Netters Start Big Ten Season
Against Minnesota,_Chicago

The Wolverine baseball team with
two Conference wins over Iowa to
their credit already this week, face
the fighting Irish of Notre Dame with
right hander Elroy Hirsch on the
mound in the first of a two-game
series this afternoon at 4 p.m. at
Ferry Field.
The Notre Dame team is rated as
one of the finest in the midwest. In
the season's opener against Indiana
the Irish showed power at the plate
and finesse afield by taking a double-
header from the Hoosiers, 10-5 and
Martin Pitches Sut Out
The shut out was pitched by Navy
V-12 trainee, Bill.Martin, who is the
number one member of the mound
staff. Martin, who played in the De-
troit Federation, has had more ex-
perience than the rest of the Irish
Notre Dame took a two-game series
from Wisconsin, winning by the
close score of 2-1 in the first game,
and by blasting out ten hits and
profiting from the ten errors com-
mitted by the Badgers the Irish team
trounced them again, 8-1.
Rykovich Stars in Outfield
Notre Dame his a fine fielding
team as well as power at the plate.
In the outfield is Marine transfer
from Ilinois, Julius Rykovich who
starred at right halfback for the
Irish football team last season. In
the game against Wisconsin, Ryko-
vich got two long doubles and was
robbed of a home run by a spectac-
ular catch.
On the Illinois baseball team last
spring he batted in the clean-up
spot, but for Notre Dame his name
is seventh on the roster which shows
somewhat the hitting power of Jake
Kline's squad.
Gilhooley Shows Promise
Flanking Rykovich in the outfield
is a newcomer, Frank Gilhooley, the
son of the Frank Gilhooley, who,
while playing for the New York Yank-
ees in 1916 and "17, was generally
considered the fastest thing in the
American League and was a team-
mate of Michigan's coach, RayFisher.
Jake Kline, the Irish coach, says
that the boy has inherited his fath-
er's speed and fields very well, but

in tomorrow's contest. Against Wis-
consin last week, Zieminski allowed
only two hits in the game which Notre
Dame won, 8-1.
Behind the plate is one of the two
veterans on the Irish team, Tommy
Sheehan whom Coach Kline defin-
itely considers a major league pros-
Another member of Frank Leahy's
grid squad, Bobbie Klein, is playing
the shortstop position for his secnd
In preparation for today's game the
Wolverines went through a light bat-
ting practice yesterday.
Coach Ray Fisher was well pleas-
ed with the debut of his bal Iteam,
commenting, "My infield combina -
tino lived up to pre-season promises
and left hander Bo Bowman exceeded
my expectations on the mound. How-
ever, Iowa's strength was in their
left hand hitters and they were def-
initely at a disadvantage against the
Wolverine southpaws. The real test
will come today and tomorrow against
Notre Dame."
Tobin Pitches First
No-Hitter Since '41
BOSTON, April 27.-(AP)-Jim To-
bin hurled the first no-hit, no-run
game in the major leagues since 1941
today when he pitched the Boston
Braves to a 2 to 0 victory over the
Brooklyn Dodgers. Tobin accounted
for one of the Braves' runs with a
homer in the eighth.
Only two men reached first base as
the 32-year-old right hander turned
in the first no-hit game since Lon
Warneke of the Cards blanked the
Cincinnati Reds 2-0 on Aug. 30, 1941,


Michigan's varsity net squad opens
its Big Ten season with a flourish this
week-end at Chicago, as the racquet-
wielders take on two Western Con-
ference opponents, Minnesota and
Saturday afternoon will mark the
starting match against the Gophers,
when the Maize and Blue netters will
first have the opportunity to find
out if they play the brand of tennis
that is necessary to win Big Ten
tennis matches this year.
Has Been Testing Team
Coach LeRoy Weir has been run-
ning off intra-squad matches again
this week to get the best possible
starting line-up. As a result of these
games there have been two changes in
the team, making for what Weir
hopes will be an even better balanced
squad than that which defeated West-
ern Michigan last week-end, 8-1.

who won a hard-fought three set
battle last week-end, has been moved
from number three singles position
to number two slot by virtue of a
victory over Roger Lewis.
Gulic To Play in Sixth Place
Merle Gulic, another newcomer to
the squad, will now play number six
singles as he trimmed Roy Boucher,
veteran netter in practice recently.
This leaves a starting lineup of Jinx
Johnson, Froelich, Lewis, Bill Ford,
Dave Post and Gulic, while the three
doubles matches will be handled by
Froelich and Lewis, Johnson and
Ford and Gulic and Boucher.
Army Rejects York
DETROIT, April 27.- (IP)- Big
Rudy York, major league home run
champion, was rejected today for
military service because of a trick}
left knee, the result of an old basket-
ball injury, and the Detroit Tigers
immediately looked up timetables for
an early departure from the Ameri-
can League's second division.

the chief problem of the moment
seems to be his hitting.
The other outfielder is Lenny Scar-

Marines on the Notre Dame campus
and is considered one of the fastest
men in intercollegiate baseball.
Martin Will Start
Besides Bill Martin, who is expect-
ed to start against the Wolverines

of the season, the Notre Dame pitch-
