Deadly Chop Stroke Proves t udoing;
Victory Is Third Straight For
BOTH CAPTAINS LOSE
Wolverine netmnen lost for the first
time this year when a strong, well
rounded Illinois quartet combined a
deadly chopping attack with the high
wind to win four of the six matches
played and break Michigan's string of
five victories. This was the third
straight Conference win for the IH.
lini, Iowa and Chicago having fallen
before them by scores of 6-0 and 4-2
respectively. . F
Illinois piled up a lead that proved
insurmountable by taking the first
three matches played and a lead of
3-0. It was in such a situation that
Dick Crane pulled out the first Mich-j
igan triumph by winning from Capt.
Eddy Shoaff in a three set match, 2-6,
9-7, 6-1. After losing the first set, to
the Illinois leader, Crane settled down
to give the prettiest exhibition of the
The second set was close, and it was
here that Crane's steadiness first
showed power in a match that was
featured by long sparkling rallies.
Crane secured a fit revenge over the
Illinois captain for in the matches last
year which were played at Champaign,
Shoaff won a three set match from

distiet surprise to Michigan support-
ers and it is probable that these two
racket stars will have another oppor-
tunity to settle their struggle for su-
premacy, in the Big Ten champion-
ship tournament at Chicago.
The score of the match was 6-0,

played by- O'Connell who took no

unable to regain his stride.o
Stephens fell to Bard in straight
sets 0-4, 6-2. The Illinois man played
well, again using the chop. Clark also
proved to be a master of the soft ball
game, his chops scarcely rising from
the ground. Vose was unable to cope
with such a game and lost 6-1, 6-1.
Coach tCahn failed to bring his fifth
singles player, so Michigan vent into
the doubles with the odds heavily
against them, the best they could hope
for being a tie. Krickbaum and
Crane played number two and won
from Clark and Bard in easy fashion
C after a struggle in the first 'set. The
score was 8-6, 6-1.
Vose and Stephens started well
against O'Connell and Shoaff, the II-
lini aces, piling up a 3-0 lead only to
lose five straight games and finally
the match, 6-4, 6-3. The Illinois pair
were especially effective on the over-
head game, and smashed with deadly
power in decided contrast to the Mich-
igan players who seemed unable to
"put the ball away" when they came
to the net.

Prepare For Dual U l IIIIVIIVItI L L
Meet With IlliniEf SPIGWR
Michigan's Varsity track team was
given a day of rest yesterday, and to-
day will begin intensive training forI
the third dual meet of the outdoor sea-
son with Illinois here on May 22.
Coach F'arrell was well satisfied.
I withthe performance of the men
against Ohio State Saturday, althoughI
the points in some of the events did
not go quite as he expected them to.'
The Buckeyes showed their strength
on the track when they gathered 38
markers to 34 for Michigan in the
In Illinois th'e team will meet a more
balanced squad than anything they
have yet come across this season. The
Suckers are not dependent on several
individual stars to pull them through
a meet, but possess an array of men
in many events that should give Mich-
igan a tough battle when the two
teams meet a week from Saturday. !
In winning a triangular meet from:
Notre Dame and Ohio Wesleyan at;
South. Bend two weeks ago Coach
Gill's men showed their strength by ,
taking eight first places, and not
placing below a second in any of the.
events on the program. In this meet,
Lyons, star shot putter, shattered all
existing Carter field records in hisI
event, when he heaved the ball 46 feet
1 1-2 inches.
Schock and Wallace were two other
Illini performers who broke records,
the former taking the quarter mile run
in :49.4 seconds, and the latter win-I
ning the broad jump with a leap of 23
feet 1 1-2 inches.
The outstanding performer on the
Illinois squad is Captain Werner, who
along with Guthrie of Ohio State, can
be placed with the best hurdlers that
have ever been developed at college.
W'terner can negotiate the 120 highs in
under 15 seconds, andthas gone under
24.4 for the 220 lows. He is a sureI
point man in any meet and like Guth-
rie can be counted on to score ten
points in the hurdle events on May

player and hammerthrower has re-
ported at the University of Nebraska
to take up the post of line coach on
the Husker grid team.
