"In addition to being a topnotch
two-miler, Justin Williams is one
of the best captains a Michigan
track team has ever had."
This candid opinion expressed
by Wolverine track coach, Don
Canham, just about sums up the
short but brilliant track career of
:Justin Williams which will be con-
cluded in the record books upon
graduation this June.
* ~* *
markable thing about Williams is
the fact that in the 1949-50 in-
door season, the Michigan cap-
tain consistently bettered his time
in the two mile race and eventu-
ally wound up as the fourth best
two-miler in the Big Ten.
In indoor meets this past sea-
son, Williams improved his time
in four successive meets. He cov-
ered the two-miles in 9:34.5
against Wisconsin, 9:29.7 against
Illinois, and in the closing dual
meet with Ohio State, he ran
9:26 flat.
As a fitting climax to his sea-
son feats, he ran his best indoor
race in the rousing Western Con-
ference finale at Illinois.

The victory meant the clubs

settle their scrap for possession of

NEW YORK-The 1950 major
league baseball season opened in
explosive, fashion yesterday with
action featured by upsets, thrilling
comebacks, lusty hitting, large
crowds, and a deluge of balks.
The heaviest explosion occurred
in Boston's Fenway Park where
the world champion New York
Yankees turned an apparent hope-
less defeat into victory by blasting
five Red Sox pitchers for a nine-
run eighth inning. The big out-
burst enabled the Yankees to come
from behind and defeat Boston,

it out of the 1949 pennant on the
final day of the season. When the
Yankees staged their big rally they
were behind 10-4.
Philadelphia's hustling young
Phillies provided the biggest
upset by shelling Don Newcombe
off the mound in the second inn-
ing and going on to whip the
National League champion
Brooklyn Dodgers, 9-1. It was
the Phils who acted as stepping
stones for the Brooks' march to
the flag last year, losing the final
game of the year to the Dodgers.
Detroit's improved Tigers knock-
ed Bob Lemon out of the box in
the eighth inning to defeat the
Indians, 7-6, in 10 innings before
65,744 in Cleveland. That was the
biggest opening day crowd in the
nation. Johnny Lipon's fly drove

The Chicago Cubs, who weren't
supposed to have any batting
punch, clubbed out 13 hits, in-
cluding three home runs, to down
the Cincinnati Reds, 9-6. The
Reds accumulated 14 hits, includ-

Newell as Bask(

Newell was on the campus to con-
firm the appointment.

JUST 10 days ago the college an-
nounced Wilbur N. (Sparky) Stal-

deal fell through.
Newell, 34, had an excellent
record since he took over at the
west coast university in 1946.
His 1948-49 team won the

Square Garden in 1949.
This past season the team had a

Braves Sign


Bill Taft, who helped hurl Mich-
igan to ties for the Big Ten cham-
pionship in 1948 and 1949, has
signed to play baseball for the
Denver Braves.
Taft was signed for the Denver
club by Scout Jeff Jones of the
Boston Braves and was immediate-
ly assgined to Evansville of the
Three-I League.
In 1948 Taft was the number
two pitcher for Michigan, and
last year was the leading moundi-
man until sidelined with a sore
arm late in the campaign. During
the two seasons he won ten of
12 Big Ten games.
