At Gas Stations
Storage Space Problems
Threaten As Citizens
Roll Out Old Tires
Growing piles of rubber at gas sta-
tions yesterday signified early success
in scrap rubber collections in Ann
Buckling down to the serious prob-
lem of helping to determine the exact
rubber situation, citizens rolled their
old tires and dragged the worn-out
garden hoses to their local filling sta-
tion. Manyeof them refusedthe pay-
ment of one cent per pound offered
by the gas station collection centers.
Among other organizations, the
Junior Chamber of Commerce met
yesterday with Paul R. Kempf, state
rubber salvage committee member,
and newly-appointed Edwin J. Hunt-
ington, county drive chairman, to
plan techniques for pushing the rub-
ber piles higher and higher.
Filling stations still had complaints
of the lack of scales and Kempf and
Huntington called onacitizens to lend
any kind of scales to their local fill-
ing station. But in spite of the ob-
stacles it appeared in many cases
that by the end of the week storage
space would become the main prob-
lem as patriotic citizens dumped
scrap at the stations.
State defense council head Lieut. -
Col. Harold A. Furlong remarked
that the drive isacoming "along in
as fine a manner as could be expect-
ed." He held a brief conference
here yesterday with local scrap col-
In Lansing the State Budget Of-
fice announced that from the corn-
ers of the State Government build-
ings it had collected nine tons of
scrap rubber and large amounts of
iron, paper, rags and metals.
Detroit gas stations yesterday av-
eraged 100 pounds of rubber per sta-
tion as the citizens poured the scrap
rubber onto the piles. Authorities
called on everyone to find any article
suspected of being rubber for the
The Associated Press yesterday re-
ported from Washington that the
Army had cut its use of rubber 25
per cent. Robert P. Patterson, Un-
dersecretary of War, warned that
rubber for civilian use would not be
available until 1944 at least.
In Mt. Clemens the happiest father
of the week was reported. Young
Dale Williams, on a scavenger hunt
for rubber, found four used tires in
good condition. They fit his father's
To Help Nazis
Laval Moves To Release
Germans For Army
BERN, SWITZERLAND, June 16.
-MP)-Pierre Laval, French chief of
government, is making a determined
drive to send more and more French
workers into German industry so
more German workers can be freed
for military service.
Recruiting of French workers has
now been extended to unoccupied
France for the first time. The gov-
ernment announced several days ago
that 1,300 French industries had been
shut down, releasing 20,000 workers.
Lack of raw materials was given as
Laval apparently hopes by inten-
sifying his efforts to provide more
labor to regain German favor for
his modified program of collabora-
Germany has remained noticeably
cool toward Laval's accomplishments
to date. As a result, Jacques Doriot,
editor of the pro-Nazi Paris news-
paper Le Cri Du Peuple apparently
is in greater favor.
Laval admitted openly his break
with Doriot in a luncheon speech
Saturday in Vichy. He criticized
Doriot's frequent attacks on the
Vichy Government and said:
"He never would get into unoccu-
This rupture, its is believed, is
what prompted Marshal Petain to
declare to French Legionnaires that
he and Laval walked hand-in-hand.
Apparently, in accordance with
Petain's wishes, Laval is attempting
to collaborate with the Nazis to a
degree which will not create a com-
plete rupture with the Allies or com-
pletely satisfy the Germans.

Cards Gain On Bums
NEW YORK, June 16.- (I)-The
St. Louis Cardinals sliced a half-
game off the Brooklyn Dodgers' Na-
tional League lead today as they
opened their Eastern invasion with
a 4 to 3 10-inning victory over the,
New York Giants. Enos Slaughter's
fifth homner of the year gave the
Cards their margin of victory.
That four-bagger was the second
extra base wallop of the game for
Slaughter and ruined King Carl's
otherwise fancy bid.

Ray Fslser Is IBhseball's Yost
A prominent sports writer recently referred to Michigan's baseball
coach, Ray Fisher, as the Fielding Yost of the diamond. Naturally that's a
tremendous compliment to pay any coach but when you look at Fisher's
record during his 22 years in Ann Arbor you can be sure such praise jis
The veteran mentor from Vermont has never had a team that played
under .500 ball during his entire stay at Michigan. To add to this achieve-
ment one can point out that there is no college team in the country that
has a winning percentage against the Wolverine nine.
A lot of "wiseys" like to say that Fisher scouts for his talent and conso-
quently produces great teams, but anyone who has followed Michigan base-
ball for any length of time realizes that such remarks are pure nonsense.
Take this year's team for example.
At the beginning of the season most experts thought that the Wolver-
ines would never retain their Conference crown because they had no pitch-
ing. And for awhile it looked as though they might be right. But gradually
the masterful coaching of Fisher began to produce capable pitchers.
His two leading pitchers, Mickey Fishman anc 'Pro' Boim had never
appeared in Big Ten competition before, yet they ended the season with
excellent records. In fact, they were so good that the Daily Illini and other
college papers said that it was pitching that gave Michigan its share of the
All of this can be attributed to the tireless efforts of Fisher.
This isn't the first time that the Vermont Wizard has pulled this trick.
The year before he produced Cliff Wise and Mickey Stoddard, who rated
among the best pitchers in the Big Ten.
Wolverine baseball fans can be sure that as long as Fisher has any con-
nection whatsoever with Michigan baseball they will see a winning ball club,
Michigan got its usual share of Conference titles this year as they took

To Crack- Par
CHICAGO. June 16. --)- Scor-
ing promises to run extremely low in
the Hale America National Open
Golf Tournament starting a four-
day run at the Ridgemoor Country
Club Thursday. The 107 stars gath-
ering for a 'shot at the $1,100 first
prize figure to whisk around the com-
pact course with a minimum of ex-
Par for the course is 71, but that
is for club members. Actually, the
championship layout measures only
6,519 yards and that means it is
about par 68 for the nation's top
ranking players whodwill be breez-
ing around for four days. Eighteen
hole rounds will be played each day,
winding up Sunday.
One good sized wager was made in
the club house today that a score of
274 would be required to win the
important event. That would re-
quire four rounds under 69.
Most of the big name players had
a crack at the layout this afternoon.
The most prominent absentee was
