took individual honors with second

a total of 15 points.
Saginaw Eastern took the lead in
the first event with Carter's win and
were never headed, although George
Osborn's first place in the highjump
brought Arthur Hill to within one
point of the leaders. Osborn won the
highiump with a leap of 5 ft. 11 /
in., and subsequently failed by a
fraction to tie his own meet record of
6 ft. V4 in., set last' year.
No Records Broken
Other than Osborn's valiant at-
tempt, no meet records were endan-
gered. Comparatively slow times
were turned in for the hurdles, the
mile, and the 440.
The next four teams finished in
this order: third, Ann Arbor, 23;
fourth, Battle Creek, 13; fifth, Flint
Central, 16%/4; sixth, Wyandotte, 12.
Twenty-seven schools were entered
in the meet, and the large number of
finalists made it necessary to run the

several heats.

National League Starts Season
Pledged To Help in War Effort

NEW YORK, April 14-(P)-The
National League moves into its fourth
campaign during World War II con-
fident of its place in the war picture
on the home front.
A great percentage of our star base-
ball players are in the service uni-
forms of our country, under Army,
Navy, Marine, Air Corps and Coast
Guard orders on the various fight-
ing fronts. At home the eight Na-
tional League clubs are represented
on the ball fields by men who are
over or under military age, declared

TERRE HAUTE, Ind., April 14-
(M)-Hal Newhouser, 23-year-old left-
handed pitcher who won 29 games
and lost nine last season for the
Detroit Tigers, is Manager Steve
O'Neill's choice to pitch the open-
ing game of the American League
campaign Tuesday against the St.
Louis Browns.
Paul (Dizzy) Trout, 27-game win-
ner for the 1944 Tigers, drew the
second game assignment for Wednes-
day, leaving O'Neill a choice between
Lefty Frank (Stubby) Overmire and
Big Al Benton, Navy dischargee, for
Thursday's finale at St. Louis.
Either Benton or Overmire will
pitch against Cleveland next Friday
when the Tigers open their home
season at Briggs Stadium.
Indications are that Sig Jakucki,
who won 13 games and lost nine for
the Champion Browns last season,
will toil against Newhouser in the
Detroit's opening day lineup and
batting order stacks up as follows:
Jimmy (Skeeter) Webb, ss.
Eddie Mayo, 2b.

physically unfit for war service or
discharged veterans. Our best ball
teams have gone to war but there is
every indication of a keenly com-
petitive National League race here
at home.
Pledged to aid the war effort, the
National League will continue to
play games for war charities. In line
with a request from the Office of De-
fense Transportation the 1945 sched-
ule is being revised so as to eliminate
travel mileage wherever possible. The
annual All-Star game has been can-
celled for 1945, the World Series will
be held only if government officials
assure us of their approval.
Once again the clubs will have as
their guests any servicemen who wish
to attend games. This is a policy
without restriction. Any man or
woman in service uniform may attend
any game without admission on week-
day, holiday or Sunday. In 1944 ser-
vicemen at our games numbered 352,-
082. It is our belief that with many
men returning from the fronts, eith-
er as casualties or on furlough, the
number of uniformed guests will be
perhaps doubled in 1945.
Red W\ns Beat
Toronto To Stay
In Cup Play-offs
TORONTO, April 14-(AP)-Coming
from behind with three goals in the
last period the Detroit Red Wings
beat the Toronto Maple Leafs to-
night, 5 to 3, to keep alive their
chance of winning the Stanley Hock-
ey Cup. It was Detroit's first victory
after losing the first three games of
the final playoff series.
The Detroit third-period splurge
nullified a brilliant individual scor-
ing performance by 19-year-old Ted
Kennedy of Toronto who tallied all
three Toronto goals, two in the first
period and one in the second.
The result of the game was a dis-
appointment to the 14,587 Toronto
fans who had looked for the Leafs to
finish off the series with four straight
The game was the most wide-open
of the series, neither team sticking
for long at the tight-knit defensive
play which characterized the first
three games.

VUE in which 140 campus
servicemen participated
was heldo in Hill Audi-
torium for the Army-Navy
Relief Fund. Late permis-
sion was granted to 500
coeds and servicemen who
attended the huge show.
Ten different acts from
both the Navy and Army
were included in the show
some of which were: the 80
piece Navy band under the
direction of William D.
Revelli, Doc Fielding as
Master of Ceremonies and
producer of the Revue.
Fielding is a Navy medical
student and did many of
the imitations, a la Sammy
Kaye, told jokes, and sang.

Campus Pays Tribute
The sad news of the death of our President, Franklin
D. Roosevelt, first came over the radio at 5:45 p. m. and
the reaction of the campus and city was that of shocked
disbelief. In the Michigan Union students were filing
through the cafeteria line as a broadcast was inter-
rupted to relay the news that the President was dead.
Diners congregated around the loudspeakers of the
Union radio and listened to the bulletins reporting
the tragedy. At the Daily students crowded around the
Associated Press teletype messages to read of the news.
A series of phone calls inquired "was it really true?"
Dr. Ruthven announced that the University programs
would go on as usual as memorial services would be
held later. Professors asked for comment expressed
the universal reaction of shock and surprise. Dean E.
Blythe Stason of the LEw School called the President's
death "one of the world's greatest tragedies in view
of the problems of completing the war and winning
the peace and reconverting the country to a peacetime
economy." Prof Preston Slosson, of the history depart-
ment, called Truman "a Roosevelt man in the main
who irobably will follow his foreign and domestic
policies. Unfortunately he is practically unknown to
Europe so that he will not have the prestige in Euro-
pean councils that Roosevelt would have had" "A great
loss to the country-That's about all anybody can say,"
Prof. D. L. Dumond, of the history department, states.

IT'S AMUSIN'! Campus
reaction to the time change
has been rather less than
was expected by many ex-
perts, who last week were
predicting all sorts of con-
fusion for University per-
sonnel whose lives hence-
forward will be regulated
on a double time standard.
All University clocks are
going by CWT while Ann
Arbor remains on EWT.
There was talk that all
coeds would be coming in
to their dorms an hour
late, that no one would
know when to eat, that 8
o'clocks would be missed
fo a week, that the arbor-
etum would no longer
grow dark at a reasonable
hour, that trains would
have left an hour before
the prospective student
passengers got there, and
that in general students,
like spring, would be a lit-
tle late this year. Those
who were waiting to see
the campus in turmoil were
