Five ConsecutIve Victories Entrench
Coach Fisher's Team Only One
Half Game FromF irst
Counted out of the Conference race
three weeks ago as the result of three
defeats in its first four starts, Mich-
igan's baseball team has proved its
right to the championship considera-
tion that it received before the Big
Ten season opened by winning five
straight games in its uninterrupted
climb from seventh position in the
standings to second, just half a game
out offirst place.
Michigan's record of winning five
straight games seems all the more
remarkable when it is remembered
that three of the fivercontests were
shutouts and the opponents only gain-
ed one run in each of the others.
Furthermore, against teams of the cal-
ibre ,of: Illinois,. Iowa, Wisconsin,
Northwestern and Ohio, Wolverine pit-
chers have allowed only one run in
39 innings of. play.
Gohd Road Trip
Last week's trip was marked by two
additional demonstrations of the Mich-
igan team's ability to win consistently
on the road, The successes at Evan-
ston and Madison, besides giving tire
Wolverines a clean slate for the six;
Big Ten contests played away fromI
home this season, were marked by the
best playing that the team has turned
in this year. l
Against Northwester'n the team com-
blued excellent ritching with error-
less play in the field and timely hit-
hing to avenge their early season de-
feat at the hands of the Purple. Ac-
cording to Coach Fisher, the team
turned in one of the best fielding ex-'
hibitions of the year.
Asbeck Allows One Hit
Fred Asbeck, sophomore pitcher
who won his second victory of the
sea'son, cannot be accorded too much
credit for Michigan's decisive victory.I
The story of his excellent hurling is3
told by the fact that only 29 batters
faced him during the nine innings that
he worked. Pitching against one of the
hardest hitting outfits in the Con-
ference, Asbeck allowed only one hit,
a blow off the bat of Panosh which


Coach Ray Fisher
was nearly converted into an out by
Neblung who barely missed making a
Panosh with a hit on the play. ,
Coach Fisher characterized Satur-
day's 12 inning battle at Madison as
one of the best played college games
difficult catch. The scorers credited
he has ever seen. Wisconsin, accord-
ing to the Wolverine coach, looked like
th'e best ball team that Michigan has
encountered this year.
Sensational Gaine
The game was marked by sensa-
tional pitching, fielding, and hitting
on the part of both teams. During the
x,12 closely contested innings three men
were thrown out on plays at home'
plate. In ethe second inning, Larson,
big Badger centerfielder, speared, a
line drive that looked like a certain
hit in his bare hand and made a per-
fect throw to the plate where Barnumj
tagged Captain Puckelwartz coming in
from third. Michigan's infield contri-
buted an equally good bit of fielding
in the eighth inning by completing a
fast double play to nip a Badger ral-
With three Conference contests still
remaining on its schedule, the Mich-
igan team has an opportunity to fin-
ish the season in first place, providing
Minnesota is defeated in one of the
five contests remaining on its sche-

Track TeamShows 5
Well In Ohio Meet1
Besides winning 11 of the possible
15 first places from the Ohio State
track squad Saturday at Columbus,
Coach Stephen J. Farrell's Wolverines
extended the Buckeyes~to the utmost'
in the other four events.
Michigan was forced to taste defeat
in the 220 yard dash, 220 yard low
hurdles, 880 yard run, and the mile,
but in all four of these contests the
Scarlet and Gray runners recorded
excellent times.
In the mile, while the lone Wolver-
ine entrant, Monroe, was struggling
to stay in the race, Wyckoff and Loo-i
mis staged a brilliant duel to cross
Ithe tape in a dead heat in 4:24 2-5,.
the fastest mile ever run in the Col-
umbus stadium. Coach Farrell assert-
ed after the race that Wyckoff appear-
ed capable of covering the distance in
.":20 even, or a little better."
In the low hurdles Cooper, Wolver-
ine star, met his master among Con-
ference contenders for the first time
this year in Irwin, whom he had con-
quered in April at Columbus. Irwin
was timed in :23.7, displacing the old
dual meet mark of :24 set first in
1922 by McCreery, Ohio, and later
tied by Guthrie, also of Ohio.
Michigan's trio of hurdlers passed
the Buckeye throughout the entire
distance, Tarbil leading until the
eighth barrier where he stumbled and
lost his stride. Cooper, fully five yards
behind th'e entire field at the third
hurdle, gradually regained his own
stride and almost overtook Irwin at
the tape, leading his mate across the
line. All three of the men who placed
were tined in less than :24:
! Hornberger gave another sterling
erhibition in the two mile to defeat
Kennedy, Buckeye ace and former Big
TOn champion. Kennedy started with a
rush obviously with the intention ofI
wearing the Wolverine down i order
to prevent him from opening with his
terrific sprint which has carried him
to victory in all of his Conferencej
At the end of the third lap, Horn-
berger was fully 50 yards in the rear,
but the Ohio runner was forced to let
down his pace. He allowed the Mich-
igan ace to overtake him, but Horn-
berger refused to set the pace. Then
came Hornberger's customary sprint
and Kennedy was outclassed.

Competition among Wolverine teams
for I he honor of annexing the fifth
Big Ten championship of the year for
Michigan is almvost as keen as that be-
tween the Maize and Blue and the
other Conference teams. The track-I
men aspire to turn the trick Satur-
day at Madison, but the tennis team
hopes to win its matches with Il-
linois and Northweston today and
tomorrow, and thus beat them to it.
The netien bimve not been de-
feated this season and have won
successively over. Osio State,
Nilmnesot a, Wisconisin and ;C li-
cago. No,other team in the (o-
fcrenee has kept its slate clean
olt onyough Minnesota. and Illinois
have lost only one itch. A vic-
tory over Illini today will prac-
tically cinch the dual meet title
-for the Wolverines as iNorhesJ.
er is 4ot considered exceptionally
Algyer or Goldsmith of Michigan,
Fremont of Wisconsin, and Bard of
Illinois are number two men worth
lEven if defeated by the Orange
and Brue netnien, the Wolverines
are assured of a tie for the title
if they-defeat Northwestern. 'ni
that case the Wolverines will have
won front five'of six opponents as
will the Illini. And, too, the Go-
phers have only met one defeat.
Then as a climax, the Western Con-
ference individual championships will
be decided in the tourney Thursday,
Friday and Saturday at Chicago-and
therein the Maize and Blue netn.en
will be a foremost contender for their
title. A departure from former tourna-
ments will be made this time as eachl
school will be limited to two entries!
in singles and one doubles team.
Formerly each school was allowed two

doubles teanms and four singles play-
With Horace Barton and either
Durwin Algyer or Joe Goldsmith
playing the singles, and the Bar-
ton-Moore combination pliying
doubles, )fichigan lasnan excel-
lent chance to win both individual
titles. .Neither Barton, Algyer nor
Goldsmith has met defeat this
year in Conference competition
and the Barton-Moore doubles
combiliination also has a clean slate.
Barton ranks number one without
dispute, but Algyer and Goldsmith
have had a merry battle for the nuni-
ber two place with Algyer havingI
the call in the last few matches. T13e
showing of these two men at Illinois
will determine which one will play in
the Conference meet.
Today's niatch, between O'Con-
nell and Barton will indicate
' ralier clearly what may be ex-l
pected in the Conference singles
tourney. O'Connell won the title
last year and Barton is consider-
ed an outstanding contender for
the honor this year.y
Among the other outstanding play-#
ers in the Conference who are ex-
pected to make a bid for high hon-
ors are Shay of Minnesota, Place ofR
Chicago, and Boldenwick of Wiscon-
sin. Shay lost to Barton, bt only
after a -hard three set struggle.
Place of Chicago has to his
credit a victory over Shay, bit
has lost three set matches to Bar-I
and, and 'O'Connell. O'Connell's
only loss of the season was to
Shay, having defeated Place. On
the basis of comparisons, then,
Barton will have an edge if he
can beat O'Connell, as lie has al-
ready defeated. Shay, Place and

Six of these successes were gained
in major sports while the other five
were attained by th'e tennis and golf
teams. The baseball team added fourj
wins to thy list by successively de-
feating Illinois, Iowa, Northwestern,
and Wisconsin, the first three in shut
out contests.
The track team contributed two
sterling victories to' the list by de-
feating Illinois and Ohio State in dualj
meets on successive Saturdays to keep{
its dual meet record for the season,
unmarred. The Illini bowed to the
Wolverines, 72-63, while Ohio was
badly beaten Saturday at Columbus,
89 to 46.
Michigan's undefeated tennis team
increased the total to nine by turning
in three victories over the eight day
period. The Wolverines disposed of
their strongest Big Ten opponent, Min-
nesota, 5-4, in a hard fought match,
but Wisconsin and Chicago were shut
out on successive days by scores of
8-0 and 7-0 respectively.
The Wolverine golfers ran their
# string of Conference successes up to
four by scoring victories over North-
western and Ohio State by wide mar-
gins. The Purple were humbled, 21
1-2 to 2 1-2, while the Buckeyes were
only able to glean one point more andj
fell, 20 1-2 to 3 1-2.!
In annexing the 1927 Big Ten bas-
ketball title Michigan won her seventh
successive major sport title.

team will meet Illinois today at Ur-
bana in what is considered the last
hard test of the dual meet season.
I Nortlwestrn will oppose the Wolver-
lines tomorrow. but the Purple are not
{ rated as such a strong team.
Seven Michigan players left- yester-
day on the final road trip of the year
including all the men who have play-
ed in Big Ten matches this year al-
though only five will see service' in
the matches. Captain OUan, Stephens,
Barton, Goldsmith, Algyer, Moore and
Shafer are the men named for the
trip by Coach Hutchins, although it is
probable that neither of the first two
mentioned, the only letter men on the
squad, will play.
Illinois has one of the strongest
teams in the Big Ten, the Indian's only
loss being to the star Gopher netmen
in a close 4-3 match. The Illini are led
by O'Connell, last year's Conference
singles champion, the other four Illi-
nois men being Captain Bard, hoi-
guez, Travis and Clark.
