Medics Score
8-2 Victory
Over Moose
Kolesar's Arm, Bat
Pace Winners; Rubber
Game Next Saturday
Bob Kolesar pitched the Victor
Vaughan softball team to an 8-2 vic-
tory over the Mooses of Company C
yesterday in revenge for the 1-0 loss
the Medics suffered a week ago at
the hands of the Mooses.
A rubber game is scheduled be-
tween the two teams Saturday.
The cavorting Mooses, championed
by their pitcher Moose Kalombato-
vich did not let the fear of defeat
keep them from their antics. In an
attenpt to sabotage Kolesar, they
gave him a hot water bottle filled
with ice to warm his pitching arm.
When Kolesar's fireball started
burning in, the Mooses rushed out
with a hose to quench the fire on the
plate, while Wesley Farbach, first
baseman, played the game in shorts.
One joke backfired, however. When
K0lombatovich pulled the Dizzy
Dean act of calling the hit for Kole-
sar, the Medic pitcher promptly
clouted out a home run and paved
the way: for his victory.
"Something new has been added"
to the Mooses uniforms. They ap-
peared, not with the regular numbers
1,2, 3, 4, and so on, but with 1, 1/2,
1% 4nd 00. Kalombatovich took the
ane' in sportsmanlike fashion, but
vowed he would get revenge next

Backs Star
In Th ird of
Six Battles
Winding up its third week of prac-
tice, Michigan's football team yester-
day held the third of six scrim-
mages allowed it during the four
weeks of summer drills.
Coach Fritz Crisler used practical-
ly all his players in the battle of
the "Blues" and "Reds," repeatedly
switching the backfields and lines
as the "Blues," the team on offense,
tried plays from all parts of the
With Jack Wink absent the start-
ing backfield consisted of Hugh Mack
at quarter, Paul White and, Elroy
Hirsch at the halvec, and Bob Wiese
at full, with Bill Daley alternating
at half and full, and George Kiesel
changing off with Mack. After Wiese,
Daley, Hirsch, and White, all of
whom stood out, had broken away
for several touchdown sprints, Crisler
used Bob Stenberg at full, and Howie
Wikel and Bob Nussbaumer at the
In the line Crisler used Farnum
Johnson and Art Renner at the ends,
Bob Hanzlik, Johnny Greene and Pat
Boyle alternating at the two tackle
posts, Ralph Amstutz and Johnny
Gallagher, in the absence of Julie
Franks, at guards, and Merv Pregul-
man and Fred Negus changing off at
center on what might be called the
first team.
The Wolverines will top off their
last week of the summer drills with
scrimmages Tuesday and Thursday
and what will be the closest to an
intra-squad game that they have had
since last spring, next Saturday.
Then they will take a week off be-
fore starting Fall practice for their
opener Sept. 18..
As yet no game has been arranged
for the opening in the schedule left
when Michigan State dropped foot-
ball, but Crisler hopes to have a tilt
set by next week..

DETROIT, Aug. 14.- (P)- The
Washington Senators staged a three-
run ninth inning rally today to de-
feat the Detroit Tigers, 7 to 4, for an
even break in the four-game series,
and lefty Hal Newhouser thus
suffered his sixth successive setback.
Bothered with a lame arm for sev-
eral weeks, Newhouser fanned 11
Senators to boost his season total to
104, but in between Washington
gathered nine hits and the .Tigers
committed five errors. That all add-
ed up to a defeat that dropped De-
troit back to the American League's
fifth place.
The Tigers came from uehind
three times before the fatal ninth. In
the seventh they got rid of Alex Car-
rasquel, but Early Wynn came on the
scene to stop Detroit cold and gain
his 13th victory. It was Newhouser's
1th defeat against seven triumphs.
Detroit will try to climb back into
the first division tomorrow in a
doubleheader with the Philadelphia
Athletics. Virgil Trucks and Tommy
Bridges will face Jesse Flores and
Luman Harris of the A's on the
There were three errors behind
Newhouser in the ninth. Angelo
Giuliani was safe Qn Pinky Higgins'
boot and advanced on a sacrifice.
George Case walked and Mickey Ver-
non singled sharply to right to drive
in the winning run. An error by Ned
Harris permitted the runners to take
an extra base.
With Jake Powell at bat, the
speedy Case broke for the plate and
probably would have beaten the play
for a clean steal, but Powell took a
swing at Newhouser's toss and sin-
gled to left field,, scoring. both Case
and Vernon. That gaye Powell four
runs batted in for .thergame.
In the seventh Dick Wakefield got
his second of three singles, stole sec-
ond and beat the throw- to- third on

doubles and one homer, the second-

Philadelphia's Athletics 12 to 9 at
League Park today to sweep the five-
game series and boom"their winning
streak to seven.
The game was finished under a
protest by Earl Mack, acting mana-
ger of the A's, of an umpire's deci-
sion in the seventh inning.
With one out and Frank Skaff on
second, Irv *Hall hit a fly to right.
Roy Cullenbine caught the ball and
sought to make a double play by
throwing to second. The ball dropped
out of his hand as he cocked his arm
to throw.
Hal Weafer, the first base umpire,
ruled Hall safe, but Manager Lou
Boudreau's protest brought a con-
ference of Weafer and his mates,
George Pipgras and Ernie Stewart,
and the decision was reversed.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 14-(P)-De-
spite recurrent rumors and gloomy
predictions in sporting circles, base-
ball and all other sports except rac-
ing escaped unscathed in the new
draft-rule changes tonight.
Generally, professional athletes got
a break that should at least keep
them operating as usual a little long-
er provided they have children born
before Sept. 15, 1942.
The big news for baseball players
and.most other professional athletes
was that the list of non-deferrable
activities and occupations was ex-

tended without touching them. If a
man's job lands on this list, he must
switch to more ''war-useful" work
or risk speedy induction, even if he
has children.
All jobs connected with "race
tracks and courses" were declared
non-deferrable, but no definition was
sent out to draft boards to show
whether that included jockeys and
trainers, who aren't tied to track op-
erations-if that's what the draft of-
ficials had in mind.
The only sports-connected job out-
side of racing that landed on the new
list was "hunting and fishing guide."

EVANSTON, Ill., Aug. 14-(AP)-
Dorothy Germain, 19-year-old play-
ground supervisor from Philadelphia,
Pa., who because of a drouth of golf-
ing activity in the east decided to
keep her woods and irons hot in this
summer's women's Western Golf As-
sociation tournaments, today won the
W.W.G.A.'s Amateur Championship.
Becoming the first Eastern cham-
pion in the history of this 43-year-old
amateur event, Miss Germain de-
feated Mary Agnes Wall of Menomi-
nee, Mich., 5 and 4, over the 35-hole
championship route of the Evanston
Golf Club.
For Miss Wall, 24-year-old vete-
ran of seven summers in the Wom-
en's Western wars, the loss was a big
disappointment, especially since she
was right in the scrap up to the start
of the final nine hole round. Two
years ago she also was a finalist in
this meet, only to lose to Mrs. Russell
Mann of Omaha, Neb.
At no time up to the final blow-off
on the last five holes did either play-
er hold more than a two-up lead
today. Miss Germain had that much

of an advantage 4t one time during
the first nine of' the morning round,
but the two girls came to theturn all
Never ahead during the first nine,
Miss Wall'had her turn on the sec-
ond nine, twice going into a one-up
lead only to have Miss Germain over
take her. But she won the 18th hole
and went to lunch with a one-up
On the outgoing nine of the after-
noon tour, Miss Germain evened
things at the 20th, went one up at
the 21st, saw the match squared at
the 23rd and regained the .one up
edge at the 24th. She made, it two up
at the 26th but dropped the 27th to
Miss Wall to lead one up going into
the back nine.

--Coach E. L. (Curly) Lambeau took
time out from his job of checking

Despite the loss of many veterans
to the armed forces, Lambeau ex-

year's squad and 12 new men in uni-
form when practice begins tomorrow.
