Detroit Files Bid for '52 Olympics STOCKHOLM (UP) The International Olympic Committee announced that bids for the 1952 Olympic games have been received from Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Detroit, Athens and Helsinki. Snead Goes 6 Shots Up Picard Next with 136 in Jacksonville Open JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (JP) Sam Snead, who concedes "playing pretty good golf these days," fired a six-under-par 66 to pull six strokes ahead at the halfway mark of the $10,000 Jacksonville Open golf tournament. The long-driving pro front Hot Springs, Va, defending champion In the local meet, went out In SI and took a 35 coming back to put his thirty-six-hole total at ISO. In second place is the veteran stylist Henry Picard, of Oklahoma City, with 136. Following are Lawson Little, of Monterey, Calif., and Pete Cooper, of Gainesville, Fla., with 138s. ED (PORKY) Oliver, of Taunton, Mass.. who held second place Friday with 65, faltered and took a 74 for 139. The round was Snead's show all the way. He racked up five birdies going out and picked up another coming in, slowing up and playing a more conservative game on the back nine. Snead started the round by carding birdies on the 340-yard par-four first hole, the 451-yard par-five second and the 370-yard par-four third. THE VIRGINIAN belted out a 300-yard drive on the 440-yard par-five fifth hole and was high on the green with a crisp iron. He sank in two for another birdie. On the sixth, a 160-yarder, Snead's tee shot was seven feet from the pin and he dropped it for his fifth birdie in six holes. For the rest of the round, the Slammer never quite regained the feather touch that netted him the earlier birdies. He played steady golf, however, and was in serious trouble only once on the hard-trapped, 300-yard sixteenth hole. Sam Byrd, of Detroit, added a 69 to his Friday card of 70 for a half-way total of 139. Chick Har-bert, of Detroit, stood at 141 with scores of 67 and 74. Men's "Strate-Eights These good "Strate-Eight" shoes are acclaimed by thousands of Detroit men for their outstanding value at this price. Of choice calfskin leathers- smooth and grained.

MEN'S SHOE SHOP Second Floor Woodward Avanu Buildlno Soction D HUD Store Hours Daily, Sigfrid Edstroem, c ommittee president, said several other bids were expected before a selection is made. Edstroem also announced the committee will meet at Lausanne, Switzerland, Sejt. 3, and probably will select a site for the 1948 winter games. Saint Moritz was considered the likely choice. Long Campaign Waged by Detroit for Games Detroit has made several bids to hold the Olympic Games, with Industrialist Frederick C. Mat-thaei as the motivating factor. In 1940 Matthaei and a special committee even had complete plans drawn, including those for a stadium to seat 110,000. During the same year Doug Roby and J. Lee Barrett made an unsuccessful trip to London in an effort to land the Olympics. BARRETT, executive vice president of the Detroit Convention and Tourist Bureau, pointed out that a Detroit bid for the Olympics would be contingent upon the ability of a local Olympic committee to complete arrangements for an Olympic village as well as a big stadium. Barrett said that he was aware that Los Angeles Intends to make a determined bid for the 1952 games. Barrett added that he was of the opinion that Detroit might have obtained the 1944 Olympic games if there had been no war. A&M Whole Show on All-League Five ST.

The defeat ended Detroit's hopes of overtaking the third-place Chicago Black Hawks in the league standing. e IN A SENTIMENTAL gesture, he was placed at center between Sweeney Schriner and Lome Carr to revive one of hockey's most potent combinations of past seasons before the two veteran wingmen retire from hockey at the end of this season. Taylor gave one of his best performances of the year with three goals, and Carr added another the 204th of his National Hockey League career. Gus Bodnar, Gaye Stewart and Bob Goldham scored the other three Toronto goals and the Detroit goal-getters were Pat Lundy, Fernand Gauthier and Bill Quack-enbush. THERE WERE only two penalties in the first two periods, but late in the third a general melee brought four at once for roughing. Those penalized were Jack Stewart and Goalie Harry Lum-ley, of Detroit, and Gaye Stewart and Gus Bodnar, of Toronto. The Wings, who o u t s h o t the Leafs 37 to 32, took a two-goal lead in the first period, but by the end of the second the Toronto team led. 3 to 2. Detroit tied it up early in the third, and then the Toronto scoring avalanche settled the issue, Taylor getting the first two of the four third-period goals.

TROUBLE IN BUFFALO Piriboys' Strike Throws ABC Meet Off Schedule Special to the Free Press BUFFALO Veteran American Bowling Congress followers agree unanimously that the 1946 setting in the vast 74th armory drill hall is something "to marvel at." They also agree that the forty-third edition of the world championship classic, now in its third day, has become a mad piece of confusion in that short time, and the end is not yet in sight. THE TOURNAMENT opened Thursday with a shortage of two pin boys. That set things back an hour. Friday four were missing and that set the schedule back two hours. Saturday six failed to show up, and the tournament was going Segura Beats McNeill for Singles Title NEW YORK (JP) Pancho Segura, the tightly-wound little Ecuadorian who swings a tennis racquet with both hands, captured the United States Indoor singles championship with a four-set victory over former Titleholder Don McNeill, 1-6, 6-3, 6-4, 7-5. The South American parlayed superb passing shot and an uncanny defensive game into the triumph that took the title out of the United States for the first time since Jean Borotra carted it to France in 1931. McNeill contributed to his own defeat by committing more errors than he had made in all his other matches in this first National Indoor Tournament since 1941. IT WAS A sudden switching in tactics by the Ecuadorian ace which forced McNeill into the mis takes that ruined his chances of recapturing the title he held in 1938. f - McNeill, twenty-sevent-year-old Oklahoman who now lives at Orange, N. J-, wrapped up the first set with the loss of only one game in a manner that convinced the 1,500 fans at the Seventh Regiment armory that he was about to go through the tournament without losing a set. But the twenty-four-year-old Segura discarded his vicious longdistance drives and began returning all of McNeill's shots in soft, pattycake fashion. With this switch on the part of his opponent, McNeill's game went to pieces. Hawks Lose to Canadiens MONTREAL (JP) The champion Montreal Canadiens dampened Chicago's second place hopes by walloping the Hawks, 6-3. in the last regular meeting of the two National Hockey League clubs this season.

".'.at.;v..-':i:' ".: S;. THE DETROIT FREE PRESS o IX SUNDAY, SECTION A . s York Yankees in St. Petersburg, of the Yanks, goes after the ball (Story on Page2.) in circles, with 10 o'clock teams showing at 4 o'clock. Four o'clock teams came on at 7, and 11 p. m. teams were scheduled to go on some time Sunday morning, ABC officials hoped. Gus Cosmos, member of one of the Moslem Shrine teams from Detroit, looked over the scene, did a spell of pin setting himself and said: "If they mix it up any more, the 1946 tournament will go down in history as the sixty-two-day tournament, which ended in 75 days maybe." THE BOWLERS, being a con genial lot, were having a good time. The spectators just sat and stared. There were a few scores to follow on the boards, and the over-all picture was one of a lot of people bowling without anyone knowing for hours who did what. Walter Hubener, another Moslem Shrine bowler, and several other teammates also took a hand at sticking pins. Hubener made one resolution. He said: "If they get to the point where they want us to sweep the alleys, too, that s where I quit. TWO OTHER Detroiters, Cliff Husson and Julius Lowe, scheduled for doubles, never got-a chance to bowl. They were no pin boys and they didn't feel up to the proposi tion of rolling a ball, then running down to do the pinboy work. Despite these little trials the Detroit contingent did better than fair. John Kulhavi, when . he wasn't busy sticking pins (and he did) moved into third place in singles with a 638 series. Harry Starbuck and Andrew Ly chalk, of Detroit, took the doubles lead on the three-hour delayed 2 p. m. shift with a 1245 series. Starbuck paced the duo with a 653 series on games of 202, 233 and 218. Another Detroiter, Edward Sche manske, cracked the singles lead ers with a second-place 654. Sche- manske put together scores of 191, 245 and 218 in the individual event.

W. EDGAR Two bowlers who never had met until five minutes before they went on the alleys took the lead m the Free Press-Palmer Park mixed doubles tournament by the margin of a single pin. They were Mrs. Elsie Bohn-sack and Ken .DeNagle, who pooled their efforts for a 1256 count. They rolled their series on the end alleys, Nos. 41 and 42, considered the bugaboos of all bowlers. DeNagle. who carries a 189 aver age in the Men's Traveling League, came through with a 673, the hign est senes of the tournament so far. He had games of 206, 213 and 254. a MRS. BOHNSACK. who has t mean average of 159 in the Travel ing and Metropolitan Leagues, helped with a 490 series on games of 148, 186 and 156. The team had a handicap of 31 pins a game. Although they took the lead, DeNagle and Mrs. Bohnsack had some bad luck. With a spare up early in the first game, DeNagle got only one pin on when his next ball slipped from his hands. In spite of that he fired a 206. Alice Hosier and Dominic Vig. liott, who took over the pacemak insr role a week ae-o with 1255, dropped back to second place. While the new leaders were getting the cheers of the gallery; Millie Bubach and George March slipped into fourth place with 1251. March banged out a 568, while his Dartner contributed a 462. to add to a spot of 77 pins a game on Trucks for All Runs Evers Collects Four of Detroit's Nine Hits BY LYALL. SMITH Frea Preu Sports Editor LAKELAND, Fla. Now it's six straight defeats for the Tigers, who have gone as sour as any team in the Grapefruit circuit. The score was 4 to 3 for a second-string Washington Senator outfit, whose own generosity provided the losers- all their runs in the loosely played game. The Nats kicked away five balls with Outfielder Gil Coan, the rookie from Chattanooga, responsible for three. But even such unbounded helpfulness, coupled with nine hits compared to the seven Washington picked up off Virgil Trucks and Stubby Overmire, couldn't help Detroit shake off the lethargy that has engulfed them since they de feated this same team by an iden tical score in their first exhibition game. THE ONLY encouraging Item for the Tigers was the four hits, all singles, slashed out by Center- fielder Hoot Evers. He now has 12 hits in 29 trips to the plate for .414 average. Hoot is the only Bengal to show any resemblance to a hitter, but none of his blows drove in any runs in this game. In fact, if it hadn't been for the first of Coan's errors and a walk by Pitcher Johnny Niggeling with the bases loaded, the Tigers would not have scored at all. Coan dropped an easy pop fly by Ned Harris after Cornelius Berry had walked and Murray Franklin and Evers had singled in the first frame. That gave Detroit a two-run lead, but it didn't last long. Trucks walked Joe Kuhel to open the Nats second and when Evers threw wildly over third base on George Binks' single, the score was 2 to 1. . THREE MORE singles by De troit off Ntee-eling in the third loaded the bases with no outs. but if Johnny hadn't then walked a batter there would have been no score at all. That made it 3 to 1 for the losers, but in the Washington fifth, Catcher Jake Early slapped a wind-blown triple past Rip RadcUff in left field to score Ed Lyons and Charley Roberts, who had opened the inning with singles off Trucks. A fly ball sent Early across and that completed the scoring. Trucks gave up seven hits and all four runs over his five-inning workout, while Overmire pitched hitless ball over the final four frames. Rae Scarborough -replaced Nig geling in the fourth and although Detroit loaded the bases again on hits by Hank Greenberg and Evers plus a base on balls, it couldn't score. Evers picked up his final two safeties off Vernon Curtis, third Nat hurler, and was the only Tiger to hit the slender right hander. ONLY PERSON to feel worse than the Bengals about the game was young Coan, who has been billed as the rookie hope of the Senators this summer. He nearly knocked himself out on one of his errors when a fly ball by Franklin in the sixth inning hit him on top of the head for a three-base error. But even such plays as these made no difference to the Tigers, who had the bases loaded four times and left 12 runners stranded on the base paths. The pitching of Overmire, the chubby little southpaw, helped to take a little sting out of the setback.. Stubby didn't have a ball hit out of the infield in his four-inning stint. He walked three men, but that was all. - In Sunday's double-header, Al Benton and Lou Kretlow will pitch against the same team at Orlando, while Freddie Hutchinson will work at home against the Cleveland Indiana.
