BOSTON (R) - Ted Williams,
one of baseball's greatest hitters,
ended his retirement yesterday
with a phone call to the Boston
Red Sox.
"There's no use waiting any
longer, I'll be in Friday," Williams
said.
He called Gen. Mgr. Joe Cronin
from Miami, Fla., where the final
settlement of his divorce was re-
corded yesterday morning.
Waiting No Longer
"I'm not going to wait any long-
er," Ted told Cronin. "I've spent
two days with my daughter. I'd
made up my mind to play baseball
again before the settlement was
completed."
Although Williams never has ex-

plained his now discarded decision
to quit baseball, friends said his
marital difficulties were the prin-
cipal reason.
Under terms of the decision
handed down in the Miami court,
Williams must pay his divorced
wife $50,000 within two years, giv-
ing her at least $125 weekly.
. He also must pay $100 monthly
for support of their daughter, Bar-
bara, 7.
Right Moment
The arrival of the long ball hit-
ting lefthander, with 366 home
runs 'and a .348 lifetime batting
average in over 12 years of major
league play, comes at the right
moment psychologically for the
slumping Sox.

Special to The Daily
KALAMAZOO-In a battle to
determine the. top team in the
Mid-west, the Wolverine tennis
squad edged Western Michigan
here, 5-4, yesterday.
The Broncos had won eighteen
of their last nineteen matches,
and were the team to beat, a task
the Wolverines met with great
vigor, as Barry MacKay. Bob
Paley, and Pete Paulus led the way
with victorys in singles.
MacKay gave the Wolverines
the initial lead, in the number one
singles match when he downed
Ed Foster, 6-3, 6-4. MacKay played
a tremendous game, never falling
behind in either set. Even at that,
many of the games went to duece,
before he could pull them out of
the fire.
Drop Next Three
After taking the first match,
however, the Wolverines dropped
the next three, and the whole
match took a new turn. In one
of the many tough individual
matches played yesterday after-
noon, Jim Farrell upset Michi-
gan's Mark Jaffe in two straight
sets, 7-5, 6-3.
The toughest match of the aft-
ernoon found Dick Potter facing
Western's Jack Vredevelt. Almost
every game in the tight duel went
to duece, but Vredevelt handily
copped the first set, 6-4. Potter,
not to be outdone, came back in
the second set to tie up the match,
3-6, looking pretty strong. The

PETE PAULUS
.. . won easily

Bronco star, however, put on a
display of power to win the final
set, and the match, 6-2.
Number four singles contest fell
to Bronco Chuck Donnelly, when
he pushed past Michigan captain,
Bob Nederlander, in two consecu-
tive sets, but it was not all gravy
for Donnelly, as the second set
shows. After winning the first set
in a close 6-3 tilt, Nederlander put
on the pressure, and after four-
teen games, the score was tied,
7-7. It took some pretty good play-

ing for Donnelly to win the next
two games, and the match.'
At this point, the Bronco's held
a 3-1 lead over the Wolverine net-
men. Two more Western victories
in the five remaining matches
would give them the contest. It
fell to Bob Paley in the next match
to start the rally, and start it he
did !
The only obstacle in Paley's
path to victory was Denny Teld-
er, and he almost proved to be
too much. Paley finally captured
the first set on wins in the fif-
teenth and sixteenth games, 9-7.
But the second set fell to Telder,
5-7. With everything depending on
the third match, Paley really
showed his form as he won, 6-2.
Pete Paulus, playing in his us-
ual fine form, made good by
dumping Clifford Strong in the
number six singles, i6-0, 6-4.
With the doubles coming up the
Wolverines needed two wins out
of the three matches to win. Bat-
tling with Farrell and Donnelly in
the number one doubles, the Mich-
igan duo played a rather sloppy
first set, losing it, 5-7.
Catch Fire
They caught fire at this point,
and playing with purpose, liter-
ally overpowered their opponents
with serves and well placed shots,
snatching the remaining two sets,
6-2, 6-2.
Nederlander and Al Mann team-
ed up in the second doubles slot
to take on Foster and Vredevelt.
The Bronco stars, realizing they
needed wins in both the remain-
ing matches, applied the pressure
and it paid off in the first set,
6-1. The second set went the oth-
er way, however, 4-6. Western
managed to pull the last set out
of the fire, 6-3, to stay alive.
With the match going into the
third doubles, each team had four
wins, and were separated from vic-
tory only by the remaining duel.
Paley and Jaffe, the latter with
revenge in his heart, carried the
Wolverine banner, against Telder
and George Carpenter. The Mich-
igan duo went to the task, and
polished off the Broncos, 6-4, 6-3,
giving the meet to the Wolverines.
Coach Bill Murphy's squad now
have a 7-0 record, while Western
has wone nine and lost two.
