Chamberlain's Timely Homerun
With Bases Full Clinches Game
(Continued from Page 1)
man, hit a hot grounder through Chamberlain's legs and the usually reliable
Whitey Holman opened the same gate when the ball came into left field,
with the result that Metzger reached third. The situation was alleviated
when Metzger was forced at the plate a moment later. However, Bob Jenk-
ins, who reached second on the play to the plate, scored on a single to give
the Broncos a 1-0 lead.
Michigan duplicated their generosity of the fourth inning by giving
Western Michigan another unearned run in the fifth frame. A combina-
tion of two walks and a wild throw to first gave the Broncos their second
run, by the end of the fifth inning.
The game seemed on ice for Western Michigan by the time the eighth
inning rolled around. Anderson had been keeping the Wolverine bats
strangely silent and there were no signs that he would let up during the
last two innings. But after George Harms had flied to center, Anderson
suddenly became very wild. He hit Bill Cartmill, who was batting for Fish-
man, on the neck. After Nelson reached first on an error, Anderson walked
Holman to fill the bases.
The Broncos' infield was backed up for a double play, but all in vain,
as Don Robinson walked, forcing in Cartmill with the Wolverines' first
score of the game. Anderson was able to get two strikes on Chamberlain
but when he tried to sneak the third one across, the fence-busting third
baseman hit his long home run.
With the scoreZ-2 going into the last half of the ninth, the Broncos put
on a rally that came close to tying up the ball game..
The Game Highlights: Don Robinson came up with a sparkling back-
handed stop in the ninth inning to pull Dick Savage out of a real hole . . .

Golfers Reveal
Great Promise
Even In Defeat
By BUD LOW
Although far from mid-season
form, the Wolverine golfers learned
much while swallowing the bitter
pill of experience when they took it
on the chin from both Kentucky and
Ohio State over the past weekend.
Coach Ray Courtright's charges
went down to anything but an ig-
nominious defeat at the hands of two
teams who have had the benefit of
a great deal more practice. This is
not meant to provide an alibi for the
team-on the contrary, it is meant
to bring out the fact that the Varsity
shows great promise of better things
to come later in the season.
Opponents Had More Practice
Both Kentucky and the Buckeyes
have been out on the fairways for a
good many more weeks now, while
Michigan has had to sit back and
wait for warmer weather. Now that
Ann Arbor has finally blossomed
forth into spring, the Wolverines
should improve as the weeks go by.
One thing that definitely has to
be corrected before the next match,
which by the way is with Michigan
State at East Lansing this coming
Saturday, is the definite letdown that
each of the players experienced in
the best ball matches at Columbus.
Golfers Wear Pajamas
An interesting high light of the
Buckeye match was the fact that
the Michigan golfers wore their pa-
jamas underneath their regular golf
attire. This was due, not to any
superstitions fostered by any mem-
ber of the squad, but because of the
penetrating, cold winds.
Particular bright spots of the
southern trip were Ben Smith's 75
at Kentucky and 72 at Columbus,
in addition to Chan Simonds excep-
tionally good 75 and 74, respectively.
Both carded some near sensational
scores considering that they played
on two strange courses under ex-
tremely unfavorable climatic condi-
tions.

Netters Depart
For Road Tilts
Six-Man Team Will Face
Badgers, Illini, Purdue
By DICK SIMON
Michigan's tennis team takes to the
road at 1:37 p.m. today for a series
of three matches on foreign courts,
beginning tomorrow with Wisconsin
at Evanston, Ill. On Friday the net-
ters will face Illinois at Champaign,
Ill., and Saturday they meet Purdue
at Lafayette.
These three matches are very im-
portant as far as the Conference is
concerned, since the seedings for the
Big Ten meet in Columbus, May 14,
15 and 16 are determined by the
number of victories each man scores
in his own bracket in Conference
competition. Last year five of, the
six singles players and two of the
three doubles teams got top seedings,
when the Wolverines won their first
Conference tennis crown.
Coach Leroy Weir put the six-man
team; which he is taking on the trip,
through an all-afternoon workout.
And as a result, the net mentor has
switched his doubles lineup some-
what. Instead of Co-Capt. Wayne
Stille and Gerry Schaflander playing
as the number one duo and Co-Capt.
Lawton Hammett and Jim Porter
as the second team, Stille and Ham-
mett have paired off, while Porter
and Schaflander worked as a unit.
During yesterday's practice, Weir
matched the two new combinations
and they went at it tooth-and-nail.
When the smoke had cleared away,
the co-captains had dropped a three
set battle, but nevertheless had
shown up quite well considering it
was the first time they had played
together.
After this match, Weir said he
would probably start the team lead-
ers at one doubles and Porter and
Schaflander in the second spot, but
that he would keep his singles lineup
intact.
Those making the trip include
Hammett, Stille, Porter, Schaflander,
Tom Gamon and Alden Johnson.

Former Grid
Star Returns
On Furlough
Tall, smiling, likeable Harlin "Whit-
ey" Fraumann, the man who covered
one of the end positions for the Wol-
verines last fall, came back to Ann
Arbor in a Navy uniform yesterday.
Fraumann, who along with former
wrestling coach Cliff Keen, and Bob
Flora, tackle last season, has com-
pleted a month's training at An-
napolis under the direction of Major
Tom Hamilton, is now a full-fledged
ensign and is on furlough. He stated
that he will be used as an instructor,
in both physical and military school-
ing of cadets in the new naval V-5
program.
He recently met Don Siegel, a for-
mer Wolverine tackle, who is taking
post graduate work at Annapolis,
and according to Fraumann, Siegel'
has really goneplaces of late. The
Navy has taken Don around the
world, the last stop before arriving
in Maryland being Trinidad.
Whitey expects to be sent to the
University of Iowa to join Bob Flora
in the cadet training program, but
says that he may be put on a ship at
any time. He likes the work and is
looking forward toward taking his
place in national defense.

Choice Of Drake Relay Quartets
Puzzles Track Mentor Doherty

By BOB STAHL
Unlike most other track meets,
which always turn into a morass of
"angles" as far as pre-meet doping
of the outcome is concerned, Michi-
gan's outdoor season opener in the
Drake Relays Friday and Saturday,
presents a morass of question marks
to the pre-meet prognosticators.
With the meet only three days
away, the selection of the men
who will make the jaunt to Des
Moines still remains a question mark
to Coach Doherty. And even after
the squad is selected, Doherty will not
be certain of which men to enter in
each event until he surveys the rest
of the field when, he gets to Drake.
Many Track Entries
The most puzzling question mark
which looms before any prognosti-
cator, however, lies in the great num-
ber of contestants comprising the rest
of the field. One of the biggest an-
nual round-ups of track talent in
the nation, the Drake Relays at-
tracted over 1500 contestants last
year, and even though the war will
undoubtedly cut into the number of
entrants this year, the thousands of
fans expected to witness the mam-
moth festival will still see over 1,000
athletes in action. Naturally, then,
anyone trying to dope out the results
of the meet would have to take into
consideration the entire list of en-,
trants.
Michigan will find its most puz-
zling question marks in the compo-
sition of each of the six relay teams
which will carry the Maize and Blue
colors into the meet, and much of
the Wolverines' chances for victory in
any event depend on which men run
in each event. With most of the
power on the Michigan squad cen-
tered around the sprints, the Wol-
verines' best chances for bringing
home a title probably lie in the sprint
relays.

time recorded by any Wolverine mile
relay quartet during the past in-
door season was the 3:21 mark which
Buel Morley, Johnny Kautz, Al
Thomas, and Bob Ufer turned in
against Notre Dame to establish a
new meet record for the event. With
baton-passers also entered in the
two-mile and four-mile relays at
Drake, however, Coach -Doherty will
need Kautz for one of these, so that
George Pettersen will probably re-
place Kautz for the mile sprint.
Bob Ufer, Michigan's ace quarter
miler, reported for practice this week
with a bad leg, but continued to run
during the training sessions. He ran
a record breaking 660 yard run in
1:18.6 despite the handicap of the
sore leg. According to Coach Doherty,
if the soreness persists during the
coming weekend, he will not enter
tfer in the Drake relays.
