FROM a financial point of view, the
most successful man who left the
University this June is a lanky six
foot three, 200-pound sophomore by
the name of Richard -C. Wakefield.
The young man, who has just reached
his 20th birthday, now has some-
where between $40,000 and $50,000 in
a Chicago bank and a two-year con-
tract in his pocket for $10,000.
And all this happened because a
couple of baseball scouts reported
to their home offices that Master
Richard can hit.
The reports, coupled with the fact
that Dick led the Big Ten in slugging,

home runs and runs batted in in his
first season as a college ball player
last year, stirred baseball moguls in-
to action. The final result was that
Wakefield received a nice fat con-
tract and a bonus which was some
$30,000 higher than that which has
ever been given to a university star.
It might be remembered that Lou
Boudreau, of the Indians, one of the
junior circuit's outstanding short-
stops, received a bonus of only $10,-
000 when he left school.
BIDDING for Wakefield's serv-
ices began around the latter
part of May and, as one New York
columnist put it, the "Dicker of
Wakefield" caused a sensation.
Three clubs expected to enjoy
Master Richard's services and all
but three felt as though they had
prior claims. Alva Bradley of
Cleveland was quick to point out

Next Monday At Office;
SoftballMeetings Called
Director A. A. James of the I-M
department has urged all students
who intend to participate in the
summer intra-mural sports program
to fill in the blank on this page and
return it to his office by Monday,
July 7. There are 10 sports planned
for this season's schedule, and Mr.
James expects a big turnout for all
of them.
Two or three softball leagues will
be formed again this year with
eight teams each. At the end of the
season pennant winners in each cir-
cuit will battle for the "Little World
Series" championship. Those stu-
dents who wish to participate should
attend the meetings to be held at
4:15 p.m. today and Monday at South
Ferry Field. There they will meet
with Mr. James to discuss plans for
the coming contests.
Besides softball, singles and doubles
competition is offered in tennis, hand
ball and horseshoe pitching, and
tourneys will be held for enthusiasts
of squash, table tennis, badminton
and codeball.
Although all sports activities will
end at 7:30 p.m., the I-M Building
will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
except on Saturdays when it will
close at 6 p.m. The swimming pool
will be open from 10:30 to noon and
from 3 to 5:30 daily. The building
will be closed on Sundays and holi-
days.

that Howard Wakefield, Dick's
father, had played with the Indi-
ans; Larry MacPhail of the Dodg-
ers reminded the world that he was
a Michigan alumnus; and Walter
0. Briggs of Detroit told everyone
that an Ann Arbor ball player just
naturally had to play with the
Tigers.
But when Wakefield did sign with
the Bengals he was motivated by
more than the $40,000 he was offered
-and not Detroit loyalty. So far his
record is not imposing. In his first
time at bat he grounded out on the
first ball pitched and Tiger Manager
Del Baker announced that the boy
needed a great deal more experience
before he would crawl into the lineup.
Dick will get his real test next week
in three exhibition games against
Michigan State League teams. De-
troit will play Saginaw on Monday,
Lansing on Tuesday, and Grand
Rapids Wednesday.
ACCORDING to all reports which
we have either read or heard,
Wakefield can thank Bobby Feller
and Bo-Bo Newsom for his phe-
nomenal bonus. It seems as though
the bosses of these two men, Brad-
ley and Briggs, had a big argument
last year about who had the high-
est paid pitcher in the Big Leagues
and that Briggs even boosted New-
som's salary to win the discussion.
When Master Richard was placed
on the auction block these two rivals
started bidding each other up (Mc-
Phail dropped out at $25,000) until
the Detroit boss prevailed by agree-
ing to top any Bradley offer by $2,500.
As far as the sports scribes are
concerned, the exact sum which Dick
received is unknown. Estimates how-
ever range from $40,000 to $50,000
with the most probable sum being
$42,500. And no matter what the
actual figure is, "it ain't hay."

German soldiers examined the wreckage of a Russian tank which was hit by a Nazi shell, according to
Berlin sources. The location of the tank was NOT disclosed. This photo was sent from Berlin to New York

retirement of Thomas Dudley Har-
mon as No. 1 Michigan athlete-
a post which he has held for the
last two years. However, we are
not going to waste any time feeling
sorry for him as latest reports in-
dicate that he is out in Hollywood
making a picture with Anita Louise
entitled "Tom Harmon At Michi-
gan." The pay is $6,000 a month,
we're told.

Here's something for the tennis
fans: Jim Tobin, captain of last
year's varsity squad, and Max Gur-
man, a graduate student here, are
both in the quarter-finals of the Pub-
lic Parks tournament in Detroit.
Gurman is seeded first.
