below-par pace today to defeat Mike
De Massey, San Jose, Calif., 5 and 4
in their 36-hole first round match
of the 1944 national P. G. A. cham-
The former U. S. open and P. G.
A. titlist, shooting a 3-under-par 69
on the first eighteen, held a 5 up
lead at the half-way mark. He lost
a hole on the third nine and was 4
up at the 27th.
At the 30th, he had increased the
margin to six holes, lost the 31st and
coasted ou to victory with a par 4
half on the 32nd.
Nelson's 69 this morning was his
third successive round at that figure.
The man to course requires 36-36-
72 for par. De Massey finished the
first round at 75. He carded nine
straight 4s on the third nine. Nelson
finished three under par for the 32

Derricotte Lost
To Wolverines
Michigan's football team lost its
second man to the armed service in
two weeks when Gene Derricotte,
freshman scatback from Defiance,
Ohio, passed his Army physical.

Derricotte's call is expected to
come before the season opener with
the Seahawk's of Iowa Sept. 16. His
loss follows Dick Rifenburg's enlist-
ment in the Merchant Marine two
weeks ago.
Derricotte had shown well in prac-
tice, drawing praise from Head
Coach Fritz Crisler. He was a can-
didate for the tailback slot with Bob
Nussbaumer and Bill Culligan.
Though smaller than most backfield
candidates, Derricotte was one of
the hardest runners on the squad~and;
an accurate passer, but he was con-
tinually plagued with minor injuriesI
during summer practice.

Greene Asks for Health Checkup
WASHINGTON, Aug. 16--A)--Abe J. Greene, president of the
National Boxing Association, proposed today a plan of periodical psy-
chiatric and medical examinations to keep "punch drunk and anti-
quated" fighters from beating themselves to death or mental breakdown
on the comeback trail.
Asserting in a letter to all NBA commissions that "the manager's
avarice" always has been a big factor in putting such men back into
the ring, Greene urged that managers be made responsible for report-
ing any signs of mental or physical deterioration to the examining
boards which would be set up as adjuncts to boxing commissions.
Often it is difficult for a commissioner to determine in a routine
pre-fight examination whether a boxer is in shape to go, Greene said,
illustrating with the case of Lem Franklin, killed in a new Jersey bout.
Death was attributed to a blow on the chin that "carried to his
damaged brain center," Greene said, declaring that such conditions
can be diagnosed "only through a thorough medical examination such
as cannot be administered in a routine boxing check."
