Newhowser, Overmire Go Distance

EVANSVILLE, Ind., April 8.-(!P)-
Dutroit's three game winning streak
was snapped today by the Pittsburgh
Pirates who scored two runs in the
eleventh inning to defeat the Tigers,
4 to 2, in the opener of a five game
exhibition series.
Detroit amassed a two-run lead be-
hind the superb pitching of south-
paw Hal Newhouse, who fanned eight
Pirates in five innings, but in the
eights inning outfielder Jim Russell
belted a two-run inside-the-parker
homer off Stub Overmire to tie it up.
Then in the eleventh, the Pirates
clustered three singles off Overmire
for the winning runs, although an
error by shortstop Eddie Mayo, his
third of the game, let in what proved
to be the winning marker.
Newhouser and Overmire went the
distance for Detroit, and Manager
Frank Frisch used southpaws Arthur
Cuccurullo and Johnny Gee before
Xavier Resigno, a right-hander, ar-
rived on the scene in the tenth in time
to become the winning pitcher.
Gee, six foot, nine inch former Uni-
versity of Michigan athlete, was im-
pressive while blanking the Tigers
for five innings on four hits. The
Pirates paid $75,000 for Gee five years
ago and it looks like he finally is
about to pay dividends on the in-
The best pitching performance,
however, was Newhouser's. After
yielding eight runs on 16 hits in his
last two starts, Newhouser was very
baffling to the Pirates today. He
struck out the side in the second in-
ning after fanning two in the first,
and he picked up single strike outs in
each of the last three innings he
worked. He walked one and allowed
two hits.

CHICAGO, April 8.--(A')--Chicago

Prospects for the coining baseball
season were considerably brightened
yesterday afternoon, as Coach Ray
Fisher's diamond charges moved out-

was charged with only two misplays,
the last of which broke up a possible
twin killing.
There was only one double play in
the entire game. This came in the
third frame when Phelps hit directly
to the pitcher, Who in turn threw to
Ketterer, cutting the runner off at
second. Both Tommy King and Art
Renner looked good at the initial
sack. King had a fair day at the
plate, dropping in a Texas Leaguer
and stealing home in the top of the
ninth. His chances, although numer-
ous, were on the whole easy, while
Nusbaumer was a near-casualty in
the ninth when he caught one of

continued with the game. The most
surprising man in the tilt was little
Willies at short, who measures no
more than 5'6" at the plate.
Fisher termed yesterday's practice
"a pretty fair workout," and stated
that the value of the game was to
get the players acclimated to the
new outdoor conditions. He said a
definite proof of the batters' adapt-
ing themselves to the different kind

The highlight of the three-hour
session was an intra-squad game,
with the beginning of the practice
being suent in a warmup. During
this limbering up period, Fisher
worked particularly with pitcher Dick
Schmidtke, considered the best of the
present crop of starters by virtue of
his good control.
The intra-squad tilt was played be-
tween the Reds and Blues, and went
ten innings before Fisher called it in
the bottom half of the tenth. At that
point, third-baseman Bob Nussbaum-
er had just broken up the ball game
with a double which cleared the bas-
es, sending the Blues to a 13-11 win.
Bush Suffers Injury
The starting lineup for the Blues
consisted of Denny Manko pitching,x
Elmer Swanson catching, Art Ren-
ner on first, Charley Ketterer on se-
con, Bruce Blanchard at short, Nuss-
baumer at third, Bob Wiese in left,
Elroy Hirsch in center, and Bob Ren-
nebohm in right. Substitutions in-
cluded Passman and Renner as hurl-
ers, Rex Wells at first, and Bush atx
the catching position. Bush suffered
an injured finger in the first half of
the ninth and Swanson returned to
the game.
Eicher started the game for the
Reds, with Bob Stevenson doing the
catching. Tommy King was on first,
Mike Farnyk on second, Kell at short,
and Keith Phelps on third. In the
field, Nelson started in left, Don
Lund was in center and Jack Spence
was in right. Ralph Strem showed
a great deal of speed but very little
control; he came in for Eicher in the
bottom half of the third, and was re-
placed by Phi] Breitmeyer in the
ninth. Other substitutions included
Brazel in the catching job and
"Memphis" Willies at short.
Farnyk Stars at Plate
The Blues drew first blood in the
second inning, but trailed from the
third inning until the winning tally
came across the plate in the tenth.
Farnyk was the hitting star of the
game, getting three singles and a
double out of six trips to the plate.
Ketterer also turned in an impressive
performance, collecting a single, a
double, and two walks. It was -his
hard-hit single through third that
set off the first scoring spree. Nuss-
baumer also hit a single in addition
to the ten inning double which broke
up the game.
Lund. Stevenson, Strem, Blanchard
and Wells collected doubles also.
r Wiese, besides turning in a good
game in left, came through with a
triple and a bunt single. The fact
that hurlers were rather ineffective
was reflected by the abundance of
walks given up. Blanchard received
three free passes in five times at bat.
Execute One Twin Killing
The large number of errors was
pretty fairly distributed among the
players. Wells was the only man who

Coaches, however, are expected to
oppose the suggestion. Their respon-

they do not cherish the idea of being

Reds Down Cubs
LOUISVILLE, Ky., April 8.-(W)-
The Cincinnati Reds defeated the
Chicago Cubs today in an exhibition
game, 10 to 3.
The Cubs, or at least a lot of guys
wearing Cub uniforms, were set down
by two rookie pitchers, Tomas de la
Cruz, who worked six innings and al-
lowed two hits, and Arnold Carter.

Surpassing the track record of 37,-
284 set on the opening day three
years ago, 45,796 fans taxed every fa-
cility of the compact Long Island
track and poured more than $2,601,-
836 through the machines to ap-
proach the world betting record for
seven races of $2,852,414 established
at Jamaica last fall.
But when it came to selecting the
winner of the six-furlong Apumonok
they neglected the five-year old son
of St. Germans from Mrs. Payne
,Whitney's Green tree stable and
backed William Woodward's smooth-
striding Apache into 7-5 favoritism.
Apache, who with the Devil carried
topweight in the field of 10, flattered
his backers until the final sixteenth
and then gave way as little Ted At-
kinson brought the Greentree ace
from behind to win by one and one-
half lengths.

ies opener today.

W. D. McLEAN, a grocer
on State Street, was sus-
pended last week for 30
days from selling processed
foods and canned meats.
The action was taken by
the regional OPA for vio-
lating price ceilings in 65
instances. Mc Lean was
placed on probation last
November and is now char-
ged with selling rationed
goods as mudh as 14 cents
above the ceiling price. He
said that wartime condi-
tions, his fire in 1942 and
his poor memory were all
to blame for the violations.
A Detroit report stated
that the grocer would give
his store plus $5,000 to
anyone who would take it.
But McLean later stated
that his offer was that he
would sell the store for
$5,000 less than its value to
anyone able to run it in

continue to take short-
cuts across the grass. Said
he, "In a few years, the
campus would resemble a
desert in the summer, dry
and dusty, and in the rainy
seasons, it would be swam-
py. . . But there is no need
for our campus to become

ful as it is capable of being.
