Wistert Pitches Brilliant Relief
Game, Striking Out Nine
in Six Innings.
Michigan Overcomes Four-Run
Lead to Conquer Buckeyfes;
Manuel Slams Triple.
By Roland Goodman.
With "Whitey" Wistert doing a
splendid job of relief pitching,
Michigan evened its baseball series
with Ohio State yesterday at Ferry
field. Capping off the game with
a five-run rally in the sevenths in-
ning, the Wolverines came from be-
hind to win, 7 to 5.
Wistert stepped.in in the third
inning after "Lefty" McKay had
faded in his first Big Ten start of
the season, with three runs already
in, Michigan four runs behind, two
men on bases, and only one out. He
set down the next two batters and
held Ohio to one run thereafter,
though in trouble several times. He
struck out nine men in the six and
two-thirds innings he worked.
Both first basemen starred afield.
Manuel, of Michigan drove out a
triple that got the seventh inning
off to a good start. Fitcher, Ohio
first-sacker, handled 11 chances
smoothly though weaker at the
Condon Taken Out.
For a while it seemed that Con-
don, the starting Ohio pitcher,
would i keep Michigan well under
control. He allowed one hit in the
first three innings, but two singles,
and an erlror, let in two runs for
Michigan in the fourth, and he was
removed when the seventh inning
spree had reached its height.
Daniels opened the seventh by
going to second on a bad throw by
Hale, Ohio third baseman. Weis-
heimer had dropped Daniels' high
foul a minute before, giving him

HOPEWELL, N.J., May 14.-(A)-Pages of intriguing details,
indicative of even more important information beneath the shield of
police secrecy, came to light tonight in the relentless pursuit of the
Lindbergh baby killer.
An outline of the two months negotiations caried on along the
Atlantic seaboard with a 50-man gang by John Curtis became public
even as another intermediary, 72-year-old Dr. John F. Condon, who

Petosky's double nearly to the ten-

in to give lMichigan five runs on

one to Vidis to close the inning.
Ohio Scores First.
Ohio scored first in the second
inning. Condon was safe at first
when Waterbor fumbled his drive
to short, and advanced to third on
a bunt by Vidis and Hale's ground-
er to first. One of McKay's wild
pitches hit Long on the knee and
he limped to first. A moment later,
apparently totally recovered, he.
and Condon executed a double steal'
that had the Michigan infield l
guessing and scored . the pitcher
when Difflcy dropped Wa'terbor's
hasty throw.
In the third inning Ohio filled
the bases with none out, when
Weisheimer walked, Wilder beat
out an infield hit, and Gutter was
hit- by a pitched ball. Daniels cut
off one run by a throw to the plate,
but singles by Condon and Vidis
brought three runs in. Wistert then
was put in and struck out Hale and
forced Long to pop to Daniels.
Tompkins got to third base in
the second after singling, but Mich-
igan did not score until the fourth.
In that inning Artz singled and
went to second on a ball. Tomp-
kins was safe when Vidis dropped
his fly to left, and Diffley's single
scored both of them.
Double Play Stops Score.
A fast double play, Manuel to
Watcrbdr, prevented an Ohio score
in the eighth after Long was hit by
one of Wistert's pitches and went
to third on Fichter's double, a wal-
lop through first that was too hard
for Manuel to handle.
Wistert capped his performance
by striking out three men in the
ninth, though Ohip managed to
score a run. Baumgartner was safe
on first after Waterbor fumbled his
grounder. Wrigley. Ohio's star

151/-2'/2 Victory Gives Ohio
Big Ten Dual Meet Crown;
Lenfesty Only Winner.
(Special to TJhe Daily)
COLUMBUS, Ohio, May 14.-Ohio
State's star golf team overwhelmed
the Michigan linksmen 15 1-2 to
2 1-2 here today. The victory by the
Buckeyes cinched for them the dual
meet championship of the confer-
ence. This meet was the only one
that the Wolverines have lost all
Captain Jack Lenfesty won all
of the points the Maize and Blue
squad secured, by taking 2 1-2
points from Berry while Bob Kep-
ler, star number one of the Scarlet
and Gray won handily from Johnny
Fischer, capturing all three points.
Johnny Florio, diminutive Italian
golfer swept his match with Alex
Jolly as expected in the second
singles. Lenfesty followed with his
win over George Berry, but the final
singles match saw Ed Dayton of
the Wolves lost all three points to
Percy Garver.
Kepler and Florio teamed up to
shoot a best-ball of 66, easily de-
feating Fischer and Dayton in the
first foursome match. In the other
four man event Garver and Berry
defeated Jolly and Lenfesty.
A heavy rain interfered with the
foursome play in the morning but
the singles play in the afternoon
found the weather clear but the
hilly course quite heavy. According
to Coach Trueblood the Buckeyes
were the best balanced squad that
has ever faced a Michigan group.
Bob Kepler turned in a 69 as the
low medal score for the day. John-
ny Florio registered a 72 while three
of the Michigan contingent, Len-
festy, Dayton, and Fischer, along
with Garver of Ohio carded 74's.
Alex Jolly, the other Michigan man,
shot a 75.

Condon, Curtis Tell Stories.
Dr. Condon paid a $50,000 ransom
for Col. Chas. A. Lindbergh to a
man in the dusk of a Bronx ceme-
tery on April 2. Curtis and two Nor-
folk associates began their nego-
tiations on March 9 and continued
them until Thursday night when
the body of the child was found.
As these and other revelations
were bared the principals in the
tragic drama maintained an out-
ward calm in their hilltop home.
Col. Lindbergh managed a wan
smile of greeting when Prosecutor
Erwin Marshall visited the resi-
dence late in the day. Mrs. Lind-
bergh, an expectant mother, who
wavered close to collapse last night,
regained her quiet demeanor late
in the afternoon.
The fantastic story of Curtis, sup-
plemented by a sea-captain's de-
scription of the boat trip he made
with Col. Lindbergh even as late as
the night of the finding of the body,
set a flotilla- of coast guard craft
to scouring an area off Cape May,
New Jersey.
Officials at the Atlantic City N.

fishing vessels were carrying more

arms but refused to estimate the

accept the proposal of the attor-
ney-general, placing the Federal di-
vision of the search under J. Edgar

would ask that Hoover get in touch
