Special to The Daily
SOUTH BEND, June 23.-Baced
by Ben Smith, newly-elected Presi-
dent of the Intercollegiate Golf As-
sociation of America, three Michigan
golfers stroked their way into the
individual match play rounds of the
National Intercollegiate Golf Tour-
nament here yesterday, but the Big
Ten champions salvaged only a ninth
inteam standings.
Capt. John Leidy, whose 153 was
safely within the qualifying limit,
with rew, explaining that he found
it necessary to return to summer
school and catch up with his school
His withdrawal left Smith and
Chandler Simonds as the Wolver-
ines only entrants in the individual
championship struggle which begins
Stewart Is Medalist
Medalist in the meet was Earl
Stewart, whose 71-70-141 was the
principle factor in Louisiana State's
tie with Stanford for the .team
championship, both squads posting
aggregate scores of 590.
In a gesture of sportsmanship the,
20-year-old defending champ, who
will enlist in the army next week,
relinquished medalist honors to Dick
Haskell of Northwestern.
Haskell, who at 26 is the oldest
player competing on the Chain 0'
Lakes course, finished with a 142,
hooking a 73 onto his sub-par 69
"I qualified automatically, any-
way," Stewart modestly explained,
'and was just competing for the
team championship."
Stewart's 71-70-141 will stand,
however, as a new qualifying record.
hi' 142 last year established a med-
alist mark.
Behind Stewart and Haskell at
145 were Eddie Johnston of Balti-
more University and Burleigh Jacobs
of Wisconsin, the 1938 Western Am-
ater medalist.
Eckis Ineligible
Bob Eckis, Jr., the Colgate ace,
caine in with 148 but was declared
ineligible as a freshman after Coach
William Courtright, Sr., of Michigan
filed a written protest. Officials said
that because of the confusion in se-
mesters resulting in wartime aca-
demic changes, Eckis' status had
been overlooked.
Forty nine players were banked in
brackets from 149 to 155, the dead-
line, with Yale qualifying seven,
Stanford six and a total of.27 schools
having representatives.
Frank McCan of Stanford, the
Pacific Coast champion, barely made
the grade with 154 while those left
out in the cold included Jim Mc-
Carthy of Illinois, Big Ten titlist
with 156.

Following Stanford and LSU in
the team standings were Northwest-
ern 597; Washington 604; Yale 605;

The Dies Committee charged today
that the Communist Front organi-

to "discredit" and "obliterate" Con-
gress and thus alter the American
form of government.
A spearhead of the attack, the
Committee charged, was the Union
for Democratic Action, which it de-r
scribed as an "organization com-

Union was a Communist Front or-

# H-IE BIG QUESTION in the minds
of all Wolverine track fans is
"What's wrong with Bob Ufer?"
Up to the beginning of this year's
outdoor season the bespectacled jun-
ior was being called Michigan's great-
est runner because of his brilliarlt
performances in the indoor meets. He
had cracked the national 440 yard
record and appeared to be getting
better all the time.
But contrary to predictions Ufer
failed to hit his stride in the out-
door competition. He not only
failed to win his events but time
and again finished a race without#
scoring any points. In the Con-
ference meet, the Big Ten-Pacific
Coast Meet, and the NCAA meet,
it was the same story-Ufer just
didn't have what it takes to win.
Some people might say that the
competition was tough. But after
all Ufer was the greatest. If he were
running as he once ran, he would
have taken at least some of thse
Other fans are quick to point out
the time old cry that, Ufer just wasn't
trying. But this is also unfounded.
According to his coach, Ken Doherty,
and the men on the team Bob is giv-
ing everything he has each time he
Then what is the reason for Ufer's
fall from the highest rungs of the
track world?
Your columnist can't say definite-
ly. Nor can any one else. One can
only speculate.
outdoor meet Ufer suffered a leg
injury and failed to hit his stride.
From then until now, even though his
leg has healed, he is still not him-
Therefore because Ufer is phys-
ically all right and because he js
out there trying his best to win, one

feels that there can be only one
other factor needed to make Ufer
a great runner again. That factor'
is self confidence. His poor show-
ing in the outdoor Conference meet
shattered Bob's belief in his own
ability. The speedster no longer
felt that' he could race with the
best of them.
In track, probably, more than any
other sport the added push that one
gets from self confidence is the dif-
ference between a winner and a loser.
As soon as Bob gets that confidence
back again he will be able to step
down the necks of every one of the
men that have beaten him this year.
One can never be sure that an ath-
lete under those conditions will dome
back once he is down, but one can
be sure that a great will always comes
back a winner. And that is why
Ufer will be out there winning next
year, because he is a great runner
and # fine athlete.
burgh Pirates have announced
that they have transferred the op-
tion of Big Johnny Gee, ex-Wolver-
ihe hurler, front the Toronto Club
to the Atlanta Club. Gee, who is
six feet six inches tall, was pur-
chased by the 'Pirates for $75,000
several years ago. Last season Gee
won two and lost two while pitch-
ing for Toronto . . . Bill Watson,
1938 Wolverine track captain, is
continuing to gain laurels in the
cinder world. In the AAU meet in
New York last Saturday, Bill won
the shot put an. hammer throw
while placing in discus and broad
jump. He was the highest indi-
vidual scorer of the evening
Fritz Crisler, Wolverine Grid
Coach, is still considering the pro-
posal of playing the Michigan-
Great Lakes football game at De-
troit's Briggs Stadium this fall.
Chances of the plan going through
however are very slim. Despite the
war, varsity athletic teams will
appear in more contests'this year
than they did in the 1941-42 sea-

(From Associated Press Summaries)
A mad Russian-Lou Novikoff by
name-seems to have stolen Joe Di-
1Vaggio's batting eye.
At least Joltin' Joe can't find it,
while the hitherto helpless Novikoff
has been annihiliating National
Leagte pitching a( a rate approach-
ing .500 for the past three weeks.
Known to the trade as the biggest
baseball floppero'o of the last two
years, Novikoff was a minor league
sensation from Class D to the Ameri-
can Association before making his
dismal appearances for the dismal
Chicago Cubs.
Whether it Was the atmosphere or
the pressure no one will ever know,
but the zany Mr. Novikoff became
in the bigtime an automatic out,
the guy they walk the pitcher to
get to.
Three weeks ago the tune changed
and now every other day he breaks
up a game for the Cubs with one of
his long distance smashes, yester-
day's victims being the Philadelphia
Phils. His three run homer was the
main instrument of torture in an 8-41
The New York Giants may not be
able to handle their rivals from
across the river, but they have a real
hex-sign on Mr. Bill McKechnie and

chucking of Bill Lohrman. It was
their seventh victory in nine starts
against the Reds.
