By MARY LU HEATH
Michigan's baseball squad annexed its second Western Conference
title in a row, and neared a perfect Big Ten season for the second straight
year, Saturday afternoon by beating Purdue, the team which stood between
it and the crown in last season's clinching game. 9-2 and 4-3, in a double-
header at Lafayette.
In tucking the title away for another year, the Wolverines broke loose
with 26 hits, 14 in the first game and 12 in the nightcap, to beat the Boil-
ermakers. By doing this, the squad - .___-- --..-

WHILE OUR TOP executive. Hank Mantho, who usually "Makes these
Rounds," is doing his best to throw off what he will undoubtedly de-
scribe as a "severe" case of the German measles, we will attempt to carry
on and hit some of the highlights in the sports world. Hoping he'll be
back soon to run down our efforts to write sports, we'll proceed to move
to the business at hand:
/E HEARD by way of the vine that Elmer Swanson, last year's
hurdle star and first baseman has recently received an honorable
discharge from the Marine Corps. Swanson, who captured both the
high and low hurdle crown at the Indoor Conference meet at the Chicago
Stadium last year, certainly will Be a welcome addition to Coach Ken
Doherty's crew, should the big timber-topper return to school. The
reappearance of such an experienced hand, would bolster a department
which didn't score too many points in Wolverine meets this year.
After showing his prowess on the cinders, lie turned to Coach Ray Fish-
er's baseball team in the spring, and proceeded to take over first base. He
batted around .280, and is described by coach Fisher as "a really fine defen-
sive player." He was a member of last year's smooth working infield made
up of Mike Farnyk at third, Bruce Blanchard at short, and Charlie Ket-
terer on second. Swanson's power at the plate, and his steadying influ-
ence certainly will help the 1946 club in its attempt to defend the crown
it cinched Saturday for the second straight year.

'Major Letters
Presented To
Six Linksmen
NCAA Meet Ends
1945 Golf Season
By RUTH ELCONIN
Bill Barclay in his first season as
Michigan's golf mentor, announced
yesterday the varsity letter-winners
for the 1945 links squad.
Six golfers, Captain Paul O'Hara,
Phil Marcellus, John Jenswold, John
Tews. Bob Ernst, and Ken Morey re-
ceived major awards, but Barclay ad-
ded that the team will continue
working, shooting practice matches
in preparation for the NCAA tourna-
ment which will be held June 25-27 at
Ohio State's golf course. The Wol-
verines in the 1945 meet will be rep-
resented by the six varsity lettermen.
Wolverines Take Third
Last year's NCAA contest, at the
Inverness Country Club in Toledo,
saw Wolverine linksmen place third,
coming in behind Notre Dame, which
captured the team title, and Minne-
sota in the runner-up spot.
Bringing their 1945 schedule to a
close last Saturday at the University
golf course, Maize and Blue linksmen,
encountering Western Michigan, de-
cisively defeated the visitors, 16 -
S11. carding their sixth consecutive
victory of the season and making a
final record of seven wins against one
loss. The one club that prevented
Barclay's charges from establishing
a perfect record was Ohio State,
which took the Wolverines 15-12 at

'OWN AROUND BASEBALL practice, the general concensus of
opinion seems to be that with some practice, Tom Rosema, who is
now holding down the first sack, can develop into a real pitcher. This
means that Rosema, who has been leading the team in batting all year,
may possibly be taking his turn on the mound come next season.
Can't help but notice that Bo Bowman, who has been one of the Con-
ference's leading pitchers for the past two seasons, is paying no at-
tention to that baseball saying, "Pitchers aren't supposed to hit."
