falter as his opponents picked up
strokes on the final nine, then he
recovered sufficiently to take the title
as Smith and Daltas fought it out
for runner-up honors. At the end
of the 13th hole, and only five more
to be played, the champion was four
up on the other two.
McCarthy cracked temporarily and
three-putted the next two holes as
the Wolverine gained three strokes.
Then on the 17th fairway, with Smith
only a . single stroke behind, the
lanky Floridian had a stroke of bad
lVck when his tee shot landed behind
a row of trees. This cost him two
strokes, and Smith had to be con-
tent with a tie for second when Dal-
tas failed to sink a short putt on the
last green.
Varsity Leads By Stroke
The Varsity started the day with
a one stroke advantage over the
Buckeyes, but at the end of the
morning round they were tied with
935 while Minnesota trailed by seven.
shots. The lead changed hands sev-
eral times until finally the Wolver-
ines won out as the Golden Gophers
edged out the Scarlet and Gray squad
by one to tally 1,258 to the Buck's.
"Big John" Leidy ended his Con-
ference career in a glorious manner
by playing four consistantly good
rounds to take fifth place behind
Ilhini captain, John Holmstrom. Leidy
shot a 77 in the forenoon and then
came. back in the last 18 holes to card
a 76 and finish with 307, one stroke
behind Holmstrom.. The Maize and
Blue captain's game never has been
better, and it was his steady playing
that br'ought victory to Michigan as
each of the other Wolverines faltered;
under the terrific strain.
Chan Simonds was probably the;


most consistent player among the 43
contestants entered when he fin-
ished with 320. Shooting a pair of
80's on Monday, Chan had a 79 yes-
terday morning and an 81 in the
afternoon, to end up in 15th place
among the individual scorers. Dave
Osler and Bill Courtright finished
with 325 and 326.
Finishing behind third place Ohio
State were Northwestern with 1,265
and Illinois who had 1,275. Wiscon-
sin carded 1,297 as Indiana had 1,306
to finish seventh. Purdue and Chi-
cago finished in that order as they
tallied 1,388 and 1,413, respectively.

Varsity Nine To Play Great Lakes

AND so the sports year comes to an
end. After tonight's baseball
game with the great Lakes Naval
Training Station, only two diamond
tilts with Ohio State, May 29 and 30,
will remain on the Wolverine sports
calendar for 194 1-42.
The contest tonight symbolizes
more than anything else what has
happened to the world of sport dur-
ing the year. Michigan no longer
confines itself to playing other col-
lege crews: it now battles men in the
uniform of Uncle Sam in order to
raise money for Army and Navy re-
lief funds and to encourage enlist-
Tonight's baseball game is the
first athletic contest between Mich-
igan men and Uncle Sam's men.
But it won't be the last. In the
fall, the Maize and Blue football
team will open the season against
the Great Lakes grid outfit here
Sept. 26. Last year, Coach Fritz
Crisler's pigskin warriors started
off against Michigan State. Later
in the season, the gridders will
meet Bernie Bierman's Iowa Avia-
tion Commandos.
NO MATTER where you look in the
t sports mirror, you see the effects
of the war. Not only has Michigan
expanded its athletic schedules to
find place for the service outfits, but
it also stands to lose many of its
coaches and athletes to a nation at
Wrestling Coach Cliff Keen has al-
ready joined the Navy and is train-
ing airmen in the huge Navy physical
fitness program. Backfield Coach
Earl Martineau will leave for duty
with the Marines around the first
of next month. There have been
many rumors that Athletic Director-
football coach Fritz Crisler would
soon become head gridiron mentor
at Great Lakes. Halfback Tippy Lock-
ard is in the Army Air Corps, while
wrestlers Mel Becker and Tom Sparks
are with the Marines.
That old college spirit is still
here, but that much older U.S.
1-M Picks All-Star
Pitcher len Atkins (Phi Delt)
heads the all-star fraternity baseball
team chosen by the Intramural De-
p,,rtmecnt yesterday,
John Mikulich (Sig Ep) composed
the other half of the battery, while
the infield is made up of Cliff Straeh-
ley (Chi Phi) at first, Jimmy Glick
(Pi Lambda) at second, Bill Mikulich
Sig 'Ep) at short and Bert Hodder-
son (Pi Lambda) at third.
Ralph Gibert (Chi Phi), Phil Reid
Chi Phi) and Bob Feinberg (Pi
Lambda) were chosen to patrol the
a11-star outfield.

spirit is still stronger. As the war
continues there will be a marked
decrease in the emphasis placed on
college athletics, and a marked in-
crease in the emphasis placed on
physical fitness for all. Tonight's
game with Great Lakes is part of
the trend, and the new physical
hardening program here at Michi-
gan is still more of it. It does seem
funny to see what a war can do to
the world of sport, doesn't it?
There may be a Wolverine Var-
sity baseball team this summer .--
it all depends on whether or not the

sity will face all season. Of eight
men in the lineup, excluding the
pitcher, every man is batting at least
Only one glance at the batting or-
der tells the reason. From top to
bottom every player was a former
major or minor league star before
coming to Great Lakes. Leading
Cochrane's squad in hitting is Don
Padgett, former star outfielder of the
St. Louis Cardinals, with an average
of .429.
Coach Fisher has named his sopho-
more ace, hurler, Irv "Pro" Boim to
start on the mound against the Sail-
ors in this evenings battle. For
Great Lakes, "Black Mike" will prob-
ably pitch either Jim Reninger or
Don Dunker. Reninger is from Tor-
onto of the International league while
Dunker was the leading pitcher in
the Big Ten last year. He was the
only Conference hurler to halt the
Wolverines in the 1941 season.
Paul White Injured
Tommy Higgins might replace Paul
White in right field tonight as the
"Whizzer" pulled a muscle in his leg
in the second game against Chicago
Monday and Fisher doesn't want to
take any chances of a further in-
jury. This would .hurt the Wolver-
ines as White is one of the longest
hitters on the squad.
The lineup for the Great Lakes
nine for this evening's encounter will
probably be Frank Baumholtz, Cf
(.340, Cincinnati farm club); Bennie
McCoy, 2b (.333, Philadelphia A's);
Joe Grace, rf, (.393, St. Louis
Browns); Padgett, If; Ernie Andres,
3b (.375, Louisville Colonels); John-
ny Lucadello, ss (.300, St. Louis
Browns); Chet Hajduk, lb (.310,
Chicago White Sox); Frank Pytlak,
c (.308, Boston Red Sox). Present
batting averages and former teams
are given in parentheses.
Michigan Leads Big Ten
As a result of last weekend's vic-
tories, Michigan is now in first place
in the Big Ten with nine wins against
one defeat while Iowa ranks in sec-
ond place with 10 victories and two
loses. Michigan ends the season
with two games against Ohio State on
May 29 and 30 with the Wolverines
heavy favorites to sweep the series
and the Conference title.
