Mile, Two-Mile; Fisher Leads Hurdle Events
Michigan thinclads, fresh from a sterling performance at the Penn
Relays, will compete in thirteen different events in their first meet com-
petition of the outdoo'r season when they journey to Lafayette, Indiana
Saturday to meet Purdue and Miami in a triangular meet.
Track Coach Ken Doherty announced that the Hume twins would
be unable to compete because of special medical school work and in their(
stead he would enter Archie Parsons< * * *
and Bob Thomason in the mile, and
Charles Birdsall in the two mile.
Wolvetines Enter Dashes
Other events that the Wolverines
are entered in are the 100, 220, 440
yard dashes, the half-mile run and
the 120 high and 220 low hurdles.
Michigan will also compete in the
following field events: shot put, dis-
cus, high jump, broad jump, pole
vault. Here the Wolverines are not
as strong as in the running events,
and this meet will answer many
questions as to the actual strength
of his field men for Coach Doherty.
Fisher Favorite in Hurdles
In the hurdle' events, Wolverine V
timber toppers will run against Har-...
old "Whitey" Fisher, who turned in
a :15.1 time for the 120 high hurdles
at the recent Drake Relays.
Following this weekend's meet with
Purdue and Miami the tracksters will
return to Ann Arbor to prepare for
the star-studded quadrangular meet
the following week. Here the Wol-
verines will run against Great Lakes, .
Illinois, and Ohio State, which schools

I HE NEW YORK Yankees. world's richest ball club, which was sold a
short time ago to a trio of wealthy men, namely, Larry MacPhail,
I Capt. Dan Topping and Del Webb, are now in second place behind the
Chicago White Sox as a result of their week-end victories.
Although they are now perched in second place, the Yankees made
an inauspicious start which was somewhat surprising, but their showing
to date is meaningless so early in the season.
Many newspaper men claimed that the Yankee's fortunes didn't begin
to rise until 1920 when Babe Ruth and Ed Barrow joined with them, stating
that the Yanks could attribute their greatness to the aforementioned men,
as well as the sports boom which occurred around that time.
These same scribes implied that the advent of MacPhail, long-noted as
a baseball showman, into the Yankee picture would see startling changes
in the then-conservative outlook of the Yank executives, and that his radical
ideas would once more elevate the New York ball club to the pinnacle of
success it held before the war. However, many of the anticipated changes
have not yet occurred, nor has the verbose gent issued many statements
which would tend to indicate that he proposed many changes, and this
where the main source of surprise emanates.
l AC PHAIL was formerly head of National League clubs at Brooklyn and
Cincinnati before he joined the syndicate which purchased the Yankees
at a reputed $2,800,000. This sale included all of the club's property, of
which Yankee Stadium in New York and the baseball parks at Kansas
City and Newark were a part.
It was at Brooklyn that MacPhail managed to capture the public's
eye, and the things he did were limited only by his imagination. He put
in a pipe organ, staged fashion shows on the diamond, put on rodeos, and
was the first person to introduce night baseball in the major leagues.
MacPhail's impressions of the first few games at Yankee Stadium
have left him with a lonesome feeling since he considers it too large
"to really enjoy a ball game in." MacPhail has been contemplating a
loud speaker system for music in the park to add color to the place
and offset some of the obvious faults.
The only comment that MacPhail could make on this topic of changes
is that "I'll do something about it," and knowing the type of work that he
is capable of when he makes such a statement, many people realize that
this is more of a threat than a promise..

a so-so start over the weekend as they
split a two-game series with Iowa.
The Gopher nine took the first game,
4-1, but were defeated in the return
engagement by a 6-4 count.
Eight lettermen, four squad mem-
bers from 1944, three freshman stand-
outs, and a flock of Navy transfers
make up the bulk of Minnesota's
team. The pitching staff is particu-
larly outstanding with three hurlers
given star billing. Two of these,
Gene Kelly and Matthew Nolan, were
1944 lettermen. Although an injured
arm kept him off the mound most of
last season, Kelly is purported to be
one of the fastest pitchers in college
baseball. A recent leg injury may
bench him in the weekend series.
Nolan's record of three wins and one
loss last season puts him among the

1943, will play in the outfield. Ed
Schaller and Wes Johnson may help
patrol the outer gardens.
Meanwhile, Coach Fisher is also
contemplating a single game with
a Romulus Air Base nine Sunday at
Romulus. He expects to start Jack
Peddy, who pitched the opening three
innings in yesterday's 5-3 victory
over the University of Detroit, on the
mound. Tom Rosema will be unable
