Today; First




Noble, Burke Hold First Two
Places; Varsity Hopes To Win

Michigan's golf team opens the
1944 season at 2:15 p.m. today at the
University Golf Course against the3
University of Detroit.
The match was to have been play-
ed on Saturday, April 15, but it was
cancelled because of rain. Bad wea-
ther has not only delayed the first
match, but it has been the major fac-
tor in hampering the golf practice
Coach Ray Courtright announced'
last night the starting line-up that
will tee off against the Titans. He
said that these boys have played the
best golf at the present time, but this
foursome is not permanent, and will
be replaced by other members of the
team. The Wolverines' golf mentor
remarked that it was very tough to
choose the team, but these boys have
hit their stride before the others.
Noble Has Number One Spot
The Michigan team is as follows:
number one position is held by Dun-
Giants Whip Braves
As Big Three Stars
NEW YdRK, April 20.--(i')-Mel
Otti Ernie Lombardi and Joe Med-
wick-the New York Giants' Big
Three-each clouted a home run to
pace the New Yorkers to a free hit-
ting 10-8 victory over the Boston
Braves today and a clean sweep of
their three-game series.
Medwick also made three other
hits, including a double. Johnny
Rucker chipped in with three hits.
Scoring five runs in the first in-
ning, the Giants kept right on hitting
to give pitcher Cliff Melton an 8-2
lead going into the eighth inning, but
the Braves shelled the tall lefthander
from the mound in the ninth. Catch-
er Klyde Kluttz knocked in three
runs for the losers.

can Noble, number two spot by Ken
Berke, he is followed by Tom Messin-
ger, and Bob Welling is number four.
The Tital lineup in respective order
is Bob Ryan, Dick King, Harold Sa-
dowski, and Adam Nowicki.
The contest is not a Conference
match, and is being scored onthe
Nassau Point System. The maximum
number of points that one team can
earn is 18. In the course of the match
the golfers will be vying for individ-
ual and best ball honors. Three points
will be given for individual honors,
that is, man against man; making a
total of twelve points. In best ball

play the numbers one and three, and
two and four men are pitted against
each other; and the winners receive
three points; bringing the best ball
total to six points and the grand to-
tal to 18.
Team Is Not in Top Shape
Courtright said that the team is
not in the best shape, and the out-
come of the match will depend on
which team receives the breaks.
Saturday the linksman play North-
western at the University GoV
Course. The best ball matches will
start at 8:30 a.m. and the single mat-
ches start at 1 p.m. Coach Court-
right has not decided who will be the
starters against the Wildcats.

Tennis Squad
Meets Western
This Saturday
With Saturday's opening tennis
match against Western Michigan on-
ly a day away, Coach LeRoy Weir's
well-equipped tennis squad is com-
pleting a series of intra - squad
matches designed to determine who
will hold the top positions on the
team for the coming season.
Jinx Johnson, number one man on
last year's squad, Roger Lewis,
NROTC trainee, and veteran of the
1943 varsity, and Jim Froelich, a new-
comer to the squad, are the three
contenders for top honors. In a ser-
ies of matches which have been in
progress all week, Weir has been
endeavoring to determine how his
players should be ranked.
Although these three men are cer-
tain choices for the first three places,
in undetermined order, the last three
slots are being hotly contested.
There are at least seven men cap-
able of playing Big Ten tennis, and
since 'Weir must eliminate four of
them, the play this week has been
spirited. After today's practice Weir
will make his final selections for Sat-
urday's match.
The Western Michigan match will
be held at Kalamazoo on outdoor
courts, weather permitting, which
will be a decided handicap to the
varsity netters who have been forced
to play indoors during these first few
weeks of practice.

Iine Opens Against Fort
Custer at Army Field
Wolverines Must Be at Playing Peak Although
Soldiers Are Hampered by Lack of Practice

Kicking Out-of-Bounds Outlawed by Pro Clubs.. .

PHILADELPHIA, April 20.-(A)-
The out-of-bounds kickoff, target of
much criticism in football. recently,
was, in effect, outlawed by profes-
sional clubs at the National Football
League's spring meeting today.
The League also legalized coaching
from the sidelines..

The kickoff rule provides that the
ball must be handled by the receiving
side before it can be put into play.
A penalty of five yards for the kick-
ing team is stipulated for each kick
that goes out of bounds or does not
travel at least ten yards.

Baseball Coach Ray Fisher yester-
day began to apply the finishing1
touches to his squad which will make
its diamond debut tomorrow in a
doubleheader against Fort Custer at
the Army base field.
Lengthy batting practices, fielding
drills and intensive work with the
pitching staff, interspersed with a
five-inning practice game, were the
order of the day. At the conclusion
of the workout, Fisher appeared sat-
isfied that his team was ready for
the formidable Custer nine.
Wolverines Must Be at Peak
Advance reports indicate that the
Wolverines will have to be at their
peak if they wish to get off to a win-
ning start. Every member of the Ar-
my nine has come up through the
ranks of semi-pro or professional
baseball, and a few of the more out-
standing stars were slated for Ma-
jor League roles before the war inter-
Chief threat for Custer is Corporal
Bill Evans, a pitcher, who last year
finished the season with the very
impressive record of 15 wins against
only two losses and two ties. Evans
has six years of pro ball behind him,
a good share of it in AA competition.
His battery mate, Sergeant Harry
Wang, is also coach and manager of
the team and has had plenty of big-
time experience. The other members
of the outfit are all capable perform-
ers and should stack up well.
Hampered by Lack of Practice
Fort Custer has been hampered all
spring by a lack of time for practice
since all the men are on 10-hour du-
ty. Most of their workouts have tak-
en place at night indoors under
With such stiff competition in the
offing Fisher expressed confidence
that his charge would make a good
showing. He is well satisfied with his
first-string infield of Elmer Swan-
son at first, Charlie Ketterer at sec-
and, Mike Farnyk or Bob Nussbaum-
er on third, and Bruce Blanchard
holding short.
Bob Stevenson has also caused
much favorable comment from Fish-
er' with his first-class work behind
the plate. Stevenson is a steady re-
Athletics Shut Out
By Early Wynn, 5-0
WASHINGTON, April 20.- (AP)-
Early Wynn shut out the Philadel-
phia Athletics with two hits here
today while his mates combed the
efforts of Russ Christopher, Jack
McGillen and Carl Scheib for ten
hits to give Washington a 5-0 victory.
This was Wynn's eighth straight win
over Connie Mack's crew.
The Senators jumped on Christo-
pher in the fifth. Case, Myatt and
Spence singled. Ortiz tripled but
Spence was trapped between third
and home. Kuhel doubled and in
came McGillen to Christopher's res-
cue. Torres singled, scoring Kuhel.

ceiver and possesses a strong throw-
ing arm. In addition, he promises to
be one of the team's leading sluggers.
Newcomer Plays in Left
The outfield has newcomer Bill
Gregor in left and lettermen Don
Lund and Bob Wiese in center and
right respectively. Elroy Hirsch will
probably take over in the latter spot
against left-handed pitching. All
four can hit and cover ground well.
Starting pitchers for tomorrow's
twin-bill will probably be Bo Bow-
man and Hirsch, who have shown the
most effectiveness in practice to date.
Other possibilities include Dick
Schmidtke, Al Willers, Denny M'an-
ko, and Jack Hackstadt.
Yesterday's intra-squad tilt went
only five innings because Fisher was
afraid the chilly weather might in-
jure the arms of his pitchers. Six
pitchers saw action in the abbreviat-
ed contest and only Bowman escaped
with a spotless record as the first-
stringers pounded out a 12-4 deci-
sion over the seconds.
Hirsch Nicked for Four Runs
Hirsch worked two frames against
the regulars and was nicked for four
unearned runs on two hits, two er-
rors, and a base on balls. This mark-
ed the first time that the big chuck-
er has been scored on this season in
Bowman went only one inning and
retired the side in order. His control
appeared much improved as he took
only seven pitches in putting three
men down. Fisher indicated that his
ace would be ready to go Saturday
after watching the brief perform-
Blanchard carried off hitting hon-
ors for the day by knocking out a
double and a triple in two trips to
the plate. He also walked once and
stole a base.
Second-string catcher Bill Hixon
was forced to retire in the fourth
inning when he suffered a split fin-
ger while trying to save a wild pitch.
Detroit Takes Third
defeat by browns
DETROIT, April 20.-(IP)-The St.
Louis Browns remained perched atop
the American League standings today
by hanging a third straight defeat on
the Detroit Tigers, 8 to 5, to sink
Detroit deeper in the League cellar.
Vernon (Junior) Stephens, whose
homer and fly beat Detroit in the
first two games of the series, ham-
mered a double and a single and
drove in three runs to lead an 11-hit
attack on three pitchers. Lefty Hal
Newhouser and Joe Orrell gave up
all eight runs in the first four inn-
ings, and 40-year-old Elon (Chief)
Hogsett blanked the Browns on three
hits the rest of the way.
Newhouser, who lost 17 games last
season, was charged with the defeat.
Singles by Hal Epps, George Mc-
Quinn and Stephens along with a
passed ball scored two runs in the
first inning, and Stephens belted a
two-run double in the third after
Newhouser had walked the first two

AFTER JOHHNY GREENE, second string Michigan tackle for the past
two years, revealed Wednesday night that he had signed to play pro-
fessional football with the Green Bay Packers, the news came out of
Philadelphia yesterday that he was among the list of players drafted by the
Detroit Lions.
The confusion may be the result of the new pro rulings passed
Wednesday night, but when we attempted to reach Greene yesterday
we discovered that he was out of town for the week-end, so we will
have to wait until Monday to discover which team he will eventually
Paul White, the Wolverine's 1943 captain, was also drafted by the Lions,
and Merv Pregulman, All-American tackle, was the Packers' first choice.
Pregulman, who received his ensign's commission from Columbia's Midship-
men School last week, was the only lineman to be picked as first choice by
any of the teams.
PRIVATE MIKE DANN, who was known as the only man ever born
putting a silver spoon in his mouth when he was associate sports ed-
itor of The Daily two years ago, is now temporarily serving in the Public
Relations Office at Fort Custer, and in view of our baseball game with
Fort Custer Saturday, he sent us this story about the soldiers' probable
starting hurler.
It happened when Evans was pitching for Charlotte in the Piedmont
League, and the day's opponent happened to be Norfolk,,managed by ever-
popular Tony Lazzeri. With the score 3-1 in his favor Evans walked the
first two men to face him in the eighth, bringing Lazzeri to bat.
He blazed two strikes past the i letters on Tony's uniform, but
Lazzeri caught the third one on the nose, driving it out of the park and,
according to Evans, into the Atlantic Ocean, a mile away. After that
Evans swore never to try to sneak a third strike past "Push-'em-up"
until he was led up to the plate by a seeing eye dog. From then on
Evans seemed to do all right, and last year won 15 while losing two.

Cooper Ready To
Play Against Pirates
ST. LOUIS, April 20.--(P)-Morton
Cooper of the Cardinals, who was
injured in an exhibition game last
week, said he was ready and asked
for the pitching assignment against
the Pittsburgh Pirates today. That
was a mistake on his part.
The ace righthander was knocked
out of the box in the seventh inning,
although the Cardinals went on to
win for George Munger, 5 to 3.

Brook1yn1 Dodgers
Whip Phillies, 8-2
PHILADELPHIA, April 20.-()-
Led by outfielder Augie Galan, who
made four hits, the Brooklyn Dodgers
hammered out 14 hits off four Philly
pitchers today, and took the rubber
game of the three game series from
Philadelphia, 8 to 2.
Although tagged for 13 hits, Lefty
Fritz Ostermueller tightened in the
pinches, leaving 14 futile Phils on
bases, for his first success.
