McEwen Breaks Gregg Rice's Record

Associate Sports Editor
The talented right arm of Char-
lie Ortmann was the feature of
the Michigan footballers' second'
game-length scrimmage in the
Stadium Saturday afternoon.
Ortmann paced the blue-shirted
varsity to a lop-sided "victory"
over the reserves, but Coach Ben-
nie Oosterbaan was far from
pleased with the general showing
of the squad.

"THEY WERE poor on their
fundamentals," Bennie explained,
and he was referring mainly to
the rather shabby blocking and
tackling exhibited at times.
Theblonde left half from Mil-
waukee, however, was in mid-
season form as he found every
receiver with a near perfect
Sophomore End Lowell Perry
continued to look good on the
receiving end with Wingback Leo
Koceski and Ends Ozzie Clark
and Fred Picard also snagging
Charlie's heaves.
ORTMANN'S two sidekicks of.
last season, Don Dufek and Ko-
ceski, showed a lot of drive when
they lugged the ball on the run-
ning plays. In that respect it
was a repeat of their perform-
ance in Thursday afternoon's
scrimmage on Ferry Field.

> HERE'S HOW-Ted Gray, Detroit Tiger pitcher, talks over the
situation with another thrower, Michigan halfback Charles Ort-
mann. Gray, disabled for over a month, viewed a Wolverine
scrimmage recently and is shown here giving the Michigan
passer a few pointers on the throwing of curves. Ortmann isn't
planning to emulate the Bengal sidewheeler on the gridiron,
however. He'll stick strictly to the straight stuff.

NEW YORK-The Yankees did
everything but announce their
opening World Series pitcher to-
day as they battered the fifth-
place Washington, Senators twice
at the Stadium, 8-3 and 7-4, in two
typical Bomber performances.
In running their home stretch
victory streak to five, the World
Champions lengthened their lead
over the idle Detroit Tigers to
three and one-half games.
* * *
THE SO-called "magic" num-
ber was reduced to four. That is,
the Yanks with six games remain-
ing on their calendar, can clinch
the flag by winning four.
In the opener the Champs rat-
tled 15 hits all over the outfield
grass, and 14 of them were singles.
The second game, by contrast,
was over all of a sudden. Joe
DiMaggio came to bat in the
third inning with one out, the
bases loaded and the Nats lead-
ing 2-0 by virtue of Vernon's
first four-master.dThe Clipper
socked a double down the left
line to clear the decks.
Next to face lefthanded Bob
Kuzava was big Jawn Mize. The
gigantic Georgian unloaded his
24th home run of the year into
the far distant right field seats.
The Yanks made a couple more
runs after that, but they were
strictly an afterthought. The 20,-
238 chilled customers had seen
what they paid their money for
Red Sox may not win the 1950

day in September, when two of

his 18th victory of the season

BOSTON-Jim Konstanty miss-
ed fire on a record-tying 70th re-
lief job today and his Philadelphia
Phillies settled for a split with the
Boston Braves.
Pitcher Max Surkont's eighth
inning single off bespectacled Jim
in the second game ruined the
pennant-minded Phils' hopes of
a double-header sweep. The
Braves eked out a 5-3 edge in the
The split sliced the Phils' lead to

Running with the uncompro-
mising fortitude of Gil Dodds, Don
McEwen gained additional nation-
al prominence early this summer
as he hung up a meet record of
9:01.9 in capturing the two mile
title in the twenty-ninth annual
NCAA track and field champion-

As usual he ran his European

faster than the first. Pacing him-
self beautifully, McEwen followed

ters and just before the mile he

challenged after. Don finished the
first mile in 4 :32 and then poured
it on, gradually pulling away and
making it only his one man race

Charlie Ortmann will have a
field day against Michigan State
College this Saturday if the Spar-
tan showing against Oregon State
last week-end was any indication.
The Spartans beat the Beavers
by better than four touchdowns
but actually the 38-13 score is in-
dicative not of MSC strength but
Oregon weakness.
AN OVERDOSE of penalties at
Impropitious times coupled with
an acute case of fumblitis held the
score down. MSC was easily two
to three touchdowns better than
the final score revealed, but only
so because Kip Taylor's lads dis-
played clearly that the hooplas
which would have one believe that
Oregon State will cause anybody
any trouble in the Pacific Coast
circuit is nothing more than hoop-

and the pass defense when he
mentioned the weakness.
Another reason why the mon-
ey boys will spot heavily for this
week's game is the fact that
State did not have to contend
with the brand of quarterback-
ing they will run up against in
Ann Arbor.
