Vetter, Star Half-Miler,
Lost for Outdoor Season
Conference Championship Chances Hindered1
By Losses to Draft; Marcoux Taken Earlier
Michigan hopes for a third suc-
cessive Western Conference outdoor
track championship this spring were
jolted yesterday with the announce-
ment that George Vetter, ace middle
distance runner, has been inducted
into the Army and will not be avail-
able for service.
Vetter, who picked up three valu-
able points in the Big Ten indoor
clash earlier in the spring by placing
third in the half mile, was one of the
Wolverine middle distance corps
which has borne the brunt of compe-
tition, all winter.
Severe Blow Dealt
Coach Ken Doherty, commenting
on Vetter's departure, called it a
"severe blow" to possibilities for an
outdoor championship at the Confer-
ence meet, May 26. "With two such
Opposition Was Fooled
By Faking of Signals"
By WHITNEY MARTIN
Associated Press Staff Writer
LAKEWOOD, N. J., April 6-G'P)-
"I'd like to have seen any of these
expert signal stealers try to steal
Mr. McGraw's signals," Eddie Bran-
nick was saying. "He'd have them so
mixed up they wouldn't know where
It was raining and the New York
Giant exhibition game had been call-
-ed off, so Eddie had plenty of time
to talk on a favorite subject. The
Giant secretary practically grew up
uider John McGraw, whom he never
mentions without the "mister."
McGraw Fakes Signals
"Mr. McGraw," he continued,
"might be fooling with a couple of
bats or doing something with his
hands to give the impression he was
giving signals, when all the time he
was telling someone down the bench
to give the signals, and what to sig-
"And I'd like to see some of the
smart traders today up against Mr.'
McGraw," he continued. "He never
got fooled. I remember once I was
walking down the street with him and
he said,. 'Eddie, I'm going to pull one
on Jack Hendricks. I'm going to
trade him John Kelly.'
Kelly Traded To Reds
"Hendricks was manager of the
Reds. Kelly seemed to be going good,
and I asked Mr. McGraw why he was
going to get rid of him. He said:
I've been watching him in batting
practice, and he's been missing fast
balls a foot. It's his eyes.' Well, he
traded Kelly for Ed Roush, and Kelly
only lasted a year or twoalongers
"Mr. McGraw always ran his bal
games, too. He'd call the pitches in
the tight spots, and whenever we were
to face dangerous hitters he'd say to
his pitchers: 'Thow it in -the dirt.'
Meaning to keep it around the knees,
as that's the toughest ball for anyone
to hit. If the hitter washwalked, all
right. It was better than having
him break up the game.
Names Put in Hat
"He was absolutely impartial in
dealing with his players. I remember
once on a training trip in Texas we
had upper and lower berths. I asked
him how to decide who would get the
uppers, and he said: 'Put the names
in a hat.'
"Well, I said: 'How about Mr.
Mathewson?" and he said: "Put his
name in, too. He's no better than
anybody else.' Mr. Mathewson drew
evenly matched squads as Illinois
and Michigan in the running, the
loss of even one or two possible
points by either school could make,
the difference," he remarked.
Doherty also said that he had
planned to increase Vetter's point-
making potentialities by doubling!
him back in the mile in addition to
his usual half mile stint. "But that's
a thing of the past, now," he added.
Marc oux Lost
Earlier, the loss of hurdler Bill
Marcoux, also an Army inductee, had
cut into Doherty's plans for another
championship squad. Marcoux plac-
ed fourth in the 70-yard low hurdles
at the Big Ten meet, adding two
more points to Michigan's total of
55 1110, one more than Illinois' out-
The loss of the two men thus rep-
resents a potential five-point de-
crease, and possibly more, in the
Wolverines' indoor strength. Such a
decrease might easily spell the differ-.
ence between first and second place
next month if the duel betweenf
Michigan and Illinois lives up to ex-
Vetter's induction may also be feltI
in the Penn Relays, April 28, Michi-
gan's first outdoor cinder competi-
tion. Vetter was expected to be a
member of one or more of the relay
teams entered by Doherty in the
annual eastern classic.

EVANSVILLE, Ind., April 6-UP)--Frank "Stubby" Overmire, Detroit
Tigers hurler who had a record of 11 wins and 11 losses during the 1944
season, is slated to face the Chicago White Sox in the opener of a four game
series at Terre Haute tomorrow.
Manager Steve O'Neill gave Overmire the nod as the Tigers were
breaking up their spring training camp here today. The Detroiters are
to move out on a road journey, which will take them to St. Louis for the,
Rounds in AA U
opening of their American League
campaign on April 17.
Overmire was elated at O'Neill's an-I
nouncement, as the White Sox were7
the left hander's particular "cousins"
last season as he chalked up four
wins over them while dropping onlyc
one decision to them.
O'Neill, reviewing the pre-season
training 'grind, expressed satisfaction
at the condition of his pitchers and-
described them as "Much farther ad-
vanced than they were at this stagel
of the season a year ago."
He said he was a little concerned
about the club's hitting, which has
been hampered by workouts in bad:
"I doubt that any other club is in
better physical condition and time 1
will tell how we'll stack up against'
'em in hitting," the Tigers mentor
said as he hobbled about on crutches.
He reported some improvement in
his arthritis, which has bothered him
for a week.
