Michigan To Be Host to NCAA Gymnasts


Dimag in Spring Slump;
Trucks To Make Start

By The Associated Press
HOLLYWOOD, Calif.-Joe Di-
Maggio's failure to hit in his ac-
customed style is causing some
concern in the camp of the New
York Yankees.
DiMaggio has collected only two
hits, both home runs, in 18 official
times at bat in Grapefruit League
games for a weak .111 mark.
THE CLIPPER himself is not
unduly worried over the sad state
of affairs. DiMaggio jokes with his
teammates and expects to get go-
ing any time.
Actually his timing is not far
off. He is meeting the ball but
is either cutting under or top-
ping it.
Last year DiMaggio slugged at
a .403 clip during a six week per-
iod before the regular season open-
Another factor may be that Di-
'Maggio is trying too hard. Di-
Maggio wants this to be a great
year and he especially wants to
shine during the tour of his home
LAKELAND, FLA.-Pitcher Vir-
gil Trucks hopes he has the an-
sswer to the big question in the De-

is wrong with the Tigers?"
The big righthander with the
doubtful arm will make his first
pitching appearance of the spring
and his second since last May 19
when he goes against the Phila-
delphia Phillies here Sunday.
The way the defending Na-
tional League Champions react
- to his pitches may determine
how he'll go against American
League teams this year. The
Tigers have had a dismal spring
training season so far, dropping
their last five games for a 2-6

AVALON, CALIF.-The Chicago
Cubs yesterday ended their train-
ing period at Santa Catalina Is-
land. Today they will resume their

BURBANK, Calif. - The St.

home run yesterday to defeat the
Cleveland Indians for the second

Joe Lutz's four-bagger climaxed

Wildcats Tackle St. John's;
Illini Face NC State Tonight

NEW YORK - (P) - Adolph
Rupp, the drawling Kansan who
fashions basketball gargantuas at
the University of Kentucky,
brought his Wildcats to town yes-
terday and found them in a fami-
liar role-top-heavy favorites to
win the NCAA championship.
"I would be deeply embarrassed
if I ever came to New York, even
with a grade school team, and
didn't find myself favored," the
Kentucky colonel said in his mo-
lasses brogue. We're always fa-
vored, but I don't see it."

Southern Conference, in the

"We aren't as strong as when
we came here early in the winter
and beat St. John's, 43-37," the
Kentucky coach declared. "Los-

stopped this big boy, Bob Zawo-

Heyliger's 7th Year as Coach

Chalk up another successful
season for Vic Heyliger, coach of
Michigan's 4 national champion
hockey team.
When his Wolverines pushed
aside Brown University, 7-1, in
