By BERNIE MEISLIN
For the second successive year,
Michigan's baseball squad was out of
Yost Field House and playing on the
Ferry Field diamond on the record
date of March 20th.
Coach Ray Fisher lost no time in
staging the first intra-squad game
of the season. The newcomers were
pitted against letterwinners from pre-
vious seasons in a seven-inning con-
test.
Wise, Swanson Form Battery
Opening on the mound for the old-
timei-s was Cliff Wise. Elmer Swan-
son operated behind the plate, Jack
Tallet was on first, on the keystone
sack was second year veteran Dominic
Tomasi. Shortstop Don Robinson and
Walt Kell at third rounded out the
infield. In the outer gardens were
Jack Weisenberger in left, Joe Sobo-
leski in center and Bob Nussbaumer
in right.
Tallet, a transfer from Notre Dame,
seems to be slated for service on the
initial sack. Tomasi and Kell are
holdovers from last year's champion-
ship aggregate. Don Robinson played
on the 1942 edition of the Wolverine
nine.
Following Wise on a mound was
Bliss "Bo" Bowman. Both these men
pitched well, limiting their opponents
to but a few scattered blows. Ray
Block pitched a creditable stint on
CHAS.

the mound and was relieved in the
seventh by Art Renner.
Renner Yields Runs
Renner was reached for a couple
of runs, but the regulars were well
in the lead at this point in the con-
test. Standout performers for the
regulars were Swanson, Robinson,
Kell and Nussbaumer.
Coach Fisher revealed that he plans
to continue outdoor drills as long as
weather permits and he intends to
give every newcomer a chance to
show what he's got.
Crisler Favors
Michigan State
Big Tem.Entry
Michigan's athletic director and
head football coach, H. O. "Fritz"
Crisler yesterday said that Michigan
State would be an acceptable choice
to replace the recently resigned Uni-
versity of Chicago in the Western
Conference.
"Personally I'd just as soon see
Michigan State College in the Big
Ten. It would bring them under all
Conference rules and regulations."'
The Wolverine coach continued,
"Offhand I cannot think of any ob-
jection to Michigan State being ad-
mitted. This is just speculation, but
traditionally there has been some
feeling that the Conference would be
big enough with nine schools."
Criser said that Michigan State's
application for entry would probably
be considered at the May meeting of
the Big Ten Faculty Member Com-
mittee. The University of Missouri
and Pittsburgh are also interested in
taking the place of Chicago which
announced its resignation on March 8.

Another Yost Field House fresh-
man record was erased from the of-
ficial Michigan track ledger yester-
day, as Charles Fonville heaved the
sixteen pound weight 50 ft. % in., E
thus becoming the only first'year
man in Wolverine history to enter
the elite group of 50 ft. putters
Coach Ken Doherty was highly,
pleased with last evening's perfor-
mance by the Detroit youth, as he
neared the end of preparations for
this week's duel with Bill Bangert
in the Purdue Relays. The match be-,
tween these two giants of the shot:
should be an interesting one, since'
Fonville has been steadily improving
while Bangert has remained at a t a v Transfer

comparative standstill.
Watson Won Watch
Doherty was in a genial mood as
he recounted a story involving Bill
Watson, former frosh record holder
in this event, and Charley Hoyt, ex-
Wolverine cinder coach. It seemed
that Hoyt, fervent in his desire to see
a Michigan man break 50 ft. with the
shot, promised a gold watch to the
first man accomplishing this feat.
"Watson won that promise in his
sophomore year", recalled Doherty.
"I never shall forget going up to the
jewelers with Charley to pick out
that watch. Now I gues we'll have
to figure out something for Fonville,
for this is definitely an excellent dis-
play of athletic prowess".
In the meantime, the remainder
of the track squad continued to round
out a week of strenuous training for
the meet at Purdue. Doherty has en-
tered 22 men in the contest, and as
usual, expects another hair-raising
battle from Illinois.
19 Illini Entered
Coach Leo Johnson has entered 19
Illini, and is in hopes of lowering two
of the existing records. The team
is given a good chance to crack the
3:22.6 mark in the mile relay set last
year by their teammates, and the
Great Lakes 3:25.1 record in the
sprint medley.
However in the light of the time
schedule of these two events. it is
doubtful whether that Illinois can
summon full strength for both races.
There is only a lapse of twenty min-
utes between these events, and bar-
ring a supreme effort from Herb Mc-
Kenley or Marce Gonzales, one of
the two quartets would be weakened
considerably.

Gordon Lost to Yanks
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., March 20
--QP1)-Joe Gordon, veteran second
baseman, will be lost to the New
York Yankees for the next four weeks
and thus probably won't be in the
lineup when the American League
Pennant favorites open the season at
Philadelphia, April 16.
This was disclosed today after an
X-ray examination of the middle fin-
ger of Gordon's left hand which was
spiked by rookie Bob Rhawn in a
game yesterday with the St. Louis
Cardinals.

To Great Lakes
Joe Ponsetto, captain of the 1945
Michigan football team, was trans-1
ferred yesterday from Ann Arbor to
Great Lakes Naval Training Station
by the Navy.
Last year's quarterback was to have
left Ann Arbor at the conclusion of
the fall semester but remained in
town to recover from a knee opera-
tion brought about by a football in-
jury. It will be remembered that Pon-
setto was removed from the Illinois
game with a wrenched knee and re-
mained on the sidelines the remainder
of the season.
Under present eligibility rules Pon-
setto has one more season to play.
Before leaving, the Michigan quarter-
back indicated that he hoped to re-
turn to school in September should
his discharge come through by that
time.

Holds Spectators Spellbound
His second exhibition on the para-j
llel bars and flying rings held the
spectators spellbound when in a ser-
ies of difficult stunts he proved his
right to the national title. The tum-j
Jbling group from Waterman Gym-

entire program, attracting I a r g e
crowds in both the main gymnasium
and the auxiliary gym.
Dean McClusky defeated Ted
Merry in a 6-4, 6-0 match to win
the all-campus tennis singles tour-
nament. McClusky's short chop shots,
very effective on a wooden floor, dis-
concerted Merry who had assumed
the lead in the early stages of the
match. The exhibition doubles match
was called at a 6-6 set score to make
way for other events.

starting at 7:30 p.m. drew the sec-
ond largest audience of the evening
when ten Greek letter teams vied for
exhibition honors in the tank.
