number one man, started the

DICK LINCOLN, ace sophomore,
playing in the three slot caught
the "identical score virus" and
swept aside Bob Scanlon, 6-3, 6-2.

start when Mackay double fault-

and won as they pleased.
Lincoln and Bromberg took the
measure of Scanlon and Wagoner,

Baseball Commissioner A. B.
Chandler, the former Wolverine
star was packing his bags in his
Ann Arbor home in preparation
for the trip west.
ACCORDING TO the Associ-

talked to the major leagues' prob-
lem child "like a father."
Wakefield stated after the
telephone conversation that:
"Chandler has been wonderful
to me. He has given me some
very sound advice."
Evidentally baseball's commis-
sioner convinced the former Tiger

ball left and could return to the
majors if he exhibited sufficient
effort on the Oakland squad.
