Twilight Game

Squad Gets Ready for
Opener With ea awks
Team To Be Juggled To Balance Its Power
Wiese, Lund, Chubb Compete for Fullback Slot

Michigan Athletic Director H. 0.
Crisler announced yesterday that the
scheduled game with Marquette Uni-
versity Sept. 23 at Milwaukee will be
played as a combination twi-night
The game will get under way at 7
p. m. and will be played as a daylight
contest until it becomes necessary to
turn the lights on. Crisler estimated
that about half of the game would
take place under artificial light.
The announcement came as some-
thing of a surprise to Wolverine foot-
ball followers as it indicates a de-
parture from a former, policy of no
night games for Michigan grid
squads. The reason for the change
was not announced although it is
known that it was made at the behest
of Marquette officials.
Played Before
Michigan has met the Hilltoppers
only once since its gridiron history
began back in 1879, beating them 6-5
in 1909. The Wolverines enjoyed an
eminently successful season that
Major League

year, winning six games and losing,
one, to Notre Dame, while running
up 116 points to the opposition's 34.
The proposal to play the Marquette
game at night was the second of two
suggested changes in the Michigan
1944 schedule. Earlier, an alumni
group from Cleveland had suggested
that the game with Purdue, slated
for Oct. 14 here, be transferred to
Cleveland's spacious Municipal Sta-
Offer Turned Down
In spite of the fact that the con-
test might have drawn a bigger crowd
in football-mad Cleveland, the Mi-
chigan Board of Athletics vetoed the
proposal. The joust with the Boiler-
makers is, along with the opener

DETROIT, July 21-(AP)--The
Detroit Tigers stormed from behind
with three runs in the ninth inning
today to defeat the Washington Sen-
ators,.6 to 5, for a sweep of the four-
game series. The rally brought the,
13th victory to Paul Trout, who help-
ed his cause with a home run.
Four unearned runs in the eighth
inning and a run doubled home in
the ninth by pitcher Early Wynn left
the Tigers with a 5 to 3 deficit when
their half of the ninth opened. How-
ever, Pinky Higgins, batting for Joe
Hoover, singled and went to third
when Eddie Mayo doubled off the
right field screen.
Roger Cramer, who recently re-
turned to the lineup after being
benched for non-hitting, lined a
single to center field, scoring two
runs. Cramer took second on the
throw to the plate and Dick Wake-
field received his third intentional
pass of the game. Chuck Hostetler
must have been deeply hurt by this
slight, for he pounced on the first

pitch for a single to center that
scored Cramer with the winning run.
The victory ran Detroit's winning
streak to five games. It was Detroit's
eighth triumph in ten starts in the
current home stand and 11th victory
in 14 games with Washington this
While he won the hard way, Trout
richly deserved the triumph. The
Tigers spotted him a two-run lead on
three hits in the second, and Trout
homered into the left field stands at
the 350 foot mark in the fourth for
his second round-tripper of the

Against Marquette
Twilight Tear, Miss Keenland and
Pensive Entered in Arlington Race
CHICAGO, July 21-(AP)--Warren Wright of Chicago, owner of the
famed Calumet Farm stable trained by Ben Jones, today entered a trio of
3-year-olds in tomorrow's $81,350 Arlington Classic in the hope of scoring
a grand slam, as he did in the 1941 Arlington Futurity.
The Calumet entry will be headed by the queen of the turf, Twilight
Tear, seeking her eleventh consecutive victory, Pensive, winner of the
Kentucky Derby and Preakness, and a surprise nomination--Miss Keenland.
Three other colts will venture against the Calumet trio in an attempt to
° upset the favorite or at least try for the lesser awards--$10,000 to the second
horse, $5,000 to third and $2,500 to fourth.

Pitcher Is Suspended
CHICAGO, July 21-(AP)-Pitch-
er Nelson Potter, a nine to five game
winner with the league-leading St.
Louis Browns, was suspended by
President Will Harridge of the Am-
erican League today pending inves-
tigation of umpire Cal Hubbard's
charges that Potter had violated the
rules of pitching by "expectorating"
on the ball.

against Iowa Pre-Flight, the high-
light of the home schedule.
Meanwhile, Coach Crisler contin-
ued to put his squad through inten-
sive drills in fundamentals -and plays,
topped off by rigorous scrimmages,
in preparation for the curtain-raiser
which is less than two months in the
offing. The Pre-Flighters invade
Ann Arbor Sept. 16.
Squad Improving
Although the squad is rapidly tak-
ing shape and showing visible im-
provement almost daily, all members
of the coaching staff have empha-,
sized that there is still much work
to be done before the Wolverines
meet the Seahawk juggernaut, last
year one of the nation's top elevens.
Crisler said that there will be a
week's break in practice sometime
during the middle of August to com-
ply with Big Ten rules requiring
some time to elapse between summer
and fall drills.
Plenty of Fullbacks
After the breathing spell, shifts
may be made in personnel and fin-
ishing touches will be applied, Cris-
ler indicated. It is probable that the
staff will do considerable juggling in
order to balance the talent at differ-
ent positions.
At the fullback slot, for instance,
Crisler has had three first-rate per-
formers in veterans Bob Wiese and
Don Lund, and newcomer Ralph
Chubb. Wiese and Chubb have dem-
onstrated almost equal ability to date.
Lund will not report to the squad for
some time.
Crisler indicated that at least one
of these men might be shifted in or-
der to transfer power to some spot
not so well supplied with talent.
