im TE SPOT
By BILL CONNOLLY
Daily Sports Editor
THERE'S A racing-form type of publication, issued quarterly from
somewhere in sunny California, which hasn't as yet come to the
attention of the Kefauver Committee.
Entitled "TRACK AND FIELD NEWS," this publication lists
the rating, on the basis of comparative times, of all the men com-
peting anywhere in the world in organized track meets. It came
to our attention last year when this sheet-considered the most
accurate and reliable source of recording track performances-
had an American collegiate runner listed ahead of Michigan's
miraculous Don McEwen in the two-mile.
What was even more significant was the fact that McEwen-at
that time only' a sophomore-and his rivals were of equal scholastic
standing and leading the entire field of collegiate runners in their
first season as varsity trackmen.
* * *
THE MAN who last year at this time was reputed to be a better two-
miler than McEwen is Southern Cal's Jim Newcomb, ex-National.
Junior Champ in both the mile and two-mile. These two men will
meet for the second time of their collegiate careers this week when
the Wolverines-along with the Fighting Illini-fly out to the Coast
to take on the Trojans in a three-team meet.
The two sophomore stars had their initial encounter in the
NCAA championships last year. We don't know if McEwen had been
reading the aforementioned dope sheet, but at any rate, he was ready
for.Newcomb, and all other competition when that meet-the season's
finale-arrived
He had been pressing closer and closer to a 9-flat two-mile all
year, running 9:02 to set a new Michigan varsity record in a triangu-
lar meet with Northwestern and Wisconsin during the regular meet
with Northwestern and Wisconsin during the regular season. .
In the NCAA, he ran 17 of the best collegiate runners in the
country into the dust and beat second-place Newcomb by 100
yards, setting a new national record in the process.
He ran the first mile in 4:32 and finished with a slightly faster
4:29,9 second mile for a top exhibition of the traditional European
style of distance running. His 9:01.9 time shaved seven-tenths of a
second off the mark set in 1939 by the great Gregg Rice.
** * *
McEWEN remains undefeated in two-mile college races and may be
called on to run both the mile and his specialty this weekend.
The meet promises to be a close one, and Coach Don Canham reports
that if "Newcomb doubles, so will McEwen."
Cal's Coach, Jess Hill, hasn't decided if Newcomb will run both
races this week or not, since the Trojan star has been held back by
illness this season. A double-duty assignment would seriously handi-
cap both runners, and probably prevent McEwen from shading the
coveted nine-minute mark.
"I wouldn't be surprised if he did break nine minutes, though,"
says Canham. "Nothing he does surprises me anymore!"
Michigan's senior track coach doubtlessly had in mind McEwen's
indoor performances of this year. It reads like this:
After setting a new world's indoor record for a dirt track in
Yost Field house, McEwen raced 25 laps on a board at Montreal
later this season to set a new Canadian indoor record. ie ran
9:04.6 here on the dirt, and 9:08,7 on the hardwood irl Montreal
What he will do amid the atmosphere of a California rooting sec-
tion remains to be seen . . . but if the blue skies I saw last January
out in sunny Cal are any indication of other atmospheric conditions
to be expected, a nine-minute two-mile effort would appear to be with-
in close reach of the best distance runner in Michigan history.

Indians Stop
Detroit, 4-2,

Tigers Get Four Hits;
Ilegan Cleveland Star
NEW YORK-(/P)-Steady Ed-
die Lopat, pitching no-hit ball for
613 innings, set down the red-
faced Red Sox with two singles
yesterday in New York's second
straight victory, 6-1, over Boston.
The chunky left hander kept
the assemblage of 15,415 gnawing
its finger nails in hopes of a no-
hitter until the seventh. Then he
brought them out of their seats
with a two-run homer in the
eighth.
WHILE THE Red Sox sailed
feeble grounders or lifted tower-
ing fly balls, the Yanks ripped in-
to Harry Taylor for four runs in
the fifth. That was it.
Ted Williams, twice struck out
by Lopat's "nothing" stuff, ru-
ined his no-hit bid with a line
single to center after one was
out in the seventh. A walk to
Vern Stephens and Bobby
Doerr's line single to left, the
only other hit, provided Bos-
ton's lone run.
Taylor, the Sox's $75,000 buy
from Brooklyn's St. Paul farm,
scooted through four scoreless in-'
nings. Four singles, an error, an
intentional walk and a fly ball
ruined him in the fifth.
DETROIT=-(P)-The Cleveland
Indian's battery of pitcher Early
Wynn and Catcher Jim Hegan
was too much for the Detroit Tig-
ers yesterday.>
Wynn led the Indians to a 422
win, their second straight in the
youthful American League season,
by limiting the Tigers to four hits.?
Hegan smashed a home run and
three singles to drive in two runs
in the 10-inning battle before 5,-
161 fans.
FOR SIX INNINGS Dizzy Trout,r
35-year-old Detroit righthander,
handcuffed Cleveland. But with
Detroit leading 2-0 in the seventh,
Hegan singled home Bob Kennedy
to break the spell.
Hegan's homer into the upper7
left field stands in the ninth sent
the game into extra innings. In;
the tenth, Ray Boone singled
home Larry Doby from second
with the winning run. Kennedy1
then scored on an error for the
game's final run.
Hal White relieved Trout, the
losing pitcher, in the tenth in-
ning.

the 1951 season proved disastrous
yesterday as the Brooklyn Dodg-

lies, 4-3.

BOSTON- ' --Sam Jethroe's
home run over the left field wall
with two on and one out in the,
ninth inning broke a 5-all tie and'
gave the Boston Braves an 8-5
victory over the New York Giants
before a slim gathering of 2,784

The Giants entered the ninth I

score two runs on two walks,

Rookie righthander Jim Wilson,
who won 24 games for Seattle in
the Pacific Coast League last
year, finally put out the fire, but
not before he had walked Monte

Noted Senator
To Speak Here
This Weekend
Students and Ann Arbor resi-
dents will have the opportunity
to meet and speak with one of
the top Congressional leaders this
weekend. The Hon. Billboard D.
Rawkins, senior Senator from the
state of Missitucky, will arrive in
Ann Arbor today for a three-day
visit.
The Senator is scheduled to
arrive at Willow Run Airport this
afternoon aboard the Presidential
airplane, the "Sacred Pig." The
local Democratic machine has
promised a huge welcome for him
at this time, and a gigantic ban-
quet in the Union cafeteria will
follow that evening.
Senator Rawkins will make his
first Ann Arbor public appear-
ance at 6:15 p.m. this evening,
when he will speak in Yost Field-
house. His topic for discussion
will be "Can We Prevent Misce-
genation Among Tobacco Leaves?"
a subject on which the Senator
has done a tremendous amount of
research. At present, Sen. Raw-
kins is serving as Chairman of
the Senate Committee on the
Welfare of Tobacco Leaves, a
very important post.
The Senator will also appea' on
the stage of the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre in conjunction with the
Student Players presentation of

THE SAILING CLUB owns the
half-dozen boats which they use
in their home regattas and all
qualified members have a chance
to compete for the opportunity of
representing the Wolverines in the
various regional and invitational
regattas coming up this spring.
Since February the club ha
been holding shore school in
eager anticipation of some sat-
isfactory spring weather which
can be utilized for the all-im-
portant practice which is essen-
tial to successful manipulation
of the boats.
In any sailing competition the
boats used are the same in type
and in weight so that it is the
skill of the crew that produces the

directions.
TIE WINDWARD LEG has the
boat heading into the wind while
the "dead run" finds the wind
coming from behind.
On the third leg the wind hits

lem foi' the crew to handle.

with Notre Dame is as follows:
