Netters Make Debut Saturday
Against Western Michigan
Second-String Blue Team Wins
Intra-Squad Baseball Game; 4-3
By DAVE LOEWENBERG
With the opening match against
Western Michigan only a few days
away, Coach Leroy Weir has been
working the netters overtime in an
effort to get them in good shape for
Coach Weir has already selected an
11 man squad, but indicated that he
is undecided as to which players will
comprise the starting lineup. Accord-
ing to Weir, Jinx Johnson, Roger
Lewis and Jim Froelich are certain
to be the first three men on the team,
but the remaining three positions are
fairly indefinite. At present Weir is
concentrating all his efforts in an
attempt to fill up the remaining posi-
tions. Weir said, "We have four or
five players who are capable of play-
ing Big Ten tennis, and now I'm run-
ning a series of challenge matches so
I can get a line on the best talent
Wage Battle for Positions
The principal contenders for the
last three positions are Merle Gulic,
Dave Post, Roy Boucher and Bill
Ford. Boucher was a letter winner on
last year's squad, while Post was
forced to quit the team, due to illness.
Gulic hails from the sunny shores of
California and Ford was a top rank-
ing netter in Detroit prep circles.
Farnum Johnson, Bob Matthews,
Gus Rueda and Bob Richards com-
plete the 11 man roster. These four
players have been engaging in prac-
tice matches with the above quartet
and it is upon a basis of comparative
scores that Coach Weir will make his
Weir seems to be optimistic over
the team's chances for making a good
showing in the Conference race. "We
have a much stronger team than last
year," said Weir, "and I have every
reason to suspect that we'll give a
good account of ourselves in the en-
To date, the team has been ham-
pered by inclement weather, but it is
hoped. that they will be able to move
outside by Thursday or Friday. It is
very difficult for the boys to accli-
mate themselves to outside playing
conditions, especially when they have
been playing so long on wood.
Open Season in Chicago
The Wolverines will open their Big
Ten campaign April 29 when they
tackle Minnesota and Chicago in the
Windy City. It has been rumored
that Buck Shayne, a former Kalama-
zoo College star is now playing with
the Maroons, but no definite inf or-
mation has been received as to whe-
ther or not he will be able to com-

In preparation for the belated sea-

drove his charges through a nine

it off with a brisk fungo drill for his

Bo Bowman opened on the mound
for the Reds and Dick Schmidtke for
the Blues. Fisher's two aces each
gave up three runs in the four innings
they worked. Bowman was again
troubled by wildness, forcing in all
three markers on a pair of walks and
a hit batsman after the Blues loaded
the bases in the second.
Schmidtke was pounded~ rather
freely by the regulars, giving up four
hits in his tenure, most of which
came with men on the bases. In the
fifth, Hirsch took over for Schmidtke'
and Al Willers came in in place of
Bowman. Both men hurled runless
ball until the ninth although defen-
sive lapses put them in trouble sev-

Both Hirsch and Willers looked
very good over the five inning stretch.
The former gave up three safeties,
two of them of the flukey variety,
and passed two men.
Fisher juggled his lineup some-
what for the tilt, putting in Farnyk
at Nussbaumer's third base berth and
moving "Nuss" down to the second
string temporarily. Elmer Swanson
and Tom King, first and second
string first sackers, were absent be-
cause of illness, necessitating the use
of Art Renner and Jack Hackstadt,
both pitchers, at the bag.

The team has been weakened in
various spots and in an effort to
balance up the squad. the broadjump,
mile, 880, two-mile and sprints are
getting special attention.
The first time trials are slated for
this Thursday and Friday, and it will
be interesting to note how the times
run as compared to the winter's in-
door performances. These trials will
be the first indication as to how the
Wolverine squad will stack up when
it makes its first spring showing April
29 in the Penn Relays. Because only
a week and a half remain before this
meet, these next practice sessions
promise to be intense workouts.
Dartmouth Has Strong Team
From early reports, Dartmouth is
being looked upon as one of the most
likely contenders at the Relays. The
Indians, who had one of the finest
indoor track teams in the East, have
since picked up some more transfers
which will undoubtedly add to the
power of their aggregation. The
