DiMaggio Ends Holdout; Dean
Wins; Feller Hurls One-Hitter




Unbeaten Hoytmen Open Outdoor
Season At Quadrangular Relays

NEW YORK, April 20.-(P) -Back
to the New York Yankees when they
need him most comes Jolting Joe Di-
Maggio, the San Francisco outfield-
er who accepted today the club's sal-
ary offer of $25,000 after a holdout
siege that would have lasted three
months tomorrow.
DiMaggio ended his holdout with a
terse telegram to Business Manager
Edward G. Barrow and tonight was
speeding to join the club he sparked
to American League pennants and
world championships in 1936 and
1937. The staggering Yankees need
him. They have won only one of
three games and their hitting has
been puny.
DiMaggio capitulated at the terms
offered by the Yankees with no prom-
ises of a bonus for a good season. Both
Barrow and Colonel Jacob Ruppert,
owner of the club, were insistent on
this point.
"His salary is $25,000, no more, no
less," said Ruppert, who added he was
"very glad that the young man has

The three, K. S. Duncan, P. Ward,

Duncan is the Oxonian.as well as
captain of the.-team and a good
broad jumper and sprinter;as well.

CINCINNATI, April 20.- (AP) -
Jerome Herman (Dizzy) Dean's de-
but as a Chicago Cub was just a six-
inning arm-loosening chore for the
former St. Louis

second frame.
It was the second
straight win for
Chicago over the
Redlegs, who fin-r
ishes last in the 1937 campaign.
Dean, after pounding out a single
to score Lazzeri in the Big second, and
then scoring from first on Jurges'
double against the right field wall,
was taken out at the end of the sixth.

that made him the American League's
strikeout champion, shut out the St.
Louis Browns with a single hit today
while Cleveland's artillery swung into
action to win 9-0.
The lanky, 19-year-old Iowan
struck out six Browns, walked an
equal number, made two of the In-
dians' 11 hits and drove in two runs.
CHICAGO, April 20.-(AP)-The
Chicago White Sox nosed out the De-
troit Tigers today, 5 to 4, after scor-
ing the tying and winning runs in
the seventh and eighth innings with-
out the benefit of a base hit.
The Tigers, who also lost yesterday
to the White Sox, filled the bases in
.he ninth with a pair of passes sand-
wiched . around Rudy York's third
single of the game, but saw hopes of
Victory vanish when Mike Kreevich
pocketed pinch hitter Joyner White's
short fly for the final out.
Vern .Kennedy, making his Tiger
debut against the team for which he
won 46 games the past three years,
reverted to his old-time wildness in
the 40 degree weather and was re-
moved in the seventh when he walked
Rip Radcliff on four pitches with
the bases filled to force Tony Rensa
across with the Sox' fourth and ty-
ing run.

Middleweights Joe Sabo of Kala-

Sorenson a technical knockout after
1:25 of the second furious round.
The Witowitch brothers of Detroit

Netters Leave
For Champaign
Squad Of Seven To Mee
Illinois And Indiana
Michigan's Varsity tennis team
leaves this noon for Champaign, Illi.
nois, and it's first two Conferenc
matches of the season this weekend
The Wolverines meet Indiana tomor
row afternoon and take on the Illi
ni Saturday, both at Champaign.
Coach Leroy Weir named the seven
men who made the Spring trip t
make up the squad which will invad
the southernmost point of the Bi
Ten loop. They are Captain Nei
Levenson, Don Percival, Tom Slat
tery, Henry Cohen, Steve Woolsey
John Kidwell, and Ed Morris.
Pointing Fr These
The Wolverines, who won three o
their five eastern matches, are fas
rounding into shape for the 1
matches they must play in the nex
23 days and have been pointing to
ward the two contests this weekend
Last year the Illini offered practi
cally no resistence to the Wolverine
netters and fell before a 6-0 on
slaught. Their material this seaso
does not appear to have improve
appreciably, if at all.
Hossiers Return To Fold
The Hossiers were not on the Mich
igan schedule last season. However
their poor showing in the regula
season and the impracticability o:
financing the Ann Arbor trip for th
Conference tourney in view of thi
fact kept them out of the 1937 Big
Ten meet.

Michigan's undefeated track team
resumes, action after a month's lay-
off Saturday at Bloomington, Ind.
where they open the outdoor half of
the 1938 campaign in a quadrangular
relays meet with Indiana, Notre Dame
and Ohio State.
Only two sore-spots irk the Wol-
verines as they prepare to take on the
three teams. First and foremost will
be the absence of Elmer Gedeon,
front half of the Gedeon-Kelley
hurdle combine. Second is the loss of
Doug Hayes, 440 stalwart, with a
pulled leg muscle.
Kelley Will Be Busy
Otherwise the outlook for an en-
joyable and successful afternoon at
Bloomington is bright. Kelley, who
is enough of a hurdler by himself for
most teams, will make his first start
of the season in the 120-highs. He

week--end in a two game series at
Fifteen Varsity men leave at 1 p.m.
today bound for Champaign and the
Friday and Saturday tussles. The

er, Walter Peckinpaugh, Bob Camp-
bell, Charlie Pink, Dan Smick, Herm
Fishman, Burt Smith, Russ Dobson,
and Ed Andronik.
Badger Loss Hurt
A determined spirit motivates the
Wolverines this week-end. The Bad-
ger defeat was not a pleasant dose. It
hurt to drop a game which everyone
figured as easy pickings and it means
starting the flag race the hard way,
t a fact which the Varsity well realizes.
Then too, defeating the Illini would
be a pleasurable experience. Last
year's championship Illinois team
- downed the Michigan forces twice,
e 9 to 3 and 9 to 0 to give the champs
. a firm grasp on their title.
Poat Is Out
It's a weakened Illini this year.
Lost to Coach Wallie Roettger is
pitching ace Ray Poat, voted as the
o most valuable player in the Big Ten
e last year. Poat, out for the season
g with an elbow malady, won six games
i last year, lost none, and had an
- earned run average of .90.
, The Poat loss and Louie Boudreau's
ineligibility leaves only two Illini let-
termen, Capt. Johnny Callahan, first
f baseman, and Tom McConnell,
t catcher.
2 The Wolverine pitching staff may
a all see action in the series should the
- occasion arise. Likely mound starter
. on Friday is big Andronik, the sur-
prising sophomore speedball artist,
e with Dan Smick, Herm Fishman, or
Burt Smith working Saturday.
