mseadwon thestroke play cham-
pionship off Byron Nelson over 36
holes today in the stroke play sec-
tion of their 72-hole challenge golf
match, but the rugged par of the
Fresh Meadow Course beat them
Snead registered 70-73-143 over
the long par 70 course, and Nelson
had 73-71-144. A gusty wind dur-
ing the afternoon round, combined
with the obvious pressure each man
was under, helped boost the scores.
It virtually was match play tension.
The 6,000 fans who saw the match,
played for the P.G.A. Rehabilitation
Fund, saw brilliant shots interspers-
ed with scrambling play, and on
nearly every hole one or the other
of the stars was worrying and sweat-
ing out his par as his ball found a
trap or tree-studded rough.
Burning Dream
Glows Brightly
LOUISVILLE, Ky., May 26--(P)-
Hopes for a fifth Kentucky Derby
winner glowed brightly for Col. E. R.
Bradley at Churchill Downs today as
his Burning Dream won the one mile
Derby trial somewhat easily over
nine other eligibles.
Burning Dream finished a length
and a half ahead of C. C. Tanner's
best effort, with Lookout Farm's For-
eign Agent following by two lengths.
The big noise of the crowd of ap-
proximately 14,000 was John Mar-
sch's Free For All, ranking Derby
favorite, which struggled in for
fourth after setting the early pace.
Burning Dream's time was 1:38 1/5.
He paid $5.80.

Buckeye golfers will be hosts at
this year's NCAA tournament which
will be conducted at the Ohio State
Golf Club June 25-27. Six or seven
four-man teams are expected but
entries may run as high as 75 as
some colleges will be represented by
one or two men who will be in the
race for the singles title. The team
crown is decided at the conclusion
of the qualifying round, the four
lowest scorers comprising a team's
medal total.
Notre Dame took the team title in
last year, and Lick of the Gopher
squad won the individual crown from
Jenswold who was second place win-
ner of the 1944 NCAA contest.

LENN DAVIS, All-American fullback last year and the nation's leading
scorer, is causing quite a furor among baseball magnates who have seen
the West Point Cadet perform in this sport. In fact, rumor has it
that scouts and big league ball players as well contend that the versatile
athlete would be worth as much to a big league ball club as Dick Wake-
field, who received $52,500 for signing with the Detroit Tigers a short time
This speculation on the supposed merit of the brilliant center-
fielder would be enough to arouse any one's interest on his ability.
Branch Rickey of the St. Louis Cardinals was especially impressed with
the 19-year-old Cadet when he saw Davis make four hits in as many
trips to, the plate, steal five bases, make two sensational catches, and
throw two men out from center field, while playing in an exhibition
game and without one day of practice after reporting for baseball
when the football season had terminated.
"He could be a major league ballplayer right now, and a good one,"
asserts Rickey, who also claims that Davis "is worth every nickel Wake-
field was." Though not a long-distance hitter, the erstwhile Davis concen-
trates on getting short hits, at which he is particularly adept.
DAVIS' TALENTS are not limited to football and baseball, but he was
also a dash man on the track team at West Point, played basketball,
and when asked to complete a routine swimming test, he broke the long-
.:standing West Point record for the breaststroke, thus leaving one with
the impression that he would stand out as well in any sport that he desired
to participate in.
However, as well as he plays the other sports during the year, he
claims that baseball is his favorite game, and though he is quite adept
at them all, most critics who have seen him in action in every sport,
don't offer any denials of the fact that this is the sport in which he
gives his best performances.
Regardless of his abilities and the possibility that he would be a com-
plete success in baseball, any speculations by baseball moguls will have to
remain just that, for the fleet Davis, as well as any person registered at
'the academy, has consigned himself to remain in the service for eight
years, and the only solution out of such a dilemma is for Davis to either
flunk out or resign, with the last alternative not considered proper on the
basis of the present times.
Obviously, the young Cadet has no intentions of flunking out since he
crammed for re-entry after not being able to make the grade as a
plebe. So, men like Branch Rickey who have seen the whirlwind in action
and give their heartiest approval of his prowess, will have to confine their
reactions to a mere grimace when the name of Davis is mentioned and take
a back seat to 'Old Father Time.'

The seizure or the Western Con-
ference Championship is a fitting
climax to this season's play. The

succeeded in completing an almost
impossible task. That of going an

year's squad almost accomplished
this feat, bot failed by bowing to

Coach Leroy Weir had almost his
entire 1944 squad intact this year,
which gave the netters a decided
edge over their foes. The laurels were
not won, however, by last year's
strength alone. Newvcomers Jack
Hersh, Gordon Naugle, and Bill Hay-
nes were decided assets to the team,
and succeeded more than once in
"bringing home the bacon."
As the Big Ten tennis playoffs go
into the finals with the victor al-
ready known, the teams line up in
this order. Michigan, 13 points;
