Riding on the crest of a six match
winning streak Michigan's tennis
team will play host to a gang of
sharpshooters from Michigan Normal
at 3 p.m. today on the new Har-Tru
courts at Ferry Field.
Not much is known about the boys
from Ypsilanti except that they are
captained by Vic Marcomastro and
that one among them, namely Walt
Lepisto, beat Gerry Schaflander last
year in the number five singles
match. In other meets this year

E'ROM WASHINGTON, out of the
mouths of many adept and re-
spectable Congressmen, there have
come scorching criticisms of the
Navy's policy of selecting former
stars in the world of sport to train
the aviation cadets. According to
these legislative gentlemen, the ex-
athletes are not fit to handle the
task assigned them and should be
fighting in the front lines instead.
It's too bad that these civilian critics
couldn't have been at the luncheon
yesterday while Fraumann was ex-
plaining the job and. status of the
Wolverine Squadron.
That the former collegiate stars
are fit to lead the aviation cadets
cannot be questioned. If anybody can
get a man in A-1 physical shape, who
can do it better than an athlete
who has devoted practically his whole
life to getting in shape and staying
there? Surely, Congressman Joe
Doaks doesnt feel that he is suited
to drive a gang of young college
graduates through the stiff paces
necessary to get them in the physical
condition desired by the Navy.
And these same Congressional
fault-finders who are claiming
that the men selected by the Navy
don't have tha intelligence neces-
sary to command a group of col-
lege men are forgetting another im-
portant factor. They are complete-
ly ignoring the fact that Fraumann
and the rest are cllege graduates,
not a bunch of ex-pugs as they
caustically call them. If they could
have seen and heard Fraumann
leading the discussion yesterday,
the Washington Wolves would have
silenced their outcries.
Perfectly at ease, Fraumann out-
lined the progress of the Wolverine
Squadron to his intent audience. He
was sincere, friendly and patient--
and he was representative of men
the Navy has picked to physically
liuarde nthe te d uini s. The Wash-
ington lobbyists would do better to
stick to legislation-the Navy has the
right type of man for the important
physical condition phase of the war
effort.

days . . . he is stationed at the

but felt it his duty to contribute

he hit a long triple into center field
to score Davey with the first run.
Bob Stenberg, who started his first
game at second base, followed with a
sharp double down the left field line
to send Chamberlain across the plate.
Paul White, next up, appeared to be
out on an easy infield play, but when
the second baseman, George Sulli-
van, threw over the first baseman's
head, the Whizzer was safe and
Stenberg came racing home. Berge-
sen ended the frame with a fly to
center.
Michigan appeared to be on the
road to an easy victory, but the
Broncos weren't to be tamed so
quickly. They bounced back in their
half of the second to score four runs
and take the lead, 4-3, on three
walks, two singles and an error after
two were out.
Lead Changesj
The lead changed hands again in
the third inning as the Varsity
counted twice. Robinson drew a pass
to start the inning and went to sec-
ond when relief pitcher Ed Ruchala
threw badly to first trying to catch
the blond sophomore off the bag.
Robby continued to bother the
hurler and stole third base. Ruchala
couldn't find the plate and also
walked Wayne Christenson, who had
replaced Stenberg. Coach Fisher
sent Bill Cartmill in to bat for White
since the Broncos were using a lefty
on the mound and the "Wheel" de-
livered with another of his timely
blows as he hit a single into left to
score Robinson.
Fishman Singles
After another out and a walk,
Fishman singled to drive in Chris-
tenson, but Cartmill was out on a
close play at the plate which ended
the rally with Michigan out in front,
a-4.
Western drove Fishman from the
hill in the fifth when he issued two
free passes in a row. Dick Savage
took over for Michigan, but he also
walked the first two men to face him
to give the Broncos a tally. Pitcher
Ruchala then pu't on the squeeze
play to bring Sullivan in from third.
Broncos Coast In
From then on Coach Charlie Ma-
her's nine wasn't to be headed as
they scored twice in the sixth, once
in the seventh and twice in the
eighth. Michigan put on a short
rally in the last of the ninth in try-
ing to wipe out the six-run lead that
the visitors had built up, but the
Wolverines could garner only two
runs.
Michigan gets a well-deserved rest
today before meeting Hillsdale Col-
lege there on Thursday.

From St.o.id Cardinals
CINCINNATI, May 5. ThP- 'he
New York Giants have purchased
Bill Lohrman, lanky righthander,
from the St. Louis Cardinals, travel-

Giants announced here today.
Lohrman was sent to the Cards
with catcher Kenny O'Dea and a
wad of cash in the deal which brought
first baseman Johnny Mize to the
Giants last winter. He won nine
and lost 10 for the Giants last sea-
son and had an earned run average

-- BULLETIN
MUSKEGON, May 5. -(1P)-
Milo Sukup, former University of
Michigan athlete who was appoint-
ed head football coach at Grand
Rapids Union High School last
week, will be called up for immedi-
ate examination for Army induc-
tion, his draft board chairman an-
nounced here today.
the day will be Bob Westfall, cap-
tain and fullback of the 1941 Wolver-
ine team which won six games, lost
one and tied one.
Lineups Announced
The lineups for Saturday's game
have been announced by Coach Cris-
ler, and there is little to choose be-
tween the Blues, coached by Line
Coach Biggic Munn and Backfield
Coach Earl Martineau, and the
Whites, coached by End Coach Ben-
nie Oosterbaan and Freshman Coach
Wallie Weber.
Neither team has the advantage
of having the team captain playing
with it, for quarterback George Cei-
thaml will not be among those pres-
ent. Cy will be in Chicago over the
weekend.
Sure Winner
One player who is sure to play on '
the winning team is left half Frank
Wardley. With Tomn Kuzma and
Don Robinson both showing no in-
dications of fading next fall, tail-
backs have been encouraged to try
their hands at one of the other posts.
The result is that there are only
three left halfs to pick from for the
game, and therefore Frank finds
himself in the unusual position of al-
ternate tailback for both teams. And
if either Pat Keefe, Blue speedster,

cause it wasn is best performance in
competition this year. Surprisingly
enough, his score was good enough
to swamp Henry Timbrook, last year's
runner-up in the Indiana state ama-
teur championships by seven strokes.
Stewart Cards 75-73
Sophomore Bill Stewart was an-
other man who put forth his best
effort of the year when he carded
a 75-73-148, which was especially
noteworthy considering that this is
his first year of competition.
Captain John Leidy showed con-
siderable style in the best ball match
when he was teamed up with Ben,
Smith, and he shot a 75. Continued
practice seems to have improved
Leidy's game to a great extent be-
cause just before the match lie did
27 holes in 3 under par, -which will
spell trouble for future opponents.
Courtright, Long Drives
Bill Courtright, strong armed
wrestler, gave the Hoosiers an eyeful
when he slammed out the longest
drives of the day. He also shot a
nice 70, or par score in one 18 hole
round, which coupled with a 76 on
the other 18 holes gave him a 146,
and second lowest 36 hole round of
the day.
The Indiana meet was the last
match that the Wolverines play away
from home, and was an excellent ex-,
ample of the improvement of all
members of the squad.

By GEORGE KOZLOFF
The big question of the Michigan-
Ohio State track meet Saturday is
Captain Bud Piel. With the Buck-
eyes strong favorites to win, the
speedy captain's services are abso-
lutely necessary, according to Coach
Daherty. Doherty added, however,
that he was quite certain that Bud
would run.
The problem developed around the
foot injury that Piel developed at the
Drake Relays a couple of weeks ago.
Entering the Illinois meet last week-
end with a slight limp, he ran two
fast races in the 100 yard dash and
in the 220. He won two second places
in the events for the Wolverines.
After the meet Bud left the track
with a very painful foot that has
bothered him continually since. He
has worked hard all week to cure the
ailment. But to no avail, for yester-
day afternoon the sore 'foot was
"worse then ever before."
Piel himself, however is positive
that he will run Saturday against the
Ohioans. It seems evident that Piel
got many of the bad breaks of the

current season. He virtually ran ev-
cry race this year with some sort off
handicap to his fast form. Early in
the season he had a pulled muscle in
his thigh which hindered him most of
the year. The ailment was corrected
and he looked forward to the out-
door spring meets.
This second injury, however, looks
like it will hold back Piel's aspira-
tions for the ipst of the season.
Even in his high school running
career he was hit by these track in-
juries. Running for Shortridge High
as a junior at Indianapolis, he in-
jured his foot early in the season,
thus putting him out of competition
before he could even get started.
His senior year proved the big onel
Bud led the Indiana school in the
state meet, breaking records in the
100 and 220. He also anchored the
half mile relay to give Shortridge
three firsts.
Both coach and captain are erlain
that he will run even with a sore fool,
because Michigan will need the points
that Piel can get, even with the
handicap.
