From Associated Press Summaries
Now that the baseball season is
entering the homestretch, it looks
like a cinch for the slugging Yanks
in the American League and the
toulgh Brooklyn Bums in the Nation-
al. But the season isn't wrapped up
yet and it's interesting to see just
where the Tigers will end up.
Del Baker's boys are making their
bid for a berth in the first division.
Yesterday they combined successive
home runs by Barney McCosky and
Rudy York in the fourth inning with
a sweet job of pressure pitching by
Rookie Hal White to topple the
The game was the opener of a
four-game showdown series and the
win by the Tigers puts them only
two games behind Luke Sewell's
The Tigers slapped their ex-team-
mate Eldon Auker for all four of,
their runs. Once again Johnny Li-'
pon grabbed himself two more hits
to keep up his torrid batting pace
for the Tigers.

MacDonald Predicts Big
LANSING, Aug. 21 -tP)-Thomas
H. MacDonald, chief of the U. S.
Public Roads Administration, told
3 the State Administrative Board to-
day Michigan is blazing the trail for
a new motor transportation era on
which the lives of many large muni-
cipalities will depend.
The next few decades, MacDonald
declared, will see emphasis placed
on the construction of limited access
highways and cross-town. routes to
serve municipalities of 50,000 or more
population, and a lagging in the de-
velopment of rural roads.
MacDonald, here to inspect a num-
ber of Michigan's key highway de-
velopments, said larger cities
throughout the land would be forced
in "self-defense" to see to it that
their main motor transport highways
are streamlined to the needs of the
He said downtown business es-
tablishments in some areas are starv-
ihg for business because customers
refuse to buck traffic congestion and"
a lack of parking space. While subur-
ban business enterprises prosper, he
said, some of the downtown busi-
nesses are being throttled by traffic
jams to the extent that their proper-
ties are not worth the amount of the
mortgages on them.
Highway planning surveys must
provide the answer, he said, adding
tat without advance preparation

Dick Wakefield, the $5,000 outfielder
Who graduated from the University
of Michigan to the Detroit Tiger
farm system, has begun paying divi-
dends on the Tigers' investment.
Wakefield was named the most
valuable player of the Texas League
by sports writers of the circuit.

leading the league in hitting. over
the .350 mark, leadi g in number ofI

runs scored, was far ahead of the
Wakefield received 51 points, and
was first choice of eight of the 17
sports writers who participated.
Hank Oana, Fort Worth's star pitch-
er who was converted from an out-
fielder early in the season, was sec-
ond with 27 votes; Earl Caldwell,
veteran Fort Worth hurler, was next
with 21, and Paul Dean, staging a,
fine comeback with the Houston
Buffs, was fourth with 15.'

season with only two defeats. Theyl

But to take this attitude would be
looking only at one side of the pic-
Just take a glance at what has
happened to the Wolverine's strong-
es, foes. Northwestern has been rid-
dled like a sponge because of the
ciraft and the war. Minnesota has lost
one of the nation's finest coaches in
a year in which they have only three

coaching staff is intact, and it has

Sure, the Varsity may drop two,
they may do worse than that--that is
if the breaks go against them. No
team can beat lady luck.
But if Michigan gets through with
the average amount of injuries, ifI
it fumbles only the average amount4

average amount of penalties you can
bet dollars to doughnuts they'll walk
off with the Conference title.

n n.Prices Of Fo od
WASHINGTON, Aug. 21 -UP)-
Price Administrator Leon Henderson
predicted today that if the June 15-
July 15 rate of increase continued,
foods over which the OPA has no
control woud cost housewives 30 per-
cent more a year from now.
Uncontrolled food prices rose 2.5
percent between mid-June and mid-
July, Henderson reported, on top of
a 4.8 percent increase in the month
previous. This compared with an in-
crease of only three-tenths of 1
percent in the June 15-July 15 per-
iod for food prices under OPA con-
trols. These had declined 1 percent in
the previous month.
"The price increases in uncontroll-
ed food are drawing a dangerous pat-
tern," Henderson said, adding that
his figures were obtained from the
Bureau of Labor Statistics.

ticipating in an All-Campus Ten-

MICHIGAN'S DICK WAKE-
FIELD is way out in front now
of Wally "Hoot" Evers for the Texas
League batting crown. About mid-
season Evers was leading Dick by
seven points, blut flow the tables are
turned -and the ex-Wolverine star
is socking the old applie at a .361
clip while Evers has to content him-
self with a .331 average. Having bat-
ted in 166 runs already Dick is going
after the RBI record and may crack
it with a few breaks.
Elmer Raab of Ann Arbor has
finally brought real horseshoe
laurel to this city. He won the state
contest in Detroit several days ago
by making the highest ring percen-
tage ever played in Michigan with
76 percent ringers for seven games.
