in Twin Bill Next Week;
Stevenson, Renner Among Improved Hitters
LOWdown on Sports

Associate Sports Editor
Although the weather was good
enough for an outdoor practice on
the diamond yesterday, Coach Ray
Fisher chose to keep his baseball
charges in the Field House.
Fisher was leery of the condition
of the ground after the night's hard
freeze and the wetness of the turf.
However, if the weather continues
favorable, the outfielders will be out
this afternoon. If possible, Fisher
would like to arrange for an intra-
squad practice tilt tomorrow so that
all the men will get the feel of the

Fisher is especially anxious to
make outdoor preparations for the

The Sox made eleven hits, with Hal

Tom Turner a single and a triple.
The Cubs were held to four singles,
two off Thornton Lee and one each

doubleheader scheduled with Oberlin
April 15. Bob Gregor, an outfielder
who knows something of the Oberlin,
set-up this year, reports that the
outfit is loaded with Navy material
and is very anxious to play the Wol-
Another reason that Fisher is anx-
ious to get out to the diamondeis that
the other Big Ten schools are prob-
ably all practicing under regular
playing conditions. In fact, Fisher
has received the report that Wiscon-
sin's Badgers have scheduled a game
with the Milwaukee Brewers this
If the outfielders move outdoors
today, they will play pepper games
and in general try to get accustomed
to the light, which is most important
for timing. "The ball will look en-
tirely different to the boys, and the
air pressure will also be a new factor
to which they must become accus-
tomed," Fisher stated.
The team would undoubtedly have
been out yesterday if there were a
game scheduled for tomorrow. In;d
the Field House, activity continued
as usual, with several hitters showing'
marked improvement. Among the
batters, Bob Stevenson showed up tof
the best advantage, with Art Renner,
utility tryout, connecting with the
ball for several solid smashes.
A few men had been out during the
week, including catcher McDermot,
who had suffered an appendicitis at-
tack. Bob Rennebohm, regular out-
fielder last season for Wisconsin, also
returned to the Field House from a
bout with the same trouble.
Leahy Announces Notre
Dame Baseball Schedule
SOUTH BEND, Ind., April 6.-(1)-
A 22-game baseball schedule for the
Notre Dame varsity, with only eight
games at home, was announced to-
night by Frank Leahy, head coach
and director of athletics.
Coach Jake Kline has been forced
to conduct all his drills indoors be-
cause of unfavorable weather but
said that more than 100 ,candidates
have been reporting daily for the
workouts in the gymnasium.
Texas Schoolboy ...
THE OUTDOOR TRACK SEASON got under way last week-end, aftert
several weeks layoff since the end of the indoor session, when the Uni-
versity of Texas held its annual relays. Standout performance of the day
was turned in by Charley Parker, wonder boy from Thomas Jefferson High
who hasn't lost a sprint in three years. In addition to racing the century
in 9.6 and the 220 in 21.1, Parker twice came from behind to anchor his relay
teams to victory.
Jesse Owens set his world record for the 220 on May 25, 1935, here in
Ann Arbor, going the distance in 20.3. Owens also tied the 100-yard
record of 9.4 that same day, in addition to establishing world marks in the
low hurdles and the broad jump. All four world records are still in the
books, and the mark in the century is the only one Jesse is forced to share.
Parker came within two-tenths of a second of the record for the shorter
dash and eight-tenths of a second for the longer event. Still a school boy,
Parker may prove to be a greater sensation than Buddy Young of Illinois.
Young, himself only a freshman. burned up the tracks this past winter by
tying the accepted standard for the 60, which is listed at 6.1. Another
freshman, Al Lawrence, from Southern California, is also touted as a stand-
out performer on the cinders, and it would not be at all surprising if this
trio made a mass onslaught on the record books before the season ends.
Jesse Owens' marks have stood the test for nine years, but don't forget this
is the year that records are going the way of all flesh, e.g., the performances}
of Gil Dodds, Bill Smith and Alan Ford last month.
More Records .,. .
ABOUT A YEAR AGO, the Green Book (National League) and the
Red Book (American League) appeared, and among other things
were listed the various records of the Major Leagues. Every time Mel
Ott of the New York Giants hit a home run, drew a pass or batted in a
run last year he set a new National League record . . . His respective
totals are now 463, 1,539 and 1,695 . . . Back in 1897 Ed Delehanty
established a record by clouting ten straight hits . .. Woody Williams
of the Reds equaled this by doing the same last year to tie one of the
oldest existing records . . . Charley Keller was the only man in either
league to homer in eight parks.
Arky Vaughn gained his 2,000th major league hit to join Paul Waner,
Mel Ott, Billy Herman. Joe Medwick and Chuck Klein . . . Big Poison leads
the parade with 3,112 hits . . . The Yankees won 12 games in the ninth
inning, while they lost only four in the final frame . . . The White Sox
captured more games by one run than any other club . . . No wonder
Manager Jimmy Dykes is excitable.
Wolverine on Chicago Track Team ...
The Chicago track squad consists of only 15 men, and so the
Maroons will not engage any Big Ten schools in dual competition, but
rather will face such schools as Wheaton, Illinois Normal, Lawrence
and North Central. Buel Morley ,Wolverine quarter-miler of two years
ago, is on the crack Maroon mile relay team which Coach Ned Merriam
expects to enter in the Drake Relays. Morley, as a sophomore, ran in
the leadoff position for the Maize and Blue quartet.

Crisler Strives for
Ten Game Schedule
Fritz Crisler, Wolverine Athletic
Director, announced yesterday that
the Michigan football team would
open their 1944 season against Iowa
Pre-Flight here Sept. 16.
This game increases the schedule
to nine games, but Crisler also said
that he was still searching for an
opponent to fill the open date Sept.
23 to complete a ten game card. At
present Cornell looms as a possibility
for this encounter, providing the men
from Ithaca cancel their game with
Syracuse, pending the latter's discon-
tinuation of football for the dura-
This year's contest with the Sea-
hawks will provide the Wolverines
with an opportunity to avenge the
26 to 14 defeat suffered in 1942. At
one time in this game the Wolverines
enjoyed a 14 to 0 lead, only to have
the powerful Navy flyers cross the
Maize and Blue goal line four times
before the final gun.
This year's schedule at present
consists of five home games with the
Seahawks, Northwestern, Purdue, Il-
linois and Wisconsin, and four away
games including Indiana, Minnesota,
Pennsylvania and Ohio State. The
addition of an opponent for Sept. 23
would leave the Wolverines with one
open date-Oct. 21. This day falls
between semesters and will offer
Coach Crisler an opportunity to ad-
just his lineup in case of Navy and

Tigers, Pirates Clash
In Five Game Series
EVANSVILLE, Ind., April 6.--P)--
Spring attendance of the Tigers has
fallen off this year, but a crowd of
1,000 fans, most of them from De-
troit, is assured for tomorrow's ex-
hibition game here with the 820th
Tank Destroyer Battalion team of
Camp Breckenridge, Ky.
The entire battalion of 1,000 men
will make the 35 mile trip to Evans-

ville in 165 vehicles. Some 85 per cent
of the men and seven members of
the starting team are Detroiters. In-
asmuch as there is no admission
charge and civilians also are wel-
come, the game may draw the largest
crowd of the training season.
Manager Steve O'Neill today nom-
inated John Gorsica and rookie Zeb-
elon Eaton to face the soldiers on the
mound. Gorsica, who arrived late in
camp to find he had been named as
a starting pitcher this season, will
make his first start. Eaton, former
Detroit farmhand with an Army
medical discharge, pitched three inn-
ings in an intra-squad game a fort-
night ago and has been out with a

At the same time, O'Neill named
his two southpaws, Frank Overmire
and Hal Newhouser, to pitch against
the Pittsburgh Pirates here Saturday
in the opener of a five game spring
series. Overmire came up today with J
an aching right heel as the result of
an improperly fitted shoe, but he
said he would be ready for his regu-
lar turn. Newhouser has received
treatment for a sore arm.
