Wings Beat Bruins, 6-2, in First Game of Stanley Cup


Bruneteau and Abel
Lead Detroit to Victory

Two Ex-Yanks Bolster Indian Lineup

Wolverines Continue Practicing
For Opening Tilt Against Iowa

DETROIT, April .-(A'I)-Detroit's
rampaging Red Wings streaked
through Boston for six goals, gavel
the Bruins a sound 6-2 thumping,
and climbed the first notch toward
possession of the Stanley Cup in the
first game of the final series before
12,562 gleeful fans in Olympia Stadi-
um tonight.
The Bruin was a weary, fightless
animal tonight, and it was pure De-
troit speed that provided the real
fighting. The Wings pounded home
three goals in the second period to
take a 4-1 lead, then added two
more in the third and coasted to the
Bruneteau Gets Hand
Cheering hometowners gave their
loudest ovation to Modere Fernand
"Uruneteau, Manitoba wing known as
"Mud," who banged in three goals for
the coveted "hat trick." Mr. Mud
tbhereby became the first Red Wing in
history to pierce the nets three times
ia cup game.
If Boston had a hero he was Art
Jackson, their Toronto wing, who
bagged the first goal at 18:53 of the
first period and spear-headed the
Brttin attack most of the night. Ab
Demarco drilled another one past
Goalie Johnny Mowers at 17:53 of
the last period but by that time the
verdict was sealed.
Abel Thrills Crowd
Bruneteau's feat will enter the rec-
ord books, but Capt. Sid Abel pro-
vided the night's thrilling moment.
Moved up by manager Jack Adams
to the center position on his first
line, he dashed after a loose puck at
1iid-ice late in the second period.
Six 'feet ahead was 32-year-old Har-
yey (Busher) Jackson. Black-haired
Sid passed Jackson at the blue line,
-stole the puck, and skated in to score
unassisted. Brimsek was helpless.
Detroit scored first in every per-
iod and almost at the same moment
eacli time. In the first period, de-
fenseman Jack Stewart got one after
75 seconds had elapsed; in the second
Bruneteau had one 72 seconds after
the intermission; and in the third
Bruneteau did it after 81 seconds
had ticked off.
Abel Takes Honors
Abel led the chase for scoring hon-
ors with five points on a goal and
foir assists. Brimsek made 37 saves,
Mowers 25.
Boston will remain in Detroit for
the second game of the four-out-of-
seven series here Sunday night.

The Wolverine baseball team
played their sixth consecutive intra-


squad game yesterday under
Ann Arbor skies, and if the

Armstrong To
Face Beau Jack
NEW YORK, April i.-(IP)-The
Hammer comes back to Madison
Square Garden tomorrow night for
the "biggest fight" of his life.
Gone are the three championships
he once held and there's no title on
the line this time as he tangles in a
ten-rounder with strong, tough young
Beau Jack, the kid he once taught
how to fight. But to the Hammer, it's
the most important brawl in all his
career, because he wants to show the
"wise guys" that he's not a washed
up old man.
The Hammer, of course, is Henry'
Armstrong, Li'l Perpetual Motion of
a few years back when he was boss
man of the welterweights, the light-
weights and the featherweights-the
only man in ring history to hold three
crown simultaneously. Two years
ago, the experts wrote his fistic
"obit." They said he was through for
keeps after Fritzie Zivic beat him up
twice in a row. Everyone believed it
except the Hammer.

Cinder Squad Begins Practice
For ComingOutdoor Season

weather continues the Michigan nine
will not be at such a great advantage
when they open the season against
Iowa one week from today.
The Hawkeyes have been practicing
outside for several weeks now, and
this Saturday against Upper Iowa
they will start a liheup that will in-
clude eight veterans. This game will
be the opener for the Iowans and
Coach Waddy Davis expects to shift
his lineup around in order to field the
best possible team against Michigan
in the opening Conference game.
Fisher Drills Squad
Meanwhile, Coach Ray Fisher is
still drilling his Maise and Blue squad
on fundamentals at the Ferry Rield
diamond. Yesterday Fisher used vet-
erans Pro Boim, Mickey Fishman, and
Bill Cain on the mound along with
freshman Dick Drury, a local boy
who looked mighty fine when he had
his control.
The pitching was just fair as Bob
Stenberg, Dick Walterhouse, and
Don Lund led the hitting attack with
several hits apiece. The fielding was
better than average considering the
fact that the team has had less than
a week's practice outside. Lund was
very impressive in centerfield, while
in the infield it was Howie Wikel and
Stenberg who shone at short and sec-
ond, respectively.
Swanson Behind Plate
Behind the bat Elmer Swanson
seems to have the catcher's position
well in hand and should be the likely
candidate for this spot when the sea-
son begins. It wasn't so long ago that
Elmer Gedeon won letters in both
baseball and track, and it looks like
Swanson will repeat the feat of his
namesake for he has already won his
letter in track.
After the game, Fisher himself took
the mound so that his charges could
have additional batting and fielding

practice. Ray used to pitch for the
New York Yankees and shades of
his old form were visible as he winged
the sphere across the plate.
Christianson Out
It was also learned yesterday that
Wayne Christianson, a veteran sec-
ond baseman from last year, is forced
to give up baseball because he expects
to be drafted the first of May, and in
order to receive all his credits for
graduation he will have to have all
his work for the semester completed
by the time he leaves school.
New Additions
Planned for
PEM Courses
Plans are now being made to in-
crease the present obstacle course
for PEM students at the University
of Michigan.
Coach Clarence Munn is chairman
of the committee on this obstacle
course and he is being assisted by
coaches Earl Martineau and "Ben-
nie" Oosterbaan.
The obstacle course at Ferry Field
is built on smooth grass, is 120 yards
long and 16 feet wide. The present
course will be increased to 350 yards
with the addition of these new ob-
stacles. Most of the added obstacles
will be under the Army Air Corps
plan. Work on these additions will
start within a few days.
The object of this course "is to
make it tough enough, yet safe
enough to prevent injury," said
Reactions Good
Munn feels that the reactions of
the student body and Army men to-
wards this program have been very
good. He also mentioned that an,
effort would be made to time each
student and give them a chance to
better each obstacle.
The obstacles encountered by PEM
students on the presenlt course are
the regulation hurdle, four foot
fence, a crawl under, a seven foot
wall, a nine foot ditch, a zig-zag or
balance, consisting of three twelve
foot sections of planks, six inches
wide and twenty inches off the
ground. Five yards beyond is a thir-
ty-six foot maize requiring the boys
to change directions four times and
allowing twenty inches between,
posts. The last obstacle requires a
boy to climb a rope to a ladder four-
teen feet off the ground, and then
go on hands from rung to rung, com-
ing down a rope on the other side.
Record Time
The record time for this obstacle
course is held by Alex Canja, Matt

OSU Favored
To Take AAU
Swim* Crown
NEW YORK, April 1.-VP)-Ohio
State's swimmers, headed by two boys
from the Hawaiian Islands, Bill
Smith and Keo Nagama, will try to
make a clean sweep of the nation's
major swimming championships in
the National A.A.U. indoor meet at
the New York Athletic Club's pool
tomorrow and Saturday.
The Buckeyes, holders of the 1942
A.A.U. outdoor team title, have won
the Big Ten and National Collegiate
A.A. team championships this year,
With a 16-man team, topped by
Smith, holder of world records for
220, 440 and 880 yards freestyle, and
Nakama, defending champion and
meet record holder at 440 yards, Ohio
State is favored to win this one, too.
Strong competition is expected, how-
ever, from Yale's defending cham-
pion team and from Michigan.
In all, 96 swimmers representing 21
clubs, colleges and schools as well as
the Army, Navy and Coast Guard
have entered the two-day meet. The
220-yard freestyle, 220-yard breast-
stroke, one-meter dive, 300-yard in-
dividual medley and 400-yard free-
style relay will be contested on Fri-
day and the 100-yard and 440-yard
freestyle, 150-yard backstroke, three-
meter dive and 300-yard medley relay
on Saturday. Trial heats will be held
in the afternoon each day and finals
at night.
Defending champions, besides Na-
kama, are Yale's speedy freshman,
Alan Ford, in the 220; two Yale relay
teams and Chief Sepcialist Adolph
Kiefer of the Norfolk, Va., Naval
Training Station in the backstroke
and individual medley.
Mann's star diver, and a non-ath-
lete, Lawrence Smith. Their time is
29 seconds.
When asked about the importance
of such an obstacle course, Munn
stated, "It has proved to be a good
conditioner as well as being interest-
ing to the students taking PEM."
Reds Beat Scrubs
BLOOMINGTON, Ind., April 1.-
(R)- The Cincinnati Red regulars
beat the scrubs today for the second
time, 6 to 3, in preparation for their
first games with the Chicago White
Sox in Louisville Saturday and Sun-

With the Big Ten Indoor Confer-
ence track title safely tucked away
for one year, Michigan's powerful cin-
der squad will begin tuning up Mon-
day for the coming outdoor campaign.
The outdoor season will officially
open April 24 when Coach Ken
Doherty sends a picked team of
trackmen to the famous Penn Relays
in Philadelphia. There had been
some question previously as to
whether the team would attend the
Penn or Drake Relays. Doherty's de-
cision to attend the Penn Relays will
give the Wolverines an opportunity
to remove several of the team marks
set up by Eastern teams.
Only dual meet on the outdoor
schedule is scheduled for May 1 at
Champaign with the University of
Illinois trackmen.
Michigan fans will have just one
chance to watch their Maize and Blue
cindermen in action. On May 8
Ohio State and Michigan State will
come here for a triangular meet.
There will be much interest in this
meet, since the Buckeyes are defend-
ing outdoor champions.
Coach Doherty's squad will close

the short outdoor campaign on May
15 and 16 at Evanston, Ill., with the
Big Ten Outdoor Conference meet.
Michigan unseated Ohio State in the
Indeer meet last month and will be
out to turn the trick again.
Since Doherty has not given up
any of his key athletes to the armed
services, the Maize and Blue squad
can conceivably repeat its one-sided
victory of the indoor meet at Chicago
March 5-6.

Major League Highlights

All hail the ATO's, newly crowned
basketball champions of the frater-
nities, and well they deserve this
Last night against a valiant Al-
pha Delta Phi five the Alpha Tau
Omega's won their laurels by a
31-22 score. Howard Wikel, Rudy
Smeja and Paul White of the
ATO's and Stratton Brown of Al-
pha Delta Phi were the stand-outs
last evening in a game which fea-
tured almost everyone on each
side sharing the spotlight for a
few minutes.
Howie Wikel, an almost "sure bet"
to win a post on the varsity baseball
team, garnered the top scoring hon-
ors for the evening with the fine
point total of 14. Brown of the
Alpha Deltas was top scorer for his

team and placed second to Wikel
with Rudy Smeja of the ATO's, who
also popped eight points through the
On looking through the ATO
lineup one would think that there
had been a printer's error because
of the men represented on it---on
It were members of the baseball
and football teams. Rudy Smeja
was one of the stalwarts on the
Maize and Blue pigskin group last
year and Paul "Whizzer" White,
the Captain-elect of next year's
footballers, was also one of the
outstanding stars. Paul also dou-
bles on baseball along with Wikel
and as you can plainly see it
wasn't any wonder that the ATO's
won with all of these fine athletes
playing for them.

Cubs Beat Sox, 4-2
FRENCH LICK, Ind., April 1.-
(P)- Jimmy Wilson, Chicago Cubs'
boss, was chased off the bench first
and then off the field by umpire Art
Pasarella today as the Bruins came
from behind to beat the White Sox,
4-2, and square their informal spring
training series at one-all.
Wilson's banishment came in the
fifth inning after Stan Hack, who
had singled, was tossed out trying to
steal home.
Three walks given up by big Bill
Lee, a fly ba)l and a forceout gave
the Sox a run in the first inning.
They added another in the third
when rookie Thurman Tucker
reached first on Stu Martin's fumble,
stole second, and scored on Guy
Curtwright's single.
The Cubs counted in the third on
Len Merullo's triple and Hack's sin-
gle. They added two more in the
fifth, on a triple by Dom Dalles-
sandro, singles by Claude Passeau
and Hack, and an error charged
against Luke Appling.

Dean Works with Browns
1-- ()- Paul Dean, new acquisition
to the St. Louis Browns' pitching
staff, worked like a combination of
"Dizzy and Paul" for two innings of
his first practice game today, strik-
ing out two batters and holding the
others hitless.
But in the third he gave up three
hits and a run. He said afterward,
"I didn't have a thing but I'll guar-
antee you my arm will be all right.
It feels fine."
The intra-squad game ended in a
2-2 tie.

Cooper Returns to Lineup
CAIRO, Ill., April 1.- (P)-Morton
Cooper, who said the condition of
his injured back was improving,
pitched for two innings in a St. Louis
Cardinals' practice game today. Al-
though he was scored on twice, Coo-
per had good speed and seemed to
be working with more freedom.
Rookie Harry Breechen, who fol-
lowed Cooper, doled out only one hit
in four innings to help Coach Mike
Gonzales' squad to a 5 to 2 victory
over Coach Buzzy Wares' team.
