Sgt. Joe Smith, Somewhere,
I can just see you sitting back
munching Frankfort or Hamburg
sandwiches. Or is it Limburg? I
never could keep the names of those
German towns straight. Anyway,
when the Nazis said we had landed
tanks by air 70 miles from Berlin, I
said to myself: "That's good old Joe,"
as I knew if someone saw you para-
chuting down they'd mistake you for
All kidding aside, Joe, we're just
popping our vest buttons in pride
over you fellows. You're taking those
towns so fast you have to say: "This
must be Kassel, wasn't it?"
Pick-Up on Sports
I'll try to give you a quick pick-up
on the sports news back here. As
you've probably guessed, the major
league teams are breaking camp,
with still little sign of who is what
so far as pennant favorites are con-
cerned. Even the Phils are given a
gold chance of finishing first. Re-
member when the best you could
give them was a good chance of fin-
SourDodgers were blanked last
Saturday by the West Pointers. May-
be Mr. Rickey has been lecturing the
wrong squad by mistake. However,
that defeat doesn't mean much. The
Browns beat the Cards, too, but it
was six months too late to mean any-
thing. You can throw out these pre-
season games as easy as Ernie Lom-
bardi on an infield roller.
Nelson Still Tops
Byron Nelson still is making par
look silly on the winter golf tour,
while Sam Snead's game has had a
relapse. They should examine that
Nelson for hidden range finders or
bazookas. He's just too mechanical
to be human. I'd like to see him blow
up some day and shoot a par round.
If he doesn't, they're going to start
making him play with a hockey stick
and feather ball just to even things
Well, Joe, that's about all for now.
I hope that by the next time I write
I can give you some kind of line on
the major league races. Right now
the only line forms at the right. I'm;
trying to keep up wifth you in the
newspapers, but every time I skip an
edition I lose you. Keep punching.

During yesterday's outdoor session,
Fisher's charges went through a
practice game. Joe Soboleski subbed

Barclay Played in '36
In the spring of 1936, Michigan's
golf mentor was a varsity linksman,
and that season the golf team cap-
tured the Conference crown. For the
next two years, Barclay not only was
a member of the football and golf
squads but he also managed to hold
down a spot on the Wolverine quin-
After getting his degree in 1938,
he went to Davison, Michigan. for
one year where he coached the high
school football and basketball teams;
and before returning to his alma
mater three years ago, he coached
these same two sports at the Cadillac,
Michigan, high school. Prior to as-
suming his duties as head of the
Wolverine links squad, he assisted
Bennie Oosterbaan in basketball, and
Fritz Crisler with the Michigan foot-
Coach Is Confident
Commenting on the chances of his
charges for copping their fourth con-
secutive Big Ten title, Barclay said
that with Paul O'Hara, John Tews,
Phil Marcellus, and John Jenswold,
four of the five members of last
year's championship team back again,
the facts should speak for them-
Barclay has participated in various
tournaments, and believes that con-
test experience is valuable to all golf-
ers. He won the Michigan Amateur
Tournament in 1939.
