e w w w ffl Saturday, June 3, 1950 DETROIT FREE PRESS ers5 Wildest 1950 Spree Staggers A's 12 & C7 Heads West "I V V- TIPPY DYE It's Big- Ten's loss r- D ye Quits Washington Pay Boost Woos Tippy Buckeye Cage Mentor Gets $9,000 a Year SEATTLE (ZP) William Henry Harrison Dye "tippy" in the trade was handed the reins of the University of Washington's basketball firewagon. Dye, an exponent of the fast-break basketball that delights the northwest, guided Ohio State to the Big Ten championships this spring. His team was nipped by a single point in the Eastern semifinals of the national collegiate AA tourney. The club that stopped Ohio State New York City College went on to the national crown. Harvey Cassill, Washington athletic director, said Dye's appointment was effective "at once." "IT MAY TAKE Tippy a few days to move out here but he's on the payroll now," said Cassill. He refused to disclose the salary or time phases of the contract, but the Ohio State Journal said early in the week Dye had been offered $9,000 a year. The contracts of Washington coaches normally are renewed from year to year. The 35-year-old coach will fall heir to a young club which earned a tie for second with Oregon State in the last Northern division, Pacific Coast conference pennant chase. The lettermen will be bolstered and maybe chased to cover by recruits from one of the biggest and finest Washington frosh fives in many seasons. DYE SUCCEEDS Art McLar-1 ney, who resigned at the close of; the 1950 season because of poorj health. Bill Morris, freshman; coacTK who had been mentioned as ! a possibility for the top job, will remain as boss of the greenlings. Dye, who coached State to No. 2 national ranking and the Big Ten title last season, received 6,000 from Ohio State last year. Athletic Director Richard C. Larkins of Ohio State said no successor to Dye would be appointed for several weeks. Dye, who took over as head basketball coach at Ohio State four years ago, coached four teams to 53 victories and 34 losses. Last year's Western Conference champions won 22 and lost four games, for an all-time Ohio State record. Mates Honor Leo Koceski Special to the Free Press ANN ARBOR Leo Koceski, slugging outfielder and football star from Canonsburg, Pa., was elected 1951 baseball captain by his University of Michigan teammates. In Conference play, Koceski batted .333, knocked in 10 runs, hit for 32 bases, slugged out three homers, two three-baggers and a single, in 12 games. Nagy Bowls Here Steve Nagy, ex-Detroit ace, and members of the high-powered WADC team, from Akron, will headline bowling in the Automo-bowl Classic at State Fair Recreation Saturday night. They will bowl at 8 and 10 p. m. f WEARS GLASSES Ted SEES PHILADELPHIA Ted Gray added something new to his pitching repertoire Friday night. For the first time in his career. Gray wore glasses while on the mound. He complained that he has been having trouble with his vision during night games and tried wearing the glasses. It seemed to work, for his con-'trol.was better and he handled two. difficult fielding chances 1 perfectly. Calls 'Just Ted Pipe Special to the Free Presi BOSTON Ted Williams and the Boston Red Sox management labeled as a "pipe dream" published reports the star outfielder would be traded at the close of the present season. Williams purportedly sought his sale to Detroit, New York or Cleveland because of "rough treatment" at the hands of Boston fans. o "THE STORY IS absolutely false," Williams claims, "I wouldn't want to play for anyone but Tom Yawkey. I never told anyone I wanted to leave Boston." General Manager Joe Cronin of the Red Sox said: "The whole thing is a pipe dream. Ted is staying with us." Club officials of teams mentioned in a deal for Williams admitted they would like to have the home run slugger, but doubted if such a transaction was possible.

Teams from Pontiac, Grand Rapids, Muskegon, Grayling, Beu-lah, Newaygo, St. Joseph, Ionia and St. Helen form Michigan's contingent. Heavy Wetting LONDON (JP) A sudden heavy storm struck the Kempton Park Race Track Friday and temporarily marooned thousands of fans by flooding exits. One man was killed by lightning. ON MOUND FOR FIRST TIME How He Did It The Tigers will face their third straight left-hander in Saturday's finale with the Athletics. Bobby Shantz has been named as the pitcher by Connie Mack. Manager Red Rolfe will send Hal Newhouser to the mound seeking his fourth straight victory. Hal has started and finished his last three games, winning each with ease.

The entry list, which closed Thursday night, showed a record overseas entry of 22 oarsmen and crews, four more than the previous high of 18 set in 1939. Yale's 150-pound crew, victors in all intercollegiate competition this spring, has stepped out of its weight class to enter the mile-and-five-sixteenths race. The Kent School heavyweight eight, the only crew to beat the Yale 150-pounders this year, has entered the same event. THE DARTMOUTH rowing club and Harvard, winners of the Grand Challenge cup in 1914 and 1939, will row against the cream of English, Italian, Dutch and Belgian eights in that event. The top rac for scullers, the Diamond Sculls, has five foreign entries including Thomas McCreesh, of St. Joseph's College, of Philadelphia. For the first time in many years, foreign rowers also will compete in the Wyfold Cup for fours. United States crews from th Hun School, of Princeton, N. J., and the Pomfret School have entered the Wyfold. The United States also will be represented In the Silver Goblets for pairs with E. E. Kramer and G. R. Rah, of the Dartmouth Rowing Club entered. the second, Johnny Lipon ran his consecutive hitting streak to 15 games. George Kell's five hits in the twin bill gave - him a batting average of .368. The game rained out Thursday night will be played as part of a twi-night double-header July 17. This means the Tigers face three twin bills in three days on that Eastern trip. LATSHAW.

A radioactive golf ball that a geiger counter can locate anywhere in the rough was unveiled to the world at the Portage Country Club here by Dr. William L. Davidson, 34, director of the B. F. Goodrich Co., research laboratory. He is the scientist who first suggested it as a "practical joke." The ball is "strictly experimental" now, Davidson said but it really works. PRO LAWSON LITTLE deliberately sliced the revolutionary ball into some deep underbrush. Davidson's portable geiger counter began clicking as he brought it near the hidden ball, buzzed suddenly and the ball was found. Davidson said .02 grams of radioactive zinc in the ball was enough to get a geiger counter clicking within three feet of it without upsetting the delicate balance even a duffer wants in a golf ball. Before "balls that can't be lost" could be sold to the public, Davidson said, Goodrich would have to get permission from the atomic energy commission. HE SAID A golfer can safely carry a dozenradioactive balls for more than 24 hours. And he added, a geiger counter weighing only a few ounces and costing $25 is now on the market. "That's only the price of about 25 golf balls," he said. Major League Standings AMERICAN LEAGUE Job W L Pet. GB New York 27 11 .711 ..

Signs Pro Contract MINNEAPOLIS (JP) Kevin O'Shea, Notre Dame's star guard for the past three years, signed a one-year contract with the Minneapolis Lakers of the National Professional Basketball Association. H oernsc E iten McMillin Does Well in Draft Eight Others Picked by Detroit Entry BY BOB LATSHAW Free Press Staff Writer PHILADELPHIA Coach Bo McMillin added one of the All America Conference s all-time offensive stars to the Detroit Lion roster for 1950. He's Bob (Hunchy) Hoernsch-meyer, former Indiana University star and for four years a pro player despite his youthful 24 years. THE LIONS also picked up two ends familiar to Detroit football fans. They are Dick Rifenburg, All-America from the University of Michigan, and Warren Huey, of Michigan State. Rifenburg, now a sports announcer with a Detroit radio station, starred with Michigan's 1948 Rose Bowl champions. He was with the New York Yankees last fall, but was injured and saw no action. Huey completed his competition at Michigan State a year ago. Since then he has served as an assistant coach on the Spartan football tsaff. Another former Michigan star, Center Dan Dworsky, was acquired by Pittsburgh from Los Angeles. Hoernschmeyer played for two of the lowly members of the AAC but was a standout performer by any standard. In his four years with the Chicago Rockets, Brooklyn Dodgers and Chicago Hornets, Hunchy Lion End Signs; Goes on Offense Barney Hafen, 195-pound end, signed a contract to play his second season with the Detroit Lions. Hafen, 26, a product of the University of Utah, was used almost exclusively on defense last season, but Coach Bo McMillin said he hoped to fit him into Detroit's offensive picture next fall. The Lions now have 17 players under contract for the 1950 season. switched from single-wing to T formation back to single-wing football without hurting his style. HE WAS fourth in the league's all-time total offense standing. He picked up 6218 yards on 1194 plays, topped only by Glenn Dobbs in the number of times he handled the ball. In rushing, Hunchy had a four-year record of 2109 yards. In passing he was sixth among the all-timers with 308 completions. In addition to Hoernschmeyer, Rifenburg and Huey, the Lions acquired two ends, three tackles and three backs. The ends were Rookies Bob Jensen, of Iowa State, and George Begnini, Georgetown. The rookie tackles were Lou Creekmur, William and Mary star who played against Michigan State last fall, and Gerald Morrical, Indiana and William Kay, Iowa. The backs included Southern Methodist's ace passer, Gil Johnson who was with the New York Yankees? Ray Coates, of LSU and the New York Giants, and Joyce Pipkin, of Arkansas and the L.A. Dons. Baltimore came up with the prize package as the coaches split up the players put out of work by the merger of the All-Amencan Conference and the NFL. THE COLTS picked up big Chet Mutryn, a fullback, who was among the leaders in virtually every department of offense. The New York Yankees picked up George Taliaferro, former Indiana back, and Green Bay got Billy Grimes, Oklahoma A. and M. star, The Rams and Chicago Cardinals concluded the first deal during the first day's sessions. Los Angeles traded Veteran Bob Shaw, and Tom Keane, halfback and end, and Jerry Cowig, full back, for Center Bob Reinhard, former USC tackle, who was the Card's No. 1 draft choice. GEORGE" HALAS, of the Chi cago Bears, traded Ed Stickel to the Washington Redskins. The Bears received Red Adams, a six-foot-seven tackle, and James Spa- vital, brilliant halfback from Okla homa A&M in return. Spavital is rates one of the best ball-carriers to come out of the West. McMillin was still talking trades to several clubs, but nothing concrete came out of the discussions. The Cardinals were still interested in Frank Tripucka for Vince Banonis, but they also wanted another Lion thrown in the deal. ll meyer, burg Trade Pays 5 RAY SCARBOROUGH Goes all the way on mound 2 New White Sox Nip Uanks, 6 to 3 Bosox Blast Feller in First to Win, 12-5; Browns Slap Nats Free Press Wire Services Two Chicago White Sox newcomers, Eddie Robinson and Ray Scarborough, obtained from Washington this week, collaborated to trim the New York Yankees, 6 Robinson climaxed a 12th-inning;i rally when he sliced a single to left field to send in two runs. Scarborough, making his pitching debut for the White Sox, scattered 13 hits to win a tense duel with Vic Raschi. Earlier, Robinson touched off a three-run fourth-inning rally with a tremendous homer into the up per right-field grandstand. JOE DIMAGGIO sent the game into extra innings when he hit a two-run homer in the eighth that tied the score at 4-all. The Boston Red Sox routed Bob Feller In a six-run first inning and beat the Cleveland Indians, 11 to 5. Ted Williams smashed his 12th homer and Walt Dropo belted his 11th as the Sox rocked five Cleveland pitchers with 12 hits. Feller walked the first three batters to face him and the In dians never recovered. THE ST. LOUIS BROWNS mauled Washington with 26 hits to take a double-header, 10 to 5, and 9 to 3. An avalanche, of injuries beset the Senators, who lost Outfielder Gil Coan for at least a month. He suffered a fractured skull while sliding into Own Friend attempting to break up a seventh-inning double play. Dick Weik, who relieved in both games, was struck on the leg by a line drive and limped off the field; Mickey Grasso, Senators' catcher, was struck on the neck by a foul tip and left the second game, and Sam Mele, Washington's leading hitter, suffered a re- currence of a groin injury and missed the second game, Drobny in Finals; Will Meet Patty PARIS (JP) Jaroslav Drobny, of Egypt, gained the finals of the French International tennis tour nament by defeating Eric Sturgess of South Africa, 6-4. 7-5, 3-6, 12-10.

A hit-happy Detroit Tiger club hammered an assortment of Connie Mack's pitching corps for 35 safeties and easily swept a double-header from the Athletics, 8 to 2 and 16 to 5. Little Ted Gray turned in a six-hit performance in the opener. Freddy Hutchinson coasted to victory although he gave up 15 hits in the nightcap. It was the fifth victory for each. THE TWIN victories, coupled with the Yankees' loss to Chicago put the Tigers just two games back of the pace-setting Yankees. This was the greatest display of batting power by the Tigers this season. The 16 runs and 21 hits which produced them were highs for the 1950 campaign. It would be hard to pick a star in the slugfest. Vic Wertz helped Gray in the opener. He had three hits, including his sixth homer of the year, to drive in five runs. But every player in the lineup except Gray had at least one base-knock in the contest. George Kell, who had four hits while hitting the cycle a homer, triple, double and single was the top slugger of the afterpiece. But he had to take a share of the title for most hits with Hutchinson. Freddy had four safeties, too, in cluding a pair of doubles and tied Kell by knocking in three runs. Hoot Evers and Don Koiloway each had three hits and Johnny Lipon, Jerry Priddy each had two. BY WHIPPING the Macks twice, the Tigers ran their road streak to 16 victories in 19 starts. These were the sixth and seventh straight victories over the A's this year. Mr. Mack started Lou Brissie in the first game and he was tagged for 11 hits before leaving for a pinch-hitter in the eighth. Hank Wyse finished and gave up three more. It was the seventh loss in eight games for Brissie. Alex Kellner, the second southpaw starter of the night, lasted only two innings and left with the score 6 to 1 against him. It was the fifth defeat in seven starts for Kellner. Harry Byrd pitched five innings and was touched for 11 hits. Ed Kleiman finished, giving up two more. FOR FOUR innings. Gray and Brissie engaged in a pitching duel. Then the roof fell in. A walk, a double . by Kell and successive homers by Wertz and Evers made the score 5 to 1 and the contest was, to all intents ana purposes, over. Gray fanned eight in his best performance of the year. The A's earned their two runs on a double and single in the fourth and then picked up the other on a walk and two singles in the seventh. Those were the only innings that Gray was in trouble. Kell gave Hutchinson a one-run lead in the first inning on his second homer of the year in the nightcap, but it didn't seem enough when the A's came to bat. EDDIE JOOST lined a homer into the upper left-field seats and then a single and two walks filled the bases after two were out. Hutch got the next batter to escape further damage. Three walks, three singles and Kell's triple added five runs to the Tiger total in the second and then the game went on ice in the third. All told, 11 Bengals went to the plate and six of them scored. Included in the barrage were three doubles, by Wertz, Hutch and Evers, three singles and Johnny Groth's sixth home run of the season. All told the Tigers hit for a total of 57 bases, including four homers, a triple ,and eight doubles. The quintet of Mack pitchers gave up 12 bases on balls. Despite the fact the Tigers picked up 24 runs in the two games, they left 25 runners stranded on the sacks. ALTHOUGH HE was hit freely, Hutchinson wasn't in too much trouble except for the seventh inning. He was out in front, 14 to 1, by then. After Joost 's homer the Macks didn't score until the seventh when they put together four straight hits. A double play helped before the fifth hit drove In the third run of the frame.
