Michigan's Varsity tennis team
will match strokes with a powerful
Minnesota net contingent this
afternoon on the Ferry field
courts at 2:30 o'clock. Unbeaten
and. unscored upon, as yet, by con-
ference opponents the Wolverine
netmen Gill meet their most severe
test of the season, if past perf or -
mances of the Gophers may be
accepted as any criterion of their
ability.
A winner over Northwestern by a
6-1 score , the Minnesota racket
weilders displayed power in over-
whelming the Wildcats. "Stew"
Cornell, Gopher leader and first
performer, one of the outstanding
singles men in collegiate net circles
boasting a win over George O'Con-
nell, last year's conference title-
holder, will be the main threat of
the Minnesota clan.
Varsity Show Improvement
Coach Courtwright's men show a
steady improvement over their
early season play and steadier per-
formance characteristizes the Wol-
verine,netmen in their most recent]
practice appearances. In particular
the play of Schaeffer has shown a
marked improvement. The veteran
star has shown a serve more than
usual, accurate ground strokes, and
a net attack which should be valu-
able.
The Wolves will present a shuf-
fled lineup to the Minnesotans in.
this afternoon's encounter. The'
changes which Coach Courtwright
has determined in his lineup are
the moving of Spencer up to the
second position at the expense of
Hammer who will be dropped to the
third rung and the selection of
Schaeffer as the sixth singles per-
former. In the doubles Barton and
Hammer will pair inthe number one
position, Spencer and Moore in the
number two and Schaeffer and Ba-
con in the third combination.
Barton Meets Cornell
In the feature number one match
Captain Barton of Michigan will
meet Cornell of Minnesota. In their
only meeting in conference com-1
petition the Wolverine was success-
ful and it is expected the Gopherj
star will be out for personal satis-
faction.
The Gopher star is known as an
off and on performer.His recenti
meeting with Riel oftNorthwestern
at Minneapolis in the match be-
tween the two schools went to the
Minnesotan in three sets. After Rielt
had taken the first set by a lovec
score the Gopher turned the tables
to annex the next two sets and the
match in decisive fashion.

by lack of practice and men.
Professor Brier, James, Graham,
and many bthers from the faculty
ranks played an important part in
their team's victory. Slosson, Por-
ter, Cole, and Wheeler also per-
formed well for the victors.'
Two other Big Ten baseball games
will get under way today, besides I
the Michigan-Illini tilt to be played
here th-is afternoon. Ohio State
takes on Purdue at Columbus and
Indiana engages the University of
Chicago, in the Windy City.
Purdue should not offer the Buck- I
eyes any difficulties as they are now I
resting in sixth place on account of
dropping their last game to Illinois
11 to 8 and proved themselves not
to be serious contenders in the title
race. However, they should win this
game against Ohio if the past per-
formance of the Buckeyes is any
criterion to go by. In their last
game Ohio lost by the close score
of 4 to 3 with the Chicago Maroons
and in doing so dropped down to
ninth place. .
Coach Dean's Crimson squad
should prove a tough nut to crack
for the Maroons today, as they have
won three of their four games
played so far this season and rank
third in the standings, while the
Maroon diamondmen have only won
two out of five games played,
putting them close to the cellar
with a standing of .400. In their
last game with the Ohiomen the
Chicago Maroons turned in a re-
spectable box score, by knocking out
6 hits for 4 runs which shows their
batsmen are in good shape. A win
over the Crimson will put them up
two notches.

Team Balance Gives Farrellmen I
Power Lacked By Northern
Rivals In Meet Today
KETZ MAY THROW JAVELIN
Invading the Minnesota strong-
hold, Michigan Varsity track
team will engage the Gophers in
the second outdoor dual meet of
the season this afternoon at Min-
neapolis. As a result of M nmeso-
ta's 73 1-3-59 2-3 loss to Wiscon-
sin last week and Michigan's sur-
prise victory over Iowa, the Wol-
verines will be favored to repeat
their 1928 triumph.
Michigan's squad of 22 athletes
is conceded to be a better balanced
aggregation than the Gopher
team, which relies to a great ex-
tent on its two star entries, the
versatile George Otterness and
Captain Ted Catlin. Tolan and
Grodsky will bear Michigan's col-'
ors in the 1001 and 220 yard dashes
with the possible addition of Tar-
bill in the latter. They are given
the. edge over the Gopher dash-;
men, although Rhea, a veteran who{
beat Hester in the 220 last year,I
may give them a race.I
440 Should Be Close
The quarter mile should pro-
vide an interesting race, with Cat-
lih matching his speed against the
Seymour twins of Michigan. Lo-
mont and Benson will be pitted
against Wieseger of Minnesota in
the half mile. Monroe is Michi-
gan's only entry in the mile. He'
will have to be in better form than
last week in order to keep pace with
Strain, the Gopher miler.
Austin will be the lone Wolverine
contestant in the two mile, ani
event in which Minnesota has a
strong competitor in Anderson,
who placed in the Big Ten indoor
meet. Otterness and Potter, the
latter representing Michigan, will
battle for first honors in the high
hurdles. In the low hurdles Tar-
bill is favored over Jacobs and
Card, the Gopher entries, on ac-
count of his impressive showing,
against Iowa.
Witth the exception of the pole,
vault, the Gopher trackmen appear
to be weak in the field events. Ot-
terness and Hess should place one-

RINEHART WINS 1ONORARY1
DISTINCTION AT INDIANAi
(Special To The Daily)
BLOOMINGTON, Ind., May 10.-
Wilmer T. Rinehart. of College Cor-
ner, 0., Indiana University's all-

ficiency in scholarship and ath-
letics. He is a member of Phi Beta
Kappa and was a candidate for the
Rhodes scholarship last fall from

PURPLE GOLFERS HAVE

To Play First And Second,
Lewis Probably Third
TO PLAY THIS MORNING
Although Coach Trueblood has
not decided as yet as to the exapt
lineup which he will present this
morning when the powerful North-
western golf team invades Barton
Hills, it is probable that he will
send the strongest men possible
against the Purple. The North-
western linksmen have been im-
pressive in their early season
matches, and opened their Confer-
ence season with a 12-6 victory ov-
er Ohio State last week.
This win stamps them as a dan-
gerous foe, and the Wolverines are
sure to play their best game in an
attempt to keep their string of vic-
tories intact.. Captain Johnny
Bergelin and Dave Ward are al-
most sure fixtures in the number
one and two positions, while from
his performance on the trip against
Illinois and Purdue, Lewis seems to
be favored for the third place in
the pairings.

GIANT KILLER ROLE IS
PLAYED BY PURPLE NINE
(Special To The Daily)
EVANSTON, Ill., May 10.-Al-
though practically definitely out of
the race for the Big Ten baseball1
championship, Northwestern has1
played a prominent part in thwart-
ing the hopes of a number of other
teams.-
The latest team to be toppled
from the lead by Northwestern is
Wisconsin which sustained an 8 to
3 setback Tuesday after having won
three straight games. The two
nines meet again a return game in
Evanston later in the month.
Purdue and Illinois were the
other teams to sustain the "giant
killer" blows of the Wildcat nine.1
Purdue had been enjoying serene
sailing through the early part ofc
the schedule when Coach Paul
Stewart's team came along and set
them back with a 6 to 5 defeat.
The biggest upset of the season
was the two victories scored over
the strong Illinois team. North-
western took both games by the
same score, 4 to 3.

kee super-sluggers put the blinker
on Bucky Harris' Detroit Tigers
yesterday to take the first game of
the three game series. The final
score was 10 to 5, both Ruth and
Meusel contributing home runs to
aid in the downfall of the Bengals.
The other contender for first
place honors in the junior circuit,
Philadelphia, ran up against a stone
wall in Lefty Miller of the Cleve-
land Indians, who limited them to
six hits and held them to nine
goose eggs. Earl Averill, rookie
gardener, socked a homer in the
third.
Joe McCarthy's Cubs, pride of the
"Windy City", slammed out an 11
to 4 triumph over the Giants, Cul-
ler and Root both hitting for th;
circuit. In another National league
game, Sylvester Johnson outpitched
Dazzy Vance to pitch the Cardinals
to a 4 to 0 win over the Dodgers.

time in the last two games against

the starting lineup in the game this
afternoon with Illinois. The Wol-
verine veteran third baseman play-
ed the first few innings of the first
contest with Meiji but was replaced
by Moodie for the rest of the series.
