Broncos Here

Western Squad To Give
Michigan Close Battle
Coach Fisher Nomninates Bh-wian, isch.I.
For Mound Duty; Team Meets Perry Sumlay

With four straight games already
safely registered on the win side of
the lever, Michigan's baseball team
will seek to extend its victory string
at the expense of Western Michigan
this week-end when they take on theI
Broncos in a two-game home series.
Western likewise has' a perfect
record in four contests to date,
marred only by an 11-inning 3-3 tie
with Northwestern. The Broncos.
coached by John Gill, eked out a 4-3
decision over Iowa, swamped Fort
Sheridan 10-0, and Tuesday pounded
out a 5-2 win over Fort Custer.
Biddle and Louthen Starj
Western Michigan is paced by two
ace pitchers, Warren Biddle and Ray
Louthen, who have both proved very
effective this season.B iddle, a south-
paw, was with the team last spring
and hurled in one of the two games
between Western and the Wolverines.
On that occasion, he was shelled
from the mound in the early innings
and Michigan went on to win, 12-11.
In the return contest at Kalama-
zoo, Biddle was called in from the
bullpen -in the later stages of the
game to protect a two-run lead and
pitched three scoreless frames as the
Broncos won, 4-2.
Bowman and Hirsch To Pitch
.Both Biddle and Louthen have
made one start, Biddle being dead-
locked in the Northwestern tie, and
Louthen getting credit for the Iowa
.victory. PDiddle will probably work in
Friday's game, while Louthen will go
to the mound Saturday.
Wolverine coach, Ray Fisher indi-
dated that hewouldprobably nomi-
niate his ace port-sider, Bao Bowman,
for the first tilt, and righthander
Elroy Hirsch for the second. Bowman
has notched two victories against
Iowa and Notre Dame, and Hirsch
has a single win in as many starts
against the Irish.
Michigan will be playing four
games in five days, going to Camp

Perry, O., Sunday and returning for
a contest with the Grosse ~e Nava 4
Base team Tuesday afternoon. Right-
hander Dick Schmidtke will prob-
ably make his initial start Sunday;
with Denny Manko seeking his sec-
ond win Tuesday.I

a t rMeets
Michigan's golf team, after bowing
to Ohio State 12-6 last Saturday,
is now making preparations for two
matches this week-end when they will
be seeking honors at Western Mich-
igan and Notre Dame.
Coach Courtright said that one of
the reasons for the Buckeye victory
was that the Ohioans had about two
weeks more practice than the Wol-J
verines, and this accounted for their
better than average game. Also the
rolling greens of the Ohio course pre-'
sented quite a problem to the link-
sters and consequently there were a
large number of three-putt greens.
The putting difficulty probably was
the major factor for the defeat. Mich-
igan's golf mentor remarked that
when Ohio State plays here May 13
the decision may be reversed because
by that time the golfers will have had
the needed practice and will be hitting
their stride.
Tews Is Low Man
The low manfor Michigan was
Jack Tews who turned in a 79, but
he could not keep pace with the
Buckeye's star linksman, Dick Peter-
son, who scored a 71 for the day. In
last year's Conference golf champion-
ship Peterson placed third among the
Big Contestants. The only victory for
the Maize and Blue came during the
best ball matches when Capt. Mar-
cellus and Messinger defeated Love
and Spilker. Michigan also halved
two singles matches.
Michigan in Triangular Match
This week-end the Wolverines will
travel to South Bend where a tri-
angular match will be held between
Michigan, Notre Dame and North-
western. On this same trip Coach
Courtright's charges will also play
Western Michigan but "Corky" has
not definitely decided who will go.
He said that six players will be cho-
sen, and probably the five golfers,
who were at Ohio State plus one oth-
er will make the journey. The golf-
ers most likely to play are Messinger,
Tews, Marcellus, Jenswold, O'Hara,
and either Noble, Welling or Burke.I

Track Squad

Ufer-Keley Duel To
1 ighlight Meet; Relay
Te irms Also( torupele
Having made one of the best per-
formances displayed by a Wolverine
track squad at the Penn Relays, the
thinclads settled down to a hard
workout yesterday in preparation for
their first Big Ten meet. a triangular
affair, with Illinois and Pu-due here
a week from Saturday.
Coach Ken Doherty ran the squad
through a vigorous workout for this
meet which promises to be a preview
of the Big Ten Championship to be
held at Champaign next month. It
will be the only outdoor meet, to be
held here this season.
Young Sparks Illitii
All the first and second place win-
ners from the Big Ten indoor meet
except three will be on hand. The
three exception are Russ Thomas in
the shotput and John Schmidt in the
pole vault, both from Ohio State.
Heading the Illinois aggregation
will be Buddy Young who is National
AAU Junior Champion in the 100-
yard dash and who last Saturday
at the Drake Relays won this event
and the broad jump as well as an-
choring two Illini relay teams to
victory. The 440 will feature Michi-
gan's Bob Ufer who will attempt to
avenge last year's defeat in the out-
door meet at the hands of Bob Kelley
of Illinois. Ufer beat Kelley in the
Big Ten indoor meet this year.
Battle Wages in Mile Relay -
Michigan's mile relay team which
was one of the best in the country
indoors and which ran a 3:21.8 at
Philadelphia Saturday in finishing
third, will compete against the Illinois
quartet which turned in a 3:21.1 at
the Drake Relays.

choices of ten experts. together with the choices of the general public, of
what they consider the greatest player of all time in each of the nine
positions. This is how the public picked their all-time players (percentage

INetters Win First Three Matches;
Prepare for Irish This Week-EnId

THiE CLOSEST RACE~ is for the second bease position where Eddie Collins
garnered 12.28 per cent more of the vote cast than sdid Napoleon Lajoie.
Rogers Hornsby was only a bat length behind Nap with a total of 16.10
per cent. Jimmy Collins trailed Pie Traynor for third base by only 13.21
per cent, and it is here that we, had we had a vote, would have cast our
ballot for Collins. Of the ten experts (made up of owners, coaches and
players), four picked Collins and three chose Traynor.
We agree quite consistently with the votes cast by John Q. Public
In almost all of thepositions. As stated before we would have chosen
Jimmy Collins for third, second is a tossup, and we would have chosen
both Johnson and Mathewson on the mound.
LL PLAYERS on the first team except Bill Dickey and Pie Traynor
reside in the Hall of Fame in Couperstown, N.Y. The only catcher in
the Hall of Fame is Buck Ewing, while third base is still open. The legend-
ary outfield of Ty Cobb, Tris Speaker and Babe Ruth have a combined
average of a little under 80 per cent.

So far this season Michigan's ten-
nis team has not run up against veryl
strenuous competition, although in-
dividual performers have been de-1
feated in every match.
One look at the three wins, all of1
them by wide 8-1 margins, testify to
the fact that Coach LeRoy Weir's
netters have not been stretched to
the limit of their capabilities in
trouncing first Western Michigan and'
last week-end Big Ten rivals, Minne-
sota and Chicago.
Each of Top Men Has Lost
Each of the netters in the top three
spots has lost one match, Roger Lewis ,
going down to defeat in his Bronco:
match, before the steady numberI
three man had hit his stride for the
season. Jinx Johnson lost in the+
Minnesota meet, 6-1, 3-6, 6-4 toI
rangy John Adams, which loss was
partially due to the fact that the un-
lucky Jinx broke his glasses just be-
fore the meet began, and it was Jim

Frolik. number two singles man, who
lost the only match in the Chicago
meet, when he was handed a lacing
by Harry Tully, hard-hitting Maroon.
Considering that these three men
have been taking on the best mater-
ial each squad has to offer, the roe-
ord they have maintained is an ad-
miable one, despite the few losses.
Not one of the other three singles
men, Bill Ford, Dave Post and Merle
Gulic, has met with defeat.
Irish Are Threat
The first real threat to Michigan's
net power will come this week-end
when the Maize and Blue squad will
travel to Notre Dame to meet what
is reputed to be a powerful Irish
team. The Irish have been handing
their competition much the same sort
of treatment that the varsity netters
have, and last week-end the netters
from Notre Dame cleaned up on
Northwestern with the same seven
point advantage that Michigan has

To help your washer stand u under the big load
it laces for the duration, keep in mind these few
simple rules:
(1) Drain washer and rinse tub thoroughly after each
washing. Remove -agitator or suction cups and rinse.
(2) Wipe dry with a soft cloth to remove any soap
curd or lint that may remain. If your washer has a
spinner dryer, this too should be cleaned, rinsed and
wiped dry.
(3) Don't try to force thick, bulky articles through
your wringer-and especially don't run through belt
buckles or other hard objects that might cut the rolls.
They are rubber, and precious!
(4) Release the pressure on wringer when not in use.
This saves the spring and the rubber, and prevents
the rolls from becoming flat on one side.
(5) Don't overload your washer. Cramming in too
big a wash simply puts a strain on the motor, and
results in a less satisfactory job,
(6) When you finish washing, dry the wringer
thoroughly, also dry the connecting cord and wind
it up carefully. Leave cover off washer to prevent it
from becoming musty.
