Derringer Starts Comeback
With Impressive Exhibition

FRENCH LICK, Ind., March 17-
(i)-A new lease on baseball life may
begin at almost-40 for big Paul
Derringer of the Chicago Cubs this
For a veteran pitcher of 14 Big
League seasons, 38-year-old Derring-
er surprised Manager Charley Grimm
and perhaps baseball in general by
turning up for the spring practice
not only bright and early, but in
stream-lined condition.
The 6-foot, 4-inch tosser, who cli-
maxed a brilliant stay with the Cin-
cinnati Reds by leading National
League pitchers with a 25-7 record
in 1939, definitely is out for a come-
He weighs 228 which is consider-1

able poundage unless it's explained'
that "Oomp Paul" seldom wandered
into practice camp the past seasons
under 240.
"I went on a diet-no potatoes or
bread," explained Derringer. That,
plus an opening workout last Friday
in which he handcuffed hitters in a
batting practice stint, was enough to
convince Grimm that Paul means
business this summer.
Derringer, who won 7 and lost 13
while working in 42 games last season,
is the only real veteran pitcher in
camp and if Claude Passeau, Bob
Chipman and Hank Wyse fail to leave
their civilian pursuits, the large Ken-
tuckian would become Grimm's No. 1

Special to The Daily
CHICAGO, March 17-Six Michigan entrants running in five events on
the 24-event program of the star-studded Chicago Relays here tonight failed
to win a single first place against strong competition.
The Wolverines, who only last weekend edged out Illinois for the West-
ern Conference Indoor title, managed three thirds, one of them a three-way
tie and a fourth for their evening's work. The other two men finished out
of the money in their events.
In- the first major event of the evening, the 1000-yard run, Dick Barnard
and Ross Hume, the two Michigan entrants, finished third and fourth
respectively as Les Eisenhart, former Ohio State star now running under
the Great Lakes banner, came hone,'>

in front. Eisenhart, defending cham-
pion in the 1000, was closely pressed
in the stretch by Bob Kelley, the Illi-
-nois middle distance phenom. The
winning time was 2:12.4.
Jimmy Rafferty, the veteran New
York A. C. miler, extended his mast-
ery of Gunder (The Wonder) Haegg
to three straight as he finished 12
feet ahead of the Flying Swede in
the Bankers' Mile. Haegg led until
the last lap when Rafferty came from
way back to break the tape in front.
His time was 4:13.7.
Bob Hume, Michigan's entry and
co-holder of the Big Ten mile
crown, faltered badly after setting
an early pace and finished fifth in
the field of five. Hume was not in
the best of condition owing to a
week's layoff during finals.
Dick Forrestal of Michigan came in
third in the 600-yard dash which saw
the much-heralded duel between El-
more Harris and Jimmy Herbert won
by Harris in 1:4. Harris, who runs
for the Shore A. C. of Long Branch
N. J., is now one-up on his rival.
Julian Witherspoon, Wolverine
dash entrant, failed to place in eith-
er the 40, 50, or 55 yard event, al-
though qualifying for all three.
Barney Ewell, running unattached,
took the three sprints. In each, he
was followed to the tape by Coast
Guardsman Herb Thompson.
Chuck Lauritsen wound up the
Michigan performance by finishing in
a tie for third in the pole vault, be-
ing bracketed with Milt Padway and
Walt Farmer at 13 feet. John Schmidt
of Ohio State and Bob Phelps of
Illinois tied for first at 13 ft. 6 in.

Snead Leads in
Charlotte Open
Mepaden Clings to
Second Place in Fidch
CHARLOTTE, N.C., Mar. 17.--A')
-Front-running Sammy Snead tired
perceptibly under a broiling sun to-
day but carded a four-under par 68
to lead at the halfway mark of the
$10,000 Charlotte Open Golf Tour-
nament with a total of 133.
Slamming Sam's drives were short-
er than in his opening 65 round and
he drove into the woods on two of
the last four holes as his ailing back
wearied but he had four birdies and
an eagle, his fifth in three days,
against only to bogeys, to lead the
field by three shots.
The eagle cameson the 490-yard
second hole where he got home in
two and canned an 18-foot putf,
Harold (Jug) McSpaden of San-
ford. Me., clung to second place by
adding a 70 to his first round 66 for
136, despite hitting out of bounds on
No. 18.
Byron Nelson, the big money win-
ner from Toledo, 0., and duration
Open champion Craig Wood, both
matched Snead's 68 to stay within
striking distance five and six strokes
off the pace.
Nelson's 68, achieved despite a
ball out of bounds on the home hole
where McSpaden also lost a precious
stroke, gave him a 36-hole total of
Wood's aave him 139, where he
was dea dlocked with Sammy Byrd,
the one - time Yankee outfielder,
Byrd, third with a 67 yesterday,
carded a 72 today.

Ann Arbor at its best. For
one week the weather has
been like a day in June.
Girls go to classes wearing
just suits or spring coats,
the Navy and Marines have
shed their geavy coats, and
the Army men march
around without their blou-
ses. There has been rain,
but only during the night.
! Students are finding the
library steps or the benches
on campus the most com-
fortable place to "study."
Only a few hardy souls can
spend more than a few
minutes in a stuffy reading
room. The bombers and
planes from Willow Run
fly over continually. Spring
has arrived and the dread-
ed disease often associated
with spring has taken af-
feet. The students of the

dance of the year was en-
tirely successful in the
minds of the 2,000 couples
attending the dance. Per
usual it rained that night
and cabs were very difficult
to secure, but somehow ev-
eryone seemed to get there
sometime during the eve-
ning. Bob Gach was pres-
ent taking pictures of the
couples as they entered,
and red suede programs
with the Michigan crest on
it were given to the girls.
Hal McIntyre played all
the latest sweet and swing
tunes. At intermission five
men from Co. A of the
Army Military Intelligence
school here sang and per-
formed. During the dance
V-Ball Dailies were dis-

a war-time dance and as
such was very successful.

for $1,363,451 increase in
next year's appropriations
"largely to take care of

World War U veterans."
T]he Governor pointed out
that the request looked
very "basic" and "conser-
vative" and should have
high priority. Dr. Alexan-
der G. Ruthven, University
president, conferred with
Kelly and explained that
the cost of educating veter-
ans is greater than of ed-
ucating other students. A
factor in this, Dr. Ruthven
said, is that classes for vet-
erans must be smaller, gen-
erally with 10 to. a dozen
instead of around 40 as in
other classes.
