THE DAILY NEWS-LUDINGTON, MICHIGAN. MONDAY, SEPT. H, 1939. OTIATI Vrl/vll ., •- * ' > Over 50 Candidates, Including 16 Lettermen, Report for First Drills lAlNN ARBOR, Sept. 11.— (flfy— Pre-season football practice got underway at the University of Michigan today amid forecasts *• of another banner year on the gridiron. Some 50-odd candidates, in- eluding 16 lettermen, reported to Cciach Herbert O. (Fritz) Crisler for the first day of dou- J* <ble drills that will continue un- tjl classes open two weeks hence. Today's practice, consisting mostly of conditioning exercises, was a field day for news photographers. Most, of the candidates appeared' in excellent physical condition, a factor which Crisler said would enable him to begin contact work soon. Ahead of the Wolverines, who came within a point of winning ,the Big Ten championship last year, lies an eight-game schedule that includes contests with Michigan State, Minnesota, Yale and Ohio State. Between now and Oct. 7, when the Wolverines meet the Spartans in the opening game, Crisler must rebuild a practically newline to go with one of the finest offensive ibackfields in the school's history. If Crisler can fit together a forward wall of last season's power the Wolverines again will •be title contenders, observers say. , Capt. Archie Kodros at center and John Nicholson at left end are the only regular linemen returning, leaving five positions to be filled. Ed Frutlg, a pass-catching end; Ralph Fritz, Junior guard, , and Bill Smith, Senior tackle, /appeared slated for varsity |',.posts, but the remaining spots are wide open. The second line "will consist entirely of inexperienced players. With the exception of Fullback -Howard Mehaffey, apparently lost for the season because of a leg infection and a recent operation, and Quarterback Jack Meyer, ailing with a lame knee, the backfield material - is formidable. Six Bother lettermen, headed toy Halfbacks Tom Harmon and Paul Kromer and Quarterback Forest Evashevski, are available. Harmon, already tabbed as one of the backs of the year, and EvaShevski, were selected last year' on the Associated Press' All-Big Ten team. All three are Juniors. Tigers Split Twin Bill With Chicago White Sox DETROIT, Sept. ll.—K/P)— Along with the rest of the teams in the American league, the Detroit Tigers were idle today, en route to Boston to open a two- game series against the Red Sox Tuesday. Sunday, in the last home games until Sept. 29, when they return to Briggs stadium to play their final series of the season against Cleveland, the Tigers split a double header with the Chicago White Sox. After taking the opener, 5 to 1, behind the six-hit pitching of Buck Newsom, the Bengals dropped the second 11 to 9. Newsom collected his 16th victory of the season in holding the Chisox to a single run in the first game. Gerald Walker, who got three of Chicago's six hits, robbed him of a shutout in the eighth when he doubled and romped home on Eric McNair's single. The Bengals led off with a run in the first inning off the pitching of J. Dungan Rigney, and added three more in the third and fourth for a lead that was never endangered. The loss put an end to Rigney 's streak of 11 straight victories. Schoolboy Rowe started the nightcap on the mound for the Tigers, but as it turned out he tage. Todd-L-Inn, out to avenge a series of recent defeats at the hands of Scottville, drew first blood by scoring twice in the second inning. In the last of the third Scottville came up with three runs to go ahead 3-2. Not to be outdone, Todd-L-Inn tied it up at three-all in the next inning but that proved to be the last scoring spurt of the game for Ludington. Scottville went into the lead in the fifth inning with a two- run splurge, making the count 5-3 and in the seventh frame literally salted the game away with two more runs. Todd-L- Inn was unable to score in the last two innings and the game ended with Scottville on top, 7-5. Rich, Scottville strikeout artist, had 11 strikeouts to his credit. He passed only one man. Dittmer had six strikeouts to his credit and Bogner one. Dittmer, regular catcher for the Ludington crew, did a good pitching job while on the mound; The only homerun of the game was a clout ,by Bogner of Todd-L-Inn. Robinson, Scottville rightfielder, and Masten, Todd-L-Inn rightfielder, had doubles to their credit. Score toy innings: R H E was just the first of a string of five pitchers who vainly tried to turn back the attack of the Sox. He was followed by Al Benton, Paul Trout, Luther Thomas, and Archie McKain. It was Mc- Kaln's hard luck to serve up the single to Mike Tresh in the eighth which scored Ray Radcliff and Eric McNair with the runs which gave the Sox their winning margin. Off to a booming start with three runs in the first inning, the Tigers held their lead until the fifth, when Chicago made it 5- all. Four Sox errors helped the Bengals move well in front again in the next inning, but Chicago again tied it up in the seventh and went on with the final splurge in the eighth which decided the issue. Bill Dietrich and Edgar Smith hurled for the Sox in the nightcap, with Smith getting credit for the win. Luke Appling, Sox shortstop, was spiked in the first game when he tagged out Frankie Croucher on an attempted steal. Three stitches were needed to close a gash in Appling's knee, and he was ordered back to Chicago. Club officials said he would be out for 10 days. SCOTMLE CLUB LAW ENFORCEMENT ON GREAT LAKES Gunners look Forward to Hunters' Event to Be Held Sept. 24 SCOTTVILLE, Sept. 11.— Scottville Gun club held its second registered skeet shoot of the year at the gun club grounds on US-10-31 Sunday afternoon. The grounds were swept by high winds through the entire day, throwing the marksmen off their shooting for the most part, although several fine marks were garnered. Due to the high wind, the number of participants and visitors was curtailed in comparison with an earlier meet held during the first part of the summer. Scottville gunmen walked off with major part of the day's honors, five out of the first six places being taken by members of the gun club. E. Persek, of Muskegon, was high shooter for the day, knocking down 24 out of a possible 25 targets. F. J. Reader Jr., was (pleaded guilty to a 'charge of) Michigan Patrol Boat No. 1, operated by the Michigan Department of Conservation, lifts a deep-water trap net set near the -Lansing Shoal in northern Lake Michigan.
