MICHITGAN IS FAVORED
Wisconsin's crack golf squad, one
of the best in the middle west, will
come to Ann Arbor today to match
strokes with Michigan's Varsity, at
9:30 o'clock this morning on the
tricky Barton Hills course.
The Wolverines, with fifteen con-
secutive. dual meets safety tucked
under their belts, are the slight
favorites to win, although Wisocn-
sin will present a stronger front
than any other team the Wolves
have met yet this season. The
singles matches which will count
twelve points, are scheduled to be
played in the morning, while the
foursomes, counting six points, will
get unde- way in the afternoon.
Admission Is Free
In the hopesnof attracting a good
iized gallery no admission will be
charged foil the matches. Thus
far this season the crowds have not
come up to expectations but in
view of -the fine weather and the
closely matched strength of the
competing teams the gallery should
be larger than usual.
C. Hunter Sheldon, one of the
ranking players in Big Ten golfing
circles, and captain of the Badger
team, will play number one. Stew-
art and Hagan will fill positions
two and three respectively, while
either Stringfellow or Furst will
take care of the fourth position.
Michigan's lineup, with the ex-
ception of the fourth man, will be
the same as it has been in former
matches. Bergelin, Ward, and Iew-
is having their starting positions
Scinched. Either Art Ahlstromuor
Frank Royston will fill the fourth
position. Ahlstrom has had a lit-
tle more dual experience than
Royston, but the latter has been
coming alng well in his recent
matches and should star if given
the chance.
JOYCE WETHERED TAKES
BRITISH WOMAN'S TITLE
(1y Associated Press)
ST. ANDREWS, Fife, Scotland,
May 17.--Joyce Wethered won the
British women's championship for
the fourth time today when she
eliminated Glenna Collett by 3 and
1 in final round.
Miss Collett, first AmericanI
woman to reach the finals of the
event in the 36 years of competi-
tion, succumbed on the thirty-
fifth green after one of the hardest
fought matches ever played for the
title. She played good golf, but
no woman golfer in the world could
have beaten Joyce Wethered today.
Making her third attempt to
annex the crown, Glenna reeled
off the first nine holes of the morn-
ing round in 34, two strokes under
par, to become five up. But from
then on Miss Wethered came to the
fore to overcome an apparently in-
possible disadvantage.

Kentucky's fifty-fifth a n n u a l
Derby, classic of the American turf
season, which will be held at,
Churchill Downs this afternoon,
continued to draw thousands to the
site of the historic track.
Attendance records, which in past
years have been high, will probablyj
go by the boards. For the past sev-C
eral days race fans have pouredE
into Louisville. Just about all
means of available transportation
have been used. Arrangements have
been made for the landing of air-
planes, while river boats and other'
craft' are already tied up at the
Louisville wharf, with the passen-
gers living aboard.
. Trains will carry the great bulk
of the fans, however. Chicago, rep-
resented by Mrs. John D. Hertz's
Reigh Count in the derby last year
and which came through to win'
from a field of 20 starters in a sea,
of ankle deep mud, will send the
largest racing delegation in its his-
tory. Twenty-five special trains
have been chartered, while thou-
sands will travel by air and auto-
mobile. New York, too, will send
its usual crowd of race enthusiasts.
Special trains will also be run from
INDIANA NINE TO MEET
MINNESOTA TEAM TODAY
Two Big Ten baseball games, only
one of which should have much
effect on the outcome of the Con-
ference race, will be played this
afternoon. Michigan's undefeated
Conference champions meet North-
western in a return game at Evans-
ton, while Indiana's third placej
outfit tackles the cellar occupants,
Minnesota.
Indiana has shown flashes ofI
form during the early part of the
season but has succumbed to the
attacks of the Wisconsin and Chi-
cago nines. The Chicago game wasr
only a five Inning battle that wasI
halted because of rain. The Hoosiers
have displayed a powerful batting]
attack, but lack any exceptional
pitchers.
Another Conference team, Illi-
nois, will go outside the Big Ten
realm to lock horns with Notre
Dame.

ed in match play this year, so it
is easy to prophesy a safe victory
for the yearlings and especially so
with such stellar players as the
above composing the squad.

With all hopes for a Conference
dual meet championship hanging
in the balance, Michigan's unde-
feated Varsity tennis team will
match strokes with a powerful Il-
linois combination this afternoon j
on the Illini courts.
A decisive winner over a disor- i
ganized Michigan team last year
by a 7-2 count, the Suckers will at-
tempt to make it three straiight
over the Maize and Blue. Back in
1926 the Indians journed to Ann
Arbor to win over the Wolverines
by a 4-2 score, and 'carry home
the Conference championship. Two
years ago an unbeaten Michigan
team was unwilling to risk their
title hopes on sloppy Illinois courts
at Champaign and as a result the
match was called off.
Has Lost To Chicago
This year's Illinois net contin-
gent, though a sufferer of a seri-
ous loss by the passing of their
ranking stars of other years in
George O'Connell and Gordon
Braudt, has stamped itself as one
of the strongest combinations 'in
m id western intercollegiate circles.
The Orange netmen have only
dropped one match this year. Chi-
caos fast moving team upset the
Indians by the closest of scores,
5-4. With the count tied at 4 all
in matches the Illinois third dou-
bles team -was within a point of
wining the deciding encounter
seven times only to losenthe set
and match to the Chicagoans.
The Wolverine singles assign-
ments will undoubtedly undergo a
shift from the lineup presented
against the Minnesota team last
Saturday. While the first four
singles berths will probably remain
(Continued on Page Seven)

In the second game of .their
trip this week end the Wolverine
baseball team will meet the er-
ratic Northwestern nine which has
earned for itself the formidable
title of "giant killer." Today's
game will give the Purple team an
opportunity to kill the biggest giant
in the Western Conference and a
victory over the Maize and Blue will
brand them with this title beyond
all doubt and credit them with a
most weird season.
Three other teams have been
toppled from one hundred per cent
averages by the Wildcats so far this
season and in each case the con-
test began a slump for the van-
guished. Illinois was touted at the
beginning of the season to be one
of the chief if not the chief, con-
tender against Michigan for the
title, but an early game with
Northwestern started the Illini on
a slide that has landed them in
fifth place at present.
Wildcats Defeated Purdue
Purdue also hung in at the top
of the percentage column until
they were defeated by the Wildcats'
and then fell subject to a seriesof
beatings which has placed them
eighth in BighTen standings.tWis-
consin was slow beginning, then
baseball season in the Conferenee
but gave promise of an eXcellbrt*
season by winning two in a -row.
However the reputation of the"
Wildcats as "giant killers" was
strengthened by defeating the.
Badgers decisively in Wisconsin's-
third Big Ten game.
Between their manslaughted epi-
sodes, the Northwestern nIne ap
peared considerable less formifd-
able and lost four games to corm-
paratively weak 'teams. Four vie-
tories and four defeats give* the
Wildcats a .500 average and a tie
for sixth place with Chicago.

"There was a sound of
reverylyiglt'
ONCE upon a time an undergraduate carne back
from his vacation, bought a case-of
"Canada Dry" and to his friends said, "Corme
around to my rooms, this evening. ."
"There was a sound of revelry by night," as
Lord Byron put it. And if you don't believe me,
look it up in some canto or other of Childe Harold.
This is not a story of flatring youth. Or any-
thing devilish.
But just this: "Canada Dry" is the smoothest,
mellowest, most palatable ginger ale you've ever
tasted. It quenches your thirst. It has a distinc-
five flavor. It mixes well With other beverages.
It contains no capsicuim (red pepper). And it is
really good for you.
