aize andfBlue Golfers Gain Decisive

Win Over Ohio


Two tennis teams of unknown
strength will do battle on the Ohio
SStatecourts at Columbus tomorrow
afternoon when the Wolverines in-
vade the Buckeye town to open the
Western Conference tennis sched-
ule. Both teams have met weaker
opponents during the pre-season
engagements, but the r e I a t i v e

Brown Catcher Placed Teamworkt
.Over Brotherly Love; Ball j
Was Scored as Error.
CHICAGO, May 2. - (P) - "Just
another time at bat," was Rick Fer-
roll's effort at the plate in the
eighth inning of a memorable game
at Cleveland the other day.
Yet, though "AB's" are the bane
of a ball player's existence, Rick i
is pleased that the official scorer
called this particular effort just a ;
time at bat, with no credit for a
base hit, despite the fact he arrived,
safe at frt
tid Brother Pitches.
Rick's kid brother, Wes, stellar
hurler of the Cleveland Indians,
was pitching that day, and theE
team for which Rick is catcher, the
St. Louis Browns, had failed to i
scratch anything resembling a
base-knock off his speedy delivery
in seven and two-thirds innings.
With two out in the eighth, Wes

hurling achievement-a no-hit, no- i
run game-and the Indians nine
runs to the good, Brother Rick
strode to the plate.
"I didn't want abase hit," says
Rick, recounting the incident," but
I had to get up there and try my
best. Even if ithadn't been my
brother, I'd rather not get a base
hit at that stage o' the game. Ball
players are like that-most of 'em.
They know they got all summer toI
get those base knocks, but a no-hit
game-well, they only come once
in a lifetime.
Doing His Best.I
"Anyway, I was up there, doing
my best to knock my kid brother
off his perch in the Hall of Fame.
Wes didn't say nothin' but I knew
he was goin' to bear down plenty,
and he's never been any easier for
me to hit than any other pitcher,
"First he brushed over a curve
ball for a strike. The next pitch,
another curve, was outside for ball
one. Then he turned on the steam
for three fast ones in a row-a
strike, another ball, making it two-
and-two, then I got hold of a
shoulder-high fast one and lit out
for first base.
Safe on Error.
"It was like runnin' in a dream,
only the other way around. In a
dream you run all your might and

don't go anywhere. I didn't feel like
running fast at all, yet I just about
flew down to first. It was a pretty
well hit ball, but Hunnefield came
up wvith it and gunned it over to
first.IIs peg was a li tle wideand
pulled Fonseca off the bag, and I
was safe.
"'Wes walked over' a few steps
from the mound and says, 'You±
wouldn't take that'n, wouldya,
Rick?' He was smilin', but I bet he
felt kinda choky about it, at that,
because they first posted it as a hit.
Then they decided it was a bum
throw instead.
Likes to Hit.
"I love my bingles just as much
as the next ball player," Rick con-
cluded, "but there's one time 'just
another time at bat' didn't make
me mad."
Kid brother Wesley, as everyone
knows, went on to attain his no-hit

HOUSTON, Tex., May 2. -(P)-
Pitcher Dizzy Dean, of the St. Louis
Cardinals, will be sent immediately,
to Houston, of the Texas League, a
Cardinal farm, President Fred An-
kenman, of the Houston club, an-
nounced today.
Ankenman said he was advised
Dean would be here in time to
pitch in tomorrow's game.
"Dean told Branch Rickey, of the
Cardinals, he would come here only
on that condition -so he could
demonstrate to local fans he still
is a good pitcher," Ankenman said'.
"Rickey said Dean still was the
best pitcher on his staff, but want-
ed to send him here because Joe
Schultz (Houston manager) knows
how to handle him."

Strong Winds Make Good Golf
Practically Impossible as
Wolves Win, 131%2-4%.
With cold raw winds sweepin
over the fairways, making good golf
a practical impossibility, the Maize
and Blue golfers decisively defeat-
ed Ohio State yesterday. Although
the final score gave the Wolverines
a 13 1/2 to 4 1/2 margin of victory,
this does not give a true reprv-
sentation of the closeness of the
individual matches. The eighteeiit.n
green was the scene of most of
yesterday's dramatic moments.
In the morning foursomes the
Wolverines gained a 4--2 margin
Howard and Lenfesty halved both
nines and the match with Wilson
and Kepler, although the Michigan
combination had it in the bag un-
til the final moment. Howard who
was having considerable difficulty
with his putts climaxed a bad day
on the greens by three putting the
final green which enabled the Buck-
eyes to square things up. Kepler
carried the brunt of the burden for
the visitors scoring a 78, while his
partner was using 84 strokes to
complete his round. Howard's 78
was also the best ball for his side.
Royston, Livingston Win.
Royston and Livingston worked
together nicely to add 2z .points to
the Wolverine total. Florio, the
Ohio Amateur Champion, played
excellently, but received little help
from his partner.
The feature match of the day
was the afternoon singles match
between Lenfesty and Kepler. Time
and again the Wolverine star threw
away opportunities to win holes by
erratic work on the greens, but his
putter vindicated itself for its pre-
vious errors on the home green, by
sending a 25-foot putt straight and
true into the bottom of the hole for
a birdie four, enabling its owner to
