Hal Cook and Gordon Naugle
paired up in the number three

Chance Slight for Big Nine
Games inc 150-Pound Class

There is little possibility of es-
tablishing a program of 150-pound
football in the Western Confer-
,nce next fall as had originally
been planned, Assistant Athletic
Director Ernie McCoy said yester-
Many University students have
acclaimed this plan for light-
weight men, and the Michigan
atheletic department is highly in
favor of it. The group, headed by
Director H. 0. Crisler was main-
ly responsible for obtaining Big
Nine sanction of the program.
Except for Wisconsin, all oth-
er Big Nine Schools seemed to
have generally disregarded en-
tering teams in the proposed
new league.
Though there may be new de-
velopments with regard to 150
pound football at the next West-
ern Conference meeting at the end
of this month, McCoy said, the
chances are very slim for having
a squad at the University of this
type next fall. He also said that
there will be no organized intra-

mural competition for men ih this
An association of 150 pound
football teams similar to the one
proposed by the Big Nine operat-
ed very successfully in the East
before the war. The league was
composed of Pennsylvania, Prince-
ton, Harvard, Yale, and Rutgers,
and followed a regulai' schedule.
It was first planned that if
other mid-western schools might
take the interest Michigan has
shown for 150-pound pigskin
competition, the sport would be-
come popular to the public, and
"the little guy" would have a
chance to play big-time football.
Coach McCoy said there is also
a plan, which has secured Big
Nine backing, that would set up
a regular schedule for the B'
teams of the conference.
These squads would be composed
of men of any weight not qualified
or experienced enough for the var-
sity team. Each year a man spent
on the 'B' team would count the
same as a year on the varsity with
regard to eligibility.

early season shape.
Detroit Defeats
Athletics, 4-2,
Red Sox Lose
By The Associated Press
Detroit's high flying Tigers
moved into a commanding lead in
the American League pennant race
today as they edged the Athletics
4-2 in a 14-inning thriller.
Dizzy Trout pitched sterling ball
for all but the last inning when
he gave way to Al Benton as the
Tigers scored twice in their half
of the 14th. Meanwhile curve-
baller Bob Muncrief put an end to
the Boston Red Sox winning
streak and dropped them two
games behind the Bengals.
Muncrief pitched well enough
to notch a 2-1 triumph as the
Red Sox defense fell apart. Ted
Williams continued to batter the
left-field wall as he pounded a
double against the score board and
then scored Boston's only count-
Over in the National League the
Brooklyn Dodgers dropped their
third straight game as Ralph
Kiner found the range and drop-
ped two homers into "Greenberg
Gardens" to pace Pittsburgh to
a 7-3 win over the Dodgers.
Clint Hartung, rookie Giant
slugger, made his debut on the
mound and though he lasted only
five innings he got credit for the
Giants third straight win. Mel
Ott's club pasted the league-lead-
ing Chicago Cubs 8-3 as they
pounded out 14 hits.
Meanwhile in Cincinnati the
Reds smashed out five home runs,
two by Eddie Lukon to trounce
the Phillies, 11-3. The win moved
the Reds into sixth place only a
game and a half behind the skid-
ding Dodgers.

This afternoon at 3:30, the In-
diana Hoosiers move into Ferry
Field to meet the Wolverines in
the first game of their weekend
Coach Ray Fisher was undecided
who would be the starting pitcher
for the Maize and Blue. At pres-
ent, the Wolverines' number cne
hurler, Cliff Wise is suffering from
a sore arm and it is questionable
whether or not he will start. Wise
worked out yesterday and he said
he felt ready to go. If Wise is un-
able to start, Art (shut-out) Dole
will probably get the starting as-
signment for the Wolverines.
Still Have Title Hopes
Indiana has a 3-2 record in
Conference play, and they still
have a mathematical chance for
the title. However, with only six
games left for them to play it will
be almost impossible to overhaul
Coach Paul Harrell will bring a
Hoosier team composed of seven
lettermen. Captain Al Kralo-
vansky has supplied plenty of the
offensive punch, and the Bricker
battery team, pitcher Ralph and
catcher Art, have been giving both
offensive and defensive support.
Ralph Bricker won three games
last season as a freshman, and
compiled a neat .500 batting aver-
age to go with it.
Five Top .300 Mark
With five Wolverines currently
hitting well over the charmed
three-hundred mark, Coach Fisher
is expected to string along with
the team that has fashioned an
even .500 mark in Conference play.
With a lusty .396 average, di-
minutive Charlie Ketterer is cur-
rently leading the Wolverines in
hitting. The starting outfield of
Weise, Vieth and Bump Elliott is
one of 'the few in the Conference
made up completely of men bat-
ting better than .300.
Illini Meet Purdue
In another important series in
Conference play Illinois with an

8-2 record will tangle with the
Purdue Boilermakers at Cham-
paign. A double victory for the
Illini will be good enough to clinch
another Conference crown for the
title-conscious boys from Cham-
Michigan has met both the Il-
lini and the Boilermakers on the
diamond this season. The Wol-
verines dropped both games to the
Illini while they were able to gar-
ner a split from Purdue.
ZBT Defeats
Lambda Chis
Spreading their runs over four
innings, ZBT defeated Lambda
Chi Alpha, 10-8, and became title
holder of league 1II in the I-M
fraternity softball division.
The Zebs took an early lead, tal-
lying two runs in the first and
four in the fourth. With two out
in the fourth Mickey Lowenstern
walked, Jim Lewy singled, and
Max Arnstein singled scoring Low-
enstern. When Gil 19ombach
doubled, Lewy and Arnstein came
home. Hal Rosen walked and
"Memphis" Wurtzburger doubled
cleaning the bases, but that ended
the fourth inning effort.
Behind by four runs in the last
frame, Lambda Chi Alpha put on
a rally that fell short by two

Lloyd House captured the res-
idence halls horseshoes champion-

teams pitched two winning games

title of fraternity softball league

Coach Ken Doherty announced
that Captain Charlie Birdsall will
be on the sidelines.j

by an injured foot during the
outdoor campaign. lie took sec-
ond in the triangular meet with
Indiana and Purdue two weeks
ago but failed to place against
the Buckeyes last week.
In the absence of Birdsall Mich-
igan will depend on Alex Morris
and Justin Williams to score in
the distance grind against Illinois'
Paul Huston. Morris turned in a
winning time of 9:39.8 against
Ohio State in the two-mile with
Williams third.
