NCAA basketball playoffs.
The CCNY Beavers, seeking to
become the first team to win the

the Wolf pack's record-smashing
performance in the opening game.
THE FINALS at Madison Square

weeks, will determine an Eastern
Champion to meet the Western
titlist for the NCAA championship
here March 28.
City College's tall, basket-
bopping sophomores are a nat-
ural favorite until somebody
cools them off. In the last two
weeks the Beavers have bowled
over the three .top-ranling col-
lege teams in the country in
their lust for post-season hon-
ors. They took the measure of
Bradley, No. 1 in the Associated
Press poll, and Kentucky, No.

Outdoor .baseball Drills*

4.>

By HAROLD TANNER
It is a well known fact that ath-
letic coaches make a practice of
moaning about their shortages of
talent.
While Michigan's baseball coach
Ray Fisher is not absolutely ad-
verse to moaning of this variety,
he is currently bemoaning the
difficulty of thoroughly evaluat-
ing his material without the ad-
vantages of outdoor drills.
FISHER, who has had his char-
ges working out in Yost Field
House for the past month, is hop-
ing that the weatherman will co-
operate and provide some spring
weather during the next two weeks
so that the Wolverine nine can en-
gage in a few outdoor workouts be-
fore the Southern swing starts
April 7.
The indoor sessions have help-
ed Fisher to gain a partial in-
sight to the playing ability of
his charges but cannot compare

Louis to Tell Decision. Today;
Snead Leading at Greensboro.

with the value of a few outside
drills.
The pitchers working in the nets
for the past month have shown
their abilityto pitch to the hitters
but have not had to prove their
worth when men are on base or
in actual game situations.
AMONG THE OTHER disadvan-
tages of the indoor practices is the
lack of normal lighting.
With the season opener two
weeks off, Fisher, starting his
30th year here, has narrowed
down the field for most of the
starting positions to only a few
men. Many of these posts will
be undecided until after the sea-
son is underway.
Only posts virtually sewed up
are the shortstop and second base
positions where Captain Bob Wolff
and Bill Bucholz, veterans from
last year, reign supreme.
* *A *
THE OTHER two posts in the
infield left vacant by Ted Kobrin
and Jack McDonald, at third and
first base respectively, are almost
wide open. Ted Berce and Gerald
Dorr, both lettermen are the can-
didates for the third base position
while Hal Morrill and Ed Frosch-
eiser are fighting it out for first
base.
Two sophomores - Lincoln
Painter and Douglas Peck -
both rather small, but promising
catching prospects, are giving
Pete Palmer a run for the start-
ing backstop post. Palmer, a
junior, saw action as a substitute
for Captain Hal Raymond last
year.
Seven men are listed for pos-
sible action in the outfield with
three lettermen-Ralph Morrison,
Vic Fryling, and Leo Koceski head-
ing the parade. Morrison, a south-
paw swinger, was a regular last
year while Fryling and Koceski
saw a lot of action as did Lee
Hartzmark.
* * *
FISHER is also in a position
where he can shift Morrill, who
started in rightfield during most
of 1949, Painter or Bob Fancett
to the outer gardens. Fancett is a
pitcher with the potential to be-
come a good hitter.
A big boost for the Wolverines
diamond fortunes, however, would
be a shift in the weather and some
of that sought after sunshine.

The largest field in the history
of Western Conference gymnasts
begins competition in the twenti-
eth annual Big Ten champion-
ships at Iowa City this morning.
Michigan and Illinois top the
nine-team entry attempting to
wrest the team championship
from Minnesota which has domi-
nated the meet for the last two
years.

ALTHOUGH ILLINOIS is fav-
ored, the Wolverines are rated

have a better than an even chance

Most Valuable
Big Tenagter
CHICAGO -(P)-Don Rehfeldt
of Wisconsin, Big Ten scoring
champion, yesterday was named
most valuable basketball player
in the conference in the Chicago
Tribune's annual poll.
The 23-year-old Chicago center
becomes the fifth player to re-
ceive the silver basketball awarded
by The Tribune. He was selected
by vote of Big Ten basketball
coaches and conference officials
after being chosen most valuable
player by his Badger teammates.

REHFELDT is the second Wis-
consin cage star to win The Tri-
bune trophy. The other was Glen
Selbo, who won the honor in 1947.
Walter Osterkorn of Illinois
was runner-up in the final tabu-
lation.
Rehfeldt, a senior, scored 265
points this season. He tallied 229
in capturing the scoring title last
year.
THE TROPHY will be presented
to Rehfeldt at a time and place to
be selected by Harold (Bud)
Foster, Badger Coach, and Harry
Stuhldreher, Athletic Director.
Previous winners were Max
Morris, Northwestern, 1946; Selbo,
Wisconsin, 1947; Murray Wier,
Iowa, 1948, and Dwight Eddleman,
Illinois, 1949.

ference tournament for the past
two years. With an undefeated
season behind them, the first
one in the history of the sport
here, they are slated to show
considerableaimprovement over
their 1948 and 1949 efforts.
Michigan has finished in the
upper brackets fourstimesisince
the championships were initiated
in 1926. In 1931 and 1932, the Wol-
vernes came in fourth. Gymnastics
as an intercollegiate sport was
dropped in 1933, and the third-
place team of 1948 was the first
entry in Big Ten trials since that
time.
ILLINOIS AND Minnesota bring
the longest string of Conference
titles into todays meet. Both teams
have a record of five team crowns
to their credit. The Gophers, be-
sides their victories in the last
two years, won also in 1936, '38,
and '40.
Illinois was Big Ten champion
in 1929, '35, '39, '41 and '42. The
Orange and Blue get the nod
this time on the basis of tre-
mendous strength in tumbling
and all-around plus good bal-
ance in the other five events on
the program.
But the seven-man Michigan
contingent wil present an equally
good balance and an equivalent
strength in trampoline, and paral-
lel bars.
* * *
COACH NEWT LOKEN will
have Captain Pete Barthell and
sophomore Connie Ettl working
all-around for the Maize and Blue.
Barthell will also defend his
crowns in the tumbling and paral-
lel bars, and will work side horse,
flying rings and high bar as well.
Ettl will be entered in the high
bar, parallel bars, rings and
tumbling. Although he has not
tumbled in regular meets this
season, Ettl has been working
out this month on the mats and
is pronounced a definite con-
tender by Coach Loken.
Michigan's strongestbdepart-
ment, trampoline, will be headed
by defending titlist Ed Buchanan,
Gordie Levenson and Tom Till-
man. Levenson and Tillman will
double in tumbling.
Working side horse and high
bar will be Bob Checkley. Aiding
him in the horse will be Jeff
Knight.
The championships will conti-
nue through this afternoon with
apparatus and tumbling as well
as trampoline and all-around.

LAKELAND - The Detroit Ti-
gers pushed over seven runs on
five hits in a big sixth inning
outburst yesterday and it was
enough to beat the New York
Yankees, 10 to 6, in an exhibition
contest.
First baseman Dick Kryhoski,
who cane to the Tigers from the
Yankee _ in the Dick Wakefield
deal, h ghlighted the Tiger up-
rising by clearing the bases with
a three-run double.
LOS ANGELES - An exhibi-
tion game between the Chicago
Cubs and the St. Louis Browns
was called off at the end of five

knocks, including a grand slam

AUSTIN, Tex.-(P)-Joe Louis,
r who is considering a contract to
tour with a circus, said he would
like to win the World Heavyweight
Boxing Championship from Ez-
zard Charles in late September.
He said he will announce his de-
cision on a comeback definitely
tonight at Waco.
4. * .
"I THINK a comeback to win
the Championship would be as
great an honor as retiring unde-
feated," he told reporters. "Nobody
ever has done that."
Money may be the biggest
stumbling block to a Louis-
Charles fight. "I wouldn't take
less than 35 per cent," he said
bluntly.
Louis admitted he was consider-
ing a contract to tour Canada
with the Dailey Brothers Circus
this summer.
*, * *
HE SAID the tour would end
in tim9 for him to train two
months -- if he fights Charles.
Louis talked to Ben Davenport
and Harry Hammill in Gonzales
yesterday afternoon about join-
ing their show. They made him
an offer last year, but he turned
it down.
Louis confirmed that the re-
ported offer of $1,000 a day he
would receive from the circus was
"about right."
Earlier yesterday, in a hurried
interview at the Municipal Air-
Port here Louis denied his con-
ference with the circus men would
affect his future fight plans.
GREENSBORO, N.C. - () -
Picking up where he left off a
year ago, defending champion
Sammy Snead slammed a 33-33-
66 yesterday to lead the first
round of the $10,000 Greensboro
Open Golf Tournament by a
stroke.
The White Sulphur Springs,
W.Va., veteran, leading money
winner last year and again to

date this year, shaved two strokes
from par on each nine of the
6,720-yard , Sedgefield Country
Club course's par 70 layout, a long,
heavy strip after considerable rain
earlier in the week.
* * *
SNEAD, winner of this tourna-
ment three times in the 10 years
it has previously been held, need-
ed all his famed power off the tee
to gain his slender advantage over
burly Clayton Heafner of Char-
lotte. The big blond Tar Heel, who
once was a pro at this course, had
the day's best nine-hole score, an
outgoing 32, and he finished with
nine pars for 67 and second place.
In third place, another stroke
off the pace with 68, came Paul
O'Leary, young Bismarck, N.D.,
professional. He, in turn, was one
stroke -ahead of four rivals, only
others to better par.
The 69 group included Jack
Burke, Jr., White Plains, N.Y.,
the year's No. 2 money winner;
Milon Marusic, Albany, N.Y., Skip
Alexander, North Carolinian now
playing out of Knoxville, Tenn.,
and George Fazio, Washington.
