Cagers Rest After

LIKE OLD TIMES-Bob Feller (left), former Cleveland Indian ace
hurler, talks things over with his catcher, Walker Cooper, ex-Cardinal
mainstay, before the formidable battery goes into action for the Great
Lakes Naval Training {Station nine. In recent games Feller pitched a
no hitter against the Ford All-Stars of Dearborn, and last week, he
humbled the Chicago Cubs, giving up only three hits as the Sailors
beat the National League leaders, 1-0.
Illinois r Coach Bans Use
Of Players' Photos on Poster

When Michigan's gridders invade
Champaign Oct. 27 for their tussle
with the Illini, they will notice one
small difference from the past visits
in the Illinois stronghold.
The football posters which are dis-
played 'at. Champaign each year will
not carry the traditional pictures of
individuals, with the exception of
Head Coach Ray Eliot, who is re-
sponsible for the sudden switch in
advertising policy.
Individual Shots Eliminated
Since Eliot came to Illinois three
seasons agoridisaster has struck at
the Illini gridders through the men
who were pictured on the annual
poster. Eliot, not wishing to tempt
the gods again, has ordered that the
1945 poster show a photo-montage
of typical Illinois scenes under a
huge orange block "I"- and that
football players be "left out of the
Eliot is personally not skeptical of
the jinx, as he is allowing his own
picture to be used on the poster. He
is taking no chances, however, stat-
ing that he is being "darned careful"
during the season - just in case.
Ends Claimed by Services
In 1942, the poster showed Capt.
Jimmy Smith, Joe Astroth and Bob
Wilson, and mishaps dogged these
three men all year. Smith suffered
a leg injury early in the season and
was far below par on the gridiron,
while Astroth could be used but lit-
tle and Wilson, who played guard,
was also nursing a bad leg.
An action shot of Ray Grierson,
Wes Tregoning and Bob Gerometta.
decorated the 1943 poster. All were
prospective ends in pre-season prac-
tice, but by the first game, all were
called into the service, leaving their
coach frantically searching for more
flanking talent.
Two Eddies Doomed
Eddie Bray and Eddie McGovern

were shown on last year's poster in
a dressing room scene. Sure enough,
by the time the first game rolled
around, McGovern was working in
a war plant far from the Illinois
campus. Coach Eliot had hope for
McGovern, but they were all in vain,
for the second Eddie sustained an
injured knee and spent most of the
season on the bench.
Michigan, of course, wishes no bad
luck to the Illini. When Oct. 27 rolls
around, Coach H. O. (Fritz) Crisler
and Co. would like' to meet the Illi-
nois team at the peak of their physi-
can and mental abilities.

Majors to Alter
Waiver Rule
Borowy Deal Angers
Washington Owner
WASHINGTON, July' 28 -(P)-
Clark Griffith today formally re-
quested the Major Leagues to take
immediate action on changing the
present waiver rule, as a direct re-
sult of the "Hank" Borowy case.
Chandler said that he will "find
out the facts" to see if "any subter-
fuge was involved" for his "personal
His study will not be in the form
of an official investigation, however,
he told a reporter.'
Borowy, star pitcher of the New
York Yankees, was sold yesterday to
the Chicago Cubs of the National
League for an estimated $100,000 and
several players, after all American
League clubs had waived on him.
Griffith then led criticism of the
deal. He said it was "detrimental to'
the welfare of the (American)
league;" that the waiver rule was
"lousy anyway," and criticized Larry
MacPhail, Yankee Head, saying Mac-
Phail should be "fairer" to the Amer-
ica.n League.
Under the existing rule, waivers
may be asked on a player any num-
ber of times, Griffith said, adding
that club owners "don't claim tsar
players because you know you're not
going to get them . . they'll be with-

Michigan Open
To Start Week
From Today
Sam Byrd and Claude
Harmon Are Favored
jn 72-Hole Tourney -
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich, July 28-
()-The Michigan Open Golf Cham-
pionship, whittled to a 54-hole event
for two years because of the war, re-
turns to its full 72-hole status here
next week with a record field in pros-
pect for the three-day 1945 scramble
opening Friday at Cascade Hills
Country Club.
Generally considered as the stars
to beat for the biggest slice of
$2,300 in war bonds are defending
champion Sam Byrd, the hard-hit-
ting Plum Hollow Golf Club pro
from Detroit, and Claude Harmon,
pro at Detroit's Lochmoor Country
Club, whose game never was better
than now.
Byrd, who swept both the Michi-
gan Open and State PGA titles in
1944, winning the Open with a 54-
hole medal score of 208, five under
par, at Orchard Lake Country Club,
recently bowed to Byron Nelson in
the championship final of the Na-
tional PGA tourney at Dayton, Ohio.
Harmon, who lost to Nelson in
the semi-finals of the Dayton af-
fair, was runner-up in the Michi-
gan Open in both 1943 and 1944,
losing to Al Watrous in a playoff"
two years ago and bowing to Byrd
by six strokes last summer.
Watrous, a five-time winner of the
State Open since 1926, also figures
to be a threat, as does Ed Furgo of
Detroit, a newcomer to the profes-
sional ranks who tied Chuck Kocsis
of Detroit for amateur laurels in the
1944 Open with a 215 total.
Advance entries for the 1945 State
Open indicate the starting field will
be considerably higher than last
year's 76.
Among the State's top pros al-
ready entered are Frank Walsh of
Red Run, Detroit; Chick Rutan,
Birmingham Country Club; Joe
Belfore, Detroit Country Club; Lee
Kosten, Muskegon; Tommy Shan-
non, Orchard Lake; Ole Clark,
Lansing; Jack Winney, Detroit;
and Nick Webber of Grand Rapids'
Highlands Country Club.
Other well-known Michigan golf-
ers who are entered include Eldon
Briggs of Ionia; Dave Ward of Sagi-
naw, a former state amateur cham-
pion; Dick Reinsma of Kalamazoo;
Tommy Sheehan, runner-up to Gib
Sellers in the 1941 State Open here;
E. W. Harbert of Battle Creek, father
of the 1942 Michigan Open Champ,
Melvin (Chick) Harbert; and a
Grand Rapids amateur contingent
headed by Jack Sharp, Harold Brink,
C. J. Farley, Hermie Miller and Eddie
Maurie Wells, veteran pro at Cas-
cade Hills and official host for the
1945 State Open, indicated that a 72-
hole score of 280 probably would be
good enough to take down the top
prize. Harbert's 269 in 1942 is the
72-hole record for the event.
Single 18-hole rounds are scheduled
for Friday and Saturday with a 36-
hole windup Sunday.
ImM Managers
Hold Meeting
Four Leagues Drawn
Up From 16 Teams
Rules, regulations, and eligibility
were the topics discussed at a meet-
ing of the softball managers Friday
at the Intra-Mural Sports Building.

The schedule for the league, which
now contains fifteen teams with a
sixteenth team in the offing, will be
released sometime early next week.
Included in the league are the Resi-
dence Hall teams, fraternity teams,
service teams, and general indepen-
dent teams.
In competition between the four
Residence Halls, Wenley seems to
have taken the lead with two victo-
ries and no defeats. Fletcher Hall
comes next, having dropped a 2-0
game to Wenley and winning a 14-5
decision over Allen-Rumsey.
In regard fo the other sports which
were under consideration for summer
competition, it seems that neither
tennis nor golf will have tournaments
this summer, since the entries have
not been in sufficient quantity to
warrant such events.

By BILL MULLENDORE, Daily Sports Editor
EDITOR'S NOTE: This column was written by Mary Lu Heath, Sports Night Editor.
The cult of fishermen has, we understand, grown by leaps and bounds
since the days of Izaak Walton and his "Compleat Angler," and we
suspect that members of The Cult could be found right here on campus.
Scholastic pursuits are all well and good, but a little relaxation is a
universal "must" on summer schedules.
For those undergraduate anglers who, far from home and mother,
miss their local fishing spots, we here append a summary of lakes
within the immediate vicinity of Ann Arbor which are productive of
fish. Dreams of Northern Michigan angling possibilities have no
doubt been haunting the undergraduate fisherman, but we hastily
assure him that local possibilities are also excellent.
Our informant is Prof. D. H. Haines of the University journalism de-
partment, an indefatigable angler during the summer. Prof. Haines, who
is an author, is a raconteur of fabulous anecdotes in the best tradition
of fishermen.
His choice as the best fishing site within a 25-mile radius of Ann
Arbor, is Whitmore Lake, which can be reached by traveling 10 miles
north on U. S. 23. At Whitmore, states Prof. Haines, nearly every
variety common to this section of Michigan is available, including panfish,
bass, northern pike, and bullheads. In fact, any of the lakes on U. S.
23 north of the intersection with route 16 are good for some takes.
Another excellent site is Four-Mile Lake, where bass and panfish
are numerous. The lake is between Dexter and Chelsea, and can be
reached by taking U. S. 12 to the Lima Center Road. The lake is four
miles north of the main stem.
Pleasant Lake is 16 miles southwest of Ann Arbor. It can be reached
by taking the Saline Road south to the first blinker light and then turning
right and continuing for 10 miles. Again the common varieties can be
taken in this lake.
The only other spot for panfish, bass, etc., is the Huron River, where
fishing is best near Barton Pond. Boat liveries are adjacent to nearly all
the lakes mentioned.-
Trout-fishing, Prof. Haines points out, is not common in the imme-
diate vicinity of Ann Arbor, and the only place nearby where trout can
be caught is at Paint Creek. This spot can be reached by traveling
south on U. S. 23 to Textile Road and turtling left. The Creek is on
this road, but fishing is only permissable on the left-hand side, as the
other side is posted.
At present, the fish are biting, Prof. Haines reports, but conditions
were not so favorable two weeks ago. In fact, the aquatic acrobats were
extremely elusive during the early part of the season. And when a fish
gets choosy, not even caviar (fish eggs) is an effective bait.

Days of Drill
Number of Hoopsters
Is Cut by Thirty-Three
Barclay Sees Promise In Squads Work
To Date; Selbo Is Outstanding Candidate
Basketball practice was temporarily postponed yesterday, and will not
be resumed until Aug. 14, when Assistant Coach Bill Barclay will return
from his vacation.
The team has practiced for two weeks without a let up, and in this
time Coach Barclay has already cut 33 men from the squad. Barclay said
'that there will be an additional cut tomorrow, when the final group of
candidates will be announced.
For the most part, practices consist of scrimmages between two
squads chosen at random from the candidates present. These scrimmages

last for 10 minutes, until the coach -
chooses two more teams to go in and
scrimmage. This rotation continues
until all the men present have had a
chance to play.
Coach Sees Promise
Although it is too early to predict
what kind of team we will have,
Coach Barclay said that the men
looked fairly good and that he no-
ticed many prospective hoopsters who,
with some intensive training, could
turn into good ball handlers.
Outstanding candidate to date is
Western Michigan veteran Glenn
Selbo. Selbo plays a very good de-
fensive game, is fast on breaks, makes
spectacular lay-up shots, and is al-
ways very alert during scrimmages.
Varsity To Be Chosen.
The new list which will be posted
tomorrow will include the names of
the men who will form the varsity
basketball team. However, the team
will be supplemented with basketball
candidates who are now attending
football drills.
Coach Barclay said yesterday,
"Basketball practice is now closed
to tryouts. The team will again hold
tryout drills next summer, when en-
tering freshmen who come in this
fall and those men who did not try
out this summer will get a chance to
show their basketball abilities."
From now on, drills will consist of
offensive and defensive maneuvers,
and a great deal of attention will be
given to basket shooting technique.

Bob Feller
Still Keeps
Skll of Old.
It seems that Bob Feller is going
great guns out at the U. S. Naval
Station at Great Lakes, Illinois.
He has, in the not too distant past,
pitched a no-hitter against the Ford
All-Stars and a three-hitter against
the Chicago Cubs. This latest vic-
tory is no mean accomplishment, for
although he has a good team behind
him it is not of Major League caliber.
Among those on the Great Lakes
nine are Walker Cooper, brother of
Mort Cooper of the Boston Braves,
and Pinky Higgins of the Detroit
Tigers. Cooper caught for the St.
Louis Cardinals at the beginning of
the season and Higgins played third
base for the Tigers last season.
Displays Old Form
The Associated Press dispatch
which reported the victory over the
Cubs stated "Bob Feller displayed his
old form on the mound." Feller has
been in the Navy for about three
years, having gone into the service
sometime in 1942.
Feller, during his slay with the
Cleveland Indians in the American
League, was called by many the best
pitcher in the Majors in quite some
time. Never to be forgotten was his
no-hitter pitched on an opening day
against the Chicago White Sox. Nor
will many Detroit fans forget the
night in Cleveland when Feller
struck out 18 men for aMajor League
record that still stands.
The Chicago Cubs, at this present
time, are leading the National League
by five full games over the second-
place St. Louis Cards. They have
won 55 and lost only 32 for a per-
centage of .632. So, pitching three-
hit ball against the National League's
best team seems to be one of the
better pitching feats of the year.
Strikes Out Two
To give an example of the form
that Feller showed, in the seventh
inning of the Chicago game, big Bill
Nicholson and Phil Cavarretta both
walked. Then Walker Cooper made
an error and the bases were loaded
with only one out. At this time Fel-
ler came through in his old style. He
fanned Ed Sauer and DeweyWilliamn
to end the inning.

16 Year-Old
Ace Takes 7th
Straight Match
DETROIT, July 28-(AP)-Herbie
Flam, 16-year-old, Beverly Hills,
Calif., high school sensation, today
won his seventh successive tennis
championship this year by whipping
his doubles partner, Hugh Stewart
of Los Angeles, 6-2, 6-3, 6-4, in the
finals of the Western Junior Tour-
nament at Cranbrook School.
Flam, whose top achievements have
been his triumphs in the National
Interscholastic and Eastern Junior
Championships, lost only one set in
wading through six straight matches
to the western crown. He has not
been defeated this year.
Richard Mouledous, 15-year-old
New Orleans youth, seeded first in
the boys division, continued his
straight-set romp by taking the West-
ern Boys title with an easy 6-1, 6-1
verdict over Jack Turpin of Dallas,

New York 2-8. Philadelphia 1-2.
Chicago 8, Cincinnati 3.
Brooklyn 2, Boston 1.
