Michigan's football squad, pursu-
ing its head coach "Fritz" Crisler's
strategy of offensive ball, continued
running through comprehensive
scrimmage and passing drills as the
second week of 1945 spring grid prac-
tice progressed.
After an hour of group drill, lines,
backs and ends of the "Blue" squad
combined in a heated scrimmage
against the under-dog "Whites." Cap-
tain Joe Ponsetto, only returning
man from last season's first eleven
took over his quarterback position,
handling it with practiced ability.
Munn Drills Linemen
Coach "Biggie" Munn put his line-
men through the paces in bodily con-
tact work previous to the scrim-
mage. In keeping with the order of
the day the candidates for first string
forward wall positions were drilled in
offensive passing tactics.
Particularly noticeable were the
offensive guards, who pulled out of
the line to check the on-rushing de-
fensive ends. In this capacity Dom-
inic Tomasi, Wolverine baseball star,
distinguished himself. The 17-year-
old freshman continually got off to
a fast start and hit the opposing end
with everything he had.

Horse racing suffered a new blow to-

transportation of racing and show

Sarazen Still Good
And these men are by no means out
of the running. Let us look at Gene
Sarazen. Even though he was in
his prime about l5 years ago he still
plays a mean game of golf. Upon
entering this year's PGA he shot
a first round of 71. A lot of pros who
think themselves pumpkins in this
game would like to record a com-
parable first round total.
In addition, Sarazen still padks the
galleries just as he used to in the
days of Jones and Hagen. This was
exemplified in his first-round play at
the PGA this year.
Shute Won PGA
Another golfing great was Denny
Shute. In 1936 and 1937 he won the
PGA and previous to this, in 1933,
he went to England to take the Brit-
ish Open. This year, after two years
of retirement, Shute decided to try
his hand at the Professional Golf
Association's crown again, and carded

By BILL MULLENDORE, Daily Sports Editor
THE ANNUAL Major League All-Star game was cancelled this year by
the ODT for reasons of transportation, and in a way the cancellation
comes as a welcome relief. Billed as a test of supremacy between the two
,eagues, it never amounted to much more than a lot of ballyhoo and a
good measure of ill feeling.
Anyone in his senses must realize that a single game can prove
nothing more than that on a particular day one team was better, or t1
luckier, than the other. The notion that picked squads from the
American and National League can, in one encounter, prove the super-
iority of one or the other is sheer nonsense.3
In recent years, students of the game have claimed that the World's
Series is an unfair test, owing to its brevity. Yet, the World's Series is a1
seven-game series. And if the supremacy of one team over another cannot
be decided in seven games, by what stretch of the imagination can it be
decided in one? The answer is obvious. It can't.
Yet the promoters of the All-Star classic have tried to build it up into
a yearly trial by battle which shall decide conclusively whether the Ameri-
can or the National League plays the better baseball. And fans, in large
measure, have swallowed the "dream game' angle, hook, line, and sinker.
And so we have the somewhat silly spectacle of two teams composed of
sundry individual stars selected by the managers, men who have never
played together before and probably never will again, "proving" that one
loop is stronger than the other.
We do not contend that the idea of an All-Star game is, in itself, a
bad one. Viewed in its proper perspective and undertaken with the
proper emphasis, it could with certain revisions of procedure serve a
useful end. But we do contend that the game has been perverted into
something it very definitely is not.
In the first place, the only possible excuse for staging such a spectacle
is for the appreciation of the fans. The ball players themselves get noth-
ing out of it, except perhaps a little glory, and the teams have something
to lose in possible injuries. Therefore, an effort should be made to give
the game to the fans.
THIS WOULD INVOLVE two things. First of all, choice of the players
should rest with the people who support the teams. At one time in
the history of the contest, the fans did vote for the squad members, but
this function was usurped from them by the managers, who probably are
more qualified to make the selections if such a serious thing as league
supremacy is at stake. But with league supremacy a side-issue, the fans
should see the players they want to see, not those whom the managers think
they want to see.
Secondly, every effort should be made to allow as many persons 'as
possible to view the stars in action. The fans should choose them, and
the fans should have a chance to see their choices. The present Major
League schedules provide for a sufficient number of open dates to allow
perhaps a week's layoff in mid-season, during which the two all-star
squads could make the circuit of the Major League cities, appearing
for one day in each. Squads large enough to permit the scheduling
of doubleheaders at each stop could be selected in order to give everyone
his money's worth.
With the accomplishment of these reforms, the All-Star game, or All-I
Star series, would become what it should be--a parade of the fans'f
choices as the best talent in the Majors. It would allow the fans to see
in action the cream of .the current baseball crop, players from all teams
in both leagues, many of whom they would never ordinarily witness on
the field. Furthermore, the notion of contention for a mythical league
championship should be abolished. Granted that a series of games would
come closer to establishing a champion than a single encounter, the series
could never be regarded as conclusive. It would merely be a treat to the
fans, those people who make professional baseball possible and who certainly
deserve something in return.
