COACH, K I P K E RETURNS
Two regularly contested games to
be played today at ,Ferry field will
mark the opening of the round robin
'tournan,-nut for the spring football
championship. Coach Gectrge Veen-
her's "Illinois" eleven will encounter
Coach Clifford Keen's "Wisconsin"
team in the first half of the inaugural
and "Michigan State," under Coach
Harry Kipke, will oppose the "Iowa"

squad, directed by 'Coach Jim Miller.
"Illinois," with Truskowski and
Boden at the ends, Auer and Walder
at the tackles, Steinke and Poe at
the guards, Schang at center, and
Geistert, Gembis, McBride, and
Schwarze in the backfield, is gener-
ally conceded a slight edge over the
field which includes si:e teams.
Mdpke Returned Yesterday
Coach Kipke, who returned yester-
day from East Lansing where he has
been occupied for the past three
weeks in training the real Michigan
State squad, directed his pseudo-
"Spartans" through a signal drill in
a first and last effort to make themi
able to cope with Coach Miller's
"Hawkeyes."
The "State" lineup which will pro-
bably lye employed today consists of.
Foster, Slater, Schurrer, Crego,
George, Keene, and Smith, in order
from end to end, with Holmes, Gun-
dry, Dobbin, and Mitchell in the back
field.
Coach Miller's opposition .will be
cozynposed of ends Dietle and Brown,
tackles Cragin and Toth, guardis,
Desenberg and Weil, center jurt,
and backs Brown, Wiltse, McCor-
mick, and Gross. This group,
"Iowa," contains the . fewest. exper-
ienced gridmen of any of the s six
s quads.
"I1lInojs" Strong
In contrast with this last team.,
Coach Veenker's "Illini" who are to
meet Coach Keen's "Badgers" in the
feature battle of 'the program today,
number several winners of both in-in-
or and major Varsity awards as well
as of freshma-n insignia.
Undaunted by 'the array of talent
in the rival lineup, "Wisconsin" does1
not expect to be hopelessly outclas-
sed. The green "'Cardinals" suppos-,
edly representing the Madison insti-
tntion, include some of the stars of
the yearling squad in such as Thorn-
ton and Cook.

Michigan held first place in the
Conference standings yesterday as the
result of a ninth inning Wisconsin
rally which netted five runs and gave
the Badgers a 5-2 victory over the
hitherto undefeated Illinois team. The
uckers, who tied for last year's title,
wer'e relegated to a tie for second
place with Indiana by this defeat.
Iowa handed the Northwestern
squad its fifth straight Conference de-
feat Monday at E~vanston, and moved
along with the Badgers into ' a tie
for third place with two games won
and one lost. Minnesota dropped its
second Big Ten game in as many
starts to the Boilermakers at Lafay-
ette Monday, 6-2, and went into - a
tie for the next to cellar position
with the Buckeyes, who have also
lost their first two Conference games.

Joe Genibis
Sophomore back on last fall's grid
team, who is participating in spring
practice on Ferry field. Gembis is a
member of Coach George Veenker's
"Illinois" team in the spring football
series. His line plunging is expect-
ed to aid the "Illini" considerably.

chosen Ben Ferrier as Captain for

ienced wrestler, and should prove a
capable leader for the McKusick
squad.

University, br-ke the existing world's
record for the 175-yard dash yester-
day on Ferry field when he covered
the distance in :f.2 seconds, two-
tenth's of a second under the record
established by Charles Paddock of
California at the Penn relays Saturday
in Philadelphia.
Three timers-Coaches Steve Far-
rell, Charles Hoyt, and assistant
manager Richard Gretch-recorded
the same time for the former Scotch
champion's performance. Robb was
running alone when '4e smashed the
present record, and this is a remark-
able feature of the sensational per-
formance.
The wind, which attained high vel-
ocity at times during the afternoon,
died down when Robb was *reaking
the record.
Tryout .For Olyiile(s
Robb is a candidate-for the Olympic
team of the British empire, and his
brilliant performance yesterday en-
hanced his cebances for making it.1
Coaches Farrell and Hoyt are confi-
dent that Robb is capable of equalling
the present world's record in the 300-
yard dash, ahd will try him in that
event soon.
After recovering his composure fol-
lowing Robb's record-smashing feat,
Coach Farrell renewed the prepara-
tion of' hiss track squad for the meet
with Ohio .State Saturday at Colum-
bus. Coach Farrell, in commenting on
the impending meet with .the Buck-
eyes, said that the meet will be a
close one, with the breaks deciding
the winner.
Tracknien Pid Trials
Trials in the quarter-mile and all
the field events will be held this after-
noon in order to determine the men
who will represent the Wolverine
team in those events on Saturday.
Munger and Seymour will fight it out
in the quarter mile in the first trial
event at 3:30 o'clock.
Coach Farrell is everything but
pleased with the showing of the Var-
sity men in -the field events against
the freshman squad last Saturday. The
performances, he said, were the worst
he had ever seen in any college og
university. Only a revisal in form
will enable the Wolverines tto win
over the Buckeyes in the field event 3

rook's tim "f : 9.0 in the 4'0--
yard run was the outstanding bit of
work turned in by the freshmen a-
gainst the Varsity reserves. With
further development, Cook should be-
come a real threat in his specialty.
The meet also revealed a potential
strength in the hamrner event. Pat-
ton took third place finishing behind
McArthur and Williams of the Vars-
ity. Pottle's showing in the pole
vault was also encouraging.
Leg injuries which continue to
keep Tollan and Captain Benson
from active work will handicap the
yearlings still further in the meet
with the S'carlet and Grey freshmen.
The meet is scheduled to start at
2:30, the field events starting at that
hour, with the track events schedul-
ed for 3 o'clock.
ALDERMAN TO TRY FOR
PADDOCK'S DASH RECORD
(By Associated Press)
EAST LANSING, May 1-Fred Ald-
erman, former captain of the Michi-
gan State track team, will attempt to
set a new world's record in the 175
yard dash here Saturday afternoon
according to an announcement made
today by Coach Ralph Young.
The present mark for the distance
is 17.4 seconds and was made by
Charlie Paddock at the Penn Relays
last Saturday. Alderman, a promi-
nent candidate for the Olympic team,
believes he can displace this in fav-
orable weather.
Charles Brennan, president of the
Michigan A. A. U. has been invited
to supervise the timing in order that
a record would be official if made.
Alderman will race against several
varsity and freshman sprinters. The
event will be a part of the dual track
meet between State and Detroit City
college.
MEXICO CITY-With but nine golf
courses in the whole country, Mexi-
co ranks about the lowest of the na-
tions in the popularity of golf.

Bill McAfee
Michigan pitcher, who will leave
for the East with Coach Fisher's base-
ball squad today. McAfee is expected
to start on the mound in one of the
game's against Colgate. He ,iholds
,shut out victories over Purdue and
Indiana to his credit so far this sea-
son.
SMITH ISSUES CHI .LEDI
(By Associated Pres)
NEW YQRK, May ;-0n behalf of
its crack pro, MacDonald Smith, the
Lakeville' golf and country club, of
Great Neck, Long lsland, has chal-
longed Archie Compston, long-driv-
ing Britisher, to a 72-hole exhibition
match.

M'AFEE TOIIURU OPENER
Following a short workout this aft-
ernoon the Wolverine baseball squad,
consisting of 13 players, Coach Ray
Fishe n and Manager Jim McKillen,
will entrain at G o'clock on a three
game eastern invasion which calls
for two contests with Colgate tomor-
row and Friday at Hamilton and one
with Harvard Saturday, at Cambridge.
Due *to the illness of Bud Morse,
veteran second baseman who will be
unable to make the trip, Coach Fish-
er has been forced to alter his inner
defense, shifting Red Corriden to se-
cond. The position is not new to
Coriden as he played in the infield
during his high school career.
Outfield Changed
The personnel of the Wolverine con-
tingent includes Captain Loos, Corri-
den, Oosterbaan, and Weintraub, in-
fielders; McAfee, Asbeck, and Gawne,
pitchers; McCoy and Reichman, catch-
ers; Lange, Nebelung, and Straub,
outfielders; and Squier, utility man.
The shift that sent Corriden to se-
cond also caused the Michigan Coach
to change his outfield combination,
Lange moving to left field while
Straub will probably occupy his for-
mer, berth in right. The makeup of
the squad gives Coach Fisher five
pitchers in case they are needed as
.both Oosterbaan and Nebelung are
qualified to take a turn in the box.
VarsIty Defeats Frosh
Yesterday's practice tilt with Coach
Jack Blott's freshmen ended in a 6-5
victory for the Varsity in five innings.
Holtzman was in the box for the
regulars and held the yearlings help-
less for three innings, striking out
five of them. Krisbe started on the
(Continued on Page Seven)

Since Michigan journeys to east to
meet Colgate and Harvard this week
end, she will retain her position atI
the top of the standings at least un-
til the Badger invasion on April 7.
Illinois meets the weak Ohio State
team in a two game series on Friday
and Saturday and should annex both
encounters to take undisputed posses-
sion of second place.
Indiana plays at Iowa Saturday in
a game which will put either of the
losers out of the immediate race. The,
Hawks, who tied for last year's cham-
pionship, dropped a ten iniAng game,
to the Wolverines eairly in the sea-
son for their only defeat, and a vie-
tory Saturday will put. them well in
the running with a .750 percentage.j
Purdue should bring its average upa
to .500 when it invades Evanston to
meet the Purple cellar occupants Sat-
rday. The Illini-toppling Badgers
vill play host to Chicago on the samec
day.
