* Trouble With Penguin
* More Jane Russell
Daily Sports Editor
SOME cold-blooded fellow on the
business staff double-crossed us
yesterday. At first there was plenty
of space in which to dwell at length
on the vagaries of the sports world.
But at the last minute he insisted
that we had to share our space with
that pesky penguin you see down
below here..
So the sports hash will be plenty
brief this morning:
HE BALL GAME down at Pur-
due last night was the first
Western Conference tilt ever played
under the lights . -. . it was neces-
sary to obtain sanction from all
the Big Ten athletic directors .. .
last year's track, captain, Ramblin'.
Ralph Schwarzkopf, is slated to run
against mighty Greg Rice a week
from today . .. a crack two-mile
field has been assenibled for a crack
at the world's outdoor record . . .
Don Canham, retiring captain of
the spikemen, will coach West-
ern Military Academy in Alton, Ill.
next year.
Coach Ken Doherty who will send
his wandering trackmen into action
in the Los Angeles Coliseum Relays
this afternoon promised to wire us
every day he was gone . . . and tell
of anything interesting happening
but so far no word . . per-
haps the party did get tangled up
wih Jane Russell . . California's
two-mile quartet will be favored in
the -relay, while Michigan, Indiana
and Drake also have powerful four-
somes . . . in the mile relay it will
also be the Golden Bears who rank
as pre-meet favorites.

Linksmen Lose, 19-8;
State To Seek Revenge
Smil!th Beaten In Second Straight Match;
Tobin In Last Home Appearance

(Special to The Daily)
EAST LANSING, May 23.-Plagued.
by unfamiliarity with one of ,the most
peculiar courses in this part of the
country, and by cn old jinx that sems
to pop up annually at this time of
the yearuMichigan's mighty golf team
lost its last match of the season here
today on Walnut Hills Club Course
to an inspired Michigan State team
by a 19 to 8 score.
It was the same old story for the
second year in a row today, a favored
Michigan team being tied or losing to
a Sartan squad after trouncing the
same squad in an early-season match.
Win Two Matches
Practicing only once this season
on a course which requires hours of
work to familiarize the player with
its intricacies, the Wolvehne team
bowed low in defeat as it took only
two out of a total of nine :matches,
the combination of Bob Fife and
Dave Osler winning in the best ball
matches, and Fife shooting a 74 in
the singles to take his match against
George Busch.
Michigan's great Ben Smith sur-
prised everybody by losing both his
matches, his conquer-ors being na-
tional intercoll'egiate driving cham-
pion Stanley Kowal in the singles,
and best ball combination Jim Fun-
ston and Kowal in the doubles. The
Florida ace just had an off day on
the strange course, carding a three-
lover-par 75.
Fife Paces Varsity
Sophomore Bob Fife seemed to be
the only one not confused by the
strange layout of Walnut Hills
Course. The Highland Parker had
almost complete control over his put-
ter, and displayed plenty of power
in both wood and iron shots, his
smooth play leading observers to
comment that he was pqtentially one
of the best players in the Western
Capt. Fred Dannenfelser, Johnnies
Barr and Leidy, and Southpaw Dave
Osler all felt the overpowering force
of the Spartans' play, 'Dannie' card-
ing an 82, Barr 79, Leidy 80, and Os-
ler 83.
Scheduled local activities for the
year will end next week. Two major
tournaments to close the season have
been scheduled, the first being a
match with a team of women play-
ers sponsored by the Woman's Ath-
letic Association Sunday on Univer-
sity Golf Course. Coach Ray Court-
right has set the annual freshman-
varsity tilt for Saturday, May 31.
Singles: Kowal (S) 74, defeated
Smith (M) 75. 2-1; Funston (S) 78,
defeated Dannenfelser (M 82, 3-0;
Zylstra (S) 71, defeated Leidy (M)
80, 3-0; Kortge (S) 77, defeated Barr
(M) 79; 3-0; Fife (M) 74, defeated
Busch (S) 85, 3-0; Hutt (S) 77, de-
feated Osler (M) 83, 3-0.
Best Ball: Kowal, Funston (S) de-
feated Smith, Dannenfelser (M), 2-1;
Zylstra, Kortge (S) defeated Leidy,
Barr (M), 3-0; Fife, Osler (M) de-
feated Busch, Hutt (S), 3-0.
Ilorton Smith Leads Field
In Goodall Golf Tourney
NEW YORK, May 23.-(IP)-Hor-
ton Smith shot himself a pair of par
70's over the testing Fresh Meadow
C.C., course today and, after three
rounds of the seven-round Goodall
Round-Robin, was in the lead anyway
you figured.
His 54-hole medal score was 209,
one under par, and has net total of
holes' won from six of his 14 rivals
was 13. That gave him a one-stroke
lead over Vic Ghezzi of Deal, N.J., at
210, and a one-point margin over
Ghezzi and Paul Runyan, the small-
est man in the field, each of whom
had point scores of plus 12.

Michigan State's tennis team in-
vades Ann Arbor today to help the
Wolverines ring down the curtain on
the 1941 home season. Play will begin
at 2 p.m. on the Palmer Field courts.
Although the Michigan net forces
whipped the Spartans, 7-2, earlier in
the year at East Lansing, most of
the individual matches went three
sets, and from all indications the
Wolverines will be in for another hard
Neither team's lineup is definitely
set but Leroy Weir, Maize and Blue
net mentor, indicated yesterday that
he would start Capt. Jim Tobin in
the first singles spot, Lawton Ham-
mett at two, Wayne Stille at three,
Tom Gamon at four, and Alden John-!
son at five. In the last singles position
will be either Gerry Schaflander or
Roy Bradley. In doubles, the team
of Tobin and Hamnett in first posi-
tion is the only one set to play, with
the other combinations depending on
the results of the singles matches.
Coach C. D. Ball of the Spartans
is bringing along six men - Morris
Drilling, Capt. Fred Perkins, Frank
Beeman, Bill Maxwell, Floyd Krause,
and Irv Roberts - and in all pro-
bability they will play singles in
that order. Michigan State's doubles
combinations are also very indefinite,
with the results of the singles decid-
ing the formations of the duos.
Maxwell and Beeman scored the
two points the Spartans won in the
first match, the former beating Stille
and the latter downing Porter, whose
injured foot has not healed sufficient-
ly enough to allow him to play today.
When he was in Detroit Thurs-
day, Jim Tobin told a Detroit report-
er that he was planning to enter the
City and public parks competition
this summer. In 1939 Jim went to
the semi-finals in the public parks
meet, but was kept on the sidelines
last year because of a knee injury.
* * * .
Alden Johnson has been doing a
bang-up job for the Wolverines this
year. He has lost only two matches,
out of the 13 he has played this sea-
son - one to Robinson of North
Carolina on the Southern tour and
one to Art Jones of Illinois. He now
has a seven game winning streak,
and the little sophomore hopes to
prolong it through the Conference
matches next week.
Besides playing tennis almost every
afternoon, Wayne Stille, regular num-
ber four man, has progressed to the
quarter final round of the all cam-
pus ping-pong tournament and has
already won the all campus bowl-
ing crown.

Louis Bounces
Baer In 7th;
Bout Protested
Ancil Hofftman Claims Foul
In Sixth Round; Bomber
SluggedThrough Ropes
23. -(P)- After being knocked
through the ropes in the first round,
Joe Louis came back tonight to suc-
cessfully defend his World Heavy-
weight Championship for the 17th
time when Buddy Baer was unable to
come out for the seventh round of
a fight that ended in confusion even
among the officials as to just what
had happened at the finish. Louis
weighed 201%/4; Baer 2372.
Referee Arthur, Donovan said he
"disqualified Baer for refusing to
come out for the start of the seventh."
However, Ancil Hoffman, Baer's man-
ager, roared that he was claiming
the "bout and title on a foul" because,
he charged, Louis had hit the huge
Californian after the bell sounded
ending the sixth round.
Baer Floored Twice
Baer had just been floored for the
second time in the sixth round with
a vicious right cross. He got up just
as the lips of both Referee Donovan
and the knockdown timekeeper,
Charles Reynolds, formed the word
"ten." Just then the bell ending the
round sounded, but Louis already
had charged across the right and let
go a smashing right that connected
with Buddy's jaw. Buddy's hand-
lers refused to let him come out for
the seventh, and Hoffman, who
piloted Buddy's big brother, Max,
to the heavyweight title, announced
he was claiming the foul.
Finish Confused
The finish was greeted by 'con-
fused shouts and roars from the
crowd of more than 25,000 who
jammed this big ball park, but the
most amazing part of the fight came
in the first round, almost the first
minute, when Buddy charged across
the ring and let go a smashing left
hook that dropped Louis head first
between the second and top strand of
the ropes. He climbed to his feet
and got back into action at the
count of four.
Referee Donovan announced that
the fight officially ended in the sev-
enth round.
"That talk about Louis hitting
Baer after the bell is baloney," Re-
feree Donovan said later. "The blow
started before the bell sounded."
"It was out and out robbery," Hoff-
man charged. "I didn't want Don-
ovan as the referee, but I had to
take him in order to get the fight."
Baer, himself, bore his manager
out. contending he "heard the bell
and was hit just as I was dropping
hands." Louis, however, insisted he
had not hit his gigantic rival after
the bell.

1209 South University

season in a blaze of glory yesterday
afternoon as it pounded out an 18-12
victory over Prescott House in the
softball finals at South Ferry Field
to take first place honors in the all-
dormitory sports' contest.
Nineteen powerful hits by the
mighty : Williams House sluggers
along with an exceptional brand of
pitching by star hurler, Ham Fish-
er, gave the Williamites all they
needed to send their rivals back to
the East Quad in defeat.
For awhile it looked like there
wouldn't be much of a ball game as
the Williamites hammered out a 11-0

lead before the first inning was over.
Lead off man, Art Bergren drove out
a beautiful triple to set off the Wil-
liams fireworks. Bob Allen took his
base on' balls and broad-shouldered
Jerry Tooley cracked a hard triple to
score the two men. The Prescott
infield then began to weaken and
Tooley came in on a bad peg.
Brown Hits Homer
Jim Brown swatted the next ball
pitched for a homerun and Sam
Sneath followed with a Texas Leaguer
single. Ozzie Feldman, ace short
fielder, blasted out a triple to score
another run and, Walt Lampert drove
in three more runs with the second
homer of the day. Tooley socked an-
other triple to drive in a run and
scored himself on a bad pitch.
Prescott showed that it was not
down yet asrRussel drove in a run
with a powerful double in the first
part of the second. Vander Made
walked and Goodwin doubled to
score two more runs.
Prescott Tightens In Field
Prescott tightened in the field and
held the Williamites to a single tally
in their half of the second. Jim
Brown scored on an overthrow after
Dick Belford had singled on a hard
drive in the infield.
The East Quaders were good for
three runs in the fou ,th but the
Williamites more than matched it
by driving in four markers. Prescott
kept fighting and collected six runs
to the Williamites' three in the last
two, innings. But the lead was too
big and Williams won without bat-
ting at the end of the seventh.
