SPORTSCRIBBLES
By ARCHIE PARSONS
A FTR T_E CITY OF DETROIT made such a loud, if unsuccessful
bid to hold the 1952 Olympic Games there, it was interesting to note
that they did not bother to bid for the 1948 Olympic tryouts to be held
nexi July:
Perhaps the city fathers were sincere in their desire to play
1 ost to the '52 games, ht the pssibility is strong that they were
mwre interested in the business end of the Games than in estab-
ishing the Motor City as one of the citadels of the amateur ath-
leic world. In fact, it is this writer's belief that one of the main
reasons they failed in their bid for the Olympics was that Detroit,
despite its bowling leagues and sandlot baseball, has always been
lkown as a home of professional sports. Like the auto industry,
Sports is strictly "big business" to the city.
At any rate, if tie city really was interested in obtaining the
Games, it would have been advisable for them to bid for next year's
Tryouts, which, while not a money-making enterprise, would be some
indication of Detroit's sincere interest in the furtherance of -Olympic'
athlctPis,. After ~ending a plane-load of officials to Stockholm in quest
of the Games, they just semed to forget the Olympics ever existed.
H1lE LOGICAL ANSWER to this is that the city has no facilities to
liojd Tryouts, and could not construct them on such short notice.
The pitiful conditions under which the city high school track champ-
ionships are held is proof of this--conditions so bad that even the
coaels rased their voices to protest last year. To me this is just fur-
ther proof that Detroit had better get busy and evince some interest
in simaller amateur sports enterprises before trying' to pick off the
Golden Plum. A.,.
While speaking of the Olympics, this is a good time to tell
Wolverine track fans of the activities of two former Michigan thin-
clads who will return to campus in due time. Bob Thomason,
crack distance runner on the 1945 and 1946 Wolverine teams, who
was the youngest varsity letter-winner in Michigan history (he was
1, when le lettered in 145), recently won the 1500-meter run in
the Japanese G.I. Olympics. Bob, an4Asbury Park, N.J. boy, is a
former roommate of mine and is scheduled to return to school this
winter. I don't think we'll be rooming together, however, since he
upped and married on me before he went overseas.
ALSO ON THE G.Z. TEAM over here is another Michigan track-
man, Ron Soble, who hails from Chicago. Soble, a former Gol-
den Gloves champion, enlisted in the paratroopers last year and trav-
eled all over creation on an airborne G.I. boxing team. He also lived
in the same house with Thomason and I, but how he wound up on
the same track team with Bab in Japan is beyond me.
While on the subject of track, people have been asking me
how Chuck Fonville, Michigan's Big Nine and NCAA shot-put
champion, only managed to place fifth in the National AAU
Championships at Lincoln,'Neb. last weekend.
From what I hear, they tried out a new asphalt throwing circle
out there, and the heat softened it up considerably. Fonville, who is
not extremely h'eavy as shot putter go (only 190 pounds), relies upon
his sneed across the circle in tossing the iron ball. Thus, at the AAU
meet, while Fonville was wading across the sticky circle, the heavier
boys' exra poundage was making the difference. Just one of those
things.

NEW YORK, July 9-(A)--The
All-Star Game was just a bitter
memory for the National Leaguers
today as they buckled down for!
another ding-dong battle to the'
wire while the American Leaguers
faced the possibility of another
rout this time by the New York
Yankees.
Returning stars joined up with
their clubs for the second half oft
the races which finds the Eastern
National nines playing host to the
Westerners with the reverse situa-
tion in the junior circuit.
Although they were chuckl-
ing over their 10th All-Star tri-
umph, the American Leaguers,
with the exception of the New'
York group, were not too happy
over the big edge held by the
Yankees-.
The Yanks, with a terrific Stad-
ium record and a weak road mark,
invaded St. Louis for tomorrow's
night clash with an eight-game
winning streak and an inspired
ball club.
The Red Sox and Tigers are
in a virtual tie for second with
the Detroiters a percentage
point ahead. They will tangle
in a twilight tilt in Tigertown
with either Dave (Boo) Ferrissj
on Tex Hughson going against!
Detroit.
Strung out behind the secondc
and third placers are Connie;
Mack's amazing Philadelphia A's7
(102), Cleveland (11), Chicagol

(121). Washington (1412), and
St. Louis (1W9/).
In the National, Brooklyn's
Dodgers were riding atop the heap
with a game edge over the Boston
Braves, with the New York Giants
another half length astern. In
threatening positions were the up-
coming World Champion St. Lous
Cardinals, Chicago's Cubs and
Cincinnati's Reds.
The Cards were 4, games be-
hind the league leaders with Chi-
cago 5/ out and Cincinnati six.
Only the Philadelphia Phils (1212)
and Pittsburgh Pirates (13) ap-
peared out of the chase.
The Brooks, Braves and Gi-
ants have been moving in and
out of the first three spots vir-
tually all season and another
shift could very easily happen
tomorrow when the Cubs invade
Ebbets Field for a doublehead-
er with Brooklyn, St. Louis plays
at New York and Cincinnati vis-
its at Boston.
Mel Ott and his New York
Wrecking Crew, still up in the
chase despite mediocre mound-
work take on the surging Cards
who seem to have straightened out
their kinks for thteir usual second
half season spurt. This five-game
series, which includes a night
game tomorrow and successive
doubleheaders Friday and Satur-
day could very well be the making
or breaking of either club provid-
ing one of the teams winds up with
a 4-1 edge or 5-0 sweep.

at Charlevoix, is part of Port Hur-
on's Blue Water Festival program.

1941 Canadian Open, and John
Kiedis of Grand Rapids, Harold
Stewart of Birmingham, and Aug-
ie York and Harold Wright of
Saginaw.

Golf Tournament began yesterday
at the University Golf Course, as
a large number of participants
teed off on an 18-hole medal play
round. -Tournament Director

through Sunday, is open to all
students, and the sole requirement
is that each contestant turn in
his card, signed by one other

round, the linksmen will be di-
vided into flights according to
their opening round scores, and
a match play tournament will
get under way July 15. Each
flight winner will receive an in-
dividual medal, and if enough
time remains, a final elimination
event will be held to determine
the all-campus champion.

handball schedule has been com-
pleted with Stan Blink, Dan Git-
tleson, and K. Lynn posting vic-
tories in the six-man round robin
tourney.

FLINT, Mich., July 9--(P)--
The Detroit Tigers defeated the
Flint City League All-Stars, 6-3,
here Wednesday in a twilight ex-
hibition game before a crowd of
6,000.
Flint grabbed an early lead,
scoring three runs in the first
two innings off pitcher Johnny
Humphries.
Detroit totaled nine hits while
Flint collected eight, six off Hum-
phries, in the first four innings.
The only hits off Art Houtte-
man in the five innings he worked
were a double and triple by Negro
outfielder Dave Hoskins. Hoskins
also tagged Humphries for a sin-
gle and drove in a run with a'
long fly.
Houtteman faced only 17 men
and struck out eight.
Inverness Golf

TOLEDO, 0., July 9-AP)-Allj
Star field of "Sweet 16" startsj
firing tomorrow in the greatest
spectator tournament of them all
-the $10,000 Inverness Four-Ball
Matches.
Three former PGA kings, three
National Open champions and a
former ruler of both American
and British amateur golf, along
with several winners of the famed
Masters event, are numbered
among the eight twosomes which
will battle it out over 126 holes
for the top prize of $3,000 won
last year by little Ben Hogan
and flashy Jim Demaret.
Under the Inverness scoring
plan each duo will meet each
other twosome over 18 holes of
best-ball match play. The win-
ning two-some gets a "plus" equal
to the number of holes it fin-
ishes "up" on the opposition,
while the losers get a "minus" of
the same amount. The scores are
carried over from match to match,
and at the finish the pair with
the biggest "plus" grabs the
$3,000.
