lie (Double No-Hit) Reynolds for
12 hits in six inniigs, the Detroit
Tigers ripped the New York Yank-
ees, 10-3, yesterday to end their
three-game losing streak.
The Tigers jumped on Rey-
nolds for five runs in the first
inning, and added two more in
the second and another in the
third to take an 8-0 lead against
the part-Indian righthander.
George Kell and Ben Taylor,
with three singles apiece, led
Detroit's 16-hit assault against
Reynolds and Jim McDonald.
Virgil Trucks and Dizzy Trout
held the Yanks to seven hits. They
were aided by some fancy fielding,
by second baseman Jerry Priddy,
who turned in five sparkling de-

The Browns garnered eight hits

Red Sox blasted starting pitcher
Howard Fox for 11 hits and all

The Sox scored once each in
the second and fourth and five
big runs in the fifth, including
Ted Wililams' home run. The
Phillies' mound ace, Robin Rob-

lenced the Red Sox bats from
the six on but the damage had
been done.
The Phillies momentarily came
to life in the seventh, whacking,
Bill Wight for five runs.

PHOENIX - Davey Williams'
second home run of the game,

hasn't been particularly active for
the Cincinnati Reds this spring,
cracked a two-run homer in the
10th inning to give the Redlegs
a 5 to 3 victory over the Washing-

It - was Cincinnati's fourth

Spring Tilts ShowLoss of AL Power

With the professional baseball
exhibition circuit nicely under
way, a current popular sport is to
try to pick the World's Champion
come October.
The American League, which
has won the World Series for the
last five years, doesn't seem to
have its usual strength this year.
NEW YORK, perennially the
American League leader, is less
strong than it has been. Joe Di-
Maggio is gone, and nobody has
turned up yet to fill his shoes. The
tradition of Yankee hitting power
was broken last year, when only
one man on the team ended the
season above .300 and there isn't
much to indicate that the situa-
tion will improve.
Cleveland has a lot of guns,
but it is hard to tell yet whether
they are going to turn out to be
sixteen inchers or water pistols.
The first four Indian pitchers
are mighty good, but at least
one of them, Feller, may be get-
ting too old.
Cleveland also has three players
who did not produce as expected
last year. They are first baseman
Luke Easter and center fielder
Larry Doby, both out for most
of last season because of leg in-
juries, and veteran third baseman
Al Rosen who seems to be staging
a comeback.

IF THE RED SOX lose Williams,
there isn't enough young blood to
make the team a pennant con-
tender. Detroit, with its thin
pitching staff - Newhouser ap-
pears through and no young pitch-
er has yet shown anything worth
seeing - and miserable hitting

a short time last year. Some
weak spots, notably at third and
catcher, have been plugged this
spring. The pitching staff is at
least dependable and deep if
not brilliant.
The real power in the National
League thus far in the exhibition
season has been the New York
Giants. They've won seven
straight. Giant pitcher Sal (the
Independent I-M softball
team entries close today.
-Bob Betzig
Barber) Maglie, who had a 23-6
record last year, has pitched 19
consecutive scoreless innings.
* *
EDDIE STANKY'S spot at sec-
ond base looks to be ably filled
by 23 year-old Davey Williamson.
Williamson played 30 games last
season with . no errors, and his
batting is steadily improving.
The Philadelphia Phillies will'
be strengthened a lot when
pitcher Curt Simmons comes
back from the Army. Simmons
was one of the big reasons for
the Phils' 1950 pennant and he
wil bolster what is already a
fine pitching staff. Philadelphia
pitcher Robin Roberts blanked

the World's Champion New
York Yankees in two games this
Spring, yielding exactly two hits
in eleven innings. .
Furthermore, righthander Russ
Meyer pitched six hitless innings
against the Tigers last week. If the
Phils can start hitting they might
go places this year.

Grapefruit Circuit is the perform-
ance of the Chicago Cubs. The
Cubs are serving notice that their
lease on the league baserpent is
running out.
Chicago has a 10-6 record in
exhibition play, winning six of
those games in a row. Cleveland
was thrice the victim. In the
last game with the Indians the
Cubs, whose chief weakness is
lack of a long ball hitter, blasted
Steve Gromek for four home
runs. Hank Sauer got two and
Roy Smalley and Frank Baum-
holtz one each.
Brooklyn has been a little slow
getting started in exhibition play.
However, manager Chuck Dres-
sen has been working up his
charges about the Giants. The
Bums don't like this sort of thing
and it may set them rolling.
Their ace pitcher, Preacher Roe,
is off to a bad start. Roe had a
22-3 record last year, but gave up
11 hits in six innings in losing to
the Philadelphia A's two days ago.

field post is Harrington, Brooklyn
junior, who saw action in the
outer gardens during the 1951 sea-
son. Rounding out the lettermen
is Bill Billings, a Flint junior.
Billings was used intermittently
and displayed some fine defensive
work. Paul Fancher, a junior re-
serve letter winner, will also be
available for duty,
Don Oldham and Jack Corbett.
Oldham has shown some encour-
aging work in the batting cage to
date while Corbett, listed on the
roster as a pitcher, may see some
action also as a flychaser because
of his hitting ability.
The list of promising new-
comers continues with Pat Coo-
ney, Dan Kline, Paul Lepley and
Bob Zeff.
Coach Fisher may start Howell
and Harrington against right
handed pitching, shifting other
personnel in against port-siders.
FISHER WILL BE in a much
better position to determine who
should start in the outfield after
the Wolverines have been "road-
tested" in their southern tour.
The Michigan diamond squad
leaves Ann Arbor Thursday,
opening an eight-game schedule

Wolverines will take in University

ware, Fort Meade, Andrews Air-

Through Charter Amendment number 5, the city seeks the power to levy a tax on amusements immediately . .*. and the a-
thority to impose other types of excise taxes later on. It is aimed at movies, sports, plays, dances, musical programs and other
forms of entertainment and recreation where an admission is charged. However, the language of the amendment is so broad,
: it is impossible to determine the extent to which it could be applied. The city would also be given the power to determine the
amount of the tax; it could be 10% or 20% or 30%, or any other amount the city would see fit to impose.
Under the present accumulation of taxes, both direct and indirect, on the federal, state and local levels, the tax bite in 1951 has
risen to $530 per capita, an increase of almost 17% over the preceding year. It is important that the right of tax limitation be
preserved. Once the power to levy and collect excises is voted, the foot is in-the-door for more and newer taxes.
