Bengals Beaten
By Kansas City
But Rowe Stars
LAKELAND, Fla., April 5.-P)-
The Kansas City Blues, a main sup-
ply house now for the New York
Yankees, benefited from a series of
breaks today to trim the champion
Tigers, 6 to 5 in ten innings in an
exhib4ion game.
Still and all, the defeat by the
minor leaguers failed to disturb the
Tigers greatly, even though it did
extend a long string of spring season
setbacks. For Schoolboy Rowe did a
good job.
The Schoolboy, who hurled the,
first seven innings and allowed only
four hits while walking. nobody,
turned in his first laudable work of
the new season. He also hit a home
run. He left with the Tigers leading,
4 to 2, and young Hal White from
Buffalo was the losing pitcher.
Detroit collected 15 hits to Kansas
City's eight, but the Tigers left 15
men stranded while the Blues cleaned
Tuck Stainback's four hits pleased
Manager Del Baker of the Tigers.
During the early part of the spring
training Tuecker couldn't buy a hit.
Now, however, he has made 10 blows
in his last 20 times at bat. He got
three singles and a double today.

News From The Front.. ..
YESTERDAY's MAIL brought the
following letter from a former
Daily sports writer:
Fort Knox, Ky.
Dear Don,
When I wrote finis to my Daily
sports writing career last May by
covering the Kentucky Derby, I
was afraid that it was my last
opportunity to attend the great
American classic for many years
to come.
frWell, here I am, just 30 miles
from Louisville, and nothing short
of a very unsympathetic first ser-
geant will keep me from once more
planking my two bucks (it's al-
most half a week's salary now)
on an also ran.
Here's a tip for you. If you're ever
called upon to serve your country,
and you're asked 'what sort of work
you like to do, don't mention sports
writing. That's what I did, and evi-
dently, it didn't make too great of
an impression. After my interviewer
looked up the word "sports" and
"writing" in his dictionary, he
brought forth the simple verdict ...
Tell your friends who think they'll
be rejected because they're a few
pounds overweight that they're har-
boring false illusions. There's one
lad in my baracks who weighed in
at 106 pounds, another at 108. Then
there's one who tips the beam at
273. d
Nor do a few of the others look
exactly like the healthiest speci-
mens of humanity. One of the boys
has no back teeth on one side;
another has stomach ulcers; several
wear glasses with lenses a quarter
inch thick. One lad, believe it or
not, has his trigger finger missing.
Married men are far ffom rare
around here too.'
Guess my hopes of meeting Hank
Greenberg in the army are just
about shattered. The nearest ap-
proach so far has been a guy who
once had a tryout as an outfielder
with Youngstown in the Mid-At-
lantic league.
As soon as I arrived here, I started
to pile up athletic laurels by win-
ning the ping-pong championship of
my barracks. There were four other
guys in the tournament, so maybe
my college days weren't a total fail-
ure at that . . . at least the time
spent in Pick Fingerle's Union billiard
I've only been here a week so it's
a little too early to say much about
army life. Say hello to everyone for
me and I hope I don't see too many
of you here too soon.

P.S. - I have two barrack-mates
named Goebbels and Goaring. We've
been loking for Adolf himself to show
his puss any time.

Lanky Kozlowski, as nervous as a

One minute later Paul, the River
Rouge freshman who has been con-I
sistently the flashiest halfback on
the spring grid squad, was carried off
the field with what was superficial t

him under a bone-wrenching pile-up,f

he would play no more football until1

Happily, however, a more thoroughI
X-ray examination revealed that
there were no broken bones and that,
although Paul had sustained a bad1
sprain, he will in all probability be
able to play again immediately after

Fran Heydt, Michigan's National Col-

roaring up in the final two laps to
finish second, four feet ahead of Fol-
lansbee with the weary Texan pick-
ing up the fourth place point.
The Wolverines dropped two points
farther behind after that event, but
picked them up again immediately
after in the 440-yard freestyle grind.
After leading the field in the after-
