for individual Big Nine honors
last year, Schalon has been play-

Behind Schalon are Rog Kess-

Chuck MacCallum boasts the

The match will be a thirty-six
hole affair with best ball competi-

dual play in the afternoon.

A masterful three hit pitching
job by Indiana hurler Bill Tosheff
dropped Michigan's baseball team
further into the Western Confer-
ence depths, as the Hoosiers took
a 1-0 decision from the Wolver-
ines, yesterday afternoon.
The loss was the third for the
Michigan nine in Big Nine play.

TOSHEFF allowed only two
singles and a double to set the
Wolverines down with apparent
ease. He gave up only one walk

WASHINGTON - Carl Scheib
limited Washington to four hits
last night as the Philadelphia
Athletics injected two of their five
hits into a two-run first inning
to defeat the Senators, 2-0.
BOSTON-The undefeated New
York Yankees, with strange faces
in many positions, won their

team showed a healthy respect
for Michigan natators as they
named Wolverines to the No.

day and at the same time spoiled
Boston's American League home
opener by whipping the Rd Sox,
Tex Hughson made his first
start of the season and didn't do
too well. The tall righthander,
who went to Texas to pitch in the
hot sun last season after two arm
operations, walked six Yankees
and was rapped for five hits in
six innings.

CLEVELAND - Mickey Vernon
celebrated his 31st birthday yes-
terday with a 10th inning single
that gave the World Champion
Cleveland Indians a 4 to 3 victory
over the Detroit Tigers before a
home opening day crowd of 63,-
The Tribe's new first baseman,
obtained in a trade with Wash-
lngton, lashed a single past third
baseman George Kell that scored
Larry Doby from second. Doby
had reached first on an error by
second baseman Neil Berry and
advanced to second on a sacri-
fice by Manager Lou Boudreau.
Dizzy Trout, who relieved star-
ter Freddie Hutchinson in the

ninth, was on the mound when
Vernon came through with his
game-winning blow.
* * *
CHICAGO-The Chicago White
Sox fashioned a four-run fourth
inning, including Gus Zernial's
homer, for a 5-2 home opener
win over the St. Louis Browns to-
day before 9,568 fans today.
Although Marino Pieretti had
to leave the game at the outset
of the eighth inning, he was
credited with the victory.
* * *
ST. LOUIS-A four-hit pitch-
ing job by angular Al Brazle and
long-distance hitting spree by his
mates including Stan Musial's
first home run of the year, gave
the St. Louis Cardinals a 9-2 ver-
dict over the Chicago Cubs yes-
terday for their first victory of
the season.
PITTSBURGH - Ralph Kiner,
with a grand-slam homer- and
Clyde McCullough, with a run-
scoring triple, enable the Pitts-
burgh Pirates to come from be-
hind yesterday and win their
home opener from the Cincinnati
Reds, 5-4.

NEW YORK - The New Yor%.
Giants and Boston Braves played
a 6-6 tie yesterday in the Polo
Grounds opener when rain and
darkness forced the umpires to
call the game after the teams
playe nine innings in a steady
Major Lea oue

sacker for Indiana proved to be
the big gun in the Hoosier attack
which rapped seven hits off Mich-
igan's Bill Taft. Ritter pounded
two triples and a single and drove
in the game's only tally in the
sixth inning.
* * *
TOSHEFF opened the Hoosier
sixth by popping out to shortstop
Bob Wolff, but diminutive second
baseman Woody Litz smashed a
single into left. Harry Moore went;
down swinging, but Ritter scored
Litz with a tremendous drive into
right center field, going into third
standing up.
Bill Stearman walked, but Taft
put out the fire by slipping a third
strike by Gene Ring.
Indiana threatened in the
first frame, when Ritter hit his
first- three bagger with two
down, but Taft pitched over it
forcing Stearman to ground out
short to first.
Again in the ninth, the Hoosiers!
put two men on base when Stear-
man singled along the left field
foul line and moved to second
when Ring was hit on the elbow
with one of Taft's fast balls. They
got no further, however, as the
rangy Wolverine hurler got Bob
Moore on a pop-up and struck out
John Kyle.
* * *
MICHIGAN'S only threat to
score came in its half of the
fourth when Ted Kobrin walked
with two out and Jack McDonald
blasted a double into left center,
but Kobrin was cut down at the
plate on a perfect relay from
Stearman to Ring who fired it in
to catcher John Gorkis.
McDonald also bunted a sin-
gle in the seventh, but got no
further as he was doubled off
first when center-fielder Harry
Moore made a nice catch of
Wolff's fly.
Michigan's other hit came off
the bat of Taft who sent a single
into center.
Despite Indiana's seven hits,
Taft pitched a good game, striking
out 12 Hoosier batters and issuing
only two bases on balls over the
nine inning route.
The two teams tangle again to-
day at two o'clock, with Dick
Smith taking the mound for the
Wolverines, and Don Colnitis go-I
ing for the Hoosiers.

Today and Sunday the Mic h-
igan Sailing Club will play host
to seven other Mid-West schools
for the third annual Michigan In-
vitational regatta.
Saturday the regatta will start
at 9:30 at Whitmore Lake. As
many of the eight races in each
division, as possible will be run
off on Saturday and the remain-
der will be sailed on Sunday. Races
in the 'A' and 'B' divisions will be
sailed alternately.
* * *
THE REGATTA will end at two
o'clock Sunday afternoon so that
the visiting schools will have
plenty of time to get back home.
In the event that all of the sched-
uled races have sailed the teams
will be pro-rated. This takes into
consideration the performances of
boats which have not been sailed
by all the schools.
The Michigan Sailing Club is
furnishing all the boats used in
the regatta. They are ten foot
dinghies which conform to the
specifications of the North
American Yacht Racing Union.
The boats will be rotated so
that every team has a chance
to sail each boat. This elim-
inates any advantage one team
might gain from sailing a su-
perior boat.
Skippering the Wolverine boats
will be Danny Cortopassi and Ed
Stuart. Their crews will be Red
Oppenhiemer and Pam Wagner.
Ed Bainbridge and Bob Preston
are also expected to skipper in
some events.

SAFE-Jack MacDonald beats
out a bunt single in the seventh
inning of yesterday's game with
Indiana. He was wiped off the
base paths when Bob Wolff hit
into a double play.
Athletic .Board
To Consider
Fencing Status
Varsity recognition of fencing
will be considered at the next
meeting of the Board in Control
of Intercollegiate Athletics.
This meeting scheduled for early
in May, will decide the final fate
of the Scimitar Club petition.
* * *
ON MONDAY, the Managers
Club passed a resolution, recom-
mending the petition, under ad-
visement, to the Board in Control.
Previously it had been reported
that the managers had tabled the
motion, under advisement, till
their next meeting.
These petitions, if approved,
would restore the sword sport to
the varsity status it enjoyed
from 1927 to 1934. This would
result in a team supported by
University funds which would
perform competitively as an of-
ficial representative of Michi-
They would compete in Big Nine
fencing, joining the seven other
schcols who now sponsor. sword
Along with the petitions, were
recommendations about coaching
since a varsity team would re-
quire a full-time coach.

AGONY-Indiana shortstop Gene Ring is comforted by teammates
after being hit in the elbow by Wolverine pitcher Bill Taft in the
ninth inning of yesterday's game. The Hoosier was removed from
the game.
