Lennart Strand Runs Season's Fastest Mile;
Quinn Defeats MacMitchell for Second Place

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK, July 2-A few min-
utes after Herb McKenley of the
University of Illinois had bettered
the world record for 300 yards, Len-
nart Strand of Sweden ended his
present U.S. campaign by winning
the invitation mile at a streamlined
twilight track meet this evening at
Randalls Island Stadium.
Strand finished sixty yards in
front of Thomas Quinn of the New
York A.C., who was celebrating his
discharge today from the U.S. Navy.
The time was 4:09.
McKenley burst from his holes in
the 300 a full stride ahead of his

The Illini runner established a
world mark for the 440 yard run at
the Big Ten last month but was de-
feated by Harris at last week's Na-
tional A.A.U. festival in San An-

Leslie MacMitchell, one-time New
York University great, led through
the first quarter of the mile and then

Arnard Mayer of the New York

one hand and then with two before
trying their muscles with a 12-pound

In the latter event Mayer surpas-

Navy Discharges Birdsall

Coach Bill Barclay, Wolverine golf
mentor, declared yesterday that he
"felt pretty pleased" with the show-
ing of the Michigan linksmen in the
National Collegiates last week-end,
and particularly praised Dave Bar-
clay and Bill Courtright.
Dave carded the lowest Wolverine
score for the team play, an excellent
147, and went on to chalk up a 307
for the total 72 holes.
In addition to his low scores, Bar-
clay provided two of biggest high-
lights of the tourney as far as Michi-
gan was concerned. On the second
day of play he was the third Wolver-
ine golfer to tee off. When the first
two men had finished nine holes he
started with a great deal of pres-
sure resting on him because his team-
mates hadn't yet warmed into good
form and things looked a little gray.
Barclay proceeded to make the
Wolverinehpicture much brighter,
coming through with a cheering 72
for his eighteen holes. Coach Barclay
said that this exhibition was one of
the best examples of pressure-play-
ing he saw in the entire tourney.

Again, on the last day of the team
play, Barclay did some sparkling
pressure-playing. A rainstorm caught
him during the latter part of the
course, but when he came to the
eighteenth hole he was informed by

With the thought in his miid that a
tie rested on this final putt, he over-
came the pressure and sank it for
his 4.
Coach Barclay also cited an out-
standing performance by Courtright.
Courtright followed Barclay on the
second day of the play when the lat-
ter had come through with his 72 to
rally Michigan's hopes.
Knowing that it was up to him
to carry on the rally, he came back
from a nervous 41 for the first nine
holes to shoot the final nine in a
blistering 35 and finish. one under

In British Open
ST. ANDREWS, Scotland, July 2-
M r-Two rounds of qualifying play
in the British 'Open Golf Tournament
ended tonight with the favored Brit-
ish and American players still in the
field, but none burning up the courses
enough to single him out as "the man
to beat."
Four American professionals en-
ter the championship rounds to-
morrow with comfortable qualifying
totals and a showing so far that
labels them still a big threat to the
men from the British Empire.
Sam Snead scored* 74-75-149;
Johnny Bulla, 77-74--151; Lawson
Little, 76-75-151; and Joe Kirk-

the two courses over which the qual-
ifying rounds were played is 73.

By The Associated Press
DETROIT, July 2-The Chicago
White Sox cracked a Briggs Stadium
jinx today by slugging out 16 hits off
four Detroit pitchers to nose out the
Tigers 8 to 7 for their first victory
here this season.
Hank Greenberg clouted his 20th
home run with a man on base in
the first inning and drove in four
runs with three hits but committed
a costly error that led to what ulti-
mately was Chicago's winning run in
the seventh.
The Sox piled up a 7-2 margin in
the first four innings with the aid
of Taft Wright's two-run homer off
Tommy Bridges and counted an un-
earned run off Johnny Gorsica in
the seventh on Greenberg's error and
successive hits by Wally Moses and
Luke Appling.
Jimmy Bloodworth homered in
the fourth for Detroit with the bases

Enlists in Army'
Bob Thomason, one of Track
Coach Ken Doherty's ace distance
men, joined the Army June 28th, it
was learned today.
He had enlisted several weeks ago
but was not called to report until
he had finished the term. Thomason
signed for an eighteen month period
of enlistment.
The former thinclad has been a
mainstay of Michigan's track teams
for the past two years. He came to
the Wolverines after a brilliant prep
school career in Asbury Park, N.J.,
and, due to wartime rules, became
the youngest man ever to run for the
varsity. He was seventeen during his
first year, 1945.
Thomason helped Michigan edge
out Illinois for the indoor crown in
1945 with a fourth in the half-mile
and a tie for third in the mile. That
was the week-end when Wolverine
runners slammed all five places in
the latter event for the first time in
track history.
In the outdoor conference meet
of the same year, Thomason finished
fourth in the mile behind the Hume
twins and Walter Fairervis. He went
on to grab a fifth in the National
This past season Thomason took
third in the indoor conference mile,
finishing just seven yards behind
Ohio's Bill Clifford, the winner, and
just a step behind Bob Hume.

Michigan would win the champion-
ship, while a 4 would furnish a tie. It
turned out that his teammates had
miscalculated but Dave didn't know
it until after the play was over.
He landed in a sand trap on his
second shot, but recovered beauti-
fully to blast his way out and land
on the green three feet from the cup.
