Coaching Post
Question Still
Clouds over the 'Michigan
coaching scene failed to clear up
definitely as basketball coach
Ozzie Cowles and Charlie Hoyt, in
line for the head track position,
claimed that they were still "un-
Cowles, who returned from
Minnesota late Friday night,
said that he had approximately
a week to make up his mind.
"The Minnesota regents meet
Friday, so I have until Thurs-
day to let Frank McCormick
McCormick, athletic director at
the Gopher school, will probably
submit Cowles' name to the
Board. If the Michigan mentor
does deside to return to his home
Mtate to take over the cage reins,
the announcement will be re-
leased from Minneapolis.
In the meantime, Cowles
plans to confer with Michigan
athletic director, Fritz Crisler,
tomorrow morning.
Hoyt talked to Crisler yester-
day afternoon before watching
the track team work out. Because
of certain business affairs, the
present "gentleman farmer" was
in no hurry to give an answer to
the track coach question.

Michigan's golfers, one down at
the dinner bell, came out fighting
in the afternoon to edge North-
western 141/2 to 12/2 in a wind-
swept match over the University
Course yesterday.
It was Dave Barclay who
brought home the bacon, but Pete
Elliott was the man who put it in
the pan and fried it.
After the best ball match in the
morning, that began - with the
thermometer at 35 and the course
still soggy after the rain, Michigan
was at the long end of a 5-4 count.
Barclay Shoots 74
Barclay kept the Wolverines in
the afternoon fight by posting a
74 and playing the kind of game
that brought him the NCAA Title
last year.
It was a great comeback for a
man who was four down after the
first five holes to rear back taking
the next four then going on to
earn a hefty 21/2 points while his
opponent, Fred Fassnacht was
getting /2.
However, it was the Elliott-Ab-
rahams tussle that the whole meet
pivoted on.

CHICAGO, May 8--(A)-The 10-
year - old National Basketball
League today appeared in danger
of collapse. This followed disclos-
ure that three key members will
jump to the rival Basketball As-
sociation of America and Commis-
sioner Ward (Piggy) Lambert will
quit his $15,000-A year job.
The Indianapolis Kautskys,
Minneapolis Lakers and Fort
Wayne Zoliners are expected to
announce their switch at a league
meeting here Monday when Lam-
bert also is scheduled to submit
his resignation.
The BAA, only two seasons old
but firmly entrenched in large
cities, and the NBL were booked
to meet jointly here Tuesday for
a bi-lateral player draft meeting.
The National blowup was con-
firmed today by a spokesman of
the Indianapolis Kautskys, who
said the three jumping clubs con-
sidered the BAA "a tougher
league" with bigger crowd poten-
The break-up still would leave
eight National League clubs-An-
derson Packers, Tri-Cities Black-
hawks, Syracuse Nationals, Osh-
kosh All Stars, Toledo Jeeps, She-
boygan Redskins, Flint Dow A.C.
and the Rochester Royals-but
some observors believe that the
powerfulsRochestereentry also
might hop to the BAA.
The BAA's present membership
includes Washington, New York,
Boston, Providence, Chicago, St.
Louis, Philadelphia and Baltimore.

The Illini who had won six in

No. 1 man, Andy (Ace) Paton
started the Wolverines off on the
victory trail with a 6-3, 6-3 vic-
tory over bespectacled Les Steers.
Steers had some trouble getting
his serve working and frequently
double-faulted in the first set, a
factor which contributed much to
his downfall.
The smooth - volleying Paton
thus took his fourth win in five
starts and further increased his
stature as a leading contender for

... sinks winning putt
18th hole they were all even, and,
with most of the pairs in and the
rest decided Elliott realized that
he had to half the hole to give the
Wolverines a tie, or win the hole
to clinch the victory.
Two Good Tee Shots
Both men got off good tee shots.
Abrahams socked his approach
onto the green about 30 feet past
the pin. Elliott got hold of one
that faded to the left and landed
in the flanking trap.
With the pressure on, Elliott
blasted outhbeautifully with a shot
that rolled to a stop about four
feet from the cup.
Abrahams' first putt stopped
about six feet short leaving him
another good one to try. His sec-
ond didn't quite get there, howev-
er, and Abrahams had to take a
bogey five. Elliott stepped up and
rammed home his four-footer for
a par four and the match.
Team Shoots Good Golf
Michigan's golfers shot excel-
lent golf in the afternoon with
Rog Kessler and Dave Barclay
literally taking the Course apart
with 74's.
Elliott got in with a 76, Doug
Beath turned in a 77, Ed Schalon
took an 80 and Ken Berke came
home with 83.
The Wildcats found the tricky
course a little rough on their par
golf but they all got in the high
seventies and low eighties.
Jim Lamb paced their attack
with a 77. Bill Stricklen and Bob
Abrahams took 79's,Jim Bassett
shot an 80, Fred Fassnacht a 81

]~oi the fir st time since the
war began, the University of
Michigan girls golf team teed off
in an intercollegiate match, and
made an auspicious return by de-
feating Michigan State and Mich-
igan Normal in 3 point Nassau
match play.
The Michigan quartet com-
posed of Janet Brown, Barb
Dewey, Ellen Van Wagoner, and
Mary Ann Courtright, young
sister of former Wolverine golf-
er Corky Courtright, gained a
two point decision over the
Spartan gals and a plus six
points over the Ypsilanti con-
Shirley Spork, a little red-head
with a mighty game, blasted the
tough University course with a
low medal 79. Ranked third among
the top woman golfers in the
state, Miss Spork carried the
brunt of the Michigan Normal
team, but it wasn't enough. The
Wolverine femmes were strong all
the way down the line and had
little trouble.
Scoring followed the varsity
plan of allotting one point for
winning each nine plus an addi-
tional for the entire eighteen:.

The Philadelphia Athletics pulled
the first triple play of the young
1948 major league baseball sea-
son today and retained their slim
first place lead by walloping the
Chicago White Sox, 16-1.
The triple started in the sev-
enth inning when second base-
man Pete Suder snared a liner off
the bat of Chicago's Taffy Wright,
flipped it to shortstop Eddie Joost
who caught Luke Appling off the
sack. Joost's throw to Ferris Fain
nabbed Tony Lupien.
WASHINGTON, May 8--(A')-
Larry Doby, Cleveland's Negro
outfielder smashed a 450 foot
homer today in the eighth in-
ning to help his team score a 6
to 1 win over Washington.
Gene Bearden, a rookie left
hander, making his big league de-
but, held the Senators to three
Doby's drive was the most pow-
erful smash hit here since Babe
Ruth sent the ball over the center
field wall in 1922.
The home run climaxed a five
run outburst off Sid Hudson.

CHICAGO,hMay 8 - (A)
Johnny Schmitz, who had
dropped three straight decisions
for the Chicago Cubs this season,
pitched his first triumph, a 6-0
victory over the Brooklyn Dodg-
ers today.
The southpaw curver allowed
only five hits and was in trouble
in only two innings, the fourth
and ninth. A two-out single by
Billy Cox followed by Ed (Duke)
Snider's double put men on sec-

ever, looked at a third strike to
end the game.
