MAJOR LEAGUE STANDINGS:
Bosox Threaten Yankee Lead;
Win Two As Champions Split

rr The Cracker Barrel
By Mike Bann
'., Daily Sports Editor

By HALE CHAMPION
(From Associated Press Summaries)
The best thing that could happen
to either major league this season
seems about to happen in the junior
circuit. It is the American League,
strangely enough, that threatens to
have a pennant race.
With the Yanks unable to pull out
of their tail spin, and Boston's Red
Sox continuing their blistering pace
the glorious Fourth may yet find the
pennant by no means decided.
Not just Boston and New York
are in the picture. Detroit and
Cleveland have hung in close re-
markably well and at times have
shown enough potential strength to
warrant consideration.
The up and coming Red Sox pulled
to within 4/2 games of the faltering
World Champions yesterday as they
whipped the Washington Senators
twice while the Ruppert Rifles could
do no better than split with the sev-
enth place A's. It took a ninth in-
ning rally to do that.
Boston Beats Bums
BROOKLYN, June 3.-Hugh Casey,
Brooklyn's cheif relief hurler, failed
in his first starting assignment of
the year today as the Boston Braves
pounded him for three runs in four
innings and then went on to whip the
Dodgers, 4 to 3.

pitcher John Lindell won his own ball
game today by driving in the winning
run with a single in a three-run ninth
inning rally that brought the New

Seen In Lack
Of Engineers
"An extreme shortage of men with
technical training may well prove to
be as dangerous a bottleneck as the
shortage of materials," Prof. Alfred
H. Lovell, secretary of the College of
Engineering, said yesterday.
"Industry, Army and Navy demands
for engineers will exceed the 200,000
mark for the next year as compared
to a normal graduating class of about
110,000,",according to Professor Lov-
ell, who has just returned from the
50th annual summer meeting of the
Society for the Promotion of Engin-
eering Education at Columbia Uni-
versity.
He chaired a committee on
junior collegep which studied the
operation and effect of the acceler-
ated program.
Dean Ivan C. Crawford of the En-
gineering College also attended the
meeting and then went to Washing-
ton to do some work in connection
with his post on the Advisory Coun-
cil for the Military Training of the
Ordnance Department.
Dr. Richard T. Liddicoat present-
ed a paper on "The Falling Bar Prob-
lem," and Prof. Frank L. Schwart,

anical Engineering Lab Instruction."

NEW YORK, June 30.-(P)-Lefty
Cliff Melton attained his tenth vic-
tory of the season tonight by holding
the Philadelphia Phils to seven hits
as the New York Giants eked out a
4 to 3 decision which was made close
by Stan Benjamin's two-run homer
in the eighth.
Repatriation Resumed
VICHY, June 30.-(P)-The Ger-
mans have resumed the repatriation
of French wounded and war prison-
ers, it was announced in the occupied
zone today, following the campaign
to send French workers into the Reich
to work in factories.

i Nine To Start Soon
BETWEEN 35 and 40 hopeful base-
ball players turned out for Coach
Ray Fisher's diamond practice yes-
terday afternoon. Very few of the
boys looked like Big Ten caliber al-
though there were a number of prom-
ising freshmen.
Fisher is wasting no time, despite
this lack of grade A material, and
will probably have his boys play-
ing regular scheduled games with-
in 10 days. Four local teams: King
Seeley, American Broach, Bell Tele-
phone and Blue Front will be the
first nines that the Wolverines will
face.
DESPITE your columnist's story
last week pointing out the tre-'
mendous success of Tom Harmon in
the Army Air Force Ann Arbor rum-
or mongers are keeping the wires
humming with the tale that Tom was
"washed out."
In fact, when Harmon went into
a Santa Ana broadcasting station
several weks ago to do an Army pro-
gram, some of the announcers offered
their condolences. Harmon nearly
blew a fuse because that very day he
had been commended for excellent
work.
Your columnist's final word on
this subject is that if all the Allied
pilots were as good as Harmon the
English would still be enjoying
their tea and crumpets in Tobruk.
WE'LL BET dollars to doughnuts
that the coaches are getting more
of a workout than the students in
the new PEM program. Normally
the coaches are getting more of a
work out than the students in the new
PEM program. Normally the coaches
never had to work too hard. They
used to teach an hour or two in the
morning and then coach their differ-
ent sports in the afternoon for sev-
eral hours.
Now all that's changed. The
mentors have to get up before 8
o'clock every morning and toddle
down to Ferry Field to start their
classes. They work all day except
for a short rest at the noon hour.
It's a tough grind and don't think
for a minute that they aren't tired
when they get home.
We heard Biggie Munn say the oth-
er day, after putting several hundred
boys through a difficult routine, "I
think I'll take. a leave of absence
from this and vacation with the Ma-
rines for several weeks."
THERE ARE no greater sport fans
in An1n Arbor than five cab com-
pany executives who go by the names
of Don, Ed, Bill and Carl. Being con-
structive critics of the Daily sport
page (whatever that may be) they
feel horse racing should receive a
more prominent play in the paper. So
for their benefit I will pick the win-
nerskfor today's races at the Detroit
track'
First race: Shantytown all the
way.
Second race: Valdina Alden-a
stab in the dark..

Third race: Polaris-money in1
the bank.
Fourth race: Swell Chance-all
alone (won't pay much).1
Fifth race: Samborombon-not a
safe investment.
Sixth race: Sea Marriage-out of
the hat.
Seventh race: Valdina Groom-
from a great stable.
Eighth race: Good Taste-if you
have any money left.
Pat Mullin, the former Detroit Tig-
er outfield star, will play on the All
Service team against the Major Leag-
uers July 7. It was first expected
that Mullin would not compete for
the same reason that Hank Green-
berg won't-too involved in military
training. But the deeply tanned sol-
dier made his way from an Army re-
ception center at New Cumberland,
Pa., yesterday and promptly joined
in a workout with his future team-
mates at Great Lakes, Ill.
Big names that will dot the Serv-
ice team lineup are Don Paggett
(Cardinals), Sam Chapman (Ath-
letics), Joe Grace (Browns), Morrie
Arnovich (Giants), and Frank
Baumholtz, (Cincinnati Reds).
Coach Mickey Cochrane arranged
today a test for his entire service
team by scheduling a game for Fri-
day with Sutherland of Kalamazoo.
Saturday the Great Lakes team; aug-
mented by the Navy men on the All
Star team, will play Fort Custer,
which will use the Army stars, at
Detroit's Briggs Stadium.
Huge New Budget
May Bring Closure
On Private Debts
WASHINGTON, June 30.-(P)-A
new fiscal year began tonight with a
war budget so huge that the Treas-
ury raised the possibility that citi-
zens may have to be given a mora-
torium on their private debts so that
they will be able to pay commensur-
ate taxes.
The budget for the new year calls
for the spending of $67,000,000,000
for direct war activities; about
$6,000,000,000 more for other gov-
ernmental programs, and $4,000,000,-
000 for financing governmental cor-
porations primarily engaged in sup-
plementing the war effort.
Against this proposed cash outlay
of approximately $77,000,000,000, tax
receipts from existing statutes would
provide only about $17,000,000,000.
A new tax bill now pending in the
House Ways and Means Committee
is designed to raise about $6,000,000,-
000 a year.
At the turn of the fiscal year,
Randolph E. Paul, tax advisor to the
Treasury, made public a memoran-
dum to Congress in which he said
that the problem of drastic tax in-
creases upon persons who spend a
large part of their income to pay
debts, particularly to buy homes,
"could be dealt with from a wider
point of view by some sort of more
or less general moratorium on debt
payments, at least for home owners."

Soldiers' Grid
Squads To Play
FullSchedule'
WASHINGTON, June 30.-UP)-A {
schedule of big time football for
soldiers was outlined at the War De--'
partment today after the appoint-
ment of Grantland Rice, sports col-
umnist, as head of a civilian cor-
poration set up to handle details of
the program.
Eight contests with teams of the
National Pro League, five for the
Army's western squad and three for
the eastern soldiers' outfit have been
booked for next fall.
Rice said his corporation, War
Football Fund, Inc., would advise
the Army on the gridiron program
end would handle the financial end.
All receipts from the contests will go
to the Army Emergency Relief Fund.
Members of the squads will be
drawn from the 1,000 or more profes-
sional and collegiate players now in
the Army. Officers and enlisted men
alike will be eligible. Each squad will
number around 50.
"'We're going to get the two best
head coaches we can find," Rice said.
"If men in the Army are unable to
serve because of military duties, then
we will find top-ranking civilians to
handle the job."
Rice said Major Wallace Wade,
now stationed at Fort Bragg, and
Lieut.-Col. Bob Neyland, with the
field artillery, would be "ideal"
choices.
