Scrimmage Ends Spring Football Today

By MARV EPSTEIN
Michigan's version of a spring
f botball game will wind up Coach
Bennie Oosterbaan's two-month
clinic for aspiring gridders this
afternoon at the Stadium.
Starting at 2:30, Oosterbaan and
his assistants will send the largest
gang of tryouts through their
paces since the practices were
inaugurated before spring vaca-
tion. Many of the men kept out
of uniform for the last few weeks
because of injuries will be ready
to go for their last chance to dem-
Gnstrate their talent before first
call this fall.
* * *
THE MICHIGAN wind-up comes
a little later this year than that of
giost other major universities,
mainly because the coaching staff
has had to spend more time in the

weeding-out process than was an-
ticipated.
The highest percentage of
new-comners since 1940, coupled
with the fact that the freshman
hopefuls have stuck out the,
grind in greater numbers than
at any time since before the.
war, has made the coaching task
a lot more complicated than it
has been in some time.
Although the spring squad has-
n't had'as much individual atten-
tion this year as is possible with
smaller turnouts, Oosterbaan has
uncovered a slew of prospects, but,
he says, "most of them won't be
ready for another year." There
are, however, at least a dozen men
who, on the basis of their perfor-
mances thus far, seem likely to
see plenty of actioin right from

Tigers Claw A's, 14-8;
Yankees, Cleveland Win.

By The Associated Press
DETROIT-The Detroit Tigers,
Wvho found out Thursday that 12
runs weren't enough to beat the
,Boston Red Sox, banged over 14
yesterday as they whipped the
Philadelphia Athletics 14-8 in a
loosely played game.
Freddie Hutchinson, the loser in
4he Tigers' 13-12 setback at the
hands of Boston, turned in a fairly
impressive relief performance to-
day to get credit for his third win.
THE TIGERS just about settled
the game with a 10-run outburst in
the fifth inning. Fourteen men
xwent to bat in that spree with
eight hits, four errors, a walk, a
hit batter and a wild pitch being
chalked up.
CHICAGO - Joe DiMaggio's
third inning single accounted for
both runs to decide a pitchers'

duel between Tommy Byrne and
Young Bob Cain as the New
York Yankees defeated the Chi-
cago White Sox, 2-0, last night.
Each pitcher allowed three hits
as New York won its tenth vic-
tory in the past 12 games.
Byrne drew the second of three
walks Cain surrendered to open
the third inning. Joe Collins
doubled to right after Phil Rizzuto
fouled out, and Byrne stopped at
third. DiMaggio lined Cain's first
pitch into left field for a single,
scoring Byrne and Collins.
CLEVELAND-Pitcher Sam Zol-
dak's relief work paved the way
for Cleveland's 4-1 win over the
Boston Red Sox last night. When
Bobby Doerr's line drive bruised
Mike Garcia's right wrist in the
second inning, Zoldak took over
and allowed but one run on six
hits for the rest of the game.

the opening game against Michi-
gan State.
TIE NAMES of Bill Billings, a
new-found punter, Ted Toper, a
rugged center, Roger Zatkoff, - a
bruising defensive line-backer,
Dave Hill, one of the fastest backs
uncovered here in years, Lowell
Perry, a sure-fingered end, and
Frank Howell, a scatback top the
list of first-year men.
Line Coach Jack Blott has
had the most luck in turning up
promising material. Emil Mor-
lock, Cal Sandifer, Wayne Mel-
chiori, Don Rahrig, Bob Timm,
and Dick Strowsewski, are the
boys who have impressed the
most. Bud Reeme appears well
on the road to snagging an end
position along with Perry.
There will be a sprinkling of
lettermen in evidence at the Sta-
dium today, also. Dick McWil-
liams, Jim Scala, Less Popp, John
Hess, Bill Ohlenroth, Don Peter-
son, Jim Eldridge, Bill Putich, Oz-
zie Clark, Don Dufek, Al Jackson,
Gene Hinton, Tom Kelsey, and
Tony Momsen will lend balance
to the crew of freshmen and soph-
omores.
* * *
THE WAY THINGS will be run
this afternoon will be a far cry
from what spectators can expect
at the opener, but this scrimmage
will provide the only preview of
the 1950 edition of the Wolverines.
There will no platoon changes,
and all substitutions will be done
on pretty much an individual bas-
is.
Derby Victor
Races Today
In Preakness
BALTIMORE - (P) - Seven
three-year-old colts, including the
Bg Three from the Kentucky
Derby, are scheduled to tangle to-
day in the 74th Preakness at Pim-
lico.
Just about everybody around
these parts thinks it will be a
three-horse race among Middle-
ground, the Derby Champ, Hill
Prince and Mr. Trouble, who
chased the King Ranch flyer un-
der the wire at Louisville two
weeks ago.
A crowd of upwards of 35,000
is expected to cram into the his-
toric old hilltop course for the
mile and three-sixteenths event,
second jewel in the triple crown
of racing-the Derby, Preak-
ness, and Belmont Stakes.
Besides the Big Three, the field
lines up with Sylvester Labrot's
Arcave, Mrs. James Carson's
Kinsman, Mrs. William H. La-
brot's Balkan, and Dooly, who
goes as an entry with Mr. Trouble
for Cornelius Vanderbilt (Sonny)
Whitney.
The betting fraternity has es-
tablished Hill Prince the pre-race
favorite at odds of 8 to 5. Middle-
ground is a surprising third
choice at 3 to 1. Mr. Trouble is
listed at 2 to 1.

Wolverines
At Madison
Track Meet
By BYRLE ABBIN
Michigan's track squad will go
into the Northwestern-Wisconsin
Triangular meet today at Madison
facing almost an identical situa-
tion that it met against Illinois
and Northwestern last week.
Again, the underdog Wildcats
can make the difference between
a Wolverine win and a close sec-
ond with the few points that they
should pick up in key events. Es-
pecially harmful is their power in
the dashes and broad jump.
* * *
GOOD NEWS HAS entered the
Michigan camp with Coach Can-
ham's statement that Art Henrie
will run the 220 yard dash, along
with the 440 yard dash and a leg
of the mile relay.
Today's meet will probably
give Don McEwen his last
chance to break the varsity out-
door two mile record of 9:03.5
set by Ralph Schwarzkopf in 19-
39, as he will be running the
two mile race only.
Thus Wisconsin's Don Gerh-
mann should have his own way in
the mile and half mile runs, with
Northwestern's Dean Pieper and
Charles Whiteaker and Doug Parks
of Michigan being his main com-
petition.
THE BADGERS are heavy fav-
orites in all the dashes with Jim
Englander and LeRoy Collins lead-
ing the way. Undoubtedly a big
thorn in Michigan's victory plans
will be Jim Holland who should
place high in the dashes and is the
favorite for the broad jump, being
the Big Ten Indoor champ.
The high and low hurdles hold
much of the Wolverine's hope,
with Don Hoover a likely double
winner and Walt Atchison a sure
placer in both events.
The field events also are domi-
nated by Wolverines. Chuck Fon-
ville and Pete Dendrinos lead the
way in the shot put and dispus,
and Ed Ulvestad and Tom Emblad
heading the pole vaulting contin-
gent.

Special to The Daily
MADISON-Wisconsin's Badgers
cut Michigan's Big Ten baseball
lead to one game here yesterday,
nosing out the Wolverines, 4-3.
After Michigan had taken a 3-2
lead in the top half of the eighth
inning, Wisconsin came right back
in its half of the inning to score
two runs that gave the Badgers
their margin of victory.
DAVE SETTLE, third Wolverine
pitcher of the afternoon and vic-
tim of the Badger's eighth inning
attack, was charged with the loss,
his first in Conference play.
Thornton Kipper went the
route for the Badgers, posting
his fourth Big Ten victory to be-
come the top hurler in the Con-
ference.
The Badger righthander's 4-0
mark gives him a one game lead
over Michigan's Ed Grenkoski, who
was pulled in favor of a pinch
hitter in the seventh inning after
giving up two runs.
* * *
WITH MICHIGAN trailing 2-1
Leo Koceski singled to lead off

Settle Victim of Eighth Inning Uprising

Michigan's eighth, stole second
and was sacrificed to third.
Hal Morrill then powered a
long ball over the right field
fence for what would have been
a home run anywhere but Wis-
consin's Breese Stevens field,
where the short distance from
home plate to the wall necessi-
tates a ground rule limiting hits
over the fence to two bases.
Pete Palmer followed Morrill's
blast with a single to right field
that scored Koceski from third,
The University golf courses
will be closed to public play all
day today and until 10 a.m.
tomorrow because of the I-M
tournament.
Morrill stopping at third on a
quick fielding play by Bruce Elliott.
* * *
WOLFF DROVE Morrill home
with the lead run on a hard drive
that bounced over the fence in
center field, but was held to two
bases by the ground rule. Two
pop ups ended the frame, leaving
Wolff stranded on second.

Michigan Sailors Race
In Midwest Title Regatta

In the bottom half of the
eighth Settle was touched for
a single by Bob Shea and then
with two outs Paul Furseth col-
lected a ground rule double on a
ball that cleared the right field
wall.
Ernie Bauer then lined a triple
off Koceski's glove in deep left
field, driving in the tying and win-
ning runs for the Badgers.
* * *
WISCONSIN'S first two runs
came off Grenkoski-one in the
third and the other in the fifth.
In the third Bauer singled,
was sacrificed to second and
scored on a wild throw to third
by Morrill after Kipper's infield
out.
Bauer tallied again in the sixth
after drawing a free pass, another
sacrifice to second and coming
home on Gene Evans' double off
the right center field wall.
Michigan's other run came in
the seventh inning when Bob
Wolff doubled to left center and
came home on Linc Painter's
pinch hit single.
The two teams meet in the sec-
ond game of the series this morn-
ing at 10 o'clock. Bob Hicks will
start on the hill for Michigan
against the Badger's Ed Keating.

'M'Netmen
Face Weak
OSUSquad
By CY CARLTON
Coach Bill Murphy expects his
Michigan net squad to have an
easy time in Columbus today.
His netmen meet Ohio State in
what shapes up as a cinch win
for the Maize and Blue netmen, as
the Buckeyes are one of the weak
sisters of Western Conference ten-
nis this season-
OHIO STATE has had no suc-
cess in the conference this sea-
son although they have managed
to win some meets outside the
Big Ten, mostly from some of the
smaller college teams in the Buck-
eye state.
Recently they were downed
by Indiana in a Hoosier rout,
8-1. Thus it appears unlikely
that they have enough tennis
"savvy" to give Michigan any
trouble as ;the power packed
Wolverine aggregation should
coast to its 22nd straight dual
meet triumph.
Murphy expects to use the same
squad in Columbus that he has
used in practically all of the sea-
son's meets.
CO-CAPTAINS Don MacKay
and Al Hetzeck will be the usual
one-two punch for the Maize and
Blue as they will again play in the
number one and number two-slots.
Dick Lincoln and Steve Brom-
berg, both undefeated in dual
meets this year, will play in the
three and four positions. Len-
ny Brumm and Ross Herron
will man the five and six posi-
tions for the Wolverines.
In the doubles, it will be Het-
zeck-MacKay, Bromberg-Lincoln
and Herron-Brumm in their usual
positions.

By LARRY SPERLING
Michigan's Sailing Club will be
out to prove themselves undisput-
ed champions of the Midwest as
they take to the water in the
Midwest Dinghy Championship
Regatta at Lake Oshawnosee,
Ohio today and tomorrow.
A strong field of eight other
colleges will try to thwart the
Wolverines in their attempt to de-
fend the crown which they won at
last year's championships. Pow-
erful crews from Ohio State and
Ohio Wesleyan are given a good
chance to upset the Maize and
Blue.
* * *
ROUNDING OUT the entrees
will be crews from Northwestern,
Purdue, Notre Dame, Bowling
Green, Illinois Tech and Denison.
The races will be held in two
divisions, A and B. Michigan
will have Jim Johns skipper-

ing in the A division race with
Teena Lawrence crewing for
him, while Gene O'Connor as-
sisted by Bob' Allen will repre-
sent the Wolverines in the B
division.
Johns, ranked as one of the best
sailors in the country, will have
a personal title at stake in to-
day's races. He was the winning
skipper in last year's champion-
ship regatta.
* * *
ON HAND to substitute for the
starting crews in case of a last
minute emergency are Jim Ruken
and Jane Peterson.
The type of boat used will
be the Dyer-Dhow twelve foot
cat. In order to make sure that
minor differences in the mech-
anics of the boats does not put
any teams at a disadvantage the
crews will rotate boats for each
race.;
The entrants i this race were
picked on the basis of qualifying
rounds held in the three districts
of the Midwest Conference. The
top three teams in each of these
races were selected to represent
their district.
* * * *
THE WINNER of this regatta
will not only be established as
the Midwest Champion but will
also have the honor of sailing in
the National Sailing Champion-
ships which will be held at South-
ern California in June.
Undefeated thus far this season
the Michigan sailors, if they win
today's regatta, have a good
chance of maintaining this un-
blemished slate for the rest of the
campaign.
