N 1935, the Cincinnati Reds started night baseball and after its immedi-
ate success, even the most prejudiced of magnates, had to admit that
it would not fold up, as they had first envisioned.
However, along came the present world conflict, and as its reper-
cussions touched all phases of life, it was inevitable that it should
affect baseball in more ways than merely draining their personnel.
Though the change has been gradual and may not have been regarded
with too keen an eye by sports fans, a great American tradition has been
broken-that is, a set time for all ball games to start.
In previous times, the games all started at three o'clock or there-
abouts. The only exception to this rule was in the case of double headers,
and they usually started an hour earlier. There were few changes in
this standard, and it wasn't even necessary to skim through the papers
for this information, as it was a foregone conclusion.
Baseball time was therefore established by custom, and that is
why we are rather perplexed as to what the schemes of life must be
for todays ball fans.
T HREE O'CLOCK seemed to be an ideal time to hold this event, for most
fans would get tired about this period of the day and they needed
some stimulus to arouse their waning spirits. It would also serve as a
good excuse to take a day off, especially if they were rationalizing with
Then too, the rabid fan would find no difficulty, such as an irate
wife, awaiting him at home, because a 3 o'clock game is over by 5, and
the ball addict would be at the table by supper time. And if he is shrewd,
he will have concocted a good excuse and will be completely exonerated
for his deed.
But, life must be very difficult for people now, regardless of where
they are. It is not unusual now to pick up a paper and read this sched-
ule: Cleveland at New York 4 p.m.; Detroit at Boston 6 p.m.; Phila-
delphia at Chicago 6 and 9 p.m.; St. Louis at Washington 6:10 and
8:45 p.m.
NOT ONLY are there night or twilight games, but on some days various
teams may even play in the morning. On the basis of this, it would
not be at all surprising if baseball would follow the trail set by movie
theatres and come up with midnight performances.
Just what alibis or excuses can now be used to fit these new
schedules is doubtful but maybe the war has not only hardened the
soldiers, and today's fans are so brave that they announce to their
boss or wife that they are going to the ball game.
A chance meeting between two former Northwestern athletes was
described in a letter from Ensign Don Smith, captain of the 1942 track
team who was an officer on an LCT boat that took part in an invasion. He
"I lost my ship in the invasion but was fortunate enough to run
across Lt. Don Clawson (football, basketball, track '42) who was acting
as a beach master when we landed."

Boston Trounces Detroit 15-5
Trout's Attempt for 15th Fails

"A rather ragged scrimmage," was
Coach Fritz Crisler's comment as
Michigan's gridders completed their'
fourth week of summer practice.
However Crisler did indicate that
some progress is being made. The
head mentor stated that in compari-
son to past Wolverine squads, the
present team is not improving as
rapidly as it should.
Yesterday's workout was possibly
the most rigorous of the summer
season. The tackling was hard on
both sides, and the Blue team com-
posed mostly of experienced person-
nel, pushed over four touchdowns
while holding the Whites scoreless.
The Whites threatened on several
Need To Improve Timing
Backfield coach Earl Martineau
said, "The backsneed plenty of work
to smooth out their timing." He
also mentioned that several men on
the White team looked promising but
refused to divulge any names until he
was more certain of their capabilities.
Martineau was quite enthused over
the improvement shown by Bill Cul-
ligan and Bill Wenzlau. Both men
have made great strides so far this
Martineau claims that Culligan
"with a lot of hard work can develop
into a great passer." Martineau was
likewise optimistic about Wenzlau's
running ability.
Eugene Derricotte, a freshman back
froM Defiance, Ohio, "is another pow-
erful runner," said Martineau but
injuries have plagued this Defiance
flash to a considerable extent.
In the forward wall, Line coach
Biggie Munn summed up the situa-
tion adequately when he stated,
"There are a lot of boys on this year's
line who are bunched closely together
insofar as playing ability is concern-
ed." Munn said, "It will be a very dif-
ficult task to make the final selec-
tions before the first game on Sept.
16." Munn concluded by saying, "A

most all positions in the line are
Freshmen Standouts
Four freshmen were singled out
by Munn as promising prospects,
They are George Burg, Roger Chia-
verini, Quentin Sickels, and Charles
Wahl. Chiaverini and Sickels are'
tackles, Burg is an inside guard, while
Wahl holds down the center berth.
Wahl has been laid up with an in-
jury the past two days, but is ex-
pected back Monday.
End coach Bennie Oosterbaan had
nothing new to say about his wing-
men except "that they were all com-
ing along nicely."
Yanks Beat Tribe
CLEVELAND, July 28-(AP)-Er-
nie Bonham hurled his sixth straight
victory, his eighth in all, as the New
York Yankees defeated the Cleveland
Indians, 13-7 today, to gain an even
split in their four-game series with
the tribesmen.

With a spectacular oil fire raging
only a few hundred yards away, Mi-
chigan football practice went right
on as if nothing had happened yes-
terday as the coaching staff followed
a "business as usual" policy.
When the first flames from an
overturned oil truck leapt high into
the air, proceedings were disrupted
only momentarily as both gridders
and mentors halted to gape and spec-
ulate on the cause and intensity of
the disaster. Then the squad settled
back down to work.
The flying tongues of orange-red
flames, couched in billowing clouds
of black smoke, were in plain sight
of the members of the team during
the afternoon's workout, but they
went quietly on about their business.
A few gridders, including fullback
Bob Wiese, appeared on the scene
shortly after the train-gasoline truck
crash occurred. In addition, several
Navy and Marine trainees rushed to
the scene from the Sports Building

wide open." nAl gi t igntng u

DETROIT,. July 28- (AP )-Cuffing
Paul (Dizzy) Trout from the mound
in the fifth inning, the Boston Red
Sox waltzed to a 15 to 5 victory over
the Detroit Tigers today, sweeping
an abbreviated three-game series and
shaving St. Louis' league lead to
three games.
Boston's belting outfield of Pete
Fox, Bob Johnson and George Met-
kovich had a field day at bat and
on the bases, combining for nine,
hits, seven runs scored and eight
batted in. Fox and Johnson each
had three hits.
Trout, trying for his 15th win of
the season, gave up eight hits and
nine runs in the 4 1/3 innings he
Emmett O'Neill, Boston righthand-
er, gave eight walks and nine hits
but breezed in for his third victory
against five defeats.
Fox, an ex-Tiger, hammered out a
triple and two doubles in his first
four times at bat, was a base-runner
five times and scored four runs.
Johnson had a double and two singles
and Metkovich a double and a single.
Every Red Sox player who came to

bat had at least one hit except lead-
off man Lou Finney and every one
scored at least one run.
Three Tiger hurlers were equally
unsuccessful. Trout, who had won
two decisions within the past week,
was pounded hard and got little
fielding support. Jake Mooty, who
took over in the fifth, advanced two
runners with a wild pitch to the first
batter he faced and gave four hits
and three runs in two frames. Zeb
Eaton, who toiled the last 2 2/3
innings, allowed three hits and three
Besides counting 15 runs on their
15 hits, the Red Sox left 11 men
stranded on the sacks. The three
Detroit pitchers walked eight.
Metkovich's single and Fox's tri-
ple, set up three first inning Boston,
runs but the Tigers got back two
in their half on Roger Cramer's pass,
Jim Outlaw's single and the first of
two straight doubles by Rudy York.
