Since his arm began to fail him. Newhouser has been of little use to (he Ben- gals and last year svound up with 6-S. Worked Six Innings Hal went six innings against the Washington Senators yesterday and gave Rolfe absolutely no solace. He was banked for nine hits and all the winners' runs in the six; Innlnes he worked The final count read: Washington 6. Detroit 4. Now it could bo that Newhouser is finished. He hns mode two appearances in sprinfr training and dropped both of them. If he doesn't prove to himself that lie can help •the Tigers, he'll probably hang up his glove.
