I"M SPOU[FOLIO

By IRWIN ZUCKER
Michigan's Matt Mann, who has
developed more Olympic swim-
mers than any other living coach,
will send 10 Wolverine mermen
into this year's National AAU
Outdoor swimming and diving
championships, a three-day carni-
val starting tomorrow afternoon
at Tyler, Tex.
Seven of the group will fly to
Honolulu following the AAU meet
for a series of six events in the
Islands during the latter part of
August. They will return to the
states on September 2.
Pre-Olympic Event
Topnorrow's AAU affair, which
will give sport fans a clear 'idea
of our prospects for next year's
Olympic squad, will attract an im-
pressive field of 150 splashers.
Harry Holiday, Michigan's 1948
tank captain, is expected to re-
tain his 110-meter backstroke title
and many believe he may repeat
in the 300-meter medley also, for
he was in poor health when Jo-
seph Verdeur of the Philadelphia
Turners defeated him for the in-
door 300-yard honors last spring,
World Record Holders
The world record Wolverine trio
of Holiday, breaststroker Bob Sohl,
and freestyler Dick Weinberg ap-
pears to have a safe edge in the
300-meter medley relay, and Ohio
State is favored for the 800-meter
reaas the champion team of
Hawaii University has suffered
from changes and is no longer
rated formidable.
Three To Return
Other Wolverine entrees include
Matt Mann III, son of the coach,
400, 800, and 1,500 meters; Gus
Stager, 400-meter freestyle; Char-
lie Voss, individual relay; and Gil
Evans, diving.

Backstrokers Arthur Johnson
and Jay Sanford and George Ol-
sen, 1,500 meter, will return after
the Texas contests.
Evans, who placed fifth in last
summer's 3 -pneter springboard
event, may decide at the last min-
ute to drop out of this year's com-
petition, if AAU physicians deem
it necessary. The Wolverine div-
ing ace, intent upon breaking up
Ohio State's springboard dynasty,
suffered a severe bruised right foot
last week while training at -the
Detroit Boat Club, and has riot re-
sponded satisfactorily to early
treatments.

Indians Trounce
Bosox by 13-7
By The Associated Press
Yogi Berra and fireman Joe
Page teamed up on Detroit yes-
terday to give the New York Yan-
kees a second straight win over
the Tigers, 8-5. Berra's grand
slam homer in the third gave the
Yanks a comfortable early lead
and Page came on to protect it
when Allie Reynolds wilted in the
fourth inning.
The weak-hitting Tigers were
off running when Dick Wakefield
banged his seventh hom'er, a 450-
foot drive into the Yankee bull
pen in right field, in the first inn-
ing. Two more came home in the
second on two walks and Dizzy
Trout's double to deep center.
Berra then took matters in
hand in the Yankee third. Suc-
cessive singles by Phil Rizzuto,
Reynolds and George Stirnweiss
produced one score. Tommy Hen-
rich walked and Berra sent Trout
to a cool shower by blasting his
tenth homer into the right field
bullpen clearing the sacks.,
It was the second time the Yogi
had pulled the grand slam trick,
both against the Bengals. He had
hit one off Al Benton June 22.
Scoring six times in the open-
ing inning and rollicking to seven
more runs in the sixth, the Cleve-
land Indians whipped the Boston
Red Sox, 13-7. The defeat, second'

in two days administered by the
Indians, dropped the second place
Sox 111/2 games in back of the
Yankees.
Senators Lose
St. Louis pushed over an un-
earned run in the 11th inning to
defeat Washington, 2 to 1. The
Browns produced the winning run
when third baseman Eddie Yost
fumbled Vernon Stephens' ground-
er, enabling Paul Lehner to score
from third.
Frank Papish's four hit pitch-
ing and P,udy York's 11th home
run of the season sparked the Chi-
cago White Sox to a 3 to 2 victory
over hard luck Jesse Flores and
the Philadelphia Athletics.
* * *
Ewell Blackwell's string of con-
secutive victories was snapped at
16 yesterday by the New York
Giants who came from behind to
nip Cincinnati's lanky sidearm
artist in the 10th inning with a
5-4 defeat, his third of the season.
The Reds' lean righthander thus
fell three short of the all-time
major league mark of 19 set by the
Giants' Rube Marquard in 1912,
in his dazzling sophomore win
streak.
Blackwell was within two outs
of his 17th straight triumph in the
ninth when. Willard Marshall tied
the score with his 27th home run
to the right field bleachers with
nobody on base.
In the tenth Buddy Blattner
led off with a walk and was bunt-

ed over to second by relief pitcher
Monty Kennedy. After Bill Rig-
ney grounded out, , Buddy Kerr
singled to center scoring Blattner
with the winning run.
The Philadelphia Phillies won
9-2 from the Cubs, combing three
Chicago pitchers for 11 hits and
their second triumph in 15 ap-
pearances against the Bruins.
Johnny Wyrostek's three-run
homer in the first inning gave
Philadelphia a lead which Blix
Donnelly preserved by scattering
10 Cub hits. It was Donnelly's first
victory of the year.
Smashing out four home runs,
the Boston Braves bounced back
to defeat the Pittsburgh Pirates,
8-5, in the second game of a twin
bill today. The Bucs, aided by
Billy Cox's eighth circuit clout of
the season, took the opener, 5-3.

Chuck Menninger, a dark-
horse in the Intramural summer
golf tournament, came up with
the surprise of the tourney yes-
terday when he defeated medal-
ist champion, Jerome Weiler, 4
and 3 to walk off with the
match play crown.
Menninger, who placed third
behind Weiler in the medal event
two weeks ago, had things pretty
much his own way as he won the
match title by a surprisingly de-
cisive margin.
Winners in three other flights
in the tourney have not yet been
decided.
Dick Preston and Bob Campeau
will fight it out for the toga in
the second flight, while Vern Con-
nell and Bob Trease will meet in
'the third grouping. Art Mier is
the only man to reach the finals
thus far in the fourth flight.

According to tournament di-
rector, Newt Loken, if time per-
mits the flight champions will
meet in a final medal round to
decide the All-Campus links
king.
$ * *
Fred Wellington advanced to
the finals in the I-M singles ten-
nis tourney over the week-end by
defeating Albert Roland 6-4, 5-7,
8-6. By virtue of his victory, Well-
ington qualified to meet the win-
ner of the Emery Freeman-Bill
Culver match for the singles
crown.
In doubles competition, Cul-
ver and Freeman will square
off against Rasin Tek and Toni
Tiverius in the championship
round on the Ferry Field courts
next Tuesday.

How proud are you of your
golfing ability?
If you think you can smack
that white pellet 150 yards into
the cup on one shot, 'you'll have
a chance to prove yourself Mon-
day, Aug. 4, when the Ann Arbor
Optimist Club will hold a hole-
in-one tournament ,on the 16th
hole of the Municipal Golf Course
here in Ann Arbor.
By way of a "warmup," Wol-
verine golf coach Bert Katzen-
meyer will give a half-hour dem-
onstration at 11 a.m. tomorrow
of just what it takes to score an
ace (or come close), on the same
16th hole at the Municipal
Links.

ion Gus Lesnevich, the exception

ers, banged out a ten-round upset
decision victory over Tami Maur-
iello, the round man from the
Bronx, in Ebbets Field tonight.
The blond belter from Cliff-
side, N.J., twice staggered Mauri-
ello- -once -in the second with right
hands and again in the sixth with
hooks-and in. the seventh he
buckled Tan 's knees with a right
cross that all lut floored th
bigger man.
The decision was uranimous in
'Lesnevich's favor. The Associated
Press score card gave ex-sailorj
Gus six rounds and Mauriello four,
with Gus in the lead from the first
heat on.

Chairman Arthur Renzy of the
Optimist Club's tournament has
invited the public to come out and
pick up a few, pre-tournament
pointers on the art from the form-
er Michigan amateur champ.
Monday's contest will start at
7 a.m. and last until dark. All
it takes to enter is one dollar
and three golf balls as an entry
fee.
Each contestant gets three
shots, and each shot will be mea-
mured to within an eighth of an
;nch by a specially constructed
measuring device. Each contest-
ant's best shot will be counted,
thus giving the lucky novice as
much of a chance as the experien-
ced pro. The ball must land on
the green in order to be eligible
for a prize.
Entry is unlimited, and the
contestant may use any club
he chooses. University students
as eligible to enter, and the con-
test will have two divisions -
men's and women's.I
About 400dollars in prizes do-
nated by local merchants will be
offered, with 25 of them in the
men's division, and 10 in the
women's section. Five additional
surprise prizes will be awarded.
The men's prizes range from a
$70 tailored suit to a $2.50 gift
certificate, while the women will
compete for gifts starting with
stationery and running up to a
$50 silver service set.

By WHITNEY MARTIN
NEW YORK, July 30-(W)-If
you use a little imagination you
might detect the current sports
wheel turning back to the gaudy
20's. You won't find the same
names, except in teams, and right
now the individualsahaven't reach-
ed the glorified stage the heroes
of the Golden Era attained, but
the possibilities of a duplication
are there nevertheless.
In team sports, Note Dame in
football and the Yankees in base-
ball were the high-riders in the
20's. The same two teams today
are the front runners, and promise
to be for some time to cime.
At present we have no Babe
Ruth, or Bobby Jones, or Bill
Tilden to dominate their fields,
and, from the standpoint of
both performance and color, we
never may have. Their names
are safe in their own niches in
the sports hall of fame, regard-
less of the stars of the present
and future.
But nobody realized then the
true greatness of the sports heroes,
their greatness grows in retro-
spect.
That the public is even more
avid in its interest in sports to-
day is indicated by the record-
breaking crowds at ball games. We
have no tremendous fight gates,
but we would have if there was
any competition for Joe Louis,who
dominates that field even more
than Dempsey dominated it un-
til his meeting with Gene Tun-
ney.
We have no Tilden or Helen
Wills for sheer color, but Jack
Kramer might conceivably be-
come a really great figure in
tennis, and Pauline Betz, before
turning pro, seemed to be in :
class of her own in the women's
amateur field.
We don't think that anyone ever
will duplicate Bobby Jones' feat
of winning the four major golf
tournaments in one year, but
Frank Stranahar, could become
one of the really amateur golf
greats. Babe Didrikson stands out

over the women's golf field like a
beacon.
We'll never have another Babe
Ruth, but young fellows coming
up might conceivably make
quite as big a splurge. Even Ted
Williams just reaching his peak
when the war intervened, might
come back to be the Mr. Big.
And, as for pitchers, Ewell
Blackwell stacks up with any of
the chuckers of the first Gold-
en Era.
It took four or five years after
World War I for the sports wheel
to really start spinning at a dizzy
pace, and, with. only two years
gone since the end of the World
War II, we have a pretty good
start toward another such dizzy
whirl.
