Pirates Knew
I Would Quit
Hank Reveals
Slugger May Prolong
Active Playing Career
NEW YORK, Feb. 11 -(P)-
Hank Greenberg, perturbed by re-
action of Pittsburgh fans to his
statement that he was consider-
ing retirin'r, revealed today he had
informed the Pirates in his first
contact with the club that he
would not play with the National
League team.
In an exclusive interview, the
former Detroit slugger, who was
waived ont of the American
League and sold to the Pirates
Jan. 18, said that he had with-
held public announcement of his
decision at the express request of
the Pittsburgh management which
asked him "to reconsider" the
Pirate Fans Concerned
Hank said, "I am greatly dis-
tressed by the report that the
Pittsburgh fans are angry at me.
I want the Pittsburgh fans to
know that the first time I con-
tacted the Pittsburgh manage-
ment I revealed my decision.
"At the Pirates' request, I re-
frained from making any an-
nouncement until I had given it
further consideration," Greenberg
said. "I gave the matter a great
deal of thought," he added, "but
decided to stick to my original de-
"I want to say now that I have
the highest regard for the Pitts-
burgh management and I don't
want to do anything to antagonize
our relationship, whether I ever
play for Pittsburgh or not."
Still Considering Playing
The 36-year-old veteran, who
led the American loop in runs bat-
ted in with 127 as well as in hom-
ers with 44, said he had not defi-
nitely retired as a player.

Track Squad
Off to Coast
To Opose Caifarnia
Bears This Spring
After a ten year lapse. Michi-
gan's track team will once again
journey to the Pacific Coast to
renew their dual meet rivalry with
the University of California.
During the spring vacation,
Coach Ken Doherty will take 22
thinclads to the coast for the
meet April 12. The trackmen will
work out in Los Angeles for a fe,
days and then move up to Be k
eley for the meet..
Bears Boast Balanced Squad
The Californians have a well
balanced team this year with more
than their share of talent in the
dashes and the broad jump, high
jump and pole vault. Don Ander-
son of the Bears has posted clock-
ings of 9.7 in the 100-yard dash
and 21.6 for the 220.
California's Tom Hartzell leads
the Bears'. middle distance run-
ners by virtue of a 4:22 mile ef-
fort and a 1:57 880. Hartzell isi

lads capable of coming in undert
'two minutes for the half-mile.
Tough Fight Expected in 440
Michigan's leading quarter-mil-t
ers, Hugh Short, Dick Forrestel,
and George Shepherd will findt
stiff competition in the 440 since
the Bears have four men who cant
churn around the oval in less,
than :50. In the field events,c
California's Charlie Hanger has
cleared the high jump bar at 6c
ft., 5'1/ in.
Wolverines Seek Javelin PitcherI
One of Coach Doherty's prob-1
lems is to find a javelin thrower4
before April. The javelin throw ist
not a scheduled event in the West-t
ern Conference but it will be in-
cluded on the dual meet program
at Berkeley.
California is the only team to
hold a winning record against the
Wolverine trackmen, having come
out on the long end of the score
two of the three times the schools
have met. Michigan suffered twot
straight setbacks in 1924 and 1935
before the thinclads came through
with a resounding 32 point victory
over the Bears in 1937.
Doherty hopes that the renewalc
of the track rivalry between Mich-
igan and California will result
in regular meetings of the twoS
schools on the cinder paths.
Three of the coaches now tutoring
Big Nine cage suads were members of t
the same All-Conference team. Brancht
McCracken of Indiana and "Bud" Fos-
ter of wisconsm were the forwards on
the "Dream" tean of 1930,t andDoug
Mills of lllinois was one of the guards. 1

For 18 seconds last Monday
night Boyd McCaslin was the hero
of what looked like another upset
in the unpredictable Big Nine title
chase, but Exner Menxel's two
free throws which gave Wisconsin

Wolverine forward into a"forgot

McCaslin's Stunt Shines
Vain as it proved to be, Mc-
Caslin's ball stealing trick at the
expense of ex-'Wolverine, Geln
Selbo, should rate as one of the
plays of the year. Twenty seconds
before the final gun, McCaslin
corkscrewed the ball away from

Selbo and then outfooted the
Badger guard to lay up the basket
that put Michigan ahead.
Selbo didn't take any time to
kick himself after his boner and
that was the ball ,ame. He
whipped a long pass down the
court and the Badgers cut loose
with three shots. Bob Cook took
two shots, then Menzel got the
ball and cut loose from well out.
The referee ruled that Pete Elliott
had fouled him. No one seemed to
be quite clear as to what foul El-
liott had committed, which may
only indicate that the officials

were the only ones still c
enough to notice.
Rehfelt Key Man for Badgers
A key figure in the Badger
tory was substitute center,
Rehfelt, who became eligible
semester. The lanky Wisco
pivot man handled the key
in the intricate Foster offense

Young .denied
Amateur Rank
NEW YORK, Feb. 11 --('')-Dan
Ferris, executive secretary of the
AAU, said today that B u d d y
Young, University of Illinois
sprinter, automatically became in-
eligible for amateur competition
by announcing his intentions of
playing in an All-Star football
game for which he would receive
Ferris said he had received a
request from the Central AAU,
which controls the Association's
affairs in Ilinois, for a ruling on
the Young case and answered by
quoting the rule which makes an
offending athlete automatically
He added that the rule provides
that if the athlete abstains from
collecting the money, he may be
reinstated after one year. Ferris
said Young received only expense
money for his appearance at Los
Angeles when the football game
of which heavyweight champion
Joe Louis was one backer, was
"If Young waits the year he will
have plenty of time to get in shape
for the Olympics," Ferris pointed
out, "because he will be eligible
again about Jan. 10, 1948, and the
Olympic trials will be sometime
late that Spring"
The ball will begin rolling liter-
ally today for this semester's In-
tramural program as the All-
Campus Bowling Tournament gets
Underway on the Union alleys.
A field of 40 bowlers have been
attracted to this event which will
continue throughout the week.
Two out of three games must be
won in order for any contender to
advance to the finals. Seeded
number o e is Tom Reader, while
Bob WViider'man is in the number
two slot. Jim Bezverleov, slated
number three, has already been
eliminated by Ed Rosinsky.
Taking lip where they left off
last term, the Fraternity and Res-
idence Halls basketball squads oc-
cupied the I-M spotlight in the
current rouid of play.
