D~iamnd Squad Pared
To Workable Size of 50

._._----. ,_... e v..._-- -_- - .._ _ -___.-_.___.____ -

Feller Sees Foe

Some 40 men felt the axe of Coach
Ray Fisher yesterday as the baseball
squad was pared to a workable size
of some 50 diamond hopefuls.
The personnel of the team is now
virtually complete with the addition
of several men from the track squad
which completed its championship
season at Chicago last Saturday. The
new arrivals include Elroy Hirsch,
who will be seeking his fourth letter
in less than a year under the Maize
and Blue colors. Hirsch came to
Michigan with a reputation as an
outfielder, but is trying his hand at
pitching as Fisher attempts to -plug
the holes in his mound corps.
Trackmen Report
Also out for the first time were
Bob Nussbaumer, an outfielder with
some playing experience from last
season, and Bruce Blanchard, vet-
eran third baseman. Both boys are
possibilities for regular berths.
Only catcher Elmer Swanson, who
may hold down the number one spot
behind the plate, has not joined the
team as yet. Swanson will not be
available until after the Chicago re-
lays Saturday in which he will seek
to bring home the high hurdles
Sport Stars Turn Out
Other notables working out under
Fisher's tutelage who have made
names for themselves in other sports
include such standouts as Tommy
King, high scorer in basketball dur-
ing the past winter who aspires to an

infield berth; Don Lund, a member
of the football and basketball teams
and also an outfield mainstay on
the baseball squad last year; and
Bob Weise, also a stellar performer
in football, basketball and baseball
in past years.
The pitching staff still shapes up
as Fisher's chief problem. Seventeen
hurlers, six of them port-siders, have
been working out for several weeks,
but most of them are of doubtful
calibre. It is too early in the cam-
paign to tell just how well they will
shape up, but it seems likely that
Fisher can find a couple of capable
moundsmen from this array of tal-

University Coach Has Varied
Experiences in Many Places

Ray Courtright, Michigan's golf
and wrestling .coach, is a "Jack-of-
all-trades," but contrary to the pop-
ular axiom he is a master of many.
Courtright graduated from the
University of Oklahoma in 1914.
There he excelled in football and
baseball. He was on their first un-
defeated eleven in 1911, and the fol-
lowing year he pitched a no-hit
game against the University of Mis-
souri, and 1-1 20 inning game against
Oklahoma 'A. and M.

Shying clear of all predictions
about the future of baseball or the
fate of the world champions in the
American League, Marse Joe's gen-
eral attitude can be summed up in
"We'll do our best."'
Asked how many players he would
consider a minimum for big league
clubs, McCarthy said, "We'll try to
keep up the 25-man limit as long
as possible. I hope that will be all
season but if we have to cut down
we'll cross that bridge when we come
to it."
McCarthy is letting the profession-
al worriers keep track of the absen-
tees and is going about his job of
trying to make another pennant
winner out of a mixture of 1943 hold-
overs and various assorted talent
from the farm system.
Atlantic City in March is not St.
Petersburg and training headquarters
on South Carolina Avenue is more
than a little bit north of South Car-
olina but McCarthy and the players
are tickled pink to be here or any-
where playing baseball.
The champs have an armory 100
by 200 feet for their early work. The
Bader Field Park freezes at night
and softens in the morning sun so
that it will not be available for at
least a week bt it will serve the
purpose when it's time to stat hit-
ting and playing games.
The Yankee boss is going to have
a pocket-sized infield set up in the
armory so that he can start work
on his double play combination.

to Montgomery the previous.
Contracts for the Angott fight, in
which the winner of the Montgom-
ery-Beau Jack scrap was to meet the
NBA king, were signed some time'
ago. When Angott dropped his title,
Montgomery pleaded he was too tired
for such a scrap and produced a phy-
sician's certificate to back him up.
The Commission, however, ordered
the lightweight champion in for a
physical examination today. Three
state-appointed physicians agreed
Montgomery was too tired to fight
Angott. '

Monte Klein, professional boxer
from Ann Arbor and graduate of the
University, annexed his second tri-
umph in Detroit fistic circles Mon-
day night by winning a four-round
decision over Irish (Red) Dutton in
a preliminary bout.

scored a knockout in his debut the
previous week. Both bouts took place

coming to the University of Michi-
gan. The first year he was at the
Tonkawa Prep School in Oklahoma.
From there he went to Pittsburgh
Normal, in Pittsburgh, Kan. While
at Pittsburgh Normal he coached
football, basketball and baseball.
Then followed five years at the Uni-
versity of Nevada as head football
coach and Director of Athletics. His
last position before coming to Ann
Arbor was at the Colorado School of
Mines, where he also tutored foot-
ball, basketball and baseball.
Courtright came to Michigan in
1927 and coached the "B" teams in
football and basketball. In 1929 he
was asked to coach tennis, and his
team won the dual meet champion-
ship of the Big Ten. After the com-
pletion of the University Golf Course,
his main interest was the golf team.
He was assistant golf coach under
Prof. Trueblood, but when Trueblood
resigned in 1937, Courtright became
head coach.
War Brings New Jqb
The war added another job for
Courtright to fulfill. When Cliff

Mike had already lined up another

the Navy, Courtright was asked to
coach the grapplers. While at Mich-
igan he has been able to prove his
versatility and adaptability as a
coach. "Corky" has been the mentor
of football, basketball, track, tennis,
wrestling and golf squads.
.His wrestling teams have made ad-
mirable records in the past two years,
Last year the matmen placed second
in the Big Ten standings, and this
season the boys won all the dual
meets in addition to the Conference
title, maring the second time Mich-

attributes the success of last year's
squad to four men: Manly Johnson,
145-pound Big Ten champ; Dick
Kopel, 121-pound Big Ten champ;
John Greene; and Paul Keen, broth-
er of former coach Cliff Keen. Coach
Courtright says that much credit for
this year's champion team should
be given to Jim Galles who helped
him with the wrestling duties. Court-
right has been happy coaching wrest-
ling, and calls it a "good he-man
Now that spring is almost here,
Courtright's interest is turned toward
the possibilities of the 1944 golf team.
In the past two years his teams have
won the Conference title, and he
would like to make it three straight.
The prospects for another success-
ful season seem bright. The only
returning letterman is Phil Marcel-
lus, but there are a few men from
last year's squad who are coming
again this season.
