Wings Take
Second Cup
Reise Big Man
I Detroit Attack
MONTREAL - (') - The Mon-
treal Canadiens fell apart in the
third period before a balanced
Detroit Red Wing onslaught as
the champion Wings downed the
Flying Frenchmen 4-1 in the For-
um here last night.
Detroit's triumph evened the
semi-final best-of-seven Stanley
Cup series 2-2, before the teams
entrained for Detroit and the
fifth game Thursday.
* * *
THE RED WINGS scored quick-
ly twice in the first and third
periods while Montreal goalie
Gerry McNeil momentarily lost
the magic touch he wielded so
effectively in the first three play-
off tilts.
Les Canadiens' lone marker
came at 14:28 of the second
stanza when veteran center El-
mer Lach deflected a long shiot
off the stick of Doug Harvey
past Terry Sawchuck.
Gaye Stewart was serving a
penalty for Detroit at the time.
Reliable Leo Reise was the big
man in the Red Shirt attack, bag-
ging a goal and two'assists to run
his play-off scoring total to five
points, tops for all competition.
REISE SCORED at 8:40 of
period one and assisted Metro
Prystai a minute and a half la-
ter, putting Detroit ahead to stay.
The champions then played
defensive hockey until Lach's
goal fired up the Canadiens for
a dangerou* third period attack.
Sawchuck in the Detroit nets
had his worst moments weather-
ing a penalty to Pavelich early in
the third frame as Rocket Richard
and Butch Bouchard put on the
After a slashing penalty to Ber-
nie Goeffrion the Montrealers lost
their zip, and Doc Couture and
Sid Abel added the clinchers with-
in three minutes of each other.
Couture, incidentally, was slat-
ed to ride the bench for poor play,
but Manager Jack Adams relented
at the last hour.
The black haired right wing re-
sponded with a goal and an assist.

Phi Gains Capture I-M Track Crown

A couple of varsity basketball
players donned track shoes last
night and led Phi Gamma Delta
to their second consecutive frater-
nity indoor track championship.
The Phi Gams were first with a
total of 211/3 points. They were
folowed by Sigma Phi Epsilon with
171 points while Alpha Tau Ome-
ga and Kappa Sigma tied for third
place with 121/3 counters apiece.
Phi Delta, Theta rounded out the
top five.

These were the Phi Gams' only

broke the old fraternity mark in
the event of 41 feet 61/2 inches.

Mu was only a tenth of a second
off the old 60-yard dash record, as
he outraced Gerry Dennis of Kap-
pa Sigma in the good time of :6.7.
The pole vault nearly pro-
duced another record, as diminu-
tive Doug Lawrence tried three
times unsuccessfully to pass the

11' 6" mark. Lawrence did suc-
ceed in giving Phi Delta Theta
five valuable first place points.
A closecontest in the quarter-
mile, decided in the last 20 yards,
was won by Ross Pfalzgraff of Sig-

The Sig Eps took another first
in the half-mile, as Bob Cutting
won handily in the good time of
2:09.9. Cutting was second at the
quarter mark, and appeared to
have a lot left as he finished ten
yards ahead of Kappa Sig Ben

"Boston and New York again
look like the teams to beat in 1951
with Cleveland as a possible dark
horse," said Red Rolfe, manager of
the Detroit Tigers, in a recent in-
The Bengal skipper,'whose team
has fared rather poorly in spring
training games, related that the
loss of Art Houtteman has greatly
hurt the club's chances. Last sea-
son Detroit finished second behind
the New York Yankees after lead-
ing the American League for most
of the race.
ROLFE STATED that if Joe
Ginsberg should come through to
bolster the catching department,
and Virgil Trucks and Saul Rogo-
vin recover from the arm troubles
that bothered thm last season,
"We might cause the leaders a
lot of trouble."
Trucks pitched for the first
time last Sunday against the
Phillies in an exhibition game
at Lakeland. Although he gave
up three runs including a homer
in the three innings he hurled,
Rolfe was pleased.
He stated: "We will have to see
more before it will be determined
whether Trucks will regain the
form that made him a 19-game
winner two years ago. I think his
arm will get stronger."'
The Tigers broke camp at Lake-
land Friday and started their trek

So far in spring training the
Detroit club has been singularly
lacklustre. The hitting power of
the Bengal outfield, a big factor
in last season's showing, has been
almost nonexistent, and the pitch-
ing has not been up to expecta-
This is Rolfe's second year as
pilot of the Tigers. He first gained

the thirties.

ichigan Tennis Success May
Hinge on Pair of Newcomers

Two men who have yet to play
varsity tennis for Michigan may
hold the key to Wolverine racquet
hopes, as the netmen prepare to
leave for their annual Southern
junket tomorrow.
Jack Smart and Mike Schwartz
are the two men, both juniors, who
are counted on by Coach Bill
Murphy to fill the gaps left In
the squad by graduation last June.

Schwarz, from Mount Clemens,
Michigan, seem a inch to make
the varsity six, although their
planes can be any where from
numbers three to six.
Playing his High School ten-
nis at Lake Forest Academy,
near Chicago, Smart starred for
a team which won the Mid-
western Prep School title and
enjoyed an enviable dual meet

provement during the last year
and looks to be a stalwart new-
comer to the ranks of the Murphy-

net game was perfected at his local
High School which annually plays
the class of prep-school tennis.
Schwartz, who missed last season
because of eligibility troubles is
almost a certainty for a starting
berth this season.
Together these two athletes form
a strong singles pair to bulwark
veterans Steve Bromberg and
Captain Al Hetzeck and Sopho-
more Gene Barreck as mainsprings
of a hopeful Maize and Blue net
sextet which looks forward to ex-
tending its dual meet winning
streak which stands at 25 and
grabbing a good share of confer-
ence laurels at Evanston come the
end of May.

Leafs Score
3-1 Victory
Over B ruins
BOSTON - (P) - With Turk
Broda, the aged but reliable goal-
tender for the Toronto Maple
Leafs back in the nets, Boston's
Bruins went down to defeat, 3-1,
in the third semi-final game of
the Stanley Cup Playoffs here last
Al Rollins, the Vezina Trophy
winner along with Broda, was
knocked out of the series in the
first game, which the Bruins won.
* * *
BUT THAT didn't spell finis
for the pressure-cool Maple Leafs.
The husky Broda and the Leaf
defense limited the Boston team
to one goal, and put Toronto ahead
in the series, 2-1.
The victory puts the Toronto
team back in contention for the
coveted Stanley Cup. If they
can win three out of the remain-
ing five games, including a re-
play of Saturday's 1-1 tie, they'll
meet the winner of the lon-
treal-Detrot set in the title
The Bruins were playing with-
out the valuable services of Milt
Schmidt, Doug Fisher and Johnny
Pearson, all of whom were injured
in the first three contests.
The Boston club hung up its
victory in Toronto, where the
Leafs are usually poison. But on
home ice they were a hapless
crew, and Toronto had no trouble
after a close first period.
The game was played before a
near-sellout crowd of 13,154 at
the Boston Garaeni.
The teams move back to Toron-
to on Saturday night forthe
fourth contest of the series, with
the Leafs heavily favored to vir-
tually cinch theysemi-finaltplay-

Sprint Medley
Mark Broken
By Freshmen
A freshman quartet unofficially
shattered the American sprint
medley relay record in Yost Field-
house yesterday.
The foursome-440 man Jack
Carroll, Dave Hessler and Bud
Bristow running the 220, and half-
miler John Ross-ran the distance
in 3:30.2, one-tenth of a second
better than the indoor mark set
by Ohio State in the Michigan
State Relays this year.
Carrol's quarter-mile time was
around 50 flat, while Hessler and
Bristow covered their furlongs in
approximately 23 seconds each.
Half-miler Ross posted the re-
markable time of 1:53.7 for his
anchor leg, best ever recorded in
the Fieldhouse.
The 3:30.2 clocking easily broke
the present freshman record of
3:36.3, and also topped the varsity
mark by three seconds.
Ohio State's American record-
holders were anchored by the ace
distanceman, Len Truex, and con-
sisted of a seasoned quartet.
