0 King-Seeley First For Nine . .

University of Michigan baseball
tean will officially open its sum-
mer schedule Tuesday when they
face a fast-moving King-Steley nine
on the Ferry Field diamond. The
game will start at 6:30 p.m. and is
open to the public without charge.
King-Seeley, which took its
tenth straight win Tuesday night,
will probably be too much for
Coach Ray Fisher's newly gath-
ered squad. The Industrial nine
is a heavy hitting outfit with some
pitching that is up to minor
league standards.
VND JOE ROGERS and Varsity
center Bob Ingalls will enter the
Coast Guard shortly for war duty.
Both the boys have been hav-
ing trouble placing themselves in
the various branches of the armed
forces because of physical handi-
caps. Ingalls has rather bad eye-
sight while Rogers is just recovering
from a leg injury he received during
the last football season.
Ingalls is still in Ann Arbor but
will leave Friday for Manhattan
Beach, N.Y., ,to join Rogers who has
already left for the training center.
LL-AMERICAN Bob Westfall will
probably play for the Army's
team at Keesler Field, Biloxi, Miss.
this fall. Along with Bullet Bob will
come Pittsburgh's great Izzy Wein-
This will come as quite a sur-
prise to Coaches Harry Mehre and
Allyn 1cKeen of Mississippi and
Mississippi State respectively. Both

i of these wise owls placed the Kees-
leir Field team on their schedules
as a breather. The game may be
a breather-but for whom?

9PHE FIRST Wolverine squadron
of the United States Navy will
start training next Wednesday in
Iowa City, Ia. Heading the Michi-
gan contingent will be speedy Dave
Nelson of football and baseball fame.
Along with Nelson will be big Paul
Goldsmith, John Bachman and about
15 others.
On hand to greet them when
they arrive will be Harlan Frau-
mann and Bob (Flop) Flora, ex-
Wolverine grid stars. Both of
these burly lads now direct a
part of the,' Iowa training sta-
tion's hguge athletic 'program.
AN INCOMPLETE report on the
Hale America golf tourneys
staged throughout the country on
Memorial Day shows that 432 of
these competitions raised $25,571.35
for the Red Cross War Fund. There
are still 368 clubs to be heard from.
Hundreds of American soldiers
are playing soft ball this summer
on the rock-studded fields of Ice-
land before the puzzled eyes of the
Icelanders and the British. More
than 10 leagues have been formed
already under the direction of the
base athletic office.
FLASH: Betsy Barbour girls have
been dumping cigarette ashes in
plants that lined the landings of the
dormitory. Fortunately the proper
authorities have noticed the situa-
tion and at a recent meeting the
Barbour girls were, reprimanded for
this grave misdemeanor.
In times of National emergency
such as niow, we wonder why these
girls don't remember that we must
pull 'together in the war effort.
All must do their part to keep the
wheels of a well coordinated life
rolling. To the Betsy Barbour
girls we say . . . shame.

From the Western drawl country,
where women are men. comes Clai-
bel Baird, actor and director, for her
sixth se~son with the Michigan Rep-
eratory Players.
On the faculty of the Oklahoma
College for Women, Mrs. Baird is
faced with the difficult task of
coaching members of her all-girr
cast to act-convincingly-as men.
And critics say that the finished
Baird production is no burlesquing
JGP girl-masquerading-as-boy set-
up. Local theatre audiences have ac-
cepted the skillful masculine inter-
pretations and are able to lose them-
selves completely in the plays, as
much as if they were dramatized by
mixed casts.
"Mostsof the costume plays lend
themselves nicely to the scheme,"
Mrs. Baird explains. "Light roman-
tic plays and comedies-we've given
nearly all of Shakespeare's" are the
ideal vehicles for feminine interpre-
tation of male roles, according to
Mrs. Baird.
"It takes long weeks of extra re-
hearsal to learn to act like a man,"
Mrs. Baird contends. Every move-
ment he makes must be studied to
achieve complete naturalness. "For
instance," the gracious brown-haired
director illustrates, "a man swings
from the hips in ;walking, while a
woman walks from the knees down.
Again, a man sits down with his legs
apart, a gesture completely foreign
to a woman."
The Oklahoma Thespians have
turned out some master productions
in utilizing the Baird formula, in-
cluding "Peer Gynt" and "Letters
to Lucerne," the latter being a new
story of World War II, which Mrs.
Baird will again direct, this time for
the Mendelssohn Theatre perform-
ance on July 29.
The secret of successful directing?
