For Fourth Win
At Notre Dane
Irish Have Two Big
Ten Wis to credit
It hasn't been hard so far, but
Michigan's net squad has its first
tough battle of the season cut out
this afternoon when the wily racque-
teers meet an equally confident club
from Notre Dame.
The Irish have two wins to their
credit-Michigan has three, one fver
Western Michigan, one over Minne-
sota and a Maroon triumph. The
Irish have defeated both Northwest-
ern and Wisconsin, which is an im-
pressive Big Ten record, but which
leaves them slightly behind the Wol-
verines in actual experience this year.
Coach LeRoy Weir was uncertain
of his starting lineup when he left
Ann Arbor Friday, and stated that
it was possible that there would be
another switch in the singles distri-
bution, although the doubles setup.
seemed fairly assured. In intra-squad
games carried on throughout the
week, Weir has been carefully judg-
ing the capabilities of the members
of the squad in order to make certain
that the team is best weighted to
meet the powerful Irish team, and
will have the best a'vailable men play-
ing in the top singles slots.
As it stands at present, however,
Jinx Johnson will be number one
man followed by Jim Frolik, Roger
Lewis, Bill Ford, Dave Post and Merle
PHILLIES NIP DODGERS
BROOKLYN, May 5.-(IP)- The
surprising Philadelphia Phillies got
good pitching again today, this time
from southpaw Ken Raffensberger,
and climbed into second place in the
National League flag race on the
strength of their 3 to 1 victory over
Minnesota 4, Wisconsin 3.
Ohio State 14, Wisconsin 3.

Rain and wet grounds forced the
postponement of the opener of a two-
game series between Michigan and
Western Michigan yesterday, but
Wolverine coach Ray Fisher an-
nounced that the two teams would
play a doubleheader this afternoon,'
the first game getting under way at'
In making the announcement,
Fisher indicated that he would stick
to his original pitching selections of
Bo Bowman and Elroy Hirsch for the
There is a possibility, however, that
if the Broncos fall before Bowman's
southpaw slants, Fisher will counter
with another lefthander in the sec-
ond contest. These tactics were used
very successfully in the Iowa series
which Michigan took, two games to
Southpaw Biddle To Start
Western's coach John Gill is ex-
pected to start his ace portsider,
Warren (Red) Biddle, in the opener
and follow up with righthander Ray
Louthen in the nightcap. Both hurl-
ers have displayed plenty of prowess
in earlier engagements.
Today's twin-bill will be the sec-
ond of the current season, both of
them occasioned by postponed games.
Earlier in the campaign the Wol-
verines met Iowa in a doubleheader
and copped both ends, winning the
initial contest 7-0 and the second,

Michigan has already been washed

Elroy Hirsch, Elmer
Swanson To Report
For Squad Practice
As the Wolverine thinclads went
through more vigorous workouts yes-
terday. the prospects for the 1944
outdoor season took on a new as-
pect when Coach Ken Doherty an-
nounced that Elmer Swanson and
Elroy Hirsch would participate in
track meets this spring.
Swanson and Hirsch, who are both
members of the baseball squad, were
valuable point getters in the Big
Ten indoor championships last win-
ter. However, the extent to which
Doherty will use them is not yet
known, although it is believed that
Swanson will probably run in the
120-yard high hurdles, and Hirsch
will compete in the broad jump.
During the indoor season, Swan-
son was one of the most valuable
men on the team. Throughout the
winter meets, he was a consistent
winner in the high and low hurdles
and then, to climax his indoor cham-
pionship; captured both hurdle events
at the Big Ten meet.
