The Yost Field House felt the
full blast of the miniature cyclone
which hit Ann Arbor late Monday
afternoon, as slabs of concrete were
blown off the top of the roof.
A gaping hole, approximately six
feet, by ten feet, still shows the re-
sults of the blow, but fortunately no
one in the building was injured.
from two Grosse Ile teams Sunday,
the Wolverines were counting on the
U. of D. as a tune-up for this week-

"Lefty" Bo Bowman, who lost a close
ten-inning contest with Western
Michigan last Friday, and Ray Lou--
then, who ' topped the Broncos the
next day, were slated to share the
mound duties in yesterday's game.
The Maize and Blue nine opens
their conference season Friday, when

two-game series. The Champaign

the first Illinois game, holding the
Hawkeyes to three hits while win-

the mound in the nightcap and
blanked Iowa 4-0, also giving out only
three safeties. This pair of wins puts
the Illini in a tie for first place

pled over Iowa for two victories.

Jakucki Stars on Hill,
Allowing Only Six Hits
Newhouser Makes Bad Start in First Inning;
Richards Hits Homer, Scoring Only Tiger Run
By The Associated Press
ST. LOUIS, April 17-Big Sig Jakucki continued his mastery of the
Detroit Tigers today, as the American League champion St. Luis Browns
won their ninth consecutive opening day game, 7 to 1.
Jakucki, who held three decisions over the Tigers last year, was in
command of the situation all the way, allowing only six scattered hits, one
a homerun by catcher Paul Richards and one a harmless double by second
baseman Eddie Mayo.

A LITTLE WHILE AGO, news drifted in that big Al Blozis, formerly of
Georgetown College, had been killed in action on the Western Front.
Although Blozis holds the American record for the 16-pound shot put-
56 ft. 6 in. and one sixth which he set at N.Y.A.C. in 1941, he is better
known for his football ability, being named as an All-American while a't
Georgetown, as well. as playing in the All-Star game his last year in
school.
Blozis, who towers 6 ft. 7 in. in height and weighing 260 pounds, played
three football games for the New York Giants while he was home on a fur-
lough from the .Army, and for this reason, many of the scribes were
denouncing the "big boy."
Al played with the Giants in their championship clash againstI
the Green ]bay Packers last December 19, and this was the last news
heard from him, until the Army recently announced his death.
Blozis didn't show up for this championship game until a half-hour
before the starting whistle, even surprising his coach, Steve Owen. How-
ever, Al had a special reason for playing that game as he knew that itl
might be the last time he would ever have another chance to don a footballf
uniform because he was due at an embarkation point that very night.
FIVE WEEKS AFTER "his day" at the Polo Grounds, Lt. Al Blozis had
his first taste of actual combat in a war zone, and this came about
when the Germans brpke through the Allied lines in February.
His outfit was in trouble, and when his scouting crew didn't return,
Blozis plunged into the blizzard in search of them. His men heard a
cross-lre, and a search for their leader proved futile, so^ he was listed as
missing in action until the fateful news of his death arrived.
The ironic part of any criticism levelled at the giant player for
participating in those three games while home on a furlough. is that

Golfers To Face
Titans Saturday
hr Initial Ma tch
Coach Barclay Selects
Starting Five Players
Shooting for their first victory of
the season, the Michigan linksmen
will open the 1945 schedule Saturday
when they encounter the University
of Detroit.
On the basis of past performances
in the practice sessions of, the last
few weeks, Coach Bill Barclay has
announced the five golfers who will
travel to Detroit to face the Titans
in the initial match. Four veterans.
from the 1944 championship team
Captain Paul O'Hara, John Jens-
wold, Phil Marcellus, and John Tews,
and newcomer Bob Ernst have been
selected to face the Detroit squad.
Barclay said that the team is com-
ing along comparatively well, but the
players lack consistence which can
be expected because of the weather
conditions. The golfers have not had:
ample opportunity to practice caus-
ing a variety of scores.
Titans Appear Stronger
Last year the Wolverines faced the*
Titan squad twice, taking the open-
ing contest by an 18-0 shutout and
defeating the Detroiters later in the
season 1712-12. But coach Bill Joyce's
charges, who will meet the Maize and
Blue golfers Saturday, .give indica-
tions of being a stronger group than
the Wolverines played a year ago.
The reason for this is that three
first-year men won the top berths on
the Titan club. Harold Cook and
Slavatore Romante topped the field
to take the number one and two posi-
tions respectively.

The game was played before only
4,167 paid spectators, one of the
smallest day opening crowds of re-
cent years, probably because of the
chill weather, although no campaign
was made for a large crowd because
of fear it might cause absenteeism in
war plants. The temperature was in
the low 50's at game time.
Hal Newhouser, crafty lefthander
who won 29 games for the Tigers last
season while losing only nine, was off
to a bad start. A walk, two hits, one
a double, and an error, put him in the
hole in the first inning and the
Browns pulled out with a two-run
lead.
Browns Explode in Sixth
The champions settled matters de-
cisively with an explosive uprising in
the sixth after which Newhouser was
relieved by Leslie Mueller who like-
wise got into serious trouble and last-
ed only one inning. Walter Wilson
finished.
A single by shortstop Vernon Ste-
phens, doubles by rightfielder Milt
Byrnes and first baseman George
McQuinn, an infield roller by third
baseman Len Schulte which was good
for a single, and a sacrifice by catch-.
er Frank Mancuso netter the Browns
three runs and Newhouser's with-
drawal.
Gray Gets Hit
Pete Gray, one-armedleftfielder,
greeted Mueller at the start of the
next inning with an infield hit. Cen-
terfielder Mike Kreevich was walked
and Byrnes then drove them in with
his second double.
Roger Cramer, Detroit centerfield-
er, turned in the sensational fielding

to the fans because it deprived Gray
of an otherwise certain two base hit.
The fleet Gray had rounded first base
