the Tigers signed Newhouser to a

The Michigan catcher has Major
League aspirations, but although he
has been approached by several big
league clubs he is waiting until he
graduates before hooking up with.
any outfit. At that time he may
forsake law school for a major
league career if tendered an invit-
ing offer. His school work compares
favorably with his diamond work,
however, as his B average readily
attests.
Much of the Wolverines' success
this year can be attributed to Harms.
Not only has his Jig bat broken up
many ball games with timely hits,,
but he has left practically nothing
to be desired in his handling of the
pitchers. The inexperienced hurling
corps which started the season for
the Maize and Blue is loud in its
praise of the fiery catcher who helped
it become the ace staff of the Big
Tens
A born fighter, Harms never gave
up no matter how far behind the
Wolverines might have been. His

plate added pep to the Michigan de-
Tense and helped bolster the pitchers
when they were in trouble.
As for Ruehle, not enough praise
can be heaped upon his head for his
sterling work in the Maize and Blue
drive to the title. The fleet first
baseman, who also starred on the
basketball teamln, finished the season
with a batting mark of .320, driving
in runs when they were most needed.
A senior in the Education School,
Ruehle hopes to do some recreation
work in his native city, Detroit, this
summer before being drafted in the
fall. He also intends to keep his
batting eye sharpened in a Detroit
amateur league.
Like Harms, Ruehle played Ameri-
can Legion ball in Detroit, forsaking
the high school nine until his senior
year.

Between State and Mich. 'Theater

By DICK SIMON
The Net Results . . . Not enough
can be said in praise of the brilliant
tennis Coach Leroy Weir's 1941 cham-
pionship netters played in winning
their first Conference title last week-
end on the University of Chicago
courts . . . with a few breaks the
Wolverines might have garnered
five or six additional points .
Poor Lawton Hammett . . he
met Art Neilson, Wisconsin cap-
tain, when the Badger number two
player had one of the hottest days
of his career . . . when the two
played in the dual meet earlier in
the year Hammett whipped him
handily . . but Neilson just
couldn't be beaten Thursday .-,
he returned everything Lawt hit
him and then made beautiful place-
ment shots as well -
And Jim Porter, too . . . kept idle
with a bad foot for 10 days., Jim
went into the first day's matches
cold, but emerged with a three set
victory over Crane of Iowa . . . rain
forced the players inside Friday
when the I Wolverine number three
man was scheduled to play Geane-
koplis of Minnesota . . . this Goph-
er was one tough cookie and he pro-
;eeded to bring Jim to the net by
drop shotting him, and then passing
him with a well-placed ball down
the baseline until he had beaten the
favored Michigan netter, 6-4, 6-1 .. .
The doubles team of Porter and
Wayne Stille lost a heart-breaker
to Kemetick and Self of Chicago
the Chicagoans kept lobbing
their opponents until the smashing
overheads of Stille and Porter be-
gan to lose their accuracy . . . it
was a tough one to lose because
the Michigan men had had little
trouble with their opponents in the
dual meet match-.
Capt. Jim Tobin reached the peak
of his game during the tournament.
. he had no trouble with Butter-
worth of Iowa, but really had to play
smart tennis to beat McFarlane of
Ohio State . . . the Buckeye net-
ter was a regular cat on his feet, re-
turning almost every thing that came
his way.
Wayne Stille played great tennis,,
but just didn't seem to be able to
defeat Nosek of Minnesota in the
finals . . . it was a tough struggle
to lose because the "Duke" really
gave his all to gain the fourth
bracket crown .
In the last doubles match, Gerry

AMERICAN LEAGUE

Schaflander and Tom Gamon couldn't
seem to get their serves going right
Johansen and Martin of Chi-
cago had terrific forehand drives
and this proved to be enough to keep
the net -game of the Wolverines
stifled.
Tobin and Hammett put up a
brilliant battle before they were de-
feated by Greenberg and Richards
in the first doubles final... Green-
berg was making miraculous shots
and he seemed to be all over the
court . . . with the score 5-4 in
games and set point against the
Wildcats, the Northwestern south-
paw made a beautiful passing shot
to make the score deuce . . . from
here on the two Michigan players
put up a valiant but vain attempt
to win the set .
This leaves but two players to be
accounted for-Tom Gamon and Al-
den Johnson-the only two Michigan,
men to gain individual titles
Gamon played steady, consistent ten-
nis and his serves were really ter-
rific
And last but far from least is
little "Jinx" Johnson . . . this
sophomore not only scored the
only shut-out of the tourney, but
he lost only two games in the last
five sets he played..

Coach Fisher
Gives Varsity
Nine Day Off
Bears To Meet Michigan
As Six Seniors Make
Their Last Appearance
By BOB SHOPOFF
Michigan's championship baseball
squad received a well-earned day of
rest yesterday as Coach Ray Fisher
told the boys to take the day off. After
winning three games and the Confer-
ence title they deserved it.
Today, however, the team will have
a short batting and fielding practice
in preparation for the last two games
of the season against the University
of California tomorrow and Thurs-
day at Ferry Field.
Steppon Well Again
If the Wolverine nine is able to
play both games this week, it will
mean that they played every tilt in
a 32-game schedule. To date they
have won 22 games while losing only
seven.
Bright spot of the weekend, besides
winning, was thereturn of Capt. Bill
Steppon to his position at the key-
stone sack. Bill is feeling much better
and was certainly glad to be in there
when the Wolverines grabbed 'the
crown. He will be ready for both
games against the Bears.
There is nothing but smiles on the
face of the Michigan diamond coach
these days. Ray fisher, finishing his
21st year with Michigan, was very
pleased .with the way his squad came
through and he has plenty of praise
for each member of the team.
Wakefield Bats .368
Fisher was especially pleased with
the showing of Big Dick Wakefield
this year. He said that 1pick was a
great hitter and that "he was im-
proving each week." One glance at the
records will prove these statements.
The Wolverine rightfielder ended the
season with a .368 average to lead
the team. He collected 39 hits among
which were two doubles, five triples
and seven home runs. He led the
Big Ten conference in runs batted
in and home runs and has had a
flock of major league scouts trailing
him lately.
Tomorrow Fisher plans to start
Cliff Wise against the California
squad. Cliff turned in one of his best
games at Evanston and has become
the leading pitcher on the team. Cal-
ifornia won the Pacific Coast title
this season so the series should de-
cide whether the Wolverines are still
the champions of the West. Michi-
gan has already turned back the
tears of the Mid-West and of the
Southern coast.
California Tough
The Wolverine mentor certainly
isn't expecting an easy time against
the Bears. In their regular season
they displayed plenty of power besides
showing good pitching. They are now
on a nation-wide barnstornfing tour.
This series will mark the last time
that six players will appear in
Michigan uniforms. They are Capt.
Steppon, Mike Sofiak, shortstop,
George Ruehle, first-baseman, and
Mickey Stoddard, Mase Gould and
Les Veigel, pitchers.

Golf Team To Face Freshmen

By LYONS ROWLAND
DIVOT DIGGINGS: Activities on
the Wolverine golf front are compara-
tively quiet this week as Coach Ray
Courtright's boys prepare for some
stiff competition in 'the coming Big
Ten meet on June 18 . <..
Michigan is expected to have plenty
of trouble with Illinois, defending
Big Ten champion. Curiously enough,
last year an all-veteran Michigan
team trounced Illinois in dual meet
competition, but lost the team title
in the Big Ten tournament. Wolver-
ine fans are hoping the tables will
be reversed this time .
Main activity this week is the an-
nual varsity-freshman match which
"Corky" has scheduled for tomorrow
at 1 p.m. Several good freshmen are
expected to put up some stiff oppo-
sition to the varsity, although Captain
Fred Dannenfelser and his boys
shouldn't have too much trouble with
the yearlings .
Speaking of Wolverine fans, Michi-
gan's Fielding "Hurry Up" Yost will
be in there plugging for the linksmen
