Frank Overmire Holds
White Sox to Two Hits
By the Associated Press
DETROIT, July 14-Stub Over-
mire blanked the Chicago White Sox,
2-0, allowing only two scratch singles
and facing only 30 batters today as
the Detroit Tigers took a two games
to nothing edge in the series. Dick
Wakefield hit a home run for the
Tigers with the bases empty in the
second inning, and Overmire doubled
and scored the other run in the
sixth.
The defeat dropped the Sox .into
seventh place behind the Tigers.
In a game played in the amazingly
fast time of one hour and 19 minutes,
Overmire came mighty close to a
no-hitter. Hal Trosky scratched a
hit off Rudy York's glove in the sec-
ond and Wally Moses scratched one
off Joe Hoover's glove in the sixth.
None Reach Second
Overmire didn't issue a pass, but
two other Sox got life on errors. One

was erased in' a double play, however,
and not a man reached second base
against Over mire, who likewise
blanked Chicago on June 11, the
last time he faced the Sox.
The Tigers gathered six hits off
bespectacled Bill Dietrich, and the
blow that decided the game was a
second inning homer by Wakefield,
the $52,000 beauty who yesterday re-
joined the Tigers after his release
from the Navy. Wakefield drove the
first pitch into the lower right field
stands at the 370-foot mark.
Overmire Scores
Overmire scored the other run
himself. He opened the sixth with a
line double to left field. Overmire
advanced on Joe Hoover's sacrifice,
on which Ray Schalk dropped Diet-
rich's throw for an error, and scored
on Eddie Mayo's line drive to Wally
Moses in right field.

FOOTBALL COACH "SLIP" MADIGAN of the University of Iowa started
making plans for his jaunt from Oakland, California, to Iowa City
where he was planning to get underway with summer grid practice, several
weeks ago, but as yet has not arrived.'
The publicity department at Iowa has been sending press releases
in to the Daily quite frequently stating that Madigan's arrival was
imminent from the time that the coach originally stated his plans.
We viewed the first few letters nonchalantly, but as they kept coming
in, giving the various obstacles of the peregrination, we began to take
an interest in the matter.,
Coach Madigan's first plans were altered when he found out that he
was unable to acquire train reservations for his four-member family.
However, this did not stop the intrepid Madigan, and he decided to
make the 2,200 mile trip in his car. The only catch here was that he
had to wait several days while the gas rationing board took his case
into consideration.
After many anxious moments of waiting, he finally secured permission
from the ration board to make the trip. Again Madigan and family
began hasty preparations for their departure, but these were also quelled
when leis daughter Mary, suffered hand and arm burns, which necessi-
tated two additional days of delay.
THIS TALE OF A TRIP from the Pacific Coast, which might easily be
called "Madigan's Progress", supposedly reached its final chapter when
Madigan actually got under way. But if he was under the impression that
his nightmarish episode had terminated, he should have consulted a
fortune teller, for old Jup Pluvis had other plans, and the patient Hawkeye
football coach had to wire Director E. G. Schroeder that he hoped to leave
Kimball, Nebraska as soon as possible, after being marooned there for
two days because of floods, and that is the last word we have had of
"Ghost" Madigan.
If the green Hawkeye gridders show the same determination that
was displayed by their coach, they should surmount every obstacle in
their path without too much trouble.
The Iowa football schedule only shows an eight-game card, which
the athletic department feels is heavy enough for a young squad mainly
composed of freshmen. The regular Hawkeye season will not start until
October 7 with Ohio State at Columbus, and as this marks the latest
opening date for an Iowa football team, all of the other Western Conference
football squads will have participated in from one to three games before
Iowa's 1944 season opens.
This longer period without any games will give the coaching
staff a chance to groom their team into the Hawkeye style of play
before playing the first two road games.

Coach Seeks
State Crown
Barclay Enters First
Match in Two Years
William Barclay, assistant Wolver-
ine basketball coach and manager ofj
the University of Michigan golf
course, announced his entrance in
the Michigan Open Golf Tournament
to be held Aug. 5th and 6th at the
Pontiac Orchard Lake course.
The tournament which annually
draws the best amateurs and profes-
sional golfers in the state is expected
to see its closest competition in years
because of the loss of many golfers
to the draft.
Watrous Also Entered
Coach Barclay is looking forward
to this year's tournament, his first
in two seasons, both as a warm-up
for the coming Tam O'Shanter Na-
tional Open at Chicago and as his
first large scale competition in re-
cent years. Barclay's abilities will be
tested by the expert state pros in-
cluding Al Watrous, defending cham-
pion of last year's match play.
"Watrous is the man to beat in
this year's tournament", stated Bar-
clay. "Like myself he is entering
his first tourney this season and will
be out to retain his title against all
challengers.
Has Good Record
Coach Barclay will not be playing
the Orchard Lake Course for the
first time when the tournament be-
gins. Two years ago, in his last
regular competition he registered a
neat average of 74 for four rounds.
On his home course, the University
of Michigan links, Barclay has main-
tained a 72 stroke average on the
par 72 Michigan course. Often his
scores have droppedsbelow the 70
mark and have never gone above 75. 1
Because of his previous knowledge
of the Orchard Lake course, Barclay
is confident of turning in a low
stroke total and hopeful of bringing
the Open title back to the Michigan
clubhouse.
