Barker, Michigan Swimmer,
Makes All-American Team

University Free-Style Star
Won National Collegiate
50-Yard Race Last Year
Charley Barker, the durable Michi-
gan free-styler swimmer with the
most powerful leg kick in American
swimming, was named to the 1940
All-America team yesterday.
Barker was the only Wolverine to
gain a place on the squad. Selections,
however, were based on perform-
ances of the 1939 season, the year
the junior engineer won the National
Collegiate 50-yard free-style cham-
pionship and tied for the 100-yard
The Michigan star lost both of his
collegiate titles in the 1940 season,
one of them to Gus Sharemet, his
sophomore teammate. However, his
steady brilliance played a signifi-
cant part in the success of the Mich-
igan squad, which last year won the
Big Ten, National Collegiate and Na-
tional AAU team championships, an
unprecedented feat in all the annals
of the sport.
In the Big Ten meet Barker won
the fifty yard title, and was second
to Sharemet in the century. In the
collegiate battle, he was third in the
fifty, and was ,the victim of an un-
fortunate qualifying system in the
100-yard race as he won his heat in
53 seconds flat, just one tenth of a
second slower than the time he
turned in while tying for the cham-
pionship in 1939, and later found
himself not even in the final.
And Barker's greatest roles were
the brilliant legs he turned in as a
member of Michigan's unbeaten 400-
yard free-style relay team. It was
this relay quartet that churned to
triumphs in the Big Ten, Collegiate,
and AAU meets, contributing what
amounted to the margin of triumph
in each of the latter. Barker's bril-

Tigers Take Two As Indians
Triumph; Dodgers, Reds Win

sBy A .P.Wau stein
Those amazing Dodgers are at it
again . . . yesterday they ran their
present string of victories to seven
and they're still going strong . . .
big factors in their recent success is
the surprisingly good pitching of Tot
Presnell and Vito Tamulis, their sec-
ond string flingers, and the spirited
hitting and fielding of their 'key-
stone combine-rookie Peewee Reese
at short and sophomore Pete Coscar-
art at second.
Orchids from this department go
to big Louis Newsom who pitched
three-hit ball yesterday to win his
12th of the year . . . it wouldn't
surprise us at all to see Bo-Bo come
through with more wins than any
other major league hurler this sea-
son . . . his big competitors for the
honor, Bucky Walters and Bob Fell-
er, have not been pitching as con-
sistent good ball thus far as Tiger ace.
Our hats are also off to Charley
Barker, the latest Wolverine to make
the All-American swim team . . .
Charley did a good job in 1939 and
we expected him to come through
. . . we also expect Gus Shatemet
to be on the honor squad next year
Gus is now in the 100-yard free
style race at the AAU and is fav-
ored to win.
Big surprise this year to us, next
to the slump the Yankees took, is
the poor hitting Arnovich and Good-
man have been doing . . . in 1939
they hit .324 and .323 respectively
and at present they're only batting
.210 and .230 . . . their past record
will keep them in the major leagues
for at least another season but this
would be a pretty good time for them
to sit down and realize that an out-
fielder who can't hit is useless to his
team-and not very well paid.

(By The Associated Press)
Two slim percentage points separ-
ated the Detroit Tigers from the
Cleveland Indians, American League
leaders, tonight as a result of a
double-barreled triumph by the Ben-
gals over the St. Louis Browns to-
The Brownies, "Giant Killers" so
far this season to the Boston Red
Sox, Indians and New York Yankees,
fell 11 to 2 before Louis (Buck)
Newsom's flinging in the opener, and
2 to 0 in the nightcap, when they
allowed the Tigers to score two un-
earned runs and present Johnny
Gorsica with victory. Detroit had
beaten St. Louis nine times in 11
Indians-White Sox
Held hitless for four frames by
be-spectacled Bill Dietrich, the Cleve-
land Indians drove him from the
mound in the fifth with a six-run
attack today and coasted to a 7 to 3
victory over the White Sox.
Mel Harder limited the Sox to six
hits in eight innings but gave up four
straight in the ninth and was suc-
ceeded by Johnny Allen.
Tot Pressnel stretched the amaz-
ing Brooklyn Dodgers' winning streak
to seven games today with a superb
three-hit performance that tamed
the Boston Bees, 2-0, and extended
the Bostonians' string of scoreless
innings to 20. The losers had been
previously shut out in the last 11
innings of yesterday's 20-inning mar-
athon which the Dodgers won 6-2.
Pressnell gained his decision over
Dick Errickson in a torrid pitching
battle. Errickson didn't allow a run
until the eighth when the Brooks
scored both their tallies.

Stan Hack's sixth inning double
robbed Paul Derringer of a no-hit
game today as Cincinnati's big right-
hander pitched a one-hit, 4 to 0 vic-
tory over the Chicago Cubs before
Hack also drew a walk in the
fourth inning, being the only Cub to
reach first base against the superb
control and curve ball pitching of the
Redland Ace. It was Derringer's
10th victory as against seven de-
feats and his second one-hitter of
the season.
The New York Giants clipped six
games off the pace today by bowing
to the bottom place Philadelphia
Phillies 8-2. Walter Kirby Higbe,
Phillies' righthander, was too much
for the Giants, limiting them to six
hits. His victim was Paul Dean,
who was knocked out in the seventh.
Capitalizing on three Washington
errors, Boston produced four runs
after two were out in the ninth in-
ning today and defeated, the Sena-
tors 5 to 3.
Philadelphia-New York
A rousing double by Frankie Hayes
off the left field screen that scored
Benny McCoy gave the Philadelphia
A's an 8-7 victory today over the
New York Yankees. McCoy and Dick
Seibert were on base when Hayes
punched out the blow.
Pittsburgh-St. Louis
Frank Gustine's single drove in
Al Lopez in the tenth inning with
the run which gave the Pittsburgh
Pirates a 4 to 3 victory over the St.
Louis Cardinals in the second game
of a double header today. Pittsburgh
also won the first game, 15 to 8.
