U-

Major League
Roundup
By The Associated Press
Detroit made it two in a row
over the Cleveland Indians today
as Al Benton and Hal Newhouser
teamed up to beat Rapid Robert
Feller, 4-2. George Kell led the
victors with four hits in as many
trips to the plate. He was re-
sponsible for all four Tiger runs,
batting in three of them and
scoring the other.
In Chicago, the White Sox
and the Browns split a double-
header, the Chisox taking the
first game, 5-2, with Gillespie the
winning hurler. Brownie Cliff
Fannin pitched his club to a
2-0 win in the nightcap.
Over in the National League,
Ewell Blackwell gave Pittsburgh
only four hits as Cincinnati took
a 6-1 triumph in the afternoon's
only contest.
In a night contest, Boston
whipped the Philadelphia Phil-
ies, 7-3, with Johnny Sain win-
ning his fourth of the year. The
high-flying Giants took a 7-3
beating from their arch rivals,
the Brooklyn Dodgers, as Ralph
Branca pitched a masterful sev-
en-hitter before 51,780 fans, the
largest crowd ever to witness a
night ball game.
Meanwhile the Cubs moved into
undisputed possession of first
place as Bob Chipman pitched
Chicago to a 10-3 win over St.
Louis.
While over in the American
League the Red Sox and Yankees
moved into a virtual tie for sec-
ond. The Yanks had their four-
game streak snapped as they
dropped a 5-4 decision to Wash-
ington, while the Bosox snapped
a four game losing streak.E

Special To The Daily
EAST LANSING, May 27 -
Baseball became the only major
sport Michigan failed to defeat
their arch-rivals from Michigan
State in, as the Spartans added
another line to their Big Nine
petition yesterday by walloping
the Wolverines 8-1 before an over-
flow crowd of 6,000 at Jenison
Field.
Paced by the beautiful four-hit
pitching of Robin Roberts and the
heavy stickwork of Pat Peppler
and Ed Sobzak, State repeated its
earlier season 2-1 win but with
a little more emphasis this time.
Most of this emphasis came in the
fourth when the lads from East
Lansing jumped on Bud Rankin
and his successor Art Dole for six
hits and six runs.
Hansen Starts it Off-,
Marty Hansen started things
off for MSC in the big inning
with a booming triple to the score-
board in right field. Sobzak sing-
led Hansen home, took second on
a sacrifice and scored on a single
to center by Bucky Walsh. Rob-
erts then sent Rankin to the
showers with a 400 foot triple to
the flag pole. He scored a mom-
ent later when Peppler rifled a
double to center. Frank Bagdon
singled Peppler home and raced
home himself with the sixth run
of the inning on an error by third
baseman Charley Ketterer.
Wiese Drives in Run
Michigan had jumped to a lead

in the first when Bump Elliott
beat out a hit to third and Bob
Wiese doubled him home. State
tied it up in the third on two
singles andna wildhpitch, and
picked up their final marker in
the fifth on four walks by Michi-
gan's third pitcher, Bob Hicks.
Hicks settled down and retired
the last nine men in order to turn
in a creditable relief job. The only
other hits off Roberts were a sin-
gle by Elliott in the third and an-
other by Weisenburger in the
fourth. It gave the husky right-
hander his second win of the sea-
son over Michigan and a 6-2 rec-
ord for the season. Rankin was
charged with the loss.

SPORT SCRAPBOOK
By JACK MARTIN, Daily Sports Editor
"EVERY BIG NINE FOOTBALL TEAM will lose at least one game
next fall." That's Mr. H. O. Crisler speaking, and Michigan's
head gridiron tactician has been known to utter some very sage say-
ings during his coaching career.
The correctness of Crisler's prediction becomes quite evident
if one takes even a brief survey of the prospects and prayers of
Western Conference coaches at the close of their annual Spring
outings.
Illinois and Michigan will both be strong again, but Minnesota
is looking more and more like a surprise package while Northwestern,
under its new master, may also startle more than a few opponents.
The Hoosiers of Indiana, at present, appear weaker than last year's
third-place outfit, and neither Wisconsin or Purdue show possibilities
of doing much more than they did last fall. Iowa on the other hand,
is a good dark-horse bet, and Ohio State, unpredictable and always
dangerous, may come up with something under its newest regime.
The Wolverines, of course, have lost Elmer Madar, Paul White,
and Bob Wiese. But 25 other veterans of various years are return-
ing and several men displayed definite progress in the brief spring
work-outs. To fill the fullback hole left by Wiese, Crisler has
newcomer Dick Kemnthorn, and a comfortable quantity of good,
experienced halfbacks should be on hand.
TJHE QUARTERBACK SITUATION, which originally was a sore
spot, may be solved if Howard Yegges plays next fall as the Con-
ference bigwigs have declared is permissable. In addition a gentleman
named Walt Teninga is coming back to Ann Arbor. As a freshman
in 1945 he was a brilliant half, but that ouarter spot may becKon mm.
The ends seem no difficulty, with a host of tried regulars on
hand led by Len Ford and end-around artist Bob Mann. Tackles
and guards will be bolstered by such standouts from spring prac-
tice as the third edition of the Wistert clan, Alvin, Ralph Kohl,
and Pete Dendrinos. J. T. White will be back at center, aided
possibly by Dan Dworsky, former fullback.
Illinois' champions will have 34 lettermen back next fall. The
line suffered most from losses - Alex Agase being the principle de-
parture; but ends Mickey Owens and Sam Zatkoff will be back, plus
Lou Agase and Bob Prymuski. The Illini backfield again looks like
dynamite on paper, with Captain Art Dufelmeier, speedy Paul Patter-
son and Julie Rykovich all scrapping at halfback, Perry Moss at quar-
ter, and Russ Steger and Ray Florek at full.
No one can predict what Coach Bernie Bierman will master-
mind at Minnesota next September. The Gophers regained their
old Golden tint in their final games last season, and it's no bad
guess predict a continued upsurge.
AT NORTHWESTERN Bob Voigts replaces Lynn Waldorf, but whq
will replace Vic Schwall and Ed "Buckets' Hirsch. Frank Aschen-
brenner and Art Murakowski will be there, however, together with
Ralph Everist and sprinter Jim Holland, so the Wildcats won't be any
bunch of tame kittens.
Eddie Anderson has Dick Hoerner and Emlen Tunnell coming
back to Iowa and Wolverines well remember how troublesome this
Hawkeye duo can be.
The Buckeyes of Ohio have another new administration now
which seems to be driving right at the difficult problem of making its
Colombus sojourn a permanent one, Wes Fesler will have good back-
field talent to help him, such as Jerry Krall, Alex Verdova, Joe Whis-
ler, Ollie Cline (1945), and Dean Sensenbaugher (1943), but the line
is questionable.

Michigan's chances of retain-
ing the only Conference crown
they nowholdnrest squarely on
the shoulders of the six men who
will represent the Wolverines on
the fairways of the Purdue Uni-
versity Course Friday and Satur-
day in the Western Conference
golf championships.
As yet Coach Bert Katzenmeyer
is undecided as to who those men
will be. He's named five who
will definitely make the trip and
a 36-hole medal event between
three others is being held to de-
termine the sixth.
Barclay Leads Group
From last year's champions will
come Captain Dave Barclay, Ed
Schalon, who finished third in the
meet, Rog Kessler, and Bill Court-
right. The fifth man will be
Johnny Jenswold, champion in
1944. The sixth position will go
to the low man in the three-way
match now under way between
Bill Ludolph, Pete Elliott, and
Jack Vezina.
When asked for his opinion on
each of the men making the trip
Coach Katzenmeyer called Schal-
on "the best medal play golfer on
the team" and said the Courtright
was "the best competitor on the
team. Not enough can be said
for 'Corky's' wonderful competi-
tive spirit."
He went on to pick out high
spots of each man's game and
Pipp Is 'Titlist
In Horseshoes
Ben Pipp, a junior in the Engi-
neering School, needed no slide
rule to measure his accuracy in
pitching horseshoes yesterday as
he defeated George Allan, 21-11,
10-21, 21-18 for the championship
in the All-Campus tournament.
Pipp, son of former New York
Yankee first baseman, Wally Pipp,
and Allan have helped Sigma Phi
advance to the final bracket of
the fraternity horseshoe tourney
which will continue throughout
this week. Sigma Phi also moved
another notch closer to the fra-
ternity tennnis title as they de-
feated S.A.M. in their last match.

his drives are low and stay out of
t ie wind. But Coach Katzenmey-
er went on to say that the best
part of Barclay's game is his
short game. "He's excellent on ap-
proach shots and his putting eye
is deadly." In the five matches
he played against Big Nine com-
petition this year Barclay took 3
matches and dropped 2.
Schalon Praised
The youthful Wolverine mentor
was high in his praises of Schal-
on, saying that Ed has exception-
ally long and accurate drives and
hits the longest ball on the team.
The rest of his game is well above
average, but his putting and driv-
ing are superlative. Schalon has
proved that he merited this praise,
for his record is one of the finest
on the squad. He has been con-
sistently in the low 70's and has
a record of 2 and 2 and 1 tie for

games also caitne in for some praise
from Katzenmeyer, lie called the
young sophomore golfer a fine
prospect and looks for a good per-
formance from Kessler this week-
end. Kessler has also shot some
fine golf with a round of 74 his
best thus far. His >ecord against
the men he'll face this weekend is
1 and 2.
Jenswold Seeks Lost Crown
Jenswold, seeking to regain his
lost crown, was termed "a con-
sistent golfer" by Coach Katzen-
meyer, who went on to say that
no one part of his game could
be singled out. Jenswold's com-
petitive record reads 1 win and 3
losses and 1 tie against Big Nine
opposition.
Courtright, in addition to being
a fine competitor, "is marvelousI
