by Feller's doubtful status in Tues-

lineup, as voted by the fans, wlil
be George McQuinn, New York,

Major League
Roundup
By The Associated Press
Throttling a late rally, Hal New-
houser hurled the Detroit Tigers,
to a 6-5 victory over the Cleve-
land Indians last night for hisE
ninth win of the year.
R i g h t h a n d e r Allie Reynold
pitched a five-hitter and Joe Di-
maggio hit his tenth home run as
the New York Yankees defeated
the Washington Senators last
night, 8-1. The victory, coupled
with Boston's 7-6 loss to the Phil-
adelphia A's, increased the New
Yorker's lead in the American
league to six and one-half games.
Homers by Jeff Heath and Walt
Judnich helped the Brownies to
a 7 to 1 .victory over the Chicago
White Sox.

The Brooklyn Dodgers went in-
to first place in the National
League race by beating New York,
11-3, last night at Ebbets Field
as the Boston Braves dropped a
6-5 decision to the Phillies:

Dodgers Grid
Profit-Sharing
Plan In Effect
BROOKLYN, July 2 - (/P) -1
The Brooklyn Dodger profession-
al football club, an unprofitable
proposition last fall, announced
today it had in operation a profit
sharing plan calculated to get "50
per cent more effort" out of the
players.
Under the proposal announced
by co-owner William D. Cox, each
employe of the organization con-
tributes up to $200 annually from
his salary, and the Dodgers put
in up to 35 per cent of their pro-
fits after the pattern of the "Jos-
lyn Plan" started in 1919 by The
Joslyn Manufacturing and Supply1
Co., of Chicago. The profit shar-;
ing is believed to be the first 'of
its kind in organized sports. +
Under the plan, which was ap-
proved unanimously by the play-
ers last September, participants
have a fully vested interest in
their share in the fund after five
years participation in it.

I-M S PORTFOLIO

The curtain will be raised on
the intramural summer softball
season next Monday, July 7, at
South Ferry Field.
According to Chuck Dailey,
who is in charge of the summer
schedule, 33 teams will compete
in the race for Michigan's hot-
weather diamond crown. The
squads have been split into a
residence hall league of nine
teams, an independent league
of ten squads, and two fratern-
itf combinations of seven squads
each.Z
The teams in each league willr
battle through a round-robin
schedule, and at the conclusion
of the season's play the eight top!
outfits will clash in an All-Campus
tourney to determine who shall
reign supreme as Michigan's dia-
mond kingpins. Each member of
the All-Campus championship
squad will receive an individual
award.
A bit of big league flavor has
been added to the schedule by
the announcement that there
will be a post-season All-Star
game between the residence hall
and fraternity leagues. The
"glitter boys" will be selected
by team managers at the end of
the season.
Play. will begin every day at
5:15 p.m.. with the residence halls
and one fraternity league squar-
ing off on Mondays and Wednes-
days, while the independents and
the other fraternity combine will
play on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Complete schedules have been
mailed to all team managers.
The 1-M summer basketball
schedule is in the process of
being drawn up, and it will be

posted on the main bulletin
board in the Sports Building
as soon as possible.
The cagers will open play Mon-
day, July 7, and there will be two
games daily, at 4 and 5 p.m., dur-
ing the remainder of the schedule.
* * *
The Sports Building will be
closed on Friday, July 4. Conse-
quently there will be no "open
house" that evening.
Anyone interested in officiating
I-M softball or basketball games
during the summer session should
report to they main office in the
Sports Building at once.

Eastern Net
Quarter-Finals
As the Eastern Intercollegiate
tennis tournament in Montclair,
N.J. moved into the quarter-fin-
als, Fred Otto, University of Mich-
igans No. 2 man on the '47 var-
sity squad, became the lone Wol-
verine hope, when he came from
behind yesterday to trounce Bruce
Johnson of Miami, 6-8, 6-0, 6-2.
Otto's teammates bowed out in
earlier matches. The 1947 Wolver-
in captain, Bill Mikulich, was
eliminated just before gaining the
round of 8 by Yale's John Moses,
6-8, 8-6, 6-2, and Michigan's An-
dy Paton, who was seeded 11th in
the tourney fell before Robert
Jack of Vermont.
In the opening round of the
men's doubles yesterday, Otto and
Paton ran into a Yale duo, Linton
Baldwin and Jack Geller, and eked
out a 6-3, 7-5 victory.
