A powerful and determined Physi-
cal Ed team rose up in in'dignation
yesterday at being called the under-
dog of the International League and
upset more plans than a heavy rain
on Memorial day.
All was prepared for a playoff game
between the undefeated Tappan Red
team of the International League
and the Tiger team of the American
League--but that was before the
Physical Eds set off their bombshell
and blasted the Red team into a tie
with them for first place by hand-
ing them a 13-1 trouncing. Now it's
the Physical Eds who are the team
which is favored to represent the In-
ternational League in the University
"World Series," but first they must
beat the Tappan Reds in the final
playoff game next Thursday.
The winner of the game will play
the winner of the game between the
Prof team managed by Richard;
Bandlow, who is the Joe McCarthy
of the American League, and the Tig-1
ers which will also be played on
Thursday afternoon. The two vic-
torious teams will then finish off the;
afternoon by playing a final game to
decide the University "World Cham-
In the game that disrupted the
Tappan Red supremacy,, of the In-
ternational League, Farnham, Physi-
cal Ed pitcher, allowed five scattered
hits, one of them a triple by Loomis,
Red outfielder, in the first inning
which produced his teams lone talley.
A big second inning virtually
clinched the victory for the Educa-
tion team as 14 men relentlessly wel-
coined the offerings of Bowsher and
scored 10 runs from four walks and
seven hits.
The lowly Tappan Blues fought
hard and long to b)eat the Browns
and win their first game of the sea-
son but all was in vain as the Browns
scored two runs in the sixth inning to
gain a 10-9 decision. Batteries were
Klemach and Olsen for the winners,
Smith and Meyer for the losers.
Theta Xi, the fraternity team of
the league caught the Michigan Daily
team in a lax moment and pushed a
run across in the seventh inning to
give them a 6-5 victory. Or shall we
blame the umpire?
The Tigers remained undefeated in

the National League through a 9-1
victory over the Ten Old Men, dark-
horse team of the league in their
three previous games. The win
marked the eighth victory for pitch-
er Bill Poppink of the Tiger and made
his team favored to win the playoff
The Eskimos hit freely off the
pitches of Larkin of the Super Du-
pers and left the field with a 7-1 vic-
In the final game the Red Sox
team decided to give up their "World
'Series" hopes and forfeited to the
Wolverines. The Sox team has en-
joyed a very successful season, hav-
ing won one game and scored several
"moral" victories during the year's

NEW YORK, Aug. 1.- (P) -The

fight definitely was "on" again to-
night with the possibility of a fall

It all started when the boys in the
back room read the papers and saw
that piece about how some people in
Michigan thought things had reached
a pretty pass what with no Barber
Shop Quartets any more, and had
gone right out and started themselves
a Society for the Preservation and
Encouragement of the Barber Shop
Quartet in America.
"Hmph," hmphed Domenic.
"Pooh." poohed Bert.
"Tsh," 'tshed Don.
"A fine thing," muttered Roy, who
has a gift for the cutting phrase.
"Not a barber in the lot," Domenic
mused. "As you said, Roy, a fine
thing. A very fine thing. Saving
Barber Shop quartets and no Bar-
bers in the bunch. Isn't there a union

deed. The Barbei's' organization is

The new organization, founded by
Domenic Dascola, proprieter of the
Esquire Barbershop and a Michigan
graduate, will specialize on "Down
by the Old Mill Stream," "Sweet Ade-
line," "Old Oaken Bucket" and "The
Barber of Seville."
Its membership will include four
men who can clip a high note as
facily as a shaggy lock-Bert Brown,
a tenor who for seven years has been
in the Choral Union and who, as a
boy prodigy in England, sang before
Queen Victoria at the age of 15; Roy
Mehaffey, alto; Don Rogers, familiar-
ly known as "Froger" and a soprano;
