Mme. Chiang Rests
Before Conference
EN ROUTE EAST, April 14.-/P)-
Mme. Chiang Kai-Shek was sched-
uled to arrive today at a country
place on the Hudson River where
she planned to rest for a fortnight
before going to Washington to confer
with President Roosevelt.
A relapse in Los Angeles at the
conclusion of her official transcon-
tinental tour forced the wife of the
Chinese generalissimo to postpone
an earlier date set for a second
series of talks with the President.
It is probable the first lady of Chi-
na will go to Washington early in
May .
Tigers Close
Spring Camp;
Face Pirates
EVANSVILLE, Ind., April 14.-(P)
-With five weeks of training behind
them, the Detroit Tigers closed their
spring camp here today and headed
for Muncie to resume their exhibi-
tion series tomorrow against the
Pittsburgh Pirates.
A scheduled exhibition game with
the Minneapolis Millers of the Amer-
ican Association was canceled today
because of weather conditions, but
Manager Steve O'Neill nevertheless
herded his players out to Bosse Field
for a brisk workout.
All the pitchers except Tommy
Bridges, Paul (Dizzy) Trout and
Johnny Gorsica worked in batting
practice. They will hurl against thej
Pittsburgh Pirates tomorrow.
Bridges will start the game and,
O'Neill indicated, upon his perform-
ance depends his chances of drawing
the mound assignment in the Amer-
ican League opener. O'Neill's choices
have narrowed down to Tommy and
Virgil (Fire) Trucks, the club's top
1942 winner.
O'Neill put on the mask and pads
today to catch in batting practice
and took the opportunity to give
some batting advice to young Dick
Wakefield. The former Michigan
collegian is batting a fast .448 and
has driven in 14 runs in eight games,
but O'Neill still isn't wholly satisfied.
"You aren't pulling the ball to
right field, Dick," O'Neill said. "I.
you get your timing, you'll be a lot
more dangerous."

Harmon's followers haven't forgot-
ten his 21st birthday, Sept. 28. 1940,
the day that Michigan met the Uni-

day he breezed to four touchdowns

made three spectacular long runs

IM To Follow
Usual Spring
Sports Program
It was announced today that, with
the exception of horseshoes, the reg-
ular spring and summer intramural
events will be held this year, despite
the war.
There will be an all-campus golf
tournament beginning in a couple of
weeks. The varsity squad has bene-
fitted from this IM event in the past,
several of the leading linksmen tast-
ing their first college competition in
these matches.
Instead of the annual fraternity
tennis meet to decide the school
championship, an all-school indi-
vidual meet will be held because of
the lack of men to keep all the courts
in good condition. This tournament,
too, has donated its share of 'win-
ners to the tennis varsity.
Track will also receive its chance
to step into the spotlight, as the IM
meet gets under way in a few weeks.
The meet will probably be the last
major IM event that will be held this
spring, or for the next school term.
Earl Riskey, director of the IM sports
program, expects only a small group
of men to come out as compared to
last year.
One thing that is gratifying is that
the IM baseball leagues have full
schedules. If most of the men now
playing stay on campus for the re-
mainder of the semester these games
should lend real excitement to the
Scribes Predict
Flag for Yanks
NEW YORK, April 14.--()-Fifty-
six of the seventy-four scribes bal-
loting in the Associated Press annual
survey picked the New York Yankees
as the No. 1 team in the American
League despite the fact they have
been hit by the war as hard as any
other club.
~ The St. Louis Browns, who sur-
prised by coming in third last year,
figure to be second this year if the
scribes' arithmetic is correct. They
polled enough votes to lead in a close
race with the Cleveland Indians and
Boston Red Sox.
The order of voting: New York,
St. Louis, Cleveland, Boston, Detroit,
Chicago, Washington, Philadelphia.
There will be a meeting of all
members of the M-Club Thursday
evening at 7:30. All members are
urged to be present as the meeting
will be for the purpose of electing

WASHINGTON, April 14.- (P)-
Congressional sports enthusiasts said
today Marvin H. McIntyre, Presiden-
