Scotsman Rallies To Take
Duncan, 2 And 1
HOYLAKE, England, May 27.-(AP)
-Alex Kyle, a free-swinging fasti-
dious Scotsman, came from behind
on the last round today to beat soldier
Tony Duncan of Wales 2 and 1 for the 3
British Amateur Golf Championship.1
Two down after 18 holes and evenj
after 33, Kyle won the 34th and 35th
to tale the title back to Scotland
for the first time since Hector Thom-
son won it in 1936. Ironically, Dun-1
can, a superb putter, lost it on the
The soldier lost his chance to send
the match to the final hole by hit-
ting his second out of bounds at the,
35th and ending up with a six, two
over par, while Kyle played safe with
a five. Duncan actually put himself
in a tough spot by hitting balls out
of bounds at the 19th and 21st holes
to lose the two-hole advantage he
gained through the first 18 holes.

First Doherty Track Team May
Rival 1938_HoytPowerhouse

"The old order changeth," but the
new looks as good as the old.
When Charlie Hoyt leaves Michi-
gan next fall, his successor, Ken
Doherty, falls heir to 443/4 points of
this year's total which brought the.
Wolverine trackmen their third con-
secutive outdoor championship. After
Ken complements this array of track
power with his own freshman aces,
things appear to indicate another in
the long line of Michigan champions.
To be sure, 20 points Pryduate with
Capt. Bill Watson and Elmer Ged-
eon, but partial replacement of these
two and the addition of strength in
other events presages a fine begin-
ning for the Doherty regime.
Root Shows Promise
There will be no replacing Watson's
all-around prowess, but individuals
like Bob Hook and freshman George
Ostroot in the shot put, Ostroot in
the discus, And the Culver twins in
the broad jump will take up a major
share of the slack left by the gradua-
tion of Michigan's great captain.

Always Reasonably Priced

Hook missod second place in the
Big Ten shot put last week by only
one inch, and Ostroot has pushed the
iron ball out some 45 feet with very
little practice. In the discus, Ostroot
has bettered Watson's freshman rec-
ord by more than eight feet, and that
despite his being busied with foot-
ball most of the spring.
Kelley Leads Hurdlers
Gedeon's loss will leave Michigan
with Stan Kelley, John Kutsche and
Sherm Olmsted, with freshmen Ray
Gauthier and Larry Gluck coming up
to help. Kelley ran 14.4 this year,
and despite a poor showing in the
Conference meet, is a highly capable
successor to the elongated Gedeon.
But it is the other events that
the new power will be concentrated.,
Two fine yearling pole vaulters will
join up with Dave Cushing and Aug-
ust Fabyan to provide one of the
finest vaulting corps in Wolverine
history. Chuck Decker vaulted well
over 13 feet last year while in high
school, and did 13 feet 5 inches in the
Junior AAU's. Despite sickness, he
has shown up well in practice, and
may be the number one vaulter next
year. Little Wayne MacMaster, an-
other 13-foot-vaulting frosh, will
press his bigger teammate to the limit.
Ackerman In Mile
The long-striding BilleAckerman
will be a familiar figure next among
the distance runners. Ackerman has
been running the mile in about 4:25
and the two mile in 9:45 with very
little competition. He will attempt
to smash Ralph Schwarzkopf's mile
record next Monday, and should ac-
complish that if pushed at all. What-
ever event he enters next year, he has
a promising future in store for him.
The quantity of sprinters coming
up from Doherty's freshman team is
overshadowed only by the quality of
these same dashmen. Bud Piel, Don
Jones, Al Thomas, Ed Cheney and'
Jim McGhee, have all run about 10
seconds flat, and Thomas and Piel
have both run 9.9.
With Johnny Kautz and Bill Dob-
son trying to become the fourth man
on the relay team, with Dick Fogg
and Art Farr, in the half mile, and
Bill Dannacher in the mile, the frosh
will be able to give Doherty still more
"The old order changeth," and,
who knows but what the new may be
better than the old?

of three games as they romped
through their opponents. Woolsey
won 12 successive games to downj
Don Gardlock, 6-0, 6-0, while Morris'
gave up three games to win over
Paul Cram 6-0, 6-3.
In the other singles matches, Jim
Tobin continued his brilliant play
of late to rout Ray McColligan, 6-0,
6-3. Tobin's drop shots and service,
which have been his main point win-
ners in the last few matches, again
gave him constant points.
Durst Wins 16th
Sam Durst once more completely
outclassed his opponent as he won
his 16th match of the year 6-4, 6-1,
while Jim Po#er romped through
George Johnson 9-7, 6-1.
With the match won by the clean
sweep of the singles, 2oach Leroy
Weir juggled his doubles combina-
tions in order to give his veterans
some needederest before thecoming
Conference meet.
Just as the doubles teams started
to play, a cloudburst overtook them,
and completely washed out the courts,
thus forcing them to play on the
wooden courts at the Intramural
Michigan Doubles victory
In first position were John Kidwell
and Ed Morris. This pair took the
measure of Don Gardlock and Ray
McColligan 7-5, 6-2. Morris' service
completely fooled the visitors as he
garnered ace after ace, while Kid-
well's forehand drives added to the

Charlie Pink's Uncanny Bunts
Make Him Feared In Big Tenj

Regarded by no less an authority
than Coach Ray Fisher himself as
one of the best lead-off men he has
ever had. Charlie Pink for the second
year in a row has set a hot pace at
the head of the Mirliigan lineup and
is far in the lead for batting honrs
with but one game to go.
Much of Michigan's success in the
Big Ten race which is in its final
week and finds the Wolverines fight-
ing for a first place tie after finish-
ing a poor eighth last year, is attrib-
utable to diminutive Charlie. He has
proved a model lead-off man, one
whom enemy coaches have learned
to fear because of his uncanny abil-
ity to get on base.
Pink, who specializes in laying
down beautifully executea bunts, 22
of which he has beaten out this sea-
son, won the center field job as a
sophomore lasteyear and proceeded
to belt the ball for a .319 average. Only
Danny Smick, the team's leading bat-
ter, and Capt. Walt Peckinpaugh
finished higher than Charlie for the
season. In addition, Charlie led his
teammates in base stealing with 17
thefts and this year, with one more
game to go, he trails shortstop Mike
Sofiak by only two, with 14.
On the Southern trip at the start
of the season in April, Pink lost no
time in getting his eye on the ball
and wound up with an impressive
.411 average, only 12 points below
the team's pace setter, Elmer Gedeon.
And now, at the tail end of the sea-
14 Nickesachs
14 Nickels Arcade

son, he boasts a .375 mark which
leads the entire club. Pete Lisagor
has been the only Wolverine to ap.-
proximate Charlie's rwco-d with a
.335 average.
Coach Fisher marveis at the man-
ner in which Pink drops his deft
bunts along the third and first base
lines. "I've never seen anyone do a
better job," says Fisher. Charlie has
an advantage over right-handed bat-
ters in that from the south side of
the plate he can make a faster start
for first base. A quick getaway also
adds to his speed on the base paths.
Pink has always been a dependable
outfielder. He has a good eye and a
keen sense of direction. He always
makes it a point to catch a fly ball in
a position to throw.
