twice and drove in three runs. Left
fielder Don Holman also collected a
trio of singles in five tries.
To put it briefly: The news in this
story is not in who got hits but in
who didn't. Of those men who played
the entire game only Bud Chamber-
lain and Cain failed to get at least
two safeties. Each hit one. Chamber-
lain clipped the ball terrifically hard
twice with men on base, then finally
got a single on an infield dribbler.
Coach Ray Fisher was very well
pleased with Cain's showing. The
husky right hander had very good
control and kept the pitch right
where backstop Harms wanted it
throughout the game. His speed and
curve were good, although not excep-
tional. Mickey Fishman will take the
mound against Virginia tomorrow.

afternoon were in the bottom two
divisions where Tom Gamon met
State's Roger Cessna and Alden
Johnson battled Spartan sophomore
Herbert Hoover. Tom took the first
set rather easily, 6-2, but lost the
second one just as easily as he had
won the previous one, 2-6.
With the score at 4-all and Ga-
mon having a 40-15 advantage, the
Wolverine netter failed to hold his
service and Cessna won the game.
Gamon broke through his opponent's
serve to knot the set, and after the
lead had changed hands several
times, Gamon finally won two games
in a row and the third set, 12-10.
Johnson Wins Thriller
"Jinx" Johnson's match was al-
most a duplication of Gamon's, with
the Wolverine mite losing the first
set, 2-6, and winning the second one
by the same score. In the final set,
the score became 3-all and not once
after that until the last two games
did either "Jinx" or Hoover win their
own service. Hoover had Johnson
match point at 7-8, but "Jinx" pulled
the game out of the fire. The two
battled on to a 9-all, 10-all, 11-all
and 12-all until Johnson won the
next two games and the set, 14-12, in
a match that lasted about three
Earl May was the only Spartan
able to capture a singles victory and
Gerry Schaflander, number four
player, was his victim. Gerry put
up a good fight, but his overhead
shots and his net play weren't up
to par and he lost, 4-6, 6-3, 2-6.
Hammett-Porter Win
In doubles, Hammett and Porter,
playing in the second spot, took ad-
vantage of their net games to come
from behind to beat Beeman and
May, 1-6, 7-5, 6-3. Both Michi-
gan men showed a good brand of
doubles play in the last two sets.
The last doubles match which did
not start until after 7 p.m. found
Johnson and Gamon teaming to out-
last State's duo composed of Cessna
and Jim McGaw, 6-3, 3-6, 6-2. Both
Johnson and Gamon were quite tired
after their gruelling singles matches
and it showed in their doubles play.
As it was "Jinx" was forced to play
68 games of tennis during the course
of the afternoon.
Stille and Schaflander fell prey to
the State number one doubles team,
Maxwell and Kline, and lost in
straight sets, 4-6, 4-6. Neither Mich-
igan netter played his best brand of
ball and errors were numerous
throughout the match.

COLLEGE PARK, Md., April 16-
You would probably have to be
a senior now to remember the next-
to-last University of Chicago foot-
ball team that played in Michigan's
stadium back in 1938.
The word played is not to be taken
too literally. The Maroons tried hard.
They had a lot of fun. But they didn't
exactly play football. The final score
was 45-7 in favor of the Wolverines
and they didn't try to pour it on.
But this isn't the point anyway.
Close followers of the gridiron
sport know that Clark Shaugnessy,
the man who coached the mater-
ial-starved Maroons, left Chicago
the next year after football was
dropped from the midway as an in-
tercollegiate sport. Shaugnessy was
offered a permanent post on the
Chicago faculty at a healthy sal-
ary, but declined and instead grab-
bed the head coaching berth at
Well-known, too, is the fact that
the Cardinals of the coast immedi-
ately experienced a football rennais-
sance, won the Pacific Championship
and the Rose Bowl game that first
year. Last season the record was not
as sensational but still good enough
to assure the silver haired gridiron
tactician a job at Stanford for a
good many years.
T HEN just last month he surprised
everyone but his own son-a Cal-
ifornia sports editor who broke the
story-by resigning his contract and
taking the head coaching position
here at the University of Maryland.
The question is, of course, why did
he leave Stanford, a large well-es-
tablished football school with per-
ennially fine teams, to come to Mary-j
land, which never has graced the up-
per pinnacle of gridiron success.
Shaugnessy, himself, the man who
glamorized the T formation in col-
legiate football, supplied the answer
today in partial form. Emphasizing
that he didn't desert the Pacific
Coast for just another football job,
Shaugnessy dpclared that his num-
ber one objective is national offense
keynoted by a mass physical train-
ing program. According to the new
Terrapin mentor some such program
is an excellent opportunity to "do
something in this emergency when
every little bit helps."
Not too far in the background,
of course, is Shaugnessay'y desire to
lift Maryland's gridiron prestige
throughout the nation. Here on a
long-term contract he will have

ample time to do so if it is within
his power.
The training program he proposes
swings about the university's compul-
sory physical education in effect now.
Clark desires full student participa-
tion in all sports with the emphasis
on football with elevens stemming
from many different organizations
such as Officer's Training Corps and
each class in the college, as well as
the regular varsity team.
THAT EXPLAINS why Shaugnessy
came to Maryland. But it still
doesn't indicate why he left Stanford.
Although Clark didn't say so the un-
derlying reason probably originates
with the Federal Government ban
on crowds of over 5,000 in West Coast
areas. This will undoubtedly have a
telling effect on Pacific slope athletic
events. Perhaps Shaugnessy, taking
the long range viewpoint, decided
that West Coast athletics are in for
a decid-ed de-emphasis. And perhaps
he is right.
Mann's Stars
To Participate
In DSAC Meet
The Detroit Athletic Club will re-
vive the swimming season tomorrow
night, staging the DAC Invitational
Exhibition Meet to give the Motor
City its biggest natatorial attraction
of the year.
A Michigan freshman and three
tankers from the Wolverine Big Ten
championship crew will be among
the featured performers.
Jack Patten, Dobby Burton and
Gus Sharemet are the Varsity men
who will show their wares, while
yearling Harry Holiday has been in-
vited for another duel with the sen-
sational Adolph Kiefer, this time over
the 100-yard backstroke course. Kie-
fer beat Holiday in the National
AAU's in the world record clocking
of 1:30.5 for the 150-yard distance.
The DAC's own Bill Prew, who tied
the world mark of 51 seconds in the
AAU meet, will face Patten in the
100-yard freestyle, with Allen Ford
of Mercersburg Academy, the boy
who established a new AAU 220
standard of 2:09.3, an additional en-
try. Burton and Sharemet are en-
tered in the 50-yard freestyle against
the still great Otto Jaretz.

Golfers Leave
ForFirst Tilt
Linksmen Meet Kentucky,
Ohio State On Jaunt
Coach Ray Courtright announced
yesterday the traveling squad that
would journey southward on the an-
nual spring trip to do battle against
the University of Kentucky and the
Buckeyes of Ohio State.
Four men will accompany "Corky"
to Lexington where the Wolverines
will meet the Blue Grass linksmen
tomorrow. The quartet of golfers
that left at six o'clock this morning
include three veterans and a flashy
newcomer that shows plenty of prom-
ise. Ben Smith, Bob Fife, and Dave
Osler, returning from last year, will
receive plenty of support from Chan
Simonds, latest addition to the var-
sity golf team.
Captain John Leidy; who is stay-
ing behind to make up some back
work, will lead a second contingent
to Columbus tomorrow where they
will join their teammates Monday in
an eight man match against the
Scarlet and Gray aggregation. In ad-
dition to Leidy, the second group is
made up of four up and coming soph-
omores: Fred Brewer, Phil Marcellus,
Bill Stewart and Bill Ludolph.
Although the golfers turned in very
disappointing scores last weekend,
Coach Courtright said that they have
been hitting the ball a good deal
better of late. Earlier in the week
Simonds carded a 78 and on Wednes-
day shot even better to score a 76.
Shooting in the high seventies this
week, Leidy has been playing a con-
sistent game, while junior Ben Smith
has been pacing the team with his
usual brand of brilliant golf.
Courtright had no easy task in
picking the men to go with Captain
Leidy to Ohio State for four or five
other squad members have exhibited
a good deal of ability on the fairways.
Wayne Wolfe, Bill Courtright, Bill
Coale, Jacques O'Donnell, and Bill
Brooks all have the stuff to win
themselves a varsity berth.

DETROIT, April 16.-(P)-The
rebounding Toronto Maple Leafs
squared the Stanley Cup hockey se-
ries at three games by crushing the
Detroit Red Wings, 3 to 0, before 13,-
153 spectators tonight for their third
successive victory. The deciding game
will be played Saturday at Toronto.
The Leafs scored the winning
marker in the second period when
young Don Metz slipped home a
sneak shot, but Bob Goldham and
Billy Taylor made it certain with
goals 32 seconds apart in the third
period. Goalio Walter (Turk) Broda
meanwhile kept the weary Detroiters
in check for the first shutout of the
In coming back after dropping the
first three games, the Leafs made
hockey history tonight by tying the
series. Because of its dash and hustle,
the Toronto club now is a prohibitive
favorite to clinch its first cup, sym-
bolic of world hockey supremacy,
since 1932.
Curiously, there wasn't a single
penalty in the sixth game of the
what had been a rough and tumble
series. There wasn't even a first class
fist fight faintly reminiscent of the
fourth game here when Manager
Jack Adams of Detroit swung at Ref-
eree Mel Harwood and drew a sub-
sequent suspension,

First Period-No score. Penalties:
