WR ILE SNOW IS still falling in southeastern Michigan, below the
Mason-Dixon where the grapefruits grow the annual baseball pil-
grimage and spring practice sessions are well under way . . and the
inevitable sore arms and legs that go with getting back in shape after
"the soft winter has cast its plague across the training camps..
Down Arizona way where the world'; champion Cleveland In-
dians and the New York Giants have set up camp, the yearly series
between the two squads is in full swing with the tribe holding a
slight upper hand . . . but Leo Durocher's boys are proving no
pushover . .. and speaking of the Lip, word from Tucson has it
that the ex-Brooklynite has toned down to a pleasing howl ... the
change is attributed to the new Mrs. I). (Lorraine Day).
M'anager Lou Boudreau of the Indians is as paunchy as ever, and
is slowing up afoot, but in the batter's box lae's as sure as he's ever
been .. . the other day he came to bat with two out of two on, one run
behind. and slapped a single to clean the bases and win the game..
aroud the Tucson camp they say he has a couple of good playing1
years left..;
AND) LOU HAS a great bunch of rookies to take over those infield
spots when lie, Ken Keitner and loe Gordon head for the sidelines..
Al Rosen, Artie Wilson, and Orestes Minoso all show real promisej
around the basepaths . .. Minoso seems to be the best of them all and $
is outshining Rosen at third base..
In Lakeland, the home of the 'Tigers they're all marvelling
over the rapid recovery of ailing hurler Art lioutteman . ., some
express hope that he may even pitch this year ... Billy Evans is
keeping him on the active player list..
Hal Newhouser is considered the best conditioned player in the
Bengal camp and is ready for regular starting roles . .. Neil Berry is
bothered by a sore arm, and is worried that it may be an injured
nerve...
fH.E NATIONAL League champion Boston Braves are suffering from
multiple sore arm trouble ..,. Bob Elliot, Eddie Stanky and Tammy
Hlolmies are all victims of the early season malady..
In a rccent Giant-Indians tussle Bob Feller attempted his
famed "pick-off" play -. .. but~ with rookie Artie Wilson at short,
someone got the signals mixed and (Rapid Robert's toss went into
center field...
The Braves have announced that former Michigan athlete Jack
Welsenburger is definitely in their plans for the future. . . they're,
going to try hiim out at second and third but they don't feel he'll be
ready for the big time until 1951...
CASEY STENGEL the Yankee's new t:oss is pessimis;tic about Joe
DiMaggio's 1949 activity . . . the Yankee Clipper has been bothered
considerably by his old heel injury and is having difficulty covering
ground in the outfield, although his hitting is up to par ... about four
steps is as far as he can go for a fly ball..
A Negri} southpaw, Roy Welmaker, walked into the Cleveland
camp the other day and offered his unsolicited services ... Bou-
dreau gave hiim a chance and he was an immediate success . .. he
has bee~n great on relief for the tribe and was the winning pitcher
both Monday and Tuesday...
Johnny Sain is in top form. already ... he's looking so good that
Braves' manager Billy Southworth is ready to let him go the route any
dlay now .. , such an occurence so early in the season is a rarity..
The Brown's Zach Taylor was all smiles the other day when his
boys slammed out an uphill 12-11 win over the Cubs . .. it was the
Brownies' first win in the Grapefruit league

Michigan's gymnastic team willi
get their final tuneup- for the Big
Nine meet when they engage theI
Wisconsin Badgers at the I-M
building this Saturday.
It will be the first dual meet be-
twccei the two schools.
LAST1 YEAR., however, Newt'
Loken's gymnasts hooked up with
the Badgers in a triangular affair
with Chiicago and the Wolverinesj
barely mnanaged to nose out Wis-
consin 34-331- 2 and win the meet.
In last year's Conference tus-
sle the Wolverines again edged
the Badgers by finishing in third
p~lace while Wisconsin could dot
no better than fourth.j
The two rivals have one th ingf
in common. Both revived the sport !
two years ago after it had been
dropped in the middle '30's. Ini
Wisconsin's case financial cdiff i-
culties caused the sport to be
dropped in, 1936.
BADGER COACH Dleane Mory is
handicapped because of the fact
that gymnastics is new to the

finals last year he places fifth in
the all-events.

NEW YORK - (R) -- The four'
Cinderella teams of the National
invitation Basketball Tournament
will square off against each other
in the semi-finals of the Madison
Square Garden meet tonight.
Loyola of Chicago will face
Bradley U. in the 7 p.m. (CST)
opener and towering Bowling
Green, the tourney's new fa-
vorite, will take on hostling San
Franrisco in the 8:45 p.m. wind-
~up. The first game is rater a
;tars-up. Bowling Green is a
four-point choice to down San
)rrancisco.
The victors then will play it, oat,
for the championship Saturday
night with the losers clashing in a
consolation contest.
The four survivors made a clean
sweep of the meet's four seeded
quintets, Kentucky, St. Louis,

Utah and Western Kentucky, on
"Mad Monday." It was no doubt
the greatest series of upsets in
basketball history.
Loyola and Bowling Green
weren't supposed to be in the
tourney in the first place and
Bradley and San Francisco
weren't expected to go beyond
the first round. At least the
N.I.T. committee felt that way
when it seeded Kentucky first;
St.. Louis' defending champions,
second ; Utah third and Western
Kentucky fourth.
Loyola <and Bowling Green just
squeezed into the tourney on a
"rain check." Tihe N.I.T. commit-
ace, unable to pick one additional
New York team to fill the last
berth, picked three local quintets
and added the Chicago and Ohio
fives to make up a field of 12.
