Purduie, victorious in evey one of
its pre-Conference practice tilts and
loser in its only Big Ten game against
Illinois, co-holder of the 1927 Western
Cgnference title with Iowa, will be
Mliigan's second Conference oppon-
ent in two days today at 4:05 o'clock
on south Ferry field.
The Boilermakers follow here imme-
diately in the wake of Northwestern,
hom, the Maize and Blue diamond-
men defeated yesterday. Iowa and
Illinois, both of whom age again con-
sidered for this year's championship
of the Big Ten, will appear here on
the ultra-heavy first-week schedule of
the Wolverines on Friday and Satur-
day.
Bollermakers Show Early Form 1
With the remarkable playing dis-
played in their pre-season victories,
the Boilermakers are expected to
cause the Wolverines considerable dif-
ficulty in their determined march to
a Big Ten championship.
Coach V. E. Lambert will pit a for-
midable line-up against the Wolver-
ines this afternoon, containing no less
than seven veterans of last year's
nine. Maxton, Plack, Ilarmeson, Kem-
mer, Wilcox, Rabe, and Ieberer are
the lettermen of last season's
team who will start against the Maize
and Blue.
Capltain Is Star Hurler
Maxton, cne of the outstanding
pitchers in the Big Ten during the
past two seasons, is slated to ascend
the mound to face the Wolverine bats-
men today. Maxton, who is captain
of Coach Lambert's team, is gener-
ally regarded as the nucleus around
Which the defense of Purdue is built.1
In the recent game against Illinoist.
Maxton allowed six hits, but miserablei
fielding and inability of his teammates
to hit at opportune times enabled the
Illini to win, 5 to 0. Coach Lambert
has a wealth of reserve hurling ma-
terial in Davies and Gross, two vet-
erans, and Meyers and Speider, sopho-
mores.
The same infield that represented
the Boilermakers will perform against
the Wolverines today. Rabe will be
stationed at the initial sack, Wilcox
will be at second base, Kemmer, an
outstanding player in the Big Ten
last year, will guard the region at
shortstop, and Wheeler will cavort at
third base.
'TJW(o Veterims In Outfieldl
Two more veterans will be in the
outfeld. Harmeson, already famed for
his stellar laying on the Purdue bas-
ketball and football teams, and Plock
are the two members of last year's
nine, who will play in right and cen-
ter field respectively. Mallick will
probably be Coach Lambert's choice
for right field. It is expected that
Eickman will be named for the back-
stop position.
Asbeck, who performed brilliantly
on the Wolverines' training jaunt
tlhrougl the South, will probably be
named for mound duty against Purdue
by Coachi Ray L. Fisher. The re-
mgindei7 of the Michigan line-up will
be the same as that which faced the
Wildcats yesterday.

SAMSON STARS
IN A. A. U. SWIM
CHAMPIONSHIPS
Paul (Buck) Sa-i:n;on, captain of
the 1927 Michigan swimming team,
proved to be one of the stars of thel
National A. A. U. championships held
in Chicago recently. Samson swam
on two wining relay teams that es-
tablished new world's records, and
placed in three individual events.
In the 500 yard swim, Samson took
second to Johnny Weissmuller. John-
ny Hawkins, former Princeton star
and now enrolled in the law school
here, placed third in this event. Sam-
son also finished third to Weissmul-
Ier and Laufer in both the 100 and
220 yard free style races. He de-
feated Walter Kojac, sensational
New York swimmer, in both these
events.
The Illinois A. C. quartet compos-
ed of Weissm-uller, Samson, Hallar-
han, and Miller established new
'world's records in the 400 andl 500
yard relays for p short pool, displac-
ing the mark set by the Michigan at
Grand Rapids in February for the
latter distance. The I. A. C. trio of
Weissmuller, Samson, and Peterson
also won the 300 yard medley relay,
setting a new world's record.
Illinois A. C. won the right to re-
present the United States in the
Olympic games capturing the water
1polo 'champion ship. Samson was a
mcniber of this team and will make
the trip to Amsterdam. The I A. C.
defeated the Olympic cli t)of San
Francisco in the finals.
EARL SMITH IS LOST TO

Pitsburgh, April 16.-(AP)-Earl
Smith, chattering backstop of the
Pittsburgh Pirates is lost to the team
for at least 10 days. A badly sprung
leg tendon and ruptured blod ves-
sel caused him to be sent here from
Cincinnati to recover.
Smith was injured Saturday when
down by Dressen. Gooch relieved
he attempted to field a hunt laid
him at the time and later Dr. William

At the hands of the Chicago
vhite Sox, the St. Louis Americans
suffered their first defeat of the
year. Yesterday, while Thomas was
blanking the Browns the Pale Hose
leaped on three St. Louis pitchers
and achieved a 7-0 victory, their first
win of the year. Thomas aided in the
batting driving the ball into the
stands for a hore run.
Detroit dropped the last gane of
the series to Cleveland, 5-4, while
Washington duplicated the score
against Philadelphia, Goslin clouiting
out a homer in the 7th inning. New
York took the top rung from St.
Louis by inflicting a 7 to 2 setback
on Boston. Gehrig got No. 2 in his
1928 home run campaign.
In the National circuit, the New
York Giants found the Phillies to be
a stumbling block and lost 7 to 5,
their first loss of the new season.
However, they stilltretained first
place as St. Louis bowed to Chicago
6 to 5 in an abbreviated game, while
Brooklyn dropped a game to Boston
3 to 2. Pittsburgh showed a revival
of cham'pionship form and upset Ciii-
cinnati 8 to 1.

WINTRY WEATHER
MARKS OPENING
OF 1928 SEASON
Amidst icy blasts and snow flurries,
the American and National. league
clubs swung into action for the 1928
campaign last week. Boston and
Washington stole a march on thej
other teams by opening .a day earlier
at Washington in order that President
Coolidge might throw out the first
ball. By virtue of .their 7-5 victory,
the Red Sox held undisputed leader-
ship of the American league for the
first time in many years, even if only
for a day.

LANGE LEADS BATTERS
Coach Ray L. Fisher's 1928 troupe
of 15 Wolverine diamond stars de-
toured through the South long enough
to capture five of the seven games
played and to impress Dixie with some
real baseball talent.
Even in the matter of fielding, in
which department the Michigan nine
was guilty of 23 errors, the Wolver-
ines outplayed their rivals according
to the final reckoning, while in all
other branches of the game they were
far and away superior to what the
South had to offer. As a team Mich-
igan batted well over .290 to score 47
runs, 19 more than that tallied by the
opposition.
Rainy weather greeted the Wolver-
ines at their first stopping place, Cin-

WEATHER HANDICAPS
VARSITY TRACK TEAdM
Allows Only One Outdoor Practice;
Squad To Coipete At Ohio
Relays Saturday
WILL HOLDTRIALS TODAY
Unfavorable weather conditions and
the failure of workmen to complete
the alterations on the Ferry field track
neces'sitated by the construction of
the new Intramural Sports building
prevented the Wolverine trackmeu
from accomplishing much in the line
of outdoor practice during the holi-
day season.
The alterations on the track, which
included a widening of the south side
to accommodate the sprint and hurdle
events and slight changes of the
curves, were not complete until Sat-
urday when Coach Stephen J. Far-
rell sent hi's charges through their
first intensive outdoor drill of the sea-
son.
'Wind hampers Runners
Although the men were able 'to do
some outdoor work, they were serious-
ly bandicapi~pedl by unfavorable weath-
er throughout the entire week. On
Saturday ,a strong wind hampered the
runners in every event, the best time
the half milers were able to regi'ster
being 2:12.+
The strength of the Michigan team
still remains largely problematical as
a result of the lack of outdoor prac-
tice, especially with regard to the
broad jump, the discus, and the
javelin throws. The hammer will be
well taken care of by Ketz and Wil-
liams, who have been showing 'steady
improvement since the beginning 'of
the outdoor work.
Fieldmen Practice Indoors
Thus far the work of the pole vault-
ers and the broad jumpers has been
confined to the field house. The ex-
treme cold weather has also prevent-
ed the javelin and discus candidates
from doing any intensive practice for
fear of imiuring their arms.
Coach Farrell will be forced to rely
upon this week's- drills to whip the
squad into shape for the first event
on the outdoor card, the Ohio Relays
J Saturday at Columbus. The trials to
determine the personnel of the Wol-
verine squad will be held tomorrow,
and the size of the contingent will de-
pend entirely upon the showing of the
men at that time.
