BOSTON, July 6--With Bob John-k
son hitting for the cycle and Bobbyt
Doerr driving in five runs, the Boston
Red Sox trounced the Detroit Tigers,
13 to 3, today to give Tex Hughson
a soft touch for his 13th victory of
the season.
Hughson, who beat Detroit 11 to 1
a month ago, was backed by a 20-hit
attack on rookie Ruffus Gentry and
two successors. All nine Boston play-
ers contributed to the handsome
total, but Johnson and Doerr were
particularly damaging.
Johnson, whose homer deprived
Paul Trout of a shutout yesterday,
belted a homer, a triple, a double
and a single for the cycle. Doerr,
who batted in five runs in the night-
cap of yesterday's double-header,
duplicated the feat while smashing
out a triple, double and two singles.
Meanwhile, Hughson spaced 10 hits,
bearing down only when he had to.
Pinky Higgins singled home a run
in the sixth and Jimmy Outlaw slam-
med a two-run homer in the eighth,
his third round-tripper of the season.
This consolation prize made things
not much more happy for manager
Steve O'Neill of the Tigers, who
reached his 53rd birthday today.
The victory gave the Red Sox a
split of the four-game series with
Detroit, whose record against East-
ern opponents on the current trip
is five victories and five defeats. The
Tigers open a four-game series to-
morrow against the Yankees at New
York before returning home.
The. Boston runs came in clusters
of three and two. Five hits in the
second 'inning off Gentry produced
three runs and Gentry was chased
in another three-run rally in the
third, Jake Mooty replacing him.
Mooty yielded two more runs in the
fourth, and Walter (Boom Boom)
Beck arrived on the scene in the
fifth, giving up five runs in the last
four frames.-

While recuperating from the strain and stress of finals betweenE
semesters, I took a trip to the Windy City, and from there to Evanston
where the finals of the National Intercollegiate tennis championship were I
being held July 1. Here I witnessed one of the greatest exhibitions oft
tennis that I have ever seen, as Pancho Francisco Segura of the Universityf
of Miami successfully defended his singles crown against the efforts
of Notre Dame's Chuck Samson in straight sets.,
Under a broiling July sun, the South American star, ranked third
nationally, continually set up his opponent with his seemingly endless1
repertoire of shots, and then blasted terrific two-handed placement
shots past the astonished Samson. Segura was like a tiger on the g
court, his aggressiveness keeping his opponent off balance, and his
spectacular shots always brought a round of applause from the eager f
At first, it looked as though Segura would win easily, taking the first
set, 6-0. However, the nervous Samson, snapped out of his lethargy, and
his valiant comeback and fine sportsmanship made a lasting impression.f
In the second set, Segura had to go all out to emerge with a 6-4
win, as Samson made his last bid for victory. This set was marked by
excellent vollies from both sides of the court, but the Latin American ace+
had too much stamina for his adversary.
In this set, the Notre Dame coach had the right idea in making
Samson play Segura with drop shots, which appeared to be the only
way that he had a chance to win the match. But the agile Segura
%olved this delivery of Samson's by keening him in the backcourt with
his drives, and then catching him flat-footed with his tantalizing drop
Samson, one of the few unseeded players in the history of the tourna-
rient to ever reach the finals, capitulated 6-0 in the third set. With a
little more luck on some of his shots, which just barely skimmed the net
and could have gone either way, Samson could have. made a tighter
game of it. But as it was, the colorful Segura, who reproached himself
in Spanish when he missed easy shots, went on to retain his hard-earned
Segura's impressive form and flawless style establishes him as one
of the greatest amateur stars still in competition. With most of the
great athletes in some service or other, a player like Segura stands out
like a sore thumb and will draw huge crowds,- because nowadays they
are the exception rather than the rule. For this reason, sports' lovers
all over the country will go to untold hardships to see any such athlete
who may remind them of past events and of their former idols.

Turnout Satisfies Crisler; Expects
150 Candidates by End of Week

Squad Is Lightest in
Many Years; Westfall
Status Still Doubtful
Michigan's second day of football
practice took on a more serious as-
pect yesterday as the squad of ap-
proximately 100 aspirants got down
to work after Tuesday's session with
the photographers and reporters.
Head Coach Herbert O. (Fritz)1
Crisler and Clarence Munn, Earl
Martineau, Bennie Oosterbaan, and
Art Valpey, assistant mentors, drove
the squad through a long and stren-
uous workout in the blistering July
Crisler stated that he thought the
already large squad might become
even larger before the week is out,
possibly numbering as many as 150
candidates. He expressed himself as
well satisfied with the turnout but
bemoaned the lack of weight and the
dearth of material for the line.
Lack Tackles
"We have only one experienced
man, Clem Bauman, to count on at
tackle", he stated, "and I haven't
seen anything yet to relieve the situ-
ation. Guess we'll have to look for
them someplace else."
In an interview Tuesday, Line
Coach Munn expressed a slightly
more optimistic view, commenting on
the number of freshmen with prom-
ising high school records who have
shown up to advantage in prelimi-
nary workouts.

Crisler was obviously disappointed
at the lack of size of his line candi-
dates, observing that "this is one
of the smallest squads as far as
weight is concerned that I've had at
When questioned about his back-
field, the Wolverine mentor bright-
ened at the thought of having such
stalwarts as fullbacks Bob Wiese and
Don Lund, quarterback Joe Ponsetto,
and tailback Bob Nussbaumer to
build around. However, only Lund
is certain to be available for the en-
tire season as the other trio is liable
to Navy transfer at the end of the
summer semester.
To Pick First String
Crisler said that he would pick out
the 11 most likely looking prospects
for his tentative first string and
build an offense around them, rather
than trying to mould his team into a
set style of attack. Here, he was
taking into consideration the fact
that only one of his returning backs,
Nussbaumer, is the flashy scatback
type while Wiese and Lund are both
power runners.
Yesterday's practice, which lasted
almost a full three hours, saw a vig-
orous program of work on the block-
ing dummies, passing drills, and con-
ditioning exercises, after which the
squad was divided into eight teams
and run through light signal drills.
Westfall's Status in Doubt
Crisler emphasized that the divi-
sion of the squad into elevens was
for practice purposes only and was
not made on the basis of merit. Such

a division will not be made until
the staff has had an opportunity to
look over the material more thor-
oughly, he said.
Most 'of the returning lettermen
were placed on the first team "for
demonstration purposes". These in-
cluded Art Renner, end; Bauman,
tackle; Harold Watts, center; and
backs Nussbaumer, Wiese, and Pon-
setto. Lund is expected to arrive
here at a later date.
The status of "Bullet Bob" West-
fall, the great Wolverine All-Ameri-
can fullback of 1941 and a member
of the famed Harmon-Westfall-Ev-
ashevski combination is still in doubt.
Westfall has indicated that he in-.
tends to enter the University in No-
vember and under the "duration"
rules of the Western Conference he
would be eligible for another year of
collegiate competition.
However, Westfall'has been dick-
ering with Fred Mandel, owner of
the Detroit Lions, the Motor City's
entry in the National Professional
Football League, and may play pro
ball. Crisler said that he has heard
nothing new from Westfall to indi-
cate that he has come to a decision.
Yanks Acquire Flick
The Philadelphia Athletics announc-
ed today a trade with the New York
Yankees, whereby they acquired out-
fielder Larry Rosenthal in exchange
for outfielder Lew Flick and an un-
i announced sum of cash.
