DETROIT-The Detroit Tigers
and the Washington Nationals
battled to a 2-2 tie in a game call-
ed because of heavy showers with
the Tigers batting in the fifth in-
ning. The contest was played under
protest by both clubs.
The performances go into the
record books but the game will
have to be iplayed from the start
some time last this season.
Both protests resulted from a
much-argued play in the Tiger
first inning. After Harvey Kuenn's
leadoff single, Jack Phillips hit a
line drive which Ernie Oravetz ap-
parently speared against the left
field screen. But third base um-
pire John Rice ruled that Oravetz
did not catch the ball and Kuenn
continued to third.
Phillips, who had rounded first,
h aded for the dugout, thinking
the ball had been caught. After
Rice's ruling, Phillips raced back
to first but was tagged out.

special to the Daily
KALAMAZOO - Dick Potter,
number two man on Michigan's

finalists yesterday by downing
1953 Big Ten singles champion Al
Kuhn of Northwestern, 6-2, 7-5.
Teammate John Harris lost his
second round match to Joaquin
Reyes of Southern California, 6-2,

Houston Cops Golf Title
COLUMBUS, Ohio (P) - Rex
Baxter Jr. of Houston University
sank a 40-foot putt for a birdie on
the final bole yesterday to win
medalist honors in the 59th Na-
tional Intercollegiate champion-
ship and to give his school its
first four-man team title in the
annual classic.
The 20-year-old senior from
Amarillo, Tex., who was eliminat-
ed in last year's semi-finals at
Knoxville, registered seven birdies
and missed par twice for a 35-32-
67 to tie the amateur competitive
record for the Ohio State Univer-
sity's 7,120-yard, par 72 course.
Added to the 73 which he fired
Monday without benefit of a prac-
tice round, Baxter's 67 gave him
a 36-hole total of, 140 and six
stroke edge over his nearest op-

ponent, Bob Dunn Jr. of Florida
State, who registered a 69 Tues-
day for a 146 total.
Scores of 154 for the 36 holes
were good enough to get into the
match play bracket of 64 which
starts man-to-man play Wednes-
day.
Michigan';s Fred Micklow was
the only Wolverine to reach the
playoffs. He followed his Monday
round of 74 with a 77 and a total

of Americans through the first
day of the women's singles play
yesterday.
The American ladies swept all
their 10 singles matches.
Top-seeded Miss Brough of Bev-,
erly Hills, Calif., eliminated Jean
Forbes, 16-year-old South African,
6-0, 6-0.
Miss Gibson, fourth-seeded New
Yorker, had a difficult time in de-
feating Edda Buding, a 19-year-
old German, 6-4, 6-2.
Holds Many Trophies
Althea, playing at Wimbledon
for the first time since 1951 when
she was eliminated in the early
rounds, has won 18 European tro-
phies and British tournament tro-
phies. Her victory string included
a triumph over Miss Brough.
Second-seeded Beverly Baker

Paul Richards, Oriole manager,
said he paid more than the waiver

by the St. Louis Cardinals.
Although he has been in organ-

Seven Golfers Qualify
SUNNINGDALE, England -
America's women golfers, frus-
trated in their effort to retain the
Curtis Cup a couple of weeks ago,
made a determined pitch for the
British' Women's Amateur Cham-
pionship yesterday and seven of
them won their way through two
gruelling rounds.
Pat Lesser of Seattle, the Amer-
ican champion, and Barbara Ro-
mack of Sacramento, Calif., the
1954 U.S. titleholder, led the
American parade into today's
third round.
Few Eliminated.
Eleven Americans began play
this morning after two others who
had entered belatedly withdrew.
After the first round over the roll-
ing, 6,002-yard Sunningdale course
with its 36-36-72 par, there were
eight left. By nightfall seven still
were in there.
Other American survivors are
Margaret Wiffi Smith, 19-year-old
from St. Clair, Mich.; Mary Ann
Downey of Baltimore; Mary Pat-
ton Janssen of Charlottesville, Va.;
and Mrs. John Pennington of Buf-

America's two most famous golf-
ers the Canada Cup for national
teams with a 567 score.
The shot of the day, and maybe
the shot of the year, was made by
Hogan on the fourth hole in the
last round. He had just taken the
lead from Leonard, but the issue
was still in doubt.
Hogan's second shot on the 505-
yard fourth went into a bunker 60
feet from the pin. Just as Hogan
did three years ago at Carnoustie
when he won the British Open, he
holed out the shot, this time for
an eagle three.
Hogan finished the 5-hour, 15-
minute morning round limping,
drawn and showing the effects of
his automobile-bus accident in
West Texas seven years ago in
which he was nearly killed.
For the individual champion-
ship De Vicenzo, an Argentine now
living in Mexico, finished second
with a 282 total.
Leonard, the third-round lead-
er, slumped to sixth with a final
round of 79 for 286.
Branoff Wed
DETROIT (A)--Tony Branoff,
halfback for Michigan's football
team the past three years, was en
route to a Florida honeymoon to-
day after his marriage to the for-
mer Mary Jane Frankensteen of
Detroit.
The couple were wed in Detroit's
All Saints Episcopal Church.
Among attendants at the wedding
were several of Branoff's former
teammates at Michigan.
Mrs. Branoff's father is Richard
T. Frankensteen, one-time labor
leader and presently an indus-
trialist.
