Michigan's baseball squad moved
a notch closer to the Conference title'
yesterday by blasting Wisconsin out
of the race in two games, sending
the Badgers down, 11-1, in a morn-
ing contest and repeating its victory
in the afternoon, 8-1.
Gaining their fifth and sixth wins
in the Conference, the Wolverines
drove Wisconsin's starter, Gene Jar-
och, to the showers behind the five-'
hit pitching of Red Louthen in the
first game, treated hurler John Rob-
inson similarly as Bo Bowman pitch-

enth, when a walk and two hits
brought a run home.
In winning, Michigan collected 14
hits from hurlers Jaroch and relief
pitcher Lloyd Auman. Louthen, who
racked up his sixth victory in as
many starts this year, struck out
eleven Badgers.
The second game was a repetition
of the first, with Bowman pitching
masterfully to subdue the Badgers,
allowing only five hits. The Wol-
verines, on the other hand, collected
14 hits off Robinson and Jaroch, who

Northwestern failed to break into the
scoring column.
The Wolverines, as expected, scor-
ed heavily in everything from the
440 up, but were virtually shut out
in the balance of the events. Coach
Ken Doherty's men managed only
9 56 tallies in the five field events,
the hurdles, and the sprints.
Dead Heat Twins Come Through
Michigan opened in fine style by
placing four men in the mile as Ross
and Bob Hume came home in a dead
heat in 4:26.3. Kelley got part of it
back by beating out Dick Forrestal
in :48.4 in the quarter-mile, second
straight conference 440 win outdoors.
Walker made up more of the deficit
in the 100-yard dash as he broke the
tape in :9.9 for the first of his three
wins, and the Illini moved out in
front to stay as Walker came back
in the high hurdles for another firt.
Julian Witherspoon, Wolverine ace
sprinter, was scratched after quali-
fying, when he pulled a leg muscle"
n the 220 trials.

S. SWINTON, who were in-
terned in a prisoner of war
camp for more than three
years during the Japanese
occupation of Manila, re-
turned to Ann Arbor. Hav-
ing regained most of the 35
pounds he lost while a pris-
oner since being liberated
on Feb. 3, Prof. Swinton
announced that he expects
to resume his teaching du-
ties in the engineering
mechanics department this
summer. He arrived in this
country May 10, after mak-
ing the 32-day trip from
the Philippines where he
had originally gone in 1940
with his wife to teach at
the University of Manila.
Asked when the first indi-
cation came that the
Americans were approach-
ing his camp, lie said that
he and his fellow prison-
ers had heard machine-
gun fire for about three
days. Then about two
hours before the Yanks
rolled into the camp, they

did not receive two meals."
Prof. Swinton said that
contact with the outside
world was very limited. At
first the prisoners were
able to see their Filipino
boys and obtain messages
and packages from them.
But then the regulations
became more strict and the
Filipinos were only able
to bring packages into the
camps without seeing any
of the internees. Finally
this was cut out altogeth-
er and the prisoners had to
resort to subterfuge to keep
any outside contact. The
most successful method
was to include messages
and packages in the cas-
kets brought in for pris-
oners who had died. Prof.
Swinton was in the prison
camps throughout the oc-
cupation with the excep-
tion of a month he spent in
a hospital. He is now look-
ing forward to seeing his
son, Stan, a former Uni-
versity student and City
Editor of the Daily, who

the University of Cologne
arrived at the University.
The banner mailed March
16 by Lt. Versel Case, Jr.
bears a six foot high black
swastika on a circular
white field. The huge tro-
phy, which will join oth-
ers sent by Michigan fight-
ing men all over the world
was addressed to President
Alexander G. Ruthven. A
letter accompanying the
package said: "I am send-
ing you a Nazi banner as
a war trophy. I captured
the flag from the Univer-
sity of Cologne. Let it ever
rest at the University of
Michigan by request of a
fighting member of the
class of 1942." Case, who
took an A.B. in economics
from the University is with
the 104th Infantry Divi-
sion. His home is at Cason
City, Mich.

SCIENTIFIC explanation
has come forth as to why
Ann Arbor has so much

cooled in the process, these
lose some of this moisture.
Nevertheless, these air
masses retain enough
moisture to provide Ann
Arbor with rains such as
those of the past month.
In this region, cold masses
of air called "continental
polars" come down from
Canada, push in under the
maritime polars, causing
them to rise and be cooled,
and thus lose their moist-
ure. We have had an ex-
ceptionally long period of
rainfall (!)D, Prof. Bel-
knap explains, because the
air masses have been mov-
ing very slowly, due to the
area of high pressure over
the Atlantic. He points out
that the east coast has not
been having much rain,
