First thing to do after
you've succeeded in dating
your favorite femme is to
order flowers-for her. Next
step is to see us about a Palm
Beach Suit-for you. Our
recommendation is a
PALM B E A C H

Cuban Brown. Air-cooled by
millions of "open windows".
Less than 40 ounces light.
Wrinkle-repellent, washable

(A. P. laustein, Daily City ;Editor.
threatened that if his guest column
wasn't printed, he would play in The
Daily softball game against the Union.
So, here's the column.)
WITH the flourish and fluter
of opening day finally relegated
to oblivion and with the composition
of all 16 major league teams more
or less finally settled, the time is
abput ripe to dust off the crystal
ball again, go out on a limb and pick
the 1941 pennant winners. As far as
we're concerned they'll be fighting the
World Series in Ebbets Field and the
Cleveland Stadium and the Dodgers
will come out on top in the sixth
game.
We admit we're prejudiced. We
were born near the swamps of Flat-
bush, have lived by the banks of
the Gowanus and have spent many
years en.jeying the wonders of
"Williamsboig" and the grandeurs
of "Greenpernt" - but this year
our prediction in the National
League is based on more than just
home-town loyalty.
Before giving reasons why we like
the Dodgers and Indians we might
as well go all the way and list what
we believe will be the final standipgs
National League: Brooklyn, St.
Louis, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Bos-
ton, Chicago, New York, Philadel-
phia.
American League: Cleveland,
New York, Chicago, Boston, De-
troit, St. Louis, Philadelphia, Wash-
ington.
LET'S START with the junior cir-
cuit. We think that Cleveland
is the best bet because the Indians
have a pitching staff that is second
to none in the American League, the
best second base combination in base-
ball and enough good hitters to keep
any pitcher worrying. The Yankees
and Red Sox have a great deal more
power but neither team has a group
of hurlers strong enough to cop the
flag.
Heading the list of the Cleveland
flingers, of course, is the boy wonder
Bobby Feller who will be more than
ably assisted this year by Al Milnar
and Al Smith. The Feller-Milnar-
Smith combine was good for 60 games
last season and is expected to do at
least as well during the rest of 1941.
The second base combine com-
prises two outstanding fielding sen-
sations, Lou Boudreau and Ray
Mack. And the boys can hit, too.
In 1940 Boudreau drove 101 runs
across while Mack knocked in 69.
Other dangerous men at the plate
are outfielder Roy Weatherly and
first baseman Hal Trosky. The
former hit .303 and the latter batted
in 93 runs during the last cam-
paign. .
In Brooklyn the Dodger fans are
also proud of a fine pitching staff
and are more than pleased with the
work of sluggers Ducky Medwick and
Dolph Camilli. Medwick's reputation
as the most dangerous batsman in the
senoir circuit is more than just talk
as they'll tell you in the Flatbush
pool rooms and the loyal Dodgerites,
won't let you forget that their be-
loved Camill is No. I in the National

League in homers and runs-batted
in at the present time.
And so joy and optimism reign
from Sheepshead Bay to the
heights. Gone are the days of the
"hitless wonders" for the team has
a batting average hovering near
the .300 mark; no longer is there
any fear of men getting hit on the'
head by pop-flys with such classy
fielders as Coscarart, Reese and
Herman around the bags; and the
Brooks have no concern over
another possible "three men on a
base" incident if the Dodgers con-
tinue their heads-up ball playing.
HAT ABOUT PITCHING? Wyatt,
Hamlin and Casey are all far
ahead of schedule in reaching that
coveted 20-game circle. Higbe and
Davis are among the finest hurlers
in the circuit and Wicker, Swift and
Kimball are likely to chalk up a score
of victories among them.
They'll also tell you in Flatbush
that Lavagetto is one of the best thirdI
basemen in either league ana that his
batting average is well over .300; that
Herman has been maintaining a bet-
ter than .500 clip since he joined the
Durocherites; that Owen is one of the
smartest catchers in the circuit; that
Phelps is still dangerous at the plate
- and that St. Louis hasn't a chance.
And so there are our predictions.
Next October we'll be expecting to
hear Leo Durocher and Roger Peck-
inpaugh arguing it out while the
Dodgers and Indians knock each
other around on the playing field.
And if all goes well with our guesses
and our loyalties, we'll be out in
Ebbets Field next year rooting for
the new World's Champions.

Netters Expect
Stiff Opposition
From Tartars
Weir Will Start Regulars;
Wayne Has Two Sophs,
Four Juniors n OTeani
(Continued from Page 1)
Stille will form the second doubles
team.
With only two lettermen on the
squad, Tartar Coach Norman Wann
has come up with an exceptionally
strong team. Four of the six players
are juniors, and the other two are
sophomores.
Ed Granger, Wayne captain and
one of the two lettermen, plays in the
number one spot and has been doing
a bang up job. Pete Nunez, number
two player,, is also a junior and has
been giving all of his opponents a run
for their money. When their singles
matches are over, Granger and Nunez
combine to play first doubles.
The Daily learned just before
deadline that Jim Porter, Wolver-
ine number three man who was
scheduled to see double action in
today's match at Wayne, incurred
a foot injury late last night.
Jim will go to the Health Serv-
ice for examination early this
morning, and will definitely be
kept from the Wayne match. Coach
Leroy Weir will be forced to shift
his lineup, but at press time, the
changes were not known.
Playing in the third singles spot
is Harmon Burns, junior letterman,
who has earned his share of Wayne
victories this season. In the fourth
singles position for the Tartars is
19-year-old sophomore Ed Promack,
who teams with Burns to form the
second doubles combination.
In the fifth and sixth spots, re-
spectively, are Elmer Miller, a junior
who combines school work, a regular
shift at the Ford Motor Company,
and tennis, and Tom Carr, 120 pound
sophomore. These two netters form
Wayne's last doubles team.

GoifChampionship . To Be Held At Iowa State

By LYONS HOWLAND
Iowa State College at Ames, Iowa,
will be the site of the 29th annual
Western Junior Golf Championship
to be held June 17 to 20, it was an-
nounced this month by the Western
Golf Association, sponsors of the
tournament.
Last year's tournament was held
over the Lasker Mill Road Farm
Course at Lake Forest, Illinois, under
the joint auspices of the University
of Chicago and Northwestern Uni-
versity. In previous years Michigan
has been host to the tournament.
The match is open to amateur
golfers residing in the United States
and Canada who have reached their
16th birthday and have not attained
their 20th birthday. Play will con-
sist of an 18-hole qualifying rounda

AMERICAN LEAGUEI

Tuesday, June 17, followed by two
rounds of match play Wednesday,
two more on Thursday, and a 36-hole
final match on Friday.
In connection with the qualifying
round there will be a team'champion-
ship to which any school, club, pr dis-
trict golf association may nominate
a team of five players. The qualify-
ing scores of the four lowest scorers
on each. team will count in the
championship. It was this title that
Michigan's team of Dave Osler, Bob
Fife, and Ben Smith swept last
year. Of the trio, Osler was a soph-
omore and Fife and Smith were
freshmen.
During the past several years the
*Western Junior has taken on national
proportions, drawing entries from
most states to make up the largest
field to compete in any Junior tourn-
ey. In 1938 the title was won by
Charles Betcher of Rochester, Min-
nesota. Sam Koesis of Detroit was
the winner in 1939 while Don Brown-
ing of Monroe, Louisiana was last

When the Wolverine nine meets
Purdue at Lafayette Friday night in
the first of their two-game series, it
will be the first time since 1936 that
Michigan has played under the arc
lights ... .
In that year the Varsity journeyed
to Toledo where Big Johnny Gee
struck out 19 out of the first 21 men
to face him to give the Wolverines
a victory over'the Rockets . . . .
Coach Ray Fisher continues to
have the best fielding team in the
Big Ten. The Varsity has only made
11 errors in Conference competition
so far this year to give it an average
of .964. . . . .

shortstop before the team left for
South Bend not to do any sliding be-
b ause of the severe bruises Mike re-

But Mike took a few slides anyhow
and is now limping around like a
wounded soldier . . - .

The Big League scouts, who have
been coming out to see Wakefield
play,,generally agree that he is the
heaviest hitter in the Conference-.
.. Dick has batted in more runs than
any other player in the Big Ten ....
Stubby Christenson, who is substi-
