VITORY OVER INDAN

With Strong Ohio State
Tennis Teals
WON LAST 'YEAR'S MATCH
Victors over Illinois, the strong
Ohio State tennis team will invade
the Ferry filcid courts this afternoon
to ir.,et Coach hutchins Varsity net-
men in their fourth dual match of
the season. Play in the 'singles will
begin at 2:30 *o'clock.
Through a bit of strategy in which
'they juggled titeir lineup, the Buck
eyes conquered the imposing Illini
squad, ,5-4, last week. The regular,
Ohio S'tate number one, two, and,!
three men are reported to have play-
ed in fourth, fifth, and sixth positions,
while the last three Buckeyes played
the three best Illinois netmen. The
doubles 'team also played in reverse
order.
'Varsity Makes Poor Shiwilig
The showing of the Wolverines a-
gainst Illinois last Saturday, when
they lost, by a 7-2 score, may cause
Coach Hutchins lo alter the Michigan
lineup. Several of the Wolverines
were , plainly off form in the Illini
match. Captain Barton and Graham,
who won the lone singles match Sat-l
urday by defeating Park, are the
only players assured of starting in1
the singles against Ohio State.
Lineup is incertain
It is possible that either Bacon or
Brody may replace Heaney. Algyer
Moore, or Schaefer in the singles. The
doubles combinations will be the
sam'e that faced Illinois. Barton and
Moore, Big Ten doubles champions,
will pair together. The other doubles
teams will. be Heaney and Algyer, and
Graham and Brodie.
The Buckeyes will be led by Cap-
tain DuBois against the Wolverines.
Two other veterans, Poppleton and
Patterson, will be in the Ohio State
lineup. Okklebloom, sensational so-
phomore, Looney, and Bacchichis will
be the other players to face the Mich-
igan netmen. Last year Michigan
defeated Ohio State at Columbus, by
a 6-1 score.

Voa i ieiian iStresses ELIigibitity
And Also Introduces Many
ormer Athletes
SCHULTZ IS PRESENT
D. Wyandt Holmes was awarded th
annual Chicago Alumni trophy last
night at the football meeting at the
Union for being the most pronising
Varsity candidate in spring practice.
Ibolmes is a quarterback and won his
numerals last fall as a member of the
freshman team.
The ,meeting was opened by Coach
Tad Wieman who gave a short talk
on the importance of the candidates
remaining eligible. Coach Wieman
said, "If anyone is going to do any
good for himself, for the team, or for
Michigan, he must be eligible."
The feature speaker of the evening
was Meyer Morton, '12L, of the Clii-
cago alumni who presented Holmes
the award. He gave a stirring speech
on Michigan 'fight" and told of th(
interest the Chicago alumni took in
the team both in defeat and victory.
Morton said that this interest was not
only during football' season but
throughout the entire year and that
it was to manifest this interest that,
the trophy was awarded at the close
of every spring training period.
Coach Wieman then introduced sev--
eral former Michigan athletes to the
men. Jim McApree, a former presi-
dent of the "M" club who secondcedi
Wieman's stand on studies. Next was
the incomparable Germany Schul tz.
'09, who was selected by the lte
Walter Camp as center on his all-time
all'-Ameu'ican team.
Bob' Noe of 'the class of '23 was
next introduced. Noe was a former
quarterback and a main cog in the
humbling of the Illini in 1922 by a
24-0 score when he was called from
the sidelines to fill the place of Har-
ry Kipke, injured star and mainstay
of the team. Following Noe, Coach
Wieman presented Herb Steger, cap-
tain c' the 1924 Varsity team who
covered himself with glory for his
fight against Illinois and Red Grange
in 1924.
Director Yost next spoke, and told
of the great coaching staff here and
pleaded with the candidates to prac-
tice and to keep in condition during
the summer. He said that no matter
howv much the coaches told them,

ILLINOIS TRACKMEN HOLD EDGE OVER
WOLVERINE RUNNERS IN FLAT EVENTS

Editor's Note: This is the first
of a series of three articles that
will appear in The Daily compar-
ing the relative strength of the
Michigan and Illinois track teams.
Surveying-the strength of the Wol-
verine and Illini track squads in the
so-called flat events, namely the 100,
220 and 440 yard dashes, and the half
mile, the mile, and the two mile runs,
the Gillmen appear to hold the edge
over their traditional rivals.
X100 YARD I)ASII
While Capt. Hester rates a
strong favorite in the 100 and 220

yard dashes, the other places look
like loss-ups with Grodsky of
Michiaiin and Tinini, hale, Patter-
sei, Wheat on, iaffnan and Lee
of llinois is the liossible phee,

At present Tinun looks like Coach
Gill's best bet in the century. Her
finished second to Stamats of Iowa
last week in a :01.1 race at Iowa City.
Hale ran. the 100 in :09.8 two years
ago, but-hasn't approached this time
since.

Reigh Count has finished first four

Two other big western rivals tha¬ę

can be accepted, seem to favor Reigh
Count over his other contestants.
Victorian, winner of the rich Preak-,
ness last Friday and believed to
have a good chance in the Derby, was
suddenly withdrawn and entered in
the Withers stakes at Belmont in-
stead. Close followers of the racing
sport were hoping that Victorian
would face the barrifer Saturday to
see whether the old jinx which has
prevented horses from winning both1
the Preakness and the Derby could
not be broken.

ASHT.BULA, Ohio, May 15.-C. C.
"Cross Country" Pyle's blistered bun-
ions hit the pavement today from
Erie, Pa., 45 miles eastward and au-
other day nearer New. York and 'the
final 'terminus of the longest trek
ever attempted by a group of ath-
letes.
Andrew Payne, Claremore, Okla.,
who has covered the 2,845.1 miles
from Los Angeles in 469:39:10 to
hold first place in the field of 55, blaz
ed the trail, from Arrowhead yester-
day, with John Salo, Passaic, N. J7,
who holds second place, 21 hours, 49
minutes and 27 seconds behind him.
Both 'covered the 41.1 miles in 5:50-
:48, 37 minutes, 21 seconds ahead of
Phillip Granville, Hamilton, Okla., and
Louis Perrella, Albany, N. Y., who
tied: for third.
Perrella moved from sixth to fifth
place to displace his countryman,
Guisto Umek, champion of Italy.
The 55 athletes who re'main in the
Pyle pack are an increasing source
of wonderment to the thousands whq,
view them daily. Tanned and with
their hair bleached by exposure, the
men are questioned on their physical
ehdurance from the time they start
for control points until they retire
for the night.
Jack Quinn, one of the few famous
spitballers still in existence, plays
baseball under a false name. His
right name is Jack Quinn Picus.
Walter and Stephenson are consid-
ered to be the best 440 men ii n'the

Gentlenen:j
I have always wanted to smoke a
pipe. After several attempts I gave
my "taste" up; for with each trial I'
got a blistered tongue.
One evening, when looking over a
certain outdoor magazine, I read that
a certain fis.ierman could catch more
fish when using "Edgeworth," so I
decided I would try "his" tobacco-
for I am no poor fisherman!
The next day I tried to secure Edge-
worth. T'ae local country storekeeper,
did not have it, so I sent by a friend to
the city for my first Edgeworth. Two
things have happened: I still smoke
Edgeworth, and the local storekeeper
always has a supply.
