Weather Halts
On Golf Squad
The 36-hole medal event, sched-
uled for today and tomorrow to
determine Michigan's golf repre-
sentatives on the varsity, jayvee,
and freshman squads, has been
postponed until Saturday and
Sunday because of the snow storm
wthich covered the University Golf
Course yesterday.
Bert Katzenmeyer, the new
Wolverine linksmiaster, who re-
turned from the Dixie trip last
week with an impressive 4-2 ree-
ord achieved by his eight leading
candidates, is counting on a 12-
man varsity squad to successfully
defend the Big Nine title. The
jayvee and freshman squads will
be composed of 10 men apiece.
So determined are some of the
aspirants to engage in the intra-
squad 36-hole medal event that
they are willing to step onto the
snow-capped golf course in snow-
shoes and skis," Katzenmeyer
humorously reports.
The Michigan coach also an-
nounced yesterday that a repair
shop at the clubhouse is now open

baseball will report to Coach
Ernie McCoy at the freshman

east end of Ferry Field at 3:30

Center Brieske Returns
To Bolster Line Attack
130 Spring Grid Candidates To Continue
Daily Practice Until Middle of Next Month

Stressing fundamental running
plays, coach Fritz Crisler sent ap-
proximately 130 spring football
candidates through a two and one
half hour grid grind inside Yost
Field House yesterday afternoon.
Delayed by the combined forces
of inclement weather and spring
vacation, the drill will continue
six days a week until the middle
of May. Indoor squad meetings
consisting of lectures and motion
pictures were held during the first
week of April, but it was not until'
Monday of this week that heavy
duty togs were donned for out-
door work.
The Wolverines have been
strengthened by the return of
Jim Brieske, center and lead-
ing scorer last season. Brieske
was' drafted by the newly or-
ganized Baltimore club of the
All-American Football league
but has decided to forego pro-
fessional football,

29 by extra point conversions and
three by a field goal last year,
weighs 200 pounds and is an ex-
perienced center who should help
bolster the middle of Michigan's
With the addition of Brieske,
Crisler can look forward to a
strongly fortified forward wall.

Baseball Drills
Spring training for the Willow
Village Bruins will get into full
swing on Monday, April 21, with
an expected turnout of more than
40 baseballers.
All residents of the village,
either from dorms or apartment
areas, are eligible for the squad
and any man who is interested is
invitedto attend the organiza-
tional meeting tonight at 7 p.m.
in the West Lodge gymnasium. A
schedule is being drawn up at the
present time consisting of oppo-

the road.
Jerry VanGasse will serve in the
managerial capacity and be in

sions until a successor, is appoint-

Coach Fisher
Is Surprised
At Home Win
Unexpected Slugging
Stops Fighting Irish
Michigan's far f'r o m expert
baseball team surprised everyone,
especially Coach R a y Fisher,
Tuesday when it managed to out-
slug and narrowly beat a credible
Irish nine which Fisher wagers
will "win a lot of ball games this
If the Wolverine pitching main-
stay, Cliff Wise, hadn't lost his
stuff unexpectedly in the hectic
eighth inning, the victory would
not have been so surprising. When
Wise was holding his own it was
Michigan's ball game, but with an
8 to 5 lead to overcome the weak-
er Wolverine outfit looked doomed.
Wise had been secretly ailing
for the past few days and just
couldn't last through the cold
wind which accompanied the late
innings of the contest. The cold
may also explain why the well-
reputed Notre Dame hurlers were
ineffective against the heretofore
unimpressive Wolverine batters.
All in all it was a slugger's day,
with plenty of hard hit balls. The
two teams together piled up 22
hits including homers by Chuck
Mayo and Jack Weisenburger.
In the field it was a different
story for Fisher's boys as they
were still making too many mis-
takes. According to the Wolverine
coach, the team they beat Tues-
day looked top notch except in
That's more than he could say
for most of the Southern nines
that were able to stop the Maize
and Blue last week. Michigan
didn't face a single impressive
flinger on its tour and the North
Carolina and Duke teams were the
only ones that looked good afield.
Provided the weather man does
another quick about face and pro-
vides some playable weather for
this weekend, Fisher expects to
do some experimenting with his
pitching staff in the two sched-
uled games against a better-than-
usual Wayne nine. He plans to
use six hurlers in the series, in-
cluding a couple of freshman, Bob
Fancett, and Bob Hicks, both of
whom have shown considerable
promise but lack experience.
Ozzie Cowles, Benny Ooster-
baan, and Ernie McCoy will be
guest speakers at the Phys. Ed.
Club meeting tonight.

Top Schoolboy
Track Stars
In Meet Here
More than 1100 schoolboy track-
sters representing 80 Michigan
high schools will converge on Yost
Field House this Saturday for the
eighth annual running of the Riv-
er Rouge Relays.
The huge entry list, the larg-
est in the history of the event.
will place the relays among the
outstanding high school indoor
track carnivals in the country.
Arthur Hill Defends Title
Saginaw Arthur Hill will be de-
fending its team championship
which it garnered last year when
it edged out Saginaw Eastern by
the bare margin of two points. The
meet winners are generally ac-
cepted as the Michigan high
school indoor track champions.
The entries this year will be di-
vided into three classes of com-
petition, based on the official state
classifcation system. The two top
classes, A and B, will run individ-
ually this year while the lower
brackets, classes C and D will run
together as a unit.
MacDonald Originates Meet
The River Rouge invitational
Relays were initiated in 1938 by
Coach McDonald of River Rouge
High to satisfy the need of bring-
ing together in a single indoor
meet all the outstanding thin-
clads of the state. He secured the
cooperation of the University
coaching staff and held the first
meet in Yost Field House.
Fifteen schools participated in
the first running and since then it
has grown to become the largest
indoor meet in the state.
Canham to Supervise
The meet this year will be under
the supervision of Assistant Track
Coach Don Canham who will en-
counter the extremely difficult
problem of organizing the large
number of entries. It will be
necessary to r'un off 94 prelimin-
ary heats as eliminations in de-
termining the finalists.
