Varsity Winning Streak
Smashed at Six Games_
Army Team Takes Advantage of Misplays;
Errors Cost Dick Schmidtke First Victory

Snapping Michigan's winning"
streak at six games, the Army base
team from Camp Perry, O., cashed
in on two mental lapses by the Wol-'
verine infield Sunday to eke out a
narrow. 3-2 win over pitcher Dick
Schmidtke and the Wolverines.
Michigan out-hit Camp Perry and
out-played them most of the way, but
failed to deliver with men on base as
pitcher Bob Cronin hurled steady ball
and kept 11 safeties well scattered.
Meanwhile, the Army nine turned
some bad base-running into runs and
also managed to bunch their hits to
good advantage.
Perry scored a run in the sixth
when they loaded the bases on two
singles and a walk. With two out,
Wolverine catcher Bob Stevenson
picked the base-runner off first and
in the subsequent rundown a runner
came in from third.
Perry Gets Breaks
Going into the, eighth one run be-
hind, Perry again capitalized on
breaks to score two markers and sew
up the ball game. One resulted when
shortstop Bruce Blanchard hit a run-
ner in the back during another run-
down and the other came across
when first baseman Elmer Swanson
failed to field a squeeze bunt.
Michigan got single runs in the
second and sixth, the first coming on
a single by Don Lund, a sacrifice,
and another bingle by Bob Wiese.
Lund led off the sixth with a two-
bagger down the left field line and
scored a moment later when Bob
Nussbaumer singled him home.
Major League
Standings

The Wolverines advanced a man
as far as second in their half of the
ninth, but Blanchard and Bill Gregor,
the team's leading hitters, were easy
outs. Another opportunity was missed1
in the second when Wiese was thrown1
out at the plate while attempting toe
score on a fly to right field.-
Coach Ray Fisher was not per-
turbed by his team's showing against
the soldiers, particularly after the
fine manner in which his charges
bowled over Western Michigan in1
both ends of a doubleheader Satur-
day, 9-0 and 2-1.
Bowman Comes Near No-Hitter
In the opening game, lefthander Bo
Bowman missed the charmed circle of
no-hit game pitchers by one man
when Bronco first baseman John,
Hovanec lifted a clean single over
second with two gone in the ninth.1
Fisher himself took the blame for the
hit, remarking that he should have
told Bowman to throw all curve balls
rather than bring his fast one across.
With the count at two balls and
one strike, the little southpaw
grooved one and- lost his chance for
no-hit fame. Nevertheless, it was an
extremely well-pitched ball game as
Bowman hung up nine strikeouts and
walked only three men. Only one
batsman advanced as far as third
base.
Hirsch Gives Up Two Hits
Elroy Hirsch did almost as well in
the second game, giving up only two
infield singles, at least one of which
might have been recorded as an
error. The Broncoes managed to,
bunch the two safeties with a walk
and a hit batsman to score a run.
After this bad second inning,
Hirsch permitted only one man to
reach first on a walk as he gave a
fine exhibition of control and spot,
pitching. He struck out only two, but
kept the hitters from connecting sol-
idly with his delivery.
Face Grosse Ile Today
Michigan's fielding was very effec-
tive in both games, as the Wolverines
played errorless ball. Second base-
man Charlie Ketterer had an espe-
cially good day, handling nine chan-
ces, some of them difficult, without
an error. First sacker Swanson regis-
tered 27 putouts at the initial sack.
Today, Michigan will try to get
back on the victory trail when they
take the field against the Grosse Ile
Naval Base team at 4 p.m. here. The
Sailor squad played its most impres-
sive ball of the season Saturday while
swamping Michigan State, 12-3, al-
though they dropped an earlier game
to Wayne University.
Chief cog in the Grosse,.Ile machine
is pitcher Bob Hall, a former member
of the Detroit Tiger chain. Hall has
pitched for Beaumont in the Texas
League and Winston-Salem in the
Eastern League. He also hurled for
Michigan State.

Even Break in
Pair of Matches
Golfers Beat Broncos;
Lose to Notre Dame
In Sunday's Contest
By RUTH ELCONIN
The Wolverine golf team returned
home from two important matches
last week-end with a win over West-
ern Michigan and an eight point loss
in their second match against Notre
Dame.
Saturday's match with the Bron-
cos was the first contest in athletic
history that the Michigan linksmen
have played with Western. The Maize
and Blue trounced their opponents
by a score of 25-2, with Jack Tews
again the outstanding golfer as he
registered a 72, the top score of the
day. k
Sunday, the linksters played at
South Bend and suffered their second
loss of the season at the hands of
the Irish, 172-9/2. This was to have
been a triangular match between
Michigan, Notre Dame and Nort-
western, but the Irish played the
Wildcat contest on Saturday while
the Wolverines faced the Broncos.
Therefore, Sunday's tilt found only
Michigan and Notre Dame 'pitted
against each other.
Misjudge Greens .,
Coach Courtright said, "The Mich-
igan golfers played better golf in this
match than in any other, and one of
the reasons for the defeat could be
attributed to the fact that the Notre
Dame course was flat and hard to
judge. Sometimes the players mis-
judged the greens as much as 30
feet."
The best ball matches were played
at 8:30 a.m., and by the end of the
morning Notre Dame was leading
Michigan by a score of 7-2. The top
doubles combination for the Wolver-
iines was Capt. Phil Marcellus and
Tom Messinger, whose cards showed
scores of 76. They were followed by
Jack Tews and Paul O'Hara, who
turned in scores of 76 and 78, respec-
tively.
Marcellus Gets Individual Honors
At 2 p.m. the single matches were
played off, and the Irish topped the
Wolverines, 10 %-7/. Marcellus cap-
tured individual honors on the Mich-
igan golf squad with 75, but the high
man for the afternoon was Notre
Dame's star, Jack Fitzpatrick, who
shot a 72.
Courtright's comment on the Notre
Dame tilt was that it gave the golf
team good practice for the match
this Saturday
Tiger Outfielder
Enters Hospital
For Treatment
DETROIT, May 8-I) Jimmy
Outlaw, Tiger outfielder, entered
Henry Ford Hospital tonight for di-
agnosis and treatment of a back in-
jury suffered in batting practice
Saturday, when he collided with the
leftfield wall in Briggs Stadium.
Manager Steve O'Neill said it was
doubtful if Outlaw would be able to
entrain with the squad Tuesday night
Ewhen it leaves on its first eastern
swing, which begins with a series
against the New York Yankees.
With Outlaw on the hospital list,
only two of the Tigers' injury-jinxed
outfield crew have not been casual-
ties. They are Charley Metro and
Don Ross. Roger Cramer, veteran
centerfielder, is playing regularly but
he has not fully recovered from a leg
injury.

All but Three Big Ten
Titlists To Be Present
By BILL LAMBERT
When the Wolverines engage in
their triangular meet with Illinois and
Purdue this Saturday on the Ferry
Field track, the nation's track fans
will be watching the results of this,
the first outdoor meeting of the mid-
west's finest runners, with interest.
The first event will be run off at
1:45 p.m. to enable the spectators to
take in both the meet and the base-
ball game in the same afternoon. The
early start will also enable Elmer
Swanson, Conference indoor low and
high hurdles champion, and Elroy
Hirsch, Big Ten second place winner
in the broadjump, to shed their track
clothes in time to don their baseball
uniforms and play for Coach Ray
Fisher against Ohio State.
This meet will being together a
host of stars seldom equalled in the
country's best track programs. Among
them will be Claude "Buddy" Young,
the sensational Negro flash from Il-
linois; Bill Beile, who placed fourth
in the National Collegiate half-mile
last year; Bob Kelley, the Conference
880 champion; and Michigan's indi-
vidual stars, Bob Ufer, Ross and
Bob Hume, and Swanson.
Conference Champs Participate
A look at the records shows that
all the first and second place win-
ners at the Conference indoor meet,
with the exception of three men, will
be competing Saturday. Only John

Novikoff Back
On Cub. Lineup
CHICAGO, May 8.-(YP)-Lou Nov-
ikoff, the Chicago Cubs' $60,000
bench decoration, says he is getting
ready to start a Russian offensive.
His confidence was restored yester-
day when he spanked a single against
the Pittsburgh Pirates as a pinch hit-
ter-the first time he had been to
bat this season. The fans yelled their
approval when he waddled to the
plate.
The Mad Russian, who never hit
below .363 in three minor leagues
only to flop as a big leaguerookie, is
going to be given a chance for a regu-
lar job with the Cubs by new Mana-
ger Charlie Grimm.
Baseball's forgotten ' man, thinks
he can bat for Grimm. He notched a
neat .370 in 90 games for Grimm's
Milwaukee Brewers in 1941 after the
Cubs had dispatched him there on
option. The next year he returned to
the Cubs, becoming the only .300
hitter on the club.
