MAN inWIctkon


Haves vs. Have Nots


P IS AFTERNOON in Chicago, the 16 owners of the Major League
baseball teams will meet. Thursday, the Senate starts its hearings
on a bill proposed by Senator Kefauver that would limit the control
the major league teams have over their players.
And since a number of baseball officials have been invited to
appear before the antitrust committee, it is not unlikely that a great
deal of the time at this meeting will be devoted to discussion of how
the invited officials-and baseball-will defend the present system.
The Kefauver bill that will come under consideration is designed
to limit the farm operations of Major League teams and make the
talent-laden ones spread their goodies around. This bill would limit to
100 the number of players any club might control. Of that 100, all
but 40 would be subject each year to a draft by all other clubs (iclud-
ing the new Continental League).
The "beseball men gathered in the Windy City 'are expected to
come out of their meeting ready to jump into the fray with both feet.
The big objections raised by the Major League teams are that the
bill would kill the minor leagues, stifle incentive and reduce the quality
of play. Led by Commissioner Ford Frick, the teams deny Kefauver's
claim that they are hoarding players.
DESPITE THE CLAIMS of the club owners, it seems entirely possible
that this legislation is something that is needed in the Major
Leagues. Kefauver, a long-time foe of monopoly, has probably become
irritated by the same thing that has bothered many baseball fans of
recent years-the sight of "the rich get richer and the poor get poorer."
The Yankees win the pennant every year (almost) and the Senators
get involved in 17-game losing streaks and end up in the cellar every
year (almost).
Baseball's top brass yelp everytime attendance drops but they
have never done anything to remedy the situation. Before fans get
upset at supposed legislative interference in the national game, they
should realize that a very real problem exists and that this might be
a cure. The franchise switches in recent years of the Philadelphia
Athletics, St. Louis Browns, Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants
(the names sound strange already) were caused by basic economics.
The Browns and Athletics especially couldn't field teams that would
consistently rank in the first division. Fans don't pay to see losers.
Ergo, the franchises were moved.
Especially in the face of the new Continental League competition,
the present Major Leagues are going to have to even up to maintain
interest. If they won't do it themselves, perhaps something like the
Kefauver proposal is needed. While on the face of it, it sounds like
something out of Robin Hood-"take from the rich and give to the
poor"-it may be needed for the very existence of ALL the clubs in-
volved, rich or poor.
Probably the most cogent arguement advanced by the baseball
men is that the minor league system would be seriously impaired. This
is undoubtedly true, since no club will pour money into a system from
which it can only keep a handful of players.
But it is just as obvious that at least the top minors will be able
to withstand it, and at the rate that the Class C and D clubs are being
dropped from farm systems because of their cost, it is doubtful that
these have much future anyway.
Professional football is operating without a farm setup and its
fans, breaking down the gates for new attendance records every year,
don't seem to feel that the quality of play is impaired.
The Kefauver bill could hurt the minors, but it might arouse new
enthusiasm for the Major Leagues if it resulted in a spread of talent
through the system.
Who knows, mybe Washington could even win its first pennant
since 1924. If that didn't stir up interest-nothing would.

Honors Go
To Crisler.
Three Michigan greats were
added to the Michigan Sports Hall
of Fame yesterday, including H. O.
Fritz Crisler, Adolph "Germany"
Schultz, and George Sisler.
Each year at this time the
names of the newly elected mem-
bers are revealed to coincide with
Michigan Week activities. The
total of those honored has now
been raised to 30, nine of whom
are former Michigan immortals.
Crisler, Michigan athletic di-
rector, is recognized as one of the
foremost football authorities in
the sport's history. He coached the
Wolverines to a Big. Ten cham-
pionship in 1943 and 1947, as well
as the '48 Rose Bowl team which
beat USC 49-0. His overall record
was 71 wins, 16 losses and three
ties when he surrendered his
coaching duties to replace Field-
ing H. Yost as athletic director of
Michigan, the post he still holds.
Schultz was named as the center
on the Associated Press All-Time
All-American team in 1951. He
played for the great "point-a-min-
ute" teams at Michigan in 1904-
Sisler began his illustrious base-
ball career at Michigan, playing
for Branch Rickey from 1913 to
1915. He followed his coach to
the St. Louis Browns the next
season, and played with them from
1915-1927, and ended his career
in 1930 with the Boston Braves
with a lifetime batting average of
.340, having had two seasons
where he managed to top the .400
Others selected to the Hall of
Fame were "Dad" Butler, famed
track coach of Detroit; Horton
Smith, the great golfer of the
1920s and '30s, and "Wish" Egan
Detroit Tiger baseball scout dur-
ing the past fifty years.

"Many times a bridesmaid but
never a bride," may be a good
way to describe Michigan golfer
John Everhardus who came into
his own Saturday at Michigan
State with a fine 73, the low
Michigan score of the day.
However, his mark was only.
good for a second place tie in the
morning round as Michigan
State's C. A. Smith and had a 71
on the way to medalist honors.
Jack Rule of Iowa, former Na-
tional Junior Champ, also had 73.
Starred for Ann Arbor
As a prepster playing for Ann
Arbor High School, he was second
in the Regional at Brighton both
his junior and senior years. He
led Ann Arbor to the state cham-
pionshrip in the latter year by
copping, third place, after taking
fifth as a junior. Ironically, the
same Smith who beat him Satur-
day was the titlist in,1957.
To keep the triangle going be-
tween Everhardus, Smith, and
Rule, the latter beat Smith two
years ago to win the Junior title.
All three will see action in the
Big Ten meet this weekend at East
Lansing, but Rule will play here
today as Iowa and Michigan lock
horns in a 36-hole medal play
Needed Balance
Everhardus naturally hopes that
he can continue his fine play to-
day, and throughout the Confer-
ence Meet. As Michigan's sixth
man, he may supply that needed
balance sought by Coach Bert
Katzenmeyer had ' singled out
Everhardus last spring as likely
to come through this year, and the
Wolverine junior proved his coach
a prophet last Saturday.
Everhardus, a big, strong player
who hits the ball a mile, has been
affectionately nicknamed "The
Rhino" byhis teammates because
of his physical appearance. Along
with teammates Joe Brisson, Lar-
ry Markman and Dick Youngberg,
he probably rates as one of the
longest hitters in the Confer-
These four, plus Tom Wilson
and Bill Newcomb will be match-
ing shots with Iowa's touring
Hawkeyes today. Iowa took the
Wolverines' measure Saturday to
the tune of 23-13.
Experimental Meet
Today's all medal meet is an
experiment by the two coaches.
Heretofore, all matches were on
a man to man nausau scoring
basis. Since the Conference is on
a medal basis, today's warmup
meet should give valuable experi-
ence to both teams in that re-
spect. However, all six scores will
count, and not just five, as in
Conference play.


... adds balance
/Iajor League

Following a successful weekend
in Conference competition, Michi-
gan's baseball team will have re-
venge oneits mind this afternoon
when they meet Western Michi-
gan at Ferry Field at 3:30, in the
final home game of the year.
In the only other meeting of
the two schools at Kalamazoo last
month the Broncos slugged three
Wolverine pitchers for eight runs
in the first five innings and then
hung on to post an 8-6 win.
Today Coach Don Lund will
send sophomore John Kerr to
the hill to face the Broncos. The
young lefthander has been used
sparingly this spring having pit-
ched only 211/3 innings and will
be seeking his first victory as a
Michigan hurler.
Western, one of the perennial
powers of, the middle-west in col-
legiate baseball circles has been
having trouble winning this year.
Following the Western game
Michigan. takes. Wednesday. off
and then concludes the season
with a game at Notre Dame on
Thursday, another at Northwest-
ern Friday, and will close with a
twin bill at Wisconsin Saturday.
