Netmen Capture Three
Singles, Two Doubles
Meet Decided by Final Doubles Victory of
Boucher and Brown; Johnson Scores Upset

By HARVEY FRANK
Capturing three singles and two
doubles matches, Michigan's tennis
team opened its 1943 'season by edg-
ing out Notre Dame, 5-4, yesterday
on the Ferry Field courts.
The Wolverines won the number
two, three, and five singles, and the
number two and three doubles. The
meet was decided by the last match,
the third doubles, when Roy Boucher
and Merle Brown defeated the Irish
duo of Dick Doermer and John Haig
in straight sets, 6-3, 8-6.
In the top singles match, Michi-
gan's Roger Lewis played some of
his best tennis but couldn't match
the superior playing of highly-rated
*Jitmy Evert. Lewis took the open-
ing game in the first set and one
,qther when the score was 4-1 against
him, but then Evert took the next
eight games to win, 6-2, 6-0.
Johnson Scores Upset
Captain Jinx Johnson scored some-
thing of an upset by trouncing high-
ly touted Bobby Faught, Notre Dame
number two man, 6-4, 0-6, 6-1. The
first set was pretty even, but in the
second, Faught had things more or
less his way, and when he took the
first game of the last set, it looked
like he'd go on to win with ease.
However, Johnson then started
turning out his best brand of tennis,
capturing the next six games and the
match.
Roy Bradley, Michgian number
three man, scored the Wolverines'
mnost decisive win, beating John
Troup, 6-1, 6-4. Bradley played his
u;sual steady tennis, capitalizing on
the erratic play of his opponent.
In the number four singles match,

Ed Caparo of Notre Dame defeated
Fred Wellington in another upset.
Wellington, rated a chance to start
in one of the top three places for
the Maize and Blue, didn't seem to
get going until he had lost the first
set 6-1, and was trailing 2-0 in the
second. But then he battled Caparo
to nine up before losing 11-9.
Boucher gave Michigan its final
singles victory by conquering Doer-
mer in the fifth bracket, 6-3, 7-5.
In the second set the visitor took a
4-0 lead, but Boucher took the nex'
four, lost one, and then won the next
three games and the match.
In the final singles contest, Lyle
Joyce of Notre Dame defeated Fred
Sleator of Michigan, 6-3, 6-1. The
win for the Irish tied the meet up
at the timhe at three matches apiece.
Win Two Doubles
Then the Wolverines took the meet
by capturing two out of the three
doubles tilts. Lewis and Wellington
both beaten In their singles matches,
gave the number one Irish combina-
tion of Evert and Faught an un-
expected scare by taking the opening
set, 6-4. But then the visitors same
back to take the next two, 6-2, 6-2.
Evert put away placement after
placement with a beautiful drop-shot
and an accurate overhead to offset
the determined playing of the Michi-
gan duo.
Lewis and Bradley made them-
selves double winners by taking their
number two doubles tilt in straight
sets fr-om Toup and Caparo. They
were pushed to 7-5 in winning the
first set, but had too much for their
foes and won the"- second, 6-3.

'Penn Relays
This Afternoon
Doherty Expected To
Enter Boys in Four
Relays and Shot Put

has Michigan listed as competing in
six relay events, Coach Ken Doherty
is not expected to enter more than
four of the team relays this after-
noon and tomorrow at Philadelphia.

ter-mile relay championships. Mich-
igan will battle strong quartets from

nell, Fordham, Ohio State, Manhat-
tan, Syracuse and several service
teams. Finals are at 4:20 p.m. today.
Notre Dame, New York University,

lay quartet at 5:30 p.m. The same
schools have entered teams in the
spring medley at 6:34 p.m.
Kreager in Shot Put
Shot put trials and finals are

tain Dave Matthews, Bob Ufer, John
Roxborough and Ross Hume which
is unbeaten in -indoor competition.
If this quartet is beaten it will be an
upset.,
The four-mile team of Bob Hume,'
Ernie Leonardi, Ross Hume and
Matthews stands a good chance of
placing.

Golfers To'
Play Here
Tomorrow
By JEAN GASKELL
Michigan linksmen took advantage
of the excellent golf weather yester-
day to get in tune for the triangular
matches to be played here at the
University course with Notre Dame
and Michigan State tomorrow.
The five men who played against
Ohio State a week ago are certain
to play for the Wolverines in their
first home match. Captain Ben
Smith, Bill Ludolph, Bob Fife, Ros-
coe Bonisteel, Jr., and John Leidy
compose the quintet which will be-
gin play at 8:00 in the morning.
Four or five other golfers will sup-
plement these regulars. Duncan
Noble and Paul O'Hara will definitely
play. The other men will be chosen
from Phil Marcellus, Doug Beath,
John Bishop, and Bob Welling. The
definite number and playing times
will be decided as soon as it is learn-
ed how many men the Spartans plan
to use.
The match should show some
marked improvement in the play of
the entire Michigan squad. Most
members of the team have turned in
good score cards in the last two days,
and have proved to Coach Ray
Courtright that he was right when
he said all they needed was practice.
Smith's card of 33 for the nine he
played yesterday was the low for the
season thus far.
Coach Courtright was well pleased
with the return of Marcellus. Phil
was a letterman last year, and helped
the Wolverines to the Big Ten title.
He carded a 76 yesterday in his sec-
ond appearance on the links.
NEW YORK, April -22.--(IP)-
Probable pitchers in the Major
Leagues tomorrow:

son vs. Christopher (only game
scheduled).

Illinois Today, Saturday
Michigan Batters Get 12 Safeties While Five
Wolverine Hurlers Allow Normal Only 3 Hits

f

By BUD LOW
Climbing all over two Michigan
Normal pitchers for 12 hits and eight
runs, Michigan scored its third tri-
umph of the season, preparatory to
playing host to Illinois today and to-
morrow.
The Maize and Blue again received
three-hit pitching from two veterans
and three freshmen, and strangely
enough it was the rookies who held
the Hurons hitless. Bill Cain was the
starting pitcher for the Wolverines,
and in the two innings that he work-
ed he was nicked for two of the three
Ypsi safeties.
Don McIntosh came in to relieve
Cain in the third, and retired six
consecutive men before Dick Savage
came into hit for him in the bottom
half of the fourth. Savage pitched
two frames and then Coach Ray
Fisher lifted him in favor of Dick
Drury, who hurled the seventh and
eighth innings without allowing a
man to reach first. Dick Schmidtke
finished on the mound for the Var-
sity.
Michigan Gets Fast Start
The Wolverines got away to a fast
start in the first inning when they
tallied three runs on a single, a
double, a walk and a triple. Mike
Farnyk led off with a single to left,
went to second on a walk, and stole
third. Bob Nussbaumer doubled to
right center to bring Farnyk in from
third. Don Lund walked, and Bruce
Blanchard forced Nussbauner at

third. Dick Walterhouse then slam-
med out a terrific triple to deep right
to bring in Lund and Blanchard.
After two men were out in the
fourth, the Varsity scored two more
runs on a single by Howie Wikel,
Elmer Swanson's double, and a single
by Dick Savage.
Grieg Relieves Gabriel
Charlie Grieg came in to relieve
Dick Gabriel on the mound for the
Hurons at the beginning of the sev-
enth inning, and the Wolverines,
showing no favorites, pushed across
another tally. Charlie Ketterer drop-
ped a Texas Leaguer into short left
and then proceeded to steal second.
Wiese beat out a hit to second, send-
ing Ketterer to third. After Wiese
stole second Lund grounded to third
but was safe when Dave Skiba drop-
ped the ball at first. Ketterer scam-
pered home on the play.
The Wolverines again tallied two
runs after two were out in the eighth.
Swanson beat out a hit to short.
Fied Leemhuis grounded to the
pitcher, who lobbed it over Skiba's
head at first; Swanson took third
and Leemhuis went to second on the
play. Paul White then beat out a hit
to second, scoring Swanson and
sending Leemhuis to third. After
White stole second, Leemhuis scored
when the third baseman made a
bad throw to first on Ketterer's
ground ball.

By JOAN LINDSAY
With the baseball season just
starting, old fans thrill to the um-
pire's cry of "play ball;" sports sec-
tions are filled with articles on how
Joe Doakes is going to be the rookie
of the year, and that timeless argu-
ment: "will the Yankees win the pen-
ant?"
Each year baseball wins thousands
if new fans. The reason for their"
interest vary from being born in
Brooklyn to being exposed to the
game because Dad and brother just
have to hear the game every day on
the radio. Baseball isn't the easiest
game in the world to catch on to. One
of the most difficult tasks of the
newly recruited fan is to learn the
o1qrful vernacular of America's
favbrite game.

vocabulary of the rookie fan. (All
people who consider themselves edu-
cated in baseball lore and lingo
please stop here, because this article
from now on is strictly for begin-
ners.)
Annie Oakley was a great woman
shooter in her day but to the base-
ball fan that is a base on balls. The
term bean-ball is not to be taken
literally. It is a ball thrown close to
the batter's head. The place where
the pitchers warm up is known as the-
bull pen.
When a sport's announcer says
that one was "right down the alley,"
he means that the ball went right!
over the plate for a perfect strike.
The keystone sack is second base and
the keystone combination is short-
stop and second base.
A round-house has nothing to do
with the local railroad yards. To the
dyed-in-the-wool sports fan that is
a sweeping curve. When a fielder
nabs a liner off his shoetops that is
a shoestring catch. A Texas Leaguer
is a term heard time and time again.
It is a looping curve that drops safe-
ly between the infield and the out-
field.
With this start of a bit of the base-I
ball lingo coupled with some ele-
mentary knowledge of how the game
is played, the rookie will get as much
fun out of watching a baseball game
as anyone who has watched the game
for years.
Bronco Nine Upsets IlHini
KALAMAZOO, Mich., April 22.-
()-Warren Biddle, Eaton Rapids,
freshman hurler, turned in one of
the greatest Bronco pitching tri-
umphs in years when he handcuffed
an undefeated Illinois aggregation
today with three hits, with Western
Michigan College winning its opener,
6-2.
After the opening inning when
John Bero's error on Joe Vanre-
weghe's roller, a base on balls to
Boyd Bartley and Bernie Compton's
error at short on Tony Butkovich's
roller gave Illinois two runs, they
were helpless.

TIGERS 4, INDIANS 0
CLEVELAND-April 22.-(P)-The
Detroit Tigers squared their opening
American League series with the
Cleveland Indians at one game today
on Virgil (Fire) Trucks' four-hit
shutout, 4 to 0, featured by five suc-
cesive hits by the veteran Roger
(Doc) Cramer.*
In many ways, Detroit's victory
was the exact counterpart of Cleve-
land's 1 to 0 triumph in the opener.
While Trucks waxed stronger at-the
game progressed, 33-year-old Mel
Harder, bespectacled right-hander,
like Tommy Bridges 24 hours earlier,
wilted in the late innings and had
tough going.
The Tigers slammed Harder for
nine hits and three runs in the eight
innings he worked, and they nailed
langy Earl Center, rookie hight-
hander, for two hits and a run in the
ninth. Cramer singled each time he
came to the plate and scored twice.

ing the season's opening series at a
game apiece.
Passeaucpitched two-hit ball for
six frames, but weakened in the
seventh when the Pirates bunched
three singles and a pass for two runs
and a 3-3 tie. Pinch hitters Jim Was-
dell and Johnny Barrett singled
across the tying runs.
RED SOX 1, ATHLETICS 0
PHILADELPHIA, April 22.-()-
A line drive double by Pete Fox in the

duel before 4.553 at Shibe Park.

NEW YORK, April 22.-()-The
New York Yankees weren't able to
get their American League pennant
raised today, because of a broken
halyard on the centerfield flagpole,
but they managed to win their open-
ing game from the Washington Sen-
ators 5 to 4 before 5,860 fans.
It was Roy Weatherly, the little

Yankees' lineup by Joe Dimaggio's
entry into the Army, who nailed
down the victory.
