Coach Barclay
Still o ptiiiistic
Despite Defeat


DETROIT, May 14-(/P)-The De--
troit Tigers' eight, game winning
streak blew up today in the face of
20-hit Washington uprising that pro-
duced a 15 to 1 triumph for knuckle-
baller Roger Wolff.
Wolff, coasting to his third vic-
tory of the season, had a four-hit
shutout until Tiger left-fielder Anse
Moore homered in the ninth.
After tagging left-hander Frank
(Stubby) Overmire for three runs
on a five-hit attack in the third, the
Senators really went hit-wacky in
the fifth, scoring eight times off
Tommy Bridges and George Caster
as 12 men batted and seven of them
hit safely.
The Nats slugged out eight extra-
base blows, including Buddy Lewis'
three-run homer in the fifth and se-
ven doubles, three of them in the
ninth as four more runs scampered
Lewis, with a homer, double and
single in six times at bat, knocked in
five runs and Jeff Heath drove in
four with three doubles and a single
in as many trips.

It is still comparatively early in
the season," he said, "and we haven't
lost anything yet. We are aiming at
the Conference play-offs and I still
think that if the fellows play the
way they are capable of playing, we
can win."
Commenting on the failure of
the team to win away from home,
Barclay said, "There's no question
but that playing on the home course
favors a team. But if we were play-
ing well and were more confident,
we could adjust to the differences
in the courses."
He cited the Notre Dame match as
an example of this. The greens in
South Bend were very different from
those of the University course and this
upset the Wolverine golfers. Dave
Barclay three-putted several times
when only about eight feet from the
cup, and Pete Elliot had the same
difficulty on the Irish greens, Bar-
clay related.

games for the Wolverines while the
Irish suffered their second loss in
10 contests.
Cliff Wise, who hurled the first
five frames, was given credit for
his third victoiyof the season as
against no defeats. The lanky
right-hander was touched for three
singles and a lone run in the fourth
inning, but retired the side in order
in the last inning he worked.
Except for Don Robinson's boot of
Billy Hassett's grounder in the third
inning, Wise would have retired the
first nine men in order. Bliss Bow-
man and Earl Block each worked a
pair of innings, Block yielding the
only other two hits made by the Irish.
Except for Robinson's error, the
play of the Wolverine infield was
exceptional. Dom Tomasi completed
an unassisted double play in the
sixth inning while Tomasi teamed
with Robinson and Tom Rosema
to complete fast double play to end
the ball game. Four errors were
credited against the Irish infield,
two by third baseman George
Schneider in the second inning.
The Wolverines increased their lead
to three runs in the second inning,
which saw two runs on two hits and
two errors. After Rosema fouled to
the first baseman, Bob Chappuis
hit a sharp single to right. Tomasi
reached first on Schneider's first
misplay, Chappuis going to second.
Elmer Swanson popped out but
Wise hit a timely single through the
box for the secod Wolverine tally.
Walt Kell reached first on the
Irish's second error of the inning
and Tomasi crossed the plate on the
Robinson lead off the third frame
with a single and stole second, mov-
ing to third on Jack Weisenberger's
foul fly to the first baseman. Then
after taking long leads off third on
pitcher Barrett, the speedy shortstop
stole home, beating the throw to the
plate by several feet.
Three successive singles brought
home the only Notre Dame tally in
the fourth. Michigan was held
from further scoring until the

sixth when it scored another run
on a hit and an erorr. The Wolver-
ines ended the scoring with two
more runs in their half of the sev-
enth inning on a pair of hits and
the fourth Notre Dame error.

Variety Is the Spice of New
PEM Spring Athletic Progi'ai

Changes which were introduced in
the men's physical education classes
last fall have proved extremely suc-
cessful and have produced some
"rather startling results" according
to Howard C. Leibee, Director of Phy-
sical Education for Men.
No longer a course made up of
monotonous calisthenics and fatigu-
ing exercises, P.E.M. holds color and
interest for the students enrolled on
the attendance sheets of Waterman
Gymnasium. Tennis, golf, swimming,
gymnastics, softball, and badminton
are a few of the spring sports open
to students of F.E.M. classes who
prove themselves able to pass the
basic motor fitness tests now re-
quired in the course.

So far, over 90 per cent of the men
have graduated from the daily work-
out program to participate in a sport
of their own choosing and are taking
advantage of the expert instruction
offered to them on the field.
The competitive element, hereto-
fore lacking in the course, is now
considered a major factor in encour-
aging students to keep in shape. For
example, the recent gymnastic tour-
nament which was staged in Water-
man Gym was the highlighting event
of Coach Newton Lokan's gymnastic
class composed entirely of P.E.M.
Tournaments like this are staged
in all the other sports listed on the
spring term schedule.
