Golf, Net Squads Return Victorious;
Nine Breaks Even On Southern Trip

Pirates Defeat


Michigan Swimmers
Excell In DAC Meet



Returning home with an even .500
record, three victories, three defeats
and a tie in seven starts, Ray Fish-
er's Varsity baseball team today
looked forward to the season opener,
against Ohio State at Columbus Fri-
In brief here's a resume of what
happened on the southern trip:
Michigan 4, Wake Forest 4-A pitch-
ing duel between Michigan's Jack
Barry and the Deacons' strikeout,
artist, Jimmy Byrne. Rookie Bill
Steppon's homer almost won in the
ninth, but the southerners dead-
locked it in their half, and things
went even until darkness forced a
halt after 11 innings.
Michigan 16, Elon 6-Russ Dobson
showed a great improvement in hold-
ing the Christians down, but still has-
n't lived up to his potentialities.
Sophomore Lyle Bond relieved Russ
in the seventh and held the opposi-
tion completely at bay . . . Smick,
Beebe and Pink led a 20 hit attack.
Michigan 10, Washington and Lee
4-Smick in a comeback held the foes
to two hits in seven innings. Pink
led hitters.
Michigan at V.M.I-Rain after
three innings with the Wolverines
ahead 2-1.
Virginia 2,, Michigan 1-A fine
hurling job by Barry, who lost on
two tough breaks, a disputable home
run in the second and a passed ball
by Evashevski in the 9th with the
bases loaded.
Georgetown 12, Michigan 11--
Sophomore Bond faltered in ninth
after hurling good ball throughout-
Michigan bats clicked but to no avail.
Maryland 4, Michigan 2-Poor in-
field support cost Smick a well earned
victory. Big Dan held the Terrapins
to four hits, and proved definitely
that he is back in form.
Michigan 6, Maryland 0-Barry
was the complete master of the situa-
tion as he gained revenge for the pre-
vious day's defeat by pitching four-
hit ball. Gedeon led the attack with
a pair of homers.
Netters Drop One
Winding up a triumphant tour
through the South with a 9-0 win
over Duquesne, last Saturday, the
Wolverine netmen returned to Ann
Arbor with five victories against a
lone defeat, suffered at the hands of
John Kidwell and Sam Durst led
the squad with five wins and one
loss apiece. Each player was defeat-
ed in the match against Virginia,
which Michigan lost 9-0.
Opening Against Washington and
Lee, April 10, the Weirmen registered
an easy 6-3 victory. Jim Tobin, John
Kidwell, Sam Durst and Ed Morris
chalking up triumphs in the singles,
with the doubles teams of Capt. Don
Percival and John Kidwell, and Steve
Woolsey and Ed Morris adding to the
In a match shortened because of
rain, the Wolverines scored an ab-

breviated win over V.M.I:, 4-1. To-
bin, Kidwell, Durst and Morris were
the victors.
The Wolverines suffered their only
defeat of the trip, April 12, when they
were outplayed by a superior and

feated Michigan's Jack Emery, 2-1,

was unable to garner any points from
Creason. In best ball play, Creason
and Blackwell defeated Tussing and
Emery, 2-1.
Coach Courtright's men gained a
measure of revenge for the tie that

year by soundly walloping them, run-
ning up the largest point total of the
trip. The entire Michigan team
scored under 80, with Palmer and Jim
Loar sharing medal honors with 74's.

of individual and best ball matches.

Four Red Hurlers Combed
For 15 Hits In Opener
CINCINNATI, April 17.- (P) -
Cincinnati's Redlegs almost ended
their opening day victory famine to-
day, but finally succumbed 7 to 5 as
the Pittsburgh Pirates rapped five
markers across the plate in the last
two innings of the National League's
centennial campaign inaugural.
It was the seventh straight opener
lost by the Reds, and was a tough one
for the 30,644 fans to accept, for the
Cincinnatians had a three-run edge
going into the fatal eighth.
The Buccaneers exploded a four-
run bomb in that frame, however, at
the expense of Bucky Walters, who
had relieved Johnny Vander Meer in
the third. Five hits, including
doubles by Vaughan and Young,
rolled off the Pirate bats in the big

of 3:31.2. An all-star team of Otto

also bettered the old mark with a time
of 3:29.8.

Joe Louis Flattens
Challenger In First
LOS ANGELES, April 17.-(IP)-
Joe Louis successfully defended his
heavyweight boxing championship
tonight by knocking out 36-year old
Jack Roper in two minutes and 20
seconds in the first round of their
scheduled 10-round bout.
It was one of the quickest knock-
outs in a heavyweight title fight on
record. Louis polished off Max
Schmeling in less time but probably
no more effectively.
A left hook started Roper on the
way out. He staggered under the
impact of the blow but clinched to
weather the storm. The 36-year old
challenger pounded Louis with rights
and lefts in a brief flurry but Louis
turned the tide swiftly.
