DETROIT - (Special) -- Ned
Garver's pitching wizardry sent
the St. Louis Browns off to a fly-
ing start in the American League
pennant race yesterday with a
masterful 3-0 shutout of the De-
troit Tigers before 43,112 Briggs
Stadium fans.
The Brownie star, who had a
20-12 record last season, set the
Tigers down on six hits while fan-
ning nine batters and walking
only one.
HE ALSO collectedstwo singles
off Dizzy Trout, the starting and
losing Detroit moundsman, the
second hit driving home a St.
Louis run.
Queen Juliana and Prince
Bernhard of the Netherlands
were guests of the Tiger man-
agement for two innings. They
watched as Detroit threatened
to score in the sixth, but con-
secutive singles by George Kell
and Ben Taylor were wasted as
Garver worked himself out of
danger with his strikeout ball.
Trout also turned in a good
mound performance, allowing only
five hits in his eight-inning so-
journ, but a pair of two-base hits
cost him two runs.4
* * *
BROWNIE SHORTSTOP Marty
Marion led off the fourth with a
double, went to third on Jim Ri-
vera's screaming single to left, and
scored as Tom Wright hit into a
double play.
With one down in the fifth,
Leo Thomas levelled off on Trout
for another two-bagger and
came home on Garver's slash to
right field. That gave the Browns
a 2-0 margin which was more
than adequate in view of De-
troit's helplessness at the plate.
The final St. Louis run came off

,r

The Tigers had one other up-
rising besides their sixth inning
demonstration for royalty, but
it too failed to produce a run.
After Vic Wertz had fanned to
open the bottom half of the sec-j
ond, Pat Mullin dropped a looping
fly into short center for the first
hit off Garver. Cliff Mapes fol-
lowed with a sharp single to left,
sending Mullin to third, but he
died there as Matt Matts struck
out and Jerry Priddy tapped weak-
ly to the infield.
INDIANS 3, CHISOX 2
CHICAGO-(AP)-The Cleveland
Indians and the Chicago White
Sox each made 6 hits, but the
Tribe's Early Wynn was a mite
better than Sox southpaw Billy
Pierce to score a 3 to 2 opening
day verdict before 25,037 at Com-
iskey Park yesterday.
Wynn never was in real trouble,
but got a scare from a ninth inn-
ing home run by catcher Sherman
Lollar, acquired by the Sox from
the St. Louis Browns.
Wynn, who fashioned a 20-13
record last year, did not yield a
hit until the fourth when the Sox
wasted -singles by Nellie Fox and
Minnie Minoso which were nulli-
fied by a double play.
RED SOX 3, NATS 0
WASHINGTON--(R)-A couple
of eminent lefthanders, Harry S.
Truman and Mel Parnell, got the
baseball season and the Boston
Red Sox away to a successful start
yesterda'.
Parnell pitched beautiful three-
hit ball to stop the Washington
Senators completely, 3 to 0.
* * *
THE BIG MEN in the Boston
hitting department:
Walt Dropo, big Red Sox first
baseman, whose double to the
left field fence drove in two runs
in the sixth inning.
Ted Williams, Boston's fine
outfielder who will go into the
Marines May 2. His tremendous
triple to centerfield in the eighth
led t% the third Red Sox run

YANKS, A's - RAIN
PHILADELPHIA - (P) - Shibe
Park records which date back to
1925 fail to show an opening day
cancellation for the Philadelphia
Athletics, but 89-year-old Connie
Mack says there was one. Mack
couldn't remember the date, but
he was sure yesterday's Athletics-
New York Yankees opening day
rainout wasn't the first here.

SPRING IN i5lXIE:
Wolverine Trackmen Shine,
Then Fade in Southern Trip

By The Associated Press
BOSTON-Timely hitting by
catcher Roy Campanella and Billy
Cox enabled southpaw Preacher
Roe to pitch the Brooklyn Dodg-
ers to a 3-2 opening game victory
over the Boston Braves yesterday
under adverse weather conditions.
Campanella, who clouted three
of the 11 Dodger hits against left-
hander Warren Spahn, delivered a
bases-loaded single while the
Dodgers were doing all of their
scoring in the fifth inning.

By JOHN JENKS
Michigan's track team was
spring itself during its tour of
Dixie last week-it went in like
a lion and came out like a lamb.
The thinclads swept through
their first engagement, the South-
ern Relays, like Sherman swept
through Georgia, but their per-
formance in the Arkansas Relays
a week later gave the impression
that the South will rise again.
THOUGH NO TEAM title is
awarded in the Birmingham, Ala-
bama meet, Michigan's five firsts
and a second there put them well
out in front with 28 points, eight
better than runner-up LSU.
Towering Milt Mead soared
6 feet 6114 inches to cop high
jump laurels, edging' NCAA
champ J. Lewis Hall by an inch.
Big Fritz Nilsson contributed a
first and a second to the good
cause, but the Svanno Sweetie
had trouble with Auburn's Jim
Dillon, NCAA discus champ,
NILSSON TOSSED the shot
53 feet 10 inches to best Dillon
by three feet in the event, but in
the discus Dillon set a new Relays
record with a 171 feet 4% inch
effort. Nilsson's mark of 164 feet
3%V inches was good enough for
second.
The Wolverines' mile relay
team of Dan Hickman, Bill Kon-
rad, Jack Carroll and Al Ran-
kin turned in a 3:21 time while
taking the event.

Carroll, Hickman, John Ross
and Don McEwen combined their
talents to win the distance medley
relay, navigating the muddy,
wind-swept track in 10:17.7. The
other Maize and Blue first came
from Bill Hickman in the two
mile run. His time: 9:49.3.
* ..
ENCOURAGED BY their first
appearance outdoors, the thinclads
headed for the home of Ozark Ike
to begin a week's practice under
the sun in preparation for the
Arkansas Relays.
But typical Ann Arbor weath-
er put a damper on their spirits.
It rained all but one day of the
six they were in Fayetteville,
and the track, though usually
superb, was extremely loggy at
meet time.
Ard so were the Wolverines.
Only Van Bruner turned in a
really impressive performance.
Bruner sailed over the 120 yard
high hurdles in 14.5 seconds to
easily capture first.
* * *
TEAMMATE Wally Atchison
followed Bruner across the pay
dirt line. Although Nilsson won
both the shot and discus events,
his efforts were very average for
him, but still good enough to set
meet records in both events.'
His best shot toss was a 50 feet
10 5/8 inches mark, while his final
result in the discus was 153 feet
8 3/4 inches.

sult of Sam Jethroe's home run in
the third inning.
Spahn had given up only three
hits before Gil Hodges opened
the fifth by drilling a single to
left field. Carl Furillo followed
with a hard smash that second
baseman Billy Reed did well to
knock down.
Thereupon Spahn got Roe on a
third strike foul bunt and Pee Wee
Reese lined out to right. Cox then
scored Hodges with a single to
left. Spahn loaded the bases by
walking Jackie Robinson to set
the stage for Campanella's game-
winning single to right field. It
was hit so sharply that Cox and
Furillo merely had to romp across
the plate.
* * *
THE BRAVES registered their
second counter in the bottom of
the fifth when, with two out, Earl
Torgeson lashed a two-bagger into
right field and Sid Gordon fol-
lowed with a single in the same
general direction.
Roe had little trouble with the
Tribesmen from then on. He set
down the last 13 rival batters to
face him.
CUBS 6, REDS 5
CINCINNATI -- The Chicago
Cubs blew a five-run lead yes-
terday, then had to go into the
10th inning before Gene Herman-
ski's pinch hit single gave them
a 6-5 victory over the Cincinnati
Reds in the National League open-
er.
A crowd of 28,517, wrapped in
blankets and overcoats and with
sporadic bonfires burning in the
bleachers temporary seats, saw
the Reds drop the initial game of
the season for the third straight
year.
** *
THE BRUINS built their fat
lead on home runs off Herman
Wehmeier, the home town boy
who said before the game he had
lived for this day since he was a
child.
Ransom Jackson got a homer in
the second, and Hank Sauer-
former Red player-blasted one
over the center field wall with the
bases loaded in the third.
After that the Cubs were help-
less before succeeding pitchers
Harry Perkowski and Frank Hil-
ler, until the tenth.

Special To The Daily
KDETROIT -- The Detroit Red
Wings became the only team in
National Hockey League history
to win the Stanley Cup without
losing a playoff game by trounc-
ing the Montreal Canadiens, 3-0,
in Olympia last night.
The whitewash was the fourth
- all at Olympia -in the eight
game series for goalie Terry Saw-
chuk, who now joins Ranger Dave
Kerr and Toronto's Frank Mc-
Cool as possessors of the most
shutouts in a Cup series. Saw-
chuk turned aside 33 Montreall
blasts.
SHARING honors in the finale
with Sawchuk was Metro Prystai.
Marvelous Metro tallied twice,
once in the first and again in the
third period. He also assisted Glen
Skov's second stanza marker.
Prystai beat Montreal's Butch
Bouchard to the puck at center
and soloed the rest of the way
in on Gerry McNeil to score De-
troit's third goal while Montreal
was concentrating on beating
Sawchuk.
The 14,545 partisan fans showed
their appreciation by showering
the ice with everything from

TERRY SAWCHUK
S.. fourth Cup shutout
* * *
cheers to u dead octopus as the
Red Wings staged a dramatic
third-period battle to save Saw-
chuk's shutout. The youthful De-
troit goalie three times saw his
masterpiece almost whiz away on
tries by Maurice Richard, Dickie

Moore, and Bud MacPherson in
the final 20 minutes.
WITH RICHARD sitting out the
final ten seconds of a penalty,
Prystai made the Red Wing power
play click at 6:50 of the initial
stanza for the first goal of the
game. Prystai converted a perfect
set up by Alex Del Vecchio from
behind the cage.
Some great net minding by
Montreal's Gerry McNeil kept
the score from mounting. He
stopped 16 shots to nine for Saw-
chuk, who twice robbed a seeth-
ing Moore with diving saves.
The second stanza saw each
goalie make seven stops. Richard
had only to hoist the rubber over
the fallen Sawchuk to tie the score
midway through the period, but
The Rocket fired over the cage.
Then with 20 seconds left in the
period Glen Skov batted in Prys-
tai's rebound to make it 2-0, De-
troit, and set the stage for the
Wings' dramatic kitty - bar - the -
door effort to preserve the shut-
out.

took over for the Tigers in the

trouble with a leadoff single to
right.
Gordon Goldsberry dropped a
bunt in front of the plate and
Stuart charged the ball, wheeled
around and fired it past first base
down the right field foul line for
the game's only error.

The Michigan tennis team's
spring swing South produced
nothing more significant than six
pairs of muddy shoes and a split
of two dual meets.
"No surprises, pleasant or other
wise," Coach Bill Murphy reported
yesterday as he watched his net-
ters in a wind-whipped workout
on the Ferry Field courts for the
first time this year. The Wolver-
ines were sporting footwear still
stained with red clay from prac-
tice courts in Georgia.

Steve Bromberg, Gene Barrack,
and Jack Smart, the Murphymen
in Florida trounced Florida State,
7-2, in a series of extra-long
matches, and absorbed a 9-0 set-
back from a Rollins College team
that boasts several Mexican Davis
Cup stars.
For the two meets Murphy
played Mike Schwartz, Bob Cur-
han, Al Mann, Jay Webb, Jim
Stevens, and Jim Holtz in
singles berths one through six,
respectively, but yesterday the
Wolverine mentor indicated
most positions are still unset-
tiled.

WE ASKED GRADUATES TEN YEARS OUT OF COLLEGE:
WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE
ON A CAREER WITH GENERAL ELECTRIC?

W ..

4444WKK

This advertisement was written by G-E employees who
graduated ten years ago--long enough to have gained
perspective, but not too long to have forgotten the de-
tails of their coming with the Company. These graduates
were sent a questionnaire and were requested to return
it unsigned. Their answers, listed below in order of
mentions, give an informative appraisal of G.E. as a
place to work and as a source of career opportunities.

I

1. G-E TRAINING PROGRAMS
Sample quotes: "I knew that G.'. offered the best train-
ing courses." "Liked the idea of rotating assignments and
courses." "Wanted to take advantage of the training
courses." "G.E. had a training plan which would let me
choose a job after reasonable time for investigating jobs
available in the Company." "I felt that Test (Test Engi-
neering Program) would make the easiest transition from
school to work." "I felt that I would get the best kind
of electrical engineering training if I went with G.E."
"The Test course appealed to me because of its combina-
tion of continued technical instruction plus practical ex
perience on the test floor."
2. VARIETY OF OPPORTUNITIES
"Why does a youngster run away with a circus?"
"Believed it was a good chance to find the field I liked
best as I wasn't quite sure what type of work I wanted
to get into." "G.E. goes out of its way to find the corner
you are happiest in and best suited for." "The varied
opportunities of work let you change jobs without leaving
the company." "Only company which offered a job
where an engineer could be in on design, sales and appli-

cation-i.e., 'application engineering.' " "Promise of
varied experience made it unnecessary to decide on a
particular specialty until I had more opportunity to look
the field over."
3. GENERAL ELECTRIC'S REPUTATION
"G.E. 's prestige and reputation appealed to me."
"G.. was more favorably disposed to the coming war
effort and was doing work directly contributory." "High
caliber persons with whom to work." "Reputation for
technical excellence." "G.E.'s reputation as a good em-
ployer." "Because with the name of G.E. went a sense
of security." "I felt that G.E. was the leader in the
elctrical field and I wanted to take part."
4. CONSIDERATE TREATMENT
"The only offer I received was from General Electric
-other companies interviewed would not consider me
because of my reserve officer status." "Among the corn-
panics offering jobs to college graduates in 1941, G.E.
seemed to take more of a personal interest in its new
men." "The G-E representatives made me feel they
were interested in me."

Ushered into a new world,
I had a bustling, brawling, bruising youth.
I was a potential giant awakening in a world of giants.
People were hurt when I first stirred in life;
Then I grew and learned;
Then I matured and knew that
Though I work with water and metal and chemicals and fire,
I am more than these things.
I am the people's work!
I am the people's dream!
Iam the people!
With maturity, I have grown, too, in social responsibility,
To the people,
To AmericaI
And even to those beyond our shores.
My efforts are not in selfish interest;
Rather, all my brain and brawn strives for the good of the many.
Iam the American way!
Now, I have sworn that these things shall be:
I shall deliver ever-better products to those who use my fruits!
I shall offer equal opportunity to those who work at my side
Whatever their race!
Whatever their creed!
Whatever their colort
Whatever their national origint
I shall forever do my part to keep America great!
And why?
Because only in this way can I remain a healthy force in our free world.
For when I am healthy, America prospers
And tyrants tremble before my might.
