SU Thinclads Down

Wolverines, 62-52 in Final Indoor l

Traek Meets
Thinelads To Miss
Annual Penn Relays
Coach Ken Doherty revealed a
re-shuffling of the balance of the
indoor track schedule yesterday
VWiich cancels any Michigan ap-
pearance at the outdoor Penn Re-
lays this year.
Re-scheduled for March 22 is a
trip to the annual Purdue Relays
at Lafayette, while a limited num-
ber of thinclads will be entered in
the Chicago Relays the following
week-end. In addition, on March
15, one week after the Indoor
Conference, the entire team will
go to Chicago for the Illinois Tech
Thinclads Head West
Following the Purdue carnival,
Coach Doherty will immediately
begin preparing the squad for the
outdoor dual clash with the Uni-
versity of California at Berkeley,
April 12. The customary week lay-
off between indoor and outdoor
season will not be taken until after
the meet with the Golden Bears.
In view of this schedule the men
will not be in shape when Penn
Relay week-end rolls around April
"Actually," Doherty declared
yesterday," the chances are that
this year we would have gone to
the Drake Relays in any case. This
follows a policy of splitting Michi-
gan appearances between the two
meets." The Drake Relays in Des
Moines, Iowa, held April 26, also.
Purdue Meet To Be Held
Any possibility that the Purdue
Relays would be cancelled because
of the recent bleacher tragedy in
the Boilermaker Field House was
abolished yesterday when the
Wolverines received a telegram
from Purdue officials stating def-
initely that the meet would be held
as usual.

Aspiring vets Learn Umping
Under GI Bill in Florida Sun
COCOA, Fla., March 1-(R})-The umpire shortage, sharpened by
the muhrooming growth of over 50 minor leagues, is fading daily with
Uncle Sam's help as 196 students receive "ball and strike" tutoring
from professor Bill McGowan.
Umpiring as a profession received a tremendous impetus when
MG wan's college was approved by the Veteran's Administration
under the GI Bill of Rights. Any former serviceman with serious
ambitions toward becoming a "man in blue" can receive govern-
ment aid to cover an $85 tuition fee and sustenance. It is part of
the job training program.

students at the second session,
fully 95 per cent are ex-GI's. For
the most part they are amateur
athletes, unable to make the grade
as players, who wish to remain in
the game.
Not all of the boys will get
jobs but McGowan estimates
he can place at least 75 per
cent. League presidents who
have scouted. the school and
signed students are Wayne Al-
len of the Florida International,
and W. T. } Anderson of the
Georgia-Florida. George Mac-
Donald is in town now, looking

McGowan, the senior umpire of
the Majors who starts his 23rd
year in the American League April
15, has a 10-man faculty which
conducts seven-hour daily class-
es in such subjects as "stance"
"balks", "interference plays" and
"handling situations."
The "handling situations"
professor is Al Somers of .the
Pacific Coast League who has
yet to deal with any "situations"
created by a Leo Durocher.
"Don't carry a chip on your
shoulder" is the standard ad-
vice and the umps are warned
against becoming "rabbit ear-
ed" or paying too much atten-
tion to criticism from the play-
ers bench.
McGowan's treatment for a
Durocher type outburst is' given
in a 42-page booklet that the stu-

"If a manager or player has a

student is told, "Tell him you call-

Occasionally they ride their
brother-students with such gibes
as "robber," "where's your seeing-

Although the students usually
are the only spectators, McGowan
has taken all precautions. There
are no pop bottles in the park,
all soft stuff is sold in paper cups.
Armed Fifth
in Santa Anita
15-1 Shot Triumps
In $100,000 Upset
ARCADIA, Calif., March 1 -()P)
-The mighty Armed fell off Turf-
dom's throne today as Olhaverry,
an 8-year-old grey charger from
Chile, scored a smashing upset
victory in the $100,000 Santa An-
ita Handicap before a roaring
crowd of 85,500.
Astounding the fans who had
installed the long-tailed champion
from the Blue Grass as an even
money favorite, Ohaverry, vir-
tually overlooked as a 15-to-one
shot, came up from behind in the
stretch and crossed the line a
length and a quarter in front of
Stitch Again, with Pere Time third
in a photo finish for the spot with
Armed, rounding out the com-
plete upset, finished fifth, out of
the money, in his bid for the $100,-
000, his third major stake in as
many weeks, and a place as the
No. 2 all-time of the turf.
With a record sum for the race
of $1,044,331 riding on the out-
come, the field of 22 got off to a
good start, with Armed laying
off the early pace grabbed quickly
by Artillery. Jockey Doug Dodson
kept him back until the far turn,
and then moved up to second.
The gold-winning g e l d i n g

After bowing out to MSC last
Friday, Michigan's B team wres-
tlers scored a tie against the Spar-
tan yearling aggregation yester-
day afternoon in a return bout at
the Field House.
The Wolverines won three deci-
sions in the six bout contest, but
were forced to forfeit the heavy-
weight match due to the fact that
there are no eligible Michigan re-
serves in that weight division.
MSC's three decisions plus a de-
fault in the 128-pound brackett
made the tie.
Johnson Scores Shutout
Bob Johnson, Michigan 128
pounder turned in the most im-
pressive performance of the after-
noon as he overwhelmed Jack Han-
cock, MSC bantamweight, 6-0 in
an exhibition match. Coach
"Butch" Jordan commented that
Johnson's performance was his
best to date.
In the 135 pound class, Wol-
verine Ed Grimes defeated Gor-
don Cole 4-3.'Grimes led the op-
ponent most of the way and
seemed to be fully recuperated
from an injury sustained earlier
this season.
Carlson Wins Decision
Phil Carlson defeated MSC's
Bill Mowery 6-4 in the 145 pound
bout. Mowery was no match for
the Wolverine grappler who has
seen considerable varsity experi-
ence during the current campaign.
West Tebeau lost a tightly con-
tested decision to Jerry Breutar of
MSC, 4-1. Tebeau scored an 8-6
victory over his opponent in the
Wisconsin meet last Saturday.
In the 121 pound clash, Michi-
gan's Byron Dean decisioned Don
Rippberger 5-4. Dean, a newcomer
to the squad has made several var-
sity appearances this season. Spar-
tan Pat Sullivan won a 9-2 deci-
sion over Bill Varga in the 155-
pound match.
Heavyweight Stage Exhibition
Michigan State's light-heavy-
weight John Dowell decisioned Bob
Allen 5-3 to maintain quite an im-
pressive winning streak.
The meet closed with two heavy-
weight exhibition matches in
which Don Goldman, of MSC, de-
feated Dave Gomberg and Spartan
Bob Schardly downed Wolverine
Den Verrage.
Cullenbine Reports
To Detroit Camp
LAKELAND, Fla., March 1--(P)
-The Detroit Tigers' last major
holdout worry melted away in an
all-day Florida rain today as Ray
Cullenbine, versatile handy-andy
of the Bengals, came to terms for
a salary estimated at about $20,000
for 1947.
Cullenbine, 32-year-old switch-
hitter who batted .335 for the Ti-
gers a year ago, is scheduled to
move in from right field to take
the first base assignment vacated
by Hank Greenberg, when the big
slugger was sold to Pittsburgh last
Cullenbine, who came to Lake-
land equipped with both outfield
and infield gear, declared "He'd
play anywhere Manager Steve
O'Neill wants me." He filled in oc-
casionally for Greenberg at first
last season and handled the job in
completely adequate fashion. Oth-
erwise he was an outfielder-De-
troit's regular right fielder-and
the club's leading hitter.

sall moved into the lead at the

verine Dick Forrestel came home

ning time of 50.9.
