Double Header Caused By Postponed Game


Big Ten Title
Hopes Dimmed
By. Called Tilt
Cancelled Game To Force
Michigan To Play Four
Games In Three Days
Rain descended upon Ferry Field
yesterday with a doubly depressing
effect. Besides costing Michigan's
baseball team an opportunity to pick
up a game from Wisconsin and move
into a tie with the idle league-lead-
ing Illinois club, the postponed con-
test necessitates a double header with
the Badgers at Madison, May 25, late
in the season, an arrangement which
darkens the Wolverines' chances of
taking the Big Ten title, Coach Ray
Fisher feels.
According to the present schedule
Michigan is to meet Western State
on Thursday; May 23,. Northwestern
on Friday, May 24, and Wisconsin
twice the next day. This means that
Fisher will have to give the task of

While Ward was living up to his
reputation in the East this week-end,
Jesse Owens, the Ohio State flash,
was breaking records west of the Mis-
sissippi. Friday at the Drake Relays
he broke the national broad jump rec-
ord with a leap of 26 feet, 1 quarter
inches and yesterday won the 100-yard
dash in 9.5 seconds. This picture
shows him as he broke the tape after
running the century in 8.4 seconds
from a running start earlier this week.

At Penn Relays
Negro Star Pulls Muscle In
100 Yard Dash, But
Places In High Jump
Columbia University's flashy speed
teams and Michigan State's sturdy
distance runners, achieving twin-vic-
tory goals while Louisiana State fell
short of a similar objective, brought
the 41st Pennsylvania Relay carnival
to a smashing conclusion today before
a crowd of 30,000 spectators and un-
der perfect weather conditions at his-
toric Franklin Field.
Willis Ward, Michigan's all-around
negro. who captured the 110-meter
high hurdles yesterday in record time,
pulled a muscle in trials of the 100-
meter dash. He was forced to with-
draw from the sprint but continued
in the high jump and tied for third
place at 6 feet, 2 inches.
With the benefit of a day's rest be-
tween events, Columbia's sprinters
added the 880-yard relay champion-,
ship to the quartermile crown, de-
throning Cornell in each race. Simi-
larly, Michigan State's quartette of
milers, starring Tom Ottey and Wes-
ley Hurd, made a runaway of the
four-mile championship in today's!
final race. After capturing the dis-
tance medley trophy the day before.
It was a great achievement for the
Spartans, who had been victorious
only once before in major relay com-
petition here.
Facing a stiffer task by doubling up
in two of today's feature relays, Louis-
iana State's gallant runners were
stopped by Manhattan College in the
classic one-mile race after winning
the two-mile championship. No rec-
ords were broken in the major re-
lays, where a complete new crop of
eight championship teams was
crowned, but five carnival marks
were tumbled in an outburstof spedey
competition among second year
schools, and three other meet rec-
ords were knocked off in the individ-
ual events.,
EulacePeacock, Temple University's
versatile negro athlete, furnished the
day's most spectacular double by
capturing the broad jump with a
leap of 25 feet /inch and then up-
setting Herman Neagress, Tulane sen-
sation, a record-breaking final to the
100-meter dash.
Keith Br wn, Yale's pole vaulting
ace, broke his own carnival record
by an inch and a quarter when he
cleared 14 feet 11/2 inches, but failed
in three attempts to negotiate the
world record height of 14 feet 51/2 in-

IT LOOKS as though Umpire Buck
Slavin has won a long-standing
argument with Baseball Coach Ray
Fisher over the ability of one Whitey
Wilshere, former Indiana pitcher now
with the Philadelphia Athletics.
Slavin, who is behind the plate
at all of Michigan's home games,
watched Wilshere pitch here and pre-
dicted that he would go places in ma-
jor league competition. Fisher, on
the other hand, told his boys, "this is
just batting practice for you. You can
hit him!"
The big blonde went to the A's at
the end of the Big Ten season last
year, and did fairly well. But this
season he has apparently gotten off
to a good start, climaxing the first
two weeks of the season by shutting
out the Senators and allowing them
only two hits the other day.
Oh well, Fisher has been wrong be-

to two sophomores, John Gee and
George Butler, in order to have his
ace pitchers, Art Patchin and Berger
Larson, ready to work the twin bill.
Fisher has Art "Lefty" Settle, Russ
Oliver, and possibly Earl Meyers left
to pitch against Western State.
Reluctant To Call Game
The prospect of four games in three'
days looked none too good to Fisher
yesterday and he was reluctant to call
off the game, waiting till close to 3
p.m., a half hour after starting time,
before giving up.
Coach Bobby Poser's nine would
have been ripe picking. In the throes
of a discouraging slump, having lost
to Western State, Hillsdale, and Mich-
igan State twice, in addition to two
Conferences losses to Illinois, the
Badgers would more than likely have
lost to the Michigan club, which is
just beginning to hit and field in good
Michigan will have a chance to take
the lead in the Big Ten race this
Saturday when Illinois plays here.
Local fans will have their first glimpse
of Berger Larson, who was slated to
pitch yesterday. He more than likely
will oppose Hale Swanson, Illini hurl-
ing ace.
Meet Hillsdale Tuesday
Hillsdale will be played at Hillsdale
next Tuesday, with Gee and Butler
scheduled to share the pitching duties
again. Hillsdale apparently has a
serong team, having knocked off
Northwestern and Wisconsin.
Batting averages released yester-
day show that the team is still weak
in its hitting. Improvement has been
noted in the last three games, how-
ever. Russ Oliver is the only regular
who is batting well. His average of
.312 is topped by Heyliger's .428 clip
in seven appearances at the plate.
Kim Williams while batting below
.300 leads in extra base hits. Of four
safeties he has collected, one was a
homer, one a triple, and one a double.
Fischer And Koscis To
Face Pros On May 23
Olin Dutra, American Open Cham-
pion, and Jimmy Thompson, Austral-
ian Open winner, will offer Johnny
Fischer and Chuck Kocsis, stars of
the Varsity golf squad, their best
opposition when they meet the pros
in a best ball match at the University
golf course May 23rd.
The contest comes a day after the
Michigan team's return from the Big
Ten meet, which they are outstanding
favorites to win, and should find the
two collegiate aces in top form.
Three years ago Fischer, then a
sophomore, and Jack Lenfesty, cap-
tain of the 1932 team, met and de-
feated the Hagen-Jurado twosome,
three up in a match much like the
coming one.

hampions Are
Still undefeated
In I-M Softball
Spring Sport Competition
In Intramural Events Is
Play in the spring intramural sports
program, which includes softball, ten-
nis, horseshoes, and badminton, has
been progressing rapidly. Most of
the leagues are in the third or fourth
round and competition is becoming
keener with each round.
The games in the fraternity soft-
ball league, with 55 teams entered,
have been featured by heavy hitting
and large scores. Two rounds have
been played, and ten teams are still
undefeated. Sigma Nu, last year's
softball champions, are still among
the ranks of the unbeaten teams, and
seem destined to repeat this year.
Alpha Kappa Lambda seems to be
the heaviest hitting aggregation, hav-
ing pounded out seven homers and
batted in 25 runs in one game.
Most of the games have been see-
saw battles in which one team man-
aged to outscore the other team in
one or more extra innings. The games
are scheduled for six innings.
The undefeated teams include Al-
pha Tau Omega, Delta Upsilon, Phi
Sigma Kappa, Alpha Chi Sigma,
Lambda Chi Alpha, Sigma Nu, Pi
Lambd4 Phi, Chi Psi, Alpha Kappa
Lambda, and Theta Xi.
Sixteen teams are competing in the
independent baseball 'league, with
the Law Club, Steam Rollers, D.D.'s,
Forestry, and Physical Ed's W.W. still
unbeaten. The Law Club team showed
strength in beating the other Physical
Ed team 15-13.
Tau Delta Phi has reached the
semi-finals of the fraternity tennis
league, in which 42 teams are playing.
One singles and two doubles matches
are played in each match. Emil
Schnalp has been playing the single
matches for Tau Delta Phi and will
be a hard man to beat.
Play in the All-Campus tennis tour-
nament, with 70 players competing,
has reached the third round. Kasa-
bach, Wanty, Epstein, Sidder, Craw-
ford, Edmonds, and LaMarca, have
reached the third round. Members
of the freshman and Varsity tennis
squads were ineligible to compete in
this tournament.
Charlie Shultz, one-man reserve
team at Minnesota, has been shifted
to center by Coach Bierman, .after
playing fullback, tackle, and guard so
far this year.

They tell us that Ted Petoskey is
on his way out of organized baseball
He left for the south during the springa
training season with high hopes of;
staying with the Cincinnati Reds, but,
was shipped, almost immediately, to
Wilmington, in the Piedmont League.
His teammate, Whitey Wistert, while
not retained by the Reds was sent to,
Fort Worth in the Texas League,
where a right smart brand of ball is
It is rumored that Petoskey will turn
to pro football this fall. On leaving,
school he had to choose between the
two professional sports, picking base-
ball as having the most to offer.
Now, they say, he is thinking ser-
iously of negotiating with a pro grid
club that needs a slashing, driving
end. Petoskey, no doubt, would be
an asset to most clubs. Wally Webber
says he could be one of the greatest
ends in the major loops for two or
three years.
Bill Hewitt, formerly a Michigan
gridder, is recognizedly the most fa-
mous, and probably the best pro end
in the - country. Petoskey would bel
much like him,.using the same slash-
ing type of play on defense and being
adept at catching passes.
Webber said that he didn't think
Pete would ever learn to conserve his
strength sufficiently to stay in pro
football for more than three or four
years. Pete can't learn that there
are 10 other players besides himself
on a football team. He is prone to
fear that if he doesn't make the tackle
no one else will.
All that is great stuff to watch, and
the pro fans, who see a great deal of
{ mechanical football, would eat it up.
I But Ted would have to cash-in early,
or go the way of Jim Thorpe, who was
'digging ditches until;sympathetic
friends got him a coaching job.

The blue scoring began when Bob
Cooper threw a pass to George Ghes-

for the touchdown. The white team
showed signs of coming back when
Dave Barnett threw a 50-yard pass to
Musick which put the ball on the
Blue four-yard 'line. But the Blue
line held and threw back three line
smashes and a pass was incomplete
over the goal line to give the ball
to the Blue.
The next score came when Chris
Everhardus cut back off the left side
of the line and ran for a touchdown.
By this time the starting line-ups of
both teams had been replaced by sub-
stitutions and the blue team began to
pile up its score. Ernie Johnson, blue
end, blocked a kick and picked it up
to go 30 yards for the next touchdown.
Bill Renner passed the Blues to a
position for the fourth touchdown

DES MOINES, April 27-(AP)-Jesse
Owens, Ohio State's flying kangaroo,
took rank today alongside other great
negro sprinters of other years-Eddie
Tolan, Ralph Metcalfe and Howard
After establishing a new American
record in the broad jump with a leap
of 26 feet 1/4 inches yesterady, Owens
came back this afternoon to thrill a
crowd of 18,000 spectators in winning
the 100-yard dash in record time to
climax the 26th annual Drake Relays
The 21-year-old Cleveland lad,
bounding off his starting block like a
rabbit, instantly shot into the lead
and maintained it to -the finish. He
shoved his chest into the yellow
strand of yarn marking the finish to
tie the Drake record of :09.5 made by
Roland Locke of Nebraska in 1926 and
tied by Metcalfe, Marquette's famed
flyer in 1932, Owens was not even ex-
tended. He won as he pleased.
The finals of the two-day carnival,
which attracted a field of 3,000 school.
college and university athletes from
19 states resulted in two major Drake
records being tied and two interscho-
lastic records smashed.
