DAILY DOUBLE

Barry Breaks Long Losing Streak;
Cinder Squad Expects Easy Victory

Good Morning ..,
A trembling finger strikes a type-'
writer key and we're off.
For three long years we looked for
ward to poking that key, and then'
suddenly Thursday afternoon those
years of hopes and dreams became
realities. We walked out of a three
o'clock class feeling worried and fear-
ful of the worst on that fateful day.
For a moment we stood motionless,
undecided, but then we felt our legs
starting to carry us toward the Pub-
lications Building. There was no
reason to go that way, but we had
done it so often. We had squeezed
through that narrow walk along New-
berry Hall so many times that almost
without thinking we headed that way
for what we feared was the last time.
"Go home, Don," we kept say-
ing to ourselves. "They'll let you
know if .,. Go on, get away from
here. Beat it, Don." . . . but
those were only words. Our legs
were carrying us where they
wanted to go and we, of course,
obeyed. And as we pulled along-
side of the building, we heard a
lusty shout. People were run-
ning back and forth inside those
walls. "The Board has left.
They're out," someone yelled and
then we knew our doom had been
sealed.
Up the steps we walked. Each one
took us closer to something ... some-
thing we wanted to know. Excited
people were running by us . . . happy
or sad according to what they had
seen on the bulletin board. We were
looking for a familiar face to let us
know, but they were all strangers.
Then finally they came . . . two we
had seen before . . . two who knew
what we were going through. We
looked and waited and it seemed like
a century went by until the one
opened his mouth and the word came
out. "Congratulations."
Just the one word and we knew
that those three years of hopes had
been fulfilled. They were three years
Newsom Hurls
Tigers To Win
Over Chicago
DETROIT, May 10.-(P)-Big Louie
(Buck) Newsom pitched the Detroit
Tigers to their first shutout victory
of the season today as he beat the
Chicago White Sox 3 to 0, thereby
strengthening the Bengals' hold on
third place in the American League
standings.
The Tigers, who haven't been able
to bunch their blows in many games
this season, didn't have this difficulty
today, scoring all their runs in the
sixth inning by bunching two walks,
two singles and a double.
Newsom, complete master of the
situation from start to finish, didn't
allow a White Sox runner to get be-
yond second base and allowed more
than one hit only once-the sixth
when Chicago got two singles after
two men were gone.
The winning rally at the expense
of Johnny Rigney started when Dick
Bartell drew a walk after one man
was out Bruce Campbell then
singled, Bartell going to third. Char-
ley Gehringer's one base drive to
right scored Bartell with a run that
proved .big enough to win.

of fun and thrills. Even from that
very first story about an I-M wrest-
ling meet which the critical man on
desk had to change all around, but
it was our scoop and we loved it,
every changed word of it. Then in our
sophomore year we covered freshman
football and as a grand climax we
called the squad "the worst Michigan
has had in yers" and for a week
after we carefully avoided the aroused
and insulted grid hopefuls.
Our junior year was the one
that counted and we wanted to
make everything so good, but
nothing ever worked right. There
was the time we quoted our boss
as saying, "and this will consis-
ively prove that in Union there is
not strength." And how fine we
felt on the next day when he
asked us what 'consisively' meant.
He had said conclusively. Then
there was the time we wrote our
advance for the Iowa swimming
meet. We tried to be super on
that occasion. Our lead said,
"Matt Mann's band of natatorial
leviathans, already conquerors of
the Gibralters of the swimming
world . . . will take on the un-
defeated Iowa mermen tonight in
their first competitive appear-
ance . . ." And super we were.
Misspellng, poor grammar and
silly words all in one sentence
. . and all when the chips were
down.
Well, the pressure is off now and
we can sit back and make plans for
the future. It seems rather futile
making plans about writing a column
like this when so many of the nations
are holding their sports events on the
battlefields. But at least we can try,
be optimistic and hope again. Three
long years of hopes became realities
Thursday. Perhaps it can happen
again.
Our purposes this year as far as
the column is concerned are simple
and few. We haven't any vital
changes in mind. We don't intend
to make any sensational exposes or
clean out the world of sports. If we
can keep you interested and amused
each day we shall be more than satis-
fied. We want to introduce you to
the men who make sports. We want
to acquaint you with the interesting
things that go on here each day. Our
presentations will be as fair, accurate
and unbiased as we can possibly make
them. One thing that you can be
certain of is that we will try our best
to make the Daily Double, a worth-
while part of the Michigan Daily.
Naturally at a time like this we
feel a sincere appreciation for
the man that came before us.
When we needed his help, we got
it..His criticisms were a tangible
aid. And naturally, too, we re-
member and appreciate the men
that we worked with, our friendly
competitors, Larry Allen, Berm
Epstein, Norm Miller, Jim Mona-
han and Chris Vizas. We can't
help feeling that if we could al-
ways work with men like these,
life would be well worth living.
AAd there is one thing that we al-
ways want our readers to keep in
mind. Let us know when we step on
your toes. Don't fail to correct our
errors. Write us when you disagree
with our opinions. And if all appears
lost to you, if you fipd nothing of
interest here in the Daily Double, re-
member there are less than 240 more
column days until the next sports
editor is chosen. And the battle
abroad might even cut that shorter
. heaven forbid.
Former Michigan Athlete
To Coach Ann Arbor High
Laverne Taylor, ex-Michigan foot-
ball star, will return to Ann Arbor
next fall as head football coach at
Ann Arbor High School, it was an-

nounced yesterday. He will succeed
Louis Halloway, who will take over a
full-time position as Athletic Direc-
tor.
Taylor cbmes to Ann Arbor from
Clark High School in Hammond, Ind.,
where he coached football. He gained
fame in 1926 when he scored the
first 'touchdown in the then new
Michigan Stadium. Later in the sea-
son he suffered a broken neck in a
game with Wisconsin which ended
his playing career.

ointment. Fraker rapped a grounder
deep to Steppon's left. Bill made a
nice stop of the ball, but was thrown
off balance, and had no play at first
base.
Waldo, in the meantime, had round-
ed third and lit for home. Step-
pon's hurried throw struck Umpire
Walsh in the head and Waldo scam-
pered across the plate with the Buck-
eye's lone run. The arbiter was un-
injured on the play.
Barry himself had started the Wol-
verines on the road to victory in the
third inning, when, with one man out,
he punched a single through the box.
Pink then clouted a long three-bag-
ger to left center, scoring Barry with
the first run for the Varsity. Mike
Sofiak walked, but Forest Evashevski
drove a long fly to right field and
Pink romped home after the catch.
. Another brace of runs in the fifth
sent Kilmer to the showers. With
one out, Sofiak again drew a pass.
Coach Ray Fisher then called for a
hit-and-run play, Evashevski re-
sponding perfectly with a clean hit
to right and Sofiak pulled up at
third.
At this point, Coach Fritz Mackey
yanked Kilmer, recently recovered
from an attack of influenza, in favor
of Gene Dornbrook. Steppon struck
out, but on the third strike Evashev-
ski broke for second base. Catcher
Morgan's throw was too late to nip
Evie and Sofiak scored unmolested.
Fred Trosko's line hit to left a mo-
ment later brought in Evashevski to
provide the Wolverines with a 4-0~
lead.

both legs rather than default to Har-

In the last analysis, it was Buckeye
strength in the doubles that told the
story. Tom Gamon teamed with
Durst in the number one doubles

the duo defeated Filemon and McFar-

Returns, Will Rest

Coach Ken Doherty returned yes-
terday after recuperating for two
weeks in a Des Moines, Ia., hospital
from an attack of stomach hemorr-
hages which overtook him while he
was directing the track team's desti-
nies at the Drake Relays. Returning
with him was Mrs. Doherty, who had
gone to Des Moines to be with her
husband during his filness.
Coach Doherty's condition is very
good, but he is a little weak as a
result of the illness and the long
train trip. He plans to resume his
coaching duties as soon as his
strength has returned sufficiently.
In the interim he will rest at his
home.
Freshman Coach Stackhouse, who
has been in charge of the team dur-
ing Doherty's absence, took the team
to Columbus yesterday for their dual
meet with Ohio State.

The Preakness, ranking with the
Derby in tradition and importance,
will provide another battle royal with I
the possibility that some long shot
may take down the rich purse just
as Gallahadion did at Churchill
Downs a week ago.
Gallahadion will be trying for his
second leg ' on the three-year-old
crown and to show that his victorious
derby effort was no fluke.
Bimelech, on the other hand, will
be out for revenge on the hard-run-
ning colt that caught him in the Der-
by's long home stretch and flicked a
pair of driving heels in his face at
the finish. Until then, Bimelech
never had been defeated.
Tonight's probable odds showed
Bimelech an 8 to 5 favorite, still re-
garded as tops in the three-year-old,
division. Odds of 6 to 1 were quoted
on Gallahadion.
