against Sen. Joseph McCarthy (R

Associate Sports Editor
Major League baseball, as sure a harbinger of spring as young
love, makes -its appearance today with all sixteen teams seeing action.
And once again, the dreaded duo from New York-the Yankees
from the Bronx and the Dodgers from Brooklyn-are in the favored
roles for the pennant chases that get under way this afternoon.'

'County Drops
In .Polio Tests
Dr. Thomas Francis, Jr., chair-
man of the department of epi-
demiology, School of Public
Health, said yesterday that to his
knowledge no other arca in the
country had cancelled participat-
ing in the new polio vaccine tests
besides from Washtenaw County.
Washtenaw Country dropped out
of taking part in the Salk polio
vaccine tests scheduled on a na-
tion-wide basis for this month

of a news release issued by the
