Track Events
WOLVES LEAD IN DASH
Coach Bresnahan's Iowa track-
men, still smarting under two for-
mer. setbacks, will invade Ferry
field this afternoon to oppose the
Wolverines in the first dual meet
of the outdoor season. Victories in
the Conference indoor meet and
the Drake relays make the Hawks
favorites to hand the underdog
Maize and Blue team its first de-
feat in Iowa-Michigan cinder path
history.
The Wolverines chalked up a
19 1-2-62 1-2 victory in their 1926
Iowa City invasion, and in the 1927
meet at Ann 'Arbor, after trailing
for the first eleven events, came
back to swore a slam in the half
mile and the hammer throw and
emerge on the long fend of a 18-57
count.

however, the Conference title-
holding Iowans are expected to an-
nex their first victory at the ex-
pense of the Wolverines today.
While the two teams rate nearly
equally in the track events, withI
Michigan, even holding a slight
edge due to supremacy in the dash-
es, the Hawkeye domination of
the broad jump and pole vault with
equal ratings in the other field
events appears sufficient to give
the Old Gold and Black a scant'
margin of victr.
The dashes are expected to prove
Michigan's strongest events, as the
Wolverine trio of Tolan, Grodsky,
and Murray should outclass Pape,
Stamats, and Stevenson. Tolan
has been a consistent placer in
both indoor and outdoor meets,
and is rated a sure winner in both
the 100 and 200 yard events.
Iowa May Take 440
If Coach Bresnahan decided to
enter Baird, Olympic 440 star, in
either event, another place may
go to Iowa, as the Hawkeye has
covered the 100 in 9.9 seconds and
the 200 in 21.5. Stamats, who
placed in the 1928 Conference meet,
is expected to gain points in the
220, and may take a third in thej
100.

team, winner of this event at the
Conference indoor and Drake
meets, are favored to annex a ma-
jority of the points in the 440 yard
run. With Baird, Hawkeye Olym-
pic star, expected to win and
Stevenson and Ferguson, Iowa
should take two places from the
fast Wolverine trio of the Seymour
twins, Dale, and Dalton, and1

State Tennis Match
Has Been Cancelled
Continued inclement weather
forced the cancellation of the ten-
nis match scheduled for this after-
noon at East, Lansing between the
Varsity netmen and Michigan State
it was announced yesterday after-
noon by Coach Ray Courtwright.
This leaves the Varsity without a
'match this week with the excep-
tion of the Drake four man encoun-
ter last Monday which the Wolver-
ines won by a 5-1 count. The
Courtwright coached team will
play host to Indiana here Monday
on the Ferry field courts.
Weather conditions so far this
season have been most unfavorable
to the interests of the netmen.
More than the usual amount of
rain and high winds have been the
lot of the court enthusiasts and a
type of play which would ensure
an approximation to mid-season
form has been impossible.
The cancellation of the Colgate
and State matches has also come
as a blow. While the ability of
the New Yorkers is practically un-
known Staterisbelieved to boast a
strong team this year and the
Michigan netmen had hoped for
some valuable competitive play.
Swan, Pennington, and Jennings
all playing for the Spartans this
year have shown an improved style
of play and should have been able
to make things interesting for the
Wolverines.
Tankmen Are Given
Gold Watch Charms
Fifteen members of Michigan's
Conference championship swim-
ming team were awarded gold
watch charms Thursday night at
a banquet marking the conclusion
of a successful season. Director
Fielding H. Yost made the presen-
tation. The Varsity lettermen re-
ceiving the charms were Captain
Spindle, captain-elect Ault, Hub-
bell, Bailey, Seager, Watson, Mc-
Donald, Walker, Walaitis, Reif,;
Goldsmith, Thompson, Mertz, War-
ner, and Grimshaw.
Coach Matt Mann praised the
members of the team for their
efforts in winning the Big Ten title
for the third straight year and;
taking second to Northwestern in
the national collegiate meet. Direc-
tor Yost, Spindle, Ault, and Pro-
fessors Brier and Levine, represent-
ing the faculty swimming group,
were also among the speakers.
The banquet concluded with the
presentation of a golf bag and set'
of clubs to Coach Mann in recog-
nition of his loyalty and services
to the promotion of swimming. The
clubs and bag were a gift from the
Varsity team and the faculty swim-
ming class. The graduating mem-
bers of the team, Spindle, Hubbell,
Watson, Seager, and Bailey, also
came in for an ovation.

advantage of the chance to trounce
the Chicago White Sox, 6 to 1.
Bucky Harris, Tiger manager,
sent George Uhle to work on the;
mound and the ex-Indian turned
in a good game. This makes
Uhle's fourth straight game he has
won this season. To put a climax
to the game Charlie Gehringer
smashed out a home run in the
ninth and brought in two of his
team mates ahead of him. Detroit
collected a total of nine hits off
the White Sox's moundsman,
Thomas, while Uhle allowed only
five hits to the Sox.
In all other cases games were'
called in both of t1~e leagues due
to the cold weather prevailing
throughout the country, or the
grounds were too wet on account
of the two days drenching they re-
ceived.

Coach Fisher That Diamond At
Kalamazoo Unfit For Play
MEIJI NINE HERE MONDAY
Muddy waters caused the cancel-
lation of two more games on the
Michigan baseball card when yes-
terday's contest with Colgate and
today's encounter with Western
State Normal school were definitely
dropped from the schedule. Thurs-
day's downpour converted Ferry
field into a veritable mire, making
playing conditions impossible.
Western State officials advised
Coach Fisher yesterday that the
diamond is inundated, forcing can-
cellation of today's game. The
Wolverines will next see action on
Monday, when Meiji university of
Japan will come here for the first
of a two-game series.
If the elements relent, Coach
Fisher will hold a practice session
after the Iowa track meet this aft-
ernoon. It is expected that the
diamond will be dry enough to per-
mit a short workout. The players
,have been forced to lay off since
last Wednesday.
Weather conditions have been the
worst he has experienced in his
nine years at Ann Arbor, according
to Coach Fisher. Rain and wet
grounds have'caused the cancella-
tion of six games on the Wolverine
schedule. Two games with Colgate,
and single contests with Vander-
but, Iowa, Syracuse, and Western
State Teachers College have been
eliminated by the elements.
The Michigan team has been
without a game since April 27,
when Syracuse scored a 5-3 victory.
The last Big Ten contest was on
April 17, when Michigan defeated
Northwestern. The next Confer-
ence game will be played May 11
against Illinois. Until then the
Wolverines are assured of first
place in the standings with their
lone victory.

Barnard Sure Yanks
Will Have Trouble
(IBy Associated-Press)
CHICAGO, May 3.-After a swing
around the circuit, President E. S.
Barnard is more convinced than
ever that the Yankees have a real
fight on their hands in the Amer-
ican league pennant race this sea-
son.
"Just keep your eyes on Phila-
delphia." Barnard hinted. "They
are going to surprise everybody.{
They are dangerous from the top
of the batting order down to the
eighth man.
"The Yankees so far have shown
they do not have the steadiness of
recent campaigns. This is indicat-
ed by their record of this spring as
compared to last. At this time in
1928 they had rolled up a record
of 11 victories. ,

watching."

be expected to shoot low scores in
their play today.
