relative strength of the Michigan
and Illinois Track teams.
Rain Forces Squad To Indulge In.
Only Light Practice; Oosterbaan
is Leading hitter
TEAM :IS BATTING .311
Rain yesterday afternoon forced
the Michigan baseball squad to con-
fine its efforts to a short session of
throwing the ball around on the cin-
ders outside the field house. This af-
ternoon Coach Fisher will send the
team through a final workout before
leaving for Chicago.
The Wolverines will leave tonight
for a two day trip to Evanston and
Madison where they will play two
Conference opponents. Northwestern
is scheduled to meet the Michigan
nine on Friday, while Wisconsin will
provide the opposition on Saturday.
The personnel of the squad to make
the trip will be announced today.
Perfect Record Looms
Bennie Oosterbaan, premier first
baseman and occasional .pitcher, is.
leading the Wolverine hitters, batting
at a .455 clip. As a team the Maize
and Blue players are batting for -a
.311 average, in Big Ten games, which
is good for a team in any league.
Michigan's place in the Conference
standings with eight victories against
no defeatscauses the optimists to
consider the chances for a perfect;
record for the season. In 1923 the
Wolverine nine did not meet defeat
during the Conference season, win-
ning all its games. Northwestern, Wis-
consin, and Ohio State ( two
games) are the obstacles that the 1928
team must hurdle in order to dupli-
cate the feat of the1923 team.
'MICHIGAN BATTING AVERAGES
Illinois should garner a majority
of the points in the several weight
events, largely because of the ability
of a single individual, .Dan. Lyon, who
is one of the best all-around weight-
men the Big Ten has produced in

whose performances during the past
season have stamped them as out-

Olympic team-Orval Martin, Purdue's
middle distance runner; Wilmer Rine-
hart, Indiana's javelin thrower, and
Jack Elder, the Notre Dame flyer.
With all three m-en in the best of
form, record-breaking performances
are expected, and one of the greatest
crowds of track enthusiasts that has
ever attended a state meet is antici-

certain to score heavily in this
IIAM ER TIROW
This is the only one of the weight
events in which the Wolves are cer-
,tan of first place. With Ketz throw-
ing the hammer around the 160 foot
mark, Illinois' only possiblities are
a second or a third.
The Fa rrellmen may even make
it a slam, if Williamas and .31-
Arthur can equal their past per-
forn"ces, because both have
heaved it over 1, feet, and the
former has broken 141.

INJURHIES TO- TWO MEN.
WEAKEN TRACK SQUADI
KINNEY WILL BE READY
Injuries to two men counted cer-
tain point winners in the Illiuois-
Michigan dual track meet this Satur-
day have further decreased the Wol-
verines' already too slim chances off
adding a fourth to their unbroken
string of victories over the Sucker
The latest blow to the Maize and
Blue hopes came in Tuesday's prac-_
tice when Richard Chapman, prem-
ier Wolverine broad jumper, pu-
himself out of competition for the
rest of the year by reinjuring a ten-
don which he pulled before the Har-
vard meet. Besides being rated equal-
ly with Simons of Illinois in the broad
jump, Chapman was entered in the"
sprints, in which be appeared the
most likely Wolverine prospect be-
fore his first leg injury.
A slightly sprained ankle will keep
another of Michigan's expected point
winners, Waldo, out of the Illini
meet. Waldo, the Wolverines' steadiest
high jumper, showed the most pro-
mise in thesHarvard meet when he
wvent up to six feet without touching
the bar before spiking his hand on
his last jump. Since then he has been
doing 5:10 and over consistently.
Michigan will be well represented
on the United States Olympic wrestl-
ing team this year if the hopes of
Coach Keen and ten of the best
wrestlers on the campus are realized
at the national meet for Olympic try-
outs to be held at Grand Rapids, July.

These mnen are working out every
day at Yost field house under the
tutelage of Coach Keen and will con-
tinue intensive training from the
close of school until the national
meet. Among their ranks are found
Conference and national champions
as well as second and third placers.
The only heavyweight preparing for
this meet is Ed. George who, while he
has not seen active competition with
the Varsity, is considered among the
)e'st in school and should stand a
ine show at Grand Rapids. Donahue
nil Dougovitto will enter the 158

stiff competition to the other candi-
lates for the Olympic team. Don-
ahoe has seen three years of Varsity
competition and annexed two Con-
ference championships, one in 1926
and one in 1927.
In the 145-pound class, Michigan
will be represented by Sauer, who aso
has three years of Varsity competi-
tion and one Conference champion-
ship to his credit, and Kelley, another
rood man in his weight who recently

Watson and Thomas are training for
the 135 pound class. In his first ap-
pearance at an all-Conference meet in
1927, Watson won;the Confei'ence title
in his weight. This year Thoma,, took
third 'place in the national -meet
against the best in the country.

this year and placed second in the
national meet will enter the meet in
