Wolverine Ba
Nine Defeats Wayne for
Second Straight Victory
Michigan Bangs Out Seven Runs in Second
Inning To Triumph, 13-1; Rosemna Hits Homer


Associate Sports Editor
Scoring seven runs in the second
and four more in the third innings,
Michigan's diamond nine breezed to
a lop-sided 13-1 victory over Wayne
at Northwestern Field in Detroit
yesterday for its second straight win
in two days over the Tartars.
Three Michigan moundsmen com-
bined to set the Wayne crew down
on six hits and a single tally, the
run coming off Bliss Bowman in the
fourth frame. Cliff Wise and Dick
Bddycombe were the other hurlers
with Wise doing a four inning stint
and Bodycombe pitching the ninth.
Rosema Cleans Bases
Tom Rosemia, Wolverine first-
sacker, provided the game's high-
light as he poked a long home run
with the bases packed in the big sec-
ond frame. The blow was a lusty
one, bounding among the parked cars
on Grand River Avenue.
Batting honors, however, again
went to the Maize and Blue's right-
fielder, Bob Chappuis. The Toledo
star connected for three hits in' five
trips to the plate and also drew a
base on balls. Walt Kell, Ralph Hous-
er, and Jim Brown added a pair of
hits to the Wolverines' attack.
Wolverines Clinch Game In Second
The game was strictly no contest
after the second frame. Ed Hooven,
who started in the box for Wayne,
gave up two hits, walked two and hit
one before being relieved by Don
Brown. Brown fared little better, and
by the time the side was retired
Coach Ray Fisher's team had pushed,
across seven tallies to sew up the
Brown started the raljy for Michi-l
gan with his first single of the game.
Elmer Swanson walked, and Bowman1
was hit with a pitched ball to jam
the sacks. Kell flied out, Brown scor-
ed and Swanson took third. Paul
Veith was then safe on a fielder's
choice as a second run crossed thec
plate. Houser walked to again fill
the bases and then Rosema came
through with his four-base clout.

Chappuis kept the fire going with
a single and after Dom Tomasi had
walked, Brown scored Chappuis with
his second hit of the inning. Swan-
son, also up for his second time in
the stanza, flied to left and Bowman
bounded out, short to first.
In the third Kell started another
Wolverine scoring spree when he was
safe on an error. Veith singled to
right and Houser singled Kell home.
Rosema drew a pass. Chappuis pop-

ped to first, but Tomasi doubled to
deep left field to again clean the
bases. He was thrown out by ten feet
however, as he attempted to stretch
the hit to a triple.
Wayne broke the ice in the scoring
column in the fourth on Myron Ur-
dea's triple and Don Torres line
single to right. Michigan's final runs
came in the eighth on a single by Kell,
and three costly Wayne errors.

Short Returns
To Strengthen
Track Squad
Record Holder Enrolls
To Study Journalism
Bolstering Ken Doherty's 1946
track squad, which has felt the effects
of graduation and Navy transfers, is
Hugh Short, former Georgetown Uni-
versity star and world's record holder
in the 600-yard run.
After being discharged from the
army last November, Short decided to
enroll at Michigan in order to study
journalism. Although he has not
yet regained his pre-war form, Short's
past record speaks for itself.
He began chalking up outstanding:
performances while attending Hill-
side, New Jersey, High School. When
he was only a p;ep-school competitor,
Short turned in a :49.5 clocking for
the quarter-mile, and in winning the
National Interscholastic 1000-yard
run in 2:19.2, he set a record that
has not yet been topped.
While at Georgetown University,
Short competed in all the large indoor
invitational meets. At the Millrose
Games in 1943, he tied the world's
record for the 600-yard run, nosing
out Michigan's Bob Ufer in 1:10.2.
Proving to be not only an individual
star but a team competitor as well,
Short anchored the Georgetown mile
relay team to many victories, includ-
ing a world's indoor record of 3:17.2
in 1942.
During his two and a half years in
the army, Short saw action with the
infantry in Italy. Even in service
he found time for some competition.
Short captured the 400-meter title in
both the Fifth Army and Mediterran-
ean Theatre meets. While running
in the Purdue Relays this year, he
met several trackmen with whom he
had competed in these army meets in
Returning to college after the war,1
Short found himself in the same1
position as many other veterans with
family responsibilities. Working two
days a week in addition to carrying a
regular academic program, he has<
had only a limited time for track
Nevertheless, Short has turned ing
some creditable performances. In the
Indoor Conference championships he
kept close to the heels'of Illinois'
Herb McKenley in a :48.1 quarter-
mile which tied the world's record
held by Michigan's Bob Ufer.
In its four duels with Illinois,
Michigan's mile relay team has had
to be satisfied to take second placey
honors behind the Illini's fast quartetI
anchored by McKenley. Short be-
lieves, however, that the Wolverine
foursome of Val Johnson, Bill Haid-
er, Horace Coleman and himself, will
be an improved relay team this out-
door season.
Track Coach Ken Doherty is rely-
ing on the services of fleet-footed
Hugh Short to provide the necessary
impetus to shove Michigan's outdoor
rack machine into high gear and
point it toward another duel with
llinois for the outdoor Conference
Dormiory 3A
To Compete for

Vet Hoop Title
In the West Lodge basketball races
Dormitory 3"A" won over 6 "A" by
a 25-15 score to enter the final play-
offs for the championship. The win-
ners will meet either the 9 "A" five,
of the Lion League, or the 6"B" team,
conquerors in the Cougar league who
play their semi-final match on Tues-
day. The 3"A" men were victors in
the Tiger league by virtue of their
3-0 record, and are lead by the Lam-
pe brothers, Roland and Royce, and
by Jim Hesler. The 6 "B" team gained
the right to meet the 9"A's" by con-I
juering the quintet from Dorm 4, in
league playoff necessary because of
a tie, by a low 12-7 score.
In the bowling competition all
eight teams are in the scramble forI
first place with the Dorms' 1 and 6"
boys leading the league with a 6 to
record. Three teams are tied for
hird place with a 5-4 score, among

dropped three games to Dorm 6 dur-
ng the past week.

Golf Teams



W ins

With the weatherman providing a
setting of cloudless skies and mod-
erate winds, the 1946 golf season
was launched yesterday when the
Wolverine linksmen overwhelmed
Michigan State by a match score of
24-3 on the University course.
Getting off to a bad start, Dave
Barclay, playing in the number one
spot for the home squad, carded a 76
game to cvercome a four stroke lead
in the bottom medley to defeat Jim
Funston, 2-1. A sand trap which
had cost Barclay four extra swats in
the early stage of the match forced
him to play the underdog role until
the 11th hole when he finally hit his
stride finishing the match in bril-
liant style.
Ottmar Beats Noble
Dale Ottmar, Michigan State's
number two man, came from behind
to defeat Dune Noble, 2-1. Noble, who
had taken the first medley of the
match, 41-44, lost his advantage
when he missed four straight putts
and Ottmar's 83 game bested the
Maize and Blue linksman's 86 count.
In the second foursome, number
three man, Pete Elliott, turned in the
best game of the day when he downed
big George Teale 75-82. Elliott took
both medleys to win the match, 3-0.
Bill Ramsey shot an 83 game to bet-
ter Jim Anderson's mark of 86 adding
another 3 points to the Wolverine
match score.
Schalon, Kessler Win
In th bottom foursome, both Ed
Schalon and Roger Kessler downed
their adversarys with 3-0 matches.
Schalon shot a 78 score to whip Bill
Kent's 82 and Kessler's mark of 79
was good enough to better Stewart
Helliwell's by 10 strokes.

Pete Elliott's two dueces in the top
half of his match with George Teale
and the Brilliant pace which Dave
Barclay hit in the second nine holes
of -his contest with Jim Funston
highlighted the entire match.
OSU Captures
Track CoQuest
COLUMBUS, Ohio, April 20--P)--

handily. Ted Wonch, of MSC, finish-
ed in a four-way dead-lock for first
in the pole vault by clearing 12 feet

CLEVELAND, April 20-(P)-Dick
Wakefield broke out of his early sea-
son batting slump with a bang here
today, driving in five runs with a
single, double and triple as the De-
tuoit Tigers downed the Cleveland
Indians 7 to 0 on Hal Newhouser's
two-hit pitching.
Detroit thus, jumped from fourth
to second place in American League
standings, a game back of the un-
defeated Red Sox. Manager Steve
O'Neill nominated Frank (Stubby)
Overmire, Detroit's tiny left-hander,
to hurl against Bob Feller Sunday in
the last half of the two-game series.
Wakefield Dominates Scoring
Wakefield, who had only one hit
in his first nine times at bat this
season, had a hand in the scoring
of all but one of the Detroit runs to-
His fourth inning double enabled
Hank Grenberg to score from first.
His sixth inning triple punched across1
Eddie Mayo and Barney McCosky
to highlight Detroit's four-run spree
on a single hit. Wakefield scored from
third after Pat Mullin's fly in the big
frame and an inning later singled
with the bases loaded to score Eddie
Lake and Mayo.
Indian's Home Opener Spoiled
The Tigers, making the most of-six
hits to hang the defeat on Ham-
tramck Steve Gromek before Cleve-

land's opening day crowd of 42,775
paid, thus kept the pressure off New-
houser, who permitted only two
singles in becoming the first big
league pitcher this season to hang
up two victories.
Only seven Cleveland batsmen
reachedfirst base, five of them on
passes, and none of them advanced
past second. Pat Seerey's single in
the first inning and Gromek's hit
in the fifth, both to left field, were
the only Cleveland safeties as New-
houser fanned seven men, increasing
his strikeout production to 15 in two
Tigers Break Gromek Jinx
Gromek, who had little of his well-
known "spell"- over the Tigers today,
stayed through six innings and al-
lowed only four hits, which, added to
four walks and a couple of Cleveland
errors, were worth five runs. Don
Black pitched the seventh and eighth,
yielding the last brace of Tiger runs,
and Pete Center hurled the ninth for
the Indians.
Although Greenberg's walk in the
fourth inning, followed by Wake-
field's run-producing double after two
were out, gave Newhouser the only
run he needed, the Tigers really salt-
ed away the verdict with their four-
run outburst in the sixth.
