Pr ising Penn Relay Performance

Returning to the home diamond
after a clean sweep of its two-game
weekend series with the Irish at
South Bend, Michigan's baseball
squad will face the University of
betroit at 3 p. m. CWT (4 p. m.
EWT) today when the Titans come
to Ann Arbor to play the game which
was scheduled here for April 17 and
subsequently rained out.
Coach Ray Fisher has named Jack
Peddy as his starting pitcher, choos-
ing to rest Bo Bowman, who was the
winning hurler in Saturday's contest
with Notre Dame. Fisher intends to
ieplace Peddy at the end of threeJ
innings in favor of Jack Hackstadt,
and to use "Red" Louthen, Friday's
winning hurleX, in the concluding
three frames.
Detroit Suffered One Loss1
The Titans boast a record of two
wins and one loss to date. Their
only defeat was at the hands of the
Romulus Air Base team a week ago.
while their winning record includes
triumphs over the Grosse Ile Naval
Base and the 728th Military Police.
Nine of Coach Lloyd Brazil's squad
members have played varsity base-
ball previous to this season, including
Jack Simmons, a discharged Navy
man who was a catcher during the
1942 season and has switched to the
outfield this year. Returning from
the 1944 squad which was undefeated
in intercollegiate competition are

Fisher Is Pleased
Meanwhile, Coach Ray Fisher was
highly pleased at his team's two wins
over Notre Dame, although his in-
field combination is still "unsatisfac-
tory." Improvement in the inner
defense is evident, however, as the
Wolverines registered their first per-
fect day in the field in Saturday's
The individual star in the Notre
Dame series, according to batting
statistics, was Tom Rosema, who got
two hits Friday and hit safely three
times in five appearances at bat Sat-
Irish Hurlers "Poor"
Fisher also expressed satisfaction
with his pitching, although he de-
scribed the Irish hurlers as "not too
good". Jack Barnett, the leading
hurler for Notre Dame, developed a
sore arm in the fifth inning of the
first game and was forced to retire
from the contest. The Irish pitching
in the second tilt, when Notre Dame
used four hurlers, "was rather poor,"
according to Fisher.
Meanwhile, yesterday's practice pro
duced a casualty for the Wolverines
when Walt Kell, third baseman, suf-
fered a broken nose during infield
drill. Fisher stated that the injury
will not keep Kell out of today's
game, however.

NEW YORK, April 30-()-The
Professional Golfers' Association to-
day announced plans to make the
dates of the Sam Snead-Byron Nel-
son golf match-May 26 and 27~-
national "Rehabilitation" days for all
cubs, with proceeds of exhibitions
and tournaments going toward the
association fund to provide golf facili-
ties for service hospitals.
Snead and Nelson will play 36
holes of their challenge match at the
Fresh Meadow club on Long Island,
and the second 36 on the Essex Club
course in New Jersey, with all pro-
ceeds going to the fund. Other clubs
throughout the country will be asked
to arrange exhibitions or tournaments
among members.

Commenting on Michigan's performance in the
Penn Relays held last Friday and Saturday, Wolverine
tuack mentor Ken Doherty said yesterday "In the
sixteen years that I have been affiliated with Michigan
track the performance this weekend was the finest
display of running I have ever seen a Wolverine track
team produce at this time of year."
One of the scribes attending the meet for the
New York Times said "The men from Ann Arbor
performed a feat seldom accomplished in the half
century that the carnival has now been in existence
when they carried off honors in four of the five
events they competed in."
Commenting on individual times registered by vari-
ous thinclads, Coach Doherty cited the performance
of George Sheperd, who registered a :48.8 in the 440
stint of the sprint medley relay on Friday.
Other fine times recorded at the Relays were Bob
Hume's' 4:16.7 mile in the four mile relay; Dick For-
restel's :48.8 for the third leg of the mile relay team,
and Ross Hume's sensational 1:54.6 in the 880 yard
run of the sprint medley.
Continuing to speak of times, Coach Doherty
quoted the times recorded in each of the events the
Wolverines competed in. In the four mile relay

In the sprint medley, the Wolverines covered the
distance in 3:30.8, and in the Mile Relay the Wolver-
ine quartet pushed Army to their best performance
and recorded the fastest time of the season for
themselves. They ran the distance in 3:19.4.
By far the best race of the meet, from a spectator
standpoint was the four mile relay. There the Wol-
verines had to face an N.Y.U. quartet composed of
Osterberg, ICAAAA two mile champion, Martin, NCAA
two mile champion, Eckert, ICAAAA runner up for the
mile crown, and Rudy Simms. who recorded a 4:14.9
mile in the Chicago Relays held recently.
In this relay the Wolverines and N.Y.U. battled it
out on even terms. Bob Hume and Rudy Simms ran
neck and neck until the last half of the last lap.
The general concensus of opinion among those
experts witnessing the carnival was tat "The Hume
twins were the sensation of the meet.' Coach
Doherty said that considering the lack of time they
have had to get into condition "The flumes per-
formed superlatively."
Coach Doherty was more than satisfied with his
squad's performance, not only because they won four
titles, but because of the way in which they won them.
He said "The weather was not favorable to running,
the competition was much tougher than we expected,
and the conditioning we had had not not the best I
could hope for. "Thus the boy's performances were
truly the best I have seen in a long time."

over a trade which sent him to
Cleveland, third baseman Don Ross
of the Detroit Tigers told general
marager Jack Zeller today he plan-

dena,, Calif.

Ross and infielder Lambert (Dutch)
Meyer went to the Indians in return

club," Zeller said today after con-
ferring with Ross.

Buckeyes Prove Too
Strong, Winning 15-121
Suffering its first defeat of the
1945 season, Michigan's veteran golf
team dropped last Saturday's hard
fought match 15-12 to the Ohio State
iinksmen at Columbus.
Coach Bill Barclay, commenting on
the Wolverines initial Big Ten oppo-
sition, said "the contest was as close
as the score indicates, and the squad
came up against some stiff competi-
Squads Get Fine Weatherl
Playing the doubles matches in
the morning, and the individual play-
offs later in the day, the linksmen en-
joyed perfect golfing weather. The

Tews, and Ken Morey and Bob
When play ended, and the scores
tallied, only one Michigan pair Tews
and O'Hara came out on top. With
the singles contests in the faternoon,f
Barclay's charges came out one bet-
ter than they did in the earlier
matches by carding two victories,

with Tews topping Baker and Morey

Lorms Is Low Man
Low man for both teams was the
Buckeye's star player Lorms who shot
a 73 and Marcellus attained Michi-
gan's best score with a 74. Number
two man on the Wolverine squad was
Tews who recorded 77.
Two matches were not decided un-
til the eighteenth hole and both of
the Maize and Blue golfers came out
iat the wrong end of the score. Mar-
cellus was tied with Lorms until the
last hole and both weer on the green
in two shots. The Michigan linksmen
just barely missed a twenty foot putt,
but Lorms came through to win.

Wayne to Win
Third Straight
Lewis Takes Upset;
Team Pleases Weir
Still flushed from their Illinois
victory last Saturday, the Maize and
Blue tennis squad made it three
straight as they downed the Tartars
of Wayne University, 6-3, yesterday.
Taking four singles and two dou-
bles matches in an afternoon which
featured Rog Lewis' surprising tri-
umph over Tartar Bob Ryland, Chi-
cago singles champion and runner-
up in the Illinois Championship, the
Wolverines showed an excellent stea-
diness and team balance.
In the number two spot, Wayne's
Del Russel, Detroit CIO singles
champ, scored a closely fought vic-
tory over Jinx Johnson, 6-3, 6-3.
Hersh, Nauggle Triumph
Jack Hersh and Gordon Nauggle,
hclding down the three and fourth
berths scored easy wins over their
respective opponents, as did Bill
Haymes, Navy V-12 student. Dave
Post, Michigan number five man,
dropped his match to Phil Hoffman.
The number one doubles match
between the Ryland-Russel combo
and the Lewis-Hersh went to Wayne
after the first set was deuced to
sixteen games.
Michigan bounced back, however,
to take the other doubles matches,
with Johnson and Pos coming thro-
ugh in one, and Grdon Nauggle
ceaming up with Roy Bou-cher to set
the Wayne opponents down, 6-0, 6-1.
Weir Is Enthusiastic
Commenting on the matches, ten-
nis mentor, LeRoy Weir, was espe-
cially pleased with Captain Roger
Lewis for his exceptional steadiness
against Tartar ace, Bob Ryland.
A so, looking back at the Illinois
tourney, Weir acclaimel Jack Hersh
for his play against the Illini's Roger
Little. He also said that the Illinois
squad was "fairly representative of
the rest of the Conference schools,
all of which boast of fairly good net
squads." Gordon Nauggle and Bill
Haymes received a good word from
their coach, in turn, fo:' their sensa-
tional teamwork in their doubles
match last Saturday.
The Wolverines next home match
will be against Notre Dame Saturday.
