day's 3-0 win over the Illini. Bow-
man, the winning pitcher, allowed
two hits, while Louthen gave up one.
Art Ecklund went the distance for
Illinois, yielding four safeties, three
of them infield singles.
Stevenson Drives It In
The game's only score came in the
bottom half of the fifth when Wol-
verine first baseman Tom Rosema
tallied from third on a single by Bob
Stevenson. Rosema, first man up,
beat out a bunt for a single, was sac-
rificed to second by Dom Tomasi,.
and reached third when Ecklund
threw wiltily while trying to pick him
off second. Stevenson was thrown
out trying to stretch his single into
a double, and Bowman grounded out
to end the inning.
Both teams threatened several
times to score, but only the Michigan
fifth inning rally was productive.
The Wolverines muffed their best op-
portunity in the eighth inning when
Tom Rosema reached first on an in-
field single, and was advanced to
third on a passed ball and two walks,
which loaded the bases. The rally
was squelched, however, when Walt
Kell was thrown out on a grounder
to short.
1lini Threatens
Illinois threatened to tie the game
in the sixth, seventh, and eighth in-
nings, advancing runners to scor-
ing-position in each of these frames.
The Illini came closest to evening
the score in their half of the eighth
when Roy Wiedow opened with an
infield single, and Ed Planert walk-
ed. After Wiedow had advanced to

tnira on a long Jay, Luouthern retired
the next two men. Other Illinois at-
tempts to score were also nipped as
Orange and Blue men died on sec-
ond in the first and fourth innings.
The Wolverines collected four hits,
all singles, with Rosema connecting
for two of them in three times to bat.
The Illini scattere dtheir three hits
over as many innings. Centerfielder
Jim Neufeldt got the only extra base
blow of the game on a double in the
sixth inning, the first hit off Bow-
Strikeouts Galore
Strikeouts were plentiful, with Bow-
man gathering eight to Ecklund's sev-
en. Louthen fanned two men in the
two and one-third innings he pitched.
The errors were distributed almost
evenly between the two teams, with
Michigan committing four misplays,
to Illinois' five.
The Wolverines take the road next
weekend when they travel to South
Bend to play single contests with
Notre Dame Friday and Saturday
after which they will return to Ann
Arbor for tilts with the Gophers of
Minnesota on May 4 and 5.

NEW YORK, April 21-0')-Paul
Derringer, only 200-game winner in
the National League and winner of
most games in the Majors among the
active pitchers, notched his 209th
big league triumph today as he hurl-
ed the Chicago Cubs to a 4-3 victory
over the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Although stung for 13 hits, the
38-year-old righthander was tough in
the pinches to hang up his second
win of the season. A seventh-inning
double by Bill Nicholson off losing
pitcher Preacher Roe, scored Phil
Cavaretta with the winning run.
Bill Voiselle of the Giants joined
Derringer as the only two-game win-
ners of the young season by trimming
the Brooklyn Dodgers 3-2 although
reached for 11 hits and five bases on
balls. A two-run homer by Steve
Filipowicz, ex-football hero at Ford-
ham, playing left field for the Giants
in place of injury-ridden Joe Med-
wick, provided the margin of victory.
A single by Johnny Hopp with the
bases loaded in the ninth gave the
St. Louis Cardinals a 3-2 victory over
the Cincinnati Reds. Arnold Carter
went the route for the Reds, allow-
ing nine hits while Billy Southworth
had to use three hurlers with rookiei
Ken Burkhardt, the winner.
Hal Newhouser, 29-game winner of
the Detroit Tigers last year, gained
his first triumph of the season by out-
pitching young Charlie (Red) Em-
bree of the Cleveland Indians 3-2
in 11 innings. Newhouser, himself
singled home the winning run after
Ed Borom had bunteL safely, stole
second, was sacrificed to third and
tallied on Hal's second hit of the

clay at Detroit's Red Run Country
With practically the same team
that took the Big Ten championship
in 1944, and is aiming for its fourth
consecutive title this year, the Maize
and Blue links squad faced the Tit-
ans with four varsity letterwinners,
Capt. Paul O'Hara, John Tews, Phil
Marcellus, John Jenswold, and one
first-year man, Bob Ernst,.
Leading the field in the individual
play was Tews who carded an 80,
followed by Ernst, Marcellus, Jens-
wold, and O'Hara. In the doubles
contest, Wolverine linksmen took both.
matches with Marcellus and Tews,
and Jenswold and O'Hara encoun-
tering the Titan's doubles combina-
tions of Harold Cook and Slavatore
Pomante, and Jerry Fitzgerald and
Adam Nowicki.
Barclay, commenting on the Titan
tilt, said he was very pleased with
the showing of the team. Michigan's
golf mentor added that even though
it was cold and the grounds were
wet, which considerably slowed up
the game, the squad played a good
match under such adverse weather
Barclay almo said that Ernst, being
a newcomer to the squad, handled
himself especially well and shot a
fine game by carding an 81.

TORONTO, April 21.- (P)- A
i blond Eddie Bruneteau's 12 - foot
drive from right wing at 14:15 of the
first overtime period tonight gave
the Detroit Red Wings a 1-0 victory
over the Toronto Maple Leafs to
send the Stanley Cup final hockey
series into a seventh game at Detroit
Sunday night. The eight-point series
now is tied 3-3 in games, 6-6 on-
The suddenness of the ending sur-
prised the 13,953 who paid admission

had stopped an apparently harmless
Detroit rush in their own zone when
the puck struck the backboards and
bounced out to Bruneteau, whp was

Firing from a slight angle, the

Relay Results
Termed Very
Practice Needed for
Entry in Penn Relays
Results of a competitive five-mile
relay, highlighting yesterday after-
noon's program of track time trials,
were termed "discouraging" by
Coach Ken Doherty as all ten men
represented fell far below their usual
"The times show a definite lack
of practice and are discouraging in
view of the Penn Relays coming up
next week-end," Doherty commented.
"We are counting on these men to
score most of our points at Philadel-
phia, but they will have to show a
lot of improvement before Friday,"
he said.
The winning team, composed of
Bill Neilson, Charles Birdsall, Dick
Gehring, Ross Hume, and Bob Hume
showed a cumulative time of 23X1l0.1
for the five-mile distance. The losing
quintet-Ross Willard, Archie Par-
sons, Bob Thomason, Dick Barnard,
and Walt Fairservis-was clocked in
23:24.4. Bob Hume's 4:27.5 was the
best individual performance.
One bright note was injected
into the otherwise discouraging
picture when Val Johnson and Bill
Shepherd turned in a fast :50.1
dead heat for the quarter mile.
Doherty was especially pleased
with Johnson's time, the fastest he
has run all year.
High winds and low temperatures
cut scheduled competition in the
hurdles and sprints from the pro-
gram and also helped to account for
the poor times turned in by the dis-
tance men, according to Doherty.
Bad weather during the past week,
he said, was probably also a factor in
the lack of conditioning shown.
Further time trials will be held
early this week to determine the
squad which will travel to Philadel-
phia for the Penn Relays Friday and
Saturday. Final decisions as to per-
sonnel probably will not be made
until late in the week, Doherty said.
Deluxe Take Second
DETROIT, April 21--(P)-Deluxe
Weld of Detroit blasted the Hard-
woods tonight for a 3062 total to
grab second place in the five-man
event of the Men's State Bowling
Tournament. Strohs of Detroit hold
the lead with 3062.

Sparked by the outstanding performance of Roger Lewis, captain-
elect of the Wolverine tennis squad, Coach Le Roy Weir's netmen gained
a decisive, 5-2 victory over Purdue in the opening meet of the season at
Ann Arbor yesterday.
Lewis defeated Walt Lum, runner-up in the Western Conference play-
offs last year. Lum, who was favored over Lewis, was upset due to Lewis's
exceptional net-play which threw off the steady game usually exhibited by
the Boilermakers' captain. The sur-4>
prise outcome of the number one the fact that this-was the first match
singles match took the form of 6-3, of the season. He also mentioned
6-3 that he was exceptionally pleased
