allowing only one unearned run
and two hits. He was wild though
as he gave 'up five walks.
Pitchers Lack Control
"The main fault with our pitch-
ers has been their lack of control
and consequent falling behind the
hitters. With the count at 3-1, 2-0,
or 3-0, the batter knows that the
pitcher is going to come in with
that fat pitch, and thus he is
waiting for it," explained Lund.
As a result of the weekend ac-
tivity, the Wolverines are mired in
the second division with a 5-7 rec-
ord and have been eliminated from
title contention.
Today the squad travels to East-
ern Michigan for an exhibition
contest with the Hurons. Lund
has named Jim Bradshaw to start
for the Wolverines, who have al-
ready beaten Eastern twice this
season, 12-0 and 4-1.
Track Tickets
Still on Sale
Tickets for the Big Ten outdoor
track championships to be held
at Ferry Field this weekend went
on sale yesterday at the Athletic
Administration Building.
The meet begins Friday after-
noon with the preliminaries at
4:30. Tickets for the day's events
will be one dollar.
The finals will get underway at
1:30 p.m. Saturday and tickets for
that day are featured under two
price ranges. Reserved tickets at
the finish line may be purchased
for two dollars. General admis-
sion will again be one dollar.
According to Don Weir, ticket
manager for the meet, response
has been good but there are lots
of good seats remaining.

John Mostyn's mark is not like-
ly to go into the record books in
the opinion of Pinky Sober, chair-
man of the National AAU Track
and Field and Olympic commit-
The 18-year-old school boy
from Bergen Catholic High, Ora-
dell, N. J., was clocked in world-
equalling time last Saturday.
"It is the established policy of
the National AAU and the Inter-
national Amateur Athletic Fed-
eration not to accept straight-
away records unless there is a
wind gauge," Sober told the New
York Track Writers' Assn. today.
There was no wind gauge at the
Englewood, N.J. meet. Officials
however, said there was no tail
wind, which would have aided
Mostyn in his fast flight.
Sober also said in his opinion it
is doubtful the National Track
and field Committee will recog-
nize the time because, "There is
doubt: whether there was visible
smoke fromĀ° the starter's gun,

whether the 100-yd. distance was
acurate and whether there was a
rolling start after two false starts."
Sober also pointed out no
sprinter ever received credit for
:09.3 who hadn't run close to it
in previous races. Mostyn's pre-
vious best time was :09.6 in two
races. None of the participants
broke 10 fiat in the trials and five
finalists were caught in :09.8 or
faster. Four watches had Mostyn
in :09.3, one in :09.2 and another
in :09.4.

Race Driver Unser Dies
INDIANAPOLIS - Drivers and
mechanics put aside their helmets
and wrenches yesterday and the
noisy Indianapolis Motor Speed-
way was stilled for an hour in a
t r i b u t e to handsome, affable
young Jerry Unser - 49th man to
die at the half-century-old auto
racing plant.
Unser, 26 and well started on a
promising racing career, died Sun-
day when he wrecked a car on a
practice run May 2.
As a result of Unser's wreck, the
United States Auto Club ruled
that all drivers in races it sanc-
tions msut wear flame-proofed
garments hereafter.
Like an army burying its dead
on, the battle field, the racing men
quickly picked up their tools
again and resumed the job of tun-
ing cars and sharpening driving
skills for the next, final weekend
of time trials for the 43rd 500-
Mile Race May 30.
Nineteen spots were still open
in the 33-car starting field after
wind ' and showers discouraged
many of the drivers in the first
qualifications last Saturday and

LONDON (M) - The oldest and
most treasured of all track and
field world records - the 1935
broad jump of 26'84" by Ameri-
ca's Jesse Owens - may soon be
erased from the books.
The man who now appears most
likely to eclipse the only pre-war
record still existing is a Russian
named Igor Ter-Ovanesyan.
Owens' great mark,,made on a'
memorable day at Ann Arbor,
when the remarkable Ohio State'
athlete set four world records, has
withstood the onslaught of time
and the inexorable march of ath-
letic progress.
But even the incomparable,
Grid T icket
Sale To Begin

Owens must yield soon. Those
other famous names of past days
-Nurmi, Haegg, Paddock, Harbgi,
Warmerdam - all have slipped
gracefully from the lists.
Why will Ter-Ovanesyan threat-
en the record?
Mainly, because he has steadily
and firmly been creeping up to
Owens' mark.
Also, as all Russians do, he has
been concentrating solidly on his
event. Owens only broad jumped
in competition. He once said he
never took a leap in practice --
only when it counted in an event.
Ter-Ovanesyan, a: student now
at Lvov, is an Armenian who can
run :10.5 in the 100 meters (that's
about :09.6 for the 100 yards).
He's an unusually intelligent
youngster, too, and above all, a
great competitor.
