Facing a tested and tried group of
Iowa, baseball players, coach Ray
Fisher's inexperienced squad takes
to the field this afternoon at Iowa
City, in the Big Ten opener for both
Although the Michigan nine has
had comparatively little opportunity
for outdoor practice, having been
hampered by the cold weather and
muddy field, the team has rounded
into shape during the past week,
showing, a prowess both in the in-
field and outfield that promises no
good for opposing batters. With a
strong outfield consisting of Don
Lund, Paul White and Bob Wiese,
Who are not only potent in the field-
ing slots but are going to be counted
on to provide batting strength, coach
Fisher's possibility for turning out a
team comparable to last year's, is
very good.
Batting Uncertain
Batting is the one respect in which
the squad has been unable to find
itself as yet, having been able in
practice games, to make only scat-
tered hits, and these with no regu-
larity. Fisher seems to have no con-
sistent hitter this year, although it
is expected that Paul White, who
was among the league leaders last
year, will return to his old form when
he has had more opportunity.
Iowa will face a Michigan nine
which is made up almost entirely of
newcomers, or non-letter winners,;
while the Iowa team is composed of
seven previous lettermen, one squad-
nan of last year and a sophomore.
Two of the Iowa lettermen are Cap-
tain Harold Lind, right field, and
Tom Farmer, second base, who were
members of the squad which last
year held the Big Ten champion-
ship jointly with Michigan.
Fresh, Sophs on Nine
On the other hand the Michigan
nine has on it five sophomores and
at least one freshman, Dick Walter-
house, who will hold down first base.
It is possible that Bob Nussbaumer,
left fielder and a potential hitter of
great power, may also see action dur-
ing the game. Key to the Michigan
strength will be the three man pitch-
ing staff which remains intact from
last year.
Pro Boim, colorful junior, who was
responsible for several of last sea-
son's most successful games, will
take the mound in the encounter this
afternoon, and tomorrow's game will

probably find Mickey Fishman pitch-
Although it is difficult to predict
the outcome of today's gamendue to
the fact that Iowa did not play
Michigan last year, the probability
is, that with both teams conceded a
strong chance to retain the title
again this year, it will not be a dull
game to watch.

Doherty Not
Decided on
Penn Team
Despite a wealth of material to
choose from, Varsity Coach Ken
Doherty is faced with an unusual
problem as he points his Wolverine
cindermen for the Penn Relays at
Philadelphia April 24.
The problem, not a serious one,
will be solved only after the Michi-
gan coach has accustomed his men
to the outdoor wind and air. And this
is not expefted for another two weeks
of intensive practice.
Doherty's Problem
Here's the problem. Doherty is
faced with the task of deciding in
which of the six relays at the Penn
meet he will enter his best runners,
and whether or not he will concen-
trate them in a few events or work
toward average strength in all races.
The make-up of the two-mile team
is, of course, not a problem. Doherty
will enter the same team of Captain
Dave Matthews, Bob Ufer, Ross
Hume and John Roxborough that
burned up the indoor circuit without
suffering a defeat.
Five Relays Possible
Doherty pointed out that he can
put together good teams in five re-
lay events, but not all at the same
time. The problem will be to substi-
tute slower men in relay events where
Wolverine superiority will not be
threatened too much.
The four-mile team's make-up is
almost certain to consist of Captain
Matthews, Bob Hume, Ross Hume
and Ernie Leonardi. Both Ross and
Matthews are in the two-mile quartet,
but may be able to turn in creditable
performances if there is sufficient
time between the two events.
Sprint-Medley a Question
The make-up of the sprint-medley
is problematical. At present the team
is composed of Ufer in the quarter,
Matthews in the 880-yard run and
two of the following four men-Len
Alkon, Jack Martin, Chuck Pinney ar
Bob Gardner-in the two 220-yard
Ufer would be the logical choice to
take the opening 440-yard dash of
the distance medley, but competition
in the other two events would prevent
that. So Doherty will probably 'run
Willie Glass in the quater with Rox-
borough on the 880-yard lap, either
Bub Hume or Leonardi on the three-
quarter, and Ross Hume on the mile.

the 1943 golf squad took advantage
of the perfect weather conditions to

of the season on the 17th of this

Ludolph and Coach Courtright form-
ed one of the foursomes on the
course yesterday afternoon. Smith
and Ludolph were paired against
Bob and "Corky." Although it was
Ben's first appearance on the links
this season his 38 going out and 35
on the back nine, gave him a 73 that
helped him and Bill defeat the coach
and Fife.
This intra-squad match was only
a -small part of the group out for
practice. Bob Welling, Paul O'Hara,
and Duncan Noble were out for their
daily practice rounds. "Bonny" Bon-
isteel had his usual good direction
and power in his wood shots. Pro-

"It looks like this is his year,"
prophesied Coach LeRoy Weir while
discussing the promising tennis career
of Fred Wellington, one of the top
three men on this year's net squad.
Although Wellington's court his-
tory has been comparatively nil, as
yet, Weir feels he have always had
all the potentialities of a good player.
His serve, an American twist, is one
of the stronger points of his game,
and since he has recently made a
tremendous improvement in his net
game, which he was formerly in-
clined to shy away from, he now has
what Coach Weir considers a "well-
rounded game."
Was Number Seven
Last year Michigan's present num-
ber-two netman was seveneth on the
squad, but being but a sophomore on
a team composed largely of seniors,
his name wasn't too frequently seen
in the summaries. According to Well-
ington himself he went along to the
matches "just to play bridge." But he
did manage to play enough to win his

in high school after making an un-
successful tray at base1 all. He goes

played basketball for Ann Arbor high.
Wins State Doubles
In 1940 when he and Roger Lewis
won the state high school doubles
championship for Ann Arbor high
they had to defeat another present
team mate, Louie Telbizoff, who is
now in eleventh spot. Representing
Monroe high school, Telbizoff and his
partner, Marvin Ott, had won the
crown the year before and Wellington

Crisler Pleased
As Grid Squad
Grows Larger
Coach "Fritz" Crisler was still
beaming as the Maize and Blue foot-
ball team trotted onto the gridiron
in their fourth practice of the
spring workouts still in full force.
In fact, according to Hank Hatch,
the equipment manager, there were
several r candidates at yesterday's

Two New Plays
Yesterday's session consisted of the
same fundamentals of wind sprints,
individual blocking, and charging, but
the stress was put on the execution
of plays to give the boys a little idea
of cooperation, which will be needed
in the coming scrimmages.
Crisler introduced two new plays
yesterday, and as the players are
rounding rapidly in shape, that old
gleam can be seen in the eyes of
Professor Fritz and it's a good guess
that the first scrimmage is not far

encounters. It seems that, due to the

Battles for Top
The Ann Arbor resident is now bat-
tling it out with Lewis and captain
Jinx Johnson for supremacy on the
squad. He is likely to run into more
difficulty than some of the others
in adjusting his game to the outdoor
courts, which, with less than two
weeks to go before the opening match
at Michigan State, have yet to be
used by any of the varsity netters.

Last night the finals were held in
the fraternity handball tournament
at the IM and the Sigma Chi's
proved their superiority by taking
the title honors.
The Phi Delta Theta fraternity
took it on the chin from the Sigma
Chi's, but they made the winners
take their crown the hard way. It
was Samble and Burke in the singles
for Sigma Chi beating Seaver and
Snider for the Phi Delts. Metzger
and Kollette were the winners for
Sigma Chi in the doubles match,
opposing Comb and Crawford of the
Phi Delts.
Sigma Alpha Epsilon took third
place from the Alpha Mu fraternity
by default.
John Scopis of Michigan House
won the championship of the Resi-
dence Halls as he defeated Walter
Szkarlet who represented Fletcher
Hall. Leonard Berman of Chicago
House captured third place in a win
over Arthur Vogel of Chicago House.

Tigers Read
To Play Pirates
This Saturday
EVANSVILLE, Ind., April 8.-(RP)-
The Detroit Tigers staged one of
their last full-scale workouts today
as a tuneup for an exhibition sched-
ule that calls for 10 games in 10
days starting this week-end.
Half of the 24-player squad leaves
tomorrow under coach Al Vincent for
Muncie where the Tigers engage the
Pittsburgh Pirates Saturday in the
opener of a seven-game spring series
between the two clubs.
The other 12 will drill tomorrow
under Manager Steve O'Neill before
meeting the Pirates in a return game
here Sunday.
On the way home, Vincent's squad
will stop off at Terre Haute Sunday
to meet the Minneapolis Millers of
the American Association. Paul
(Dizzy) Trout, a native of nearby
Sandcut, whose suburbs, he says, in-
clude Terre Haute, will hurl Sunday.

Harry Holiday, who has broken
world records in the 100-yard and
200-meter backstroke this year,
will try for the American mark
in the 150-yard individual medley
today at the Detroit A.C.
Harry should not have much
difficulty in bettering the record
time of 1:34, for he is a remark-
ably versatile swimmer. As a
freestyler he tied for first place in
the 50-yard distance in the first
Michigan-Ohio State meet.

Contributed by the MICHIGAN UNION

(,)- The Cleveland Indians ham- A
mered out 13 hits today-a new high
for their practice game season-and
defeated the Indianapolis club of the
American Association 7 to 1.
After being held to four hits and
one run in four innings by Johnnyt
Hutchings, formerly of the Boston
Braves and Cincinnati Reds, the
Tribe slugged Bob Logan, ex-Chicago
Cub southpaw, for nine blows in the
last four rounds.
Paul Calvert worked the first three
innings for the Indians and allowed
three hits. Vernon Kennedy, who
hurled the middle three, yielded four
hits but no runs, and Jim Bagby per-
mitted no one to reach first base in
the three stanzas he pitched.
VINCENNES, Ind., April 8.-(AP)-
With rookie Dick Culler collecting
three singles and a double, the Chi-
cago White Sox blasted the George
Field Soldiers 9 to 1 today.
Joe Haynes held the soldiers to one
run off seven hits in six innings
while the Sox built up four runs.
They came through for five in the
eighth as freshman Ed Hanski, the
semi - pro pitcher who replaced
Haynes in the seventh and yielded
only three blows, led off with a

FRENCH LICK, Ind., April 8.-
(P)- Only Clyde McCullough and
Lou Novikoff were in the Chicago
Cubs holdout ranks today after
chunky Eddie Stanky, the Milwau-
kee shortstop who was voted the
American Association's most valu-
able player last year, signed on the
dotted line. Stanky came in from
his home in Mobile, Ala., admitting
he had done little conditioning be-
cause of bad weather. He had nego-
tiated three weeks.



Goalie Gets
Shutout in
Finale Win
BOSTON, April 8.- (P)- With
Johnny Mowers, their all-star goalie,
turning in his second shutout in as
many nights, the high-powered De-
troit Red Wings tonight clinched the
Stanley Cup, hockey's most prized
trophy, in four straight games by
out-scoring the Boston Bruins, 2-0,
before a 12,954 crowd at the Boston
As was the case in the three pre-
vious games, the Red Wings were so
far superior to the war-riddled Bru-
ins that the action throughout was
decidedly one-sided, despite the fact
that the victors were out-shot by a
30-18 margin.
Scores Unassisted
Both of the Detroit scores, by Joe
Carveth in the first period, and Carl
Liscombe early in the second session,
were unassisted affairs. Carveth
beat Bill Cowley, Boston's all-star
center and Hart Trophy winner, to
a loose puck in the center zone. With
one Bruin back to challenge him, he
raced in and zinged a 15-foot shot
through goalie Brimsek.
Liscombe's solo effort, which gave
him his 14th playoff point and en-
abled him to equal the record shared
by Cowley and Don Grosso, his De-
troit teammate, had its start when
the Wings broke up one of the few
really effective five-man rushes the
Bruins organized during the entire
game. He broke out of a Detroit
corner, sped down the left sideboards
and, after swinging around the de-
fense, rifled a 1-foot angle shot into
the opening Brimsek left in his net.
When they chalked up that tally,
the Red Wings concentrated on their
defenses to enable Mowers to go
through his second whitewashing job
in 24-hours.

After a day of snow and
weatherman had a change
yesterday, giving Crisler's
a perfect practice session.
