Indiana Whipped Michigan
In Last Meeting Between
Teams At Bloomington
Indiana University's ball team,
holding second place in theConfer-
ence standings, will play the Wol-
verines in a return engagement this
afternoon on Ferry Field. The game
will start at 2:30 p.m. The Hoosiers
were the first stumbling block on
Michigan's recent three-game road
trip, whipping the Wolverines, 10 to
9,. at Bloomington.
"Whitey" Wilshere, Indiana's great
southpaw,who has lost only one game
in two years, and that to Michigan
last season, will hurl for the Hoosiers.
"Whitey" Wistert is Coach Fisher's
nominee to ascend the mound against
Indiana. In these boys, the fans will
see the two best pitchers in the Big
Ten hook up in a game that should
be the tightest hurling duel of the
Huffman Leads Hoosiers
In order to finish with a .500 aver-
age, the Wolverines must defeat In-
diana today and beat Iowa next Sat-
urday. Michigan is in sixth place in
the standings, but two victories would
put the Maize and "Blue team in third
place after the final tabulation is
Hitting the ball at a .463 clip, Huff-
man leads the Hoosier hitters. Ho-
worth and; Dugan are also hitting
hard with marks of .383 and .333 re-
spectively. In the Michigan game at
Bloomington, Howorth's single in the
ninth scored Captain Dugan with the
winning run.
After a three-game siege of faulty
fielding, the Wolverines snapped out
of their fumbling habits in the night
game with Toledo University, Wednes-
day, and are primed to give Wistert
excellent support in his attempt to
humble Wilshere and the second-place
Lerner Comes Through
With Wistert in the box, Joe Lerner
will play first base. Joe proved that
he has the stuff to come through in a
pinch, when he pinch hit for Wilson
in the Toledo game with two out
in the ninth, the bags loaded, Mich-
igan trailing 3 to 1, and came through
with a line single to right field, after
taking two strikes, to tie the score and
enable Michigan to eke out a 5-3 vic-
The rest of the lineup will remain
unchanged with Artz in right, Oliver
at third, Petoskey in center, Paulson
at second, Regeczi in left, Waterbor at
short, and Chapman catching.
The Wolverines clubbed two re-
serve southpaws all over 'Ferry Field
in practice yesterday, preparing for
Indiana's ace, but then, these re-
serves aren't Wilsheres. Petoskey led
the onslaught with five hits for five
trips tothe plate.

Star Dust Ionor Awards....
THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR draws near and honor societies ride
nightly in search of new members. Michigamua, Druids, and Sphinx
have selected their annual complement of outstanding Michigan athletes
rom the junior and sophomore classes. The only ones to be neglected in the
general shower of awards are the freshmen. We propose to remedy that
ituation with the Star Dust Honor Award which will be bestowed annually on
he outstanding freshman in each sport. The award is entirely without
tangible reward. There are no keys, pins, dues, or certificates. If those named
will call at the Press Building they will receive, free, three extra copies of this
ssue of The Daily:

Wilbur Shaw (left) of Indianapolis, and Kelly Pettilo of Los Angeles
are leading contenders in the annual 500-mile race at the Indianapolis
Speedway. Petillo holds the pole position as a result of his record-

119.329 miles an hour and his fastest lap was over 122 miles an hour. '

Detroit Net Star To Play Here
Elizabeth Blackman, one of the out-
standing players on the tennis courts
of Detroit, will come to Ann Arbor
this noon to give an exhibition. She
will play at the Palmer Field courts
at 2 p.m. It is hoped that Helen
Alexander, runner up in the city local
tournament last summer will play op-
posite her.
Steve Lewis, Ann Arbor men's
singles champion, will also be there.
Whether the matches will be singles
or doubles competition has not yet
been decided.

Seven Win Life Saving Certificates
After an eight-weeks' training pe-
riod in preparation for the examina-
tion, seven women successfully passed
their Life Saving tests given at the
Ypsilanti pool this week.
The women who won the awards
are: Irene Lyon, Leila Wilson, Ruth
White, Henrietta Freund, Lucille
Wyman, Jean Hayward, and Therle
Wagner. They were coached by Miss
Laurie Campbell and Miss Irene Field.
Competing in a sea of mud, Har-
vard's track and field team sprang an
upset today by leading all rivals in
the battle for qualifying places for
the ,Intercollegiate A.A.A.A. cham-
pionships, to be decided . tomorrow.
The Crimson squad took 10 places,
while Stanford and Yale, favorites for
the team title, qualified eight and
seven men, respectively, after each
suffered setbacks.

To Tie For Third
Detroit's Tigers lost the deciding
game of the series to Philadelphia
yesterday,. 9 to 7, but rose to third
place in the American League. On
Thursday they defeated the Athletics
but dropped to fourth place. It's all
because the American League teams
are closely bunched that this phe-
nomenon of the percentages occurs.
After spotting the Athletics, five
runs in the first two innings yester-
day, Detroit came back in the sixth
to tie it up, but Philadelphia rallied
again to sew up the game in the
eighth. Other results:
American League
Cleveland 18, Boston 3.
Chicago 7, New York 5.
Washington 9, St. Louis 3.

The ervice
that atisf es

Smarting from the sting of a 7-2f
defeat at the hands of Michigan State
yesterday at East Lansing, the Uni-
versity of Michigan tennis team will
close its net season at 2 p.m. todayt
when the Chicago Maroons meet thet
Wolverines on the Ferry Field courts
for the dual meet championship of
the Western Conference.
Neither of the teams have met
defeat in dual competition this sea-,
son, although Michigan was tied by i
Illinois, 3-3, in an early spring match,
Siegel and Kahn being absent from
the Wolverine lineup.
Coach John Johnstone advises all
tennis enthusiasts who would like to
see what the Big Ten tournament at
Chicago was like to see the matches
today. "It will be the best exhibi-
tion of tennis here this year," the
mentor said last night.
Davidson, Siegel Meet
Max Davidson, Conference singles
champion, who defeated Seymour
Siegel in the finals at Chicago, 6-3,
6-3, will again oppose the bespecta-
cled Wolverine star. Trevor Weiss,
co-holder with Davidson of the Con-
ference doubles crown, will also be
there, opposing Joe Appelt at number
two and playing in the doubles.
The rest of the Chicago team is,
made up of Ell Patterson and Charles
Tyroler. They were prominent in the
tourney at Chi'cago, in both singles
and doubles matches. Dan Kean will
play Patterson and little Howard
Kahn will tackle Tyroler.
The severity of the defeat at the
hands of Michigan State can possi-
bly be laid to the fact that John-
stone made a last minute change in
his line-up and left Dan Kean and
Howard Kahn at home. Kean has of
late been in an extended slump, and
it was thought a rest would do both
good before the matches today.
Milt Eskowitz and Don Nichols
went in place of Kean and Kahn. Es-
kowitz won the only Wolverine sin-
gles victory. He trimmed Guy Stone-
breaker, of State, in a long match,
6-4, 8-6. Nichols lost to Willard
Klunzinger, 2-6, 7-5, 1-6, in the only
three set singles match of the day.
Weitz S-till Undefeated
In other singles tilts, Sam Siegel
lost, 2-6,. 1-6, to the two-handed
driver, Stan Weitz whose two year
string of victories has yet to be bro-
ken; Rex Norris, of State, was more
hard pressed in winning over Joe
Appelt, 6-4, 6-4; Bill Bowles lost to
Don Link, 5-7, 3-6; and Captain Clint
Sandusky was downed by Bill Loose,
1-6, 2-6.
Appelt and Nichols proved them-
selves a good doubles combination for
the second time this year, when they
defeated Link and Loose, 6-3, 8-10,
8-6, and finished the Michigan scor-
ing for the day. Siegel and Bowles
lost to Weitz and Norris, 1-6, 6-4,

FOOTBALL - MATT PATANELLI, Elkhart, Indiana. He was selected
to receive the Chicago Alumni Trophy at the conclusion of spring practice
and will be fighting with Ward, Malashevich, and Johnson for a regular end
position this fall.
WRESTLING - FRANK BISSELL, Pittsburgh, Pa. Was the second best
wrestler, pound for pound, among Keen's Varsity and freshman outfits. Will
wrestle at 155 pounds, probably. Bissell was the work-horse of the squad
this year, taking on all comers, regardless of weight.
SWIMMING - JACK KASELY, Oak Park, Iillinois. The swimming fool
who almost won the National A.A.U. breast stroke title this year, pushing
the redoubtable Leonard Spence to a new record. What a medley relay team
Michigan will have next year!
TENNIS - JOHN RODRIGUEZ, Ponce, Porto Rico. A tall, husky stroker
whom Coach Johnstone expects to be playing near the No. 1 position on next
year's Varsity.
co-captains, we pick co-stars. One of the co-captains told us that both of
these boys were very good. Heyliger, a forward, is from Concord, Mass. Berry-
man plays defense and comes from Detroit, whence came his redoubtable
predecessor, Ted Chapman.
BASKETBALL - HARRY SOLOMON, Detroit. Played with Manny
Fishman on a great Northern team several years ago. Tall and smooth, he has
an over-hand shot that makes him hard to guard. Good eye and knows his
basketball through and through. Won numerals at Ypsi Normal last year.
BOB OSGOOD. It's obviously impossible to pick the best out of a group
of men competing in different events. These four, however, are the men
Hoyt expects to get points for him next year. Brelsford's 1:57.2 in the half-
mile is two seconds better than the former freshman record. He also runs the
mile in 4:27. Stoller is Hoyt's choice to relieve Ward of the sprinting duties
next year and the only man in the Conference conceded a chance to give
Jesse Owens, Ohio State, a battle in the century. Birleson is given a plact
on the mile relay team and may run in the 440. Osgood is "quite a hurdler,"
capable of winning points in both the high and low events. Better in the
high's than low's probably.
BASEBALL - HERBERT WILSON, Decatur, Ill. He is probably the
best of the lot. An infielder. Also won his numerals in freshman football
-a big boy.
GOLF -- ALLEN SAUNDERS, Coldwater. Consistently low among the
freshmen. Yesterday showed that he is ready to' take his place with Mich-
