POOR RICHARD'S ALMANAC:
'Got Along Fine With Yanks'--Wakefield

By TED PAPES
Michigan's golf team, sporting
*some novel modifications, extend-
ed its current winning streak to
,tree in a row yesterday by out-
lasting Michigan State, 15/2-11/2,
in a match at the University
course.
With two of the Wolverines'
,top golfers, Bob Olson and Dick
Evans, watching from the side-
lines, Keith LeClair and De an
&Lind combined a pair of preci-
sion rounds to give their team its
offensive spark.
* * *
THEY TIED for medalist hon-
Sors with even par scores of 72 in
a match which included best ball
and individual competition simul-
taneously over an 18 hole stretch
played by three foursomes.
With a slightly complicated
scoring system, there were nine
points to be earned by each
group of four players.
LeClair and Lind smothered
Spartans Bob Tansey and Rex
Newman 8/2-/2 in positions one
and two. That huge Michigan edge
failed to hold up, however, as Jack
Zinn and Cliff Taylor of the visi-
tors throttled Leo Hauser and
John Fraser 8-1 in the second
foursome.
* * *
FRASER TURNED IN the third
lowest Wolverine score, a 76, but
couldn't quite balance out Tay-
lor's fine 73. Hauser encountered

* *

a variety of difficulties and skied
to an 83.
Still clinging to a one point
margin Michigan looked to its
fifth and sixth men to bring
home the victory. Chuck Mac-
Callum and Pat McCloy strug-
gled past Art Hills and Don
Perne of Michigan State for a
6-3 edge to turn the tide. Both
MacCallum and McCloy were
handicapped by frigid putters
throughout the afternoon.
Lind, the sophomore whiz, felt
right at home in the number two
spot. He rimmed the cup on a 40-
foot eagle attempt at hole num-
ber nine settling for a birdie four
and a 35 at the turn. He also
birdied 11 to go two under par,
but bogeys on 13 and 15 nullified
his advantage,
* * *
LeCLAIR'S ROUND was his sec-
ond straight par effort, the other
one helping to spank Detroit Tues-
day. He also negotiated the front
nine in 35. Among his four birdies
was a three on the 365 yard eighth
where he canned a 16-foot down-
hill putt to break up a Spartan
threat.
Lind's finest golf shot came on
number 12 where he blasted his
second with a driver to hit the
bank of the green and roll to
within five feet of the cup, giving
him a bird on that difficult 420'
yard hole.

By HAROLD TANNER
"Who owns Dick Wakefield?"
That is the question that is
puzzling baseball fans today and
must be answered by Commis-
sioner A. B. Chandler within the
next few days.
NOT ONLY do fans and baseball
men want to know who owns the
29 year old outfielder, but Wake-
field himself stated in an inter-
view at his Ann Arbor home yes-
terday afternoon that this is the
question which is holding back his
rejoining a major league team.
The affable ex-Wolverine
baseball star who was signed off
the Michigan campus in 1941
by the Detroit Tigers stressed
that he would like to continue
playing major league baseball
but qualified his statement with
certain specific terms.
Dick declared: "I would be very
happy to join the Chicago White
Sox provided they add $5500 to
my contract." The Chisox who re-
ceived Wakefield from, the New
York Yankees for Johnny Ostrow-
ski and cash, have previously re-
fused to meet this figure and
when Wakefield declined to join
the club, cancelled the trade leav-
ing the decision resting in Chand-
ler's lap.
When queried on the possibility
of his rejoining the New York
Yankees, he declared that he did
not feel that he could rejoin a
team that had traded him and
had emphasized that they did not
want him.
* * *
DICK WAS HAPPY with the
New York club and was happy
with his Yankee contract. He
thinks that the Yankees have a
good chance for the American
League flag and would have liked
to stay with them and possibly
help them in the pennant chase.]
When he went to the New
York team from Detroit, he
hoped to gain a first string
berth, but realized that he would:
have to wait for his opportunity.
During yesterday's interview he
declared that he did not think
that he had been given an ade-
quate opportunity to prove him-
self in championship competi-
tion.
With reference to his relations
with his Yankee teammates dur-
ing his short stay with the club,
he declared: "I got along fine
with the Yankees. They are a
great bunch of men."
* * *
HE REFERRED to a story in a
New York paper after his trade
to the effect that the Yankee
players were happy to see him go
and did not get along with him.

PITTSBURGH - ( ) - Bos-
ton's Johnny Sain survived a
first inning mauling by the
Pittsburgh Pirates yesterday,
held the Bucs to a four-hit total
for the game, then led his mates
on an 11-run binge in the ninth
that resulted in a 15-4 Boston
victory.

--Daily-Burt Sapowitch
WAKEFIELD AWAITS DECISION - Pending Commissioner
Chandler's verdict on his major league baseball status, Dick
Wakefield is biding his time at his Ann Arbor home. Declaring
that he definitely desires to remain in the majors, Wakefield yes-
terday refuted well circularized claims that he would only play
with the Yankees or Red Sox. The one-time Detroit Tiger stated
that only a $5,500 salary difference blocks his participation with
the Chicago club.
The Yankee players held a meet-
ing, and 30 men signed a letter
refuting this statement and say-
ing that they were on amiable re-
lation$ with him forcing the re-
traction of the story by the New
York writer.
In other comments about the
press, Wakefield labelled ridicu-
lous the statement attributed to
him saying that he would play
only for the Yanks or Red Sox.
He also classed the rumor about
his immediate retirement to build
a hotel in Ann Arbor as equally
fallacious.
