'45 rid Card omplete;
Opener with Great Lakes

Season Begins September 16;
Army, Navy Games Ineluded

By BUD ROVIT
Plans for opening the Michigan
grid season with the perenially-pow-
erful'Great Lakes eleven, were com-
pleted today, to round off an impos-
ing ten game schedule which in-
Oludes Army and Navy, as well as
many top-flight Middle West ag-
gregations.
The games with the highly vaunt-
ed Middies and Cadets will both be
played away ,at Baltimore and New
York, respectively. Coach Crisler,
Michigan's athletic director and foot-
ball mentor, has been angling to
place Army and Navy on the fall line-
up for the past five years, but it has
not been possible until now.
In addition to these service elevens,
the Wolverine gridsters will still have
the big powers of the Conference to
contend with, as Ohio State, Purdue,
Minnesota, Illinois, Northwestern,
and Indiana, are also on the sched-
ule.
The squad will be "on the go" from

As Feller Hurls
GREAT LAK-ES, Ill., May 28-(IP)-
Great Lakes suffered itsfirst base-
ball setback of the season here to-
day, bowing to the Toledo Mudhens,
5-2, despite a brilliant mound per-
formanceby Bobby Feller and Denny
Galehouse of the Bluejackets.
Feller struck out eight and yielded
four hits, the Mudhen total, in five
innings, but the Bluejacket infield
committed two costly errors, allow-
ing Toledo to shove across its five
markers in thle fifth.
Galehouse held the Mudhens hit-
less in the last four innings.

the opening kickoff against Great
Lakes on September 15, to the final
gun at the end of the annual Buck-
eye clash on November 24, with only
one open date slated.
"Coach Crisler, commenting on the
rigorous program, admitted that, "It
is one of the toughest schedules,
Michigan has ever had to contend
with," and went on to say that, "there
is not one "breather" on the whole
list. Every opponent has the poten-
tiality of upsetting the Maize and
Blue apple-cart."
Plans for football practice have not
been completely formulated as yet,
but it is expected that training will
commence in the latter part of July.

Wolverine Nine
Wins Twin Bill;
Leads Big Tetn
Squad To Encounter
Broncos Tomorrow
By 'PHIL WITTENBURG
Michigan's victorious Wolverines
proved their strength last Saturday
in a twin bill with the University of
Wisconsin at Madison as they romp-
ed over the Badgers by the scores of
11-1 and 8-1.
Red Louthen annexed his third
Conference win in the opener and
his sixth of the season as he held
Wisconsin to five hits. Bo Bowman
repeated his teammate's feat in the
nightcap but only struckout four to
Louthen's eleven.
Wolverines Strong
On the offense the Wolverines
proved too much for their bewildered
opponents, knocking out 28 base
blows in both tilts. On the field
Michigan also excelled and Coach
Ray Fisher remarked, "The team put
on their best performance of the
season and really left the Wisconsin
squad disappointed at not being able
to match our strength."
Also he said that his outfield trio,
Bill Gregor, Don Lund, and Bill Nel-
son, convinced him that it ranks
about the best, defensively, that he
has ever had.
Coach Fisher, commenting on Wis-
consin's showing, said that their pit-
ches Jaroch had a bad day and that
their team was not as good at the
plate as Indiana, but that their
shortstop, Ackeret, played exception-
ally well.
Leading Big Ten
This double win gave the Michigan
team undisputed leadership of the
Big Ten with six wins against no
losses. The next competition comes
from Purdue, where the Wolverines
travel for a pair of games this week
end.
Coach Fisher said that the Boiler-
makers have scored many runs in
their encounters, which shows that
they have some batting punch, but
the fact that their opponents have
scored more runs indicates that the
Wolverines should have no trouble
if they continue their present brand
of ball playing.
Before the Purdue series, Michigan
journeys to Kalamazoo Wednesday
for a return match with Western
Michigan.r

Ohio State's Stars
By JEAN PETTWIGREW
Although eliminated from the sin-
gles and doubles final competition,
the Maize and Blue net squad snag-
ged their second consecutive Con-
ference title, at Evanston Sunday.
Ohio State's Aris Franklin defeat-
ed 17-year old Bill Rogers of Wiscon-
sin, 6-3, 6-2, to cop the singles title.
In the semi-finals, Rogers had down-
ed Wolverine captain Roger Lewis in
the major upset of the Saturday
play-off's. Lewis had previously beat-
en the Wisconsin ace.
The number one doubles spot was
gained again by Aris Franklin and
I his brother Alex, both Buckeye net-
met, when they defeated Stewart
Cornell and John Adams of Minne-
sota, 6-3, 6-3. Michigan's Lewis and
Hersh, Naugle and Boucher, and
Johnson and Post were defeted in
the semi-Final play.
Wolverines Won No Titles
Without winning the singles or
doubles titles, the Wolverine tennis
squad closed a successful undefeated
seaso~n by seizing the Western Con-
rence championship,
Although Coach LeRoy Weir had
most of last year's squad for support,
newcomers Jack Hersh, Gordon Nau-
gle, and Bill Haynes were a big asset
in winning the title.
Lewis in Number One
Captain Roger Lewis played num-
ber one spot throughout the season
with Jinx Johnson in second berth
and Jack Hersh in third. Gordon
Naugle and Dave Post played fourth
and fifth, respectively. Lewis teamed
with Hersh to hold down the number
one doubles spot while Naugle and
Boucher played second and Johnson
and Post, third. This squad held a
decided edge all season, right up to
the laurel-winning play this past
week-end.
The final summaries are: Michi-
gan, 18 points; Ohio State, 12%/2
points; Purdue, 9; Minnesota, 8%;
Chicago, 5; Wisconsin, 5; Illinois, 4;
Northwestern, 2/2; Indiana, 0.
Derringer Sets

For 6th Victory
CHICAGO, May 28 - 0P) - Paul
Derringer dumped the Brooklyn Dod-
gers into fourth place today by hurl-
ing the Chicago Cubs to a 5-3 vic-
tory over the Rookie Ray Hathaway,
making his first Major League start.
It, was the sixth victory for the vet-
eran righthander.
The Brooklyn freshman yielded
three runs in the first frame on two
walks, an error, an outfield fly and
Ed Sauer's single. With one gone,
French Bordagaray's wild throw gave
Don Johnson a lift. hill Nicholson
and Phil Cavarretta strolled, Len
Rice scored Johnson with a fly to
right and Sauer batted home two
with a one-base to left.
Singles by Ed Stanky, Goody Ros-
en and Augie Galan and a double by
Dixie Walker tied it up for the Dodg-
ers in the third but the Cubs took
the lead in the fourth on successive
hits by Stan Hack, Johnson and
Cavarretta.

"Illinois simply had the better track

Doherty announced that Michigan
would follow its traditional custom
and not compete as a team in any of
the national championships to be
held during the next several weeks.
"We intend to disband the squad,"
he said, "and we definitely will not

"You realize," Barclay continued,
"that golf is one of the most unpre-'
dictable of all sports. Sometimes
when you are on the links you'll card

you'll over-play the green missing

and everything seems to break the

mentor.
Ohio compiled a score of 603
points, counting the four lowest
marks of the five-man squads par-
ticipating in the tournament, which
was probably one of the closest
scores ever recorded in the fifteen-
year history of the Conference
matches. The Wolverines final mark
was 629 which was three higher
than the second place Wildcat
team.
Winning the individual crown,
were Howard Baker andJohn Lorms,
members of the Buckeye club, with
each shooting 148 for the 36 hole
singles play on the Wilmette course,
dividing the medalist honors. John
Tews, with 152, came through as
jVMichigan's top man and shares the
number two spot with Louis Lick and
Jarvis Knutson, both of Minnesota.
Scores for the other Maize and
Blue linksmen who teed-off in the
championship matches were Phil
Marcellus 156, followed by John
Jenswold 157, Bob Ernst 164, and
Captain Paul O'Hara 165.
Saturday at the University golf
course, Barclay's charges, in quest
for their sixth consecutive victory of
the season,- will complete the 1945
schedule encountering Western Mich-
igan.. Earlier in the year, the Wol-
verines trounced the Broncos 17/2-

praise for several of his charges who
put up admirable showings while go-
ing down to defeat. In particular,
he singled out Walt Fairservis, who
finished a scant half-stride behind
Ross and Bob Hume in the mile;
George Shepherd for his fine run-
ning in both the 440-yard dash and
the mile relay; and Dick Forrestal,
who finished ahead of Shepherd but
behind Illinois' Bob Kelley in the
quarter and staved off a desperate
Illini challenge on the final relay
lap.
Other Wolverines given special
mention were Charles Dykema for his
fourth place in the low hurdles and
John McNab, who tied for second
place in the high jump at 6 ft. 1 in.
McNab has cleared that height only
twice this year, the first time at the
Conference indoor meet which Mich-
igan won by one point.
