Only two Big Ten baseball
teams got through the first week-
end of league competition with-
out a loss.
Michigan and Northwestern,
second division finishers 1 a s t
spring, jumped to the top of the
WEjstern Conference heap with
three quick victories.
OHIO STATE, Illinois, Iowa and
Michigan State, all considered top
contenders for the title, could on-
ly muster one victory apiece.
The Wildcats got off to a good
start Friday by stopping Indi-
ana, 6-4, on the strength of a
five run sixth inning. Buster
Carlson, veteran pitcher, scat-
tered seven hits to get credit for
the win, although he couldn't
Saturday, Northwestern took a
twin bill from hapless Purdue, on-
ly team in the league still looking
for its first win.

MARV WISNIEWSKI'S one hit-
ter in his first Big Ten outing gave,
the Michigan fans something to'
talk about. The 17 year old first
semester freshman mixed a sizz-

as he faced 21 Ohio State batters

in seven innings to earn a 3-0 vic-

What is more important to
Michigan is the fact that Wis-
niewski's effort, together with
Jack Corbett's eight hitter in
the first game of the twin bill
and Dick Yirkoski's workman-
like 20-7 effort against Illinois
the day before, established the
Wolverine pitching corps as one
of the most effective in the lea-
In the hitting department, also,
Michigan looked solid. Fisher's
crew picked up 41 hits including a
390 foot homer by Frank Howell.
Bill Mogk and Don Eaddy led the
three game hitting attack with
seven and six safeties respectively.
ILLINOIS GOT two well-pitch-
ed games against Michigan State
Saturday, but could only win one
of them as Roger Howard twirled
a three hit 1-0 shutout against the
Illini at the expense of Clive Foll-
mer. Early in the day, Illinois had

MICHIGAN'S Bob Allen' took
individual skippers scoring honors
in A division racing, while Jim
Roberts won the B division crown.
Roberts snared 91 out of a possible
99 points in collecting his title.
Frequent calms forced the
judges to change the one mile
course on both days and caused
the cancellation of the last race
Though Purdue and Michigan
held commanding leads at the f in-
ish of the Regatta, only one and
a half points separated the third
and fifth place teams.
MICHIGAN STATE narrowly

BIG LEAGUE ROUNDUP:
Two Shutouts Break Tiger Slump
J. Paul Sheedy* Switched to Wildroot Cream-Oil
Because He Flunked The Finger-Nail Test
By ROD COOK
The Major League baseball pen-
nant race has been turning uppa
lot of surprises in this early part
of the season.
The current surprise is that the
Detroit Tigers, after losing eight
straight-five short of a record-
opening games, proceeded to shut
out the Indians, 13-0 and 1-0.
* * *
THE CLUB that couldn't hit
pounded out 23 in two games to
beat the team that was their jinx
all last,. season. Art Houtteman
pitched no hit ball for 8 2/3
innings in the first game, only to
have Indian center fielder Harry
Simpson line a single into left
If Houtteman had got Simp-
son out, he would have pitched
the first no hit game for the
Tigers since George Mullin did
it way back in 1912.
In the second game the Tigers
got 10 hits, but only one run.
Teddy Gray pitched a six hit
ANOTHER surprise in the Amer-
ican League is the Boston Red Sox.
The Red Sdx are the team which
have been favored to win the pen-
nant more times than the Yankees
have won it. This year, with Ted
Williams headed for the Army and
little but aging regulars for man-
ager Lou Boudreau to work with,
everybody has been shaking their
They are still shaking their
heads in surprise. Boston has
won nine and lost two of its
first eleven games. Boudreau has
benched the veterans and put
his youngsters on the field, and
they have been performing not-
Rooky Jim Piersall replaced vet-

and is at last reports number 5 in

ing is Sam White-all new faces.
Dom DiMaggio is batting .362 for
fourth place in the batting race,
while Stephans is breathing down

IN THE National League Brook-
lyn is on top with a 7-1 record as
it has since the start of the season
ten days or so ago.
Brooklyn has a lot of power
at the plate, definitely seems
the team to beat, provided they
don't slow up again in the mid-
dle of the summer.
Four Brooklyn sluggers are cur-
rently in the top ten in hitting
in the National League.
Jackie Robinson, brilliant Brook-
lyn second baseman, currently
leads the pack with .478, while
teammates Roy Campanella, Carl
Furillo, and Billy Cox are ham-
mering .394, .387, and .375 respec-

THE CINCINNATI REDS are
running easily in second place,
half a game behind the Dodgers.
Their big gun is Ted Kluszewski
who is booming along at a .400
clip and leads the National League
with 17 RBIs. Cincinnati is going
to greet the Giants at Crosley
Field. The Giants have yet to show
their full power and the Reds may
run into trouble. The Giants beat
them 17 of 22 last season.
