Meets

Indiana

Today

Larsen Selected To Hurl
)pener Against Hoosiers

By BOB LANDOWNE
On the road once more, the Wol-
rine diamond squad will return
iconference play when they meet
idiana. today and tomorrow at
loomington.
The fourth place Hoosiers have
2-1 Conference record and only
st weekend split two games with
linois, twice conquerors of Michi-
In.
That Indiana-Illinois series was
.iite odd in that the Illini walked
'f with the first game by a 15-0
)unt and then dropped the second
une to the Hoosiers, 10-6, even
iough they held a 6-1 lead at
:me stage.
* * *
THE HOOSIERS obviously lack
itching strength except for one
4 romising note in that reliefer
ert Weber stopped the Illini with
aly three hits in the last five inn-
tgs.
Coach Ernie Andres is also
counting on Don Colnitis to take
ip some mound chores. Colnitis
was hurt in an automobile acei-
d ent last year after posting a
1-1 record.
Returning this year, he has al-
J 5ady beaten Wisconsin but was
]e chief victim of the Illinois
5-0 onslaught.
& * * *
MICHIGAN'S mentor, Ray Fish-
will again have Bob Larsen
tke the mound for him today in
hat will be the lefthander's third
ttempt to garner a victory in
onference play.
Larsen lost by one run to Illi-
tiois and then could not get
through the ninth inning against
Iowa, although he did not get
the loss in the 4-3 defeat.

The Wolverines' lineup will re-
main the same as Frank Howell,
top hitter against Wayne, will
patrol center field, and Bill Mogk
will continue in right, leaving the
second base duties to Gil Sabuco.

INDIANA is currently the num-
ber two team in Big Ten batting
and boasts two regulars batting
.400 and another trio topping the
.300 mark.
Charlie Platis, sophomore sec-
ond baseman, is their leading
batter at .429, while third sacker
Johnny Kyle is right behind him
with .400.
Outfielders Ray Pegran and
Harry Moore will also bring com-

mendable.389 and .333 percentages
into the batters box against Lar-
sen.
The Indianans also have a
sparkling shortstop in veteran
Gene Ring, a .333 batsman. He is
also a steady fielder, a quality that
is sorely needed on the Hoosier
squad that is presently the worst
fielding team in the Big Ten.
Indiana also finds themselves
without any catching strength this
year. However, they have another
veteran in first baseman John
Phillips.

Water Polo
Title Copped
By PhiDelis
By HOWIE SETTLER
Phi Delta Theta splashed its way
to the fraternity water polo cham-
pionship yesterday by virtue of a
1-0 win over Chi Phi.
This was the end of a perfect
season for the Phi Delts who have
been able to hold all of their op-
ponents scoreless.
DOUG LAWRENCE was the
man of the day scoring the win-
ning goal for the'Phi Delts while
his cohorts George Valassis, Pete
Dendrinos, Jack Ehlers and Tom
Kelsey held off an onrushing Chi
Phi squad.
The first period found the Phi
Delts taking the initial lead in
the first thirty seconds of play
and fighting a defensive battle
to retain it. Dave Sebald, Chi Phi
captain, carried the game to Phi
Delt goalies Dendrinos and Kel-
sey.
Dendrinos, varsity shot-putter,
and Kelsey, Wolverine gridman,
were physically well-equipped for
their positions and had little trou-
ble in defending them, although
the Chi Phis came through to hit
the towel in the closing seconds of
the period.
The smooth - working Phi Delt
machine was virtually stopped in
the second period as the hard
fighting Chi Phis vainly tried to
even things up.

VIENNA-(IP)-The six men to

Olympic Games began a week of
meetings yesterday in the Inter-
national Sector of this romantic
c ctinof Russia's application
for membership in the Olympic

mittee (IOC) started to smooth

ST. LOUIS-Led by rookie in-
fielder Gil McDougald, who pow-
ered in six of the runs on a triple
and .a base-clearing home run, the
New York Yankees tied two records
and broke a third yesterday, scor-
ing 11 times in a wild ninth inning
rally to smother the St. Louis
Browns, 17-3.
It was the fifth straight victory
for the World Champions and the
first for sore-armed Allie Reynolds,
who made his first start of the
year and limited the Browns to five
hits.
A SMALL CROWD of 1,612 saw.
the Bronx Bombers unload their
vaunted power with a 17-hit at-
tack that produced four home runs.
Young McDougald, thrown in
at second base in place of injured
Jerry Coleman, was the big noise
in the Yankee attack, hitting a
triple with two on and a homer
with three on base in the wild
final inning.
The Yanks equalled the Ameri-
can League record mark for total
bases in one inning, getting 24 on
two singles, two doubles, two triples
and three home runs. That figure
had been set by the Browns on

spark the Boston Red Sox to a 6-1
win over the Detroit Tigers.
Dropo, who hadn't played regu-
larly since the season's third game,
punched a two-run single in the
eighth after pitcher Virgil Trucks
had deliberately walked Vern Ste-
phens to load the bases.
THE LANKY first baseman, who
batted .322 as a rookie last year
and fell to .154 this season, also
socked a double in the sixth to
score two other runs.
Chuck Stobbs, six-foot-one
lefthander, shackled the Tigers
with six hits to win his third
game against no defeats.
Teddy Gray, who hurled hitless
ball until Bill Goodman singled to
start the sixth, suffered his second
loss without a win.
SENATORS 7, WHITE SOX 1
CHICAGO - The Washington
Senators swept into undisputed
possession of first place in the
American League race here when
they trounced the Chicago White
Sox, 7 to 1.
Conrado Marrero, scattering
nine hits, registered his third
straight victory. The chunky right-
hander has allowed only one run in
each of his three games.
THE SENATORS belted Billy
Pierce and Bob Mahoney for a
dozen blows in reeling off their
third straight victory of their
western trip. All- but Sam Dente
got at least one hit. Ed Yost hit
a homer, a double, and batted in
three runs.

vFL Plans No Action Against
Jumpers' Who Play In Canada

PHILADELPHIA - (F) - Com-
iissioner Bert Bell of the National
ootball League said yesterday
bsolutely no bans would be im-
osed on players who jump to the
icrative Canadian Leagues.
But the portly czar of pro foot-
all admitted that he wouldn't
aink very kindly of any "jump-
rs". who get their fill of Canada
nd decide to come back to the
''F'L.
s BELL DIDN'T say outright he
rouldn't take a boy back into the
old but he warned guardedly:
"I'm paid to protect pro foot-
ball. Anything detrimental ti
the game must be curtailed. And
I'll say this, contract breaking
is detrimental to the game."
Several club owners are reported
ven more incensed over the
xodus above the border of some
f the United States' finest grid
alent-a situation paralleling the
amous Mexican League jumping
ase in baseball.
Ray Benningsen, President of
he Chicago Cardinals, said if'
ontract-breaking contines, "We'll
' lave to make up our minds about
aking legal steps." The New York
fankees are said to be of a similar
utraged mind.
THE CARDINALS lost their
hird player to the Calgary Stam-
)eders of the Western (Canadian)
onference. He is Bill Blackburn,
enter, who joins Bob Shaw, end
and line coach, and Jim Lipinski,
ackle.
But the situation actually was
brought to a head when over-
tures were made to Bob Water-
field, star quarterback of the
Los Angeles Rams. Waterfield,
who has been made an offer by
the Montreal Alouettes, said:
"Money is money. If enough is
offered I'd be interested in the
proposition."
The Alouettes are members of
he second major football league
n Canada-the Big Four League.

ecision to give up football in 1951
nd came up with a new head
oach and a full slate of games.
Spokesmen for the college said
hey found the draft would not be

BETWEEN THEM, the two cir-
cuits have lassoed more than a
score of American players from
the NFL and the American
Leagues and are reported dicker-
ing for others. Each club is al-
lowed seven imported players.
At NFL headquarters here, Bell
said no legal action is planned at
the moment.
He said he wasn't worried about
losing the players because "There
are plenty of them around and
there always will be."
