Tigers, Evers, Kell Rate
Top AL Fielding Honors

By The Associated Pres3
Detroit took top honors in the
official 1950 American League
fielding records, it was announced
last night.
Hoot Evers, lanky blond Tiger
outfielder, fielded .9970 through
139 games, surpassing the old
mark of .9968 set by Joe DiMaggio
in the same number of games in
1947. Evers, who handled 341
chances with but one error, also
had a great year at the plate with
a .323 mark.
* * *
THIRD BASE honors went to
Detroit's George Kell. Kell had
but nine bobbles on 510 chances
for a .982 mark.
Aigler States
Big Ten Views
"Under the three year rule there
has been only, one time out of
five that the Big Ten Conference'
has not sent a champion to the
Rose Bowl," stated Professor
Ralph W. Aigler of the Law
School, University Conference
Representative yesterday.
He went on: "Three times in
the last four years Michigan has
won the Big Ten Championship
outright, and once we tied with
Ohio State. If there had been no
limit, Michigan might conceiv-
ably have gone to the Rose Bowl
on four successive occasions."
Aigler explained that the rea-
son for the opposition in the Big
'Tei Conference to the r.umored'
possibility of a request by the PCC
of a compromise on the three
year rule is chiefly that they feel
that the extra length of the sea-
son and the consequent disruption
of regular activities caused by the,
Rose Bowl trip can be harmful,
not only to the players but. also
the entire school.
He continued to say that the
Conference, as a matter of fact,
is opposed to postseason bowl
games as a general rule. An ex-
ception was made in the case of
the RoseBowl, and the three year
rule was made in an attempt to
minimize the effect on any one
school of postseason games.

Among the pitchers, 28
moundsmen had perfect fielding
marks, with Dizzy Trout of De-
troit having the most chances,
58.
Detroit and Boston shared team
fielding laurels, each having a
club mark of .981. Detroit han-
dled the most chances, 6,218.
IN CONTRAST to 1949 when
younger players took over many
defensive laurels, the past year of
play saw the veterans doing a
classy bit of fielding business.
Phil Rizzuto of New York, the
league's mostvaluable player,.
duplicated his 1949 feat of pac-
ing the shortstops afield, turn-
ing in an average of .982. Riz-
zuto went 58 straight games
without an error to erase 'the
previous shortstop league mark
of 42, and handled 288 chances
without a bobble to wipe out
the old league mark of 226.
In the team department, Phila-
delphia completed the most dou-
ble plays-208, and Boston com-
mitted the -fewest errors, 111.
Leah Given
SalaryBoost
SOUTH BEND-(W)--A salary
hike for Coach Frank Leahy in
the wake of his poorest Notre
Dame football season last night
was announced in a bristling "vote
of confidence" speech by the
school's president.
Flaying rumors of grid "de-
emphasis" at Notre Dame and
striking bitingly at "the chican-
ery" of college football recruiting,
the Rev. John J. Cavanaugh de-
clared at the Irish football team's
testimonial dinner:
"For those who have any mis-
givings about Frank Leahy's sta-
tus with Notre Dame, I should like
to say this: Mr. Leahy's present
contract still has several years to
run. At the risk of embarrassing
Frank, and as an added vote of
confidence in him, I am making
the announcement for the first
time tonight that th, University
is increasing his salary."

GOING

UP SLOWLY:

Keen Selects
Mat Starters
Michigan's varsity mat masters
went through their last lusty
workout yesterday in preparation
for their opener against a power-
ful Toledo aggregation Saturday
night at Yost Field House at 7:30.
Coach Cliff Keen sent his charg-
es through a tough preliminary
practice session, before having
them pair-off to grapple under
actual meet conditions.
IN AN AFTERNOON full of sur-
prises, Joe Kosik out-pointed vet-
eran Brad Stone in the 123 pound
division, 7-4.
However, the match between
last year's varsity mainstay,
Dave Space, and spunky Joe
Scandura provided the most
thrills. Space finally squeezed
out a 5-4 decision,
Veteran Bud Holcombe and a
scrappy newcomer by the name
of Harold Holt then put on a
hotly contested exhibition, but ex-
perience paid off in the end, as
Holcombe was awarded a 10-6 de-
cision.
Following this, captain Bill
Stapp at 157 and Joe Planck at
180 pounds put on a dazzling ex-
hibition that wasn't decided until
the final moments when Planck
edged out Stapp.
He said that he would probably
go along with Joe Kosik and Lar-
ry Nelson in the 123 and - 130
pound classes, Jack Gallon at 138
and Dave Space at 147 pounds.
Also slated to start are: captain
Bill Stapp at 157, Bud Holcomb
at 167, Joe Planck at 177, and
Moose Dunn in the heavyweight
division.

Play Against Marquette
Shows 'M' CagePick-Up

Titalists Win Five of Six
Events in 35-22 Victory

By ED WHIPPLE
Strauss House of the East Quad-
rangle stands as the new Intra-
mural Residence Hall dual swim-
ming champion,
The Strauss mermen gained the
1950 title by submerging Ander-
son. 35-22, in the IM pool last
night.
WHILE WINNING every event
except one, the new titlists be-
came the first East Quad team to
win a swimming championship
since Hinsdale turned the trick in
1946.
Anderson's lone triumph in six
races was by Ken Taylor in the
25 yard Breast Stroke. Taylor's
time of 14:1 was sufficient to
beat Fred Schorken of Strauss
who finished second. Anderson
also picked up points on Roger
Hammer's third place finish.
Aside from that, it was all
Strauss. The champ's first win
came in the initial event of the

By TED PAPES
For the second straight game
Michigan's basketball team show-
ed a general improvement in play
as it captured its first decision
Monday night against Marquette.
Although the Hilltoppers can-
not be considered top bracket com-
petition they provided a graded
test for the inexperienced Wol-
verines who are ready and willing
to learn.
* * *
IT'S DIFFICULT to Oin down a,
single factor to determine the
cause of change in a team's show-
ing, but from the press box it ap-
peared that Bill Putich was the
spark plug. His spirited play car-
ried over to his teammates as they
all played alert ball.
The squad will have to do
without Putich for the next
three weeks since his services
are more urgently required in
Michigan's Rose Bowl enter-
prise.
It is a safe speculation that bar-
ring injury he will be back to play'
an important role at guard during
the Western Conference cage cam-
paign which does not begin until
January 2nd.

MEANWHILE, Coach Ernie Mc-
Coy must come up with an ade-
quate replacement to use in four
intervening contests with other
foes.
Lysle Smith or Bob Olson are
logical candidates for the posi-
tion. Smith is a good ball han-
dler but has not his his stride
from a scoring standpoint. Then
too, he is of slight build by com-
parison with opposing front line
men.
Olson has flashed occasional
signs of scoring potential but he
has always been a forward and

seems to perform better at that
spot.
/ONE OF THE TWO probably
will start alongside Captain Char-
lie Murray against Butler Satur-
day and North Carolina State the
following Monday. Both games
are away from home.
Murray returned to the line-
up against Marquette after a
brief illness but did not show
many signs of weaknessi He
played alertly and was a big
factor in Michigan's success at
retaining control of the ball.
The Wolverines de-emphasized
the fast break and concentrated
on ball-handling. Their floor
work paid off as the opposition
was held to a minimum of field
goal attempts.
The crowd was disappointing
for a Michigan sporting event.
Bad weather and the week night's
schedule may have contributed to
the fact that only about 1200 fans
were on hand.

relay to best Anderson's team of
Taylor, Dick Smith, Jack Richard-
son, and Dave Wulfsohn.
In the medley, Schmiedeke
and Hamil teamed with Scher-
ken for the Strauss triumph.
They were timed at 40:8 while
defeating the loser's trio of
Smith, Richardson and Taylor.
Between relay wins, the cham-
pion finished first in the 50 yard
free style, the 25 yard free style,
and the 25 yard back stroke.
THIRD PLACE points for these
three events also went to Strauss
tank men, and Anderson garnered
the three seconds.
Christiansen took tle 50 free
style with a time of 26:9. He
was trailed by Smith and Pal-
mer in second and third, respec-
tively.
It took Schmiedke just 13.8 sec-
onds to chalk up his back stroke
triumph. Schmiedke, Strauss, cap-
tain, finished ahead of Richardson,
who was second, and teammate
Pete Carmona.
The 25 free style went to Brent
Hamil in the time of 11:9. Ander-
son's point getter in the race was
Isaac Akita, and Al Demmler ac-
counted for the Strauss third.
