Perfect Infield Play
TOLEDO, O., June 2.-(Special to
the Daily)-Big John Gee climaxed a
brilliant collegiate career tonight as
he paced Michigan's baseball team to
a 12 to 2 victory over Toledo Univer-
sity under the floodlights of Swayne
Field, home of Toledo's Mudhens.
Gee, who pitched a no-hit game in
his last start, against Hillsdale, was
uncorking his fast one again tonight
and he had the Rockets at his mercy,
sending 21 back to the dugout on
strikeouts. The Rockets could collect
but three hits off the dark-ball offer-
ings of the elongated Wolverine
While Gee was setting the Rockets
on their heels, the Wolverine batsmen
displayed no ill effects from the
strange playing conditions. The Wol-
verines combed two Toledo pitchers,
Red Smith and Howard Camp, for
ten hits, combining them effectively
with four Rocket errors.
Michigan's runs, except in the
fourth inning, came in clusters as the
Wolverines scored two in the second,
three in the fifth, two in the eighth
and then polished off the contest with
four in the ninth.
The Wolverine infield gave Gee
perfectnsupport, settingdown seven
batsmen without an error.
Charley Cupp, Rocket first base-
man, was the siege gun of the Toledo
attack. In the fourth inning Cupp
tripled and stole home and then in
the ninth singled, stole second and
third, and scored on an infield out.
The Wolverine victory ended Mich-
igan's 1937 season in which they
failed to retain Western Conference
honors,, and gave Coach Fisher's team
a season's record of ten wins and nine

Gehrig has participated in 1,843
consecutive American League games
since he began his string on June 1,
1925. On that day he was sent in as
a pinch-hitter for Shortstop Pee Wee
Wanninger and delivered. The next
day Manager Miller Huggins benched
Wally Pipp, the regular first sacker,
and replaced him with Gehrig. Lou
has been on the job ever since.

Dean Dropped
From League
By Ford Frick
NEW YORK, June 2.-(A)-Jerome
Herman (Dizzy) Dean, suspended in-
definitely today by President Ford C.
Frick of the National League "for
conduct detrimental to the best in-
terests of baseball"-specifically "too
much popping off-must sign an
apology on the dotted line before be-1
ing restored to good standing.
"It's now strictly up to Dean as to
whether his suspension lasts for 24
hours or three months," Frick de-
clared after disclosing that an ac-
cumulation of statements, attributed
to the ace pitcher of the St. Louis
Cardinals, reflected too pointedly up-
on League officials and umpires.
The show-down will come tomor-
row at 10 a.m. (EST) when Dean,
accompanied by Frank Frisch, man-
ager of the Cardinals, is scheduled
for a conference with Frick in the
National League offices.
"It's got down to a question of
whether Dean is bigger than the Na-
tional League," said Frick. "I don't
think he is. This can all be settled
quickly if Dean sees the error of his
ways, frankly apologizes to the League
for the things he has said or implied,
and puts it in writing."

Tebbets Raps Out homer
I o Score Three Runs And
Break Up Game
DETROIT, June 2.--(/P)-George
Tebbetts, Detroit catcher replacing
the injured Mickey Cochrane, broke
up a weird 11-inning baseball game
today with a home run over the left
field wall, scoring two mates ahead
.f him to give the Tigers a victory
over Washington, 11 to 8, in the
first game of their series.
The Senators batted Roxie Law-
son, Detroit pitching ace, hard in
the three innings he pitched, and aid-
ed by six misplays by the Tiger in-
field, piled up a 7-0 lead. Buddy
Lewis accounted for one run with his
fourth-inning homer.
Detroit broke the scoring ice in the
fifth and tied the count in the seventh
when Goose Goslin blasted one of
Ed Linke's pitches into the right field
stands with the bases full.
Jack Russell, who relieved George
Coffman on the Detroit mound after
Washington scored one run in the
first half of the eleventh, forced Al
Simmons and Joe Kuehel to pop out,
and received credit for the victory.
Loule Newsom, who started the
game for Washington, was batted out
in the seventh. Syd Cohen and Joe
Cascarella finished.
Gerald Walker, hit on the wrist by
a pitched ball in the first inning,
stayed in the game and led the Tig-
ers at bat with two doubles and two
singles in five official trips to the
plate. Jonathan Stone with four
singles in six times at bat led the
Herman (Flea) Clifton, recalled
from Toledo to fill in for the crippled
Charley Gehringer at second base,

Detroit errors. Gehringer appeared
in the game as a pinch-hitter for Clif-
ton in the eleventh and was passed
purposely. Elden Auker ran for him
and scored on Tebbetts' homer.
dreamed of coming and following his
footsteps when he was still in high
school and when he heard of the high
standing of the physical education
school here and Coach Charlie Hoyt's
famed reputation, he decided to make
that dream an actuality.
He's majoring in physical educa-
tion now and his greatest ambition it
to land a good job as a coach or in
Y.M.C.A. work.
He likes to practice as well as he
does to compete in a big meet, he
said and Captain Bob Osgood bore
him out in this. He joins the Garbo
ranks in liking to be alone every
now and then and wears conservative
neckties-in fact, is very conservative
in almost everything and a "swell fel-
lah"--a champion of the first order.

Clothes of Quality

and rDistinction

for either of the titles are of the .dark-
horse variety. Second by eight
strokes to Northwestern in the Big
Ten Meet, the Varsity may come
through only if all members of the
squad play that golf of which they
are most capable, and at the same
time. Best prospect for the individual
crown is Bill Barclay as the result of
his showing in the National Open
qualifying trials in Detroit Tues-
day. Bill is a money player, at his
best when the going is rough. He
went to the quarter-finals of the 1936
Collegiate Meet.
The smart money will be down on
two young men who reached the
semi-finals of the tournament last
year. Willy Turnesa, of Holy Cross,
pushed Kocsis to an extra hole before
bowing to him. Freddy Haas, ,L.S.U.
sharpshooter, is picked as his oppon-
ent in the finals.

lege may enter a six-man squad, thel

day he jumped over his head-6 feet

The hard-fighting Buckeyes are the

anything that has to do with athletics
and besides track likes to swim, play

school (Saginaw High called him
"champ") he was a three-letter man

ball as well as track and never miss-
ing a game or meet.
