Maize and Blue Take 10 of
Firsts; Illini Are Strong
in Field Events.


By Sheldon C. Fullerton
Coming through to capture 10
out of 15 first places, Michigan's
well balanced track team swept to
a 77/ to 56/ victory over Illinois
on the Ferry Field cinders yester-
day afternoon. The meet was run
off before a crowd of about 1,500
fans as one of the features of the
University homecoming program.
With the meet deadlocked at 40
points apiece late in the afternoon,
the Wolverines came through with
triumphs in the 220-yard low hur-
dies, the half-mile run, the discus
throw, and the hammer throw to
sew up first place. The Maize and
Blue's greatest advantage came in
the track events, where they took
seven out of a possible eight first

Illinois' only victory in the dashes
came in the 220-yard run, when
Huddy Helmich, the lanky Illini
sprint star, nosed out Do Renwick
by a narrow margin of about a
yard. Renwick had previously best-
ed Helmich in a thrilling 100-yard
dash that opened the afternoon's

ber topper, managed to win both
of the hurdle events with fast
times. He was the easy winner in
the high hurdle event, -which he
took with a time of :14.8 to tie the
former Michigan mark set by
Cooper in 1928. Carson, of Illinois,
was the only other double winner
of the meet, the Illini field man
taking first places in the javelin
throw and the broad jump. ,

CHICAGO, May 7.--(P)-Harley
McNeal held Chicago to four hits
today while Michigan batted Roy
Ilenshaw for nine blows and a 5 to
1 victory over the Maroons in a*
Western Conference baseball game.,
The. Wolverines bunched three
singles, a pair of walks, and an er-
ror for three runs in the first in-
ning, and McNeal held the Maroons
helpless except in the fifth when, a
single and a double scored their
only run. It was Michigan's second
straight victory.
The Wolverines wasted no time in
getting onto Henshaw. After Su-j
perko had been thrown out in. the!
first, Ferguson walked, Waterbor
was safe on Henshaw's error, and
Ferguson went to second. Diffley
flied out, but Petoskey singled, scor-

Manuel were walked, the latter's
pass forcing in Petoskey with the
third run.
After two were gone in the fifth,
Pat Page singled, and Lewis drove
a double over third to score the Ma-
roons' only run.
Michigan picked up another in
the sixth when Braendle doubled,
went to third on a wild pitch and
scored on McNeal's infield out. The
last one came in the eighth. Daniels

Minnesota Student
Tells Weird Story
of BeingKidnaped
MINNEAPOLIS, May 7. - (/P)
Police and University of Minnesota
officials who two days ago viewed
the disappearance of a student
leader as being a page out of light
comedy, decided today they had a
serious mystery on their hands
after his return with a story of
being kidnapped.
Richard Morean, the student, was
in bed unable to answer questions,
with his father describing him as
a "nervous wreck" from his experi-
ence. He disappeared Wednesday
and returned Friday night saying
he had been seized by four men,
his eyes bandaged, that he had
been anaesthetized, and held cap-
tive in a Wisconsin lake cottage, on
a bread, water and sausage diet.
His grandfather, F. P. Nicoll,
offered a reward of $500 for appre-
hension of his abductors and has
spurred police to efforts toward un-
raveling the mystery. Nicoll also
charged university authorities with
laxity in discipline and asserted a
student political faction "is at the
bottom of the whole affair."
Morean, after a bitter ballot :ight
was selected leader of the senior
prom, regarded as a high1honor.

Son of 'Bubbling Over'
Wins by Five LengzthsHI F RA IR


LOUISVILLE, Ky., May 7.-(P)-
The thoroughbred son of a royally
bred sire, Burgoo King, came down
the stretch today with a smashing
drive to capture the rich Kentucky
Derby, to duplicate the victory of
his daddy, Bubbling Over, in 1926,
and give the hearts of the old Blue-
grass their greatest thrill in many
a southern moon.
Burgoo King whipped the best
that the east had to offer in an un-
wieldy field of 20 strutters, and gave
his owners, Col. Edward Riley Brad-
ley honors that no turfman has
ever gained before.
An unexpectedly big crowd of 40,-
000 roared its tribute to Col. Brad-
ley's third victory within a dozen
years, a record for all-time.
Taking full command in the
stretch after being rated nicely all
the way, byJockey. Eugene Ja.s,
Burgoo King left little doubt he
was the best of the three-year-olds
in this 58th running of America's
most colorful horse race.
The big chestnut finished five
good lengths in front of his near-.
est eastern rival, Economic, owned'
by J. H. Loucheim, of New York.
Mrs. John Hay Whitney's Stepen-
fetchit, one of the favorites in the
betting, pressed Economic closely to
finish in third place.

reaffirmed its action in voting a
disposition of t h e $2,000,000,000

the slogan of bonus sponsors will
be: 'A vote to adjourn is a vote
against the bonus.'"

Patman planned to introduce a
resolution seeping a special legisla-
tive status for the rejected bonus
This would go to the Rules Com-
mittee and if approved would make
a vote possible, but Rep. Rainey,

prove it. The issue is dead this
The action of the Ways and
Means Committee places the bonus
question in such a legislative posi-
tion that a vote would be delayed
until so late that it would be vir-

The class of '35 could have won
had not one of its runners in the
obstacle race failed to observe the
rules. On a turn in the race, the
runner, in making the tirn, passed
inside o flag and was called back
by the judges. This error permit-
ted his sophomore rival to pass him
and give his class a lead that was
never in doubt to the end.
Friday the games ended in a tie,
the sophomores winning two 50-
man tugs-of-war and the freshmen
winning the free-for-all.
In yesterday's game, the sopho-
mores added two points in the cane
spree when they won three of the
six individual fights. The fresh-
men won one, while the remaining
two ended in a tie. The pillow fight
was won by the sophomores, 3 to 2.
They also won the obstacle race.
But in the final event, the "hog-
tying" contest, the freshmen, out-
numbering their opponents, suc-
ceeded in tying and corralling most
of the sophomores.
The games were judged by mem-
bers of the Student Council, Union,
and The Daily. Joseph Zias, '33,
was in charge of the games.

Fathers, Sons H e a r

by George A. Stauter
A speech that drew from its
listeners applause and admiration
-an address on "American Man-
hood"-clim Fixed the fathers' and
sons' banqut held last night in
the Union as part of the second
annual homecoming festivities. It
was given by R. Perry Shorts, of
Saginaw, a Regent of the Uni-
versity, who summed up experi-'
ences with 'en over a period of
years and placed them at the
disposal of students.
Conklin Talks.
The talk given by Regent Shorts
was the principal one of the pro-
gram. P receding him were Hugh R.
Conklin, '32E, the president of the
Union, who welcomed alumni, and
President Ruthven. The latter, ex-
tending the k'ys of the University
to the visitors, sketched briefly the
work of a modern educational in-
stitution, summing up its objectives
and placing emphasis upon two
points-the diffusion of knowledge
and the teaching of the art of
The dinner, in the Union ball-
room, was attended by more than
200 persons. 'Prof. Waldo Abbot,
director of the University broad-
In the address of Regent Shorts=
which he gave with an appealing
forcefulness, the definition of the
term "American Manhood" was
based on six points-goqd reputa-
tion, thrift, determination, brains,
labor, and good citizenship.
Stresses Honesty.
"First of all," he said, "American
manhood is a manhood of good
reputation-for honesty, integrity
and all-aroun~d dependable char-
acter. Honesty must be
all else secondary. Re
the appraisal which the public puts
upon you' qualities; it is what the
other people think of you. Qne
single act of misconduct may ruin
a reputation which has taken you
years to acquire."
In his speech he thrust aside
generalities-which he termed easy
to preach but hard to practice-and
illustrated points in most instanees
by referring to specific example
and then pointing out the qualities
which carry men to success.
Turning to thrift - his second
point-he characterized it as not
a natural instinct but one "acquir-
ed only through constant effort."
Debt, he said, ruins more men than
any other single cause, advising
students in his audience that "the
time to save money is while you
are young."
His third point, determination,
was summed up by Regent Shorts
as "the man with a fl ed determ-
ination to accomplish a definite
thing almost always succeeds. Suc-
cess has its price. You can have it
if you are willing to pay."
New Ideas Asked.
Brains was Regent Shorts' next
point, declaring that 4'scientifie
thinking has at last become the
first essential of the successful man.
Ideas-ever 'new ideas'-are the
surest stepping stones upon which
to rise above the crowd." Still
further, it is a manhood of labor-
hard work, citing that the best
proof of this lies in the fact that
all of America's greatest men in
every line of endeavor have been
incessant workers.
His concluding point was good
citizenship4 "No matter how suc-
cessful you may be in your business
or profession, you are a miserable
failure unless in addition you are a
good citizen."

Dr. Murray Bartlett, president of
Hobart college, Geneva, N. Y., and a

pal church at this morning's serv-

Dr. Bartlett was a chaplain in the
American army during the World
war. He was wounded in action and
was twice cited for gallantry. Fol-
lowing the war he served as presi-
dent of the University of the Philip-
pines and has been president of Ho-f
bart college since 1921. He comes
