The most important ball game of
the season from the Michigan stand-
point, will be played today when the
Wolverine nine opposes the unde-
feated University of Illinois club at
2:30 p. m. on Ferry Field.
Michigan, with only two wins and
two losses in the standings must
come through today to continue as
a serious title threat in the Confer-
ence race. The Wolverines have
split two-game series with both
Northwestern and Ohio State. The
Illini hold victories over Northwest-
ern, Purdue, Ohio State and Wiscon-

Mound Today

"Whitey" Wistert, hard-hitting first baseman and one of the two
best Michigan hurlers, will pitch against the hard-hitting Illini ball club
today. Wistert will be gunning for the Illini for the way they treated him
last year. He is more desirous of winning today's game than any other
on the schedule.
Last year Wistert won all but two of Michigan's Big Ten games and
he has already hurled 'two well-pitched ball games this season. Besides
pitching, "Whitey" packs more power at the plate than any of his
teammates - when he connects.

Last Minute Change
Coach Ray Fisher selected Art
Patchin Thursday to start on the
mound against Illinois, but he re-
versed his decision yesterday when
Whitey Wistert said he felt "right",
and would like a chance for revenge
against the team that knocked him
out early "in the game last year.
Patchin will be ready if relief hurl-
ing is necessary.
The hole at short, caused by an
injury to Waterbor, wil be filled by
Ted Petoskey. For the past two years
and early this season, "Pete" has
been Michigan's best outfielder, but
Coach Fisher believes Petoskey to be
best fitted for the shortstop post
"Pete" handled ,.. d ,
himself like a vet-
eran in practice
yesterday.
Fred Ratterman,
whose injured leg:
hampered him ink
Varsity sports for
three years, will.
start his first
game for Michigan
taking over Petos-.
key's center field
position.
Ted Chapman, who has caught
every inning of every game, will com-
plete the battery today.
Michigan and Illinois are the two
hardest hitting teams in the Confer-
ence. Lewis, third baseman, is Il-
linois' best hitter, and he is ably sup-
ported by the hard hitting Frink,
Toncoff, and Swikle. Either Carlson
or Masek wil pitch for the Illini.
Four .300 Hitters
Michigan can match Illinois hitter
for hitter. Captain Avon Artz is lead-
ing the Wolverines in batting with a
.413 average. Paulson is hitting .382,
and Petoskey and Regeczi are hitting
.340.
Michigan will line up in the follow-
ing batting order: Artz, right field;
Oliver, third base; Petoskey, short-
stop; Paulson, second base; Wistert,
pitcher; Regeezi, left field; Ratter-
man, center field; Chapman, catcher;
and Lerner, first base.
Students will be admitted free with
athletic coupon books. General ad-
mission is 25 cents.

Moreland today gave evidence they
were very much on their games as
they each shaved two strokes from
par in conquering St. Andrews to lead
their Walker Cup teammates through
another series of practice rounds,
Moreland, voted by the old St. An-
drews' caddies tihe closest prototype
of Bobby Jones among the American
youngsters, shot his 71 round in the
morning, Fischer in the afternoon.
Fischer got his sub-par figures despite
a 5-5 finish and scored five consecu-
tive threes from the eighth hole
through the twelfth.
Smith Defeats Fiske To
Win Open Squash Meet
Ernest Smith defeated Ray Fiske in

bers, and alumni were entered, Wed-
nesday. In advancing to the finals
Smith defeated Robert Angell, run-
ner-up in the faculty tournament,
and Marvin Niehuss, winner of the
faculty tournament. Louis Westover,
Earl Riskey, and Ernie Vick were other
quarter-finalists. %

Horses Waiting ]
To Go Up At
The finishing touch was added to
preparations for the Kentucky Derby
today and all is in readiness for the
sixtieth annual running of the Chur-
chill 'Downs event, the classic of
American horse races. The Bradley,
Whitney, and Brookmeade Stable
entries were all favored in last-minute
predictions.
Until late yesterday the odds on
favored horses remained practically
the same. Cavalcade and Time Clock,
both wearing the colors of the Brook-
meade Stables were in to win, noted
at 5-2.
Fine Record in East

Cavalcade had a grand season in
the East, cleaning up all manner of
competition and smart New York
money is down on Trainer Bob Smith's
horse to win. Time Clock provided his
Maryland backers with something ap-
proximating a thrill when he was
caught in 2:10 for the mile and a
quarter.
Colonel Bradley, without whom a
Derby would not be a Derby, has
scratched Blue Again and announced
that his only entry would be Bazaar.
Bazaar is a filly and a filly hasn't cap-
tured first place since Regret turned
the trick way back in 1915. It has
become almost a custom to bet on a
colt to win no matter what the rec-
ord of an entered filly. Bradley sup-
porters, however, are lavishly spread-
ing their bills on Bazaar to either
show or place.
Odds On Spy lill
Mrs. Helen Hay Whitney has en-
tered a horse named Spy Hill. At the
Belmont track rumors have been thick

Churchill Downs
of Spy Hill doing tricks with exist-
ing records. He arrived at the track
yesterday after journeying by easy
stages across three states. During the
trip, he took numerous workouts, but
he was under wraps and nothing def-
inite could be ascertained. The Green-
table entry is quoted at 10-1.
Discovery, whose odds are surpris-
ingly low at 5-1, is conceded a good
chance for a money position. Entries
such as Thomasville, Bender's First,
and Prince Pompey will most likely be
scratched, yet there remains a chance
that their owners may submit their
final announcements. Riskulus, a mid-
western horse is quoted at 40-1 and
Sir Thomas is listed at 35-1. Both
colts are considered to be the best
of the long shots.
Two Question Marks
Peace Chance and Mata Hari are
the general question marks of the
day. Both horses have been giving the
bookies different varieties of head-
aches. Sums amounting to as high
as $16,000 have been listed on the
books all winter. When one sees that
the odds are as high as 6-1 on both
horses, there is a general lifting of
the eyebrows in the direction of E. J.
Widener owner of Peace Chance, and
the backers of Mata Hari, who for all
of her great money record, is a filly.
Indications point to a crowd ap-
proximating 60,000. There will be no
mudders in the race tomorrow; the
track is dry and the horses will take
a light workout this morning. The six-
tieth race is about to be run and there
will be a great many more people
going for a ride than just the jockeys
and their mounts.

Hoyt Says Meet
Is A Toss -Up;
Ilinois Strong
Sixty Men Will Compete;
Wolverines Ilandicapped
By ManyInjuries
"It looks like a toss-uip to me,"
said Coach Charlie Hoyt of the Wol-
verine track team concerning the
meet with Illinois at 1:30 p. in. this
afternoon.
"As far as predictions go I can't
,ay a thing. I don't know how strong
Illinois is. And we're weakened
pretty much by injuries. Ellerby,
-Kemp and Barnes are definitely out,
and I can't tell what sort of shape
Ward is in, not having seen him
practice all week."
When further questioned about
Ward he said, "I'll see how he looks
tomorrow. If he's definitely off form
I probably won't use him very much."
Outlook Is Gloomy
Toss-up or no toss-up, things look
pretty gloomy for the Wolverines.
If they win today a lot of people will
be surprised. Wise money in this
locale favors the Illinois thinclads to
win from Michigan for the first time
since 1929.
It might be mentioned right here
that whatever happens on the Ferry
Field track today will not be indica-
tive necessarily of Michigan's
strength for the
Conference meet,'
in May 19, because<
by the time the
big meet is due the;
team will have
reached a point in
the matter of con-
ditioning that will
make it a strong
bet to win.
Some of the
Wolverine track-
sters went through a light workout
last night. At 4:30, however, Coach
Hoyt gathered all his men together
for a final talk before the meet. It
was pointed out that with four men
on the injured list, the remainder of
the trackmen would have to produce
just that much more. A great deal
of responsibility will rest on the
shoulders of Michigan sophomores.
The Illini squad arrived in town
last night, over 30 strong. They are
expected to warm up sometime this
morning in preparation for the open-
ing gun. Led by Co-Captains Dave
Cook and Chin Kamm their squad
included such men as Marsh Miller.
Hunter Russell, Huddie Hellmich,
Hal Christiansen, Lynn Baughman.
Vern Landmneier, Bill Knight, Jack
Dufresne, Elmer Ruhnow, Jimmy
Pierce, Earl Jansen, Crain Portman,
Irv Seely and Oliver Barron

& BY-PLAY

I----- By At. N1EW M A N-
Youth vs. Age. . . .
IT WAS MY IMPRESSION that the cash customers at the professional
tennis matches last night in the Intramural Building were very well
satisfied that they had gotten their money's worth. They should have been
. . . such tennis as was exhibited last night by Messrs. Tilden, Vines,
Chapin, and Gledhill has a good deal of appeal even to the spectator who
doesn't know a tennis ball from the Golden Apples of Hercules.
There were oh's and ah's from the Ann Arbor gallery when Al Chapin
and Keith Gledhill began to warm up for the first singles event of the evening
on the heavy canvas surface used as the indoor flooring. It became apparent
from the outset that this was something of a different game from that played
on an outdoor court of any kind.
The ball, in bouncing, refused to slow up except in the case of reverse
spins; and a series of drives increased in speed from player to player until a
drive was either placed out of reach or, quite commonly, reached a speed
where it was nearly unreturnable. The premium on the indoor game is speed.
The lanky, younger Gledhill looked quite impressive in defeating Chapin.
His service was considerably more of an asset than was- Chapin's, and his
longer arm flashing accurately through a deadly forehand drive was largely
responsible for his supremacy in play: His victory was in two straight sets.
Score one for youth.
A BURST OF APPLAUSE greeted Tilden and Vines as they took the court.
Play was called after a too-perfunctory warmup and as a result the early
games were somewhat disappointing. Vines ran out the first set easily at 6-2.
But the next went to Tilden. Thoroughly loosened up without being tired,
the older player's crisp forehand and deadly backhand (the best of the four
on display) overbalanced Vines' flat-driving hard-hitting game..
But Tilden began to have trouble with his legs, and Vines ran out the
third set and match without a great deal of trouble. The Tilden temperament
flashed through several times during the match, inexperienced ball-boys
and linesmen getting somewhat on the sensitive Tilden nerves.
But it was all forgotten when the doubles came around. Tilden forgot his
grievances and began to thaw, although it might be said that clowning did
mar his play somewhat. Vines and Gledhill were too effective as a team,
and Tilden and Chapin went down after a second set which was deuced after
going to set point in favor of the former.
HAVE LONG WONDERED about the incentive to win in a professional
match, and I am now satisfied that it is as great as in the most momentous
of amateur contests. Everyone is out there to win; don't think otherwise.
They desire to win for the sheer love of victory and also because they realize
that without the desire professional tennis would be a very dull business,
indeed. And it decidedly is not.
So Vines and Gledhill won both singles and doubles, thereby sadly prov-
ing that youth will be served no matter what the experience and sagacity of
age may do for a tennis player. The arms and the brain do their work, but the
legs don't function so well..

Stadium Scene
Of Annual Gad
Practice Game
Kipke's Blue Jerseys To
Meet Cappon Coached
Squad At 4_p.m.
At 4:00 p.m. today the annual game
marking the climax of spring foot-
ball practice will be played in the
stadium. For two months the aspi-
rants for Coach HarrynKipke's 1934
eleven have been practicing on Ferry
Field.
They began with the most elemen-
tary fundamentals of the game and
gradually began learning new plays
and formations until now they are
in practically as good form as they
would be in mid-October.
Squad Is DMded
The squad hastbeen divided into
two teams. On team number one
coached by Coach Franklin C. Cap-
pon are most of the new-comers to
Michigan football. It is made up in
the greater part of freshmen and
while there is a sprinkling of veterans
on this team which will appear on the
field in yellow jerseys, the starting
line-up will be comprised mostly of
the men who will make up Michigan's
team two and three years from now.
Team number two is coached by
Harry Kipke and on this blue-jerseyed
team are most of the veterans from
last season's championship outfit.
Captain Tom Austin will lead this ag-
gregation and the only man in the
forward wall who has not had Var-
sity experience is Matt Patanelli, giant
freshman end.
For the last few days both coaches
have had their teams practicing place-
kicking which is an indication that
they expect a hard-fought, nip and
tuck battle. The freshmen are fight-
ing to receive fn-,
vi-tations to pray-
tice with the Var-
}A sity squad next
r. September while
the older men on
the team are just
as eager to be
among those asked
back by Coach
;..;"Kipke a n d his
staff.
A passing duel
agsrf .. between Barnett of
the Yellow team
and Aug of the Blue is expected to
be one of the high spots of the game.
Both men are fine passers and with
John Rieck on the receiving end
of Barnett's tosses and Patanelli being
the target for Aug's throws plenty, of
passes should be completed.
The public address system will help
to furnish the atmosphere of the reg-
ular season and a good, hard game is
predicted by both coaches as the re-
ward of the spectators who come out
to watch it.

Linksmen Meet
111ini In Quest
For'Third Win
Michigan's Varsity golf team will
be after its second Big Ten victory
when they meet Illinois' today at the
University golf course. Match play will
be used with the doubles teams tee-
ing off promptly at 9 a~m. and the
singles matches beginning at 1:30 p.m.
For the first time this year six-
man rather than four-man teams
will be used. It is expected that this
move will bolster Michigan's chances
of victory considerably, for Coach
Trueblood can now make use of more
of his remarkably well-balanced
squad.
Both lincups have been announced
as far as the morning's doubles play
is concerned. ;Michigan's number one
and two teams will be the same ones
that won all but one point from
Northwestern last Saturday. Captain
Dayton and Chuck Koesis will meet
Baker and Hill of Illinois in the first
foursome, and Woody Malloy and
Cal Markham will be pitted against
Hloffman and O'Neal.
The third Wolverine combination
will be a new one. Larry David and
Dana Seeley will team up against Barr
and Miller. David is a letter man.
from last year and shot excellent goli
in this year's opener against State.
There is a good possibility that Milt
Schloss or Carrol Sweet will substi-
tute in the afternoon's singles play
for the Wolverines.

Tilden In Both
Tennis Matches
(Continued from Page 1)
was working more smoothly, and with
Tilden double-faulting twice in the
match game, won easily, 6-3.
Taking it easier in the first set
of the doubles match, Tilden dropped
several of his backhand shots into
the net. Four long duce games in
which he and Gledhill took shot after
shot from each other's recquets in
mid-air again demonstrated Tilden's
peerlessness when he wishes to exert
himself.
In the final set Chapin justified his
position with the troup by some fast
work at the net, and killing drives at
the crucial moment at match point.
The set went to 9-7 before Vines sent
a burning forehand down the side-
line to Tilden to take the point.
Gledhill, showingtstellar form in
half-volleys and net play, took the
preliminary match withChapin With-
out much difficulty.

Vines Still Respects Big
Bill When He Is Rested
That Big Bill Tilden is not as good
as he was during his playing peak
from 1923 to 1928 is the opinion of
Ellsworth Vines, his opponent on
their exhibition tour, who made a per-
sonal appearance before a packed-in
audience yesterday afternoon in Na-
tural Science Auditorium. He spoke on
"The Technique of Tennis."
Vines attributed this decline to the
natural effects of age, pointing out
that the "old Master" was 41 years
old, and that the effects of the ex-
hibition tour, playing four or five sets
every night, were too muQch. Given
proper rest, however, the former
American Amateur champion claims
